What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 139 the edit!!

Oh, and just to catch y'all out, I'm posting this early Tuesday evening...need to be on the road early tomorrow and..hey, well, why not! Well, starring on mine, nothing particular, but a spectacular mess.  How unusual!  I took this photo yesterday afternoon before the light started to fail (I thought), and it has changed slightly.  Because of course, even though I've had 31 days to do it, my February calendar page isn't ready...and actually still isn't, but it's nearly there.  There's an acrylic box at left which houses my stick on and other gems...open, with a badly drawn sketch thrown on top of it.  Under that are the scraps that I used to make cards that you've seen on this blog recently.  The Elusive Images stamp set and the few clear stamps underneath that are waiting to have their fate decided - put away (again) or give up and sell on. Dunno yet, probably will wait until they really are in my way!  Inevitably there's heaps of glue dots and rubbish that could so quickly and easily be put in the bin.  That would make the place look better.  But hey, the ladder's still out in the garden, why should I have guilt about tidying?! For those of you that drew in your breath when you saw the photo, let me assure you that I did NOT clear up before I started on the calendar.  No siree, didn't occur to me.  Desperate, slutty measures. 
So, share your space..desk, floor, tray, arm of chair, kitchen worktop..wherever and whatever you are creating, we like to see.  Use WOYWW in your post title so we can find it easily, and link your post here....we'll visit if we can.  But you have to visit too...reciprocal nosiness is very much a part of this thing! 
**Ahem...step onto soap box**
Because of our expanding numbers, adverts and posts dated prior to Wednesday or un-related to WOYWW will for the most part be ignored...it's much easier to click away than to really 'police' this.  There aren't many rules, but for the sake of your hit rate/comments/reputation, you should reconsider doing  WOYWW if your intention is to gain from it in any other way than by becoming a part of this very friendly, silly, artistic, inspiring and sometimes tidy community.  Thank You.  Please scroll right down for the edit!!

Janet accuses me of 'do what I say, not what I do' and it's taken me a while to work out why...and I realise it's because I say in the soap box section that posts dated prior to Wednesday will be ignored....of course it's not at all what I mean....I mean that if you link any post other than a WOYWW one (for example, your regular Tuesday post that is unrelated to WOYWW) then it will for the most part, be ignored.  Too many real WOYWW posts to visit.  The time you load your post for WOYWW is of no consequence, and if it suits y'all better for me to post for about 1am (GMT) on Wednesdays, then I will..but I won't be doing it live!!

Annie Smith said...

I prefer an untidy workspace! And the ladder isn't doing any harm where it is. Have a good road trip, wherever you are off to.

Spyder said...

ohoo I've only been this early once before and that's coz Mr Linky was late! Well. I think your craftmess looks great, I REALLY miss mine...I'm home sick! It's just lovely to pop round and see the World of WOYWW is still just as crazy
Love it!
(Lyn)

fairy thoughts said...

Only following suit, case of do as I say not do as I do?
I was actually just going to bed when I saw your post and was curious!
Same as rainbow lady read your post after I posted ... just pretend I'm Russian he! he!
janet
Ps enjoy your trip

JoZart said...

Great opportunity to be naughty and post early as DH has to be in hospital VERY early so I have a sick note for permission! Sorry Miss!
Great desk and back to normal with lots of crafty goodness, aka MESS, there this week.
Lv JoZarty x

scrappystickyinkymess said...

Yes, I think seeing the desk results in a Pavlovian response, and you are powerless not to link. I always troll blog land late night and was so stunned to see it, I linked, then, because I was so excited I could, commented, T HEN I actually READ the post. Doh! Then I had to dash back and sort out the post!

I'm sure I'll hear all about it Saturday...unless the snow actually materializes. :)

Deb said...

woohoo, I have never been in the units, I am always over 100! Thanks for posting early! By the time I get up even at 6am, it is halfway through your day!
hOpe you got your calendar finished, your card is so pretty!
Happy WOYWW #8!!! Debxx

Hazel said...

