WOYWW with Julia...

 Welcome to my blog. Today in my crafty room and on my desk...

I got this carousel in a charity shop for 99p and altered it so that I could use it with ink pads. It saves a lot of space!


The boxes with numbers are actually storage for mulbery paper flowers and roses. The numbers are the sizes of all the flowers I have. I use loads of them on my cards, frames and on exploding boxes.

If you're not familiar with what an exploding box is, visit my Etsy shop to have a look. One is here, and here, and here

I've spread all over the double bed as the desk is too small. This is a guest bedroom so don't have to clear the bed very often. 


Loads of stuff waiting to be put away in storage boxes.


I went to Bury St.Edmunds for a Papercraft Show with my crafty friend Kim and I spent loads of money on cutting dies, white 280gsm A4 card and stamps (photo below).


My embossing folder storage. I can see what designs I have at a glance.  


And... something different. I picked up my 4 week supply of painkillers from my local pharmacy today. I poison myself with all this only to take the edge off my pain. It doesn't really help any more but have no choice if I want to function at all. If you want to know why, click here.


Thank you for reading and happy WOYWW! :)

Your boxes are really pretty and I can see why you need so many flowers. I love your new ink pad storage a great idea.
