The WOYWW that nearly didn't happen!!

Hi peoples! It's Wednesday!! And it nearly didn't happen! Computer says NO again!! (Panic!!!) Poor thing... well it has been trying to tell me for weeks now... (yes, it does make a little squeaky noise) But I'm pleased to say, freebie Wednesday should be here above this post! And I must remember to give hubby back his dongler... he has it on his car key ring and used it to move files about for me so I could do this and the freebie... Really! honestly, I'm being to think my computer is some kind of extra organ attached to the end of my hands and without it total and complete shut down of my one and only brain cell and the end of the World as I know it! Thank you John, big hug!!! Kiss Kiss!!
Here's my work bench this WOYWWer Wednesday, between Midnight & One in the morning! Yay, don't faint, it's still tidy!! It wasn't tidy... it was heaped up high and scattered, so I especially tidied it up just for the pictures! And look, RIBBONS!!! Aren't they fabulous! One of my cards won a prize, and these are what came in the post yesterday from Crafty Ribbons Easter bunny and Easter egg ribbons!!
As you can see too, my new Ikea pole thingy is being very useful. All my paints, large glitter glues and glitter paints have gone and are now somewhere else. Christmas stamps have gone, and glitter tubes and tiny glitter tubs, and other things are in little containers, cos they kept falling off the shelves and spilling everywhere! And the shelves have had a face-lift too. I covered them with sticky-back plastic in mock pine... sooo last year, (more like 1980!) but it was all I had, except for 'Smarties', which eagle-eye people might spot hiding a gab in my shelves...
Behind me now are some new 'useful boxes', which have been put to good use, and all the things that were hanging on those shelves are now all tidy...somewhere else! Bit blurry as the camera decided to 'shut down' too! (Not my day is it!?!)
pHeW... I can't believe I've kept it this tidy for more than a day!! Want to show off your crafty space? No matter how small, large, messy, tidy, on the floor or in a box, hop over to Julia's Stamping Ground and join in!!

  19. Well done with that win, and getting all those lovely ribbons to play with. How did we all manage without computers? Ours was out of action yesterday, stuck in the middle of the room while the rest of the wallpaper was removed from the living room wall. It was so frustrating not to have broadband access. I can use my dongle on my craft computer but it is slow and very expensive. Thanks for showing us all your lovely storage and stash.

  25. That is a lovely stash of ribbons you have there. Top Tip - make sure you back up your computer before it dies. I learnt the hard way!!

  26. Now, Is that a desk or a 'Craft Shop'??? It is Amazing how much Stuff you have there. Love it! Thanks for snooping around my blog!

  27. How fun to win!! Maybe our computers are related?! Mine will just wander around the screen by itself and refuses to obey the mouse commands that I try to use. Who knows? I think my computer just proves that machines are taking over! haha Star 117

  33. I'm a bad, bad person with a terrible mind, but I don't think your husband should keep his dongle on his keyring!

    But your desk is fab. So many possibilities and so well organised.
