What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 138

Actually, nothing.  Well, loads of stuff of course, but nothing that shows I've moved on from last week..I've just covered it all up with office work, which does not merit a photo on the blog!  So instead, I've been planning and plotting, and here is my lap as at about 9pm last evening.  I did have my feet up on the wooden chest you can just see, but for reasons of anonymity, I put my feet on the floor and sat in the chair as I was taught by my mother. Grainy photo aside, I'm a bit jubilant that you don't get a down shot of my ample bosom and tummy too! This notebook shows stamp codes and ink colour choices - I've been asked to do a workshop for my friend Janet who has a shop in Exmouth and so I'm in planning stages...which is hard.  It involves looking at stamp catalogues.  I know.  
Meanwhile, back in the real world...how goes it with you?  Show us do, how your mojo is allowing your work surface to evolve. Put a pic on your blog, put WOYWW in the post title and link it here.  I have to say that there were so many desks last week that I didn't make it...and blogger was a bit unco-operative too; it was heart-warming to read comments on my way around and discover it wasn't just my computer!  The thing is, I now have to decide - spend the week visiting WOYWW posts, or catchup with your blogs on other days as well...I'm a bit torn!

Love the pic of your very cheerful and fluffy pen... looks like you have had some major writing, rubbing out and re-writing.. obviously choosing ink colours is quite a task!! :)

Katie said...

I love your Hello Kitty pen! I hope the workshop planning goes well. I think I'd be in trouble looking through stamp catalogues...I'd end up spending lots of money I shouldn't!

Beautiful photo and share, Julia - and wait til you see what my WOYWW post is sporting this week!

scrappystickyinkymess said...

Ha! The hardship of browsing catalogs, poor poor you. :) Me? I've been cleaning. Dead boring but necessary. Won't say much cause Blogger hates me. One finger tap typing in the dark is only worth t if the moment actually posts :)

I think I need to go back to bed....coff....splutter. Mojo has definitely taken a hike lately. Love the fluffy pen!

Chrizette said...

Writing with such a cute pen MUST help the creative juices, right? Too cute. The only planning I am doing, is planning a trip to a Scrapbook shop later today - I hear it is HUGE!! Cannot wait!

I have the same problem Julia, workikng hard not to get MY ample bosom and tummy in MY shots. I don't feel so alone now. Thank you.

...the yorkshire fox... said...

Hi Julia...I'm a WOYWW virgin and just so pleased i managed not to fluff it up and send my desk up into the outer solar system...how wonderful you have a workshop to plan, i'm sure you'll leave them wanting more...have a super day...Mel :)

Gabrielle said...

Phff! Mojo! I suspect it's at yours reading stamp catalogues and laughing in my face! Love your planning and plotting - hope you show us what you finally decide on!

jude said...

Hope the planning and organizing goes ok.
Have fab woyww and creative week hugs judex 17

Shaz in Oz.CalligraphyCards said...

ah Julia - there the rub, if you look at stamp catalogues you do get led astray dont you! mm or I do anyway! my desk is bare so mine is a pre-Wednesday shot too. I just adore that pen of yours too! and would be harder to lose - happy planning and happy WOYWW, Shaz in Oz.x #26

okienurse said...

Happy Wednesday Julia! Wasn't all the posts last week awesome! Like you I wasn't able to make it around to all the blogs but I did make it to a lot. I am working on some projects for classes at my friends store but luckily I just go in there and pick out products and tell her to pull them from inventory for the class. I take them home and make the project. Love it. Hope you have a great week. Vickie#27

kay said...

hi julia,have to confess to being a lurker and have been following you a few months now and looking at the blog links,will be brave one day and join in but as i am a bit of a neat freak my desk will be never be very exciting....lol
will you be posting details of the workshop at exmouth as i am only up the road?

Hazel said...

Love the fluffy pen. Hope the planning goes well. x

Bella said...

Well a lap is as good as a desk is it not? Where else is there to work when your desk is as busy as yours is...Happy WOYWW

Sue from Oregon said...

Hello Julia! Always enjoy a laugh or two reading your posts...you can really describe things in and "interesting " way. Also enjoyed your post about the dinner you took Mr and Miss Dunnit too. That would certainly drive me crazzzzzzzzzy. My eyes are too tired for that stuff. I think that may be a sign of age...OH MY!

Sarah said...

