WOYWW? Not a lot...

I'm Home!! (not sure how long for, so I'll type very quickly!!) Just in time for another What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday... hosted by the one and only Julia and Stamping Ground.
At last I can show you my work bench. I spend a few hours pushing back (out of camera shot) all the craftymess that had been sprawled across my whole craft room since Christmas. It's surprising how much can accumulate even when you're not I'll blame it all on the cat, we call Jinksy, who, in spite of us being away, still called in and on some occasions spent the night! (and left one headless mouse... but I won't mention that!) Unlike sis-in-laws cats, (from last week) Jinksy has learnt very quickly that Lyn doesn't like cats on tables or kitchen work surfaces, so I'll let him off the mouse...just this once!
So, on my bench at Midnight (!!!) is a small plastic basket filled with 6x6 Papers that need to go in their 6x6 draw. A large box of Promarkers, which need sorting into their colours, I really can't find the colours I want, heaped in a box like that ... Christmas stamps that still need cleaning and Nesties that need putting away so they don't get thrown away by mistake! So if you want to show the World What's On Your Workdesk this know where to go!
Thanks for calling by.

  5. Glad your home for now. I can see you definately need to arrange them promarkers, that would literally drive me mad! I also have quite a few dies out and about at the mo, must put them away, as you say they are easy to just bundle up with scraps and throw away! x

  11. Looks fab, cute cat. Thanks for sharing & enjoy this WOYWW, I'm off to be nosey, & peek at some more desks! Zo x 83, well I was when last looked, it keeps changing!

  12. Wee Jinksy looks lovely and comfy and cute and his kill (lol) a fantastic desk, so inviting lots of goodies, Have a great week Hugs May x x x

  13. What a lot of sorting you have to do ...I hate that part ...thats why I'm so untidy. That cat is so like our Sayba but she is a toally indoor cat. Strange name you might think ...yes ... we thought she was a boy and called her Saber.

  14. Hi Lynn, nice to see your home are you staying long lol, and what a fab crafting space you have.

  15. We've trained our cats - they don't jump up on surfaces, scratch the curtains/furniture or attack the Christmas tree! So well done to your Jinksy for being a good moggy too :)
    Hugs, LLJ #56 xx

  16. Nice that you are home! Bet it feels good.

    You just need a few minutes in there and it will be right as rain and then you can mess it up creating again! teehee

  17. Ah, the terrible "putting away of things" that comes after playing. So tedious. I don't envy you!
    Happy WOYWW!

  18. Know the feeling hopefully you will get it to how you want it!

  19. Love the shelves and the size of your desk!

    Thank you for sharing. :)

  20. Hi there. Thanks for letting us peek into your world this lovely Wednesday. I hope you have a creative and blessed week.

  21. Welcome home. Aww, your cat loves you so much he brings you gifts. That's so very sweet!!!

    Happy WOYWW

  22. Sounds like you have had a visit from the Craftlings in your room. I bet you are glad to be back home and in your own bed.
    Enjoy yourself!
    Hugs xx

  23. I do so love your desk. And your cute cat. And you're right-- we just won't mention the headless mouse.

  24. Wow! lots of things need doing on your desk, but I love the craftymess anyway!!! Patsy from

  25. Great desk, lots of lovely goodies on there, what a nice gift to come home to, Jinxy is probably hoping you won't go away again :0) Happy Crafting, Sue xx

  26. Very neat setup you have there. Yes I always blame my mess on the cats...they don't seem to mind:)

  27. Great space...and cute kitty although I would also pass on the headless mouse. dani13

  28. Welcome home! I'm with you about the cats on surfaces, and about putting nasties away before they get thrown away...they probably are the one thing that I do use and put away immediately! Hope you're enjoying some crafty time now you're back.

  29. mad morti has the box you need tor your pens Lyn, the pills you popped were definitely green with pink dots, now I'm off to add to the scrap eyeball pond in the sky...welcome home


  30. Oh i want to come and play all those lovely crafty goodies, cute cat even with the presents, I didn’t make it, to everyone’s crafty space on Wednesday so doing my snooping today,
    Hope you have a great week x Lou x @#103

  31. Aaaaw, he doesn't look like he would harm a fly let alone behead a mouse all curled up there!! LOL Another desk with Christmas stamps on it... hmmm, is this late for putting away or early C card making?

  32. i like how you have all that inspiration on the wall above your work space.

  33. My Promarkers are lumped together in one drawer but banded together in colourways so that I can take a pick easier. Just a thought if you are short of room.
    Love Jinxy!
    Thanks so much for sharing - Hugs, Neet 195 (very late this week)xx

  34. Your cat looks like I want to feel - cosy and able to wake up in a crafty heaven! Thanks for letting us look in and peek at your desk... Sarah at 7

  35. Well Lyn, that's what I call a craft desk - good on ya, it's marvellous!!

    Ooh I love Jinksy, he looks just like a cat we once had. I think tabby cats are much more affectionate than other kinds (except to headless mice that is!!)

    Thanks for already stopping by my desk this week :)

    Sherry (8)

  36. Wow, your workspace is amazing!

  37. love your crafty desk! Glad you are home and sorry for your losses. headless mouse...yuk! Sorry I am so late getting around but it was such a busy week in my life!
    Just a reminder about the blog candy...I have had such a favorable response that I have decided to increase the number of possible winners of prizes! Everyone is eligible cause I will ship overseas too! Vickie #50

  38. Hello Lyn, I'm a tad to late to say welcome home, you'll be well settled in again by now :) That cat looks as though she is also well settled in. I have to keep my markers sorted too otherwise I can't find what I'm looking for. Now I wonder what number we are going to be this week ... I suspect I'm going to be later this week but no worries, I don't mind at all. Elizabeth x #2
