It's Wednesday so that means its once again time to share my "room of shame",
or more popularly known as "What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday" where crafters across the globe share desks-clean, productive or hidden under paperwork (and not the crafting kind).
A month ago I decided to tackle the room and sorted out the bottom half of the book case and the boxes on the floor. Since then I have sorted out my papers and embellishments and gifted a couple of bagfuls of goodies to various friends (much better they get used rather than languishing in my room for another year). So I decided it was time to dust and clean the window ready for spring (I have NO idea WHY I decided to do this, I blame the tablets!!).
Now, having Rheumatoid Arthritis means I get tired quickly and when doing heavy work I need to use wrist splints add to this I pulled something in my back Saturday (seriously, hit 45 and the body falls apart!!) which means I set my alarm clock and only worked for 15 minute stints before I rested for a bit. Yes it does mean everything takes three times as long but at least it means I am not bedridden after I have done the housework etc.
So I decided to remove the items from the window ledge and desk and gave the surfaces a good wipe down-its amazing how spray inks really do travel!!
By moving everything it means I can ensure it is all sorted in a systematic order and nice and clean (not that you can tell it from the after shot, but take it from me it is!!).
On the right is the one piece of card I bought at the Exeter show in February! It is a Kanban topper sheet (£1.60 and I think I can make 5 cards from it if I am clever with my existing stash). I plan on making the cards this week so will share them when completed.
My "Man Bites Dogs" cards this week are another Trumpism 'Blonde Tycoon Lost Thousands' though I would suggest he can be any colour he wants, it all depends which wig he wears and I really hope the thousands refers to the number of voters he looses!
And the great reveal.....
Now the after shot may not look 'that' different but believe me, after three hours hard work it is clean and not a paint splatter in sight!
So, why not join us? Full details can be found on the lovely Julia's blog with full instructions here