That's at least one oh la la pen to be seeking inspiration with! Beware of catalogues and paypal - oh so dangerous! Also sorry - but my link at no.8 is wrong - any chance you could bin it please? Have relinked now. Thanks - may all you dinners be in focus...
Sarah.

Jennie -The Artistic Stamper said...

oh my so organised.. and a very elegeant cushion for the Queen of desks! I also had a major problem last week with blogger, so switched to using Firefox to comment.. mind you even thathad problems!
Have a fun day
xx

ScrappnBee said...

Congrats on the upcomming class. I know what you mean about blogger (it is due to a code upgrade in explorer that blogger has not patched yet to meet. I am glad that I am not the only one whose non internet life makes it hard to come around and visit! Love the fluffy Hello Kitty pen! -Amanda 36

Li'l Pidge said...

Plotting I like.....especially when it concerns stamping and inky fun!
Exmouth eh? Interesting...are you going to the Exeter craft show in Feb?

Kyla

kath said...

love your plotting and planning pic julia and your gorgeous fluffy pencil...hugs kath xxx

Caatje said...

LOL, maybe we should change this thing to what's on your lap wednesday? I thought this week I would ad my link extra early, but I'm amazed at how many people are in front of me. This can only mean one of two things: either they all live in Australia and New Zealand (where the time is ahead of mine)which I doubt, or they all post their stuff on tuesday or in the middle of the night. ;-)

Trish Latimer said...

Oh my...look at the fluffy hello kitty pen! We have a housefull of hello kitty as my smallest daughter loves her, glad to know I'm not alone!! happy WOYWW !!!!

Lunch Lady Jan said...

A list, a fluffy pen and a stamp catalogue - does life get any better?? Loln :D
Hugs, LLJ # 45 xx

Helen said...

I too, love your fluffy pen. And the fancy cushion. Good luck with your planning.

L00py's Craft Creations said...

Oh love the pencil!! glad your organised, lol,my photo is an honest one..............got disorganised lol, happy Wpyww hun, xx

Pauline said...

Ahhh looks all cosy Julia ,I to am amazed at how early people post ,I thought I'd made a little mistake when I linked my blog this week but I think all is ok ! Have a good week

Annie said...

OOer planning....not something I'm very good at. I'm a go with the flow sort of girl but if I had a fluffy pen like that then I just might :-)
Hugs,

Kate said...

Cute pen, bet that's extra inspirational.

misteejay said...

Great photo Julia. Poor you **giggle** having to go through stamp catalogues.

My name is Cindy said...

It is getting big - I only manage a fraction each week but try to split it between old faves and new ones. Poor old you having to look at stamp catalogues, must be hellish. Happy WOYWW Cindy

Kim Dellow said...

Fab news about the workshop! What fun. Enjoy your planning and LOVE your fluffy pen! Kim

Beckyt said...

what a great pen, good luck with planning :) x

Neil said...

What, no desk....... I suppose workshop planning is a convenient excuse but really! Love the pen by the way.......

Twiglet said...

Does the pen match your little outfit Julia!! Have a great day and good luck with the planning - not something I am good at. x Jo

Angie said...

What a hard life having to browse catalogues lol. DD had a pen like that ...thought it would help her keep hold of it ...she forgot about the cats!!!!

Mary Ann said...

I have added my link for this week:)

CRAFTY WOMBLE said...

Ahh yes the trauma of needing to spend money for something ;) a hardship for any lady especially one of a crafting persuasion - where to stop! I do find that now I partake of several blogs that it is a time consuming process. I always reply to the hostess but if people don't talk to me then I tend not to talk back these days - have to make a decision somewhere!

Nicky said...

Cute pen - I think this is the first shot of your space without your tape gun in sight - have a great week

Kezzy said...

I love looking through crafty catalogues, I just have to try and not be tempted to spend spend spend. I have got myself a notebook now as I kept writing on post it notes, but got fed up of them all over the place lol. My problem is I can't just look at a woyww post, I have to then go looking through the rest of the blog which sometimes leads into an hour gone by and I haven't even managed to comment lol. I have blogiversary candy this week, pop on over as I would love you to have a chance of winning. Kezzy xxx (p.s for candy all you need to do is comment so really easy lol).

May said...

Love the pen, good luck with the plans for the workshop Julia, have fun, Hugs May x x x x

peggy aplSEEDS said...

a workshop! that sound exciting! you have just the right pen to make a good plan for that workshop! happy planning, Julia!

Pam said...