Great minds think alike, Julia, to post at this time - we need to be up and out in the morning and busy the rest of the day, so thought I'd prepare my post this evening ... and then found you were open for business! Love your 'active' desk - evidence of lots of bits and pieces going on. x

Hels Sheridan said...

cor, you catched me out hun... cos I was just scheduling and hopped over for the link cos I am so lazy I couldn't be bothered to type... and there it was! Hurrah... I like early! Have a lovely day today x

Hels Sheridan said...

ah bums... I just did the same as the others... whooops, should have read first then linked... sorry Julia... I promise to read first and link after in future xx

Hels Sheridan said...

ah bums... I just did the same as the others... whooops, should have read first then linked... sorry Julia... I promise to read first and link after in future xx

Angie said...

OMG ...I am actually No 12 ...cant remember the last time I was lower than 40....thanks for doing this early ...or is it late? ... this week.

I rarely tidy if I want to create ....just put things on the floor or push them a little ...to give space ...trouble is my bed is the other side and sometimes I go to climb in and find bits and pieces have jumped off the desk so I have to chuck them back where they belong. If I do tidy I find that the thing I need has been put away ...what a waste of time and energy. xx

Hels Sheridan said...

ah bums... I just did the same as the others... whooops, should have read first then linked... sorry Julia... I promise to read first and link after in future xx

Oooh - sneaky! But we can be sneaky too!

Hands to Work, Hearts to God said...

My sister Peggy came to my house (we live next to each other) and I thought there was an emergency! There was! WOYWW was up and I was not yet ready with my post! :^) a hundred laughs, julia! Whatever have you done to make Wednesdays so "IMPORTANT!" Sometimes I think you should have another meme with What's in Your Garden, or Street or something, cause I was curious about your ladder and took a closer look! Absurd really!! Never knew I was so nosy! Patsy from

Chrissy said...

:) Thanks for hosting, can't wait to see what everyone is working on!

Dragon said...

I am not sure when I can post in the morning so early/late is GREAT for me, even of this will have a Tuesday tag!!! NO!! Hurrah it really IS wednesday now, I have taken so long with this blog!!! Loving the desk and the ladder/garden is JUST like mine
Love and light

Ali said...

Wow! Don't think I've ever been this early in the list before! :lol:

However, please note that I was a good girl and waited till after midnight, and therefore technically Wednesday, before posting my WOYWW post - as instructed! ;)

And for once you desk is messier than mine! Woot! Will wonders never cease? :D

Oooh - a mass WOYWW lie in is on the horizon for the desperate folk (me) still blog browsing at this ungodly hour...and alas, numbers past 30,000 for those that will gasp tomorrow. I Was telling LLJ - you have no idea what, who and how far WOYWW has reached into lives. I owe many a rung on my still young crafty blogging ladder to your fair name. A heartfelt thank you INDEED! Sarah (at a respectful 14)

Danielle said...

Following the rules, but since you posted early, I figured it was okay. Especially since I have an early appointment out of town tomorrow, it is nice to get a head start visiting other's desks.

May said...

Take care on your journey Julia, a wee messy desk going on, lovely that's what I like to see,I got in under 30 tonight never happened before whoop whoop, Hugs May x x x

peggy aplSEEDS said...

LOL, you sure surprised a lot of us, Julia! now we will be watching not only on Wednesdays, but on Tuesdays as well!? Happy WOYWW!
hugs,

RosA said...

Hi Julia, Your desk looks suitably creative. I must say I loved those cards in your post Sat 28. They are really gorgeous! Thanks for posting early. I have had the flu (and it's summer here), so I can have an early mark today. Hooray!

Charlene said...

This is my very first time to join you for the party! Peggy came by & left a comment for me & that is how I found out about all of you. Now, I'm off to play & see what all of you have on your desks! Hello from the "New Kid On The Block"
Charlene

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

Wow, you caught me off guard. Have a fun time and a safe trip.

Katie said...

I love the card! Have a wonderful trip!

Also - I just wanted to say I usually post Tuesday nights because I won't make it to work on time if I link in the morning (I'm so not a good early morning person!) I'll set an early alarm next week so I can do it Wednesday, but is it okay to leave it this time? I love checking out all the blogs (two weeks ago I even managed to get around to all of them! My usual is 60-70... but it helped that my boyfriend was working nights!) so I don't want to be disqualified!

sandra de said...

thanks for posting early .... and I still got #32. I think there are quite a few woyww's who sit waiting for you to link. Loving the card with rosebuds and slutty measures nice balance of naughty and nice.

scrappymo! said...

