Organize your Stuff: Week 13 (round 4): Stamps Part 1 and WOYWW

Happy Summer Solstice...ok it was yesterday!  Here in the Pacific NW, That meant that sunset was at like 9:15 PM and sunrise this moring was before 5!  If only the temperatures would raise themselves above the 60s-70s we might actually have a summer!

For those travelling on the WOYWW, here is our workdesk. Creative Me is working on a Mini Album for our local scrapbook store, The Mad Scrapper. It is our second mini to get picked up for kitting (our first was a My Mind’s Eye American Made that sold out in 4 days! Woo Hoo!) and trust me, the personalities are working hard to put it together so as not to disappoint!

To see the rest of the WOYWW desks, refer back to the Stamping Station. They have the whole list of fabulous Desks!

For those in the Organization Challenge, here is where we keep our stamps.

The wood mounted (old SU stamps are on the left in an old VHS tower) on one side and acrylic in the middle (mostly Technique Tuesday and a few others) and on the other side (CTMH in CD case "egg crates").

The POW has spent this week dealing with the misery that is …no laptop. It has been truely paralyzing! Our poor little red laptop of two years was dropped one time too many, and has passed on to its electronic maker in the sky! OCD Me was beside herself as she could not check her sites or mail, PA Me could not put off things by trolling the internet. Creative Me was reduced to using a smart phone to look for ideas and get inspiration from blogs. It was sad.

We bought a new laptop this weekend, but the transfer of data process took forever…ok, until tonight. Now we are back!

Today was also the last day of school for our three children- Oldest Child (now *gasp* an 8th Grader), Illusive Middle Child (now in 3rd Grade), and Girl Friday (now in 1st Grade). This means that we will have much more time/ none at all to work on Scrapbooking and Card Making, as it is now summer! Hopefully we will not be too busy, as it will be September 1st and Back to School before you know it!

Gosh, yours get off school early... I would find it hard to scrap with little people around wanting things all the time so I hope you find some middle ground for your crafty time!!

Tracy said...

No laptop!!!
I am having anxiety just thinking about it.
I can't count how many times I check mine during the day.
So happy you have it back.

Great stamp storage. Lots of things going on, glad you got your computer..Happy WOYWW

Glad you are back online and able to do all the things you want. I keep all my files backed up on an external hard drive so I can transfer easily between computers if there is a problem. I also install all my crafting discs on the same drive and use the images from there, rather than getting the discs out each time. Thank yo for sharing your desk this week and for your kind comments on mine.
