What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 130

Ah, mine is a double work in progress today.  See the bright red letter and number?  (Really, if you can't, you may wanna get an eye test, seriously.)  They are for a Christmas present.  They are freshly painted and dry, but sitting on scraps of paper that I've used to cover another project I'm working on...that's not a huge secret, more that I needed to discuss the G3 with Miss Dunnit, so that went on top.  That's how it is in Julia world.  No need to tidy until the thing on top falls off.  And that's why there appears to be nothing on the table that actually could 'go' with the G3...mostly it's stuff I was using for the scrapbook LO underneath. See the ATG gun - reloaded and in constant re-use....I may accuse it of being fiddly (and it is), but that won't change my love for it.  You can see at right my tidy basket of stamps waiting to be put away...it is starting to behave badly - that is, driving me mad.  I wish I could manage without acrylic stamps I really do.
Share with us your workdesk won't you?  Paper crafts, any crafts, work, home, floor, desk, dedicated space or not...we'd like to see what you're up to.  Upload to your blog and link it here.  Please don't link if you aren't showing a workspace or work in progress, and put WOYWW in the title.  Please don't link if all you have for us to read is an advertisement for another site or a litany of product links.  No fair.  It's the Season of Goodwill - something that we WOYWWers have shared for 130 weeks non-stop - please don't make it need rules, it's meant to be fun!

Phew I could see the 'G3' and I'm going for an eye test today! So the ATG gun is fiddly - I've been sitting on the fence about getting one of those for ages.. :)

jude said...

voodoo vixen said...

I can see your gorgeous red G3 without my specs!! LOL Can't wait to see what you do with them... they look lovely at the moment but cannot think of the relevance to anything... so will be waiting to find out!!

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

Gotta' admit. This looks really clean and tidy. Guess it's stacked high, though. And yes, even I can see those big red things! Have a super WOYWW, dear friend. Guess you can tell, but I'm number 7 this week.

MvM-design said...

Secret projects everywhere!! :))) That's December!
Happy WOYWW ;-)

Cathy said...

Blimey I was nearly dazzled by that G3 - a tag bright at this time in the morning!!!
Wondering what you are going to do with them???!!
Hugs
Cathy xx


Could you delete me at 2 please - linked last week's desk instead of this week's!!! Ta very muchly!

Bubbles said...

I'll take on your acrylic stamps if you take over me having to change a socket from a 1:12 scale to a 1:24 scale (dolls house). Grrr! *lol*
Always such a wonderful view onto your desk.... ripe for a rummage and a bit of pillaging :D

Pam said...

Gotta tell ya...I planted cucumbers this summer and then made the most incredible cucumber pickles which took me days soaked in hot candies. Your G3 makes me hungry based on this thought. They tasted delish at out tday dinner, so I'm hoping this works out for you as well. Please keep us posted. I'm thinking it will be a hit.

Gabrielle said...

Happy Wednesday! Love your basket of stamps to be put away - mainly as I smugly put mine away!! Very curious as to what the G3 is for... more clues needed! Thank you for being our wonderful host again x

Crafting Time said...

I can confirm I can see the G3 (thank goodness!)I would love to know what's for and what it stands for though.
Have a lovely crafty week Julia x

RosA said...

You can't miss the G3, nothing much wrong with my eyes (at present) and now I am very curious. Hope we can see what you do with them?

Morti said...

Cor - not going to overlook those in a hurry, are ya? LOL. They look fab! I do have a bit of a thing for big letters, and my H O M E is still in pride of place!
Hope you have a good week - we must all meet up again soon!

Electra said...

Hah! You made my day! Your tidy basket is starting to misbehave now, is it? Julia, I don't even HAVE a tidy basket! lol

Neil said...

Wow, those letters are so vivid they could use them at a lighthouse if the bulb blew, you'd be able to see them for MILES! Hope you have a fabby week.

inkypinkycraft said...