Newbie here, still Tuesday here in Canada but I think 4:30 am Wednesday in England.
Not sure of the rules for those in other countries.

I have posted this now but will recheck the rules for out of country and timezones for next month.

Safe journey to you Julia...thanks for the kind comment on my blog...

So glad to hear that others leave out the things they are thinking of getting rid of...helps you really decide when you see it, I think.

Looks you have been busy creating...:)

Create With Joy said...

Ah Julia, ever the sneaky one! There I was, tweeting away, when I should have been finishing my post! Guess you'll be tripling your hits next week as you have all of the WOYWWers busy hitting our site URL all day - you know, everyone is going to be ticked if you forget to post the linky, lol!

Have a great day and Feb? Did you say FEB?

I did wait til midnight. Love your desk--it looks well loved by you!

VonnyK said...

Love your mess. I have to admit that I tidied up all my mess prior to taking the photo. Have to at least appear to be tidy don't I.

Von :) #40 (Wish I was still that age)

Helen said...

Well that puts us all in a different order! Will read your post properly at a sensible time when i get to work!

Jeremy and Samantha said...

wow just found this ls week my first time participating so excited thanks
Julia for hosting such a great thing. safe travels

Sylvia/LittleTreasures said...

Like they sing away "It's 5 O'Clock somewhere" But I was totally surprised when I came to pick up the copy and paste address.
Messy or not I hope you enjoy your day and we all can get busy peeping about.
Happy WOYWW

voodoo vixen said...

LOL at the ladder still being there... is that to make the local burglar's life a bit easier? Your desk looks pretty tidy today... industrious and tidy!!

Electra said...

I say as long as that ladder is out there, you can do WHATEVER you want to, Julia! (and if he does put it away, just put it back while he is sleeping)

inkypinkycraft said...

happy woyww, i love the purple flowers !hugs trace x no 53

Gabrielle said...

Happy Wednesday! I know I'm supposed to comment on the creative mess but I was so pleased to see the ladder make another entrance - just shows that your house, like so many of our houses, have people who start a job and then don't always clean up after it - much like my desk this week! Love it!

Sue said...

Hi Julia
lovely to see nothing has changed while i have been missing, a super busy desk as always. Oh i had to go to the loo at 1 i should have looked in! lol thought you might like to no that!!
Have great day, happy WOYWW, sue,x (54)

Shazsilverwolf said...

I didn't even notice it was up last night, lol. Thanks Julia for putting me right about scheduled posting- I did it!! Yay!
Love Shaz

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

Hi there Julia...have a safe journey & a wonderful day...Mel :)

Helen said...

Ok, at work now (yes this early) so I can see what's occurring! Love your busy (not messy - well only slightly!) desk... and the ladder still outside not hurting anyone! I always write on Tuesdays but schedule for early Weds and link before I go to work so I'm ok!! Have a good day - it's cold this early!

Lunch Lady Jan said...

That's a very 'creative' desk - lol!! Lordy, I'm in the 60's today, ah well, c'est la vie - I ain't getting up any earlier just to appear further up the list :)
Hugs, LLJ # 68!!!

Twiglet said...

Thought I was up early today and then look where I am 69!!!! Ah well - back to bed with a coffee for ten minutes. Have a good day. x Jo

Annie said...

This is quite early enough for me :-) It looks like you've even managed a little time sunbathing on your deck chair [top right of your desk]. Have a great day out and about.
Hugs,
A x

Bridget Larsen said...

I never noticed the ladder until now, you could build something around it then it may get put away LOL.
Love the purple tinge in your photo because its my favourite colour

Pam said...

Morning, I don't think you caught anyone out posting early I for once thought i was on the ball when I came over to link at 7.40 am only to discover 70 were here b4 me!!!!

GLENDA BROOKS said...

Hope your journey is a safe one! Love your desk and I'm not suprised the ladder is still there. It's a man thing!

Elizabeth said...

Gosh, but you were early this week. Is that snow I see out there in your garden? You know, Julia, I think you are a tad hard on yourself, there's still room for crafting on that desk :) I hope you are enjoying whatever it is prompted you to post so early and that you have a wonderful week ahead. Elizabeth x #78

Kathryn said...

