WOYWW week 144



What a difference a day makes!!!
No, not the weather - my desk - although the same could definitely be said for the weather!
Yesterday my desk was perfectly tidy - but then I unpacked the craft shopping I did on Monday!
As all you regulars will know, Wednesday is the day for all us nosy parkers to get their fill of other people's
craft desks! WOYWW , hosted by Julia over at the Stamping Ground, is THE place to be on a Wednesday.

So what's on my desk today! All the usual, pens, scissors, glue etc., and then some lovely bits I bought with some Birthday money! I got the gorgeous fence die, a tree die, an embossing folder, some card and a scrapbook kit that contains 12 sheets of gorgeous girly papers - a real bargain at £1.99 - and I've still got some money left!!!
On the shelf above my desk is my ribbon - I've tried many ways of storing ribbon but none have really worked for me- until now! I bought a basket full of jars, the type you would use for pickles, etc., and now store all my odd bits colour by colour!
 The reels are stored easily on a rail hanging between the shelf brackets.
Now I've just got 3 more drawers full of ribbon left to sort out - think I'm addicted!
So that's it from me, no works in progress today but I do plan on having a craft day as I have to wait in all day for delivery of new beds so watch this space!
Can't wait to see what's on your desk!
Thanks for looking.

  12. Love the new birthday bits...I got $ for my birthday too! I haven't spent it yet but must admit it is burning a hole in my pocket.
    One of the local scrapbook stores (I have 3 huge ones near me...all a 15 minute drive away)has 25% off the Memory Box Dies. Oh, how they are calling to me. They have 40 and 50% off one item coupons all the time, but always exclude Memory Box, Martha stuff and Spellbinders
    I am going away with DH to Vancouver Island at 5 am tomorrow! Hopefully they have the ones I want left when we return late Friday. They never go on sale and are so popular here that when the new dies arrive, they announce by email the time and date they will be on the shelf (usually noon)and people start arriving about 30 minutes early. It is a hoot!
    I am not holding my breath that the ones I want be still be there. But i will check in on Friday just in case.

    Have fun playing with your new stash.

    Hopefully I don't gain any weight while we are away! Eating in restaurants makes it so much harder to control the fat grams etc. I have a game plan so hope it works!
