Last WOYWW for April

Wednesday is the day we brave souls take a deep breath and point our cameras in the direction of our craft spaces - then post the resulting photos on our blogs for all to see.  It's all Julia's fault  (click HERE for all the info) and if you know all about it and still haven't joined in then you're just a great big wuss (yes, I'm looking at you, Joanne hehehe).
 

 Fairly tidy today, except for the tiny paper scraps as I was cutting out some flowers from a sheet of Bo Bunny paper yesterday afternoon and haven't cleared the mess yet.
They are for the card which is also here, but I'm actually sure where I'm going with all these bits yet, I call it "organic card making" hehe, sometimes it works, sometimes it's in the bin....
Blu-tacked to my daylight lamp are the flowers I made the other week and the flocked bird I made ages ago - I thought they'd be less likely to be squished - and you never know, they may even get used.
There are a few other works in progress on there today but I've nothing finished and ready to show - so I thought I'd add a close up of my little shelves - it's actually an old spice rack, but it's just right for all the pots of eyelets, brads and other small things.  The blue caddy was a Christmas pressie from Karen at Charmed Cards and Crafts and is now stuffed with various tools that were always difficult to find a home for before (so thank you Karen ;))
The drawers to the left I've shown before, they hold (top to bottom) yet more flowers (there's a surprise), some of my chipboard collection, ribbon odds and ends and the most regularly used punches.  On top of the drawers is a plastic box holding border punches and MS punches as they won't fit in the drawer.  The round tub on the right is for desk top rubbish - I even use it sometimes...., the one to the left holds loads of little binder clips and mini bulldog clips which I seem to use ALL the time!  I don't know how I managed without them!

That's it for today, I'll see if I can get something finished to put on here tomorrow!
No doubt I'll be still catching up on all the workspaces next Tuesday as usual, but do visit Julia's and find out all about WOYWW - it would be great if you'd join in too.

My real problem is that my desk looks no different from one week to the next - the stuff literally just stays in the same big heap! Maybe I'll join after I've had the next big clean up so you can see how long it takes to get to precarious tower stage!

Really love all the little bottles of yumminess on the shelves.