Hey Julia!
Way out here in California and way behind on your time schedule! It's only a little after midnight on Tuesday now Wednesday Wow!
Anyway. Love your post. I read it to myself in an English accent, HA!
Good to have internet again! I've missed y'all!

I think you've got a fun & fab desk, thanks for hosting this great day each week. Am off to post my own shortly. Zo x

Jackie said...

I feel much happier with a messy desk. Happy WWOYWW everyone :)

okienurse said...

WOW I feel like the Mad Hatter....I'm late! I love the term "desperate slutty measures!" I will have to remember that. Have a fun day! I am offering up some blog candy so come leave a comment and get a chance to win!

karen said...

I can see parts of the wood of your desktop so I think that means that is moderately clean and organized!
And I really like what I can see of the card with the rosebuds!
Happy WOYWW!
xoxo Karen

Lisa-Jane said...

Ah well that explains why I am so far down the list even though I thought I had posted fairly early today. So many people already! And HOW many people last week - goodness what a community. I love the look of those flowers on your calendar page - will you show it once its finished? Have a good day xx

Jacqueline said...

LOVE that little striped deck chair!! And liking the 'new look' blog too :D

Jackie x

Kim Dellow said...

LOL! And I thought I was going to be one of the first to link up today - D'oh! Have a fun Wednesday! Kim

Rumtruffle said...

I'm so glad I'm not the only one struggling with a calender, in fact Mr Rum stuck a photograph in January's space as I was behind and I'm thinking I might just cut off the dates and keep the same picture (hangs her head in shame)
Have a lovely week Julia x

Enfys said...

Have a good trip Julia, leave your desk just like that while you are away, it will look more interesting when you get home again...

Airing cupboard stamping said...

good morning my lovely. My desk resembles yours today. I am still not ready for crop if I don't do it today I am sure I will break out in hives!!

What you up to Friday morning do you fancy a jolly with me and Luckett to the Garden Centre. We will pick you up about 9.30 let me know.

If not see you Saturday morning x x

Ann B said...

Had my post ready last night but scheduled it for this morning and now find there are already 64 people above me on the list - good job it's not a race otherwise I'd be in for the wooden spoon. It's already up to 95 links so I can see I won't get much done today apart from sitting here and browsing- still it is much better than housework.

Like the look of that card your on with at the mo / were on with yesterday :o) I've been trying to do those roses but can't seem to be happy with mine, your's are cute! in fact looking back at my post there is a screwed up rose towards the back of my desk :o) descided to make the flowers for the card I'm working on by cutting simple circles and scrunching them up a bit :o) must try harder with the little roses! x

Di said...

Yikes - a lot of early birds here today :) In between stamping a load of stamps for my new fangled systema for organising them - and then cleaning them one by one I'll be hopping round blogs - if only to check whether anyone else has a deck chair on their desk Julia!! Remember, you can come over and help to clean the stamps - I have plenty of baby wipes here - and I KNOW how you adore cleaning stamps :)) Di xx

Aj* said...

OMG I see clear space !!

You got me beat this week haha

Angela (Toucan Scraps) said...

been missing your desk Julia, but I'm back again this week.
all the best with your calendar page.

Kate said...

Like the look of the little purple roses on the card, but then purple always gets me every time.

Jaki Morris said...

Happy Wednesday
Every week there are more and more wonderful spaces to see, I think we will shortly need 48 hours on a Wenesday just to get round them all!

Rainbow Lady said...

Thanks for popping round to mine Julia....yes I am very fortunate with my life and I do appreciate it. Also glad to be back in UK even though very cold up here brrr. Forgot to say liking you card too. Have great day xx

Nicola said...

This is my first WOYWW be gentle with me :) x

judith@poppy cottage said...

My craft desk is always messy, but at loeast I know where everything is! If I tidied up, I'd never find anything! I work on the dining table because the light is better, that's all. That's normally messy too. Don't ever feel guilty about the mess, I think it's just creative. Judith xx

lisa said...

You mean you don't stay up all night to organise WOYWW, Julia!!!! I love coming to see your creative clutter!!! Don't feel guilty about it, I don't and I have a Hubby who leaves all his mess about too. You want to see a photo of our conservatory where he's been working recently. Maybe I'll shame him next week!!!!
Happy WOYWW
Hugs Lisax #116

Sheena said...

