WOYWW and finally finished tag album version 2!

Oh the joys of being back at work has sunk in again..........help..........................................lol
Anyway now means crafting when i can or am still awake! so this is my desk in the middle of completing my tag album to store the tags from swops i have joined and the reason i am sharing my desk with you is the brainwave of Julia over at Stamping Ground, pop over for the reason why.
Anyway if you want to play i spy with my desk you should be spying my lappy (attached to my hip normally) where i was watching a film 'Super',my quickkutz squeeze and dies to cut out a million letters or at least it felt like that.My ikea pop up bin, scraps of paper left over from album which is leaning by bin along with tags to go inside.Ottilite lamp (fab for poor light) and some mini choc eggs got from a friend.

And this is the finished album,with tags in and room for more.Used card from stash and the new papermania boofle papers to decorate, mini tags which i edged using walnut stain distress ink and the tag with this fab freebie image from saturated canary (coloured with promarkers) was off a cardigan and i just covered with a scrap of paper.
And this was what all the letters were for, to do the months of the year on each pocket,will add info of tags later on. Tutorial to make this album if you fancy a go is here.
Thanks for all the lovely comments that you peeps leave on my blog and i will always pay you a return visit and try to get around as many blogs as i can as love being nosey peeking in,x
p.s sandra i know you will be reading this and its all tidy again :)

  37. Your desk looks so tidy and organised, I need lessons from you!!
    It fascinates me what people do while they are crafting. I've come across several WOYWWers who watch TV but I like my music, I'd never get anything done if there was something to watch.
    Love your tag book, what pretty papers.
    Happy WOYWW

  41. Hi Kay, thanks for visitiing my desk. Gosh the first Quickutz Squeeze I have seen on a desk on WOYWW. I had the shorter armed version first but used it so much the bearings went. Sent it back for repair but it was never the same (husband also had it in pieces to repair afterwards too). Bought the Squeeze with the alphabet after that and finally sucumbed to a Cuttlebug (you can cut multiple letters out all at once on a Cuttlebug) Loving your tag binder, I'm just sticking mine in my Art Journal, a couple per month. Thanks for sharing BJ#12
