WOYWW # 354 - Yay - I made a mess!

Good morning fellow desk snoopers! :-)
 
Are you all well?
 
Yes, it is Wednesday again and all around the world people are sharing their desks with each other thanks to the fabulous Julia at the stamping ground
Wanna know what it is all about? hop over to her blog to find out more.
 
So what's on my desk today?

YAY!!!!!!!!! It is messy!!!!!!
 
 
 
Actually, this was how I left it yesterday evening and I have come in to this mess this morning because I was too tired to clear it up.
 
Groan...I don't like coming in to a mess and having to tidy up before I can start crafting. And believe me I DO have to tidy up; it's the way I like to work, clean desk for a new project.
 
So, the past two Wednesdays my desk has been pretty clean. I think that may be because I was working on CAS projects...this desk is a complete reflection of the type of item I was working on at the time.    
 
 
 
What do we have?
 
Top left - my pile of scrap. Really must do something to reduce that!
In front of that are some stamps and white stayzon. I have distress inks, water bottle mister, distress crackle, gilding wax, a dirty paper towel (as you do!) some cog dies, and more stamps and ink.
On the windowsill there is a can of shaving foam, a box of gelliroll pens and distress crayons (probably shouldn't leave those in the sun!).
 
What was I making? 
This tag - I blogged it this morning and you can read more about it here
 
 
 
Well, last week I actually managed to get around to everyone's blogs! Thank you so much to those of you that were kind enough to leave me a little love last week. It warmed the cockles of my heart.
I do apologise if you have a google+ account because I couldn't comment on those posts...but I did read everything and visit everyone.
 
Thanks for stopping by. Do come back soon.
 
Hugs,
Sharon xx

Hi Sharon,

The tag is stunning, so so pretty! I love it, I think of the jungle when I look at it. I completely understand on the clean desk before a new project. I have to clear up my desk before I leave it, but there has been the odd time I've just opened the drawer and shoved everything inside.... Woops! Thanks for sharing with us, Lyns #17 xx

Morning Sharon. Great tag there! Well done. A lovely desk. I, too, prefer to work neatly - don't always succeed, though!
I'm so pleased someone else has problems leaving messages on some Google+ accounts... thought I must be missing something simple somewhere. Phew - maybe I'm not losing my marbles after all!
Take care. God bless.

HI Sharon, Thanks for dropping by my desk, and your nice comments, I'm afraid if I put the papers away I might forget about them and when they fell out of the drawer i had such excitement about using them.
But to your desk, have you been stamping with dies? on the right hand side of the main piece of paper on your desk are what look like blue stamped cogs. How do you do that? Seems a fabulous extra use of dies if you have, and I love the tag.
Thanks for sharing

Hi Sharon, loving that tag. Thats one of my favourite colour combos. I too have the white Staz-on, and I hate it, truly. I got caught by the hype, bought that, the pink and pale blue. Loathe them all, with a vengeance.Have a great week, Hugs Shaz #19xxx

Love your tag and I love your desk. My desk will stay a mess until I have completed a project and sometimes that is days or longer, but when my project is complete, I clean up my space for the next one.. however, mine never looks quite and good as your!! hehee!

Anne L said...

Good morning and happy WOYWW. I don't think your desk is to messy but I am the same way after awhile I have to clean up as I lose things under the piles.lol your tag is stunning and I love the cogs. Waiting for our craft store to get the distress crayons in bet they are fun to play with. Hugs ~Anne L #36

Lynda Beazley said...

Hi Sharon Your desk is quite tidy. I too like to tidy up before I start a new project although I'm getting really bad at putting things back in the right places! I love the colours on your tag, so pretty! Thanks for stopping by earlier.

Bernice said...

It's nice to see a busy desk - tidy desks always make me feel bad - I always seem to be most productive when surrounded by clutter!

Well done you for visiting everyone last week. Quite an achievement as there are a lot of us.
Your tag is great. I´m wondering what you use the shaving foam for, but I should probably go to the link, but I will do that later. I want to do as many comments as possible before midnight.
Happy WOYWW,
Thanks for visiting,
Have a good week,
Lisca

I like a good mess and I absolutely love that tag. Have a great woyww and happy crafting, Angela x 22

Lisca Meijer said...

I have no idea why there are two identical comments from me here....
I´d like to add that, yes, I have taken notes on what is called what and have actually written the whole process of what I did to create the layout in my notebook. I could have ordered an English version but that would have cost me a fortune and I could not afford it.
I hope you are having some decent weather in Portugal. We will be coming your direction in May to stock up on Vinho Verde. It´s an excuse for a little trip in our campervan.
Must go now..Good night
Lisca

I love the tag! Those colours are delish!!! I like to work on a clean desk too, but it usually gets out of hand pretty quickly. LOL
Happy WOYWW!

Julia Dunnit said...

Visiting everyone is quite an undertaking! We do understand that you can't always, no stress please! Your desk looks fab in the morning light, messy or not! That tag is fantastic, so of course,well worth the chains caused and no doubt by now, cleared!g

Rahmat said...

Lovely tag, with great use of vibrant colors. I like it really clean when I craft, but there are times when it gets bit out of control ;)

Kelly said...

I love visiting your space, Sharon, just to look at the shelf over your workspace. I'd have put one of those in my studio but the cat would just knock things off in search of a place to sit so didn't seem worth the effort of my contractor. LOL Pretty colors. That cog die set is on my 'want' list. Love the tag! Creative Blessings! Kelly #53

SusanLotus said...

I wish my desk was tidy too...

Happy weekend!
