Someday, the altered art you make today will be
old, faded, falling apart, and someone else will salvage the bits and use them
in new altered art.It's the best that any piece of art can hope for

WOYWW..... The Real Nicks is back

or at least the desk is back to its usual state.... not that you can tell because you can't actually see the desk... its been tidy for too many Wednesday's, but fear not normal surface is resumed...
I am in the middle of a project but can't scan anymore to the right in case you can catch a glimpse...because the project may be for you!! I don't think I have left any clues out as to what/for whom it is for, but you may be able to see I have been using paints, embossing powders, cosmic shimmers and my metal working tools.

cast your eyes to the right and you will be able to see my new toys... some metalwork alphabet punches... wanted some for ages and found a bargain on Amazon!

I have been very brave and have taken pictures of the rest of my craft room... it may not look it but it is very well organised, I bet you I know where everything is!
So here it is

top row is to my right... stamps, bits and pieces on the shelves and glues and tools and gesso etc etc in the cupboard... punches, ink-pads, embossing powders etc in the little drawers ... whoops didn't remove the dustpan and brush, but at least you know I do sweep up occasionally!
Bottom row.. paints and bottles of stuff... books and boxes of stuff..

There, now you have seen it......

oh and just one more picture, a few of you asked to see what was in my booty bag of fabric, well here it is (plus a few extra bits I already had) neatly put away in a drawer -

- talking of drawers maybe we should share them next time (the open close variety, not underwear!!)


  1. Oh my, that was a LOVELY nosey around your place! You've got so much STUFF I am seriously impressed. Well organised stuff too, which coming from a neat freak like me is a real accolade! Thanks for sharing.

  2. Love your storage spaces. That is seriously one lot of golden syrup tins I can see [result of lots of flapjacks maybe?]. I really love all your fabrics in the drawer...thanks for sharing them.

  8. Can I move into your craft room this weekend? What a place! It is absolutely gobsmackingly fabulous. Teehehee, I was going to ask what you have in there, but I think writing an inventory would probably take you a few weeks. Can I be envious, is that bad?

  9. Oh wow Nicks...just wow! Your desk is an amazing enough place, without the swing! You are a secret tidy gal I need the order and organisation so that you can get creative on the desk! If you're prepared to tell us all, we'll all come around this summer!!
