What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 213. Really. 213

Barb..if you're reading this..so glad you may have felt the spark of inspiration from us WOYWWers!
HERE and HERE are explanation and help....come join in, it's not so bad. (These links take you to pages that are otherwise accessed through the widget in the right hand margin called erm, PAGES. I like it simple, I can keep up.)
And HERE is my desk....

Taken from the North wing end and looking remarkably similar to how I left it last Thursday.  Shopkeeper Gal has had the amazing good sense to stock the Reynolds (not a common product in the UK) and she mostly sells it as a great release paper for stubborn thin dies.  I've met in other guises and so plan to have a bit of an inky play.  Plan.  That's all I can commit to just now.  Let's face it, the last few days have been all about the cutting station work surface and the pigging Big Shot.  That's over now, so I guess free time can go back to being desk time.  As soon as I tidy.  A bit.
So that's boring of Ludgershall for you today.  Show me yours..it's got to be more interesting!

Not boring, clean and tidy, there's a world of difference! I hear the memory Box very thin metal adapter plate works wonders on the intricate dies, I'm considering one myself.

Very neat... obviously the loss of the Big Shot had you totally unnerved and you had a tidy up! LOL I bought lots of wax paper when I was in Clagary... because it was so available and cheap... haven't used much of it as yet but if you say it works on dies... will have to give it go on some of mine and see if it improves their performance!!

MaggieC said...

I wish my desk looked as "boring" as you think yours does. I think it looks impressive and full of the promise of major masterpieces. Have fun with it and with your "day job". xx Maggie #3

Nikki said...

It's a shame about your big shot and it's even worse the company hasn't made it so parts are replaceable what a waste!!!
So strange that something I see everyday in the stores and don't think twice about it crafters across the pond buy up like hotcakes :) happy Wed hugs Nikki #5

Create With Joy said...

So sorry to hear about your Big Shot breaking. Thanks for the early link up. It was a nice surprise - now I can go and spend the evening with my family!

Have a happy WOYWW!

Hi Julia,

Love what's on your workdesk, what do you do with the wax paper?
I saw your bigshot post, sounds like the same thing that happened to mine. You can buy the part from the US if it's a gear... But I ended up just buying another new one...
Have a great week crafting

Sandy Leigh said...

I think Reynolds Wrap is on my grocery list every month, for their foil and wax paper. So funny how we all use those products as much in the craft room as the kitchen! Love the north wing view this week. Hugs! Sandy Leigh #6

Daniella said...

I'm so upset I got here a bit late! I wanted to try for #1!! My computer freaked out :(
BUT, I'm still in the top 10!! LOL!!
I use waxed paper for a bunch of things and always have a roll in my studio!! I use the cheap kind,, not the fancy Reynolds!! LOL!! It does have a ton of uses. I love using it on top of sticky things while they dry.
Sorry about your big shot! That sucks!!
Have a great WOYWW!
xxDaniella

Barb King said...

Great tip about the wax paper, I get frustrated fussing around with those intricate dies, so I will give this a whirl!

Regina Hamilton said...

I have Reynolds wax paper on my desk (all the time). It's never used in the kitchen. Really neat desk. Happy crafting #12

BJ said...

Awake at 3.30am wondering what to do with myself - how about linking up, yippee you were here. Looks like you are planning mega card making there and your desk looks relatively tidy to me. BJ#13

VonnyK said...

Your big shot is so typical of things made today, they aren't made to be mended, just tossed away. Wish I knew what a big shot was, sounds like a good toy to play with when working. Don't waste time tidying up the desk, just do what I do, make a single pile out of everything on the desk and work in the hole that's left :)
Have a great week.
Von #14

Neet said...

On my usual early morning wanderings, thank goodness you are up, I need to get away early later. Never mind the piggin' BS you lucky girl having the Reyolds. Just wondering what you are up to with it? Now I will have to keep a look out on here.
Hope you have a better week now.
Luv, Neet xx

Belinda said...

Woohoo I made it in top 20. I am usually buried around 90 with that stinky old time difference! I think I would like to explore that big jar of buttons. This is a new angle of your desk. Well I hope you are well and you come visit if you get time.

peggy gatto said...

