WOYWW # 306 {a clean desk}

Happy Wednesday Deskers. You can find the link up at our hostess Julia's blog seen here.

 I cleaned. No, I mean for reals who knew this table really had this much space? one thing I removed completely was the wire dressform candle holder that I had filled with scrap ribbons. ( I never take ribbon out of it to use, I still walk into the closet to find the color of ribbon box I want to poke through) I also took my MISTI out of the tray of larger clear blocks that is in that letter sorter under this table and put it on the table. ( not sure yet if I will invest in a cover for it) so far I have not gotten it dirty yet. I have used it a handful of times ( mostly to reink sentiments and or restamp things on watercolor papers) that part of it is fabulous. ( sometimes makes me wish more of my stamps were on clingfoam...) but, so far I have not unmounted a single stamp since I got the Misti although I have chose to buy some I would have normally gotten on wood on cling.

 I am thinking I need a new cut mat, I know its double sided but, I really don't care for the shade of yellow on the flip side. and I just bought one of those Gyro cutting tools so, not sure how it will like hitting all the unhealed cuts on this mat...

 I took all the stamps out of that metal display stand, and moved all the tools that were in the red wooden tray to it, then moved all those stamped and diecut sentiments into the red wooden tray.
(see below)
 Consolidated all the little jars of brushes into one flower pot of them.
(sentiments & charms I want to use soon)
 I had all these stipple brushes in a princess house basket that was smaller than this wooden kitchen drawer organizer tray box and I put all the brushes into this ( even the ones that have not been inked yet)
what you see when you reach the top of the stairs.  btw these were taken Sunday afternoon so, yes I have made cards since then and yep, it still looks just like this.

p.s Stacy, I don't think you've added your link to the linky list. I found you by being nosy and clicking on your name in the comments section - I didn't add you myself as wasn't sure how you tag yourself but thought I'd let you know x

Carmen said...

Or if you did, just ignore me, I'm probably having a funny 5 minutes ;)

cath doher said...

WOW! Can you come to my house? Looks wonderful.

Eliza said...

OMG you have a Misti I was playing with that today with my bestie it is such an awesome setup for stamping. They are really hard to get here in Australia so we imported ours direct from the creator. You will have to show me what you make with yours. Love your space what a great tidy up you have and yes i wouldn't use the yellow side either. Invest in a good healing mat it is well worth the investment. Thanks for visiting.

Hugs Eliza & Yoda

Now that is what I call a proper tidy up! And reorg too.
I had no idea what a MISTI was, so I googled it. Sounds great. I'd love to have one.
Have a great week,

Sharon Madson said...

sounds like you have been busy rearranging and organizing stuff. I have a couple of the mats also and finally went out and bought a glass mat to do most my careful cutting on. Love to snoops through your desk! Thanks for sharing. Have a great week. Vickie #8

Hi Stacy,

WOW! I'm quite impressed with your clean up and organization! I should be doing that instead of sitting at Starbucks using their free wifi while visiting WOYWW posts.....

Thank you for visiting me earlier. I'm slowly making the rounds.
Happy Belated WOYWW
