WOYWW - Wednesday 16 November 2010

Another What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday (WOYWW) has arrived.  It's amazing how quickly the weeks seem to be flying by at the moment.  This is going to be my fifth week - that's unbelievable.  I've had so much fun looking at other people's crafting areas and have also been contacted by a number of crafters who are sending me some crafting items to help me with my charity work.  Thank you to those kind people.  Anything I receive as donations, win in challenges or win in blog candy I put to good use for my charity work.

The last week has seen me having to finish off some commissioned cards and two that I know of have been well received so that's a relief.


Yet again, the cupboard hasn't been shut up all week - well it saves wear and tear on putting the table up-and-down and that's my excuse!!!  I had to have a shuffle around with things after my NEC visit and I am getting used to where new homes are for some things.  Scamp the Keel Schnauzer has come to say "hello" to everyone this week.  This dog is terrible - you just need to look at him and his fur gets messy and he needs a brush.


On my desk are various images from Debbie Moore's Venetian Moments CD as I need to make a card for someone at work.  The Promarkers/Copics are out as I also edge the sides of cut images to exclude that white edge.  I've done this since I made cards for Create and Craft/Ideal World for the My Craft Studio CDs.  There's also a Digi Doodles image I coloured in for their challenge last week and an embossed piece of card to match but I haven't had chance to make it into a card so it will save for another time.


Here I have all-but pulled out two of the three drawers housing my rubber stamps.  It's not many compared to a lot of people but they give me a good selection when I choose to do some stamping - but I'm always on the look-out for bargains to get more.  I followed a friends tip of keeping them in video cases and bought 20 thinking that was plenty but I ran out so I've used some of the plastic/velcro pockets that came with the Workstation that I hadn't used, like I've done with the Sweet Pea stamps, that I've pulled out on top to show you.  I've pushed it all back into line as I might not close it down at nights but I hate to see the drawers sticking out and looking a mess.

Such a lovely workspace Kym.

Diane said...

Thanks for your visit Kym...your craft cupboard looks amazing!

Ciara said...

I wonder if DVD cases would be any good for storing your stamps? They'd take up less space that video ones.

It's funny what you said about Scamp, Ellie my real Schnauzer gets dirty very quickly too and I had to give her a bath just yesterday!!

Too right Kym, don't want to wear the unit out now do we? Love the little doggie too, I always edge my cut outs too so there's no stark white line.

I sure like your excuse for not putting your table away, Kym. You have tons of storage. I didn't realize how much until I saw that photo. Sorry I'm so late getting here. You would think since I had most of my obligations out of the way, I would have freed up a bit more computer time. Unfortunately, what happened was, I was so far behind, I became overwhelmed. Will try to do better this week.
