What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday? 60!

This is Becky's desk..she doesn't have a blog, (yet) and wanted to take part. She has a Stampin Up! page but they're a bit sniffy about non SU stuff - so for now, we'll post her pics here. Here's what she has to say:
Welcome to my desk! It is actually pretty tidy since I cleared up after my last crafting session. You can see the tag that is (almost) finished for the Compendium of Curiosities Challenge and the new label maker to finish said tag. I also have another (almost) finished project...that seems to be a theme... made from an idea borrowed from Terri at itsintheink.blogspot.com thanks Terri! It's good to finally be a non-lurker! :)
One thing we must work out is the time diff Becky - it's 6.15pm here - I think you're going to have to send meyour Tuesday desk!

This is a scheduled post dear interweb. I'm typing at bedtime on Tuesday, because on Wednesday morning at about the time I habitually post my WOYWW, I'm anticipating that I will still be in bed, joined by my daughter, the bed strewn with wrapping paper while she gloats over some birthday gifts. It's like Christmas; our room gets messed and paper strewn. Hers doesn't. Do you think when she started this tradition some years ago (almost as soon as she could get out of her own bed) that the avoidance of tidying her room was the motivation? I wouldn't be surprised! Happy birthday beloved daughter, seventeen and still not up a chimney - you never had it so good.
So my desk! I know, you can see the surface and I'm not even on holiday! See, I made a card last night but after taking it to work, was moved to clear up before I tackle some rather unseasonal cards. There's to be an announcement over at 2 Scrap Ladies soon, about a Christmas Card making Marathon day, so I have to come up with my share of the goods, and a clear desk will - apparently -really help my creative process. Clear except for the basket of waiting to be cleaned, and the box of scraps on the left. Looks like an advert for Scotch, huh, but promise that it was just a convenient place to stick it. (geddit?)

So inspire me then, show off your desk, workspace, tray, floorspace - wherever you work today. We wanna see what you've got and what you're doing. Link in here and we'll visit. Sometimes, it takes more than a day to visit - be patient!

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

I have tried three times to leave a message, and each time it says something about conflicting messages being sent. Looks like everyone wants to get their two cents in.

Happy Birthday to Miss Dunnit. I hope she enjoys her day and her presents.

Love your tidy desk this week. Now that you have less time to spend in your craft room, being organized becomes a time saver. OK, I forgot who I'm talking to (grin). Happy WOYWW the big SIX OH!

Jennie said...

Sam said...

Happy birthday to your daughter Julia and I love the fact that at her age she still comes into your room and unwraps all her presents - brilliant. Nice and tidy this week hun. I've not got a lot going on this week, my table is much the same as it has been for the last couple of weeks, so I've spread out somewhere else.......

TinaB said...

Hey Julia!

Happy birthday to your daughter!

Your desk looks very tidy lol! whats going on :-) xx

Doone said...

Happy Birthday to Mr & Mrs Dunnits Diddit (Miss Dunnit)

we do the same - every one comes and sits on our bed (huge) whilst the Birthdayer wreaks havoc - the Boys ( I am a Lone female in our irregular household) all say its the best space to do it - but not a one of them clears up the mess!

I do not envy you your Chrimbo tasks - I'm holding out till Sept , I am, I am, I am - after all I have a book to write in August....

Darcy said...

oooo How very tidy, Happy Birthday to Miss.D. my son has been doing the same for years, leaving our room littered with wrapping paper and cards, obv taking any money that fell out with him!!! Doesn't look like you are using that ATG much, or is that a new roll of glue in there?

Pam said...

Happy Birthday Miss Dunnit, funny we have the same tradition never thought about it being to mess my bedroom! Nice tidy desk and its nice to be back!!

Pam x

SDCrafts said...

HI Julia - lovely desk! One question - is the Scotch ATG worth the money - does it last a long time as opposed to say a Stix 2 tape runner x how many? Would really like to know! Have you reviewed it anywhere on your blog?

downrightcrafty said...

Birthday wishes for the little one, and hope you have a lovely messy bedroom sort of a 10/10 on the messy scale
Hugs Kate xx

Tracy Evans said...

Morning Julia, Happy Birthday to your daughter, hope she has a fab day, oh to be 17 again LOL. Bit late posting this morning as I've been up since 4am and now struggling with tiredness.

Have a lovely day, oh and we have the same tradition in our house, the wrapping paper and presents are alwasy in our room. Tracy Evans x

hugs judex

Bettythebaglady said...

Crikey Six OH and I've been doing it for 15 posts-that's a quarter-wow. Happy birthday Miss Dunnit. I think we should all buy shares in 3M's with the number of tape guns we've been buying! Yes I bought another one this week (for DH) who am I kidding?. It's to use with 6mm tape. By the way Julia if you rest it on it's back it sits happily on its own. Saw that on WOYWW from someone. Hugs BettyXXX

ikki said...

