What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday? 99

Well folks, as this is the last one in April (already), it means that that 104, the second anniversary week isn't too far way now. So if you plan to join us for the PiF (detailed here), you need to get your thinking cap on now.
And here's my desk...replete with box of chipboard under a tidy tray, balanced on a notebook.
A basket of dragons that DD hasn't got around to putting on ebay yet, so I've done it, a card in the making, my glasses of course...a couple of them sexy new lie flat EK punches....a new BIGGER button jar. Nothing of any great interest. Unless you want me to riddle up an excuse for having boxes balanced on notebooks etc....then I'll need some time!

Show us your desk and work in progress then, we're wanna see what you're working on and what you've got that we haven't! Try to keep your words short, then we can visit lots of desks. Put a photo on your blog, link it here and visit to your art's content. I thank you. We all thank you.

Beats me how so many people hover over their mouses (mice) at 6 am uk time, lol! Like the look of the basket of dragons... I haven't heard of lie flat punches. Is that a shopping trip calling?! Have a great day Julia.

voodoo vixen said...

There be dragons!! LOL The chipbaord shapes look interesting... but then I have a thing for chipboard and I also love those flat punches... they take up so much less space!!

Spyder said...

Another very bus desk this week, I'm missing mine, not home this week (but only another four days to go)I have a pink glitter/embossing tray thingy, can never get all the stuff back into the jar, as it sticks to it. but because of this there's always enough stuff stuck to it to do another three or more cards...sort of magic! Hope you had a great Easter, happy WOYWW...
dragons? ((Lyn))

Sue from Oregon said...

Hey Julia, thought maybe this week you would show us your favorite TOOL- Would love to see what those jeans look like!

Ali H said...

Hi Julia - at least your desk looks like its seeing some action - rather than gathering dust like mine ! Too much suuny weather = no crafting !! Glad to see I'm not the only one who needs my specs to craft these days !! Ali xx #36

Minxy said...

I can finally say i think my desk is as messy as yours today :OP

Kezzy said...

Love how you have managed to balance everything, lets hope you don't want anything from the bottom quickly!!! Loving your desk this week lots of craftiness going on, i am intrigued about the dragons, why selling them? Kezzy x

okienurse said...

Very busy looking desk this week Julia. Like the looks of the card under your glasses. Found my second pair finally!!! Interesting basket of dragons there! I think my DD has her eye on putting some of my stuff on eBay also! No fear with that one! Thanks for sharing Vickie aka okienurse #37

misteejay said...

Do you now have a stepladder by your desk so that you can take these overhead shots LOL...if not I'll be back thinking of you gingerly balancing on a chair...

Toni xx

Pam said...

I do like the "lie flat" punches they are great for storage I only have a couple at present. Hugs Pam x

Wipso said...

HarmonySweetpea said...

The art of balancing supplies is a great one... until it falls! I know it all too well.

Dotty Jo said...

A basket of Dragons - don't we all wish we had one of those!!!! Happy Wednesday Julia, Jo x BTW, i've got candy until tomorrow at my blog.

Happy Wednesday.

Kim Dellow said...

OOo very interesting bits an pieces! Like the dragons :) Happy WOYWW

alexa said...

Dragons on Ebay? Whatever next! Like the overhead shot, and admiring your balance!

Tertia said...

Some balancing trick you have got going there! Now I am sorry I cleaned my desk to make space, why didn't I just think of balancing things on top?

Shirley Pumpkin said...

Your desk looks great!! lol I love WOYWW, I am so happy you started it.

Good morning, folks! Will pop back to read later - got DH on a mission, loading the car boot to take to the tip! Happy days!! x

Sherry Edwards said...

I'm jealous of your BIGGER button jar! LOL

sandra de said...

I love a stack on a stack (no wonder you need lie flat punches) and who would of thought dragons on ebay. In OZ a tool is a tool must be a US thing.looking forward to 104 but a little anxious re what type of pressie to PIF????

Ciara said...

