What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday 53



I took these pics yesterday evening..sun soaking various parts of my tiny but lovely room. Mr Dunnit was minding his own biz, playing cards on the PC whilst waiting for tea. I remembered a domestic priority - the green bin needs to be brought from the back garden to the front for emptying..and while it's dry and sunny, it's a good time to drag it through the workroom - so I went to the trouble of moving the desk and Mr D did everything else! See, my desk sits against the barn door to the garden...the whole room was built on the back of the garage (and you can see that door from this pic - no idea why I'm bothering you with this!) So we had to be a bit smart in fitting the workroom. Well, Mr Dunnit did. I chose the paint colour. My desk is on humongous casters so in theory it can be swung around and out of the way with ease. But of course, it's so cluttered that it takes a little more than 'ease'. Still, on the bright side, I did at least sweep the floor!


The first shot is taken standing outside through the door that you normally see as a window above my desk. The long shot is from the left end of my desk ; pen pot and scrap box really dominate. But you can see the printer and compuer which aren't actually on my desk..that's a whole other worktop to fill up! But, some clearing and levelling will begin. It has to, I have loads to do and it is finally driving me mad. Yeah right, watch this space!


And talking of space - share yours will ya? Photo it, upload it to your blog and use Mr Linky here to show us where - easy. Doesn't have to be papercrafts and it doesn't have to be a desk - just show us what you're working on, it satisfies a deep and extraordinary need in all of us, really. But mostly me I expect!

Morning Julia, great views of your workspace this week! Love all of the creativity thats going on here. My hubs is always on his pc, we only communicate that way now, me on mine, him on his, lol! We send each other messages, normally get me a cup of coffee, lol!

Have a super week, hugs Heidi xx

Wipso said...

Oh for a wooden floor that I could sweep clean. Mine is carpetted and has to be hoovered daily to remove all my threads.

Helen said...

Oh, what great pics today! Love th sun shining through the window. Is that really a big bag of ribbons against the wall?

Jamie said...

Fab pic, I love the evening sun pouring in! x

Craft Addicts - Tracy Evans said...

Wow what a wonderful view of your work room this morning Julia. A very creative space and what a fantastic idea having the table on big casters so that it can be moved about. I would only remember to think about that once the desk was full and I couldn't move it and would then have to empty it all LOL. I have had a good old nose this morning, had my nose to the computer LOL. Have a great day, Tracy Evans x

peggy aplSEEDS said...

always nice to see a busy desk!

Jennie said...

Great photo Julia, although I am confused as to where I am now! lol btw sent you back an email, and hoping you got it??? did it go into hyperspace?? If it did can you call me? number on my website...
Hugs and thank you for yet another fab woyww

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

So does this mean you'll be cleaning the desk, too? Just joking of course. I love the desk with the casters and the white legs, but most of all, I love those hardwood floors. I would give anything to get rid of my ugly carpet that I've covered with anti-static mats to avoid spills on said carpet and replace the whole mess with hardwood.

And I really want to know what a "Green Bin" is. Happy WOYWW53, and the start of a new chapter in this saga.

angelwhispers said...

Looks fabulous in this light!!! Love your craft space Chanelle

Lothian Crafts said...

Dawn said...

Oh I saw a pickky on the wall so sweet and lots of yummyness, our bin is safely out (not the green one for us though today lol) I have four coloured bins for recyling I think every one should be made to have them as it's still only volentry!

Love Dawn xx

Sue said...

Hi Julia
great piccie of ya craftroom, nice clean floor can't see mine! lol. sue.x

Bee said...

now you have confused me (doesn't take much) so used to seeing the window behind your desk. There isn't room to swing the proverbial cat in my room so guess I wont be asking OH to put castors on my desk.

Have a good week.

xx

Yvonne said...

Julia , fabby .. love seeing the piles of stuff, you always want that litlle thing at the bottom , lol .. TIMBER!

I have the recycle bins ( mine always seem to be over flowing to the neighbours).. isd that a good or bad thing :{

Helen said...

That is my video recorder in the shot (yes, still got a video, no dvd yet....) but I normally have the TV on and quite often 5 Live Sport on the radio too...... well, I have 2 ears, don't I! Can't get to the stereo, one week I'll embarrass myself with a shot the other way down the room.....

