Hi WOYWWers, Followers and All,
Wednesday really has crept up on me this week ... it seems like only yesterday it was the weekend. And being Wednesday it's time to reveal my desk in all it's glory. But before I do I'd like to welcome my newest follower and encourager, Diana ... thank you for joining me here. I hope you continue to pop in whenever you can and perhaps even leave the occasional comment - always appreciated :)
Okay, here's the state of my desk today for your delectation.
Oh my, where do I begin!!! This is a long view in the other direction showing a teensy weensy glimpse of the other worktop in the top right corner ... you can even just spot my wastepaper basket from this angle.
To the front is a couple of layouts I'm working on. One just needs the journaling added - the notes for it are in the tiny notebook by the saucer. And the saucer? I used it as a circle template to cut the photo that is peaking out from under the top layout. The stuff that's lying all around the layouts - inks, punches, alphas, pens, adhesives, etc. - just the materials used this session ... you'd think it was a week's worth of mess. The desk was immaculate before I started scrapping, honest!!
In fact, this is the first actual crafting I've found time for in several days. The reason being that I've been sorting stash, The red basket on right edge of the desk is testimony to that. It's intended to be the temporary resting place for any newly acquired goodies but in practice it was piled high with stuff that shouldn't have been there. No more! What's in there should be there and everything has been put where is ought to be :))
It all started with me deciding, as a result of this course I'm doing - scroll down to see more - that the way I had the 12x12 paper organised was not suiting me at all. And once I had sorted that out I was on a roll, 12x12 cardstock, A4 paper and cardstock, 6x6 paper, it all got sorted. Thanks to those of you who commented with helpful tips. Here's just one shelf ...
... is that not a thing of beauty? :)
I opted to organise by colour rather than by maker as before ... it just seemed to make selection a whole lot easier.
Admittedly, I did use up all the EM's labeling tape so a quick reorder was necessary, but it has been so worth it. I rediscovered some lovely sheets of paper I had all but forgotten, including one of the pretty papers on my workdesk right now.
I did promise myself that I would be brief this week but I've rambled on again ... must do better next week. And if you have wandered in from Mars/Venus and don't know what WOYWW is all about, do pop over to Julia's at the Stamping Ground where you will find an explanation and invitation to join in the fun. We show ours, so all you have to do is show yours :))
Once again, it's the wee small hours so I'm off to bed for now. I'll join you all later and can't wait to see what you've been up to.
Take care everyone, have a great WOYWW and happy crafting,
