What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 140


Another grainy shot from my phone.  Because it's rather too early to fiddle about with the card reader section of the PC which for some reason won't work right now.  OH well, you're used to rubbish pictures.  Now, the section of my desk that you can see shows that I have actually been making some cards.  Oh yeah.  Can't say 'I'm back' particularly, but at least I'm doing something!  Loads of rolls of glue dots at back...funny how favourites come around and go around. The button jar is being used illegaly to store a glue pen...or more correctly, a tube of PVA glue that is impossible to squeeze glue out of unless it's right in the tip.  And for a change, I can honestly say that the presence of the stapler has nothing to do with me.  When I left the house for a fun night with The Coven, it wasn't there.  So I can safely surmise that Mr D or Miss D has done something paper related this evening.  I'm posting at a ridiculous time today, to see if it helps or hinders you..please let me know!  
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!

Elizabeth said...

Hi Julia - number 2, I can't believe I've manage that??? Is it only May and I who are still up at this silly o'clock? And, bonus, you've posted early too ... working out fine for me this week but who knows what will happen next week - I might actually be in bed :) Anyway, good to see that you are crafting again and that the evidence is there for us all to see. That's it - I'm off to make a cuppa before I try to get some sleep. Happy WOYWW to you. Elizabeth x #2

Angie said...

Cant believe it ... I'm even nearer the top this week...3 ...I LOVE that you post at night as I'm not a very early riser and by 9am I am usually over the 50 mark.
You desk looks so busy ....I think it looks like a very productive crafter lives in that room.
I'm off to bed now XX

scrappystickyinkymess said...

Always interesting. Hope you are feeling better, and I totally get the stapler situation. I came home to find my printer with all red lights flashing, and a piece of lined notebook paper jammed up in it. Apparently someone tried to print something...

Have a great woyww. Me? I prefer the early morning time to midnight.

I swear Blogger has it in for me!!!! Yet AGAIN it's tried to send everyone the wrong place!!! Wey Hey so you're back.....sort of, you know what get some Flitter, it'll bring you back big style!!! Serious Playtime!!
now why is it that kids, grown and small, always assume that a crafting desk is a dumping ground? AND if you left their stuff lying around all over Their space, they would get huffy,( erm can you tell that thats been going on at mine?) and expect you to put it right....cheeky!! is what I call it, tidying up is what THEY call it!

Happy WOYWW hun, and I have been waiting since 11pm!!! LMAO, xx

L00py's Craft Creations said...

Sorry hun, can you delete no 6, I said it was playing silly B****rs!!!!

Sherry Edwards said...

Oooh I'm in the top ten!!! Really should go to bed now - love your busy, busy desk as ever!

voodoo vixen said...

Aha... we will get our detective hats on and surmise that perhaps Mr D has been making you an amazing Valentine's card... LOL... perhaps not eh? Actually, the desk doesn't look too bad from this angle... you actually have space on the mat to do something!!

Mary Ann said...

Well I'm posting this on Tuesday as I may not be able to tomorrow:)

Danielle said...

Love what's on your desk this week! It like the card I can see in the right upper corner.

This time is great for me as I always have so much going on in the mornings. This gives me a head start in viewing blogs and proved to work as of last week I was able to visit about 130 blogs.

peggy aplSEEDS said...

hmmm, i guess i have to check what time your midnight is over here! happy WOYWW, JUlia and thanks for hosting!
hugs,
peggy aplSEEDS

Katie said...

The posting early works great for me, because its right after dinner here!

That is very funny about the stapler, I think AJ would be afraid to touch something on my desk! I love the card you have up in the corner, and I think I spy some glossy accent there too!

Happy WOYWW!!

Sarah said...

I think it's a great 'what you see is what you get snap' and after my computer crashing 5 times during my WOYWW post - I'm glad to see any resemblance of a crafty zone!Hubby only comes near my desk if he wants his trousers mending...!

ourlifeinaclick.blogspot.com said...

Just linked up for the first time, thanks for hosting!

Deb said...

love that you are posting so early, it is perfect for us over the other side of the pond! very odd about the mysterious movements of the stapler, perhaps someone has made you a Valentines card while you were absent!
Happy WOYWW, Debxx #22

RosA said...

Hi Julia, That looks like a proper desk. Almost any sort of glue needs storing upside down, I reckon. Nobody touches my desk mess, but if they did, it would only be for the scissors. Your early posts work great for those of us on the other side of the planet, hehe!

