WOYWW + Little candy

Check out everyone's spaces at WOYWW 
Here is my space this week, I've been busy one of the girls I work with bought a couple sweaters and thought they looked nice when she bought them, but she was wrong so she gave them to me thinking I might like em well I didn't. I don't know who they would have looked good on so I re-purposed them into PURSES they have a faux suede lining inside and I just have to make straps for them both I'm so loving the green one.
I've also been trying to make my space a little more neater and organized so my stash isn't the 1st thing you see so it is still a work in progress. I'm hoping to find something vintage with drawers in it.
Close up of the purses the same type of sweater but slightly different sewing to each and different embellishment. I need to find some vintage big buttons so I can make some more. Finding them is going to take a while :)
Close up of the purses and my new cloud embossing folder on the left so much fun that will be.
To make my space more uniformed I've redone my little boxes all over to match together
 Made all new labels and they have little numbers stamped on them they hold all of my paper flowers and assorted embellishments inks and Washi tapes. My sister sent me a bunch of washi for my birthday and they will be used up I even made my 1st ever washi tape card I love the way it looks and it was so quick to make.
 This is my washi tape card with some ever so sweet butterfly embellishments from Carole they worked perfectly and she made them so colourful that all I had to do was attach them and make up the little tag thank you on it. Well let's thank someone who follows my blog inside is a surprise of my fave embellishments ... it's something I love and have to stop myself from getting more. Can you guess what I'm talking about??
Please follow along and  leave a little comment and your in also if you can post a link on your side bar that would be great but not a requirement.  I'll pick a winner next week on Wed. 
Thanks for popping in and I'll visit as many desks as I can
hugs Nikki

  4. I do like the new labels you have made for your boxes. The washi tape card is also lovely. What butterfly die is that? Can you ask Carole please? It looks stunning and just what I am after. #27

  6. Love the labels - I am a total sucker for a nice label of any kind on any thing. I have drawers of them from clothes. I'll never use them, but I still can't help but keep them. Nice to see practical ones LOL!

    Pretty card too - is that all washi tape? Cool patterns!

    Happy WOYWW!

  22. Nikki, this is so TIDY! Love the way you've covered all the storage to look uniform and neat. (I need you to come organize me!). That is a super idea to use the unloved sweaters to make these lovely purses. They certainly look wonderful, and the button embellishment on the first that I can see, is perfect with the look. Very talented & clever to come up with this idea! TFS &Hugs

  23. What a fabulous idea with the sweaters! You could make buttons exactly the way you want with polymer clay.
    Have a good week,
