WOYWW? (What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday) 206

My life, it's getting close to the fourth anniversary, which is week 208. Check out the sidebar links to pages that explain the what and the why about WOYWW and the anniversary if you want to join in.  Are you ready?  No, nor me.  But it's OK, there's loads of time.  Unless you have some tidying up to do..then it may be a good idea to start on that....check me out:-


Untidy.  Oh yeah.  That's untidy.  I had made two cards.  The second is really what caused all the mess, and I actually will be tidying before I start again at some stage today...this is too much, even for me.  Mostly because I'm down to two pairs of scissors in the little basket at top left, which means I've 'lost' five pairs on my desk already...so enough is enough!!   The strange black and white photo is of my brother in law and chum (unknown) when they were in their 20s and in a deeply heavy rock phase. We found it whilst clearing out some stuff in the Joinery the other day.  It's very damaged, but I'm going to do something with it for him.  At some stage.  Really.  Apart from rapid onset weeds visible on the patio, I don't think there's much that's new there.  You eagle eyed will spot something, no doubt!
So join in won't you.  Read the 'about' page and if it's clear, link here!  Look forward to seeing you!  And don't be surprised if you get the odd visit from people who don't yet have blogs....there are lots of browsers out there - you certainly don't need a blog to be a desk watcher!

That's a really cool pic of your BIL. Love the card. Loosing supplies on your desk, I can relate to that. Happy crafting #5

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

Your patio looks a lot better than mine or even my driveway, which is filled with weeds that sprouted up this spring.

Love that photo. I can see it sanded around the edges and attached to a grungy rocking page.

Happy WOYWW, dear friend.

BJ said...

Not been able to sleep the past 2 nights, probably due to new dentist appointment this morning! So have been awaiting your posting eagerly, only to be pipped at the post by Neil! There is one other pair of scissiors visable on your desk btw (bottom right) but as the the others, best have a sort out. BJ#2

ANNETTE HUSBAND said...

G'day Julia

Morning...garden doesn't look as bad as mine. If weeds were counted as flowers I could have a garden at the Chelsea Flower Show (and win first place!) Hugs. Pam#14

Create With Joy said...

Funny thing is, everything looks great to me!

I've been crafting on my DR table. The cats believe that if it's on the DR table, it is definitely a mealtime snack!

HAppy WOYWW!

Neil said...

Hi, weeds, what weeds? and how is it possible to lose so many scissors! LOL
Have a good day anyway.
Ps, Mr linky was playing silly buggers this morning and added my link while I was still trying to edit so can you remove me from #1 slot please, I don't deserve it......

Helen said...

What a great picture of your BIL - can't wait to see how you deal with it for him - how long do you think you'll be.....(hehehe)
I haven't got ready for the crop either...wonder what size bag I'll bring this year...!! No 17 (I know, but I'm on a day off today!)

Nikki said...

LOL I'm guessing your desk eats scissors among other things that seem to go missing on them
Hugs Nikki #3

Nan G said...

Only two cards huh? I see flat sponges used for ink blending I presume? I spy three pair of scissors on the right and a pretty card in the middle. Cool pic of your bro. Nan G 18

Minxy said...

Loving the look of the WIP card, as for the rest of the mess... well I just don't see it any more lol
Hugs Minxy #20

Janene McAnally said...

Lol Julia, I don't think that your desk is too messy at all!! What a great photo you found, and if you do something with it I would love to see what you do. :-). Love the fifties style card, I saw the stamps in a previous blog and thought how much I liked them. Might have to track them down!! Happy WOYWW.
Janene #19

Ria Gall said...

hi Julia
your desk has lots of interesting things on it for us to look at today. You didn't mention the two cards we can see and there must be others because you have used cut and dry foam there sorry didn't manage to find your scissors.
I hope you have a great day today and enjoy WOYWW.
Ria #22

Marianne said...

well I think your weeds are lovely. Mostly because they look just like my weeds. And your desk is beautiful...as always. I guess I had better start thinking about my ATCs.

Kyla said...

Wow, that's a lot of scissors!
Fabulous creative desk as usual and I like the thank-you card you made.

