I haven't joined in with WOYWW for the longest time, I just didn't feel that I could carry on showing you my messy depressing desk that never seemed to change. I have continued to work in a small clear spot about 6"x6" while all around me chaos reigned.
I know this probably doesn't look like an improvement - but it is. First of all I there is my decorated carousel, I showed you the plain white carousel and started painting it - but then I didn't have time to finish it or maybe the room. It ended up on the floor as a trip hazard and the floor ended up with it's own 6"x6" spot in front of the desk one!
Well enough is enough, I have had loads of surplus stash I have been trying to sell for ages in various places. I sort of gave up on it. Then I realised that I just have to try and get rid of it at low low prices - it would be better to have a little for it and the space than to try and hold out for something more, even if that something more was way lower than I paid for it!
So tomorrow I am starting a facebook event and will post simultaneously on a page on my blog and I really hope to shift the tip of the stashberg! I would even consider swapping for something I wanted.Once that has shifted I can sort out some more stash to go, I might be able to let a whole heap more go to better homes as I haven't used a great deal of it. The problem is that I still keep buying more (I am trying to control myself, but it still happens) and winning - I recently won Gayle's fabby candy, Prima doll stamps and pink pearls, pink bits and pieces and my first ever Distress glitter - in pink! Thank you Gayle.
I am even giving some away in my blog candy post pinned to the top - go check it out!
The problem is that the stashberg and the new stash not yet safely stashed is causing a major block to my creativity. The shift in perspective came about after I watched a long video tour of Tassy's newly organised craft room. This was followed by my decision to let the tip of the stashberg float away - requiring some more photos. I wanted my metal ruler to show the size of things, couldn't find it so turned everything upside down on my desk to find it - still haven't yet! While shifting the stashberg around I happened to pick up the carousel and put it in a newly created space on the desk, thinking I could finish this off and get it full of stash on the desk.
Well I went to bed last night with all this going round in my head I guess, and - just couldn't sleep! So I got up again and started stencilling the carousel, and I have done loads but I think I will do more yet. I am going to post the detailed photos in the next post - only because I spotted one challenge I can enter with it.
So this is a bit rambling, and the corner of the desk indicates the tip that the rest looks like - but it has to get worse to get better - right?
Well if you want to go nosy at some other workspaces mosey on over to The Stamping Ground and maybe join in too!
