What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 55












I took this photo yesterday, about
5.30pm. It was very hot sitting at the workdesk. This morning the room is in total shade and because I'm still in my nightie, I'm freezing! Contrasts. This morning the first job is to clear this desk - ready for me to begin chopping and counting stock for Thursday's workshops. When I say clear, I mean the area of my glass mat .....for in truth I'm half way through some more hearts to sell and I don't wanna put stuff away just to get it back out again! I think that's the theory behind push-back. Works for me!
Amongst the erm, stash, are two of my favourite stamps - both by Dawn Houser -(the ones I used on the tag shown yesterday - must be my fave all time designer in rubber. I think...I'm not unsure of my devotion, I just don't know if I can make the commitment of 'definitely' my favourite - I mean, what if I discovered another!! Don't ask me ever to do a list of my top 10 of anything will ya? You can clearly see the broken 'S' of the B wordI talked about last week, and good grief, one of the suitcases Jennie gave me has found it's way onto the desk...this probably signifies some sort of intent! Probably. There's also my pair of black non-stick teflon coated scissors. Love 'em. Loved them even more before I had the bright idea of sharpening them and so removed the tungsten coating from the blade edges. Foolish old woman. Still, they're nice and sharp!

We're waiting to see your work space please - 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's fascinating! See you in a minute or so then!

Wow, Julia you are REALLY early this week!! Have linked my desk (floorspace) for you!

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

You are so funny. I am still laughing over this post. I can't believe you are cold. Not sure how cold it gets there, but it's SUMMER, Julia. Here our nights are in the mid 70s F (not sure but think around 25C). If you're cold, I'll trade you places this summer.

Glad to see you are making more of those hearts. They are my favs. And what did we do before Crop-A-Diles? Happy WOYWW.

Milliesmarvels said...

You are early! I would never dare approach that desk in my nightie as I would never end up getting dressed!

tkelli said...

Yep, an address book specifically for my blogging friends! I just made it a day or so ago, and am quite pleased with it! As for ATC's, I actually don't have any of those...have never made one either. It's something I'd like to try, so perhaps that will be something to look for on my desk next week :)

Wipso said...

Good morning early bird. Thats a very different desk you're showing us today. :-)

And I had to come back to you, to say I am so glad I can use my easel now!!! thanks again to you and Mr D. (and my WOYWW covered pen pot will be there for good!)

Lothian Crafts said...

Moving stuff is a much better idea than putting things away as it allows you to get inspiration from things if you can still see them. Thanks to you and Mr D for my easil I love it. It is sitting beside my promarker storage.

Yours Artfully said...

I was hoping to see that S & B in all it's glory this week.....fingers crossed for next week. Your desk is looking as interesting as always and you post always makes me laugh.....see ya next week

And I thought I was early this week. Well I am for me, and I'm dressed! I'm often to be found sitting here in my PJs though. The hearts have been fab.

Glen said...

Busy, busy desk today Julia. I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with the suitcases. Love the heart tags in an earlier post and your tag from yesterday.
It took me aaages to get Mr Blogger to work this morning....I uploaded and lost half of my post as it wasn't saved and booted me off! Grrr. I think we give him a hard time on Wednesdays and he can't cope! LOL. TFS. ~Glen~

Cheryl said...

oh morning hun see you are nice and early,hehe I always,am on my computer with my PJ's on he he and guess what I still am,ha ha,love whats on your desk,hun those hearts,look fab see you have a cropodile too,hugs cheryl xxxx

Kathy said...

Crikey, I've just added my link and we're already past 60 today! No way I'll get round them all, but I'll get to as many as I possibly can!

Our study gets the sun from first thing in the morning through the front window, then gets the afternoon sun through the side window. In the evening the sunlight bounces off the windows and right into my eyes when I'm at the pc! Consequently the blinds are usually down!
I have my trusty tower-fan for company today!

Twiglet said...

Gosh there are lot of early birds today!! Guess they will all want to be free to watch the footie this aft!!!!!!! Have a great day Julia - love the little easel.

Sarah said...

Back to my usual spot well down the list today LOL and exhibiting the push back trait too

Chrissie said...

Hi Julia (waving)
Now see, this was the sort of piccie I wanted to take. I obviously need lots more practice with a camera!
Love those hearts and waiting to see the finished suitcase.

Lavinia said...

Hiya Julia!! OOOo sunny spot! Looks like you have been a busy bee as usual! Just spotted some letters on your desk? What you going to do with them I wonder? Have a great week in the lovely weather!

Stressed Stamper said...

Cold - what!...love those hearts - love WOYWW thanks for keeping it going

Jingle said...

Oh, I love my coated scissors, too!!! I just forget and grab other ones and end up with a sticky mess! Your workspace looks fabulous! Busy with exciting activity!

Vicki said...

hi miss j,

i'll be back joining in next week, things are a little hectic here - we've not abandoned WOYWW!!! see you soon xxx

Tracey said...

Lovin your hearts Julia, your tag is fab too, now are you feeling brave enough to tackle those suitcases, altering, distressing etc doesn't come easy to me either, can sit for hours and it still never seems as good as some of the fabby pieces I see, but the most important is that I've enjoyed myself.
xx

Darcy said...

