Sorry for all the posts today guys, if your looking for details of the Simply Sassy Blog Hop check this post HERE.

Check out what I've just come across? See, blog hopping instead of revision sometimes yields worthy results!!

Shopping Our Stash Weekly Challenge Badge

These girls are on my wavelength!! Totally!!
Check out their blog to see what they're all about.

I can't wait to see what their challenges are going to be and get stuck in with it all.

First up - they want us all to share pictures of our craft rooms/ areas/ spaces. I'll be back on later tonight with a few pictures of mine. You have from today until 23rd of May to get your photos entered - so no excuse!! No tidying up necessary - just bare all with the rest of us crafters.

I hope to see you there! :) xo Lou.


Update 23:33.. SOS Kick Off Challenge.. here are the pictures I promised. No editing, no faffing, just straight up craft stash..

The three following pictures are of a set of plastic draws I have which are home to my 6x6 paper packs, embossing tool, sewing machine foot, baby wipes, some card blanks(top drawer), my embellishments (middle drawer) and my acrylic stamps (bottom drawer).

This is my oh so organised PM storage - I really gotta get myself sorted on on that front. It KILLS me having to lift all of the pens out because I just happen to want the three on the bottom. They are organised into colour family, which isn't that disorganised, is it?

Here is a view of my crafting corner in it's entirety - the only addition to this is a biiiiiig purple box the the bottom left of the picture which stores all of my 12x12 stuff. Cramped? You got it in one. But the big plus about working like this - I never need leave my chair.. partly because I don't want to.. and partly because I can't!! LOL.

On the right hand side of my desk is a mini set of plastic draws. The middle draw is home to all of my stamped and digi images which are sitting ready to colour. I love flicking through that draw and seeing what is on offer to colour up at any given time. Right now you can see gorgeous Josie - all be it upside down.

The bottom drawer is home to all of my loose ribbon which I wrap around wooden pegs and secure with a mini pin. Most of this draw includes purchases from my all time ribbon supplier.. The Ribbon Girl.

Well, thats about all I've got for ya right now. If there is anything that catches your eye, give me a shout and I'll be happy to help. I best get to bed right about now - got another 6 o'clock start, my eyes have felt sooo heaaavyyy aaaall daaaayy!! xo Lou.
