What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 158


EDIT: Sorry about the early lack of linky,,,it WAS there, and then it wasn't!


Finally by staying up late and being uncharacteristically cross with the state of 'being behind', I've managed to reclaim my desk and drop onto it a couple things that I want/need to do in terms of craft. You see a new punch and a small stamp in a packet - a prize what I won!  Colour me chuffed!  And bunting and harlequin stamps (from The Artistic Stamper). I have a couple birthday cards to make and bunting is just not going to go out of style for me! Still got Tracey's oval dies, see? And the plastic bag has some bits and pieces in that Miss Dunnit bought for me..you know, emery board, lip balm, blah blah.  So how did I achieve this state of readiness?
Yep, swing left and push back basically!  The office work has gone to the dining table because I need my craft space back, whine whine, and the craft papers that need sorting and organising have been ignored into a great big pile.  I'll tackle it, soon.  Let's not talk about tackling the jar of ribbons. Ever again. Argh.
So what are you tackling this week? Got time to show us?  Upload a pic to your blog..please.  Put WOYWW in the title and link to that post here.  Visit a few of the links...you'll be amazed, inspired, delighted, relieved.  Yep, we're ALL human!  See ya.

Hi Julia, Thats my job too, just about everything needs sorting out. We'll get there in the end though. TFS. Happy WOYWW 158. Hugs Rita xxx

Bridget Larsen said...

You certainly are up late Julia. hahaha I love that your craft desk is versatile between the craft room and the dining table.
Bridget # ??? when the linky goes up

BJ said...

Couldn't believe you had posted but sadly no Mr Linky. Best go read your mail now - LOL BJ

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

...don't think I've seen your desk from this angle before, loVe the set of boarder stamps that look like their awaiting your attention...Mel :)

RosC said...

It's about 9 o'clock on Wednesday morning here and you guys should be tucked up in bed pushing out zzzz's. Mr Linky's got it right - he's snoring away.
That jar of ribbons is spectacular and at least you know where it is which is more than I can say about mine. The desk looks workable now and that's great. Hope you Father is okay.
Cheers,
Ros. (number to come)

voodoo vixen said...

OK.... so its the first time I do woyww for ages and there is no Mr Linky!!

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

I'm with Annette. I thought I was dreaming when no one else mentioned it! No linky for me, either.

Leslie Hanna said...

Ditto. I haz a sad. I was hoping to not be number 4353456 this time. :(

Sarah said...

Shove it all around and aside as much you want to and enjoy creating... your table awaits! Bunting can't EVER go out of fashion if your British either and the ribbons are at least staying put with that pile on top so no worries. Sorted!

Laura said...

I thought -- oh, boy, the post is up! I'll be in the front row! But no. ha, ha Mr. Linky will wake up from his nap while I'm sleeping and I'll be around 100 as usual. *grin*

Love, love, love the look of those banner stamps -- can't wait to see how you use them. Happy WOYWW!

May said...

Love the angle of your desk this week.... no mr linky as yet... love the ribbon jar.... Hugs May x x x

Spyder said...

It's 2 in the morning...have a happy WOYWW< you desk is looking very inviting, mine's messy again, even though I tidy=ied it up..zzzz Bunting stamps, that's a good idea, it does take ages cutting them all out...(oohoo pins and needles in leg!) Been to Geurnsey today...nice bracelett shop..but didn't find anything crafty...happy days
(Lyn) Ummm? I'll come back later and ZzzZZZ get my number....

Charlene said...

I will miss you this week as we are visiting our grands but have to say how much I love those beautiful dies on your nice neat desk!

Joynana said...

Hi Julia, I got in early, but no mr. linky. I love your desk from that angle. I will be back later.

butlersabroad said...

Nice to see a different angle and always nice to see new goodies, those are brilliant stamps too. At least you're brave and showing us what's on the left... I'm not! I was so happy to see you posting early again, but it's not to be by the time I link up tomorrow, lol! Never mind, it's the thought that matters, right!!

Hugs
Brenda

Neesie said...

Well you caught me out this morning...just back from my walk that there you are but Mr Linky appears to be snoozing ;D
I always wish I could rummage through your desk...it always looks so crammed jam full of interesting things.
Happy WOYWW ~ enjoy! x

Shoshi said...

