WOYWW 179

What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday. That's what the annoyingly difficult to pronounce acronym stands for.  And thanks for asking.
Rubbish lighting.  November's calendar is printed out ready for me to make a LO for the magnetic frame that hangs in the hall chez Dunnit.  It's too late for the first two appointments of the month. Under that, and the spare sandwich plate for my Big Shot (I don't know why) is 4 newly prepared die storage sheets.  That's sticky back magnetic sheets stuck on A4 sheets of chipboard to you.  They go into a magazine file for relatively easy flicking through.  Not that I'm expecting to buy so many new dies all at once you understand.  Under them are some Christmas stamps that Shopkeeper Gal thought I could use in a workshop.  That remains to be seen. At left is a new toy to try out - a label maker from Artemio...does upper and lower case and is better priced than the traditional Dymo machines, so I'll report back....at some stage.   There's still an unused reindeer stamp.  And because the instruction 'pull out and keep' is printed on it, there's a section from this month's craft stamper on the ipad's deckchair  - it contains ideas for using the free cover stamp.The deckchair, to answer a few enquiries, is called a 'Bookchair' and came from Waterstones or Borders a handful of years ago. It isn't a Mac product.   Strangely, the two pots of chewing gum have morphed into one, in a siamese style gesture...I suspect one of my lovelies has been rummaging.  And why wouldn't you - there's no actual work going on that's for sure.  
Incidentally, I've been flagging up that Jan and I were going to the Craft Hobby and Stitch show at the NEC this Friday with the hope of meeting anyone that may be doing the same, but we've had a change of plan.  Perhaps the March/April date will prove a better date.
Meanwhile, show us what you're up to on your craft surface of choice - upload a pic to your blog, put WOYWW in your post title and link up here. Reciprocal visits are polite.  Enjoyment guaranteed.  How could you resist?!

Interesting desk this week, your Craft Stamper pull out has reminded me that I asked Andrew to pick up some mags whilst in England, no doubt he's put them away for stocking stuffers!! I've only ever managed to use one of my Papermania stamps, they seem to be one of those things that look great but are hard to use!

Hugs

Minxy said...

Desk on form as per usual,I see your crimbo card making is in full swing {scrolled down your blog for a nosey} Am intrigued by the new label maker, I have a soft spot for them so would very much like to know what you think of it.
Have a great rest of week

Hi Julia,

Lots of fun things on your desk this week! As for mine, well, I showed my Craft Sale table instead. I've been stashing around my crafting supplies while tidying up my little place. Hoping to sell and get into something bigger -- with a designated craft room! Woo Hoo!!!

Hugs,
Kay

EELS said...

Hi Julia, I was going to say the same, interesting desk this week but Brenda beat me to it - so I won't say it now!
Will be interested to hear how the new label maker pans out, I have a trad Dymo and love it.
Cheers
Elaine #6 - woo hoo getting closer to #1

Laurie said...

oh my gosh, I wouldn't know what to do with half the things you described but I am in awe and intrigued by it all!!My work surface seems embarrassingly boring when I see all this!!You have so much going on, I love that.

sandra de said...

I do like how your desk is always full of layers and surprises. Would never have noticed the jumbo gum getting up to tricks. Enjoy your week.

Woo Hoo my 2nd time joining in! Happy to be here. Thanks for hosting this. I had a blast last week looking around.

scrappystickyinkymess said...

Watching the election coverage on AljAzeera so wide awake ... For now. Wanted to say I loved Miss Dunnit's costume. I can't recall if that labeller is the one I have but I am too lazy to go look. Does it have interchangeable wheels? Sorry, I keep getting distracted, I've been working on this comment for 15 minutes! Giving up, you'll get no sense out of me tonight.....

Election coverage in full swing in the UK.
I've got a similar book stand that came from Tesco a few years ago. It makes a great iPad stand
Have a good creative week everyone

Nan G said...

Lovely little wooden stand. Is that what ya'all are calling the ipad holder? Everything's there ready to go when are, same me lately.

