Mess, mess, messy!

Oh yeah.. This is my desk!


It’s under there, I promise. I’ve been making 100 embossed wedding invites, complete with faux glass hearts. Also a birthday card. And this weeks cc2c. Still, my awesome hubby has bought me storage.. Lots and lots of new storage. Now if I could find time to build it all..

If you want to see desks infinitely better than mine, head on over to Julia’s place.

Finally, I must apologise to the recipients of my ATC’s. It seems, mentioning no names, someone forgot to pop them into the post as promised. So they only went into the post last Friday. I’m ever so sorry.

See you next week

    Good grief, don’t worry about delayed ATCs…most of mine didn’t go before Saturday, just couldn’t manage it…and they’ll all be a lovely surprise! Am extremely heartened by the sight of your desk, makes me feel normal…although for reasons that you have just experienced, I n longer do wedding stationery! When you can, do show us an invitation!

    Looks like a fab fob watch in progress. Will you finish before you fall off the desk I wonder?!

    Don’t worry about the delay, just extends the pleasure (why does that sound a bit rude?). Busy desk this week, I need to get closer to see that metal thingy at the front – looks very interesting.

    OMG! That could be MY desk at 8AM. It’s better know – I even took my cutting mat in to the kitchen and scrubbed a thick layer of grime off it!! – but when I am cleaning I’m not crafting so that sucks! Have fun 🙂

    Wow, that is a busy desk!
    Love the sound of the faux glass hearts on the wedding invitations, I bet they look beautiful.
    I’ve been working on wedding stuff too recently but am having a bit of a break at the moment while I wait for the bride to give me the details for her evening invites.

    Happy Crafting!

    LOL, I thought the video at the end of your post would be from you, didn’t pay attention to the small word “advertisement”, so here I sat waiting for you to come along….lol….silly me! Can’t wait to see your new storage, sounds exciting, get to work and put it together! lol waving hi from the hills of North Carolina 🙂

    Sounds like you’ve been so busy, a little mess is expected! The new storage sounds exciting, perhaps a few hints dropped to the other half would see it built for you!

    Oh I do love your desk, I don’t feel so bad about mine now! I think people will be pleased to receive ATCs later (I got one just today and was so excited all over again), if they all arrived at the same time it could be a bit of an anti-climax so well done you for waiting a bit! Thanks for your visit. Happy WOYWW, Anne x #30

    Oh my, all that embossing. You almost need an assembly line for that sized job. I notice that your working space seems to creep inwards until there’s not much more than a dinner table place mat of area! 😉 I know it well.
    Thanks for your visit.

    Lovely messy desk – loads of evidence of creativity going on there! I have left a comment on your finished pocket watch piece – it’s simply gorgeous!

    Thanks for your nice comment on my blog – glad you like what I’m doing! Sorry to be so long responding but I’ve been having problems with my comments awaiting moderation not being visible – it turns out it’s a Blogger/Firefox problem since the latest Firefox upgrade, so I’m temporarily using IE till they sort it out – hopefully soon!

    Happy belated WOYWW,

    Looks like you have all the essentials on your desk except the craft mat you know the one hanging up. LOL Oh storage is great, once built and once you have oodles of hours to sort your stuff and use it, then you change your mind and ooopss a mess again. LOL I love your desk just the way it is,

    Have a great crafting week
