I know us Brits like to talk about the weather but boy oh boy what glorious sunshine we are having right now!  I've barely been in my craft room this week due to the sun and other general franticness but I did manage another card (which I forgot to photograph) and to begin another page in my Devon album.  I tend to leave the opposite page in sight (the one that you can see on the desk there) so that I can choose coordinating colours even though its not a double page spread, if that makes sense.

I realise this looks fairly tidy to some people and a total mess to others so I thought I would share some other images of the mess in my craft room.

Spot the difference?

There is a new cup of tea in the second shot!  Management made it for me in between shots but then I promptly forgot about it and it went cold :-(

A close up of the mess on the desk.  You can see the scrap of paper that I put in each completed page after I have blogged it.

Various piles to my left and in the floor.  The bright pink file under the wonderful Amy Tangerine album is actually for Parent Governor business which I was supposed to be doing this week.... ooops...

Things that desperately need putting away on the surfaces near the printer and die-cutting area.

The basket that is normally on my desk that needs a good sort out.

The side view of my desk that gives you a sense of scale and mess building up on the sides.

More piles on the floor.  The yellow box is full of stuff that needs sorting and putting in its rightful place.  I shall get around to it one day.  I could do with a week of finishing things off and putting things away really!

But alas the house does not clean itself nor does the food cook itself or the clothes wash themselves or stories write themselves whatever whatever.  But no doubt I will find time to be creative at some point this week, even if its just with excuses of what I haven't hoovered ;-)

This post is brought to you in conjunction with What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday.  Clear here for more details.

Bye for now

  4. I've got a few plies of paper to sort out this morning, so you have inspired me! I tend to spread out onto the floor too and once I have to step over stuff to get to my desk, that's when I know I have to take action. Good pictures.

  5. this looks such a light, airy space - ideal for creating with all your wonderful supplies!
    happy WOYWW and have a fun week :)

  8. Hey, I'd forgotten about that craft bag I made for you! Glad to see that it's doing sterling service still :-)
    Lovely LOs..I like the joined up circles very much!
    Hugs, LLJ 45 xxxx

  9. My table always looks like that too!

  10. I loved having a peek at your craft space, Lisa-Jane. I'm glad I'm not alone in craft-clutter, but it's a beautiful thing, don't you think? :o)

  11. Happy WOYWW!

    I still think you are tidier than me! Cold tea, that is familiar, in fact I think I have a pot of cold lemon balm tea I made earlier so I better go drink some now!

  12. What a fabulous work room! I love the jars all lined up with the coloured buttons!
    Thanks for stopping by and for your kind comment,

  13. Tidy or untidy it's still a gorgeous room. Wouldn't it be lovely to have time to finish and put stuff away, it's one of my little dreams :) x

  14. Looks like a proper work-in-progress room
