WOYDW Moved & Tidy

Morning girls hope you are all well this week........Well as you know my craft room is always in a pickle to put it politely and you probably know I'm always up for a challenge and after the lovely and talented miss tidy Linda Elbourne's comment last week I quote "I am having a fit of hysterics ... I don't mean to be unkind ... but ... you tidy? By next week? "lol and my BFF Vikki who I might add cheated and tidied up early on the Monday before WOYDW and took her photo early as well (Julia I still think Vikki should get a written warning about that !! lol) I thought it was time to show all you girls that Mrs Sugar can get herself organized !!!
So last Thursday I started to get sorted I cleared my desk into boxes and sorted out all the "Stuff" under and around it and by Friday Garry and I had moved the desk across the room into its new position and out of the draft I was sitting in.
So now all I have to do is swivel round in my chair to use my sewing machine as its right next to me and my desk is free from clutter as I only have the few things I'm working with out, and a few new bits I can't put away yet as I haven't finished stroking them !!! lol
And so now where I used to have my desk is just another storage area which I have yet to sort out but a girl can't be expected to do it all in just one week alone can she, so the last to photos below are to show you what I will be tackling next ...........if I'm not around for WOYDW next week you'll know I have got lost in there somewhere and will probably be found deep in my stash stroking crafty "Stuff" I had long forgotten I even had !!! lol
I hope you all have a great crafty day keep warm and if your in the mood to show us your desk & join in then just post your photo on your blog and pop over to Julia's Stamping Ground blog and join in all the fun and games at Whats on your desk Wednesday

WOW WOW WOW! What an Aladdins cave you have, it`s a crafters paradise. Best of luck sorting out the rest of your lovely space and we may or may not see you next week. hugs Val xxx

Milliesmarvels said...

OMG!!!! I am speechless, I cannot BELIEVE how much stash you have!! Your craft area is better than an Aladin's cave. I hope you don't mind but I am going to show your photos to my Hubby as I think he thinks I have the most craft stash ever so I am going to prove him wrong!

Thanks for your lovely comments on my blog. Skye is now much better thanks. It cost us nearly a second mortgage to get her here but I'm so pleased she is back to running round like an idiot :-)
As for my machines...check out this old blog to see my spaces and the machines that fill them :-)

Wow Mrs Sugar, I am impressed! very tidy desk space! The only worry i have is that you now have more storage space to fill lol! I have taken a photo which i will blog today and you will see why i took it early and cheated lmao. I dont actually have enough space to make anything at the moment xxxx

I must just say also that its snowing here :(

Three cheers for Susie Sugar ... I am impressed I am ... very impressed ... and I am on me way ... I like stroking too I do :0)

Tracy said...

OMG I would love to get my hands on your craft room and organise it, I can't stand things that aren't labeled and stored in it's own box etc. But it's your paradise and if you feel happy with it and it suits you that way then leave it, it's part of who you are, but now I know why your called Last Minute .Com, you can't find owt in time Lol!

Tracy said...

Forgot to mention that your desk looks loads better and not as closed in.
Happy crafting

allyf said...

OMG!! How much stuff? I saw he top two photos and thought what a nice tidy desk, then I saw the rest. No jealous, really :-)

Nikki said...

Susie your desk looks great and you must be happy that your out of the draft, your stash on the other hand should have protected you from the cold, that's alot of fun toys to play with. If you where Willie Wonka I'd want that Golden ticket for sure, and think about it all the omba lomba's could keep your room perfectly tidy for yah.
Hugs Nikki

Christine said...