Love the new angle on the desk, Julia, and I love those new border stamps! Really cool.

Lovely to see you posting in the small hours again - suits me much better - but disappointing that there's no Mr. Linky, which means I shall be way down the list again by the time I get to it to check whether Mr. L. is there in the morning! My WOYWW blog post is uploaded, though, if anyone wants to visit.

Also, I am up for swapping ATCs with anyone who wants to - I'm really sorry to have missed the official swap, especially when I see the quality of the ATCs which have been flying back and forth!

Shoshi

Create With Joy said...

Awesome desk Julia - lots of crafty deliciousness - of course, with no linky in sight, you'll have everyone circling your site all night!

Today's post is a Mister Naughty Pants adventure. See what mischief he gets into when he ventures into Mom's latest workspace...

Have a great day and as to my nunber - it's a MYSTERY! tee hee

This week I am tackling sewing and sorrow.

Shaz in Oz.CalligraphyCards said...

MM Julia so know what you mean about reclaiming your desk! go away office work! not that i have that but do have other things taking my crafting time much to my reluctance.. nad yes the crafting looks like it will be fun too
I am smiling too cos WOYWW goes on whether Mr. Linky goes to the part y or no.. lets have fun without him!! Happy WOYWW everyone!! Shaz in oz.x
#about number 20 in comments :D

peggy aplSEEDS said...

Mr. Linky must be lost in the jar of ribbons!

RosA said...

Your desk is looking very organised today! But I'm worried about all that stuff on top of the ribbon jar. (And do you have a matching button jar?)
RosA

505whimsygirl said...

I just finished writing my post and thought I'd check to see if your WOYWW post was up yet! YES..... it's here - maybe I'll be in the double digits -- oh, but where's Mr. Linky.... drats, I'll probably be in the triple digits again!

Hugs,
Kay

Modern Day Disciple said...

I found you via Peggy- looks like fun and I love peeking at everyone else's desks!

Neil said...

Organised and ready to play I see. The ribbon jar looks like it's ready to go to the fete..... guess how many ribbons in the jar and win a prize! Well; the cat wakes me up nice and early so I come downstairs to post and no Mr Linky!

I don't see the link..

Monica said...

Where is Mr Linky. Better go to bed. See you in the morning

sandee said...

ah heck, cleaning up is highly over rated anyway!! lol waving hi from the hills of North Carolina :)

Lisa Richards said...

Lovin' your desk! Maybe if I check back at 11 p.m. my time Mr. Linky will be up?
Happy WOYWW!
Lisa

Neet said...

Oh heck - no Mr Linky - and already 29 comments. Guess I could be anywhere when he gets up.
Ah well, nice desk - glad you reclaimed it.
Hugs, Neet (http://hickydorums.blogspot.co.uk/2012/06/woyww-158-some-atcs.html)

sandee said...

uhm....now I see what Elizabeth meant by your ATG gun.....interesting.....lmao! waving again from the hills of North Carolina :)

Sylvia/LittleTreasures said...

If I meet Mr. Linky in my dreams I'll send him your way. Much needed sleep at this end and a list a mile long of "MUST DO" jobs by Thursday PM. I would love to have your clean work space right now..great colors there and some unique dies. Happy WOYWW and enjoy the week.

Helen said...

Something woke me at 5am and here I am - ready to link but no link! I'll come back later...

Robin Panzer Art said...

Happy WOYWW Julia, lots of delightful loot! I'll be back for Mr. Linky. http://artstudio33.blogspot.com/2012/06/whats-on-your-workdesk-wednesday-woyww.html Robin

Jennie -The Artistic Stamper said...

ooh your desk is almost as tidy as mine, and I spy with my little eye....LOL So glad you like them enough to use :)) makes me smile lots
Have a great day and will be back when Mr Linky has woken up!
xx

Redanne said...

Bunting go out of fashion? Never, I still have mine up at home and it is staying there until after the Olympics. Love your desk this week, tee hee. Still no Mr. Linky.... A x

scrappystickyinkymess said...

