What's on Your Workdesk? Wednesday (WOYWW) 189

Wow, another week has passed! Another week with ZERO crafting - ugh!!!! This whole non-sleeping thing is really being a drag. Add to it sinus headaches, bad knee throbbing and late night can't-sleep-so-I-might-as-well-eat-carbs thing is making me a hot mess!! Maybe if I'm super, duper productive I can trick my body into sleep???? But finding the energy and motivation...that's the problem, lol!

My desk this morning:
I did manage to put nearly everything away that you saw last week. I've got to put my new Maggies (from the Christmas collection, which arrived so late they didn't get used!) in my binder, but I decided to make a Magnolia only binder. I got this 8x8 binder for next to nothing from the Stampin Up clearance rack, and a bunch of refill sheets too! So far I've cut enough paper sheets to get started and will be inking up my new Maggies first, then going back and inking up the rest. I will separate them by holiday/season/backgrounds, etc. Hopefully this will keep me from making duplicate purchases and they will get used more!!!! And I can eliminate them from the original stamp binder!! (Really need to go through it and get rid of older stamps I know I'll never use again, but oy!, what a chore that will be!)

Clearance rack special!!

Thank you so much for popping by! If you'd like a sneak peek into other crafter's rooms, check out Julia's blog Stamping Ground! And then join in!!! Happy Crafting!

So sorry to hear you're struggling with health and sleep - horrid. But a clear desk is a start, and getting the practical sorting stuff done while you wait for Mr Mojo to return is a great way to use the time... Do hope you feel better soon. Happy WOYWW!

And here I am at THIS week's post! Good to hear the great tidy up went well but sorry to hear you're not feeling so good. Well done on the bargain binder find... Good idea to sort your Maggies out! (mental note to self, must do that here)....

Jim's out of town, so my 'craft cave' has seen some love, haha. I love the idea of using a binder like that for stamps. . .makes perfect sense. I'm sorry you aren't sleeping well or feeling well, Jeannie. . .I'm thinking about you! (BTW going to CHA together someday sounds divine!)

Deanna said...

Hope you get back in the groove soon! I know what you mean about ordering duplicates. I ordered a duplicate on my second order! What a ditz. I need to catalog my stamps in a binder like you do. Jim has one book shelf made - just needs to be painted and is working on the other one. For some reason he is as excited about this project as I am!

Ria Gall said...

What a great way to catalog your rubber stamps. I do a similar thing with my embossing folders/masks and dies.

Your desk is so neat! I'm not even crafting and my desk is a mess. Hope you get to feeling better.

lisa said...

Sorry to hear you are struggling at the minute and hope you feel more like yourself soon.
You sound as though you have some sorting out and organising planned there.
Happy WOYWW

Sara Jansen said...

Hope you are on the road to feeling better and more sleep....sleep is one of those things that seems so essential, but is so often taken for granted until of course we can't do it. Sending good thoughts your way.
Storing clear stamps is just a pain. I'm curious how your binder works out. I've tried that in the past, only to have all the stamps slide to the bottom of the page protector which seems less that ideal.
Best wishes for a good week!

great looking desk. I am sorry to hear you aren't feeling well! I told DH I was glad I didn't have to do any air travel this past Christmas cause everyone I know that was on a plane has been sick! Hope you get to feeling better soon. Thanks for sharing and I hope you have a great week. Vickie #43

Christina said...

It's all about the organization which I am all about these days!

Jules said...

So sorry that you aren't feeling well and you have lost your mojo, but I am sure it will return. On the plus side, it makes for a very tidy desk! Hope you are back to crafting very soon! Visiting from WOYWW.

Julia Dunnit said...

Argh Jeannie, lack of sleep is the worst for me. And being in the mood to eat carbs is awful..just blows you up and makes you more tired. Ugh. Hope you can pull it round to y our normal routine very soon. Admiring your good intentions over the shaping up of your stamp collection..and even more, admiring the bargain binder..perfect for a range of cute stamps, huh!

MaggieC said...

I do feel for you with those headaches and lack of sleep. Such a frustrating problem and makes things so difficult. Hope you soon get some good sleep at night. I also need to sort out stuff that I am never going to use. Hope you soon feel better. xx Maggie #37

Tuire Flemming said...

Sorting your stamps may be a good way to tempt your mojo back. Hope it's tempting the Sandman too!
Have a nice week!

sandee said...

Not being able to sleep really stinks, and sinus problems are the worst! Can you ice your knee? Hope you start feeling better, maybe all that stamp sorting will make you feel better! ♥ waving hi from the hills of North Carolina ☺

Liz @ A Nut in a Nutshell said...

Yes,accidentally buying dupes would be frustrating!

Ann B said...

Thanks for visiting my blog. I considered a Kindle Fire but plumped for the iPad because my StepD has one and we can FaceTime - she and family live at the other end of the country.
Sorry you haven't felt well and hope the headaches have gone and you are ready for crafting.

I'm sorry you are suffering with sinus and lack of sleep, it really does wear you down after a while. Hopefully you will be feeling better and able to do some crafting, that always puts me in a better mood! Annette #3

I'm sorry you aren't able to sleep. Hope you can sleep better tonight!

fairy thoughts said...

oh dear poor you I am 'of a certain age' and know what the whole lack of sleep thing can do to you. have you tried not trying to sleep, I used to craft at 3 am for an hour or so (simple stuff nothing too stimulating) then go back to bed....works well ... if you dont have to get up very early in the morning. your desk looks ready to go !

We all want more crafty time but certainly not at the expense of sleep. Poor you! Hope things improve soon.
Thanks for popping by my blog... love Jo x

Hope you figure out the sleep thing soon. Lack of sleep is horrible.

Buttons said...

No sleep! Not good. Hope this changes for you as soon as possible as your mojo will be too tired to work. At least you are thoroughly organised there. Hugs, Jenny #29

Neet said...

Dont talk about jet lag - I have it to come and being away for a month only seems to make it worse.
Anyway, hope you soon be back to normal.
Love your bargain folder.

Mandy said...

Nicky said...

Hope you are feeling rested soon = great binder you have there – I have not shared my desk this week as am busy looking after my friends cattery but am enjoying looking at everyone else craftiness – Have a great week

PJ said...

Hey Gal! Your desk looks like my bed! We are staying in a 28 foot travel trailer from December til March. I have no place to spread out except the middle of my queen size bed, so I have my laptop, 2 Bibles, a couple of Devotional books and my Bible Encyclopedia LOL! Needless to say, it a major deal to get ready for bed every night.

God Bless,
PJ

Vickie said...

Have you seen a doc about this sleeplessness? Sometimes I have issues but yours sound a little more severe. Hope you find a resolution on it.

Man, you are organized girly!! My stuff was organized once...two years ago. Now, everything is everywhere;)

Pam said...

Sorry to hear ur under the weather :-( your desk is nice n tidy wish mine was x

Amy E said...

Congrats on getting your desk cleared! I'm still working on mine. Hopefully, it will be clean and shiny by Wednesday's new photo!

Sorry to heat about your sleeping...it's so horrible when it happens...throws off everything! Hoping it's better soon.

Thanks for stopping by this week!