Sandy Leigh said...

Fun bits and bobs going on! Wish I could find more fun shows like that around this part of the woods! Sounds fun! Happy WOYWW!

Spyder said...

I haven't got sandwich plate for my bigshot...(I want to say I use the toaster but I won't... I use cardboard instead, funnily I said that on my post... Your desk looks busy as ever...right... I'm now #22 on the list.... but by the time I finished typing I'll be at least 44...Happy Crafting!

Shoshi said...

As always, a busy desk full of activity, materials and equipment, Julia! Looks as if you've got your work cut out for a bit.

Thanks again for organising WOYWW for us all! It's very much appreciated.

BJ said...

Your desk is always amazingly FUN whether you are working on anything or not. Looking forward to the Artemio label maker report having recently bought a Dymo myself. Loving the coloured tapes are they the same width perchance 9mm??? BJ#30

Always so much to see, makes me feel a wee bit jealous. You live the glamorous life for sure :)

Great idea for iPad stand. I smashed ours last week - whoops. I was searching for a plate but I guess you mean something else! Still like the reindeer stamp

Diana Evans said...

hard to believe it is November already....interesting workspace today!!! wishing you a super inspiring week!!!

Unknown said...

Interesting desk this week...will be listening to hear how the label maker works out. Sounds intereting.

scrappymo! said...

Great desk this week.
The label maker sounds great...can't wait to hear how it plays out.
Took a second look and spied the reindeer...it is so nice! You can tell I'm in the Xmas card making spirit!
I have added my grandaughter #33again this week...if you find it annoying just drop me an email...I am never sure if it is OK...scrappymo1@gmail.com I/m #32 this week.

Mari Kocjancic said...

That label maker looks like fun. I've been wanting to get one myself, let us know how it works. :)

Daniella said...

Hi Julia!!
Lovely desk. I hope everything is ok, and you and yours are well (because you aren't going to the craft show)
xxDaniella-35

Deb said...

would love to see how you make your layout with the calendar print out, I am intrigued!
my label maker is my new best friend, I am busy labelling everything!
Debxx

Sandi McLean said...

I am impressed that you do up each months calendar as the month comes along! I fairly frequently am two months behind on turning the pages on mine! Only thing keeping me current lately is so many medical appts that i am actually using the calendar instead of memory! Which is going along with all else LOL Hope to get around a bit more this week.. Sandi # 40 something

Sandi McLean said...

Make that #37! I thought 40 something was pretty good being 30 something is just darned terrific! LOL Sandi

Barb King said...

Thanks for the reminder about the label maker, I think I have one in the closet that I have never even used. That label look is so cute on cards. Have a great week, and thanks for hosting, it's always so much fun!

VonnyK said...

Love to see that your desk is as "tidy" as mine. I bought my very first stamp and ink pad the other day. See what a bad influence you all are on me. Next thing you know I'll be sewing!!! (eek).
The stamp is one of those page of writing things. I hope to use it as a background. Here's hoping the ink gets on the page and not me.
Have a great week.

Darnell J Knauss said...

My favorite line in a long time, "And because the instruction 'pull out and keep' is printed on it, there's a section from this month's craft stamper ..." LOL!! Just when we think we are unique individuals, we simply do as we're told!

Thank you, as always! Also, I enjoyed the pic below of the finished extraordinary costumes!! Hearts, Darnell #42 (at the moment)

sandee said...

I hope you let me know how the label maker works out, I use the cheap-o Dymo Label maker, but would love to move up without paying a big price! waving hi from the hills of North Carolina :)

Hands to Work, Hearts to God said...

I've been wanting to buy a label maker not only for my crafting but also for the office. So I'd appreciate knowing if this brand a better buy. Did you say anything about the upside down bottle? I didn't catch it! Patsy

Krisha said...

Interesting deak this week Julia, lots on it BUT where is Mr Mojo??
Have a great week

Toodles and Binks (Galaxy Girl from UK STampers) said...

