WOYWW - 19/05/10

I have been hankering for ages after a metal drawer unit my mum has had laying unused at her house and finally she allowed me to whisk it home and fill it with all my bits and bobs! I love it, it holds so much.

I also got straight to work with my label maker so I know what's in each drawer. Here is a peek at my two favourite drawers right now, my inks and my flowers.
Mmmm, I just keep opening the drawers to look at them!

So, on to WOYWDW (Which in my case should be WOYWDT as I had to clear it all away to start a new project tonight) This is a photo of the calm before the storm!


Then this is what it looked like during....
You can see that I managed to pick up a second set of Magpie storage drawers from Home Bargains so I can now use one for promarkers and the others for my nesting tins. I am using a pad of MME glittered paper for my project this week, along with my beloved corner chomper and little bags of bargain flat back pearls.

And this is the result. A set of little thank you cards for my mum to give to her students at the end of their year. I love the pretty mint green against the pink and I love paisley so I am sold! Hope you have all had a great week and I am looking forward to blog hopping to see all the other workspaces out there!

  1. Oh I used a set of drawers like that for many happy years..although I have to admit they didn't look much like yours on opening! Even mid-flow you are very tidy and organised; what a tranquil sorta space it adds up to. Shows in your lovely work actually.