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

Well, I love the earlier time, so I must learn to post in the late afternoon.

I haven't used glue dots in ages. I must get mine out and use them before they melt. I like the "illegal" use of the button jar (grin).

Create With Joy said...

Happy WOYWW to you! I am a glue dot junkie - I like the tiny ones because I find them the most versatile! Of course, I always have to be careful that neither I or the cats end up sporting those dots in our hair!!!

VonnyK said...

Your grainy photo is better than I do with an automatic idiot proof camera! Lots of interesting things on your desk. I have been trying to make cards and I have a great respect for you people who can make them. It's really hard!
Von #27 :)

Jeremy and Samantha said...

It is my 2nd week and 2 things I now know you are not in the US as I am EST and it is not midnight lol and crap I WOYWW in my title thanks for organizing such a fun and ADDICTING thing!

Stephanie said...

It looks like YOUR desk is a happy place!!

Annie Smith said...

Oooh! I think I have that same hole punch. :) I still have to try those glue dot things. I have heard nothing but good reviews. Happy WOYWW!

Helen said...

I loe your desk shot today Julia - wish I could see what the upside down stamp was, will you not learn to leave them right way up for us!!! The card looks fab, btw. Hope you had a good night out.
If you post at 1am I will have to get used to a place lower down the list as there is no way I can stay up that late to catch you, lol. Back to bed for my early morning cuppa before getting up all too soon, now!

Coleen said...

First time here Julia, thanks for visiting on my blog too. Looks like lots of fun stuff to work with on that desk.

Sylvia/LittleTreasures said...

Lots of fun things on your desk today. Looks like it's been used. Looks like your card has HERO on it. Find out tomorrow where my son will be deployed to next. Keep your fingers crossed for a great place.
Enjoy the week and hoping you receive a BIG HEART before next WOYWW.

MvM-design said...

Lovely creative messy desk this time!!
Early in the morning is a better time for posting for this hard working girl :)))

Have a great day Julia!!
And sorry for messing up my fowers(on my aj-page :))))

Morti said...

Darn it - missed linking early cos I checked just after midnight and it wasn't here! Oh well!

Have a fab day Mrs D!

inkypinkycraft said...

Gabrielle said...

Love the illegal glue pen - wondering if there's a craft Police who would arrest you for misplacement of an adhesive!?! Happy Wednesday!

ScrappnBee said...

Rediculously early works for me! LOL! Heck, whenever you show up, the party will happen! We are just happy to see you (esp. on Wednesday!) have a great Day! -Amanda 38

Neil said...

Oh well, if you start to post at midnight I'll never be high on the list! Still if that's what you want to do... so welcome back. Remember to take it easy and don't scare mr mojo away again. Your desk is looking productive and fun.

Sue said...

Hi Julia
busy desk as always,not used me glue dots in ages, never got on with them, who has been playing in your craftroom while you were out, gave them selves away leaving the stapler.
Don't mind what time you post i just post when im up, more in the 50s now its early but hey ho.
Have great day, happy WOYWW, sue,x

Ann B said...

I think your photo is very atmospheric and 'arty'. Don't forget to let us know whose been playing on your desk while you were out 'gallavanting' as my mother would say.

okienurse said...

Yay! It is letting me leave a comment this week. Some weeks it is a guess and by golly whether it has a mind of its own or I am just screwing up something! I came home tonight to find stuff out of place on my desk too! It looked like the cats had jumped up to investigate all the colorful bits on the desk! Hope you have a great week! Vickie #51

Bridget Larsen said...

A desk well shared and used is yours. So you did post this at some ungodly hour lol
Bridget #53

Jennie -The Artistic Stamper said...

JUlia, I cannot believe that you are still up at past midnight posting! LOL...desk looks very well loved this week.. and it is always odd when things get put back or "misplaced" on one's desk!!
Have a good day
xx

sandra de said...

I do like the earlier time you post. Isn't it amazing that we know when something has been moved on placed on our desk.

SueH said...

An impressive desk as always Julia, you are always so industrious!
I noticed the stapler sitting at the front of your desk but through by bleary eyes (no glasses on yet) it looked like a toy bus. Obviously now you mention it I can see it’s not but wonder for a split second what you were doing playing with boys toys. Lol.
Best find those glasses quickly me thinks.

Happy Crafting!

Lunch Lady Jan said...

