I can't believe its been a week since I blogged. I'm afraid life got in the way. Thank you so much for all your wonderful comments asking how my daughter is. When I blogged last week I made light of her ear infection. This is because I was a bit upset. Shannon is 14 and has had ear infections most of the time for 3 years, and recently we got to see the ENT specialist, who wanted us to contact him when it got bad again (the last one was treated over the two week christmas period). When I contacted him (last Wednesday) we had to go straight to hospital were bless her she had a really painful shringing. Since then she has had to go almost every other day to have the pus sucked out. The last was today and they are going to now leave it for two weeks to see how much it produces. So I have spent the last week going to hospital, working in between and also having to stay with Shannon all the time as she has lost her balance (its finally almost back) and of course Adrian doesn't come back for another week. So no crafting or blogging for me over that period. I did do some yesterday as I suddenly remembered my friend ordering two cards to be picked up last night so I was in a bit of a panic. I assure you I took my picture yesterday on WOYWW day. 

I was asked what the blue storage on the right of the table was so I took a closer picture (on the left), this is where I keep all my embellishments, gems etc.   The picture on the right is another pic of when my dear partner dropped it while putting me another shelf up. I had just finished putting everything by colour, which took weeks, then that happened, thank goodness most of it dropped into colour groups LOL.

I would like to say a big thank you for everyone who has visited and all those that have given me advice through emails just to let you know I understood them and I'm working on them.  I'd like to say I'm sorry as I didn't get to visit everyone this last week because of circumstances and I will try harder this week.  Going to post the cards I did for my mate over the next few days.  If your wondering what WOYWW is all about visit Julia's Blog, its where we all get to share our craft spaces and get to see everyone crafty goodies.  Right I'm off now to put my daughters nasty sprays in her ear (im not very popular at these times lol). 
Oops meant to say, I didn't miss a week of WOYWW I just managed to put the wrong week (84) in last week DOH!!!.

OMGoodness Kezzy.

I was getting worried about you. Glad to hear that Shannon is doing a little better. Can't even imagine the pain she must be in or how terrible it is to have vertigo!

Your workspace looks crafty as ever...big hugs Marjo

Oh there is just something so nice about seeing embellishments in colour groups, loving those draws.
I hope something can be sorted for your daughter, the poor thing.
Thanks for visiting me,

Kezzy I don 't know how you have he time to make even one card, let alone float around the desks on WOYWW! Really - this part of blogging is meant to be fun - absolutely NO STRESS about whether you can or can't visit other desks, we're just happy to have you take part. Tell your poor baby gal that it does get better - Mine is 17 and just had 6 earache/pus free months in a row - hurrah! A real record...after all the stress and pain, they now think she's 'grown out of it'. Good luck.

Yes, those drawers look wonderful. So many many possibilties. Have a great week.

Hope your daughter is feeling a little more human now, with her ear problems. Ear infections are so painful, and debilitating. Our son had constant infections and was almost completely deaf in one ear until he was six. Then we managed to get him into hospital to have his ears cleaned out and grommets putting in. The difference in his hearing was unbelievable just ovenight. He had 12 months when he could not swim, then he was back in the water (with soft ear plugs and a hat) and actually became a competitive swimmer. He has had very little trouble since then. I hope something similar happens for your daughter.

Forgot to say, what a nightmare to have all those drawers upset just after you sorted them. I wonder what you said.....

Awesome storage! And I've had that happen before with my beads, it was a disaster!! Almost could have cried because it took me forever to color coordinate everything

I have blog candy on my blog if you would like to take a peek!

Goodness, what a lot of embellishments but I love how you store them. My hubby has drawers like this in his shed full of stuff I don't understand, maybe I should ask him to get some for me!
Thanks for the close up photos.
