WOYWW #145

I'm avoiding today.

Wait, that makes it sound like I don't enjoy what I'm supposed to be doing, but am not doing.

I'm....otherwise distracted from what I should be doing today.

That sounds better!

I'm SUPPOSED to be working on some new stamps from for this week's release, but the siren call of the mini album I started back in February was to much to resist.  So, instead of playing with pixels - today I'm playing with petals.  I'm making flowers so I can finish up this album.  

As I said last week, I only just set up this space, so I thought I'd give you the nickle tour today.

The dresser on the left (I refinished it a year ago) holds a lot of miscellaneous junk.  It still needs to be cleaned out - eventually it will hold my fabric...but for now it is full of ribbon and quilt frame parts, and random stuff.  My printer/scanner is on top - and then two boxes full of clear stamps and a box with my glitter, embossing powders, and spray catcher sit on top of that.

The hutch on the far right holds my Creatopia, my photo backdrop (made from foam board) and the box I store finished cards.  Inside the drawers and cupboard is mostly infrequently used kitchen stuff and cookie making items, however, one shelf in the cupboard holds my seldom used acrylic paints, my box of loose patterned papers, and the adhesive rollers for my Creatopia.

The  fancy Country Crock tub is my flower bin.  I put any extra flowers in there when I'm making them.

The shelves hold my paper packs and card stock...along with other miscellaneous stuff that I reach for a lot.  The wooden organizer holds extra adhesives as well as some tools.  The plastic organizer has my gems, and smaller embellishments.  I made the little "shelves" for my few Copics and Prismacolor markers (from the same piece of foam board that I made my photo backdrop from).  My sewing machine sits below the shelf with my homemade mists.  On the shelf set to the right are jars with my buttons, brads, fine tip markers and colored pencils.  The desk drawers on the left are mine (my hubby keeps the ones on the right as his "catch alls" for when he's going in and out of the house).   The top one has paper punches.  The middle one has my frequently used acrylic paints, more storage for foam pieces and  stir sticks and my bin for quilled roses. And finally the bottom drawer has bins with my ink pads, and rubber stamps.

Someday I'll do a quick video to go into more detail...this is what you get for a nickle. ;-)
