What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday? 95


Ok, so call me slightly better organised, and I reiterate - slightly - I've been making my WOYWW anniversary PiF thingy, so have had to clear up a bit in order to keep the secret, well, at least not divulge my rubbish idea too soon! So you see the desk as uncluttered as it needs to be before I start the next thing. And there's a lot of that.... Ludgershall Crop on Saturday..so that's Friday on my hands and knees in front of the paper shelf again. Workshop on Thursday, so that's some cutting and shaping and preparing to do, the summer Card Marathon which is starting to make me panic, and of course, there's a new Workshop list out for my local shop Kraft Crazy, and my name appears more times than it should which means I have samples to come up with on various themes which means of course that my mojo and my courage have shacked up together and taken flight. The light is enhanced by overhead lighting here, but I cannot account for the shakey shot..maybe I should have coffee first!
So are you up for taking part in our second anniverary WOYWW celebration? It's a PiF and you can find details and how to at this post. I can't stress enough that this is a bit of fun and there is no obligation to join in the PiF, you can still join in the WOYWW madness on that day - and any other Wednesday!
Meanwhile, show us what you're up to this week - photo your desk/lap tray/floor (Helen - you have a buddy!!) and post it to your blog. Link here and we'll pop by. We'd love to. Don't mind if some of us are astonishingly late, though, huh.

Tidy looking desk today, even if it is cheating cos you hid your anniversary PIF (not started one yet...) But your basked of stamps to clean has - erm - grown!
I cannot believe there is more than one of us reduced to working on the floor. Must look out very carefully on my tour!

Carola Bartz said...

Gosh, you ARE a busy lady! But you know, it will all work out fine - at least that's my experience. So please don't panic!

Blimey! That looks awfully tidy... where did you put it all? LOL I am sure you work wonderfully when under pressure Julia... you seem to get enough accomplished!!

That's looking might spic and span mam! You will be fine with the workshops...I would be glad to be in your company even if you demo a folded tea-towel. Just be you - there's more mojo in your hands than you think...

Dear Julia

It is so much fun to see your desk go from totally chaotic one week to nice and tidy the next (even if it's because you're "hiding" stuff from us!)

Have a great week and look forward to next week's peek!

scrappystickyinkymess said...

OMG. I think I lost a week somehow. It is this Saturday isn't it? Have you SEEN my W?? I think I better get sorted and fast or I'll be twiddling my thumbs and making cups of tea all day.

So, are you #1 for the purposes of the PIF? Cause you don't reallypost, do you? Just wondering...

See you Saturday!

Marjo said...

Hi Julia,

I know I'm in trouble now, your workspace is clean....Yikes!! Now I know I better get on my PIF, the weeks are just wizzing by way to fast. I noticed what I thought was a WOYWW wooden stamp on one of the blogs last week. I was told it wasn't a stamp but was made by your hubby..do you have any left????

Have a great WOYWW. BUcnhes of hugs Marjo

Roban Studio said...

Julia, is that your desk? Naah, that must an impostor. Looks good to me. You could try using a tripod to get rid of camera shake....but then again, coffee is more fun. Happy WOYWW! #26

Rachel said...

Great desk. Lovely and neat and organised. And this week I don't hate you for it! I am jealous about all the teaching you'll be doing. I really must find somewhere near by to teach. Good luck and have heaps of fun. (And if I see your mojo or your courage I'll send them on home to you.)

cheers, Rachel, #64

I don't think I have ever seen your space so tidy Julia....Tell me where did you find that tidy Fairy...and does she do the whole house or just your desk?

S said...

I see you and I are both in the tidy camp this week. I'm up extra early and still only at 74, gotta figure out how to get in the first 10, without moving across the ocean.

Cath said...

Great looking desk but can we see under it please? lol Coming over to UK next week for my birthday but wont get chance to see you this time, shame as I would love to of come to the workshops again.

Stamping 4 Pleasure said...

Eek! Whose desk does this really belong to? C'mon own up. Bring back the real Julia's desk . . . this is an imposter! Although that stamp basket looks familiar . . . .

