WOYWW #115

Lots to share today, but not pictures of the work corner.  I was on holiday last week, we went to a caravan on the Dorset coast and were treated to weather good enough to allow us at least some time on the beach every day.
Since we've been back the grand re-organisation has started but, as it involves moving some furniture around and a considerable amount of sorting, there is no visible progress yet.  I have got a nice big bag of craft supplies to go to the adult education centre and an envelope started for Charity Crafter.

Whilst turning out I kept finding little bits of left overs from other projects.  I know as crafters we keep everything, as everything really can be used, but it gets to a point where you have to say 'NO MORE!'.  Whilst chucking some bits out the remains of 4 other projects fell together and I made this.
Kanban card, digi printout from Kirsty Wiseman, a die cut from a magazine, Papermania kraft card and I added some Girls Paperie words.

A couple of weeks ago I mentioned Smash Books.  I still haven't got an actual book but I have been playing with some of the supplies that I took on holiday with me.  Nothing finished yet, but now I keep seeing potential supplies everywhere.  Here are some goodies that I bought in Paperchase that were labelled 'Study Kit'.
And finally for those who want to know and haven't had time to Google about Smash Books yet, here's the video.  WARNING: very catchy music that will be in your head for at least the rest of the day, if not longer!


Scoot over to here to see all the other workdesks today at Julia's Stamping Ground.

Almost forgot, did anyone watch Wilfred last night?  May Flaum recommended it so I watched.  Laughed a little, but I don't quite get it yet, might need a few more episodes for it to grow on me.

Hello Kate, thanks for visiting and commenting on my blog. Glad you're interested in Jules Sunday Snippet Challenge - it's just for fun and there's no theme to stick to each week, all that is asked is that you make your projects with snippets/leftovers. Elizabeth x #70

The whole smash book thing is a lot of fun. I started doing what I call my Trash books for traveling years ago and it is so much fun looking at them now. Have a great week. Thanks for sharing. Vickie
