WOYWW 122

Tuesday has rolled away into the forgotten mists of time... and Wednesday heralds a new day and a new time...
Ah, yes... getting all lyrical and happy because the hot weather has disappeared, and we're forecast rain later. WooHoo! I like the rain... it IS Autumn, after all.
So, Once again the Stamping Ground (and her High Craftiness, Julia) is hosting the join-in fun that sends crafters worldwide scurrying online to peek and pry at each other's desks! Is there greater nosey-parker fun to be had? Probably not! :)
I will admit that my desk (as it is often of late) is somewhat boring. I've picked up this nasty little habit since moving up to my little room... it's called 'tidiness'. This 'tidiness' problem is NOT conducive to crafting for long periods of time. The room isn't actually finished yet... and I've hoovered already. Twice. Oh, the shame! What kind of crafter am I to lift a vaccuum cleaner, when there's heat guns, hot glue, and pretty paper to play with? On the other hand, the quiet and solitude up here has meant that I'm able to close the door, craft all day, and ignore the telephone and the front door bell (unless I'm expecting a crafting delivery, of course *lol*).
Business cards in their holder (just because!), an empty carousel with scor-tape piled on top, a cold cup of coffee... and my Christmas Cottage :)
As you can see, I'm trying to concentrate on the mini-album to fit inside the cottage, and have decided to work (at the moment) just with the DoCrafts "Noel" paperline. I have been even tidier... the papers are kept on the keyboard tray under the desktop (it's a modified computer desk) when I am working with them - so I put them on top of the desk, to fill a tidy space, just before I photographed it. How terribly sad is that? 
My trusty laptop computer, which is always present on my desk, is always a bit of a surprise to me... because I don't really do digital crafting. Maybe it's just always there in anticipation of seeing a lot of more interesting workdesks than mine each Wednesday :)

So... although I am going out Wednesday, am very busy Thursday, and have been invited to another craft-club on Friday (whew!) I will try to have a good ol' pry into as many desks as I can (and hopefully Blogger will have sorted out all those pesky problems to do with commenting!). In the meantime... this post will (as usual) be scheduled to blog itself sometime in the early hours of Wednesday.

Happy Crafting To ALL!!!
... and have an absolutely DIVINE and WONDERFUL
"What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday?"

I want to catch the tidy bug, although not the hoovering one. More importantly, though, what a fabbie cottage. Gorgeous. Can't wait to see the album.

I agree with almost everything you've said, except...hoovering twice?? Why?!! Mind you, I hate housework but like things to be neat, One of life's paradoxes..sigh.. LOVE your little cottage, so cute, bet the mini album is going to be just as lovely :)

I envy your neat and tidiness. Had to have a further nosey on your previous post and the Christmas cottage. It's beautiful. Enjoy the rest of your crafty days this week.

oh my goodness! Vacuumed twice already...pride in ownership...this too shall pass...not the pride in ownership but the need to hoover all the time. Enjoy your new space. Vickie

Debs Willis said...

That IS tidy, and I love the cottage......but.....and I say this with love and affection....GET HELP FOR YOUR VACUUMING ADDICTION!!!!

Scratch that, come round to my place and feed your addiction lol lol :-) As we're both in Southampton maybe we can work out a trade and I can pay you in paper scraps and embellies?????? (tee hee!)

Happy WOYWW, and thanks for your kind words on my blog

Sian said...

I am not a tidy crafter. But you have shamed me into thinking about taking the vacuum cleaner upstairs. I can't hear the door upstairs either - nothing more frustrating than coming down and finding a card through the letterbox!

butlersabroad said...

Lol, you can come round and clear up my hovel for me if you like! Lovely to have a little space all of your own finally. Beautiful Christmas house, and I bought those same papers whilst in England last week!

Hugs

sutty said...

Soooo tidy - you could send some to me :) The little house looks great - can't wait to see the mini with it too :)

Elizabeth said...

Happy WOYWW day to you. I enjoyed reading your post so thanks for sharing your oh so tidy work space this week ... love your Christmas cottage. Have a great week. Elizabeth x #75

SueH said...

You’re going to have to break that habit of tidiness Bubbles….it’s not allowed!
Actually, I wish mine looked like that more often but it just never happens. Even after making a concerted effort to put everything away and start with a ‘clear’ desk, within tin minutes it’s back looking as if I hadn’t touched it.

Loving the little Christmas Cottage, it looks great in those scrummy papers.
Happy Crafting!

Ooh you've changed location since my last visit! Enjoy your new space and I'm sure the need to vacuum will pass!

dawn said...

I would love to have my own space and shut out all the noise. How wonderful for you. My desk looks pretty messy right now so I love your desk today and wish it was mine. Have fun being busy this week. Enjoy the fall weather, that always makes me want to craft.

okienurse said...

very interesting desk. Glad to hear you have your own space now to escape to! It seems almost decadent to run and hide from the world! Thanks for sharing. Vickie

Craftgirl said...

I never seem to get a tidy desk or floor for that matter. Thanks for sharing and for stopping by.
Have a great weekend.

Oh how I've laughed at you needing help for the vacuum cleaner addiction! And yay, I too have that Noel paper pad - isn't it gorgeous. Can't wait to see what you come up with honey - bound to be something amazing as always. Di xx

Julia Dunnit said...

It's not sad, it's impressive! But I did laugh. I'm late enough to have seen the FAB shelves, totally get why you got the giggles, that would have been me! And I would have had white gloss in my hair for a week!!
Do you mind me saying - I find your blog hard to read n this background - would you consider a larger font size? Now that's sad!!
You can take the card off the table now...ta!!

Yummy yummy craft papers on your desk, they are gorgeous and the cottage is amazing. Kezzy x
