What's in your Craft Room This Wednesday??

It's Wednesday! Welcome to WOYWW!
I was going to be clever and do before and another pictures. A messy desk and then a tidy desk, just to prove I can, but the camera's batteries went flat, hopefully by the time I've finished this post they'll be fully charged again (I'm a slow typist!)
These pictures were taken Tuesday about four in the afternoon.

Looking through the window you can see the beech hedge I've just been cutting (or attacking with the hedge cutters more like!)
On the bench this week are...two little houses...
I found one a couple of weeks ago (in my craft room swap round) and I found the other one today.. I made a few different houses/barns some time ago. I made a model of the house in my 'Never Ending Story' too (Not sure where that house is now)
I first made a clay model, covered it in rubbery stuff to make a mould and then filled that with resin stuff I think, and painted them with this Acrylic paint that came in little pots. Finished with a matt vanish.
1993 is scribbled on their bottoms (underneath...they don't really have bottoms) They make good paperweights!

Here's the floor... Sorry the picture's a bit blurry and that's not because I'm a secret drinker... the Pimms boxes are going to be cut down to hold my craft magazines.

Now it's nearly ten hours later..... and yay!! The batteries are charged and my bench is tidy! (Sort of)

So? What's on your desk this Wednesday Morning? Crunchy Nut Cornflakes? Cold cups of tea? Or something more sinister?!?
Just hop over to Julia's Stamping Ground and join in!

It's now two in the last my crafty space is as tidy as it's going to be... I've finished the freebie it's all on timer...
So it's good night from me.... and it's good night from Ted... ZzzzZzzz

Scroll down for this weeks freebie.

  3. ten hours to write a post? lol, you are slow... love the look round your craft room,though.

  4. Oooh very neat and tidy! how long is going to take you to mess it all up again? not half as long I bet! Thanks for sharing. Sunshine Girl no. 24

  5. Love your new crafty space, I think it looks like you have even more stash since the move :o) Great before and after pics, thanks for sharing. x

  6. Hi Lyn I see your craft room is definitely a mess in the first photo and now its spick and span, and Im not surprised you were tired it must have taken you ages to get it that tidy. With hugs Shirleyxxx

  7. I agree - no secret drinking - get out there and be lush in public...


  8. Hi Lyn,
    Thanks for the freebie. Can you come tidy my desk next? I never get to see the bottom of the desk and my work space is getting smaller and smaller. Oh well, thanks again.


  9. great space there and lots to see - lots of fab storage too.

    Thanks for sharing today,

    Sarah at 5

  10. Wow--want to come and clean mine---it is full of everything! Yours is nice and tidy! Thank you for the image!

  11. Batteries on my camera area always running out. I'm also convinced that my son is battery powered,especially as I found at least 15 dead batteries in his room this weekend when I tidied up.

  12. ANTS are in my craft room today. Freakin' me out. The bug man is here. There's a colony that has moved in under our house and they were not invited. I hope the $125 I am paying will rid us of them.

  13. Phew!! didn't you do well... lots of super stash here to drool over... have a good week

  14. 2 in the morning!! You worked SO hard, the desk has some great space on it now...all ready to fill with glitter, paint, stuff.....!
    Thanks for sharing

  15. Well it looked really tidy to start with Lyn, but you've certainly been a busy bee and what's all this about 2am, I think that's going above and beyond in the call of tidiness!!

  16. It's 8.30pom now - I hope you're in bed snoozing to make up for the really late night! I've never seen your desk so tidy - what happened then...driven to it for some reason? It looks ace....can you keep it , does it help or haven't you got used to it yet?!

  17. Hi there Lyn thanks for popping over and your lovely comments your space is full of interesting stuff.. and space...would not show more than my desk till it is sorted a work in progress you could call it!! Happy WOYWW101! Shaz in oz.x

  18. Impressive tidying Lyn. Your craft room looks great. I used to collect little ceramic houses when I was younger but how much more fun to make them!

  19. You have such a fab space to work in with all that storage. i love the little houses. I want to make some more little cottagy collages later.

  20. cool look around your craftroom- great post! Shaz #106

  23. Love those little houses! I didn't know they could be home made! I think your space is so big and inviting!

  24. The houses are great. And I love all your tidy boxes. Makes me want to come have a good old rummage around in them!

  25. TY for the houses...If you find the other one, can we have it? LOL ;)

  26. I'm in the middle of swapping my sewing room for my craft room, so I think I have you beat on the mess. But oh how fun it will be when it is all put away! I bet that's how you feel too. I can't wait to find all my things that have been "lost" in my room for so long, LOL tfs Tami
