What's on Your workdesk Wednesday?




Look how beautifully tidy it all was on Monday.I was in 'back-to-school' mode (it doesn't last long after term starts so I have to capitalise on it) and I had got sick of not being able to find the papers I want so I colour- coded them. I couldn't believe how many sheets of cardstock I had hidden at the bottom of the drawer! Time to get creating to use them up!

Today, you can see the makings of a couple of cards. I cut the pockets off a pair of my daughter's tiny baby jeans. I think they will work brilliantly to hide a jewellery gift in for a postal present.
There is also a commissioned choker set which I am boxing up to deliver later today.
Have a good snoop!

Oh how nice to see it all spread ut and sorted though Kirsty, even ifyou did have a shock at the amount. Now you have to divide timebetween paper and jewellery! Love the set you're packing up.

Great scraps there. I have colour co-ordinated my card blanks but not my paper (what a nightmare thought... but a good one)

I think color coding your papers is a very good idea - I have a drawer of DPs that needs sorting! Love your choker!

You have a lot on your plate. I color code my papers, too. I don't get many scrapbook papers, but I make a lot of my own using white card stock, so color coding is always the best way to go for me.

That choker is adorable, and so is that jeans pocket. Can't wait to see the finished project.

Have a fun and productive WOYWW.
