Well this is my contribution to the fantastic What's On Your Workdesk over on Julia's blog. This is my celebration of that fact that I actually now have a workdesk. Its not so tidy or at all functional. It is a work in progress. But i finally have somewhere to keep my crafting bits and pieces and a room to create in. Hooray!!!
I finally sold the big bulky bunkbeds taking up unnecessary space in my spare room which has given me the room to finally get a desk and few bits of crafty storage. You can see from this photo that I havent got so far with unpacking (I started a new job Monday which leaves me little time or energy!). The big box contains all my Stampin' Up! stamps from downstairs. I had to unpack my craft cupboard so it could be moved upstairs. You can also see I've already solved my stamp pad problem in the background. They fit perfectly in this old bathroom shelf that my Dad painted for me. I've also moved the essentials- my Cricut and printer!!
Here is my actual workdesk. I half inched it from my recently retired Dad's office. It is glass topped and I have a plan for this desk. I am planning a huge scrapbooking layout in a patchwork style to lie under the frosted glass. But in the meantime I was playing with my Stampin' Up! In Colour Designer Series Paper and decided to make the desk more colourful with it. It isnt perfect. Sam and I tried loads of times to straighten the sheets, but everytime we let go of the glass they just did their own thing. So I kept the messy look.
So thats this weeks workdesk for you. Hopefully by next week I might have something a little more creative to share (and not just a box and some mess!).
Happy crafting ;0)