Twiglet has now given me the image of you sat sporting with a lovely orange feather boa!!! Have a good Wednesday.
Hugs Pam

Ann B said...

So much more fun to write if your pen makes you smile. Craft workshop and Exmouth what a fab combination. I love Exmouth and spent many happy holidays in East Devon, in fact I think I know the craft shop - if it's the same one from a few years back. Good chippy as well.

Jacqueline said...

LOVE the pen !! Good luck with the planning! As you can see it's NOT my strong point! lol

Have a good WOYWW !

Jackie x

BetteK said...

Fluffy pens and notebooks and lists ... just my cup of tea! Happy WOYWW!!!! Love Debbie xXx

TangolikeRaindrop said...

Awesome pen - DD would love something like that to draw with - I'll have to keep an eye out in the shops. :) I reckon you'd be forever catching up with last weeks' and this weeks' posts.. maybe just do the rounds, if you can, for this week? That way you'll have more time for crafty things. :)

Di said...

Love the fluffy pen - any nose prints on the other side of your screen are from me. Sorry, nosy here magnified the photo but still couldn't manage to read your notebook - drat!! Good luck with the workshop planning, it'll be great for sure! Di xx

JoZart said...

Methinks you are hiding something from us! That tickling stick is poised with intent.... wonder what's brewing?
JoZarty x

April said...

Cute Pen :o) good luck with the planning x

Lisa-Jane said...

As much as I love technology, there is nothing better for planning than paper and pen. I write LOTS of lists and I much prefer writing by hand. I've got a purple pen much like yours except that it is obviously working for you. LOVING the zebra print - reminds me of that animal print couch last week! Have a good one!

Cardarian said...

Yes it is always a decision - just do the woyww or look through the whole lot - but then you get so sidetracked you end up looking at one or two blogs the whole evening! Huh! Enjoy the stamp picking!!
Lots of hugs,
Cardarian

Laura said...

Hope the workshop goes well it will be fun, lol a hello kitty pen, my sister would love it. Laura

Elizabeth said...

Hi Julia, great photo this week - my little granddaughter would have spotted what that pen was a mile off, but not me ... had to read other's comments before it twigged :) Good luck with all those decisions and have a gab week. Elizabeth x #47

Jaki Morris said...

What could be nicer than sitting with your feet up on a poof with a notebook, pen and a stamp catalogue?
Can someone please tell me how I can get that lovely WOYWW button on my blog? Thanks
Jakix

Erika said...

Julia I hope the planning all goes well....I've got to put my thinking cap on later too.
Happy WOYWW, crafty hugs,
Erika.

Shoshi said...

Ah... planning... we all have to do it sometimes! I love the planning notebook and bejewelled pen enthroned atop the royal satin cushion! I am sure the results will be nothing short of regal.

As you can see, I made it this week! Not sure how long this will last as I've been really poorly since Christmas, but I was determined not to go on missing out this week. Not sure how many desks I'll visit as my resources are limited and I need to spend more time acquainting myself with Sheba (my Black Cat Cougar cutting machine) and what she can do for me.

Have a great WOYWW, everybody.

Shoshi

Morning! Thanks again for hosting our weekly nose about! Am enjoying joining in. Zo x

Happy planning

Craftychris said...

Your cushion looks very regal and I love the fluffy pen! Happy organising and have a fab Wednesday and a wonderful week xx

MaggieC said...

Morning Julia and everyone else. For me, it was not just Blogger who was having an off day last week. The whole internet seemed to be on a go slow, which, when you consider that we are supposed to have had our speed doubled, does not make much sense. Hope you planning goes well and you have a wonderful class. xx Maggie #91 (I think)

Danielle said...

Love your Hello Kitty pencil!I am up this week.

Fiona@staring at the sea said...

Planning a workshop, how exciting. Looking through stamp catalogues, what a hardship! I used to live in Exmouth, hence my blog name. Fiona@95

Scrapcollectr said...

Sounds like it's going to be a very informative class... Wish I could take it! Good luck with the planning... *smile*

Sheena said...

Hi Julia!
I've taken part in a few of these WOYWW's and I never thought of commenting on your post before! Go figure that the first week I think of it your pic isn't even of your desk! lol!
Good luck in organising what you're doing - I love your pen. If that doesn't inspire something then nothing will!

Sheena

Brenda B said...

