WOYWW 25th April '12

Ooh wow, it's Wednesday again! I know I say it every week, but it really has gone fast hasn't it? It never ceases to amaze me how quickly the week goes!!

So, if you're here from Julia's WOYWW then take a pew, you've been here before and know what to do. While you're at it, put the kettle on and help yourself to a cuppa. If you've wandered in here from Shimelle's latest class, then Welcome! This is a Meme I take part in most Wednesdays where we share what's been on our workdesk each week. It's free to join and we'd love to see your desks too!! Jump in any time on a Wednesday (or sometimes even a Thursday if you're a little late!!) and show us what you've been up to.

Now, to my desk....

Remember this?

Well, I did warn you that it wouldn't stay like this for long!! Here's what it's like today...

Take a closer look...

Okay, it looks like things have been dumped and not much crafting has been done. Well, that's where you'd be wrong! I've been crafting up a storm and loving every minute of it.

The inkpads are what's left over from my last crafty project. Some swaps that I did for a training event I went to on the weekend. The returned swaps are in the ziploc baggy waiting to be found a permanent home. The Stampin' Up! carrier bag has got all the goodies that I got in training. We did loads of crafting and I still came home with loads of the kit left. So I shall be having a play later tonight once I've finished blogging.

You can also see the latest copy of 'Simply Homemade' magazine which I've just started subscribing to. The subscribers gift was a large number of Letraset ProMarkers, which I hadn't tried before. Suffice it to say, I'm addicted!! I've been buying them left, right and centre since I got the free ones. I love my Stampin' Up markers, but they work on a completely different technique and produce a completely different effect. I'm loving the difference and think both sets will complement each other nicely. So far, I've bought quite a few to add to my collection so I've had to make some storage for them. I'll post tomorrow to show you how I did it!!

The other thing you can see on my desk there is my new phone... er, tablet.... okay, I'll call it a 'phablet' then.  It's the new Samsung Galaxy Note and it's huge! It's also amazing, awesome and brilliant. Okay, so I'm just a gadget geek, but I really do love this phablet.... or should that be fablet?!

So, what have you been up to on your desk? Show us! Join in at Julia's and let us see. I'm off to Julia's now to add myself to the list and have a hop around some of the other desks. See you tomorrow when I post a mini 'tutorial' on how I made my ProMarker storage!! (I actually remembered to take photo's throughout, for once!)

See you soon!


  1. wow that looks pristine even with the messed up version . . Siobhan 179

  2. Glad to see you are putting the new space to good use.

  3. Yep, the messy version is pretty clean. :) But perhaps you're like me. I have to do a bit of cleaning between projects or it gets out of control!! #183

  4. What an amazing space you have and even "messy" it's gorgeous. Love all your inks in their lovely carousel.
    Have fun with your markers.
    Happy WOYWW

  5. It's still tidy enough - just being used - thanks for letting us have a peep - (Hazel #173) x

  6. Ha, that desk is positively tidy compared to mine! :lol:

    Loving all the goodies. I love Promarkers too, aren't they fun? And addictive! :D Oh and if you think the Note is big, you should see my Galaxy Tab! :D

    Thanks for your comment on my blog... not moving anywhere as it happens... we moved house 2 years ago and it's taken us this long to get around to selling the old house! :lol:

  9. It is huge but not so big as to be embarrasing to take a call on - that's a good thing! You don't wanna be like phone jacker!!
    To be honest, your space doesn't lose any appeal for having a verysightly untidy desk..gracious, by the time the bag's been sorted away, there'snot much untidiness is there - no layers!! I like the way you've got the ribbon cards stowed..please explain the holding bits on the desk side?

  10. I love your workspace, looks super crafty to me! Take care, hope you enjoy this week's WOYWW, have been snooping in shifts but I'm getting there! Zo xx 77
