What's on my Workdesk Wednesday

Morning folks...yes it's Wednesday once again and nosey parker time....do I really have time to be rummaging around in everyone else's crafty spaces.....definitely not but it's fast becoming another addiction and it's all down to that lovely lady Julia over at WOYWW....does she know what she has started.    But I am not the only nosey parker out there judging by the number of folks throwing open the doors of their crafty rooms for the world and his wife to wander in and have a little snoop around.
So here's what on my workdesk today....

those yummy papers from Simply Create and delicious Hero Arts Butterfly stamps...

my "ashamed to show" Fiskars scissors all gunged up with tape but guaranteed to cut ribbon perfectly no matter how manky they are...and I am happy to report that Miss Neat Freak is back in residence again.....OK my desk is a tip but the other areas are looking all sparkly spick and span.....just the way I like it but how long will it last....


and just in case you are wondering what this is tucked away in the corner....
another of my addictions.....my choccy jar

The work has been set aside and it's playtime......with a bit of help from Lady Luck and a choc or two I am hoping this may turn into yet another challenge card....so pop back tomorrow to see if all has gone according to plan.  And yet again I have to apologise for not getting round to visiting everyone last week and unless I take to staying up all night I fear that even with the best of intentions in the world I am always going to fail miserably.
Catch up with you all tomorrow
Hugs Kath xxx

Those papers are yummy and I love how you have a choccie jar - mine would be empty in no time so can't have one on my desk.

Neat and tidy, Kath. Looks nothing like mine unfortunately! Lookin' forward to the card tomorrow and I need to get a candy jar on my desk very soon. I'm not sure why, but I always just run upstairs when I get the choco craving. Would be much easier if they were within arms reach!

Kat said...

I wondered what that was that looked like a "liquorice allsort"! Like the idea of a choccy jar. Maybe best not though - think my hips and tummy are big enough. Everything looks so neat....unlike my workspace lol!

Kath how do you manage to keep so many sweeties in your jar? Mine would be just full of wrappers.

I thought I hit all the desks last week, but after my "meltdown," I see I missed a few, including yours. So don't feel bad about not getting to everyone. I was tickled to see another "neat freak." I just can't stand clutter. I was wondering what is on your desk to the left of you cutter. I bet all the stampers, card makers, and scrapbookers know, though. Happy WOYWW.

*** Suzi B *** said...

Oh wow Kath how neat and tidy! I could never display my craft space It is I am so untidy and disorganised you would be amazed at the fact that I create anything or find it even :)

the work in progress looks gorgeous ... I'll be back to see how it all came together.

Sheila said...

Great organization. Wish I had room in my space for a sewing machine.

Denise said...

Hi Kath & Buddy
Your desk looks very interesting Kath, hope you'll share the finished product with us cos i love the butterfly. The chocolate jar is very nice but no good to me so rest assured i won't try nicking it. i drastically need to shed some ounces ready for my knee op so starting tomorrow all our house is on a rosemay conely diet. Hope you don't mind me asking "but has Buddy got a treat jar on your desk?
See ya tomorrow - Hugs and tickles behind the ears - Denise & Meg.

JoZart said...

That is sheer relaxation calm and sanity. It's a wonder you can even look at mine( or some of the others) ever! Try cleaning those scissors with Olbas oil or Eucalyptus... works a treat!
