Hi

Hi, Thanks for dropping by.

My name is Eileen but to friends in the card making world I'm known as 'ikki'. (which is pronounced I-KEY) From where or how this came about I'm not sure - it just got shorten from my original craft name of Ikemo by various friends along my crafting way! I started crafting whilst recouperating from an accident, and from my first attempts with peeloffs and paint - I was hooked! Now my passion is my BUG! and now BEADING!

In the Cupboard you will find ideas, news, tips and techniques to help you get more from this fab little machine. So come in - join the fun and Cuttle with me!

WOYWW

Good morning WOYWW'ers - hope you are all well and enjoying doing whatever you are doing.  Me, I'm trying to organize myself before I get completely out of control!  I can't say it's a pleasure because I'm facing up to tasks that have been left lying/lurking about for ages, but I think that finishing them will bring a feeling of positivity and perhaps even a smugness!

To start I've moved over to the other side of my room

I have lots of bits of paper and bills to pay and make decisions on, boring but....MUST DO.  My printer is also collecting papers that need copying/saving whatever, I can even see  2 discs and I have'nt a clue what's on them!  On the bright side I have a empty cupboard! 

                                                   


Now to my desk.....
On the left another pile of allsorts for sorting.....on the right my sketch pad for ideas just in case one pops into my head (some hope whilst I'm paying bills).....I'm resisting the temptation to put the lot into the empty cupboard!  The rest of my desk is hiding under the red cloth - it's my little secret  because I'm in the middle to a  project that is literally under wraps. Will show you soon - it's on my list along with some really interesting stuff like defrosting the freezer, washing, ironing.....etc. 

Have a good day, hope to catch up with you later.

Don't envy you with the paperwork :-/ As for washing it's such a pain, you wash and iron then people wear the clothes and you have to do it all over again! Can't wait to see what's under wraps :) I actually have some WIPs on my desk today.

Kaz said...

I'd have shoved the papers in the empty cupboard by now! I am in awe of you tackling the papers, it's something I need to do but dread. Don't suppose you fancy doing mine?
Looking forward to seeing what's under the cloth xxx

Paula Gale said...

oooh - you are a very disciplined person - I so would have ditched the bills and paper work by now in that empty cupboard space - hats off to you LOL.

Hope your move to the other side of the room is not too traumatic...

And, being the nosey bird that I am, can't wait until you move the blanket for a big reveal LOL

Don't you just hate it when those necessary evils like defrosting the freezer must take precedence over art? At least you have your sketchpad at the ready, if only, if only.

Sorry I'm so late visiting, and on my first ever WOYWW. Unexpected company interrupted my computer time today. I'll be back, that's for sure. I want to see what's under wraps.

Bettythebaglady said...
