What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 194

Finished.  That's what's on my desk.  Finished the 'recipe' baskets for the grunge workshop.  Finished die cutting the spirals that will become flowers.  Finished my first ever piece of jewellery, more of which I shall brag about at some other time.  Of course, there's not a lot of tidy going on....but it's not terrible..I think looks worse from this angle because of all the stuff on the counter top against the wall.  You be the judge.  This angle does make it look as if I own the biggest ATG dispenser, huh!!  Photo taken before daylight failed on Tuesday late afternoon...(nearly 5 o,clock, hurrah!).  This post, badly written at Oh Em Gee o,clock on wednesday morning.  Yep, day out helping the worker do visits, measuring and generally being the glamorous assistant.  Yep.  Me.

Join in do - post a pic of your work area on your blog, put WOYWW in the post title then link here.  Please.  Thank You.  There's slightly more in depth instructions to be found HERE.
WOYWW Housekeeping:
Believe it or not, week 208 will be the fourth anniversary!  I know....you're all to blame and it's totally ridiculous. I wanna suggest we do another ATC swap and will create a separate page about it in the next few days.

There's a WOYWW Crop on June 1st at Burbage Village Hall (same place as last year).  Again, you don't need to commit at this stage, just wanna flag it up as something you might be within reasonable distance of that you could consider coming.  Again, there'll be a new page about it (because I can) rather than wittering on every Wednesday.  (Yah, like I never witter on.)

BJ said...

Yes to ATC SWAP, it was great fun last year and I was such a newbie then too.
My ATG IS that big! I am recently the owner of the pink one and it is far too big for my desk so I haven't remembered to take a photo with it in yet - duh!
I'm still sick with a cold which started rather like flu last Wednesday in the early hours, but I couldn't miss WOYWW now could I?
Thanks for this site it is amazing. BJ#4 (yay single figures - there had to be something good about being up in the early hours every day for the past week with my cold!!)

Helen said...

Yes to an ATC swap please!! You caught me out with your early (and live, not even scheduled!) post, was just loading up ready for later and - here you are!! I took my photo from a different angle this time too, must be the sunshine making us go doolally!! Have a good day today, even if you're going to be rushing around...but I can see you in the role of glamourous assistant - after all, Debbie McGee did it!! Helen, 5

505whimsygirl said...

Holy moly. My heart skipped a beat because for a second I thought I was number one! It sounds like you've got a lot done so that's great.

How cool that you know how to do separate pages for special things like the ATC swap at the crop in June.

Hugs, kay

Nan G said...

cant wait to hear about the atc swap! isn't making jewelry fun? just finished another 10 charms. only good thing about being awake with back pain....a low number on woyww!

sandee said...

woo hoo, another ATC swap, what fun! I think that big ATG gun is over compensating for something, eh? waving hi from the hills of North Carolina ♥

peggy aplSEEDS said...

fourth anniversary already?! wow! another ATC swap would be great!

Bubbles said...

Eurgh! I get to Mr Linky at position 5, and by the time I've pasted my URL and written my name, I've already slipped out of the top 10 into 14th place. Grrr... you other WOYWWers are way too quick for me *lol*
Anyways... Julia, that really does look like the most humungous ATG ever :)
I'm not sure whether I like finishing or not... I get a sense of satisfaction that I've done something... and then a sense of loss and bewilderment at "What one earth do I do next?!"
Have a wonderful WOYWW Juia!
Hugs from Bubbles at #14
*grump*

Sylvia/LittleTreasures said...

A good working desk, I like stuff and yours all looks fun. Spiral flowers, I have on my list to do. #10 this week, late my time and early your time, but I'm off and running on a good weather day before the storms come Thurs/Fri.
I'm all for another ATC swap..just love that fun. Have a great day and Happy WOYWW. Thanks for hosting.

Andrea said...

Nice set of draws you have on the left of your picture I wonder what's in them ..... Do I see a doily hanging out of the bottom draw?

Chrysalis said...

