I thought as I don't have a card to share today I would join in the
I am quite a OCD crafter I like everything organised and in its place!
My workspace 1930's desk that is in a corner of our living room.
The desk was used by a friend when he worked in our local council offices.
When he passed away he left to my family in the 1990's
It had been used for many years by my mum but when she moved to a bungalow
she didn't have anywhere to put it, so it ended up in the loft.
I had always liked it so a few years ago mum suggested it would make a good craft desk.
Its a perfect craft desk it has lots of drawers of all sizes and roll top to hid all my crafting away when I am not there.
The sheet has some digi images printed on it waiting to be coloured.
The sheet on the left is my pro marker chart and
on the right is my list of challenges I like to enter.
On the top of my desk is a tin of mingles - every crafter needs chocolate to keep them going!
The little orange name plaque was made by my daughter for me when she was at school.
Hope you enjoyed you little glimpse into my craft desk
love Nicky x

what a gorgeous desk. Love the plaque your daughter made.

Are promarkers easy to use because I've just won four of them along with some other bits including aqua markers. Never used them, so hoping they're easy to use.

Thank you for such a lovely comment on my blog. Means a lot xx

Loved the glimpse and what a gorgeous desk. Will look forward to seeing what you create with those images. Looks like you are organised with your Promarkers - I need to get to grips with these.

What a fabulous desk and a lovely place to craft you have there! Thanks for commenting on my blog -yes I do think I have given my OH too much room by letting him have a whole shelf and a whole drawer to himself but then I like to think that I am a very generous person! Have a great week.

Oh my Nicky, that way too tidy!

What a fab craft space though and I’m Green with envy at your Promarker chart………I still have loads of gaps on my chart but I’m hoping that Santa will be kind to me and help fill a few of the spaces.

It's bad enough that I am running nearly a week late, then I have been plagued with that pesky 503 error all night. Just wanted to drop in and welcome you to WOYWW. Love that desk. I'm a bit OCD, too, when it comes to neatness. I can't find things when they are out of place. Hope to see you tomorrow.
