What's On Your Workdesk?

You show me yours and I'll show you mine?!  *waggles eyebrows*  Mine is very tidy and well-groomed right now.
That is because I cleaned off my desk in a desperate search for my 3x3 acrylic block and my small blue handled scissors.  Neither has been found yet and I may have to take this tidying thing further afield (like to inside drawers, tote bags, random containers, and the piles next to and on the table).  I am very proud of the fact that I cleared out the pile of papers that were taking over the right side of the desk.  I plan to tackle that pile on the left one of these days. It is quite exciting to have access to more desk space. 

Bird's eye view
Here are some projects I have been doing.  One is my May A Muse Studio calendar and the other is another card I want to make with some K & Company toppers that I have lying around (in the plastic bag in the white basket on my desk).  I made a card with a butterfly topper previously. I like to purchase the K & Company toppers and tend to use only a few from each package, so I'm trying to rectify that.  It's good to have goals.  Or anyway, people are always saying that.

Project in Progress
The Fine Print: If you know the whereabouts of my 3x3 acrylic block or my small blue handled scissors, please drop me a line since I'm on the verge of just throwing myself to the floor and pouting.  Flower shop, flower stand and row of flower stamps by A Muse Artstamps, cross stitch border by A Muse Studio. Bird topper by K & Company, papers by DCWV "Chateau Lavender."

So annoying when you loose something. Hope you find your stuff soon, and what a tidy desk you'll have too. BJ#18

forget how much I love your desk until I pop by and see it again.
2011 was the year of losing random things for me. I'd start by looking for one thing and find another and by the end of the year only one thing remained missing, my address book.

Nothing nicer than organising your piles

Take care

Claire said...

i just LOVE your desk.... it seems perfect in every way... *sigh*
i cannot believe it would hide your block and scissors - it must be too fine a desk to stoop to such a thing! did you pack/transport/lend them at all???
thank you for stopping by and leaving a lovely comment :)

Oooo! Nice and clean! I love your calendar page!

Jingle said...

I tried to email this in response to your comment, but it keeps turning away your email, so: I have that, too. It's made by Imaginesce and it is pretty good, although, I found you have to work quickly with delicate ribbon like silk to keep it from visibly burning the edges. It is GREAT for grosgrain and stuff, though. Seals it quite nicely. Basically, it just uses a hot wire to cut the ribbon.

I feel your pain. I am forever losing things now that I don't have a permanent desk to call home.
Necessity is certainly the mother of invention! I don't have a leaf punch and couldn't be bothered to set up the Bigshot, so a heart it was. Glad you like the idea :o)

Hi Princess Judy,

Oh my, your desk looks like it's calling my name. I still have a corner punch that I can't find.... what a bummer.

You asked what the round spindle thing is -- and you guessed right. It's a display for necklaces I bought from Amazon. The chains are long enough that they touch the table though. I have an idea and the Crafts Fair that I sell at isn't until November so I have plenty of time.

I love your May calendar by the way!!!

Hugs,
Kay #33

SuziesImaginarium said...

Love, love, love the calendar! Uh, I think your space is looking a little organized for me though...could you just throw some scraps around next week, that'll make me feel better :) Thanks for visiting me! #130

Tracy said...

I always say that when I can't find something I've put it in a safe place..... and it's still safe! ;) I hope you find them. Love the May calendar and for visiting! Happy WOYWW! Tracy #108

Look at you so neat and tidy!! I confess not being able to find things is the main reason I tidy. But it only takes about half an hour for me to be back working in 6 inches square. I lost an acrylic block yesterday - it slipped out of my hand as I p8icked it out of the tray I keep them in and slipped down between the two worktops. Can't see where it has gone, and I'm not about to deconstruct my work area for one acrylic block. But it bothers me, big time. Honestly you couldn't do it if you tried!! Thanks for popping in to see me, Cindy #65 (Love the calender page!!)

Nicky said...

I would love to come and root through you're desk to help find your missing things...that way I could really get into the thick of your stuff...It looks amazing.

So many drawers but so organised too.

Di said...

Waaaaaay too organised for me Judy, even with a runaway pair of scissors and acrylic block.........maybe they eloped? Hope you find 'em soon or you might end up with acrylic scissors. Di xx

Diana Evans said...

oh I do that all the time and then can't sleep thinking about where I put something!!! I love your workspace!!!! looks very inspiring!!!

Sandy said...

Zoomed in and had a good look but I cant see the scissors or the 3x3 block sorry. Love the calender its so cute with the little house and garden. Thanks for the lovely comment on my blog the mug tree is just so handy, seeings that I have had it so long but did not want to throw it away. I am so glad I found a reuse for it. Sandy :)

Sue from Oregon said...

Laughing over the fine print! I do hope your missing items turn up soon so you can calm down, quit cleaning and get back to the crafting LOL!

What a lovely tidy desk, I think my hubbie occasionally hides things to make me tidy up as he knows it I only when I can't find something I tidy my craft area. Hope you find them both soon. Hugs, Amanda #123

Angie said...

Hmm, I'm pretty sure you left them in that spot that you thought would be somewhere you'd remember you left them in! Also, I've left an award for you on my blog you might want to have a peek ;)

Gorgeous desk... soooo tidy I thought I had arrived at the wrong place.. as I was looking for the cat!! Have a happy week, Hugs May x x x#32

okienurse said...

great looking pictures of the crafting space and projects. Send me your address by email and I will send you some cut outs so you too can make grungy tags. I will send some stamped images too if you tell me what you would like! If I didn't have a good friend who owns a store I would have to have a sugar daddy also. Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog I enjoy reading them. Have a great week. Vickie #91

Queen Of Toys said...

Nice crafting space but I want productivity and mess, I think I will go and mess up mine now, yours is toooooo neat.

Thanks for sharing.

Nice clean desk, but the frustrations of misplacing is sometimes more than I can deal with. in the wee hrs playing catch up between storms. Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by.

sandra de said...

Lovely tidy desk and good luck finding the scissors . I think your cat looks very suspicious.

MaggieC said...

Hope you have found your missing treasures by now. Still, at least, there has been a silver lineing in finding your desk again, and who knows what else you will find in your searches. Thank you for your visits this week and your kind comments. All traces of our fallen tree have vanished. Another neighbour beat us to the useful wood for his fire, and the council came two days ago with their big shredder to removed the rest. Have a good week. xx Maggie#93

Neet said...

So neat and tidy, what a beautiful desk you have.
Love the work in progress, especially the calendar for May. Super duper!
Don't forget those rails for the punches.
Hugs, Neet #27 x

Angela Crandall said...

Hmmm...I clean my area so I can find stuff, too! lol It usually results in some areas being deep cleaned and 'new' stuff being (re)discovered!

Love in your 'about me' how you said, "...sometimes I sleep." Made me laugh!

Thanks so much for stopping by *last* WOYWW and leaving me a comment. I'm a little behind...

Happy Mother's Day!
