WOYWW ... AND... A Shady Secret...

...I have got really caught up with the WOYWW bug...Julia started all this...so I blame her (LOL)...for what I am about to do is reveal a deep, dark, secret....yes folks, a secret that I have had to bear for a long time now...I have another desk!!!!! Usually, this other desk stays hidden away, far from the camera's prying lens...but the state of it today just made me want to show to you all...it really is bad...it is covered in a fine layer of dust, the bits and bobs of stuff that I can't find a home for...and...stuff I have been using and moved and not put away...and...anything new that arrives in the Room Of Stash has to go through a kind of quarantine...it gets plonked on there and waits a few days/weeks/months to be filed away correctly. I got the second desk a few years ago...it makes it easier when crafty friends come to play, we both have room to craft...yet, because of my untidyness, last time poor Andrea came for a visit, she ended up... crafting on the floor...it is true!




Anyways...now I have salved my conscience I can move on and show you my real desk, the one I work on...and the one that everyone keeps telling me is too tidy...maybe you will be less forgiving having just seen that photo ROFL



Work in progress today is a Ten Seconds Studio metal piece, using a mould/mold (still haven't got to the bottom of that one) and Pearl coloured metal, which I intend to colour with Glimmer Mists...hopefully, time on my side, I will be able to blog the finished piece later :O) Thanks for looking...and please...am I forgiven for pretending to be a tidy crafter, when all along I have been harbouring that mess behind me?

Kaz said...

Ooo now if you really want to tidy the 'other' desk, I am very willing to take some of those bits off your hands - just to help you, no other motive lol.
I do forgive you for the tidy desk this week!
ps if you want a few of those Stampotique images stamped just ask x

crafty creations said...

Can I come live with you too lol Love both your desks - I'll tidy up for you no problem !!!

flutterbycrafter said...

Wow, look at all those fabby stamps, and you're soooo tidy, how do you manage to stay so tidy, yet produce such stunning work? xx

Heavens2Betsy said...

I like it that you have hidden mess - it's a really cunning plan! Sadly, my whole artroom looks like your naughty desk however, I did spend an hour filing rubber this morning so there is a glimmer of hope .... x

patcrafts said...

A double personna a tidy one and an untidy one lol:). I prefer the untidy desk a lot more interesting stuff to look at and I always wondered what you did with all the art you post on your blog now I can see you hang it here and there.
My fingers are not inky they are covered in gesso at the moment.

hehehehehehehe well now we all know why your desk is so tidy! What do you mean, you have another desk for when crafty friends come round how can they use it when it's full of stuff?! Poor Andrea :( Can't wait to see the TSS thing when finished. In my dictionary it is 'mould' but it is a few years old and as language keeps evolving who knows perhaps it's acceptable to use either or will become so. You need to check with whatsername on Countdown ;)

Shazza said...

karenm said...

Wow you have a whole Stampers Anonymous corner! I love that you can keep your desk tidy and your mess elsewhere. I am the very opposite. I think my creative brain only works in a very small space LOL

Julia Dunnit said...

I KNEW IT!! I knew you couldnt be a seven shades of wee wee alterer and have a totally tidy spot!!!!!! Oh you made I larf this morning. You are forgiven of course, and I have broad shoulders so I can take the blame - as long as you understand that blaming me is just projecting your guilt!!!! And so you should - fancy making Andrea use the floor while you have a nice neat desk!

Ikki said...

Bet you feel better having come clean...must be the stash of Mamia's put the thought in your head! Lovely collection of stamps - I defo need more. They look great display on your shelves. ikki

ps. I think the tax refund email is a spam. So sadly no extra for more stamps!

Helen said...

Blimey! two desks, what I wouldn't give for one... although as you know, I don't mind crafting on the floor, so if Andrea's unavailable..... I spotted some stamps that I don't have in my stash!! Lovely lovely stamps, they are too.

Gez said...

Ooooh I wouldn't mind a bit crafting on the floor at yours! Both desks look fabulous. Have a nice day.xx

Linda Elbourne said...

