The Stamps I Use

What's on MY workdesk(s) this Wednesday

Hi folks....

YAY!!! I'm at home today - starting a SIX day long weekend (albeit with the beginnings of a head-cold - bleh!) before I do another stint of almost three weeks of on-call duty (double-bleh!). Really, I can't complain about the on-call - it's why I CAN take six day weekends!

I am finally playing along with WOYWW (What's on your workdesk Wednesday). If you don't know what this is all about, check out Julia's blog here.

Warning - I didn't do ANY tidying before taking these pictures, Okay, that's not quite true - I pushed in two drawers - one on the wooden box, one on the plastic organizer so you could SEE what was underneath them (chuckle!) Oh...and I have two workdesks in my craft room at the moment (recently down from three).

So here is desk #1 (well really  it's a table)

What's on it? ummmmm....residue from recent cards that's for sure. I see Basic Grey Pyrus, Cosmo Cricket Joy Ride, My Mind's Eye Home, and stamps and Spellbinders and inks that were all used on recent cards. Oh - my fave Glue Glider Pro and my Lee Valley Transfer Tape, my ink daubers (never far from reach). You can see my coffee tins that hold my Copics (running out of space in those!) - underneath those are my Prismacolor Pencils. My "whiteboard" from one of Jenn's workshops - where I keep track of the cards I need to make. Needs to be updated - September is over! And to think - I'm about to sit down and make a bunch of cards today in this mess.

Desk #2 (dearly beloved made this one for me)

I rarely "work" (i.e. stamp/colour/assemble) on this one as it usually has multiple paper trimmers and my laptop on the surface. This time my scanner is there as well (I'm trying to remember to scan my coloured images when I complete them and really like how they turned out but most of the time I forget). You can see my TV is faithfully tuned to the SPACE network (All sci-fi, all the time here in Canada). The wooden cabinet it is sitting on holds a small amount of my 8.5x11cardstock. The taller wooden cabinet next to it holds my CTMH inks and markers (and yes, it is full). Can't forget the Spellbinders in the CD cabinet and the white box on top of my stereo. Oh...and that mess behind the laptop has six new sets of Spellbinders, new PWCO RAM stamps and the Sept Papercard kit hiding under my sketch pad (somewhere). Did you notice the powerbar? Yup, the switches are labelled with what is plugged in to them (mind you my laptop is plugged in to the lamp switch but that's okay).

The towers supporting the desk are filled with stamps, as are the white boxes underneath. You can just see my scrap tote underneath - full of CTMH 12x12 cardstock. JUST cardstock.

There you go....just a small sample of my craft room (you aren't seeing my 12x12 patterned paper cabinet, my shelves or my cart with the Cricuts and all my punches and MORE 12x12 patterned paper) and the MESS of stuff all over the floor!

So, what's on YOUR workdesk this Wednesday?

I see all the papers and tools you mention - but what about that delicious wooden box on top left - beautiful grain and polish - I have a teak drawer set in much the same state and I love it. Love that your other desk is supported by stash - lovely! Only just (literally, last weekend) encountered CTMH..obviously am now jealous of all your stuff!