Your desk is so lovely with all its crafty mess! Your card looks lovely and I think the ladder is starting to look at home there! lol!

I haven't linked up yet as I'm at work and I thought I'd try to get a head start on the commenting before I post mine when I get home later.

Or maybe I should really do some work. Nah! I'd rather see some other people's crafty desks - I'm sick of my boring work one!

Sheena

Tammy said...

Hurray for Wednesday! I love to see your creative clutter! Hope you get your calendar done soon! Safe travels to wherever you are going so early! :)

Hardwick Creations said...

Thanks for posting early Julia...it means that I'm not late for once.
Isn't it funny, the first thing I noticed was the ladder! lol
Remember, a messy desk means you have been productive.

Thanks again for giving us the opportunity to showcase our creative impulses.

Laura said...

Hi Julia what a great crafty desk, I can see lots going on today. Tell hubby to move the ladders or a burglar could use them to get in an upstairs open window. Have a lovely Wednesday. Laura

fairy thoughts said...

thanks for clearing that up :) but it's you blog you can post when you like we will all follow anyway, being nosey is soooo addictive!
thanks for your nice comments
enjoy your trip

Craftychris said...

Your desk always makes mine look sooooo boring cause yours is always so interesting! Have a good trip. xx

L00py's Craft Creations said...

heheheh didnt have time to post a comment before, but now I get to see the clarification!! I was wondering!! I must admit, for some reason Blogger kept sending people to an old post last week, which was most annoying!! Especially as the WOYWW post was right there!! Then I tried to repost it to the main blog page, and it was still sending people to the wrong one, Stupid Blogger!!! Last weeks is there somewhere, I promise! and this weeks is as well!! Have tried the tip about changing to a pop up comment box, and hope it works, I did visit everyone last week, but commenting was a no no for some stupid reason. Right off to start again from number 40!!

Have a good week hun, xx

Fiona@staring at the sea said...

Looks like you caught a few folk out today Julia! Well I'm at #123 today, I wonder what the numbers will be up to by this evening!

Rachel K said...

I love that card, the one with the stripes and the flowers. Can we see more please?

Polly Polkadot said...

Well, OH has finished repairing my greenhouse, but our ladder still lies on our lawn, and I realise I genuinely don't know where it should live!

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

Somehow or other, I didn't read the part in red. Not sure how I missed it before, but I saw it on someone's blog. Yes, 1 am GMT would work a LOT better for me, but I've adjusted my lifestyle to stay up late on Tuesday night. After all, I know how to figure the six hour difference (grin).

Mary Ann said...

You could train some ivy over the ladder in an artistic way and it would then become garden art:)

famfa said...

Wow so many comments already. Love your desk, so much to see and look at. Less tidying, more crafting

Kemma said...

This is such a fun idea! Am so glad you started it and that I found you a few weeks ago. It has been a lot of fun posting and getting comments from others! Thanks!
Kemma #36

Lavinia said...

Blimey put that ladder away! Its driving me mad, I wondered yesterday if it would still be on your pic today! You need a tidy Julia, you really do! :)I cant see the wood for the trees! :) Keep well & warm!

MaggieC said...

I have to admit that I do sometimes write and publish my post when I get back in on Tuesday night/Wednesday morning. Today I was very late as I forgot to take the camera upstairs last night. Mind you, I nearly did not take a photo at all when I looked at the mess. Yours is so tidy in comparison. thank you for hosting us, and well done for having your blog recognised as being the best - nothing we didn't already know. Have a good week. xx Maggie #112

Tertia said...

My mess wins first prize today, I think! Yours looks like creative genius at work.
LOL at that comment about practcing what you preach. Some people just make me smile.
Happy WOYWW

Crafting Alison said...

just added my link... i love this blog as it proves that i am not along..

do you think that crafter's minds are as messy as their work spaces? mine is!!!

Becky said...

Busy desk indeed, but that makes for a more interesting picture, right? Right. I sure would like some windows like that in my space. I admire yours every time I visit :)

505whimsygirl said...

Bravo Julia! When I'd go to a link and it's NOT WOYWW I just click off. There are so many participants that I want to definitely visit their desks and if I use my time to visit someone that isn't REALLY participating I feel cheated.

Alas, I didn't get photos taken this week so I'm not linking up but will definitely take a snoop around!