A basket of dragons? I won't ask!! Those flat punches are brill, did you know all the Stampin' Up ones are flat now too?

Do you rummage through that button jar or tip them all out to find the button you need?

Susan Allan said...

Hi Julia
I have not heard of lie-flat punches either.
Have a good day!
Sue xx

Looks like you have either been busy or intend getting busy!! I haven't crafted all week - getting withdrawal symptoms!

So much going on on your desk today, I'm sure you're keeping really busy, love the bigger button jar

April said...

Oooh a jar of buttons.... this is something I am lacking in my crafty stash, really must sort some out! Lie Flat Punches??? oh dear not seen those before something else that's now calling my name :o)

Sue said...

Angelfish said...

I spy your glasses this week, but where is the big yellow monster? Maybe the dragons chased it away.

Thistleblue said...

Good morning Julia! Hope you're well and having a wonderful day! I haven't been by for a wee while so I thought I'd have a nosey :-) Great looking stash on your desk.

Jane said...

Oooo cute dragons! Will we get to see the finished card?

LOL cathx

Shazsilverwolf said...

Mountainous piles of stuff,crafting dragons- now theres a thought- what more could we want? Shaz #76

Fallingladies said...

Lovely mess, I want to see the dragons better, they look so interesting!

Alicia.R. said...

Hi Julia
Love the super creative desk you have this week. That card also looks quite interesting under it all. I have balancing issues at times, especially when it all ends up on the floor...hence the need for a clean-up on my desk this week.
Till next time
Alicia.R.

RosA said...

Hehehe ... a box of dragons on your desk! I have balancing issues also. Things are always being hidden underneath stuff and then more stuff is inevitably balanced on top. Sometimes it all topples over and I promise to mend my messy ways ... til next time!

Darcy said...

cute dragons. get those buttons sorted. i have mine in Douwe Egberts coffee jars cos i love the push on lids.

running late for a massage will be back later to hop and comment.

Charlene said...

Adorable little dragons...ebay charges a 9% commission, plus PP fees...is it worth it?

leslie (crookedstamper) said...

You people are amateurs. :)

Carol Anne said...

Your desk is so much "craftier" than mine. I just need to get rid of the junk, and replace it with a project in progress!

Kim said...

Good morning! I have to say, I'm intrigued by the lie flat punches!! I don't own many because they take up so much room. Yea! A new reason to go visit the Michael's!!

Sarah Cooper said...

All link-y-loo'd! :O)
Busy, Psycho day ahead... lol.

Esther said...

Cool piles of balancing stuff..Iv'e always got something about to tip over on my desk - this weeks it's stamps! Happy WOYWW, Esther xx

Lisa-Jane said...

Seeing your stack made me smile - I am not alone! I have my buttons in condiment jars, colour coded - how anal is that?! Love my EKS punches, the lie flat business is an added bonus. Take care everyone and enjoy the weekend xx

Beatrice said...

Great creativeness in progress - a button jar sounds great

mariegoodwyn said...

Elizabeth said...

Hi Julia, back after missing a week, and gosh, my desk doesn't look all that different from yours! Like what I can see of the card in process and I like lie-flat punches too - I haven't got any EK but I do have several SU and they are much easier to store. Good to be back. Elizabeth x #108

scrapwordsmom said...

I look forward to Wednesdays now!! Thank you for this!! I love it!

kaz said...

Hi Julia,Wow,a great Busy Desk full of goodies, Haven't heard of the Flat Punches so I will be off having a look online later.

I also see a lovely card in the making amongst your Crafty bits.

Jana said...

I love your new big mouthed button jar. It's very theraputic to just reach in and play with them every so often. Those dragons are adorable. Thanks for hosting again.

Love the balancing act - look forward to the century next week :)

MaggieC said...

I really thought I had already left a comment, but I cannot find it, so apologies for the late contact (weddings, parties, Bank Holidays etc) Those dragons would really appeal to my daughter (Shaz Silverwolf's dsughter-in-law), who is seriously into dragons of all kinds.
