WOYWW 176

Good morning and happy Wednesday. Here’s my workdesk today.17.10.12 I’ve been busy with the Creative Craft World minikit challenge so you have a sneak preview of the card and two 12x6 layouts that I’ve done for my DT work. The papers are gorgeous! My regular visitors (thank you) will know I’ve been slowly sorting and organising the tip I fondly call my craft room. Yesterday I bought some of the pink boxes you can see on the left of the photo – they are reduced to £3.99 in The Works. This one now contains the ink pads and other stamping paraphernalia that usually rattle around the bottom of my crop tote. Four of them fit perfectly into the Papermania wheeled tote.

OK time for some workdesk hopping at What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday.

Shame the conflict kept you from the crop :( Maybe next time - and there HAS to be a next time!!

Your hamster always makes me smile :) He should be the size of a house as much as he gets fed....

Lol at Helen- they remind me of the 'virtual pet' Tamagochi that were about 15 or so years ago- I had to look after my sons while he was at school- I used to worry about feeding that too! Great desk, I love the Works for great bargains too.Have a great Wednesday, Hugs Shaz #96 xx

House of Bears said...

Never mind the pink boxes, we need one of those fabulous smiley face pots we see on your desk.

Thanks for visiting the bears earlier today. :)

Jennie Hart said...

Beautiful scrapping I see there Sue, I shall look forward to seeing those in more detail.

Looking pretty good and organised there :D xxx

You do look organised! I seem to be constantly wading through all my stuff trying to find what I need! Got to get me some pink boxes :-)

susibee said...

Your desk looks very organised and neat. I love the pages you've made and I see you are still very into hexagons:D

Those boxes look a bargain.

SueH said...

Oh I do love a bargain Sue!
It will make such a difference in your tote instead of having them loose in the bottom. I always find the lids come off the my inks and make a mess of everything so maybe I should invest too.

Thanks for stopping by this week.
Happy Crafting!

The lyrics are from a group called No Secrets. I don't have a clue who they are, I just googled a lyric for friendship and that popped up!

Nice colours for the LOs, and I really like the patchwork effect, very effective. I'm impressed by your boxes..they sure will make carting stuff around so much easier.

Anne said...

Great boxes lots of creating going on there on your desk. Hope to get some cards made now that I've moved everything and sorted it. Thanks for visiting me. Anne x #136

Loving how you're getting organised and it's always good to get a bargin. Loved that bridal minibook btw. Totally different take on this from many others I've seen. Happy WOYWW, hugs Buttons #119

Your pages are looking good - 12 x 6 is a fun size to work with. And it always feels good to get a little more organized, doesn't it. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog this a.m. S

belldoubleyou said...

Ooh, a paper towel roll right on your desk! That's a very tempting idea...

sandra de said...

Great pages and I think you might have to put your hamster on a diet I have been feeding him continually!!

Twiglet said...

Pretty cards and LO pics today!!

Eliza said...

Oh that card in the background looks lovely and getting organized and cleaning up, be careful. I fed your hamster too, hope you don't mind, it's the animal thing I love all animals.

Happy WOYWW

Isn't it nice to get a bargain that works out so well! Thanks for stopping by my blog.

Jules occasionally vintage said...

Your flower card in background looks great! Love the colours. And I must say that smilely cup is great. I want one :) x Jules 91

Shoshi said...

Another one having a clear-out and a tidy-up lol! I love those papers, and I think hexagons are a fantastic shape for any design - so versatile. I've got a box something like your pink one, which I keep various tools in. It has an inner tray that lifts up as you raise the lid.

Thanks for your nice comment, and glad you like my new book! I finished the art journal page last night and I've now uploaded another blog post about the completed project if you want to pop back and have a look. It came out better than I expected!

Thanks for your good wishes, too. Things are not easy family-wise atm and not really likely to improve much unless we can get my parents' house sold. It's very difficult as they are so elderly and vulnerable now.

Happy belated WOYWW,

Shoshi said...

PS Your little hamster will need to go on a diet - I've been feeding him too much lol! He is soooo cute!