Oh boy, I can get that waxed paper!!!

peggy apl said...

how interesting that wax paper is sold in the craft shop and not the supermarket. i learned something new again in this international party! happy WOYWW, Julia!

Nan G said...

Really wax paper in the craft shop and not the grocery store!! Go figure....I learn something new each and every Wednesday! That stuff is a blessing for dies with tight thin little arms and branches etc. I also use the thin metal adapter plate with the wax paper. Have fun with it. Hugs Nan 25

ANNETTE HUSBAND said...

G'day Julia
nah leave it like it is as mine is a shambles of this and that too. It's hard for me to get Reynolds paper here too. Its great stuff though!!Rest that big shot arm today at least LOL
hugs

Sorry to hear about the BS. My Grand Calibur has gone to the big crafting room in the sky. I think I can beat you this week for having the most boring desk! Hugs. Pam#27

Have a great WOYWW

Anne Papillons said...

Good morning from Brittany in Franceeveryone! Juila your desk is so busy ans so many crafting things! I had a Spellbinders Wizard as my first die-cutter...didn't work from the start and SB weren't interested. Went in the bin at a cost of $129. Then a friend gave me a Cuttlebug! Why don't France and the UK sell wax paper anymore? It's such a useful kitchen item in addition to crafting. You will have to ask your friend to post Europe wide....send a link! My Aunt in Houston sent me some once!!! Happy WOYWW! #34

Sarah said...

Waxed paper sounds interesting but now at 6am it has got me thinking of a deli for some reason. I'll have half a pound of your best ham thanks. A suspiciously tidy desk there. I just blew up your pic and tried to read your list....Lol.
Sarah at 32.

Andrea said...

Shaz Brooks said...

Morning Julia, What a bugger about the Big Shot! Nothing made to be repairable anymore is it? I have a roll of wax paper in my room too- along with the baby wipes/cotton buds/kitchen roll.Just ordered the metal shim for the Memory box dies- everyone seems to be raving about how much of a difference it makes. I will keep you posted. Have a great week, hugs, Shaz#41 xx

Lynda Beazley said...

Hi Julia
I'm sorry to read about everything breaking - weird isn't it? Unfortunatetly stuff like that usually comes in threes- does to me anyway!
Hoping you have a better week this week
Hugs

Shaz in Oz.CalligraphyCards said...

ah Julia waxed paper sure wish we could decent stuff over here, but totally not found any after buying numerous one claiming to be such.
So just use a candle end on my dies, now quicker and easier.. and much cheaper!!

Well, you have had a week of it!! just read your posts down below.

I was interested about your big shot have one, but mainly use my bug as bought it first so mine wont wear out till my bug dies - thought it was dying and bought big shot cheaply...
.. and then someone on WOYWW told me how to fix my bug..

.. and do love the girlie stamps two posts down which were on your post last week..

..oh and last but not least your atc arrived and is featured this week! THANK YOU!
Happy WOYWW Shaz in oz.x #36 I think..

Annie said...

You know it's never boring to me if there is a jar of buttons to play with :-)
Please sit youself down for my next bit of news....
....and today I'm showing you some paper crafting :-)
Hugs,

Maisie Moonshine said...

Hi Julia, the one thing I really meant to get from the Hobbycrafts show at the NEC? Wax paper. The one thing I FORGOT to get from the NEC? Wax paper!!! Still haven't got any - thanks for the reminder. MMx

fairy thoughts said...

Hi Julia

Sylvia/LittleTreasures said...

Oh sorry for the farewell of your Big Shot..I couldn't live without mine. A new one would be immediately ordered.Love your ATC I received in the mail. Simple layers and SO very elegant. Thank You. Such a surprise some cannot buy Wax Paper/?. WOW it's a common thing here. If anyone wants to pay the postage I'll be happy to mail it over to you. Have a lovely week. We'll be on a Holiday the 4th, lots of Red White & Blue for a Country so True. Family gatherings and Flags flying high, with Fireworks filling the nightly sky. Can't wait, I need the break.

