Happy WOYWW 208

Sorry I have been out of the loop recently. I promise to try to be a better blogger and get back to it.
Lots going on, all too boring to detail here, but not much of it crafty related.
I have a new unit that a friend was no longer needing. It's one of the Ikea Expedit ones. It's been in my wish list for ages ;-)
Therefore my desk pic is of my unit. It will no doubt be rearranged a couple of times till I am happy with it.
Happy anniversary WOYWW'ers.
If you are not sure what WOYWW is go see Julia and join in the birthday party.

  9. It’s amazing that the internet can bring together so many likeminded people and I’m grateful that WOYWW has also brought along so many new friends, thanks to Julia.

    I wish I had friends who no longer wanted their IKIA unit, I would love one myself. Mind you I need to redecorate the room first. Love the way you’re arranged your bits on it and especially the Black and White boxes.

    Enjoy your Wednesday snooping on this very special Day
    Happy Crafting!

  11. Hi Alison,
    Thanks for the visit. I didn't get the e-mail (yet) did you send it to
    lmogle1950@yahoo.com, I keep changing it on my profile and keeps putting the old one back :( Would love to trade with you.

  14. I love those units...so practical. Sadly I can't fit one in my room because of the sheer number of bookcases and books! Thanks for sharing. Have a very happy 4th WOYWW birthday. Caro x (#67)

  15. Hi Alison, it's lovely to see you a again, I've missed you. I have unit envy, I'd love this but my room is just not big enough. DH had one for his office at work and has just taken it too his new office, I tried desperately to find room for it but no luck.
    Happy WOYWW

  17. Has your friend got anymore she doesn't want. How fab is that. Francesca #31

  18. I'm going to guess that your friend isn't a crafter! If she is, she'll kick herself when she sees how fab your stash looks on that unit! How kind of her.

    To view some desks and see what I can spy,

  22. Fab unit! it's great getting hold of something you've wanted for a while, a bit like me with the parcel! its actually the Tim Holtz Word play Die.It's been out of stock for a while, and the great thing is it works with my cuttlebug using the long cutting pads. Enjoy organising your space, happy 'Anniversary' toni x
