What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 116

Well, there's nothing to brag about, and no picture to show. Depsite having 2 laptops and a PC, I can't find a way to upload from my camera card and email from my phone...none of us are configured properly...dysfunctional or what!  
I am in the middle of folding and creasing various cards and papers as preparation for a Paper Engineering workshop, so far, so many folds, not so many finished samples!  Ah, but when the PC is fixed I will show and tell of my creaseless pain.

So go on, even from a room that you can't see,imagine my mess and put me to shame - show  your desk by uploading a pic to your blog and link here - it's fun, free and surprisingly interesting.  Now you can't say that about eveything you have to do on a Wednesday, huh!

Oh, hecky thump! Technology! Not to worry, hopefully you will soon be back to normal.

sasa said...

Sorry the digital world is throwing a tantrum...but a little use of the imagination is also fun and good for the mind. How messy or tidy a desk do you want me to envisage ?

Jennie -The Artistic Stamper said...

Fun and Free! I like that! and am sitting here imagining your desk and the open window...imagination is always good :)

I was afraid WOYWW would be cancelled this week, but I see the Linky and everything is working except for the obligatory photos and possible e-mails. I know you will be with us again soon, though. And we will be thinking about you in the meantime.

Sorry for your woes! Hope everything is back to normal asap!

So long as you didn't get arrested for offing the PC guy, and the photoless post is not an attempt to hide a messy crime scene (death by bone folder?) I suppose we can deal. :)

Do you think it is payback time for your PC guy? I am visualising lots of folded cards on your desk!!

Sue from Oregon said...

Oh dear...don't even get me started on techie stuff...that's what I have kids for LOL! Best of luck on your folding and techie issues as well!

Spyder said...

true, true, hospital parking fees astronomical! (I hope that's spelt right!)
It's like looking at your craft room, with the lights off...and wearing dark glasses, and weirdly enough, I can still picture it! Stable door open and folded stuff piled to one side. Have a great day.
Happy WOYWW
((Lyn))

Jona Panesa said...

i'm sure you can fix it right away. try to get a card reader it helps sometimes in times of need! can't imagine all the cards lying around your desk now. happy wednesday!

CRAFTY WOMBLE said...

Doone said...

dysfunctional?

for most people one would say a picture speaks a thousand words, But tongue in cheek Mrs D, you are one of those that don't need the picture!

ScrappnBee said...

Paper engineering sounds so fun! Oh, I wish that I could peek! Oh Well! Lost the laptop in June and was internetless (is that a word) for almost 2 weeks, so I can feel your pain! Glad that you were able to get WOYWW up reguardless of the technical dificulties! -Amanda

Airing cupboard stamping said...

Morning! How are you coping without it?? Are you getting more done though? Looking forward to seeing the cards.

Hope your feeling better today x x

famfa said...

Oh dear, I hope you get it all sorted out soon. I didn't have much to show this week. What did we do before all this technology took over our lives? I love the cup cake.

Cardarian said...

Karen said...

How tidy is that - no photo just an imaginary 'look see' from all of us in WOYWW land! I know how you feel, having just come through the other side of no internet/email access and it's like your right arm has been cut off. I hope they can re-sew it back on for you and you're with us again soon!

Kate said...

Imagining each person's desk - taking WOYWW to a whole new dimension. For mine just imagine mess!

** Kate **

Elizabeth said...

Really strange not to see a pic of your desk this week ... hope you get your laptop returned in full working order pdq :) I haven't figured out how to send a photo from my mobile phone yet ... possibly a club of only two in the technological age! Elizabeth x #60

Franka Benjaminsen said...

Oh no.... it's not funny when computers stop working. But I can imagine how your desk looks like and hope your PC works well soon.

Erika said...

Julia my desk is always in a muddle infact my whole room is....in my defence the rest of the house isn't too bad, LOL.
Happy crafting!
Erika.

Dotty A said...

Oh Julia don't dispair... now we have something to look forward to seeing when your back in business!!!!!!!!

Scrapcollectr said...

I can commiserate. My phone doesn't want to talk to my computer so phone pics are locked down. Just another challenge! Looking forward to seeing your folding techniques when the dust clears. Have a nice Wednesday!

Jingle said...

Oh, dear! If I was there I could probably help you, but not from afar! I can envision your happy mess, though! :-) Happy Wednesday, Julia!

Helen said...

Oh, I forgot to comment - well, 6am is just too early, lol! I hope you get your pc/laptop sorted and can upload pics soon - it is such a pain!
I am picturing your workdesk - immaculate, basket-waiting-to-clean-stamps is empty, everything spick and span.... oh, not??? LOL!

Bella said...

It would seem you are not the only one having uploading of photo problems, my card reader decided to give up the ghost last night so I have brought my one from work to be able to upload my desk for today or it just isn't Wednesday!!! You see the lengths to which we will go to be able to participate in the global desk hop and snoop!

Holly said...

Sometimes I think Computers are really out to get us all..lol Mine acts up at the worst possible moments. That's okay though, we can all imagine what's going on with your desk and pretend. I see a great cluttered, busy desk with lots of fun projects going on.

Di said...

I've made a right pigs ear of WOYWW linking! First I posted the wrong link at 67 - then I posted what I thought was the right link later on with a typo in the link name. I'm off to the briar patch! Di xx

Susan said...

Missed your piccie this week hope you get your problems sorted with your nice man xx

Yogi said...

well sheesh... looking forward to seeing it eventually. BIG GRIN happy folding

Charlene said...

Miss your happy mess and the view from your window!

Sylvia/LittleTreasures said...

Good luck with your frustrations. Cute verbage even without the pictures..it's like fall here, and as much as I love that season I am no where near ready to give up summer. We just didn't have much of it. Have fun at your workshop. Enjoy WOYWW

Mary said...

Oh, don't you hate technical issues, and why is it they usually happen when your so busy you don't have time to figure it out.... Good luck! I'll be looking forward to seeing your project and that tidy desk of yours! Have a great week....

Sarah said...

There's no photo from me either this week, I'm charging the camera battery and if I wait for it there would be no post LOL
Hope that your technological problems are sorted soon

Shoshi said...

Hi Julia, sorry to hear you've got techie problems which I hope are resolved soon, but glad to hear they haven't rendered you completely unable to be creative! Frustrating for you, all the same.

Pam said...

Sounds like you are very busy, hope you sort your techie issues out soon. Hugs Pamx

gypsyczech said...

I feel your pain! I had trouble trying to capture your WOYWW badge. Maybe I just need a new computer! So happy I found your blog. dix---

Craftgirl said...

So next week a pile of stuff to view. LOL. Hope you get sorted out with the techie problems. It is frustrating.

Anne said...

Cynthia Eloise said...

i didn't get a picture of my desk this week either. although i do have the beginnings of a new project. summer is just to short and there isn't enough time.

TheFairyyellowbugQueen said...

Well you have my imagination going that is FOR SURE! *smiles* and *hugs* and *putting out the fixin' it up vibe to the universe to get your technology all working again*! :) Norma

KatzElbows said...

I wouldn't say surprisingly interesting. I'd say very interesting, not to mention intriguing and inspiring!

Twiglet said...

Well here we are - Friday and still no pic! Hope the technology hasn't had complete breakdown - or is your desk such a tip that you daren't let us see! Best of luck with it. x Jo
