LOL! I am SO out of practice doing WOYWW that last week I totally forgot to add the link back in my post. THIS week I was so consumed with cleaning and reorganizing my space to move all the beads and things I had front and centre for making knitting stitch markers and shifting my art journaling supplies to a more usable location and FINALLY (after only 4 years!) trying to get the rest of my stuff under control that it kinda slipped my mind that I should pre-prepare a post for today. Shocking. I almost skipped it totally, but what kind of track record would that be, a run of ONE?
So I have not one, not two, but THREE desks on show, none of them in good shape. My knitting friend who was here yesterday for a quite cold, socially distanced knitting session out in the garden, asked me what the heck WOYWW was. I explained. Now, if she sees this, she will realize the full horror of my craft room. Words are inadequate to describe it. (waves to Kirsty….)
Not as bad as it could be – my desk where my monitors sit. Usable, just about. You can see my 2nd hand Cricut, a first gen one that still has 1.1 firmware so I can still use SCAL on it. Yes, yes, I could probably buy a new Silhouette and be the better off for it, but frankly, I have this one and it works well enough. Mostly I cut the occasional paper stencil or mask. To be completely honest, the Cricut is actually on desk 4, but right now you can’t actually see that. Maybe one day….
Holy crap. This one is what I might call my primary desk. At the moment it is littered with stencils (bought ones and my own) and things like the texture plates I made AGES ago from textured wallpaper stuck to cardboard. I am in the process of sorting them out and organizing them into usable storage, like binders, etc. It’ll take me the rest of the week, I’m sure, to accomplish that! Much of my art supplies have moved there, but they are just out of frame.
This is the one in front of the window. My plan is to have it ready for Gelli plate printing and deli-paper stamping and Copic colouring. The lighting is crap at the moment but the little unit on the window ledge is full of texture tools and foam stamps, etc.
With any luck at all, next week will reveal a much more organized and tidy space. I can dream, right?
Apologies in advance for visiting without commenting to any who have their Blogger blog set to disallow ANONYMOUS comments (or ones where you can comment with a name and, if desired, a URL) – I could comment if I wanted to create a Blogger account and log in to it, but frankly, Google gets enough of my personal data that one more cross-reference point for them is just a step too far. Feel free to click away if reciprocal comments is your requirement. Trust that I enjoyed seeing your desk even if I wasn’t able to say so!
Have a lovely Wednesday! Off to examine desks much more organized and full of actual creativity than MINE….
