WOYWW - New Storage

Goodness me, ANOTHER Wednesday? That must mean ANOTHER WOYWW. What does the Acronym stand for? What's on Your Workspace Wednesday, which is a nosey crafters' delight, hosted by Julia at Stamping Ground

So if you've come to visit the bears today, our December bloggerations are all about the desk.

This week, we have new storage....

Fab new colouring pen storage, for WAY less than half the price of the widely advertised storage we had coveted, but were not likely to be able to afford unless Podgy went out and sold his furry soul! These do not have the individual pen slots that the more expensive versions offer, but are pawfect for the bears' needs.

We've moved the Cricut to above the (still undecorated) MDF storage drawers, to make room for the pen cubes.

Now that we've sorted the pens into colour order, and they are on display, we're hoping to actually achieve some colouring, starting with this lovely stamped image.

Goodness, that was a bit of a short post for the bears wasn't it? Whatever happened to our usual waffle?

Ooh, before we go though, don't forget our two competitions

Guess How Many Bears (with prize -woo!) is Right here

And our usual monthly, literary based challenge can be found just here

With love from the bears.


  1. Yo bears! How are you today? Love that pen storage - I've been umming and ahing about getting some - I think I just might. Happy Wednesday fronm the Smiley Pot:o)

  2. Lovely pen boxes - and that's a beautiful image... can't wait to see it all coloured in! And you don't need to spend loads on storage - you can make it look a million dollars yourself (come on, get that chest of drawers going!)... Happy WOYWW bears!

  4. Oooh great pen storage and I love the new drawers !! How tidy everything is :-)

  5. Happy WOYWW. I have missed my Wednesday tour around craft rooms/desks/floors, so despite not being able to join in this week again (we have had a week in Spain and didn't get back until late last night), I am having a bit of a snoop around my favourite blogs. Loving the pen storage - and those drawers are just aching to be 'altered'. I can't wait to see piccies of your furry paws colouring in! Ali x

  6. Hope the beary paws have fun with their colouring in. Thought I'd been a follower for ages but it seems my name has gone? How wierd.....this bear of little brain must have clicked the wrong button :-)

  16. Well Bears - how neat & tidy are you today !! I have that stamp but haven't had time to colour one in yet either - so many ideas, so little time !! Thanks for calling by earlier !
    Enjoying your daily bloggerations ! Ali #9 xx

  17. That is so tidy! Puts me to shame but I a glad to find unpainted drawers in your room. Phew! Thought I was the only one - maybe one day I will do them.
    Spencer (my M&S bear) is ready for his trip to the cold Christmas Markets. he will be putting in an appearance at some time over the next week.
    Take care
    Hugs, Neet 46 xx

  18. I soooooo need to tidy that looks beautiful and I love the stamp :)

  19. Hellow bears! I love your new pen storage - I love that it's clear so you can see them all clearly, and all the lovely colours.

    Thanks for your visit to my blog. I think with a bit of team work and a helping paw here and there, together you'd manage to lift and use an ATG like mine lol! It is much more economical to use than those little tape things and it feels really businesslike in use too! Glad you like my album. I've pretty well finished page 1 now and have done a post about it.

    Happy belated WOYWW,
