Making envelopes from calendars again.
Blue ikea rubbish bin is so handy and portable as it folds down flat. 
That grey tin to the left holds my calligraphy pens. 
The black mesh bag under that is great for holding stuff mainly pens when I go to craft club as I can see through it-got that from Officeworks.
Green ipad always on hand, I need an ipad deck chair like Julia's so it sits up.
Glasses for close up writing.

Joining Julia at her Stamping Ground to see more desks of crafty people


  1. Another busy desk Bridget :-) - you really are innovative with you envelopes.

  2. love all the colors- those envies will make full mail!

  3. Those calendars will make some colorful envelopes! Yes, the bin looks really useful! I don't think I've seen it in the Ikea stores I've been to though.
    Happy WOYWW!
    Hugs, peggy aplSEEDS@4

  4. Great desk today!! the pen pot looks useful, so does your rubbish bin. Happy WOYWW Helen 5

  5. What a fabulous idea to turn the calendar pages into envelopes! I think I will have to borrow this idea!
    Yes, that Spellbinders curved border die looks great. I am going to try it out asap :)

  6. Envelopes from calandar pages! Never heard of that. I love your Ausie Dunny! :) #18

  7. What a fun post! I love your 'dunny' too. I learnt a new word there!
    What a good idea to use calenders to make envelopes. They look really lovely I must say. I wish I had nice calenders. (I usually make my own printed on the computer, really useful but not pretty)
    Have a good week,

  8. what a good idea to recycle into something useful
    happy woyww

  9. Your calendar envelopes sound great! My calendars probably would not be good for that as they are the kind that don't have nice pictures...just posts about the growing season. Nice busy desk this morning! Glenda #31

  10. The envelopes are a great idea. Like the swap idea too, it reminded me that your ATC never did arrive I suspect it's wondering around the world somewhere, oh well never mind! Have a great woyww and happy crafting, Angela x 29

  11. I have never thought of that idea for envelopes - stunning photos to use up. x Jo #32

  12. Hi Bridget, great calendar envelopes - love the birds and animals, super recycling. Enjoy your week Cheers RobynO#15

  13. Looks like you are very organised to be making those envelopes. I would keep the pretty pics but never get around to doing anything useful. Have a lovely week.

  15. Hi Bridget,Yes, I'll email it to you. Isn't IKEA full of great stuff for us crafters- heaven help us if they ever go into the actual craft market! Love your pictures especially the porcupine?/ hedgehog one. Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #7 xx

  16. Hi Bridget, love the dunny photo though I wouldn't like to have to use one :) Your colourful envelopes are fabulous - upcycling at it's best. Have a great week. Elizabeth x #52

  18. What a great way to use up old calendar pages and they make the most interesting envelopes too guess they need a little label to post them but a great idea hugs Nikki 8
