WOYWW #96 Tidy Tidy

Good morning peeps; yes, it's that time again to head over to Julia at Stamping Ground and show the world your creative space.....
I don't know about you but every now and again I just HAVE to have a bit of a re-organise. This was that kind of week!
So there's not much happening on my desk but here it is
So not much on the desk but on the left I added a metal basket to the door to organise my glues, embossing powders etc that I use all the time. Just peeking out at the back of my pullout are 8 really useful boxes (which definately live up to their name!)
But the biggest change is to my bits and bobs tray which used to be on the left. Well, I was looking at the cupboard the other day and thought that the second pullout shelf was a waste of space but because it was angled I cuold not put stuff on it and still close it. So I hauled it out, measured my bits tray and took a saw too it and cut some spaces to fit my trays (I had two, one was not used)
So now I have a lovely second pullout and loads of my stuff is easily accessable, YAY!

Sorry, not trying to turn you all green but I'm pleased with it as I need to SEE my stuff when I am looking for something to add to a project!
Then I have started hanging some stuff on the right hand door so it cheers me up.

So there you have it, not much work in progress but a very organised space waiting to be used!
Ps, tomorrow my first Guest design project goes onto the Craft Barn Blog if you want to head over there and take a look and if you do please leave a comment if you like it!
And; on Friday afternoon; I will have an ANNOUNCEMENT to make so pop on by then!
Until then, be blessed wherever you are and whatever you are doing.

Neil, you just prove that you don't need lots of space in order to be creative. I do of course! Have you seen my new space!?! but you seem to get by with your natty little cupboard and you turn out some amazing stuff. Cheers Kasey

Great re-org Neil, when you only have a small space you have to make it work for you and your desk is an engineering feat all in itself!

well organised desk - and love the idea of sticking the tags on the back of the door... sadly my door is full with ribbons, but I still have a little bit of wall somewhere... Thanks for Sharing and hope you have a happy WOYWW. Caroline (No 31 x)

I just love all that organisation but love the goodies inside even more. Your sek is tidy but glad to see it's not perfect and there is still some mess there. We can't have a perfectly tidy desk can we?
Happy WOYWW

Julia Dunnit said...

Genius! Perfect way to control and store the trays..and I love the idea of the rack for the esentials. Most I love the artwork on display...some great pieces. But really most - I'm pleased for you because your desk is BIGGER now....think of the extra room to mess up!!
