What's on My Workdesk Wednesday 211? EVERYTHING!

Hello my fellow Desk Hopper, welcome to my desk in Cape Town, South Africa.

I am busy with this Saturdays class layout and a Spiderman card order for later today...

It has taken me a week to get my craft room sorted and to find space for all the paper storage cubes I was gifted last Tuesday...all 15 of them!  My dining room table is still covered in piles of organised books and magazines that came home in them, but that is another post altogether...its a gift that just keeps on giving!

I am officially the proud owner of one of Lunch Lady Jan's fabric buntings as my swap for WOYWW4.  Due to my clean up, re-organise and sort out, I had just got rid of my curtain rail and curtains, but had not yet taken down the hooks, which was a good thing cos when this arrived in the post yesterday, I knew just where it was going to go!  The perfect fit!

Then here is my pass it forward gift from Neil, my official partner who spoilt me with lots of chippies and a fab ATC.

Here are 2 more ATCs that arrived from Nan G and Ali H, just in time for today's desk viewing.

I leave you with a few more shots of my room to show where I have jigsaw puzzled the cubes in! 

Thanks for the visit, I will see you at your desk shortly!



  1. You have a great crafting space and how nice to do those swaps the bunting is fab!!! And more ATC's lucky you

  2. oh, so pretty!! Love your reorganised studio and the bunting (and gifts from Neil) look gorgeous. Have a great week Helen 31

  3. Hi Bella - I love your new storage - You can never have enough of that! You are right Jan's bunting is perfect. Hope you get your card finished. Love the web. Happy WOYWW to you from Helen 78

  4. You have made great use of all those storage cubes and the bunting is fabulous. Love all the bits and pieces you have collected from the swap.

  5. Lucky girl :) what a fab gift and yes you can never have enough storage. How wonderful for you. Love seeing what you are up to :D

  6. It's called scrappers' paradise!

  7. Your room is a crafting heaven - love it. Thanks for sharing. Happy WOYWW Gill x #89

  8. Yay, it fits really well into the window space! So glad you like it...I loved the juicy colours...they're a bit of a departure for me, but I'm really into tropical colours at the moment! Believe me, making the bunting was a lot less stressful than stamping the ATCs for me! Lol

  9. Nice job getting it all in your room! Love the bunting and the ATC n RAK from Neil is fab! I've been trying to get organized for over a year. When stuff started falling off the shelf that was the last straw! It'll take a few months to get it all done. I'll be sharing progress of my journey. :) Glad the ATC arrived. Thanks for the earlier visit. Happy WOYWW! Nan G #3
