I promised myself tonight that I will keep my desk clean, clear up after each crafting session & clean my stamps… (in theory) 😉

  1. Your desk looks brilliant – inviting you to get in there and make it messy again. Good luck with the resolution:) Love the card – your bit bag must be just about empty now! And, finally, sympathy for your hubby – I think that is what detergent does in an empty machine when there is no fabric to soak the suds up – I’ve done it myself:( Regards, Elizabeth

    1. Hi Elizabeth…

      I love having a nice clean and tidy desk 🙂 and your absolutely right, its inviting me to mess it all up again lol

      My bit bag, looks like i’ve never toughed it!! it is still overflowing, i’m now wondering if I will ever make a dent in it 🙂

      There was that much foam, that the kids could have had a foam party 🙂

    1. Thanks Valerie… and its true!!! I made another mess last night, but I stayed true to my word and cleaned it all up after i’d finished… wonder how long that will last 😉

  2. Aren’t HUSBANDS handy. A lot of them have no idea what to do, when it comes to cleaning the house. Your craftroom looks great

    1. Hi Noaleen,

      Thanks so much for the lovely comments, and I totally agree about the handy husband on house cleaning duties 😉 it was like a foam party in my kitchen lol

  3. Yay, a nice tidy desk. Do ya feel like coming over and cleaning mine?! =P

    1. Hi Laura,

      Thanks for the lovely comments, I actually love cleaning my craft desk, it’s amazing what you find lol… i’ll be over later to do yours 😉

  4. love the butterfly card …. hmmm sus about the bubble thing with hubby , if hes any thing like mine he would do that so he didnt get asked to do it again … like mine who tried hand at ironing … i herd him laughting to mate … i put more creases in … so she would think i was useless and not ask me to do it

    1. Thanks Nancy… I do love a clean crafty workspace, I love how this little butterfly card turned out too, it was just a prototype, not perfect, but now that I know how it turned out I can perfect it 🙂