Aah, nice relaxing shot Julia, I always like my feet up. Trust you to have a Hello Kitty pen! Classes in Exmouth? Word must be getting out! Blogger has been a pain for a couple of weeks for me, I'm having to comment with my Google id and not my Wordpress one because they're not talking to each other again.

Hugs
Brenda 99

Jingle said...

CUTEST. PEN. EVER!!!!! I love it! And after yesterday's post I had a sneaky suspicion that there wouldn't be a traditional desk shot today. :-) That class sounds fun!

Becky said...

How fun is that pen???? Love it! Plotting AND planning? My two most favorite things! Happy WOYWW :)

Deb said...

I love it when my desk is my knee and I can relax in front of the tv. How lovely to have to trawl through stamp catalogues to choose your workshop, have fun!
Happy WOYWW! Debxx #108

Hey Julia!!
Thanks so much for hosting this awesome weekly party!! I've recommended it to many of my bloggy friends!! :)
Have a great week!!
~Lisa

famfa said...

Different desk. Like it. Great pen. Read your post on pub lighting. Made me laugh. Torches pah! X

Julie said...

There were a ton of entries last week! i got to check out a few of them but never got around to posting my own desk last week! Tried to make up for it this week by getting here early and there are already over 100 entries!! So much for early lol!!! Have a great week!! Hope you get your planning done!

Sue said...

Hi Julia, great Hello Kitty Pen, am also impressed with your organisation skills and your neat handwriting, I must look up the meaning of organisation, it somehow evades me! Loving the Zebra print too, Happy Wednesday, Sue xx

Craftgirl said...

Planning is kewl. Hope it all works out. I am early today as I usually add mine in the evening.
Happy WOYWW.

505whimsygirl said...

Good morning (here in the USA) Julia!

First and foremost, I must tell you that my productivity at work has almost flatlined on Wednesdays!! Shhh, don't tell my employer.

Secondly, THANK YOU for putting this together week end and week out. This weekly event has enriched my creativity in so many different ways. Can't wait to see what you've chosen from the catalogues!!!

Hugs,
Kay

Ohhh Snap said...

I love your Hello Kitty pen. I have to write the details down before or when I go to make the project I find I've forgotten them lol. Blogger is being such a PITA. I switched to Foxfire for blog hopping and it seems to be working much better, though still a bit iffy with comments. #114

pat said...

Putting your feet up sounds good. It is raining here.

Stephanie said...

I just joined in for the first time and am now off to check out everyone else's!!

Lavinia said...

Hiya Julia! I could do with some planning and plotting! Of my crafty space anyhow, its just not working for me at the mo! Need a re-arrange & tidy out. Like the fluffy pen, although never thought of you as a fluffy pen kinda gal! :) how wrong was I :)) And yes those papers from last weeks desk was all from the New DB Collection, really springy looking! have a good week!
Lavinia

buggalcrafts said...

Was trying to get a lower number this time! but just couldn' get awake this am! Sounds like ur busy enough!!!

Yours Artfully said...

I sympathise with the whole planning thing.Sometimes it comes easy and you have way too many ideas and have to narrow it down or you just can't pull a decent project together at all. My little grand daughter Amillie would kill you for that pencil.....well not literally of course but she does love Kitty A LOT!!!!

I think you have now made everyone realist that it isn't just us who struggles to get around all the desks, so thank you for that, I won't feel quite so guilty now.

Lin

MaggieC said...

Not sure why, but every time I click on Jennie (No 10) the link takes me straight to your blog, Julia. Is there a secret way around it? Maggie #91

L00py's Craft Creations said...

Sorry hun, blooming Blogger is sending every one to the wrong post AGAIN !!!! can we delete mine some how, and I'll re post on the right link again!!!?

Mary said...

Doesn't blogger know we require it be up an running on Wednesday. I thought I was the only one having a problem....Monday I had trouble commenting on posts....today...touch wood, at least I can comment! Julia....what a happy little pen you have. I'm glad I'm not the only one having problems with planning. Have a great week everyone! I plan too! :-) Oh look, I planned something already today!

Princess Judy Palmer said...

My cat would totally abscond with your Hello Kitty pen because of the fluff on it. Being creative and planning can be hard work. Happy workshop planning!

Chrissy said...

I just joined up for the first time, can't wait to see what everyone else is up to!!

lisa said...

That's what I like to see, a very SERIOUS pen for a very SERIOUS lady, lol. Planning sounds like the best bit in a strange sort of way, all those choices!! Hope it all goes well.Happy WOYWW
Hugs Lisax #128

P.S It's lovely see you but I can't believe you ever get anything else done if you manage to visit everyone!!! Take some time to craft!!!

