What's On Your Workdesk 189?......My first of 2013!

Hello everyone & welcome to my WOYWW of 2013!
As you can see my desk is quite tidy.
I have a pile of stuff to the left to sort, my cutting mat every ready to work on & my latest book I am reading. I have re-arranged my big storage shelf to the left a bit to start using some of the flowers & vintage ribbons I have, thus trying to encourage me to use them a bit more in my cards.

The other end of the desk has cards I need to finish & sort in to cello bags & boxes. Mr Binxz is sunning himself in the window, lovely bright but very chilly day to day. I put some bunting up above the window I made for a vintage tea party I had last September.

These are a few cards I have made in the past few days, I like the Leanne Ellis stamps, I wouldn't say I was a character type crafter as I am not that good with the pro markers, so I tend to do basic stuff with them. 

So that's me this week! I have had umpteen problems with my broadband, Sky, Blogger & bla bla bla for ages now so that's one of the reasons I haven't joined in or blogged for ages, plus I got Married in the US last November and was very busy up until then. Hope to catch up with you & your desks sometime this week! Take care everyone & mind how you go in the snowy & cold weather we are all having!

Hi Lavinia,

I've been thinking about you - wondering how you enjoyed your trip. Congratulations on the nuptials!

I love your studio set up! Did you custom make those shelves? One day I hope to have a real craft space!!

Welcome back.

OMG your storage unit to the left took my eyes straight there so I missed the fact your desk was tidy.

As usual Lavinia your desk and cards are ever an inspiration! I always want to be sat at your desk, it looks really cosy & inviting. You've done a good job with the promarkers too.......practice, practice, practice!! It's good to be getting back into the swing of things after the christmas holidays, so here's to plenty more crafting in 2013!
Love Debs xx

ITS HARD TO COMMENT ON YOUR DESK NOW, I'M SMILEY AND EXCITED!! I am the same with the Pro Markers..bought a load, can't bebothered to learn them properly because I dont do characters...rubbish purchase decision!

Absolutely love your tidy desk. I wish i could be that neat, but I know it's not going to happen.

Love your cards. The Steampunk one is FABULOUS!!

Sorry I am 2 days late getting to your blog. I have been battling a nasty flu bug.

Love your craft room - I have just a desk in the corner of the living and would love your space - beautiful cards too - I am not sharing a desk as away from home looking after my friends cattery but enjoying having a good look around everyone else's desk

Add my wedding congratulations to the mix too, and yes, we need photos!! Lovely bright craft room, must be all the snow reflecting? Great cards, love the steampunk one too. How cold is it now? It was -19C here last night, lol!! Hope you're coping with the snow and don't have to go anywhere. It's great to have you back again.

Oh my goodness, your room is gorgeous! And looks so organized! I don't mind clutter while I work but I like things to have a place and go back to live in that place once my project ends!
The cards are gorgeous...especially the steampunk looking one.
