Good morning lovely WOYWW people, and before I go any further lets do the housekeeping bit.
Emergency exits to your left and your right............ Ah that's not the kind of housekeeping I mean. If you arrived here by chance and wonder what WOYWW means, click on the widget at the side and you will go and visit the glorious WOYWW hostess, Julia where all will be explained.
Having got that bit out of the way I can procrastinate no longer, instead I have to hang my head in shame and show my mess, and mess it is.
This was yesterday morning and I was planning a major clear up because it had got so bad I had no room to put anything down so was resorting to putting stuff on the banister rail and the spare bed and the floor.
To be fair I sorted all the ribbons and put them away neatly, but then going through the blue boxes I found lots of UFOs in amongst the various bits, so I sort of fiddled and stuck a bit here and cut a bit there and waited for something to dry, and generally did very little tidying, in fact if anything I added more bits to the chaos.
Then hubby came home and we had supper and went out.

So the tidying didn't get finished, as a result this  is my desk on this bright Wednesday morning.
There's my well used Bigshot,  and beyond that, a selection of nearly finished objects, then the little box of bits, a tool box,an empty coke can and the ice cream box which has got Momento ink pads in it,  and at the far end there are still the two blue boxes which was what I started with. They end up with clutter being shovelled into them at the end of card club and, when I really clear up my worktop,I throw in all those things that do not have a real home.
So sorry there is nothing very exciting happening, and I have to do some sewing before I can get back to play and finish those UFOs.
Bless you for visiting and I will get back to you sometime.
Now I am off to see some happy desks
Happy Woyww

What a lot of room you have to cover up with your "stuff" and how lovely, light and airy it all looks. Your craft room looks huge!
You mention having had some gilding waxes replaced in your comment on my blog - I have had things replaced (Ranger Dabbers and Crackle Paint) but some of those dried up before I used them. We really should complain and get dates on these products.
Moan over, sun is shining, have a happy week!
Hugs, Neet xx

On the contrary, there's lots of exciting things to sticky beak at on your desk! What are you sewing then? See? I'm the noisiest person, lol!!

Love your joyous riotous creative space, Chris!! It looks like a great room with lots of light and space - like mine. Aren't we fortunate? Thanks for your visit and your nice comment. I'm glad your solar panels are proving so successful, and I know ours will be, too. I think everyone should have them! There's something really great about free electricity, isn't there, and getting money back for it too! Can't be bad. Mum is pretty good after her experience but we think her short term memory is getting worse... Still, at 93, what do you expect?!! I am so thrilled with my new church, and I know the Lord is going to use me there... according to the minister, he already is - "Her love of the Lord is infectious... we could do with more of that here!" Lol!!

Happy WOYWW,

It looks like you have some really pretty cards for your efforts. :-) When the time is right you'll get the mess sorted.

I love your "Keep Calm and Know that I AM God" sign, btw.

Hello Chris - I still have many ufo's and have really moved a lot of stuff from one place to another instead of really doing anything with it. Just not had time - hopefully next week :-) Happy WOYWW Anne x #20

I am so pleased to see I am not the only one with the desk full of bits and progress this week, it does help me to feel better. I hope you continue to be productive and keep that muse going.

Oh, I love the idea of telling us where the emergency exits are! haaa. Your desk is very full of goodies, as it should be! I've come to the conclusion that papercrafting is a messy craft and there's no way around it!

Peace, Kay (22)

Ah, Chris, we've all been disheveled and in this state! Your intentions are good and you'll get it all sorted in due time! I see lots of great goodies to play with and projects that are in various states of gorgeousness!! Happy WOYWW!!

I'm finally at the point where you will be in the next group of introduced new followers over at my place when I next post! Sorry I've been away and it's taken so long! Hugs, Darnell #18
