WOYWW 248 the clean and sort issue

Oh dear! Here it is time for WOYWW again and just look at this messy Betsy!  This is a picture taken early this morning (Tuesday) just in time for T(ea) for Tuesday with Elizabeth., after an evening on the living room floor sorting and purging  my paper scraps.

So I am going to call this my start photo, and linking them all up to Julia the sponsor of WOYWW
 Tonight this is how Betsy looks, at least not so laden with stacks of paper. To the far right LEFT (thanks Elizabeth LOL) I brought in an orange metal stand.  This now houses binders of cling stamps (an other achievement for this week) The top houses bins of rubber stamps.  I also got my PC moved over against the wall, much better and more assessable since DH wants to hog the main PC.....LOL Moved the rack of ink pads to the side wall, and the brown shelf is now more centered now.
In just this picture I spy, with my bright eyes something purple and spiky.  Do YOU see it?
Here is a closer look at what is actually on the work space.  To the left is a stack of junk  'erm, I mean stuff that still needs gone through.  The gray page sticking out is my J52 page for this week, not happy with it, but oh well,  a roll of packing tape there in the back, green cutting mat takes center with my paper weight from Sea World.  Scraps of paper, a bin of writing instruments, bottle of glue, cleaning rag on top of pages containing pictures of my clear stamps (to be put in a binder)  Under the papers is a brush peaking out.  The rest is the regular tools for the job.  I did take one hanging rack and put my inks and sprays in it, more visual now.  Everything is still "under construction" so come back next week and see if I have gotten any further....LOL

Two weeks ago I gave you some thing round and copper/brown to find on Betsy.
Everybody that said the penny on the back wall can now stand and take a bow and wait for it........
here it comes

clap! clap! clap!

If you stop for a visit please leave me a comment and I will do my darndest to return the visit.  BUT
ATTENTION PLEASE:  I WILL NOT BE LEAVING COMMENTS IF I HAVE TO DO ANYTHING OTHER THAN HIT THE COMMENT BUTTON AND PUBLISH.  Sorry, but as you know it takes time to make all the visits and this is just adding to the frustration.
Off to make a few make a few desks before bedtime.
Inky Hugs


  1. Wow, you did a massive cleanup in just a few hours. However, isn't the orange crate on your OTHER RIGHT??

    Well, I finally found the purple spiky thing by your OTHER RIGHT desk (OTT?) lamp.

    Happy WOYWW from #1. Now I'm off to press the Publish button (grin).

  2. What a busy, busy Betsy - both loaded and clear! Great photos :)
    Happy WOYWW!
    no. 33

  3. Looks like Betsy is getting a mini makeover - I'm in a bit of a creative slump at the moment, might have to do some sorting out in my craft room and see if it gets the old mojo back on track. I think your journal page looks great, but I know what it's like if you're not happy with something, come back to it later you might see a way forward or have fallen back in like with it, if not love!

  4. Hi Krisha, nice to have a tidy and rearrange, seems like a few people are doing that this week..,maybe its the cold weather. I think I see the purple spiky thing - a brush under the spray inks. Anyway have fun Cheers RobynO#30

  5. Are you really cleaning out or just moving everything. it is so hard to by pass the "may need that someday" attitude of waste not want not!
    thanks for visiting.

  6. Hi Krisha- stamp organising- I think thats all I ever do sometimes!I have all mine in binders- its just getting the most user friendly way thats time consuming. By brand? By style? Trying a bit of a mix of both at the moment, but I agree, printed pages of images definitely helps, whatever system you use. Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #41 xx

  7. We're coming back next week to check your progress.... no pressure or anything!!! Sometimes just the littlest changes make the biggest differences like moving the inks over or switching some things around. Have fun tidying, think of how nice it will be once you're done. And "done" can come at any stage, remember that!

  8. You must be in the mood for spring cleaning. :)
    Hope you had a nice Tuesday. Best wishes for today!

  9. Hello Krisha. You have certainly been busy this week. It's all looking good.
    I think you probably won't comment on my site - but that's Ok - I can't alter the way webeden works things I'm afraid :-( Sorry.
    Have a great week.

  10. Is it the pencil topper? My kids had them. Or a "squishy" thing (as they called it?). At least I found it this time!!
    Splash Ink is an acrylic mixing system that only uses 4 colors, Black, Maroon, Blue and yellow. You get a recipe sheet with them and you can follow it to make tons of colors. Or you can make your own. They can be put in water to watercolor or in acrylic. Super cool!

  11. Busy, busy, busy, but still time to have a tidy up. You have to do it when you feel in the mood lol!
    Happy crafting, Angela x 63

  12. That is a lot of work sorting and moving stuff, this one I do know but it is looking good. Just make sure it is where you can use it asap this is important otherwise you won't be productive. As for the guessing game, we are all intelligent munchkins LOL

    Have a great week and thanks for visiting.

    Hugs Eliza & Yoda 14
    Happy WOYWW

  13. Hi Krisha, nice to see the before and after shots of your clean and tidy session, a vast improvement and you should be able to find things for a wee while now eh? LOL Annette #3

  14. Well done on the clear up... you got any time free?!! Can see something purple and spiky but not sure what it is... lol! Helen 5

  15. Great tidy up, or did you just wave a magic wand?
    Love the lamp, so streamlined and now decorated with various bits of what look like sticky tape.
    Keep young by crafting.
    Hugs, Neet 8 xx

  16. I've often felt that I spent more time cleaning and sorting then I do creating. I'm always looking for a way to make it more efficient when I'm creating. Thank you for visiting my blog and best of luck taming the paper!

  17. That is a massive sort have fun with it and isn't nice when it all starts to come together and easier to work with :) hugs Nikki 7
    PS I so agree with leaving comments and having to go all those extra steps just to say something not worth it really if they want a comment then make it easy :)

  18. It sounds like you have a game going on...Bessy's changing all the time, evolving and growing nicely. Carole

  19. You look like you are organised and ready for action! :)

  20. Oh would I love to come and sit at your desk just to have a good rummage! You have some interesting goodies on there and yes I can see a purple spikey thing in the pot!

  21. I spy a purple anemone (spelling?) sure been busy around Betsy this week. The reorg is coming along quite nicely I must say. I'm not Irish I just liked the design of the shamrock card. Found it a good way to kick start the mojo too. Thanks for the earlier visit! Hugs and Happy WOYWW! Nan G #101

  22. busy looking desk. Your desk always looks so much neater then mine...I am jealous... Have a great week and thanks for stopping by my desk! Vickie aka Okienurse #57

  23. Lovely organised space it makes me want to come over and make a mess. What a pity we are so far away, thank goodness for the internet.
