WOYWW #119



Good morning everyone!  I'm doing this post on Tuesday afternoon and scheduling it to go live early in the morning so I can get everything done that has to happen on Wednesdays.  Keep your fingers crossed for me that this works the way it is supposed to! 

Well, here it is finally.....my new desk for my craft room.  My husband did some refinish work on it, as it had been sitting in our basement for several years, just alone and forgotten.  When I started talking about wanting to use it, my husband was hesitant because he felt it would cramp my style (too much clutter) in the room.  I just kept nagging on it and he finally started to work on it.  It sat in our garage for two months and each weekend he would do one little thing.  I swear, I thought I was going to have to finish it myself; but he finally got it ready...And can I just say, It does sit out in the floor and I do have to walk around it, but I love, love, love it!!!  Another flat surface to fill up and don't you think I did a good job at that!    The second picture is of a triple dresser that holds a world of crafting supplies, ribbons, laces, junk...er....tidbits!  All those little things you just can't live without.  I bought  new spice display at Lowes and it is holding some of my most used punches...then my Copic Markers, My radio a lamp and a card display area.  Just off in the corner you can see one of the lamps for my photo tent.  Ah yes, the box I'm working on...I'm in the process of altering a cigar box.  I using dark browns and blacks and next I will be making some manly flowers and "stuff" for the top.  I haven't made up my mind yet what will actually go on top.

Well now you have seen a small part of my mess today.  I refuse to show the rest!  Just use your imagination!
Now I'm off to see what everyone else has done today.

But before I forget, if you are wondering why I've showed you this mess, it is Julia's fault!  Just go over to her blog Stamping Ground and you can read all about this addiction so many of us share across the globe.  Yes, my name is Glenda and I'm a paper addict!

What a beautiful desk and a lovely husband for doing that, must have been a labour of love. I think I would be afraid to use it in case I got glue or ink on it!! Enjoy xx

Worth the wait Glenda - your very own paper (almost) island! That dresser is a beautiful piece..the thought of it being filled with stash just makes it more so! What a gem your DH is, don't forget - it was worth waiting!

What lucky people we are to have husbands who helps us clutter our craftrooms, even though they don't really get why we NEED all that storage.
Happy very belated WOYWW
