wednesday confessions...

...so you've seen my desk a couple of times now...and you will be realising that my way is not a tidy way to work...and my space is what his Nibs describes as the result of a *large craft explosion*...but what i didn't confess until now...is that this desk is not just for my personal use...its also where the family laptop lives...so this mess doesn't make Mr. Tidy~Pants happy at all, i can tell you!!!!

so, confession over...what can you see of interest on *my* desk today...well there are the remnants of yesterday's LO {which i'll show tomorrow perhaps}...there is some grungepaper covered in the Financial Times waiting to be a bunch of flowers for my FIL {an ex~bank manager}...a cardboardy tray waiting for an attack of alteration...and you see that container labelled *dave's stuff*...well...that is my little joke...like everything else in this room...its not actually dave's stuff...its just the bits he's allowed to use!!! :0)

hope you enjoyed nosing...and i'll hop off now and see what's on your desk today...

I think you should tell Mr Tidy Pants very gently that a Laptop is so called for a good reason - he can use it on his lap LOL

Thanks for sharing - your desk looks soooooo tidy compared to mine (which is our dining table - maybe you should give your DH a tour of all the other messy crafters shots out there :D then he will know how nice your desk is ;)) Need to play with my grunge paper now, look forward to seeing your LO and the roses.

Fabulopus crafty space! Sorry I'm late,that's the trouble with having to work Wednesdays!!Loved my snoop but your'e still very tidy!! So glad my hubby has his own laptop.. But just think what it would be like if the computer was in his work place, like ...the garage with all the oily rags and bits of car everywhere...bet he wouldn't tidy it up!

haha I love your name for him and that he is only allowed a small bucket of stuff to use. My OH knows better than to ask to use anything at all in my room lol

Gez said...

hehe! I love your desk & think everyone should thank you for you allowing them into your crafty space. I'd have to hide some stuff for fear of it walking!
Hope you have a lovely week. Gez.xx
