Wednesday again, I haven't minded them coming around so fast lately as I am not a huge fan of January!  I don't mind winter in the lead up to Christmas but really I am just done with the snow now! Unfortunate for me really as it will be here until well into March!
I get so excited when I see signs of the real thaw, like grass! 
Still, when the weather is grotty it is a great time to play with paper!
So, time for WOYWW!
That is because I spent all last weekend tidying up my room and clearing off my desks!  The untidiness that had been lingering since before Christmas was starting to wear me down. 
So here is my lovely white desk, all neat and tidy.  It is now the computer desk, I have decided that it works better that way.  It only took me 8 months to realize it!
My lovely farmhouse table is now cleared of clutter and available to work on!  I will show it in action next week, I promise it won't be so tidy!
I have kept just a tray of everyday items at the end, it just wouldn't be right to put everything out of sight.
 This lovely parcel of goodies was in my mailbox yesterday, part of a swap I took part in along with some other crafty buddies!  Yummy!
 If you would like to join in with WOYWW pop along to Julia's blog to get the details!

Even when my desk is "clean" it never looks that good! And it looks like you had one generous swap buddy, can't wait to see how you put those goodies to use.

Oooh just look at all that lovely new stash! What fun you will have with it! I simply love your beautiful white desk with the shelves over, and your fabulous big table. It all looks just great.

Thanks for your lovely comment - and I agree about taking my art out and about with me! My motto is "Have art, will travel!"

Happy WOYWW,

Now that is a clean desk, hurts my eyes! We can see green at the moment, but after the temperature inversion tonight it's all going to be a Narnian shade of green! Lovely parcel to find in the post. I've just won some Wild Orchid Flowers on a blog and apparently there's a show box full, so I'm really looking forward to that arriving, but where I
m going to put them will be another story!!

Wow, your craft space is fabulous! I love all that white storage!! Beautifully done. What a lovely space to craft. Will have to try and emulate that when I get back to New Zealand! Hugs, Wends xxx

Wow, that's one clean desk! I understand what you mean in wanting a good tidy up, I did something similar after Christmas and felt so much better when everything was sorted.
Blimey, you must be somewhere far north if you've got snow until March...I suppose you have the infrastructure to cope with it whereas we just seem to get stuck in half an inch of snow..sigh!

Will you be painting your table white to fit in with the desk> I have to say the white desk looks lovely but great to have a bigger working area.

Very nicely cleaned up, Deb! I didn't make it to WOYWW last week, but I popped in to see what you're up to. I get unproductive, too, when I get too messy, and now you're all cleaned up just in time to tackle that HUGE pile of toys! Wonderful goodies!!

(I usually return the compliment when I have followers, but I didn't see my mug in your wall of friends, so I clicked to join. I'm sorry that wasn't done a few months ago; complete oversight on my part!)

See you again on Wednesday, I hope! Darnell
