Organize your Stuff: Week 1 (round 5): WOYWW #125 & space audit


Well, once again it is Wednesday, and therefore, it is time to break out the camera for a WOYWW (What’s on your work desk Wednesday) view. For a change, OCD Me has made some headway, and we have a clean work space! (*gasp*)

We tackled all the detritus in the general scrapping/ card making area, and even weeded through our scraps. For more WOYWW spaces (any of which are more interesting than mine!) please click over to the always gracious and fabulous Julia at the Stamping Ground.

Our card this week was our design team entry for the Tuesday Trio Sketch #90: lots of layers! And boy were there ever! Creative Me was boggled at first on how to get so many onto such a small space. However, like always, she came through in a pinch and made the POW and the rest proud in the end!


For those who follow us regularly, we have finally finished round 4 of the Organization Challenge (originally posted here in May 2009 by Wookiemouse at 2 Peas in a Bucket). Since then, it has taken on a life of its own over at 2 Peas, thanks in no small part to the Fabulous Crisann, the moderator since then!

We admit, that we have been a bit slack in round 4, especially when it came to scrapbook layouts. So, the POW promises, PROMISES, to be better in round 5! (and OCD Me will make her stick too it, too!).

For week 1, anyone following along, you need to scrap a layout, make a card, do what you do, and figure out what works, and what you need to change. It could be as simple as moving your adhesive closer (or those dreaded button that Fabulous Spouse hates), or loving the way that the ink is filed. Your inner OCD Me and Creative Me will have a blast.  The rest, not so much. Hmmmmmm….

This week has been super busy and tiring, as Fabulous Spouse was officially diagnosed with pneumonia, and removed from much of the outdoor activity parental duty roster.

However, that does not mean that things slowed down! This week, our boys were the big men on the field.

Oldest Child was the Offensive Line Captain (in red between purple #7 and #23) for the 8th Grade Football game at the High School Stadium.

Illusive Middle Child (in black to the left of blue # 20) was also picked to be the Defensive Line Captain (and have his first game as a starter) the same week.


...and not to be left out, Girl Friday cheered as usual!

Let’s just say that We were very proud parents!

Off to travel the world, one desk at a time! Happy WOYWW!

I wasn't sure if I'd come to the right blog when I saw that clear desk, LOL!!! I have mad clearouts as well when I can't see the work surface. I must admit, I do feel better afterwards!
Loved your comment on my blog! My youngest, G3, who is 15 and 6'1, was running around like a kid in a sweet shop. 'Look at this...and this..and this.. Can I have???..' etc
But I did quite well in the museum shop getting some sneaky presents for him for Christmas - Hah!!
Hugs, LLJ #43 xx

I miss those days of peewee football (or whatever you call it). And your daughter is an adorable cheerleader.:-) I am in dire need of organizing my scrap space. Now you are getting me motivated! Thanks for sharing!

Danielle said...

You made me smile, because just a few days ago I had posted my desk all nice and clean. I received so many nice comments on my organized desk that when I started to work a couple of days later, I had to take pictures to show people what it was really like. I felt like I was deceiving people into thinking that I created that neatly. Haha! Love your desk space, though! Now, go make a mess of it! lol...

I love your workplace, i'm afraid mine will never be so tidy maybe because i don't have enough space to organize :) and thank you for your comment in russian. i do appreciate it :) but i'll be very glad if you'd talk to me in english. online translators only tend to distort original message :(

Wish you happy WOYWW!