Andrea - Wales, UK said...

Fab pics today great view of the whole room and lots of lovely stash on that desk!

I've sent you an email, hope you've received it!

xx

Foil Play said...

Ooooh a different angle to snoop from, what fun :-D

That big pot with all the ribbons hanging out looks interesting - I had my nose to the screen peering at that!

Nicks said...

I love my wooden floors, just a whoosh with the broom and hey presto its read for another avalanche of bits and in my sons case - mud!
but I have a question, cant you leave the bin at the front?

Vicki said...

wow you actually had sun... we've had rain the past 2 days!!!! LOL. i love your room, it's really lovely. hope you're well.... congrats on the success of last week, here's to another year xxx

itsamistry said...

WOW loving your workroom. I want to come in and play with all the goodies you have if only we could jump in via the computer screen we could all visit each other without the hassle of distance and traffic.

Linby said...

OMG - I thought it was a whole other room at first! Can you send some of that sun my way please, had the light on all day yesterday, and not much better today. My green bin day today too.
Linbyx

Artyjen said...

Great idea with the castors on the table legs.
xoxo Sioux

Angie said...

So it was you that pinched all the sun ...its has been so dark and wet up here ...'drecht' is the word.
I am a little confused by the oriantation of the room ...but then it takes so little to confuse me xx

Carmen said...

I loved this post! Your room is fabulous and all that lovely natural light! For some reason when you've done your swings to the right and left I thought your room was really big!

Carmen said...

P.s Please give LL Jan a massive squishy bear hug from me please :)

Stressed Stamper said...

Morning - off today - fab...love the desk and spied a Laura Ashley holder that I have...you have pens in it...good idea...off hopping

Kate said...

I too am getting to the point where it's just going to have to be sorted. But I wouldn't hold your breath!!

** Kate **

tkelli said...

ooo what a great idea! I wonder if casters would work on the "new" table I'm getting once we move?? By new, I mean I'm inheriting our old kitchen table, as we got a new one lol

Joanne said...

I would love casters on my workroom so I could take it outside on a sunny day lol.
Joanne xx

Bee said...

Julia I've also given you an award over on my blog.

You so deserve it.

Caroline said...

Lovely room! Nice to have lots of space to move things around...x

Toucan Scraps said...

lovely to know this about your workspace - I love barns style doors. Tish'a cot is on wheels and sits infront of my bedroom cupboard.

Lisa said...

Oh I love these type of photos, I can imagine the whole room next week when you're back to normal!

Yours Artfully said...

Good morning Missie Julia....fab pics....wish we had a share of your sunshine! It's only 10am, I'm hoping to see more desks than I did last week....I knew I had a curious streak (or should I say nosey)so I'm loving this window into everyone's little crafting world.

See you same time, same place next week!!

Lin

P.S. Of course I remember meeting you!

kayc said...

Lovely room. I sent you an E.Mail. Hope you received it. Can you send some sunshine my way please? Kathleen x

Virginia said...

Wow love how the sunlight hits your desk - beautiful! I like the idea of a table on giant castors - may have to give this one some consideration! I've finally managed to add myself to the list - but be warned you need a cuppa if you're going to see mine through to the end - it's not for the fainthearted!

Diane Marsh said...

My first time doing the WOYWW posting...Hope it's ok to just join in?

Alix said...

loving the arty workdesk shots!!
and if you pop over to my space today...to make up for me missing last week's anniversary...you just might win a prize!!
:0)

Heather x said...

I Julia, this is my first time joining in. what a brilliant craft space you have, everything at hand...I have to keep getting up and down to get what I need, I am desperate for a craft room :0)
*hugs* Heather x

Liverpool Lou (Anne) said...

I was wondering where the window was! It's great having a totally different view, love the idea of the castors even if at the mo' there's far tooooo much stuff on to make them really viable hehe.
Have a good day ;o)
Anne xx

Deanne said...

finally back in the land of cyberspace and hoping to join back in with woyww very soon, i've missed everyones spaces :)

Cath said...

Notice how you don't see much of the floor in my pics......lol
Love your room, the table on casters is a great idea. thanks for showing us.

Cathx

Bettythebaglady said...