Really, you need to explore the satellite table. So useful. I could use a whole galaxy of them most days.

And I am with you on the bunting ...

Mary Anne

EELS said...

Seems a few of us are having trouble locating Mr Linky, he's absent for me too.
Will leave it awhile then have another look for him!
Cheers,
Elaine

inkypinkycraft said...

love the look of the stamps on you desk, some great bunting! fun to be had there!happy woyww , back later to see if mr linky is around.hugs trace x

Sue from Oregon said...

Ha! Swing to the Left...sounds like a crafters dance to me Mrs Dunnit! LOL! Not much craftiness for me this week but there is some yumminess over at my blog! You can see it Here.

Morti said...

I'm here, but sadly Mr Linky is not.....

Joanne said...

I did a late one too and now an early one but no linky boo!!!
Hugs Joanne xx

Tertia said...

Your desk reminds me of mine, just a lot neater! LOL
Happy WOYWW Where has mr. Linky gone??

craftymonki said...

I love a crammed desk. It just begs to be rooted through!

Happy woyww

kay said...

and theres me thinking i was late but looks like my linky is even later lol
please,please,can i sort your ribbons :)
have a fabby week,x

VonnyK said...

Hi Julia, As well as no Mr Linky for you, I keep getting an error message when I try to log on. Don't know if I will be able to do much visiting until the error goes away. Managed to get on now but don't know for how long.
Sorry all if I don't get to you.
Von

Franka Benjaminsen said...

well, your desk looks busy this week, just like mine(and that's not so often). Have a happy WOYWW and hope you visit my desk :-)
Bye, Franka-SeasideArt

Helen said...

Morning Julia Great balancing act of papers on ribbons! Is it like reverse Jenga. How many papers can you add until they slide to the right! Happy WOYWW to you.

Li'l Pidge said...

Love it, that's my ideal of tidying! Too early for Mr Linky then!
Kyla

Deb said...

your desk looks so organised and tidy this week! love those bunting stamps! I am also up late but no managing any creating, have just finished cleaning up for visitors coming tomorrow! debxx

Ann B said...

Stamps look good Julia and it is always a good feeling to get a little win. If work and play are competing for space then get Mr D to build you an outside office (otherwise known as a shed).
Ann B

nerllybird said...

Sorry to see Mr Linky is poorly, lol, hope he gets better soon! Lovely to see all your ATCs the other day by the way, looking forward to mine rolling in as well :)

scrappystickyinkymess said...

Just wondering - many of the hotlinked names here go to a Gravatar page rather than the blog address. Is that an automatic thing with the new "improved" blogger? When Mr Linky goes on holiday it's really hard to use the list to visit if the link doesn't go to the blog. I get this too with comments sometimes, the linked Site info isn't the blog, just the profile page :( Or is it a conscious choice by people to link to something other than the actual blog address? and if so WHY?

:)

Just askin'....

Mary Anne

Bella said...

Hello there...did you clean Mr linky off your desk while you swept everything to one side or hide him under the jar of ribbons? No matter, cos us WOYWWers carry on regardless. Love that about this community! Here is my blog link: http://bellasscrappinspace.blogspot.com/

Darnell J Knauss said...

Well, that's irony for you. I thought I was pulling a fast one by linking up on Tuesday night here in California, but it didn't work out! It's 11 p.m. and I'm off to bed. I'll be back tomorrow!

Twiglet said...

Ha - just when I am up early too - WOT NO LINKY? (See my post) x Jo

RebeccaJaneHoy said...

Glad I'm not the only one with a "productive" looking desk(sounds better than messy). As there is no linky ill pop back later,

Rebecca x

Sandra (Stamping For Pleasure) said...

Morning Julia . . . . Happy WOYWW. Will link up my desk when Mr Linky wakes up! LOL! x

Lunch Lady Jan said...

Good grief, I'm No 1!!! Yay *happy dance* Love the pushed back stuff - does it go all the way under your desk and come back up the other side...?
Hugs, LLJ N0 1!! woohoo xx

BJ said...

