Whats On Your workdesk Wednesday?
Its that time of the week again and last week I managed to visit everyone
Some blogs I struggle to leave messages as you have word verification on and being dyslexic
I really struggle with it - if you could turn it off I am sure it would help lots of people
If you worried about whats posted on you blog just tick that it needs approval before being seen by everyone that way you still have control
Any how onto my desk - no pictures of Ernie my poorly Morris Minor as because of the snow we did not have post for about 5 days so I am still waiting for the spares to arrive so I can put him back together
For those that wanted to see my garage workdesk including oily rags
as saying goes what this space!
On my craft desk this week are some new goodies that I brought with some Blog Candy Voucher
I won on the Simon Says Challenge site
I got a new Sew Easy stitching head, two set of Tim Holts embossing folders
(my first Tim Holts items) and some stickles again a first for me
I have used lots of other glitter glues but I must say I really like this one and I can see me getting more
There are also some finished cards and a printed image waiting to be coloured

The drawer this week is the top left one that holds my inks and wooden stamps

Most of my wooden stamps are house mouse ones (they are so cute)

Mainly I use clear stamps that I house in a different storage box. But in this drawer are a couple of sets that need sorting and putting in that box, I also have my clear mount rocker blocks and stamps cleaners. Oh and some cotton buds I use for smudging and wiping little bits!

If you wonder what on earth this is all about pop over to the Queen of the desk hops at the Stamping Ground Blog and have a nose

Thanks to anyone who has read my waffle this far and a Happy Wednesday to Everyone

My eyes went straight to those embossing folders! I can hardly make a card without using one - I absolutely love them. And Tim Holtz has some fabulous ones!

I TOTALLY agree about word verification... it takes so much time up and folks can ensure that unwanted comments are avoided by having blog owner approval switched on.
I think the tidy fairy must live at your house! Has she got a sister who could come over here?

I totally agree about word verification, it's so time consuming. Love your new stash.

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

I totally agree about word verification. Besides, any post can be deleted by the blog owner, so what's the big deal? Sorry your "baby" still isn't fixed. But your "other" desk looks very neat and tidy, ready for anything. Happy WOYWW (#4).

Pam said...

Oh, I hope we don't have word verification on! I've never written myself a comment so I need to check that! Congrats on winning the challenge and I hope that Ernie is warm enough outside! Thank goodness he has a roof over his head in this weather!

Serendipity Stamping said...

Such a nifty looking desk this week and surround by lots of goodies. Neatest drawer I have seen I believe. Word verification really is a pain! (having said that I hope mine is still in the off mode where I put it several months ago or I will have egg on my face).

LuLu said...

It's so-o - tidy. You're starting to scare me - ha ha, ha!

Thanks for sharing your spare - maybe it will inspire me to tidy mine up a bit...


peggy aplSEEDS said...

congratulations for visiting everyone and for your win! i hope you get your wish about word verification. it'll make it easier for all of us!

Julia Dunnit said...

Oh look at those inkpads all lined up neatly like soldiers - how marvellous to see that when you open your drawer! Have fun with the new stash - I have a couple TH folders too - unused.

Elizabeth said...

Hi, as a fellow dyslexic I sooo agree with you about word verification - I don't know how many times my comment has been rejected because I've put the wrong thing in :( That aside, sorry to hear that your car is still laid up due to the post. Hopefully, now that the thaw has set in you will be able to repair him soon. Elizabeth #95

Hands to Work, Hearts to God said...

I just checked my blog to see if I have word verification on, and I don't :^) Great cards on display and how nice that you've won some goodies! Patsy from

voodoo vixen said...

Another one agreeing about word verification... especially when it then tells me that it has to be approved by the blog owner!! Eh? LOL
Your desk is so neat and tidy and what a cute phone you have!!

butlersabroad said...

I'm with you on the word verification thing! Lovely neat desk, great new goodies too. I love Stickles and have about 14 of them, I don't have any TH fades but I have a few Distress Inks and a couple of stamp sets. LOVE House Mouse stamps!!


Minxy said...

WOW your first Tim items.. it's a slippery slope.. you'll soon be hooked and want the dies and inks and pads and well the list is endless lol
Hugs Minxy desk#42

Rachel said...

Tim's stuff should definitely come with a health warning. But it's not an addiction you'll ever want to fight. Have masses of fun.

cheers, rachel #40
