Whats On Your Work Wednesday 160......New Desk!!!

Well, its done! Here's my new crafty space, bigger desk better to work on & defiantly brighter! It was 4 days of very hard work. I really didn't think there was as much "stuff" squirreld away in this small corner? However, It filled my bedroom & the hallway upstairs as well as the place behind the sofa in the front room?...Mad! I did have a bit of a chuck out too & filled a bin bag with things that were just not worth hanging on to, old bags, folded up card-bored boxes, you always think they will come in for something! But alas they dont..

I used 3 Expedia Cubes from Ikea, one on each end to support the work-surface & one in the middle. So there is 12 cubbys now for storage, loads more room! It was well worth sorting it out & I am really chuffed with the end result. Mr Lavinia has done a sterling job, as well as making 2 trips to Ikea to exchange something that I wanted to incorporate, but just didn't fit!

I want to thank everyone last last week for the visit. And hope I got back to all of you & to the ones I didn't, I will this week!!! :) No card to show this week as tonight is my first making evening making anything!
Hope you have all had a crafty week & making the best of the rubbish weather! Its my Birthday on Thursday so I hope its NOT raining, but hey even if it is I have my lovely new desk to craft the day away on! :)
Hope you all have a crafty week!

WOYWW 159.....Last time from my old desk!

Hello Everyone! Thanks for popping by to have a snoop at what could be the last ever pic of my Big Old Desk for What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday!
I have decided its time to get rid of it to the Garage & have a worktop along the length of the wall. I am as we speak filling out my Ikea Shopping list! Hopefully the work will be done in the next two weeks!....(mmmm maybe blind optimism) but cant be without my crafty space for long :( makes me feel anxious the thought of no desk!

I took the pictures while I was making the card in the next pic.
I Have a feel for the busy Vintage style at the moment. Seems my past few cards have been that kind of look. Think maybe some of it is down to the past two lots of Anna Griffin stamps sets I have bought. I love what she creates & the elegance of her designs. Its fired my Inspiration & got me enthused :) I have used on of Astrid's Freebie Friday Tags again as they are so lovely & easy to incorporate for a great Vintage look! Theres a link on my sidebar to her Blog, she does some really wonderful work!

I have now sent out all my ATC's from the 3rd WOYWW Anniversary swap, thank you to all my swappers! I will show them all when I have received them, as I still have two from the USA on there way. Hope you all have a great week & off to desk snoop!
