What's On Your Workspace Wednesday 67

Apparently I thrive in tight spaces! It doesn't mean that I wouldn't love long, lovely work counters like the scrapbook celebrities have, it just means that I have to deal with it. Occasionally, if you were here, you'd hear me grumbling under my breath when some obstacle on the floor has caused me to tilt dangerously into the closet door frame. I continue to surprise myself with the odd placement of craft things on the floor! lol

Last week, I showed you the table after I'd made my card and you had to look into the past (post) to see it. This week, I'm showing you the table before I finished the card and you're going to have to look into the future for it. (I love sci-fi, hee hee.) What I mean is, I'm holding the card to post it on Friday as part of the Unity Friends with Flair blog hop. Sorry for the tease but I have a busy couple of days ahead and I had to make my card today. Hope you stop by on Friday to see the result.

Hmmm....any table notes of interest? The Color Coach is from Stampin Up. It's a new card file that helps match their colors specifically but works on a basic level, too. Lots of bling on board today. I wanted to choose just the right bling for the little lady featured on my card. The lush brown ribbon group appeared out of the bling bin I have on the floor and it only reinforces my belief in serendipity. I never would have gone looking for it if it hadn't shown up of its accord. Oh, and in the top right corner, you'll see a small Copic Swatch book. I got it at iCopic and it comes with pages categorized by color family but it's filled with blank squares so that you can color in the markers you have (as you accumulate them.)

The remote was tempting me today because it was craft day on HSN. I tried watching while working but if I'm trying to focus on measuring, etc. I just can't. So I taped the shows for another time. The grand master of grunge, Tim Holtz, was on a couple of segments. I can't wait to get back to watching him do his distressing thing. By the way, for those of you in the UK, I just heard that Tim is COMING to YOU soon for a special event. Go to his website and click on "blog" if you're interested in finding out more about that!

That's it for today. Have a great WOYWW!

Cindy, I had to change your link in my browser. You had two "e"s in "the." I can see a LOT going on with your desk this week. I think the first thing I saw was that little X sticker maker. Of all the crafty goodness on your desk, it's amazing that is what caught my eye first. Happy WOYWW.

The Colour Coach sounds interesting and your papers are beautiful. Your desk looks so creative today and just goes to prove that size really doesn't matter!

It looks like you have everything you need at your fingertips! You make some amazing cards with such a small space available - it's awesome. I like that your desk has recessed areas for things. And the bling, Tim Holtz and Stampin' Up! stuff you have ROCKS.