Francesca said...

Not so boring, love the big jar of buttons. I have some of the Cut Rite paper, found it really good as the release. Have a good day. xxx Francesca #52

Julie Ann Lee said...

I've never heard of Reynolds so now I'll look out for it. Your desk looks great and now that the Big Shot blues are in the past you can crack on with some great stuff! Julie Ann #49

Silvia said...

Oh Waxed Paper! I been meaning to look for some for ages but always get side tracked, thanks for reminding me:) EEEK about the Big Shot....another reminder that when I get mine must not overuse it!!
Happy WOYWW

Karen Ives said...

Oh dear, hope you get your big shot sorted. Have a good week.
Karen #55

Jackie said...

The wax paper really works for your dies I have a couple of them myself best bet is you have a American friend who has access to the base and can get it for you as it's less than £1 on base and I have seen it for sale for £4.99 in the uk
Jackie 38

Helen said...

Running late now, sorry! Need to look out for that wax paper! Helen, 2

Ria Gall said...

Hi Julia
what a shame about your bigshot this things are sent to try us. I am desperate to know what you are going to do with the wax paper and ink.
Happy WOYWW today I hope the rest of the week is a good one for you
Ria #52

sara j said...

I had no idea wax paper would work with dies. I ended up getting one of the memory box thin metal plates and it works pretty well. Could have saved myself the money tho! Of course then the tin foil, sran wrap and wax paper would be gone from the kitchen! lol.
Loved the west wing shot....and so sorry about your big shot. I use a cuddle bug and it will be a sad day if it ever breaks. The new ones just aren't the same.
Hope you have a great week Julia.

Hi Julia - I like freezer paper for printing on fabric - iron it onto back to run thro printer. x Jo

toni said...

Hi Julia
glad to see you're getting in some crafty time,so I'm looking forward to seeing what You've been up to with your die cutting have a happy day
Toni#62

Hettie said...

Morning Julia. I have a cheap alternative for wax paper if you use an ATG gun, keep the brown bits out of the tape boxes, works great!! And Free!
Sorry to hear about the death of your Big Shot. Typical you cannot repair only replace. No wonder our land fills are so full! Grrr! It must be like your right arm going!
Hugs

misteejay said...

The change of direction for your view of the desk makes things look very different. Have fun with your wax paper.

Toni xx

Anne said...

Hi Julia. Sounfs like you been having a bad time. I am off to read your previous post to find out more. Your desk is darned sight more interesting than mine that s for sure. Hope my link up works this week. Happy Woyww Anne x #65 I hope.

Craftychris said...

How tidy is your desk!!! I must buy some of that wax paper, I have seen some fab techniques using it. xx

Joanne said...

I spy a distress stain and I have that paper. My SD would love your jar of buttons. Nothing wrong with your desk, it's in progress.

CraftygasheadZo said...

I see tidy, efficient (?) and not boring at all! I've heard of Reynolds but not come across it. Real wax paper. Not seen that either!! Well I hope you get to play and get inky and have fun! Take care lovely. Zo xx 69

Jacqueline said...

Must invest in some of that wax paper (IF I can get a hold of it). It has a multitude of uses!

Sorry to hear about your bigshot! I'd literaly cry if mine broke, don't use it as much as I'd like but a lot more than i used to if you understand? lol

Take care
Jackie xx

lisa said...

Love that wax paper, couldn't live without mine and the wax cut dies are brilliant in themselves so it's a BOGOF I think!!!!
What a nightmare with your bigshot, but maybe it's a good excuse to go and treat yourself to the new pretty one that's just come out!! Always an upside.
Happy WOYWW
Hugs Lisax #72

Monique said...

yes indeed, really 213, the confusion last week was really funny, I came across all sorts of numbers, while hopping around. Your desk this week looks nice and tidy =).
xx

Uniflame said...

I love your jar of buttons! Maybe I should keep them in a jar as well :) It would look nice on my desk :)

Darnell J Knauss said...

I've gone to bed, gotten up, done my post, and now I'm too tired to type a decent comment. Plus I see I've missed a couple posts I want to properly read. So I'll be back tomorrow. Thank you, Missus! Darnell #77

sandra de said...

