Wednesday, September 8

No Excuses!

WOYWW0809
That is right WOYWWers ... I am not even going to venture into the land of excuse making ... this wet and windy Wednesday! I thought about telling you that there had been a natural disaster in the vicinity of my desk ... I toyed with the idea that I could blame the dog ... or John ... or both ... I even contemplated taking a picture of a tidy desk and sharing that with you ... but when push came to shove ... well this is my desk and yes it is a mess!
For those of you that worried about my drawer opening capabilities ... well fret ye not ... they all open! For those of you that showeWOYWW0809ad interest in the amount of times I opened them ... panic ye not ... these drawers hold supplies that I regularly use ... all to hand ... so I don't have to get up :0)
Nothing more I can say ... if you think I am barking ... well join the queue ... or visit Julia and she will explain why I have displayed my desk for the world to see. As for the sneaky peek ... you need to check back later for the full reveal :0)
Have a good Wednesday everyone!

I'm always in awe of people who can work in a tiny amount of space and not feel the need to clean up as you go. That's what I love about Wednesday. It gives me a new perspective on OCD (grin).

Morti said...

Good Morning Linda! I'm following on from Elaine's comment - I spotted the plaques too and would love to see a close-up of them!

Wipso said...

That is a really creatively busy desk. When you're a busy crafter it's hard to stay tidy so no guilt please.

Morning Linda, what a lot of rubbah on your desk would really like to see what they make. I see lots of distress pads look like they have been working hard.
Have a lovely day thanks for the snoop. Hugs JO.xxx

Serendipity (Christine) said...

No such thing as a 'mess' just creative space ;-)

Phree said...

Fab creative desk, the spidery thing looks intriguing. Thanks for the snoop round.

JoZart said...

And you could have just used the excuse that there was a giant spider there so you couldn't go near!! Great mess and thanks for the great snoop!

CRAFTY WOMBLE said...

You do know that it is the natural order of life to exist as random chaos right - and why fight nature!! it is one of my many excuses and I am sticking with it. With a baby and husband (translate 2 kids) my house looks pretty much like your desk except for about 2 secs after tidying - hurrah for chaos

Claireliz said...

Love your desk as always butthat spider gives me the creeps **shudders**

Minxy said...

A messy desk signals a happy linda so who could argue with that...

The Crafty Goat Girl said...

Oooooo that spider reminds me of the one in our loo the other evening, I nearly passed out it was so big, lol! Great creative space, love it! hugs Heidi xx

Kay said...

Tidy is vastly over rated, in fact tidy people are just too lazy to look for things! Love the desk, and the sneaky peak is interested but me no likey spiders :0

Cardarian said...

Hugs,
Cardarian

Susan Allan said...

Hi Linda
I wonder with so much stuff, do you ever lose track of things or do you know exactly where everything is?

Sue xx

Sarah Youde said...

ellen said...

Hi Linda - you're just waiting for me to come over there to tidy up, arent' you??? LOL. Love the sneak peak at the spiderweb/spider - is it an ATC? Is that the *wendy* spider?? Love that one. Have a great day - Ellen

Carmen said...

Ooooooooooooooooh am all a slobber at your sneaky peek.

And what do you mean - I thought I did well trimming my post down - it was twice that long to begin with :P

mustavcoffee said...

Hi there, love your desk it's full of inspiration, would love to play with some of those yummy stamps, ooh, just lovely:)xxx

Bettythebaglady said...

It's not the desk it's the work that counts no matter how you produce it.One look at a picture of Francis Bacon's studio would convince you of that-mind you some of his work does look a bit off the wall!Hugs BettyXXX

scrappystickyinkymess said...

Def. coming back to check out the full photo! Looks spooky :)

I, too, have open drawers all over the place, sme as you, full of stuff I use every day. But I do have to be careful :) The ones on the window ledge overlap a ridge and too many open drawers is a recipe for disaster as they will tip forward! I know my desk often looks like stuff has been tipped over on it, but I assure you I try to keep my reflexes quick enough to catch them before that happens. any mess is me, on purpose LOL!

Hels Sheridan said...

ROFLMAO... that desk.. tis worse than I have ever seen it.. but that must mean that you have been really busy :O)) Mine is rather spotless... *smug face* but not for long LOL x

Toucan Scraps said...

I wish I could leave my desk looking like that, it's a bind having to tidy everything away every time I craft. But little hands ....
Happy crafting

Theresa said...

My kind of workspace Linda! Love the lavender wall too!

Sarah A said...

Very homely! The spider looks intriguing - only as it isn't real!

Sarah x

Tidy just blocks creativity - and that would never do..so we are allowed to be messy!! Oh..and please issue a spider warning next time..Happy WOYWW...Esther xx

Daniele said...

Piddawinkle said...

dont feel any shame at the mess of your room, your creativity obviously sparks from that, if you do feel shame I am thinking of starting a support group for Crafters who work in their own mess CoWTOM for short LOL, ok need to take my tablets now

lisa said...

Not a messy desk, Linda, a creative one, there's a huge difference.
At least you put your stash in a drawer, mine are stacked up on the floor at the side of my table!!!
Hugs Lisax

madebyKarla said...

I agree, everything must be within reach! those drawers are great! I wish I had more drawer space. I can see lots of work gets done here! thanks for the peek ;)

Sunshine Girl said...

Desk looks fine to me - I always scrap with everything to hand too - basically when I sit at my desk I am there to stay - no point wasting creative energy by getting up is there! Love the sneak peek cant wait to see it all.

peggy aplSEEDS said...

i really like all the hanging art! never mind the desk, keep your eyes on the art in front!

Neet said...

I just love your desk - love the colours you see when you look at the photograph. Reminds me of whimberry pie with cream (does anyone remember picking whimberries? And have I spelt it right?).

Joanne said...

looks like you need a 4th tier to your blending tool stand judging by all those on your desk.
Luv Joanne xx

Alix said...

eeeeep...i'm not liking the spider...well actually i am...but you'd think i was wierd if i said that! ;0)

Nan said...

Just looks like a creative wonderful playroom....you have some neat stuff going on! :)Nan

Becky said...

"What fabulous-ness is in all those drawers?" she wonders.

Poppit said...

oh wow, I just LOVE your desk.....I could sit and play for AGES :-)

voodoo vixen said...

Yikes Linda, that is messy!! You must have been too ill to tidy up... you are forgiven! Sorry I am like days late on my visiting but life and a bad toe and other stuff got in the way but i am plowing through the desks...

Julia Dunnit said...

Not only very late, but I started at the other end, so it's been a journey!! Your desk looks welcoming and familiar to me - but am concerned that you seem to have paintbrushes in your coffee mug. Only to save you from any vague nasty tastes you understand.

Lori said...

OMG that's amazing!

linda said...

Your desk looks like mine, SERIOUSLY! I love the boxes, I have only seen then finished with photos, the Halloween effect is awesome. Linda

Spyder said...

First sorry I'm sooo late, at last home and almost ready to start crafting again after dog sitting, my goodness, I love your desk this week, soooo much stuff, I have stuff, but it looks sooo messy! Any chance of a swap?!
