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.

    Thanks for the close-ups of the bins Kim. They're such a great idea and how clever for making them yourself!

  16. Thistleblue

    Well done on your bins, they're fantastic!
    thanks for sharing
    have a great day

    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!

    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.

  19. 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.

  22. Pam

    Great idea I have a bin which I have to sort each week into recycling having 2 would be so much easier. Hugs Pam

  23. Loopylou!!

    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!!!

  24. Penni

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


  25. Phree

    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.

  26. Spyder

    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'

  27. craftimamma

    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.
