What's on your Workdesk Wednesday

It is my 3rd week taking part in Julia's WOYWW. My desk is tidy again this week. I made a DT card last night and had to tidy as my desk was just unmanageable and I want to make some bits and pieces today. I don't know about you but I find it much easier to start a new Project when my desk is clear if I don't really know what I am going to make. Other times when I have an idea that has been buzzing around in my head the whole day I will work on top of 3 or 4 days mess, moving on to the floor if I run out of room or just can't push the leftovers far back enough anymore!

So the desk is quite tidy today. I have a new lamp since last Wednesday. The daylight bulb in my desk lamp had blown to I bought a real daylight lamp that was on offer at Hobbycraft. Makes a real difference with the dark nights returning and also makes the photos much easier to take without a flash.
There is a little matchbox on the basket my lamp is on that is for a matchbox swap on the Magical Crafts forum. I am so excited to be taking part in this swap as I had so much fun making and filling mine.
In front of the basket are some of my new ribbons and linen thread I treated myself to yesterday.
Lurking on my scissor pot is my 1st DT card for the Cook up a Card recipe Challenge blog.
My nesties are on the desk as I bought some magnetic tape yesterday, hoping to tidy them up into some kind of folder. As you can see my pegs are still firmly in the basket and have not yet worked their magic on my box of ribbons...
There is a copy of Papercraft inspirations on my desk today, I bought it yesterday from Sainsbury's as it had a free copy of Docrafts magazine with it, I always buy Docrafts magazine so it was quite handy to get a free copy with a lovely Forever Friends stamp on it.
Am off now to Basildon Park for walkies with the Puppy and the kiddies, the sun is hiding at the moment so let's hope it puts in an appearance soon!
Why not join in the fun and show us what is on your Workdesk today? Post it on your blog and link it up to Julia's post so we can all have a peek!
Hope to see you there!

  6. I think I may have to invest in a daylight lamp - my house is so dark even in the summer, most piccies are taken on the floor by my back door and I just have to hope the mutts don't walk in with muddy paws mid photo :D :D Do you mind me asking how much yours was?

    I dithered about those hanging buckets in Ikea last week - OH couldn't see how they would work on my desk, will have to show him yours ;)
