Am so glad Julia's posted the WOYWW post early this week... cos I stayed up waaaaaaay too late last night and I really must get an early night tonight!
So here's my sneaky peek at my desk:
The small oasis of usable space is now definitely on the endangered list. I keep telling myself I'll tidy but I just need to finish these one or two projects first.... and maybe that one... you know how it is. ;)
Been doing a fair bit of crafting lately, mostly cards and ATCs - oh and a whole bunch of teacher gifts! (see previous post) - and indeed there is an in-progress set of ATCs on the desk.
Am also getting my head around the summer holidays starting and the sudden lack of routine - no kiddy classes or pre-school!
And that's it for me. Am going to finish up watching an episode or two of MacGyver on Netflix (I know, I know, I'm feeling nostalgic for the 80s.. :D), eat some ice cream and then hit the sack! :)
Have a good Wednesday folks.

ohh McGyver!!! That was one of my favorite shows... the amount of stuff he could actually do with some gum lol Yup your space is going on the endanger list lol but that's the type of space that I usually have... I'll be posting my WOYWW tomorrow as it's still is Tuesday here and haven't been crafting today...

I hope you get plenty of crafting time during the holidays
Sending hugs for WOYWW and hope you enjoy the rest of your week

Wow, my fingers are itching to clear up on your desk! Do you actually know what's in those piles or have you lost the plot, lol! Hope you get the kids organised for the break and find some time for yourself too!

Julia Dunnit said...

I'm rubbish without routine..nothing seems to get done. Loving the sight of your desk..you don't need to tidy until you need something from underneath something and that causes a land fall. Really, I should know!

Julie Lee said...

Hope you can find time to do some crafting as well as keeping your little ones occupied with the holiday coming up! Your desk looks great! I love busy desks and those ATCs look as if they're going to be great! Have a happy WOYWW! Julie Ann #17 x

I'm pleased I am not the only one's who hasn't got much space on the computer desk to move a mouse.....definitely looks like you have been busy and I am loving the look of your set of ATC's, so pretty in the colors you have used. Happy WOYWW! Danie #74

Giggle, Ali,

I know exactly how it is with endangered species like "crafting space left on my table"...

But honestly I love seeing the traces of creative work. Your desk looks great and...I learned that recently... "in creative mode". Yessss!

Have a wonderful WW!

Yes, I know were you come from with the desk thing - creating is far more interesting than tidying.

Happy School Holidays.

Ah there's still at least an inch, or half an inch, to craft on, no need to clear yet, wait til it's at the excavation stage we say.

Are you sure it's YOUR desk that is in the photo, and not mine??? Left shove had to be employed this last couple of days - in order to be writing this!!
Have a great week with your children.

Oh my, you have been busy. Checked out the note books you made for the teachers. They are wonderful, and I just bet they all loved them.

I have been sucked in to the ATC thing too - but darn it they are just perfect for crating something from bits and bobs!

Happy WOYWW!

Love the colors on your ATC's. Brigita #95

I figure as long as there is room to do what you need to do, you don't have to clean up the rest. Works for me.
I love the colours on those ATC's.
Have a great week.

Hi Allie,

Love your desk. Everything right there.... no there.... where? And the printer - how is it that the printer is the handy place to plonk stuff. Then, when you print something there is this muffled crumpling issuing from beneath the stuff. Oh mercy!
Your ATCs are pretty colours. I love some of the colours that are out more recently.

Hi Ali, by now you will be getting settled into your unsettled holiday break routine ... it's so nice for the children that the weather is hot and sunny. I chuckled at the idea of usable space being an endangered species. I'm often nostalgic for the 80s too, if only because I weighed several stones lighter back then :( Have a great weekend.
