W.O.Y.W.W.102!

Good Morning,

Not long to go now until the PIF for What's on your Workdesk Wednesday, organised by Julia Dunnit over at the Stamping ground. I'm panicking a bit because in order to make my PIF gorgeous, I have to find the electric sanding mouse and manual planer...now that's got you thinking. They're not at my Father in Laws, {or my Uncle, only called my Uncle because he borrowed my Dad's orbital sander 35 years ago...Thanks Peter Kay!} so I'm hoping they're up in the loft - it's such a treck to get up there though, and I don't think I have the energy.

Instead of showing you what's on my desk {okay, I know that's the idea}, as it's very much the same as last week, I thought I would show you what is still a mammoth task ahead of me. I have 117 packs and numerous loose stamps to sort, stamp in my catalogue and file away in CD cases, as I've shown you here. It's a never ending task. I vow that I will buy no more until the job is complete but I just lie to myself. You know how it is.

These are my greeting and sentiments stamps. Yum!...
...and these are my everyday stamps which I need to sub-classify into other sections...
...a closer look at the gorgeousness!...
and these are my Christmas Stamps, which of course get a section all of their own!

Well, that's all for this morning, I hope you don't mind but I'm craving my toast and coffee! Thanks for visiting and having a nosey at my desk - I plan to do the same to yours!!

WOW..you task to me would be overwhelming and I would put it on hold!!! A break for coffee sounds wonderful. Happy WOYWW and have fun organizing. I bet You'll find things you didn't know you even had. Even as much as I have I never have the right size to fit in a tiny space. Enjoy

hi Clare, you can show your desk or your work area. No limitations, we love a good nose! Crikey that is a lot of stamps and i thought I had too many!!!! I definitely dont have 117 loose ones or that many stamps in cd cases! Yes we do try to stop buying - but it never works. I see a Penny Black stamp hiding away underneath your christmas stamps. x

Deb said...

it is such a painstaking task, I have tried from time to time to catalogue mine but always get sidetracked! Love all your stamps though!
Happy Crafting, Debxx

Julia Dunnit said...

Looks like that system is working for you Clare - here's a radical idea - change your system so it doesn't involve any work - just leave 'em in categories....or will that make your teeth itch and have you waking in the night?? Really happy that you will be joining the PiF - but really, we can take it if it's not sanded smooth to within an inch of its life....!!!

I'm glad it's not just me that can't stop adding to to the pile of homeless stash Clare! (and also has all the good intentions of filing lol!)

Thank you for sharing :)
