On my desk...

Hello. Welcome to my messy desk this week.

WOYWW 85

No scrapbooking or cardmaking today.

I have the same "one little word" each year - or at least the same theme - simplicity, minimalism or declutter. My desk is definitely one of those things I need to declutter. Very tempted to throw everything into a garbage bag and start fresh, but I thought better and would tackle one thing at a time.

Today, I thought I'd start on my CD collection. They just sit under a pile of stuff on my desk. Since I spend a lot of time browsing blogs (and desks!), I figured I could downsize my collection and start importing them into the computer. One CD a night. That's the plan and in a few months, I plan to donate the CDs to a good cause. Wish me luck.

Baby Z Jan 2011

Here's my cheeky little buddy. Baby Z is climbing everywhere! And learning to stand without support. Great. I guess I should start locking the door to the craft room.

Hope your day is fabulous. Join the desk-hopping adventure at www.stamping-ground.blogspot.com.

My attempt to declutter my craft area resulted in me moving a lot of stuff into the rest of the house... and its still there. But this room looks great in comparision... other than my mess now covering the floor.

Look out, Baby Z will be running in no time!

Pam said...

You're a brave one aren't you? I think Baby Z is saying - forget the decluttering mommy, let's go for a run!

Julia Dunnit said...

Lock the door - or teach him an OCD like obsession for tidiness and not touching...hmmm...! Good luck with the minimal thing. Been there,tried that. Completely counter intuitive for me!!

Elizabeth said...

I can see lots of lovely Stampin Up stuff on your desk today. Your baby's smile would light up a room so how could you lock him out :) Thanks for sharing. Regards, Elizabeth #78

Looks like lots of inspirational crafty goodness there. And nice to see Baby Z's smile - he's very good at cheering us up. I think he has mischief in mind there...

Don't get rid of your CDROM's, just put them into a box somewhere out of sight. If you get rid of a CD you are supposed to ditch all the software from it, otherwise you could have a problem with copyright. I have loaded all mine onto a portable hard drive and store all the originals on a high shelf out of reach. The same applies to your music discs. Just something to beware of.

Angie said...

Such a cute little one ...soon you will need a lock on the door I fear ....or maybe you will manage to teach him not to touch lol...good luck

SueH said...

When I saw your CD case Sheila, I thought you were going to say that you had sorted your nestabilities and they were all neat and tide in there. That’s the way I keep mine.

Oh well, it’s something to think about once you have put all your CD’s on your computer.

you have a lot of wonderful creative things on your desk.

peggy aplSEEDS said...

but if you put everything in the computer, what happens if the computer crashes? ok, that's not going to help you declutter. i guess you just need to back up your favorites, just in case? just a thought. as usual, i love baby Z's picc. this one has such a cute smile.

Neet said...

Hi there Baby Z. Love your smile!

Thanks for showing us your busy desk mummy - don't throw anything away just be patient and do a little at a time.

Thanks for stopping by and commenting! I agree - the Bargain section at Borders was great. I think the journals are always there, and always that price. But the Piccadilly, that I think was a genuine markdown, because I've seen them on-line for a lot more!!

butlersabroad said...

Oh yes, I can't wait until he discovers all the fun things to play with in your room!! Good luck with the tidy up too.

Baby Z is such a cutie I almost forgot to snoop around the desk! I think clutter is a natural part of our crafting. I always am stimulated by what I stumble over. I like the CD idea!

Lynne said...

I don't see mess I see a great creative work space.

Spyder said...

aw, he's such a cutie and growing up fast, he'll soon be taking over your crafty space!!
Happy Woyww
