WOYWW

I haven't taken part in Julia's phenomenal WOYWW for a couple of weeks now. I figured you might get bored seeing the same tidy desk week after week!!

Today I am proving to you that I do make a mess!

On the heat mat is my work-in-progress tag using some scrummy new colour TH inks.

The second photo shows what you see on the wall opposite my desk. I just have room to turn may chair between these storage units and my desk so everything is to hand without me having to get up.

I love the Really Useful Box storage unit on the lefthand side. In here I keep all my dewdrop ink pads, small punches, paper pads, SU! stamp and finished cards.

The really useful box on top of the unit in the middle holds all my 12" x 12" papers, it really is useful because the suspension files in it are slightly larger than 12" x 12".

On the very far left you can see some shirts waiting to be ironed! I wonder if they will get dealt with today.

I look foward to visiting your workspace today.

If you want to join in then visit Julia's blog by following the WOYWW link on my sidebar.

Have a great day!

Clare xx

I do love Wednesdays now :) ... it's always fun to see peoples work spaces, even better when we get a little look see, at what else is in their craft space LOL. Any chance I could add my ironing to that pile? LOL

Hi Clare

Sorry what mess? Looks lovely and tidy to me. Can't join in as I don't think my bed could be called a desk!!!! Maybe if I got one I could draw a straight line!!

I guess one crafter's 'mess' is another one's tidiness and one crafter's mess is another one's nightmare! We are all so different but on the same creative journey together.

Julia Dunnit said...

I'm guessing that the ironing will be done. This based on your opinion of a mess! (Have you been to my place yet!!) What's the yellow thing just in shot on the wall? Fancy light? Dustbuster? Show and tell!!

Liverpool Lou (Anne) said...

Ha that's about the extent of my mess too. I like things to be neat and tidy so almost always clear away when I'm finished crafting so I have a clear desk for next time I'm in a creative mood :o)
