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!

Who turned out the lights? 

My craft room is a gloomy dark place this morning, even with the blind fully up. Good job I have an Ottlite!

Anyway desk, I'm back to showing the whole thing again, well I did have to hide something I've been colouring, you'll have to come back week Fri to see it! Look out for the full pen storage, yes every pen has a proper slot now as I've bought some more trays - 

So full pen storage, radio still there along with the pile of stamps, really do need to sort them. There an empty dog food box I'm planning on covering and using for storage.

Window side in full on colouring mode.

Usual things that are on my desk, glues and scissors; Ebosser and Ottlite; phone and pens.

Okay so that's me. Pop over to Julia's Stamping Ground to see everyone else's desks and join in!

I'm off out in this weather (lashing down with rain!) for a haircut later. Oh joys. But it'll be nice to get my hair done even if the style doesn't last when I step out of the hairdresser's door! 
See you all laters and thanks for all the visits and comments lately. They really do help me and keep me going when I'm struggling big time.
Take care Zo xx

It really is dark this morning....:-( I suppose we've had such a fab summer, autumn has come as a bit of a shock! Have fun at hairdressers...I love going too. If I won the lottery, I'd go every week, just to have the pleasure of the head massage!!
Hugs, LLJ 3 xx

Happy WOYWW and hope you survive your trip to the hairdressers. I really need to go and get my hair cut. Can't remember the last time I went! Typically, the weather has calmed down since I battled outside with the animals. Ali x #96

Seeing your desk makes me want to color SO badly! I love coloring especially on rainy days with a nice cup of tea and some quite music! Happy WOYWW and thanks for the visit!

You are always so organized!! I love that!!
I hope your hair style stays perfect! Maybe it will stop raining just for you!!

lisa said...

It's pouring here too, not sure I like having the lights on all day!!! Hope you managed to keep your lovely new hairdo dry.
Love all the pens in their new home, I'm in desperate need of some new pen storage but lovely stamps and things keep catching my eye instead!!

I have CopicLust! I really need to get some more Copics. Your hair is looking good - I spied it on Twitter!
I am with Lisa on sorting storage - magpie syndrome!

Oh dear, it is a cold dreary wet day in your section of the planet? Days like that are meant to stay indoors and color (with the Ottlight). Venture out if you must but don't say we didn't warn you. I hope your 'do comes out looking good.

Helen said...

hope you didn't get too wet after the hairdressers... that's one joy of having mine come to me!! Great desk as always, you're obviously in mid DT colouring flow!! Have a great week. Helen 13

Ria Gall said...

your pens are looking good in their storage unit I was going to get that system for my spectrum noirs but I decided on a set of four see through draws for mine and it is working for me.
Good luck with the hair cut I am sure it will look better the next day when you get up and don't have to go out in the rain
Happy WOYWW have an enjoyable week hugs Ria #22
