WOYWW 28th March 2012

Good grief... it can't be!!  Wednesday again?  Look what I found when I was out shopping yesterday?  I had to pick them up... love the packaging with all the doodling on it... almost an ideal snack for a scrappy person, don't you think?
This is my work desk at the moment... I making another of the Less Patient books with the drawers so that I can write a tutorial for it... it could take me a while!!
Sitting together on the sofa behind me are the cats... unusual for them to be up close and personal with each other so Pandy must have been feeling the chill and searched Tom-Tom for the heat!!  I know it is now officially spring and at home in Scotland they are enjoying a veritable heatwave... here in Calgary it is not so spring-like... had snow yesterday so obviously Mother Nature didn't get the memo about spring arriving...
I had a tidy up in the basement this week... and moved the furniture about a bit so both desks are next to each other now.
and my little lounge bit behind me now looks like this...
Here's the full on version... computer desk to the left, scrap room at the rear and lounge bit to the right.
If you are wondering why I am showing you my scrap space... pop over to Julia's to find out the details and the linky list of lovely crafty places to visit.

  1. I've never seen the room in its entirety since you first moved into the empty space. Now I get a clearer view of it and idea of what it's like. BTW, I see Pandy peeking her head up in the last picture. Loved it.

    And yes, I got your message and it is now gone.

    Pandy and Tom-tom looks like they've found a good spot.

  10. Not only great packaging but lovely contents too - try Golden Grahams, salted peanuts and (those stick like Pretzels - can't remember the name). Mix together and pour melted white chocolate over - let cool. Great pick and eat at parties.
    Fabulous room you have down there. Wish I had something so huge - no up or down here in the bungalow.
    Thanks for sharing am going back for another drool.

  21. Poor you still with SNOW!! It's a good excuse to stay indoors and craft. It's a veritable rare March heatwave here. Your room looks wonderful, what a space, and the little nosey puss peeking from the sofa is so cute.

  23. Scotland eh? SO that's where all my warmth went! Good thing I like the Scots, otherwise I'd be over there demanding it back! Never hear of those OMG's, but the milk choccy ones look good (don't like dark), so that's a bag for you and a bag for me then?? Nice to see the rearranged room, but I hope you don't turn on that little red stove anytime soon!

    Hugs

  25. Is it me or is this room getting bigger? No wonder you have the urge to rearrange every now and then!!
    Am loving the OMGs, wouldn't take me long to inhale a bag of them! Hurry up with the tutorial then, I need urgently to download it and then procrastinate over trying it.

    Love the sound of the OMGs - what a fab name, never heard of them before!

  29. OMG! Love that snack! You sound a bit like me - I am drawn to how something is packaged! hee hee

    Thank you for you lovely words. For some reason I had a good cry this morning. I'm sure it'll strike at a moment's notice for some time.

    I do love your craft space - which I had that much room!

  30. Those snacks need to be over here LOL they look perfect for crafters.

    Your craft space looks like the whole footprint of my house...but whereas your space is tidy you wouldn't want to see my mess.

  31. I like getting the full perspective of your room. It looks like a great place to play. I like the different organizers on your desk to hold different things within reach. I want to curl up and nap with the kitties! It looks warm and cozy.

  41. I love your bright creative space - gorgeous! - and it looks really organised too. Love your kitties!

    Thanks for your comment on my blog. My desk is rarely as tidy as it is today... It always annoys me that it takes effort to tidy it, but it gets untidy all on its own lol!!

  48. I love the idea of a food product being called OMGs! I wonder if someone will come up with something called a ROFL or a LOL? Hehehehe

    I always love your craft space, it's very clean and light and inspiring, yet also quite cosy in its way.

    And I had to ROFL at your "you say I'm a witch" sign on your desk.... love it....

    Thanks for stopping by!

  52. I think I, too, would've noticed the distinctive packaging of those snacks. It looks nice in your basement space. Happy Thursday from #151.

  53. The rearrangement looks ab fab. I really love basements and yours looks wonderful. What a luxury to have such a comfy space to work, think, relax in. As you probably know, we don't have basements in Oz so when I lived in Vancouver, I had a reputation for exploring peoples' basements.

  58. Great post Annette, shame I'm so late popping in :( Enjoyed the tour of your craft room - it's fabulous. We don't, as a rule, have basements in Scotland. The house we had in Germany did have one and I had a craft room set up there but it wasn't nearly as comfy looking as yours :) Your cats look adorable and I love their names. Hope your weekend is going well. Elizabeth x #145
