Size Matters!

WOYWW2508

I will get onto the whole size thing in a minute!

First up is my desk ... call it messy ... creative ... artistic ... busy ... whatever you like ... the truth is ... from a work perspective ... it is now what I class as a contaminated area ... and decontamination needs to start pretty sharpish... I can bear it no longer!

So WOYWWers ... I may even come back and show you a tidy desk later today ... actually ... you and I both know that aint gonna happen ... I don't even know why I thunk it ... or typed it out loud ... it will take me all day to visit you guys :0)SSS12208

So ... the whole size thing??? ... well lots of people ... when I say lots ... you guys know me well enough to know that I mean two or three people ... wanted to know the size of my suitcase ... it is 5.5 inches by 4 and a bit inches ... Hands up who thought it was full size! See I told you it mattered!

I am off now to do a spot of photography ... have a fab WOYWW ... and if you have no idea what I am talking about ... Julia ... the overseer of tidy and messy desks the world over will tell you all about it ... here!

Well I didn't think it was full size - blimey what a lot of work that would've been - but I certainly though it was about 2 and half times as big.
Is that proper photography Linda? YKWIM :-)

Great suitcase! Lovely messy desk!

Helen said...

I didn't think it was that small - actually, I know the ones you mean, so if I'd have thunk it through I would have. Don't tidy that desk, miss, we'd have nowt to look at!

Hels Sheridan said...

Chuff it.. Minxy beat me to it ROFL I was gonna offer to decontaminate your workdesk and take away all that "rubbish" for you... I know how sought after your rubbish bags are LOL

craftydi said...

Love the suitcase! I like the look of your drawers to the right of the picture......what are they, I want some - look great for storing stamps.

Linda Cain said...

I love it!

voodoo vixen said...

OK.. now you are making me feel guilty as I have had a couple of those wee suitcases for over two years now and never done anything but make them smell better! (Did you notice the smell the first time you opened it)?? Mothballs or something? I had to stuff mine with tumble drier sheets and leave them for a fortnight!
I am with Hels... how the heck do you get your legs under that desk???

Net said...

What's wrong with your desk? Looks perfectly OK to me.... But then perhaps I may not be the best judge! ;))

sweet craf-tea chick said...

what a cute size for your suitcase :)! i knew it wasn't full size because of the stamped image, but it looks like it's full size :). it's an awesome project! i wish i had those kind of things around here. it's so adorable. thanks for sharing and have a great day! my craft area needs a lot of tidying ;p'.
*hugs* steph :)

nessy said...

JoZart said...

Tracy Evans said...

Oh Linda I love that little suitcase and I love the fact that it is little. If it needs a new home I would love it, I have just the ideal use for it, I could store all my Tim's Idea-ology in it. Well if you don't ask you don't get do you LOL. Love the desk too whatever you might call it, creative, messy, blah de blah de blah. Have a lovely evening Linda, Tracy x

Ellephantastic Cards and Crafts said...

he he!! I have to admit the suitcase is a tad smaller then I thought but not buy much. I was thinking it was about 12" wide but not full size lol!! Your desk is a piece of art all too itself, no need for a tidy! x

Sarah A said...

Contaminated working area??? LOL, this is one contamination I wouldn't mind catching!!

Thought the case was bigger than tht but not by much! It is soooo cute (in size not style)

Serendipity Stamping said...

Wonderfully messy desk today. Is that the size suitcase the airlines are trying to get us down to?

Dawn Edwards said...

Wow I never would have guessed it was so small! I love it! Can you send me one? I love your desk or creative mess! Sometimes I benefit from a left over mess as it flows into another creation.

Rachel said...

Your desk looks great. Please don't tidy it. You're a creative artist and your desk should reflect it!

Thank you for sharing. Have a good one.

Carola Bartz said...

Of course it's artistic and not messy!!!

Joanne said...

I sooo want one of those ink blender stands - 3 tier of course. Hope your knees aren't too sore 'cos there's not much room for them.
Luv Joanne xx

Sid said...

Yes....plenty going on there Linda!!

Kate said...

Wouldn't it be fab if someone made full size ones for decorating - at least big enough to fit a 12x12 album in?

SYLVIA-ANNE said...

Love that gorgeous suitcase!! Your craft desk is so full of fabulously creative things, it's hard to know what to look at first!
Sylvia x

Doone said...

size is relative... yes

is it a big or small? woudl be my measure

you see to This Woman big or small is enough

but to a man - oh no it has to be feet and inches or cm and meters -

I have never been forgiven for measuring our new kitchen surface requirements in feet and inches and relaying the same Numbers to the wood merchant (with Niall present commenting - that's a lot of wood) in meters and centimeters,

He thinks I did it deliberatly cos I use wood for my art ( would I?)

Daniele said...

love the suitcase know where I've seen it already ......on the new class list and wow those classes look fantastic, I've got my eye on 4/5 of them already fingers crossed that I can get a place...got to phone from Holland hows that for dedication

nerllybird said...

Your desk looks fab, I'd love to have a play - but doesn't it drive you nuts not being able to get your knees under it?!

Andrea - Wales, UK said...

Nice to have 'Mrs Messy' back in action this week. Are you creating on the floor as there's no room on that desk this week??
Gorgeous suitcase and Can't wait for the 4th September for the class release....fingers crossed me and 'Sis' get a place!!

xx

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

I almost missed the picture of the suitcase being distracted by the desk. Yep, I know what you mean when you say it's time to clean it up. I'm a neat freak, but it still happens with me.

I want to apologize for being so late this week. I had a required tutorial to post on Thursday and had trouble getting back to the WOYWW blogs. Have a great weekend.
