I did this last year and found it very helpful. So I thought I would share this with you in case it is something you may find useful as well. And please feel free to share any great organisational ideas that you have because I am always looking for good ideas that will make me a little more efficient! lol
Anyway, all I really do is gather all of my Christmas supplies together in one place so that while I am working on my cards I don't have to go searching for different bits & pieces. In addition to the little tray (which is from Ikea in case you were wondering) I also have my stash of Christmas papers, rubons, embossing folders and punches etc in a box next to it so they are also within easy reach.
In this tray I have stamps, ribbons, buttons, embellishments, glitter, little bells etc.

This is both of my girls together with the younger one (Claudia) singing. I love that my house is filled with live music all the time. And with three musicians in the house, I am left with the job of roadie. LOL
This is one of my most favourite Taylor Swift songs :)

This is my 14yo daughter Madison singing Taylor Swift's new song, Speak Now. Sorry for the poor quality but it was taken on my iPhone. One of these days I will get the real video camera out and do some good quality recordings :)
But today I was at work when my phone alarm reminded me to take my WOYWW photo and I promised myself that as soon as I got home I would take the pic and post it, exactly as it was. I knew I had just left it in a bit of a mess last night after playing with some of my new goodies, before getting too tired to do anything else, as it appeared my creative mojo seemed to have already gone off to bed without me.
So here it is ... kitty and all! She usually waits until I go to sit down and then places herself ON the desk so that she can help me ;) And if you look closely you will spy some new stuff that I got this week ... it's kind of like a 'Where's Wally' game! LOL How many new things can you find? hehehe
See, I told you it wasn't always clean :) And to be honest this isn't even half as messy as it usually gets! I was just getting started here. LOL
And if you are like me and enjoy having a look at everyone elses craft spaces, you can check out the rest of this weeks entries HERE.

The Cancer Council's national Pink Ribbon Day is coming up on October 25th. Events held for this day aims to help raise awareness about breast cancer, as well as raise funds towards research, education and patient support programs.
Sadly I have two very dear friends currently fighting this awful disease and this year alone around 12,000 Australian women will be diagnosed with breast cancer.
The Cancer Council's website is www.pinkribbonday.com.au, and is packed full of ideas on how you can help the cause. You can also donate directly through the National Breast Cancer Foundation link in my sidebar.
Cardstock: Love Letter DSP , Cherry Cobbler Cardstock
Other: Designer label punch, scallop circle punch, sticky strip, black rhinestone brads

Three things about me:
1. I am extremely claustrophobic, and can't stand to have anything over my face at all. Even standing under the shower with the water running over my face freaks me out!
2. When I was about 8 or 9 I fell over while running with a texta or pencil in my hand (can't remember which it was), and I still have the nib in my palm to this day! (no it doesn't hurt). I have tried having it removed but it was an awful experience so I have just left it there since it doesn't bother me.
3. I HATE coffee (and in fact anything coffee flavoured). Interestingly, my two siblings are exactly the same yet we grew up in a family of coffee drinkers. People have always said I would acquire the taste as I got older but it still hasn't happened.
Hmmm how do I narrow this down to only 5 top blogs?! I just went by the last 5 I visited because I couldn't decide ...
Amanda (she has a new-look blog, gorgeous!)
It is perfect for my Big Shot, because before once I got working and there was no space left on my messy desk (I am not the only one that gets like that right?) I never had any room to put my Big Shot to use it! Although I can't guarantee that the new desk won't stay clear, that is the plan. LOL
The small 4 cube Expidit fits perfectly underneath and is home to my trimmers and Big Shot & Cuttlebug accessories.
