Workdesk Wednesday

I haven't played along with Julia's What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday in quite awhile but I thought I would today to show you my lovely mess. I haven't been crafting much lately and I think the lack of desk space may be why.
That big pile of cards in the middle of my desk was up in one of the cubby holes but I pulled them down in search of a birthday card.  I have some new purchases on my desk--designer paper, matching dots, and matching washi tape (because a girl can't have too much washi tape).  There are stamps and dies lying about too and some magazines to be put away.
There are even more stamps and dies piled on the other side along with a whole bunch of paper that I don't even know what it all is.  The old SU set I pulled out after seeing some great inspiration on a blog and the new set is out so I could stamp a greeting in that birthday card I pulled out.
I found this cute piggy card on my desk the other day and wondered why I hadn't mailed it off to a deserving soul but when I looked inside it was stamped "Happy Easter" so that would be why it is still around. I made him at a make and take at the convention last month. 
The Fine Print: My new purchases of embellishment dots, paper and matching washi are by Doodlebug and you know you can't live without them. The pig was cut with one of those electronic machines and the background "paper" is really strips of washi tape.

I think we posted at the same time! ;) I love your piggy card! And you do the same thing I do, pull everything out looking for something, then we have a mess. I have a mess now with my photos! But I cleaned my up before I remembered about taking a photo for WOYWW! Have a great day!

You probably don't know this, but I have a little Princess Judy song that sings in my head whenever I see your name . . . aren't you glad I'm not a stalker or something?? :P

What a cute card! Fab design and colours... I do hope you don't think your desk counts as messy? If so, you'd be appalled at the state of mine ;o) Hugs, Lisa x

I love your little piggy card. Could you rescue him by adding a plate to cover the original stamped message? I think the storms we have suffered this last winter just show us that we can never really tame Mother Nature, she will always win in the end. Thank you for your visit and your lovely comments. Have a good week. xx Maggie #28

The washi tape paper is a neat trick! Because when layers of card are used to mount a topper, I always think what a waste of card underneath - I can be SUCH a cheapskate sometimes, lol!!
Your desk is magnificent in its mayhem!!
Hugs, LLJ 45 xx

Fun stamp desk and look at all the fun colorful items you have sitting on it!!!

CUTE card! Love that pretty flower print pig and sweet ribbon!

That pig card is just gorgeous!! Any chance of re-assigning it so you can still send it to some deserving soul?? Csan you cover the sentiment and put in a different one?
It's a great desk - just like mine - half a dozen things going on.
Thanks for visiting already - and thanks for your best wishes to hubby. Well, the bride has just been round - tried on the green dress - and - gulp, swallow - given the go ahead. It's the REAL fabric from now on in!!! Help - can I leave the planet do you think?
Have a great week.

wee wee wee, i love the little piggy. thanks for the tip on the washi tape under a die cut. so going to try that.

1. Your definition of "lack of space" and mine are quite different. I see AT LEAST a 6x6 space there. And some table is showing on the right side.

2. Since you've said "a girl can never have too much washi tape", I've added you to my will.

3. Pig card with Happy Easter on the inside = why I never stamp on the inside. I would have refused to do it at the make & take. I'm a rebel like that.

4. Pig background paper = strips of washi tape? LOVE it! Look ma: no seams!!!

5. And I do NOT need more Doodlebug stuff.

6. PS: I can't play WOYWW because my entire craft room is in bags stacked up in my hallway. Perhaps I should post that? Ya think?

Irish Cherokee said...

Wow! Right now my mess is everywhere not just the desk. My DW says I'm creating WOW cards. I think a WOW mess to go with them. Can't find anything any more. LOL. I think.

Irish Cherokee said...

Almost forgot. Love that card. Good one for Easter.

Chrysalis said...

Hope you're able to clear enough space to get stuck back into crafting real soon. Love the piggy!! Have a great week, Chris # 35

Krisha said...

Well, I do still see some space on your desk, but for YOU I know it is heaped up with stuff. :)

Nice Easter card, I had to laugh, cause I found a card the other day and wondered the same thing.....yep it said Happy Easter on the inside. I usually leave the indies blank until I use them, so I was really surprised.

It's still the coolest desk in WOYWW, QJ! And your piggie card for Easter is adorable!! Hugs, Darnell #26

Cherie said...

The more messy my desk is, the less creative I am after awhile. Crafty messes are ok, but piles of stuff that get tossed on top do not encourage my mojo! That pig is so cute and now you have one less Easter card to make.

Nicky said...
