WOYWW #187

 
Good morning everyone and welcome to WOYWW!  I'm starting 2013 with a clean slate and I'm trying to do some organizing in my craft room to  make my space a little more user friendly.  I found an old cd case and decided it would make a wonderful storage for my Pro Markers.  I don't do very well with markers but have several and you can't use them if they are not where you can get to them.  I just slid cd cases into the slots and divided my markers somewhat in the color ranges.  I'm working on the long cd storage unit and it will also hold some markers that are just thrown into a bin and some new Spectrum Noir markers that I'm treating myself to as a belated Christmas Gift.  I had some already and purchased some on EBay at a greatly reduced price but still brand new.  I will probably take out the cardboard dividers and just use empty cd cases to separate that unit too. 
 
Most of you who follow me know what WOYWW is but if you just can't figure out what the heck this stands for it is "What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday.  Julia Dunnit is the creator of this madness and you can visit her blog here:  Stamping Ground

We all take a picture of our desk and post it to our blogs and then go to Julia's blog and link it.  Then we can visit each other's desks and see what is going on in our own little worlds.  Now I'm off to visit as many desks as I can.  I seldom get around to everyone's desk but I do try.  Have a wonderful day!

I like the idea of starting the New Year with a tidy up, just wish I could motivate myself to do the same! Your space looks amazingly tidy and well organised. Happy New Year! Anne x #7

Another tidy-upper! I have been having a sort out too. I quite agree about the pens needing to be easy to get at. Mine are in a purpose built storage rack but I have to keep it in a box on my unit as the sun would dry them up in here in the summer. Good idea to use the CD storage though. Kate x #66

TOOOOO tidy! I am spending the day desk hopping and tidying but the sad thing is it will be back to a huge mess by next Weds.

Happy New Year!

Hi Glenda, another desk that's all neat and tidy - I suspect I'm going to see a lot more this week :) Love your pen storage - and you are so right, if the pens are not out they are much less likely to be used. Wishing you a happy and healthy year ahead and I look forward to reading more of your posts throughout the year. Hugs, Elizabeth x #54

I think there's quite a few of us starting this year off with a nice tidy desk!!
Good to see you have two tools that I have - Grand Calibur (mine arrived on Christmas Day) and the Distrezz-it-all machine - that arrived on my birthday - lovely little machine!
Happy New Year and Happy WOYWW

The New Year makes you want to sort out and clear out doesn't it? I love your pen storage. My Hubby made me some last year and now my pens are always to hand and I love using them.
Thanks for visitng earlier and Happy New Year.

What a brilliant storage idea. I really love seeing how people organise their stuff, or art supplies if you want to be fancy! Good luck keeping your desk tidy. I'm expecting mine to be a mess long before next WOYWW.

Happy WOYWW,
Love Rachel, #6

Wow Glenda that's an incredibly tidy desk this week!! So if you don't use your markers much, what do you use for your beautiful colouring? Hope 2013 is a great year for you, looking forward to seeing more of your beautiful makes.

What a good idea for storing those pens, and such a beautifully tidy desk to start the year. Hope 2013is a great crafting year for you. xx Maggie #45

I used to have a CD holder like you put your markers in. I wonder whatever became of it? I know hubby absconded with it and it wasn't for markers. I'm all for having the important bits on hand, so here is to desk tidying!

Look forward to your creations is 2013.
