WOYWW 190 - Cutting, cutting, cutting


Whoo hoo! It's Wednesday, so it's time for WOYWW, hosted by the wonderful Julia over at Stamping Ground.

If you are new to WOYWW, it's the time of the week where you get to look at craft desks from around the world - whatever state they are in.

As you can see my desk is a bit equipment heavy this week and seriously untidy!! I hardly ever leave my desk like this, but with the snow, the epic journey to work and the cold, I just haven't felt like tidying...don't judge me...

I decided to follow Julia's twofer post from WOYWW 189 and give you bonus desk pictures. The main photo is of my entire desk and I thought you might not be able to see the detail (this is the best bit of WOYWW for me - the nosing at the detail..), so here are 3 more photos.

Left Side -

Some boxes full of odd bits and bobs - papers, embellishments, etc, on top of the boxes are some anniversary cards that I thought I'd finished, but now think they should have a greeting - advice please. You can also see some paper twine (which I love and it's from Poundland!), Sizzix die cut flowers and Scottie Dog die cuts, the flower punches from last week and a small selection of pro-markers, tape, stamps - aaaaaaargh!! Why is there so much and this is ONE side of my desk....

Middle -

The Big Shot, the new journal layout - just peeking out behind that is my set of Xcut tag dies, my stack of ribbon, in the background propped against the glue pots is a little New Baby gift I am playing with - you can just see the blue felt 'Y' against the patterned paper. On top of the big shot to the right are some magnetic shims I am trying out (£2 on sale) - so far so good I really like them.

Right Side -

Good old ATG + glasses on top, Sizzix packaging....more new stuff (oops), scissors, my desktop recycling bin that needs emptying, my paper trimmer, various punches and inks and just poking out from under the Sizzix packaging is my beloved Versamark black ink pad - what on earth would I do without you?

How on earth did my desk get so messy?! To reward you for your patience and to prove I do not just buy new goodies and that I do actually craft :) I took a photo showing of the Scottie Dog card I am planning for a boy birthday.

Cute right? I'm also hoping to make a few of these for sale on the website...which needs updating with the Valentine's Day stuff...this weekend for sure.

Happy WOYWW and thanks for your patience today.

  8. Such a lot of stuff. Thanks for the extra photos, I love seeing the details. The heart card looks fab as is. The scottie card looks like another good one also.

  9. Lots going on...you are a bit like me in that I like to have lots of projects going at once...I get bored too easily! teehee

    I think the hearts do need a sentiment. If they are to sell in your shop, I have a suggestion...For an anniversary I imediately think of 2 intertwined hearts and then a sentiment.

    Your scottie dog card is so adorable...he would look so cute with a little tag hanging from his collar that said Happy birthday or whatever...sort of like a dog tag IRL.

    1. Hey thanks, I will be adding a sentiment, totally agree with you. We are totally on the same wavelength, wait until you see the finished card..

  10. Back again...forgot to say thanks for visiting and yes they are glass jars. I fell in love with them and luckily they are from the dollar store...when it was still only a dollar. They came in large (bottom ro) medium (I don't have any) and small (the second row). There is actually a thrid row on top that are tiny candy jars...they house my teensy flowers. I am on a mission this year to make tons of flower cards as I have thousands of flowers! They are out of style to card makers...but my girls some and raid my stash for 20 or 30 cards at a time...they are delighted with a bunch of flowers and a sentiment...I plan to churn out lots of those this year!

    1. The magnetic shims are great and really handy when using smallish dies.

  18. thanks for visiting my workdesk - and I could be of help (with my "wall of stuff") trying to convince your husband that you need a real craft room, not part of your living room! Good luck. CarolCel #121
