What's on your Workdesk? (Wednesday #88)

Another Wednesday, another photograph of my desk... at least I am back on my desk this week and not still taking over the kitchen table like last week! For those who wondered it is a large table that seats 8 people and I had every part of it covered! I also had my guillotine and Sizzix Big Shot on the kitchen bench so there was no much room for food preparation or eating!
I finally got around to using my new Hero Arts Cling stamp and I am trying it out again. I used it on a card for my grandmother who turned 88 recently. Will post it soon.

THANKS!!! to all those lovely commenters from last week. I am sorry I didn't get back to everyone but my daughter started school last Friday (Yes I know, a goofy day to return to school for the year but that's the Government for you!) and my son was unwell all week and we weren't even sure if he would get to school on Friday. He made it for half a day so that was an achievement.

A  big THANK YOU also to those wonderful people who commented on my Pay It Forward post. I will be posting something to you all very soon xxox

Link up your desk to Julia's blog and join in the workdesk fun!

Thanks for looking...have a great day!
~ Susan xxox

That all looks very neat and tidy, and I love those pots of pens (yup, I have a bad pen habit!).


Sandra said...

oh it's lovely looking at your desk, so lovely and tidy ... I'm sure it's not always so - but I do love a tidy desk. I love too your pen holders - I need to find someway of holding my promarkers, sadly they don't have the colours on the tops like your copics.

Elizabeth said...

Great shot of your desk Susan. I've just watched a Hero Arts demo using that stamp to do some shadow stamping - very effective. elizabeth x #79

Sheilagh said...

Oh to be so neat, I am a very messy worker. I have resisted pens so far, but my resistance is failing fast.

hope everyone is feeling like themselves soon. I spy with my little eye: SU stamps, Copious Copics, MFT & PTI Dies - so much to love here.

Hope things have returned to normal in your house Susan! Love that HA stamp, I have a couple arriving in the mail soon, won a store credit in a challenge so decided to invest in a few more HA's!

Hope the first day at school went well. A big day for everyone.

Thanks Susan for your tip on Spotlight and magnetic tape I went over yesterday (very naughtily) and purchased some then sat up last night (when should have been in bed.. again!) and stuck it inside all of my Nesties so they are nestled in there beautifully, it works a treat! thanks so very much!
