WOYWW 225 - Progress Made!

Hello peeps!  Welcome to WOYWW (What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday).  For those of you that don't know about WOYWW it's the brainchild of Julia at Stamping Ground.  Thanks to her we get to visit desks from all over the world.  People share what they are working on and what their desks look like.  

I made some progress in organizing my supplies.  I put in another one of the cd shelving units.  They are perfect for this closet; they are narrower than regular bookshelves. 

Here's the before photo:
I've made some progress.  I'm taking my time and not just throwing things back in.  
As a bonus, here's the living room (staging area).  
As always, I will visit those that end in the same number as me and those that visit me.  I think I was successful in doing this last week; if I missed you, I'm sorry.  It may not be until the weekend before I get around to you but I promise I will!

Peace,
Kay

It must be my inner OCD but I really love seeing all your supplies neatly organised on your shelves like that!! I think the very act of sorting is therapeutic too....I love doing that!
Hope you are well, Kay,

Hi there Kay! So who's been a busy bee tidying up and organising huh? Looks super - and so much more inspiring for you to be able to see all those goodies laid out just waiting to be played with.

Happy WOYWW my friend!

Hugs, Di xx

The new shelves are looking really good. I like a bit of organisation in my workspace, as long as there is still space on the table to make a mess! Kate x #57

Beautiful organisation that appeals to my neat freak nature! Just think of all the creativity that will lead to! Have a great day! Victoria no.64

Neet said...

What a make-over! That truly is one heck of a difference and I am sure you will enjoy the benefits of it. Mind you, as a crafter how long it lasts is the test of time. Mine is a "tip" again and needs a serious tidy up.
Hugs, Neet 11 xx

Glenda Brooks said...

All of your organizing is paying off. It all looks so neat and clean. I could use some time to straighten my mess!

Anne said...

Hi Kay it's looking good. I do like that suitcase style box I can see in the shot of your living room :-) I just like boxes!!! My DH despairs :-) Happy WOYWW Anne x #56

Love your organising. I have a blitz on my cupboards once in a while, but it's always a mess again days later lol.

Oh always fun to organize, then to try to remember where it is once again. Labeling saved me! Great fallish weather, birds flying south, so have to enjoy the outdoors before the winter sets in. Hate giving up my outdoor walking. Enjoy the week Happy WOYWW

Hi Kay I always think of re organising as a necessary evil but usually worth while. Love the little suitcase. Enjoy your tidying

Brilliant progress there - fancy a time in North Wales when you have done yours?? My area is a right mess at the moment - and would love some help...
Have a great week.

Everyone seems to be organising this week. Love your new storage, Kay. I find narrow bookcases and CD storage work brilliantly when space is tight too. It's amazing what you can get in them isn't it?
Happy WOYWW

CD racks in place of regular book shelves is a great idea for a small space! I love seeing how things come together like this, how sad is that! I actually enjoy cleaning up and rearranging too, lol! No champagne in the OJ for me, those little decorations I'm making required sharp scissors and a scalpel/craft knife, so not a good mix, lol!

I love those CD shelves and worry that Ipods and the like will make them obsolete! They are good for paperback books too, you know, my first love was way too many books. I think you are doing the right thing by taking it slow and steady with your reorganization. I think you'll be happier in the end. I love your staging area and that you called it a staging area and not a disaster area. ;-)

Caro said...

That is some impressive tidying! Well done you. Thanks for sharing. Happy WOYWW. Caro x (#68)

Julia Dunnit said...

I know I don't give the appearance of being so, but organised supplies is so good for you!M ales one fell heaps better! I like the little suitcase box very much...almost as much as I like the warm and pretty rug..!

Lea.H said...

Wow, your new storage unit is looking very organised :) Lx

Julie Ann Lee said...

Hello there, Whimsygirl! Thank you so much for stopping by earlier. I've been so busy today that my return visit is rather late. I love how you're organizing your stash and taking things steadily sounds like such a good idea! OK, a diptych is a decorative plaque or picture in two, often hinged parts; a triptych is one divided into three. Hope that makes sense. Lovely that you visited. I'll try to visit earlier next week! Hope you had a creative and happy Wednesday! Julie Ann xx #35

Erika said...

I can only agree with the dear ladies here, you're doing it so fine to you and your very nice shelves tell of a long and happy life stamp artist :)

Shaz Brooks said...

Everyone seems to be tidying & organising this week!Starting to feel like I need a set to in mine now. Have a great week, sorry I'm running late this week, Hugs, Shaz #27 xx

April Story said...

Love your staging area. Keep sharing those organized areas - I need some motivation. :-) April #21

Kelly said...

HI Kay! The organization is going well. I agree. There is no point to just 'throwing it back'. Take your time, put it where you want it and in the end, you'll be happier with the result. I love the little chipboard suitcase of misc. I just wanted to paw through it for treasures ;-)
Creative Blessings! Kelly #15

Connie said...

Hi Kay, Looking Good! Everything is so pretty when it is setting there organized and ready when needed. Right now my studio is a mess. I've done about three projects without cleaning up after, so before I do anything else I have to get in a put everything back in its place. Three projects is the most that I can go before going crazy. When your space is small, it has to be organized, right. I love that you are taking your time and doing it right. I have a few things that I've just stashed in a drawer, or shelf . . . if I knew I could find them, LOL.
Have a great weekend.
Your blogging sister, Connie :)

fairy thoughts said...

Hi Kay
I thought I would pop back and says thanks for the nice comment and explain the whole zebra crossing thing. It obviously doesn't translate across the pond. Over here a zebra crossing is a pedestrian road crossing.... It has black and white stripes across the road and cars have to stop and allow pedestrians to cross.... Several cars were quite surprised to be stopping for a bride and her entourage hehe. Have you ever seen the Beatles Abby road album cover..... It's just like that

Lisa-Jane said...

What a great clean up job! Love those cases too - yummy!

MaryH said...

Hi Kay, just trying to pay a few visits this evening. Gosh, I'm loving your organization in this closet. It looks so very tidy when you finished. Can you come do my space????Hope things are going ok for all the irons you have going in the fire. Just wanted to touch base and let you know you were in my thoughts! Hugs

Sandee Setliff said...
