Happy middle of the week!! Welcome to another edition of What’s On You Workdesk Wednesday.  For those of you that have visited my desk the past few weeks and found it clean and organized…well NOT ANYMORE!!  My desk is officially a creative nightmare this week!  I took a pic of both sides of it so you can see how truly disorganized it is! This is what’s on either side of me, when I’m sitting at my computer that’s in the middle.

How can it possibly take this much stuff and cause this much mess to make only three cards?!?!  Well,  two and a half cards really, since the third one isn’t even done yet!

For those who were asking last week what I was planning to do with the sheet of stamped leaves that was laying on my desk, you can see the finished card here.

For those of you who like to hunt for the WOYWW badge/button, here’s a hint if you want it…it’s in the top photo.  Good luck!!

So…here’s my dirty little secret.  Now show us yours!

Happy Scrapping!

    I have a strange desire to come over there with polish and duster and clean that all up for you!! Obviously cleaning my own room a bit at the weekend has warped my mind! Can't see the WOYWW button yet but will look again before giving up!!

    Oh I wouldn't say its untidy – just busy – you can't possibly make things and have a tidy desk at the same time! I have a cross stich pic that says 'Only dull women have immaculate homes!' – that's my excuse anyway!

    Even if you think it looks messy your still creating ad that is the most important thing.

    I'm not gonna lie, it does look messy, Amy, but underneath or behind all that, it also looks very organized! Have a wonderful week! Darnell #19 (for now)

    ya finally a messy desk!! I am back from my crop so my brain is mush so I will check back in the morning for the badge!

  12. Sylvia/LittleTreasures says:

    Thanks you make me feel right at home. I feel I have accomplished a lot but it sure is not visible. I feel good just having time to post and take the picture. #34 wishing you Happy WOYWW and have fun creating

  13. Sandi McLean says:

    I prefer to say busy but that's because mine usually looks worse than this 🙁 Maybe productive is a better word? Hugs, Sandi #37

  14. okienurse says:

    ahhh Amy! I am always asking myself that! I think if I cropped in a huge barn the whole darn thing would be a mess but OMG! what fun! Have a great week. Vickie #41

  15. Julia Dunnit says:

    Well I'm hugely relieved frankly..and if you get three cards out of that coverage, I'd say you are doing really well! Love the card in your previous post, such richness of texture.

  16. Helen says:

    What a lovely space you have to work in – we always seem to get out so much "stuff" don't we!! Helen, 6

  17. Unknown says:

    Your desk still looks lovely, even when messy! Love the typographic print on the wall. XX

    Your desk is truly not that bad. Mine has been far worse, although I am trying hard at the moment to keep the space clear to actually work there. I hope you are going to show the finished cards. I did have a look at the one with the leaves and it is really lovely. thank you for sharing it with us. Have a good week. xx Maggie #88

    I just love your work space!!!!

  25. LisaDV says:

    I love your busy craft space with all of your counter space. I totally need more of that. I'm off to look at your craft room tag, as your stamp ink storage looks like these foam core storage units I've seen, but better.
    Wednesday Blessings,

    Hi Amy,

    Still visiting desks…. Isn't it just amazing how much stuff you have to drag out just to make a few cards! I do it all the time – no matter what type of project I'm working on. Yep, I honestly think that creative minds are messy!!!

    Happy WOYWW

    Amy, I wish I had that much work surface to mess up! I have the smallest desk to work on and it gets smaller still when I start to craft! I know what you mean about getting all that stuff out for a few cards – but then again, it's like it if you are only doing one – so 2.5/3 is a massive bonus!

    Anyway – sorry I'm late – It's my undoing in life! Late for everything/1

    Happy WOYWW
