Desk Day!

I haven't joined What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday in a long time. That's because by Wednesday, Hump Day, the Middle of the Workweek Day my desk is usually pretty clean. But this time I have a glorious mess to share with y'all.
True confession time--that was taken on Monday afternoon when I having a playdate with myself. By Monday evening it looked like this:
Yep, it's all cleaned up and cat proofed. I changed the angle of this second photo so you can admire my new shelving unit. It holds so many wonderful things right there at my fingertips!
Above is a quickie card I threw together with found items (some of you might call them snippets). The embossed piece was in my stash, as was the hunk of fat soft yard and the card topper. It just all fell into place. And no, it didn't take all of the mess shown above to make it (but close).

The Fine Print: Card topper by Club Scrap, embossing folder might be Tim Holtz (it's from a friend) and the fat soft yarn is from the fat soft yarn store.

Great looking crafty space. Girl I think you have about as many stamps from Stampin' UP! as I do! I am thinking about selling some of the ones I never use or have never used! It has been a busy summer and I haven't done much crafting or even web surfing. I rejoined WOYWW a couple weeks ago and remembered how much I enjoyed it. Hope you have a great week and have fun crafting. Vickie aka Okienurse #6

Hi Judy, I can't believe it's so long since you were last around. Work is such a pain and is always getting in the way of stuff we want to do but at least you found some time for crafting. I'm pleased we got to see your desk busy and tidy,(note I avoid the word messy Lol!)
Thanks for the visit to mine and happy woyww, Angela x

Enjoyed seeing WOYWW - even messy, it doesn't look all that untidy. I'm amazed that you were able to clean it all up for Wednesday, after making such a cute card. Love your shelving unit, and it looks very organized as well. The ef on the pretty horse card really sets the image off so nicely. Love the chunky yarn too. Your craft room looks so organized...wish mine did! TFS

Your desk looks pretty tidy to me Judy - compared to mine that is!
A super card, a lovely embossed background.

I'm always envious of organized people :) Your room looks tidy even when your desk looks busy! Love the card - anything with horses floats my boat :)

Shoshi said...

Love your creative space, Judy - great storage unit, and I always love seeing your big old fashioned roll-top desk, especially if it's adorned with kitties. I hope your kitties are all OK! Thank you for your lovely enthusiastic comment - so glad you enjoyed all the stuff on my post this week!

Happy WOYWW,

Love your so called messy desk Princess J - You would have a conniption fit if you saw mine. Love your wonderful shelving unit!! As for the card it is a wonderful masculine one - and your fine print had me giggling about the fat soft yarn!!
Are your kitty's really that mischievous that they would 'play' on a messy desk??

LesleyG said...

Wow, all those found elements coordinate perfectly! Love your storage unit, and your desk didn't look messy, well not really messy xxx

Actually, the great thing about Deskers is that no one actually cares if you have a clean desk or not! It's the fact that you're there sharing your cards :-D. Love that new unit, I can just imagine how you've got all your stuff neatly stored in there. I have Shelf Envy!!!

Hi Judy,

I've been MIA for a very long time. It looks like you moved your desk around. It looks very functional with your new bookshelves right at your fingertips.

Nice card made of snippets!!


BJ said...

Love your horse Bits and Bobs card super job. Great storage shelves too.

I'm way behind this week, stuff started up and I got totally exhausted by Wednesday night!

Thanks for visiting me BJ#15

Neet said...

Just out of hospital hence the lateness of my visit.
Love the card you put together with the "bits and pieces" - a happy time finding all those things that matched so perfectly.
Thanks for your visit.
Hugs, Neet 10 xx

Hey!! Good to see you again! I think a lot of us have had either blogging or crafting fatigue. Some of us "old guard" pop up from time to time and I'm trying to make more effort to craft. I'm glad I don't have to cat proof like you do - our cat doesn't seem in the slightest bit interested in playing in my craft room!

Don't worry about a bare desk - and we'll always forgive a Monday pic, I'm sure.

I love the card you've thrown together from odds and ends. It looks perfect. Amazing how we sometimes have scraps that just fit together perfectly...

Happy WOYWW to you!

Loll, you should have seen my studio when I was through playing this afternoon! Add glitter to that! Love your organization and the awesome card! What a great topper and the embossing makes me think of those old Westerns when the horses were galloping off into the sunset!!

Greta said...

I'm jealous of your great craft room! Neat card--love the use of that embossing folder, Judy!