I'm still in my PJs, fluffy socks and bleary eyed, and I've descended to 58, LOL!! It'll be what's it gonna be :D
Hugs, LLJ #58 xx

scrappymo! said...

Oh Julia...I think I spy a valentines card...maybe for your Hero...Mr D???
I like that little easel to prop it up...I am always losing things on my desk...
Looks like you have been busy creating...
It's my second week and I'm already addicted! Love that you organize this!!!

My name is Cindy said...

At least the stapler was there (I assume it is yours?). When other people craft in my house it usually means I will spend a week going around their bedrooms retrieving various bits and pieces. Especially scissors, which is why I have so many pairs. You probably had all your congrats already but I have been away - was pleased to see you featured in Craft Stamper magazine but wonder how big this is gonna get - 7.30am and I look set to be n0 58 or so..... you've created a monster LOL. Go Julia!!

Dragon said...

Boo I could have posted last night if I have re-looked after catching your url for my link... anyway, whatever just keep on posting... SO glad your mojo has come home and has given you such a busy desk
Frankie

Annie said...

Thats what I call a busy desk Julia [or do I mean messy?]. No finished cards in sight though so I guess you could have just messed it up for us :-)
Hugs,
A x

Kate said...

Lots of fun crafty things on your desk, how can you not be inspired? Apologies I had already posted when I read that WOYWW was needed in the title and I was being all creative with it instead ;)
** Kate **

Sunshine Girl said...

Oooh lovely busy desk there and I spy a distress stain there too! such fun! I havent joined in again this week as am running around like a headless chicken here and not doing much crafting - last time I joined in I couldnt seem to comment on many people either - blooming blogger! Hope you are well and have a fab week.

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

...looks like you've been a busy bee, and have you moved your desk? view of garden gone?...have a fab day Julia...Mel :)

Doone said...

ooh Mrs D shaking it up with a variation in publication times, get you,

grainy shots are good and usually follow vodka shots featuring strangely angled and entangled same sex teenager friends, now that would shock us a grainey drunken shot of mrS and and mR d in a valentines wowywwer desk shocker clinch....

Doone said...

what is wow ywwer?

a bit like an as yer were?

Claire said...

BUSY bee desk this morning... looks good.... and I wonder who was using your desk..and what they sneakily made !!! mm

Jacqueline said...

Ooooh another busy desk! Lovely! Funny how those 'elves' seem to leave stuff on your desk when you are not looking though....that seems to happen to me quite a lot at the moment!! lol...

Take care and Happy WOYWW

Jackie x

Doone said...

Joanne said...

Well last week I got up early and posted at 2mins past 6am only to find you had posted on Tuesday!! today I've posted at 8.45am and am #74!! It's easy to schedule a post, it's the linking that is the difficult bit. anyway, with all the time differences in the world who cares, you win some, you lose some, it's all fun no matter what. Hugs Joanne xx

Polly Polkadot said...

I'm off chainsawing this morning(!) that is why I am early, yet my number is still #79.

Twiglet said...

Bit slow this morning but once I get into overdrive there will be no stopping me! Have a great day. x Jo

CraftygasheadZo said...

Your desk is full of fun things to play with, always intrigued by everything. I'm really enjoying joining in each Wednesday, it's great fun. Thanks Zo x

Sandra (Stamping For Pleasure) said...

WOW - that desk is in super chaos mode!

I've actually posted my REAL workdesk today because I lost the craft desk photo! Oops! xxx

Happy WOYWW everyone. xxx

Craftgirl said...

Lots going on this week Julia on your desk. Nothing completed yet?
HAPPY WOYWW

JB said...

It looks like you're doing messy crafting at the mo! I can't upload pics. at present as we've got a new puter so will have to wait till next week for woyww. Your Dunnit's may want to know you can get coloured staples now, depending on who used it lol. Happy woyww xx

Erika said...

A busy and productive desk this week. Happy crafting.
Hugs, Erika.

Kim Dellow said...

I can't believe it! I got in at No. 83! Woop! Erm, Oh, No.83 :( I'm always bringing up the rear Tee hee! Mmm I wonder what that mysterious stapler is up to? :) Kimx

Sam said...

Morning. Do you think the lickle Craftlings have been in your room? They are like Borrowers but they live under your Craft room, area, desk or whatever!!
Happy Wednesday!
xx

Sam said...

