Morning dear WOYWW friends. Another week has flown by so here is my desk this morning.

Thought I'd give you a large view this morning so you can see the mess I work in!!

I'm making some cards using up some papers DD had and was getting rid of during a recent clear out as they are too young for her now. I rescued them as I thought they'd make great children's cards.Two 6x6 sheets have made 4 cards so that's stocked my box up a bit.

It's embarrassing the amount of stuff that is all over the place. I don't notice it when I'm busy, but stopping to look at it now makes me cringe. At least the important things are there, like a cup of tea and my music!!

Well, that's me today, if you want to share your crafty space with us on WOYWW then pop over to see the lovely Julia, HERE. 

Have a great Wednesday and Happy Crafting!!

What a productive desk - there's something to be said for having everything to hand! That's a sweet card and a great way to recycle DD's unwanted papers!
Hope you have a great week,

Hi Lisa, your desk made me smile, I end up in the most almighty mess when working, it's hard to see any desk surface at all. And I often spill over to the desk behind me, and the floor! Have a lovely week, Hugs, Shaz #1 XxXx

I'm chuckling at your 'mess' Lisa. Just wish I could limit myself to the one desk.....I tend to fill my room when I get going. And if it's anything like this morning my room was full with fabrics on every surface.....and I had two customers! So now I have to make room to do their sewing first. I'm not complaining though cos that's what pays the bills .
Have a great week.

I think 90% of the crafters are messy, that's the way we roll :-), Thx for your visit, vicky

It's not embarrassing, it's 'creative' 😃 And there's more to see on a busy desk so it's more interesting too! And the cuppa is obligatory...
I can't believe your gal is 16! Blimey I have known you for a long time, she was still in primary when we first met 😊
Hugs, LLJ 4 xx

My desk tends to end up like that, but I took the photo so you couldn't see the side messes lol. Wonderful that you rescued the papers. Looks like some fun cards in the making.

Goodness me you can certainly cram a great deal into that space, looks like a very productive space though.
Why is it though that when we have started sowing our seeds we get night frosts.
Hope all is well in your garden.

Hi Lisa, you've got to have stuff round you Lol! it's the law! You simply must have a look at Seth Apter's products though you do need to like your projects are abstract,grungy,aged and worn. He has dies, inks and stamps. Art from the Heart and Country view crafts stock plenty of them. He often leaves a comment if he notices you've made something with his products which means he's a good bloke in my book. Have a great week and a happy woyww, Angela x7x

Looks wonderfully creatively messy to me! Thanks for sharing! Lindart #34

No need to be embarrassed, all our desks look this way! Dorlene #33

I feel right at home at your desk. Now you need to learn how to not see the stuff you don't want to, it's a big old skill of mine! The cards are pretty, I admire that you didn't just file the papers for a later date!

I might have a tidy desk as I am painting but if I turned the camera to the other desk you would get quite a surprise. Always nice to have some pretty girly cards. have a lovely week.

Makes me feel so much better about the state of my crafting table of doom! Cara x

I just had to click in for a close up of how your ink pads were coping but can now see the stand they are on! As long as you can find everything that is all that matters. Thanks for the visit BJ#23

"One man's trash is another man's treasure" is something I always think about. I give all my birthday and Christmas (Handmade) cards to a friend and she remakes them for her brother's nursing home to help raise money for the patients.
Nice to see such a busy desk - not a mess - just things to hand.
Hugs and Thanks for visiting me

Music and something to drink (coffee, in my case) are indeed the most important things to have on your desk! LOVE to see your 'mess'... happy creating! Thanks for visiting my blog earlier - I had a lot of appointments last week so I am very late with paying a visit back... hope you had a lovely weekend! Hug from Holland, Marit #16