Best you buy some more wet wipes ... your stock looks a little low *ROFLMAO*

voodoo vixen said...

Oh dear Hels.... in my scraproom at home in Scotland... the nice tidy one that I don't get to use!! I have two desks too... see we was sisters parted at birth!! One desk is my 'dirty'desk and its for all the painty/inky/gluey things and the other is my 'clean' one!! Love all your stamps... I'd play on the floor if you let me in...

Vicki said...

WOW 2 desks..... i'm a wee bit jealous!! hehe. lots of gorgeousness to see.....

Nicks said...

well done I am proud of you...

I can hear you now

'My name is Hels and I have another desk'

(round of applause)

Do you feel better now??

Clare said...

I think the first desk looks ok and I am deeply in awe of your stamp collection.
I love the tin on the left hand side of your working desk.

Debbie S said...

He He, its nice to know I'm not the only one who has a quarantine area. My bf thinks I have too much stuff and that's why I don't put things away when I get them - d'oh, how stupid of him not to realise all new items have to be admired whilst in quarantine.

Andrea said...

yes thats right chuck me on the floor while you craft on a neat desk LOL actually it was my choice to craft on the floor but I must add there is not much spare space there either, far to much stash Hels far tooooooooooo much xx

madelynb said...

Good Wednesday to you, Hels. Thanks for sharing the messy desk. I loved the little hooks screwed into the shelf. I will be putting in a few of those babies. Why haven't I done it before? Duh!!! I think you are still holding out on us. Where are your paper trimmers? Where are the adhesives? Where are the scissors? I know there is more!!! Loved the works in progress that are peeking hanging about. I am inspired. Have a great day.

Jacqui said...

Wow Gorgeous - great RED!

Kathy Eddy said...

Too funny! I also have two desks and a big long tsble besides! I wanted to let you know that I awarded your blog today with the Sunshine Blog award.

Pam said...

Wipso said...

Yvonne said...

You are now rumbled.. you are not a clean, tidy crafter at all, lol you are as bad as the rest of us .. shame on you , lol

Cardarian said...

After looking at these photos I have realised I definitly need a lot more stamps....ah I envy you sooo much! I think we all need to have another secret desk...
Lovely stuff!
Cardarian xxx

Kay said...

What a great idea.... when one desk gets buried under the mess, get another one to work on.... genius LOL

Angie said...

Your desk is very interesting ...especially as I'm just getting into metal ...loved the full desk too ... full of things I want to play with.

Wanda H said...

Honestly.. your messy desk doesn't look all that messy to me and it's full of inspiration... all those wonderful projects!!

Cazzy said...

You wicked woman, and a woman after my own heart!

Paula Gale said...

Hels - we feel so honoured that you were able to confess your sins and share your deep dark secret with us. I hope you can feel the weight lifted off your shoulders now and that your conscience is clear!!! You are absolved...!!!LOL.

Desk looks like I need to come and have a visit to play on the 'other' desk.

Paula x x x

Rachel said...

I don't think your hidden mess is all that messy! I'm not sure I want to think about what that says about me! And the shelves of stamps look so cool. I'm very jealous!

The Inky Minx said...

You may have come clean but that hidden desk certainly hasn't te he he.. if you expect me to come round to sort out ribbons the least you can do is clear a space so once i'm done i can sit and eat all the promised crisps,chips, chocs, and what not at a nice clear space pmsl.. i'm sorry but no amount of arm stroking will make me craft on the floor! rofl :P

Jennie said...

mmm the 2nd desk is always tidy when I come to play:) ...

craftytrog said...

nowt wrong with being messy hun! xx

Tracey said...

Wow! I'm all breathless with excitement, what a desk, don't change it, it's purfect.

butlersabroad said...

That's so funny! I wouldn't exactly say you've been deceiving us, but you've certainly been a little economical with the truth shall we say??!! Love that stamp collection! And they look like really interesting ones too. Cat's out the bag now, you know we're going to need to see both desks now!

Kate said...

Love the messy desk, you have an enviable collection of stamps, has Tim Holtz got any left or do you have them all, lol? ** Kate **