OMG!! I just caught the "you might also like" and it says "8 months till Christmas"!!! It has given me palpitations girl!! Far too early in the day for shocking things like that!! Need a lie down and a cup of tea, though I will have to drink it when I am sat up or it will dribble down my neck!! LOL!!

Trish Latimer said...

How i love to see a messy desk! Although, no such thing as a messy desk...just a busy and productive one eh? Happy WOYWW!!!

April said...

Nice to see you have been busy making cards. Lots of goodies on show there. x

Jackie said...

My desk resembles yours this week and I'm pleased that I'm not the only 'untidy' worker :)

Carolyn Phillips said...

It is amazing how things appear and disappear from our desks isn't it! :D I was trying to make out what your card is stood on, a bookrest maybe?

I agree as well that woyww is all about the reciprocal nosiness.

Laura said...

Hi, another great WOYWW of organised chaos. I'm not sure if it's brads or buttons on show but they look lovely. Have a super day, Laura

Ohhh Snap said...

You are glue dot wealthy :D. Love that card on the right, good to see you've been busy! #80

Pam said...

Busy desk today hun. Hugs Pam x

Mary Pat Siehl said...

love all the stamping goodies on your desk!!!

first time to play along with you all! so excited! thanks!!! -mp

JoZart said...

Great creative mess up there but god to know you are making some cards. I thought that blue stapler was a toy blue bus in my early morning stupor!!
Off to the airport very soon so flying round a few desks before I fly for real.
JoZarty x

Nicola said...

Can't wait to catch up with everyone's desks again this week :) x

Di said...

Hi Julia - oh I do love to see a creative mess :)

Re. your SD card reader problem. If the reader seems to have given up the ghost, never fear. You can buy a little gizmo like a USB stick, it goes into a USB port but has a slot in the side for you to stick your SD card in. I know this 'cos my SD card reader spring mechanism became unreliable (over use from blogging!) and it was a life saver. Having said that, I just used it earlier and have now lost the flipping lid somewhere on my desk!! Di xx

Mutley said...

Just found you after reading the Craft Stamper mag. Great idea for a cheer up middle of the week. Glad your desk is busy. xxx

Minxy said...

Hi Julia, glad to see some sort of playing has been occurring on your desk, I mess without the play first is like a cocktail without the alcohol.. it taste ok but where's the fun in it!

Karen said...

I'm back, taking it slow, a bit at a time. Nice to see so many new faces, I won't be visiting everyone, but I'll do as many as I can. Have fun everyone!

Peggy said...

here we go again.. thanks for doing this I love visiting. takse me several days to get to them all I enjoy the journey!

Jinny Holt said...

Ohhh I do like messy space,used to do this last year,so am setting it all up again,hope to visit all over the next week-happy creating all

Lisa-Jane said...

I like the idea of Ickle Craftlings coming to place random items in the way of your photos, a ladder, a stapler, what will it be next week? I don't thing it matters what time you post, I am just grateful to be able to join in at some point. Glad your mojo is returning, its good to see you at play xx (why so few comments for so many links? Naughty people ;-))

Jaki Morris said...

Yay it's Wednesday again my favourite day of the week!

Hope you're keeping warm enough to craft?

Off to hop now

Jaki #seventysomething!

Nicky said...

Happy Wednesday - hope you had a good time with the coven - I dont mind when you post as I schedule mine and then when I get a spare 5 mins link it up - have a great week

StampDancer said...

Looks like you have a fun pile of stuff on your desk. Congrats to being back -- I'm in a card making mode also (as well as being distracted by other projects that take my fancy - LOL).

lisa said...

I feel like a real stop in bed posting at lunchtime when everyone has stopped up especially. Call me daft but I love my sleep too much especially in this chilly weather!!! Anyway, we had a power cut last night just after midnight. One minute I was engrossed in my book, the next plunged into darkness so I'd have been in the middle of linking if I'd stayed up!!!
I thought you were bathed in glorious sunshine when I first investigated your desk Julia, but I'm guessing it's a light. The glue dots companies must love you, I've never seen so many roles on one desk.
Happy WOYWW
Hugs Lisax #112

TangolikeRaindrop said...

Your card looks great and your space looks fabulously creative. :) Glue dots are so much fun, aren't they!

Barb King said...

Got it up early today for me! Thanks for the fun #117

Sarah said...

Great post!! Lots to see on your desk this week!! Why do we always end up with such a teeny space left on our desk to actually work in and the rest is full of stuff??! #114

Lori said...

