WOYWW #388 - More Decluttering!

Having super cleaned and tidied one side of my room for the ceiling repairs the other week I though my actual "Craft Corner" needed some sorting too. Fortunately I found a "before" photo from back in June to show the difference.

  

OK so truth be told I did manage to visit my old (now closed down) craft shop's sale in a church hall. They have them now and again but this was the first I could make and at 10p a sheet for 12x12 papers/card I got a job lot. Oh and some brads and a décopatch turtle for good measure.

So perhaps all the new stash pushed me to declutter more? Whatever, it is a bit better now but I have my eye on the top shelf now!!


The new papers did get me started on some more LOs. The Queen on her way to Epsom Derby and our Preschool celebrating the Queen's 90th Birthday. They sent the Queen a birthday card and she sent a reply which was great.

Oh and did you manage to spot my new addition from last week?



I made him up Wednesday evening whilst watching TV. I used lime green thread, of various shades, which was all I had in my stash. Plus I added different buttons for his eyes and one on the heart and I did french knots on the bib too. The ribbon hanger was from a cardigan. I'd just snipped them out although I'd had the cardi for years!!

So I guess that is me for the week.

Happy WOYWW Everyone.

Happy WOYWW. My big decluttering continues too - and I have nearly emptied my ex-sewing cupboard (sold my sewing machine, as I was not using it and needed the cash to help pay vets bills). Loving the owls. Ali x #12

Nice to de clutter every now and then. i think our tastes and styles seem to change over the years, so it's good to get rid of what we no longer use. Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #8 xx

Ooh those little owls are gorgeous - I do love the green and grey colour combo. I am always trying to de-clutter and sort my stuff but then I go and buy a load more - it's a vicious circle!! It looks like you got a great bargain with those 12x12 papers, and some lovely colours too.
Hope you have a great week,

Doesn't it feel good to declutter. I need to do that myself. Great layout. It is wonderful that she sent a reply to your card.
