My desk has spread to the floor this week as I prep for a dem day on Saturday. When I am prepping, I tend to put completed items in groups, as I make them, and then add the necessary materials to the piles before I check off my list.
I am not generally a very organised person but amazingly I can be extremely organised when I have to be. I use a master check list of all I could need, which I compiled years ago, then I check off all the items I do need for each event and occasionally have to add the odd special item.
As I put them in my trolley, I cross tick them so I can be sure I don't miss off an essential part of my class or dem. It has always worked well for me and my system may well help someone else who is as batty as me!
The dem day on Saturday will be at Cardio in Wigan and we will be having an Easter Egg-Stravaganza with lots of ideas, make & takes, decorations, Easter baskets and cards to share and chocolate eggs to pop in the make & takes too, if I don't eat them all before Saturday. It's always good fun there with such lovely friendly people so come along and join in the fun if you live close enough. I do believe I will be seeing WOYWWer Tilly there, woo hoo!
Here is the action zone with so much going on...
There on my desk you'll spy my treat that came this week from Neil Walker.
Neil sent me this gorgeous card....
not only the card, but also, and very generously, he sent me two of his new stamps which he designed for The Artistic Stamper. I had hoped to have a play with them but I've really not managed to find time.
I look forward to using them asap, so thanks so much Neil!
This expose of my desk and crafting is all due to our favourite blog boss, Mrs D, aka Julia of the stamping ground, and you can so easily see lots more and find out all about the "Whys" and "Wherefores" by popping over to her blog right HERE
Hope I manage to visit more of you this week but I'm meeting myself coming back at the moment. I think I managed to reply to more than those who kindly left a message but I'll do my best to get around to even more of you this week.
