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, 11 June 2014


Morning! Well I am here desk dashers rather early for a change, I've not slept well so thought I'd just get up and on with the day. You need to dap over to the Desk-Dashing-Delights that is The Stamping Ground to join in or to just see what on earth I'm going on about.

Now during this no sleep thing I had another idea for sorting my craft room. I've been tackling it this last week a shelf at a time. Using boxes from various foods to cover to become storage. So this idea sprang and I rushed into my craft room to get it sorted then realised it wouldn't quite work as the shelf I'm working on is smaller than the previous one. No matter though I've come up with a plan!

I stood back a bit for this one so you can see it's not all as tidy as you think!

So pile of bags and card blanks and various papers.

Envelopes and boxes.

You guessed it, those boxes will be cut down to fit said shelf and then covered so they are pretty cos it's just needs to be that way and then my bags/envelopes/papers will sit neatly and not fall everywhere when I try to pull one out. Hopefully!

So I'm going to go back to bed for a bit then I'll pop round and see some of you later on. Have the coffee brewing cos I think I'll need it today!
Take care Zo xx

I always love seeing other people's storage ideas. The fact that yours is free/cheap makes it even better! Coffee always available here. Hope you're feeling a bit better rested when you get up the second time. I don't think this weather is helping much.

Hi Zo,

Clever Idea you have there, I can see the plan, it will work a treat nothing like a bit of sorting out and organizing, I think we all have to do it every now and again.

hope you have a good rest, heaps of coffee and craft to your hearts content.

Hugs Eliza &Yoda

Storage is Sooo important and you seem to have a lot of stuff stored in your bin lol. Have fun with the box making.
Carrying on with WOYWW ready for Julia's return

Way to put your sleeplessness to good use. I too am ever looking for better organizing. Love all your carefully color sorted markers too. Sounds like the boxes will be perfect for your stacks. Thanks for popping by with encouragement on my 'receipt' filing. I am about 3 weeks in. I only work on it when I have a bit of time. It was about 20 or so years to sort through. Keep smiling and creating.

I always get distracted by wonderful markers stored so neatly! I would love to have that! Happy WOYWW even without a linky!
