About Me

My photo
I retired on March 11th 2014 after 26 years as a doctors receptionist. I am now looking forward to the freedom to enjoy my days doing anything I wish to. Spending time with family, catching up with friends. Playing in my Scrappy Shack, scrapbooking, cardmaking, art journalling, quilting, gardening, baking. Spending wonderful times with my beloved other half. I am so looking forward to this time in my life.

My desktop looking a tip again. I have been having yet another big sort out in my shed and this is the desk this morning:(  My DH bought me another unit from IKEA which was not the one we went to IKEA for but it was a bargain of the week and it works better than the one we went for, does that make sense.  Of course it doesn't this is me talking...

This is the one we bought, £29.99 usually £61.00, the far one with all my scrapbooks in was the one we went to get another one of. The one we got is much more suitable for all my different sized boxs and I am delighted with it.

                                 This is the far end of my shed, reorganised (honest it is).

The corner by the door, my DH gave my the plywood box from his shed, it has got to be painted.

                   This was Monday morning, I can be tidy sometimes, it never lasts though:(

If you want to see some tidy little gems or some crafty middens go visit Julia, she collects them for fun.

Here are the pictures before I filled the shed to the gunnells. I thought I had so much room..lolollooolllllll (hysterical laughter).lololollloolllooooolol


  1. You got a great bargain there She, funny how these things work out sometimes. Love the before shots, the place looks cavernous doesn't it??!!

  2. Your new shelving storage unit looks great and what a fabulous bargain. I love those extra wide drawers you have under your desk, they look ideal for storing large 12" x 12" PP's and CS. TFS.
    Have a great WOYWW,

  3. Love the new shelves. And doesn't it always look like a lot of apace? Then we start putting stuff in it and the space gets smaller and smaller...

  5. What a great workspace you've got there. I love your Ikea units, they look very practical.

    Happy WOYWW!

  6. Happy Thursday. I'm just doing a very quick blog dash to make sure all our WOYWW friends get the heads up on the BIG celebration draw over in our blog shop. Please excuse this copied and pasted message but it's the only way I can get round you all this week. If you check out my blog you will see what's keeping me busy :-)

  7. Looks bigger than my box room! Still plucking up the courage as to whether I ought to show an expanded view!

  8. Wow....what a great area and I do love the new shelf. It does make sense to have all the different cubbies with craft stuff and such. TFS

  9. Awesome shed! I know that in my case if you give me a 10x10 room I will fill it and if you give me a 25x25 room it won't take me long to fill that either. Love all your shelving and organization! Thanks for sharing. Vickie #162

  10. I love your scrappy shack.......It looked good empty but even better now it's stocked up ready to craft. Have great fun in there, & happy crafting!
