What's on my workdesk Wednesday

Morning folks from a chilly windswept and very wet corner of the country....windswept could be putting it mildly....for the last few days we have been buffeted big time by gale force winds....washing blowing off the line...car door almost ripped off it's hinges and me struggling not to be blown off my feet and taking to the air for my Mary Poppins impression...so there are consolations to being a little tub of lard.
Enough of my weather woes....it's Wednesday and time to join in the fun over at WOYWW and share what's on my workdesk today...well folks there hangs another tale. I have absolutely loads and loads and loads of crafty stuff I could be doing....so why on earth did I suddenly decide to have a tidy in the cubbyhole.....search me...must have been one of those mad hormone moments us girls suffer from occasionally.......needless to say once you start there is no turning back. Complete and utter chaos which even a cuppa can't fix but no option now but to grit my teeth and get stuck in and what's the bet that it will all end up back where it was originally.
But there are some consolations...I'd completely forgotten about these Maya Road tins chock full of chipboard pieces...just need some extra crafty time to use them all up and then I'll have lots of fabby tins to alter....
and wow was this a surprise....opened my cute little M&S bankie to find £26 hiding inside.....suddenly my mad moment didn't seem such a bad idea....
and more good news for this microfibre chap.....he managed to escape from his dark and dingy cupboard for a rare outing.....
but I am off out for lunch today.....so gotta get dusting....catch up with you all tomorrow
Hugs Kath xxx

morning Kath - good luckwith your tidying, if that was us, we'd have shuffled stuff onto the floor and started using the stash we'd just found! I've got one of those M&S tins and try to save up £1 coins to turn into euros for holiday spending! Mary

It always looks the worst right before the end. And to think you found all those chipboard pieces. Aren't you lucky. And money, too. Have a great day out and about and happy WOYWW.

Hi Kath, I just changed my subscribing method to your blog...I will be taking myself off your Feedburner/blitz list as I am now on your followers list on the right sidebar. I love your card creations and of course, Buddy:) He is a beauty! I have been cruising your past posts and there are two little fotos of two "bad" puppies on 6 June 2008. They are so cute, could I use these two fotos on my blog? Wishing you a wonderful day.

i know what you mean about how everything becomes a whole mess when you're tidying up! how nice to find those lovely tins!

Denise said...

Morning Kath & Buddy
Thankyou so much Kath for making me feel so much better. Can't stop laughing at the tins of Maya Road goodies. I take it you are like me and when there is a choice of things then you can't decide which variety you want so you buy one of each (that's what it looks like anyway, and I do that). Why we do it I don't know but it is part of being a crafter.
Have a good . Hugs and tickles behind the ears - Denise & Meg

Helen said...

Happy find in your tidying - it can pay off sometimes, but I never find money!! Have a lovely lunch.

sparklygirl-Tina said...

Pass me a tissue so I can wipe the drool off my chin as I look at all your crafty stash - and I KNOW that is not the half of it Kath! (I also know that jealousy will get me nowhere - and if my hubby could read this he would say I've got to be joking!) but I guess us crafty lot NEVER have enough!!

Have a good day and catch up soon.

Kirsti said...

I'm with Tina on this one...I had a fabby inspirational idea for more storage for my wee craft room yesterday but in means tackling the spare room cum toy room cum junk room and getting it gutted out to get the storage - maybe just the motivation I need...lol..have a great day - not so windy today!!! Kirsti xxx

Wipso said...

Lovely to see all your sorting and tidying. I'm sure you will love it all when it's done :-)

Anesha said...

Would love you to come and tidy my craft room! :) Image poor Buddy having to go out in such bad weather, huge hugs. Have a great day Kath. Anesha :)

Phree said...

Good luck with the tidying, one of the benefits is finding lost treasures like that MR chipboard.

Artyjen said...

All the best with the sorting out!

