WOYWW160 the right way up

Hi WOYWW ers and everyone else
If you visited last week you will have noticed the Learning Tower was leaning slightly more than usual.

The handyman has fixed the Tower,  I hope the Italians don't mind!!!!

Now it is straight again hee hee!
Well, I was blogging on my phone and believe me, it was not easy (for me anyway)  turning the picture  was beyond my adilities and hey, I was on holiday.

Sorry if I didn't visit you back last weeek, it was very slow on the phone and there was soooo much to do (mostly, walk, wine and ice cream!!).
Visit Queen of the work desks julia at  stamping-ground. to see what I am talking about.

Anyway here is my desk for this week. . . yesterday when Erin my GD was having her afternoon nap.

I have finally started the tiara for D2's wedding, I have drawn a couple of designs and I am playing with wire and pearls, it is very much in the early stages.

At the back are some new plastic labels for all the boxes on my shelves, I found them in Ikea the other day. The slide inside the box but hang down low enough so you can see the writing and don't spoil the box.
I do like to be organised and know where everything is.
I have only labelled a couple of boxes on the lower shelves. . .  I even found an empty drawer.. OOOO I have room for more stash!!!

Finally here are a couple more ATC's from the swap the other week, a big thanks to everyone they were all fab.
These  were from Princess Judy in Tuscon and Bridget Larsen in Australia.

I will try harder this week with my visits  so please leave a comment and your Mr linky no. so I can find you quickly.

  8. Can't wait to see more of the tiara. Loving your organisation. After sorting my craft room, I have 2 empty boxes - but only small ones. I keep meaning to label everything (have one of those Brother labelling machines - cheap on Create & Craft), but don't get round to it. Ali x #70

  9. Hope you show us the finished tiara. Happy crafting Jill #73

  10. I love your storage and the labels!! It really works for me...why waste time searching for stuff?? I used to be a demon with the Dynotape when I was younger...blimey, how OCD am I sounding??
    Oooh, a tiara, that sounds gorgeous - you'll have to give us a peek!
    Hugs, LLJ #3 xx

  16. Super pictures and your desk and storage is amazing. Bet the tiara will be beautiful. Take care, enjoy this week's snooping extravaganza! Zo xx 74

  17. ...and they say the camera doesn't lie. Clever to straighten the tower for them Janet must have saved them a mint.
    Your tiara will be perfect, can't wait to see it finished.

  18. Oh how clever are you to make a tiara. Love your labels. Sandy :) #51

  19. Can't wait to see your tiara!! Bet it will be fabulous. Sian - One and Only design WOYWW 100

  20. Hi Janet I love Ikea storage solutions - I will have to look out for the labels. I wish they would bring the wooden sets of drawers back! I look forward to seeing the tiara. What a lovely project to be embarking on. WOYWW Hugs from Helen 89

  21. Great desk, but I really envy you all those shelves and boxes. They look amazing and I bet they hold an incredible stash.

    cheers, rachel #68

  22. love the ATC cards. Lucky GD having you make her tiara you are one busy girl have a great day!

  23. How is Rosie doing? She is so little, I hope she is eating OK. Happy drawer labeling, here's to finding another empty drawer!! waving the #49 from the hills of North Carolina :)

  24. Whoa! I love the wide view of your desk with all your boxes and drawers. You'll be happy to have them all labeled. I know that helps me a lot. Thanks for helping the leaning tower get back on its feet again. I figured what happened. If I take a sideways photo and load it on my work computer, it loads sideways even if I tell it to rotate and save. Go figure!!!!! I want to come play at your desk!

  25. Now that is quite a lot of boxes that need labels! I like the idea that they don't damage the box. Happy WOYWW Bella 145

  26. Hi there!!

  29. Ooooooopss I am no. 150 Anne x

  30. Hi Janet,

    Look at that organization! I notice one of you boxes says playing cards - I found some round playing cards at the local thrift store. I'm still looking for scrabble tiles and just can't seem to find any. Oh bother.

    Thanks for visiting me already. Mr. Mojo is lurking around the corner, I can feel it!!

    Kay #36

  35. Thanks for your visit yesterday Janet. Unfortunately Mr Sandeman got me so I had to go to bed! Look at all your storage! Wow! and Labelled too!!
    As for Christmas stuff it is because I take part in Rudolph Day - on 25th of every month we make cards or decorations! Daft but a great way of building up cards etc before the panic in November! Have you had a summer then? Hee Hee.

    Love the look of your room - all those boxes full of things I guess - I love boxes and the sounds of those plastic labels really appeals to me. Must make a trip to Ikea soon - which department are they in?
    Thanks for sharing and for the smile with the Tower.
    Hugs, Neet #20 xx
