What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 244

If mess makes your teeth itch - look away fast!
Oh my.  I thought that I was a bit pushed for crafting time this week.....and I was certainly too pushed to clear up, apparently.

The lovely bright Valentines papers at left are from my sister's digital website, Luscious Life Studios...I've done some LOs and cards, will show 'em soon.  The alpha stickers are slung there because they are slung there.  I've no idea.  There's even a receipt from Tesco supermarket promising me some pence off my next shop.  Which will not come to pass if the receipt stays on the desk.  The plastic bag is full of card kits for my first workshop of the year on Thursday and the yellow basket is one of four filled with the 'ingredients' for the cards.  So my life...a clear up is in order..and strangely, because I'm at the end of 'making do' in this mess, I'm in the mood to do it!
Share with us do - what are you up to on your workspace this Wednesday?  Put WOYWW in your post title, link your post here and we'll trot round for a visit. If you'd like to take part and can't fathom how, please click on the links at the top of the page.  Don't be scared.  It's easy and we're friendly.

Drat! Elizabeth and Bleubeard have done it again! I am off to sleep now and will comment properly later this morning. xx Maggie #2 (again)

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

I can't believe I'm number one again this week. I must really be here at the right time.

You don't have a lot of time to spend on the internet today if you are planning to teach a workshop on Thursday. I can't fathom that you could be that completely prepared, yet spend an entire day on the interweb.

I adore those Valentine digis. Yep, I'm a true romantic at heart. Happy WoYWW from #1.

Create With Joy said...

What pretty Valentine's papers! There is love on my blog today too, and I'm sure we'll be seeing lots of love-inspired desks this week!

Happy WOYWW to you!

Mr Linky tells fibs. He said I was no1 last week and then put me down to second. This week, he said I was second and then put me down to third place. Never mind, I still enjoyed nosing around your desk, Julia. Hope you remember your money off voucher. I never do. Hope your workshops go well. xx Maggie #3

fairy thoughts said...

Hi julia it might be a mess but you have lots of ticks on your list so you must be accomplishing something.

Eliza said...

Julia your desk looks productive, nothing wrong with that. I can't see any dust bunnies on there so you are safe LOL.

Have a great week.

Sorry. #14

Patsy Paterno said...

Couldn't resist a zoom in on your notebook with a list and checkmarks, but I couldn't read it. True confession time! If I was allergic to messes I wouldn't ever enter my craft room, much less look at my desk!!!! Happy WOYWW! patsy

Jackie said...

Mess call that mess!!!!! It's got a few bits on still space to fill!!! Your list has a lot of ticks on so that must be good!
Rather bright and early this morning as the wind is howling outside and woke me!

Hi Julia, the cleaning bug must be in the air...I did it. Busy lady you are - running workshops, lots of prep work but in the end it's just great to be sharing with others who have the same passion - have fun. RobynO #16

Sandy Leigh said...

Julia I have the urge to clean too! And I actually did some crafting and cleaning today...a miracle! Mainly it was because I was snowed in there. Yours is much more impressive as I have yet to get the love on my desk. Happy WOYWW! Sandy Leigh #18

Mary said...

Ha...I didn't turn away. As a matter of fact I enlarged the photo. I wanted to see every wonderful piece of treasure. Love the papers. Can't wait to see the finished project. Have a wonderful week. Hugs from the other side of the pond....

I am working on getting everything off the floor and file it or box and label it!!!

Your desk looks like my desk minus the cat. lol I work myself into a 6 by 6 inch space in a 12 x 15 room. Crazy. :-) April #24

Krisha said...

I think Bluebeard keeps watch on the PC for Elizabeth. Two weeks in a row for them to be in the #1 spot. LOL Maybe the snow they are having is giving them cabin fever.

So organized this week Miss Julia! Always a good feeling to be ready to go on classes.
Have a great week

Sharon Madson said...

Hi Julia! Well, I will have to check out your sister's website because that is pretty paper. :)
Thanks for another Blog hopping Wednesday! So fun!

Sharon Madson said...

I did it again! I am 27, well number 27. Not age 27 LOL

peggy apl said...

my desk is more of a mess than your yours, so i definitely don't need to look away! i like the valentine papers!

Shaz in Oz.CalligraphyCards said...

ah Julia, I really love the digi paper what clever sister, well done you! she did our badges too!

Especially like the one with circled hearts eye-catchingly beautiful suitable for any sort of card..

Mm me thinks you are more organised than you say.. with sets bagged up for classes and container with items for cards :D Happy WOYWW, Shaz in Oz.x #31

Sandy said...

You are in a mess but it sounds like its an organised one with lots accomplished.
Sandy :)

Neil said...

