Welcome Everyone

The wonderful world of Zoe is what I hope to share with you all here on my blog. Life isn't always easy, but then that's the case whoever you are. But no matter what each day brings I always try to start and end it with a smile - to look back and know I controlled my day, the day didn't control me!

WOYWW 164 - did you miss me?!

Hello! Did you miss me? Really? Nah I don't expect so!

It feels ages ago when I last joined in, yet it was only the other week. You'll be pleased to know the new medication is actually helping some what, so I am having spells where I am feeling better. Yay for that!

Ok the desk, hmmm can't show you that cos it's got a DT project on it that's drying and I can't share it yet so I thought I'd show you all my shelves. I haven't shared them with you in a while and things have changed a lot.

You'll notice the blind is down, well that is to protect my pens and things from being scorched in the glorious sunshine that is streaming in. Ok very top you'll see 2 lovely heart hooks that have my Some Odd girl stamp hanging - I usually keep all my stamps on laminated sheets in folders but the packaging is so sweet I didn't want to throw it away so I decided to use them as a wall feature. I think Saturated Canary stamps will join them when I get my hands on some!

Top shelf is full of jars - full of buttons and wooden embellishments.

Then it's the Smash* Shelf, oh yeah I have quite a collection. The basket holds all my Smash* accessories and bit's and bobs I want to use in the books.

Then you get a glimpse of the desk and my Copic collection.

So there you go. That's mine, why not show us yours by popping over to Julia's and linking in with the world wide desk snoop/hop/nose!

Take care Zo xx

Lovely to see you again, Zoe and I'm glad you are feeling better.
I'm very envious of all that sunshine you have streaming in. None here in Yorkshire!!

Happy WOYWW, and, yes, we have missed you! Glad your medication is having a positive effect. Tidy and pretty shelves. The colours of the Smash books are fab. I had a quick look to see what everyone was rabbiting on about - and definitely something I could see myself getting addicted to when I have some spare cash. Ali x #12

So wonderful to see that you have the glorious sunshine at last, hope it lasts for the Olympics. You have some really great goodies on those shelves and so many markers! Glad your new medication is helping you.
Have a great week.

Hi Zo glad to hear your medication is starting to work and that you are having some good days. I too have not blogged for a while. Your craft room looks very tidy, mine is such a mess as I have half my daughters life stored in it at the moment. Love Alison xxx

Redanne said...

You are so tidy Zo, I do wish I could be so organised and tidy! I know what you mean about the packaging being lovely, I have a stamp which is a full 12" high, I would never ink it, it is up on my wall and I love it. Glad to hear your meds are giving you some good days. Happy WoYww, Anne x #21

Everything's so neat and tidy! Your button collection is still growing but you can hardly see it now with all you other lovely things!
I haven't taken part in WOYWW for a while because I wasn't able to visit anyone or leave comments so I thought it wasn't fair but I'm slowly getting back to blogging and will hopefully be back to WOYWW soon.


Jingle said...

You have some great organization ideas here!

Red Kitty said...

I love that collection of copics. I used to have mine beside me like that, but I decided they had to move under the desk, away from the harsh sunlight that floods in here in the sfternoons.
The bright 'Smash' folders would cheer up any room. It all looks like a lovely place to work. Kate #52

Princess Judy Palmer said...

Thanks for the shot of your shelves. They are looking good, nicely organized and fun things within reach. You sure do have a lot of wooden embellishments! I just bought a little packet of them myself to try out. I see the appeal! Happy playing!

Darnell J Knauss said...

That was a great tour of the other parts of your fab work space! So glad you are having a "good spell," rather than the other way round. Enjoy the sunshine and thanks for coming by to visit me earlier!
