Another week, another Wednesday, and the Christmas holidays are well and truly over and we're back into the routine of school runs and kiddy classes! *sigh* It all seemed to go so fast, didn't it? :)
Things haven't changed much here in the craft room.. it's still desperately in need of a tidy (what else is new?) and reorganise... but I did clear up the workspace area a bit... mainly cos I couldn't find my black Memento inkpad and suspected it was somewhere under the accumulated bumf! :lol:
I did actually get in my craft room earlier this evening and made two cards but sadly I can't share them here cos they're both DT cards! Ah well. You'll be seeing them soon enough on this blog. :D On the desk this early Wednesday morning you can see some of the bits and pieces I used in creating them.
I haven't been in the craft room a lot this week tbh. I usually spend my weekday evenings between the lounge and the craft room (conveniently right next door to each other), either watching TV (and often colouring digi stamps as I do) or crafting. However... my lounge currently looks like this:
Yup, we've got the decorators in! So all the furniture is pushed into the middle of the room and the TV etc is disconnected and moved elsewhere. By the end of tomorrow the walls should be a lovely pale gold colour.
All of which means that, for the moment, for tv watching purposes (or, more accurately, my Seasons 1-7 Criminal Minds DVD boxset which I am still ploughing my way through), I am banished to the playroom which is right at the other end of the house. So I am a lot less likely to flit between the tv and the crafting, as doing so involves a flight of stairs and moving the baby monitor and other necessities along with me. Tonight's the first night that I've managed to get any serious crafting done.
Ah well. The lounge should be finished over the next couple of days (and then I have the fun task of reconnecting the TV/Sky box/BluRay player/hard drive etc to the plethora of random cables!) and I can go back to my comfy evenings of tv and crafting.
I might even share a picture of the finished, redecorated lounge in next week's WOYWW post. :)
Thanks for stopping by - hope Wednesday treats you well! :D

Love the idea of your craft room next to the living room, best of both worlds there. Hope the decorators do a wonderful job.

The craft room next to the living room sounds great for dashing back and forth. Ours is shared with our bedroom which is handy for mid craft bear naps!

Looking forward to seeing the freshly painted sitting room, Ali. Thanks so much for visiting my workdesk and for your lovely comments about my cushions. Happy Wednesday. :o)

I so understand the plethora of cables! When Hubby put my PC desk in my new room, the amount of cables being disconnected in the old room made it look like the National Grid! And don't even mention the living room cabling!Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #73 xx

Loving that you have TWO monitors :) Me too, but the left one is rotated portrait so I can get just about ALL of UKS on it without scrolling LOL! While I will happily share my horrible messy desk, I think twice about sharing the cable spaghetti UNDER it :)

Best of luck with the changes and have a great WOYWW.

Oh no...all those cables and reconnecting! Yikes. I hate that....hopefully it won't prove too much of a hassle for you. Brigita #112

The desk has more space on it this week with some interesting goodies on it. I hope that the decorating goes well. Thanks for sharing. Caro #46

UGH. We decided to paint our living room (Aka Lounge) right after Halloween. In was a major undertaking, but I love it now. You will get through it.

I am new to WOYWW and friends with Sandee. Hope you have a chance to check out my blog and desk.

Hi Ali, wish my craft room was next to the living room, but it's upstairs and at the back of the house! Still, running up & down the stairs gives me a little exercise lol!

I colour in front of the tv too - otherwise I could end up shutting myself away all evening!

Happy woyww

How lucky you are to have both rooms next to each other. I have to go out the door around the corner and down the hall to get to the livingroom that is right on the other side of the wall LOL!! CAn't wait to see your DT cards

I can't wait to see the 'new' lounge. Sounds like it will be quite cozy. I hope you can share those cards soon, too. April #136

The decorating is such a tedious job, but so worth it when its done. I tend to clean only when I can't find something, so you are in good company. I hope you at least found the stamp pad.
Happy belated WOYWW!

We have a wifi system in the house, but that does not seem to cut down the amount of spaghetti around the computers and the TV system. I have to ask though, why have you got two screens on your desk? Have a good week getting back to normal. xx Maggie #32
