Wednesday, July 7

A Quick Look at my Desk!

WOYWW0707

It is Wednesday ... yes already ... so that means it is time for WOYWW!

Now there are a gazillion entries each week ... there is kind of a new rule ... we are encouraged by The Great One aka Julia to keep it brief :0)

I am a rule girl ... I likes rules ... well some rules anyways ... so ... this is my desk ... bit scruffy with lots missing!!! I did a class yesterday and loads of stuff is yet to be put away! I had a great time though ... blimey did we have a giggle ... Thank you ladies!!!

I have already broken my nekked easel rule ... you know ... always keep a card in there so I have one to hand for emergencies ... Doh! No card!!!

I have broken my calendar rule ... always have the correct date showing ... Doh! It is still on the 1st of July!!!

I have broken my Marie Osmond hand stitched tote rule ... put everything back once you have finished with it ... Doh! The tote is still in the boot of my car!!!

And this post is a bit longer than ... erm ... brief ... Doh! Sorry Julia!!!

I said I liked rules ... I did n't say I was very good at them!!! So c'mon spill ... what rules do you break???

I am off to visit y'all now so ...

Laters!!!

I like rules but I think I break a lot of them!

I try not to impose rules on myself or others. Then I don't have to break them. Of course, I fear part of my problem is I may not have the time to visit everyone for WOYWW this week. That's not really a rule, but a courtesy. And your desk looks rather forlorn, I think.

There's some interesting bits down in the right hand corner - yummy colours. The rest of it looks a bit like mine - just a tad untidy!

Off to do my post now.

rules I break: don't buy new paper until you've used the ones you have (especially in the same colour), don't leave the cap of the glue, don't eat or drink by the computer.

I'm not good with don'ts...

Rules are definitely meant to be broken but I'm not sure I can reveal my broken rules with all the world to see!!!!

Toucan Scraps said...

Have fun breaking more rules this week, just don't break the Law OK we want to see you again.

Twiglet said...

I love your earlier post projects - can I say that on WOYWW or is that breaking the rules - lol

Sid said...

Great shot, love all your stuff!

Doone said...

I break the rule of thumb and usually take exceptions to the rules, but accept they may help establish a cohesive society - but one thing is for sure - Craft Rules Okay....

Andrea - Wales, UK said...

Fab post as always...How boring would life be if we stuck to the rules??

peggy aplSEEDS said...

LOL! uh oh, i broke the rule about short posts!

Anonymous said...

Linda, how come none of your 'lush' bean cans are in evidence? They are my most favourite!

Angie said...

Go on admit it ...you only make rules so you can break them you little rebel lolm
I had to laugh at the calender bit ...DD is always moaning that I dont turn from the previous month until halfway throught the next ..on my kitchen calender. I'm not really a rule breaker but I do often say I'll do something and then dont.

Heather x said...

*hugs* Heather x

butlersabroad said...

Bah, if you take no notice of the rules to begin with you don't have to worry when you break them!

Hugs

angeleef said...

And yet, considering how my post looks, this is VERY brief!

June said...

fab desk stuff Linda, I just saw your brilliant card in the craft stamper mag, its gorgeous. Beautiful work my friend
Hugs June xxx

Julia Dunnit said...

I break a lot. Probably the number one rule I break is the one about keeping your desk tidy enough to see waht you're actually doing! I hate unpacking after a workshop too - that's another rule I break..weekly!

Minxy said...

Rules...what rules! I do as i please and then suffer the fallout after lol
And as for your rule breaking, i'd say it was more old age forgetfullness PMSL :D

Kathy said...

You can come and play anytime you want, Linda! well almost, anyway! Mind you you'd need to bring your own stamps as I don't have many....oh, and I only have about 10 distress inks. You've probably changed your mind already!

janine said...

Goodness. The biggest rule I have broken to date (well, this year anyway) is the rule about starting my blog. I already have the spot out here lined up but I have yet to write anything in it....LOL Truth be told, and the main reason why I have broken this rule so far: I used to have a blog out here for a little over 10 years. I quit doing it because it got to be so much work. Flash forward a couple of years later to the present and here I sit with another blog, knowing how much work this is going to be and I just can't seem to get my butt off the ground and get crackin.
