What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 61

OK interweb, here's Becky's workdesk....we (she) got the time difference down and so you get a full day to study and admire!








Hello WOYWWers! I tried really hard, but could only get to the first 46 of you last week... maybe this week I won't be distracted by having car stereos installed, or grocery shopping.On my desk starting on the left is the beginnings of a circle pop up mini scrapbook, two owls for a card, and chicken stamps to be scanned into the computer and promptly blown up. Well, not the exploding kind of blown up, just made larger. I will start at 47 this week and hopefully be able to circle back around to the beginning. Thanks for showing your work spaces and projects, I've gotten some good ideas so far!






As for mine..mess again! Photos taken early; today is really going to be a day that counts! *sounds familiar* Anyway, pride of place is the lovely lovely hanging bin that Lunch Lady Jan made for me. The cherry fabric is just fab, huh. But she hated making it and even used a 'B' word. A very unusual occurrence. If you knew her, you would think she were sitting next to a saint, see. So I'm lucky huh - I have the bin. Thanks hugely to Josephine T who has her own version on her WOYWW from a couple of weeks ago - I used it to beat Jan into 'sewing just for me' mode - worked a treat! The rest of my desk is a bit of a disgrace really, but my word, I'm definitely happy about having found some time to make the mess!

So there we are - show us your desk too; link and leave a comment here and we'll all visit. Please forgive me for being slow to visit; I will do it, but at snail's pace!

Spyder said...

I don't think your lovely bin would be big enough for me! of course, silly me, it isn't for rubbish,is it, it's for putting stuff that hasn't got a real home..anyway it's lovely! and your desk looks very neat this week, have a good day...I'm late, as usual... I don't have to any why I'm late any more, it's just taken that 'something' happens in blogland on Wednesdays!

Jennie said...

Becky's desk looks brill! and I NEED a hanging bin, especially with cherries on it!! Mind you where I would put it is another matter! Mind you I do have one where you put your mug in it as well as a bin bag, and having just looked at it, one of the elemnts has gone missing! now where is that I wonder.. *wanders off into her stuff to look for it!*

Nancy said...

Julia - Love that cute bin and the cherry fabric is divine.

Becky - Love the creative space you have and it is so lovely for you to join us.

sasa said...

There is mess - and there is your own mess - the best sort! And now you have a bin too - so it sounds like a good balance to me...

Tracy Evans said...

Love the card on your desk with the vases and that yummy tag to the right and the hanging bin is a fantastic idea. I spotted some yummy papers too on the last pic and did I spot some coloured cellotape which I thought was interesting. Very creative craft spaces. Have a lovely day, Tracy Evans x

Stressed Stamper said...

I do snail pace commenting too...fab desk as always and nice to be home from hol - think I have lost some mojo though....need to find it quickly

Chrissie said...

Your big yellow thingy is there again.... do I need one? I just bought 30 x 20m tape runners for 99p each. I get through them like a hot knife through butter mind... but so much quicker than DST.
Thanks for the tip about tilting up the Copic box. I'll try that right now!
Chrissie

Yvonne said...

I think this WOYWW is gone mad, lol finding it hard to get to every one too. but like you say , if you start from where you left off, you may just get somewhere.
Loving the bin, how handy is that ...so glad you put me right on this blowing up .. was about to start a "SAVE THE CHICKEN", walk.

Don't blow up the chickens - you'll be picking up feathers for the rest of your life !!

At least that way you have something for any mood you're in !!! Have a great Wednesday Ali xx

The Crafty Goat Girl said...

Hi Julia, its so lovely that WOYWW is so popular, but it takes me all day Wed to get around the everyone, lol! Its my new hobby!

Great desks today, I really love your cherry bin, I have a smaller version in black/white dots, they are so useful! Love your material especially, good enough to eat!

I love the look of Becky's desk, I could sit there and play all day, given the chance as it is the hols, I love my girls but cant wait for some ME time again.

Have a lovely and great weekend, take care Heidi xx

MOONFIRE DESIGNS said...

I remembered it's Wednesday today so I made it this week!! Love the bin, fab idea.

Joanne said...

Well! I've tried to work it out but can't, so please tell me what that blue and pink machine is making all the coloured lines. Never come across that so far.
Luv Joanne xx

JoZart said...

Good morning Julia! I thought my desk was worse than usual and such a mess till I spied your's. Now I on't feel so bad....Yeah!!!
Great stuff going on there. I have one of those fab bins but it's too nice to use and not big enough, as you can see by the state of my floor. I promised another WOYWWer I'd show the floor and now I'm getting sorry that I fessed up!
Jo x

Violets Corner said...

Oh I love the hanging bin, I'll try to make something like that too as I have a small bin standing at the workdesk. Could use the space for crafting instead!
The creative mess is fab, I'll try to catch my mess some day too!

Love Becky's card with the vases!

Hugs
Maarit

Sandra said...

I love the hanging bin too . . . I want one too! Thanks to everyone who visited me last week. Will try and get to a few more of you this week.

