clue: noun

Something that serves to guide or direct in the solution of a problem or mystery


Well I changed WOYWD to WOYCASF....lol translation: What's On Your Couch And Surrounding Floor! HA! And for anyone that doesn't have a clue what I'm talking about, pop on over to Julia's blog, Stamping Ground and peek into a couple hundred crafter's rooms across the globe, rather exciting eh? But I have changed it up a bit today as I am purging the sticker stash. I find that not only am I using less of them ( my Cricut has replaced a lot of sticker buying, now I'm cartridge buying ).But I also have tons of sheets; that I used what I liked and then tossed the remaining sheet into my stash. Now why do we do that? So I brought out my sticker storage into the den so that I can sit comfortably in front of the TV and work on purging. I have 4 piles to separate into. 1. Ones that I am keeping. 2. Ones that need to be trashed as they got messed up while being in the eternal storage of the damned. 3. Ones that are brand new and will be given away on the blog...hint hint and 4. see the box? It is being filled with sticker remnants to be placed on the trade table at a crop I am attending at the end of the month!

Other confession: You can see the piece of gym equipment that holds my laptop when not in use and the crackers that I feed to the squirrels. I need to stop putting things on the equipment and start putting my butt on it instead! yeah yeah....I know...
Well I'm off and about to run some errands, we are expecting some rain so I want to get them done before it rains on my head. I am finally going to get the book from the library that I have been waiting forever for, I was placed on the waiting list as 89th, so you can tell it's popular. It's Janet Evanovich's Explosive Eighteen! Anyone seen the One For The Money? It just came out and we are planning on seeing it next week, I can't wait although the movies never seem as good as your imagination when you read it!
So ta dah my voyeurs across the lake and beyond. I hope each one of you has a fantastic day!! When I come back I'm settling back onto that same couch and in between purging the stash I will be checking out your rooms too! ;) Oh and working on that gym equipment too ::rolling eyes::...sure, that's what I'm going to do...promise...::cough cough::....

Looooved your confessions, this one particularly: "the piece of gym equipment that holds my laptop when not in use". Can I just ask - did you mean when the laptop was not in use or the gym equipment??? I know what it would be in my case lol :)!. Thanks for stopping by and I'm waving hi back from OX, UK :)) xx

Love the view of your couchdeskfloor. Everyone needs one of those.
My gym equipment comes out when my friend call with her little girl who uses it as a horse for her to ride. I need to get using it when I return to the UK.

I love your computer stand...I had a treadmill I repurposed as a cloths hanger. Note I said had. Isn't organizing fun. It's like Christmas, without the cookies! Thanks for the heads up on the ball of twine...I'm going to go have a look at the site.

Looks to me like your gym equipment is quite happy as a laptop holder! Good idea to have a trade table at a crop. Hope you didn't gt wet earlier!

okienurse said...

I have tons of punches a cricut, a big shot with a ton of dies and I still hang on to my stickers...can you tell me why? I need to sell them and make room for all the other stuff that is crowding the floor in the room of stash! I am saying thank you to my followers and giving away some blog candy this month so come visit my blog for a chance to win! Thanks for sharing and have a creative week. Vickie #90

I think us crafters tend to take our little creativeness wherever we can, hee hee, I sometimes cover the floor in the lounge so I can watch TV, Thanks for sharing, Happy Crafting, Sue xx

Its good to have a clear out but its so hard to let things go isn't it?! Enjoy your purging.

Mary Ann said...

Hi:) Just visiting from WOYWW. Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a comment.

Sherry Edwards said...

What an amusing blog post. Your crafting space this week looks lovely and comfy - I think you've put that piece of gym equipment to the best possible use - after all, you get enough excercise running around avoiding the rain - right!
Hope you managed to get the book you were after.

Thanks for coming to visit my desk already (number 139 for your records)

Waving right back at you from a chilly but very sunny England xx

mommyle said...

I love your gym piece! I have one of those too. It is currently housing a couple of jackets and a hat!!! I keep working on it, though... Working on getting someone else to take it!!!!

Have a wonderful week! Love your card, and I can't wait to see more!

I plan to see One for the Money tomorrow night. I recently finished Explosive Eighteen. I work at a school and our waiting lists are much shorter than the public library (and you can usually bully the staff member who has the book before you into reading faster). Great job on sorting out sticker stash! I know what you mean by stickers getting ruined in the eternal storage of the damned. I have a bit of that in my house too. Exercise is bad for you--I torn my Achilles tendon doing aerobics and lost my gallbladder in a bicycle accident. That exercise stuff is DANGEROUS!

Craftychris said...

I hope you finished your sorting and are now sticker tidy!! A good sort out is very theraputic I find. Take care xx

ikki said...

Hi your sofa looks like mine! Enjoy your week and thanks for visiting the cupboard. ikki

Barb King said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog! Now you've inspired me to go through my sticker stash, I think I will give them to the teachers at the school I work at.

Good for you for sorting out your sticker stash! I hope you are almost finished ... and then can come to my house and sort out my stash too! I don't have stickers but lots of other things that need sorting!
xoxo Karen

Sue Althouse said...

Love your new title! Good luck with getting those stickers organized, that's a big job! Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment! Sue #142

SueH said...

Lol to WOYCASF….that’s so funny.

Good luck with the sorting out. I keep saying that I should find some time to go through all of my stash but I start and then find something that I want to play with and get distracted.

Love the way you use your exercise equipment too. You’re a gal after my own heat because the tread mill in my bedroom is more often used as a clothes horse than what it is meant for.

Happy Crafting!
