WOYWW - Wednesday 3-11-10

Well another week has come around and it's time for another What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday (WOYWW).  Click here to have a look at Julia's blog for more details.  I managed to get to virtually all other blogs - bar a few I just couldn't get into and one that wouldn't allow me to see the post comment box ahhhhhhhhhhh.  It's so amazing to see how all our craft areas differ.


Well, my desk is looking quite tidy as a customer is coming to pick up some cards I have made for her and her daughter so I've had a massive tidy up.  I had two packages arrive yesterday and they are waiting to be sorted - one is some lovely images from Lynn who lives in Australia and the Just Rite stamps, paper pad and flowers are from winning in a Blog Hop recently.  I shall put all these to good use for my cards for charity so it means a lot to get these.  Some of my Christmas stamps have made their way onto my desk as I must think about some Christmas cards.  I'm not really in the mood for them at the moment but it has to be done.  I was also naughty yesterday evening as I had kept seeing some new Kenny K images and as they were on offer it would have been rude to refuse wouldn't it.  I have also coloured in another Just Inklined image of a cute little monkey - he just needs making into a card.


For those of you that have asked, I have pulled out one of the drawers for you to see.  This is my mostly used drawer.  Back on the 1 January 2010 I made a New Year's Resolution to use up all my paper in 2010 that I had bought, been given or won and I am still doing this.  The only paper I have printed off is for Design Team cards and also commissioned cards.  I have to admit now I am getting very "itchy fingered" as I have seen so many nice papers to buy or to download but I am determined to finish what I started.  It hasn't been an easy task to set but it has certainly made me diminish the stocks I had.  A great deal I had been given by people as they had bought and not used and gave me for my charity work.  I feel better that I have put their items to use now instead of it just sitting in a drawer.

Also on my desk is a buy for today - the new Creativity magazine.  It costs £2.50 and always comes with a freebie on the front and for this edition it's a little set of stamps and the character is so cute.  There are some very good items to read in here and also competitions to enter - fab for £2.50!!!  Lastly two more fur babies have made their way onto the desk - a little mummy and baby that I bought myself for my birthday recently.

Hope you've enjoyed having a look at my work area.

You do look incredibly organised! I would love to use up my papers, but there always seem to some in each stack that I just don't get on with!

Love the busy desk and the cute little fur babies. I see you have House Mouse stamps, I'm a big fan too. I like your resolve for using up the paper, not sure I could do that! Who am I kidding, I know I can't, I bought a new Christmas pad just this week!!!

Hugs

kayc said...

What an amazing craft space you have there. I should really use some of my paper too. But I keep seeing new papers and I have to have them. Is it an addiction. Thank you for becoming a follower! Kathleen x

karen said...

Awww, those Rottweilers are so beautiful! And yay for the House Mouse stamps, they are uber-cute!
Lovely space! Thanks for the peek!

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

Your desk still looks tidy. And of course, I still love your new craft space. Good for you for keeping your New Year's resolution about not buying more paper. Just think how much money you saved and how much space you've made. Like you the C-word still isn't in my craft vocabulary. Happy belated from #1 who feels like # last.
