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.

Not a lot going on at the moment on my desk, still in sorting mode with a little play about here and there. I am tickled pink with my new storage for punches though. Saw it on Pinterest on Sunday, ordered from Amazon on Sunday, arrived yesterday, up last night.  Has given me three empty drawers to organise and fill.

Found I can do double decker storage with inserts for my drawers from IKEA, so guess where I am off to later in the week. I reckon I need nine to go with the one I have..lol

Just popping over to Julia's Place for a nosey around other work desks, why don't you join me, come on, you know you want to;o)


  1. Great storage idea. I thought it was a funky poster on your door and zoomed in to look and it was your storage. Brilliant.

  3. what a great idea! I'm sure that does free up more storage space! Thanks for sharing you new find! Thanks so much for visiting my blog and leaving a comment! Valerie #26

  4. ...what a fabby idea!...all your punches in one spot & all clearly visable at a glance, genius!...a very busy looking desk the dress cut out looks interesting too, thanks for popping by me...Mel :)

  5. You don’t hang about, do you!
    What a fab way to store your punches though and you can see at a glance what you have unlike when they are piled into drawers like mine are. I spend more time looking for the one I want then I do actually using it.

    Happy Crafting!

  6. That actually looks like a piece of art hanging there with the bright colours of the punches against the blue.

    We crafters, if we are not spending on crafting goodies we are spending on storage for the crafting goodies. LOL

  7. Ohh, some great ideas there Sheilagh! I need you to help me organize my own craft room . . . and I need another trip to Ikea. Love you lots and lots and Oodles too! xxoo

  8. Organizing all your crafty goodies is so much fun! I think I like that part just about as much as the actual paper crafting!!

    Thanks for taking a peek at my desk this week! Happy WOYWW!

  9. You're so right - that punch organisation makes perfect sense. If only I hadn't let Mr Dunnit take the door off my room....he said I'd regret it and I haven't yet...and I'm not about to tell him, anyway!!

  10. Dont you love those shoe tidys, I have one on the back of my office door and it is filled with all sorts of packet stuff that I have purchased over the years. Must take a photo of it one day as another view of my space. Your desk looks creative. Thanks for sharing.

    Have a great crafting week