Now that is a lovely angle and it all looks so tidy. I wonder if our baking paper is like your cut-rite.
Sandra @78

Lisa-Jane said...

I've not used wax paper in my dies before, is there something I should know? (said a well known 80's pop band...) You're singing it now aren't you? ;-) Love that black patterned paper there too.

My name is Cindy said...

Sounds like you have had a week of it. Such a pity about the bigshot. Goodluck with your inky fun!! Cindy #69

Jacqueline said...

Well Julia....it would appear my laptop is throwing an almighty strop this morning...saved my blog post to draughts and then when I posted the link it posted last weeks post!! I will repost the link to THIS weeks post hopefully LOL! Sorry for the confusion xx

Eliza said...

Hi Julia,

So sorry I have just caught up with last weeks post and this weeks, long story. My condolences about the big shot and the tote, if you were here I would give you my big shot as I don't use it anymore but postage to england for it would be to expensive otherwise you could have it. As for the tote, have a good look around before getting another one, there are durable ones out there. Do you think it could of been an overloading issue with the tote? LOL

I am curious about this cut right wax paper, I know nothing about it, maybe you could explain more in a post.

Happy WOYWW to you thanks for hosting the best blog hop ever.

Hugs Eliza & Yoda 81 which will change LOL

Diana Taylor said...

I've never heard of Reynolds before, and that sounds a good tip for those tricky dies - I'm wondering if normal greaseproof paper works. Thanks for the idea! Hope you have a great week.

Zoe Ford said...

Oooh I like your Hello Kitty notebook and look at the gorgeous big jar of buttons! Your desk is looking a whole lot tidier than mine today!
Zoe #84

Bridget Larsen said...

I wonder if Reynolds freezer paper would work the same, I have oodles of it that I cant use for the purpose I intended it for
Bridget #85

Elizabeth said...

Morning Julia, the North Wing! Snort, as Di would say :) I think I might have an idea of the application you have in mind for the wax paper - look forward to seeing the result. Not that you can tell, but the inked and stamped backing on the card in today's post was wax paper embossed - not my most successful piece, hence the demotion to a backing role. Your button jar is almost overflowing now - what next, another jar? Have a good day. Elizabeth x #60

PS: Feeling better but still happy to take your advice and have a nap this afternoon :)

Christine said...

Thanks for the tip about the Reynolds - I thought using foil did it but several of my punches were no better so I will try this.
Please remember to transform the plan into action....... no rush......

Keren Howell said...

I'd have a total collapse if anything happened to my Big Shot - it's one of the original blue and black ones, has seen off 4 vagabonds (mostly replaced under guarantee, I add, so I sympathise. I also have a stash of waxed paper - useful stuff! Have a good week - xxx Keren

VonnyK said...

Me again. I received my copy of the Featuring Magazine this afternoon and loved the article on you. You're famous now!!

House of Bears said...

We got a little over excited there thinking your button jar was full of sweets!

okienurse said...

I have been so busy around here I actually forgot it was WOYWW! It has been such a busy hectic summer so far I am hoping it will slow down soon! Have a great week! Vickie

scrappymo! said...

Sorry to hear of the sad demise of your Big Shot! What a drag that they are not built to be repaired!

Thanks forthe waxed paper tip...I had forgotten that you do not have ready access to it and now you have given me a great idea for something to tuck into my suitcase for a couple of blog friends!
Not joining in this week as I am up at the lake with record heatwave of 38 degrees so we are all too melted by evening to want to craft!

Lynda Norton said...

I thought I was early, still only managed to be no.93, better than last weeks 119 though. Sorry about your BS, love your desk.

I have a lot of desks to view, will do so throughout the day, and do some random commenting.

Karen said...

Sorry to hear about your Big Shot, but perhaps you can go shopping without feeling guilty now! LOL! Have you tried using the inside bag in a cereal box? I find it works a treat in my Cuttlebug. Happy WOYWW! ♥ Karen ♥

Trish Bee said...

I love wax paper! You can make faberoo backgrounds with it :)

Fandhmum said...

