WOYW?W #94

Hi - I'm a newbie. The lovely Hayley introduced me to WOWWW over at Julia's Stamping Ground and I've decided to play along because it would make me TIDY up my desk properly each week as I would be too ashamed to share just how messy my desk gets and how messy it usually is! Very often I end up working in a 6" square workspace or on the floor - which is covered to an inch of its life too! This is really tidy for me - I can tell you it took me 3days to sort out the mess - 3 full rubbish sacks later and this is the result! So does my desk look staged?.....lol I guess so!

I'm making some chocolate boxes - will post completed project in another article. Am working on a bendy card - it's been on my shelf half completed for weeks and weeks as my mojo deserted me and I had other deadlines to meet!

To the top left of my desk is a whole bunch of new stamp sets which I have now got desk space for now that it's more or less tidy! They are there ready to be inked and to get creative with as I have to prep for an event on the 30th. Better put my skates on I've got just 1 week till D-Day!


  1. Welcome to WOYWW hope you enjoy snoping and seeing lots creative desks and getting lots onspiration.Whihc is what mi need right now my mojo has gone walkies...lol
    See you love the stampin up stamps as much as me just finding the time to use them ..lol
    Happy wedensday

  19. Welcome to your first WOYWW, I was like you at first, I thought there's no way I can show the real mess - and then I realised that everyone else's desk was pretty much the same as mine - a mess. Good luck with the chocolate boxes.
    Happy WOYWW

  27. Messy desks and floors give us all more to snoop at and pick apart so don't be afraid of showing us your worst! We certainly won't yell at you or tell you to clean it up, we'll most likely have stash envy! Welcome too btw.

  28. Welcome to the Wednesday Nosey! Dont worry about your desk looking messey - that is a sign of creativeness. I notice we are all intrigued by your spice jars!! Gonna have a peek at your sale goodies. I love Stampin up stuff but noone sells in my neck of hte woods!

  29. Welcome to WOYWW, but be warned, its addictive! At least you get to clean your desk every now and then and don't worry, you will soon show us your mess. We all do once we feel comfortable in this wacky group and realise that messy desks are a sign of creativity!
    Happy belated WOYWW
