Happy Clappy WOYWW!

I'm afraid I don't have a piccie of my desk to show you today. It's so boring at the moment - just covered in piles and piles of books and Christmas stuff, I'm trying to make it look at least a little bit less shambolic before Christmas day - don't know who I'm trying to kid.

I do however have...

*pause for dramatic effect*

*Cue fanfare*

The 'before' pics of what will be my stu-stu-studio! (No I will never tire of chanting that in my head!)

To give you an idea of the scale/size of the place, that black desk in the right hand corner is 6 foot long... it is black honest Guv - it's just covered in 6 inches of dust at the mo!

This is the window that Craig reckons he is boarding up - for you see, it opens up into his office ;) Whereas I'm thinking he knows I'm a tea addict and will keep him well supplied so the boarding up will never happen.

As you can see - LOTS of work in the New Year but I still get very excited whenever I see it! I'm well impressed how light it is in there too considering there are no actual windows to the outside. I'm looking at that as no distractions. But indeed it is very light in there.

What do you reckon? Nice sized space methinks. Am going to go from cramped up in the dining room to a whole mahoosive room of my own! Woohoo!

Right, am running late tonight so will get the dinner on the go (tummy is a rumbling!) and then will be popping by your desks. Want to play along? Then surrender your soul to our esteemed leader Julia, just remember to leave a linky so we can all find you .

A very Merry Christmas to all WOYWWers... The regular rabble will get a Merry Christmas later.

Thanks for stopping by :)

*Editing to add* The room is in the unit that Craig rents. It's literally a 5 minute walk from our house - and yes Craig hopes this is the push I need to start selling - he is self employed himself so can help me with that side of things. It's a confidence thing really - I've been using the lack of space as an excuse.


  1. I'm lovin' your space! so jealous I want a big room:( looks like fun though!

  2. I love the new room. Is it in the house or away from the house? Are you going into business?

  3. This is so amazing and I am so jealous!! Imagine all the ways you could decorate it and all the space you have for making things and ooooh I'm excited for you lol. As Vivienne said, you could totally go into business. Keep us posted xxx
