WOYWW = bet you thought it wouldn't last 3 weeks!

Here we are, its Wednesday and everybody all over the world is snooping around other people's desks! (not sure what I am talking about? You must be the only person in blogland that doesn't, so go check out Julia, our leader's blog to find out http://stamping=ground.blogspot.com )
I bet you did not believe that my desk would be clean for three weeks and actually get better with time, well, I did not believe it was possible, but here it is in all its wonderful glory! Looking even better than ever.
You will see the usual got to have close tools, a zillion scissors, some pens, some glue and other important things in my orange buckets and my caddy. There are the stamped MFT image that I want to colour later, the LO that I still haven't gotten to (Mr. Mojo is gone, OK?!) and the beginning of a batch of wedding invitations for a friend's son. Other than that, only clean 'white' space. How did I do it? Its all DH's fault. He found a paper stand at a shop thats closing down and bought it for me, bless his little heart. Thinking and saying that I would never be able to fill it LOL! Well, I had to prove him wrong didn't I, took me a whole day to rearrange the playroom, but look! Now I have my old single paperstand and the glorious new double one!


Of course I have to remind you of DH's other contributions to my playroom. First there is the ribbon storage, that he said I would never be able to fill, poor man, he never learns, does he? Look at the overflow on top and on the shelves!

Here is my sewing cabinet (a gift from my dear mom and dad, many years ago) with some of my creations on top and next to it the chocolate stand that DH saved from the dump.


Tired of looking at my room yet? Thought I would show you the gifts I made for the top four leaders of our school. Their term of office starts when we go back next week. Made each of them an altered notebook and a postit holder. Hope they like it.


Here are some close ups of the note books. All coloured with my beloved Copics and glitterified with Stickles. All cardstock is Bazzil and dp from my scrapbox. Ribbon is from my stash. The first one is for the SRC president, She has the loveliest black hair and this new WOJ stamp reminds me of her.

Next one is for the head girl, the'queen' of the school. She has the poise and grace of a real princess, so I thought this image would be perfect! Also a new one from the WOJ club.

Next one is for the head of Committees, she is an avid swimmer and water polo player, so hence the mermaid from the WOJ club.

Last, but not least, the head of Houses. She is responsible for the Spirit in the school, so out came the Cheerleader Tilda from my new Magnolia club. Coloured her in school colours and the poms are for the three houses.

Congratulations if you made it this far, this was a marathon post!

Have a great week everybody, see you soon!

  2. I like a challenge too and if my DH said 'Oh, you'll never fill that box/shelf/storage' (delete as applicable), well, you've just got to prove them wrong, haven't you!! I think your ribbon tower is fantastic - mine are scrunched up into teeny tiny drawers.... husband, where are you?? Come and have a look at this...!!

  17. ha ha ha

    it's a good job you think you are too far away to visit, that work table would be covered in stash and mess and ink and paint and paper and glue and shaving foam and starch...within five minutes of my arrival.

    thanks for dropping by my desk this morning.

  21. My kind of desk and I'm now suffering serious storage envy :) What a generous and thoughtful husband you have, and clever too. I've just got to show my DH your ribbon storage - he's a whizz at knocking up that sort of thing too so maybe I'll get lucky. I'm sure the notebooks sets will be really appreciated - they are lovely. Have a great week. Elizabeth x #51

  28. I begun to think you were not crafting when I spied that tidy desk. Wow, what a DH you have got! Not only the paper and ribbon storage but the rescued chocolate stand too. All look absolutely fab! Let him keep issuing challenges saying you won't fill these things if it means he gets you more storage - a girl can never have too much.
    Thanks for the good wishes and thanks for the snoop. Hugs, Neet x #5

  37. Hello again Tertia.
    Thanks for visiting. Interesting how names do the rounds of places. The Kimberley, as it's known here, is a huge region in NW Aust that is wild and largely inaccessible. There are some aboriginal communities, large cattle stations, and otherwise magnificent gorges and rivers. The Gibb River Road that traverses the area is notoriously horrendous to drive and death to tyres. It is part of an ancient Devonian reef that is mostly lime stone which creates these amazing rock patterns. Enough said. It's great country.
    Take care,
    Ros.

  41. What a great post! Love your work area and how you have those little "work stations" set up. That paper storage rack is awesome and your husband was really sweet to get that for you. He certainly is a keeper. Then to the gifts you made. I'm just blown over at the thought that went into each one and how the images were selected for each. You are certainly very thoughtful, and I know that they will love and appreciate them. Great post! Best, Curt
