       Oh, my goodness!  Wednesdays sure come quickly!  If you are wondering what What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday is all about, check out Julia's Stamping Ground for the details!
        So, I am not doing that much creating, as much as I am organizing!  Although, it does not look like organizing, that is what I am doing.  I am re-cataloging my stamps.  I have already imput all my SU! sets all 188 wood mounted sets and 40 clear mounted.  Now I am listing the  Non-SU! wood mounted and  clear mounted.  I am doing all of this in the program Evernote. I didn't know it would be such a huge undertaking!         My photo this week is of this week's work area, which is my table in the family room with my laptop/desktop. It was a laptop before the screen went out, so now is a desktop with a TV screen! LOL There is my sewing machine for what little sewing I do, mostly on cards.

I have all of these stamp set below to do yet.   When I notate the set , I also scan a photo into the computer. I do this all on my PC, but have access to my stamp inventory on my mini iPad, which is real convenient!  I am pretty excited about this project, although it is a lot of work!

I am pretty late getting this posted, because I had a busy Wednesday card making with our ladies at church for our encouragement Ministry.  Have a wonderful WOYWW!  Thanks for stopping by and for your comments.  Now I am going to go visit you and see what you are doing! :)


  1. I am in awe of your organisational skills! What a lot of lovely stamps you have - keeping them in order is no easy task! Thank you for your visit earlier! Have a great day and a lovely week and good luck with that marathon of cataloging! Julie Ann xx #38

  2. Have fun organizing you massive stamp collection. Happy crafting #4

  3. May have to consider the encouragement card idea for the church I attend. Seems they are having a hard time getting people to sign up for the ministry. I have a hard time delivering meals, but could make cards to send to people. Kim #98

  4. Wow, that is a lot of stamps you have cataloged! You know you can replace the screen on your laptop. My DD cracked hers! It was pretty easy too.

  5. Looks like you have a stamp for any occassion. Getting them organized has got to be a high priority. Good luck.

  6. Hi Sharon, thanks for stopping by and leaving such lovely comment. I am truly amazed at your organisation skills and also amazed at the number of stamps. No wonder you feel the need to catalogue. All the best with your watercolour class always helps to have good instruction and if you bought quality products you will notice in the end result.

  7. Hi Sharon
    you are doing a great job indexing all your stamps, I started doing mine had to stop a quarter of the way in and have not managed to get back to it yet. The thing is I will need to go back over what I have already started and add more to it. We will get there one of these days I am sure of that
    Happy WOYWW and wishing you a great week

  8. Wow - I'm organizing but I am not cataloging my stamps. Luckily I don't have a lot! Organizing never ends, does it!

    Happy WOYWW
    Peace, Kay (19)

  9. Gosh, your organisation is amazing...The PSX stamps caught my eye...they (especially the Botanical series) would have to be my favourite...pity the company was dissolved.

    Good luck with the watercolour class...I would like to do one in the near future.


  10. It will be all worth it in the end I have all of my stamps catalogued and have for years it was the best thing I could of ever done. Keep at it and happy crafting

  11. Wow, Sharon! You are going to be one organized girl! I spend way too much time searching for just the stamp I want. I know it's here somewhere!

    I, too, do many cards for my church. I send all the get well and all the sympathy cards for members. The card class I teach is at my church with all the money generated going to support various missions of our church. And yet, I have way too many cards still laying around the house!

    Happy crafting this week!!

  12. I love that your stamps are soooo organised and in boxes, I forget what I have so like my favourites out so I can see them!... I used to leave my tea in the microwave too, but our new one beeps until you open the door and it drives me mad, so I have to go-get it! Happy (Late)WOYWW


  13. That does look like a huge project Sharon, good luck with it, but it sounds like it will be handy to be able to access everything on your ipad too. SO if it's taken me three years to get round to decorate the caddy, I wonder how long it will take me to start thinking about cataloging my stamps, lol! Have a great weekend.

  14. Wow - that is awesome - you will be able to see your stamps on your ipad mini. Too cool. What a great idea to send cards to church members to encourgage them. I like it - we may have to do that. Thank you for stopping by my blog earlier. April #21

  15. wow that looks like it will take some time. good luck with your organizing. i am very late this week, sorry.
    you asked about my cosies. i am not using a pattern. when I crochet i tend to just work in spirals and make it up as I go along. if it all works out I will try and write a pattern but it may be some time
