Whats on your Workdesk, Wednesday?

Oh Oh My...what a mess my room was this morning - all the drawers open, bags of ribbon on the floor, piles of papers, a big mess of trimmed papers next to my guillotine, dies needing to be put away, also stamps just a mess - so I promised myself no stamping till it was cleaned up.  
Well I must be sick or something - hormones are raging maybe because I did a mighty clean, even vacuumed; that spilled out into the rest of the house and not to finish there I cleaned the toilet, and bathroom.
You may be wondering why I'm raving on about all this....well I love being part of Julia's What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday - WOYWW #244, so pop over to her blog to see all the other crafty spaces.
On my clean desk you can see two cards I'm working on at present and you might notice two white daisies next to the card on the right...well there's supposed to be three...mmm those darn pixies have been on my desk again and it's disappeared...I haven't found it yet even checked the bin.
I've finished and posted my cards and now I'll post this and pop over to Julia's to check out other crafty spaces.
Thanks for taking a peek Robyn 

I even tidied in the cupboard where my stamps are filed away in the drawers and those folders on the shelf.


  1. WOW that is so impressive a messy room then a clean one, that is amazing and you even have an apple for the work LOL Now to mess it up again. Have a great week and happy crafting.

    Hugs Eliza & Yoda 12

  4. It's ours so impressive to see things in a mess and then cleaned up. Sometimes people don't understand how we work. Isn't it great to have the space to spread out and do what we need. Peg R 25

  5. Hi there.
    Thanks for sharing your work place with us nosy peeps. It's great to see what you are up to. It's an impressive craft space you have.
    Take care.

  6. Wow, that clean up is impressive. If you still have some energy you can come and do mine, it's a total mess. Your cards are really pretty.
    Have a great week,

  7. LOL! As much as I hate the IDEA of having to clean up I ALWAYS enjoy working in a clean space - until I go looking for hat thing that has lived in that one special place for 10 years, and then got moved and now I have NO IDEA where I decided it should live for the next 10 years.... DOH! Looking clan and lovely....
    Getting an early start for a change....
    Happy WOYWW Day!

  8. What a lovely bright crafty space you have and I love the before and after photos. What a transformation. Enjoying messing it all up again!!
    Hugs Lisax #54

  9. Wow...I'm impressed from chaos to calm and creative. Good work. Carole #76

  10. Great space! Seems like several of us have the tidying up bug. I've been doing it as well. Not that you can see in my photos :-) but have been concentrating on other areas of house. Happy WOYWW Anne x #63

  11. Good grief, that's a night and day difference right there! You can come and clean my house anytime you like! I think I'd rather cope with snow than cyclones tbh, I can stay at home if the weather is really bad, but you're a bit helpless in a cyclone!

  12. I cleaned bathrooms and floors yesterday too! I just love a good before and after picture, not to mention seeing someone's desk in Australia. I so wish you had a Michaels--I probably go there at least once a week. Unless I absolutely make myself stay away for a week. Hugs! Sandy Leigh #18

  13. The secret is out! That is why you were cleaning! You were looking for that third daisy! I am not sure if you thought you would find it in the tiolet, but anyway... That is why I usually end up cleaning! I am looking for something! LOL But everything looks great! Happy WOYWW and thanks for your earlier visit. # 27

  14. What a lovely big, bright room and it looks even better cleaned up!
    Is the daisy still in hiding?

  15. love your room - and what a workout you must have got doing all that cleaning!! Helen 7

  16. I am so impressed with all that tidying, even going into the rest of the house. That is going above and beyond the call of tidying. My room is gradually emerging from the disaster area it had become. Mind you, with the weather we have over here at the moment, even tidying is more fun. The stamps are nearly finished, stencils and masks done. Next is the ink pads, not so many of those. I even have half a floor. Hope you get some crafting done amongst all the tidying. xx Maggie #3

  17. Well Robin, whatever you've been struck with, I could do with a dose myself...wish I could get around to sorting and cleaning as I go! your space looks just fab! I love the orangey card on top too...and as for the daisy..I suspect it's a gonner!

  18. i formally invite you to come and clean my room (and toilet if you want). what a fabulous job you did. it looks amazing

  19. Well done with all that tidying! You have such a lovely light room too. #46

  20. omg that is one massive transformation. I was beginning to wonder where it had all gone until I saw the last picture ... well done I hope you get it messy again soon

  21. You have a very comfortable looking craft room, just the sort to come and have a play in! Put the kettle on, I'll be round in five minutes and we can do some sewing together, lol!!
    Hugs, LLJ 33 xx

  22. Love the before and afters, nice job!

    I always take advantage of a mood to clean because I never know how long it will last and it may be months before another one strikes. :-)

    Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier and for the nice comments.

    Happy Woyww,

    Sandy #2

  23. Thanks for swinging by earlier Robyn. Love the transformation in your room and the fact that your cleaning spread throughout the house :) Sometimes it just has to be done! Cx #38

  24. You so made me laugh when I saw your reply this morning that you went and brought a mug tree YAY!!.. I have 2 the other one is on the left it has my big rolls of twine and some washi on it.. They are the best things for keeping things up off your desk. Will look forward to seeing it on your desk next week.. Great job on the tidy up..
    Sandy :)

  25. Very nice. Love the before and after. And you even vacuumed - you go girl! :-) Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier. April #24

  26. Hope you feel better for that massive clean up operations. Your room certainly does.
    Now, how long before it gets messed up again - never takes me long.
    Thanks for the visit earlier.
    Hugs, Neet xx 22

  27. That is quite the drastic change of your room! Good job! Thanks for visiting and happy belated WOYWW!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog...I love your storage for your stamps, very organised....not sure about the healthy apple though lol.

  29. You did clean everything! I am in awe of such work ethic!
    Those pixies visited me too! I lost an 'e' that I cut with my Silhouette and only after I cut a new one did they bring the old one back. LOL
    Happy WOYWW!
