WOYWW 86


Now before you say anything, this is my area when I first moved in back in the summer....Everything pretty neat and tidy and still very clean!  I spoke to you about my craft cabinet....did I tell you how very much I love this thing?  My husband had it built for me and it holds a world of STUFF!


Open the doors and this is what it hides!  My Mess!  Now I don't share these photos with just anybody.....so since I have shown you, I might just have to kill you!  When I see a picture like this, I always think of a saying my Grandmother always used....."Shabby but Neat".  She was referring to an apron with a patch on it, but she had starched and ironed it to perfection.  The moral of her story is no matter how little you have, keep it clean and neat.  I can close the doors on this cabinet and feel very neat!


This is my workdesk this morning.  I've been working on a birthday card for a boy.  Boys cards have always been a challenge for me.  You would think that having 4 Grandsons I would be very much into making their cards.  I love to send them cards, but they are still hard for me to make!

So there you have it....Just a little about my life, my journey, and my secrets.  Now if you want to become a part of this madness....just go here:  Stamping Ground   Take a little look around and link your own photos of what your workdesk looks like.  Don't be bashful, just jump in with both feet.  I just love to be nosey and look at all the pictures of what you have going on in your life!  We all have our own little messes and sharing is good for the soul!

Neat, don't know the meaning of it! Just close the drawer, cupboard etc and everything is fine lol!! Love your cupboard. Know what you mean about boy cards, don't think they would appreciate some flowers and glitz! Have a great day. Carolxx....75

Olga said...

well thanks to you I did this too, took a pic, posted on my blog LOL, I shouldn't of it's such a mess LOL. Your room is so neat and in order!

Sylvia said...

I will just continue to look at your phot's on Wednesday! My room gets picked up then it's mess again. I spend hours reorganizing every year, the last of June, Ist of July when SU changes catalogs. I swear it does not take me a week to mess it up. I have a closet in the hall that I house all the non SU stuff and it is as neat as can be and I can find stuff. I just do not have enough places to organize all the SU stuff. I guess I need to get rid of some! Have a fun day!

I love your cabinet and they tell me my great grandma wore a starched white apron at all times. She also carried a cap and ball pistol in the pocket

Candace said...

Its a good job you live a long way away from me as I may have to come over and steal that jar of yummy buttons!

Have a great week

A lovely space and a nice busy desk! I'm intrigued though - what punches do you have lurking on your desk this week?

Spyder said...

Good Idea to have a cupboard o hide it all, I close the door on mine but I know it'll still be there. Trouble is, when I tidy up I put things in different places hoping that will work, but then I forget their new place and have to hunt everthing out to find them again!. I can remember my gran's both having aprons on all he time, very rather saw them with out one.

Happy WOYWW ((Lyn))

That's not so bad... love your cabinet!

S said...

I'm a big believer in hiding supplies behind closed doors too. Thanks for the peek inside.

Awesome cabinet...really takes care of the clutter. Our sweet little grandmas....they just had the basics always put to good use. I made many aprons for 4-H but my mother pitched things regularly can remember the checkered ones.I should have a few as messy as I get sometimes..Enjoy the day.

Starla said...

What a great cabinet!! I've decided to join you and Sherry this week on WOYWW....just have to take some pics!!

MaggieC said...

Thank you for visiting me this morning and thanks for such a lovely comment. I love your storage cupboard, made specially for you. Why is it that cards for men and boys are so hard to do?

judith@poppy cottage said...

Great storage cupboard. You're right about boys' cards being tough to make. Happy Wednesday, Judith xx

Wipso said...

What a fab craft store. I could spend a happy hour or more rummaging in there :-)

Ciara said...

And that's what cabinet doors are for!!

Love your jar of buttons, they look like sweets (sorry, candies!)

Pam said...

Bit like minxy my craft room only looks tidy when I shut the door. Fab storage. Hugs Pam x

Neet said...

Do you loan your husband out to do makeovers? What a fabulous cabinet - such a lucky lady and such a talented man.

Helen said...

What a lovely full cupboard - and so neat! love your desk too, very creative.

Hi Glenda, wow you have such a clever husband. Mine went up a ladder to paint the porch fell off and broke his ankle in three places!! -off work for 6 months. That is as far as it goes with him ha ha. Just love all that stash you have as well. Thanks for the peek and your previous post with the box is so lovely too. Big Hugs JO.xx *48*

Andria said...

I'd love the room to have a stash cuboard like yours :)

Carola Bartz said...

Closing the cabinet doors and the mess is gone is just super-neat!! I need something like that.
Thank you for stopping by earlier.

Vicki B in OP NY said...

What a gem of a husband who will build a cabinet to store your treasures. And like magic, doors close and no craft supplies in sight. Love it - plus it looks so organized inside.
Vicki 108 A little inkling

Love the cabinet. Gotta love a husband that gets a cabinet built to store your stash. Thanks for sharing.

sandra de said...

the cabinet is a great idea, once the doors are closed no one has a clue how much stuff is hiding inside. Good luck with the boy cards.
Sandra

Theresa said...

GREAT cabinet! Love all that storage and your desk looks like you are in creative mode! Love it!

Susan ~ Killam Creative said...

Whoa, now that's a great husband *and* a great cabinet! I'll be you know where every little thing is, right? Except for those things you forgot you had... you could go "shopping" in that cabinet. Haha! :)

Cheers,

Lovely cabinet Glenda and it does indeed hold a world of stuff! And your Grandma was right too, you don't have to have loads of money or possessions to have a bit of pride do you? Busy desk today and I liked your story of WalMart money! Everything went very well yesterday, it took longer to drive there and back than the amount of time we spent in that building!

Hugs
Brenda

Love your cupboard. I wish I could close the doors on my mess, but my desk is in the open plan dining room. Thanks for your kind comments on my blog. The PIN number still isn't working - now waitig for a new card

knitwit said...

Oh, I love that craft cabinet! I have a set of shelves, but no doors to hide the mess!!

Elizabeth said...

Love your store cupboard - as my mother would have said, it covers a multitude of sins. A bit like my little craft room - shut the door and you cannot see the chaos inside. I took at peek at your previous post and the box is very pretty, pretty and useful :) Elizabeth #60

Marjo said...

That's a beautiful mess Glenda. *Ü* Wise words from your grandma. I LOVE your card in your Slide which says 'Faith is the things hoped for...' TFS. ~Glen~

Tina Gilmore said...

Marvellous craft cupboard and it's given me a great idea on what to do with my own stash. xx

Chrissie said...

If only I had doors too!
