Good day WOYWWer's & fellow bloggers!
Bit of a change to the old workdesk this morning - I've had a set of drawers under the desk.
Here's the desk and the 'wall of fame' behind:
On the desk is a few cards I need to post - but that will be later (or tomorrow because WOYWW consumes my Wednesdays - and some of Thursday!!!), a teapot I cut out last night, a beautiful bookmark a friend of a friend made for me and some cards waiting to be sent to work for colleagues' birthdays. All in all - a bit boring (that is until I get started crafting)...
When I brought everything in the craftroom out of the garage, I needed to empty 3 sets of those plastic drawers - the type on wheels, which are now, after a few weeks, completely empty. Each set had 4 drawers. I tried to put one set under the desk a few weeks ago but they were too tall, so that put paid to that idea - hence everything being on my desktop - limiting crafting space.
I asked my OH to take me to IKEA on Saturday for a new set of draws to go under the desk (as its too uncomfortable to drive and hump things around) and all I got were huffs, puffs and sighs... he wanted to watch the football, which I didn't begrudge him because he's been doing all the laundry, most of the cooking and all of the (food) shopping (I can still manage the craft shopping thank you - tee hee). He's a true diamond geezer!!!
Anyway, my Mum (bless her) who was here came up with an inspirational idea (which thicko me hadn't even thought of)... "why don't you reduce the drawers from 4 to three so they fit under the desk" - OMG - what a perfect solution. The drawers are the module stack together type, are already empty, already paid for and in the garage. No money to spend, no trip to IKEA and OH can watch the football. My Mum is brilliant! 10 minutes later, drawers were reduced to 3 and in situ. The fourth drawer is on my desk with 'work in progress' tidied away and can be popped from surface to floor to create more room in no time at all. Eureaka!!!!
Anyway, without further ado - and before you click off this page through boredom, here are said drawers:
This drawer, at the moment has some of my tools in, but you know how it is when you get something 'new', if you're like me, you have to try things out and change things until I'm satisfied that it's 'working' for me!
My Mum kindly labelled all my inks up so that I can see which is which as I wanted to stack them on their side (also so I can easily see which ones I need to buy)!!
This basically has all my little books in, my labels and my box of various adhesives.
Now you can say you've seen my drawers - tee hee!!!
If you want to take part in What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday or even just have a good old nose round some more desks (there were over 60 last week - although I stand corrected), blog off to Julia's desk - which is the starting point, them make a comment, and follow everyone else who has joined in - they will all have left a comment in Julia's comment box to let you know they've posted their workdesk - click here for your starting point and pay every one a visit - and let them know you've been.
Thanks for dropping by and taking the time to read this post. Please come back again.
