What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday

Morning folks...time to join in the fun over at WOYWW and what's on my workdesk today.....well I am having another tidy day....with his Lordship...the one and only Timmy Holtz.....labelling up all his Distress Inks so that I can pick out the one I want instead of hunting through the piles.....with the best intentions in the world they start off being stacked in colours but that only lasts a day or two and then they are all muddled up again.....sound familiar....


so a big thank you to my lovely bloggy bud Eveline who gave me the link for this PDF file from Ranger with all the ink colours so it's a case of print off....stick to a double sided sticky sheet....cut or punch out and hey presto...no more rummaging...well that's the theory..mind you the type is a little small....so I may have to upgrade my specs to the re-entry shield type lenses....
Now I am used to company in the cubbyhole...my bundle of furry golden deliciousness can usually be found snuggled up fast asleep on his big comfy cushion in the corner with me working along to the strains of doggy snores but....

not today......he is standing guard outside just waiting for the fattest pigeon on the planet to try a landing on the bird table...he has taken a real dislike to this sneaky thief and takes great delight in seeing him off....perhaps he's thinking he might get lucky and end up with pigeon pie for tea.....but I had a rather smaller visitor this morning....of the arachnid variety....and if you are of a nervous disposition...don't fret he is rather cute and not in the least bit scary....


and shock horror...my secret is out...there are cobwebs in the cubbyhole.....and my excuse is... I have enough to do keeping my workspace and the floor tidy...without dusting the ceiling too and he doesn't take up much space...doesn't snore so there are now 3 of us in the cubbyhole.  And what's the weather going to do today....at the moment the sky is blue..the sun is shining but hey ho who knows.    Yesterday we had all seasons in one day.....sun..rain...wind and this.....no not fall out from the Icelandic volcano...the real deal...big flaky white snowy stuff....
what happened to the scorching summer we were getting this year.
And enough of this filing and tidying lark....let's get back to some crafting.
Catch up with you all later
Hugs Kath xxx

Kath - Three's a crowd!, especially where spiders are concerned. I know they don't do any harm but even the thought of them brings me out in a cold sweat.
Hope your weather is more settled today.
Love and Hugs

pinky said...

Helen said...

Well, they're ok when they're that little, I suppose. May try out that labelling my DI's too...

Craft Addicts - Tracy Evans said...

How organised are you labelling your DI inks. Still not too keep on your new friend even if he is of the small type. Can't believe you had snow, great piccy though. Love the tidy desk. Tracy Evans x x

Sue said...

Lorraine said...

joey said...

Macpurp said...

we had hail...was really cold.

the spider needs to make sure he dont walk over and open ink pad...mind you, that might make sn interetsing backing paper.....

love teen x

Glen said...

Brrr....I HATE cold...I'm allergic to it, so I hope the weather isn't so bad today. Loved the snoop at your desk and thanks for the reminder. I have some labelling to do myself. ~Glen~

Jacqui said...

Bennachie was lying white this morning on my way to work - global warming gone mad!

WoodbankCrafts said...

Wow, you're so organised, I'm impressed. I do think about organising my stash......does that count?

Julia Dunnit said...

Ah your cubby looks very comfortable. Love the idea that buddy is hooliganising a pigeon, he'd love a day at my place! Am so with you on the labels and new glasses thing. Said to DH only yesterday that a prescription windscreen would be a huge help!

Lothian Crafts said...

Great idea to get your inks all labeled. Your desk is very tidy.

Tonje said...

I did the labelling when I first got mine and they are falling off now, so I will have to do it again, but it's a great idea.
Your new pet is creepy. Keep him, so you can use it on a Halloween card. He might be big and fat and be enought for an entire bakcground by the time Halloween comes up! lol

Vicki said...

OMG i'm not a spider fan - ewww!!!! Aww sweet dog - bless him, pigeon pie, i hope he gets it!!! good luck with the ink!!

Kathy said...

Great pics Kath - what a fab collection of DIs you have there. Could have lived without the spider photo, mind...

Sue said...

Hi Kath, I would much prefer a piccie of that golden delicious dog than that creepy crawly, hopefully he might move out when the weather warms up!! I can't believe you had snow! ooh and what a lot of lovely ink too, Happy Crafting, Sue xx

Paula Gale said...

eeeek: i'd have rather seen a pic of Buddy waiting for the pigeon than that creepy spider which may as well have been 10 foot tall :O(

What a great idea about the PDF file for the names of the inks - i didn;t know that existed - i'll come back and click on your link - cheers...

