What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 145

Sorry about the early lack of Mr Linky....I do not know enough to explain it...nor do I know why Blogger is causing me stress with 'editing' this post....no doubt, this too shall pass!
Well now, since last Wednesday there hasn't been a huge amount going on at my desk.  It's fair to say that I've used it - to write envelopes to send badges in, and to get ready for various things..but no real crafting.  Hmm, this needs to be rectified.  Particularly as it's Mother's Day (OK, Mothering Sunday) this weekend here in dear old Blighty. Luckily, I need to make two cards.
You can see the Union Jack hanging at back - it reads 'Happy, Happy Days' and is just lovely, huh.  The ream of printer paper is just that and NOT where I asked it to be put.  The clear box and side stacked lid is the detritus of a workshop - stuff waiting to be decanted back into drawers and to be cleaned.  Yawn.  There's a roll of sticky labels which I've been writing addresses on.  If you're a WOYWWer and want a badge, email me:
juliadunnit@me.com   There's no charge, but I need your address!  And patience!


A ray of hope and interest lies on my desk.  The green book is what I'm working on in the Altered Book online class that Elizabeth is teaching.  I've actually done the reinforcement and end pages.  I know - I'm almost up to date.  Sadly, with that only.  I feel horridly behind with everything this week. So,  I'm having a 'meet a stranger off the internet' day out today. Might as well be hung for a sheep as a lamb, huh!
Come on then, join us if you dare.  And frankly, if you've seen mine, why wouldn't you?  Upload a pic of your desk at your blog and then come back here and link us to it.  We'll visit, slowly and not in huge numbers, but between us, we've become all-seeing! Please put WOYWW in your blog post title and try to link to the specific post.  Ta.8no bar handles ref 106.43.601

Do we have a Mr. Linky this week, or did he stay on standard time (we in the States went to daylight time this week).

scrappymo! said...

Those bits and bobs left over from a class or workshop are such a tedious job to put back in their respective places. i tend to stack themup till I have a largish basket full to the brim and then I do it! Or at least that is the paln. I have a big jumble of sorting on my picture today but just off to the right is the basket I just mentiond...I think that is about 2or 3 hours work to sort...Uggggg. That is why we leave them to stack up...right???
No linky but I am waiting patiently...I didn't lose any weight last Friday but maybe the absent Mr Linky will help boost the exercise level and weigh in tomorrow will reflect it...See, I'll just call you my personal trainer!!!

Dragon said...

Anyway, I woz 'ere... shall come back when my linky is out playing... book is interesting ... you are doing ok - don't stress

Lovely busy desk there, Julia! I thought it was just me, missing Mr. Linky this week (I've been having endless problems with Beastly Blogger) but it seems I'm not alone. Sorry I didn't make it last week.

love the desk this week...looks like mine...my package arrived safe and sound today...thanks so much! i am going to a big crop weekend next friday and saturday and the notebook is now packed and ready to go, along with the other trinkets...thanks again for the wonderful surprise! The tissue wrap is awesome too...might just have to figure out a project for that as well ;)

Lisa said...

I know what you mean about the tedious job of trying to find a home for everything. Lately i have been trying to figure out why i put anything away i cant seem to find it when i do and im probably just going to use it again soon.
Hope you have a beautiful Mothering Sunday.

Thank you so much for the beautiful badge! Well done on the book, you are a bit further along than I am, but I have hopes for this week.

Speaking of weeks, are we doing another PIF? Week 156 is hurtling it's way towards us!

Bubbles said...

Anyway, would love for you to visit my blog when you have a momnet or 2.

So much going on Julia--as usual! No wonder you sometimes feel behind. Glad you got a start on your altered book. I'm more or less just reinforcing, etc. as I go...here's hoping it doesn't crumble around me at the end! Have a great week. xx

Neesie said...

I get the gist that to have a number is important!
With mixing the system up with my number last week (which was my first visiting WOYWW) I fear I may be jinxing your system!!?!?? :-$

So here's me again without a number....!

I can't seem to make it into a proper blue coloured link, but I hope you will visit. I am off now back to bed till later, when I will read everyone else's blog and leave a proper comment. I hope you are well, Julia, and it is just a blogger glitch.

Sandra (Stamping For Pleasure) said...

Mr Linky still appears to be asleep!
But Happy WOYWW everyone
Hugs, Sandra View my desk HERE!

Mary said...

Julia, I think Mr. Linky is off making a Mothering Sunday card. Your desk looks very busy and busy means creative fun. Sometimes my desk looks so busy, I have to dig deep to find the creative part! Have a wonderful week!

sandra de said...

