It is that time of week again and I haven't really been crafting with paper crafts at the moment I've been sewing up a storm made a 72 inch Tree Skirt had the fabric for ages and just had enough to make it into a skirt the ribbon around it is from May Arts it's a lovely think red ribbon just perfect for under a tree. It took a while to pin the ribbon around it and keep it flat without making it flip up lets just say that took a good + hour and I had to keep going at a slow pace it does have a slit in it so it will sit over top the base but I want it to look seem less so it has just enough room for the bar in the center to peak through. Now to only dust off the messy tree ... maybe it will go up this year we aren't sure just yet due to still working on the house.
So Here is my space today not much still using the sewing machine finished the tree skirt and haven't done to much to make a mess on it. I did manage to sit in front of the tv to colour in a few images for my DT projects.
 So this is what I've moved onto I've moved everything off the floor so I can have more room for this seat cushion for kitchen banquette seat in our kitchen ... it just happens to be 72 inches long too. It's going to be a dark green faux suede so it will hide my messes and clean up easy. I'm sure I'll be the 1st one to make a mess lol

Thanks for looking I'm off to visit as many people as I can

It's that time of the week where we share our desks and all our creative chaos that is going on in our spaces well. I'm testing out a new digi I've been making for Limited Runs I like to colour them in 1st and see how they look so I can see if I missed a line or anything. On the right is a industrial light we are trying to figure out for our basement bathroom have to figure out how it will all connect what parts we will need to put it all together, 
 Happy WOYWW you can check out everyone else's space at Julia's you'll find it can get addictive and also I'm having a huge destash sale link at the top of the page in my links
The Pull back of my space was going through the attic looking through all the christmas stuff seeing I have so much to dust up there it's going to take a while as you can see the stuff dolls I stick under the tree on the right so it doesn't look empty until we get presents :)

Hugs Nikki 
I'll pop around to as many spaces as I can too

So it's that time again for WOYWW so here is my space this week
I'm working on Christmas again but that happens all the time in my space I haven't stuck down anything yet on the one I'm working on just not sure if I can adding more papers or something.

So Crafty Storage asked to see our Happy Space  I like to have every thing in reaching distance or it will just go to unused till I move it closer.
The boxes hide my messes inside I do want a more uniformed look but that will take some time
seeing I have to figure out what I need to create to keep it all neat and tidy and not get too over full of stuff in my way :)
Here's a little pull back of my space so you can see it all 
My marker collection to the right along with a bunch of cards I just finished. Two tea tins to be covered with some papers and everything else is in arm reach.
Thanks for peeking at my space I"ll be around to visit as many as I can :)

It's that time again to show off our spaces this week at WOYWW. I've been working on more Christmas cards to get my total up there I'm up to 70 so far 10 of them are going off to a Caring Hearts card drive and they are just waiting to be signed and popped into the post which I plan on doing shortly. So I've been using non-traditional papers for Christmas Cards just to try and burn through my stash of papers. There are some paint chips that we where going to thinking of painting our pantry but it ended up being a deeper heritage colour choice instead so I plan on cutting these up with some dies to have some bold bright colour die cuts. Made a couple fancy felt owl bookmarks up there on my shelf great use of scraps and that's about it at the moment. Colouring more images for DT and myself the tall snowman will be in Limited Runs shortly he had to pass the colouring up test to see if I missed anything. Just have to create some more images to go with him. Thats about all I'm up to time to do some desk surfing I've managed to follow a lot of people who play on WOYWW so I can pop in ahead of the post time :) 
Here are the bookmarks up close using up Odds and Ends that I haven't used or have had for along time.

WOYWW +Winner

So Here is my Desk ..... VERY EMPTY indeed. I finished the base with the DH laughing at me the whole time as I put it together 1st attempt I should have used a square the legs where so tilted. 2nd time around much better and it's now straight but he still enjoyed me putting it together lol but I'm very happy with it. Now I just want to change out the top and the shelf then it will be a totally new looking desk with some really kewl looking.
I think I'll still need something to protect it once done. 
So here's a close up the shell I've been putting my loose stamps in Not sure what type it is
but it's beautiful. Thanks Judys DH for letting me know it's a Nacre Shell :)
