Whats on my Workdesk Wednesday 202? Cards

Well hello again fellow Wednesday desk hopper from a vacationing Mrs Dunnit's over at Stamping Ground!  Thanks for coming to visit my desk in Cape Town, South Africa.  We are in the midst of a typical winter storm (howling wind, pouring rain and stupid drivers)
so being inside is the order of the day.
This is my desk as I left it at midnight last night after making up some cards to fill the different categories in my box.  A friend of mine is taking it to work with her today to see if she can sell any for me.  I also had a last minute order (8pm) for a Mazeltov on a baby boy card for today and that is the one you see on top of the pile on my desk.

I am unashamedly showing you my desk and floor to the left of me

 and to the right of me

as my desk seems to have shrinkage issues while I work...Then I give you an overview of the whole chaos...  The empty white box like the card display box is going to hold all the stuff that was in last weeks tin created while in my "car office" as I have two tins like that and I want to categorise my bits and pieces which I have prepared so it is easier to find them when I make my cards.
That's it from me this week.

Thanks for the visit.



  1. Hi Bella-
    Your link on Julia's page leads you right back to Julia's page instead of your blog....might get lonely that way.
    I am totally blown away by what looks like Pizza Boxes on hinges that hold your ink. Is that correct? What a flippin' brilliant idea. I am forever searching for just the right color of ink which means I touch every ink pad numerous times. I don't know know what I would do without the floor...doesn't matter what size your space is, we just want the stuff right next to us so when the spirit moves, we can dip into those supplies.
    Stay warm and away from the stupid drivers (we have them here too, and sometimes they don't even need a storm)!

  7. Found you :) I too am intrigued by the pizza boxes! You MUST focus on them at some point and satisfy my curiousity. Are they stacked on a step-stool or little ladder-y like thing? Do tell!
