IIWA? What's On YOUR Workdesk Wednesday

Blessed with a prudence far greater than mine, Angie has numbered her WOYWW entries and believe it or not, today is week 16! And I'm totally still up for it, I really enjoy a nosey around your work surfaces/spaces/desktops. I'm sure any psychologists looking for a study group would sing praises if they were to stumble upon this! So WOMyWorkdesk? My diary. A sketch for the next Crop challenge. A Dolly Mama image waiting to be erm, mounted. The best and most used script stamp I own. My 150 Xyron. Two cards for a 'Paper Engineering' workshop, which need tweaking. You can just see my new gloop punch on the right. And two cards, which qualify for a couple of challenges:
Fiona's inchy challenge is 'Leaf' which of course I've had to interpret because I can't do
one of anything and also...one inchy does not a card make for me! Same style as before too - inchy mounted and stuck over relevant part of same image. All made from scraps so am not too unhappy about it.
And then on the right, my card for the Daring Cardmakers challenge, which is Shabby Chic. Hmm, always leads me back to the thought that it should be grunge style and accomodate lots of wee wee colours, but as you know, I can't do that. So it's turned into an 'old lady' card as Miss Dunnit was kind enough to dub it whilst waiting for me to photograph it this morning. And she did wait too; I'd offered her a lift to College so that she could have a bit of a lie-in - the bus times don't work well for her first lesson time on a Wednesday and I took pity on her. That'll teach me. I can't send this card to anyone now because it has connotations!


Come on then - show us your workspace - desk, floor, surface, lap tray...we don't mind! Show us what you're working on and how you work. Fab. We'll drop in for a nosey. Add a button from the left margin if you like. Makes you easier to recognise!

I am off work so I get to WOYWW much earlier in the day!
Love the leaf stamp, really lovely.
Whats a gloop stamp?
:-)

Wipso said...

Thanks for your help but I've tried that and it says I have to specify an image. There are 20 basic gadgets I could use which one should I click on? Maybe a picture? what html code do I put in? Sorry I am feeling really stupid for asking. A x

I can't show my work desk today as it is full of secrets ... so when I have decided what to show you instead I will be joining in for week 16!
Your posts usually cheer me and inspire me to type funny and interesting retorts ... well I like to think so anyway ... but today I am walking away with a heavy heart ...

Miss Dunnit thinks I am an old lady :0( Because I LOVE that card :0)
I vote that you make her walk to college next Wednesday :0)

Basement gal said...

A very clever inchy card. That's a really good idea.

NormaJean said...

Hi Julia, wow I just love your blog and your work. this is so much fun and thanks for doing it. here is my area again
my area

Linda Elbourne said...

The old lady doth return ...

My entry for WOYWW is here ... not much of the desk I am afraid ;0)

SueH said...

Well, I actually remembered this week, so if you want to see the usual mess that is my work space you can see

What’s on my Work Desk here.

Love the cards by the way Julie. I must be an old lady too because I love the Shabby Chic card as well.

Wipso said...

helen miles said...

ooh i love the old lady card!

Avril Ann said...

Love the Desk Julia, looks like a very busy workspace, mines had been cleaned within an inch of its life, not much work being down at the minute for obvious reasons.. That is Tommy's school friend Jamie, who came for tea that night, so glad Tommy does not have a brother, as we would be bringing him up too, I have dones 6 kids already and now my grandson so 7 is enough....LOL. thanks for visiting me on my 1st day back. Hugs Avril xxxx

Angie said...

Finally I have managed to get my photos to load so I have now done my WOYWW. I love Wednesdays and will be peaking at everyones spaces later.
That Leaf card is brilliant ...so clever. The fern brought back memories of when I dabbled with cake decorating ...we used it with icing roses.

Elin said...

I daren't show anyone my desk as it's piled in a heap from stuff I dumped on it last night! How come I have a fab room to craft in but still end up on the floor crafting on a tuesday night in front of the telly! I love the inchies on the card - I agree, 1 inchie on a card gets lost!

Kathy said...

Your desk looks full of interesting bits and bobs today, I've had a good old peer at all the bits and pieces on it, you can be sure!
Cheeky monkey to label your DCM card "old lady" - you should save it and give it to her on her next birthday.....
Love the way you've used the inchies too - great idea.
My desk is shockingly clear today (well, for me) you can see what's on it here

Fiona Whitehead said...

Loving the stuff on your desk julia - great inchies - I love the way you show them actually being used, rather than mine which are all over the place! lol!

LadyBug said...

Great inchie Card!!! love the change of colour in the leaves. I'm finally back on track and have managed to join in again this week :)

Susie Sugar said...

I messed up the link so will try again!! Have a look at my mess here

Susie Sugar said...

Hi Julia yer we are not that far from each other are we.
Yes I always stamp up loads to colour for several reasons one I give loads away and live practically across the road from the beach so I have my bag permanently packed ready to go to the beach and colour and if rain stops me going to the beach in the afternoon I can be found in Costa coffee in Gosport with my double expresso ...yes you guessed it with my copic or promarkers colouring in peace !! Lol
The clips I got for scrap booking ...watch my blog I am sure they will be appearing on there soon !! He he
Love Susie xx

Carmen said...

Oh blimming 'eck it's wednesday is it? Ack. Be right back...

SueH said...

Hi Julie, thanks for visiting my blog.

The little ‘wheel’ container on my desk that you asked about is an Anita’s Gem Wheel that I brought in ‘The Range’ They come in two sizes and each one is filled with hundreds of little flat backed gems in twelve different colours.
I just love them, even though the tiny ones are a tad fiddly.

Carmen said...

*puff, puff* I'm back and I've WOYWW'ed.

I love your leaf card and have been helping (ha!) Devon do decoupage the last couple of days so may have to try and snag your idea, use what I've learned on her decoupage to have a go at some ATC's. Hmm.

I noticed that about Angies WOYWWs too - it was a 'pooh, why didn't I think of that moment ;)

Lynda said...

Great cards and I love the shabby chic one - beautiful colours.

Hazel said...

While bloghopping among crafting friends, I find your blog. I think this is a lovely idea - I like being nosey and seeing other people's workspaces. You can see mine tonight here x

freebird said...

That is a super card made of the leaf inchies. Very, very nice.

Hazel said...

You asked about the 'plastic bubbly things' in my photo - bubblewrap - which I used with some smaller as well - you can see the card I made here

Kit said...

your workspace looks very organised, Julia.

missy k said...