Certainly wasn't cold here, it's been roasting all night and all morning,making me feel quite ill. I don't do well in the heat. I love that you are getting into altering and grunge-but not-quite-grunge lol You do know we are all sitting waiting for the suitcase to get done now!

Biscuitlid said...

what's that little woodblock |I spy at the back with WOYWW on it? What are your plans for that then or did I blink and miss it already?

Looks very sunny and I'm in full agreement of the push back theory. Why put everything away to do something else to get it all out again? That's why I'm doing my workshop prep on the dining table so I can leave my stash be!!

Love
Victoria

Leo said...

Wow very sunny. I've been alfresco posting with the aid of WiFi. :-)

Gez said...

Hi Julia sorry I can't join in the fun today! My camera has given up the ghost!
Good Luck with the suitcase.xx
I have a very large suitcase that needs filling for Beijing next weekend... yours looks much more inviting. :)
Looking forward to blog hopping later. Hugs, Gez.xx

Dawn said...

I also notice my little gift! (and I hid mine so it wouldn't be in the phot0 ha ha)I will have to have a nosey back as not been around much this week (you know me the sun and I are friends not that I sit in it) I love being out in the light! so will have to have a week catch up to see what you have been doing with these hearts!

Love Dawn xx

Linda Elbourne said...

It is great to be back and blog hopping desks :0) I can see your thingie and just wanted to say Thank you soooooooooo much for my thingie ... it was the very best part of my coming home mail :0)
I have just unpacked a very large suitcase ... it was much more fun than usual I can tell you :0)

JoZart said...

Have always loved spying on your desk and have at last taken the plunge to fess up to mine. It might have startling results... Let's hope! Thanks for the inspiration,
Jozarty

Carmen said...

Good grief - cold? I was melting last night - ended up changing into my jammies at 7pm as my jeans were to warm. Trouble is when I sleep I like a blanket on me - no matter the weather. Partly because the mozzies find me extremely tasty and partly because I feel more secure and snuggly and thus sleepy if I'm all covered up - so have to prepare to melt. We must maybe have it warmer here in kent.

craftytrog said...

A busy desk Julia! Looking forward to seeing what you do with the suitcase!
Alison xx

sparklygirl-Tina said...

Thought I would join in the fun with you this week!

Kathryn said...

Morning! Posting in jammies with java, per usual for me. If I'm home all day I don't get dressed until right before hubs gets home! Why bother. I missed last week (really missed). I had to catch up on your posts and I LOVE your hearts!!! I'm not sure of your prices in US dollars but it can't be nearly enough for those beauties!
Have a great week!
hugs!
kat

Hugs
Brenda

Nicki (LittleTed) said...

Oh, your desk looks so interesting compared to mine! 'Fraid I just can't cope with the push-back method though, I've got to clear everything away between projects - I think I've got the kind of mojo that needs a lot of room to circulate!!

Nicki, xx

Jane said...

That suitcase is so cute!

Suzi said...

Hi Julie, thanks for visiting my blog. The nesti I used for Anya is a Nellie's multi frame No. MFD 007 (Nellie Snellen) she does lots of shapes and they are half the price of Nestabilities.

Andrea - Wales, UK said...

Wow...very bright and early this morning, by the time you are reading this you are probably back in your nightie!!
Hope you finished your chopping and counting.

Bettythebaglady said...

Eeh oop Julia. I kicked the Hero Arts habit a while ago as you can probably tell from the age of my stamps. I saw one of those stamps-a 1996 Penny Black on Ebay a while ago and it had been bid up to about £10. Decided I didn't really want to weed out some stamps as I do still like them. I am a Stampin' Up junkie now I'm afraid. Love BettyXXX

Georgia said...

Hi Julie!
I love your idea of the workdesk! This is my first week on WOYWW but I am really looking forward to doing it every week!

I have been enjoying lurking for a few weeks but have taken the plunge & have linked my first time Wednesday Workdesk post !!
Thanks for hosting the project !

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

I keep getting all these messages about people not being able to show their easels. I sure hope I didn't do anything wrong by letting the cat (not Bleubeard) out of the bag.

Paper and Ribbons said...

Sorry i'm late! The tag is gorgeous, I think we both sound quite similar when it comes to distressing! I must get some of those teflon scissors, I am tired of having to wipe sticky stuff off them!

Kay said...

Eeeek! It's Wednesday?!?!! I seriously forgot, sorry :( I will visit some desks anyway but I have only just got in from work and am waaaay too tired to hunt out the camera and post my desk x

Sunshine Girl said...

Cant believe I commented on everyone's blog last week but not yours! so sorry - love your messy desk and think your ideas about naughty words is great - I remember years ago my friend and I went to a craft fayre (turned out to be jumble sale) where she was selling painted stones - we had the letters P I S O F so we improvised and put them out with another letter S in there and another letter F on the end - we had hours of fun giggling about our "display" not one person noticed either! Oh happy days.

Sunshine Girl said...

Oooh I too have those two adorable little suitcases - have gessoed one but not touched the other one yet. What are you going to do with yours? might just cover mine with brown paper and be done.