Hugs, Sandra (aka Chocolat is NOT just 4 Breakfast)

peggy aplSEEDS said...

you're right about being happy to have the time to make the mess!

jonaks said...

its a nice bin! its ok to be full of mess and creative!

Phree said...

Becky's desk looks great - lots of lovely stash in that piccy. Your new bin is just the job, what a gorgous fabric!

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

I feel like I've stepped onto a different planet. Maybe because I fell asleep, or maybe it's because I'm so late getting my link up this week, but who is Becky? What am I missing here?

And is that vellum I see on your desk? Whatever it is, it is gorgeous.

I'm off to visit a few desks before the day takes over. I'm going to try to get to everyone this week. I can't seem to get to the last of the group and by the time I reach Saturday, it almost seems too late. Two heat records in one week make it nearly impossible to do anything, but I'm trying. Have a great WOYWW.

Twiglet said...

Hey 2 desks for the price of one - that would save time as we went round visiting wouldn't it!! Love Becky's neat tool board and your cherry bin is fab!!

Doone said...

Hi Becky - love your talking heads and/image in the first photo - I thought I had done the rounds by Friday last week - then realised I'd not returned to some that were loading the pages v. slowly - so it took me until Sunday¬!

But very worthwhile - so many inspiring people there are out there....

Gez said...

Hi Julia it's been a while!! Both FABBY desks. I loves your cherry bin. :D
Have a great day.xx

minnie_mac said...

I see that you used that spectacular cherry bin as a diversionary tactic before quietly slipping in that your desk was a mess. It's not actually that much of a mess. Not as much as mine anyway.

Marilyn

Foil Play said...

Two great desks - your new bin is lovely Julia and you have some very lush looking paper and acetate on your desk :-)

Heather x said...

Two great desk pics! Love the bin also :0)
Mr Linky has gone awol for maintainance so I will have to link my blog later.....I wrote the post at 1.30 am lol.
Have a great day hun,
*hugs* Heather x

judith@poppy cottage said...

Love the bin Julia, the fabric is so cheery too! A messy desk is a productive desk, I can't show you mine, DT stuff, but I've shown pics of the other bits today, Judith xx

vix24 said...

Two lovely desks there!
I've not shown mine today but have posted a kind of reply to last weeks.

mckinkle said...

Hello Julia! Had to wait 'til I had a desk to be worthy of appearing!
LOVE that cherry fabric, so fresh and funky but bin is way too small for me!! Obviously you dont make the same number of errors that I do!

Becky, its lovely to see your desk again, Im loving the 2 for the price of 1!

Happy Wednesday everyone!
Keryn x

jodpea said...

Am I the only one that doesn't understand the bin??! What is the cube? Is it a weight or something? Mister blumming Linky has vanished and I was all prepared, in a scout-like manner, to be good this week and get visiting! :S

jodpea said...

Doh! He's back

carol said...

Two great workdesks, and I love the bin, the problem is I would fill that up in a day, I will add my oooooh soooo neat desk when Mr linky is up and running again x

Have a good day x

Aaww you're lucky having that bin, I wouldn't want to use it though (I know I'd get it grubby).

FlipSyde said...

I like the 'b' bin. The cherry fabric gets me, I think it's mad phat groovin :)
I think I've counted three sets of 'more spare scissors' on the above desk. Hahaha! Why do our scissors disappear in the moment, and then when we snap a picture are like, "oh, there those little suckers are..."
Happy WOYWW, Julia!
Amy

Scrapping With Sherry said...

I would like to have some kind of hanging bin for trash but even when I had a trash can under my desk I still seem to throw stuff on the floor and then it's just part of the clean up. I am a very messy crafter! But hey I can be I am the one that cleans it up...

Take Care~ Sherry

BTW~ Thank you for allowing me to join your link party.

Well Julia, hope I solved my time problem, but don't bet on it. Lots of doings on both desks. Don't forget to show the circle album when completed and love the cherry bin. Really want to see those exploding chickens too!!

OK, now I've joined on both blogs, we'll see if my computer will cooperate with me and let me link in. My computer hates blogger for some reason.

TinaB said...

Hi Julia xx Thanks for another great week of WOYWW xxx I would love for you to pop over to my blog for a chance to win my candy xx

Alisonw30 said...

Exploding chickens eh, that would be messy! ;-) I want that bin, mine is currently a carrier bag on the floor which I keep missing, it would be much better to have something attached to my desk. I'm going to start at 1 this week and see how many desks I get round - I think my record is about 35, never manage to get any further! Have a good week x

Tracey said...

Good evening Julia, your bin is lush, is lovely lunch lady Jan taking orders!!!! Am ducking from flying debris. LOL.

Carmen said...

Hi Julia and Becky :D Late starter this week and no desk for me. It's still clear and after last week wasn't sure how to make it more interesting and I wasn't going down SOME of the routes suggested on my blog last week. Not unless you want to start a Womens Institute style WOYWW version calendar Julia. No. I thought not ;)

So off I toddle cuppa in hand to look at the desks. LOOOOOOOVE the bin Julia, gorgeous pattern on the fabric.

Linda said...

I love your bin, the fabric is great!
