WOYWW... Erm.... A Big Fat Mess!!!!

Another Wednesday... which means it is time for our mammoth snoop, I mean visits... around Blogland to see what everyone is up to... headed up by Colonel-in-Chief Desk Inspector, the inimiatable Mrs Julia Dunnit... if you have no idea what I am waffling on about CLICK HERE to be transported, by the power of the t'internet so see Julia's blog, where she explains all... So today on my desk... after a baaaad night not sleeping I eventually got up and doodled for a bit til the meds kicked in then got out the stuff needed to make my SSS&S entry... I missed out finishing last weeks so I am determined to enter this weeks *just so happens to be my FAVE theme* LOL




However... I have noted a lot of comments that praise me on my tidyness... and I feel a bit of a... well, erm... fraud (!) because I have this dark secret that hardly anyone ever sees... you see, I have another desk... which is there, ready and waiting for when crafty friends come to play... but I have this reallllly bad habit of just dumping what I have been using and making onto it. Every so often I steel myself and tidy away the stuff... but I have been a bad crafter and you can see... I haven't been putting my stamps back on their storage sheets, I haven't been putting away my artwork and I generally have been showing signs of sluttish behaviour towards the whole heap of stuff... And there was me promising myself my new room of stash would never get into the mess like the old one... mmmm, that didn't last long!



I need to get it tidied but I have a reallllly good excuse not to do it today... because today is special... it is exactly 11 years since the day me and Grim first met! Now where did that time go??? anyways... in honour of this day we are going to go shopping (I need frames from Ikea LOL) and then hopefully, if we can get tickets and pain permitting... we are going to see Shrek the Third... I love the Shrek films... especially Donkey... but most of all Puss in Boots and I cannot wait to see Puss all flabby and cuddly.. have seen a trailer :O))



Oh and before I go... I have my last ATC from last week up for grabs... if you click HERE it will take you to the previous post where you can leave a comment to be entered into the draw. I will post worldwide too so if you are one of the globetrotting WOYWW crew, please do join in :O)) Right, time for me to get my old carcass into a very deep and very hot and very bubbly bath... have a grand day... TTFN

Helen said...

Oh, all those stamps! I am amazed you don't put your stamps away as you finish with them - I thought you would be so organised! Have a great day out with Grim - can you buy me .... ok, maybe not!

Personally, i love a messy desk! Shows that i've been grafting hard! Can't wait to see you've done for SSS&S this week!

Sheila said...

Those big black circle thingies have me intrigued too.

Cath Wilson said...

You rotten cheat, you! Good to see the real you at last - wondered how you managed to do so much in that tidy spot!! Looks far more creative now and makes me feel very much at home. Happy WOYWW!

Susan Allan said...

Even your 'untidy' desk is really sorted compared to my mess!

I have learnt that if the stamps are not put away, they can get damaged.

Your work space looks really inviting!!!

Don't say all those scallop edge sheets are Studio 490 stamps? You lucky ******. I'll come and tidy both desks for you so I can bribe you into pulling out my name for that ATC. Have a lovely day with Grim, back permitting.

Oooh yesss, all those Wendy stamps!!! Sorry you had a baaad night NOT sleeping - hoping today will be better so you can go out with Grim. Yet another "separated at birth" example, Jack and I met 10 years ago (at work), only about 2 weeks from now in September. We figure our first date was actually at work! Have a good! ~ Els. xx

Dawn said...

Oh My how many WV stamps have you got? I recognise the scollop edge as I have often looked but never bought as yet! Gongrats on your 'first met' anniversary and you have to tell what is GRIM short for or is it a pet name?

Love Dawn xx

Toodles and Binks (Galaxy Girl from UK STampers) said...

Lovely to meet you on Sunday Hels.

This is dreadful sluttish behaviour .... but then I am probably the biggest slut around!!!!

Need to get a closer snoop of the stamp binders (that you are not using)!!

Happy shopping and film going.

Nicki said...

Tidy later... do more crafting!
Take care

Tracy Evans said...

Wow Hels are those stamps in the files, look like Wendy Vecchi ones, how many do you have.... I have stamp envy LOL. I don't know how you manage to create so much in just a week. A great creative desk. Enjoy Shrek, I want to see that too oh and Toy Story. Tracy Evans x

mustavcoffee said...

Hi there Hels, it's always fun at your place I love visiting, you never fail to make me laugh. Your other desk is great that's how it should be, (I can't put stuff away too much 'cos I like to see it with other stuff, if you see what I mean)but there is always the big tidy up !
Happy Anniversary, enjoy the film, the Shrek films are great, I love Donkey too:D xx

Darcy said...

oh I take it all back, you are the messiest girl in the whole kingdom lol but you know they do say where there's muck there's brass....not sure how that helps, but hey i can convince myself that my messy room is a good thing.

Doone said...

ooh take extra painkillers - we wnet o see Shrek 3(D) and laughed till it hurt - at one point i turned to Niall to 'share the laugh' saw himin his 3d glasses and missed 2 minutes of the film I was laughing so much,

have a fab day and may you have another fab 11 years, hope the pain problem resolve soon - and such a relief to find out you are a craft artiste slut too

voodoo vixen said...

Good grief Hels, you have waaaay too many stamps!! Love the messy desk, its such a great idea to have two so you can continue working on the tidy one that I have taken it a stage further and got 3!! LOL

Rosie said...

It's very brave of you to reveal all with that other desk, you should reward yourself with chocolate for that! I still think your desk is nice and organised though ... and I'm also still GOBSMACKED by the sheer number of Wendy Vecchi stamps you have!!

whyducks said...

At last a nice mess horay! Hope you get to go to see shrek, poor back! I love Shrek too, but havn't seen the new one yet. x

Chrissie said...

How lucky to have 2 desks! There's always a time for tidying... it's just not now!
Chrissie

Sunshine Girl said...

If you can put your hands straight on the stamp you need then its tidy in my eyes! love the way you have some stamps on a big ring there - I have just made loads of tags and I know I have one of those big rings somewhere - just need to find it now as I tidied it somewhere eons ago!

Netty said...

SHOCK HORROR, stand back in amazement!!!!........but it looks like organised chaos and there was me thinking you were neat and tidy.........lol
Have a wonderful day the pair of you and hope the pain isn't too bad. Annette x
