What's on Your Workdesk? Wednesday #87

Wow, made it to everyones again, took me a few days.  Once again I had loads of fun visiting.  I tried to leave a comment for everyone, of course word verification may have been a problem.   I only try a few times before I give up...lol 

I got a lot of questions about the cardboard I use to protect my cuttlebug plates.  Let me explain, it can't be too thick or you could damage your bug.  I use the cardboard from empty cereal boxes, or any cardboard  that is about that thickness.  Once it has been used you will have to use another piece for your next cut, unless the next cut is smaller.  I usually mange to get several cuts out of one piece.  You can even use the cut out piece of cardboard to add depth or re-enforcement to your DP or cardstock.

Thanks so much to all of you that had time to stop by and leave me such nice comments.  Onto this weeks chaos.  As you can see from my pic, sometimes I like to surrounded myself  with lots of  surfaces...lol  Gives me room to enjoy so many things at once.  


All I know for sure is that Julia from the Stamping Ground has turned lots of us into WOYWW addicts!  Once you start there's no stopping..ROFL

Can't wait to see what's on your workdesk!

Thanks for stopping by, my blog candy is still going.   Check out my sidebar if you are interested, it's yummy!

  Hugs, Marjo

Nice view of the fabbie desk.

HarmonySweetpea said...

Wow that's impressive getting to everyone. I never have the time...and if I did too much secret blogging at work, I might get in trouble lol Those tips about the cuttlebug are great as mine is sitting at the post office waiting for collection :-D Great photo!

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

That view really puts your desk into perspective, Marjo. I tried to use an old drink coaster and it was so thick it cracked my old Sizzex. I like the idea of cereal type boxes. Now if I only bought something in a box, I'd be in business. (#8)

Kezzy said...

Congrats on being number 1!!! I love your area it must be brill just to be able to turn your chair and it's all at hand, lots of craft space love it. Ade back tomorrow night so I will finally get time to enter your candy at least if I get it wrong he can sort it out (he is a computer wiz but has a annoying habit of always wanting to teach me and won't just do it for me!!! Doh!).

Helen said...

I haven't made it to everyone for ages, so it's very impressive - as is your craft space!

Tracey Brossart said...

He he, your area kinda looks surrounded like mine...I too have a TV tray set up to use for an extra surface...on top of the 3 desks I already have...lol! And yes you are awesome for getting around to everyone...I try so hard and never seem to have the time. I was hopping on through until Sunday and still didn't make it to everyone's blog! And by the way, thanks for personally stopping by my blog last week to let me know about the cardboard! Oh and Maddies card is too cute!! Off to go enter your candy! I thought for sure I had already entered your candy, because I so love yummy candy, but I guess not...lol! :D

Happy Wednesday!!

Julia Dunnit said...

Takes me back - I used to work in the middle of four surfaces..looks great! I see ike me you have the cricut so that the mat snakes up and down the wall! I love that little blue and yellow trug - did you paint it?

sandra de said...

You must have the prettiest bug surrounded by all the other lovely stuff i spy. I love the cardboard idea and will definitely be giving it a go. It is also a good way to recycle all those cardboard bits and pieces. Congrats on making number 1

Fiona Whitehead said...

Christine said...

Great cosy creative workspace, must be heaven to be surrounded by all your goodies :-)

karen said...

Your space looks so creative and cozy! What a big stack of CuttleBug folders you have! Good for you to make it to everyone's desks! I keep trying but always run out of time.

oneoff said...

Love the thought of being surrounded by all that working space.

butlersabroad said...

I love that you pen yourself in with more surfaces! You do have a lot of embossing folders!

Elizabeth said...

Gosh, it's like a wee crafting nest or perhaps a crafting cocoon - it looks as though you've got it all within touching distance and a great use of the little TV table when using the Cuttlebug - I never thought of that. Congratulations on getting up early enough to be first and thanks for letting us see your workroom. Elizabeth x #96

MaggieC said...

