WOYWW 6th October

It's time for another WOYWW, if you have never joined in with the fun that is What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday, then pop over to Julia's place HERE and you will be transported there in a jiffy where you will find all the details and some fab desks to nose around.  ENJOY.
I took these pictures on Tuesday when I was re-organising my room.  I spent most of the day Monday and Tuesday moving things around and dusting only to put most things back to where they were in the first place, never mind at least it's dust free if nothing else.  After moving everything around I decided that most things worked best in their original place, I just can't help myself, I always feel better when I have re-organised/cleaned, feels like a fresh start.   On my desk today are a small pile of Christmas cards that I have started, the top one being for The Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge which I will post after WOYWW.  The birdcage and arch are for my next DT piece for The Stamp Attic.  I have promised myself that when I enter a challenge I will try and make a Christmas card so that I am organised and not leaving anything to the last minute.  I love to have December free just for ME, to do what I want, well that's the plan anyway.
Towards the right of my desk, I have moved a few baskets and placed these cupboards there instead as it gives me a little more room to work on my BigShot and some of my embellishments are closer to hand.  I did manage to visit ALL the desks last week which was quite an achievement as there was well over a hundred, must admit it was great fun having a good old nose at everyones creative space and all the new stash you had all purchased.  I'm going to Port Sunlight this weekend so I am hoping for more new goodies to show you next week.  I have placed this on a scheduled post just to see if it works, cross fingers.  Have a great Wednesday,  Tracy x x

A good dust and tidy does us all good and as I said on my blog last week....If it ain't broke why fix it? It was obviously all just where you needed it so why move it? :-)

As usual VERY tidy but I like it - I look at your desk and think " Thats what mine will be like one day".....but it never happens! Still look out as this weekend I will have a clean up (as you say at least get rid of the dust)and I might have a bit of a change!
Hugs,
Cardarian

Helen said...

I don't know HOW you keep so tidy! You do put me to shame. Have a great time at Port Sunlight.

nerllybird said...

I love the look of that chipboard (?) birdcage - where's it from, may I ask??
I like your card/challenge plan, too. Sadly it wouldn't work for me as I'm unlikely to enter 90 challenges before Christmas, lol!

Hi Tracy. Your desk looks as tidy as ever. I wish I could be like that but....well...I doubt I ever will! *Ü* It's always good to start early - be it Christmas or any other holiday. How is your allotment? Have a fun day. TFS. ~Glen~

Doone said...

I think you could run courses for us on tidying and organising our workspace!!

Sarah Anderson said...

Next time you're in organising mood you are very, very, very welcome to come over to mine and help me :) I can't seem to get mine sorted :)

sasa said...

That is one tidy desk - but good to be dust free. I must do the same this week too - Love the feeling of a sorted space. Great card too - all the best with the Christmas orders!

Sarah Youde said...

I am never happier than when everything is tidy. I do tidy up almost every time I leave the craft room which is weird because I got a craft room so that I wouldn't have to tidy up every time I crafted - I have realized you can't stop me from wanting things to be neat lol.

JoZart said...

I can't believe what I see....You need to rent yourself out to do tidy ups!! You'd make a bomb.
Look forward to seeing you at Port Sunny and wait till you see my demo desk mess!! Heh heh! Will you cope?
