Idle hands mean trouble...

Hi folks...I'm definitely a "got to be doing" kind of person...even when I'm watching TV my hands have to be busy and with crafting out of the question due to the dodgy wrist I was sure there must be some little tidy up jobs in the cubbyhole I could manage and me being me I should have realised that this was probably going to lead to a whole lot of trouble...after all idle hands are the devil's tools or so they say.
What started off as a simple re-labelling the Distress Ink pads task turned into a mega re-arrangement of the cubbyhole's shelving system and all because the Lord of All Things Holtziness keeps bringing out more and more fabulous stuff...the cubbyhole supply of TH goodies needed more space and what I really need is this...
but they're made in Australia and I can't wait so time to move stuff around and commandeer another shelf...
but in solving that little problem I ended up creating another...the ribbon pile is now homeless and at the moment squatting on my workdesk...well it can't stay there indefinitely...
so I'm working on a plan for extra shelving but that will require all my powers of persuasion to sweet talk the DIY guru around here to move out to the freezing cold garage and spend some time with his jigsaw...wish me luck.  
Wishing my fellow Scots wherever in the world you may be...a very Happy St Andrews Day...
I'll leave you with a sneaky peek...
and see you all tomorrow for another Penny Black Saturday Challenge

  1. A Happy St Andrew's to you too! Hope your wrist mends fast. Sneaky peak looks intriguing ... Ger x

  2. Can't believe there is someone else in the world with as much ribbon as me! That storage system looks amazing but I like what you have done, everything is so accessible. Great sneak peek, hope I can enter PB this time round, if I have an appropriate stamp. Happy St Andrew's to you too, I think I can say it, being half Scottish........Hugs, Anne x

  3. Hi Kath, Happy St. Andrew's day to you! Ruby x

  4. Hope that wrist is better soon and your persuasive powers work.

  5. Happy St Andrew's Day to you too Kath! Your new layout for your TH supplies looks very organised. Good luck with your powers of persuasion, I'm sure you will charm him x

  6. Happy St Andrews day to you too Kath... Love the new shelves!! I'm sure you will be able to get some ribbon storage! put some of your tasty soup on the stove...The lovely smell should do the trick!! I hope that wrist gets better soon.. Great sneek peek as always... Hugs May x x x

  7. Hope your wrist feels better soon. Happy St.Andrew's day. Hugs to Buddy.

  8. Happy St Andrews Day to you Kath. I hope you manage to get your DIY guru to move out into the garage on a really frosty day. I'm off to make some Cullen Skink for lunch, so I better move. Enjoy your Day. Hugs Rita xx

  9. This would have been my fathers 95th birthday today. Miss him.
    Gosh Kath I though I had a lot of ribbon but I think you beat me.

  10. Oh dear - homeless ribbons - temporarily try a shoe box......or three. They stack quite nicely & if you're really pushed for space they can be stuck under the desk to rest your feet upon (oh- you do need to be midget sized to get them out again but perhaps Buddy could lend a hand).
    Take care Kath & thanks for the tangle go ahead.
    Much love & get well wishes

  11. Happy St Andrew's Day Kath - good luck with getting the ribbon storage sorted out.

  12. I so enjoy visiting your blog! So sorry about your wrist. By now you are wise enough to know that no simple reorg project remains simple! Happy St. Andrew's day!

  13. Happy St Andrews day Kath, get better soon

  14. That storage looks great Kath. On the other hand the storage you have looks a lot better than mine! Good luck with the resident DIY expert, don't think I'd have much luck with mine. Funny how men can do something if it suits them!!

    Hope you're hand keeps improving.

    Happy St Andrew's Day to you too. Needless to say I had to work on what should be a public holiday!

  15. Hi Kath, hope you had a nice St Andrews Day,and your wrist is loads better. That new T.H. storage looks great, surely somebody in GB could make one like it(maybe your DIY man could have a go as they say.)Good luck on that one! Dying to see you PB card tomorrow, have a nice no bumps or scrapes weekend...Trish
