WOYWW

Good morning,

It's time for What's on your workdesk Wednesday again. Pop on over to Julia's blog to find out more.

I cheated, if I had taken a photo today my desk would have been empty, so I took a picture mid-project during the week.

I have to admit that at this stage I stopped to tidy up before I continued working. This is very untidy for me!

I am beginning to feel there is something not quite right with me when I craft. I always stop to put away something I have just used, even if I have to get it out again two minutes later. I like everything stored within arm's reach to make it easier to get it out and put it away again.

I am working on a sample card here for Cuddly Buddly which I should be able to put on my blog next week.

I'm sorry I didn't get round to visiting everyone's WOYWW space last week, I will try harder this week.

Hugs, Clare xx

Morning Clare

I like the look of your desk better than my own, mine is tidy, so tidy it means I am not doing anything which is bad news when I have so much to do.

I usually have to keep my space pretty tidy but this week is an exception and it's a real mess so will be pleasing many later by showing me in a mess :-)

LadyBug said...

No there's nothing worng with having a clear up mid project :) I also put things away as I finish using them even if they will be needed again in minutes, I like to know where everything is and it saves time searching for tools if they are in the right place :)

Paula Gale said...

Hi Clare, well I wish my desk had been as tidy as that an hour ago, but oh well never mind its clear now. With love and hugs Shirleyxx

SueH said...

Clair, you put me to shame.
I try to be a ‘tidy’ crafter but I always fail dismally.
I seem to spend the majority of my time searching my table for something I only put down seconds ago!

Loving the colours you’re working with there and the sweet little flowers that are under construction.

Linby said...

You've got a lovely space to work on here.

Hels Sheridan said...

Very neat and tidy and that projecf looks interesting :O)

Sally H said...

that's what I call tidy mess!

Rachel said...

what is this tidying of which you speak? More seriously, how can I be more like you? My table looks like I've had a burglary.

Tonya said...

I think it looks great - very tidy.

Angie said...

In some ways I wish I was like you ...re putting things away ... as the habbit of not 'incase I need it' flows into the kitchen too and I find it really hard not to loose the worksurface on a busy cooking or baking day lol

Kat said...

Wish I could be tidy like you Clare. Even when I've tidied my table still has stuff on it that I "might" need! To make things worse lots of my things are not that near my table so I have to keep getting up and fetching things and I only have a small guillotine within reach so if I need to cut into a 12x12 I have to get up and go elsewhere to do it.

Penni said...

You are a very tidy worker Clare - I always start off meaning to tidy as I go and then end up in a complete mess of paper etc!!!

Julia Dunnit said...

Oh no Clare - nothing wrong with you...I'm just driven by a completely different set of genes. The lazy, untidy ones!! Your desk looks great to me, aspirational, even.

Linda Elbourne said...

Lovely colour coordinated tidiness ... I wish :0)

Donna said...

I'm the same as you Clare, I like to put things away as soon as i have finished with them...it's when I don;t that I can;t find them lol! :) Donna x

Julie said...

Wow such a neat organised desk- I have to tidy away after each card but during the process everything comes out on the desk!! I feel quite jealous that you can work so tidily! Juliex

Gez said...

Fab desk Clare. I love the little white wire racks on your desk they look so handy. Oooh I spy some Copics too! Good Luck with your card.xx

Sam said...

interesting looking desk - I just have to ask though - what on earth is that syringe doing on your desk - what do you used it for in crafting!????

Nikki said...

I have to agree about putting things away today my desk right after using them if not I always wonder why I can't find it ... in front of my face
hugs Nikki

shirley said...

What a lovely desk, I love the colours you are working with atm.

Jennie said...

Great desk!

The Paper Princess said...

Hi Clare,

I wish my desk always looked this "untidy"! I love the white organizers you have in the back that keep all of the pens and markers and stuff at bay! It's fun to see your work in progress at well!

Hugs
Ramona :-)
