Workdesk #313

It is time for another workdesk reveal courtesy of Julia's Stamping Ground. I'll start by showing you my desk from this past weekend. I had mentioned that I have a new desk organizer to put in place.  To get it in place I had to start by doing things like this (commonly called 'the piled high method').
I took everything off the top of my desk and piled it on the working surface. My original plan had been to empty all the drawers and do an entire desk re-org but I didn't/don't/still don't have that kind of time.  So I worked around with piles and heaps and shoved different things in different drawers. As of this morning it looked like this:
Here is a close up of my new organizer.  I kept one of the little plastic drawers I had before but now that I've gotten things somewhat straightened up I don't think I'll need it (which is good because my goal was to get rid of those).
Everyone one of my desk drawers is a disaster now but that is another project for another day. It's interesting how much pointless junk I had on/in my desk.

The Fine Print: BTW, Charles isn't overly pleased with the extra space on top of my desk. It has enough room for two cats and who ever met a cat who wants to share?

I like the new organiser, it looks industrial and efficient. I'm reassured that you have drawers full of apparent junk; in this you are not alone. As for Charles...will he fight over this territory? Hmm, how very distracting!

I think I left a comment but, I don't see it so trying again. ( forgot if you have one of those verify things... if so feel free to delete the duplicate. ) just wanted to say I love the metal drawers on the top Judy. :)

You are looking so organised now, can you come and sort my desk out now....pretty please. I seem obsessed at accumulating useless junk!!!

You've done well to get this far, it's looking good. Most of us have to do it in stages, we all got far too much schtuff, and soooooo little time .....hope there's no cat fight later! xxx

It has to get worse before it gets better! I'm liking your new organiser...you're going to be so efficient, you'll be finishing your projects before you even start them , lol!!

Well, that looks as if it's on the way to being super organised, PJ!! I do love your antique desk. It's always intriguing, especially when it's embellished with kitties. Yes... guilty as charged.... I'm definitely a crazy cat lady - fully paid up member! However, my hubby's worse. I have to practically peel him and Beatrice apart in order to get anywhere near him lol!! I think I shall claim that as Shoshi's Law: "The smaller the project, the greater the stash required to make it." Lol! Thanks for your cheery comment - you can always make me smile even when I don't feel like it!!!

Happy WOYWW,

Hi Judy, lolled at your 'sorting' method! Works for me too. It's amazing how tidying & sorting create an almighty amount of mess and work. Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #9 xx

I had to laugh at your sorting Judy. I always say any clean-up looks worse right before it is finished. In fact, I know I've turned the corner when I can no longer stand the sight of things!

No, Judy, you are not the person I can't leave comments to. I drop by here a lot, so it was not you I was talking about. and yes, it is confusing, because one G+ person I can leave messages to and the next I can't. It's all in how they set up their comments. Thanks for the visit, too. Happy WOYWW from # 5.

Hi! And happy WOYWW! Love your roll top desk. My daughter has one that I help organize for her stamping and scrapping. So I got to play with hers! LOL

Looks great!

Greta said...

Bet you're going to enjoy your new organization, Judy. I keep saying I'm going to do it, but never do--LOL!

Enjoy! I reorganize a LOT but then tend to keep going back to where stuff WAS rather than where it moved to, and for a very long time after. Kinda defeats the purpose LOL!


Happy WOYWW!

Always nice to have a tidy work space but even nicer to make a total mess as you play! x Jo

Heidi Bound said...

I love your way of organizing! I like to do that, too. I spent some time a few years ago trying to get rid of my plastic organizers that were visible in my space. Fun to add pieces that are a little "different".

Angela Radford said...

Hi Judy, just about to say I was surprised to see your desk untidy and then found you'd tidied up! Hope you are having a good woyww and
happy crafting, Angela x 27

RosA said...

Pointless junk! Ha, I've got plenty of that around here :)
Now we are all waiting to see at least two kitties, happily or otherwise, sharing that desk space :)

Leslie Hanna said...

Who doesn't have pointless junk?

And I don't think we ever, EVER, stop organizing.

I'm down two weeks now lol.
Boy! You've been busy...
When was your Birthday?? You've talked about it and I've seen cards? But, no mention of when!!
