WOYWW 370 - 3 weeks of desk mayhem

So sorry to neglect sharing my workdesk, and well, posting in general, over the last 3 weeks. I was busy preparing for hubs birthday and father's day as well as to leave and then we were gone for 2 weeks. We basically had a 3 part trip: to husband's work town, to my sister's and to my father-in-law's. Lots of travel, family and fun! A trip well worth the time, however, it's good to be on our own turf again.

So here is my desk shares:
This was my desk 3 weeks ago.

This was my desk before we left with the exception of a new layout which I started the day before we left. See the nice new paper layer was put down too. My daughter thought it looked WAY too clean and doodled on it immediately. But that is hidden under the Making Memories magnetic mat. 

And this was my desk yesterday morning, after getting home Sunday and piling stuff on the desk as per the usual dumping ground routine. But ....
there are lots of goodies that came from a trip to Hobby Lobby and a few stencils from Walmart. There is also the layout that was in progress when I left. I finally finished it last night after putting away my new goodies, and then pulled another pack of papers and photos to work with out.

That's my desk evolution over the last few weeks. If you want to see other workdesks, pop on over to our current hostess, Lunch Lady Jan's blog and view a few. And don't be shy, join in too.

Happy Wednesday!


  1. Hi Lisa, sounds like you had a great trip. Good that you came home with some new stash too! Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #5 xxx

  2. Hi again Lisa, I didn't know either for the longest time, and happily used the cleaner on both stamps and blocks. The stamps appear to have come through unscathed, not so much some of the blocks though! I ruined half a dozen before I read a comment on a forum, (SCS) and realised what was causing them to go cloudy. Glad to be of help. :) Shaz xx

  3. Now that desk looks full of interesting bits and bobs

    Happy WOYWW


  4. Lovely to see the evolution of your desk over three weeks! I always think the best time of being away is coming back home! Enjoy your week! zsuzsa #20

  7. Glad you had a nice time. Your desk did look too clean - glad I wasn't the only one who wanted to scribble/doodle on it!

    Have a great week

  9. You just reminded me `i need a new stencil that I saw at weekend. Must get searching on the internet.
    So glad you got some nice things whilst you were away and I bet you are quite happy really with the doodling your daughter did. Wonder, are you going to document your memories from your three weeks away?
    Thanks for visiting me earlier - have a good week.
    Hugs, Neet 2 xxx

  12. Have fun creating the new layout, our desks how they go from messy to tidy to messy again it is the crafting cycle hugs Nikki 6

  13. What a great idea showing a time snapshot. I love seeing all the goodies you can pick up locally, we don't have quite the choice you do here in the UK.
