Morning All!

This week I have been mostly working on this album...

...which is now complete apart from the journalling and photos.

I also did a little tidying.  It really was little - just one drawer

but doesn't it look good all lined up?!  Won't last long.  And just so you don't get the wrong idea about my craft room...

...not too far away is a large pile of stuff still waiting to be sorted, sigh. 

If only my room were bigger or I had less stuff...  I have sorted out 3 lots of beads to put on ebay to try and regain some space (UK bidders check out here, here and here if you are interested) but I'm just not very good at getting rid of things!

Anyway, lets put all that out of our minds and go to Julia's and go desk hopping!!  :)

p.s  This is my 99th post!  Should I celebrate the 100th?  What do you think?


  1. Ah, piles that need sorting, that sounds familiar. If you want to celebrate, you should celebrate, that's what I say!

  2. Well Done Laura for doing a drawer at least. I need a bigger room too, but really I need to stop collecting for a while. Enjoy your day. Hugs Rita 88 xx

  3. Lovely tidy drawer - makes me want to just dig in and start exploring!
    I'm planning to celebrate my 100th post (prob. next week) with a giveaway, I believe 100 posts is quite an achievement. I don't know about you but I didn't think I'd keep up the blogging this long! You have a great blog - I say celebrate!! XX

  4. Adore your mini album, would love to see inside too. BJ#35

  5. That is so weird, I have just written post 100 too! You album is lovely. Thanks for visiting me, jenx

  6. Yes you should shout about your 100th posting it is something to be proud of Laura.
    Tidy house - no I've invaded evey room with my stuff even the loo haha

  7. How spooky is that, my next one is 100 too......yes you should celebrate it! Well done. Your album is beautiful and I love your tidy drawer - great pencils in there. Crafty hugs, Anne x #32

  8. You should absolutely celebrate 100 - that's amazing!! And I think you should celebrate your tidy drawer too. Heck, let's celebrate being in WOYWW too :D
    Love the look of your beads but I can't fit anymore into my storage and I'm not buying more!!
    Hugs, LLJ #71 xx

  9. Hi Laura, your complete project is beautiful, and so is your organised draw. I love to organise and love the look of it. You will get there with the rest of your stuff. Like you I have a very hard time parting with anything, but I have been doing a few purges so I can fit more of what I really like in. Thanks for the warm welcome on my blog and yes, I'm very lucky to have a whole desk with four workstations to myself. Cheers FiLoMa #115

  10. Well one drawer is better than none and it does look lovely... not for long i bet... hopefully
    thanks for sharing

  11. Hi Laura I suffer with the same problem...nothing stays tidy for long...too much stuff or too small a room! That is the question, LOL. Love your album...have fun with it. Thanks for popping by my place and happy crafting!
    Hugs Erika.

  12. Your album looks great -- there is so much interesting detail on the cover. It looks to be about tag sized? I love making tags, so that would be a fun size to try sometime. Good job on the drawer organizing. It seems like you always find something you'd forgotten you had. . . and my theory about stuff that temporarily lives on the table is that you might decide to make something else with it before you put it away -- clutter as inspiration! :-) Happy WOYWW and thanks for visiting my blog. ~ Laura #122

  13. That's a great mini tag album you've started. That is how I attack minis-basics first, then photos, then the fun stuff and finally the writing. Thanks for visiting my blog today :)

  14. Don't wish for a bigger room, you will just fill that up too (he he), happened to me. You should celebrate your 100th post, that is really something. I'm still a fair way off but I plan to do a giveaway of some sort. Love your little album, the colours are fab.
    Have a great week.

  15. Your little album looks fantastic.
    I think you should celebrate your 100th's brilliant and such fun!
    I like things to be tidy too...I can then concentrate on the art and not the mess.
    Have a wonderful weekend whatever you have planned ~ enjoy!
    Happy WOYWW Neesie #29

  16. Super album and definitely celebrate your 100th! Take care Zo xx 118

  17. your album is looking good and so is your tidy job. The mess on your desk looks like a great load of stash to me!
    Why not celebrate 100 posts... it's a milestone and an achievement. Congratulations!

  18. The album is looking great and the organised drawer is a thing of beauty.
    I don't think any crafter is good at getting rid of things, but we are really good at finding fantastic things! LOL
    Happy very belated WOYWW!

  19. I think your tidy drawer is wonderful but I feel the same way when I tidy - won't last long. Sometimes doesn't even last a day. sigh.

    Sorry so late, busy week with school starting here.

  20. Fantastic album cover! Love it.

    A neat drawer is very nice, but not practical. :)

  21. So is that draw still tidy? :)

    Just added your lovely blog to the blogs I follow. You very kindly sent me some beautiful things for Kirsty's RAK list, so I got your blog address off your envelope.

    Looking forward to popping in and seeing what you are up to.

    1. It is still tidy Sue, but... that's because I have been staying elsewhere while some noisy building work was being completed. Now I'm back I give it 2 days - maximum!

  22. Laura, your stuff all looks very organised and tidy! I do love that little album, too.

    Thanks for your lovely comment - so glad you like my tiger. Have you seen my subsequent post with the completed page?

    Happy belated WOYWW,
    Shoshi #2

  23. Laura your album looks gorgeous and I am sure packed full of gorgeous stuff! Love the tidy drawers, you can come do mine anytime lol.

  24. Yes, you should do a 100th (and 101th...1001th) post! We want to see more of you work! And I am wondering how you created the background to this album cover... looks super interesting.
