Behind The Scenes WOYWW

 straight out of the cupboard
                                                 (mug stain included)
 with the first few tools added

 plus more essential items

 the end of a craft session.
Just for a change, I thought I'd show 'behind the scenes' of a craft session on my worktable. When finished, I simply reverse the photo order to put it all away. But it's always much quicker getting stash out than putting it back!
This weekly gathering of Nosy People is hosted by Dame Julia so hop over to her place to join in. I'm going there now to poke around everyone's workdesks.


  1. My heart goes out to you having to get it all out every time you craft. I'm so messy when I work that I'm really glad I just have to shut the door on mine. Love your table though.

  2. oh there's nothing like a dame..!!
    Great way to show your desk Ann - I do like the idea of starting with a clear desk, blank canvas for each session.

  3. It must be a pain to have to put everything by - but as Julia said it must be lovely having a clear workspace to start with. I do wish i was tidy!!

  4. Well, I may not be a tidy crafter but my "desk" (I have to work on the floor...) is vaguely clear when I start... sort of.

  5. You get 10 out of 10 for effort. I think I would end up leaving everything out!

  6. I love the deterioration of the room!! You're so disciplined tidying away afterwards xxx

  7. its a good job you have to put everything away each time - imagine what it would look like it you didn't lol.

    i see your 'photo booth' on the floor...i think you show great discipline to put it away each time ...i don't have that!!! (discipline that is)

  8. Well done telling the story of a crafty session! I must admit the messy bit was my favourite!

  9. I don't think I would craft as much if I had to tidy it all away, in fact i know I did less before I had my "space".

  10. That was fun ...loved the insight into your scrapping life xx

  11. I love that you clear everything away after a crafting sessiona dn start each time with a aclean slate :) I try and do the same although i am able to leave my desk out all the time.

  12. looks like you have a fun filled craft session!

    well dont on pulling it all out and putting it away again!


  13. What a lovely action post ... and well done you on always putting it away ... a chore I am sure that should never be underestimated!

  14. Oh, I couldn't even image having to take it all out and put it all away, I would just leave it all over the place =)

  15. Love the time lapse photography Ann, sorry you have to pack it up each time though, and definitely 10 out of 10 for effort as Clare says.

  16. I am sure I commented last night ???? probably forgot to press post ...loved seeing your area's growth infront of the camera

  17. Hey, that was fun...i love seeing creativity happen, especially the 'behind the scenes'!

    thanks for sharing that...

    I am fortunate to have a studio space to work in, where I can just leave everything out at my different stations....I tidy up now and again, just usually not right after a creative session.....I'm spoiled! What can I say! heehe

    happy creating!
    ciao bella
    thanks for coming by! I love it when you visit!


  18. Sweet happy photos there to work on. Do you like your little Tonic cutter? I need a good portable trimmer and can't find one I REALLY like.

  19. I think your desk looks really tidy!!! Thanks for your comment on my blog, it was really nice I'm glad you enjoy reading. Glad I'm not the only one who has to tidy up after scrapping! x x

  20. when finish??? Finish? I don't think I know what that words means!!

  21. Loved this post so much I went and did one about my own workspace and just posted it on my blog!
    Thanks for your comment!
    It's been a while since you've stopped by. Thanks so much for looking :)
