WOYWW and its rather bare

Well i have come to the conclusion that i can not be messy or spread out in my crafting no matter how hard i try so shall accept i am a tidy crafter and just enjoy looking at other crafters desks and imagine how i am going to organise them......lol
Am showing my desk again to join in with the gang over at stamping ground led by the team lead Julia and as you can see no crafting on it :(

Received this gorgeous card and images from a buddy yesterday to cheer me up as still not feeling great with my cold (reckon its here for the duration!) and you can see a diecut from my newest die just waiting to go on a card and a envelope underneath it  made using my mothers day pressie which was a martha stewart score board but thats it.Looking forward to the easter holidays so i can recharge my batteries from work and craft though i did manage to make a card on sunday ( see earlier post)
 Someone asked me what was in the bags on hooks above my desks so this is a close up,i keep all my foam pads for my distress inks in a labeled bag so they are close to hand,yes i am that organised........lol
Have ordered my multi medium now so i can do the next stage of my altered book as got so far and had to stop. Hopefully will be here for the weekend and if you are looking closely thats the wrong date on the camera,still using a borrowed one.
Anyway thanks for visiting my blog,off to have a nosey at some before i go to work and i will be catching up with the others after work,have a good day,x

  4. What I love about WOYWW is knowing that I am not the only totally messy crafter around, so seeing a neat and tidy area unnerves me a bit. If you are at a loose end Kay, and want to tidy, you are welcome to visit! Hugs Sxx

  5. Oh my goodness you are organised aren't you? Thinking of the bags with the foam in them.
    I love a neat desk myself but often it gets to the "not neat" stage and then I have a massive clean up. Going to do that right now!
    Hugs, Neet #4 xx
    thanks for including your number it does help.

  12. Hi there. My desk actually looks neat this week too. Usually I'll drag something out to the table, then think I need this and that and next thing I know I have piles!! We all have different ways of creating and our worksurfaces show it!

    The card is so cute.

    Happy WOYWW
    Hugs,

  14. I'm all for tidying, I just can't seem to maintain it. It makes it easier when things are where they belong and you can go right to them. I suffer lack of space which is part of it. Hope you feel better soon! Happy WOYWW Judy #134.

  15. Am loving the new die can't wait to borrow it lol Glad the goodies arrive ok. Hope you get back to your normal naughty self soon. Let me get near that desk i'll soon untidy it for you. xx

  17. Wednesday’s sure do come around quick! Trying again to make “All” the rounds. I store mine the same way it works great..well except when I'm in a hurry and dont' put them away. LOL Have a great day!

  18. Do you perchance organize other desks? Oh my.. I know mine could use some help! I hope you get to feeling better soon! Warmly, Tracy #34 (and happy WOYWW!)

  19. One thing I love about WOYWW is that everyone on here is so different - in what they create, and how they organise their creative spaces, and how tidy (or not!) they are! I go through times of being mega-organised, but these days it's mostly chaotic... One day, I promise myself, probably after we move in a couple of years' time, I shall be completely organised - I'd like to organise an ARTHaven from scratch instead of growing one piecemeal as I've done here. Now I know what I want, it should be easier!

    I'm very interested in your altered book. Not sure what multi-medium is - it looks a bit like gesso? Is this a preparation layer for painting, or is it like a glue for adding more paper/card? I love foam brushes for this sort of thing.

    You are a Very Tidy Worker. Well done!

    Happy WOYWW,

  20. I think there are either super tidy or super messy crafters and nothing in between. You are definitely super tidy. How I wish I was!!!
    Sorry to hear you are still struggling with your cold. Hopefully it'll be on it's way out now.
    Take care and Happy WOYWW

  22. Popping in to thank you for stopping by and leaving me a comment. It is nice to see a fellow "neatnik," although I love looking at them all, whether organized or not. I've avoided any colds while the rest of the family has been dealing with more than one - until this week, ugh. It's not bad, but I hope it goes away soon and that yours does as well! #141

  23. Wow your craft desk is awesome, sooo wush mine was that organised. Perhaps you could come and sort mine out :-D perhaps you should go into business, organising other peoples craft desks, you'd make a fortune. Love the ink pad organiser, def be having a go at doing that.

