What’s On Your Workdesk? Wednesday#

Right. Let’s get snooping. A few photos for your delectation (by the way it’s Tuesday night, gotta work tomoz).

The desk:


Oh yeah baby, I have started the ATCs ready for the big Anniversary and the crop.The piles of acrylic blocks are flattening out some sticking.


Emergency 90th birthday card request received this evening – complete inspiration fail, had to resort to ‘casing’ a layout by Julie Hickey using the delish Country Cottage papers. Centre stage here. waiting for me to print out a personalised centrepiece.


And what do you think of my new storage? These ‘shelves’ were drawers in a cabinet that was going to be thrown away at work because the runners had broken and it was no longer fit for purpose. So I have re-purposed them – they fitted in the space I had perfectly so it was obviously meant to be! So chuffed to be able to get all my bits out where I can see them. (So to speak!!). And a nice little bit of display space across the top. Must do something about that nescafe box though.

So that’s it for this week. HERE is a 'how to' join in WOYWW,everyone is welcome.  Here is an explanation of the WOYWW madness.  And HERE is how we're going to mark the fifth anniversary of ourselves, the week after some of us get together for the WOYWW Crop which is coming up very, very soon! I will have lots of ATCs for the crop and also for the actual anniversary – hopefully about 10 in total that can be posted so let me know if you would like to swap. I did make a note of those that asked last week and will get back to you with details asap.

I hope you enjoyed your visit, would love to know you have been. As I said work today (sob) so will  probably be a late visitor. Happy WOYWW!!

Love your drawer shelves and I have to agree it's so much easier to use your stash when you can see it and reach it :) Looks great !! Happy WOYWW hugs Nikki

Am envious! Your new storage is super. Gosh they must have been big cupboards but what a steal. Lucky you.

Hi Cindy,

I'd say you scored with those shelves, no matter they were drawers in their other life.

You pulled it together nicely for the 90th birthday card. I bet the recipient will love it. Nice stack of ATCs too. I haven't started on mine yet......

Peace, Kay (35)

Winnie said...

Loving your storage! You can never have too many shelves. I know I thought I would never fill mine and yet....ha. Special card for 90, they will love it. I never made an ATC so I am enjoying seeing how people do them. Winnie#57

Chrysalis said...

Your shelving looks great - no-one would guess they weren't purpose-built! I hope the 90th card turns out the way you'd like. Thanks again SO MUCH for the beautiful birdhouse - now sitting in my craft room, waiting to go up on the wall! Have a fab week, Chris # 23 xx

Helen said...

oh my, what fabulous re-purposing! Lucky lucky you... You seem to be doing better than me at the atc's though I have finally begun.. should be doing something more to them now, really! Helen 7

Carole said...

I'm over the moon about your repurposed drawers used for shelving, Cindy! It's a dream of organization and coolness! Your ATCs look marvelous, as does your WIP bday card! I haven't even given birth to an idea for my ATCs so I guess I'd better hold off on asking for one just yet.

Thank you for stopping by to see me and FS! Have a wonderful week! Hugs, Darnell #24
