What’s On Your Workdesk? Wednesday #128

WOOHOO!!!  #3 on the WOYWW link up!  YAY!!!!!!!!!!

Happy Wednesday WOYWWers!!  Today finds my craft room FILTHY!  My poor desk didn’t stand a chance this week!  I’ve been house/dog sitting for my neighbors for the past week (the ones that built my beautiful craft room for me) so I’ve been back and forth between the two houses.  I’ve been spending a few hours each afternoon crafting, but I’m so rushed, I haven’t been cleaning up after myself.  On top of that, I went to my first-ever scrapbook convention last Friday!  I have never seen so much scrappy goodness in one place…EVER!!!  My little artistic feelers were going crazy!!!  I came out of there with a TON of stuff!  Some of it is still scattered around on my desk.  I need to find places for a few things.  Now, Black Friday is coming up in a week and a half, and with all the good Joann’s and Michael’s deals that were leaked last week, I foresee having to find places for more stuff… *blush*

Also on my desk is a birthday card I’m working on for my sweet son’s 30th birthday on Sunday.  Ugh…I’m old!  He lives in another part of the country, so I won’t get to see him that day, but I know his awesome wife will make sure it’s great!  I really miss them.

So, happy Wednesday!  Let’s make it an awesome one!!

    Amy, that desk is heaven! Would love to take another peek after you've shopped at Joann's and Michael's… so jealous that we don't have these places to shop over here in the UK.
    Have a fantastic WOYWW!

  18. Spyder says:

    The trouble is there's just not enough time to comment, make things, check out challenges, so of course the craft room has to stay messy!! Happy WOYWW!!

  19. Julia Dunnit says:

    I had to enlarge the picture to see what all the mess was..and I see no mess! Just good space in good use, panic not..you must have at least another week to go before needing to stop and tidy! Conventions..argh..wonderfully sensory overload…hideous financial temptations! So glad you enjoyed!

  20. Unknown says:

    No one is going to be able to live with you after that first scrapbook convention. I bet it was fun. Have a great WOYWW to #3 from (don't ask how) #1 this week.

  23. April says:

    The card for your son looks lovely. I went to my first craft show earlier this year and hardly bought a thing! I was so overwhelmed by everything I couldn't think straight! :o) Enjoy your new goodies. Thanks for sharing – April @ #73 x

  24. Angela says:

  25. Marjo says:

    Yikes, hadn't even thought of Black Friday…think I will buy online, that way I will have a few extra days to make some space…lol

    Thanks for the peek and sharing. Hope you are having a great WOYWW,

    Aaagh I'm part of the messy desk club this week too! It's wonderful you go to go to the scrapbook convention and load up just before the holidays and dog sitting well that's its own reward! Happy WOYWW #18 ~Robin Panzer Art Studio 33

    My desk is a Big Mess to. I think mine may be messier than yours. Getting ready to clean it up. Going to start on making some Handmade Gifts for Christmas. :0)

  28. okienurse says:

    messy=busy and creative! Thanks for the heads up on the deals next week! Love the card! I think my husband could use something like that on his birthday cause he always accuses me of being too froofy!(is that a word?) Thanks for sharing. Have a great week! Vickie #76

  29. Elizabeth says:

    Doesn't look filthy to me – lots of goodies there, yes, but filth, no. We don't have Black Friday here in Scotland, or Joanns, or Michaels, which is probably just as well or I would be blushing too. Have a great week. Elizabeth x #78

  30. Macpurp says:

    looks more like a busy desk than a filthy one! hope you had fun at the scrapbook convention.
