Hi there ive been meaning to take part in WOYWDW over at The Stamping Ground for ages now so ive just been upstairs to take a few pics there isnt much on my desk as i actually cleaned up yesterday after i had been creating which isnt like me lol anyway like i said there isnt much on my desk its whats under it that will make you laugh.

Meet lucy dog lol this is where Lucy lives when im crafting and its a pain but she wont budge but at least in winter she keeps my feet warm lol. So what is on my desk well theres my MP3 player i plug these in me ears while im crafting turn up the volume and away i go the only problem being is i tend to sing along out of key and very loud which dosnt impress Lucy or my Husband very much lol. The card on my desk is what a lovely little girl called Alex sent me so its got pride of place on my desk. The image is all coloured and layerd up and ready to go its for a DT project but every time i try nothing looks right so maybe tomorrow i say lol.

Heres another pic its of the shelves over my desk.

I so need to try and organise these shelves they look awful just stuff piled on lol. Oh and excuse the state of the wall infront of my desk its full of bluetac from where all the cards my friends have sent me they now live on a cork board anyway im hopfully having my room decorated soon and more shelves and storage added fingers crossed.

Well thanks for looking.
