Hi to all my WOYWW friends - and of course anyone else that happens by this way!  I hope you are all having a wonderful day wherever you are in the world.  I am sharing number 2 desk today as that is where the action has been this week.  I have been videoing like crazy and my You Tube Channel is filling up nicely and I am getting quicker and I hope slicker at making videos!!!  I am having a ball.

This is the view you never get to see on camera!!!!  I hope the view on all my videos looks like calm and organised creativity - This is craft mat exit left, right and up!  Where all the stuff is shoved as it is used and no longer required to be in shot!  Actually the only bit that gets on camera is inside the little bits of tape - The tape shows me I am keeping my hands in shot.  The Graphic 45 paper was there to take a shot of a finished set of tags that I videoed the making of so I can share it once a swap is completed.  A bit of Christmas fun I am joining in with over at Tag Tuesday.  Actually I made another video of this weeks music themed tag - I had such fun doing a fast forward film of how I made it.

What do I do with all my tags?  I was putting them on a wall - some of you may remember it was a very pink wall and they didn't look quite right (too much vivid colour didn't make a great display wall) so all the tags I have lovingly made are now in this bag!!!!  They should be on the wall behind my camera but I just haven't gotten around to it yet!  The xylophone tag on the top of the pile is the one I made the fast forward video I was just telling you about (click here if you want to see it! (10 mins of very fast crafting indeed)).  Once I get the tags displayed I think they will become my inspiration wall.

Some of you may notice my Blog Background has changed - something I learnt how to do this week when I also learnt how to alter the background on my You Tube Channel.  By next WOYWW I may manage to do the top bit of my blog (I think it is a banner or is it a header!!!????)

I am looking forward to catching up with you all over a cup of coffee today.  If you are new around here and wonder what I am talking about then follow this link to join in the biggest desk hop in town - hop this way please!!!


  1. Love the xylophone tag!! Lots of great detail in there :)
    Congrats on all the Youtubing - must have a peep to see what you get up to! I think you're very brave putting yourself out there...I'm a proper wuss!!
    Hugs, LLJ '32 xx

  2. I can't watch Youtube at home as my pc won't play pictures properly, I think it's too old, or maybe the broadband line isn't good enough. Still, well done you and lovely to see the behind the scenes shot!! Helen, 8

  8. I'll be popping over to youtube later, after the desk snooping!
    Happy Wednesday,

  9. Haven't ventured into videos and don't think I will in the near future! That said I do love to watch them and will have to go back and check out a few of yours. Love all the stuff around your film area and Poor tags stuffed in a bag! I have done a similar deed and dropped them in an empty drawer. All the time and money and not on display yet...Shame! At least you know what you are doing with yours! Thanks for visiting my desk and leaving such a nice comment. Have a great week! Vickie #3

  10. Thanks for visiting me today, love your Tag Bag. Got your Timmy Tag done yet then? BJ#7

  11. I love the new background Helen and I'm sure the banner/header will be just as fab when you get that done too.
    My own tag's are just sitting in my altered box. It is difficult to know what to do with them, I like your idea of an inspirational wall of them :0) Mo x

  12. How fun is that? Having your own channel. I will have to check that out right away. I am sure it is awesome!!

    I'm sure every studio looks like that behind the scenes! I agree with Vickie! Poor tags stuffed in a bag lol, bet you don't show that on your videos!! I'm liking the butterflies too.

  14. Your area looks very professional for videos! Wow! I barely figured out taking pictures of cards! I'll have to check out your You-tube videos!
    Happy WOYWW!

  15. Wow! Love the set-up!! I've had one go at doing a video - it's still in bits waiting to be edited!!!
    Congrats on the background - it's great! I cheated and got my son to re-do mine! LOL!
    Will be back to check out your videos!!
    Happy WOYWW

  16. Helen you are doing so well with your videos. Well done. It is interesting to see what the room is really like. I do watch craft videos when I have time, and some people are so much better than others at showing how things are done. I have to confess I haven't watched yours yet, but I will when the pre-Christmas rush is over.
    I used a ready made background for my blog which I bought, but had to install myself, and I made my own banner from a photo I took of some of my craft items. I remember I did a lot of cropping and resizing, but I'm not sure I could do it again, so it probably won't get changed any tome soon!