I think we are all a tad lost without mr. linky.

Elizabeth said...

Morning Julia, oh dear, your post does read as though you would almost rather be anywhere than at your desk today and I certainly empathise with you on stuff waiting to be put into drawers, etc., I've just spent almost the entire week doing just that but in my new bigger craft room - you are invited to come along and see the result :) I do hope you enjoy your date with a stranger and come back refreshed and raring to go. In the meantime, no Mr Linky so here is a link to my desk:

Have a great day out! Be careful with that "stranger" . . . just sayin!

That's a, err, VERY creative desk you have there Julia. xxx

Beckyt said...

Hi Julia

My WOYWW badge arrived last week and I was delighted I cant wait to wear it to my next crafty event :) Thanks so much, cant wait to see what mothers day cards you make.

Hugs Becky

Helen said...

lol, and there was me, body clock waking me at 12.30 am to link - and no link! your desk is certainly piled high - hope you can get some crafting done soon (somewhere, after you've pushed back presumably...) I've done my niche but not the cover prep on my book - so between us, we're done!!

Ann B said...

Yay, Mr Linky is back. Sorry Blogger is stressing you out Julia but all's well now and you can relax and enjoy your day. I haven't done the reinforcing bit yet, just glued my niche pages together and done the pretty bit at the front, the reinforcing is next on the list.

okienurse said...

OMG! I got a Mr. Linky thing but couldn't get here to post until just now. Blogger has made some more changes this week and as usual is messing up everything in the process for awhile. Gotta say I do like the easier way of posting a picture. I received the button Tuesday in the mail! Thank you for sending it to me. Vickie #4/or whatever!

Bridget Larsen said...

hmmm 65 comments on your post and only 11 links including mine...are they voyeurs lol.
well your desk looks like mine this week, just a dumping ground, did the big white van take you out and keep you busy??

I love that you're working on an altered book. Can't wait to see how it turns out. There's an altered book in my woyww too. It's an old atlas I'm using as a journal. Have fun with it!

Annie said...

Looks like it's an early bird that catches the worm this week. I'm well up the numbers on Mr Linky with you putting him on later :-)

Morning - glad my internet failed me early as Mr linky wasn't there but he is so I can link up! Woo hoo! Desk is looking good, love the union jack! Zo xx 34

Sam said...

Morning Miss! Sorry I haven't been here for a week or three! But I do have a tidier desk this week so does that make up for it at all?

If it makes you feel any better, you are further on your altered book than I am!!

Careful with your "stranger" and look for a white bag on the head with two eye holes!! Just sayin'!

Have fun and tell the lovely Jan I am waiting for her call as to where and when we are meeting!!

Jeremy and Samantha said...

Oh my with my DR appt when you get up (way ahead of me and fix Mr. Linky) then you may even get your 2 cards made and I I will be jealous. I will include my post bc eveyone else will but I am sure we will have to come back and add it to a fixed mr linky. Have a wonderful wednesday.

Trish Latimer said...

Morning!
Now, i liked the lack of linky first thing, it means the list gets shaken up a bit!!! People that just start at number one and work their way through the desks will lose the will to live before reaching the high numbers, so those people have less views! I start my blog hop at about number 50 and work downwards, so get to see loads of fab desks as well as going back to the 'usual suspects' (!!!!) at the beginning!!
Oh and I can sense your frustration with your desk this week Julia! Hope the rest of the week is more crafty! Trish xxxxxxxxxxxxx

ScrappnBee said...

Sounds like a cool class!It is always so interesting to see where different holidays lie. Our Mother's Day is in May! Glad that the Mr Linky is fixed! Have a great WOYWW!-Amanda #40

Gosh I thought I would be early this week - does everybody stay up all night?
Will be back later to have a good nosey look round.

Redanne said...

Hi Julia, thanks for putting the link in for me. I am sorry but I have two numbers now (my fault) as I did not realise you did me too. Love that large yellow tape dispenser on your desk, I bet that doesn't run out quickly! Anne at 27 and 48 (Have tried to delete 48 but it won't let me).

Lisa-Jane said...

Gosh your poor desk needs some crafting luvving Julia... I hope you can find a moment this week for some cuttn' and stickn'. I have no idea what that little phrase was on the end of your post though...

Pauline said...

Sorry Julia I've had a tech hitch and put wrong address in linky so I'm on twice. :-( I promise to do better next time . I can't seem to remove the wrong one either ! I'm fine I understand if you want to give me detention or lines ! Have a great week

Kezzy said...