Morning Julia, wow is this really your desk? You said you would do it, and by jove you done it! Well done - how does it feel to be a tidy WOYWW'er? Happy Birthday daughter, your climbing in bed habit reminds me of our daughter and Christmas morning - oh happy days and lovely memories. Enjoy your day, and thanks for your support and encouragement. ikki x

Chrissie said...

How lovely to have a friend to share a birthday with who also happens to be your daughter!
Happy, happy day Miss D... and the sun is shining too!
Have a great day all of you!
Chrissie

JoZart said...

Amazingly tidy desk but we can see the creative evidence sidled away. It will make up for the state of the bedroom after the birthday girl has finished unwrapping those gifts. Have a happy day Missy Dunnit!
Julia, I can see you are becoming glued to your ATG..... watch out, you two will soon become joined at the hip....at the very least, it doesn't stray far once you get used to controlling it!
Enjoy your day with the birthday gal!
Jo x

Kathleen said...

Hi Julia,
happy birthday Miss Dunnit. Yep your work space is tidy,not sure it will stay that way for long. Tidy makes me feel uncomfortable hurry up and make a mess.

Twiglet said...

Happy Birthday Miss Dunnit - I have to tell you Julia - my daughter M is 30 and still likes to sit on our bed to open her pressies!!!

Biscuitlid said...

Serendipity Stamping said...

Very neatly done this week. My first time adding my name to the list, love looking at everyones spaces. Thought maybe this would keep a better check on my own space. I am one of those people who cannot think with clutter, just ask my girlfriends who worked with me for years,, LOL.

Rosie said...

Well many happy returns to Miss Dunnit, but why might she be up a chimbly?? Can't belief the blank canvas which is your desk today - it just doesn't look right! Put something on it - QUICK!!

WW said...

I just added my name to the list for the very first time. I'm so happy to be part of the party, I've been reading woyww posts for awhile and have wanted to participate, but I haven't been creating lately. Well, realizing I had some swaps due soon, changed that.
I hope to keep participating and will be visiting everyone's blogs later in the week.

Kathy said...

You really shouldn't be "wearing" that "Creatively Untidy" button today, Julia - your desk looks immaculately creative!

Happy Birthday to Ms Dunnit, I hope you all enjoy celebrating the day together.

I've not added my blog to Mr L. today because I don't have a snowball's chance of getting round many desks this week - but I still did my photo and I've popped it on my blog

Jodene said...

I hope that your dd had a wonderful birthday Julia! We have the same tradition in our house. In fact my dd's birthday is next Monday, so like you my bedroom will look the same way :)
I don't know in our case if it's that she wants to keep her room clean, but that she will get her gifts quicker if she comes to us rather than waiting for us to wake up. LOL

Yours Artfully said...

Happy, Happy Birthday to Missie Dunnit. And as for your desk....well, you are so good at the tidying thing, I've got the kettle on for you so you can come and fix my mess next.

Scrapcollectr said...

Hugs Kate xx

itsamistry said...

Hope your daughter is enjoying her birthday. It's my dads birthday today to. Wish I could get my desk to look half as tidy at that when I put things away.

I'm glad I found this blogg as I've made new friends and found some of my previous craft/art friends.

Hope your daughter is having a lovely birthday, Julia!

I am ducking out of WOYWW this week I'm afraid as just not enough hours in the day atm & not feeling at my best - may try and get round a few desks though :-)

Doone said...

Hi Becki - love your 'man tool shed' type storage space - I really think it helps to be able to see stuff and just grab it...

mckinkle said...

I got quite a shock when I first looked in! I thought you'd relocated from that gorgeous garden view! Thankfully all was explained, Beckys desk is great, just as I like to see one, busy busy busy!

Hope you all have a wonderful family day Julia!
Happy Birthday to junior D! Driving lesson today maybe?!

Hi Becky *waves* Loving all the colours on your desk there. Verrrry interesting. Looking forward to seeing you next week too :)

Julia :P I did ALLLLL the desks this week and in record time! Am so chuffed, not done it in months. Was still beaten by MILES by Linda though. Tchaw!

I'd love to take you up on your loan offer. I keep looking at it but it's the price that makes me almost have a heart attack on the spot ;) This might decide me. Thank you lovely person x x x

Vixykins said...

Hehe I've got a 17 year old and she sulks if I don't get her a chocolate advent calender to count down xmas! Happy birthday to your little miss!

jodpea said...

I do have trouble getting me knees under the desk, well observed! Altho in fairness I tend to curl at least one leg up on the chair (very bad for my back, I know!). Eww, no crocs are evil! I think its meant to be like a chip & dip tray, I got it from Matalan, its shaped like a butterfly n i put my odds n sods in it!

itsamistry said...

Thanks for popping over to my place Julia. This is the first time that dad has forgotten his birthday lol.

The pots of paints are by folksy (acrylic). I tried some over in america at the artfest amd decided that I liked the matt finish of them (I didn't take any of my stuff so had to borrow other peoples).

I've posted a few pics of the girls work from the workshop on Thursday.
