It's time for a gander at all the crafty workdesks around the world Thse sneak peeks can be found at the lovely Julia Dunnitt's blog http://stamping-ground.blogspot.ca/ Stop in and leave her a comment and then go on to check out all the creative desks.
My desk is looking a little bare but don't let that fool you. I have been cleaning and reorganizing the set up of my room. I have been working on the redo for several weeks...but got slowed down with the tedious sorting that accompanies such tasks.
My back surgery is finally confirmed for Oct 1st. This is such great news as I am fed up with being slowed down. I am tired of being in pain all the time and look forward to this journey to regain my "old life". I'll be in hospital 3 to 6 days and then 6-8 weeks of recovering. I will be up and walking that first day!
So I am busy changing up my room as I won't be able to bend or lift for several weeks. I have placed 8 shoe boxes along the right side of my counter...the side I rarely show you as it is always piled high with stuff to be filed! Considering that this space is supposed to a spot for guests to work at, it seems fitting that I have finally cleared it off!
I have filed away all that, and more...and I have filled 2 shoe boxes with the bits and bobs for the wedding album I have been working on. I plan to have the iris box with the card stock and patterned paper for the wedding pages sitting out over there as well.
2 more shoe boxes are full of Xmas bits and bobs as I hope to churn out some Xmas cards.
Lastly I leave you with my ribbon masterpiece. I used to roll my ribbon and store it in jars on my counter. You can still see a few jars full of rolled ribbon on the counter that I have not ironed yet...as I have run out of the tag holders:(
It isn't working out for me as I can't read the words on printed ribbon, nor see the whole pattern on some printed ones. So I spent hours unrolling it, ironing each piece and then weaving it through ribbon tags.
I sorted by themes and the remainder by colour. For now, I have stored all the tags on shower curtain hooks as I had an unused set. I am going to hang them all on cup hooks installed just above eye level on the closet wall under the stairs. That closet is accessed from my scrapbook room and already is used for scrapbook storage. They will fit in there quite nicely. When I need some ribbon, I will just grab the colour ring that I need and bring it to my desk to fine tune selecting which particular ribbon to choose.
See you next week!
