What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday #191

It's that time again!!! Time to have a world-wide nosy through other people's craft desks!! LOVE IT!! This has been a tough month for me craft-wise because it's been a tough month for me SLEEP-WISE, lol! But things seem to be getting back to "normal" after our transatlantic trip to Florida. Be sure to link up with Julia, on Stamping Ground, to see some incredible art and wonderful, creative desks!!! You won't be disappointed!

Yesterday I spent nearly the entire day in my Stamping Studio! Lots to clean, organize, move around, rediscover, lol! And the final product of my efforts was this...
TA DA!!!!!

I moved everything off the third shelf on the left, to the new cubby, so then I shifted all my clear mount cases over, creating more room in my Work Box. The cases you see here are about half of my collection!

Notice that the little table has NOTHING on it, or under it!! A miracle!!!!

If you listen closely, you can hear the angels singing at this newly organized space!

I built the new IKEA cubby, MYSELF!, on Sunday. So now I have a Big Shot/Magnolia station!

Oh right! The desk!!! So what's on my desk this morning? New Magnolia stamps!!! I got the last of them last night in the mail. Oh happy day!!! Some of these are from the newest collection, and some are much older. I finally found some that I've been looking for, for a while now. I also bought some scor-tape since so many crafters use it and I wanted to try it out. Do you use it???

AND....Remember when I promised (again!) to make something crafty??
Well I did!!! I made this adorable Valentine gift for my oldest daughter. (She hardly ever reads my blog, so I think I'm safe!) I used Dangling Tilda for this, and colored her with my beloved Copics. I even fussy cut it, which I hardly ever do!!!
Back side


The winner of last week's giveaway is....


Because that was so much fun, I'm doing it again this week!!
Up for grabs is this...
...packet of black rhinestones and a mini Maggie stamp!

Just leave your comment here on this post, and you will be entered to WIN!! You do not have to be a follower of my blog, but I do so love to have new bloggy friends. (*waves* to all the new ones from last week!!!) Good luck and thank you for visiting!!


Gail said...

Good for you!
My room should EVER look organized like yours!
I use score tape every chance I get!!!
Love it, couldn't find my thicker one the other night, cause it's not where it should be!?
Really like the Valentine treat you made, and glad to hear you're getting some sleep!~

Liz @ A Nut in a Nutshell said...

I just don't know how you can keep track of everything you have even though it's organized. I feel like I'd buy things twice because I forgot I had them!

Anjeny said...

Yay for organized craft room and I am totally drooling over your IKEA shelf and magnolia stamps.

I use the score tapes, I order them all the time. They are totally awesome product to use. I like our SU sticky strip but the score tape is so much easier to use, you don't need to scissors to cut, you just tear them off yet they stand strong on your project.

I have been enjoying your posts tremendously, all the many awesome pictures and crafts.

Meihsia Liu said...

Wow... your room is awesome! Love all the drawers! ^_^

Spyder said...

oMGoodness what a lovely crafty room, all you need it a till and it'll be a shop! I love all those cupboards and drawers!
Happy WoYww #8


Bubbles said...

I cannot live without scor-tape. Other than my whole family get the giggles when they see "Sook wang" printed on it, it's a brilliant product (if somewhat expensive).
Wowsers! to the tidy... and I'm still gobsmacked at the "half my collection" comment.
The jar pressie is THE most adorable little gift ever - so cute!
Have a great WOYWW!

Ali Wade said...

Happy WOYWW and please wait whilst I pick myself up from the floor! Your studio is wonderful, but it is also one of the reasons why I am having a big clear out and restricting myself to mainly digital crafting. I didn't have the time or budget to keep buying stash like I was last year, so I know myself and know that I just need to stop it NOW. I can admire your storage and collection of stamps though! Gorgeous Valentines gift. Thank you for the chance of winning (black gems are a must have for me). Ali x #34

Nikki said...

I love your room so neat and tidy and everything has a place. I can't wait till I get my own craftin space again and have an actual desk to layout what I'm creating thanks for the chance hugs Nikki C
*no desk this week had to clean up the floor

Thanks for visiting my blog already. I'm just catching up after a little more shopping this morning - more fabrics for my quilt.

Love love love your stamp room! Thanks so much for sharing your space. And a big thanks for stopping by Shack Scraps and saying hello! Its so nice to meet fellow stampers. Happy crafting!

mamapez5 said...

Better late than never, I am finally visiting some of my Wednesday blog-hopping friends. I just love your organised studio. I try to keep mine like that but I am running out of space! I have a lovely new set of storage shelves but already the mid-afternoon sun is finding them so I think I may have to put curtains across them to protect my pens and inkpads from drying out.
I am not a follower yet but very soon I am going to have a big sort out of my internet activities and start following just the people I really want to visit regularly! I will add you then. I have just visited your 'today' post and seen all the gorgeous puss-cat pictures. I have a resident 'fluffy' in my craft room who always looks grumpy, but she is lovely really. Enjoy your weekend.

Queen Lightwell said...

Oooh, look how clean it is! Look at all that floor! And the table cleaned off, too! You were really on a roll girl! :) Great job on the Ikea shelf. And the others all look very well organized! Feels good, huh? :)
Thanks for visiting my blog already and letting me know my linky was messed up. I got it fixed and to answer your question about Scor-tape...I don't use it myself. Though I wanted some of the big sheets of it, once upon a time. I couldn't get them for a decent price though and settled on something else.
Now that's a nice haul of Magnolia stamps! I don't have a single one, myself. They are darling though, so I hope I win! :)
But even if I don't win I still want you to know I think its very sweet and generous of you to do *another*'re such a sweetie! :) Deeyll #164

Linda said...

Your workspace looks so neat and organised. Thanks for visiting my blog - I thought about unmounting my wooden stamps but I have to say I still prefer wooden stamps even though they do take up more room.