Anne said...

Hi there how exciting a workshop to do. I would love to be good enough/asked to do something like that. Think it's the ex teacher in me. Gorgeous pen- I have two similar- love em. I thought I wouldn't be so far down the list as I'm on earlier than usual but hey there are a lot here this week. Anne x

No new desk pic. for me either really. I've been looking up tesellation meaning and been making my head spin! Happy WOYWW xx.

Lorinda said...

Just realized I somehow managed to post to last week's WOYWW...off to a good start!

This is my first WOYWW as this is the first time I've had a proper workspace!

Thanks for this great idea. I love seeing what other people are working on and how they organize their spaces and gorgeous art supplies.

Squirrel x said...

Tough job hun but someone has to do it, rofl! Cool pen - that's your street cred right out the window missus - there was me thinking you would be using one of those really chic wooden Parker jobs. Hugs, Sxx PS. Hope you manage to hop over and meet Sid.

Bridget Larsen said...

Great idea to have a notebook, I have one at work but never thought to have one at home, I have so many ideas it would be a great idea not to lose it in my head LOL
Bridget #32

DW Peot said...

I always have a notebook near by. One in the bedroom, art studio, kitchen, the truck, and even one in my purse (for those long waits at the Doctor's Office)! I have occasionaly waken during the night with ideas, and grabbed my ink and notebook and jot it down in the dark only using the light from the iphone. I love notebooks! Julia, you are just my kind of girl!
Hugs!
Deb

Shelly Hickox said...

Love that pen...and planning a workshop sounds like so much fun!

Debs Willis said...

cool pen Jules! Know what you mean about planning classes - spent all day today planning and making samples for one. Seems like ages since I made something 'just cos I wanted to'.....

Happy Woyww

BumbleVee said...

Hey Julia.... decided to add my post after seeing Twiglet's WOYWW so many Wednesday... and now...off to peruse the others...hoping for some inspiration... although, then...I probably won't have any time left to craft or ... well,...even to bake those muffins.... hahhahahha...

Kim x said...

I know what you mean about a notebook. I keep one beside me at work and often jot down notes for a new post or a list of things that I need to take with me for a class. Or even a new list of things that I need to make a list about lol.
hugs Kimx

fairy thoughts said...

Just what every girl needs .....a red fluffy pen. It makes the writing all the more fun. It would seem everyone else is fixated on your pen too aren't we shallow

Lisa said...

Just dropping by to say a big thank you for stopping by my blog today via Candace's. Much appreciated!

Karen said...

I love the red, fluffy pen it would match a Valentines card or journal perfectly :)

I hope you manage to sort out your future classes, it must take some organising but I bet its worth it :)

Squirrel x said...

Hey Julia - any chance you might have time to delete my link from No 134? Not sure what happened but it's my previous WOYWW. I've now put the right one in further down. Hugs Sx

Raven's Rest Studio, Jennifer Conway said...

Ha! This week I was looking forward to looking out your window (after taking your desk activities in first)! I'll definitely pop in next week for a peek! All that "dry" pre-planning stuff can be fun too - especially with a fancy-schmancy pen like that! *smiles* ~Jen

Kathleen said...

I'm all nice and snug and warm with just the laptap and my cup of OJ... Thanks for hosting... My first time here :)

Polly Polkadot said...

I'm a bit late today, OH disappeared with the camera - again!

Cute Pen!! I love a good planning session with good ol' pen and notebook!! Happy WOYWW!

The Crafty Elf said...

Splendid picture! Love your pen Julia....only you! LMAO
With so many on the list now it's getting harder and harder to visit everyone and that Mr. Blogger? Well, I have my opinion on him right now as I was one who struggled last week as well. ((Shaking fists in the air))
Hey, I'm #150 this week - I was #1 a couple of weeks ago! Funny how life can change things. :)

kay said...

hi julia,thanks for getting back to me,i also had a email from janet re the feb newsletter and it contained info about workshop but as its on a monday i wont be able to make it as working :( have a fab time though,x

Joanna King (aka Asia K) said...

Lovin' that fluffy red pen. I have a similar one but pink! ;) Happy WOYWW! Hugs, Joanna

sandra de said...

