WOYWW (What's on your workdesk Wednesday)



It's that day again ;) If you'd like to find out more visit Julia's blog and then join in :) Mine's a complete mess this week :O I've been making Christmas cards - don't normally start them early but as I was still busy on Christmas Eve, which included making a few last minute cards for DD, I decided I'd get the cards out of the way and hopefully can sit with my feet up on Christmas Eve this year :) I've decided to adopt the 'desk bin' though my ice-cream tub bin is unadorned as yet. I usually have a carrier bag over the back of my chair but the bin is much more convenient. You can see I've still got the 'off-cut box' with off-cuts still piled on top; I'm sure I'll get round to sorting them out eventually :-/ The Christmas cards on the desk are waiting for greetings the others I've made so far live in the basket at the back right of the desk where I put finished cards. I thought I'd show one of the stocking cards I've made. It's very simple but of course could be decorated and embellished to within an inch of it's life. I drew the shape myself - 'so what' you may say! Well, I say I cannot draw, except very basic shapes so anything I draw that I think looks reasonable deserves a mention. Hehe. Most of the time when using ribbon I fold it in half and cut at an angle, to give a 'v' shape, which gives a nice finish to the edge of the ribbon I think.
Thanks for looking ;)

Oh Blimey. How organised are you? I'm really glad to be Christmas free for a few months to be honest.

Cor Anne, it's a hive of christmas industry! As you know, LOVE the stamps, so the stocking is a dead cert for me. Of course, I have the moral high ground now, because my scraps are still perfectly colour sorted. Man I'm so big headed about it! And the desk bin - another top innovation on my desk, hope it works for you!

Doesn't look that messy to me. Like the basket with your bits in x

It seems to me when looking around all these crafting spaces, they look pretty much interchangeable one mess is pretty much like another and it makes me feel good to realise that I'm not the only one to work amid turmoil!

Oh your desk looks fabulous to me. Thank you for visiting my workspace. The little white pads were off cuts of cut & dry foam. :) Have a great weekend. Gez.