Hugs from a Calm Sandra! x

Doone said...

that is a very yellow piece of paper/card on your desk, is the PIF underneath?

Fuchsia said...

Desk looks nice and neat !

Gez said...

Hi Julia you sound busy, busy, busy this week.. have fun at the crop. Love your desk.. I fuzzed my eyes over your basket of stamps & it didn't look too bad at all!! ;)

Charli said...

Wow Julia, your desk is very neat today. Although judging by your basket of stamps, you've been having lots of fun lately!

Thank you for your kind words last week; I took your advice and after ignoring my craft stuff my mojo came back full of appologies lol!

JoZart said...

That's merely a temporary situation and it will soon be a riot of creativity especially with the forthcoming craftiness going on. Have a great crop!
Thanks for your thoughts, Julia! It all helps.

Kate said...

Maybe it' seeing that desk so tidy that's given you the shakes? Gad you have had some Pif inspiration, I'm still thinking.

** Kate **

Carolyn Phillips said...

That is a very tidy desk for all that busy-ness that is going on for you.
Looking forward to the pif..I think, still racking my brains and have no more than a tiny germ of an idea.

sharingthepassion said...

Wow so tidy looks great. Happy WOYWW

Theresa said...

Suspiciously tidy again!

Helen said...

This looks very neat and tidy and makes mine look messy (not difficult) even though I'd made a SUPER HUGE effort to tidy up this week!

It's the first time I'm adding my name here. I was looking for a while now, but this morning I jumped...

K said...

That is a rather tidy desk you have there.
Loving the PIF idea, & it gives plenty of time to not only get my thinking cap on but to make something as well :)

Elizabeth said...

Yes, a really tidy desk this week and a bit of tease too. I'm thinking about what to do for the PiF but so far nothing concrete has come the the old grey cells. Off to take a look at some of the other desks now. Elizabeth x #96

Nelly said...

I think I spend more time cleaning up my messes than I do making them. Glad to be back on the WOYWW blog. I haven't been around in a while. I have to go read about your pif idea. Happy Wednesday!

Neil said...

Far too tidy .... what's going on? I bet you have two desks, one to show and one to work!

Scrapcollectr said...

(Huff, puff, gasp) I made it! I'm off to read and enjoy all your posts....

SDCrafts said...

I think I need to have a lie down, Julia - a tidy desk AND all those classes, demos and crops! What an output of work that represents. I am sure your mojo is just gathering ideas ready to get you back on track. And, ah, the mention of Ludgershall again - I am going to have to come along one day and crop in Gran's memory. If you have a member living at 15 Linden Close, it will be perfect.

thanks for letting me see your desk!

Craft Addicts - Tracy Evans said...

Lovely view of the garden from your desk and very tidy today too. Thanks for your comments , the terracotta pot at the back of my desk is a clay pot my daughter made for me and the green container is my water pot and the piece at the front of my desk is a mini top hat for a challenge. Tracy x

sandra de said...

Nice little garden view from your very tidy desk. I'm PIFing as well and have started and hidden PIF. Can't wait to see what you have hiding under your paper.

GLENDA BROOKS said...

Life has just got in my way this week and so I cannot play with you guys today! I really miss this but will try and visit as many of the blogs as I can. I'll try to be back next week!

Amazing desk this week, at least when you compare it to last weeks! Like Glenda I'm (unfortunately) too busy this week, deadlines loom tomorrow, but will try and pop in to see a few folks.

Starla said...

HOLY MOLY! That seems to be an awefully tidy desk for all that is on your schedule! (and for the record....I think your mojo and courage have decided to make a "three-some" as I'm now guessing that is where MY mojo has taken run off to!!

NO! You, a tidy desk...but I have been learning from the master the art of balancing stash and crafting in a diddy space! Is it contagious? Do we need to tidy ours now?!

Kyla ;-)

Chrissy said...

That is a clean desk! :) Mine is not so clean! :)

Ohhh Snap said...

Sounds like you need to build a little house for your mojo to hide in so it doesn't need to run away. I have faith you'll be able to find enough mojo for everything you need to do :D. #130
