WOYWW #207

Hello My Fellow Crafters,

It's time for another What's On Your Work desk Wednesday. It's that wonderful time of the week where we can have a peek at other crafter work space from all around the world. If you would like to join in,  take a pic of you desk, head on over to Julies blog the Stamping Ground, and add your name to the list.

Well here's my desk.

As you may remember, I'm in the process of moving.  My hubby has taken down my shelves, so everything is on my desk. I've manage to carve out some crafting space, because I need to make gifts and cards for my son's teachers. You can see the JustRite stamps I'm using, my heat and glue guns. The blue bins hold my stamps, they are separated by manufacturer.

 On the other side of my desk, you can see the finished cards, some Spellbinders dies, and some stamped images I just finished coloring with Copic and distress ink. I'm in the process of altering some boxes (teacher gifts) I bought from the Dollar Tree, they will hold some chocolates. The small black container holds the few Cheery Lynn dies I have. You can also see one of my ink trays in the back. This tray holds my distress reinkers, Glimmer Mist, distress stains, and various other inks.


Last week someone was curious about the DVD cases and how I use them. I purchase them to hold my Spellbinders dies. Each case hold two sets. I have labels on the binding so I know what's in each case.

Well that's it for me. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment.

Have a Blessed day
Hugs,
Regina

G'day regina
every time you mention your move I get a shiver as this will be me at the end of the year. You are doing well to create in amongst the move indeed. Oh I love gold and blue and I am sure the teachers will love what you are making

Hi Regina! I hope that your move goes well for you. I just LOVE the cards that you have done for your sons teachers, what a lovely thing to do. I love the DVD case idea and will keep that in mind. I also really like your green heat gun, green is my favourite colour and if that was around when I got mine, I would not have settled for boring blue lol! Have a great week and happy WOYWW.

What a clever way to store your dies. Very creative. It's too bad they don't come with a case when you buy them at the store.

Happy WOYWW from #10.

Neet said...

Hi - before I forget the die on my desk is a Spellbinders one - Anenome - but I think it looks like a poinsettia so use it for that.
Thanks for sharing your desk - how on earth do you cope with no shelves? Hope the move happens soon and you can get crafting back to normal for yourself. Good luck with the boxes and thanks for visiting me.
Hugs, Neet 2 xx

Oh, this is lovely! every desk I see I want to come and play! I must sort out my die-cuts tooo, they are so easily lost! At first Google plus sent me to another desk (couldn't comment because I refuse to join) and then I clicked away and there you were! Thank you for my snoop!
Have a HaPpY WoYwW!

Julie Ann Lee said...

Hi Regina, what a pretty desk you have. Even if you are in the process of moving and all the things from your shelves are on it, it still looks gorgeous! The cards you're making for the teachers look lovely. I used to do this when my kids were young, but they're 19 and 22 now! Have a lovely, creative day and thank you for sharing woyw. xxx

Julie Ann Lee said...

Just realized I've forgotten to leave my number on all the comments I made so far - stupid stupid me #58

Ria Gall said...

Hi Regina
oh gosh how are you coping with packing and still crafting? I can imagine the stress when the shelves came down and everything had to be placed on your lovely desk, hats off to you for still crafting around it all
Sending hugs on this WOYWW have a great day
Ria #24

Diane said...

Hi there, great to see your desk. I really need a glue gun stand like yours...mine keeps toppling over!
Diane#30

Joynana said...

Hi Regina, you have been really busy even with the move. Would love to see the finished projects for the teachers. #93

butlersabroad said...

Considering everything you've got going on I don't think your desk is too bad at all, and I'm very impressed that you're moving but still crafting! I have a vision of you still crafting away at your desk while they carry it and you, on to the truck!!

Hugs

Glenda Brooks said...

You store your dies the way I do. After all these years I have little cabinets here and there loaded with the cases. If I keep crafting I may have to rethink the shelves I store them on and do a large bookshelf. Hope your move goes smoothly!

scrappystickyinkymess said...

I hate moving - well I do and I don't. A lot of work, but being force to thin out all the stuff and clutter is almost worth it :)


Happy WOYWW!

Nan G said...

Lots of projects and moving! Don't you love using DVD cases for your die storage! I do the same. Happy WOYWW! Nan G #105 p.s. on the messy scale you're about even with Julia. :)

Gita said...

Your cards are so pretty. Love the blue and orange combo. Love the DVD storage for Spellbinders. Have you found the magnetic sheets anywhere at a good price? Brigita #113

Belinda Basson said...

Clever use of the DVD cases. I might just do the same...where to store them though? #63

Lunch Lady Jan said...

