WOYWW 104 - Woohoo!!!

Happy Anniversary Julia!
Congratulations to Julia for keeping this fantastic idea blog idea going - for TWO whole years!!! (Not that I've been participating that long) - check out Julia's extremely tidy desk here!!!

In preparation for this special WOYWW, I had all good intentions to get my workdesk clean & tidy and not just the small scrapping space I usually have - the whole desk, the shelf above it and the units beneath that were slowly becoming hidden by the stash mountain! Hmmph!!! Its that thing called TIME again that always seems to be against me!!!

Anyhow, I think maybe a better title for this week would be...

See what I mean??? Yikes - thats bad - but to be fair, I'm at the sorting out stage so it doesn't always look like that! Honest!!! LOL

I'd also tidied our utility room at the weekend and unearthed the metal garden bench (a miniature bench!) that you can see below - see the dark green - thats it! (not that it looks like a garden bench but trust me, it is) - it's now sitting behind my Expression with my cartridges, notepads & ATG - the best part is that the cutting mat for the Cricut will slide nicely underneath it - so no more having to move stuff from behind the machine to be able to cut!!! Result!!!

I thought I'd try this little storage unit below for all those part-used bits & bobs from various kits - so far so good - I just need to decide where I'm going to put it on my desk now!
Another reason why I decided to have a sort out was my new addition - another Cropper Hopper storage unit (indicated by the arrow) - I already have one for all my cardstock - you can store sooooooo much in there!!! Now I'm left wondering whether to get another one for my Patterned Paper!Anyway, it looks like I'll be spending any free time on Thursday finishing off - I will be taking a photo - to remind me how organized I like my desk which will hopefully mean it'll stay that way!!! Yeah, right... whom I kidding!!!

But I need it to be sorted so I can pack on Friday evening for the monthly crop on Saturday I go to - the one day each month that I can claim 6 hours of pure crafting, chatting & laughing!!!


  1. good luck with the sort out, it is always worse before it gets better!

  2. I'm a day late but just wanted to wish you a happy WOYWW 2nd birthday. I feel so lucky to have so many creative friends.
    Happy crafting.

  3. What a wonderful desk ... ooohhh let me come and help you sort it out LOL. I did do a little double take when you said you unearthed a bench! LOL. But I think it looks perfect for holding those bits.

  4. Hee hee, you made me giggle with your "Where IS my Workdesk" :)
    Nice space you have, I will be back to check if you get it sorted!
    Happy 2nd Anniversary WOYWW!

  5. Great fun to have a sort out, isn't it? Happy WOYWW, heres to many more

  6. you need help - send stash my way and soon your area will be clear - honest I don't mind taking on some of the burden of that fab stash,

    happy 104


  7. I can see an inch of your desk I think

    Oh perhaps I cant .... LOL

    Happy 104th week, so lovely you 'meet' you and so many others on wednesday

  8. It's always darkest before the dawn ... I'm sure you'll have it straight soon - and then mess it up again after another delivery from the USA :P
    Looking forward to scrapping on Saturday too - be good to catch up! JJxx

  9. It is fun sorting chaos out ...I usually find loads that I have totally forgotten about ...shows I am an impulse shopper ...when I've got the money.Have fun at your crop.

  10. Its funny how when we tidy we seem to get messier before it improves - love some of your storage ideas - Happy WOYWW Anniversary

  11. nice desk...somewhere. Mine is almost as creative I just can't lay claim to sorting it out. Sorry I am so late getting around but it was a busy week. Happy WOYWW #104 and the 2nd anniversary of blog snooping! Thanks for sharing Vickie #55

  12. Yeah - you might as well get another Cropper Hopper now, you now you will so sooner is better!! I love the little bench, and what a great way to use it!
