I've been working on something really quite exciting recently... *but*.... the details aren't finalised as yet so I can't share! Argh! Oooh the tension is killing me! :lol:
So anyway, I can't share what I've been working on but I *can* share where I've been working... and... brace yourselves.... I've tidied!!!! :)
Yup, I finally got fed up enough of the mess on my craft desk to start trying to do something about it. I was reaching the point where I was struggling to have space to craft in. So I had a darn good sort through and cleared all the paper scraps, random embellishments, tools, inkpads, varied bottles and jars, and accumulated rubbish (darn it but the paper backing strips of DST get everywhere!) from the main craft desk. Lookit! You can actually see desk! Acres of it! :D
I actually made two cards this evening too but I pretty much tidied as I went and a few strips of off-cut paper and a pad of 6x6 papers is all there is to show from my creating.
Just compare it to how it looked last week: :)
Admittedly, I have a lot more work to do. Because the second desk, the craft stacker unit, and even the floor, are still piled high. But it's a start right?
And I do still need to deal with the teetering pile that has accumulated on top of the printer:
I have however implemented one idea to try and prevent the mess from recurring (I know, I know, it's a futile effort, and yet still I try!) - a snazzy little metal "in-tray" in front of the Cameo is now housing any random bits of loose embellies etc and any bits of paper/card etc that I am currently working with/about to work with.
My idea is that by sitting it in front of the Cameo, it will prevent the build-up of paper scraps etc that usually accumulate in that area... and I can simply pick it up and move the whole thing aside when I want to use the Cameo.
That's the idea, anyway. Tune in in a few weeks to see how well it works! :lol:
That's it for me for WOYWW this week... hope to be able to share my exciting news some time very soon so keep an eye out for an announcement! :D
