WOYWW 135

I have been a good WOYWWer this week - normally I try to tidy up as I go along but then when Wednesday comes around I find all I can show you is, well, nothing really. So I am pleased to present to you a bit of a mess! So the big box holds most of my ribbons (the rest are on the wall - you can see them in the photo below) the tin on top is my 'Man Tin' which holds pliers etc. You can see my new Wendy Vecchi stamps just in front which I am pleased to say are getting a good workout!
So in this photo of the other end of my desk you can see my ribbons on the wall and my Vagabond but I mainly took this because some friends found it hilarious that I had unwittingly posted a photo of my desk before where the letters resting on my window amused them -so this is the wider shot! I really must decorate them and put them up!



Finally as I don't have anything to show you from what I've been making as it has been mainly DT projects I thought I show you the lights I liberated from the decorations box! It looks very cosy in here at night now! (I replaced the lights with the Christmas tree you can see so I complied fully with the 5th night rule!) Thank you, as always, to Julia for hosting WOYWW, do try visit everyone else's creative spaces - it's my first day back at work after the festive period so I'll try and get round as many as possible!

Very pretty lights in your room and what a great idea to make use of them at other times of the year. Looking forward to seeing what you create.

Your room is very cheery with those lovely lights and good to see a mess, but I don't think it's a mess really (Hazel, WOYWW 108) x

Hi gabrielle - your room looks great

Julia Dunnit said...

The lights look great; my conservatory is festooned with metres of coloured lights that I put for Christmas some years ago and haven't taken down. They make me happy and our guests always like them when we use the conservatory at night. I never even considered that the letters didn't spell studio, so in tune to the crafty space thing am I...how funny! Glad to see you aren't between things, or are you learning not toting between Monday and Wednesday!!

Katie said...

I love the lights! I wish ours were still up, they are so cheery! I wish my clean desk looked as nice as your messy one!

Well, hey there Gabrielle, fancy seeing you here in WOYWW. Has been a while since I played along so it's good to be back. I knew you would be all tidy and organised unlike some of us who live with organised chaos most of the time!!! Love the lights.....nice touch.

I wouldn't mind a STUD in my studio. He could pick up after me. And dust. I do like your crafting space very much with that nice big window to let in light and let you look out of and ponder your next move.

Nice studio you have there! I like the "man tin." hee hee

The lights are very cool. I've thought of stringing white lights around in my living room but haven't done it. Maybe I should look for an after Christmas sale of them?

Happy New Year
