I have one drawer of card bases. Since 99.5% of all of my card bases are white, I have started pre-cutting a bunch at a time & keep them in one drawer. Another drawer has white 1/4 sheets of c/s. Again, I pre-cut a bunch of these at one time & then it helps save a little time when I'm putting a card together. My hubby & boys keep getting up earlier & earlier. And while, I don't crawl out of bed as soon as they do, I am awake. There comes a point in the evening where it is too early to go to bed & yet I have to find something to do or I end up wasting a bunch of time. This is when I cut card bases, 1/4 sheets, images, etc. I have also been trying to stamp off an image when I see a challenge that I want to participate in. Those go in another drawer, along with any images that I color & don't use that day.
There is a smaller 3 drawer organizer sitting on top of one that's 8.5 x 11. I have my acrylic blocks, adhesives, scissors, black Memento ink pad, etc. things that I use frequently if not every time I stamp. My copics are in front of me. I use them on 99.5% of the cards I make.
Then I also have my Quiet Time books, my journal & my calendar here. I come into the office to do my Quiet Time since my guys are in the living room training. If I go into the living room, they often interrupt me by saying goofy things like, "Hey Mom, watch how many times I can do a push up & clap in between!" Or "Mom, would you like to see who can do 200 push ups the fastest?" Even though their Dad is sitting right there!!! So I go into the office! *grin* And no... in case any of you were wondering, I haven't taken my son up on his offer to see who can do push ups the fastest.
So there, you have it... my desk area.
I'll be back later with a card!
