What's on Your Workdesk? Wednesday # 245

Good morning and welcome!  It is Wednesday and once again we gather at Julia's blog and show off our spaces for each other to snoop, I mean to visit each other's blogs.  Just take a picture of your space and blog about it and then link over at Julia's blog.  She has instructions there.


OK, when I open these doors for you, I'm showing you my soul.  I've been working in here some lately because I tend to squirrel away "stuff" in here that I really don't need right now, but maybe soon. The bottom shelf is just a mish mash of things that really could be thrown away but I keep thinking I could need it soon.  I love to alter things and nut tins and oat boxes are a favorite of mine.  I've sort of been working on some of my papers.  I don't have a lot by some standards but for me my stash is growing.  I began with no papers and always made my backgrounds myself.  It is nice to have papers but I find now I don't want to use them because I might have something that needs it more later.  I guess that is how we all become hoarders of a sort.  I'm not going to apologize for this cabinet; I actually love it and mostly I know where everything is.  I love that I can close these doors and nobody knows what I'm really like!

So there you have it.  I've shown you mine, now you show me yours!

That really looks good to me!!! It goes back to the more we have the more we save/want. I the same way with some pretty papers that I have, I love them so I hate to use them... down deep I thing theres something wrong with that for me :) !!

Becky said...

Oh Glenda...I would almost kill to have storage like that, lol. It looks so organized. Someday maybe I'll post my area...I have a little area in my hubby's workshop and absolutely no organization. It's sad compared to yours, lol.

Elizabeth said...

I like your cabinet too - so full of stuff that will come in useful in time. And what makes it even better is that you can close the doors - much tidier than my open shelves. I'm not joining in with WOYWW this week but your shelves caught my eye :) Elizabeth xx

What a fun, organized cabinet Glenda, if you think this is messy then you might need to get some new glasses! I don't mind having my stuff on shelves and just showing when it is messy...I like my closets neat...I guess I tell it like it is! but I do love your cabinet!I see some more borders! Happy day to you, I guess it is Wednesday!

Love the idea of being able to hide it all away.
I have so many items I am saving ROFL

Oh, Glenda. What a wonderfully neat and tidy cupboard! My space looks like a bombsite at the moment - just haven't had the time to tidy..
Have a great week - and thanks for the link to the challenge - what a great idea. Must get thinking!

Your cabinet actually looks pretty neat and tidy to me. I would love to rummage around in there. I hear you about the paper -- saving it for something, but what? I, too, have an alterables shelf. However, I very seldom get around to altering anything because I'm not sure what I would do with it afterward.

Lea.H said...

oh wow you are so organised and have so much stash! :) Lx 91

Lunch Lady Jan said...

Well, that cupboard is a sight for sore eyes! How fab to have somewhere to shove your stuff and then shut it away out of sight!
Hugs, LLJ 39 xx

Nan G said...

Love the cabinet, it has......Doors! I've just reduced my paper stash down to about what you have. Need to purge more... Enjoy your snow hope it's not ice. Just visiting no number this week. Hugs

Robyn Oliver said...

That's a super Glenda and I understand it's great to close the doors but I must tell you my last years 2012 new years resolution was to stop saving that special paper for a special project because it's special for this project and to be honest I have so much paper/card that I'm sworn off buying any more this year. Cheers and have fun crafting this week RobynO#51

Hi Glenda,

How very organized!! I'm striving to have my supplies organized and easily accessed. So far I've put what I think I will use most of the time in the dresser that is closest to my dining room table. Inks, paints, gesso, etc., in the closet.

Thanks for stopping by already.

Happy WOYWW

I'm a bit like you, Glenda. I make my own backgrounds, and even hate to cover them over. I don't have many purchased ones, and those I do have, have mostly been given to me. But I have other stash, similar to yours.

I really want to see your oatmeal boxes, so I'm going to have a quick snoop before I leave. Thanks for visiting me yesterday. Happy day after WOYWW from #1.

Dianne said...

Hello Miss Glenda,never have to apologize, and thank you for letting us into your soul, it's so neat, I have 14 shelves only 2 with doors the rest are very full, I'd also like to see what you do with the oatmeal boxes, I also usually make my own backgrounds but have a bit of bought paper.. Haven't seen the sweet dogs around lately hope they are doing good, thanks for sharing and hope you have a wonderful weekend, ((( BIG HUGS )))..

Starla said...

Well, your cupboard is still very neat and tidy!! I wonder how many I would need to keep my space somewhat tidy?!! hehe

I couldn't possible take a picture of my room at the moment. Your cabinet is fabulous. We are in the process of converting an old television armoire into a craft storage cabinet for me. My DH is going to remove all the junk inside, paint it white, and build spool holders and punch holders inside for me. In the meantime I have stuff everywhere!!! lol
Bear Hugs,
Carol
