WOYWW 194



What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday is back again!!  Thanks to Miss Julia Dunnit, it has become the Wednesday phenomenon of blog-land!!  Miss Sandee (from the hills of North Caolina) asked for a full picture of Betsy, since I let it out that I work in an altered closet.  First photo is the best I could maneuver without getting DH's work desk involved. LOL  The dark black cabinets at each end (under the counter) are wine cabinets, and yea they are full.  The white roll about is printed papers sorted into colors.  On top of the roll about are 2 - drawer space keepers with small solid color papers in them.  I do use that white foot stool while I work. 
 This photo shows what it looks like with my trolley pulled in front of one of the wine coolers.  In front of the cooler to the far right, and almost out of sight is a microwave cart.  The wooden top is where I keep my paper cutter, now under 2 white space keepers.  The two wire shelves is where all my unmounted stamps are kept.  What's under the lacy curtain will have to wait for a different time, cause it is mostly storage.  The counter top and the white display board were originally put in so I could scrap book here.  Now the stamps have taken over and the scrapbook stuff is along another wall. And now you know why I am so envious of all you that have a window to look out of.
So here is WHAT'S ON MY WORKDESK!  They are some metal letters I bought a couple years ago at Michale's for 25 cents a piece.  The only words I could put together were stamp and art, and I was lucky to find any vowels at all.  So today I started to paint them (about time too).  As they lay there I see stamp rat, which might be what I change it to LOL.  I figure I'll hang them along the white molding over my head.  So  head over to: http://stamping-ground.blogspot.com/2013/02/whats-on-your-workdesk-wednesday-194.html and get to snooping.

For those that dropped by last week and are curious
about the canvas I started as a birthday present it is pictured below.  I'll run a full post on it and my mix media canvas a little later.  Now I'm off to do a little snooping before going to bed.

  2. Lovely work space you got there with everything to hand. I am a pack rat, so that new saying of yours would be appropriate above my desk! LOL

  13. Great crafting space you have, so organised too.
    Love the big letters, guess when they go down to 25 cents you don't get much choice but stamp and art are two great words. Not sure about rat!

  15. Wow! You've made the most of that closet space and I love the feminine frills around the top. A window would only be a distraction :) I'm assuming that your hubby has a desk close by - does he craft too? Thanks for sharing your unusual craft space. Happy WOYWW. Elizabeth x #58

  16. Hello there. It's great to see a full picture of your craft cubby, it looks really inviting all lit up there. We've been trying to make other words out of your letters on your desk but can't see past stamp rat now you've mentioned it!

    Thanks for visiting the bears this week.

  20. OK, so I keep chocolate on my desk, but you keep WINE at yours! LOL, who needs a window when you can have a sip of wine while crafting away! I love how you have such a cute and cozy corner to work in, you have made it lovely! Thanks so much for visiting my blog today, waving hi from the hills of North Carolina ♥

  29. I used to scrap/paper craft in a closet too.
    Yours looks great...well organized and efficient use of the space. I had rolling bins I pulled out too!

    Your daughters canvas of dates turned out so nice!

  30. Hi Krisha,

    You are so clever to use your closet - and look how much stuff you have in there!!! WOW.

    Your canvas came out looking great. How did you get your numbers lined up so nicely?

    Thanks for visiting me already!!!

    Happy WOYWW

  31. That's a great space, it's amazing what you can fit into a space and have it so organised. I like the 'stamp rat' (he he).
    Have a great day.

  32. Considering you are in a closet, then you have made the best for what you have to work with. If it was me, I would sit and drink all that wine whilst working on layouts or cards, or what the hell anything that you could considering the wine would be all gone. LOL

    I really like your layout/canvas from last week awesome job.


    Happy WOYWW

  33. You may not have a window but you certainly use the space to its max, and anyway, you can put your fab canvases on the wall if you want something pretty to look at. Have just been admiring your mixed-media canvas and the numbers one, very clever idea to use the dates like that.
    Thanks for visiting.

  35. Oh dear, cold knocked me for 6 again yesterday, then computer had a problem so DH had it all evening. Yes these bugs are really horrid this year, I had only just taken a corse of antibiotics to get shot of the cough which had started in October when this struck! Love your altered cupboard, and the letters will look super too. Thanks for stopping by and Happy belated WOYWW BJ#4

  39. Hi Krisha thanks for popping by. I am catching up with my visits tonight as I got a bit busy yesterday. Don't you just love to be surrounded by all your goodies. I don't have much of a window either but I am not sure I would look out of it if I could - unless it overlooked the ocean of course not that would be cool! Belated Happy WOYWW from Helen 82

  40. You have an amazing workspace girl! Love you birthday canvas too! Happy WOYWW!

  41. You might not have a window, Krisha, but you have a very cozy place to craft and you are making excellent use of every.single.inch of space!!

    Thanks for sharing and thanks for coming by the Playhouse. It's nice to know another stamper who organizing stamps like I do. It's sacriligious to a lot of peeps. Sssshh.

    And don't even get me started on the letters on your desk. As you prolly figured out, I love words and I especially love anagrams.

    start map
    tramp sat
    past mart
    smart tap
    part mast
    matt raps
    strap mat

    okay, okay, I gotta go ... I still like stamp rat the best though for a stamp collector like you (and me!)! Have a wonderful week!! Darnell #48