Have a great time at the show.

Looking forward to hearing how the label maker works out.

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

I'm glad I'm not playing in WOYWW because I can't see the Linky Links. That's nothing. I can't see the ones I created and put on MY blog!! I'm starting to HATE blogger.

I'll be interested to see how your label maker fares. I've had three Dymos and two of them have broken. None are the same size either. There's something to say for consistency and interchangeability.

Ann B said...

'How could you resist?' - well I couldn't, never can. Think I may have to look out for a book-stand, very cute and I can dream of summer in a deckchair in the midst of winter. Lots to see this week Julia, as usual, and a reminder that I have a label maker tucked away somewhere....if only I knew where.

Helen said...

Morning Julia - that tip about putting the magnetic stuff onto chipboard is very useful. I was wondering how to stop them being all floppy! I am relatively new to collecting these thin metal dies but You can never start early enough with a good storage system! You have also reminded me I haven't flicked through my Craft Stamper this month - no where did put it!!? Happy WOYWW to you from Helen 56

Sue from Oregon said...

of course I spotted the cherry cut out on your desk! Love cherries! I did a big clean on my desk this week-just to show you I am not always a piggy!

KatzElbows said...

I spotted a stand like yours at WHSmiths, in case anyone is looking for one.

I'm also interested in the label maker. I love the Dymo ones, but they don't have the right punctuation. Is a question mark really too much to ask for?

As to the die holders, well Christmas is coming up. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you!

cheers, rachel #53

Lunch Lady Jan said...

I used to love Dymo machines, everything got labelled!! And I mean everything...bags, books, tennis rackets, the goldfish etc etc. Please can I play with yours sometime?? :)
Hugs, LLJ xx

Helen said...

I am interested to see the label maker, what I hate about my Dymo is the only upper case letters... let us know! Off to start snooping now... Helen, 4 again!

scrappyjen said...

Happy WOYWW! I have had such a positive week this week, so I hope you have too. Things are def changing for the better. Your desk looks very busy as usual.I did a calendar layout a month thing a few years ago and have not done one in a while. Note to self for 2013! Have a super day everyone, jenxx

Annie said...

We have a lot going on here this week so couldn't come to NEC this Friday anyway so I really hope life here is a little calmer and maybe we will try to meet up at the March/April one :-)
Hugs,

TeddyBobCrafts said...

Happy WOYWW. A lovely busy desk as always. I have a label maker, but only used it a couple of times. My excuse is that I am waiting to move to my new craft room, when everything will be moved into new storage, so not worth labelling boxes etc now (that is my story and I am sticking to it). Shame you will not be at the NEC, but I am hoping to go on Thursday, so we would have missed each other anyway! Ali x #58 (I think)

TeddyBobCrafts said...

Make that #63. I jumped down the list whilst typing my comment, feeding the cat etc. Ali x

Annie said...

HI Julia

Lots of things going on on your workspace today. Happy crafting and thanks for WOYWW. Have met so many lovely people through this and seen so many inspiring projects. Great fun. THank You

Joanne said...

I was going to say that I like your cherries but that would be out of order (darn I did say it). I spy a couple of MS clear stamps from the top bit of a punch I think. Shame about the NEC, I'm going tomorrow.

Twiglet said...

My dear daughter bought tickets for Thursday as a surprise birthday gift so we will be there a day early - sorry! Will try to get something sorted for the Spring one. x Jo

lisa said...

You always have so many different things on your desk. There's nothing like being prepared with the magnetic storage ready for when those sneaky new dies suddenly appear on your desk all by them selves. You can never have enough!!
Happy WOYWW

JoZart said...

Could there possibly be more going on in that small square of desk, I ask? Don't think so. I must be the first member of the class to look forward to detention... can't wait... but hey, Miss, I'm snitchin"...Helen hasn't done her homework and I thought I was last!
I'll make sure I get to the NEC Spring show.... we'll have a meet up there!

Morning Julia. Wouldn't mind a rummage on your desk that's for sure. Have a good week, Cindy x

Sandy said...

