Workdesk Wednesday - WOYWW

Hello my fellow desk snoopers!  It is time to join in the insanity that is WOYWW. The Queen of this madness, Julia, is stuck in a crafting bog where the hands are not making what the brain envisions. I've been there, done that, tossed the results in the trash.  She is hoping that we'll have some finished product to spur her on.  Thanks to a Stamping Up Workshop, she's in luck here.

First the desk with piles of this and that and several unfinished project (don't look too close, Julia!)
Next the cards I made at last night's Stampin' Up workshop.
Check this out! As part of the WOYWW 3rd anniversary we did an ATC exchange and this gem came in the mail. I love the edging, it looks almost stitched.
By Barbara D Ramsey
Just for grins and giggles, here is a wide side view of my crafting space.
Julia asks that we keep our posts brief since there are so many desks to visit and so little time. If you have a chance though, and would like to check out the creative thought process of a schizophrenic princess, check out my post from Monday.

The Fine Print: All four cards made with Stampin' Up products--papers, stamps, inks, dies, punches, ribbons, etc. The star card's punches are retired and the greeting is computer generated.  I'm often asked why the one corner of my crafting space appears to have nothing in it.  It has two large covered cat litter boxes. When we've looked at new places to live, I always look for where the litter boxes would go first, because that's the pathetic life I live.

Hi Princess Judy,

You're funny. If I had cats I'd think about where the litter boxes would go -- I don't even have a cat (yet) and know exactly where I'd put the litter box in my existing home!

The cards look great! I'm sure you've given Julia some inspiration.

I didn't do a post today - my bad.....

That’s an amazing work space you have there Judy, so prey tell why it is that everything ends up on your desk! Mind you, that’s better than I manage because most of mine ends up on the floor under the table, Lol.

Loving the cards you made last night, very productive indeed!

Happy Crafting!

I am so so envious of your lovely big crafting space. It's always good to see new ideas for SU products. I'm sad that they retired that star punch before I signed up. Happy woyww xx

Sandy said...

Had a catch up on your blog. What a week you have had love all your cards love that mouse with the watermelon. Sandy :)

okienurse said...

great looking craft room! I love all the goodies on the wall behind your desk. I have tons of punches and store them in drawers right now. I used to store them in shoe bags over the door but...SU punches get heavy and the bags would rip and drop. Love the cards you made. Have a great week and thanks for commenting on my blog.

KatzElbows said...

Great space. That whole roll top desk ting could be brilliant for a messy cow like me!

I really like the butterfly card. Having the butterfly in the same colour and also embossed makes it look so cool.

take care, rachel #19

Angie said...

I love your space ... and your cards ...especially the rabbit one below ...was worth the effort.
When i craft i have to shut the cats out ...they like to

Sandra (Stamping For Pleasure) said...

Belated WOYWW visit!

So, er, do the cats know how to lift the covers on their litter trays then????

I checked your Monday post - had some good laughs! I received your wonderful ATCs in the mail yesterday - thank you! The one with the hearts is my favorite! :<) Thank you for posting a photo of mine - it was my first ATC (I still keep typing ACT) and I look at all of yours and am in amazement! Wishing you a happy day!

Think I say this every week, I really really want that roll top desk! LOL

Eliza said...

Alright I went and read the other post and yes I made a comment LOL Sometimes the best place for that paper in on the floor in the corner of the cupboard, at least you know where it is, others dont find their stuff in the most organized of craft spaces. Yes the storage area on the floor is good too, I use mine well and it can't fall on the floor off the desk or table because it is already on the floor LOL. Rather a safe place when you think about it. Keep up the humour I love it.

Your space is awesome, thanks for sharing a wide shot of it.

Happy crafting this week

I've not quite managed the art of keeping it brief yet.

Love your space always, and you've made some sweet cards - the SU products usually do deliver!

Bit late getting round to some folks this week, but hey, better late than... er...never?
