What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 224

Wow, mine could be excavated in layers.  
ipad laid on top of the Mini Book samples that I took to the Workshop yesterday.
Mini book samples unpacked and erm, placed on top of the calendar page I was working on over the weekend (no prizes for working out which month) and I can tell you but can't show you (because of the effort involved, you understand) that the calendar LO is covering a bunch of teeny tags that I've stamped with the days of the week.  Method?  yeah, a bit. Madness?  no doubt.
And pay attention Deskers....the moustache tape is on the right edge of the calendar LO and ipad.  It's a packaging tape printed with moustaches.  See?  So now you know.  Public service blogging.  There's my sexy glasses case, a much transported gift...crafting glasses...not any of the others dotted around the house.  And on the deckchair is a Baby card.  It's to send to a couple who have erm, had a Baby gal.  See, I know young people. I see nothing else of interest, but if you do, please point it out!
Join in this desk gawping will ya?  There's a how to and an all about and none of it is hard. So what are you waiting for?!

Your desk is not bad at all. I really like your glasses case, and that mustache tape. That baby card is just gorgeous. Happy crafting #1

Deb said...

I have rather a lot of layers myself this week, yours looks a lot tidier than mine I must say! So impressed you are getting on well with your calendar! It took some scouring to work out which month though, the umbrellas are slightly camouflaged, or maybe I need some superstrength glasses!

Looks like a nice happy desk to me. :) Happy WOYWW! Nan G #3

Ohhh Snap said...

I so need a glasses case! Lovely craftiness going on. BTW you can use that bubble wrap to the left to felt wool fibers into ... felt. All you need is some time, some wool, hot water and soap. It's also easier to do outside where spillage is not so problematic. I was so off kilter this week I didn't even have a purse project for my time away from home. #4

Robyn said...

Layers are all the rage!
Thanks for the snoop!
Blog hop with prizes posted tomorrow!

In other words, Layers and Layers of fun madness. Loving the mustache tape, not seen it yet. #17 wishing you a fun day. Always amazes me how we have these good sized desks and end up with a 8x8 spot to glue and assemble.

Bernice said...

Well - not being able to sleep sometimes has its benefits!! - although I'm sure I'll regret it when I have to get up in about 4 hours time!! I see a little label from a White Stuff purchase there - I know because I collect them - for the cute buttons of course - so that I can use them on my crafty projects!!

Maria said...

Loving your workdesk this morning, that mustache tape looks cool I want some...
Your desk actually looks busy this week love it, thanks for hosting this weekly blogpost it's much appreciated.....

Sharon Madson said...

Great work area! I like your sexy glass case! Like I said we crafters love containers, organizers, etc. LOL

RosA said...

There's still plenty of potential for more "desk layering" there. Just keep piling stuff on til it spills onto the floor :) like I do :)
Have a good week Julia!

Hi Julia,

Your desk looks very inviting to me! I wish I had a desk just like it -- especially that mustache tape!

Can you believe I actually joined in this week? And got here early too! I've miss you all.

Happy WOYWW

That mustache tape is very hip! I don't think I can have enough pairs of glasses--I need some new ones too! I love the overhead shot, I feel like I'm working right at your desk. Happy WOYWW! Sandy Leigh #33

You never know what other people will find interesting, that's part of the fun of snooping out all the woyww desks!

Your desk looks great that mustache tape looks like fun :) hugs Nikki 6

Patsy Paterno said...

What I like is the PUSH YOURSELF reminder on your Ipad! I had too many layers and NOTHING was of interest so I decided to take a picture after I pushed junk away and started drawing. Every Wednesday morning I think I should clean up my desk and I promptly forget about it till the next WOYWW!!!! patsy

Hammers said...

Morning Julia, love the angle this week. That Moustache tape is a must have! Love the teeny tags...no madness at all...has the button jar changed? Cx #42

Julie Ann Lee said...

So this week you're an archaeologist! Are there no end to your talents, Julia! Ah, now I see what moustache tape is! Love the baby card - very simple and elegant! And - wow - you know people who have babies! I just realized that I wouldn't know where to begin with a baby card! I'd better find out before one of my two makes me a granny! Can't see that coming too soon, but you never know! Julie Ann x

Julie Ann Lee said...

Oops! #45! forgot again, mmn, wonder why I don't know any YOUNG people! Julie Ann x

VonnyK said...

Aww I was hoping you would show a picture of you wearing the moustache tape, it's just not the same on a roll (he he). Love that gorgeous card. The bright green things under the ipad look really nice, love the colours. Also.. On your previous post you have a cute little book made from a 12 x 12 piece of paper. Is there any chance you could let me know where to find the instructions as it will be a great project for my little miss in the school holidays next week.
Have a great week.

