WOYWW #174

When is a desk not a desk???

When its a dumping ground for all the lovely new goodies you have. I know all of you who comment are amazed by the neatness of my desk and when I'm working it has to be that way or my brain can't function.

However (and here's the confession) it isn't always that way!
This was my desk last week... Why am I showing you last weeks desk I hear you ask? Well it's simply because whats on my desk this week needs to remain a secret for a couple more days and I thought you might like to see I can be messy too lol.

The red bag was on our desk at the retreat weekend I recently attended and was FULL of crafty goodies we would use over the weekend. Bags and boxes full of more crafty goodness from the shopping trips I took the crazy American on (well I couldn't let her get all the yumminess could I) and an old project from a retreat weekend I held here at home.

So as you can see it was a busy desk last week but I have to confess it didn't stay that way for long and I hope to be able to show you what I'm working on in the next couple of days.

Enjoy looking at the rest of the desks this week over at WOYWW

Till next time - Happy Crafting


  1. Love the decorated bag...wish i could be that tidy, but it's an impossibility. lovely organised desk:)

  2. I love that bag! Is that Stampin' Up! Fabric on the bow? Awesome. I think your desk still looks nice and neat just a little more stacked up if you will. Have a great week. Vickie #22

  12. Anytime part of the messiness is caused by new goodies, that's a great messiness to have!! I, too, have to remember to take my WOYWW picture quickly after a project is finished because 'boom' a minute later and I've cleaned it all up! I can't just move on without doing that. Have a great week! Darnell #120