Yep, have to agree the pen is fab. Good luck with the workshop I am sure it will be very well prepared. I'm not having the problems with commenting so I will try to keep out of blogger's way. Ohhh I do know the feeling torn between looking and doing a constant source of turmoil.

Barb King said...

I found some great blogs when I looked at your entries this week. What a fun idea. I was so looking forward to Wed. coming again. Thanks

Lizzy said...

OK, this seemed a little harder this week than last, don't know exactly why, but now I'm off to look at all the peeps desks and stuff while hubby is off playing poker, yuk.

LuLu said...

Howdy Julia,

Happy New Year!

I'm back after being MIA since November. Your workshop sounds like fun - I envy you - would love to HAVE to go through catalogs!

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

Peace,

Love the hello kitty pen and I would have left the feet up there... mother's seem to have a knack of being that annoying whisper in your ear at any age don't they.... lol... have a great creative week

Peggy Cain said...

I love being a part of this every Wed I', fighting the flu and got a late start on my link and search thanks for doing this!

Mynnette said...

So sad I missed out on all the fun last week--I don't know that I'd get tired of looking at stamp catalogs, but I probably maybe might would. ;) Thanks for letting us link up--happy Wednesday!!! :)

Annie Smith said...

Oooh! My daughter would envy your pen. :) I just love WOYWW, thank you so much for hosting it. I seriously look forward to wednesdays just for that. Yay!!

Sylvia/LittleTreasures said...

The little decorated box has a blogspot about 4/5 down from my WOYWW post. The contents were wonderful..

TheFairyyellowbugQueen said...

Julia you remind me that I have to do some thinking/planning instead of running around like a chicken with its' head cut off clutching a paint brush with no plans!!!! *smiles* Norma

Hardwick Creations said...

Julia, there are times when we just have to spend time planning and organising to be able to come up with what we truly want to create...I'm sure you will work out what you need to do. Thanks for giving us all this opportunity to share a la "show and tell style".

Now to trawl through all the blogs...can't wait!!

DottyA Cards & Things said...

Will I love your pic for today anyway!!!
It's good to be back and plan on doing some visiting now...

Lori said...

Julia - thank you. I'm not sure I've ever told you thank you for the WOYWW community that you've started. It is wonderful to be a part of something that just seems to continue to grow.

Coleen said...

Ok, I've linked up for the first time, but I'm afraid I didn't link to the exact page, but to my blog. Simply because I don't know how to do that. Wouldn't appreciate if someone could share with me how.

Lou said...

7.50pm on Thursday and all 168 desks visited and i think only 2or3 that i couldn't leave comments on, my goodness Julia how do you do it every week??, did you ever imagine it would be as BIG and wonderful as it is?? lots of lovely goodies seen and now i am very envious and filled with inspiration, and have decided i might just NEED one of those pens Hope you have a lovely week Lou x

Geri Centonze said...

Thanks for hosting this weekly event and for visiting my blog. It's so nice of you to provide a spot for us all to share our work. Have a great week ♥ P.S. I would have responded directly to your comment but unfortunately you're set up as a no-reply blogger. There is a "fix" for that and if you'd like to see how to change your status you can read about it on my blog here http://www.myheartartbygeri.com/2011/10/ive-posted-this-before-but-i-think-its.html

Spyder said...

aw, I did miss woyww, hope i can be around next week...might not be able to tho...not at home at the mo so not on my computer, so will make mistakes! I need to do a LOT of planing this year too, first, finish all the things I've started, forget the things I know I won't finish and start things I'v e always said I'd do! I need a big note book! have a great crafting week
((Lyn))

Katie said...

Hi Julia,

Thank you for your comment! That is a big top tea pot, my apartment looks out over a pier with a Ferris wheel and everything, so I like to keep it on the windowsill to go with the scene. Also - I get all freaked out if I've only got one cutter out! I use one for pictures and smaller items, and one for 12x12 sheets and making strips. Technically, they belong on the shelf under the desk, but they never end up there!

Crafting Alison said...

i love the thought behind this one.

I thought i had originally placed myself on here on Wednesday but for some reason i messed up.

i am hoping between posts looking for inspiration - had an op last weeek and i need to do as little as possible for a month - obviously the doc has told me to craft for a month!!! Hubby most probably doesn't see it this way.

Jeremy and Samantha said...

what a fun idea I don't have the luxury of a desk or ongoing work surface. I work on the kitchen table so it all gets cleaned up but I love seeing others creative spaces and ways.

That Craft Place Ltd said...
