WOYWW and under it........

Ha ha - not really - see below. I couldn't resist taking a picture when I had a good clean up at the weekend-you may never see it like this again!
Since I have been visiting other WOYWWs I realised a lot of you store stuff under the desk. As I don't actually sit with my legs under it when crafting I have joined in - a bit of reorganisation means I can actually step back a bit further from the desk to take this shot, showing my clear drawers - and the striped cardboard ones house my finished cards.
Can you see my new mug, I think it looks very Cath Kidston but is actually Tesco! Two for £3.50 the other one I got has hearts on it which marries two of my passions nicely (mugs and hearts). On the desk is a new image I got from someone on ebay, because after seeing it on someone's blog, I couldn't get this particular rubber romance image - my neighbour has a pair of slippers just like it and will love a card with it on. I was going to use Kiki Coffee time but this one is even better. I also have my goodies from Sistah Susie Sugar Die Cut Dreams shop, with a few extras and a RAK - she is as sweet as her name. You can also see my other new stamps - from the Kraftin Kimmies Tea Time range. Best of all is my new OTT LITE lamp! I saw it on Ann of Flutterby Crafter's desk last week and she recommended it as being a good one. I got mine from ebay for 29.99 - everywhere else it was 39.99 so pleased with that. It really does give a true daylight feel and I've decided my eyes deserve it.

Hi Linby,
He's shaking his head again. Says it's like an iceberg - 7/8 ths of it under the surface. He just doesn't understand.

Hi Linby

Happy crafting

Loved the snoop this week. At least you have a desk you don't get your legs under to work at...

Pam said...

It doesn't hurt to have a tidy up now and again, means more space to mess up!!! Hugs Pam x

Sarah said...

How brave of you to show us under your desk, under my desk stays firmly under wraps LOL I never know what is going to end up there.

Susie Sugar said...

You have a nice clear space to work today my space is shrinking as I have been crafting all day today I think one needs to have a tidy tomorrow (that one being me !! lol)
I ordered 2 different pads of websters pages so they should be here tomorrow ..can't wait.
I love the dress makers dummy stamps on your shelf they are cool.
Thanks for giving my shop a toot sis you rock
Hugs Susie xx

Paula Gale said...

yep - love the mug Lynn... there is so much going on on your desk that i made myself dizzy trying to focus... you're right - Susie is as sweet as sugar - she's such a generous lovely lady bless her - i don't think there is a mean crafter about - everyone is uber lovely.

Must say mind, that the before pic is a trifle more tidy that the after one.

I'm so glad you put that second photo on as I was disappointed at first!!

Loving the busy desk xxx

Woaaaaaa you have some serious stuff there!!

Glen said...

I just love a good nosey and your desk is eye candy Linby. Lots of luvverly bits and bobs. I especially like the dressmaker's dummy stamp too. In fact, one of the ladies at Ally Pally made me a metal tag with the same stamp. It's so cute. Thank you for leaving me a lovely comment on my blog and for becoming a follower. I appreciate it. ~Glen~

Draws for your finished cards, I would love to be that organised that I have that many finished cards that would fill some draws LOL. Well done you. Tracy Evans (www.craftaddicts-tracyevans.blogspot.com)

I love seeing messy desks ...I feel I have soul mates. I glad that I know that object is a light ...noticed it before on other desks closed and thought it was a 'Soda Stream' ....doh

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

You re going to love your OTT light. I can't live without mine. You have a work desk, though. It hit me that I don't utilize my space under my workbench enough. Thanks for pointing that out.

Sorry I'm so late visiting, and on my first ever WOYWW. Unexpected company interrupted my computer time today. I'll be back, that's for sure.

Mandy - Crafty Angel said...

well done on all your organising..its looks great! everyone has those lovely day light lamps...think I need to invest!

hugs mandyxx

Esme said...

Ahhh you can never have enough mugs! Or enough tea to fill them! I had nowhere near enough tea yesterday (only one cup between 9am and 4pm - not good) - hmm...think I'll stick the kettle on now!!

Ahhh another Mug addict. I knew I wasn't the only one.:)

butlersabroad said...

A good clean up is like a good soul cleanse, doesn't matter if you mess it up again, but I think it's important to do it once in a while! Love the mug too!

Hugs

Debra said...

Love the mess - it gives me a chance to snoop!

flutterbycrafter said...

Lovely workspace, glad to see you've utilised under your desk. Glad you managed to get the light.

Cher~ said...

As much as I would love to be a neat freak, I do think it is fun sometimes to clean it all up and then mess it up. It shows creativity is happening! Enjoy all the new stuff. I finally ordered an OTT lite (they were on sale at Joann.com last week) and mine should arrive today. Can't wait.

The Inky Minx said...

great before and after shots

Liverpool Lou (Anne) said...

Glad the studying is over Lin, more time to craft hehe. As for WIPs and UFOs I suppose it's open to debate when a WIP becomes a UFO :)