I've been up loads of times in the night for "female" requirements and checked for Mr Linky to no avail but just refreshed the page and Woh Ho he's there. YIPPEE
Loving the ribbon jar - BJ#8

Claire said...

this is a busy, creative desk, i reckon! and i'm glad to see i'm not the only one with precarious-looking piles teetering on the edge :) i guess mr linky is on holiday.... maybe in poland enjoying the footie :) xx

http://decide-what-you-want.blogspot.co.uk/

Spyder said...

I was looking at your piles teetering too, I think mine are worse.... but maybe I'm just dreaming
I was #30....bet I'm not now!

mamapez5 said...

It never ceases to amaze me that you have already got 62 comments this morning and it's only 8.30 (that's 7.30 in your money!).
I just love the stack of unsorted papers. I guess we've nearly all got one of those.
I will make a huge effort to post my desk this week. Where do the days go?
Enjoy your day.
Kate x

Pam said...

The push back method seems to be a universal action and is featured on so many desks each week that I now think its quite norm :-) have a good day xx

My name is Cindy said...

Aah, Mr Linky was missing!! That explains why I am nearer the beginning than usual!! Blogger is playing me up today as well - for some reason my page displays a strange band across the top effectively covering all my navigation buttons. Had to think real hard (it's early for me) to discover how to log in another way. Love bunting, in fact going to put up even more at work today, and although I lpve ribbon too, ribbon storage is the bane of my life. Blooming stuff gets everywhere.

Happy WOYWW!!

Cindy x

Annie said...

As you will see on Jo's blog today....I've been trying to find my mojo this week :-)

Erika said...

Mmm my ribbons do that too Julia. Glad to see I'm not the only one fighting the growing stash! Nice tidy desk today and it's always nice to win something crafty.
Hugs Erika.

okienurse said...

I am slowly sorting through my messy desk but about the time I think I have it whipped in shape some gremlin comes along and reclaims it...I persevere! Have a great week. Vickie #42

LuLu said...

Howdy,

Your desk is so neat today!!!

Since I last visited I've been working on a scrapbook/smash book/art journal for Father's Day and tutorial.

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

Peace,

CraftygasheadZo said...

Morning Julia - wow you do look ready for action, loving the sweep to the left pile, I haven't got that luxury, it would end up on the floor, hmmm do I need a bigger desk then do you think?! Feel like I'm missing out there. My idea of being organised and laying out the toppers I need is backfiring on me this morning the sun is now streaming in a reflecting of the foiling on the toppers, almost blinding me as I type! Right coffee time, take care my lovely. Zo xx 55

Queenie Jeannie said...

Thanks to Blogger (UGH!!!) I'm rather late again today! I WAS ready to go earlier though, lol!

Happy Wednesday everyone!!!

toni said...

Hi Julia love the look of those stamps I might have to invest in those. That is a massive vase of ribbons at least you can see wht you've got! have a good day, Toni x61

Mrs F said...

Well I was impressed with the tidyness of your desk until I saw that vase of ribbon ;)!

Happy WOYWW xx

Bea said...

My first visit to WOYWW. Came here from Marie Rayner's blog, Designs from the Heart, where she had posted a link. When I saw the photo of your desk, I chuckled. I got up at 2:00 a.m. this morning thinking i needed to go down to my drawing room and purge it completely because it has become a sort of storage room instead of a workroom. And I want my workroom back! All that clutter has stopped me and blocked me! I can't think of what I want to do because of the disorder. So your posting has given me an idea. I'll post what I'm doing and link to your page. Maybe it will help me find my muse once more. Thanks!

SophieNewton said...

Hi Julia, I have been lusting after those bunting stamps for quite some time now...think I will have to give in to my desires...and blame you!!
Happy WOYWW

Queen Of Toys said...

Looks like you are on a roll I hope you get everything done that you want too.

Nice of Mr D to purchase you some emery boards and lip balm, gosh mine wouldn't do that, he wouldn't know where or what I liked. LOL

Have a great crafting week

I'm certainly relieved to see your ribbons. I opened my box of ribbons today to pull out one piece for a present, the whole lot come out in one clumpy tangle! Aaargh!

Have a lovely day Julia :)

I’m glad to hear that you’re getting back to some state of normality Julia, I wish I was.

happy Crafting!

