Another Wednesday has come and almost gone so it's time I had my What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday post done and linked up to Julia's Stamping Ground!

I managed to get to everyone on last weeks list by Sunday evening and read each one and commented on each one!  It's quite a feat!  There were 187 entries!  I'm glad I did it and I saw some fantastic desks and work spaces and picked up a few ideas on storage solutions etc.  So I really enjoyed my journey around blogland, but I don't think I'll be doing it every week!  I had very little time left to craft, and that sort of defeats the purpose of the whole thing! lol

Thanks to everyone for the sympathy over my sore finger last week - I'm sure you'll all be pleased to know that it's all healed up and isn't sore any more (I'm sure you'll all sleep better tonight knowing that!).
I also had a few comments on my light box/tent thingy.  I bought it off Amazon and it came with 2 wee lights, but they emitted very yellow light so I put them away and I use my daylight lamp instead.  It folds flat which is great for my small craft room, so I put it up and then away every time I use it.  I got it cos I can only ever really craft in the evenings so it's usually always dark outside when I'm taking my pics and I just wasn't getting good quality pics at all (it also means that I don't always have to tidy up the mess on my desk!).  So, I would recommend one to anyone who thinks they need one.  I know people who prefer not to use them but they are generally able to take their photo's during the day.

So, onto my desk this week...

Not a lot to show this week,  I got the new limited edition pro-markers so I was just adding them to my pro-marker colour chart and adding coloured stickers to the lids.  I was also filling in my "to do" list as I realised I have quite a lot of cards that I have to get made in the next few weeks and I need to keep track of them.  I remembered that I made this wee book about 2 years ago so I thought I'd put it to use.  I've now got it hanging off a hook over my desk so it's at easy reach.

So I'm late as usual in posting - hopefully I'll get to visit a few other desks over the next few days, but maybe not them all this time!

Thanks for looking and for your lovely comments - and hello to another new follower! :)

So glad to see other people log in their supplies too. it really helps keep track of what you already own, doesn't it?

Thanks for the update about the light box.

Hi, you are so organised, adding your new promarkers to your colour list and your cute to do book. Visiting 187 desks must have taken an age, if your connection speed is as slow as mine and your right it does defeat the purpose, if you you are left with no time to craft. Have a great day, Laura

Your desk is certainly tidier than mine. I would love to get around to everyones blogs but it would take me for ever and I have so much DT work to do so I will have to start with the people who stop by mine I think.
Love the cards.

Hi Sheena,

I know what you mean about trying to make it to every blog! I didn't participate last week as I didn't have photos of my desk but I still snooped around. This week my goal is to visit every blog by Friday night (it's Thursday afternoon right now) so I KNOW I'm going to be successful. I want to do some creating this weekend. You are right - that's what it's all about!


lisa said...

Phew, I'm so glad your finger has healed up!!! lol.
That is some achievement getting round everyone, did you manage to get any sleep for the last week!!
Your colour chart looks amazing, you are so organised.

it somehow makes me smile to think that you made a to do book (which is really great by the way), and then it takes a couple of years to get round to using it...I love that!