Hi there Regina! Good luck with the house move....I haven't done one for 16 years now and the thought of shifting all our stuff makes me shudder!
I love those spiral dies....got a real thing for those patterns. I especially love spirals in nature, like sea shells for example :-)
Hugs, LLJ 40 xxxx

Hi Regina, you have some lovely spellbinders on your desk today and your cards are lovely & bright. I like your ink trays, great way to keep everything together and at hand. Thanks for taking time to visit today. Hugs Mo x #60,

I love how your cards turned out, great colors! Those blue bins are adorable :) I always forget about my spellbinders... #3 this week, impressive! Haha!

What a great idea for storing your dies! Thanks for visiting earlier,

Caro said...

Isn't it hard to find space when everything ends up on your desk from missing shelves! I love the fact that you have managed it. The cards for your sons teachers look gorgeous. Thanks for sharing. Happy WOYWW. Caro x (#75)

Tamika said...

Neat die storage!

~Sue C said...

Wooo! Regina, I love the spellbinders dies you have. That glue gun looks amazing. I just tossed mine... the trigger was broken. =( Oh well! Any opportunity for something new, huh?! LOL! That little purse with the heart...GORGEOUS! Hope the move is going smoothly. Thank you for visiting me earlier. Happy Wednesday!!! hugs, Sue

~Rasz~ said...

Hi Regina. Today is my first day of WOYWW!!! I love your workspace and your organizational ideas, like the DVD album! Did you get your hot glue gun holder separately or did it come with the gun? I sure need a holder, my glue gun flops all over when I try to stand it up in between uses. I'm going to be a new follower and I really like your blog. Have a great day!

KatzElbows said...

I can't believe you're managing to create and plan a move at the same time. And you're creating such beautiful cards as well. Good luck with the move.

Cheers, Rachel #65

Marianne said...

dontcha just hate when moving gets in the way of crafting? But you seem to be able to do a fine job amidst the chaos.
Happy WOYWW !

glitterandglue said...

Wish I was back in the classroom - would love to receive those gifts. Trust you manage to get more crafting done amidst the packing up. have a great week.

Dainty Diva said...

I have been looking at that glue gun and contemplating about it. I see a lot of crafters using it. Hope you get all your teacher gifts completed. #156

Sue from Oregon said...

Oh so lovely are those cutting dies! Thanks for popping in to say Hello too! ♥ Sue Kment 35

Darnell J Knauss said...

You are a dedicated crafter, Regina, to craft under those conditions and not just buy the cards and giftees for the teachers this year!

I use the Stampin Up! CD case for storage, but I'm about out. Where do you purchase yours? My email address is on my profile page. Thank you!

And thanks for coming by the Playhouse earlier! Darnell #64

Lisa Richards said...

Very thoughtful of you to make gifts for the teachers! You're so organized!
Have a great WOYWW!

April Story said...

Love your blue bins. And your cards are lovely. Great colors. April #132

Debs Willis said...

Hi Regina, am amazed that you're still managing to craft whilst moving, as I am REALLY struggling! Not only to find time, but I have t okeep my craft desk tidy (ouch!) for people to view the house - nightmare!

Love those Just Rite stamps - I have stamp envy now :-)
Hugs
Debs #115

dottielottie said...

Hi Regina, you look to be managing very well for someone in the middle of a move lol. Your cards are lovely and I love the little case on the left just waiting to be altered. Great storage tray too.
Happy art making
Hugs Lottie #132

Queen Lightwell said...

Those cards are gorgeous! Love that color combo, its very striking. :) Your desk really looks pretty good, especially for someone in the midst of a move! Have a great WOYWW~Deeyll #166(Just a day late! lol)

Bobby said...

If I was in the middle of a move I don't think I could find anything. I store my clear stamps in DVD cases and I think they're great for organizing.

sandee said...

OK, here's the thing, first I am apologizing for not having been around, but I have been uber busy and now I am going to have the audacity to ask you to do a favor for me ( shakes head, I'm shameless ) But I am in a contest and sad to say but it's the truth, it's a popularity vote, so here's the favor...would you be so kind to go over and vote for me? I sure would appreciate it from the bottom of my pitiful heart! lol (vote for the camera, please ) (http://www.genuinelyjanestudios.com/genuinelyblog/gjs-design-a-book-contest-top-three-finalists-announced/ waving hi from the hills of North Carolina ♥

Maudieroff Roffey said...

Hi Regina - thanks for showing me the dvd cases - it was me asking - they look fabulous what great storage... happy WOYWW [Friday cheat - yes I am a bit slow this week LOL] Mxx #169

Elizabeth said...

Apologies for being so late visiting this week – life simply intervened! No shelves! Regina, I'd be tearing my hair out - glad you have found a square inch to craft in. Your spellbinder storage is great - I have similar storage for my dies and it works a treat :)
Have a great weekend. Elizabeth x #81

Claire said...

such a busy, colourful desk - even without the shelves!
sorry it's taken so long to reply - the days have just evaporated!
happy belated WOYWW x