Gosh they are some big, bright letters, a great and busy desk!happy woyww trace x

Jennie -The Artistic Stamper said...

Loving the G3.. couldn't miss those on a dark night! LOL
Desk looks productive even so....
Happy woywwing!

Sue from Oregon said...

I am so curious on what that G3 is all about! I am sure it is going to be super fun!!!

Ann B said...

Curiouser and curiouser, but I love a little tease. Go on tell, what are you doing with those fluorescent letters?

Ann B said...

PS Forgot to say that you 'need' the pink ATG gun now I got mine this week and the colours look great together

CRAFTY WOMBLE said...

Cunning, I like it, cover table with pieces of paper and strategically place some artwork' I love my ATG gun Crimble cards would have taken way longer without it or messy glue would have to have dried. I feel like I've made it into the world mow you are a following thanks, made me day :)

Toodles and Binks (Galaxy Girl from UK STampers) said...

Man alive that's a bright start to my day ... thought it was some kind of advert for a political convention at first though.

I love my ATG too, but they are bulky to have handing around - I feel I need mine on some kind of springy coil hanging from within reach, that I can just pull down and use and then leave it hanging there waiting on me - am I getting a bit carried away?

Hugs

Kay

VonnyK said...

You really can't miss that G3, just love to see what they are for. I only just made it, the pool man finally came and it's now 5pm wednesday for me, at least it's early for all of you.

Dragon said...

Woo, can't miss that colour mrs. woman!!! They really are very large too... what a cunning plan to pile stuff up and up... what happens when it totters off?? Can't bear to think!! Have a great week
Love and light

kath said...

you've got me pondering this morning miss julia...G3 what can that be for and do I see fabby Basic Grey alphabet stickers...will just have to pop back and see what you are making...big hugs kath xxx

Helen said...

Can't begin to imagine what you intend to do with G3... great looking desk, miss!

Annie said...

I'm sat here trying to work out what G3 could be for....or is it 3G? 3rd girlfriend? 3 goldfish? 3G phone? Ok Ok I give up. Will wait patiently til you do a show and tell....hope you do now :-)
Hugs,
A x

Sylvia/LittleTreasures said...

Happy WOYWW..it's about my bedtime and G3 has some little man pasted on there too! You've a fun working messy desk, so enjoy creating soon. Have a great week

Twiglet said...

Yes I can definitely see it so maybe I don't need that eye test after all. Have fun. x Jo

Shaz in Oz.CalligraphyCards said...

Had to laugh at all the comments above, Julia - it is always interesting to see what everyone else has to say - am running late but actually was early just linking late tricky time zones feel for folk in US they must never feel up with the rest of us..now 3G or G3 yes we all see it but what it means that is another question, blessings and happy WOYWW! Shaz in oz.x #31

Lulabelle said...

Sorry I have no clue what the 3G means either! Are you gonna put us out our missery and let us in on it Julia? Then we can all go 'Ahh yes of course', (slap our foreheads, tell ourselves how dumb we are,) and say 'Of course I KNEW that'!
Great stuff on your desk and I spy lots under it too!!!

Di said...

Oh go on, spill the beans about that G3 - it's really got folk wondering now! Nice to snoop round your desk, it's always fascinating - mine is waaaaay too tidy and therefore boring this week :( Di xx

Susan Flynn said...

Great philosophy Julia re no need to tidy unless it falls off! I think I shall adopt that. Is your daughter in the government?? Shouldn't it be G8??? Mmmmm I'm intrigued!

Franka Benjaminsen said...

Your G3 looks fab, but I wonder what you want to make with it. Your philosophy about cleaning your desk is, at this time of year, one of the best!
Have a happy WOYWW. xFranka

joanneck said...

Just what happened to me this week. Some Alterations dies fell off the shelf, which is just above my head!!! so I had to tidy. I 'gasped' at least 3 times - G3!!!!

sarahp said...

