WOYWW




It's no wonder I haven't made anything lately!! Look at the state of my desk!!! What you can see is that I've partially emptied my ribbon drawers in order to put some ribbon into a repurposed sweetie jar - perhaps I will use more ribbon because I can actually see what I've got!!

You can also see three tins of stickers and rubber stamps that I bought last week from this rather fabulous stationery shop in Oxford.

Don't forget to visit other WOYWW desks over at the stamping ground!!!

- Posted from my iPhone - please 'scuse mistakes!!

Ooh I've been coveting those tinned stamps..yummy! Good luck with the ribbon - next week when I swing left, you'll see my ribbon jar!! Your desk looks like the desk of a busy WOYWWer to me!

Wipso said...

That's one very busy desk but I have a feelling you may need to push some of it aside to get to do some crafting :-)

Rosie said...

It is such FUN noseying around other people's spaces, and seeing what they've got/use. Enjoyed visiting your busy desk!

Helen said...

Now this is the sort of desk I recognise. (Not that I have a desk to work on, but the gap on the floor is similarly space-challenged!)

Kaz said...

Love the look of thhose tins you have. Your desk is loved and lived in xx

Liverpool Lou (Anne) said...

If you just move the scissors and the piece of paper underneath them, you'll have a few inches of space to work in hehe. Are they beads in the blue storage thingy?

Oh my word - your desk looks busy busy busy... I'd love to know where you get the sweet jars from.. My ribbon is in the jars with the funny fastenings (metal clasp things) from IKEA and were only 89p each which I thought was a bargain so I have one for each colour of ribbon - and it looks nice.

Looks like you've made nearly as much mess as we managed between us on Monday Night. Hugs Pam

Twiglet said...

Wipso and I have been using sweetie jars for ribbons etc - I even colour coordinated mine - makes it easy to choose from - thats if you can bare to part with any!!

LadyBug said...

Such a busy desk :) but lots to get you in that creative mind space :)

Toucan Scraps said...

want to see that ribbon jar when it's finished. I keep thinking about finding a better way of storing my tangled up ribbons.

Linby said...

love the stamps in the tins - does said stationery shop have an online site?? Not sure about ribbon jars for me as I think I might get my hand stuck in there, but definitely need better storage system than a big box which nowadays does not seem so big!

Linby said...

oh meant to say is that the storage system I saw on C&C the other day -wasn't sure I would have enough room to swing it around but thought it looked a good system.

Crafty Chris said...

Hi Sam good one but it wont stay like that for long, Christine x

Kaz said...

So pleased you got one at that bargain price, that's what I got mine for - fab isn't it?! xx

Kathy said...

I didn't show my drawers either - mainly because I was just way too smart for my own good and did my photo before visiting Julia's place! Ah well, one day I'll get it right....and on the right day!

Your desk looks very busy!

Kathy said...

ohhhh forgot to say...AWUMP = Avoiding Writing Up My Project!
for Thursday's Bubbly Scrumptious, in this case!

Chrissie said...

To publish anything from an iPhone is to warrant extreme admiration on my part, I wouldn't know where to start with one of those things. Well done you!
Your desk looks fairly normal to me... usually I don't have more than a couple of square inches in which to work! it's amazing what we manage isn't it!
I enjoyed my visit.

Ikki said...

This is me when I'm crafting. When I make one of my less is more cards - there is less on the card but more on the desk (or floor). ikki

Spyder said...

Busy busy busy!! NOT untidy at all, in fact, the perfect place to mould some wonderful creations!!
(But in my case...the mould in my coffee cup didn't create any thing other than a dead fly!)