Kyla

Andrea said...

LOL it is a busy desk... and so many lost scissors ... I hope you find them all LOL ,I like the rationale though once you loose most of them it's time to tidy !.I'm a bit smug today as i've made my first ever ATC only one but its progress.. have fab week
Hugs Andrea X

Alison Wade said...

Happy WOYWW. Scissors - I haven't counted how many pairs I have, but they all live in a pretty purple pot right in front of my 'working zone'. My trimmer lives underneath the desk right by my feet, so I am covered for all cutting/trimming occasions! Ali x #28

Lunch Lady Jan said...

Wow, you have been getting down and duty at your desk since I saw it last Friday!! That photo still cracks me up..he's like a young Frank Zappa!
Hugs, LLJ 29 xx

Spyder said...

I don't mind swopping (swapping) with your untidy desk, it looks for tidier and more creative than mine.... my hall's worse. Have a great week.
((Lyn)) about #35 this week I think

JoZart said...

Just about to leave Ljubliana for Italy for a few day so popped in to say a quick "HI!" It's all because of WOYWW D and I met up and are having this amazing opportunity, so thank you dear Julia!
Lovely card on the desk and I think it might be a good idea to add a photo of each mess in with the card to show just how much has gone into making it!!
Bye for now, must go!
Jo x

Sue from Oregon said...

Ha! I thought I was the only one that needed lots of scissors. Really-I have 8 pairs at my finger tips, when they are all picked up that is. Many times I am down to one pair...all others buried as well! We certainly are two peas in a pod!

Jackie said...

I see you have been using your stamps your new stamps that were on your desk last week
New mug on your desk? Like it
Jackie 6

Kezzy said...

Lol I'm in need of tidying up today before starting my next project as my desk is super messy I'm dreading going up there lol but will take a picture of fun creating. I love the cards you have made, can't quite see all of the second one but I so like the colours. Ooooo I spy some bigger buttons not in the jar and wow they are so bright and colourful. Shame about the photo damage but I'm sure you will make it into something wonderful. Happy woyww :-) hugs Kezzy xxx

Darnell J Knauss said...

Yikes!! But weeds are good right? You can't see weeds if you have snow on the ground and for them to grow you need rain AND sun, right? Weeds are good then.

Love the I heart choc mug and the old-timey photos are fantastic!! It will be wonderful for you to affix them somehow so they can be treasures for the future gene rations! Have a wonderful week, Julia! Darnell #38

craftydebs said...

That's a busy desk you've got there Julia not messy! Love old photos don't you? I was given a whole biscuit tin of them when my Dad died dating right back to Edwardian times- I'll do something with them.....some day!

fairy thoughts said...

It is good to see you back at being creative this week, the card looks great and I see you still have that lovely bag of buttons there too. As for the weeds , well they grow what ever you do at least they are green and colourful he he
janet #29 ish

RosA said...

Oh well, you know, it doesn't look TOO bad, to me, but then again, if you've lost five! pairs of scissors then I guess some tidying (or at least rearranging), is required.
RosA # 42

sara j said...

I thought the photo was an album cover...show's you my age!! They do, indeed look like rockers. It seems that mid-century fashions are all the rage and that's just fine with me. I love the card you are working on and think it's grand your working at your desk as you learn your new job!
I'm afraid I made a mess of my post this week, and sadly don't know how to fix it. The first one for Sara j is incorrect...it's No. 47 that has this week's post.
I'll miss you all next week, but happily I will be back for the BIG anniversary!!
Sara j #47

Elizabeth said...

Morning Julia, I expected no less than a mess. I'm not saying you're normally messy and it's not that I've come to expect it, but now that you are the carpenter's apprentice, just when do you find time to tidy your desk, let alone wage war with the weeds. The ancient, if damaged photo, is brilliant - your BIL is going to love being reminded of that phase in his life :)) Have a great day. Elizabeth x #37

Almo said...

Hi Julia, Scissors with legs, yep I have a few of them! Love your little vintage card on your desk today. The photo of your BIL is a great find. I am sure the damage can be overcome for you to be able to use it. Hugs Mo x

Bridget Larsen said...

