Only Human - and The Mess on My Workdesk

Oh my goodness! I made the most monumental mistake last week. I managed to mix up the shipping labels on two orders from my Etsy shops, one of which was a large custom order... and what a mess! Both customers were understanding and are returning the wrong package (at my expense) and both now have what they actually ordered. 

The bright side is that both orders were of the items I have a lot in stock, rather than one-of-a-kind items. So I was able to resend their orders before their return packages get to me. Blessings! But sheesh! :)

In other news, I am in the midst of sorting my office and making an attempt to, yet again, reorganize. It seems to be a never ending process with me. Repeat after me... I am organized! I am organized!
Unfortunately, I am in the very messy midst and have papers and stuff EVERYWHERE! I was so hoping to share a lovely organized table with you all. But I AM getting to the bottom... if you look close you can see some of the table top. 

The shelves in the closet are looking better... 
These are the shelves for my Etsy shops mailing envelopes and small item storage. They are still being tweaked, but are getting closer.  

So what's happening on your desk?  

Check out what other folks are sharing with Julie's What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday.

I am so pleased your orders got sorted and didn't cause you more grief. Reorganising always causes such a monumental mess.... but worth it in the end. Have a lovely week.

Well sorry to say this after much eye rubbing "I SEE NO TABLE" but that's just what a paper stash looks like. Well mine anyway.
Shame about the orders but glad you managed to put it right.
Happy sorting.