Safe trip.

Hugs,
Kay

fairyrocks said...

Thank You so much for hosting Ms Julia, I haven't been here in a while, but certainly do follow some of the inspiring people I have peeped in on from time to time. I do love to look at whatever you are all doing as well, many times wishing I could just see a little more or under that table LOL
Keep smiling and creating

Sandra said...

wow that looks super creative, I must say.

Mary said...

Hello Julia and all.... I want to first say....Julia, thanks so much for being my Wednesday inspiration. Whether you know it or not, you inspired me to get busy creating, and to roll up my sleeves and get my room organized. I've got to say.... I've met some great folks through your blog...So here's a BIG THANK YOU! See you next Wednesday!

Fuchsia said...

Hi Julia
nice to see you are being productive I cannot believe its February already I Think January was kidnapped LOL
I get my Craft stamper Friday and it was great to see your Blog in there !
Have a great week

I want to see what's in your jar! I also did the change to pop up window thingy, I hope has worked. Happy W.O.Y.W.W. xJanex

CRAFTY WOMBLE said...

Cooo people sure do stay up late round these har parts. I bypassed all the excitement by going to bed! The pouch is for my mouthy stitches swap partner. It is intended to hold a small embroidery hoop containing some work. I also plan to make a felt needle / scissors pouch and probably a little bag to hold threads :) I also wait with great excitement to see what I get back. It did occur to me looking at it today now the owl us finished and attached it would make a very reasonable picture if framed!

Anne-marie said...

hiya I haven't visited for such a long time I thought it was time I joined in lol with such a fun topic. I too leave things out deciding what to do with them,but they always ended being put away as I dont like to get rid of any of my craft stuff lol
Anne-marie x

Sue said...

Lovely crafty mess Julia, now I have just noticed those two door handles! what happens when you open the doors? are there lots of lovely goodies hiding down the back there? Hope my blog looks ok today :0) Happy Crafting, Sue xx

dianneo said...

Ooops - I posted under 138 too! Oh well, have a super week everyone!! #140 this week

TangolikeRaindrop said...

Happy WOYWW! :) I want to play with all the awesome things you have on your desk. great card! :)

Sherry Edwards said...

It might be messy Julia, but at least there's a lot going on!

Congratulations on having your blog featured in the Craft Stamper mag :)

Sue Althouse said...

Seems totally reasonable to me. Thankfully, I've not run across many posts that impose on your generosity in hosting WOYWW.

Marianne said...

Thanks so much for being here. I am coming back to blog land and what better place to start re-connecting than here on WOYWW.

butlersabroad said...

Boy you caught a lot of people on the hop this week, can't believe I'm languishing at 115! And no, please, no earlier that your 6am, otherwise I'll be at 200 and something. But one thing's for sure, you're never going to be able to please all the people all the time so don't fret about it. I'm with you on the non WOYWW posts, I click away each time, unless it's a regular showing us what last weeks mess turned into.

Hugs
Brenda 115 <--- yes really!

YIKES!! number 146..... waaaahhhhh.... so far down the line! Serves me right. Sleep is really so over rated...why do I bother? I just lie there and toss and turn anyway.....

I dont think some of the ladies quite understood what you meant by the thing about linking up only the Wednesday post..... and of course, as usual, some are linking their whole blogs for advertising purposes, etc... but, maybe they will get it now... okay...off to visit a few ...

Caatje said...

Well, this week I'm one of the last I think, but better late than never. I'm intrigued by the little flowers on the card on your desk, they look so cute.

Hi Julia, they say better late than never, but I do have to say I'm very late! Sorry I've not been very supportive - I got side tracted with some stamping! It's brill to see you're still directing WOYWW - I'll try hard to catch up with old and new friends. ikki

Mighty busy workdesk you have there, I have made my February calendar page and March but that's as far as it's gone so far, you've reminded me that I need to pull my finger out and finish the whole thing before it's December!

Hugs Lol xxxx

I noticed that the ladder was still there right away and had a good chuckle at that. I confess that I made up my post early yesterday, knowing I wouldn't be home until way late last night. That means I rather fibbed in the whole thing, in fact there was a difference in my desk--my cat sitter piled all the mail up on it. I'm glad to be home! And as a fellow dental sufferer, you can relate to this story--I'm out of town that toothache gets so bad that I had to get it taken care of in Mexico (about 90 minute drive from where I saw staying). I'm pleased to report that one root canal later I'm better. I am going to have words with the dentist I saw just before leaving town!! Grrrr... I may even bite her with my new crowns.