I dont see no atcs on your desk but its a busy one this week.

Bridget #39

Annie said...

I'm chuckling at the thought that you tidy up when you run out of scissors...it's a bit like that here but with my pink snips :-)
Have fun in your search :-)
Hugs,
A x

Shaz in Oz.CalligraphyCards said...

ah dear Julia - your desk shot made me feel totally at home!!!

... mine is often like that but every fortnight (cleaning day) have one big clean up then explode for another fortnight ..

well slight exaggeration, but I can so understand how your scissors are lost.
I have three and sometimes cant find any. Really have four but one set has been so lost for so long dont count it any more.

I wonder if you can throw scissors out as beginning to feel may have gone visiting somewhere, along with my swirl die... and embossing buddy??


..happy WOYWW ~ late again and no late note either :D Shaz in oz.x #49 ( tink..)

toni said...

Glad to see you've fitted some creative time into your busy schedule happy WOYWW toni#51

Twiglet said...

Yes and when Annie has lost her pink snips she always checks me out just in case I have walked off with them!!! (Sometimes they fall into my bag - honest! lol) So wet here we will have weeds a foot high soon! x Jo

Karen Ives said...

You desk is crazy, hope you find some treasures when you tidy up.

I've linked - I hope I have time to hop as well this week!

Julie Ann Lee said...

Your desk looks amazingly interesting and what's a few weeds on the patio: they add character! I made a huge mess yesterday just making a tag - how does it happen? Took me ages to clear up and it was 9.00pm before we could have supper! Have a great week and thanks for all the fun that WOYWW brings.x

Paisley and Brown Paper said...

And here I tidied up my desk for this weeks WOYWW! Usually it's organised chaos, like yours... right? LOL!

misteejay said...

I think scissors must be related to socks - both are always getting lost.

If it wasn't for the fact that I live on a main street you could almost imagine that my house is in the middle of a meadow - well that's what I've been trying to convince myself everytime I look at the grass and weeds that are shotting up at a rate of knots (ground is far too wet to get the mower out).

Toni xx

Fandhmum said...

Good Morning, Julia.
Happy Wet Wednesday to you.
We are all going scissor spotting now, I can see 2 in the pot and 2 on the desk so far- will have to look closer.
Perhaps we could do it as a spot the ball (er Scissor) competition!
Have fun
Rosie x

glitterandglue said...

Good morning, Julia. How is it that the desk gets so untidy?? I only made three cards yesterday, and suddenly - everything everywhere. It just doesn't add up, now does it?? Great card, though. Love it! Weeds.
Now why do they grow faster than the flowers?
Have a great week. I'm off to look for your scissors.
Margaret

Monica said...

It is now 2.30 am and time to try to get some sleep before the sun breaks out. I love all the things on your desk. You really have put some work into this project and make getting woken up by flashes and bangs worthwhile.
Monica who has to check her number that is about 64!!

Maudieroff Roffey said...

Hey Julia - seriously - I didnt think I had any OCD type issues - but when I look at your desk I - well I just want to clear it all up for you.... LOL - Mxx #65

Helen said...

Can you delete no 32, Nicky - Minxy asked me to link her but then managed to wake up before I saw her message...and I didn't notice! so is on twice! Helen, 17

Zeffy said...

you had me chuckling...I feel better as i am not the only one with at least half a dozen of scissors on my desk...love the old photo....waiting to see what you do with it.have a good week.

sorry I am # 70!!

Queen Lightwell said...

Well, it may be messy but don't I spy a really fab card there? :) Thanks for hostessing us again this week. It is hard to believe how close the anniversary is getting...wish I could come to the crop but its a little far for me. :) Anyways, thanks! Deeyll #72

CraftygasheadZo said...

Well I'm seeing lots of fab things there on that desk, from the super pic to the fashion make at the front, I spy 1 pair of scissors so I guess you do need to take it all off and start again to find the others! Didn't notice the weeds until you pointed them out!! Not long now till we all get together again. Can't wait!! Take care Zo xx 75

Your workspace looks like a lovely place to sit and be creative. Love the view from your window.

BJ said...

