[info]dune_drd asked to see:

The place where you do your crafting!


Ta da!

My workspace

Lookit me and my fancypants panoramic photomagraphy! You really an get an app for everything on the iPhone. (You will need to click through to Flickr to see it full sized.)

One of the advantages of having a slightly bigger home is that you don't have to work on the living room floor now. I have a wall of the spare room dedicated to my hobbies. The desk was £20 from IKEA (yes it's a kids one, but it does me fine), the shelving is recycled from the drinks 'cabinet' in the old house and every shelf of that bookcase has four rows of books on it. The little metal filing cabinet was a £25 bargain from IKEA and all the storage boxes are full of beads.

All my 'dangerous' stuff (like my torches and safety pickle) are on the converted spice racks on the left hand side.

The desk is set up for resin work in the picture ad you can see the stuff that's setting on the table, soon to be on sale on the internet. (I just need a name for my shop. Pah.)

The red picture on the wall is of Ex-Cheddar's feet when she was about 3 months old. Her first craft piece. And there's a bunch of [profile] morbid_spark's crocheted grapes in the picture too

All my glass cutting kit is on top of the bookcase along with my first fascinator, which, even if I do say so myself, looked awesome. (I must and a wedding photo to show it off.)

I have a lot of stuff. :/

[info]chicklet73 asked:

I should love to see a photo of your favorite coffee/tea mug.



This is my work mug, an Olly Moss original based on his Threadless T-shirt (that I was bought when I first announced the Oncoming Cheddar. Always goes down well in meetings. Especially with the big boss


And this s my home mug, a cafepress original of one of my photos. I've had this mug since 2005 and it's starting to look quite battered. But I'll love it and use it daily until I inevitably drop it or the handle falls off.

[info]spiralsheep asked to see
Your doormat or the first thing a visitor to your home would see (temporary items, e.g. toys abandoned by ex-Cheddar, count for the purpose of a photo).




This is my front door. We have a couple of silver birches round by us so there's always a lot of dead leaves getting blown into the corner of the porch. I've not gotten around to cleaning them up yet. The red watering can was left by the old owners but it's very useful for watering the flowers out the front.

(If you want to request a photo the original post is here.)

[info]sal101010 asked to see my living room with either Bilbo or Ex-Cheddar in it. Bilbo was out but you do get the bonus of His Lordship's feet.

It's not usually this tidy, but we (the baby and I) have a tidy up session before Waybaloo, it's a before-bedtime rule.

Ask me to take a picture of any aspect of my life that you're interested in/curious about. It can be anything from the house I live in to my favorite shoes. Leave your choice here as a comment, and I will reciprocate by taking the pictures and posting them as an entry.

Leave a ONE WORD comment that you think best describes me. It can only be one word. No more than one word. Then copy & paste this post to your own journal (if you want to!) so I can leave a word about you.

You comment and are given five words or things the OP associates with you, you come back to your journal and write about them.

The BBC allegedly believes most people will have only read 6 of the 100 books here:

How do your reading habits stack up? [bold those books you've read in their entirety, italicize the ones you started but didn't finish]

my book list )

So 40 of those I've read.

This meme has made me realise that it's time for a massive clear out of my userpics.
