What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 171

Ouf.  My desk is a dumping ground this week; haven't been working at it since Thursday and you can tell.  Good news though..mostly the things you can see are new purchases - some stock for the card marathon at the end of the month and possibly an ink pad or two and a small stamp or two from my unexpected and not planned trip to Jennie's  new shop.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      So you can see the darkness means that I'm showing you Tuesday night's photo, I plan to change the look of the desk today. I really do.
Inspire me then - show what you're doing at your desk today..place of work, rest or play..we like to see what you've got, where it is and most frequently commented on - how tidy it all is!  Put WOYWW in your blog title so we can find you easily and add your link here.  
Oh and by the way - if you're coming to the WOYWW Crop on October 13th, please scroll down and read the previous post.  Thank you!

I have seen those embossing holders before. Not sure what they are called, but they put yourEP back in the jar. Other than that, I didn't see much else I recognized. Have a super week and thanks for your comment on my 9/11 post. It meant a lot.

scrappystickyinkymess said...

I am so tidy today, after the horror of last week. Feeling very virtuous, and looking forward to finally making a crop! I might even be able to find stuff :)

No nodding off this week. Lol!

Happy WOYWW

(omg! Auto correct recognized WOYWW! You have arrived!)

Dragon said...

Well, it's a triumph my dear!!! I am lovin all the fullness of it and recognise a kindred spirit again cos mine is JUST the same!!!! Tee hee... wish I were coming to the crop!!! Have to meet at the NEC instead then... badges ago-go!!!
Love and light

Helen said...

Hi Julia I also took my photo in the dark. It is technically Wednesday though and I am about to go to bed! I really wish I could make the October gathering but it is the week of my card class and also our crop has arranged a weekend of workshops by Mel from Create and Craft. I am hoping I am inspired to use my Cricut more. But I am definitely torn. I hope everything is such a huge success for you that you want to arrange another one soon!! Not being completely selfish or anything like that! Hope the tidying is swift so you can get down to the fun part of playing with your new goodies! WOYWW Hugs from Helen 5

Bernice said...

Oh - I'm glad to see another desk like mine!! Yes, I intend to tidy up soon as well,
Bernice

Daniella said...

Hi Julia!! I saw your last post and I know you are having an awesome crop for the WOYWWers, so you must be crazy busy! Your desk looks fine to me, and it will be ready for your return. Have a great Wednesday!!
xxDaniella

famfa said...

Wow what a busy desk. Bet it's not as messy as mine though. X

Elizabeth said...

You won't get much inspiration from my desk today ... it's a mess of piles :) Have a happy WOYWW. Elizabeth xx #6

peggy aplSEEDS said...

a dumping ground, that's exactly what my desk is this week too! love that orange plaid paper!

Di said...

OK, what's the white powder in the box lady? Happy WOYWW Julia - your badges/buttons are on display on my posting right now :) Hugs, Di xx

scrappymo! said...

Looks like you have been busy...busy shopping! What fun.
Sure wish I lived across the pond...then maybe i would have a better chance of attending the crop!!!
Good on you for arranging it all!

butlersabroad said...

Hard to tell what time it is on your desk these days as the sun sets so early now. Seems hard to believe summer is almost over when it was still 79F today. Lovely busy desk and great that you got to go shopping for new goodies, always a plus. Looks like you have fall coloured paper or is that just the way the light is catching it?

Hugs

sandra de said...

I love it when you post really early and I am 23 rather than 123. Dumping ground of new stuff ... that is what dreams are made of!
Sandra @23

Lindsay Weirich said...

Don't worry, I'm sure you'll tidy that right up:) I clearned my room, even vaccuummed the rug after I was done creating today, I hope it looks that good next wednesday, I'm not holding my breath tho!
Lindsay #23

Sandy Leigh said...

As usual, Ms. Dunnit, one of the most inspiring things about your desk is your complete honesty! And this is what we like to see...it's impossible to keep producing and creating 24/7 although I wish I could...but it is so true that we get busy, overwhelmed, tired to the bone, weak, hungry, and then we can pick ourselves up, clean it all off, and begin again! And then go to bed early! I can't wait to see how clean your desk is next week!

Shaz in Oz.CalligraphyCards said...

Hi There Julia - ah bearing all again, at least as far as your desk is concerned! and having new stash is so much fun - but then where to put it so your dont forget to use it up - that is my problem with short term memory.. not doubt you are too busy with so many fingers in various pies getting ready for the WOYWW clan gathering on Oct 12th even though not coming read the post and thought the no present injunction a great idea!! happy WOYWW! Shaz in oz.x #25

Peggy said...

posting a little early this time have a busy day tomorrow you desk looks like mine did last week. Have a great day!

Belinda said...

Julia, letting your hair down girl huh? I know under that rubble is some creative beauties!! I have a corner in my craft room that is pretty pathetic so no worries, you are in good company.

On the bright side, once you sort it out you will get to play with your new goodies!!

Belinda (#26)

Deb said...

