If you're looking for the Peep Show please scroll down...I promise it's worth it.  :-)

It's Wednesday and time for a peep of a different sort on Julia's Stamping Ground (WOYWW177).  My workdesk hasn't seen much fun lately.  I left everything as it was to take up painting the master bedroom.  All was going well until today...something told me NOT to take my trim pail up the ladder but I did...what goes up, must come down and come down it did....all over the rug, the sliding glass door and into the door jamb. 

Painting stopped, Stanley Steemer called and carpet had to have an emergency cleaning...Now I have to paint with a C:LEAN carpet underfoot.  NO pressure.

Here's the OTHER mess I left on the workdesk.

A Thanksgiving card in progress, some lovely May Arts ribbon, and an assortments of "Stuff" waiting to be put away...after I finish painting.  sigh.....

Be sure to pop over to Julia's for a look at other desks around the globe.

Pin It!

Oh Charlene...your card is looking nice...but what a painting nightmare...My heart goes out to you!
Something similar happed to DH once. He was painting and stepped back into the paint tray...I don't know if he didn't notice or what...but walked all the way to the bathroom to clean up...paint all in hall, bathroom and family room...uggggh...Of course the halls and family rooms were carpeted in those days...
Your story brought back memories!!!

I always say he probaby knew and did it on purpose as I never let him paint again. Well, that coupled with the fact that he was a horrid painter!!! LOL

Oh I'm sorry about the paint's never convenient is it! still, will be worthwhile, no doubt. I spot an ink pad with GOOd written on it. Are you like me...can't quite bring yourself to throw the old one out for a while?!!

That is dreadfull news I do hope you are alright, it is horrible when you know the accident is going to happen, you can feel it is a bad day but you still plod on in hope you are wrong. Glad the steam cleaner fixed it.

Lovely in action desk there, happy crafting.
