Looking at this, no-one would believe that I had removed EVERYTHING from the surface of my desk and wiped it clean of all traces of snippings, dust, escaped embossing powder, attempted embellishments and other detritus, merely minutes previously.
It doesn't take me long to make a mess.
Despite my re-organisation of my cling stamps recently, I still can't find a couple of stamp sets... one cling, one clear. It's SO annoying, I really can't imagine where they can be... the sad thing is that I  may have put them some where 'safe' and haven't any recollection of it.
Please say I'm not the only one who does this!
My grandchildren will be coming to stay tomorrow, their parents have a wedding to attend on Friday, so not a lot of crafting will take place whilst they are around... but it will be fun!
DO pop over to Julia the Queen of all Workdesk hopping and take a look at what other people's desks look like this week!


  1. Looks like a fun, creative desk and it also still looks pretty tidy to me! I hope you enjoy your time with your Grandchildren :)

    Have a fab WOYWW and a lovely week, Hugs, Karen xx #12

  2. Have a fun time with the Grandchildren....we have to do the same on Sunday while our Daughter and her hubby go to a wedding :-) What fun.

  3. Looks quite organised to me Chrissie. For a neat freak, I am one very messy crafter. Never have time to put things away before the next urge comes over me.

  4. Hey set the grand children to good use and get them creative with you. Get an old book and make journal pages with credit cards and paint and water and windex and stencils and all sorts of stuff that they can get messy with. You will have a ball and they will love it.

  5. Yes I do believe it! I can never get mine to look tidy!
    In the middle of a field, on the dongle, so not much Internet time, whizzing round as fast as I can!
    Happy WOYWW

  6.'s amazing how we gravitate back to our desk once we've just cleaned it...and how annoying when we can never find our 'safe keeping' items...have a loVely week...Mel :)

  7. I constantly lose stuff but then it makes it more fun when it turns up and I feel like I have a new toy (apart from my left brown boot that seems to have disappeared - that is a nuisance as I cant hop to school as its too far!). Thanks for sharing - Sunshine Girl No. 29

  8. I've rebought things I've put "somewhere safe" only to discover the original about 5 minutes after bringing the new one home and putting it in the same safe place......

  9. Hi Chrissie, it really doesn't take long to get messy again does it? Have fun with your grandchildren & then give them By the way can you tell me what you use all those brushes for please, I'm curious.

  12. Hope you find your stamps - bet you really wanted to use it too....Helen 7

  13. Your'e definitely NOT the only one that loses cling stamps Chrissie. Your desk doesn't look too bad to me.

    Happy WOYWW xxx

  14. You are NOT the only one! I once "lost" part of a magnetic set for ages and ages - took all the drawers out looking. Guess where I found them? Magnetically attached to the underneath of one of the darn drawers!!! Ooopsie!

    Enjoy your busy few days


  15. Creative desk;-)

    ps could you let me know if you visit, I have visited you as I always visit (if possible) back everyone whom visits me.
    pps my candy is still open, 2 saturated canary digi's of your choice

  18. Such a great space. I can never keep my space clean. I'm constantly putting away but somehow everything comes right back!

  19. I used to be able to remember where I put everything but that was before I really had time to do much crafting. Now I am so busy er and rather untidy - I often have mad moment when I can't find things!!

  20. I've bought six small ranger mister's through the months as I put one away safely never to be found again!! yikes!! Hugs May x x x#32

  21. thanks for the crafty snoop at your busy desk those pesky stamps are probably sitting look right at you...happy WOYWW...hugs kath 59 xxx

  22. You're certainly not the only one to do that with stamps. It took me ages the other night to find what I wanted despite the fact it was in the box where it should have been - tucked away a bit. Nice tidy workspace - thanks for sharing - Hazel, WOYWW #10 x

  23. These are beautiful cards! I just love that duck image....

  24. Popping in after a busy week to catch up on visits.
    You should take photos of clear ups as evidence as it looks as though you've had fun since.
    Have a great bank holiday weekend.