Desk looks interesting this morning, Mrs. D. Four years, eh? Time certainly flies when you're enjoying yourself. Hope you all enjoy this WOYWW! xx

scrappymo! said...

Yes to the ATC swap pretty please...I missed out on the last one and will look forward to it this time...I have never done one B4 but there is a first time for everything!!!

Your desk looks busy and your post makes the grunge workshop sound mighty interesting.

Can't commit to June but could be persuaded to come to an Aug crop...as I am going to England for most of August! I will be watching in case you have one then!

scrappymo! said...

Me again...Whoops sorry...forgot to say Scrappymo# 25

Krisha said...

Such a good feeling to list the things that are DONE.
Your ATG nearly gave me a fright being so close to the camera. makes it look like something you could take a ride on LOL Looking forward to hearing about your jewlery experience.
Krisha #21 (under 100 this week wahoo)

Francesca said...

I managed to get up early this morning and landed on the age my mother was until I could count, ha ha. Glad you finished all the grunge stuff. Have a good day.

Ann B said...

Wow, four years, what an achievement. Enjoyed last years ATC swap so looking forward to this one. Your ATG may look bigger than mine but I have the pink one as well, so there!

Finished....now that's a beautiful word. And your desk looks PERFECT to me. Fourth Anniversary...my goodness where does the time go. It's been fun sharing desks....I look forward to many more shares.

Redanne said...

Wow Julia, four years, that really is an achievement! And it is my 1st anniversary of blogging so yay! Yes please to another ATC swap, it was so much fun last year...... your desk is actually looking good - the glue gun does look rather large....ahem. Hugs, Anne x

Lunch Lady Jan said...

I look forward to seeing the finished bracelet as it was looking pretty darn good in its midway stage on Monday! Well done you for having a productive few days!!
LLJ xxxxx

sara j said...

Dear Glamorous Assistant,
An ATC swap - I am so
Wish I could do a WOYWW crop, but alas it's a bit far to go....
Congratulations for being FINISHED...sometimes I get just about there and then because it is boring work, and I would rather be playing with some form of color i just don't wanna. Turns out I don't wanna do a lot these days but play with color, so I have not finished "my assignment". So in reality I might be a bit jealous on you being finished. BUT I can still be happy for you.

Hope you get a nap or some sleep along the way today!

okienurse said...

busy looking desk...WOW 4 years...time flys when you are having fun! Thanks for sharing and have a great week! Vickie #28

Almo said...

Hi Julia, an atc swop sounds great, looks like you have been busy with all that die cutting for your workshop, but finished is a good feeling.

scrappyjen said...

Gill Edwards said...

i think your desk looks busy and full of good things but not really untidy. I look forward to hearing about the other things youve made.

Bridget Larsen said...

hahaha had to laugh at the "biggest ATG Gun" comment and yes it looks humongous, you lucky thing.
I like this angle to your desk as a variety
Bridget #45

Darnell J Knauss said...

Great desk, Julia! You've got a lot of finishes and firsts and a lot of mature ladies twitterpated over the giant glue gun! You are always amusing and generous with your time! Thank you! Have a wonderful week! Darnell #39 (for now)

Ali Wade said...

Happy WOYWW. I was so busy visiting other blogs, that I nearly forgot to leave a comment on here! Yes, to an ATC swap to celebrate your 4th anniversary. Yes, hopefully, to the WOYWW crop (just checking with hubby re. date of his trip up to Scotland for the Mountain Biking World Cup thingie - it is around the beginning of June and I was going to go if weather is ok). Well done for finishing so many projects. I have managed to put a tick against a few in my notebook this week. Very satisfying. Ali x #40

Kate said...

Glad you are already for your class. And yes to the ATC swap and get together!!

Annie said...

Just give me the jar of yumminess at the back of your desk Julia and I'd be happily occupied for hours :-)
Hugs,

4th anniversary already! It doesn't seem 5 minutes since we joined in the last one! ATCs were fun so we will certainly give them another go. Love the sideways look at your desk - you are way too busy girl!! x Jo

Carol Yates said...