Hi Julia, I enjoyed reading the article in Featuring, congrats.
I suppose your desk will be quite empty if you keep breaking things!
I'm no better, so far this morning, heat tool Kaput and exploding cosmic shimmer glue - fantastic!!
Have a great week
Rosie x

Sheri said...

Love that jar of buttons!

Laura said...

Good morning, Julia! My most recent favorite thing to do with waxed paper was inspired by Sandee in NC -- she once mentioned that she used it to line her misting box and then used it when it got to a proper state of inkiness. I did the same, adhered it to cardstock, and die cut it into shapes to use on cards and layouts. Have fun playing and happy WOYWW! ~ Laura the Bookworm

Mrs.D said...

You sound less stressed today, lets hope that things are improving now.
That Wax paper looks really good, where can I get it. The big supermarkets don't sell anything like. Have a great messy inky play.
Chris

Kim said...

I keep forgetting wax paper can be used with dies; I saw it and thought "Oh, she's been stamping candles!"
Have a great weekend!

Marit said...

I do hope you find some inky playtime soon... it's just something you NEED from time to time.. getting all messy with ink and paint! Happy woyww and a hug from Holland, Marit #101

Lacey Lynne said...

Thanks for hosting another great week! I was hoping to hear more news on The dead Big Shot.. lol

This week I altered some furniture as the storms had us in a frenzy.

nice to be joining in again, ive missed you all *sobs loudly*
enjoy your inky playing.

Maudieroff Roffey said...

Hi Julia - the bane of diecutters everywhere - cutouts that just wont come out of the die - and ending up with pinholes all over the place... even the easyrelease foam doesn't work on some of the intricate dies as there is nowhere for it to adhere to... someone should do a video about it... LOL
happy WOYWW Mxx #103 [for now]

StampinCarol said...

I recently purchased a similar product to your Reynolds but made by Cheery Lynn Designs. I did see it used at the store where I teach and it worked nicely. So sad about your Big Shot. Hope you get to "play" soon! Happy WOYWW!
Carol N #112

Fiona@Staring at the Sea said...

I have a roll of freezer paper in that brand, although I think that may be for a different purpose.

Deb said...

I was confused when I saw the wax paper on your table, I was sure I had never seen it in the UK! Great idea to use it with sticky dies! will try that!
Debxx

betsy (pharmgirl) said...

Can you believe they almost discontinued Wax Paper in the states! There was a big uproar from crafters - including quilters who use it a LOT - thank gosh that never happened!

Lindsay Weirich said...

Hi Julia! Had to laugh about you taking the big shot apart, I had to do that once when a die got stuck (operator error) and I took out a bunch of screws and nothing came apart but I was able to get my die unstuch. ha ha happy WOYWW! Lindsay #116

jill said...

See you can do tidy like me , lol. I must confess i did tidy up a little before taking my picture today. Jill #48

Elizabeth S said...

Hello! It's been a very long time but I haven't forgotten about you and I've finally linked up a crafty post! Hopefully I'm back! :) I have a little bit more time these days so I hope to get full swing back into crafting and I'm looking forward to a wander through the WOYWWers blog posts!

JoZart said...

I love my wax paper and treat it like gold. It's great crumpled up, straightened out, then ironed onto card. Then swipe some Distress inks over the surface and you will have a great eggshell crackle effect.
your desk looks like the Home from Home of the crafty world! Not boring at all.
Jo x

AnnieC said...

Your desk looks full of potential - I'm intrigued by the wax paper ... and I'm gutted for you over the Big Shot - if my Cuttlebug died I'd be in pieces (pardon the pun!) HOpe yo uget a replacement soon :o)

pearshapedcrafting said...

Oooh! Hope to see your inky play! I had some Lakeland paper that I used to make printed tissue using Stayzon - worked a treat although thicker than the expensive alternative!! Chrisx 119

Hammers said...

I like how your desk looks this week, with Mr ATG front and centre!! Having just moved to NYC, I have stocked up on the wax paper, which I tried so hard to get in the UK, it is awesome :) Happy WOYWW Cx #122

Queen Lightwell said...

