WOYWW - Happy Desk Day!

Ah, I despair sometimes.  My desk.  Look at the state of it!

You'd think with it being a big desk I'd be able to keep a little area clear.  I have a theory that whatever the size of desk - even half a mile long - I would still manage to make it all messy!

So what you are seeing is; counterfeit kit, washi, ribbon piles, tools that haven't been put back, piles of paper that should be in the kit box and other assorted mess ;)

Thanks for stopping by


  1. Just like a goldfish....the bigger the bowl the bigger you grow 😃 it's a lovely light workspace.

  2. Its true, no matter how much space we have, we will fill it, and end up crafting in a space the size of the card we are making! LOL. Have a great week, Hugs. Shaz #38 xxx

  3. As long as you are happily crafting don't worry!! I am still trying to get some order in my room after re-decorating! x Jo

  4. Counterfeit kit?? Is there something you're not telling us?! Lol :-). Love your madly messy, creative space :-)
    Hugs, LLJ 23 xx

    1. No no, it's all above board! is a monthly 'put your own scrapbook kit together from your unused stash because we can't afford to have a monthly kit club subscription' kind of group :)

  5. A very impressive collection of washi tapes you have there! Which reminds me, I need to get some more! They're so useful for collaging! zsuzsa @ InkyDinkyDoodle #50

  6. May your desk be messy and happy always. The sight of a clean desk is the sign of a sick mind! My theory and I am sticking to it!
    No matter what size your desk is you will always find yourself working a space only 1" bigger than your project!
    Now as for my purchases, I had been saving up to have a good spend in US since Christmas, by restricting what I bought so I flipping well deserved it! Not stopping now though as those C stamps and stencil were bought after I got back!! OOps! And the reason why Hubby was carrying some was that he had a hard shell case and fitted the 12 x 12 pads in perfectly! Only two of those so not an issue! I was carrying his hat in my carry on!

  7. I actually do notice a tiny little spot that you could probably work on (making an inchy?! *lol*) but I think you're right... however big the desk may be, some (most) people would just use that too and get everything on the desk... never mind, it works for you isn't it? And I love to take a look at it! Happy crafting, happy woyww and a hug from Holland! Marit #58

  8. That is so funny--I always think the same thing, no matter how much space I have I'll fill it up! Happy WOYWW! Sandy Leigh #34

  9. Certainly you have been busy:) I love all the things to look at.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier.

    Happy WOYWW

  10. It's true the more space you have the more you fill it with. I don't think though that your desk looks all that bad. Anne x #27

  11. I agree, the bigger the desk, the bigger the mess! But you have a lovely desk. I like that shelf above it to exhibit your work.
    Thank you for letting me peep over your shoulder.
    Have a good week,
    a hug and God bless,

  12. I fear it is true, the more space you have the more you fill it though my house has expanding walls Lol! or so my husband says.
    Have a great week and happy crafting, Angela x 41

  13. Wow, you certainly have one or two washi tapes there. I think the more mess the more creative (that's why I'm having trouble. I cleaned). I love the little canvasses on your shelf, they are really pretty.
    Have a great week,
    Von #25

  14. I'm not sure how it happens, but on my desk the area available for crafting just shrinks and shrinks!!! Ugh! Silly desk - I need SPACE to move & create! Hang in there!!!

    Happy Crafting!

  15. It's a lovely desk, Laura - and I love the collection of washi tapes. I've been very adventurous, and just ordered my first six tapes! Have a great week, Chris # 16

  16. Doesn't look too bad to me, Laura! However, the trouble is, the bigger the desk, the bigger the potential for mess. I know from experience! I am trying to reorganise things a bit in my ARTHaven now, and that should help prevent the dumping ground syndrome a bit.

    Thanks for your visit and your nice comment. I so agree with you about the same stuff being marketed again with different applicators... TH did a good video tut on how to decant distress stains into mini-misters and I am perfectly happy to do that. Anyway, even if I wanted to spend a lot of money on an entire new collection of DSs I haven't got anywhere convenient to keep them! As for the rest of his stuff, I have got quite a bit but I don't do his challenges, and tend to mix and match the stuff with other things so it doesn't get too samey. I don't want all my work to shout "Tim Holtz" however much I might like the stuff! I definitely couldn't do without distress inks, anyway!

    I'm afraid my facial expressions have not changed for the better with the "improved" flavour of the Gaviscon. It's still revolting!!

    Glad you like my felt poppies. They now have nice shiny beads in the centre and are attached to a hair clip. I shall be blogging about it soon.

    Happy belated WOYWW,

  17. Thanks for the visit already. I am late to visit as I had a self inflicted deadline to achieve...Your desk looks like mine and mine is half a mile long, so I have more mess!

  18. Ah Laura, and my theory is that however much or little space - I'll use it and leave it untidy! however untidy you think yours is, it always looks so welcoming and cheerful. And frankly, making counterfeit kits just causes me to have EVERYTHING out, so again I say - what mess?!!


Thank you for taking the time to comment.
