Very Untidy Desk!!! Shocking

How shocking is this!... see this is what happens when you get carried away crafting!

I have recently started a little part-time card editing job for a fab company online... I am loving it and of course making every card that I edit... well one has to to make sure that all the measurements etc are right!

But after seeing how tidy some people's desks are... I think I need to tidy up!
