I Tidyed up for WOYWW #152

Greetings oh fellow WOYWW'ers...
....(that's What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday for my non-fellow Woyww'ers--a kind of fun and odd in the very best sense of the word opportunity to go snoopy about other people's workspaces which Julia Dunnitt hosts each week on her blog, Stamping Ground)

I'm still in quarantine with my ear shingles, Ramsay Hunt Syndrome which is getting more than old. However....I have had lots of time to play and watch You Tube. My new addiction. Oh, it's bad. Whew....

So anyway, my work space was getting smaller and smaller as I zoomed from project to project (did I mention they treat this with steroids?) so finally yesterday I thought I might tidy up a bit.

Pretty impressive, huh?

The small pile to the right is paper for a possible mini-album for my daughter's prom with her boyfriend; the pile to the right are letters which have been painted and stickled for some banner desk plaques/cards which I started playing with last week for a Simon Says Stamp Challenge which you can see  here. The pile in the middle is for my next project.

This is what it looked like about 5 milliseconds after I took the first picture:

And this is what the other table in the Fun Room looked like. I'm really into mini-albums right now which seems really odd to me, but at least they are functional. I think it's fun playing with all the paper too. And it's quick and easy - not requiring too much concentration from my addled brain right now,

For a quick tour around this same Fun Room wall, I show you:


Lastly, Alaska time is eight hours earlier than Greenwich Mean Time, which means when it's 10:00 pm there, it's only 2:00 pm here....which is why I always am, and always will be at the tale end of the posts. C'est la vie.

Thanks again Julia for your good humor and great idea of What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday.

  2. Love all your storage. As for the desk keeping tidy, it doesn't take long for it to get 'busy' again - thanks for sharing - Hazel, WOYWW #10 x

  3. I have had shingles that sent me blind it was in the eyes. termporary thank goodness as I got to it within the first 12 hours so viral medication was available but this is new for me ear shingles, suppose it is roughly the same area. Knocked me around for weekes on end. I do hope you are feeling better now. Keep smiling.

    Oh love the tidy desk, now have fun and mess it up again.

  7. Hi Sara, sorry your shingles is still bugging you, I hope you feel better soon. Thanks for the tour of your creative haven. I spotted a fab Grinch sitting on your shelves - I am a big Dr Seuss fan, in fact I painted a mural in my loo of cat in the hat and the East and West Beasts. I think I might have to add the grumpy Grinch! I am still pottering about visiting folk as I didn't get much time yesterday. Have fun making a creative mess! WOYWW Hugs Helen 64

  12. You have a great work space, thanks for the tour! I hope you are felling better soon! Linda #175

  13. Personally, I like the messy appearance your desk took on immediately after snapping the first picture. It looks more home to me :) I hope you recover soon...Alaska...that's one of those places my husband threatens we are going to move to because he's tired of you love it there? Happy WOYWW on THursday #130

  14. I LOVE all the storage! How wonderful! I have to laugh that you tidied up and moments later it looked like tornado alley! Now I know I'm not the only one!
    have a great week!

  15. Lovely co-ordinating pastel shades of storage! Your desk looks nice and busy, hope you create some great stuff. Love the fact you call it your 'Fun Room' :0) I call my studio the 'scriptorium' 'cause I'm a writer and love words! Have a fab week, Deb # 124

  16. Isn't it amazing how quickly a tidy desk can become an untidy desk again?! It all looks like you're having fun anyway! I hope you're feeling better now!