YoriとYayie said...

Diana Evans said...

oh wow!! Julia!!! you look super busy with your workspace!!!!love it!

Barb King said...

I'm glad to be back WOYWWing again, I've misssd it. I've got several piles just like yours in several different places. Someday I'll get them all straightened out!

marcia said...

I love looking at others desks! I see the beautiful items others create from a desk that looks exactly like mine, I realize there is hope for me yet!

Whimcees said...

RosA said...

Hi Julia, Your desk looks perfectly normal to me. Neat or tidy, I don't mind, but I am hoping you don't scrunch up that nice orangey paper. Happy WOYWW, RosA # 35

Mary Jo Rhoda said...

My dumping ground is usually the area on top of my trimmer. But then I have to clean it up or I can't get to my trimmer :)
Mary Jo #40

Katie said...

I'm sure you'll get it cleaned up again! Thanks for hosting this fun snoop at crafty desks!

Katie #40

Mari K. said...

Is that mustache tape I see? :)

Neesie said...

It looks like the night shift desk Julia...you're so committed to your craft you work around the clock!
Impressive ;D
I'm in transit this week...travelling from the dining room back to the studio so there's not much inspiration in my space at the moment.
I used my WOYWW badge for the first time this week...I met up with RosC here in Melbourne. See the power of you posts!!!
Thanks for inspiring us all :D
Neesie #42

TheFairyyellowbugQueen said...

Julia, I like the look of that pink tray thing. It looks like it has a spout at one end. Do you put liquid stuff in the tray and then control the amount that comes out? Or, is my imagination running away with me. *smiles* Norma

Sue from Oregon said...

Seems we are two peas in a pod this week...running faster than we can keep up with ourselves! LOL

May said...

Well Julia, with the prep of the pending WOYWW crop, I think your desk is rather tidy Love that orange & red paper.. good luck with your tidy up!! Have a happy week, Hugs May x x x#58

Lunch Lady Jan said...

Magnificently, majestically messy! There may be alternative life forms evolving under that lot.. :D

Buttons said...

Hmmm, being tidy isn't necessarily a good sign! You are constructively employed so that is positive :) Hugs from a messy headed crafter, Buttons x

fairy thoughts said...

up to standard this week again, but hey life gets in the way doesn't it and if you will go shopping...
the stripey paper looks interesting something for halloween?
have a good week
janet

KatzElbows said...

Your desk is exactly why I love WOYWW. It lets me see that other people don't create things for a whole week and that their desks end up a dumping ground. It really stops me from feeling guilty. So thank you, thank you a lot.

cheers, rachel #71

Mrs F said...

Good new stash Julia. How long have you allocated for the 'clean up'? There are only 24 hours in a day you know lol?

Good luck and happy WOYWW

Helen said...

So many wonderful things to explore on your desk, so nice to see the dumping ground back. I'm doing three things at once so mess is all over the place.
Have a great week.

lisa said...

Must be a week for messy desks this time, Julia, although you have some intriguing things peeking out of your piles!!! Are those new DI's I spy????
Afraid mine is as bad as yours this week so not much to inspire you. My excuse is it shows we are all busy!!!!
Have a good one.
Hugs Lisax #88

BJ said...

Hi Julia, I'm a bit late today as the family have been struck down with a late Summer cold. Just wondering if you should change the name of your blog from stamping to dumping - LOL. I jest - BJ#105

Cathy said...

I wish my desk was a hive of activity like yours Julia - I am good at pushing things away and putting them away - just need to create LOL!!

melinda alpha said...

thanks, Julia, for this "window" to other creative individuals' space. i find encouragement and support...

Joanne said...

at last mine looks like yours today, but I had to stage mine. It's tidy again right now.
Hugs Joanne xx

donnalouiserodgers said...

i already changed the look of my desk this morning - hence my number being in the three digits bracket of the linky list, it would have turned a youngster grey and an oldster straight to the gin bottle, so I DID tidy it, honest.

Ah I am with Lizzie, Jo and Jennie at the shop this weekend up to our elbows altering books - Heaven eh???

CraftygasheadZo said...

Do you know I sometimes wish my desk could be like that. But it won't because I'm a right pickle and can't let my small space overload because then I wouldn't be able to just sit down and start! Saying that I do have all the things you have on your desk on my bookshelves and in boxes cos my desk is teeny tiny. Maybe if I get a bigger desk then I could you know spread out a bit! Lol Take care Zo xx

Glenda said...

It sounds like you are super busy with an upcoming crop. Wish I lived on the same continent with you; then I could come join in and meet some of the wonderful WOYWW ladies!

Jaki Morris said...

Hurray, back to messy!
Last week was quite funny as I took three shots. The table, full of non crafty rubbish, the artfully arranged shot of the intended crafting, and the reality of the crafting aftermath!

Will email about the crop.
Take care

April said...

