What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday

Another piccy of my workspace for you and the What’s On Your Workspace Wednesday. I had such fun sharing my creative space with you last week that I thought I would do it again this week.

This week my desk is set up for photographing a make. My little work desk has to do everything!

But I thought I would also show you my bin set up – a couple of people asked me about the bags hanging from my desk that they could just about see in last week’s WOYWW photo.

So here they are! I made a couple of bin bags from fabric to hang off of my desk and use whilst I am working because I am too lazy to get up and go to the bin. I think you can guess that one is for anything that can be recycled and the other is for things that can’t be recycled. You often find me scrounging around in my bins for things to reuse!

Oh and if anything goes missing from my desk it is usually because it has fallen off into one of my bins.

Enjoy your WOYWW!

    Ah, I seee – very good idea…I try not to leave my desk once i'm in the zone (!!) but am not as practically organised as you. Love that you made them – they sure enhance your space.

    Well done on your bins, they're fantastic!
    thanks for sharing

    Wonderful idea for the bins, I tend to stuff everything into the one I have and then go through it when it's full, sorting out recyclables and so on. Gets a bit messy sometimes!


  19. 23 June 2010 / 12:29 pm

    oh love the bins!
    *hugs* Heather x

    they are really sweet, love that you made them. I have a small ikea pop up bin hanging off my table as i hate having to get up too lol I also have a recycling bin in my craft room, but it is bigger and over by the door.

  21. 23 June 2010 / 1:26 pm

    Those hanging bags are so clever. Love the appliques you added. No way you're going to not know what goes in what that way. Love your "photo booth" too. Happy WOYWW.

  25. 23 June 2010 / 5:34 pm

    Those bags are a great idea Kim! x

  26. 23 June 2010 / 6:26 pm

    love the bins kim!!! i must admit i put my rubbish on the floor whilst I am making stuff and then pick it all up after!!!

  27. 23 June 2010 / 7:38 pm

    Hey love your tidy bags Kim. I usually just use an old carrier bag to pop my rubbish in – its better than the floor !!!!


  28. 23 June 2010 / 9:17 pm

    Oh this made me laugh – I too end up raking in my bin for things that have fallen off the edge of the desk! Love your bags – and what a great idea to split them into recyclable and non-recyclable.

  29. 23 June 2010 / 10:24 pm

    Yes I have a bin..or two! in fact my title on my blog…in a darkened corner a pile of paper grows…means the recycle bin!
    Hope you got the 'darker' piggy, I added him a little while ago, definitely better! and well done on being 'gingered'

  30. 23 June 2010 / 11:01 pm

    I have two 'bins' as well but mine are just a paper bag for stuff that can be recycled and a plastic carrier for stuff that has to be got rid of.

    Love all those little drawers I can just spy.
