What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday


Looky...Looky at my new copic holder...sadly, it came broken and I have to return it for a new one, but it is OH so fine!  I joined in last week in this "new to me" challenge and it is so much fun...Just go to your desk and snap a picture and post it...pretty simple. You can see this week...again not much stamping, but I was making up card packages along with $ for my monthly Bunco meeting prizes.   The girls always like hand made cards.

Also on my desk is my ongoing project of unmounting some of my wood mounted stamps. Let's see...a new lightbulb for my lightbox set up, a new box of ATG tape (I hate buying this stuff, but love how long it lasts!), some ribbon and if you peek real hard you might see my new Eline Pellinkhof stamp that was gifted to me by Larissa!  Okay--a question for you  rummage Wednesday girls across the ocean...what should I put in the old pop crate? The openings are fairly small...too small for ribbon and too shallow for punches etc.  Maybe I will make it sort of a memory box (pics of my grandbabies?). What do you think?


 

This is the left side of my desk...you can see the big stamp pad holder my Dad made, my master copic list...and my chocolate in the red bag (with more candy hidden behind)! You might consider joining in on this challenge, the stampers are just so much fun!!!

Pin It!

Please Sue, tell me what Bunco is? The bags with cards in look really great, fab presentation. LOVE the pen holder..maybe they will replace it without needing it back??! I do not know about the coke crate - but when an idea pops into my head I'll let you know - mostly to whinge because these things have a habit of popping nto my head at around 3am!! Lovely WOYWW again, really enjoyed my visit!

Paula Gale said...

wow Sue from oregon!!! What a FAB desk... there are so many fantastic storage ideas to feast the eyes on here I can't help feeling a pang of jealously... I sooo love the white turnable caddy thing - i've seen it on soo many desks I'm afraid its just another think I think I now need... also love the copics storage - do you think promarkers would fit in one of those???

FAB FAB FAB

I think this looks a really fun desk, I love those storage ideas.

Larissa said...

Hi Sue

I also want to know what Bunco is. :) Loved the look on your desk again. I tried to make a picture myself this week, but the light is so bad that the pictures look horrible! So maybe next week! :) I spotted the Eline stamp immediately. Love to see what you are doing with it. Your copic storages looks awesome. When can I get a class from you to learn to colour with copics? :)

Hugs,
Larissa

Hi Sue from Oregon, how great to see your workdesk!
I'm seriously impressed with your Copic collection and all those SU stamp pads too!
I might have to peruse these pics for quite some time!

TFS Sue! Love your copic and stamp holders. Lucky you to have such a talented dad to make a beautiful stamp holder like that!

peggy gatto said...

small favorite stamps, short chalk inkers, clear containers to hold charm embellishments, or just some of your favorite tiny treasures that are hiding in a drawer or box!
Wonderful space!!!

me said...

Haha, I laugh at how nice your desk looks! I have an entire room dedicated to my projects and with the two that I am tackling right now, my closet (which is a walk in) looks like a bomb went off! I saw some of your scrapbook pages on your blog and I thought they were so cute! I would love for you to visit my site/blog, leave me a comment, follow it, whatever! Let me know what you think! www.scrapamomentwithme.blogspot.com

Angie said...

LOVE all your storage ideas ...shame your holder came broken ....shame they want it back lol

Elena said...

Sorry to hear about broken storage for Copics...
Thank you for sharing the picture of your crafting desk!

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

Your work space is so well organized. I love all the special holders you have for your tools. You certainly know how to pack things into your work space. And of course, that old soda/pop holder is what caught my eye last week. I really love it and, as I told you before, plan to paint or distress mine as soon as I have a bit of time.

Sorry I'm so late visiting, and on my first ever WOYWW, too. I hope to be more punctual next week. Two questions: what is a Bunco and what is ATG tape?

Cheryl said...

I'm impressed how organized your desk is! I love your ink pad holder and copic pen holder too!

Autumn Rain Creations said...

Oh my goodness, I wish I was as organized as you. Love your workspace and your blog:)

Best wishes to you,
April

theneon said...

Sue, I can't believe your ever so tidy and neat desk -- you are amazing! Great ink pad holder, great copic pen holder, I can see how you are able to make such delightful creations!

butlersabroad said...

What a great desk and lots of really great storage too. Have a look at Nicks blog, she altered a box similar to yours, though probably not as deep, and it's stunning, it was a few posts back. She's no 23 in the list on WOYWW.

The Inky Minx said...

From your pics it looks like not only is your desk fab but the rest of your crafting space too. Love your pen holder and ink pad housing, as for the pop box, i think you should send that to me lol..or if you have small enough jars that would fit in each slot, then fill them with brads or buttons, in an array of colours!!!

Carolyn King said...

fabulous--i have copic marker storage envy! Where did you get that holder? HOpe you can get it replaced!

Cher~ said...

Love the ink cubbies. You've got lots of great storage ideas. Can't wait to see more of your room.

Lorie said...

I would be so embarrassed to show my work space. Now, in a few weeks when my room is done I'm sure I'll be happy to share it with everyone! :)

Handmade with Love said...

Wow I love all of your storage, there really is a place for everything on your desk and I love the way you have presented your cards, thats a really lovely idea. I think photos or memorabilia would be great for the crate that you had there. Tracey x

Well well well-get your Dad to pop over to the uk and bring me one of those stamp pad holders-he must be a very talented fella. Yes-I too would love a wood floor but there's a small matter of moving all the stash (16 and some years of it)and as we are both slightly challenged in the health department it won't be happening today. Will be interested to see more of the storage ideas. Did I spot an ironing board in the background? How did that creep in?
Hugs BettyXXX

Bettythebaglady said...

Plus forgot to say -was inspired by this to get on the ole internet and search out some refills for my (very ancient) ATG-(a bit like me) and I found some on the 3M's website in the uk in a sale so I ordered them-free postage too. Have been considering painting it as it is so scruffy looking. Got it bad Love BettyXXX

Debs said...

ooooh I love the dark wood compartment container on the right - what are you going to do with it?

Kathy said...

wow! you may not "do" flowers, but you sure do ink and copics! Thanks for letting us have a good old nosey around your desk

a portland granny said...

love your room! do you get the copics locally? I really want to get into them, but want to try them out.

Would love to meet you for lunch sometime if you are in the Gresham area.a I love th stuff that you do and feel inspired by all of your wonderful creations!!

SueH said...

Thanks for visiting and leaving a message on my blog Sue.
I think I'm in love with your desk.....especially that White caddy....think I need one of those!

You were asking what 'Dumfing' was?

If you pop over to Annie's blog there's a fab explanation.

Toucan Scraps said...

you've got one incredible stash fileing system there! I'm impressed.
What is a Bunco Meeting? looks like you give awesome prizes away at it.

Joanne said...

Just found your blog. Your dad is very clever to have made your stamp pad storage. Does he have drawings for it by any chance 'cos my DH is willing to make one for me? xx

Cathy (Mercieschild) said...

Sue, that card is amazing, Wow, you are awesome. It gives me incentive to try more. Hugs Cathy

Silvia said...