Busy busy as always I see...My desk is drowning under the strain.!!
Love the beauty bright orange letters/numbers what a great project..
Always a pleasure to drop by .
Thanks Sarah p xx *52

MrsC.x said...

hmmm intriged as to what the letters are for??

Airing cupboard stamping said...

G3 oh what's that for then? Lovely shade of orange though. What a gorgeous shade of pink the Stazon is loving that.

Looking forward to seeing you on Sunday x x

Lisa-Jane said...

G3? What G3? Only joking! Well what intrigue you have caused! My first thought was that you were going to a protest about capitalism and then I thought maybe they are a pop group, and then I thought maybe it is not G3 at all and that when you put them together they actually make a face. Or not...

lisa said...

Well, i've passed the first test of the day and just managed to spot the G3 by peering at the photo!!!!
Like Lisa-Jane I thought maybe you were joining the stikers and holding a world meeting or something!!!!
Happy WOYWW
Hugs Lisax #61

April said...

Hmmmm glad I'm not the only one that doesn't know what the G3 may be for...I was thinking it would be something very obvious that I was oblivious to :o) looking forward to seeing how it turns out. Lot's on your desk this week, makes me wanna av a peek through that pile on the left, looks interesting :o) x April @63

kyla at 64 said...

G3-I thought that was a political summit!!!!!! Lovely creative desk again.

Shoshi said...

Having just dragged myself out of bed at 9.15 a.m. to make sure I at least make double digits on WOYWW, and just managing to remember to grab my glasses on the way down, I can admit to being able to see the G3 (just.) It's a bit small, though, Julia, and not quite bright enough... (Perhaps things will appear clearer by lunch time, after I've had a chance to retreat back under the duvet with a cup of tea). I'm really intruiged to know what it's for! It would be dead mean of you not to tell us, though, Julia, because you are the instigator of the Nosiest Blog Hop on the Web and you've got us all positively drooling with nosiness.

Apart from the G3, that's a good messy desk to get us all going this week! Still nothing of note on mine, I've afraid (still suffering from the lurgy) but at least I've got a bit of knitting and crochet to report this week!

Have a really happy WOYWW, and thanks for all you do!!

Hugs, Shoshi #62

Jacqueline said...

Hmm ... What G3 ? Where ? ... lol.... I can't wait to see that project finished! I have a big letter for myself ready to be decorated but not sure what I want to do with it yet! Got as far as painting it and that's all.... I may go for the 'steampunk' look! (again) lol.

Great to see such 'creativity' in action though! I gave my desk a fright this week and actually cleared it!!! :o

Take care and Happy WOYWW

Kate said...

Hate it, hate it when it all falls off the top, happens far too often in my workspace.

Should we get why it's G3 or are we guessing? Is she to be a teacher and its the class name?

Nancy Wethington said...

Love the letter and number!

Linda Elbourne said...

Could n't see the G or the 3 ... who are you again??? In fact ... Where am I???
Did you miss me??? Feels good to be back XXX

famfa said...

I wonder what that will be. Love the paper with the letters on. What's that for?

misteejay said...

Saw the G3 even without my lens' or glasses so can't wait to see what you are going to do with them.

Jingle said...

G3? I have no idea what you are talking about...where is there a G3? HA! I kid, I kid! LOL! It looks really cool, though!

Lisa said...

Great shapes and fabulous vibrant colours Julia.

Caatje said...

Oops, I accidentally left the link for this week on an older woyww post. But now I left it here as well (just don't know how to remove the wrong one, sorry). Anyways, wonderful messy desk with all those goodies on top. And the G3 is hard to miss. ;-)

Emma E said...

I'm wondering what the G3 is for too ... hmmmm!

Craftychris said...

Wow, I love the bright letters! Someone will be very lucky this Christmas!! This is the first time I have discovered WOYWW being brand new blogger - its good fun. Thank you

JB said...

I love big letters. This is my first time for posting about my space. Am looking forward to checking out WOYWW often now.

Jacqui said...

Whimcees said...

