Simon Says Stamp and Show...Grungy Monday

Morning folks...I know that this was supposed to be a WORK week...but so far the best laid plans have gone slightly haywire...the cubbyhole is now undergoing a major tidy-up...once I started sorting out the bits and pieces into my new Timmie storage I discovered stuff that hasn't seen the light of day for years...but more about that in a mo.  With all the Timmie bits and pieces littering my workdesk....how could I resist having a little play with Tim Holtz Kraft Resist Paper Stash....Distress Inks and my new Tattered Banners Die...and a chance to join in the fun at one of my favourite challenge blogs.....Simon Says Stamp and Show.
The challenge this week is....
SHOW A TAG...
I'm also playing along for the very first time at a great challenge blog celebrating the techniques and products of the Lord of All Things Holtziness..the King of Distress...yes the one and only Mr Tim Holtz and the challenge this week over at Grungy Monday is.....
DISTRESS INK-O-RAMA

which has left me thinking....I definitely need more TIME TO CREATE which certainly isn't helped by my bad habit of being so easily side-tracked.  Once I got into tidy-up mode I just kept on going and hey it's amazing what you find....all those must-have rub-ons

that have been hiding in a box...completely forgotten ...out of sight is definitely out of mind.   So things are about to change in the cubbyhole...I am filing stuff away in these fab clear folders available from The Glitter Pot...
perfect for storing pieces of fabric...felt...kraft paper and my current DT and workshop projects....all geared up to make the cubbyhole a more efficient...well-oiled...running like clockwork crafting machine...less time looking for stuff means more time to create....well that's the theory.
Catch up with you all tomorrow over at WOYWW...hopefully back in creative mode.

Love your tag - I didn't think I'd seen you playing here before! And you got to tidy up some too. A great day all round I think.

Mmmmm Kath - can I hear the famous Mr Burns in my ear? The Best Laid Plans etc etc etc ...........

Once you've finished there could you pay a little visit to me - a major tidy out is required!!! Coffee with lemon and blueberry muffins will be supplied in excess!!

Your tag's wonderful! I love the gathering at the bottom - I never think to do that. Hmmm....what a great touch that'd be with my current obsession - the dress form! lol
