WOYDW !!! THE WHOLE TRUTH AND NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH !!!!

Its that time of week again for Whats on your desk Wednesday !!!!
OMG !!! Garry took my photos tonight and he has gone just a little to far , I said to him this morning I was gonna tidy up this morning and again this afternoon I was gonna tidy and then it just got to late so I said to Garry I just won't join in this week and went off to make a cuppa ....when I got back the photos were taken and I had my orders to post them and show you the real me !!! I know its no excuse but I have been so busy creating my challenges etc I didn't look behind me to see the mess I was creating over my shoulder !!!
I have the worst habit of getting "stuff" out and not putting it away, I did get some good advice from my friend Tracy about tidying away after each creation which I did for a while but I have lost the plot again and really need to put tomorrow aside (or the whole of next week !!!lol) and have a good "put away session" before I drown in stash ......I don't think I even thought it was that bad until I sat down and viewed the photos on screen !!! lol
But after saying all that in my own defence I don't think you can have a tidy desk and a creative mind they just don't go together do they ......come on girls someone please help me out and agree with me !!! lol Please ??!!
Another thing that makes a mess is when the postie delivers new stash I have to keep it out to look at it and sometimes I have even been caught stroking new 12x12 papers !!! lol sick I know but I do love new "stuff" and I need it to be close by so I can look at it !! he he
Anyone else as daft as me !!?? lol come on show us Whats on your desk Wednesday pop over to Julia's blog Stamping ground and join in the fun ....you don't have to reveal as much as I have this week unless you have a hubby who wants to shame you into putting "stuff" away !!! lol
Have fun Happy crafting

ha ha! You make me laugh!! I'm terrible when I get new things I have to have them out for at least a week till they settle in & find a home & so I can see them & drool somemore, oh & show my mum!

I'm quite tidy still as I do try to tidy as I go. I'm very much have to have a tidy space to begin with to then get everything out to craft & make a mess....bit mad really!!

wooo-ahh Nellie!!!!

How do you move???? I'm feeling crafters envy and not even noticing there might be a mess, far too busy nosing at all your stash, your stash, your stash, your stash........

:) This post did make me giggle to myself. I wont be joining in the showing your desk malarky because creativeness cant be tidy! I heard a quote on the TV this morning 'a tidy house is the sign of a boring person' and I am not boring :P Thats my excuse and I am sticking to it lol (May I suggest you do to?! lol) xxx

vikkithescrapjunkie said...

Ive just passed out bear with me while i pick myself back up lol........My god woman ive just sat here with my chin on the table! Its not the untidiness its the sheer volume of stash!!!!!!!!!!!! OMG im going to have to email you xxxx

SallyB said...

Hey Susie...A woman after my own heart! Perhaps I will post up a piccie of my room for you. I don't have as many shelves but tend to gather things in the corner of the room and on all the chairs...heaven knows what I am gonna do at Christmas...we may be eating out!

Claire Ellen Designs said...

Well you certainly believe in doing things in style lol ! what a terrible state !!!!!!!!! how could you possibly have all that lovely room, all those lovely things and then leave them looking so sad lol ? I have been told i would be divorced if my room ever looks like that ! oh the joys of having a tidy husband, I think khe has moaned at me so much that his tidiness has rubbed off, how boring - I would much rather be like you, keep it up ! hugs, Claire xx

Mandi said...

If you are in there....somewhere Suze LOL

yvonne said...

Urm , now I don't have a lot of room .. but , I COULD FIND some, lol
Oh my girl how much .. oh and do you know where every thing is . I bet you do , lol

Mandy said...

OMG Susie have you thought that maybe you've had a burgular in and ransacked your craft area looking for the other kind of stash lol. What a fabulous stash I've had to have another look and I'm green with envy. I think we've all been guilty of the odd bit of paper stroking on the quiet lol
hugs Mandy xx

Anneke said...

wow, what a stuff!
I am jealous of so many things!!
I guess I still hard to save for so many things ;)
Hugs Anneke

Angie said...

Your bins and shelves are busting in yummyness and your desk is a joy, as I see you are about to reach the last corner of your mat. I hate putting things away too and have a 'refile' box ...but it just gets fuller and fuller (out of shot on my table) and eventually my DD takes pity on me and sorts it all out !!!!I dont know whether I take a clever shot, as many have said I'm not that untidy ....believe me ...in real life I so am !!

Loz said...

OMG!! It's like a craft store in there!! Where's your pilllow...I'd never want to be away from so many pretties!!

Kaz said...

Susie, I'm coming to live with you!!! You have the best collection of stash that I have ever seen. I did worry for a while at your ribbon all neat on the spool, then i saw the basket with the loose stuff!!

I can identify with what you're saying, it needs to be peeping out so you can see it. xx

SMK said...

hehehe, i love getting new stash :P no worries, many a crafting mind ONLY functions with clutter... I'm a touch OCD so I'm the opposite :P but still! many a fabulous crafter that I follow has shown their messy desk, you included ;)

LadyBug said...

Hi Susie, ummmm what can I say :) so much stash!!!!I'm afraid my Mojo won't work if my desk ins't tidy she goes off and gets the hover out out ;) unless I clear away after every LO. But each crafter has their own methods and if you create your best with your stash around you, then don't let nobody tell you it's wrong :) Although my OCD would love to come and help you sort through it all :)

Julia Dunnit said...

Susie I meant to say..if you like the calendar I use and post monthly on my blog, you might like the 'day' event that we're doing to make up the 12 LOs and we provide a magnetic frame and blah..it's under the 2 Scrap Ladies link in my side bar. And I wanted to reinforce what Angie says: your desk is a joy!

Ravenwolf said...

Thank you so much for posting these!! My husband will be shown them and then he will have to believe that I don't actually have all that much stuff taking over our house :D!!

Bev said...

That's TIDY!! You want to see the state of this room (I am blushing so much I could feed the National Grid!!) xx

Pam said...

Oh Susie!! Can't say much I only have a small room (but it is all mine!!) my DH keeps leaving a tin of polish and a duster on my chair each week, but there is no need to dust as all the surfaces are covered in stash (thats my excuse anyway!) Pam

Denise ~ Paper Ponderings said...

A tidy crafting space is a sign of a lazy stamper!! tee hee...that's my motto and I'm sticking to it! I'm tickled pink to see your crafting area...although you have more goodies, the look is similar Ü Thanks for sharing!

LoloDesigns said...

Oh my I just had to comment on this one! That is a HUGE amount of stuff, I can just picture you beavering away in their like a mad professor just chucking stuff behind you, tee hee.

Put a smile on my face this one :o) xx

Nikki said...

OMG Your stash looks like so much fun and just reading what everyone wrote too It's like a little stash command post you in the center on a spinning chair with everything in reach. Too cool it's a great idea for those walk in closets .. who needs clothes when you have crafts lol
I think everyone want's to play at your house lol
Hugs Nikki

Donna said...

Oh my Susie! LOL!!!!
I would be so spoilt for choice in here! What wonderful stash you have, I have been drooling looking at the close up's! But...I still think you can NEVER have enough!!
xx

Sam said...

ROFL..... Just how a craft space should look! I agree you can't be creative and tidy. I have to have new stash out and nearby, and I also stroke new papers, while plucking up the courage to cut into them, suppose we just gotta worry when we start licking windows ;-)

Nicola said...

Hold on I am just popping over to tidy up but you will have to allow me plenty time to play amongst all this wonderful crafty stash first rofl - may take me quite some time.
Hugs,
Nicola -x-
