What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 86

Well well, Julia Dunnit! Are you ill? Are you out of stock of stash? No. See, what happened is that I tidied a bit after making a card featuring stripes and then because it's only half an hour till supper, I thought I'd take advantage of the oven being on. Huh? Stay with me - you can just see the two blocks of Fimo on the table - it is a bit like looking into the sun, sorry about the flash. Can you see the green square in front of the Fimo? It's one of the new moulds from Sarah at Crafty Creations - you may have seen her on the telly, you'll certainly have seen her desk on your WOYWW rounds. Well, I can't show you the results because they're all in the oven, (see - there was a point!) but I'll show and tell eventually - you know me, can't resist a chance to brag. Not many stamps to clean in the basket - wrestling for room with another bag of sweeties - Miss Dunnit successfully getting around me for something by buying me bananas! The inevitable empty cup of tea and a freshly mounted set of Paper Artsy on the left. Marvellous but not overly creative would probably sum this up. Show me up then! Photo your desk, upload it to your blog and link here - let's see what you're up to!

Happy wednesday x

Hels Sheridan said...

I got an oven too ... it is just for baking Fimo isn't it? Only someone was spreading rumours saying that you can use it for food... I think that they were on a wind up though LOL Neat and tidy desk Julia... I have still got my halo on... wondering if it will choke me eventually :O)) x

The Paper Princess said...

Wow, don't be surprised if you find Legend lounging on YOUR space this week! Happy WOYWW to you!

That cup of tea looks inviting, even if it is nearly gone. And that desk is unbelievable. I'd be bragging about it, let alone the polymer clay in the oven. I hope your weather is good, and things are going well. It looks like you had a nice bit of time on your hands this week, or maybe it was because you had to move that desk so Mr. D could get through the doors. Happy WOYWW, dear friend.

Carola Bartz said...

Wow Julia, I think I've never seen your desk like this. I had to rub my eyes... yes, indeed, tidy!!

voodoo vixen said...

OK... it was the little banana sweets that did it... I haven't a clue what else was on your desk because all I can think of is those sweets - I love them and Miss Dunnit could have whatever she wanted if she kept me supplied with them!! I will have to return to see what was baking...

Pam said...

Ha Ha Julia, no showing you up, but you are so far above me that I'll have to be reading this thru again! And please don't tell me that you are so tall that you are not standing on a chair for this one - no boobies showing tho, so bully for you. Hope your getaway was spectacular, as those fimo square suprises no doubt will be!

Sherry Goodloe said...

Nice and tidy and waiting to be filled with what you're baking up in that oven of yours! *smiles*

JoZart said...

It loos like you've given up on crafting.... and gone on to cooking! Tidy space and we are all waiting for the results of the cook in.

From the granny in waiting!

Biscuitlid said...

ooooooooooooh eeeeh Fimo. not used that for years. Have they improved the smell when it cooks lol? Always used to smoke the kitchen out.

Your desk looks very impressive today, but I need to see what you've created with your Fimo now.

What sweeties are in the pink and yellow bag then? Rhubard and custards? Sherbert pips? Flying saucers? Can't tell!

Love
Victoria

Bluefairy4U said...

Morning Julia, cannot wait to see your Fimo. I use it with the Grandchildren it keep them quiet in the holidays. Very tidy desk I must say. Enjoy your day. Big Hugs JO.

Kate said...

joey said...

Hiya Julia

Elizabeth said...

Hi Julia, I did see Sarah on TV and didn't make the connection. Your desk looks pretty clear to me this week - certainly better than mine:) Elizabeth, Yeah, managed to post earlier this week too - #60

Doone said...

Ooh I've been baking salt dough - much much cheaper than fimo, and it air drys, and it is eco friendly, and you can paint it any colour you like, it is lighter than fimo so easier to use as embellishment/hanging ornaments...then spend the fimo pennies on other things, I know I'm a skinflint...and i know I am irritating but I can occasionally produce pearls....

Airing cupboard stamping said...

Fimo lesson at crop next time? Have linked from stamping blog today x x

Sue said...

Hi hun
lovely tidy desk, never played with fimo, have fun cookin, have great day, happy WOYWW sue,x

GLENDA BROOKS said...

I've never used fimo. Sounds like it might be fun! Sorry, but I had a hard time linking up again. There seems to be something wrong with my fingers this early in the morning! Have a wonderful day!

alexa said...

Looking forward to seeing the results of your 'baking'!

Handmade with Love said...

My goodness there is so much space on your desk,I have never seen that before! lol. Can't wait to see what you do with the fimo, sounds very interesting! Have a great week. Tracey x

nnalorac said...

Cookin it up with Julia! look forward to seeing what you have created. Never used the stuff, if anything like making salt dough items, was great fun. Mines tidy too but for how long, once you get into the swing of things, all ---- breaks loose!! Have a great day. Carolxx

S said...

Out of stash, how can you utter such a possibility, even in jest? Whew, had me worried there for a sec.

