I'm a little piggy--- WOYWW?


This is how I keep my main work desk clean...I throw all my paper in a basket until it gets so full that I must eventually file it away. I try to file paper away as I use it...but sometimes that just does not happen. So...tonight I waited for a good show to come on the  TV, and piled it all out on my bed by colors or brand and then filed it away in the folders I have set up for them. The last picture is my basket...ready to start all over again! This basket sits right next to my main stamping area...real convenient!

I decided I needed to pick up the place a wee bit so I can decide what I want to take with me on my mini vacation coming up this weekend where there is no TV or distractions...so I am going to take my copics and some fun images....or maybe my big roll of ezmount and work on unmounting some stamp sets...still undecided...hmmmm...what to do, what to do!

It is that time of the week to take a peek at  Julia's What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday...
I am still trying to recruit some of my stampin' buddies to join in...come on Lorie LOL!



 Here's a little project I made for the Stamps and Smiles new release. A cute little box and a gift tag size card. I used Kraft and Vanilla paper from SU!, stamping the moons/stars in white craft ink and cutting out the little bottles to put on the box...maybe to hold a little binky or a baby ring???

I am off to join in the fun at WOYWW over at Julia's...see ya there!

Pin It!

Cath Wilson said...

LOL, I do that, too!! Doesn't really work though cos I end up with several baskets and/or boxes before I get around to filing it all!! Great artwork. Happy WOYWW! Cath x

Helen said...

Hi, I have a box of scraps that I chuck half finished or didn't quite work out bits into, it's overflowing at the moment, needs sorting... when can you get here?!

You always have the most clever storage solutions. That basket is a super idea. Have a fun weekend. Happy WOYWW.

The basket is a great idea - if it weren't for the cleaning up! Enjoy your weekend!

I really like that basket Sue but I think you should take the price tag off, lol!!! Have a great mini vacation I'm off for four days tomorrow afternoon and I'll be taking some stamped images and some pencils with me. Will most likely forget the tent though!!!

Allison said...

I do that with my paper too...and ugh, when I finally get to filing it, it takes forevah! Loving these baby bottle creations...esp. with the gray!

{Lynn - that's me!} said...

OMGosh Sue - your project is just so adorable. Your little box with the baby bottles is such a great companion for this set.

I think you would pass out if you saw my crafting area at the moment...to me, you mess looks very tame. HA! Have a great day!

Heidi said...

How in the world do you have the patience to sort all that paper? Wow, that's a huge project!
Love the little stinker card and box, you're so creative!

Cath said...

The basket is a great idea but I know I would never sort it.

A lovely idea for organisation but I'm a "have to clear it away properly or DH will bin it" kinda girl - ROFL. Love the card and box.... thanks for sharing!

Silli said...

What a sweet baby project, Sue!
I am a little piggy too, but I liked your idea on organizing things! :)

theneon said...

whew! What a relief to know that there is another little piggy in the world! My "piggy pen" is always stacked with the likes of your basket. You always share such delightful projects, though, you are surely more organized than you let on!

Great idea on the basket. I have one of those sterilite plastic bins under my work area and I just throw scrap in it. I bet that sucker weighs 40 pounds by now! LOL Love your mini baby card and box. Lots of cutting for those little bottles, but they sure are cute! Best, Curt

Lynnor said...

Quite a little project you had going there!! Looks like a good system! Love those baby projects..the baby bottles are so cute!

Kristine said...

LOL that's funny, mine usually looks kinda similar except I have a 10 ft. long counter that's PILED with scraps of dp and other c.s. and Nesties get hidden underneath and I actually lost my paper piercer for about 8 months!! But recently (2 weeks ago) my 11 yr. old helped me clean it all up (she did most of it!) and now I've been able to put things away and keep it all cleaned up. She's my li'l organizer, I'd be a mess w/o her! LOL.

Cute baby box--love the sentiment and bottles :)
