WOYWW 123-Halloween and Flowers

So this is my work space this morning - if you're not sure why I'm posting a photo of my messy table, hop on over to Julia's blog where she hosts the biggest snoopathon!!  You get to check out the craft desks and workspaces of other crafters. You get to see what other people are making, and feel better about your own messy (in my case) space!  lol lol

Bottom left of pic are the kits I'm getting ready for tonight's class, and just above that you can see my Halloween punch - I've been punching out gazillions of little black bats - guess what tonight's project is?????????? Witches and bats pumpkins and flying (yes, flying!!) ghosties!!

Above the punch is an empty ice cream container - great size for craft storage, so I will just have to keep eating the ice cream! Also a part-finished DT project I'm working on - not quite coming together yet.  Just to the right of centre are a few pink tissue paper carnations I've been experimenting with, I'm quite chuffed at how they turned out and they are a doddle to make, AND they squash flat to go in the post, and it just makes them look better! Will add them to a later post - thinking of dunking them in glitter to bling them up a bit!

On the far right is a bag of K&Co embellishments and a few packs of die cuts and rub on's. I've had a sort out and I'm trying to decide what to do with them, cos I don't think I'll use them. 

Oh yeah, and in the front of the pic, the placemats from last night's dinner, which is, after all, only the secondary purpose of this table lol lol!!

Happy WOYWW everyone

  2. Dinning tables really should be renamed lol. I love halloween for the pumpkins and the kids but never seem to create using it as a theme ...must rectfy that.

  3. In the midst of all the Halloween goodies, I espy a very pretty butterfly and little flowers. They look fun! Do you clear all craft stuff off the table before you eat? I know I wouldn't!! LOL.
    Hugs, LLJ xxxx

  5. Eating ice cream is such a difficult job but someone has to do it! Keep at it, lol! I like the tissue flowers very much so would be interested to see how they're made.

  6. Jan, the crafty stuff doesn't get cleared for dinner, it's a kind of tidal effect......at dinner time the tide recedes (is shoved to the back of the table) and after dinner the tide comes back in :-)

    tends to only get put away when it's no longer possible to push it back far enough to eat dinner lol lol!!

  8. Great idea to be able to squash your carnations flat for posting - this large letter business is a rip off!!!

  14. I don't see it as a mess - I can see a clear system in place (be worried, your brain appears to use the same system as me!)

  15. Looks quite organised really - but glad you explained the table mats :) I'm about to send a load of stash off to Leigh who collects it and then distributes to charities and even abroad for schools etc. Di xx

  16. Hi Debs, thanks for the lovely comments on my blog. Sorry to be so behind with everything but as you know I've been really busy, and I'm still busy recovering from it all. I haven't really looked at anyone's blogs for this WOYWW and hope to do better this week! I love your pink carnations. I love making paper flowers.

  18. Sorry about the double comment, Debs - I have been having awful trouble with Blogger all day and didn't think the first post had got through! It's been playing silly bloggers for nearly a year now, and you'd think they'd be able to sort out the problems by now!