ATC swap? Ooo-er! Burbage village hall? Will have to look up where it is.Thank you for WOYWWING up our Wednesdays.
Carol. #56 -why does the number sometimes change?

Elizabeth said...

Ah! The glow to be had from that one word 'finished', you're certainly right to enjoy the moment ... it won't last :) I think I've spotted the piece of jewellery among the essential tools of the trade. The glamorous assistant, I can believe it ... I've seen you in real life and I'd say you fit that job title perfectly :)) On that note, have a happy WOYWW. Elizabeth x #58

Suzanne said...

Hi Julia, I made it back this week! Love the new look blog, those colours are gorgeous. As always, thanks for organising this (for almost 4 years. wow!). Suzanne x

Busy lady! Your desk always looks so interesting. Loving the ATC suggestion. Happy WOYWW and thanks for being such a fabulous hostess x

Finished is good just as long as you don't finish WOYWW. Thank you for giving us the chance to look at out blog friends desks and work around the world. I have really got hooked with this and look forward to a Wednesday
Wishing you very Happy WOYWW
Ria #73

Wanda Rohlfing said...

Love your glass mat! I have one as well. I use it with my Fiskars Circle cutter (usually). Kinda funny, after I took my photos for this week's post and wrote most of my blog post, I trekked over to find this post. Low and behold, you had "finished" all over your blog post and my image was all about being "finished" too! What a coincidence! Thanks for sharing. Curious to know what a "recipe" basket entails? Does that hold all the supplies for a particular project? Kinda looks that way, but I thought I'd ask just the same. I love your button jar - so colorful!

Alison Scott said...

Wow.
Things finished? What does that mean?
More bare naked desk? How very daring of you!
ATC swap for 4 years - count me in please ;-)
Happy WOYWW

Being too tidy drives off Mr. Mojo (of that I am absolutely sure)! Your workspace looks just perfect to me. A lot of creative stuff going on there!

Have a wonderful workdesk wednesday!

die amelie xx

Cardarian said...

To me your desk looks quite tidy - ha, ha maybe because I am such a messy beast! Love the idea for ATCs - I am definitly in for it and my flight is booked and I will be there for the crop!!!
Lots of hugs,
Cardarian

Helen said...

Morning Julia. Hope you are not working to hard today! Your ATG gun reminded me that I got mine in the post this week. I tried it out for the first time yesterday. The trigger will take a while to get used to after all the little runners I have used but practice makes perfect. Thanks for the tip on the sale - I love a bargain. Happy WOYWW to you from Helen 82

sandra de said...

Who would of thought a bunch of crafters could witter on for 4 years!! Looking forward to another anniversary swap and your gun definitely looks big from this angle but you are the queen of woyww so you deserve a big gun.
Sandra @83

VonnyK said...

You certainly have done a lot on that desk. It nice when you have a finished mess, not just a general one.
Atc swap sounds like fun, I'm in.
Have a great week.
Von #62

RosA said...

Your desk does look rather tidy, but I would be tempted to empty the button jar and rearrange the buttons into colours, or sizes, or something :)
FOUR?! years! WOYWW, I mean WOW!
RosA @ 87

Glenda said...

Oh My goodness! Four years!!! I bet you never thought this would turn into this wonderful get together that just goes on and on. I know I would be lost without you and all the participants and Wednesdays would just not be the same! Great desk this week...wish I lived closer and could attend one of your workshops!
Glenda 88

susibee said...

I can't believe you've been going 4 years and I've only just found you!

The ATC swap sounds great fun:)

Happy Wednesday. Susi #86

Shazsilverwolf said...

Hi Julia- I'm in for the ATC swap- keep saying I am going to try ATC's, so this is my opportunity.4 years of WOYWW is fantastic- thank you for all the fun, and the new friends made, I already have Beloved Hubby primed for a trip to Wiltshire that weekend, lol.Have a great week,Hugs, Shaz #91 xx

Lisa-Jane said...

