Hi Everyone,

So I completely fell off the blogging bandwagon last year. I got a new job in London and moved back down south... things got a little hectic and sadly crafting/blogging siffered. I really missed having a nosy round peoples desks on a Wednesday, so I'm back and as my new years resolution was 365 crafty makes in 365 days I'll hopeful be doing every WOYWW this year. For anyone that doesn't know what WOYWW is check it out here

So this week I had a proper clear out and sort out of all my craft stuff. Now that I have moved back in with my mum (temporarily!) I have all my craft books upstairs on a cute little bookshelf I got for a fiver at a bootsale and all my actual supplies downstairs next to the dining table where I actually make things. It was all in a bit of a mess and took me all day on sunday to get it sorted out but it finally is and I can certainly say that it being so organised is making me feel a lot more inspired.

Thanks for checking me out this week, I'm hoping to visit as many of you as possible. :)


  1. Welcome back to WOYWW!! EVERYBODY is cleaning up the stash piles..........I missing something, oh ya, I'm not cleaning anything these days LOL

  4. So glad you are back and crafting again, everyone seems to be in the sorting and organising mode at the moment and I find it always helps me to get motivated to make things. Good luck with the 365, I think I would struggle a bit!! Annette #3

  7. Although I'm quite messy, I do like to be organised and feel stressed when stuff sems to be getting out of hand - so I can totally appreciate you may feel more inspired now you've got yourself sorted. Good Luck with the 365 thing - it's harder than it looks, but a great sense of achievement if you do ti. Best wishes, Cindy #74

  8. Welcome back to the gang. Now you have sorted your stash, can you come and do mine, please. Looking forward to seeing your daily creations this year. Have a good week. xx Maggie #37

  9. What fantastic organisation! That looks so good and the bargain shelf - well that is something else.
    Thanks for sharing and visiting me.
    Hugs, Neet 7 xx

  10. Welcome back. I am new. This is only week 2 for me.

    Love your space and all your toys. Can't wait to see more things you will be working on in your 365 days. I made myself that same promise, but got sidelined with the flu. Will hopefully be back to crafting within a few days.

    Sorry I am 2 days late getting to your blog. I have been battling a nasty flu bug.

  12. What a great way to start the year - crafting and organized.
