GG! IIWA? What's on YOUR Wordesk? Wednesday

Well, in a staggering, nay horrendous return to form, here is what faced me this morning! It's slightly better now because I need order to get the blanks and cut-ups ready for a workshop tomorrow. And no, I don't know why I need more than one pair of scissors for snipping and cutting, but I do. The only consistency in scissors is my black tungsten pair that I use without exception for cutting tape and stickies..because they are non stick. It seems no effort to change to these for this purpose, so they must be good! Can you see my mobile phone perched on top of the sellotape dispenser? I had to ring it from the land line this morning because I just couldn't find it. But: this desk is certainly mojo in flow.. I managed to finish the 'cute' cards and I made another for the Christmas card Marathon and I even started work on something for A Magnetic Year in a Day, which is a bit of a miracle too. April to be exact. It's giving me trouble. So my desk is erm, excusable?! I know. Actually, in order to avoid a total tidy up, I'm going to pick out relevant bits, pack up some stamps and got to Fiona's. Her place is probably bigger - imagine the mess we can make there! Oh and, thanks to Sally-Ann for all the correct collectives, but I still maintain those penguins are a stack: well behaved aren't they!
I need some green gems, but other than that, I'm sticking with the stack!

So, what's on YOUR workdesk then huh? Brave doesn't come into it - we just want to have a look. Leave a link or a message here and we'll swing by - might even rummage - but certainly won't tidy!

I love that card Julia and would be very happy to receive it! Your workdesk looks like you've had a very creative session. I have three pairs of scissors on the go when I'm crafting (because I can't find them when I put them down!) Thanks for visiting my WOYWW already!

Here's my 'cheating' WOYWW

Hazel said...

I love having a nosey at other crafters' workspaces. I can't believe it's a week ago since I was here. My photo is here - thought I'd take it now rather than later (I've only just made three cards). x

sugar n spice said...

Hi Julia, found you via Susie Sugar, what a great idea, I love being nosy and peeking at other crafters spaces Here's mine

Chris said...

Hi Julia! As always, you've made me smile and your card of penguins is gorgeous, I think stack is the perfect way to describe them :). I'd be very happy to play in the level of mess on your desk, look at all that space you have to work in it must be at lease an eight inch square? My alien is perched happily on my table if you'd like to take a look but you'll have to scroll down the post a bit. Hope you're well. Chris x

my5bratz said...