HarmonySweetpea said...

So much more visitble desk than my own. But then that's normal for me. My desk at work is the messiest in the office. Have a wonderful wednesday!

Good grief, where has the real Julia gone??????

Jeepers! I was awake at 5:30am (thanks to 1 month old DD) and this post wasn't up... I was awake again at 7:30am (thanks DD!) and there were already 50 entries!

Also, you've now tempted me to go out and buy Fimo! :lol:

Ali

MaggieC said...

Hope you had a great weekend away, with lots of drink and giggles. What a tidy desk, I bet it doesn't stay that way for too long. I look forward to seeing the results of your cookery.

Mrs A. said...

I am so tidy this week I think I need to win a medal or something. Looked all round your desk for the fimo then found it sitting in the middle on the mat.Der! Moulds? Did you mention moulds. I want some of them, I need some of them, I must have some of them. Just off to investigate.Note to self. Must buy more boxes for possible new incoming stash of moulds!!

Debs said...

Oh Julia you tease! lol

Charlene said...

Such a tease you are! I love working with Femo. I use it to make the noses on my Santa elves. Can't wait to see what you do.

judith@poppy cottage said...

Look forward to seeing the Fimo results, I have Fimo sat there, and I've seen some lovely moulds, just never got round to making anything. Judith xx

Spyder said...

I haven't play with fimo or clay in years! Now I really want to go get some... but, I have to drive miles and miles to buy a new tumble-dryer. Your glass mat looks sooo inviting, whyis it my teeth go all eeeeeeeeeeeeeeek when I think of cutting on it?? Happy WOYWW ((Lyn))

Di said...

Hiya! Fimo sounds fun - esp. if I get to use the oven for something other than shrink plastic. Wouldn't want it to go to waste ;) Di x

karen said...

Very neat and tidy desk! Hmmm, what could you be making with the fimo? You have every one on tenterhooks waiting to find out! (I can't believe I just used the word tenterhooks, lol)

Erika said...

I've shown you my desk but I kind of grateful you can't see the rest of my room....yours is far too tidy! LOL

Cath said...

Took a while to find the fimo, I must be going blind!!! Great desk but can the real Julia please come out to play?

Cathx 119 I think

butlersabroad said...

Woohoo, look at me! Number 20! I haven't been that high up the list since last January! All down to the lovely Annette though who linked me up as I was otherwise engaged. Love those banana sweets, I remember getting 10p every Saturday as a tiny tot and being taken to the little newsagents in our village for some sweeties, I'd always have one of those banana thingies in my bag! Never tried Fimo, just don't make anything that looks edible!

lisa said...

Do you know, I try and get posted earlier in the day and still end up further down the list than ever before. Think I'll have to get up at dawn to improve my number!!
Far too tidy today, Julia. It's a good job crafting is happening in the oeven otherwise I'd have thought you were poorly!!
Can't wait to see the Fimo, it's great stuff to play with isn't it. Go and get yourself another cuppa, empty cups are not allowed!!
Hugs Lisa (126!!!!)

Cynthia Eloise said...

an empty cup of tea and a tidy desk, anxious to see what's in the oven.

Pam said...

Tidy desk; this is a rare occurance! Look forward to seeing what you do with the fimo. Enjoy the bananas (one of my favourite!) Hugs Pam x

olive said...

peggy gatto said...

what's for dinner!!!!

Tertia said...

A tidy desk? Two weeks in a row? No, that simply won't do.
You will most definately have to show us what's cooking.
Tertia 137

Barbara Mason said...

My desk or desks are the opposite of yours this week...brain has been going in many directions...help!!! I hope you have a small separate oven for doing crafts -- I am concerned about all those fumey chemicals getting into our food stuffs....
Well, I wnt to sleep last night about 11 in the US and there were 24 entries...woke up & I am # 138!!! WOW!

Sheilagh said...

Looking forward to seeing your baking Julia. I have a little oven for Fimo, hidden somewhere in my shed..lol

Deb said...

wow, Fimo, haven't play with that in ages! hugs debx

LuLu said...

Howdy,

I'm back after missing WOYWW. Been busy working on art - yeah!

I abandoned my polymer clay supplies when I discovered modern scrapbooking in 2001! But I do plan to go back to clay - I have a little relief sculpture in mind for my gallery debut art show on Sep 17 this year.

Please stop by my blog when you have a moment or 2!

Peace,
LuLu

Ohhh clay, thats something I haven't tried yet. I'm sure I'd make a muck of it.
So glad to see another person that puts cream in their tea.

Late to the party...would love to see what you did with the Fimo. I have some, but don't really know what to do with it. lol

Thanks for saying my desk is neat sorta. I like your desk too. The bird cage card is a trial card. I bought the YuduCard Shop for card making and it will take a little practice to get good at it.

I don't even know where my all my clay is - it's been so long since I've played with it...I think you've inspired meto get mine out again!