Bea said...

It's me again... I posted a link to this blogpost with a photo on my Pinterest Board, in the category, Artists Studios... do you mind? If so, let me know and I"ll delete it, but it's given me an idea of what to do in my own workroom today! Love the post today, Julia!

BTW, here are the links to my pinterest board where I posted the photo link to your blog, if you would like to check it out:

Ooops - sorry Julia, just got up and entered myself on Mr. Linky at No.73, and then found I'd already been entered, at No. 15!! Is there any way you can remove me from No. 73? Thanks!!

Shoshi

lisa said...

It's so lovely to be back amongst you all. I've missed my weekly dose of WOYWW.
You are looking in a wonderful state of readiness there, Julia.
I love the jar of ribbons, they look much better like than that.

you do need your space, it keeps one sane ( ish)

glad you are back and restoring yourself to usual default position in the human scale of things...

Hazel said...

Your space looks well organised today, Julia (never mind what lurks to the side etc) - as for the ribbons, you might well notice a couple of my boxes that need sorting ... there's always something. x

April said...

ooooh I love those bunting stamps!!! I'm part way through sorting my ribbons! pain in the ass!! your desk is lovely and tidy ;o) x April #80

KatzElbows said...

Oh, I know how you feel. I've just posted the grumpiest post ever! I hate myself for being so ridiculously messy! However, instead of staying grumpy and annoyed I'm going to be inspired by you and tidy. Maybe!

cheers,

sandra de said...

Your desk is always so full of inspiration and obviously your winnings confirms the greatness. Enjoy

Lol, swing and push back! Could be good for the wasteline if nothing else!!

Jacqueline said...

You will notice that I very cleverly NEVER show the left hand side of my desk!!! lol...yup! That the 'pile it high' place lol...

Thanks for the gorgeous ATC with the badge!! Love it!! :D

Take care

Lynn Holland said...

Hello from the lovely Cumbrian lake district. I didn't think I woul be able to get a signal to link up but hey here I am.
Hope you are back to normal soon Julia. I will have to do my desk zooming when we get home from holiday as I keep losing connection. Have a good week. Off to Kendal today.
Lynn xx

Diana Taylor said...

I just LOVE the bunting stamps - what a great idea - and I agree with you, bunting will never go out of style with me either. I love it!
Hope you have a great week.

AnnieC said...

hehehe - if I pointed the camera behind me in my workroom, you would see pretty much the same scenario, in fact you'd have a job turning around at all! Mind you, funnily enough I DID finally sort out my ribbons drawer this week - I don't know what came over me! Have a FABulous WOYWW :)

Glenda said...

At the end of the day, we are all human. My space dictates that I be pretty tidy. But I have to tell you every flat surface in my room has something on it. That is what we do. Crafters are all alike at heart.

TeddyBobCrafts said...

Happy WOYWW. So many comments that I haven't got time to read them all now - don't know how you cope! I am dreaming of having my craft room sorted out properly and being free to just craft! Watching Ideal World and C&C, and keeping my credit card safely hidden, as I don't need any more stash (although the Graphics 45 show is tempting me a lot). Ali x #84

Sheilagh said...

I would love to tip out that jar of ribbons, no, not to sort them, just to play with them.. I don't see the point of sorting them, if they were all neat and tidy I wouldn't want to use them;o)

Sheilagh 99...and feeling it!!

Judy said...

Hi Julia, I do singe some edges, but then I just cut them off and keep on going.Sometimes I am left with very small circles!!No matter, they then become the centres.
Judy#22

Becky said...

We all do what we have to do to get to that work space, right? :) I wondered what was in that jar, looks sort of like a prize you might win at a carnival! Ha!! #101 this week, missed it by that much!

Barb King said...

Love that bunting stamp- I'm into buntings now that I've seen all the beautiful decorations everywhere in the UK for the Jubilee celebrations.
Had so much fun receiving the ATC from fellow WOYWW ers, so glad you organized that. Barb

Hi Julia - snigger, loads of comments generated by Mr Linky going AWOL. That shook 'em up a bit! Di xx

Angie said...

