What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday....


Last week I joined in with WOYWW for the first time, but I was a bit of a wuss and didn't show the worst of it, so most people seemed to think I'm quite tidy.... I'm going to shatter those illusions today!  The first pic is my workdesk that I showed last week - think I need to clear some space so I can actually use it today.

The next pic is of the area generally known as 'the overspill'....



It's shameful isn't it?  I do clear it quite often, but it doesn't take long for it to end up like this again!


From another angle, and you can see where I do my die cutting too.  I'm not (and probably never will be!) ready to show the floor or the other side of the craft room though lol!

We're off to a play centre tonight as my eldest has been invited to a party... I'll not get to talk to anyone though, I'll spend the whole time 'herding' my little one who will want to play in the 'big kids' area with everyone else.  I need to make a tag to go on the present too, I forgot about that.  And hopefully get some more preparation done for the craft shop demo I'm doing on the 2nd Oct... I've never done one before and I'm soooo nervous!  I'm not the most confident person and when they asked me I was so close to turning it down, but finally managed to talk myself into it - fingers crossed it won't be a total disaster!

Lovely craft mess going on there and a fab card too. Err floors... I'm' with you on that one, they are best left unphotographed - not sure I could show my floor anyhow as most if it's covered up with "stuff" [big grin]

A messy desk shows it is used, or so I tell myself when mine is messy. Thanks for the peek. You will do well with your project I am sure. #98

Spillover area? Too funny. You do have a lot of stuff. I suspect it's what keeps you inspired. Glad to see you came back to us, too. Happy WOYWW from #2.

Neet said...

I love it - and you made me smile. Takes courage to show a mess sometimes doesn't it. I have those tubs from the "Svedish company" hanging in my room - great aren't they. #45

Julia Dunnit said...

Ah, now I feel at home and less intimidated by you! Well done and thanks for showing the real you! I heard a speech by Stacy Julian of Big Picture Scrapbooking once - she said 'think the power of the THIRD thought when asked to do something new: 1 - I can't. 2 - I might be able to. 3. I can..I will/I wish I had.....it will be fine - remember, everyone just wants to chat and share ideas!

Candace said...

I thought you said you were showing the worst of it????

In crafting there is no mess just creativity!

Hugs Candace
