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!

Hi my WOYWW friends, time to  check a few desks to see what you are all up to and, of course, say hello!
There's not a lot on my desk this morning, partly because I've just finished a couple of projects and had to clear a space for the next.  I have a little tip to share with you with the label dies soon, and the papers are from the Artylicious CD which I have just bought.  I like the idea of being able to print inserts in matching papers and the designs are beautiful. 

Now for my bottom drawer!


A lot of you have shown interest in what's in this drawer, partly I suppose because it's always open.  The reason for this is it holds my embossing folders, dies, and paper packs which I use all the time and like to have handy.  I did a quick count of the dies - I got to 39! and I think some of the CD cases are doubled up!!  Oh dear, what a lot of cash tied up in a shoe box!!!  I store my paper packs in plastic folders, again handy to see and get at.  The rest of my papers are stored in A4 folders in the bookcase, and the 12 x 12's live under the sofa!

Well now it's time to get my hair cut, and then I'll be doing a bit of blogging, see you around.

Nice desk and a lovely tidy drawer. I am such a messy worker. Even though I have magnetic mats for my dies I still find them lying all over the place

I am glad to hear I am not the only one who stores craft stuff under furniture.

Neat space. I, too, have quite a bit of cash tied up in a drawer of two.

It makes me cringe when I think what i've spent in the last couple of years on craft... in the last 6 months is bad enough eek!!!

I'm spying the Artylicious CD papers on your desk... thats the only CD of Glenda's I don't have - but will put that right one day.

Can't wait to see your tip for the lables as i have those too.

So chuffed that you're on the Graphicus DT - I think that is a really prestigious one to be on - well, in my eyes anyway as Glenda is so talented and professional.

big hugs, i'll be back soon,

Good evening Ikki, Again a lovely tidy desk. My goodness 39 dies. I thought I had a few but 39 and theres more coming out. Bigger ones to fit 12 x 12 pages too big for me unless you scrapbook.
Thanks for the snoop. Hugs JO.xx

Under the sofa? That's a new one, lol! I do like the way a workspace develops to suit the person who's using it, tho.

very neat and tidy and i think you need to buy another die to make it up to a round number..40 sounds good to me!!

It's so nice to get a haircut, especially if you like the results. I had a required tutorial to post on Thursday and had trouble getting back to the WOYWW blogs. Like you, I can't even begin to add up the amount of money I've spent on supplies in the last few months. And I'm a dumpster diver, too. Imagine if I bought everythng new. Have a great weekend.