Paper scraps breed! I mean it I spend more time sorting bits of paper that I don't even recognize, those solids get in there with those prints and the next thing you know there are dots and strips that you don't know! I bet ribbon does the same thing and that's why we can't ever get it under control!!!

Jingle said...

Well, when you see my desk you will know EXACTLY what I will be tackling later this week! LOL! Yours looks great! Loving those stamps!

Daniella said...

Hi Julia!
Your space looks positively clean!! Sometimes we all have to make that pile that we will get to later, to make space to craft again!! And if you are anything like me, you won't ever get to that pile until you need something from it!! LOL
xxDaniella

StampinCarol said...

Your desk seems pretty organized and neat at the moment! Those dies look fascinating! And as to paper, I got a large order in for a group of gals and my freezer was totally covered. What a hoot getting that sorted!

Mary said...

Oh that Mr. Linky....he's being quite a little stinky! Ok that's it, and now you know, I'm not a poet and now you all know it! Very busy desk Missy....it's so hot here right now, I'm hoping to stay inside and get some organizing done....Note...I said hoping to. I am easily distracted!

Monica said...

Really was early this time and Linky was at the pub!

mommyle said...

That's whah happened to me. My craft space filled up one too many rooms, and that's when i got rid of my entire dining room!!!!

have a wonderful week!

Valerie said...

I like your crafty little space. So many goodies all around! Thank you for having such a fun blog!

Fiona@staring at the sea said...

I like your system! Sadly it wouldn't work on my kitchen table, we'd never eat again!

Whimcees said...

Hello!

Love your photos! Your system is uniquely Julia! You do what you have to do, right! Thank you again for starting this lovely Wednesday share - so much fun! Wishing you a happy day and some time at your orderly workdesk to create!

Hugs,

Barbara Diane

Mary Jo Rhoda said...

Congrats on your prize!
I know I am always completely shocked when I win something :)

Love those stamps I see.
And I have to say, I tend to do that as well. Move piles around. In fact I have a closet full of those piles that really needs cleaning out :)

Valerie said...

Thank you so much for visiting my blog and leaving such a wonderful comment! I am honored! I'm thinking I'm comfortable enough to post a more "realistic" photo of my craft room! I'm not as neat as it appears!

Keren said...

Lucky you, winning a prize ( I never win anything so I am deeply jealous)!

Glad you reclaimed your craft space - some things just have to be done.

Lisa said...

I'm notorious for piling things in another area (to be gotten to later) so I'll have room on my desk to work. Yours looks very tidy. And I love the bunting stamps!

Helen said...

Just wanted to say 'Hi'. I'm joining you for the first time this week. Looking forward to having a look around very soon :)

Sheri said...

Push and shove cleaning ... my favorite kind! ;)

Michelle Webb said...

I'm late this week Julia, I hope I don't get forgotten right at the end! There is just never enough hours in the day is there?! That's not just ribbon in that there jar is there? I have a box which ends up with a name on it i.e. "ribbon box", but if I'm having a whirlwind of inspiration everything on my work desk just gets side swiped into the "ribbon box" and I deal with it later! I have many "ribbon boxes"! Michelle xx

trisha too said...

Of course you need your craft space, who doesn't????!!??

Well what do you know, I made it on time this week--at least here in the States!

Tackling another hand bound book, this one with monoprint pages!

:)

Kathryn said...

I learned the "push back method" from you! HA! Works quite efficiently!
Good to see you back!
hugs!
kat

Carol Hornby-Clements said...

A different view and very neat too.I have nowhere to push back to.LOL
Happy Wednesday

carol

Princess Judy Palmer said...

The pile up and push to the side method--always a fan favorite! I personally like the pile on the floor method too. Using the floor does also encourage me to pick it up again because one cannot trust those evil cats (is that redundant? does not everyone know that all cats are evil?) Fun bunting stamps and a new punch to play with.

Samantha Elliott said...

Save sorting out until the housework is done, ironing all done and put away, house cleaned top to bottom, wallpapering done, dog washed and the pigs are a-flying!!!
I hope Tracey gets her dies back!! LOL! Thank you once again for sponsoring me Honey. It was a lovely surprise and worthwhile cause! xxx

Nora CG said...

