WOYWW

Afternoon WOYWWer's, thought I would be earlier today, been off work, but it so glorious, did my cleaning, showered and have sat in the garden and brushed the dog, OH is oiling the love seat and DD is putting the final touches to her art project book before going back to school tomorrow.

We went to Scarborough yesterday on the Yorkshire coast and still wish I was there, had a fab day, we were supposed to be decorating the bathroom but apart from taking off the mirror tiles, we haven't done a thing, but fear not I'm sure there will be plenty of rainy weekends when we can tackle it, have to make the most of the sunshine don't we, who am I trying to convince, I wonder LOL.

Well back to my desk, ummm, not changed in the last few days, have finally got a couple of shelves up in my craft room, (still need some more, but it's a start), as you can see below, some folks have some fab cupboards and storage, but me been a bit tight didn't want to spend loads on storage, would rather spend it on stash. So me and OH did a bit of pilfering at Tesco's, as the cardboard display boxes which they have all the kids back to school stuff in are really sturdy, you can see on my window sill the before, and on my desk is one I am in the process of covering with paper and will be used to put A4 card and paper in, emptying one of my drawers to fill with more stash.

Enough of my wittering, hop over to Julia's blog and see what everyone else has been up to this week and hope the sun is shining where you are too.

Your shelves look great and will be so useful for all this stash you will be buying now you've save on pilfering those boxes! They look good as well, and you can cover them to match your colour scheme. Good thinking! Pleased to hear you have joined the Guild, Glenda's stamps are just the bees knees! ikki x

Well I did spy a Stampotique stamp and, I think, a Lindsay Mason snowman. I agree about spending money on stash and not storage. It will all work out in the end!!

Love the recycling idea with the Tesco boxes - I do the same with the "pizza boxes" that stash comes in. :)

I always love storage that is FREE. Good for you. Those boxes will come in so handy and the one you have already decorated is gorgeous. Happy WOYWW and glad you had a sunny day before school starts for the DD.

Great new shelves and what a brilliant storage idea too. I find I weigh up the cost of everything these days, I often think, what do I want this for, I can get four stamps with this money!!! Addicted? I think so!!
