WOYWW 151...

Wednesday morning...light just coming up, and my desk is as it has been for several weeks.. a mess! Now there is no one to blame except myself, and if you think this is bad you should see the floor! No, you can't! It seems that really having time to create wonderful pieces of art has eluded me for several weeks....it could be that I need to tidy up!

So next week is tidyup week and watch this space for an ATC and the amazing 3rd anniversary of What's On Your Workdesk! I will be back with tidy desk in its honour!
Have a great day, and pop over to Mrs Dunnit's for the wonderful world of desks!
Happy woywwing

Messy desks seem to be a common theme this week. Perhaps a mass spring clean is in order?

Happy Wednesday.

RosC said...

Looks as though your attentions have been hi-jacked elsewhere, Jennie. Well when one is busy, that's all you can manage. The three year mark might just draw you back to the desk. See you then :-)
Smiles,

Julia Dunnit said...

yeah but it's different for you - you gotta play with all the products you sell AND come up with your own designs...its no wonder to me that you don't have tidy time..alhtough there's no doubt that as an untidy crafter, I do get a real sense of wanting to get going when my table is sorted and clear!

MrsC.x said...

no wonder you have no time to tidy up with running a company and coming up with ideas yourself

tfs happy WOYWW have a fabby week Mrs.C.xx #65

All right, so now that you have publicly announced it you will have to do it..... Good luck and just think how much better you'll feel!!
Happy WOYWW #34

VonnyK said...

Just move a few things and pile a little higher and you will have loads of room to play. Why waste all that time cleaning up when you can have fun :)

A creative desk again?! Well you should see my flloor that's why my desk is so tidy....it's on the floor!!!in heaps hugs trace x 97ish

Ann B said...

There comes a time to all crafters when we have to admit the only answer is a tidy, then we think again and see we can just pile a little, teeny bit more on top. Either that or sweep it all of with one dramatic gesture.
You know when archaeologists uncover layer after layer of artefacts in a roman house, well I reckon they were all crafters who swept things on the floor, building the levels up as they went.

I'm sure you can put your fingers on just what you need. I could never find anything if my desk was like that...but then I can lose a die on my desk and it will just lying there in plain view. I think it's an old lady thing! I love the windows and all that wonderful light coming in!

Jackie said...

Could be a fun thing to look under everyone's desk one week!!!!! This week under my desk is better than my desk!!
Look forward to seeing your ATC

I am happy to see that I am not the only one with a total mess in my craftroom! ;)
You have a good plan to present a tidy room for the 3rd Anniversary. I think I´ll make it to my plan as well.

Happy WOYWW!

Nothing like a good sorting out to get the old mojo juices flowing. Sandra #17

JoZart said...

I think so many of us are at the same stage as your desk. I am exactly the same and need a bomb under me but maybe Port Sunny will bring ideas and change... look forward to seeing you there but first I'm at Aintree tomorrow.
Take care and keep smiling!

So the floor tidying fairies dont go to your place either Jennie !

Happy WOYWW X

Sunshine Girl said...

Sorry you arent feeling creative at the moment - its very frustrating isnt it. I actually find a good tidy up does help - you end up coming across a bit of stash that you had either forgotten about or suddenly just look at and think "oooh I could try this with that" - so go on give it a go and see if it helps! Thanks for sharing - Sunshine Girl No. 20

Cardarian said...

Oh you have shown us nice creativity when I was at Ally Pally so you shouldn't complain! Your desk is full of interesting things !
I hope you can manage to tidy up and get creating again ( ha,ha if you think taht does the trick!
Hugs,
Cardarian

Karen said...

CraftygasheadZo said...

It's not messy it's intriguing! Proper crafty. Am using my WOYWW snooping as an excuse to munch my way through a bag of mini eggs! Take care Zo xx 77

Danielle said...

I couldn't keep things on the floor because my little puppies would have a field day stealing/playing with things. They already take my wool that they can reach from it's shelf. dani138

france charles said...

you're right: the floor is the biggest shelf, isn't it? ;)
have a happy tidyup week!

Elizabeth said...

Hi Jennie, just the act of tidying up can whip up the desire to craft, especially if you discover something you've forgotten among the piles of stuff. Hope you have a lovely creative week. Elizabeth x #113

Rachel K said...

I don't think you need to tidy. You have inches of space to create in! And I'm so glad I'm not the only one whose floor is a natural extension of their desk!

Good luck with the tidying.

kay said...

Princess Judy Palmer said...

I find the floor very useful when crafting. When you put stuff on the floor, it tends to stay there. You put stuff on a desk or a table, it could slide off. The floor is also there to catch you when you fall. I'm pro-floor. That said, I don't usually show mine off either. I actually pick it up fairly often as I have a cat with IBS and you never know when or where cat vomit will appear. There's nothing more sad than a project with cat upchuck on it. So maybe you need a cat! Or not. Your piles of mess look like they are filled with great things though, I'll give you that!

Tertia said...

My desk is such a tip this week, I actually was shamed into cleaning it up after I saw the photo.
Happy WOYWW

Hazel said...

I'm sure you know what's there and it won't take too long to tidy ... then you'll want to get it all out again! - (Hazel, #173) x

Redanne said...

Well, you never know what goodies you might find if you do have a tidy....Happy WOYWW, Anne #61

Peggy said...

Running a bit behind on my visits. looks like a fun desk to work on! Have a great WOYWW!

Spyder said...

My floor is knee deep in bits of cut paper and cut, really shoulda had a shiny floor rather than a carpet! Love your messy-ness! Thanks for my snoop! Have a great crafty week. HaPpY WoYwW!

BumbleVee said...

I must go back to re-read that post by Julia....

Liz Black said...

Ah that's a familiar scene ... me not you! The fun part is finding all those bits and pieces that you thought you'd lost and getting all creative again! Enjoy! Thanks for sharing. Liz at 194

okienurse said...

I started storing each project in a 12x12inch box of its own so all the bits and pieces are together so I could keep it all off the floor. Unfortunately I now have a forest of boxes taking up residence there! Good luck with the clean up! Vickie #41

fairy thoughts said...

yep even I would say you are due a bit of a tidy up soon . . . but hey who cares it's your space

Michelle Webb said...

Oooooo I just wanna have a good old rummage through your stuff, just to see what you have, I find myself craning my neck trying to see round the corner of your pic. Love all your stash. Michelle #82 on WOYWW

Carmen said...

Sweep to the side (or on the floor *g*) Tidying has to be the most boring job in the World... OK maybe 2nd most after ironing and after 5 minutes it's trashed again ;)
