It's tidy!!

Apart from the containers awaiting pretty stash to be laid out in them ready for the next project.  To my right...

Well yes, there is still quite a lot of stuff there.  Much less than there once was though, and that my friends is progress!

To my left...

Kammy the Silhouette who will be working hard this afternoon.  I've tried my hand at designing a few cut files.  Of course I have no idea about the computery side of things so whether they will work is yet to be seen.

Thanks for popping by, leave me a comment and I'll be sure to check out your desk too!


  1. What an orderlydesk - ribbons on sticks- threads on a wheelie thing and varying sizes of scissors in a row. I'm afraid I'm more of a slut when it comes to my stash which means it takes twice as long to find things. Have a productive week Jackie #14

  2. Hi Laura, WOW! you do have a nice tidy desk.

    Will be interested to see what you create with your Silhouette.

    Hope you've had a good day. Sue

  3. Hi Laura. What a lovely tidy desk and I do have to say I really love your thread holder.

  4. Nothing like a profound cleanup! Good luck with your computer cuts, computers are supposed to be logical, and but often seem unpredictable to me :) happy woyww, thanks for popping by!

  5. How lovely your desk looks, Laura - so tidy and I do like your little containers and how cute is your thread organiser! Hope you have had a successful afternoon with Kammy :) Have a great week. Elizabeth x #53

  6. Well, I for one am very impressed that you're even attempting the computery thing!! That's why I stick to low tech things like fabric and much easier to get my simple brain around :-D

DMIO: Teach Me Something

A few weeks back I made a dream catcher.  A few readers asked if I could show them how I made it, so, here is my attempt at a tutorial! First up weaving the web. 1. You'll need a hoop and some ribbon/thread/yarn on a bobbin. 2. Attach the ribbon securely to your hoop. 3. Take your ribbon over the top of the hoop... 4. and up through the loop you've just made with the ribbon... 5. so you have a cross over. 6. Continue steps 3-5 until you reach the knot. 7. Now instead of going over the hoop you will crossover the ribbon 8. and through the loop you've just made to give a crossover. Continue on in this fashion until you get to the middle. You need to leave a hole in the middle as this is where the good dreams get through!  They then run down the tassels/feathers/any other hanging decoration and on to the owner.  It should look something like this.  You'll need to play around with your tension until you get a firm web. Now for the tassels - I like to

A Poe Quote

So I've been trying out art journalling for a while but had nothing that I wanted to share, until now. I was inspired by The Bears Challenge and picked this quote to base my page on. "If you wish to forget anything on the spot, make a note that this thing is to be remembered" I got some paints out, some spray mists too.  I used my fan brush, my fingers and a cotton rag.  I got messy, satisfyingly messy :) The letters are some old letraset vinyls that were my Aunt's.  When we cleared my Grandparents house I couldn't stand the art goodies to go to waste.  I saved them because I knew one day I would find a use for them.  They must be 40 years old but are still perfect.  (I sometimes look at things I get today and think they won't still be good in 5 years let alone 40!) I don't have the complete alphabet so there are some adaptations... c's became o's, E's became t's, w's became m's.  I magicked a k from a P!  Some
