What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday? 98


Well, here we are again..week 98 and still you aren't bored? Well, if you are, could you kindly hang on until after week 104, please? After all, quite a few of us have come up with great ideas for the anniversary PiF (explained HERE)...it would be a shame to miss that week!! As you know, generally, there are few rules for WOYWW, but in considering the PiF, it seems fair to ask you to have it ready to send on the anniversary, rather than delaying the gratification and fun by making the gift after the event. Make sense? Hope so!
So this week's desk.....almost untouched by human hand. These baskets of stuff are the ingredients per card from last Thursday's workshop. Proof indeed that real life and holidays have taken me away from my desk and my computer too often this week. The yellow Monster is back in its upright position (better than a holder to take up yet more space, honestly, Annette!) and the desk tidy is empty because I cleaned and put away the stamps. I know, of all the things to have found time to do! You can see the Artistic Stamper logo too - I lucked out and won a new stamp in Jennie's blog launches and felt the best way to give her my address was to treat myself to a small order....so I did....now I have 2 Distress Stains to try and two gorgeous new stamps - I'll show you soon. Photo taken in full sun....about 6.45 on Tuesday evening - this is another scheduled post, very grown up things to be done on Wednesday morning.
Oh and PS - loved the number of you that left ironic notes about my comment last week about a well written and spell checked post!!
So there we are then - easy as that. Upload a pic onto your blog of your current work desk - crafty or otherwise, we like to see what you've got going on, and then link it here. Eventually, we'll visit. Be patient and don't fret about numbers....we won't need food!

It all looks fairly tidy Julia... an empty stamps to be washed box too.... gosh you are doing well!!
The stands don't take up room.... ok, maybe in your case it would as you never seem to have very much of it spare on your desk!! LOL

The Paper Princess said...

Woo hoo - new stamps! Of course, I am still stuck on your previous post - you know I want to see "the room of shame"! Keep those counts coming - no matter how I plan, I always seem to fall in with the last minute crew. Have a fabulous WOYWW, a wonderful week, and a splendid Easter weekend!

Helen said...

What could be more grown up that being up with the lark at 6 in the morning to link up here, I want to know more!! Hope you have a good day whatever, Julia.

Jennie -The Artistic Stamper said...

ooh centre stage! lolol they arrived safely. I have just read your previous post about MIss Dunnit's bedroom, and luckily I don't have that problem, as mine has left home.. but I haven't, and wondered if you could come round and give me 20 mins a day to remove my stuff from my room, because mt inability to get rid of stuff needs a helping hand!
Happy woywwing!

JoZart said...

I just signed in as No 2 and in the space of writing I ended up as No 8 with sneaky people pipping me out of the highest place I've ever managed. Back off to bed for an hour or two... only got up for the loo!
Congrats to you, busy Julia on cleaning all your stamps.. more than I've done! Not far off the party for 104 so I wonder will everyone be pristine, mega tidy, ..... Nah!
Love JoZarty x

Roban Studio said...

Your desk is calling you...Julia..Julia...can you here it's mournful sound? Well I guess cleaning and organizing Miss Dunnit's domain is a good thing. Happy WOYWW.

Nicky said...

Enjoy your grown up day - still looking for inspiration for the pif - have a great Wednesday and a Happy Easter x

Hands to Work, Hearts to God said...

Hi Julia, how lovely that you won something. I am very industrious with joining these blog candy giveaways but hardly win anything. And I'm ready with my PIF but you never know with me, I may change my mind and make something else. Thank you for this party every Wednesday! Patsy from
HeARTworks

Dragon said...

It's looking good, and the monster is fab... I SO want one, so where can I get one, please??? Looking forward to seeing your new stash.. I had some this week, but afraid I have still more coming... It's an addiction, isn't it... Perhaps we need SA - stampers anonymous !!! Tee hee.... Thanks so much for this place!!!

Carola Bartz said...

Wow, the basket is empty! Very well done. Isn't it a grand feeling to have clean stamps around? The monster though really is a monster...

Sue said...

Hi Julia
the sunshine always drags me away from my desk, can't stay in when the suns out! Enjoy your new stash when you have time to play,my pif is all set to go!!
Have great day, happy WOYWW, sue,x

Elaine Harding said...

Apologies for misnomer - for past 4 weeks I've mispelt your WOYWW as WOWWW! It's been rectified now. Had a class last night and the girls told me I'd got it wrong! Oops! What a brill idea you've conceived-membership keeps growing! I love to pop in and out, and it does take all week before there's another new round to delight me!

peggy aplSEEDS said...

congratulations on your win and enjoy your new goodies. of course, you will! looking forward to the PIF!

Sue from Oregon said...

