WOYWW 235 ...Messy Desk Alert!

Work soon so a quick post again this morning before work. I had to change my days off work at the last minute this week,which means I've just had the last two days off work...unplanned...but on a positive note it has given me the opportunity to get some Christmas shopping done and make a start on my Christmas tags...(I seem to get so much more done when off on a week day)...I've made quite a few tags already and unlike last years the majority are much more simple design and I'm having fun in the process. My desk looks like a bomb has hit warned it is unrecognisable as mine!

mess in action !
I dont usually leave everything out but as I'm popping in and out and the tags are quick and easy to make it makes sense to leave everything I need to hand(I didn't realise just how many christmas stamps I have!)...You would think making something so small as a tag would create less mess!...but I guess that's work in progress for you !

The rest of the desk !

Why am I showing you my desk you ask?...its What's on Your Work Day Wednesday of course...hop over to Julia's at the Stamping Ground to take part.Share what's on your workdesk each week and best of all get to snoop on everyone else...once you start you wont want to miss it. As usual off to get ready for work soon and I will be back later today to visit everyone...hopefully I will do better than last week; it was the weekend in some cases before I visited WOYWWers
I hope you have a  great day and week ahead... thanks for visiting...lots of crafty hugs Andrea X

other side-no escaping the mess !

Some finished tags :-)

  3. Welcome to the time of year where mess is the name of the game! Love all you have on offer to see today. Great tags and I love the way you "factory line" like I do when stamping, colouring and die cutting. #35

  4. lovely colourful desk, fab tags, thanks for sharing Donna #47

  5. What a great desk this week! I think all the activity looks wonderful and how satisfying to have that wonderful box of tags to show for it!!! Julie Ann xx #52

  6. Oh Andrea they are so very cute your tags and stamps - and yes think small things make as big mess as larger things!! happy WOYWW Shaz in oz.x #10

  7. Lovely tags. We think your desk looks busy rather than messy, that sounds so much better, that's what we tell ourselves when our desk gets loaded up!

  11. I've made some tags for the first time this year, but nothing as intricate as yours! Christmas stamps- say no more. I can't believe how many I have, for heavens sake, it only happens once a year! Silly thing is, I find I don't have a very good range of Christmas sentiments- a few Merry/Happy Christmas, a couple of Seasons Greetings, but all about the same size/style. I shall have to rectify that, I think. Have a great week,. Hugs, Shaz #57 xx

  12. Lovely tags. I know what you mean about the stamps - they sneak up on you don't they?! #49

  13. I have to say this is the untidiest I have ever seen your desk Andrea, still not a patch on mine though. Your completed tags look fabulous.

  14. Hi again Andrea - thanks for the visit :-) In answer to your question - on the red/green stripey card... that is a Snowflake corner cut file from SILHOUETTE which I cut on my machine :-D

  15. The tags look fabulous, and your desk looks so much tidier than mine ever does..!! Helen 37

  16. Yeah, maybe a mess for you, but it looks very controlled from here! love the selection of tags. It's very satisfying to have such a great selection to choose from.

  17. What mess? Just looks like a busy space to me... The tags are lovely - they will look great on the presents.
    Have a great week.