Wow! lot's of stuff :o) glad some of it is new though, I'm sure that will lure you back to your desk :o) You asked if it was a little pot of green beads on my desk, I had to go and look what you meant :o) it's very boring really, just an eraser, it's made of a transparent green stuff with lots of mini erases molded into it, told you it wa boring :o) x April #111

okienurse said...

Your desk looks really neat and tidy compared to the dumping ground that my desk has become. Hoping to get it cleaned up tomorrow!! Have a great week! Vickie @114

Oh I am so glad it isn't only my desk gets like that sometimes.

Mine's like it all the time!! It will be tidy next week ... erm well maybe. :o)

New stuff is always good and you are talking about being inspired, so that shows promise, right? Haha! Happy Woyww! #125

Joynana said...

Hey Julia, your desk looks like I feel, all cluttered and loaded down. I have been doing some shopping too, looks like we may have gotten the same distress ink pads. Have a great day. I need to show my desk with all of the purchases from the last couple of weeks. #124

Sarah said...

Yay to new purchases!!! I haven't joined in for a while so good to be back!! x

Kate said...

An unexpected trip to Jennie's new shop sounds heavenly, but how did you manage to only come away with a couple of stamps???

** Kate **

Samantha Elliott said...

I am late...I am late....for a very important date...! At least I have made it now.
Are we going to have a confession box next month so we can get things off our chests? New purchases...messy desks....new stamps....neglected housework! I see you had better be first Miss!

Have fun with your tidying and playing today. I've tidied mine since I posted ready for my play date and it is barely recognisable! What's the card marathon BTW?

Laura (Bookworm) said...

Hope you have buckets of time to play/work today! I think I spy one of the season distress sets -- the winter one? -- over at the far left. Happy Wednesday!!

Cheers Elaine

Danielle said...

My desk becomes a dumping ground for the family usually after a weekend shopping trip. I hate that because on Monday mornings I am left to sort and pick up everyone's stuff in order to get to my desk. At least yours is filled with new goodies for you to play with. dani #18

SandyD said...

Look forward to Wednesdays as it is lovely to see what other crafters are up to. Thank you for the opportunity. Sandy

Argggh . . . I am running away . . . FAST . . . I am a neat-freak and your mess has freaked me out!

Gita said...

Hi Julia. How fun - new purchases. Now someone needs to get to the desk and get some work done, of course, you are going to that crop of yours tomorrow so it might be awhile yet. Have fun!! Brigita

SueH said...

Can’t say I’m surprised to see your desk looking like that Julia, but what does surprise me is that it’s not been touched since last Thursday. What on earth could you have been doing in all that time?

Drop by my blog and you may be lucky in my birthday blog candy draw…………whatever it turns out to be!

Happy Crafting!

Frances said...

I finally made it dear Julia. I love a messy desk, it is what I join the WOYWW for! You a a whirlwind creator and I so envy that. I do so wish I could join your crop party in October. Can't swim the ocean so I will just be there in spirit;). Have a great week.

sandysewin said...

I kinda like your messy desk. Does that mean something's wrong with me? lol

If I were closer, it would be awesome to join your crop party. I know it will be great fun!

Happy Woyww,

trisha too said...

Now THAT is a desk I can relate to!!!

:)

Tertia said...

Oh how I wish I could come to that crop.
Insert sad smile here.
The desk looks a bit like a disaster zone this week. Mine is pristine! Only because nothing is happening there (insert another sad face here)
Happy WOYWW!

toni said...

Hi Julia lots of nice new goodies to play with. I wish I lived closer to Jennies shop it looks fab in her photos.have fun Toni 146 x

Cynthia Eloise said...

but i'm sure it was fun collecting all that stuff. now to sort so you can use it.

Princess Judy Palmer said...

When I linked up there was a picture of said desk and its mess (notice I said its mess not YOUR mess), but now there is no picture. Never fear, I can envision a good crafty disaster area just fine! Enjoy the new purchases and have fun with the crafting marathon session at the end of the month. Would it be for World Stamping Day?

Cath Davidson said...

Oh dear! i seem to be getting later and later! hey ho!

Paula Gale said...

ouch. Messy...

Interesting messy. Honestly messy. No staging, no making up to the camera. Take it leave it. Love it.

Hope you are not catching yourself coming backwards...

I think the NEC is more likely that the end of Oct crop... too many miles away!!!

big hugs

Paula x x x

RosC said...

Glad to hear that Jennie's new shop is open for biz, and that you have some nice new stuff.
Very late this week so a bit out of breath of course. On my way to look around now,
Smiles,

Kim said...

You are going to love that new ink set I spy! New stash always needs to air out a bit I say...

Queen Lightwell said...

So have you opened/used your new TH ink pads yet? I'm just so curious to know if they are worth the extra over his regular colors...because I'm just now committing to buying the rest of his regular colors online at Joann's! They're running a decent sale and free shipping so...well, it's almost like you *have* to buy then, right? lol
Love the utter chaos that seems to be reigning on your workdesk these days! Makes me feel right at home...teeheeehee