My desk was such a shameful mess, that I just had to tidy it up...first time in ages...probably the last time in a long time it will be this clean! Our holidays are coming up this week, so not sure what will get done!

scrappystickyinkymess said...

My WOYWW early morning ritual is almost comical. I am usually up early, and my scheduled post already there, so it's just a link and a comment. But, my iPad seems to gain time, meaning i dont know when 6AM really is, and the linking process is cumbersome, but I can't comment from my desktop browser, So I link from my desktop, if I'm up for coffee or the loo, then back to bed and the pad to comment. Click Post Comment button at least 3 times and pray it doesn't disappear rather than redisplaying with a red box (and no idea what that means, but it always appears) and paste my comment and try again if it does. Ridiculous. Then the fun bit of a quick browse over breakfast, and the commenting as I can squeeze it in all day.

The things we do to join your party, Mrs. Dunnit! Bored? Not blinkin' likely.

Bella said...

Bored? I only just found you guys last week and it was such fun! I have loved seeing everyones desks in various stages of flux...makes me feel better about my chaos, that it is not just my creative space that looks like a bomb has gone off and that I am the only person in the house who knows where everything is on it at any given time...

kath said...

woohooo julia..love having my early morning snoop into your crafty space...big cheers for the empty "must clean stamps" basket and yippee Distress Inks to play with....hugs kath xxx

Minxy said...

Morning Julia, It's good your desk is in the same state, I missed it last week so now know what it looked like LOL
Sorry real life has taken over, hope you have chance to play with your new stash soon :D
Have a great day xx
Minxy x

okienurse said...

Still think that the desk is an awesome testimony to how busy and creative all of us out here are! I don't think I would accomplish much if I cleared it off! I read the previous post about the room of doom and will share that I too have a room like that. My son will be moving home from Germany in 5 weeks and I will ship boxes of his stuff to him and pack the heavier when I go to visit in June or July! Off to make the rounds. Vickie #28

Stacie said...

I tried to clear off my work desk, but it was filled up again within hours. Oh well...a clean desk is not a busy desk!

akilli melek said...

ooh stamps and inks - what a fab idea. Now all you need to do is find time to play.

Wipso said...

A clear desk tidy?....good to see it's still working it's magic :-)
Adult activity first thing in a morning?....Well! I ask you! :-) :-) :-)
Have a great week.

Ali said...

Your desk looks even messier than mine! Woohoo! :D

Hope the Mr Linky works for me this week... last week it seemed to but when I checked back hours later my name and link weren't there so I had to re-enter and ended up waaaaaaay down the list!

misteejay said...

Congrats on your win Julia - look forward to seeing it in use.

Toni :o)

Spyder said...

Beatrice said...

I am not bored at all and have only been joining in for a few weeks but I have learned lots from reading other peeps posts and also picked up lots of crafty tips and yes I have also been tempted when I have seen some new stamps or stash but I love Wednesdays. Will try to get my brain into gear this week as I agree it should be made and ready to post - time will tell if inspiration strikes

Sarah said...

Looking quiet organised - but just look at that sunshine creeping through - don't ya just love April Sunshine!!!

Hugs Sarah x x x

karen said...

Ooh, new stamps and Distress stains? I look forward to seeing what magic you will create!
Thank you for hosting this fun and fab blog hop every week!!!
xoxo Karen #43

Angie said...

I keep looking at your yellow monster ....I really want one ...but ... about 4 years ago I got one similar ...it was brilliant until it needed to be refilled. I tried ..DD tried .. several friends tried....it is now at the back of a cupboard ...or in the bin??? ....so it put me off big guns.

Artyjen said...

Love that globe stamp you now have in your stash!
xoxo Sioux

Joanne said...

Oh lucky you winning stamps from one of my favourite suppliers - oops! I won too. Hehe. I think any holiday is an excuse to craft, but as I'm retired, it's the gorgeous sunshine that stops me 'cos I just soak it up. Enjoy the rest of woyww.
Hugs Joanne xx

mariegoodwyn said...

You are lucky winning goodies from Jenny - I have my own yellow monster and have found it quite useful for sticking notes on the back of the front door to remind people of things they don't want to forget - like lunch stuff for work. (I think it worked this morning as I saw the OH heading out with a handful of yoghurts) And it seems to come away clean!... now I'll stop rambling!

I won one of Jenny's stamps as well and it is such a good stamp, a really clear image.

I know what I am going to make for my PIF, I just need to work out the details and actually do it...glad there are still a few weeks left!

April said...

Well done with your win.... new stuff I love it!! :o)

Mrs A. said...

That is soooo unfair. Telling us you have nooooo stamps and nooooooo inks and then not showing us the goodies. We all want to see now!!!!

SueH said...

Oh, you’re so organized Julia!
All those little baskets for each project, but then I guess you have to be if you’re doing classes.
I look forward to seeing what you do with your new stamps and stains.

