Happy WOYWW!? Or is that Aah! Bisto?

First WOYWW of 2013 showing Bisto drums!
Morning Happy WOYWWers. Here's my desk this week... Okay... not much going on... the cold mocha  has been removed and the iced coke ended up having a dash of rum...That was yesterday afternoon and last night, and now...(drum roll) at last The Bisto drums as well as some of the Cocoa drums, have been painted, ready to be glued to my plastic lazy Susan, and then... spray painted with some colour I can find out in the garage... probably a touch up colour we had for the many old cars we get through! 
6 months later, drums are painted!
So, that'll be black, white... red....bronze (that's going back a few years...) whatever colour I find, they'll look better than they do now~they've waited a long time! It originally was my very first WOYWW anniversary thing I made, but didn't finish as I used paper cups with wide tops and narrow bottoms (wish I had a narrow bottom!) and I soon realised I could only get a few pens to fit.

Can't quite get on the swivel chair to take this one!
Hopefully when the new super tower revolting revolving turntable is finished (in another six months!) it with look super fab! (Okay maybe not...imagination is a very special thing!) Well, that's what's on my workdesk this Wednesday.... what's on yours? Right! I'm off to bed, this is on timer! Nip over to Julia's Stamping Ground if she's there, join in!


  1. Didn't I just see you (grin)? Yesterday (in your world), I thought you had misspelled the word, but was too kind to ask. Now I'm asking! What is Bisto?

    The drums look super, though. Happy WOYWW from #2.

  2. Cool! I really like that lazy susan supply idea. I don't have room for something like that in my studio, but I could certainly do something like that for my classroom. Blessings!

  3. Thanks for stopping by my desk :D I love those little canisters. What are they?? We don't have those here. (North Carolina) I loved looking at all the stuff on and around your desk. You have some really fun toys. I also really love that picket fence looking crate you have your pencils in. I have mine in an old plastic box. BTW.. I love a spam sammy myself. :D Have a great week. (((HUGS)))

  4. It is still Tuesday here. I never know what I'll read here. I always enjoy it. I wish I had some of those containers. They look the right size for holding my copics. I like that you are putting them on a lazy-susan. That is a great idea! thanks for sharing. Edwina Brown

  5. Hi Lyn,
    I wish my bottom was a tad smaller too....LOL Very interesting idea those drums as containers on a lazy Susan. may have to try this.

  6. Crafting takes time. Sometimes more than when thought it would. Happy crafting #13

  7. I'm sure it'll get done. Just leave it sitting out nearby so you (might) actually get around to it again soon??!! Happy WoyWW. Brigita #25

  8. Whatever color you have out in the garage--lol, Lyn, that's the same spray paint colors I use, too!!!

  9. Lovely creative desk Lyn. Well done for finding a use for the empty tubs. I hope you keep going & get it finish soon so you can show us the finished result. happy crafting Jill #29

  10. Can't wait to see your super tower......and I love the idea of your re-purposing those aah bisto containers and your old car paint for the job. Enjoy your crafting week!

  11. EXCELLENT - I love the Bisto tins :-) This will be mega useful. I hope you have a fabulous day and thank you for the freebie ;-)

    Happy WOYWW

  12. You can't rush these things, great things take time. It's going to be brilliant when finished. Had a close look at all of your stamps, they are gorgeous. I love the little car all packed up for a trip.
    Have a great week.

  13. I think we all have some of those projects sitting around waiting for us to do them. I know I have a box full of UFO's Unfinised Objects LOL Great desk shot this week thanks for sharing.

    Happy WOYWW Eliza 26

  14. There's not a lot on my craft mat this week at all... don't like the heat, it stifles my creativity!! Hope your lazy Susan makes it to completion soon, I want to see it. Helen 19

  15. This sounds a fabulous idea for a project - so useful and - hey - we need imagination and sometimes things turn out different to how we imagined they would and - dare I say it - sometimes better!!! Have a great WOYWW! Julie Ann x #45

  16. hey, things take time!! they are a great size for pens, brushes, etc. aren't they??
    i'm sure they'll be beautifully finished by the first WOYWW of 2014 :)
    have a happy WOYWW!!

  17. I'm sure they will get done at some point, for now the idea is great =)
    Happy WOYWW and I wish you a lovely week.

  18. what a great idea for storage I have a rotating storage unit which I have never been able to find again so I am thinking of trying to make one.
    I can not wait to see yours finished a really great idea

  19. A woman after my own heart with many an old car also, we dont tend to have paint though, rather t-cut.

    Great idea with the Bisto, will start saving them in the winter, not much call for hot gravy in this weather as yet.

