Card organizer on my W (WOYWW)


Well, it’s another W – how do they manage to come around so quickly?  Lots of summer colds round mine this week – knock wood, all but ME at the moment but that is usually how it goes.  I stay well just long enough to take care of the rest of them, fetching drinks and cool cloths and making Lem-Sip and then get sick just when they are all better and getting on with life LOL!  I’m just hoping Blogger is over it’s problems from last week so that I can tuck DS up in bed and blog hop the day away.

Here’s my W this week:

Not very exciting this week, although I think it will be when it’s done – after my cardmaking blitz last week I decided I needed a card organizer.  I looked at quite a  few on t’internet, some really nice ones, then went my own way.  With luck I’ll finish it soonish and can share it then!

I picked up this paper pack in the USA and while I love it, the papers are a bit on the thin side so they are perfect for the way I am doing the organizer. The image is for the 5×7 pack although wha I have is the 12 x 12!

  1. Yummy papers your desk looks interesting

  2. Thanks for the peek at your interesting desk and look forward to seeing that organiser finished.

  3. I could do with some serious organisation of card etc. I have it in boxes and drawers but I still spend ages searching for the right colour!
    Oh for a purpose built craft space!

  4. Good luck with the card storage – I keep mine in a little suitcase that is in desperate need of altering but I havent got around to it yet! Lovely papers too.

  5. Look forward to seeing the finished card storage idea. Looks to me as though you like punches?!?

  42. What fab paper! Don’t know that range…!

  43. Lovely papers! I need them lol xx

  44. I’m always curious about storage, and card storage is important, too, even though I’m not a card maker. I hope everyone gets better in your world. It’s no fun to play nurse.

    I’m curious what is in the box in the back right with the white heart on it. OK, I’m a snoop!

    • LOL! That is one of the inserts from an embellishment organizer. I took all the boxes out of the bag (wish I could remember what the name of it was!) and it holds little bits like eyelets or brads or beads. I like it because there is a sort of trigger on the side that lets you open just one of the compartments so you can tip them out without having to dump out allll the sections!

Thanks for dropping by. I hope you found something interesting and welcome your feedback. If you ask a question, and don't add your email, do either subscribe to replies or check back. I try to answer every question if I can. Cheers!
