A Mess..... In fact a huge mess, I went to Wrexham Art Stamps show on Saturday, what a great little show. I did have a little spend, Tim Holtz ink pads £3.50, oh why not i think i needed a couple!
Lavinia Stamps where there too, I have seen her before at Harrogate show so already have some of her stuff, But she does the most amazing backgrounds with a brayer, so Sunday I dusted off my Brayer got my ink pads out and started to get messy. This is obviously something that needs loads of practice, so down it went and i got my Tim Holtz inky thing out (Not sure of the Technical name) and wow loved it!

I though I might share a bit more today of my craft room, seen as my desk is such a close picture to try and hide the mess!

You can see my Ikea rails these hold so much stash, these are just above my desk so always ready to grab, My shelves hold lots of stuff, and i have drawers below these that hold things like my Martha Stewart punches and bigger stuff.
Have a great Wednedsay, and if you are wondering why i am showing you my Mess, Pop over to the lovely Julia, and desk hop around the world.


  1. Oooh! That card came out gorgeous! You did a truely fabulous job with the colors! I think that inky things is a perfectly acceptable term. I'd know what you meant! LOL! Thanks for sharing your Wednesday -Amanda

  2. That's a pretty, girly card - I like it very much. The misty background is really effective! Have a good crafting week :) xx

  7. Great to have all your stuff nearby. It doesn't look very messy. And your Lavinia card is fab. Love these stamps and you will find some Lavinia cards on my blog too (Look the older post).
    Thanks for sharing. Franka

  8. Love your work and the shelves are wonderful! thanks for sharing!

  9. thanks for the peek. That brayered piece looks gorgeous. I don't do that much brayering, preferring using Tim's sponging tool instead.
    I think I need to pull mine out...
    Have a great day

  10. Sorry I'm late Tammy! I just love the brayered piece - totally gorgeous. Lucky you having shelves and those Ikea buckets - wallspace in here is at a premium! I might be buying a wire wheeled veggie trolly for overspill from my desk at this rate :) Hugs, Di xxx

  11. Looks pretty organized to me. Love your little piece of art work. Tried it once - need more practice believe me. #92

  12. I love your work space and those Ikea rails are awesome. I'm not allowed to put anything on the wall because of where my temporary desk is, in the living room if you can believe it. My room (if it ever gets finished) is the never ending winter project in progress. Thanks for sharing your desk and Happy WOYWW :D

  13. Hi Tammy, love Lavinia stamps and your background technique is terrific - I've still to perfect the brayer thing too. Thanks for the peek at your storage area - very organised. Elizabeth x #73

  14. Love your project with the Lavinia stamps. Awesome background! Awesome craft space. Sorry I am so late getting around but once again life has interfered with what I want to do! Thanks for sharing. Vickie