  21. Now you've made me want to go rummaging through box items to find my lazy susan! Must be here somewhere! Love your space!
    Glenda #82

  22. Thanks for stopping by my site and sending a comment. Great idea for storage, and what a beautiful part of the world you live in. Margaret (glitterandglue) and I took our honeymoon in the New Forest nearly 41 years ago now!
    Have a great week with all the old car paint,
    kind regards, john-w #53

  23. Moving along I see! Great idea to use the drums and paint them for your lazy susan. I am looking forward to seeing it completed. (Wish I had some rum for my pepsi right now, it is hot as blazes out and they say it is another 5 days of it! Enjoy the week!Winnie#85

  24. That is brilliant upcycling--we can't have enough organizing ideas! Happy WOYWW! Sandy Leigh #6

  25. Great idea to makeover those drums and lazy susan, looking forward to seeing the finished result!

  26. Oooh a lazy susan, sounds like fun to me. Used to love painting and fixing old cars in the garage too. Sadly it's not possible, so have moved onto my bed to craft instead and raise money for others. As long as it's crafting, it's fine with me! Happy WOYWW! ♥ Karen ♥ 109 x

  27. Nice to see those bisto cans finally being decorated...looking forward to seeing the finished lazy susan! Thanks for sharing. Happy WOYWW. Caro x (#78)

  28. Congratulations at moving along that work-in-progress ... I await completion with bated breath :) Seriously, I think that is a fab idea - the car paint colours sound interesting. Hope you've had an enjoyable day, maybe with another iced rum and coke to cool you down, and have a great week. Elizabeth x #47

  29. Yup imagination is the best!!! It's when it doesn't quite become what you expected that it really sucks lol. Looking forward to seeing the finished product in 6 months of so rofl.



  30. Great idea with the Bisto drums, Lyn. I've got a Smash drum that I keep my paint brushes in, and it still says Smash on it. One day I shall alter it!

    Happy WOYWW,
    Shoshi #116

  31. Great idea with the containers! Look forward to seeing the finished project! Wish I could store stuff that way, but my cats wouldn't leave them alone! They love chewing on my markers and colored pencils!
    Bought a few promarkers off the internet the other day. Anxious to see if I'm any good at coloring with them. Wondered if I'd be able to mix them well with my Bic Mark-It markers and my sharpies. I'll have to let ya know later. Waiting patiently for them to arrive in the mail... You always do a great job of coloring! Hope I do o.k. with them. I do love my Bics and Sharpies though.

  32. Slow but sure wins the race you know :-) Thanks for calling by to visit me yesterday. I'm only just getting round to doing a bit of blog hopping to check out what my friends have been up to this week....a 6am to 9pm day with my gorgeous grandchildren yesterday sort of got in the way of blogging....but I'm not complaining cos it was a wonderful day. :-)
    Hope you have a great week.

  33. Great idea - I've done similar with cut up wrapping paper tubes, but Bisto tubs are bigger. We just don't eat much gravy :) It would take me 5+ years to amass that many LOL!

    Still, I'll look forward to seeing it finished.

    Happy (late) WOYWW!

  34. What a cool way to store pens or pencils..and they're all handy when you want one! Oatmeal boxes would work for us on this side of the pond. :) Thanks for sharing! Thanks for the earlier visit. Happy WOYWW! Nan G #104

  35. That made me laugh, the six months later gag, I mean! Cos the actual idea is'll store loads in there..just don't spin it too fast ;-) !!
    Hugs, LLJ 46 xx

  36. Brilliant. Great post - full of bright ideas and lots of humour. Thanks for making me laugh.
    Have a great week - go easy on the fumes!!
    Thanks for stopping by.
    Margaret #48

  37. Well, I would say I can't wait to see the finished project, but it sounds like I'm gonna have to! lol :) Thanks for stopping by my mess and leaving me a sweet comment already. :) Deeyll #50

  38. Happy Belated WOYWW, Lyn! I was going to say "slow but steady wins the race" and then I noticed Annie said the same! Funny how often that happens, great minds and all. I didn't read the other comments, so others may have said it, too. I think your project will look awesome once it's done and maybe it won't take another six months for us to see the results of all your work!!

    Thank you for visiting me earlier! Have a wonderful week! Darnell #20

  39. You are so funny Lyn! My desk is a mess, didn't manage to join in this week for obvious reasons!
