WOYWW


Here is my desk this morning.
The observant among you will spot immediately that I have succumbed to peer pressure and now residing on my desk is the giant of a glue gun which I have been gazing at on many desks over the past weeks. When I heard that it was was on such a special offer at Viking, I thought I'd better get one before the offer ended, even though I have a drawer full of its baby cousins. I'm sure all will get used up in the end.
There are various remnants of cardmaking on the desk and one card in mid-make.
I have also given in to offers on Promarkers so now I have a choice... Copic or Pro... whichever colour seems right!
Here is my stock of Spellbinders and various other skinny dies, all neatly packed away in CD cases. I find this a really easy way to store them, with an albeit tatty label on the edge of the case letting me know where to find things.
Have a great day and do visit Julia (link on my sidebar) to take a look at what's going on on workdesks around the world!

  10. I'm really late to the party today. My internet was down at the wrong time, but I am trying to get around as fast as possible to everyone before the end of the day. A funny thing about the ATG. I didn't even know what the initials stood for when I first started viewing desks. This must be ONE SERIOUS gun. Happy WOYWW.

  16. nasty nasty tease - yes tease I say - I have my nose on the screen trying to 'see' the image that wooden 'stamp side up' stamp would make - it's drving me ever more crackers _ i really can't afford to be caught by my family behaving any more insanely that 'usual' - so to save them calling for the men in white jackets with the special coat for Mummy - please let me know what it is please?

  21. So nice to see a neat and organised desk like yours! I keep looking at the ATG gun but think they will have to make a mini model - those are just too big for me!

  31. Lots of lovely stash and nicely organised - Must be something of the retired teachers in us that makes us want all the stuff.

  32. Love your desk and the glue gun...!
    CD cases are a wonderful way of storing nesties! that's how I store mine too.

  33. You can never have too many pens I reckon! Jealous of your ATG gun - I want one too! x

  34. Scary gun, Chrissie - you could frighten people in dark alleys with it!!! Love the nestie storage, I have only 7 sets (with a 8th on the way!), so no need for special storage yet, all in good time though!!

    Julie :o)

  35. Lovely busy desk, have to admit I am envious of your glue gun. Thanks for the nestie storage idea, htat looks like a really good storage idea.

  36. Chrissie that is one large glue gun! I've looked at these but was not sure if I would be able to use - I've got Crapel Tunnel in both wrists

    Stick (no pun intended!!) to herma at the moment, are they easy to use?

    Hugs Candace

  39. That ATG gun literally changed the way I craft - I don't think I would have kept at the scrapbooking without it, as it was killing me how much those little glue runners cost! Good luck - you'll get the hang of it, and in no time at all be wondering how you ever did without it!

  40. Congratulations on your ATG acquisition!!! You will love it!!! It is one of my favorite crafty purchases of all time!

  44. I really like your WOYWW banner. And I was wandering about that yellow thingy. Now I know.

  45. OMG is it that big! Hadn't realised the size of the glue gun, it's enormous beside the green bug. I have to rethink about buying one.

    Love the WOYWW banner!