I like the idea of you being a glamorous assistant. Do you have to wear a feather boa? Actually that's probably not a good mix with tools is it? Boy oh boy its good to be back!

Tertia said...

Another ATC swap? Yip, I am in, loved doing it last time (it was my very first ATG EVER!!) and now I am hooked, shame on you lot for getting me hooked on yet another thing.
Your desk looks very tidy, puts mine to shame.
Happy WOYWW
Tertia

Claire said...

gosh! another year has gone by??? great idea to do the swap again :)
well done, you, for completing so many things *applause* have just looked on the map, and burbage is just over an hour away, i wonder.... *grin*

JoZart said...

So now you are the glamorous asistant, measurer, bragging witterer, all in one post! Woo hoo! It's all an organised mess and so productive so you gain your really useful badge (as opposed to the really useless badge) this week.
Can't believe we'll be having another birthday soon.!!
love Jo x

Winnie said...

I am on my having a blast and only discovered the fun a few weeks ago. Those spiral flowers look cool. I have never done a piece of jewelry, so I look forward to seeing your creation! Hmmm. ATC swap, I have yet to make one of those sounds like a hoot to me! Enjoy your week!

House of Bears said...

Good morning, that ATG gun does look rather menacing, and they say the camera never lies!! Greetings from the cold bears this morning.

Marit said...

I'm sure you make a beautiful, glamoures assistant! I'm in Holland and unfortunately unable to come to a 'life-day'... I only just started last week with participating in woyww and I LOVE seeing all the worksdesks, starting with yours of course!

Anne said...

Well done o getting so much finished it's what I should be doing - finishing, finishing and finishing. I cannot believe that's it time to celebrate another year, the fourth of WOYWW. I will certainly be joining in again - God willing that is :-) Happy WOYWW Anne #99

Good work on getting so many things done. I am feeling that sense of achievement too :) Happy WOYWW Cx #99

RosC said...

Hi Julia,
The ATC swap would be terrific. Last year, it got me onto something new, to me that is. I really loved it.
As glam assistant, I hope you have freshly ironed dungarees. What a splendid vision. The desk is fun to tour again this week with the bonus of a couple of firsts and some ticks on the list.
Hope you like the little pic of the badge. Thanks heaps.
Ros. #36

Maisie Moonshine said...

It's always good to get a finish! 4 years - wow - all that fun I missed out on - glad I'm here now and THANK YOU for this brilliant idea. MM x #101

CraftygasheadZo said...

I'm liking this angle, all looks fab & fun. Wow 4 years, loved the ATC swap last time so will def join in with that and of course I shall be attending the crop. Now I've found you, you're not getting rid of me! Take care & enjoy this week whatever it brings. Zo xx 59

toni said...

Hi Julia those flower spirals look enormous or is that the angle. I read your post about your colourful grunge cards and and it made me smile, I'm the sort of crafter who can't resist reaching for the vintage photo or walnut stain DI and obliterating a perfectly good bit of colour! have a happy day toni x

Fandhmum said...

I can't wait to see your beady jewellery thing.
Third week now and I am loving looking around.
Have a great week.

Robin Spitzer said...

Hi Julia! love that word FINISHED! Your ATG is huge..but truly, it IS that big...notice, one sits on nearly all of our desks! We depend on that little bugger making its job Huge!

I have never done a ATC, or ever any swap...so I think I am going to jump in with my eyes closed!

Belinda said...

Hi Julia!

Looks like you have a lot going on. Wish I were closer, like on the same continent so I could take one of your classes.

Curious about that pretty piece of jewelry you are hiding over there. Will await it's formal debut!

Have a blessed day girl!

Monica said...

You are just so prolific and in such a small space I am in awe.

Monica said...

Julie, trying again received an error comment. you are so prolific. I am in awe at what you create in so small a work space.

