WOYWW # 298

Today is "What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday?" once again! we are closing in on 300 posts over at Julia's page, where this all started! If you want to find out what this all is, go HERE!

Well, after last weeks horribly messy workdesk, where I had about 6 square inches of space to actually work, I decided to do something. Here's a reminder of my desk last week:

So I got to work, and cleared EVERYTHING off my desk, and started over. I'm in the middle of the cleaning frenzy (as I do have other things to do!) but finally I have more than a tiny little space to work!

I am working on my Donna Downey Art Journal page from her workshop that I am taking, not quite finished yet, but at least I can open the whole book and still have room!

This is the view to my left, that matches the "before" photo above:

And to my right:

 I now have both my Lazy Susans at my sides, before, they were awkward to get to. I even cleaned them out and re organised them! My big guillotine (under the clipboards) was supposed to stay uncluttered, I moved it away from right beside me where I have tendency to pile things up, but it has disappeared under clutter once again, but hopefully not for long!

Here are two cards I made, one for my brother's birthday, and one for Valentines day for hubby! The wolf is "Stampin' Up", an old set, and one of my favorite stamps that I use every year on hubby's card is the "amour", with "I love you" written across inside. I don't remember who makes it. I used one of my Pinterest pins for the idea for the Valentines card, but of course, it doesn't look at all like the pin!

Well, that's it for today! I will visit anyone with the last number the same as mine, and hopefully a few more if I have time! Have a Wonderful Wednesday!

We are on the same page today--I think I have about 10 inches of workspace and am now getting ready to clear it all off and start again! But I have often wanted one of those craft carousels like you have...maybe when they're on sale again. Thanks for your lovely visit! Sandy Leigh #45

You cleared your clutter the hard way. I just got another desk and started to mess that one up :) My guillotine has the same trouble. No matter where I put it, there always seems to be something covering it up. The cards are beautiful and I love the bright colours on your journal page.
Have a great week,