Looks like its all happening on your desk or that its getting all ready to happen. The costumes below look fantastic did they have fun at comicon?? How could they not have fun though. Just to let you know the owls have hatched and I managed to get a photo of the babies. I have it on my blog. Sandy :) #44

Jaki Morris said...

I love the look of that prancing reindeer stamp. And a label printer? Please report back it sounds like fun.
I always love your desk there's so much to look at. I've been MIA for two weeks but I have returned!

Jakix #75

Keren Howell said...

Ah,yes, the scene familiar to all of us - a worksurface buried under "stuff". Glad the costumes turned out well...I see Miss Dunnit has discovered that participation in fan conventions is addictive! I met my husband at a Star Trek convention so I'd advise caution...xxx Keren

CraftygasheadZo said...

Morning! Your label thingy caught my eye too, it's blue you see, always does it, but labels are good. Do let us know what it's like. Anyway I'm here, and posted. Yay! Bit longer than normal but it is my 200th post so please forgive me? Your desk is always such fun with fab things to be found. I need a chair for my iPad now I've finally realised I can watch footy on it while in the craft room. Makes for a happy Zoe! Take care lovely. Zo xx 82

Jackie said...

Good morning Julia, I had to go back to your blog to find your reindeer stamp! I have an Artemio stamp on my desk waiting to be inked up, it's not a Christmas one though, it's a butterfly.
Enjoy the rest of your week :)
Jackie #82

slowlaneblog.com said...

WOW a lot going on there. Thank you for the inspiration re the Calendar....I may just print my own for the coming year.I have neither Chair or iPad :( maybe if I bought the Chair my fella would gete the hint and gift me the iPad to sit in it???!!!

MaggieC said...

Sorry you and Jan cannot go to the NEC this week. I am not going either, mainly because I have spent my crafting money for the rest of the year. At least the stamps I have got will last longer that one week. You see to be very busy as usual. I love the different uses you have for that deckchair. have a good week. xx Maggie

Lauren O'Donovan said...

I love your 'ipad' deck chair I may need to invest in one of these as I am always struggling to keep my ipad propped up whilst crafting x

Chloe G said...

3rd WOYWW in a row for me! Woo-hoo! Thanks for hosting - it's great to be here x

Peggy said...

Good day! trying again to make it all the way through so many awesome things to look at I was intrigued by the label maker doesn't look like mine I'll have to check it out closer have a great day Peg

Chloe G said...

I lied! It's no. 4 for me :-) and an ipad deckchair is a great idea (not that I've got one!)

Caro said...

Your desk looks fab! I love the idea of a label maker...do let us know how you get on. I have been looking for one for ages, but dithered about which one. Thanks for sharing. Caro #73

Angela Coles said...

have fun with your calendar and the new labeling machine

Darla said...

Ooh I love trying new machines of any kind! And I'm out of gum....hmmm

Buttons said...

Looks like you are keeping busy Julia. Do I sense some reluctance in using the new stamps? It'd be great to see what you come up with when you do get to play. Happy WOYWW, hugs Buttons #96

Lots keeping you busy on your workdesk - look forward to finding out what you think of they dymo typ gadget from artemio.

The colours of the label tape look much nicer than the dymo ones. I look forward to hearing about the machine - it may go on my Christmas list!

Goodness, we managed a number under 100 this week. We may have to purchase a deck chair for our ipad eventually, at the moment we gave a cover/ stand thingy for ours.

Becky said...

Ooooohhhhhhh, label maker, music to my ears! Happy WOYWW!

Monica said...

Quite a change from last week. I showed my whole mess this week as the room was a mass of mess. label makers are interesting, look forwards to seeing how you use it. Thanks for making every Wed. feel a little exciting

Carolyn Phillips said...

I'll be interested in how the new machine works out, I never seem to have tape for my Dymo when I want to use it.

Eliza said...

