What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 81

Gawd, sorry about the lack of Mr Linky - it was entirely a human error..indeed, that human might even have been me....told you I had a memory problem! That's what I get for trying to schedule and be organised!!
The Christmas edition! Good grief already! Do not be afraid or alarmed, do not fall in a faint or choke on your snack, worse, do not spray coffee over the keyboard. My desk is (relatively) tidy!
I don't know if you can tell from the awkward angle, but the basket of stamps waiting to be cleaned is full of....just cleaned acrylic blocks and some other bits waiting to be put away! I know! I'm in as much shock as you are. I didn't enjoy it, there is no therapy for me in the cleaning and putting away, but hey, Wipso, Twiglet, at least when you get here we can just have coffee and chat! I've made a couple more of the tags we made in a workshop last week; but that's all I've done, and it was driven entirely by need. Need for tags, not need for creativity! I'm scheduling this post because I'm doing a Helen, and setting off for work at OhMyGoshO'Clock. Loads to do and not enough hours this week for sure. But by this afternoon, I'll have crept out of work and down to Tidworth for a cuppa with Shopkeeper Gal. One last hit of potential buying before the holiday and a session of diary planning for some more workshops...the fun part of the day, for sure. Christmas Party tonight too - I wonder if that will finally help me to get' in the mood'. Probably. Well that and a pint of Bailey's should do the trick! Happy day bods, stay warm stay focused and it'll all be done....and probably perfect!

Here's a link to my blog . I will check back later to see if Mr Linky is here.

Must say your workspace is looking a little tidy. I definitely plan on cleaning mine soon. Of course my definition of soon doesn't really mean anytime in the near future...

Wipso said...

So Mr Linky has a hangover and hasn't turned up today then? :-) Please be assured I wont be round for coffee today and I'm still feeling pretty s***.

Hugs,

Merry Christmas Julia! And it was a bit of a treat to be no 20, I'm usually up there at 120! Always a silver lining ;)

Vicki B in OP NY said...

Merry Christmas and happy holidays. i've never been lower than #95 - maybe I should get up early more often. lol
Julia, thanks for providing us with the chance to have a look around at other desks. Makes me feel alive to travel at cyber-speed!

MaggieC said...

I find a very tidy desk is most unnerving. I do need some stuff around to help the creative juices to flow. Have a wonderful Christmas, everyone, and I hope the snow does not cause too many problems for you all. Enjoy all your new crafting goodies, with a nice drink and a lovely box of chocolates.

Helen said...

Have a great Christmas! Love the tags.

Love that you've decked out your blog for Christmas - can't believe I'm #31. On tags, I was saved this year by all the free online downloads I came across without even trying. Merry Christmas!

Dragon said...

Well no wonder I am so high up the linky!!! Yoiu are all here already!!!! I don't feel christmasy either, Julia, but I do hope you enjoy the party and I envy your desk... if you visit you will see a sorry site - ie NO ROOM ON THE DESK!!!

You and Mr. Linky are the clever ones Julia! Why giving the triple digiters a chance to go first was just brilliant! What a nice Christmas gift. Great job on the desk - how'd you get time to do that? A Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night (again;-)!

Wow love your desk 'tidy' and I think the idea of a pint of baileys it would certainly get me in the mood - have a great Christmas

LouDotMac said...

I would like to wish a merry Christmas and all the best for the new year for you and your family!!
I love your new (or maybe not so new?) blog design, very festive.
How tidy is your desk? I'm shocked, but probably not as shocked as you are! Hehe, I'm liking the look of those tags, are they penguins?
Off to write up my post now - will include a link for my (attempt at) the Sew Easy review. xo

Holly #59 said...

Happy Christmas Julia!!! I love the X-mas look of your blog, I've been away for a few weeks.. I hate putting stuff away too, I say get a new basket and then you can just put the dirty stuff in that basket and have a clean one and a dirty one..lol

Sherry Goodloe said...

Merry Christmas to you Julia.
I have sprayed coffee over my computer keyboard AND screen at work before. No, it's not pretty.

If I told you I don't clean my stamps would we not be friends? LOL!

I'm #50 this week. Please stop by and take a peek when you get a chance.

dandelion dreamer said...

Happy Christmas Julia and I hope the party get you in the mood. ENJOY!! Moira x

akilli melek said...

Well, I know exactly how you feel about cleaning! I am not used to this much even for spring cleaning! Have to say I'm impressed with your stamp cleaning.

Love the cute tags. Hope you enjoy the party tonight.

It's a clean slate for the new year's projects lol. Love that purple ink! Have a great Christmas :D

Spyder said...

heehhe!! I've been practising! (On my closed blog Spyder's other corner 2) But...it's doing the same as it does on Spyder's corner, the old back ground is stll there, even with out the code! Spyder's corner hasn't got a code for the background, I took it out last year, the new background shows up for about 5 seconds and then the old one over rides it (delightful dots and Debbiecrafts dot com on the other blog).. anyway...I now have a bell!!!!but no one will see it, as I'm too much of a scaredy cat to try it for ''real!' Thank you for the link!

butlersabroad said...
