Whats on your workdesk? Wednesday 68

This is my first WOYWW post.
The photo I've taken tonight was after a BIG clear up so I'm not normally this tidy.
I don't have a craft room, its on my wish list along with so many other things.
I use our dining table and store my stuff on my lovely bookshelves.
Mike works 5 days a week 3pm til midnight so we don't get a chance to eat at the table so my stuff can stay there permanently
The sloping desk was made by my lovely Dad so that when I'm colouring I'm not bending forward very much and therefore easing my back.
On my desk are my latest tiddly inks that I bought last night and my lovely FIL printed for me tonight and even delivered them to me in the rain!  We only live 3 streets away for Mikes family.

The stuff hanging from my desk are actually cutlery racks that Dad has fixed to the side of my desk. They were about £3 each and with one of the dividers snipped out are the perfect size for embossing folders and peeloffs.

The top shelf holds my big shot and my cinch. Under that is my storage chest that i store my promarkers.  The next shelf down has all sorts inc my purple box of punches,.  And finally the bottom shelf has my 12x12 papers and my purple box of stamps.

Today has been my first class at the gym.  Me & Mum went to zumba.  An exercise class to Latin music.  It was fun and we've booked again for next week.  I'm off there again in the morning to do an aqua aerobics class.
I can't always do the movements the rest are doing and I do sometimes miss whole sections out but at least I'm exercising.


Mum & Dad have paid for me to go to onto Introduction to copic ciao class in November as my Christmas present.
I'm really excited about it as I love to colour, I find it so relaxing.
Thats it for now,thanks for stopping by,

Thanks for sharing Hugs Candace #43

Welcome to WOYWW. You will love it here. It's great that your dad made you that sloping desk. Sort of like a drafting table, only smaller. Sounds like he's pretty handy and special, if he and your mom got you a class on copics. I have none, so I could never make anything using them.

Sorry I'm really, really late this week, especially since I'm #2. The only excuse I have is life and company got in the way. And of course blogger hated me on Wednesday. And to make things even WORSE is my verification word is LOSER!

What a fab Christmas gift - you'll love the class and then - you'll have 200 Copics on your wish list as well! Welcome to WOYWW, am fascinated by your cutlery rack explanation - can we have a full on view? Please!?


Lovely blog and a sweet little corner of your world! I also became a follower:) Happy WOYWW even though I am late.


i enjoyed that snoop. You will have fun with Copics.

What a lovely and supportive family you have - fantastic. The sloped desk is an excellent tip - I've gone down the promarkers route but I'm sure it still applies :)


Great to see your fab space and clever ideas!


Great storage ideas there. Enjoy your pressie.

Cutlery racks, what a good idea!
Enjoy your Copics course.

That's so well organised, and the drawing slope is a great idea. Please let us know all about the Copics course; I am getting addicted to colouring at the moment and would love to know what they are teaching.