Wow, isn't it amazing the differences in countries and what is readily available? Even our convenience stores carry Reynolds wraps! I'm glad your BigShot ordeal is close to being over, it is too bad it couldn't be repaired though. Did you decide to get the Pro one or just another BigShot regular size? Guess I'll have to wait and see, huh? :) Thanks for hostessing us...I missed it last week, but I was out of town and didn't even take my computer! 3 whole days I didn't touch a computer! I'm pretty sure it's a record for me. lol Thanks, again, and have a wonderful week dear! Deeyll #123

Sarah Evans said...

I love how well used your desk is! I am too much of a neat freak to leave mine with any mess for too long :)

Sharing some step by step art today - thanks for hosting :)

~Rasz~ said...

It looks nice and tidy. Sorry your Big Shot broke. I use wax paper all the time and never thought of other people not being able to get it. Maybe all the US WOYWWers could send you some? I'd be happy to, just email me.

BTW, I am "125" again. I think this is the 3rd time since I started 6 weeks ago. Maybe I should just aim for 125 instead of a smaller number, lol! Have a great day!

April Story said...

I spy a box in the background that looks to be full of paper scraps. Are there more goodies back there? Are you hold out on us?

Hi Julia
thanks for stopping by - yes I think you are correct - the papers in the Home to Nest range are rather too "loud" and drown out the toppers ! Glad it wasn't just me ! Ali #28

Joining in from Italy again! Such a palaver - photos on mini mobile, upload via blogger app (can't see it as phone is a mini-Xperia!) Onto hotel laptop.

Ooooh, waxed paper?? I was just saving some, thinking on how I might like to art journal with it!!.. Cant wait to see what you have in mind to do with it! Thanks for hosting.. This is my first time participating! ~tina

Spyder said...

Oh my goodness I'm sooooo behind, no honest, its always behind...wobble wobble.Wax Paper?? Now there's a thought! Do I need to get me some? Is there room in my messing craft room to fit it in? Is this wax paper the stuff I use for cakes and stuff... ? Can I eat it? Note, my camera's working again but I still haven't added my desk picture... Have a great week Happy WOYwW!?

Sandie said...

How annoying to have a Big Shot that isn't working properly! They seem pretty tough but I guess everything has it breaking point :(
I have heard about waxed paper releasing dies. Not tried it but thanks for the reminder!

Cazzy said...

Hi Julia, the cut rite is a wonderful product, I bought some and it makes so much difference to intricate die cuts.

Well I am here, probably last, nearly didn't get here at all.

Cazzy x

Dianne said...

Hey Julia, just got home again, and no Cazzy I'm later :O). Well shesh make one scared to buy a big shot, not in my buget anyway:). The wax paper you can get in the dollar store, I'll have to bring some over for my DS. In england they sell the cooking mats, I' got a couple last time I was there, need a new one, we can't get them in Canada or the pureed tomatoes and garlic in a tube. Funny how that happens. Your desk looks so clean, you have to get to it and mess it up without that darn big shot. Hope you can have some fun at your desk soon, thanks for hosting the best blog hop around Miss Julia and have a great day.. Going to peek around now..

Vicky F. AKA Crafting Vicky said...

Funny that the wax paper would not be something common... I take things like that for granted lol. Love the great jar of buttons.

Ok better late than never! Another messy desk day! And some pink gelli printing (light pink is not a color I normally use but it is for another challenge)...

It took me all day, but I'm back! I hope in the meantime, you have had a chance to have an inky play as you had planned. I like your neat one-sided layout ... would love to see your birth date there ...! Thanks for another week of HAPPY WOYWW, Julia!! Darnell #77

No wax paper there huh? I love your Hello Kitty journal. :-)

This is the first time I've linked up to WOYWW and I'll definitely be back! There's nothing more inspiring than other people's works in progress!

Looks very tidy and organised this week, Julia. It's so nice to be back on WOYWW after a long absence, now that I've at last got something to show! Thanks for your lovely comment, and I'm hoping for good news after my test on Tues.

Happy belated WOYWW,
