WOYWW #138

Do you realise this is the last Wednesday in January? It was surely only the first one last week. Mind you, it's rained most days and the light has been so bad that I probably missed them all anyway. Thank goodness for Julia who reminds us it's Wednesday each week or I wouldn't have a clue what day it is.
I have been busy making cards for the NW Ambulance charity shop and actually managed this lot:

There are 50. Not a bad start on using my stash. I made myself a pledge only to use glue - no stamps, no inks, no stickles etc. etc. just card, paper, ribbon and any images already prepared. So far so good, but these 50 cards haven't even made a dent in the bits I want to use.
I took this photo yesterday but my space looks the same this morning. Completely cluttered.

I will have to clear it up because I have a DT piece to create because I may not have much time to spare for a few days. Can't say more than that at this stage.
Well folk, what is your desk looking like today. I'll try and call by some of you so get the kettle on........

PS if your commenting opens in a new window, I usually succeed - if not, if you see this for approval I’ll consider it a Blogger miracle!

Kettles on! You've done really well, what a great way to set yourself the challenge to use up bits and pieces too...it's that the stuffs up the tidiness, and by the way, doesn't look as bad as mine today after the grand total of 3 and a half cards!!

Elizabeth said...

Hi Joanne, that's an admirable amount of cards there - but I think I could have told you that it's hard to make inroads into the snippet pile ... I've been plugging away for months now and still not made a significant difference. Like your rules though. Intrigued as intended and will pop back to see what else you are up to. Have a great week.