Neet costumes, we have just had Armegeddon here which is similar but I have not had time to upload the images that I collected. Such fun and can not wait for ComicCon

You have one very interesting desk this week, with little snippets of lots.

You should pop on over to my blog and check out the good news. Sorry about the long post.

Hugs Eliza

mamapez5 said...

Hi Julia, I am just as bad. I didn't even make my calendar but it took me until yesterday to turn it over to November, so that's a whole week of appointments missed!
I have filled my die storage folder so I need a new one. perhaps I will try you idea. It is more versatile for the varying sized dies.
Happy Wednesday.

Shoot. It's Wednesday and I forgot. Again. Sorry Mrs D. Will try harder next week. *hangs head in shame* xxx

Poor little reindeer is feeling neglected. lol. I like the magnetic sheet idea for storage of metal dies. And now I want to go grab my label making out of it's storage box. Hope you get some crafty time soon. Happy Wednesday.

Karen McAlpine said...

Oh no, we never PLAN to buy lots of die cuts! It just happens--by magic! Still liking that reindeer. Off to post my desk pictures!

Sylvia/LittleTreasures said...

#112 here enjoying all that you have stacked up for us to enjoy. Love that magestic looking reindeer. And happy to know I'm not the only one with a feline prowling about my work space.
They just seem to love everything I touch.
Your calender looks quite bare..but if like mine it will fill up fast and no time to sit and relax.
Enjoy a fun week and thanks for hosting once again

Ohhh Snap said...

Lovely creative space you have there :D. Love the magnetic sheet idea, I'll have to look into it, I have a few Papertrey Ink Dies in need of a good storage solution. Thanks for sharing :D.

Gita said...

Hi Julia, looks like you better get crackin' on that November calendar. Before you know it the month is over!! Oh that poor reindeer...waiting to be used. i am the same way, have pulled out stamps to use and they are still there under my pile. Take Care!!

Laura said...

Even if nothing is going on (although I think printing the calendar could count?) it is a desk full of potential and future creativity. :-) Happiest of Wednesdays from Laura, the Bookworm, happily having a partial day off work and off to meet husband for lunch soon. A rare occasion, indeed!

Whimcees said...

Hello!

I have been catching up on your posts - so much fun you always have! The radio, the costumes, the lovely cards and projects, your wonderfully full workdesk photos! Love it all! I thank you again for providing a space for all of us to share and wish you a happy day!

Hugs,

Elizabeth said...

Hi Julia, finally reporting in ... had a busy morning and I don't know where the time has gone! I think that we are going to have 'rubbish lighting' from here on in until it's Spring again ... well, here in Scotland certainly :( I've just pinched/borrowed the EM's labelmaker and the replacement tapes are soooo expensive, however the jobs a tidy one, that's compared to my usual handwritten labels. Hope your day has gone well. Elizabeth x #75

PS: I can't get over how much Miss D is the very image of you ... my daughter looks absolutely nothing like me!

Fiona@staring at the sea said...

Wow! Cheaper than a Dymo? Mine cost £4.99! I like the look of the different coloured tapes and I'm wondering if they are interchangeable. Still liking the little reindeer too.

scrappymo! said...

Thanks for the advice re Little miss C...she so loves WOYWW...another couple of years and she can leave her own comments!
I will try your inking method. it is funny cuz I was sort of thinking the same about the right hand over pressure. The worst thing is I like my whites to match so was stamping of 50 cent copic paper and ruining them...ugggggh. I haven't stamped for awhile as well...and it does seem rusty at first and then you get into the swing of it again.

Bernice said...

Sorry you are missing out on the NEC - thought I might meet you there. The magnetic sheets for storing dies sounds like a good idea - it would be useful to have them all in one place. I think I've seen the book deckchair thing recently in 'Lakeland' if anybody is looking for one,

donnalouiserodgers said...

ah now see you have given me an idea, if you follow written instructions so easily (pull out and keep) I, for sure, am making you a

DESK SIGN:
that says

"Sit or Stand HERE, close mouth, switch off easily distracted brain, switch on Focus Brain - now CRAFT,
Please DO NOT
a) pick up the phone,
b) decide you urgently need to do something
c) consult LLJ or SKG for advice...."

and by golly a new desk type shall emerge

( on second thoughts stay just how you are cos that's what i love...I'll send the sign and I want you to scrawl over it in big black marker pen a suitable comment such as ('expletive' OFF Doone....)

