WOYWW 172 and a confession

forgive me Julia for I have sinned and broken the rules!!! I wasn't going to join in this week as I have so much to do and shouldn't be on here now. So I sorted out my desk and craftroom/bedroom. Just couldn't not join in though so I took my photo after I'd tidied up - this afternoon, I promise I won't do it again :-)

The desk - as you can see very tidy - just a punch tp put away and some stamps.

A card I am working on, the stamps and a leaflet from Ikea - a sofa chair I am thinking of getting.

Ah and a box of tiny bits and some much bigger bits of papers I've used. I was trying to put them into some sort of order and see if I could bring myself to throw some away- didn't happen - you never know when that itty bitty piece for something so I more or less dumped them all back in the box - tomorrow is another day- I might have a sort through again.

Well there you have it. If you are reading this and don't know why some mad lady is rattling on about her desk click on the WOYWW button on my blog and you too will soon be joining in!!! A x


  1. I was away from my desk last week and couldn't leave any comments so I'm trying to get around as many of my blogging friends today.
    I've enjoyed my snoop even though you'd tidied up :-)

  2. You are a tidy crafter.
    Thanks for sharing your work space and have a great and creative end to the week. Happy WOYWW.
    hugs {brenda} xox

  3. We crafters hate to throw anything away - they will be useful for something. x Jo

  4. lovely tidy desk. good luck in trying to let go of the little scraps of paper & card, i find it so hard to put off cut in the bin . happy crafting , jill#75

  5. I've got a bag full of small/tiny fabric scraps that I though I'd use for something - do you know what? They're probably going to end up as filling for a draught excluder or something - I can't throw them (too tight, you see!) but I know that I'm never, ever going to create something small and dainty (too impatient!)

    Sigh, I am getting to know myself rather too well in my old age!
    Thanks for the visit :)
    Hugs, LLJ #73 xx

  6. Happy WOYWW and I am glad you showed up this week! I really dread it when I know life is going to interfer with my WOYWW! I have had boxes of bits and pieces of papers before. Now I separate them my colors/patterns and put them in a clear sheet protector and put them in with the large sheets that way I can get find them fast. Hope you have a great week and look forward to seeing you next week. Vickie #71

  7. Happy WOYWW. What a neat workspace and a great way of storing your Pro-markers. Foot is a lot better but still can't drive.. Hope to be there Sat if Linda can pick me up.xx Sandy

  8. Tidy creativity, Anne! Along with the knitting you mentioned on my blog, you are busy and productive indeed! Bravo! I am encouraged to follow your good example :)

  9. Some weeks this week ...I dont show a desk but join in as I am adicted and get withdrawl when I dont lol.
    I have tried to sort scraps so many times ...and only thrown way the tiny bits that make me think 'why did I save that'.. do I use my scraps up??? no ...but some where I saw the most amazing LO using only scraps for thought xx#8

  10. It is good to have a tidy up now and then! I like starting over with a nice clear desk, so I usually clear away between projects. Never throw away the snippets of paper. They will come in handy one day. Kate x #97

  11. Lovely tidy desk this week Anne - I love your wee heart blackboard! Gorgeous!


  12. Hi there Anne, ah our desks are a treasure of fun and you certainly did tidy yours didn't you!!
    With scraps keep them in with my sets if belong to a set as find I use them and if not then colour code them in wee bags or size to fit and then put them in plastic drawers - so all sorted now!! took me while to work it out but very happy now. It works and that's all that matters. Thanks so much for popping over and thanks for sharing ~ happy WOYWW! Shaz in Oz. x #35

  13. Hi Anne, Just been for a snoop. Lots of projects waiting to happen. Are you going Sat. xxSandy
