Yup, it's Wednesday again (seriously, where are the days going?!!) and time to join crafters around the world on the biggest - and nosiest! :D - blog hop there is. :)
My desk today is the usual mess, lots of debris of recent crafting (much of which I can't share just yet), and a pile of digi stamps I've been colouring in. Now that the nights are longer and the weather colder I am finding it harder and harder to prise myself off the sofa of an evening and get into the craft room. So as a compromise I often take my boxes of Promarkers and a sheet or two of printed digi stamps into the lounge with me and I sit and colour as I watch tv. :)
However, I really am going to have to get into the craft room later this week and do some seeeeeerious tidying and reorganising. Cos somewhere amongst all this chaos:
I need to clear space to set up this! :)
As mentioned in a previous post, my awesomely wonderful hubby got me a Silhouette Cameo for my birthday. :D I've been hankering after one for a while but hadn't mentioned anything to (completely non-crafty) hubby, but bless him he took it upon himself to do some research into crafting kit and decided that the Cameo is a machine I haven't got and that I'd probably like.
Did I pick a good 'un or what? :D
The problem's gonna be having both the printer and the Cameo on the desk within cable-length of the computer tower. Am thinking I might move the two screens further to the right (assuming their cables will reach that far!!) and pop the Cameo alongside the printer.
Ah decisions, decisions.
Thanks for stopping by my desk, hope you have an enjoyable Wednesday!

For the serious snooper like me your desk is perfect - tons to rummage through :) Lucky you, perfect hubby and a Cameo too! Have you thought of fitting a wide shelf above the tower for Cameo and printer - would save you moving all your vital crafting stuff :)) Have a great weekend. Elizabeth x #43
