Its that addictive time of week when we get to go on a trip around the world
nosey oops looking at everyones desk
If you would like to join in the fun pop over to
On the top of my desk this week is a lot of goodies I brought from the sizzix sale
(I only found out about the sale through someone blogs on WOYWW)
This little lots cost me £24 which was some birthday and Christmas money I had
I haven't opened them yet as I had a card to finish before
I can up pack and find a tidy home for my new stash
On my desk you can see a card that I have finished just behind
my new dies storage that I made earlier this week
If you want to see how I made it click HERE
You can also see a plastic storage box that holds all my embossing folders
There are also the sheets that I print challenges onto that I want to do
See I just cannot help being organised
In fact looking at my desk in this photo is properly the most messy it gets
This is the final large drawer of my desk
It hold an organisor to store all the non Christmas Cards I make
My letterpress
Some sizzix texture plates
The plastic storage box on my desk at the moment normally lives in that space you can see
Theres my making memorys tag maker
My ribbon box
Some adhesives and my glitter glues
Under the glitter glues is a small box that holds all the metal tag rings
Thats it for this Wednesday
Thanks for looking

Oooh look at all those goodies. And I love your roll top desk. I used to have one when I was little. I've since out grown it as it was made especially for a little girl. Now I want a big girl one like yours. LOL

Chrissie said...

You seem to be amazingly organised!
Enjoy all your new things!

Bluefairy4U said...

Wow organised or what. Lucky you getting those sizzix bargains. I did know of the Sale but had a big expenditure prior to Christmas so had to put a stop and say do I really need it - Yes I do but not my bank balance ha ha. Big Hugs JO.xx **19**

You are such a neat and organised crafter! Love the over the hill card, it made me laugh! Yahooo to all those lovely Sizzix bits you managed to get hold of too! Annette #18

okienurse said...

so organized and you still have work to show for it. I am all clutter while working and a mess when not. Never organized with work to show! Thanks for sharing

so neat and tidy - lovely


Scrapcat 1 said...

Too neat and tidy for me, I got loads from the sizzix sale too

Spyder said...

I keep getting email about the Sizzix sale but I have no money!! and no one near me seems to do anything I want, and if they do, it's the full price! Lovely organised desk, Can I borrow your tidy fairy please! Happy WOYWW!!

Pauline said...

Well you are very organised, I love the die folder you have made, I'm struggling with my organisation of stuff. Yes my light tent is fab, but I now need some lights for a brighter picture. It certainly helps to cut annoying shadows out of a picture, I'm no good with tweaking pics on the computer, this hobby is starting to get a bit expensive lol! I can find out where my hubby got it from if you're interested, xx

Jana said...

I love your workdesk. Those roll top desks are just so very charming. Great new treasures you have. You are indeed very organized. Now I'm off to see how you made your die folder. Clever idea.

Mrs A. said...

Well impressed with your sale buys.
Especially the tag die cut on the top of the pile.

Leonie said...

Happy belated WOYWW! thanks for sharing!
your storage ideas are fantastic, enjoyed a squizzy around your studio

You are so very organized and neat! And your Die Book is fantastic! You put a lot of work into it and it looks like it was worth it!
thanks for visiting my desk!

Deborah Frings said...

Your desk is so organised - I do like the Sizzix stash you got too!!

Thanks for your lovely post about my desk - I've been very slow getting around this week - so much to do!!

SueH said...

What a fab desk this week Nicky

Love the storage folder for your nesties….practical and pretty to boot!

And yes, that is a spice rack on my desk. I managed to get two at half price when a new shop was opening locally. They are perfect storage for all my flowers, brads, eyelets and card candy and as an added bonus, they look so pretty sitting in my shelf.


MaggieC (Silvercrafter) said...

What an incredibly well organised desk. I would be scared to use that lovely piece of furniture with all the glues and sprays I use.

Morti said...

Ahhhh - you got sucked into the Sizzix sale too huh? I found out through another person's blog too, and kinda wish I hadn't! LOL

Sherry said...

You must have one of the smartest desks on WOYWW! I'm with you on the tidy and organised route - I just can't work in a mess - well, it's a mess when I'm crafting, but I have to tidy up immediately I've finished - sometimes I tidy during crafting, and need things again, so have to get them out again - lol.

Thanks for already coming to visit my desk.

ps - those Sizzix dies look great for the money!

Wiccababe said...

what a fantastically tidy desk
nice to meet you


A very elegant desk and chair - it looks so cosy, yet well organised, in your beautiful craft space. You got a bargain with all that lovely stash from Sizzix - well done! THanks for visiting - Have a great weekend - Hugs, Sylvia xxxx

SusanLotus said...

You have a lovely little craftingspace! Very well organized. And I like how you placed the Bigshot on such a small area :) I also like that it´s vintage! Have a nice weekend and thanks for stopping by my desk earlier :)

fairy thoughts said...

this is a very organised yet elegant desk well done. love the nestabilities folder i have mine in little zippy bags but am going to make this tomorrow (him in doors allowing!!!!)let you know how it turns out

Rachel Mims said...

I don't know how you do it - staying in such a small space - I have an entire room for art stuff and even with that sometimes it spills out to the living room or the office!

Neet said...

Just wish I had had the time (and patience) to look on the Sizzix sale. Well done for getting those bargains.

Sunshine Girl said...

Lovely pile of new stash you have there - I have to confess I too bought a few items in that sale (rude not to isnt it!). Thanks for sharing. No. 29

Vicki B in OP NY said...

What a wonderful peek into your life. Your organizational systems boggle my mind, in other words, I love 'em! Your work is fantastic - and in such a small space. I need to take a lesson from you!

Ciara said...

I see you succumbed to the Sizzix sale too! I got some right bargains in there. I wish I'd gone for that stars & swirls embossing folder though, your baby card look brilliant. Ah well, maybe next time!!!

Sorry I'm so late in popping over

lisa said...

I'm catching up today - since another WOYWW rolls around tomorrow. I'm glad I did - your post reminds me that I was enabled about that same Sizzix sale - here on WOYWW too. I guess maybe that's what should be on my desk tomorrow - using it all for cards. Looks like you've been quite busy since last Wed.
