What's on your Workdesk Wednesday 52-Happy Anniversary

I joined this last week for the first time and although I tried and tried there was just no way that I could comment on every single workspace I managed to look at.
Thank you to Julia for organising this and congratulations on your anniversary.
There are some amazing ideas out there and some extremely talented people. I just want to say thank you for sharing....it's like opening up a window to a world of crafters and thank you for all the wonderful comments I received....okay, enough dribble. Knee still quite painful, been back to docs and am off work for another 2 weeks....hopefully will be having a scan within the two weeks.On top of that, as if the knee problem isnt enough, I have a chest infection so am on antibiotics and cough medicine...yaks. It still means that I am struggling to get in the craft room but, over the week I have managed to come up with this for the WOYWW challange


this was a fruit drink container....not a big one



I decorated it with paper that was out, SU ribbon

and then put my flowers on the top of it.


I will be using this to store the flowers in that I make so that they are always on my desk, quick and handy to attach to the projects I make...when I get back into crafting.

This is a picture of a card that has been ongoing for about 3 weeks, it's still unfinished but it will get done, eventually. The red basket contains all my insert descriptions. When I put an insert in a card, put everything in the cello bag, I also add an insert description so that I know what the insert says. I have been building this collection up for over 4 years.
As my desk is rather tidy (and boring), this is what I have on one wall, my drawers full of essentials and my card rack with cards that are nearly ready...they just need a sentiment, an insert or just a bit of glitter.

Thanks for having a read and I hope you have a lovely day. Off to have a gander at everyone elses work area now....it will take me the week.

great little pot, always better to hand things to hand so you can find them quickly, and a bonus to have them in such a pretty container.

Tracey,

You have an amazing work space. Looks like there's tons of room there, too. I tried for three days to make it around to everyone last week, but I know I missed people, too. Happy WOYWW.

wow Tracey - where to start... well first of all i'm sorry to hear you are not well - that is not good... Hope that improves soon.

Secondly - your project is super and those flowers on top are scrummy.

Next - how organised of you to have all those sentiments in the basket ready - i once printed a load out but come to put them in the card and id gone off them...

lastly, how organised is that rack of cards you have ready??? Well done on everything and hope you are well soon.

Big hugs and happy WOYWW anniversary to you...

Hi Tracey, it's always nice to have a decorated container than a plain one! And so convenient if it's near us! Love the drawers- what's in them? and your very own card rack too! Wow! Patsy from
