WOYWW - Wednesday 10/11/10

Another Wednesday has arrived and it's time for another WOYWW.  I managed to visit all blogs involved in the WOYWW but couldn't leave messages on some because either it wouldn't allow or I couldn't even find the bit to post a comment so I apologise for those bloggers.  Click here to have a look at Julia's blog who organises the WOYWW.

Well I had to have a little re-jig of my workstation on Sunday to find homes for my new additions from the NEC.  I didn't buy that much but it didn't fit in where it should.

Here is my desk as it stands.  I haven't closed it for some weeks now.  My husband is very accommodating when it comes to my cardmaking and therefore he doesn't moan when it doesn't get shut up as long as he's got room to do his exercises!!

As requested, here is a close-up of some of the drawers pulled open for you all to have a look at.  They include storage for flowers (need quite a few drawers for these as I love using flowers), my DS tape and ink pads.  Some more drawers will be opened next week for you all to look.

Here is a close-up of the items on my desk.  The orange card is there awaiting going in the post.  The art deco pile is extracts from a magazine waiting to be stuck together into a card.  The lady in the black dress is for a commissioned card for my son's workplace and is from Debbie Moore's new CD Venetian Moments.  In the far corner I have printed out some kingfisher images and patterned backing paper from Joanna Sheen's Jayne Netley Mayhew CD and some plain paper to co-ordinate from Crafty Ann's Digi Shop.  I have also coloured in a stamped kingfisher image with Promarkers - I'm not sure about my colouring in of these but I haven't had much practice in colouring in animals/birds.  I am using these images for two cards - a 50th birthday card and also a commissioned birthday card for my son's workplace.

My last photo shows the desk with the addition of another one of my Keel dogs - this time Willie the Pug - for those of you that watched Eastenders over the years he's a twin for Ethel's Willy!!!

How fantastic, such a wonderful place to work. Thanks for this sneak peak and for stopping on my blog.

Sherry said...

Your desk is very organised Kym and your storage unit is really such a wonderful piece of kit.
I thought your pup was real at first (he isn't is he?) ... oh yes, Ethel's Willy - I remember him well, and Roly of course - not to mention Wellhard!

Thanks for stopping by my desk earlier.

Hey Kym,

It's bad enough that I am running nearly a week late, then I have been plagued with that pesky 503 error all night. Just wanted to drop in and let you know I was here this week. I say it all the time, but I still LOVE that desk and setup. You did so good.
