WOYWW #364 {befor & after}

Happy Wednesday & Anniversary Ladies, These are tuesday after work shots...  I did not make ATC's but, you can find this weeks link up at Jan's blog here she is hosting while Julia is away. Thanks Jan!

 I have been letting things pile up left and right. and I hauled home this box of "stuff" from a yard sale two weeks ago that what I have taken out of the box so far was a very big stack of scrap sized hand made textured papers. That is what you see closest to you, I had been flipping through some of them to make a card last Friday evening. beyond that are just the rest of what had been pulled out and not put away.

I think this took the better part of a couple hours to do this. so, next time I go up it will be fun to make something rather than pushing things out of the way. It's not totally spotless I did leave out the stack of bingo cards and scooped up the pile of scrabble letters into a measure cup. ( I am vaguely thinking of making some kind of word tag things for the booth with them) (maybe) honestly I just hoard vintage game pieces for the most part but, I am trying to tell my self I have "enough" of them to let some go.
I did mention my yard is getting a lot of my free time lately yes? ( well, so is my camera again) I caved and upgraded my K7 base for a K3 ( the 3 is discontinued and knocked down way cheap because Pentax has released the K1 now) (and I don't need the differences between the 3 & the 1. These fern's are in a shade bed in my front yard. (the cave shots above were taken with my cell phone) So, the camera you see in the top shot is my old K7body with a heavy small zoom on it that I think I will be leaving in the cave more or less unless we travel. ( sometimes it's nice to just have another lens on a sling when your walking around shooting)

Happy 7th WOYWW Stacy - I'm sorry you havne't been able to link up. I shall have a go at doing it for you. It's weird but it seems to have worked for everyone except about 5 deskers. I don't understand! Your craft space is looking especially creative this week!!

Your desk is quite exciting with all the finds and you should have an interesting time with the handmade paper.

Very interesting desk! I really like photography, but am a 'point and push' person! :)

Happy WOYWW # 7
I have to agree with you about not having a tidy space I end up getting sidetracked when it's not put away and your space is looking good I guess I never get to a yard sale with scrapbooking stuff ever ... must be to late lol

Hi Stacy, I love a tidy space but don't always have one, maybe I need to make more effort. Wishing you a happy and crafty 7th woyww anniversary, Angela x 30

Wish we had yard sales over here. I have always wanted to go to one when I have been in america but so far not done so. Thanks for sharing your yield.
Here's to another year of WOYWW friendships
