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, 9 July 2014


It's Wednesday and that means you need to be popping over to Julia's Stamping ground to find out about the desk dashing that most of us aspire to do weekly.

Right I'm very excited because my beautiful writing bureau is in my craft room and I am using it. I love it. Here's the photos of my room with it in now - 

So here it is in-situ.

I stood behind the door to take this. The desk that had the laptop on now has the printer on it. The laptop sits on the bureau when in use but I shut it down and put it on the printer so that I can shut the bureau each night or when I want to write or do something other than use puter!

My pen desk - yes that tower of pen storage is higher. I bought some new colours and wanted to keep the storage in colour sections.

Window side empty-ish! There are Christmas related toppers in the window. I plan on making up the odd card in between doing stuff.

So that's me - I'm going to try to get to more of you than I have of late. I have a plan! Lol Right coffee time. See you soon. Oh by the way I see I'm nearly at 200 followers. I will be doing a giveaway once I hit 200 so would love you to follow me if you don't already. (Sorry for the self promoting!)

Take care Zo xx

The writing desk/bureau looks fab. We had one in the hall when I was growing up, but I don't think anyone ever sat at it to write! Good to see yours will got lots of use. Enjoy the rest of your week Zoe xx

A bit of self promotion is in order Zoe, if you ask me, you're way too modest! Bureau looks right at home I must say..and you pen storage is looking like an artist display!

Hettie said...

Gosh you have some pens there. I am sadly lacking in Copics but the ones I have I love and use. I can usually manage by just deepening the colour.
Your desk looks good.

The desk is just perfect for that space! Don't you love finding that piece that you've been looking for and just having it work!
Thanks for visiting!

Hey Zoe

hope you are well love. I'm liking the bureau - how very proper it all is - and agree how it looks so much better than a regular desk - I suppose it gives you more room to breath when it's all closed up too?!

Thanks for your visit and self promoting on your own blog isn't bad at all - it's your privilage! Promoting yourself on other blogs isn't tasteful - unless they do it for you lol!!! Its only blogging at the end of the day isn't it - promote away!!! <3

Happy Wednesday. Big hugs
Paula x x x

Hi Zoe, that bureau is gorgeous- nothing as beautiful as 'proper' wooden furniture, is there? And working on the dreaded 'C' cards already, just thinking about it gives me the shivers, lol. Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz xx #19

LOVE that writing bureau, it has fitted into your room so well. I love the mix of old and new in there :-)
And way to go with the sewing...yay!! Really proud if you. Let's face it, I hadn't sewn before three years ago and if I can do it, you can!!!
Hugs, LLJ 21 xx

I thought that tower of markers looked taller! I love the bureau in its new home. It is a gorgeous piece of furniture and so useful too! The rest of your crafty area is looking good too, plenty of room to play and some things to play with.

Your bureau is gorgeous, Zoe and fits in your room perfectly. It looks like you can just turn round from your craft desk to your laptop. I wish I had such an organised crafty space.
Thanks for visiting already. We are keeping up with the tdf now its gone back to France and are learning all the ins and outs, never having watched it before, lol.

Oh your new desk looks perfect where it is and to use if for your puter is brilliant, they are suited for each other. Love that tower of pens I thought it had grown and please to see you admitted it, you see you can't hide anything from us spying desker's. Have a great crafting week.
