WOYWW - 20 July 2011

So... this time last week I was muttering about needing to tidy in my craft room... and here it is Wednesday again and I just know you're wondering... did I tidy? Did I get the blinds put up?

Well.... yes and no:


The desk is still in utter chaos and now sports an attractive selection of stamps in need of cleaning. And there are still no blinds on the window (cos that requires actually clearing the desk - shock horror! - to allow DH to get to the window to install said blinds). So that would be the no part.

But... I did make a start on the tidying. I may not have had much impact on the desk itself but I have made significant progress on the floor:


Yup, as bad as this looks now, there is a good 50% more carpet visible than there was this time last week! :lol:

I also sorted some storage for my growing collection of Nesties (see earlier post) and  had a big old sort out and reorganise of my "overflowing to the point of disaster" scrap boxes:


I am resolved to try and tackle the desk over the next couple of days and actually make space for DH to do his DIY thing this weekend... I hope. Remains to be seen if I manage it or not.

Thanks for stopping by to see what's on my desk/marvel at the mess. I also resolve to try and visit a few more desks this week... but again, whether I actually manage to remains to be seen! :lol:

How nice to see the floor covering, if only a bit of it LOL. Oh dear, how do you find anything in that lovely arrangement of goodies on the floor/desk/ceiling (oops sorry). Only joking of course, we all get a bit "busy" on our desks at times. Thanks for sharing - Hugs, Neet x #3

Yay!! You have space to get in and out now.... good luck with the rest of it!!

Oh what to do with all those scraps? I have issues with hoarding all the itsy bitsy pieces. GOOD progress on the floor - keep it up and then you can mess it all up again:)

You are brave tidying up, it took me a year to start my tidy and I'm glad I took the plunge at least now I have a reasonble idea where things are and what I bought and had forgotten about. I have to admit your desk does look productive and creative.

I've got a confession - My name is LL Jan and I'm a secret tidy-upper, I just can't help it! The bane of my life is the dining table, no sooner have I cleared it than it magically gets covered with stuff again, thanks to the three men in the house! xx

What’s a carpet Ali? I’ve not seen the one on the floor in my craft room for ages Lol!

I’ve come to the conclusion that trying to keep things tidy is a complete and utter waste of time and would rather be crafting. Mind you, having said that I love your new nestie storage, what a great way to keep everything together.

Happy Crafting!
Sue

Well done you! Gah, the thing is, if you clear a space across the floor to the desk, he might get in there and try the desk sorting for you!! He might not of course...you could distract him, I'm sure!

At least it's a step in the right direction! I'm over run with bits of paper too and my nestie collection is about the same size as yours and starting to spill out of the drawer!

I find tiding a desk a thankless task ...it just gets things dumped on it ...as for the floor !!!! I think you have done so well. I love your storage idea for nestabilities ...I have just started to collect them .... but soon I will need to get some of that tape.

Good luck with the tidy. Made a start on our house today - I honestly think if we had been burgled nobody would have been any the wiser!
