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!

Wednesday, 8 January 2014


Good afternoon, I'm finally here. I confess to sleeping all morning and then sorting chores etc but I have now taken photos. 

As always pop over to the amazing Stamping Ground - home of WOYWW for all the details to join us desk dashers. I see there is to be another crop, I will certainly try my best to get there again as I have loved every one so far!! I'm not far away so if anyone wants to come but needs to stay over I'm sure I can persuade Keagan to give up his room for the weekend!! 

Okay desk - 

Right side.

Window side. 

Sharing this angle to show off my gorgeous banner my fab friend Stephanie-Emma made me.

And as I type I have this little fella on my lap. Yep Baxter wants to join in this week!

All in all, my craft room is a mess. Needs major sorting so I plan on doing that this year. I'm going to get rid of stuff. Right that's me. Keagan will be home soon. 
Happy New Year, to those I've not 'spoken' to already!!
Take care Zo xx

Hi Zoe, yes, I'm looking forward to the crop again. last years was ace. I keep sorting my space, and trying to weed out what I know I won't use- work in progress, lol. Have a great week, Hugs Shaz #93xx

I spy quite a pile of junk (but good junk I know) under your table there. It is indeed time for a good sorting but I suspect that the getting rid of stuff not so much. I mean I get it.... you find it after you forgot you had it and it's like Christmas all over again!

Looks like some serious colouring has been going on there, Zoe. Love Baxter, he's adorable. I'm loving my PL so far. I take so many photos so it's great to actually look at them all again. I also intend to record my weeks although not sure I'll do a page per week, may be a few at a time, not decided yet!
Thanks for visiting earlier.

Hi Zo, thanks for stopping by - hope you are feeling a bit better than when we last 'spoke'. So tidy as usual, can't really believe you need to have a sort out!! I truly think I may have maxed out my craft room, there really is no more space!! Really hope you can make the crop - it's in my diary!! Happy WOYWW Cindy #46

Angie said...

Haha, that is NOT a mess by any means! There is creativity, there is fun, there is even fur but not a bit of mess do I see! Thanks for the pop by!

I wish I could do the crop but $1200 air fare and then another $1000 for can do. Maybe if I start saving now I could make it next year. Love the craft room! Thanks for Sharing....Vickie #104

Gita said...

All your markers out and I see the little piece fussy cut out. She looks lovely and a very nice coloring job. Brigita #80

Lisa-Jane said...

LOL! Everyone seems to be on a mission to sort their rooms out this week - I wonder how many will look the same next visit?! ;-) Happy New Year! #39

Happy Belated WOYWW. Looks like a busy and colourful desk. I am going through a stage of waking even earlier than usual, but that does mean I have tidied my craft room and selling lots of stash. Ali x. #15

Alison Wade said...

Happy Belated WOYWW. How annoying - my first comment disappeared! Cannot remember what I said, but something about how lovely and colourful your desk is. Love your furry assistant. Ali x. #15

I'm jealous of all the markers you have...what a great space and love that storage unit. I find it extremely relaxing to sit and colour. Hope you have a great week and happy crafting.

That does not look like a mess to me. When my room looks like that, I have just spent a day cleaning!
I wish I could come for the crop, now only if we could find a sponsor for the plane ticket.
Happy belated WOYWW!

KatzElbows said...

I guessing person's neat and tidy is another one's mess, but that is not a mess, not even close! Hopefully I'll see you at the crop this year. I better start making ATCs.

Thank you for stopping by.
Love Rachel #8

Your room doesn't look very messy, Zo, but a crafter knows when it is time for a good sort out. I'm sorry that the handsome Baxter was camera shy today! What a comfort and delight he is for you!! Happy Belated WOYWW and thank you for popping by to visit me! Enjoy the rest of the week! Hugs, Darnell #12

Diane said...

Wonderful craft room, I bet lots of creative projects will be coming out of there.
