I hope you don't mind a bit of a shock this early in the morning, I thought that I was doing quite well with keeping on top of my desk until someone with a fresh pairs of eyes looked at it, and was horrified!
So prepare yourselves, I'm going to share my workspace with you.......
I know what you're thinking, all that room and I'm working in a tiny area to one side of my desk! In my defence I think the rest of my craft space is relatively tidy, I have storage boxes, with the colour families of paper, each in it's own little folder. My DSP each has it's own 12x12 folder, all marked up. In the corner, I have a display area, with things people have made for me as well as projects I have showed for 'Make and Takes', I really like having a place to display projects....Honestly I do, it's all on the left hand side just out of shot. Will have to show you the rest soon.
Now for the messy part...my desk. Ok starting Left to right, Top left is my birthday book, I really don't know where I'd be without this baby, it has pockets for each month, so when I've made the cards in advance I know exactly where they are! In the heart shaped wire baskets are (most) of my ribbons, next to that my CD player. Sat on the top of the CD player is my cat Salem, at this point he was frantically swishing his tail at a bird that was teasing him through the window.
In front of the CD player is a stack of scraps of paper, and NEW stamps! Finally just in view in the far right is my Big Shot machine, I LOVE this piece of equipment, it one of those things that make me think, 'what did I do before I had it?' Ooohh I nearly forgot along the window sill, are some of my stamp sets, my retired ones are taking over the white drawers, on the left and my clear ones are in a drawer on the right.
I hope you've enjoyed looking around my very messy desk, xx
