WOYWW #211 - Clean desk or not?

Hello to all the blog hoppers out there.  This is an usual site of my desk. ie its been cleaned up abit.  Well it had got to the stage I couldn't find anything, so yesterday, I decided to have a bit of a clean up, dare not show you behind my chair.  So this was my desk as of 8.00pm last night !

This is my desk as of 10.00pm last night.  Had a play with dylusions, distress inks, very old colourbox ink pads, Frantage Ivory embossing powder and my embossing dabber from Ranger.  The tags are the start of a challenge will show result when complete.  For details of bloghop wing yourself over to the StampingGround for the details.  Thanks to all who comment and have a good day!


  1. Lol, those two shots are at opposite ends of the spectrum aren't they? Like the look of what you're working on!!

    1. Proof if it were required, that it doesn't take long to get back in the craft grrove once everyhting is tidied...you kinda just look at the empty desk and can't help yourself, huh!! Love the stamps you've chosen, and al the nice colours.

  15. It's good to see a before and after. We always love a clear up as we can then mess it up again.

  21. I've always said a messy desk if fine until you can't find what you're looking for, then it needs a clean. Loving the colours of the inks you've used. Thanks for popping by, have a great week - Lucy #34 x

  22. It's good to see how you started out as well as the work in progress. I only have a few dylusions dye sprays but i love playing with them. They are such gorgeous colours. Thanks for your visit earlier. Kate x #45

  23. What a difference a couple of hours can make. And the proof is there, too! Have a super WOYWW from #17.

  24. Nice to see the clean didn't last long and you are back to nice and crafty :) Love those flower stamps and they look really good in the white.
    Have a great week.