Julia - I love that you host WOYWW - your cards look great!

Jacqui said...

Your desk always looks so 'productive'

Jingle said...

You have some super fun stuff on your desk today!

Hazel said...

Lol! at the button jar having an illegal immigrant! Can't believe I'm #121 and it's not that late in the day ... WOYWW is so popular - you do a great job, Julia - you have enthused so many crafters to share, which in turn means that we all get inspiration from one another - thank you x

Becky said...

I don't think your photo looks grainy at all, but maybe I'm a bit bleary eyed still this morning :) I always find things moved around on my desk too, usually from my oldest, but sometimes from the husband....

Rachel K said...

Hey, you're a crafter, not a photographer, so we could say that just posting a photo is huge!

Lisa said...

love the look of craftiness in the making Julia... you are an inspiration to us all

Happy crafting

Happy Wednesday! I skipped last week, but missed it and jumped back in this week. Hope everyone is having a good week.

Scrappydiva said...

Wow! I've posted a WOYWW for the first time in months! If I can do it again next week I'll be on a roll!

Karen said...

Oooh I love all the creativity on your desk this week especially the gorgeous card that I can see on the right, its lovely :)

Have a great WOYWW and a fab week, Karen #90

Yours Artfully said...

I wonder what they used your stapler for??? At least it was just a stapler and not more valuable stuff!!

Hi there Julia,

I missed not posting last week so was determined to post this week! I'm number 131 -- holy moly!!!

Your desk looks like mine! haaa

Terrie said...

Thanks for the visit - yep, it might be time to actually put that protective sheet to use and start a new one - both sides are pretty covered. Another fun Wednesday, thanks!

Love your busy desk! :) It looks so familiar to me :)
Happy WOYWW!

Hi Julia, from your post I think I'm in the same mode as you - trying! Hope you had a good night with the coven. ikki

Charlene said...

Yikes...your desk looks like mine but you were much braver. I'm super late today..hubby commandeered the office this a.m.

Scrapcollectr said...

Seeing as how I was supposed to be somewhere "10-ish" and it is currently "10-ish," this has to be quick. Love the glue pen in the button jar... we crafters can easily find a spot that suits our needs! *smile*

Kim said...

Too funny! Everyone is posting how early they are..I post 2 day's ahead of usual, and I'm close to the same spot! I must have free borders; an immigrant glue pen would never even be noticed! Your desk is looking so tidy this week-I'd love to see the cards close up. Have a great weekend.

famfa said...

Robin Panzer Art said...

Jules the desk looks deliciously active. Love the colors on the card peeking out in the upper right corner. I almost forgot to comment here today as I was eager to visit as many desks as possible before I had to leave for a tennis tournament out of State today. Thanks as always for hosting this wonderful event! ~Happy WOYWW (#30) Robin Panzer Art Studio 33

The Crafty Chick said...

I would like to think that the stapler just went snap snap snap and jumped onto your desk to be the feature of the pic this week. It's obv he's suffering from lack of attention syndrome, and maybe he needs refilling. Just give him some love this week OK...
Leandra

DoodleSuze said...

Daren't share mine but I just showed your picture to Hubby with the words "See I'm not the only one lol!" ... His reply "Not the only S**t Pit then!" Made me laugh so I just had to share lol!

Sheri - confessed craftaholic said...

Thanks again for the fun weekly tour, Julia. I love glue dots! And I think I have button envy from your jar of buttons!

Sandy said...

Well this was fun - I was double dared to do this so here I am meeting all kinds of new people. Thanks Brenda!!!!!
Sandy

Hardwick Creations said...

Gosh Julia, it seems you weren't the only one to get an early start!!
Your desk does look very busy this week. Looks like the crop-a-dile even got a bit of a workout. Love the button doo dads. Thanks for letting us share what we do.

Linda said...

Your desk looks like mine did before I cleaned it. I lol about the illegal storage of the glue pen.

toni said...

I thought it was just me with a work desk so full there's barely room to craft! my first WOYWW post after seeing your 'blog of the month in Craft Stamper, keep up the good work x

Princess Judy Palmer said...

Hello, I'm from the Button Jar Police and I'm here to cite you for your infraction of co-mingling glue with buttons. You'll have to appear before the magistrate and there is bound to be fine, possibly jail time....

Michele's Scrapy Creations said...

wonderful desk! love your button jar even with glue! i do that too myself. i took closer picture of those boxes you were inquiring. :)Happy Wednesday!

