WOYWW 5th May


Another Wednesday is here, and its that time again to show our desks to all you WOYWW'yers, so here is mine this morning.  I have been working on a couple of challenges this week, which is what you can see on my desk.  You can see this in more detail here.

Other than this challenge I have been spending most of my time sorting my room and starting the challenge for the anniversary of the WOYWW, which I can't show you yet as its not quite finished, oh and its not the anniversary yet LOL.

I have also spent most of the week, when I can in my garden.  Gardening is my first passion and if you would like a nose at my garden you can see pictures here.




 Also on my desk is a basket full of challenges I have completed, which will now be used for birthday cards for friends and relatives me thinks.  I agree with Julia though when last week she was saying that it's great to have everything to hand and not shut away in a cupboard.

So I have also been reorganising my room once again, it is becoming a full time job LOL.

If you look below you can see I have made another purchase, they are CD cabinets, but make great storage for my inkpads, this storage works great as all the inkpads I use frequently are right where I can reach them.



I will also store other items on this unit that I use every day but I think this will be my last purchase for my craft room, only because I'm running out of space to house cupboards LOL.

Well what else has been keeping me busy this week.  If you take a peek below you will see her, yes my little pug pup, Mitzi.

If you would like to see more fantastic desks and have a nose around take a look at Julia's blog here and enjoy.  Have a great Wednesday, Tracy x x








My little friend Mitzi.........

Aw how cute is Mitzi! Your room is just fab Tracy, I sure hope you realise my 'everyhting to hand' theory is based entirely on my slackattitude to tidying!
I really like the look of the piece on your desk this morning..

Jodene said...

Awww Mitzi is adorable! Looks like you've been busy too ... congrats on all of the finished challenges! It's great when you get a stash of cards together like that.

Mitzi is adorable. I love the piece on your work table. It is my style of art. When I first saw it, I thought it was a little art quilt.

You are right about needing to stay on top of organizing. It never stops, unless you want to deal with a mess. I'm totally impressed by your new CD cabinet. That's a great solution for ink pads.

Happy WOYWW.

Helen said...

Great trip round your room. I wish I had more space (don't we all!) My dream is to get UP off the floor and onto a DESK, lol!!

Helen said...
