What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 222

Oh, mine is a haven of half light and tranquil nearly finished stuff.  Amazeballs!

Here is the first of many - well, 12 calendar pages for next year.  The reason I'm doing them so soon is that a handful of other crafters want to do a calendar workshop, so while the going is good, I'm making up kits as I make up pages.  No prizes for guessing which month this will be.  Funny..can't work in order with such things.   
So now, share with us your work space and what you're currently doing.  You're an inspiration.  Link your WOYWW titled post here and we'll come by.  See ya!

I'm going to guess October. I've keep saying that I'm going to make a calendar, but I never do it. Happy crafting #1

Deb said...

Gorgeous page, love the pumpkin die and what a fabulous background!

Ohhh Snap said...

I strive to work out of order as I get ideas, but then the OCD kicks in lol. There is a lot of desk showing under the craftiness : D. #7

Nikki said...

Oh I think your button jar has become a little lower and I'm glad I'm not the only one stores my inks upside down :) hugs Nikki #4
I have a little Halloween Candy to if anyone wants to join in :)

Sandy Leigh said...

Oooh...I'd love that calendar workshop. Your desk looks so lovely today! Sandy Leigh #11

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

I'm finding more and more that I also can't work in order. I have to work in order in my calendar, but that's because it's a daily thing (grin). Nice to know I'm not the only one who wants to skip around to avoid boredom.

Happy WOYWW from #2.

BJ said...

I can get the month but the grey rectangle beats me. BJ#17

BJ said...

Oh and I am sure Tim Holtz said you don't need to store the inkpads upsidedown at his workshop last week. He had a couple of other tips which I am going to blog when I am feeling better. BJ#17

Roberta B said...

Well that is a lot of calendars to do.. have fun with that, and cant wait to see them.

voodoo vixen said...

Now I would have just made the calendar page and it would occur to me afterwards about the kits... so you must be organised!! I hope you are using the haunted house die... I'll have to think of something to do with it pretty soon!

April Story said...

I hope you share the pages when you're done with them. I can't get the month. Is it in English - LOL.

sara j said...

Hi
I was thinking of you and Jan today - a half a world away but I'm guessing not so very much in sensibilities and thinking the world was a pretty amazing place. Then I open up to see what week we are one and read your lovely sentence about tranquility and I literally snorted. My desk is anything but tranquil this week. But still, perhaps you catch my drift! Have a great week.

Danie May said...

I'm flat out thinking about the next week let alone the coming months. Your Autumn inspired calendar page looks beautiful, the background looks to be shimmery and I love the cute pumpkin. Have a great week!

Jackie said...

Helen said...

I always want to make a calendar for my desk - but never get round to it... this will be a great workshop. I'll try and imagine what happens... Was awake in the night to link (toilet trip!) but only to find my anti virus programme had found a trojan virus burrowing its way through my computer, lol, so it took an hour to remove it (all, hopefully, though I'm not sure!) Have a good day, lovely Julia! Helen 23

Robyn Oliver said...

Looks like a lot of industry going on at your desk Julia...calendars are great idea must put that in my to do list. Have a great week Cheers RobynO#21

Oh I'm guessing it'll be one of those months either side of this one! I'm glad you told us, I thought it said killer in a line of different smudged inks or dark blood ...so please show us when they're done!! Happy woyww I think I was #46..... Have a great week!

Maisie Moonshine said...

As you say, a tranquil photo this week Julia - I'm impressed with your preparations in advance. MMx

Annie said...

How uber organised are you.....I'm impressed :-) Hope we get to see them when you've finished them.....I'm guessing the first is October.

MaggieC said...

Well done for getting so far ahead. I do a calender each year, but it is just printed off with most of the birthdays already in place, using my Family Tree programme. Hope you get it all done together with the kits you need. xx Maggie #6

Christine said...

One sick cat has me sitting in the morning sun at 'whaaat time'??!?!?! wondering .... where did the buttons go?
Have a good day everyone.

glitterandglue said...

I am impressed, Julia. Such organisation - well done! The only thing I can think of for next year is Dr appointments for hubby - we have already said goodbye to one specialist for 2013!!
I also always store my ink pads upside down - thought it was the right thing to do... seemed sense somehow.
Have a great week of calendars and preparation.

glitterandglue said...

OOps - losing the plot - that's what comes of thinking I will get out into the garden good and early - number 52 - not 92!!

Happy WOYWW, I always have a stack of nearly finished stuff Julia!

I thought I was going to be so early, even maybe the first, but just after midnight this post wasn't here, I kept trying but no! So I gave up and went to bed, and now I am in the middle, 66, oooo-er! I have never been so low!

Oh, getting a head start. But having classes that allow you to get this head start is definitely nice. :-)

famfa said...

Next years calendar and in Septemeber, well done you. I'm afraid I don't get a prize, I can't guess what month it is, I thought it said Kittens but I diesn't does it?

Sarah Leonard said...

I love hobbycraft. I have only been once (and under strict supervision just to be on the safe side). So many things I could have bought!

Thanks for hosting as always :)

sandysewin said...

You know, it's not that our desks are messy, as long as the mess is ever changing. :-)

Congrats on all you've gotten done!

Thank you for stopping by my blog earlier and for the nice comments.

Happy Woyww,

Arnoldo L. Romero, MLA said...

I got lots of new goodies on my desk. Yeah!

Kimberly Hogan said...

TY for the visit. :D I must say that given the talented crafter you are, your comment about the project I'm working on made me giddy. In all honesty it's not hard to have even a so-so project look fab when using G45 papers. I'm currently sporting the Bird Song collection which I absolutely LOVE!!! I'm excited to see how your calendar turns out. I'm not one to work in order either. Keeps things interesting. How's your lower back feeling??? Better I hope. (((HUGS)))

ike said...

FABULOUS - I do love coming here and seeing what you are all up to. It's like a wonderful giant Hop... I sit with my coffee and gather inspiration from all these wonderful crafters :-D

Hi Julia, thanks a lot for hosting another one of those great chances to visit other people's workdesks, it's always very inspiring. I can't even remember for how many years I plan to make a calendar, no success so far ... Suzanne

Hi again, just want to say no.. that's not shore polish it's a tub of green Inka Gold. fun stuff. Roberta 17

Cazzy said...

Hi again Julia, Oh I know, I have seen the Unity Stamps over here, well some of them. But Unity keep doing these sales, and offers, right now for example there is 55% to 70% off some stamps and sets, and all the ones I bought were 55% off at least, so I wouldn't get them that cheap (and Unity threw in a couple of free Itty Bittys and some journal card things), I haven't worked out if the tax and fee made them more than here, I doubt it. HMCE seem to have dropped the limit to £15 so they catch more.

Carol

Kezzy said...

Wow you certainly are ahead, what a fab idea doing the kits as you make yours, very organised. I really really love the card/paper on the right hand side which is browns, coppers and golds flourishs, did you make this? If you did do you mind me asking how? And if it was bought can I ask where? I really really want one lol. Happy Woyww :-) Kezzy xxx

Robin Spitzer said...

Working in order????

I don't compute that idea!

Robin Spitzer said...

I have missed all of you! Been missing in action for months. Love your calendar!
