What's on Your Workdesk?

I cannot believe it is Wednesday already.  Last week I showed you what my work area looked like as I started working on four Valentines for my grand kids. Today I will show you how my area looked when I finished and I am not showing you the whole mess. I tend to craft all over my room.  I think within the heart of every card maker is one big mess maker!


I am telling you - I roam all over my room leaving bits of paper, glue and Stickles in my path.


Now this still isn't as bad as it gets and if you could see where I cut my paper - you would weep!
Today, I am going to have time to look at YOUR desk!  Did anyone see those beautiful socks on those tiny feet?

Laura said...

Love the large picture of your space -- glad I clicked to make it bigger (yup, nosy.) Your cards are sweet.

I have some of those Jenni Bowlin letters and haven't done anything with them yet -- I should put them out where I'll see them. :)

Hi Sandy,
Looks clean compared to mine. lol!! 5 min. after I clean mine it is back to destroyed. I have super close quarters so everything is a jumble. My son says I have a Stamp stoe in my craft room and all jumbled together in a very small dining room, or used to be dining room. I love your view! It would be so beautiful looking out those windows to see that view. You are a lucky lady.

Craftgirl said...

Wow you look super organised. I seem to work on a pile of stuff. LOL
Thanks for stopping by. Awesome that you had a year in Italy. I have been 3 times and hopefully will get to Rome again later in the year.
Happy WOYWW

This is like playing Where's Waldo. I'm looking for the socks on the feet and my little eye spies a container with something pinkish in it, could be tiny feet. Am I warm?
If I'm wrong, break it to me gently that I'm blind.

You're not messy, just arrayed organization!

Hugs,
Lisa "You Made Me Love You"..LOL!

Love to see your workdesk! It's very tidy compared to mine!

And did you see that Tim has 12 tags of 2012 now? So you don't have to wait till christmas! It's now every month, with the theme of that month or a special technique.

Hazel said...

Doesn't look messy at all - just a creative busy-ness (Hazel, WOYW #136) x

Christina C. said...

My friend, keeping a craft room tidy means not doing anything!!!!! There is no way I can keep mine organized!
It is an ongoing disaster area!!!!!!!!!

Thanks for stopping by my blog :) Your craft area is wonderful. I would LOVE to have a view like yours from my desk (huge windows, nature, and copics!) :p

Sue from Oregon said...

Awww Sandy...you room is quite tidy by my standards. I had to laugh at the thought of you roaming around, trashing your room LOL! I do the same thing...and I never show my floor!

Lisa said...

How do you keep your work desk so tidy and organized?!! Love the little valentine's

Chrizette said...

Time is a bit on the little side this week - I long for my desk :) Thank you for hopping by my WOYWW this week (all all your lovely comments).

I think you just can't avoid it...being creative and searching for just the right element or embellie...does make a mess. After a day of crafting, mine looks a fright!

cathylynn said...

Well look at this! It's so nice to see where you create your gorgeous cards. Hey Sandy I'm still looking for those socks and I'd also like to know about that Copic storage which is totally awesome with all that storage space. Wow I did notice all those binders that I bet are full of goodies. I love your space!!!!!
Hugs, Cathy

Jean said...

This is great.. love it when I see someone one else makes a mess while card making, but bet you clean it up before you start another one!!! But your play area still looks great and so neat even though you think it loks messy, not half as bad as mine.. an I haven't made a card.. just get new stuff and trying to put it up...
Hugs, Jean

Emily said...

I know what you mean about wandering around with crafty bits and pieces, I tend to do that all over the house! You do seem to have the essentials in place, though, for a tidy work area - I can see lots of shelves and files/folders available for storage. Mmm, something tells me I will be busy this weekend!!

Linda said...

Wow if this is messy i would hate to see neat!!!!! Wow your work area looks so relaxing with those big windows!!!!!! This could very well be my summer retreat!!!!!! Have a great weekend my friend!!!!!

Gibmiss said...

Iulia said...

MG, that's what you call a mess? I have everything rolling on the floor and beds and everywhere when I'[m working on something; it takes me more time to clean up than to actually make a card; the truth is our hobby is definitely a messy one...lol. Plus now idea why I never find what I need; seeing pictures with craftrooms all over blogland it just makes me feel like I need to give up cause having an organised workplace it's not for me:) I barely have time to make something:)
Anyways, congrats from me for keeping everything in such an organised form:)
Hugs, Iulia

Shelby said...

Stop with the beautiful windows already!!! Kidding of course it's just envy rearing it's ugly head again!

Wow Sandy I love your crafty area, its looks so bright and looks like you have a gorgeous outlook from the windows. I am jealous, my window is too high to see out of:( Oh and of course you can copy my princess castle card:)

butlersabroad said...

So when you say "offline" you don't really mean offline, do you, lol! Been busy doing genealogy research too this week in my spare time, but that's not always interesting to many people so I don't mention it!

Hugs

Heather Huggins said...

Sandy, Your are very neat, and from what I can see in your photos, you are also very organized. I love the little cubbyhole storage on your desk, I've never seen one like this and it looks quite handy. I myself would be afraid to show my Art Room on the web, sometimes when I'm done creating it looks like a cyclone went though it.

I also want to add that you do beautiful work and so glad I came to visit.
