Less Is More Challenge...

Morning much for the Indian Summer weather that was supposed to happen in September...all we've had is 2 or 3 glorious days before it went pear shaped and back to windy chilly and wet AGAIN...mega miffed that we missed out on yesterday's day out but there's no point in crying over spilt milk...nothing else for it but to console ourselves with another day in the cubbyhole playing with Timmie's new's such a hard life...being a crafty addict...
And I think this one may qualify for the challenge this week over at Less Is More...
yes I know it's Friday so once again I'm skidding in by the seat of my pants...

But all that playing has it's drawbacks...the workdesk this morning looked like a tornado had blown can having fun create such I set to work at silly o'clock with help from the big bin bags and Mr Dyson and before you know we've cleared the decks all ready for a serious work day...
 even the furry member of the crew is on his way to lend a helping hand...
with the workshop and demo stuff that's been piling up.  I...however needed a bit of persuasion...a kick up the butt to get back in the groove but I came up with a plan...negotiated a deal and a carrot on a stick incentive is on it's way...bribery works everytime so if I gee my ginger and hit the targets... I'll get to play with...
these gorgeous boys from Hero Arts...I just couldn't amount of trying to talk myself out of having them was ever going to work...they are fabulous "lots of mileage" stamps...perhaps a little tease for a workshop coming soon. But time to set the plan in motion...crank up the production line...motivate the crew and get cracking.
See you all tomorrow

  5. Love your card, love the stitched detail. Love your tidy workspace and your lovely helper. Lots of hugs to Buddy and have fun today.

  6. Absolutely fab Kath and I can't wait to see what you do with these new delish stamps from Hero Arts x

  7. Lovely card as always. I am so envious of your craft space, so much storage, and it is so tidy today! Mine regularly gets in a total tip, so I know how much hard work it is to get it looking like this!

  8. Morning Kath, what a lovely tidy, well organised room now! I really must do mine too. Loving those Timmy stamps, waiting for mine to arrive from SSS, can't wait. Your pink and brown is gorgeous and those Hero Arts stamps look fabulous. (Note to self - you have enough Christmas stamps now...). Hope the weather picks up. Crafty hugs, Anne x

  9. Oh Kath.... I do love your craft room - something to strive for and dream about .... love the HA stamps and look forward to seeing the results of your 'play time' - I know I don't comment very often but I do 'visit you' everyday.... and drool....
    Have a great day.

  10. Loving your latest Christmas card Kath. I keep thinking I'm doing well with Christmas cards and then realise how close Christmas is. Made another appointment when I came out the blood donor unit yesterday and thought what date?!!!! It can't be that number of weeks till Christmas!

    Hope it's going to stay nice today but I don't think I'll leave my washing out when I go to work in the afternoon!

  11. Morning Kath,
    Love your LIM card, the new Tim snowflake is fab. Great job as always.
    The Cubbyhole looks like a fun place to play - all those yummy products, and so tidy too. Loving the new Hero Christmas stamps - I said I wasn't buying any this year but the Christmas trees are a must have - enjoy. Can't wait to see what you come up with.
    Have a great weekend, hope the weather gets better for you. xx

  12. Lovely tidy space Kath, you should see mine! Hurricane Enfys has hit land! Those stamps....mmmm, going shopping I think

  13. Looks like you had a very good tidy up. The Hero lads look great fun too & I agree - lots of mileage. Like your sewing take on the brown & pink......

  15. Hi Kath, your cubbyhole looks fantastic, who wouldn't love to play in there for a day. Love the pink on brown, the snowflake looks great along with the stitching. I can't say that I really like the other stamps very trendy but not for me. I do like the Hero Art ones though, they are gorgeous and can't wait to see what you do with them. Have a good weekend, hope the sun shines.

  16. Can you and Mr. Dyson come for a visit? I promise all the coffee that you can drink! Your cubby hole looks fantastic. Can understand why you couldn't resist those stamps, can't wait to see what you do with 'em.

  17. Love the circles for the snowflakes and the stitching. Fab craft space. x


Thanks for taking the time to visit me in the cubbyhole...I love to hear from you.
