Welcome to hump day..or as it is known in the crafting world "What's on your Workdesk Wednesday" hosted by the lovely Julia (WOYWW link is over on the right to see what it is all about). So time to bare all.......
This photo was actually taken on Sunday when for some crazy reason I decided it was time to sort my craft room out! Now, after crafting for 37 years I have amassed a lot of crap (as well as some sentimental pieces and some rather nice stash). Its all good stuff, and cost a wad of cash at the time no doubt...but my crafting styles and techniques change so time for a clear up.
I decided to tackle it bit by bit and only worried about the unit on the right and all the stuff in boxes on the floor or in the bottom half of the bookcase. This means it is mainly mountboard (who knew one person could have SO much mountboard!), Christmas stash and jewellery making supplies.
Now the after shot below may not look much different but I have 3 large bags of stash to give away and also a half empty unit!!! Result.
When the madness takes over again I will tackle stamps next (I don't think there will be many to be relieved of as I have stamped since I was into CB radio and my dad into Radio Ham in the early 70's and you used to get stamps made with your call sign-so I use them all lots), there may be hardly any gotten rid of but I am sure there must be a better way to store them. They are currently in blank clear VHS boxes with the "theme" on the front and then in drawers with similar 'themes'...Pinterest will no doubt bring up may ideas. Then next to sort out will be paper-not looking forward to that as its precious!!
So tidy desk means I don't want to mess it up yet so it still looks like this now!!!
My "Man Bites Dog" cards this week are 'Angry Exec Drops Lawyer'.....seriously some nice headlines one week would be nice!!!
Hope you are all having a good week and happy crafting
