WOYWW #193

The tidyness that was my desk has disappeared... in fact, my whole craft room looks a mess. It looks like Hobbycraft exploded in my room!
I'm mid-project, working 'on the fly' and making things up as I go along and that's my excuse for the mess on my desk that I'm revealing for WOYWW. It could be worse though... I could NOT have a Big Shot sat on my desk :) Yes, Hubby let me have my birthday package early and I have been playing with my new toys.
A little close-up of the first page of the new mini-album I'm working on... it's using the "Kitschy Kitchen" collection - but instead of a recipe book, I'm making a family album.
I just got out a load of things that I thought might match and have strewn them around - including ribbons and packets of embellishments hung up under my shelves!
So much for the resolution idea of "A tidy desk is a creative desk" *lol*
Right... I'm off to peek at some other desks - and if you don't have a clue what's going on here (*gasp*) then pop on over to see Julia at The Stamping Ground and join in with "What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday".

Awesome looking card. Now there could be worse things then having Hobby World explode in your room! MIne looks like it is is imploding and getting smaller while stuff is getting bigger! Have fun creating and crafting. Thanks for sharing. Vickie #17

A hoobycraft explosion in the craft room sounds like a crafter dream, as long as lots of lovely new stash burst out onto our desks. Your desk is quite neat actually, and your project looks lovely.

It could have been The Range that exploded and that would have been far worse (they have furniture too).
Not that untidy, just busy and I love your suspended ribbons.
Happy WOYWW and thanks for visiting me.
Hugs, Neet (who went back to bed, hence being late commenting) xx

A messy dek is a creative desk! Enjoy your BS. ZEFFY #74

Carole said...

You call that messy??? No way...I know what an explosion looks like...and that's when I clean up. I like the Kitschy Kitchen idea. #101

Claire said...

i think that's a pretty tidy desk, myself - even the shelves underneath!

Linda said...

Enjoy playing with the Big Shot on what looks like quite a tidy desk to me.

Chrysalis said...

My craft room itself is a WIP, which means I've exploded - all over the dining table - with the scrapbook I'm trying to put together. Good job DH is so understanding!! Keep up the good work and have a great week. Chris x

MiniOwner said...

Oh no that certainly isn't true - an untidy desk is a creative desk! Your projects look lovely. Happy Wednesday. :o)

Well it's amazing how we learn to just push back and get on, and I do think that eventually you cave and have to tidy, but while the ideas are flowing, just go with it, and enjoy! I like the way you've got things out that might go with what you have in mind, that's very far thinking if you ask me.

Elizabeth said...

You know, I do that ... get a load of stuff out that I think will work together on a project and end up working in such a clutter that I have have a sort out before I carry on! Like your ribbon storage. Elizabeth xx (not WOYWWing but still having to visit :)

Hammers said...

Hey your desk isn't too bad. I got my big shot at Christmas..fun times ahead for you. Happy WOYWW Cx #108

scrappymo! said...

Great that you got your Big Shot early...they are so fabulous!

I work that way too...you have to pull everything you think will work out...otherwise you can't create to your full potential! hahaha

I think your desk looks great considering you are making a minibook!

MaryH said...

Hi Bubbles, Happy WOYWW and also HAPPY BIRTHDAY! You'll love your Big Shot...great Hubby to give it to you early so you can use it! Your desk still looks very tidy, and you have a lot of things going on. You must be very organized to keep it so neat with all that activity. Thanks for sharing. Hope your 'actual' birthday will be a wonderful day for you. Mary H #136

I am off to Hobbycraft tomorrow at the suggestion of DH, supposedly to find suitable boxes for some of my stamps. I have no doubt something else will fall off the shelves into my bag at some stage. I am another who tends to craft on the fly. Things grow - like Topsy. Trouble is, the heaps that need to be put away also grow - like Everest. Have a great week. xx Maggie #8

Tertia said...




lucky you to get a big shot. I don't think your space is messy at all, it looks very creative to me, but then... I work at my best in an absolute mess, so what do I know?
Happy very belated WOYWW!