Hi Julia, I have the same problem, ask someone to take something upstairs into craft room and next thing I know, I go upstairs and they have dumped it right on top of all my craft doh lol. It can become quite stressful being behind, but I'm sure you will catch up. Loving those buttons in the jar and I'm loving the red dotty thingy (not sure if large button?) in the clear boxes at the back. Happy woyww :-) Kezzy xxx

Jacqueline said...

Hey up! I'm baaaack!!lol....so sorry for dropping off the face of the planet for a while, just couldn't seem to find enough hours in the day or energy for that matter to do ALL the things Ineeded!!

Anyway, all is done now and I can maybe 'relax' a bit!

Going to spend all day bloghopping to catch up!!

Hope everything's ok with you and yours Julia,

Take care

MaggieC said...

Just so long as you are well, Julia, and thank you so much for logging me in to the gang. Isn't it always he case that if you ask someone else to put things into your room, it never goes in the right place? anything for me usually ends up on my chair. I arrive with arms full and can't even sit down to recover. bless. I can't really moan as he does so much to help me in all ways. See you soon, and I hope your week improves after the techie problem with Mr Linky. xx Maggie #17

BetteK said...

Sat for ages looking for the Union flag and then realised I was searching the wrong photo! Am looking forward to seeing your altered book ... something I have been meaning to have a go at for years but never quite managed to summon up the courage. One day, maybe! Love Debbie xXx

Polly Polkadot said...

ooo, new instructions, I'll try and follow it next week. OH on holiday, so he is doing the school run, what luxury!

Hi Julia, sounds like you've had a hectic week, hope you can find some time this week to enjoy crafting. Thanks again for setting up this wonderful initiative, btw - I'm loving it (I'm just nosy, really)! Best wishes, Deb's Pen Pot

Kate said...

I don't want to worry you, but there appears to be some sort of UFO shining lights in through your craft room window!!!!!!!!!!!

Elizabeth said...

Hi Julia, Mr Linky wasn't the only one not working properly this morning, I'm now linked twice, once as Elizabeth at #13- that was me :( and the other is the one you did for me as Silverscrapper at #32 - feel free to delete one if you wish. Many thanks also for the comment on my new craft room - you can come and play whenever you like :) Elizabeth #13/32

Peggy Cain said...

Happy to see all is well with WOYWW I wanted to thank you SOOOOO much for my button I got it Monday I think I'll use it on one of my Mixed Media Collage works thanks have a great day!

Karen said...

Mr Linky seems to be working fine now - well it was with me!!! Hope your 'lagging behind world' catches up soon Julia!!! Karen 78 x

lisa said...

You see when you have a lie in and let the rush pass, then all the technical glitches are sorted. Mr Linky is now present and correct. Perhaps he was having a lie in and a cuppa too!!
You look as though you are having a badge frenzy, Julia. We all appreciate your hard work so much.
Everyone seems to be taking this AB class, must check it out.
Have fun on your blind date!!
Happy WOYWW

Joynana said...

Hi Julia, you have been busy with other things, but that is so ok. I have got to send an email so that I can get a badge. I do want one. And I am so loving your blog. I get to see so much wonderful creativity during the week. I keep my note pad by the computer for ideas for future projects. Love it.

Barb King said...

I'm linked up, thanks.

Paula Gale said...

YAY - Julia, I've managed to join in today, that in part is because I've not been to bed!!!

Badge, did you say badge? Pin one on me girlfriend!!!

I think you probably have my address - but i'll draft you a line.

Did you per-chance, photograph this in the middle of the night? Nice to have seen your mess - snap. Mines similar.

Hugs,

I hope you find some time later in the week to work on your book. Happy Mother's Day!

Lori said...

Julia - - You keep me inspired to create during the week. Even when I don't sit at my desk it gets me out taking photos. Happy Wednesday!

Angie said...

Julia I missed the memo what's a badge? I'm always late to the party but I'll claim it's because a lot of the party is in a different time zone! Can't wait to see what happens with the book, I've never been able to convince myself to alter a perfectly good book!

Jingle said...

Oooo! I can't WAIT to see what you end up doing with your altered book! I'm sure it will be lovely!

Susan ~ Killam Creative said...

Good morning Julia! Nice and busy there. I love the "yawn" - so true! Last night I cleaned up from a disaster and all the accumulating stuff. Once the pile on the corner of the desk falls onto the floor *ahem*, I have to put it away.

So mysterious about your Internet stranger - do tell!

I'm waiting for the dog to come back in then I'll take a pic and post. Having the first coffee and trying to wake up...

