Justin's Spinning Desk Organiser

G'day everyone!

Well, it is FINALLY finished! this one had me second guessing myself so many times it was getting so frustrating. I would say time and time again that I would put it away for a few days and come back to it with a fresh mindset. Well, that didn't work for long as it kept eating away at me that I was 'losing' it!

Many of you who know me, know that I 'love' working out measurements for things I'm making, heck I measure EVERYTHING lol. So when things were NOT fitting into their spaces I was shaking my head and wondering what the heck I was doing! This rarely happens to me, so I'm of the opinion that my mind is starting to feel the effects of old age OR I really need to get back out into the workforce! I'm hoping it's the latter lol!

Having three grandsons you would think I would have had some paper suitable for boys that would be perfect - WRONG! What I did find (and might I say it was the PERFECT choice) was a complete paper pad of Le Cirque by Graphic 45. Justin LOVES the circus, so it just had to be!

Anyway, I finally finished Justin's "spinner" and while I did film most of the making of it I'm not sure whether I will try and edit all those videos and upload to YouTube or whether I should just put up a 'bloopers' video of it - the verdict is still out on that one, but will let you all know.

I have put a slideshow together and uploaded it to YouTube to show you up close how it all looks, until I decide on a start-to-finish video. Below is the slideshow and beneath that is the video of Justin's reaction to seeing his "spinner" for the first time.