Lovely messy desk, loads of fun stuff on there.

sandra de said...

Congrats on your blog candy win and of course you have to order something new. No need to explain to woyww's. I did giggle about the room in your previous post. Sounds so familiar, enjoy your sunshine.

Louise said...

DW Peot said...

Oh Fabulous!
It seems Spring Cleaning is in the back of everyone's minds. I'm working on creating my art studio, which I hope will be completed by this Sunday.
Everyone have a great Wednesday! Enjoy the rest of your week too! Hugs!

Holly said...

I hope you can get back to creating again this week.. If there isn't any dust that collected while you were gone then you can be forgiven. Put Stamps away? I started a basket like you have and my husband wonders why they just sit in there and they overflow lol.

Twiglet said...

Late signing in today - out celebrating a birthday!! Have a great day and enjoy this fab weather if you can. x Jo

Little Miss Crafty *Kerri* said...

Hiya, just found this and its a great idea, how do i get the little WOYWW logo onto my page? Copy and paste? I'll get involved today! :)

Lisa-Jane said...

Gah! I posted earlier and forgot to link. Loving being involved in this, thank you for making me feel welcome. I WILL get around to everyone's blogs this week.

Chrissy said...

I just invested in one of those intense adhesive guns...hopes it is worth the space and cost. :)

Angi~Mistress of Mayhem said...

Definitely not bored! Peeved when I can't find or make the time to visit most of the links...I don't know how anyone gets to them all in a day or even two!
Love spreading out the fun for the week! :)

So looking forward to the anniversary post! working on my PIF this weekend...

Happy Hump Day!

Angelfish said...

Ooh we were both lucky enough to win things this week Julia:)

Sherry Edwards said...

I'm number 103 again - maybe that'll be my lucky number - shame the lotto numbers don't go up that high!

Enjoy playing with your new goodies - real life and holidays permitting!

Happy Easter xx

Sam said...

It is sooo nice to see that big shiny thing in the sky again isn't it? Wassit called again?!!!
Late tonight but I hope you don't mind as I have a valid excuse! Please don't give me lines unless you want them stamped, drawn, doodled or embossed! LOL!! I store my pink gun the same way as you do - stands are for whimps!! LOL!!!

Allycat x said...

Love my Yellow Monster too!

kaz said...

Congrats on your win Julia.
We would never get bed of WOYWW I think I speak for everyone when I say we all look forward to Wednesday's, it's a great way to spend that mid week evening having a nose around to see what everyone is doing or has been upto since last Wednesday.
Us WOYWW Crafters will be around for a long time.
New Pic's of my Furbaby on my Blog, you can see how much he has changed, he's Bigger than his Mum and His Dad now, but he's so adorable.

Electra said...

Happy Easter, everyone!!

Mary said...

Hello Julia, Your desk looks like mine (not the one on my blog...that's my workdesk. My planning desk looks like it was hit by a whirl wind. My goal is to get in and clean it, though I do that a lot and it never stays that way long. Well, I'm off to see what the others are up to. I need to read about your anniversary....my goodness, I'd best get moving! Have a wonderful week....

fairy thoughts said...

lucky you winning artistic stamper stuff, i love them. please can someone explain about the yellow monster? is it some kind of tape dispenser?
janet
ps. happy snooping

glitzygirl said...

Sun, you have sun? Well we did here for a while too, I must say. I am impressed with your desk. Looks as good as mine. I am so glad you 'lucked out' and won some stuff, blessings Hilde

Clare /aka/ Mummushka said...

Congrats on your win. I will get me one of those tidy thingies.

Carol Anne said...

My first WOYWW. Hopefully not my last!

LuLu said...

Howdy,
I think you'll enjoy those Distress Stains. I recnetly bought 4 colors and have used them to paint some chipboard. They make painting chipboard bearable for me...

Please spread the word about my 100th Blog Giveaway!

Peace,

My first time playing...The Crooked Stamper made me do it!!!

Sunshine Girl said...

Hope you enjoyed doing your grown up things! have fun playing with the new toys too.

Ciara said...

For some reason I've never stood my pink monster upright but it makes perfect sense really. Gosh that was a dull comment.

I hope you're not planning to do any crafting cos it doesn't look like there's much space there Mrs D!

Kirsty.a said...

Sorry I haven't been around for the last few week, but I have my 104th gift ready

Ohhh Snap said...

My 104th is almost ready :D. I'm usually such a last minute sort of person, I know, shocking to discover that? lol. The workdesk looks great and you do have that empty stamp basket. Belated WOYWW :D.

Darcy said...

I know i havent been here in forever, but my 'thing' for the anniversary is 3/4 made...just need to actually remember to link up on that day now...please remind me lol