Paula Gale said...

Hello Mrs D.

It's so nice to be back with you this week. I've been absent with so many distractions and a lack of focus to boot!

I seriously must have attempted to write about 3 or 4 blog posts to join in over the last few months (I know its not a lot) and each time I start, things just happen with me which stops me in my tracks! I've even had my post this week on the go since last week!

I trust you are well and still staging this wonderful phenomenon each week. What a committment. ou rock!!!

loads of hugs

Paula x x x

Nice and messy. The photo isn't that bad (many of mine with a 'real' camera are much worse LOL).

Happy WOYWW! Thanks for hosting all of us! Boy can I relate to the glue bottle standing up in something. Clever ideas to use the button jar! And I can't wait to see your card cretions! dix---

Julie said...

Tons of people linking up today! That is awesome! I am late as usual! Lol! So glad you were able to make some cards this week! I have only just begun on my card making journey!! :) I am loving it so far!!

OMG! Maybe the traveling Gnome has come by early for Valentine's Day? I have noticed that 6 of my garden Gnomes have disappeared and I have two just wondering about the ivy and roses. It seems that every week, I have a new Gnome to come visit and one has traveled onward?
What a fabulous messy desk! I just love it! It's creativity at it's finest! Hugs to you all for the wonderful inpsiration!!

Fiona@staring at the sea said...

Well I said the desks were multiplying and they really are! I don't mind what time you post Julia. I'm always way down the list!!

This is such a fun and popular weekly event. It's not even noon here in California and I'm number 171! Super to meet so many other people. Julia, I'm sorry, but I hit "tab" after my name and the site jumped and entered me at the bottom of WYOWW 139. I don't know how to delete it, so I left it there and just relinked again for today's 140. I guess it's sort of okay since my post is a continuation of last week's, but I'm sorry if it messes anything up. Thanks always for hosting this!

Thanks for the latest look at your desk. I must get back to mine and finish my card, but I hope to stop by and visit a few more people this week.

Charlie said...

I am late - and I had to move to our dinner table as the light in my scraproom is rotten in the evening when it comes to taking pictures - but for ONCE I remembered to show something on a wednesday. =0)

You are way ahead of me Miss Julie, on making cards.

Lisa-Jane said...

Anne said...

Buy desk and your photo is better than a lot of mine using a camera. I am later than ever getting on here think I might have to wait up a while next week and get in early. Anne x

Lou said...

Evening Julia, haven't managed to visit many desks today, which is a bit of a shame after 3 weeks of 150+ oh well hopefully Wednesday won't come around again so quickly (where does the rest of the week go?) and i might get chance to visit everyone. Thank you for the fab advice on the glimmer mists i have no idea what to do with them so was going to look on utube for some tutorials so i will try your technique, and see what backgrounds i can make Hope you have a great week. Lou xx

Sheena said...

Hi Julia!
Great to see that you're busy and crafting away. That is a lot of glue dots! And what better place to keep a glue pen?!

Oh yeah Julia! We're in the saddle making something here. Very obvious fun station. Love the shot. *smiles* Norma

RosA said...

Hi again Julia,
Those water soluble oil pastels (Reeves brand) cost less than $14 (AUST). So, VERY reasonable, and they are good enough for me, at this time. (I know those Caran d'Ache ones are exhorbitantly expensive!) I'm very pleased with the way these work. And there are quite a few interesting projects in "Art to Wear"!

The hero card looks very interesting and the buttons in the foreground and oh, most everything else! Patsy

sandee said...

Maybe Mr. D was stapling the curtains shut so you wouldn't notice the ladder ;)

Franka Benjaminsen said...

Thanks for visiting my blog and yes, I'm glad to be back again. Good do hear you like the coloured stamps. It motivates me to go on with the learning process and try to use these new materials on different ways.

Shashi Nayagam said...

What a cool way of sharing ones mess lol! Love it and I shall definitely go nosing around then I won't feel guilty of my mess lol!

Neet said...

Well, it is obvious I missed the early call but where the heck I was at the time I have no idea. Number 195 - that is shameful for me.
Lovely industrious desk Julia, as who it is that has been at it.
Might be able to find mine some time next week (but bet it is not tidy as I will have to craft somewhere else)
Hugs, Neet xx

Angie said...

OMG JD...196 links ...could not believe it when Neet dropped by saying she was 195 ...Is this a record ????

Phew...