  24. Hi Kay, me again, and thanks for replying to my query so quickly. It's Claudine Helmuth's own fancy name for something I know about - acrylic gel medium! I've got them in lots of different thicknesses and finishes, and am familiar with them as glues for collage etc. as well as other purposes. I think I was confused because it was going on white (which of course it does till it dries) - thought it was gesso at first. Thanks anyway!

  25. You must have had an anxiety attach when you visited my desk today!! I would love to be tidy. I really like your idea for the foam pads, I only have three applicators and it drives me crazy cos I have loads of different ink pads. I have been thinking about taping a long strip of velcro to the wall and putting them on there.. I love your idea but I am such a messy person the bags would all be empty in one day!! Cindy #17

  26. I love a tidy desk! And working in a tidy space too, nothing wrong with that! Although saying that I have a messy desk this week! Great idea to store the cut & dry, brill I might nick that one!

  27. Heh heh. I like neat, too. I say there's nothing wrong with it and we should embrace our quirks. And, we can find things.

    Thanks for visiting me! I'll use the nobs as shadow box handles and bases. Unless something better comes along.

    Cheers,
    Susan

  30. Aw! That is such a pretty card and would cheer anyone up!
    I have a theory - Creativity = Messey!! You can't be creative and tidy at the same time.

  32. Glad I'm not the only one who likes to be tidy and organised - lol.

    You admired my cork board and asked if I enjoyed all the wine .... lol, I have to stop after only a couple of glasses these days!

    Hope you feel better very soon xx

    ReplyDelete
  35. Wow, I'd love to have you over to organize me! Sometimes I just have piles everywhere. Good luck with the next step of the AB. Thanks for stopping by my blog.

  39. Great cards...oldies but goodies!
    Thanks for the kind words about my husband. He is resting and watching the game and sent me off to play on my computer...heopfully he doesn't have another heart attack from the game excitement!

    ReplyDelete
  40. You are so clean and organised it's scary. If you look at mine you will have a heart attack. Then again you did say that you would look and see how to organise the desks, so any ideas greatly accepted. :)

  41. Oh! Your card is so lovely! And which die is that, your newest one? And how do you store your dies? Lots of questions, lol!
    That is a great idea for storing the foam pads! Mine are all jumbled into a mug which I have to dump out to find the right one and then wonder "is this the right blue one?"
    Thanks for the peek and visiting me earlier!

  42. Me again :)
    I just noticed you had the word "die" as a link, so I now know which die it is! Thanks for the link!

  43. Oh can you come and sort me out pleeeeease?

    Thanks for visiting, hope your cold leaves soon:)

  44. I had hoped I was a tidy crafter but you beat me hands down! Mess drives me potty and often I have to just stop what I am doing and tidy up and then start over again. Sorry I haven't returned your visit to my blog before now ... latest project is taking FAR longer than anticipated and time just ran away with me. Love Debbie xXx

    ReplyDelete
  45. Hurrah ! At last I have found another crafter like me who likes to be organised. I have to clear away one project before I can start on another and tend to clear up as I go along. Thought I was abnormal.
    Thanks for popping into my studio Kay.#

    Tell us more about that die....??
    Hope your feeling better soon.!

  47. Hope your feeling better soon. I was thinking of using the bags on a ring type storage for my ribbons, I haven't got enough TH foam pads to need to 'store' them.... yet... :o) I got a MS scoring board about a year ago and don't know how I managed without it, it's soo handy. x

  48. NEVER apologise for a tidy desk....good for you. Glad that card cheered you up too! Great storage idea too! Thanks for sharing your desk and a bit of your life! Sarah (a late WOYWWer at no.1)