Good morning.
Looks like a fair bit of organised chaos there. I love the aplha stickers, I picked them up the other morning too. Hope you have a great week.
Neil #37

Hammers said...

I do love a messy desk! Mine is organised chaos this week (or so I am telling myself!) love the v-Day papers..so after this I'm off for a nose at your sisters site :) Cx #38

Tertia said...

My mess is trying to take over my whole life! I need to clean too - very boring. Love your mess though, it all still seems very organised.
Happy WOYWW!
Tertia #19

VonnyK said...

If you're still in the mood to tidy up can you come and do mine. It's so bad I don't know where to start! I love the Valentine paper. Your sisters site sounds interesting, might have to have a look see.
Have a great week,
Von #30

Nikki C said...

Well my desk compared to yours looks naked by the time woyww rolled around it was messy for a while but no more sweet papers you have there hugs Nikki 29

Helen said...

A busy desk means you've been having fun! Hope the workshops go well. Those stickers look very useful, hope you find the reason they were there soon! Helen 7

Shaz Brooks said...

Morning Julia- just home from work, having a Sausage & egg McMuffin brekkie and decaff before bed, lol. You know how you get a fancy for something? I've been wanting McMuffins since 3 o'clock! Have a great week, Hugs Shaz #42

Ann B said...

Morning Julia. Your desk may be a little messy but you are well organised and ready for Thursday. Good luck with the workshop.
Don't talk to me about Tesco 'money off your next shop' vouchers. I was told the other week I had 'saved' almost £5 when actually my bill was £5 dearer than it would have been if I shopped elsewhere, talk about weasel words.
Happy Wednesday.

Carole Z said...

I'm going to have to miss this week - you think your desk is a mess, you should see mine! Hope the workshops go well and Happy WOYWW all! Carole Z X

Annie said...

Oh how I wish I was in the mood to be creative or even just to tidy up :-)
I'm here in body [a full up with a head cold sort of bodyagain!] but the head it definately elsewhere [it's full of b*** estate agents and solicitors and desp trying to get things sorted!].
Hugs,

Alison Wade said...

Happy WOYWW. Loving that Valentine paper. Will go and have a look at your sister's site - but not purchase anything yet, as I made a pledge this morning to not spend any more on my credit card until it is paid off!! I keep forgetting to use the Tesco vouchers and then they go out of date! Ali x #47

misteejay said...

Wow...quite an organised mess with your workshop prep and checklist. Have a wonderful Wednesday.

Twiglet said...

A very well ordered mess methinks! x Jo

Claire said...

Suddenly remembered I hadn't left YOU a comment, dear St Julia :)
Lovely to catch up with you again - it's been a while!
no. 34

sara j said...

Howdy-
Just read your post from yesterday too and have to say I was glad that other people were surprised about your name (hmmm, this might be getting old for you now - sorry). At any rate, I have to say your story yesterday was good to hear. More of joke than an evasion...ah well.
Valentines. Hmmm. Maybe I should think about those. Perhaps tomorrow. Yeah. Right.
Have a good week Julia.
Sara j #50

JoZart said...

It looks and sounds like you are raring to go and it should be a great workshop. Have fun. The mess is what we are about and we couldn't enjoy Wednesdays without one!
love Jo x

Erika Nittel-Traser said...

Your desk is looking so full of creativity, dear Julia! Love these Color combination in wonderful red and your yellow tools :)
Will come back later and share my desk :)
Have a very fine time and be greeted from
Erika

lisa said...

Looks fine to me, Julia, don't stress, although I think we all reach that stage when we just have to tidy...it happened to me yesterday when I'd disappeared under valentine's papers and had had enough!!
I like those alpha stickers, just the right size for my project life!!
Hugs Lisax #54

Sue said...

Hang on one second while I scratch my teeth:) LOL

Loving the papers, so off to check out your sisters site.

Hope you have a fab day.

Lunch Lady Jan said...

Good to see ya and shoot the breeze :-)
Hugs, LLJ 33 xx

Karen Ives said...

Oh yes those Tesco tickets are all over my house and I never remember to use them! Hope you find time to craft this week.

Lynn Holland said...

Nearly forgot to link up I was that busy cleaning haha

sandra de said...

Very pretty papers and lots of other very organised stuff on your desk i.e. a list, ziplock bag and little baskets. I cope so much better if it I pretend to be organised.
Sandra @ 59

Michelle said...

I think your craft desk looks brilliant. I'm always too pushed to tidy mine lol - Michelle x

Elaine Hughes said...

This week mine is also covered in a load of stuff I haven't been bothered to put away yet! I'll have to though, if I want to get anything done...

