WOYWW ....

... the first one of 2011 - and I've actually made it on the day!!   Amazing.  On my desk today are bits and pieces that I'm using for a couple of challenges - check back later for the card.  It's still reasonably tidy - but you should see the floor!!  Then again, maybe not!



Still bits lying around from the oriental thanks card. 


Ah!!  There's my challenge note book - details of challenges I'm going to try to do!


Ah - for my challenge card - check back later. 


I don't plan my desk for the WOYWW photo - it's just whatever happens to be there at the time - sometimes it's scraps from cards made earlier (mostly it's this), but today I'm actually a bit prepared!!  I'll try to get around and see everyone's desks - but it's a big list and getting bigger by the minute!! :)

I think that the Challenge notebook is a really good idea. I tend to write details of challenge requirements on bits of paper and promptly lose them!
I may 'take a leaf out of your book'.
Happy New Year!

It's fun seeing other crafter's desks and realize that I'm not the only with a PILE of stuff on my workstation.

I also keep a monthly calendar on my bulletin board with crafty dates written in. It's a great way to stay (or try anyway) organized.

Happy New Year!

Love the idea of the challenge notebook, I miss too many that I would have liked to have joined in with! How's the new light holding up?

I'm lovin' that stamp in the last photo! Can't wait to see how you use it.

I like the shape of your work desk as well!

Thanks for stopping by this morning. I've got to head back to work today after a nice long holiday. *sigh*

I think you've just given us some great ideas. The challenge notebook is a brilliant thought, and I also love that two-tier desk. One tier for stuff and one for working. Simples but so very clever.

That pretty daffodil card is chasing away the thoughts of more snow tomorrow.

I'm trying to clear my bits before I start the next challenge....... not always possible.. Now do I see some swatches there???? I wonder how I did without mine now.

ah such a lovely snoop you have a wonderful workdesk and some lovely stash, and inddedy you live in a wonderful place (I read your profile)

If I did not adore Derbyshire I would also agree that North Wales is most beautiful, but the Lakes are rather wonderful too, as it most of Scotland, however, my heart lives in the Canal Du Midi and Languedoc-Roussillon oh and Durban with my tippie toes in the Indian ocean

i need a few more houses and a lot more cash! or I might just become a second wave (old age) traveller

A challenge notebook is a great idea, I'm always checking back on my laptop and still I make mistakes!!
Nice to see your workspace, I might have to try a two tier system in my little space :))Loved your card for the CR84FN colour challenge

Love your two level desk! I think this must be the first time I have visited!

Like your challenge notebook, I'm keeping a monthly folder this year so I can keep track of what I did!

Happy WOYWW!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog! Your desk looks like a workable surface; I didn't dare post my "desk" desk, just the computer one.

I love the card you made for the challenge, truly lovely. I particularly like the yellow you chose.

I think you are an incredibly organised crafter. Love the challenge notebook might have to borrow that idea. Also really like that stamp in your last photo.

I like the challenge note book - very organized. I'm trying something similar for this year as well just for my blog, as it got quite a lot last year and I sometimes lost track. And I see that you like to eat ice-cream...

Tertia said...

Organised chaos, just my kind of desk. i would love to see the finished project.

What a lovely desk full of interesting things happening. I like the idea of your challenge notebook. I think I may borrow that idea, I need to be more organised and keep losing the scraps of paper I usually scribble things on.

I agree that the list is getting bigger and bigger. Like you, I'm trying to get to everyone, but when I have a desk with as many projects as yours, it takes a long time to snoop. That challenge notebook is a very clever idea and I love that stamp you will be using. Happy WOYWW on Friday from #16.
