WOYWW 15th June 2011

My workdesk is looking pretty bare at the moment... sort of between projects and I needed to clear it because it was a big fat mess!
Empty except for the Graphic 45 album I made... which is still waiting for photos of my drama student niece... who hasn't responded to my request, which puts me nicely in my place, doesn't it? LOL
On my other desk is some stash that fell into my shopping basket this morning... well, it was a neccesity because Donna is making lots of fabulous journals with video tutorials and I want to be able to play along.... and I didn't have the stuff to do that... 
Someone asked me what I did with all the mini albums I make... well, most of them go to good homes but the ones I make that are personal, I store in this set of Ikea Expedits... yep... its mini book overflow!!
Don't forget to go to Julia, chief inspector of desks, and check out the list of fabby desks to visit!!

  1. Wow, your desk is much cleaner than mine. Both of them, in fact. But your mini albums are truly overflowing that bookcase. I suspect it's time to increase your storage area, my dear.

    Saw that same clock at Helen's desk/floor. It must be clock thing this week. I have the mask of that clock, but I can't get it to work.

    Happy WOYWW from (don't ask how) #1.

  16. I wish I had a desk! It's the dining table that is always a mess. I love your New Orleans Journal! The idea of using so many different items to make pockets is fabulous. A great way to remember a wonderful trip. I grew up in Louisiana and worked in downtown New Orleans for 3 years before coming to Kuwait. Seems like forever ago! :) Have a great day. Tammy

  17. I don't even have one dedicated craft desk... and you have two! Not only that, but both of yours are wonderfully creative and surrounded by some amazing items!
    I love mini-books... but they are a bit addictive aren't they?! *lol*
    Have a wonderful WOYWW #106!

  23. What a wonderful array of mini books, it's something I keep thinking of making but never do, seeing yours has put me in the right frame of mind to get on and create one for myself.

  24. I keep all the mini albums and CJs in the guest room. That way when people stay they have something that isn't a big book to look at before settling down to sleep. I hate to be staying somewhere without my book and even if they have books for guests if you are only staying one night you won't want to start a book that you are going to leave.

  25. Oh you do make tons of journals! Will be looking at things you are preparing with Donna - ha, ha funny how things just fall into the basket!!!

  29. Wow! Just as well you took a photo or else we may not have believed it! Liking your ATG stand - very clever! I just turn mine upside down.
    I ordered some "stuff" recently too. Some came today but more coming hopefully tomorrow - well, it is nearly my birthday!! Even Hubby bought me some TH stamps but I wont use them until after Saturday - well - maybe!!
    Happy WOYWW!!!

  30. Wow, how tidy is your desk today?!!! I love your minibook storage. It's fab! I've just been bitten by the minibook bug and already I'm starting to think about where to put them all. I just know that I'm going to end up with quite a few!

  33. Remarkable how things fall into the shopping basket... Looks good stuff though. Do like your journals. I like making albums for photos. At the moment I'm thinking about how to do a photo essay about red motor scooters.
    Happy days, Ros. (114)