Danie May said...

Loving the busy look of your desk today Julia. That mustache tape looks fabulous. Have a great week and Happy WOYWW!

Helen said...

I like the view from here! Though I really don't get this whole moustache thing.... but I do like the look of the latest calendar layout peak! Have a great day. Helen 22

Mrs.D said...

Morning Julia. ? Isn't it great to have a dedicated worktop., not the dinner table. Like the moustache tape and the buttonjar. Thanks for hosting WOYWW once again. Have a good day.



Eliza said...

Gidday from the land down under Julia gosh your desk is full of creative goodness and only one pair of scissors this week. LOL I was wondering at work, yes I am mad thinking about strange things whilst working and scissors was one of them. Don't ask me anymore about it ok. How many scissors you owned probably like me far to many. Have a great crafting week.

Hugs Eliza & Yoda 51

Lynda Beazley said...

A happy, busy desk this week! Lots of creativeness... I to need to make a baby card. Yours is lovely. Have a happy week

JoZart said...

Oooh! what a treat to share your desk this week after being AWOL! All the goodies and treasures and goings on to share and I'm glad I can manage to be part of it all again. Missed you all!
Someone has been to Tiger...to get that moustache tape. Oh, how I love that shop. It's a forever changing wonderland of treasure but why oh why isn't there one by me. My DDs little German town has one, DD in Brighton has one but none in my big home city of Liverpool.
love Jo x

Claire said...

great overhead shot! though why an ipad takes centre stage beat me... want to see your LO!!
happy WOYWW and have a fun week :)

sara j said...

I must say I do like the mustache tape. Also the clever birds eye view you have provided for us. I finally got a bit of time in the Fun Room tonight, but no pics and links for a while. I'm slammed at work plus have two trips in the next month - one very FUN to Art & Soul for five workshop in Portland OR and another back on the east coast for work. So I'm just popping in to say hi and bye - see you in about five to six weeks. Stay warm!
Hugs Sara

Lynn Holland said...

Nice glasses case. I'm desperate to get to the poundshop for some new ready specs as I've sat on my others, lost a pair and the glass has fell out of another pair

Ria Gall said...

Hi Julia
I have to say your desk looks very productive to me and I am sure there is lots of inspiration going on there. Loving the baby card very pretty
Have a great day today and a wonderful weekend

fairy thoughts said...

I think it actually looks quite organised .... That's a crafty euphuism for messy but I know what I'm doing.
Is that bubble wrap I see on the left, I wonder what you are going to do with that ..... Something arty with inks or a gelli plate maybe?
Have a great week

Kyla said...

I agree with Jo as I spied the Tiger 'tash tape (i love that shop....the only one I know of is in N. Finchley in that there Londinium). You have SO many projects on the go I can see why you needed the granny tote in your earlier post! :-)
Kyla #53

Annie said...

I spied your buttons too....not that they would ever get past me :-)
Love the desk and rather like the idea of doing excavations on crafting desks.

Sandy said...

Oh I have those tiny tags use them a lot they are very cute.. I see you have some tiny letter stamps I just brought some of those on holiday have not used them yet.. Button jar looks a bit emptier form this angle.. Love the moustache tape.. Cute bits hiding under the ipad..
Holidays last week so missed you all..
Sandy :)

Alison Wade said...

Happy WOYWW. I love a nice big pile of crafty stash and projects. Love the baby card (I am due to become a step-grandma at the grand old age of 42 in January, so our household is slowly becoming baby-crazy already!). Ali x #63

Such a fun looking desk this week! Loving that paper under your ipad. Gorgeous!!! Lots of interesting bits and pieces all around...makes me want to have a snoop around, lol!

Have a wonderful day!

Twiglet said...

Oh that Jan and her big words.. sounds rude to me! I could do with moustache tape but will make do with a wax strip! Have a great week - x Jo

Karen Ives said...

I'm all for layers!
Have a great day.
Karen #69

Helen said...

I noticed that your button jar is still overflowing Julia!!! You need to find a sorter outer crafter - Find the most organised crafting desk and then invite them round to do their button sorting thing!!! I am the type of sorter who takes forever to get round to it and then when I do sort enjoy the finding of forgotten stash that sends me off on another mess making frenzy!!!! Happy WOYWW to you from Helen 67 X

glitterandglue said...

A wonderfully busy desk this morning, Julia. Lots of different things going on - shows the creative mind! I see Helen says your button jar is still overflowing - I was thinking it wasn't as full, and obviously had been used this last week...
Have a great week, o great and esteemed hostess with the mostess!

