What's on my workdesk???

If you are a regular visitor to Julias blog, you will know that she takes a pic of her workdesk every Wednesday, and encourages the rest of us to share our work desks too. Well, as i don't have one (shame!) and simply work on the kitchen table, there is rarely much there mid week, as my craft stuff goes away so we can eat...... but not in December! As i have been working away on my Journal every day it seems pointless clearing away daily, so it all just gets shoved to one end of the table. So what can you see on my workdesk today?

Front left of shot, my Journal with yesterdays page, atop paper trimmer and 2 12x12 boxes full of stash (and bits) being used for this project.
Behind this my Bits and Pieces box, with pens, scissors, 3D foam etc and (OMG!!!) some peel offs.... my kids have been making Christmas cards, that's my excuse and i'm sticking to it!)
Behind this the obligatory red IKEA pop up bin to keep rubbish under control.
Next to the stash boxes a little box full of Paperchase stash, felt shape, jingley bells etc. A small box of fabulously useful Doodlebug alphabet stamps, and an unknown carrier bag belonging to DD2 which has been there 2 weeks... must ask her to move it!
To the right of this space... so we can still (just about) eat at the table!

To todays page, the prompt was to make a very quick page, about visitors. I stamped the ribbon (using the doodlebug stamps), letters are a mish-mash of some Thickers I had last year to make up the title, date stamp as usual, and as my pages are much bigger than last year i added a little Christmas tree, just because i felt like it!

Am feeling virtuous today as have made the tea (beef curry ) AND the lunch (homemade veg soup) and set the fire for later. I think it will be frosty again tonight!

Have a good day all.

How lovely to see your stash! And how amazing that we're all so different..I gave away my set of alpha peg stamps (the only alpha I've EVER parted with!) - they drove me nuts...funny huh. If I had a kitchen big enough (for more than 2 people to stand in) it would defo be my craft nice to be at the centre of things doing your own thing. Love your WOYWW!

Can I come for tea please? Or lunch would do!
Great to be at the heart of things when crafting Ann. Your space looks so tidy - you should see mine - well, I am still making cards!
LOL @ peeloffs! Whisper it - I have some too - but only for cards.

I used to use my kitchen table even though I had a so-called craft desk but bought a new one a couple of months ago and do use it now :) Both the home made soup and curry sound good yum yum!

what a great journal! If I was good enough at getting something crafty done daily I would love to do one of those! Great job on your first WOYWDW!

I'm on my way for dinner, I may be a bit late due to the snow, so save me some!

How lovely getting to leave all your stash out x

Shoved to one end of the table.....words I know so well….Lol!
It’s comforting to know I’m not the only one who does that and I’ve got my own craft room, so don’t really have an excuse.

Love the journal; it must be fun to make.

You have been busy, your journal looks fab and you've had time to cook for 2 meals, mine have had to put up with Fish & Chips!!! Look forward to seeing next weeks desk.Hugs Pam

Good to see you taking part in WOYWW. I am an admirer of your scrapbooking style and again you've made a beautiful album page.
It may be at one end of the kitchen table (and my guess it's the larger end!) but all that stash looks very at home there.
