My name is Kathy Jo and this is my first time posting on WOYWW. (insert applause here) I am fortunate to follow some very talented and awe-inspiring crafters out there that participate in WOYWW. It is too fun seeing their work desks and what projects they are working on. Finally, I am taking the leap and sharing my space. My happy, messy, busy, crafty space...and I love it!
Above is my work surface. I go through spells in my crafty space. If I made a card using a particular pad of paper or stamp set and if I don't put it the item back in its place right away then I keep using it. For example, 3 days in a row I made cards using paper from the same pad. I guess that is not a bad thing and at least I am using the product! Yesterday I took photos of a Christmas card I made using a Quietfire stamp set, white embossing powder and some kraft paper. Yesterday evening I had a eureka moment on what to do with some scrap kraft paper and other papers...tags. I used some of the same product used on the card and I used scrap paper. Finally, I used some of those smaller scrap papers! BTW, don't be too impressed with the alignment of the tags: I had to organize them on the paper to ensure the glue and Stickles would dry. The desk looks a little more organized than it would if I was making a card.
On the left side of the desk you can see some items I have been playing with. One is a matchbox I made with more scrap paper. I picked up the matchbox die set at a yard sale and am enjoying using it. It came with not only the die but 3 spacer places. Score! You can also see a couple of bottles of Stickles. I won those a couple of weeks ago on the Sizzix blog when they were introducing the new line of Stickles colors. So lucky!
It was very interesting to take a photo of my messy desk and see what is really on it. It is a reflection of how I work, what I queue on my desk for future projects (all the stuff to the left), and how small of a workspace I really need. Perhaps I should start a Crafty BAU (like on Criminal Minds) and analyze WOYWW desks. :)
Thanks for stopping by and I look forward to
Have a great day!
