What is WOYWW? Check Julia's blog to find out and then join in - simples! Mine's reasonably tidy, unless you look at that jumble in the centre of the desk at the back, I just keep piling bits on there and very little of it has been moved for a couple of weeks, just the top few bits to look for something :-> I had a tidy up on Sunday and since then have just been working on my '12 Tags of Christmas' a la Tim You'd think it would be easy following his instructions but there are so many items he uses that I don't have and which I'm not going to buy; sometimes I have a reasonable substitute; and that then involves a lot of faffing while I try something that doesn't quite work and have to try something else - you KNOW how it goes I know you do! The tag on the cutting mat is a prime example; it was finished but last night (or rather the early hours of the morning) I decided I dind't like the baubles so pulled them off. Talking about the early hours of the morning, I couldn't sleep last night and got up twice (on the computer the first time then a little crafting the second time) and was awake till after 6.30!!! I got up at 10 :-/ I had a night out last night but was home by 10.30 pm. obviously tooooo much excitement at my age LOL

We're out tonight and it'll be about 10 when we get home!! Your desk is looking good - considering the amount of stuff you could have out for Tim! I don't know about his other skills, but he sure is the king of piling on the product!

You're right, it's very tidy! Like you I was up in the early hours, also on the computer then crafting... it must be catching!
My desk only shows the bit in the middle, I didn't dare take a picture showing the whole of my desk!

Tim is quite amazing really - all those techniques and styles! But it is definitely NOT my style - I don't like all that faffing about! ;-)

It must be something a lot of us are suffering from at the mo. Busy heads creating all day and they wont let us sleep at night. Last night was a poor one for me too.

Your desk sounds just like mine Anne……..more and more stuff comes out of the cupboard on to the desk and the space I work in gets smaller and smaller.
The tags are looking great and I really love the Blue reindeer one, really pretty. I may jus have to go have a look at Tim’s instructions myself.
