WOW WOYWW

Time for that little bit of fun and nosiness that is What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday, brainchild of Julia and her Stamping Ground BLOG  - click the link to find out all about how it works and join in the Great Big Workdesk Hop!

My desk is a bit of a dumping ground atm.  I didn't do any crafting yesterday but over the few days before that I was busy with making stuff for a mini cyber crop on Bubbly Funk's forum.  A lot of the regular participants were away on a crafting retreat so those who were left got together and found lots of interesting links and "classes" to share.  On my desk you can see some of the things I made, plus of course the still unfinished concertina minibook which I really must make an effort and do some covers for.  You can check out the individual "makes" on the last few posts I've made.  The post below this one also has the tutorial for the cheque/gift card wallet I promised I'd share, so please have a look at that too.
Anyway, here's my Wednesday Mess for this week - I'll keep the pics small on here, but click on them for a closer look at the disarray!

Just for a laugh, I thought I'd also show you the desk on the other side of our study - this is my hubby's desk - as you can see, we don't share the same mind-set when it comes to desks - why on earth would you have a great big desk nearly the size of a single bed and not actually use the surface for your stuff?  Just look at the multi-coloured mini post it note pads lined up by the in-tray hehehe. 
My computer desk is to the left of his desk.  My Craft Robo sits on the corner of my pc desk and when I need to use it I usually have to shift a pile of papers from in front of it - so I tend to colonise the corner of his desk too
Our study is a lovely light room, as well as the window you can see on the photo there's a bigger window  to the right of my craft desk - it's never in the photos I do of my desk because I'd be taking them right into the light and my desk wouldn't show up.

Anyway, enough of the waffle.  Today I'm going to clear all those finished and half finished projects off the desk and get some cutting and sticking done.
Thanks for visiting, I hope you come by again soon.

Kate said...

There's something not quite right about a hubby with a desk that tidy. I think your space looks very creative.

Great desk. Lots to see and be inspired by. And you have so much room to craft in. I'm not being sarcastic; you can see your cutting mat, so you have room to work! Thanks for sharing.

Oh dear Kathy, you're hubby gets a D- must try harder. Glad to see you are keeping the study in a colourful mess xx

Lisa said...

Hi Kathy, I love it when my craft area is tidy but saying that I find I am much more creative when it's messy. Your hubby's desk must therefore be tidy because he is not as creative as you ;-)
