What's on your work desk this Wednesday 174

Hi folks if you thought my desk was bad last week wait till you see the picture this week.  Oh my!

Now how am I expected to craft there?!
Good job the computer desk is next to it and I can relocate there isn't it?
The reason for all these bags on my desk?  At the weekend it was our local crop and my usual bag has gone on it's holidays so I had to dig out an old trolley and dust it down.  Look what I found in it......loads of half finished kits.  When did I last use it?  Well there was calenders dated 2010 so it would have been the months upto Christmas in 2009.  I found quite a few cuddlebug embossing folders I thought I'd lost too.  What a nice surprise that was.
At the moment I am sorting out my clothes wardrobe, a job I wish I hadn't started but needs must, I have lost weight so before I can buy some new items I need to make some space. 
I'd much rather be crafting! 
Still I have a card to make later so I will need to make room at some point. 

I also have a crafty friend popping in for coffee soon too so I shall be having a chat and refreshments first to build up my strength to go back in my cupboards!

Pop over to the lovely Julia's blog to see what other like minded crafters are up to today.  It only remains for me to wish you all the very best this Wednesday, thank you for the visit and to say I'll be back later today for a wee nose.

Hi Erika, losing weight must be the best reason for sorting your wardrobe, wish I could do the first to have a reason for the second..... great that you have found things you thought lost. Hope you have a lovely time with your friend. Happy WOYWW, Anne x #13

PS - deliberately did not mention your desk........

What a bonus finding something you thought you had lost long ago. Looks like you have some kits to finish off now too. Happy crafting and sorting.

Its amazing what you find when you have a tidy up/clear-out, isn't it. Mind you, I usually find that I find three things I forgot I had, and lose at least two I know I had last week,lol.
Been doing the wardrobe thing too- I made a determined effort to lose weight this year, so far have lost 1st 8lbs. Great to throw out(charity shop) loads of stuff I am determined I will not need again, and get some nice, funky stuff. In my case, about 99% black, lol.

I always think that finding long lost treasures is the best bit about tidying up! Have fun with the shopping for new things to wear and well done on the weight loss - no mean feat as I know myself! Enjoy your coffee and chat. Happy WOYWW to you from Helen 65

That's like finding a tenner in the pocket of a coat you haven't worn for a while!! Yippee!!
And well done you for losing weight..I must pull my socks up and get some shifted.
Btw, I adore the 50 shades Christmas card from the previous post, absolutely LOVE it. That's the one I'd buy in the shop!!
Hugs, LLJ #1 xx

It must be like finding old friends again to find your stash 3 years later !! Hope there is something in there more topical that 2 year out of date calenders !! Have a fun crafty week - if you find your desk at last ! Ali #47

LOL, losing it only to find it again later is like getting a new toy! Glad you found your folders! Happy creating!

great looking desk. Don't you love finding things that you think you have lost! Congrats on the weight loss and by all means get that closet tidied up so you can do some shopping girl! Love the Shades of Grey post! A real teaser. Still don't think I care for those books and I read all 3 of them. Have a great week. Vickie #22
