So it's that time again for WOYWW so here is my space this week
I'm working on Christmas again but that happens all the time in my space I haven't stuck down anything yet on the one I'm working on just not sure if I can adding more papers or something.

So Crafty Storage asked to see our Happy Space  I like to have every thing in reaching distance or it will just go to unused till I move it closer.
The boxes hide my messes inside I do want a more uniformed look but that will take some time
seeing I have to figure out what I need to create to keep it all neat and tidy and not get too over full of stuff in my way :)
Here's a little pull back of my space so you can see it all 
My marker collection to the right along with a bunch of cards I just finished. Two tea tins to be covered with some papers and everything else is in arm reach.
Thanks for peeking at my space I"ll be around to visit as many as I can :)

It's that time again to show off our spaces this week at WOYWW. I've been working on more Christmas cards to get my total up there I'm up to 70 so far 10 of them are going off to a Caring Hearts card drive and they are just waiting to be signed and popped into the post which I plan on doing shortly. So I've been using non-traditional papers for Christmas Cards just to try and burn through my stash of papers. There are some paint chips that we where going to thinking of painting our pantry but it ended up being a deeper heritage colour choice instead so I plan on cutting these up with some dies to have some bold bright colour die cuts. Made a couple fancy felt owl bookmarks up there on my shelf great use of scraps and that's about it at the moment. Colouring more images for DT and myself the tall snowman will be in Limited Runs shortly he had to pass the colouring up test to see if I missed anything. Just have to create some more images to go with him. Thats about all I'm up to time to do some desk surfing I've managed to follow a lot of people who play on WOYWW so I can pop in ahead of the post time :) 
Here are the bookmarks up close using up Odds and Ends that I haven't used or have had for along time.

WOYWW +Winner

So Here is my Desk ..... VERY EMPTY indeed. I finished the base with the DH laughing at me the whole time as I put it together 1st attempt I should have used a square the legs where so tilted. 2nd time around much better and it's now straight but he still enjoyed me putting it together lol but I'm very happy with it. Now I just want to change out the top and the shelf then it will be a totally new looking desk with some really kewl looking.
I think I'll still need something to protect it once done. 
So here's a close up the shell I've been putting my loose stamps in Not sure what type it is
but it's beautiful. Thanks Judys DH for letting me know it's a Nacre Shell :)

It's that time in the week to share our spaces and here's mine you can check out Julia's for everyone else's space and see what is going on !!
Here's my space this week and there on the desk is one of the candies to be mailed off this week to lucky Sandy Leigh Send me your snail mail @ elusionary60 at hotmail.com and I'll pop one of the little RAK'S in the Post to and I also have a 2nd one to go to someone this week too. Sorry I didn't get around last week to all that dropped by I'll be popping in this week for sure. I have just been making a few C&S Christmas cards for a card drive.
I got this lovely shell as a gift and am using it for as a stamp catcher just have to make sure they are clean before I put them in the shell it's really pretty. So my space this week is me just going along creating a few "C" cards and as you can see it's pretty tidy space. I like little distractions or I'll get nothing created. The card I was working on last week is finally done funny how long it took me to add in a few flowers I so struggle using them up lol.
I'll steal a little time this week here and there to get creative or at least colour up a bunch of images and then use them up for making quicker cards
I still have some Halloween Stash for Sale and I'll be posting some Christmas goodies for sale 
shortly too.

Thanks for popping in

I started today working this card and was looking through my scraps and papers and realized I that wasn't sure how many flowers I wanted so I started looking through my stash and the next thing I know I'm collecting some pink papers and buttons, flowers and extras for a little happy pink candy.
that I plan on having for October just leave a little comment to win one of them :)
So this is what I started 

 this is what I ended up with moved my inks over and tidied up now this is what my space looks like now after playing around and STILL the card isn't done and still looks like this lol so eventually I'll get it the way I want 
So Check out everyone else's space at Julia's and Happy Wed :) \
I still have stash for here and on Ebay
Hugs Nikki
