What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday # 293

Good morning everyone.  I'm just running through this morning on my way to Julia's blog and participation in WOYWW!  Each week we  take a picture of our space and blog about it then link it to Julia's blog and it becomes a world wide blog hop.  Loads of fun if you  like poking around in other people's spaces like me!   Several of you were asking about my closet of shame and I decided I would show it one more time, just because we are friends.

This cabinet holds so much "stuff" and I love that I can just close the doors on it and pretend like all is well here in my space!  It holds most of my paper supply and things that I don't use everyday and just need to be able to store.

and here is my desk this morning.  I know, I excuse for this hot mess! I'm working on some note cards for a neighbor and there is a Christmas card for next year in the background.  I use the embossing powder in layers over the circle photo and then placed it in the freezer to crack.  It gives it an aged look and I like the vintage feel of the card.

OK, I'm going to hush now this morning as I've gone from short post into the long post category and I don't want Julia to be after me.  Hope your day is a good one and we will talk later!

Hi Glenda,
I LOVE your closet! I could use two of those on either side of my bedroom window and it would be perfect! One for yarn and the other for everything else. Your desk looks nice and productive - I love the color of the ink pad, what is that?
Congratulations on winning my calendar. I'll get it off to you by the weekend.
Thank you for visiting me already!
Peace, Kay (12)

Thanks for the visit...Love your neat organized cabinet! But I really like that lacey die cut pretty. You always accomplish so much. Was my intention, but had to attend a health assessment for mom, and once I leave the house 1/2 a day or more is gone.. Then DH wanted to go for a beer and sandwich so my day completely changed. Hopefully today, just putting the clean up on hold ! Warming up here, might be 40 so want to take a quick walk also.

I love that closet, I wish I had the. Room but then being able to close the door could prove dangerous.78

At last your desk looks like mine. I have been trying to clean my room. But, had Steve in the hospital and back and forth for Dr.s visits and today another blood transfusion. So, I have not made much progress. Misery loves company so it made me smile to see you have 'a bit' of creativity going on! LOL!

Thanks for the earlier visit.
So that is your closet of "shame"????? Really???? I would be so lucky to have the space and for it to look so good. LOL
LOVE your Christmas card in the background.
Have a great week.
