As Seen - a tidy desk

I was going to go shopping I might have even popped into town, but when I put my nose outside it nearly froze on my face, well that is a bit of an exaggeration but boy it is very very cold today. So instead I have been trying to tackle the mess in my craftroom. I didn't want to just do a surface job, that is my usual way, no I wanted a deep down clearance and that is going to take a long while. Still I have managed to do one desk. Cleared out all the shelves, got rid of old old old stuff that has been there since Noah was a lad.

and before I started

why oh why did I still have old zip discs that can not be played on any computer that I possess? cases may come in handy though. Why did I still have 5 SM cards that fitted the first digital camera I had umperty ump years ago? Why did I still have an old computer drive from way back, goodness knows but I don't have them any longer. As you can see though I still haven't managed to tackle the other desk and I have had enough for today. After that desk I will have to sort out papers/cardstock/embellishments/ etc etc etc. that is going to be the biggest job and I can see it taking several weeks.

Today I am grateful that I didn't have to go out.
that I have made a start on something that has been bugging me for a long while.

God never would send you the darkness
If He felt you could bear the light
But you would not cling to His guiding hand
If the way were always bright;
And you would not care to walk by faith
Could you always walk by sight

Gosh Mary that is a big difference, well done on such a good sort out.
Keep it up you are doing a great job.

Lovely poem Mary - very thought-provoking.

You certainly worked hard at that desk - it looks lovely and I'm sure it'll be a pleasure to work there now. There's something very comfortable about sitting down to a tidy and organised workspace!

Hope you're keeping warm. X

A place for me to put the pictures of layouts I have done that I am pleased with, to put in the poems I write and to add snippets of things that have caught my eye