Aha Castors-a subject close to my heart at the moment. Is there a crafting wavelength that we all tune in to? I too have swung around and shown a different view and discussed castors-which I have yet to order. I did order from QVC yesterday-daren't even switch it on today-way too many "must have's for my liking. Have a great day. Love BettyXXX

Paper and Ribbon said...

Lovely picture today, what I wouldn't give for a wooden floor! I don't envy you the task of clearing and levelling, when I did it I found I had way more stuff than I thought!

Sarah said...

A very different view on your workspace this week mine however looks much the same as ever!

Diana said...

Love the table on big casters--brilliant idea, even if the theory doesn't always translate to reality!
Thanks so much for providing the forum for this fun, mad Wednesday Julia!

judie said...

Dragons Lair Designs said...

Darcy said...

Hi Julia, great view. I wish I had room to move stuff around, just for a change now and then, but its all jammed in tight lol we have wooden floors too and boy do they get dusty, i guess you dont notice it with carpets.

Your pal Jan left a comment on my blog with no way to contact her, can you pls tell her the Bow Bag is a commercial paattern avaialable from The Fat Quarter quilting shop in Gateshead.

Love your ribbon bin

sutty said...

Lovely sun drenched desk...and I notice a broom in the corner, so tidy too :)

Rosie said...

Very interesting to have a new angle to look at, and castors on the desk sound like a brilliant idea! Off to link mine in now - computer was having one of those "not responding" moments earlier.

Twiglet said...

Sherry Goodloe said...

Good morning Julia! I hope all is art-filled for you this wonderful Wednesday morning *smiles*

Love your workspace and all its goodness.

Thistleblue said...

oh great to see from an other view! I really wish we had a wooden floor in the office, would make cleaning up a whole lot easier, especially when the cat decides to go exploring and pushes my rubbish basket with all those wee fiddly bits which always ends up all over the carpet!
hugs
Michelle

Dylan said...

Rachael said...

I wish i had a whole room just for my crafting! My desk is in my bedroom so theres nowhere near as much room as you seem to have. Lots of lovely crafty stuff on your desk, I'd love to have a rummage :) xx

Kathryn said...

Love that time of day! Wonderful to have a different peek into your room this time. I have wood floors in my room but, I don't see them much for all the junk covering them. I really need to get that cleaned out, its cramping my creative style! Maybe next week...
hugs!

Linda Elbourne said...

A desk on wheels ... what a fab idea and how handy Mr Dunnit is! The evening sunshine would be welcome this evening here ... but sadly me thinks it is unlikely to stop raining!

Alisonw30 said...

Doone said...

you see, if my desk was on wheels I'd be riding it from one side of the room to another - kinda big chair effect - ohhh ohhh- add some wings and pretend its a plane - I'd be so busy playing with my wheeled toy I'd never get a single craft thing done,.... lay upon it and demand SOMEONE ANYONE push me to the sunshine outside, for I have lost the use of my legs.......feeding me grapes along the way....hahahha

flutterbycrafter said...

Love the way your photos have turned out, really artistic.

Rachael said...

I know how it feels to have to move everything too! My workdesk is the living room so cant leave anything out for too long! Still doesnt help with being organised lol
Rach xx

The Crafty Chick said...

Ok so sweep all that craft stuff onto the floor and just whizz up and down the room on your table. Arms our tummy down and wheeeeeeeeeee ( you must do this wearing one's crown BTW). I have to get a desk with wheels too now! Then we can zoom together. That would make a great piccie for next week !!

DoubleClick Connections said...

What Fun!! I never posted my messy scrap area before!

Kathy said...

I didn't get to play this week Julia :-( some nasty meanie stole my week away. But I just had to come and have a look at your desk while I was checking up on your blog.
Are you saying that you have to move your desk every time you get your green bin emptied? <>

Maybe you should put casters on the bottom of the legs - the sort with "brakes" as we wouldn't want it whooshing across the room every time you pressed on a stamp

Hazel (Didos) said...

Sorry I missed the fun again. My camera is broken and has gone to heaven. Pooh!!!!
Love the idea of casters they make things so much easier when we need a change.
The joiner who put up my smmer house had put one up at an Old Peoples Home with caster on it so they could move it round in the sun!! Hope they had brakes though!!
Thanks for hosting again. Hope to join in again once the new camera arrives! Hazelxox
