WOYWW 240!

. . . another year begins.

I'm in the midst of sorting and purging my room of stash. Today I was sorting dies, specifically, Nesties. I keep them in CD/DVD cases and had kept the two sizes in separate boxes until now. I've reduced my collection to five 3 liter storage boxes and combined all of the CD/DVD cases. Keeping them all together means I can sort them alphabetically. A little OCD but it works for me.

I did manage a little bit of craftiness tho, reworked my Florida snowflake. It still has a ways to go before it's finished.

Leave your WOYWW number and I'll do my best to pay a return visit. My apologies for not getting 'round to all who visited me last week. It was a rather unsettling week at my place.

But it's a New Year and times will get better!

Warm hugs to all.

  1. Golly - that's some fearsome organisational skills going on there! And you're allowed to be as OCD as you like in how you arrange your stash, I'd say.

    The beaded snowflake is so pretty... looking forward to seeing how it progresses.

    Good luck with the purge (sorry to make it harder!).

  2. Your die collection looks like mine! They are definitely my weakness. Love to visit this morning. Hope you have a great rest of the week!

  3. you are so organized, I need you at my house!

  4. I'm so jealous of your organizing. The beaded snowflake is so pretty. Can't wait to see it finished.
    Happy Wednesday. LisaDV#79

  5. Happy Wednesday Nan,
    Clever idea for storing Nesties! I don't have many, but I think I'll give this a try.

    Thanks for sharing, by the way LOVE the beaded snowflake.

  6. Hi Nan - you're looking so organised! Love the CD case idea, it appeals to my OCD monster :o)
    That snowflake is SO pretty - what are you going to do with it when it's finished?
    Happy crafting! Annie #41

  7. Hello again and have to say Im so glad I have not seen any Flordia snow flakes while we have been here. Its a wounder we haven't. lol Any way thanks for letting me peek around again and bright blessings to you and yours. Roberta 47

  8. Hi Nan
    the OCD sure gets us crafters doesn't it. I have been sorting in my craft room and heard myself mutter OCD.
    Have a great WOYWW today and enjoy the rest of your week

  9. Thats a lot of Nesties! Love the Really Useful Boxes, Hubby says I've got a fetish for them, lol. Have a great week, Hugs Shaz #93xx

  10. Oh, Nan, you've made my OCD heart skip a beat with that beautiful display of organization!! I love how your snowflake is coming along, too!! Happy WOYWW and have a wonderful week! (I love your positive attitude and hope things settle down there.) Hugs, Darnell

  11. Hi Nan,

    I could only dream of being that organized! My heart skips a beat in envy.

    Hmm, you asked if I've filed down the edges of the bottle caps. I hadn't thought of that. I'm going to flatten them a bit and I have an oval jump ring to put between the ear wire and the bottle cap. I'll be experimenting with other bottle caps before I make these. Thanks for the suggestion and I'll keep you posted!

    Happy WOYWW
    Peace, Kay (42)

  12. what a great collection and good idea for storage I'm using A4 magnetic sheets but isn't practical as they slip and I cant see anything easily I like this and may try it myself although have a long way to go before i could fill 5 storage containers!!... loving the snowflake too lovely colours hope you have good week ahead crafty hugs Andrea#19

  13. Since I'm all about organization, I adore that you have shown how you are paring down and purging. Seems it's that time of year, too.

    I saw even your neck of the woods was getting a cold spell, so I hope you have a way to heat your home. I know many in FL don't have central heat in their homes. Happy WOYWW from #5.

  14. Hi Nan, thanks for stopping by. I found some youtube videos for finishing off and the other stitch. Very easy and when I saw it I remembered! :-) However, when I finished off my project tonight the last loop is too long. So something went wrong. Ah well. I'll fix it somehow when I "sew" the end into the scarf. Love your Florida snowflake! Brigita #80

  15. Wow, you have a LOT of dies. Great organizing, too.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier and for the nice comments.

    Happy Woyww,

  16. Hi Nan,
    Thanks so much for popping over...not sure if going blind, but you dont seem to have link to Julia! That's the second blog in row and so wont leave number till find blog with one on it..
    I had sleep last night and it wipes my hard drive see and I cant remember!!:D.. mm.. maybe am blind!

    Wow need you at my place, a little OCD would not go astray,

    May God bless you in 2014 Shaz in Oz.x
    # who cant member her number think it is 17, or 22 or sum'it.

  17. A little OCD works for me Nan :-) I am one very frustrated sewing lady at the mo cos everytime I have a job to do I have to search my boxes to find what I need! I like a place for everything and everything in it's place...can't wait to get moved now! :-)

  18. Oh dear, Nan, sorry to hear last week was unsettling. Now thinking lots of things.
    Love how you have been tidying and if the die cut system works for you then it. Is the right one.
    Thinking of you and sending love
    Neet xx

  19. That is a clever idea for storing dies, our dvd boxes have a lump in the middle that is not removable so it doesn't work here. Now that is one really pretty Florida Snowflake, I don't understand the Florida part though, can you explain.

  20. Well done on organizing all of that! I am drooling over that many dies!
    Happy WOYWW!

  21. Hi Nan. Oh my goodness - do you fancy a break here in North Wales to bring order out of my chaos??? SO neat and tidy - it's how I'd lIKE to be - but never manage it!
    Have a great week.

  22. Hey Nan, love what you've done with the dies..and just so you know there is nothing at all wrong with a little OCD, it works well for me too... glad to see some one is suffering from containeritis.... LOL
    Have a fabulous week and Happy Crafting

  23. Well it only took me to Sunday to get here... LOL. I've been playing in the craft room instead of computing. Your die organization looks GREAT! And that beaded snowflake is beautiful... love the vintage looking colors of it! Have a great week!

  24. WOW, look at all your nesties. You look more organized that