Cheers,
Susan

A busy desk as usual, Julia - glad to see that I'm not the only one that has reams of paper dumped. I missed out on WOYWW last week, but was determined to take part today, but time is limited, so visiting others and comments will have to wait till the end of the week. I haven't forgotten that I need to let you have my address to receive a badge - will get round to it one day soon! x

Linda said...

Happy Wednesday!! Looking forward to visiting everyone's workdesk;D

Hi Julia,

Your post made me laugh. I wondered what the flag said. I do love it's colors.

I'm not participating today but will stop in on a few desks.

Hugs,
Kay

I see the messy desk fairies have been by your place. I hate that when things end up on my desk instead of where they are supposed to be. Why can't they just get up and walk their happy butt over to the correct place? I didn't realize (or maybe I did?) that you were doing the altered book tutorial too.

Charlene said...

Happy Wednesday, Julia..Don't feel badly...I have two online classes that I had to print out because I never got to them when they were live..arrrrgh!

Whimcees said...

Hello!

I can relate to being late - having just had a "the faster I go the behinder I get" week so far! I am going out for a bit today to enjoy our 78 degree weather and take a much needed break! Wishing you a happy day today!

Hugs,

Barbara Diane

Chrysalis said...

Hi Julia - thanks for the chance to share again. Love to all x

Monica said...

I signed up and now will see what happens.

Sheilagh said...

Better late than never, that's me. Lots of lovley spaces today.

misteejay said...

Lots going on on your desk, crafty or not.

I think Blogger is becoming a victim of its own success and doesn't seem to be able to cope with all the use it is getting these days...still very frustrating though, especially when you are trying to get something done in a limited amount of time.

SuziesImaginarium said...

I too am following an online class...a quilting sampler, wish I could say I'm caught up....4 blocks behind isn't so bad, is it?

Yours Artfully said...

There appears to be a huge interest in altered books again these last few months......hope you enjoy making yours as much as I have mine.

Meeting a stranger off tinternet sounds a wee bit dodgy. If you're not here next week, we'll all know that it didn't go well!!!!

Craftychris said...

I am soooo late again. But I made it! I didn't last week which was no good at all. My stupid M.E. dictates when and if I get things done! Your desk is always so full of interesting stuff and I hope your 'meet a stranger off the internet' day out is fun - Let us know how it went - we do like the goss! xx

Beachstudio said...

Happy Mother's Day!

Jacqui said...

Goodness 145 links - no way I will get around all those I'm afraid

Monica said...

My first WOYWW

Whimcees said...

Hello again!

That's my desk at the BEGINNING of the project - when I started to trace my first templates! :<)

Hopefully you will like them when you see the END results - days later! :<)

Hugs,

Barbara Diane

Bernice said...

Oh good - Mr Linky is working again - I came on last night to be early for a change but didn't know what to do - so I'm way back down the list this week again - I had to wait until I got home from work!

debby4000 said...

Are you sure there's a desk can't see it under all that stuff!
luv

Serendipity Stamping said...

Oh yes a lovley piled up desk this week. I haven't even been able to get out and geta book to alter yet. Everyone will be done and I will just be starting. So goes life. Anxious to see what you do with yours. #148

Darnell J Knauss said...

Sorry you had troubles with Mr. Linky. No worries for me coming so late to the party. It's great fun to see new "faces" each week!

toni said...

Good luck with your posting, you've taken on a big job but you're going to make a lot of people happy Have a good crafty week x

Judie savage-lovell said...

I love reading your posts each week gives me courage to show my mess lol, thank you for doing this every week xx

Hugs
Judie xx

Jo said...

You've made my desk seem tidy :) I do love a messy desk though. Sorry to hear blogger was being a pain for you today x

Anne said...

Hi Julia I'm late again I know but hey ho get there in the end. Thanks for the visit to my blog earlier in the week. Yours is a busy, busy desk! Happy WOYWW. Anne x

Miriam said...

I'm a virgin to this!!! Never shared my messy work space before!! Fun to share and see what others are up to too!!

Bella said...

OK, I asked google and found how to turn that horrid word verification off and I hope I have got it right. I had no idea it was even on as it does not ask the owner of the blog for verification as it knows who you are!

Caz said...

Glad Mr Linky was working as I can't put links in comments!!
My desk is tidy for the second week in a row!!

Annie Smith said...

Hi Julia, your desk is the messiest I've seen it so far! Good work! :) I love people that can handle a good pile of clutter.

Kathryn said...

Whooo, I'm so late today! Almost skipped but, thought better of it. Second day of constant rain here so it's a perfect excuse to sit and visit on blogger!
Not much room on your desk for even writing labels! You must write very small HA!!! Sorry, teehee.
Have a great week!
Hugs!