Re. the Tesco receipt - a similar thing happens in this house with Sainsburys Nectar vouchers. I'm not the guilty party though, and I'm not quite sure why He Who Shall Not Be Named doesn't just put them in his wallet while we're at the checkout. Haha!

Thanks for hosting

BJ said...

Gosh can you see how laid back I am getting to the WOYWW thing. Get up, craft and then write blog post. Wednesday is now my rest and craft day, how appropriate.

I did avert my eyes for a while to your desk but am still fascinated as to how you go about with your workshops (I need guidance) and the little basket is not unlike the Tim Holtz prep for such occasions (slightly large scale for him though methinks).

BJ a rather laid back #72

Glenda Brooks said...

Just running through this morning on my way to the list of blogs that I can snoop around today! Love your desk; those Valentine papers are making me want to play with some!

Brenda B said...

Mess, really? Where? I think I've been so blinded by socks I can't see anything else! Or maybe that's just the "white out" outside that's blinding me!

Hugs

S said...

Not so messy compared to mine. But it serves as a good reminder that I had better get busy on Valentines Day too. Have a great week!

Liz B said...

Happy Wednesday! Good luck with all of your Valentines work!

Lindart said...

I see lots of hearts! Haven't even thought about Valentines Day yet! I do know that I have a heart shaped basket that I am going to fill up for hubby for VD! And make him a card. Nice messy desk today!

It's a busy desk this week xx Jan

Gita said...

Love all the Valentine paper -- looks so pretty. :-)

Fiona@Staring at the Sea said...

Messy? It doesn't look too bad to me. I'm glad you enjoyed my numbers post. They are fun to do....when I remember to jot things down through the month!

famfa said...

i am intrigued as to how you got that shot of your desk. did you just hold your camera over the desk or were you on top of something leaning over? lovely colourful valentines papers.

Messy desk...busy crafter. I'm so grateful for electricity,considering there are thousands dealing with no power here in PA. I'm just happy I got to post on this fun event. Carole #76

Lots of messy goodness on your desk. Wish I lived close enough to attend one of your workshops as I bet they are loads of fun!

Pat Langley said...

Sometimes Wednesday just slips right by, especially if I have been gone all day on Tues. Wed. is then catch up day. So it was this week. I might still have time to post! Your desk is a mess; a good mess!

sandysewin said...

Such pretty Valentine's papers. Have a great time teaching your class. I hate the prep, but always enjoy the class time.

Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier and for the nice comments.

Happy Woyww,

I can so relate to this. What I like best are all those RED TICKS on your notepad. My kinda gal!!

Cor Julia, your desk is as messy as mine this week lol! I've only just realised it's Wednesday so I'm really late posting this time, but better late than never, I suppose.

April Story said...

Julia - you asked me about getting ink for my manual typewriter. I found it on Amazon. I just got the numbers from my typewriter and looked it up on Amazon. April #24

Stacy Sheldon said...

you know, I have never done this before but, I get a kick out of your blog when I remember to look so, I actually made it in here on a Wednesday and upstairs on a Wednesday ( it's almost a Christmas Miracle haha) :)

Thanks for doing this!

Dawn's Stamping Garden said...

Julia -- your desk is not messy...looks like you've just been busy! Slinging items is what happens when you are too preoccupied with creating to put it away properly. My workdesk gets slung on over and over! Have a wonderful week!
Dawn #103

Neet said...

Wit is the wee small hours of Thursday here but you should be raring to go with that workshop. Good Luck!
Setting off for home later today. Maybe that is why I cannot sleep.
You take care
Hugs, Neet xx 22

Shoshi said...

Thanks for your visit, Julia, and your encouraging remarks!! Yes, art is very forgiving when neglected, and I am trying to encourage the yearning and clamp down on the guilt!! On the rare occasions when I get to spend time in there, it feels like the most delicious illicit pleasure and as you say, the most therapeutic thing.

Have a great week.
Shoshi

Laura said...

Dear Julia, Thanks for popping over to visit me! I linked up yesterday, but didn't visit anyone yet, so I'll be a Thursday visitor this week. :) Best of luck with today's workshop. The Valentine papers look very cheerful. I think we need the burst of color at this point in the winter. Happy week! ~ Laura the Bookworm #95

Monica Smith said...

This post showed up today on Bloglovin. It is below freezing here, a place where at this time of the year it is usually in the upper 60s (F)I am so fed up with the cold. I have not posted this week as everything to do with the web is competing with the US postal service, that means SLOW. Cleaning out everything from before and after Christmas. See ya next week.
Monica numberless!!!

Caro said...

Hope the workshop went well today! Sorry I am a day late, but I have to say that the mess on your desk didn't make me itch...it made me smile! It is good to be back. Thanks for hosting as ever. Caro xx
