WOYWW


It's Whats on Your Workdesk Wednesday again, so here is the trusty mat showing you what I'm up to today ... which in case you don't recognise anything is constructing storage for my (only two) sets of Nestability dies. This isn't my original idea but I can't remember where I got it from! Anyway, I bought some magnetic sheets and stuck them into CD cases. The nesties then store brilliantly inside and a Dymo printed label on the spine tells me which of my two sets it is! Well I'm planning for a future in which I have a lot more .... so there you go, Inspiration Wednesday!! I shall take a bow ....

But, because of a number of complaints last week - I have also photographed the desk from a much wider angle. This provides proof positive that I can do messy if I try, in fact that greenish pot of painting water is still there from last week. Yuk! Anyway, this is my idea of a complete scrow which needs urgent tidying up. So what else is on there ... well there's a list of colour schemes I'd like to try out tucked under the mat, that ATC is still there, and the new metallic embossing powders I've been playing with. Oh yes there's another ATC that I made for a challenge and haven't got around to uploading, but I realise its just not very interesting this week. I will try harder in future.

I LOVE your desk ... so tidy and roomy ... could we swap??? ... mine is getting on my nerves. I do have a tattered floral die ... bet you are tempted now :0)

Paula Gale said...

Rosie - shame on you - not even the messy crafters would leave paint water on their desk for a week - that's probably cos it would get knocked over when hunting for something under piles of stuff LOL

Nice to have a wider shot of your desk though.

Oh how delightful, a giant window desk, S C R U M M Y, and tidy too.. think i'm gonna have to fight Linda as i too want your desk lol
Oh and thanks for reminding me, i too need to make myself some sort of nestie storage, although i was thinking more of a book type thingy, but i do like the cd case idea!

Kaz said...

That's still tidy, but I will let you off because you have such a lovely desk and such big windows (I love a bay window myself). xx

Jackie said...

Your messy is not my messy....

Julia Dunnit said...

OMgee - that's a scrow!! Take a bow indeed, I nearly sprayed tea over you! Great storage idea and I do admire your ambition in the preparation of a storage system. Fab.

Jan said...

WOW..another nice neat desk!! Mine is a terrible mess :)

Helen said...

Great wide angle this time! The stamp you admired in my drawer is by Wordsworth (code S093-R but I can't remember where I got it - and there is a price sticker on it - it was £12... yikes, I don't normally pay that much for that sized stamp!) but it is lovely.

LadyBug said...

Your desk is pure orginaised bliss for me :) I found a shop today that sells loads of red polka dot china!!!! i ran away before my purse could jump out of my handbag :)

Foil Play said...

Lovely desk - and great storage idea for the nesties :-)

I use magnetic sheets for nesties too, but keep them all in one plastic box (peel off sized) so I can flick through them.

Penni said...

Very organised!!

Great idea for the nesties, even if it isn't yours, I've got three sets right now but I also predict more arriving in my life!! Love the birds eye view you have out of the window and I can't believe how long your cyclamen is flowering for! Are you sure it's real!!

Hugs

Andrea - Wales, UK said...

Great view of your desk this week...but i wouldn't call it messy!!

Spyder said...

I use magnetic strips in my CD cases with nesties in.but I have seen them hanging from shelves with magnets too, think your sheets are waaaay better idea

Diana said...

Nice workspace. I love that shelf at the back -- great storage idea that. It DOES make a difference to see the wider view--get a better feel for what the space really looks like.

Cardarian said...

Thank you for the great idea for the Nesties but I don't know where I could get those magnetic sheets..where do they sell them? I love your pinky stuff ha, ha the same color as my room, but you are so lucky to have your workdesk by the window! I can't have that! Love your work space!
Hugs,
Cardarian

Debra said...

The desk still looks rather tidy to me! Have fun creating.

Jane said...

Fab idea for your nesties! And I love all your pink storage!

Angie said...

Sorry ...that desk is certainly not messy ...no where near....despite the green water lol

Great storage idea...perfect for future organization

Ikki said...

Love your workspace - nice big work area. Nesties should carry a warning "Addictive" - you just want more and more, as you will see in the Cupboard. ikki

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

I love your organized work desk. I could craft there. Even your messy is neat. I've seen those nest thingys, but have no idea what they are used for. Can you tell I'm not a stamper or scrapbooker? That's the fun of this whole blog collaboration, though. It gives me a chance to see others' studios, and to see what products are out there.

Sorry I'm late getting here. Hope you had a great WOYWW.

Michelle said...

Love the storage idea for the Nestabilities - I've recently discovered them and can't get enough! Please let me know where you got the magnetic sheets from if you don't mind. Thanks. Michelle

Linda said...

Rosie just give up...there's no way you could ever be messy. Your room is totally gorgeous and immaculate.
Now if you saw my work area at the moment you'd get an attack of the vapours!!!