I saw the familiar glasses this week:-)
I am late and behind on everything since my son had brain surgery. Thanks for the heads up on the word verification I have turned it off. Whew. Have a great weekend.

Fiona@staring at the sea said...

Very mysterious. I remember the first time I met a 'stranger' from the internet, who is now a great friend, my Mum was beside herself! I had to ring her when I got there and again when I left alive!

Debs Willis said...

Like the Union Jack, but shame about the lack of crafting! I'm pretty late linking today, so blog hopping wil have to wait til tomorrow xx

Carolyn Phillips said...

Well the benefit of being late is that Mr Linky is fixed.

You seem to be even busier than me at the moment, hope it all calms down soon.

Doone said...

why have I got less time now I don't work on Wednesdays? I nearly failed to link and will certainly now be visiting late...

Tis a strange phenomenon,

Sadly I have no cards to make for Sunday but we raise two glasses in very fond memory, and I get spoiled which is even better,

I missed the linky malarky...

Scrappydiva said...

Sorry I'm late linking up! It's been a busy day. All linked up now and I'm heading to bed. I shall come back tomorrow to have a hop around the other blogs.

Jennifer Joanne said...

This is fun! Just posted my first WOYWW. Loving seeing everyone's desk. Thanks for doing this Julia!

Shoshi said...

Just managed to come back on here again and found Mr. Linky is back, so I've signed up. Been busy today so haven't had a chance to go desk hopping.

karen said...

Sorry to hear that Mr Linky was acting up on you today. I still am way way late on the list but it still is Wednesday here in Canada!
Have fun with your altered book!
xoxo Karen #175 (!)

Sylvia/LittleTreasures said...

And "Happy, Happy Days" to you Ms. Julia..love your wit. It's late here and the latest I've ever posted, Where does a day go? Almost breaking 200 peeping at WOYWW..amazing. Have a wonderful week.

Neesie said...

Sorry to be so late linking up now that Mr Linky is back to work...

I was locked out of my car in an hour stay carpark this morning. Just a tad of stress but a hero came to rescue me and I'm home now...going to have quiet time at my desk.

Thanks for sorting everything Julia you're another hero :D #178

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

Looks like lots of stuff is happening on your desk! I'm really looking forward to seeing how your altered book comes along! "see" you next week! ~Jen (PS - it's still Wednesday here in Canada!)

Daisy236 said...

Ooopps! I love taking part but I forgot to add my name to Mr Linky! I hope its not too late to join in??

Hardwick Creations said...

I'm really sad that I'm so snowed with work that I haven't been able to check out anyone's blog or write mine for over 2 weeks!!

Your desk looks busy, like always...I hope they are sweets in that jar to the left of the scotch tape gun!!

Thanks for sharing Julia.

Hopefully I will get time to do my blog next week!

Diana Evans said...

oh I am always so excited to make it here and link ....then I forget to leave a comment!!!! Thank you for hosting and I love the busy space you have!!!!!

Neet said...

"You must be logged in to comment with that address" is all I can get when I try to leave a comment on Brenda's blog (#12).
I must have tried 10 times over the past two days - have logged off and on again to no avail.
Anyone know what is going on?
Hugs, Neet x #19

Kim said...

Not much crafting by me either! I can't wait to see more of your AB! I havent done one of those in years! Keep meaning to do one for Christmas...every year....

Caro said...

Hi Julia, This is a belated WOYWW peek and a thank you for my lovely badge and bag! I did recognise it from my time as a WOYWWer! Thank you so much, and thank you for sharing. Caro xxx

Sallyh said...

This was my first WOYWW, and I can't believe how much fun I had looking at other peoples crafty desks.

BJ said...

Hi Julia, thank you for you comment on my first entry to WOYWW. I also played badminton last night and am amazed that you and others found this quite unusual - LOL! Just wondering what the format here it, if someone comments on your entry ought you to reply to them on their blog too. Should we try to visit ALL the entries - can't believe there are hundreds...........Thanks BJ

Shoshi said...

Lol lol at your comment on my blog, Julia!!! Have I got the balls for this project?? I think so!! I've unravelled all the first dress now, and washed the wool, and am ready to start knitting. I've just uploaded another blog post with progress and pictures. I'm so thrilled with the colours...

Not feeling too bad at the moment, but have to be careful! There are so many things I WANT to do but pacing myself does mean it all takes time!

Hope you've had a great weekend.

Shoshi

Mary said...

Julia....love the desk...and your open book and scissors is a great photo....It's one of those a picture is worth a thousand words. Have a great week... See you next Wednesday!