Julia, I got my décopatch on-line, WOYWW post has the link today, free P&P for the next 10 days. Got some ATG refills from another supplier in the end. BJ#1 (now - yippee) and trying to remember to breath.

Lisa-Jane said...

I'm so impressed by your apprenticeship at the joinery, even if it is not entirely selfless ;-) It must be heaving work so I'm sure there are other benefits too. Glad you are still getting time to craft though and that card looks splendid! I dis like the stage of losing things and knowing I have to tidy up. There should be an app for it...

Sandra (Stamping For Pleasure) said...

Morning Julia . . . yeah your desk is pretty untidy . . . but I bet you know where EVERYTHING is don't you? At least I knew I was in the right place!

okienurse said...

Busy desk as usual! I don't think a crafter can create with a clean desk...that is my thought on the matter and I am sticking to that. Up all night and all day so I am off to bed right now and will be back in the morning to surf the blogs! Vickie aka Okienurse #81 (yes a little late to join!)

Lovin that vintage looking card. those ladies look oh so elegant!

Great photo of your BIL...would look great blown up into a rock star poster.

I smiled when I read aobut the scissors...they sure like to hide in between the layers of paper and debris when we are creating!

Zue said...

Hi Julia
You got to use that photo, would be criminal not to!
It is weed growing weather...don't worry about them...we all have them.
have a great day!

Helen said...

Hi Julia Today my mess is skilfully out of shot! Love the photo - it would work as it is for a rockin' layout. No distressing tool required ;-) I too need to make a start on my ATC swap. We'll get there. WOYWW Hugs from Helen 88 Do you think that number has significance - finally started the diet yesterday!!?

Diana Taylor said...

I absolutely love that card with the 50's images on - the background is fab - I love it!

Joanne said...

Woyww-ers always 'have a go' at me for having a tidy desk, but honestly I just can't work in a mess. Everything has a place and everything gets put back in it. You will be amazed at the things you find during your tidy up. Enjoy.

Hi Julia,, yes, definitely passes the untidy test with flying colours.
Love the pink & green sponges- those are well cool colours, even for me who doesn't do pink!
Great pic of your BIL- long live heavy metal :). Have a great week, Hugs Shaz #85 xxx

House of Bears said...

Losing 5 pairs of scissors made us laugh, we always lose tools when crafting!

Di said...

Super photo Julia - remember to show the result........if you can find it once made of course, it might end up hiding with the scissors. You need a good old fashioned mug tree or summick to hang them from.

Happy WOYWW, Di xx

Lindsay Weirich said...

I saw the photo and thought it was the comedian Gallager, you know the American comedian who smashes watermelons with sledgehammers (us Yankees are easily amused it would seem LOL!)I'm glad I'm not the only one who loses half a dozen pairs of scissors in a craft session! Happy WOYWW! Lindsay #101

Robyn said...

Ah piles!
I, of course, never lose anything…
There is so much piled on my desk, I could probably dig for gold!
Thanks for welcoming me to your place.

Debbie said...

A messy esk is a sure sign of a happy crafter! I noticed you have a bag of buttons and that reminded me of my randmother's button jar my daughter inherited. Maybe I'll raid it for some projects later? Love the zany black and white photo of your brother! No doubt will make a great project 'one day' but oh my...I bet your 'to-do project list keeps multiplying as fast as mine! Thanks for sharing!
I wonder why a few of our linkies are showing up in red today???
We'll I'm off to visit! Be blessed!

Your desk is always so interesting. Scissors always get lost in my studio as well! Guess the little craft faries carry them away in the night! Darling little card with the clothes on the line. Very inspiring! Thanks for sharing. dix---

Sandy said...

Your card is just lovely and it was worth the mess and loosing all those scissors.. I do that as well they just vanish I only have 4 pair maybe that's my problem I just need more of them.. Sounds like maybe another at least 4 pairs.. That photo of your brother is wonderful.
Sandy :)

Gibby Frogett said...

ooh lots going on today Julia.. when I was moving furniture around the other day I used a magnetic sheet to find some really small screws in the dust..perhaps you could locate your scissors that way :)
Love that photo of your BIL too are you going to repair photo with software first?... have a great day..Happy WOYWW.. Gill x

Carole said...

