WOYWW and altered chalk board

Good morning all,had a good sleep last night thanks to attending a course for work last night and making me stay up late so hence i did some sorting in my craft room to unwind and did not make it to my bed til later than normal :)
Going to add this blog entry to WOYWW as finding it already a bit addictive.
Here is my desk as of late last night and its very similar this morning to be honest as after seeing all your desks last week and comments on how tidy i am,thought i should rebel a bit but boy is it hard......lol
But i still craft tidy and as one blogger rightly spotted i am a bit OCD. Well been tackling a tag album and was getting rather frustrated with the instructions so have put it away and decided to organise my stamps instead. On the left is my new organiser(coloured card cut out for sections and used the cricut to cut tabs) and then had cut a load of white card blanks which i add a stamped image to. The purple drawer is my christmas stamps drawer which is rather full. You can see some of my fave penny black stamps. Am writing on the backs of card,name of stamp,maker and where its stored.And if you are wondering that little black film canister is my travel pot for wipes and yes you can squeeze 3 in a push.  The silver case holds all my promarkers and there are stamps in the clear boxes.
And this is my finished altered chalk board which hangs just out of sight above my desk,it was a bargain from a shopping trip and you can see the items i brought here.
Thanks so much for all the lovely comments on my blog last week and i have returned them all and managed to get around quite a few extra too and hope to do the same this week. So if you want to find out what WOYWW means hop on over to Julia's blog but beware you might be a while!

  5. I understand the neat and tidy thing because I'm the same - I like to make a mess, but like to clear it up before the next session - although you wouldn't think so from what I've shown today! (Hazel, WOYWW #5) x

  9. Still far too tidy ha ha. Think I have OCD but the kind that means you are compulsive about buying more craft stash.
    Love your little Yorkie - ours is a Yorkie cross and so much fun.

  13. There's nothing wrong with being a bit OCD - I'm the same, just can't work in a mess.

  17. I wish I could have a neat and tidy desk like that. I found though after some heavy creative hootenany, I get what I call the "nesting urge". Everything HAS to be put away and in its place. When I'm in the throws of creative birth process forgettaboutit... the creative fodder flies! Love the chalkboard!! - Warmly, Tracy #93

  18. Oh How I wish I could be a little bit OCD, my craft room is a total mess, I should be more organised, then wouldn't spend so much time searching for stuff.
    Love the little blackboard too.

  20. It IS a lovely tidy workspace! I'm envious! Do you know you can "colour" that nice silver case using alcohol inks? If you wanted too, that is. Happy WOYWW!

  22. Hi Kay and welcome to WOYWW I missed last week so didn't meet you then, Sam looks adorable. Lots of lovely new crafting goodies from your trip out with hubby, I used to love looking in the charity shops but can't manage it now, a great bargain with the charms. I like organising my craft stuff too 'don't tell anyone' lol although haven't organised all my stamps yet though. Hope you have a great day Lou x

  25. Wow looks like you're busy organising all of those stamps! Good storage ideas. I haven't got enough stamps to need organising yet but I'm working on that :o) Love the chalk board, looks like you picked quite a few goodies up, we all love new stash!! :o) x

  26. Nothing wrong with being tidy. I find it hard to work if it is too messed up but I often do. Love the idea for the baby wipes. Thanks for the tip!

    Thanks for sharing and commenting on my blog. Hugs, Neet 19 xx

  27. Lovely tidy workspace Kay! Well done keeping it up! I'm hopeless. Just one look, and it is chaos!! Love your chalk board with the friendly little spider and all the gorgeous buttons!

    Thanks for visiting my blog. I used to think Inkscape was totally impossible and I more or less gave up on it, till I went on the Black Cat forum and they gave me the confidence to try again. It's an awesome program, and what's more, it's FREE!!!

    Happy belated WOYWW,
    Shoshi

  30. As you now know Kay, one entry on WOYWW and it’s the start of a long slippery slope. I know it sounds stilly but I feel sad if I miss it, even for just one week……..what are we crafters like!

    Great desk this week but if that’s you rebelling well what can I say….my desk isn’t even as tidy as that on a good day, Lol!

    Thanks for stopping by.
    Happy Crafting!

  31. Thanks for stopping by my blog :) Love your desk, and your stamp organizer! I definately need to find a way to organize my stamps, they're all in bins thus they hardly get used because I'm too lazy to sift thru the mess :p

    ReplyDelete
  32. you are so organized!!!! what a great space!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I feel much better now that you have some things on your desk! What is the purpose of your stamped image organizer? Is it something you want to take with you when shopping, or to keep track of what stamps are where, or what? I'm curious. At one point I had all my stamps stamped into a little bound journal but there wasn't any rhyme or reason to it and then it would be outdated when I gave a stamp away... and it didn't really have a purpose anyway.

  34. Argh! For some reason, my iPad won't let me see text on your blog...do you have a dark coloured background? So frustrating...I have NO idea why!! anyway, more agh!!! You're making Christmas cards...oh gracious, that and your (I think ) card index box...so impressive!!!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Heck Kay! As others have said...that's pretty tidy considering you are a crafter!!! LOL

  39. You are nice and tidy and that is great. I am somewhere in between. I like to put away as I go but the problem is where everything "goes" always is a bit of a jumble. But I guess we all just have our systems that work for us :)
    Great job on the chalkboard! It is so fun and crafty now!
    Thanks for visiting me earlier!

  40. I have several projects that I set aside, hoping inspiration comes to me later! Good luck to you!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Hey! Don't worry that your desk is neat. Mine is always cleaned up between projects because I used to always lose too much time trying to find things. I'm living proof that you can be tidy and crafty at the same time. Haha!

    Clever idea to put wipes in the film canister.

    Cheers,
