WOYWW #176: Somebody Else!

It's really still Wednesday, I promise. I must be quick, it's off to dinner with me.

Here's the table this evening; I've just finished making a bookmark. A... birthday celebration bookmark? I dunno, I wanted to use those colors and the birthday stamps seemed to go with them.

I mentioned my storage on Saturday. My accumulation of papercrafting stuff is new and recent, and my stash is small. I keep it in these lovely stacking bins, obsessively labeled with blue painter's tape. Love that stuff.

What's that on my worktable? SOMEONE ELSE! My boyfriend fixed our friend's sewing machine (actually it just needed the right size bobbin; he used his internet research skills rather than his mechanical repair skills), and printed off a copy of the manual since she didn't have one. "I have several sets of sewing-y stamps!" said I, and stoutly refused to do anything with them myself. He gave in to the inevitable and stamped a bit on the back cover, hurrah! COME TO THE INKY SIDE.


  1. Haha! Just be careful...I've seen on other blogs where men got so involved in the inks they practically took over the craft room! lol I love your storage containers. And your labelling! Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment. :) Stay tuned and I'm sure to have a card or two soon using the new stamp-a-ma-jiggy thingy from Inkadinkadoo up on the blog soon. :)

  3. Uh OH, don't create a monster! It'll be like the closet....though your side is still would be better if it were all yours....haha!

    Love the storage....I'm a big fan of plastic,, stackable and easy to see inside :)

  4. Yes venture into the sharing thing with care! LOL I've enjoyed my visit - thanks for stopping by my blog last night.

  5. I love your sorted and organised storage. Love that you have unused stash for any occasion already. I love that you share. But most, I love that he actually conceded! It must be love!!

  6. thanks for stopping by and saying hello. I love your storage, it is so pristine and tidy. Now you can sit back and watch your stash grow to overwhelming proportions. A very clever boyfriend. Enjoy your week.

  7. Good for you, and for him. And if he gets the bug, make him buy his own stash and then you can both share!

    Thank you so much for stopping by. I did think my wordy art might be unique, but it's good to hear it from someone else.

    Happy WOYWW.
    cheers, rachel #64

  8. Looks like a lot of stash to me! I wish my stuff was labeled. No wait, it would need to be organized for that, huh? ;D The comment you left for me has lead me to believe that I love your shopping math!

  9. Love how organised you are thats my sort of crafting - and also love the idea of men in black carrying my pen case Hmmmm off to day dream - have a great week

  10. I love how you are so organized and everything is labeled!

    Happy WOYWW (on Thursday!)

  11. I love your organization!! That is awesome!!
    And what a nice boyfriend! To research and fix the sewing machine!!

  12. You'd better watch out, you'll get him hooked on your inks and they'll be lost to you forever.
    I love all your beautifully organised storage.
    Happy WOYWW

  13. Nice storage area. The challenge is to keep it thus... If you can then it's a good time saving investment. I really like your bookmarks. I'm really inspired to make some with quotations on them. Mostly I don't like lots of words on cards but reflective thoughts on bookmarks seem to go with reading. You're an inspiration.
    Thanks for visiting me, too.
    Miles of smiles,

  14. I am a bit late visiting this week. I am trying to visit a few new desks each week. You look like a busy crafter! x Jo #86