Hello!

A 'spectacular mess' - I like that phrase! For the past few weeks that describes how I have felt! :<) Wicked nasty viral - can't remember when I was last that ill. Anyway, I love your blog and your messes and all the wonderful people to visit! Wishing you a happy day!

Hugs,

Barbara Diane

Carolyn Phillips said...

Why would you tidy before you craft? I don't get that at all!

SueH said...

There was me think I was early this morning, only to find that you were early too and you made me look late again, Lol!

Loving the busy desk again this week, especially the colours that you’re working with. Lavender and Blue always look good together.

Happy Crafting!
Sue

Love to see all those workspaces. I posted today, one of the last ones probably, but I got it in. Thanks!

Darnell J Knauss said...

This is the funnest website out there in the stamping world!

LuLu said...

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

Peace,

My desk looks like this when I have things queued up to be dealt with. How long that might take is anybody's guess! Very spectacular.

Bit tricky if some codger appears at the upstairs window on the ladder ;-) I've been away so long the WOYWW numbers have grown heaps which is great. Well done.

Yours (returning),
Ros (180)

Caatje said...

I seem to somehow have linked to an old woyww post by mistake. My apologies. I don't know if it's possible, but you can remove me from link #146. I reentered my name on #182 with the correct link. Hope that's okay.

Helen said...

Oh, Julia please don't change the time you publish!! I admit to being a bit anal about trying to be as high up the list as I can, but little things please little minds they say.... besides, I can link as I get up and ready for my ridiculously early departure for the job that all being well sort of pays for my "little" hobby!!!! Love always.(won't be able to make Farnborough, but thanks for the offer)

Lou said...

Good morning Julia, Thursday now, but I did visit on Wednesday and managed to get my WOYWW in the early double figures, but only because I was up till the wee hours and saw you had posted your desk, I have managed to comment on almost every desk again this week, but it is astounding how much time it takes and well it has worn me out, (I ‘waffle’ far to much) thoroughly enjoyed it, but it’s a bit much for my poor little brain to take, so I will have to find a way of simplifying my visiting next week, Thank you for enabling me to get out and meet lots of new interesting people when I am mostly unable to get out of the house. I also love the idea that my ideas (few though they are hehe) may be of help to someone else and they would not have noticed me in the big wide blog world, had it not been for WOYWW. Hope you have a great week Lou @#26

mommyle said...

I'm all mixed up this week, but still getting around a little to see what everyone is up to. Safe travel.

Vickie @ In My Head Studios said...

Thanks for sharing all your work spaces! It's fun to "visit" your studios! (Woo hoo! I'm 186! Coincidentally that is my grandparents' house number.)

Jennie -The Artistic Stamper said...

oh my I am late posting a comment, but then I have an excuse.. was in hospital with MIL, and linked from my phone! consequently haven't even been round anyone's blogs and boy there are a lot! :))))
Hope all is well in your land of desks!
xx

Kim said...

I love the card, and I think your desk is well-controlled! Too funny on the earlybirds! I always feel guilty posting a day or two later-I wish I could post up immediately! Have a great weekend.

Vickie @ In My Head Studios said...

Julia, your term "push back technique" has me cackling!! I so do that. You wouldn't believe all the layers of stuff under stuff around the areas in which I work. Alas, the push back only works for so long until I have crowded out all my space to work. :)

Nancy Wethington said...

Love your photo this week!

Mary said...

My goodness lots of posts since I posted earlier....this site sure is growing....and it's no wonder, I love checking out everyone's creative desks.

Julia, your desk looks really busy....Isn't it great to make a mess and come out with a treasure. I just wish I had a little angel to come in and clean up my mess.

I was able to add another card today. I love productive days.

See you next week.....

Sian Evans said...

Oooh my first submission - I am overwhelmed by the amount of creative people that have such interesting workspaces. I love nosing around and seeing that I am not the only messy crafter in the world.

Sandy said...

One could get arthritis scrolling down this far. I love your desk and only wish I knew how to use half what is on It!!!!!
