The wanderer has returned to WOYWW!  Not really a wanderer, just not had the energy to do anything much apart from work and sleep. A poor excuse I know!  I think the hot weather is to blame, it pretty much wiped me out, but I'm not really complaining, it's marvellous!!

Time to show and tell what I've been up to.  The bit of time I have spent in my Craft room has been sorting out my die storage.  More about that here and a pic to illustrate I did it (at last).

Now on to my desk, I did take a pic last weekend after I had been shopping. Christmas in July at my Craft shop, and free goodies ... so a pic of my freebies

However not much crafting action, apart from finishing some birthday cards and a bit of work on my travel scrap book, and so unlike me to leave it messy, but here was my desk this morning

That's all from me for this week.  Short and sweet.  Have a lovely week! Heather x


  1. Great photos, and such great freebies :)
    A very happy WOYWW to you!

  2. Evening Heather, it still looks like you have been busy even if it is sorting and purchasing hee hee!! The label machine was a gift from my eldest a couple of years ago and I find it invaluable especially if I can not find the right sentiment I can just print a personal one out.. You'll not regret it.
    Have a super week & try not to work too hard. Thanks for sharing WOYWW Hugs Tracey #3
    P.S Love that Christmas Jumper booklet :)

  3. Hiya Heather, good to see you again! I quite enjoyed having a peek at your messy (for you) desk and those freebies are brilliant. I hadn't seen that Christmas jumper colouring book before, that;s fun!

  4. Hi Heather, always like them short and sweet. If you get round to painting some pebbles do let us see them. Have a great woyww and a lovely crafty week, Angela x17x

  5. Hi Heather, I think the hot weather has had an enervating affect on most people and it doesn't help if the heat prevents sleep too. I'm sure that come the cooler weather you'll be back to your travel scrapbook again. Have a great week. Elizabeth x #31

  6. My goodness what a hive of activity this week, Heather. Your room looks so nice and busy and fun! I love your storage solution and great freebies too.

    Thank you for your visit to my blog. I had hoped to get one box finished by tomorrow but soon realised it was a hopeless aim, and anyway I've been too exhausted these past few days and fighting off a headache so I didn't put myself under any pressure. They will get done eventually! Glad you like my little cat trio - it was quite a find and I'm thrilled with it!

    Happy WOYWW,

  7. I think most of us have not had energy for crafting during this hot summer! Helen #1

  8. Your desk is a sign of busy crafting. Good to get dies sorted (never easy). Lovely to get some freebies. Thanks for sharing. Hope you have a good day - Hazel, WOYWW #15 x

  9. Hi Heather, just been and looked at your die storage. I've done mine very similarly, but using Avery Elle pockets instead. Yours is a great idea to use the pockets- I have loads in my craft room, and use them for storing all sorts of craft stuff. I pick mine up in Poundland, in various sizes too.Have a lovely week, Hugs, Shaz #5 XxX

  10. Okay, you have a bit of a mess as well,not quite as bad as mine for sure! heehee
    Love to see what you make with those dies!
    Happy #WOYWW

  11. A mess shows that some crafting has been taking place Heather. Glad to see you back. The hot weather is not the best for letting you focus on things is it? At least you managed to get your die storage sorted; well done for that. Happy WOYWW. Sarah #19

  12. I definitely am complaining. We had a couple of days of rainy breezy respite and now the heat is back in full force. I am not a happy bunny. Hopefully we'll have a break soon so we can get crafty again.

    Have a lovely week,

  13. Happy Belated WOYWW and thank you for your earlier visit. We are buying a holiday home in Spain. We may well end up spending most of the year there, as we both love it so much. However, in the summer we will be back in the UK (to escape the REALLY hot Spanish weather and spend time with grandchildren) as a minimum. I am telling everyone to come and have a holiday in Pembrokeshire. It is just comfortable weather here (about 21 or 22). Ali x #7

  14. I like the look of Christmas Jumper coloring. Can we see when you do some? Karen 26

  15. It's a great feeling when you get things sorted out isn't it - I've just had a peek at your dies and that's a brilliant idea with the plastic wallets - over the years I've bought the A4 magnetic folders but they are quite bulky - your system looks like it would take up less space but I don't know if I can face reorganising them all again!!
    Hope you have a great week, sorry I'm so late getting round,

  16. Ah, die storage, perpetual nightmare. Like your idea though, I find the folders by DoCrafts and Tonic not very satisfactory, maybe when I have time I'll sort mine!!!
