What's on your work desk?

Well peeps, Wednesday has crept up on us once again and it's time to show my messy desk to the world again! Not sure what I'm talking about? Then take a look at Julia's Stamping Ground and all will be revealed.

I'm currently making an album for a lovely couple who are celebrating their Ruby wedding anniversary this weekend so I will carry on working late until it's finished, by Friday at the latest :0 


I wish I was a tidy worker but I have tried, believe me, but I can't work unless everything is out around me lol (oh and I need the ever present coffee on my desk) Even when I had the shop and tried desperately to keep it tidy, it didn't work. I do sort everything and put stuff away before I plough through the next order though......then the mess all starts again :)


My target for this week is to get through every post on WOYWW, something I haven't done yet.


Thanks for looking and I will be back later.

Life's too short to tidy

Considering the amount of work going on the desk really isn't that untidy you know, unless of course, you're not showing us all of it! I'd love to come and help organise your desk, but you do know that I'd have to keep everything I touch,lol!! I can see you've still got some snow outside too.

Hugs

What a lovely present for a Ruby Wedding! We all work in different ways and yours doesn't look that messy to me, lol!
I'm knitting my third item for Wrap Up a Kid, will do another beanie hat and then I'll send off the first package. Do you want me to send it to you or straight to the charity?

Hello Jackie:) Thanks for visiting my blog. Messy = creativity. I make a mess but I always clean it up too otherwise I can't start the next project.

Angie said...

That album is looking really good. I wouldn't call that a mess. I had to jump over a heap of stuff just to get to my computer this morning. At least you have everything you need close at hand.
Have a great week.

Julia Dunnit said...

I'm the same....can't work tidy to save my life. But nor can i work in front of the a screen - too distracting, so weak willed!!! Lovely page you're working on there, what a wonderful gift it will be.

Chrizette said...

Thank you for visiting my WOYWW this week! Since Wednesday, I have lost my desk under all the mess!! I definately have to do a bit of spring cleaning! I am so jealous of your view!!

I never do tidy - just creating! Hope you are on time - it's Friday already....and we all lov 'stuff'!Thanks for letting us look in and peek at your desk... Sarah at 7

Sherry Edwards said...

I hope your Ruby Wedding album is almost finished. I know what you mean about having to have a cup of coffee nearby - but I can't work in a mess, well I can, but have to obsessively tidy up after me .... why can't I be like that with the rest of the house though!

Thanks for visiting my desk already :)

Elizabeth said...

I'm not sure this is in any way reassuring to you but there are disadvantages to being tidy when crafting. I tidy everything away as I go so often find that I have to get something out yet again because I haven't thought ahead. In the end it takes me twice as long to complete projects just because I'm a neatnik ... if I left things out I'd finish sooner ... hope this makes you feel better :) Thanks for popping in and leaving a comment - it's much appreciated. Hope you have a lovely weekend. Elizabeth x #2

Bridget Larsen said...

I dont think I ever get to put away after every project, I just get less and less space then I get frustrated and clean up, I love your sunny aspect view. Goodluck with visiting every one I am now up to 91-yours lol

Seeing your laptop reminds me I need one! Can't be doing with trekking back and forth from room to room all the time!

lisa said...

I'm just the same, work in a mess, tidy up and start messing it all up again. It's the only way!!!
Hope you got your Album finished, what a lovely gift
Happy WOYWW