What a great use of space, surrounding yourself like that. Everything is close at hand and ready to grab. Thank you for sharing it with us.

Wipso said...

Kerry said...

I seem to get more accomplished when I have more than 1 surface to utilize :)
I am lucky if I can get a 1/2 way through the whole list. But I am working on it lol
Happy WOYWW :)

Sam said...

Great desk. One question though - where does the wineglass fit in? LOl!! Sam # 131

S said...

Obviously you are dedicated to visit everyone's site again. I'm still catching up on last week's visitors. Thanks for dropping by.

Nicky said...

Wow I have heard of surround sound but thats the first surround crafting I have seen - thanks for sharing ~ Nicky 12

okienurse said...

Very nice! I usually end up piling stuff up all over my craft room so I can keep it in close proximity to me. I have all sorts of drawers cabinets etc and when I am done they are all empty and they stuff is scattered all over the room. Really sad. Takes me two days to pick up and put away!!

olive said...

congrats being No 1. Instead of surround sound its surround crafting. Thanks for letting us visit.
Hugs Olive xx

Starla said...

HOLY COW!! That's my problem! I need more surfaces to spread my stuff around on!! I like your little "cave" you've created

Susan ~ Killam Creative said...

Wow - how great to have everything at your fingertips! I'm impressed that you got to everyone - I forgot where I stopped last week. Ha!

Thanks for the peek!

Cheers,
Susan

love your around the chair craft area

voodoo vixen said...

Ummmm, can it get a bit claustrophobic surrounded like that? and Marjo, you have waaaaay too many Cuttlebug folders!! Lots of lovely stuff to peek into on your desks!! Annette #4

Neet said...

Love your desk - do you close yourself in so nobody can disturb you? I always end up working in a tiny space so your set up is ideal. Love it! #17

Sue from Oregon said...

Love that U shaped work area...that is my plan eventually. I like to have everything right at hand!

Thistleblue said...

Fantastic workspace and looks like you have loads of bug folders. Grats on getting round everyone last week. Have a great WOYWW!

I'm going to try that cardboard idea with my next plates.....I've already ruined the current ones! Now I know.... *smile*. I like the idea of being surrounded by workspaces..... I hope you have a swivel chair!
Thx for visiting me!

madebyKarla said...

Love your workspace and those little plastic storage boxes. I've been thinking of getting another surface to work on multiple projects at once. I like your space, it's cozy!

Jinny Holt said...

Great work space,everything at your finger tips!

Likey likey!

Thanks for blogging by and thanks for your comment x

Spyder said...

I was here honest! But no comment box and no picture, and if I'd said what a lovely pink crafty space you'd think I was colour blind! You're right, word verification is a bummer, coz sometimes I say my bit and go...not realising the codey thing is waiting for me to type it in...and I don't! Great space you have. Love little boxes with little draws. I use card with my bigshot, helps with the embossing when using Nesties...and most times itdoesn't cut through so my card board bits get quite a lot of use.
Happy Late WOYWW

peggy aplSEEDS said...

i really like your L shaped desk! wonderful to have all that space at an arms reach!

peggy aplSEEDS said...

and i'm with you on the word verification, it's so much easier to make comments without it!

peggy aplSEEDS said...

so i'll make another comment just because you don't have word verification on! i'm so impressed that you visited so many desks. are you visiting the one world one heart blogs as well?

Priyanka said...

Love your space!! I wish I had all that surface space to put my stuff on!

Ciara said...

Do you get airlifted onto your stool?!!! Maybe you have a spring board or something?!! tee hee

DanielleP said...

Tis is the first time I've joined in the WOYWW. Your space looks great...lots of room and lots of things close by. I signed up to in the drawing for your blog candy, but I don't know how to put something on my sidebar. I'm lucky I can remember how to post a pic on my own blog! lol DanielleP