Neil said...

Hi Julia,
Layers are good! As long as they don't get too high though. I've got that tape, funnily enough I used it yesterday in my journal.
Hope you have a good week.

john-w said...

Oh my, what a busy desk, Julia! Very productive though, so what does it matter - just so long as you can still find what you are looking for. Kind regards, John W #71.

Belinda Basson said...

No desk to share for me today...life got in the way! Just having a nose round though and if you could excavate your desk, my office desk would be an archaeological dig, there are so many layers!

misteejay said...

The button jar doesn't look quite so full when you look down on it like that LOL

Lovely baby girl card Julia.

Layers...I've certainly got layers on my work table - I think they appear by magic...

Gorgeous Baby card and I love that moustache tape, have a lovely week

Caro said...

I love the layers on layers on layers...it may look slightly chaotic but it is actually organised if you take it a layer at a time. The baby card is cute. Thanks for hosting our weekly snoop. Caro x #76

CraftygasheadZo said...

Well I'm loving the 'above' shot, your glasses case is rather pretty and so is the baby card. Lots of little things to see too. Take care lovely. Zo xx 78

Hello!, it's my first time here at WOYWW! Think I'm going to enjoy taking a peek at everyone's creative spaces!
See you again soon

When you're excavating those layers, do you wear kneepads?

O no! not crossed off the list again!!! lol

Happy WOYWW Julia - thanks for hosting ....creep, creep....

Goodmorning Julia - after being 'mia' for a long time, it's good to be back and join in the WOYWW group again. I love to find that your desk is still loaded with creative and colourful stuff. Keep on crafting, YAY! Love from Holland, Marit #79

BJ said...

Gosh #81 didn't realise I was SO laid back about entering these days, well at least I am sleeping. Loads of projects this week Julia hope I haven't overstepped the mark.

I'd say you are doing April and love the glasses case, could do with one of those myself. BJ#81

Happy WOYWW! Love the Baby card. xx Jan

Winnie said...

Lots of creative fun there today Julia! Your baby card is adorable! Love the mustache tape, how fun, have not seen packing tape like that one! I see lots of fun stamps too on your desk. Isn't funny how we all have portable technology on our desks now? Enjoy the day!Winnie#83

House of Bears said...

What are those strange bits of brown? Oh, that's the desk poking through! Tee hee

Neesie said...

So were you hanging from the chandelier to take that photo Julia?
Love your glasses case. I never seem to use a case but maybe that's why I keep loosing so many pairs!
The moustache tape looks such fun.
Is that something crawling out of your coffee cup???
Maybe it's my eye's...I really must find those glasses!

Happy WOYWW to you :D
Have fun ~ Neesie #86 and still going! xoxo

Maudieroff Roffey said...

Beautiful baby card Julia - I love its non-tweeness (that IS a word, I said so). I don't think I am going to be able to make the calendar workshop but we must try and get together soon!

Carole said...

I like your layers, feels familiar. I'm really getting in to this snooping. Makes me feel like I'm okay. When I saw your french press I just had to make myself one. Enjoy your day.

Lindsay Weirich said...

great desk! I have the tiny tag punch that goes with the stamps you have on the desk! Happy WOYWW! Lindsay #8

Dianne said...

Hello sweet Miss Julia, I love your mess, I don't know how to create without making one, such a pretty baby card, I too don't have any babies around, love them but none to play with, love your glass case, I actually had paper almost the same design. I fell in love with your autumn calendar it's gorgeous, the new one looks fab too, thanks for sharing your creative desk and for just being a Grand Lady, I have 2 days free to just snoop around blog land, can't wait, have a wonderful day..Dianne #94

Lynn McAuley said...

I'm going to have to keep a lookout for some of that fun packing tape! What a fun way to dress up your mailed boxes.

I am terrible about keeping up with my crafting glasses. I think my desk has at least two pair visible today. Truth be told I keep a basket with a dozen up above my desk. When the basket is empty, I go on a search around the house and gather them together again!

Love your WOYWWs! Thanks, Julia!

Cazzy said...

Hi Julia,

I am in a better mood this week but still busy as I am helping with trying to get donations for a fundraising auction.

Where did you get moustache packing tape for goodness sake?
I see a tablet which says Push Yourself, and I see stamps which always interest me, can't see what they are though!

Carol

Cazzy said...

I forgot too - I am #95, and really feeling it!

Glad I 'm not playing this week because I'm a day late just getting here. I have that exact same 1" circle punch. I'm always amazed at mass marketing.

I will try to connect my working place as well. Thank you for this great idea. Greetings from Geri
