WOYWW - A Very BIG Mess

It's that time of the week again already, and we're just about to visit craft desks around the world, courtesy of The Stamping Ground, whose blog can be found Here

This week, we have a desk of disarray

An hour before this mess was taken, we were ready to post a picture of a pristine desk, so what happened?

Well first, Horace decided he was in the mood to make tags, and decorated two with pastel chalk mists. He then realised he would need to leave these to dry before decorating further, so went off to watch his favourite programme, Paddington Bear.

While Horace was gone, Podgy decided to continue with decorating his printers tray house, but he only got as far as placing it on the desk, when he heard the opening bars of the aforementioned programme, and, being his favourite also, he padded off to join Horace on our furry sofa.

To the far left of the picture you may spy a tin, this is an old coffee tin that Pooh bear decided to use to house the bears' paint brushes, he had plans to decorate it, but after placing it on the very limited space on the desk, his tummy became rumbly and he left to forage for food!

Wilbear then decided that the drawers you spy to the right of this picture were becoming rather cluttered, not with useful stash, but useless trash. We do have a tendency to hoard every little thing we come across, we like to take our cue from the Wombles! However, Wilbear is a little OCB (overly cleanly bear) and decided that we should be more want-not-waste-a-lot than waste not want not! Bearing (pardon the pun) that in mind, he filled a pizza box full to bursting with trashy stash that he decided we just couldn't use.

Who gets to clean up the mess? Me, Hamley *sigh*

Not before I've visited a few desks though.

With love from the bears 🐻


  1. Bears. Whilst you have your organising heads on please come and visit me and organise my house. Then I may have a work desk to work upon!

  2. No problem. You do supply chocolate in immense quantities don't you?

  3. Hold on - pizza Boxes with side extentions are great for spraying in and you can put them aside for drying too. BJ#79

  4. That, my dear bears is what I'd call an immaculate and clean desk!!!

  9. Hi Bears, I can see there's a reason for all the mess but there's a noticeable lack of honey on that desk. Thanks for stopping by my blog before clearing up. Elizabeth x #75

  10. Love to see bears being active in Blogland, and they do keep things nice and tidy (Not). Only don't tell them!! Our bears are quite active in our house too, but they don't do much crafting.

    Happy belated WOYWW,

Thank you so much for taking the time to comment on our blog. We read and treasure each and every one and always try to return visits. Please don't post spam, it will be deleted as bears much prefer chocolate! :)
