WOYWW 140 - Absolutely Nothing!


Well, other than the obligatory cup of coffee and another junk shop find...That's because on Sunday, I did a HUGE full day clean up and sort out of all my stash, stamps, paper and "rats nests" of general crafting litter so I have a desk again.  I have used it since to make a card or two, but it is so nice to be able to pack everything away easily, that all evidence is gone already!  I even found some wrapping paper I had purchased an age ago to cover some of my boxes in to make the room more festive and so have done the box under my desk that houses my picture frames that I am rehabilitating.

LONG MAY THIS LAST!  I am shouting this sentence so it might stick in my brain better.  I am sure in a few Wednesdays or less, the craft litter will have encroached my green A1 mat again, but hey, I am enjoying it while it lasts.

The clean up was not on my schedule of things to do, it happened as a result of pure frustration so I am afraid there are no "before shots" to show you...


However, here is the before shot of a shadow box that I found at a Charity shop yesterday for R25 (Rands = 8 to 1 Dollar and 11 to 1 Pounds) (so plus-minus, 3 Dollars or 2 Pounds) forgive me if I am out, I am an artist not an accountant...but you get the drift I hope!

I hope you are all enjoying your Wednesday, I know I always look forward to it as it is the day we join Julia over at Stamping Ground and do the World Wide Desk Hop (WWDH for WOYWW!) What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday!

I am off to peruse what desks are on offer and visit some of the friends I have made over the year that I have been WOYWWing.

Thanks for stopping by

  13. Oh the shame.... Not of your space but of mine! I feel embarrassed that mine does not look as lovely and full of creative promise as yours does. I'm going straight to tidy up as soon as I get home from work! I heart your bargain too - I really must visit thrift shops more!

  18. Congrats on all the organizing and tidying up. I always say every time that I do it that I'm never going to let it get as bad again, and each time I messy it up, it's a little less, so maybe I'm keeping to my promise. ;)

  24. It looks as if everything is right at your fingertips! That's great - wish I could have that kind of set up. Just don't have the room.

    Isn't it great when you find things (like your shadow box) that you can take home and make your own. Just love it!!

    Happy WOYWW
    Hugs,

  32. What a beautifully tidy and organised desk space. Well done for achieving that level of tidiness. I hope you are a lot warmer out there than we are in England. The only thing is that the cold snowy weather gives us plenty of time curled up inside to get on with crafting. Please show us your tray when it is finished and in use. Have a good week. xx Maggie #89
