My Work Desk

Karen from Little Scrap Pieces asks "do you work better in chaos or in neatness"?  At the moment my desk is relatively neat and organised as I'm setting myself up for a card making marathon . . . got a huge craft fair in 2 weeks to get prepared for.


I usually work in chaos, but prefer to at least start in neatness  : )