Kim said...

Very busy desk as always! I love your idea of the die keepers..I assume form the spellbinders type and not the movers and shaker type? I had made a frame, but it's getting full, and I don't have enough wall space for another...I might just be borrowing your great idea!
Have a great week.

Princess Judy Palmer said...

Are you implying I should get to work on my November calendar then?

Or maybe just my WOYWW post?

I'd rather just sit here.

Well, I'd rather not just sit here but that's all my painful lower back will let me do, although it is being snarky enough that it might not even let me sit soon. Crappy thing. I'm so looking for a new one on eBay.

okienurse said...

for some silly reason I am still giggling over the morphed gum boxes! I just found out (and bought) the same brand has a new economical size refill for that box of 180 bits. Yum! Lovely looking desk this week with all the fun new toys. I think I am going to try the magnetic sheets for dies. Mine are taking up too much space in plastic boxes! Have a great week! Vickie #77

triciasconfetti said...

Your post has reminded me that I really must look for some new plates for my Big Shot. They are very bent and one is cracked. They still work though , that is the problem. I forget until I need to use it that I need to buy more.

It really is very annoying trying to pronounce, this acronym of yours.

I hope the reindeer sees some action soon -- he looks delightfully swirly. (#126)

Chloe G said...

It's not annoying at all, you just say "woy wuh wuh"! Kept my 4 yr old amused all evening, anyway! ;-)

Queen Lightwell said...

Hey, sorry I didn't leave my comment last night...it was terribly late/early here. :) Your desk does look very busy this week...hope your new label maker works out well, were the replacement tapes cheaper than dynamo, by any chance? Bet you are busily labeling everything in the house right now, aren't you? lol :)
Deeyll #88

Nicky said...

Love the look of your new labeller will wait and see what you have to say when you use it - I too keep my dies on magnetic strips in a book I made for them - thats fits in one of the cubby holes in my desk - have a great week - Nicky :129

trisha too said...

Well, late as usual this week, but after being super early last week, does it average out?

It seems my lighting is always rubbish, Julia . . . oh, fun, a label maker and lots of colored tapes--yay for you!

:)

Carol Hornby-Clements said...

Lots to see. Is that a new style of a Dymo label gizmo?
Happy WOYWW

Always love your desk. Lots going on. I was a day late ha, and a dollar short this week. Went back to work, got up this morning and realized it was Thursday, ran and took a pic and posted. Oh to get in the swing of things again.

Tamika said...

The label maker was the first thing I spotted! I had an electronic one that ate batteries and I've been looking for a replacement! One day...

Paula Gale said...

Oh Dear...

I completely forgot to leave a message when I linked up on Wednesday morning. I hadn't slept all night so I did my post (between little nods) and finally posted, then fell to sleep... Darren left me there so I didn't get up then until nearly lunch - but still less sleep that the 8-10 hours I used to have when I was working full time! I digress... Nice variety of stuff on your desk. Also - nice to hear that you are not now going to NEC until March - I actually might be able to make that one - if I sell enough cards first though! I am striving to have some outlets soon...

hope you are well - I have a weekly planner that I laminated and write on with dry wipe markers. Mine line is usually blank apart from my mums doc appointments! It is a help although there is less going on these days - I'm just about remembering which days the boys are and aren't at college. Good idea - everyone should have one...

big hugs

Mary said...

I had to giggle when I read, not that I plan to purchase that many dies.....ya sure, my not plan also, however my bin of dies is growing....the label maker is very interessting. Please update when used. Off to purchase a Christmas Ornament for the exchange. This has become quite the search between us gals!
