It’s been one of those weeks and here’s the proof in all its glory.  NOT a very tidy desk this week at all – in fact, it’s as it very often is, lol. 


I made a few things really quickly, one after the other, and have been out nearly every day with John, so I left it as it was when I finished, without moving a thing or cleaning a stamp and haven’t touched it since. 


Now you see the chaos I really work in, he, he.  I did proudly display my latest creations in my beautiful WOYWW easel, though – you can see it, honestly, if you look VERY closely – he, he.   You can also see a card front I got from Vix yesterday – lovely colours – and I like those stamps – ooh, disaster!


I should probably be ashamed, but guess what?  I’m not, really.  I nearly always end up working this way, hunting for bits to use beforehand so that I have things to choose from and I rarely have more than this amount of space to work in – unless it’s something bigger, lol.  Even if I start with a totally tidy and clear desk (which is rare) it ends up looking like this.  It’s probably going to get worse before it gets better cos I won’t have time to tidy it but NEED to stamp soon or I’ll go nuts!  It won’t take me long to tidy that lot up when I’m ready.  Every item has its own home to go to.  If only you could see the floor…

Missing my desk at the moment cos I’m out and about a lot more than usual. In fact, I won’t be here on Wednesday morning, so I’m posting this early and hope to get to add it to the Blogroll before leaving in the morning!  Hope I’m forgiven..

If YOU’d like to see how other people work, then why not head on over to Julia’s Blog – Stamping Ground – to see the other entries.  In fact, why not join the merry throng, lol?  You’ll be amazed – and/or jealous – one of the two – AND it’s lots of fun!!

Probably won’t have chance to get to visit you all this week – sorry!!  I’ll try but it’s unlikely until John goes back to work.  Only 13 more days to go…

I found the easel and looks like maybe a couple of book marks or to be used on two different cards. Pretty card image with the blue and purple in front.

Gez said...

Love your little samples on your easel. I can't get the hang of eyelets... would love to but I run a mile!
Great shots of the red kites. Adore dragonflies so it was nice seeing them up close. It's amazing how many different ones are actually in this country. We've seen a couple of big ones lately in town? DD saw some big ones in Beijing! can't wait to show her your pics in the morning.
I love visiting your blog throughout the week. Your creations are inspiring.
Happy crafting. Gez.xx

I understand not being able to visit. My excuse was I had/have a computer virus. Still not fixed, but had to make sure I wasn't infecting anyone.

Sarah A said...

Hehe Cath, why is it most of the creative people I know work in chaos - I do too!!

Love the blossom card just peaking out at the back of your desk, beautiful colours!