Hello!

WOW! is all I can say! It is only a bit past 8:30 AM here in this part of WI and I am 94 on the list! I don't think I have ever seen so many so early! And 130 weeks - congratulations!

I look forward to seeing your G3 in place. Wishing you a happy day!

Hugs,

Barbara Diane

Lisa said...

Oops the first link of mine takes you to an old WOYWW link...d'oh!

Carolyn Phillips said...

Can't wait to see what the G£ is all about, and since I could see it maybe I don't need that eye test after all.

Lovely to see a desk that is almost as messy as mine. Maybe I can quell the guilty feelings for another project or two.

Debs Willis said...

Messy crafters rule!! If it hasn't collapsed it is not officially a crapalanche!

G3 is cute - think I know who that's for :-0)

Happy WOYWW - from number 100!!!

Bellaidea said...

Can not wait :)
Wany to know all story.
I1m busy with tags those days.

Sunshine Girl said...

Lovely busy desk there Julia! is it G3 or 3G I wonder?

Angi [at] MakingMayhem said...

Love those big ol' letters! I'm doing something similar with paper mache letters...I saw someone's post on how to make them look like galvanized steel. Fingers crossed it turns out!

Always love seeing your desk and playing along.

Happy Wednesday!

Hands to Work, Hearts to God said...

Hi Julia, what I'm wondering is how you can open the cabinet doors with all that stuff in front of it! But then who am I to make a comment like that! I have a lot of blocked cabinet doors in m y craft room! Patsy from

minnie_mac said...

Yes, the multi-layer is a good alternative to the push it back and pile it high.

MaggieC said...

I never get tired of reading your blog and looking at all the varied things on your desk. It is fun trying to work out exactly what you are up to.

Elizabeth said...

Hi Julia, that G3 is sooooo intriguing, what does it signify, I wonder. So admired your new Christmas looks that I've given my blog the seasonal makeover too. Oh, and I am so late this week, nearly didn't make it :) Elizabeth x #111

Anne said...

As my 4year old granddaughter would say 'that's a big un' or I suppose 'those are big un's ' we not sure where she got this expression from. My desk is very boring this week. I've not done anything on it since last week. Happy WOYWW Annex

butlersabroad said...

Ooh err missus, love the new Christmas look you've got going on, but all your side bits are now bottom bits!! Sounds like the story of my life but we won't go there! G3 is going to make an amazingly Christmassy political statement!! Make sure you wrap it up in eco friendly paper!

Hugs
Brenda

JoZart said...

G3?? When's the summit then? You've got me intrigued so intrigued so that's all I can see on your desk!!!
Love JoZarty x ????

Spyder said...

ahh! where's my comment? I can't see it....maybe, I should go to spec' savers! Anyway, better two comments than none...even if i do garble and talk about a load of rubbish..Nice letter, even nicer number...G3...? You can buy a G3 Panasonic at Tescos...or a G3 mag for, ladies who like other ladies...
or it could be a geeky gaming radio station... Can't wait to see what it will be! have a good week!

LuLu said...

Howdy Julia,

Your desk looks super busy. I haven't graduated to a ATG yet - still using double-sided tape from the office supply store and Tombow runners. But lot's of my scrapping buddies use ATGs.

This week I'm trying to organize and tidy up AGAIN, still!

Would love for you to stop by my blog when you have a moment or 2.

Peace,
LuLu

Scrappekatten said...

Hello Julia
My Sizzix is almost to big because I dont have a lot of space. But last February I collected presents for my birthday, mothers day and Valentine - so my DH baught me this one. The next thing I wish for is a bigger house - I need more place for scrapping stash or the Sizzix-he-he

Love the blue nature card on the previous post, its beautiful. And your so right, in your next post, we need time for ourselves so we don't get burned out by crimbo, and maybe this year I shouldn't pack xmas craft away on christmas eve, but enjoy creating on the 12 days of crimbo. :-) kezzy x