Hi Kath
What a lovely blog this morning! I do love a good nosey xx It always looks worse before it gets better when tidying the crafty stash. You are very controlled to not stop and make with your new finds. Hope you have a lovely lunch. My husband was going to treat me out for lunch but I am hugging the tissue box with a terrible cold, but at least the sun is shining down in Devon today. Love Em x

Anne said...

Minxy said...

Hay Kath, Isn't it just the best when you find a stash of money you forgot you put by.. i went to a festival one year, when we came back i packed everything away.. the following year i was getting ready for the festival again only to discover about £50 tucked into a purse, it had been sat there for a whole year lol

Bluefairy4U said...

Good morning Kath and Buddy, Lucky you finding that money, it won't last long will it more stamps can be bought he he. Cannot wait to see what you do with all those tins, goodness you do have some. Hope the weather has settled down now, we have had a very rainy night down in the South. Have fun big hugs to both of you JO xxxx

Laura said...

Good afternoon Kath, it was definitely blowy last night. You have lots of great stuff, I noted you didn't find the sweets in the tin lol. Night shift this week so they'll be no crafting for me or tidying, have a good day!

Can't wait to see all those tins altered....you are going to be very busy!

Bettythebaglady said...

Hormones-you've still got hormones-lucky old you!!! Good job you moved to a bigger cubby hole-what did you do with the old one or do you use that as your dining room? Before I get even more tied up in this one I'd better think about getting tea ready. Hugs BettyXXX

Andrea - Wales, UK said...

Tidying certainly pays off sometimes....£26.00 worth of pay for you to spend on lovely new stash!
Looking at that desk though I don't think you need anymore at the moment!

hope you had a nice lunch......A.xx

Doone said...

Jane said...

KindredSpirit said...

i love it when the weather is like that, although I might be being a little southern and romantic about it - it must get a little trying day after day!!!
Love the little tins! And the M&S one. Can't save for toffee though!

Chrissie said...

Tidying is good for the soul, but lunch out is probably even better!
Chrissie

Ciara said...

I hope you realise that £26 MUST be spent on crafty goodies!!!

It's scary how much mess you have to make in order to tidy up isn't it?!

Ciara

Sarpreet said...

I hate windy weather, you should have a clean out more often, Fab workspace, Happy WOYWW, thank you for showing us your workspace

JoZart said...

That was a fantastic find.... or are you trying to get us all to tidy out incase we think we'll make such marvellous discoveries! It's a ploy, a ruse, a scam, I reckon! thanks for the laff!
Hope you had a great lunch. It's been sunny and warm up here in the far off North West!

Sunshine Girl said...

Yes I had a mad moment a couple of weeks ago and tidied up - didnt find any money though so I am just wondering whether I should try again (ever the optimist me!) as my desk is back to its normal state of chaos - you have also reminded me that I have some chipboard in tins like that somewhere. Hope you had a great lunch.

Sid said...

What a load of fab containers love all that stuff !!

Cardmaking Galore said...

Need to do some tidying myself. Kath what astounds me is that even when you're tidying your Cubbyhole looks perfectly tidy! Wish I were as tidy as you

Morti said...

I know what suddenly came over you - the same thing that makes me keep my desk a bit tidy - WOYWW!!! LOL Great finds though!

Daniele said...

its amazing what you find when you have a grand tidy up....bet you've ear marked the £26 already for more must have stash.....lol

Becky said...

A cuppa won't cure it, but it couldn't hurt! I never find money when I tidy...lucky you!

Nikki said...

Those Tins look fantastic can't wait to see what you create with em

hugs Nikki

WW said...

I love those storage tins!

Heather x said...

Sorry I'm late Kath, isn't it great when you find a stash of cash that you have forgotten about :)
Hope the tidying went well, how much other forgotten stash have you found?
*hugs* Heather x

Julia Dunnit said...

Good grief, you were seized by something - I shouldn't have thought you ever had the need to do all that! Still, the two finds were worth it, and I hope it didn't take too long to put back into workable!
