What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 50

At last some sunshine! Again, taken last evening - but nothing has changed - except in about 5 minutes the glass will become a mug full of coffee. Funny that at bedtime I scout around and collect empties and rubbish and there's always one I miss!
Anyway, am meant to be keeping this short. On my desk, flowers from the punch, all sitting patiently waiting for the blue flocked centres to dry. A pack of BG Kioshi, yum. My new Scor-Pal (Metric!). I'm in love with it, actually. A notebook - ingredient lists for workshop cards. And if you come to any of my workshops, take note that there's a brayer on my desk too! And, a reassuring (if slightly difficult to see) return of the glass jar of Primas!
Thanks all for your comments about my post on Monday; I'm not a complete sewing novice, I must admit, so it's painful but not impossible! The post certainly wasn't a whinge about Miss Dunnit - she IS helping and she IS fully understanding of my sacrifice (!). After all, if I'm at home and she's at College and there's only one sewing machine between us.......yeah, you get it. Maternal guilt!

Now, show us what you've been up to on that desk, tray, table, worktop, floor of yours - you don't have to be paper crafting and you don't have to be a member - this is for fun. Upload a picture to your blog, link it here and we'll trot around for a visit. If you visit, please leave a comment; if you can't visit, don't sweat. Visit some other day, or visit a different handful from last week - if it doesn't work for you, it's not fun!
If you're gonna join us on week 52, you may want to consider the WOYWWAC - What's On Your Workdesk Anniversary Challenge. It's terribly easy. Make something lovely to adorn your workspace....it doesn't have to sit on your desk........it can be useful or decorative, it can be anything. But to be eligible for the Anniversary Challenge, it must somehow include the WOYWW acronym. Easy. Oh and erm....I'VE FINISHED MINE!!!

Jennie said...

omg I am one of the first.. that must be an achievement in itself... do I get a prize? I am always so last minute with everything, but was just finishing off the post to add the pics, clicked on your blog, and voila, you are up with the birds!! I certainly do not hasve one of those pink tidy trays you have but do have abrayer! As for sewing.. mmm got a prize at school, a little cup which I still have :( however I am not sure I would take on the task you have.. those days are long gone! Have a fun filled day sewing!

LadyBug said...

I'm pleased to see you have posted early :) that means I can get on here before I leave for work in just a few minutes. I promise I'll get around to as many blogs once I'm home from work this afternoon.

Darcy said...

Morning Julia, now I am with you on being messy and not putting alphas back in order but no way can I punch from a bit of paper and leave all those gaps, such wastage hahahaha I get my punch outs really close together.

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

Thanks to your wonderful encouraging words, I am once again playing in WOYWW. I have finally decided what I'm going to make for my WOYWWAC, but not sure I have the skills to make it. We'll just have to wait and see. Can't wait to see yours. Thanks again for the encouragement.

I want to know how you made the flower centers. I couldn't enlarge the photo, so now I'm curious. And I hope my comment from Monday's post about Miss D was taken in the humorous spirit it was intended.

Love that BG line of paper. I have only one sheet but I decided to get the whole set next time I'm at the store.
I have SMAD (Sewing Machine Avoidance Disorder) as described by Mitzi http://mitziscollectibles.typepad.com/mitzis_collectibles_blog/humor/
I own two machines that have not seen the light of day in 3 years! Keep thinking I should drag one out to use on paper... nah.

Nicks said...

just a quick hello as I have been out all day taking junior to the hospital and doing stuff and the family have jst decided that as summer has arrived today that we should all go canoeing before tea tonight, so your desk is the only one I have seen, will take a hike round other peoples later when i am home and have dried off!

Nicks said...

ps i cheated a bit and my desk shows yesterday.. but it hasnt changed one bit!

Linby said...

lot going on here - notebook looks interesting. can't wait to see what your anniv piece is, I have a great idea in my head but whether it makes it to fruition? actually that week my craft room is being decorated so won't have a desk to show so my anniv piece could have all the glory!
Linbyx

Rachel said...

I love your papers. I do love Basic Gray; their papers are so gorgeous. And the flowers look fabulous too. I've got to try taking photos of my desk from the top like you: everything always looks so cool in your photos. Have a good one.

Deb said...

gorgeous little flowers, love that BG paper too, glad you are enjoying your Scorpal! I had to get used to inches again here, luckily I remembered them from long ago!!! The school homework is a challenge with different measures and different spellings! I am relearning everything before I can help the kids!!!

hugs Debx

Vicky said...

Hi Julia, I have to confess to taking the oppotunity here....
I have been a bad blogger and not had much to show for ages, so hope you don't mind carrying me along this week.....
It's been so hard taking time out from my blog and withdrawals have taken there toll...
Your WOYWW is a fantastic show and tell and to be honest in the past have cleared my mess to show my mess if you know what I mean....lol

Thanks for sharing your world and I hope I get time to visit everyone!!!I intend to try....

As for finding things for the dishwasher to late...been there too...lol Have you got teenage boys like me....lol

Tracy said...

I am also a woyww virgin! Hope I keep remembering. I love that punch.

Sarah Lawrence said...

Thought this was a brilliant idea!
Aim to do to something for the challenge!

Bee said...

Hi Julia - finished yours???? I haven't even had a think about mine yet - oh well guess it's going to be wing it (as usual).

LadyBug said...

Good Grief!!! I have just managed to pop back and I think I have only visited about 50 desks!!!!! what is happening :) I meant to say earlier isn't it funny I was so pleased when my mathra stewart score baord arrived and it was in inches. i just can't seem to work solely in metric :) I really must try and settle down to making my WOYWWAC project this weekend :)

Carla aka scrappypug said...

just love this weekly event! just sooo much fun!

Julie said...

No desl from but still having a snoop!! So glad you like your Scor-Pal!! Juliexx

Sue from Oregon said...

Wow, I can not believe how many WOYWW'ers there are! How fun. Hey, there is a link to a place I buy my Peanuts/Snoopy stamps on my blog. Right hand side named RK STamps should you ever want to buy any. I would be happy to stamp any images I have as well!

The Paper Princess said...

Great post - wish I had a Scor pal (but not in metric, lol) - can't wait to see your anniversary project! What date is that again? I am behind on everything right now, I need to get cracking on that!

Ramona

P.S. WOW - 130+ people - pretty soon I'll be in the garage, lol!

Wipso said...

Hi Julia. I had a really manic day yesterday [had about a doz customers one of which was a bride with her dress that she couldn't get in and the wedding is this Saturday!!!] so I dropped in all the WOYWW I could manage last night and I've come back to use Mr Linky this morning to catch the late comers on WOYWW. The list isn't there :-( Where has it gone?
A x

Kerry said...

a day late but I am still here :)
the list of desks just keeps getting longer and longer, I love it :)

Bettythebaglady said...

Julia-Hi, had to scroll through just to see if I'd already commented-anyway if I am doing it again-bubbles-or some such expletive. Mine is a Hougie board and it has cms and inches but I suspect that scor pal also goes left to right as well as up and down although have only seen pictures. Hougie has markings down the sides where you can place your ruler and I just haven't had time to explore the possibilities.I do like the Hougie board though. Mind you I'm a bit of an equipment freak! Hugs BettyXXX
