WOYWW 05th October

Good morning peeps! Yes, I'm feeling a little better and life is getting back into some semblance of routine. I still have a lot of down days but in general I'm feeling a lot more positive than I was a few weeks ago. Thanks for bearing with me while I was AWOL!! I can see how many people visit this blog daily to see if I've updated and it is really lovely to see that you are keeping an eye out for me and my little life. Thanks!

Anyway, it's Wednesday again which means that people are linking up on Julia's blog for WOYWW again. I haven't taken part in aaaaages so I thought I'd get back into the swing of blogging again by showing you my desk. Or rather my whole room. I'm feeling like I need to shame myself publicly by showing you in all it's horrific glory. Maybe that will get me to actually go do something about the mess and sort it out!!!

Now, don't go screaming and running away.... okay?

On my desk is the remains of the stuff that got dumped after my new catalogue launch. The cutting mat which went downstairs for the event has made it back upstairs, but not actually back onto the desk. Unfortunately I actually need to clear the whole desk to put the mat back on. Sigh....

This is the rest of the room. As you can see, there's an awful lot of stuff that has just been dumped. And hubby has decided that the spare bed is an ideal place to put clean washing. Er, no! Clean washing goes back in the drawers please!! People have just started using the clothes straight out of the piles instead of putting it away first. All the boxes are from recent orders and they're waiting to be used for shipping ebay sales out to winning bidders. We've decided to clear out and sell some of our clutter, so far a pushchair and baby car seat have been sold. Neither of which needed boxes!! In the boxes in the foreground are all the stamp sets that got discontinued with the new catalogue. All 28 of them!! Ouch. I'm keeping a few of them for personal use simply because I like them, but the rest will also be sold off. What you can't see in this picture is the top of the chest of drawers or the windowsill. There is yet more gubbins piled on top of both of them!! I really must get this room sorted now, it's really frustrating me.

Do you find you can craft in a mess? Do you like things piled around you? Do you not mind the little snippy bits and the dribbled ink/paint all over your desk?? I don't! I feel like I need to tidy up BEFORE I do any crafting. Unfortunately that means that I'm always tidying and very rarely actually doing any crafting. Let me know about your mess/tidy crafting preferences in the box below!! Or even better, take a photo and come link up over on Julia's blog so we can all take a look.

See you soon and thanks for leaving a comment