What a lovely vintage card. I spy 2 pair of scissors on the right...black and red.So just keep on crafting.

Deb said...

lovely card, nice to see you using those stamps I was admiring!
I have that hot chocolate mug, can't believe it, it is quite old bearing in mind we have been in the US 4 years this summer and I am sure we had it a few years before that!
I do love that size mug for my lattes!

Mary said...

I had to giggle about your missing scissors....if you look at my desk you'll see a cord that holds my scissors so I never loose them. Guess what...I know where the cord is, but I have no idea where the scissors might be! Every day is is Christmas at my house...I'm always finding things I've mis-placed or forgot I own. Have a great week!

Sandy Leigh said...

So it's time to go scissor shopping! The only way I buy my scissors is when I have 50% coupon at Michaels--then I can get the Fiskars! Love your busy place though. Hugs! Happy WOYWW! Sandy Leigh (bottom of the list today)

Liz Black said...

I love your desk, it's very comforting to know I'm not the only one who can cause chaos! I'm also known to lose things in the chaos too ... usually a good sign for a clear out! Thanks so much for hosting and sharing. Happy Woyww Liz@130

Lisa Richards said...

After this long winter even the weeds look good!
The black and white photo was the first thing that caught my eye. I'm sure you'll come up with something very cool to do with it!
Have a great WOYWW,

Angelfish said...

Having a large collection of scissors comes in very handy, when the ladies I'm teaching forget to bring their own, or have a pair that are entirely unsuited to the job in hand!

What a brilliant photo, Julia. Can't wait to see what you do with it. Weeds are about all that can survive in this crazy weather, I think. A friend of mine said it was Mayvember today!! I spy Pickled Raspberry and Mown Grass foam on the left handside!!
Happy WOYWW

SueH said...

There’s definitely something about Black and White photos. The fact that we would take them and then have to wait about two weeks to get them back for the developers, only to find that 6 out of the 20 that were on the film are out of focus…….. my, haven’t we come a long way!
Loving your untidy desk, it just goes to show that you’ve been working…..unlike me.
Happy Crafting!

Hello Julia

What a desk, laughed when I read about the missing scissors. Too tired to even think about crafting tonight, still typing quotes, just nosing whilst I wait I hope for the final one for the night, its been full on in our joinery workshop this week...it goes like that don't you find. I hope the scissors turn up and I hope to be back joining in soon

Love the photo. Think your desk is tidier than mine - and the scissors thing is so familiar. I was looking at my photo as uploaded and saw a pair of mine!

Ohhh Snap said...

Happy WOYWW! Love the picture, was trying to work out if it was an old album cover (I still have a few feet of those and some 78s as well). Glorious craftiness going on there. Well done to lose *5* pairs of scissors. You have to really be in the zone to do that : D. The outcome is lovely I really like that card with the bit of something at the diagonal. And Graphic45 stamps? Hope your week is glorious! #116

Cazzy said...

Hi Julia,
I can lose things and look for hours - only to find them where I looked first!
Love the photo., and I like the card too.
I did get your message about the crop, I am not sure I can manage it, I seem to be so busy at the moment despite not working.

Carol x

Cazzy said...

Weird, I added my link, added a comment and then the link was gone, so have added it again. This happened a couple of weeks ago too!

Cazzy said...

OK I was wrong, last time I refreshed I was gone, and when I clicked it gave me 151 again. I refreshed again to check it was still there and now I am there twice, oh boy!

Michelle Reed-Russell said...

Love peeking at your desk each week Julia, but even more I love the view from your desk out the doors. I wish I had windows like that.
I've made a little something for you for the WOYWW anniversary and I was wondering if you could email me an address that I could send it to. My email is scrapworx@hotmail.ca
See you next week!

Kat Griffin said...

looks like loads of fun going on here
messy is a good thing to me. I'm leaving chalk dust everywhere lately. I do not notice details too good as far as what is new. I must admit my eye always goes right to a window scene. and I want to see what is out the window most times. always hoping Ill spot a critter or a birdie out there
