My WOYWW comes with a health warning!!!!

Oh yes it does....what a MESS!!!!!!!  I have had one of those weeks where I am faffing with what to do.  Soooo there is lots out, lots started and even more discarded hahahaha!!!!  By yesterday afternoon I was losing the will to live & started painting!!!



But I can't let you go & think that I am always messy (yeah right) so here is a pick of my now organised clear stamps...


So have I redeemed myself????  If you want to join in the fun and have a nosey at other bloggers work spaces pop over to Julia's to find more!! HUGS XXX

I'm sat here chuckling. Why do we all feel the need to excuse a mess when what we have been doing is enjoying life? Thats what life should be full of so I'm really pleased to see it. Enjoy.

Not messy - just a creative muddle!! lol! You certainly have redeemed yourself with the boxes of stamps - I'm still working on different ideas to sort mine x

Linda Elbourne said...

You pulled it back there very nicely indeed I might add! Fabulous stamp storage and a neatly stored BIA too ... as for your desk ... I am just gonna nod knowingly ... I feel your pain ... *LOL*

Julia Dunnit said...

Yeah but Karen, your faffing looks pretty productive to me! Am liking the clear stamp storage..I think if you've been tidying and sorting those, the untidy desk is a given! Great idea by the way!

Vicki said...

WOW that is a mess BUT i bet you're making something fabulous xxx

Helen said...

Ok, so there's lots of stuff hanging around, but that's just creativity in the making!

Anesha said...

Love how you organized your clear stamps. Believe me your desk is much better than mine! lol Thanks for the comment on my layout and yes Skipper (girl) was yawning! :) Have a great day. Anesha

You've definitely redeemed yourself with the stamp storage, very impressive. Your desk is really busy but you've got lots of things on the go that when they're finished are going to look great. How do you like those Colorbox Inks with all the different shades? Do they come out of the holder easily, supposed to still be individual aren't they? I was looking at them last week and couldn't make up my mind.

yay, you've got the free 'fat cats' too, I haven't used mine yet, they look cute.
My clear stamps are in a purple (clear) plastic bin, that way, if any of the tiny bits fall out, they'll be in there...somewhere!!

Fabulous desk Karen. Looks a hive of activity. :) Love the look of your painted backgrounds & the little house. I soooo need to know where you got that big jar of Gesso.

Have fun.xx

You call that a mess Karen? See I know you've seen mine ;))

Love the idea for storing the clear stamps though.

Rosie said...

Well it is a BIT messy ... but creative licence and all that! Lots of lovely things to see here - like your pink drawers and that clear stamp storage looks really good! I've got mine in ring binders.

Paula Gale said...

Hi Karen - i also got the free fat cat stamps... haven't inked them up yet though... I love how you have your stamps organised - which throws me into a true quandry - shall i copy your way or carry on what I was doing *head spinning*.... I love the state of your desk which tells me that you've been messing and creating and enjoying yourself in general - which is what it is all about - surely???

Gini said...

I heart your messy desk, it means your busy and I bet you know where everything is!
I don't think you can be as productive as you are and have a tidy work space, unless you never sleep. :-)

Chris said...

You think that's a mess me lovely...lol You should see my floor when I'm fininshed playing. Always end up creating there cos I get so much stuff out and then can't find anything cos I'm sat on it rofl. Bit painful with scissors sometimes.
Anyway your desk shows you are enjoying yourself and wow how organized are your stamps!!! I can NEVER find mine when I want them... need to take a leaf out of your book me thinks.
hugs
