Well I can just about accept that it's Wednesday already, but October? Good grief Charlie Brown. It's a double good grief really - look at my desk, you'd think nothing creative had happened on it over the week, but believe me it's all good! Because I've been working on the calendar LOs for A Magnetic Year in a Day, I've had to tidy up in between so as not to double up on supplies used etc; it has caused me to work in a slightly more disciplined manner. Slightly. I still, as you can see, break the number one rule really, which is not to have a liquid on the desk. It has to be said that I have only experienced a problem with breaking this rule once 'in all my years as a scrapbooker'. It was my coffee, at a crop, and I managed to launch it across the table, the arc of liquid missed absolutely everything I owned and was working on and landed with a large and horrible splash on the front of the album which belonged to the friend sitting opposite. Just for once, I lucked out - the album was in its plastic cover and apart from soggy scrap paper, no harm done. Can you imagine. heart stopping stuff, I seem to recall that Angie knows only too well what I mean! This picture was taken at 10 o,clock this morning though, and I can't operate without a second coffee at about this time - I'd get a caffeine withdrawal headache! So my desk is not hugely intersting today, unless you want to extend the discussion about things we buy and don't use....the lovely Maya Road tins of chipboard shapes are a total case in point. As I had to dust the tins, I figure their 'new'ness has passed and I can get on and make use of my investment! It's rewarding to know after yesterdays post that lots of you have things you don't use, and to a greater extent I agree with Paige who commented that it reinforces your mojo to rediscover some forgotten tool. Sure reinforces the guilt too! Also fascinating to hear what you've got but don't use! I use all 3 sizes of Xyron, regularly. I use my silent setter still; I don't have a Big Bite so the long reach stuff is still done this way. I think I can blame the Cropadile for my lack of long reach embellishing actually! Linda never uses her Marvy Le Plumes - I wouldn't be without mine....I must use a core of colours every week. Of course, Tombow marched onto the scene and sorta stole the felt-tip show, but I still prefer Le Plume. At one stage (during the Shop years) I had a matching inkpad for every felt tip! Yum.
Come on then, be brave and show us your work area - doesn't have to be a desk, and it certainly doesn't have to be tidy - check some previous WOYWW posts to see that it's not normal for me! Leave a comment so we can swing by and gawp - love that!
