So this is my desk late Tues afternoon, nothing much going on as was having a 'sort out' this afternoon (see previous post about die storage!). 

You can see some Stamposaurus stamps on die cuts ready for colouring. The car (Chitty Chitty bang bang to me!!) is sat on first edition 'new leaf' papers I'm planning to use as background. The other stamps are from Acid Drops & Whatnots, very funny men's stamps!!

Now for the photo of shame..... I don't normally show the right side of my desk cos its almost always a crapalanche, and today is no different, although it is a relatively small pile for me! This is why I need a sort out! (Those of a nervous disposition look away now!)

Everything is piled up with last used on top! Stamps to be put away, paper pads same, some tapestry needles, trimmer, sticky stuff, scissors etc. and underneath it all piles of stamps to be filed away. plus finished cards stacked up on top of printer waiting to be popped in the box. As you can see, it's slowly sliding to the left, where its started overlapping my craft mat!

Then to the right of my desk fan is my little snack corner lol :-). A satsuma (no idea how long that's been there!) and inside that cute little green parcel from my crafty friend Sarn is a granola bar that I'm saving for craft food emergencies! You know what I mean, when you need a boost but can't be assed to go to the kitchen!! :-)

Anyway, that's me for today. If you're wondering why I'm blathering on about my messy desk visit Julia's stamping ground for a tour of other less messy desks!

Thanks for stopping by

  1. Oooooer Debs, that really is some craft mountain :-) Can I see a ghostly you in the screen at the back of your dump/desk?

    Happy WOYWW,

    Di xx

  2. Lol, you really are a master of the Shove It to the Side technique! But what the heck, life's to short to be tidy all the time!
    Hope you're feeling better btw,
    Hugs, LLJ 12 xx

  3. WOW - I am seriously impressed at your willpower for NOT YET eating the "Eat Me" bar from weeks ago!

    Not so impressed with the desk you'll understand . . . my inner Neat Freak is freaking!

    Hugs, Sarn xxx

  4. well, in contrast to Sarn...I feel right at home. Although saving the Granola bar isn't in my psyche. If it's there, eat it - sums it up for me! Like very much that you have finished cards though - so what then, to the piles..they are productive piles!!

  5. That pile of stuff means you've been BUSY! :-)

    Happy creating and Happy Woyww,

  6. Love it! Scrapalanche - a new crafty word!! I have now tidied but that's exactly what I had this morning. Happy WOYWW Cindy #57

  7. Crapalanche! Love it ... so descriptive of my craft room!!! I have my dies stored on magnetic sheets in a plastic box I got from Crafter's Companion - at a fraction of the Totally Tiffany price. It's not perfect either but, as I don't have that many, it will do for now. Spotted a ghostly you, as described by Di, in the screen. That Granola Bar would not last long on my desk :) Hope you have a great week. Elizabeth x #45

  8. I love the made up word crapalanche too.... you should submit it to the oxford English dictionary. I always thought your desk was very tidy .... glad to see it is the same as mine... except I have piles. hehe
    I will be happy to do the blog hop thin gy thanks for thinking of me ...on the first reading I thought it was every week but I think it is just a one off... I will read it agsin or maybe you can send me the details
    have a good week

  9. What a the desk {{{shaking head}}} and the term crapalanche too! Just opened the closet door and all the crap rolled out so I equate to the term! Everyone needs an emergency snack stash when you are crafting...nonchocolate please! Have a great week! vickie #75

  10. Crapalanche is such a great word...we all have an area like that.

    You are so lucky to have someof those funny men's stamps...The always make me smile! Lucky girl...and may I say that your desk looks quite tidy!

  11. We will all be using the 'crapalanche' word in future, you know! Great desk shot for this week. Running late this week, Have a great week, Hugs. Shaz #23,xxx