I was almost ready to push everything in my desk, but believe it or not, I manage to clean up... a little. ;)

Thank you for another WOYWW!
have a great day!

Kim said...

Very tidy....real work does not belong in crafty spaces; it does nasty things to the mojo fairy, bullies the Muse, an is generally a bad seed. So good for you for reclaiming your space!

By coincidence I sorted out a stack of craft papers and scraps last night, now have them cut into sizes suitable for mounting photos on, covering the front of cards, 12" strips for scrapbooking and then smaller bits for punches and tags etc. However, the ongoing saga of the ribbon storage, well I'm with you on that one, they are all still in a tin which I sorted out a while ago, but all those odd bits (you know, the ones cut from clothes and labels etc, well how do you organise them?!) Thanks for sharing, glad you got your craft space back. Marie

Oh yeah Julia love the filing system you have. It works well I see. *smiles* Norma

karen said...

Hee hee, I thought to myself "WOW Julia's desk looks very organized today!!" And then I saw the picture of the teetering pile of papers atop the ribbon jar and realized there was a price to pay for that organized look. Always interesting anyways!

Well, you know when the overflow goes to the dining table, it's definitely time to sort something. I feel your pain--my "studio" is a corner of the master bedroom, and I keep things in pretty boxes and those plastic scrapbook containers--but heaven forbid I have multiple projects going and things get out of place...then it's hello dining table! Happy WOYWW! Sandy #170 (I think--I'm way down this time! But happy to be here!)

Emma Lee said...

This is my first time linking. Hopefully now I've started you will see more of me!!

Queen Lightwell said...

Haha! I had to have a "real" clean-up earlier this week myself, the push and sweep method would have left everything in the floor and no room for me to walk! lol
Maybe I'll get up to some more fun before the day is over and update my blog with some new *creative* pictures! :) I love your stamp set from artistic stamper...I'm going to try to see if I can make my own pennant stamp set this evening...its getting too expensive to keep buying these things! :)

Shoshi said...

Oooh Julia I'm thrilled you want to swap ATCs with me! An ATC from our own lovely Julia, Queen of the WOYWW realm!! I'll email you my address. Thanks for adding me to Mr. Linky. I am at No. 15, but I see I am still at No. 73 as well, from when I joined without realising you'd already linked me. If you could remove the No. 73 link it might save people getting confused!

Yes, Cindy's card is amazing, isn't it. I am so thrilled with it, and the little bag of goodies she sent me!! Glad you like my coloured zentangles, too. I'm having a lot of fun with them.

Happy belated WOYWW,
Shoshi #15

Ohhh Snap said...

Congratulations on winning some crafty stuff! Love those banner stamps. As something on an expert on stacking, I must complement you on putting the pile on the ribbon jar, high enough so it shouldn't be casually brushed off, solid foundation, etc. :D. Happy WOYWW! #111

BumbleVee said...

I'm late...but here ....and just to show you my ATC really..... because there is not much 'cept boxes on and around my desk....

Amy E said...

I think your should totally time yourself when you start to tackle your jar of ribbons to see how long it takes you to get them sorted...hours...days...weeks?!?! Hahaha!!

Thanks for taking a peek at my spot! Happy WOYWW! (on Thursday! Or is it even Friday for you by now??)

I just received my WOYWW button and anniversary ATC and they are both brilliant! To put it British-ly. ;)
This is my first ever received ATC and now I understand why they sell ATC display thingies...its absolutely display-worthy! :) Thank you dear Julia for being such a gracious and generous hostess week after week...
cheers,
Deeyll

Sorry to be sooo late posting this. I was working on it on Wednesday, though! I forgot all about WOYWW until I went to Jennibellie's site today.

Dragon said...

WOO, Julia... I am SOOOO honoured that you came back!!! Is it unheard of that you post a reply TWICE on one WOYWW??? Anyway, thanks for your 1) encouraging and very supportive comments each time and 2) your specific comment about my hanging and my work in general... I am thrilled because I value your opinion. I just wonder why I don't make places on DTs when I can such good stuff (big headed too!!!) Anyway. Thanks a bunch again
