Well I am not going to actually link this to Julie's gorgeous blog as I truly have not used my desk since last time (3 weeks ago I think!) - life and Molly (puppy) have taken over and crafting is still having to take a back seat. I am now having serious withdrawal symptoms and need to get inky asap.

In the meantime I have been doing more clearing out of unwanted 'stuff' from my craft room and have also managed to upload a couple of videos to Utube of more completed minis if you would like to look.  - two in one go may be a bit much though!!

I've been missing in action from Julie's fabulous blog for a few weeks due - as my regular readers will know - mainly to this ...

... and for the same (and other) reasons my 'desk' has had to move downstairs for the time being ... well actually and literally 'under the stairs' ... this is not as bad as it sounds as the dining table and the kitchen are both close at hand.

I have utilised some 'custom door storage' ...

And have the use of these shelves for everything else - well the stash mountain doesn't all fit but maybe less 'stuff' will concentrate the mind and increase creativity/productivity ...

I am still attempting to complete the little mini that was on my desk four weeks ago (it's still there in the picture above) but only two pages and the covers are left to do now ...

If you like peeking into other peoples lives head over to Julie's Stamping Ground for a weekly fix.

More than two weeks have gone by with very little crafting  - almost none! - due mainly to this little 'time waster'.

Molly is now 10 weeks old and really 'finding her feet' - in some 'good ways' but mostly she is 'trouble on four legs' - luckily she's adorable!

Back to crafting shortly I hope. I do have a video to be going on with - this is another mini album created with some old basic grey papers. The pages are made from toilet paper rolls ...
