This is my first post for "What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday". I found this blog last Thursday and spent a couple evenings looking at ALL the links. I just loved seeing the areas that the ladies all used to create. I also felt very happy that I was not the only one that did not have that perfect tidy work space that I always seem to come across at SCS or on YouTube. I don't know if I could function in that much organization; I think the stress to keep it neat would be overwhelming. LOL
So here is my workdesk for Wednesday, December 22, 2010. The actual tiny workspace currently has paper, pads and stamps for SCS sketch challenge. I set it out last night before I went to bed. If you would like to know a bit more about this chaos, I'll have more write up after the pictures.

The Long Shot:
So I think it's pretty obvious this is my kitchen. The sad part is that I do have an entire craftroom but it's completely unusable. Here is my excuse for using the kitchen.
Last year in late November I began the project from hell called Remodeling. This was a full gutting remodel that should have only taken two months, three on the outside. So instead of packing everything up and sending it off to storage, I used my office, craftroom and garage (even some of the master bedroom) to house all the displaced household goods. Unfortunately, the project did not finish until late May. MAY!!! Because I work full-time (and then some) I don't have a lot of time during the week to do normal chores, let alone special projects. It took me until early August just to get the kitchen, dining room and living rooms back in order. Since then, I've had no time (or even the will) to address my seriously abused and cluttered office and craft room. Somehow while all the household junk was stored in the office and craftroom, it multiplied. I swear I have put everything away, but there are still boxes filled with junk in both those rooms. Can you hear the whine in my voice? Pathetic, isn't it?
To add to this problem, do you think I stopped buying supplies, stamp sets, DP or anything while the remodel was in progress? Oh H-E-Double-hockey-sticks NO!!
So .... if I want to craft, I have to go digging in that craft room to find what I want (and most times I don't find it); or go digging through the boxes of new stuff that's just tossed in the craftroom ..... then I work in the kitchen or dining room.
So that is my lame, very lame excuse for using my brand spanking new, gorgeous kitchen as a craftroom. Good thing I live alone; I imagine if I had anyone living here they'd be very unhappy with half the kitchen always covered in paper, ink pads, ribbon, bling ................