Finished is always good, right? :) Four years, crazy!! Happy Woyww!! #121 Becky

Di said...

Oooh, yes - I'm up for the ATC swop, even though making them brings me out in a nervous rash.

Still lying on the floor drumming my heels in a tantrum that I can't make the WOYWW crop :( It's bound to be huge fun.

Happy WOYWW Julia - hugs, Di xxx

Rebekah said...

Wow! I tried hard to get up and at it and be on top of this blog post today and I'm still #127...better than the 140s I've been doing though LOL!! Must be the time zone difference!! Hugs! And thank you for this fun challenge to keep me crafting and have something to show for! I can't wait to post a "finished" on 2012 PL. Soon I hope! Big party then!! :)

Lori said...

An ATC swap sounds great.

I just realized we both have the same heat gun and keep them both at the same spot on the left of the desk. Too funny!!

Enjoy hopping around the world today nosing into people desks.

Clever you, finishing all those things. I could learn something from you. Four years? Did you think it would still be going four years later? Another well done to you x

That's a very busy desk, would love to see the finished spiral flowers and would love to have a die to do this myself, oh well another thing to add to the wish list x

Whimcees said...

Hello!

'finished' is such a lovely work, isn't it! I am trying to do just that on a project that is long overdue. Four years is awesome - because of you we have all met so many others and been inspired by creations everywhere! Thank you dear lady! Wishing you a happy day!

Hugs,

Barbara Diane

Hi Julia
I have never made an ATC but I like the idea of a swop! This is only my 2nd WOYWW and I'm enjoying the experience and meeting new people...Thank you
Lynda B x

Queen Lightwell said...

Yay ATC swap! I can't believe its almost time for another one! That means I've been joining in for either a full year now or almost a full year and only missed like one or two weeks. Its been a blast! Thank you so much for hostessing this hop...I did get a card completed, with the new super fab from one of the sweetest people in the whole wide world Vivienne Kanban stamp set, and the pic uploaded for this weeks WOYWW and they were such fun to color! I would highly encourage you get yourself some. And the other set I can't remember the name of but it comes with a man...I am loving it for anniversary cards and I'm thinking Father's Day cards, especially for a Father-in-law, with whom one might have a more formal relationship, and so on. Anyways, super desk this week...it looks pretty tidy to me! lol Hope you have fun visiting the other desks and do come see my Kanban card. :) Hugs! Deeyll #159(last so far! lol)

Lórien said...

Hey Julia! Congratulations for finishing that bunch of things this week! I really like finishing crafts. Hope your workshop will be great!

Lizzie said...

Ha ha! "Oh Em Gee O'clock" - love it!
The "mess" on your desk is fab - it is Evidence of Hard Work and Creativity.
I like the spirals to be made into flowers. The baskets sound interesting too.
And I Love your huge button jar... like treasure!

akilli melek said...

been a busy week, but better late than never eh! love the ATC swap again, and going to try to come down in June if things go OK with Little Miss.

Kezzy said...

Hi, meant to say that last week the male card looks fab, glad you got to show it to us all :-) ATC swap sounds extra awesome and I shall start mine soon lol as last year I didn't get as many out as I would have liked. It feels good to finish creations, but sometimes I feel lost for a few days if I've had a lot of them on, and tend not too know what to start next lol. Yep it certainly looks like you have a mega ATG tool lol, huge, massive lol. Like the card on your desk, looks like inky circles but not quite sure at this angle, and I can see some jewellery braids, can't wait to see them :-)
Happy Woyww :-) Kezzy xxx

Time flies by Julia. Just realised I've had my VW beetle ten years in October. Where did that go.
Have a great week

Congratulations on having so many finishes! I like the new angle for your photo, I'll have to try that next week so that the true mess shows. ;-)

Hi Julie....I was too hectic so I did not play this week.....interesting angle of your desk,spirals look like the will turn out fine...I would grunge them up...I guess,but maybe that is because I am always so inky,that everything gets grunge up one way or another.....