You don't happen to have two of any particular colour of DI's do you? I did a really stupid thing and ordered a colour that i'd already got (and not used) - i thought i'd add to the collection seeing as I was placing an order - instead of checking I went ahead and ordered one i'd got!!! Well, I have been out of it (thats my excuse LOL)

Liverpool Lou (Anne) said...

Are going for ALL the DIs or do you have them all? My friend used to put spiders in a cupboard rather than out in the cold - did she think they couldn't get under the door?

Wipso said...

I love your crafting space but I'm sorry to say I would have to evict your 8 legged friend before I would enjoy being in it.

Hels Sheridan said...

Spiders are a good sign hun, means you are devoting enough time to crafting and ignoring the H word ROFL Love love love your gorgeous doggy... so beautiful, I would love one for myself but think my AlfieCat would leave home LOL As for the SNOW!! In May!!! Tis cold here so please don't send it this way.. have a great day x

Becky Cornish said...

Love the idea of all your labelling but not loving your new guest to the cubby hole lol

Bee said...

Morning Kathy - my Harley wont tolerate the pigeons in his garden either, but he also likes to try catching the planes that take off from City airport too (its only a few miles away from us). Daft dog thinks he can leap 10,000feet in the air.

Would you like to come and sort my ink pads out next - the whole lot end up coming out as the one I need is always the last one I grab.

Hands to Work, Hearts to God said...

I'm super impressed at how organized you are! I also envy that stash of distress inks. I think I'll go around your blog and look at your work. Anyone with that stash is bound to be good! Patsy from

PS I have blog candy if you would like to have a go x

Candace said...

Leave the little spider where he is, he's doing no harm.

Love distress inks.....makes me wnat to go & order some more but sadly bank balance says no :0(

Cheryl said...

Jan said...

Lovin all that distress ink!

Linda Elbourne said...

Blimey it is cold here ... but snow??? In May??? Blimey! I got distracted by the yummy DI's and I can't actually remember what else I was going to say ... great tidy desk this week ... it was a pleasure to visit X

Kaz said...

What is this word dusting? I read it on Hels' blog too.
Yes the distress ink thing does sound familiar. If you ink the labels with the colour it might help identify it without the need for stronger specks xx

Pam said...

Oh is buddy going to be happy sharing? Good luck with the labelling. Hugs Pam x

HazelQ said...

Ohh Buddy's cushion, looks really comfortable :) it looks like you have new company there, I don't really like spiders but that one is tiny and it doesn't look poisonous :P

The Crafty Goat Girl said...

Hi Kath, that bed is just too comfy! Love your fairy-ring of distress inks, lol! Not too keen on the spider, bit smaller than the one I came across the other day, hugs Heidi xx

Jennie said...

oooh my kind of girl, can you come and label my inks please, cos I haven't a clue which one is which, and they come out of the box randomly when I am using them!
Thanks for showing

Mummylade said...

good job labelling them, it's so helpful. And wow, you got snow. I am of course a little snug now cause ours is finally gone =)

Darcy said...

I love your cubby hole, looks very inviting. I could just curl up on that cushion too...with one eye open for speedyiders!

I should label my inks too, thats a really good idea.

Spyder said...

iT's sooo tidy Kathy...I only has one TH...so there's no chance of not knowing what colour it is!!

weewiccababe said...

now I like spiders, its my other half that's a big girl when he spots one.
My excuse for not dusting away the cobwebs is that spiders catch all the nasty bugs and flies, so they're a good thing to have in the house

I'm not a huge fan of bugs, but I have to say that spider is pretty cute! Good thing he doesn't snore too! lol thanks for sharing!

Kat said...

Your desk looks pretty tidy to me. Stuff is always getting lost on mine or falling on the floor! My dog loves birds too, preferably between two slices of wholemeal lol!

Wow I'm loving all the Tim Holtz inkpads, I don't have any of his but now I'm seriously tempted! You may have made me spend more money on my crafty stash lol. x

Love the inkpads - but not the spider! Have a good week. S x

Diana said...

Wow that is A LOT of ink. And for a non-stamper like me, I would have no idea what to do with all that.
