What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 259

Well Deskers, it's only a week till our fifth anniversary.  You can read all about the WOYWW what HERE and all about our anniversary ATC swap intentions HERE.  Come on and join in, there's no qualifying period, just play the game!
Meanwhile, here's the desk..it's had a bit of action, at last and will be cleared and tidy. Ummm..any day now.




















Taken at about 5.15pm on Tuesday evening, so despite the cloudy grey day interspersed with torrential showers, it's looking pretty good for natural light!  I'm working on a bunch of cards for a workshop on another theme - 'Doilies' this time.  I'm slow..but really quite enjoyed the hour I've managed so far.  Just as well, I want to deliver them before Shopkeeper Gal starts her workshop on Thursday morning.  We'll see.
It's the WOYWW Crop this saturday.  If you have a last minute change and would like to join us, just let me know!  Please though...I'm more than a bit busy right now, so give me a day to respond..I'm not getting to the old computer much!
Meanwhile, jin in with us will ya - show s your workdesk/space and what creativity lies upon it.  We'd like that very much. Thanks!

I would love to be able to say, "I've changed my mind and will be joining you for the crop!" But that will require a WHOLE lot of money!!! Wouldn't that be grand if we could all meet up? :^) patsy

Helen said...

wow that was a spurt of deskers waiting to link - I was going to be 3 then wham, refresh and 8! anyhow, love the desk today and the open door into the garden, how fabulous it's been the last few days... See you Friday!

scrappystickyinkymess said...

I really do think you need to stage more scenes out the window - who can forget Mr Dunnit in a heap under the long term ladder? :). Just realized I need to finish backing a few ATCs for the swap but looking forward to it.

Other than your desk, your back yard looks like it's getting a makeover. But I love the view from this angle. So much green. Must be from all the rain you are getting. We're in one of those drought danger areas in the states. At least there are no wildfires in this area yet.

Have fun at the crop, and be sure to take lots of photos.

Jackie said...

Sounds like your having fun getting ready for the next workshop ...... Enjoy the crop on Saturday ... I wish I lived closer and could go :(

Kyla said...

Isn't it lovely having the light evenings again, it makes such a difference. I too miss the tales of the ladder in the back garden from earlier posts (was it 2 years ago or even more?!) .

Really looking forward to Saturday am slowly going through my stash for the giveaway table!

Sue from Oregon said...

Hey Julia...had to pop in and join in this week. Life has gotten crazy but had to find the time to play with you all this week! Had to sympathize with your previous post about getting the wrong creation ready for your class...I dream of doing that too...! Good to catch up!

Eliza said...

Hi Julia,

I am sure the crop will be a bit hit, I am sorry I cant make it only wish I could, just a tad too far and cold to swim. Say hi to everyone for me will you. As for your desk, do find time for it, it is good for the soul to create.

Happy WOYWW

Weather is gorgeous here in Lincoln and it's a lovely sunny morning.
The desk looks busy today and it sounds as though you are too.
Happy crafting, Angela x

misteejay said...

Great view of the garden Julia.

I keep thinking of moving my work table to face the window but then it would block the radiator during the chillier times so it ends up staying where it is.

Have a great time at the crop.

CraftygasheadZo said...

Can't wait to see you on Saturday, I shall be accompanied by Lisa who came with me the first time. Though I will be using the wheelchair so will be asking for some help as Lisa has a bad back and can't push me. Ah yes I remember the garden scene of Mr D under the ladder!! Take care lovely. Zo xx

Spyder said...

The 5th anniversary all ready!!? and the first one I'll have to miss I guess, just miss you guys so much!! But what with my new adventure with the dog walking and pet sitting, up early, bed later...no staying up all night blogging! There's no time to come and comment, and I feel that's a bit mean...anyway.... I think my craft room is the same as it was on my last woyww... only worse! so no change there!

((Lyn)))

Carole said...

Well everyone's buzzing and teasing The crop will be a blast. I can't wait to hear all about it. I've never been to one but I'd love to use up scraps and share dies to cut.
Sending cheers and congratulations Julia, for hosting this fun adventure 5 years ago. As for the time I've participated I've seen it all...and it's good. These peeps are generous in sharing the dirty side of their fun. Be well Carole #52

Kim said...

Lookit all the tape rolls!!! LOL! I hope you all have a fantastic Crop this weekend..so wish I could join in.

Krisha said...

What a glorious view! I am feeling the urge to pull Betsy from the closet and face the window, but that means a complete FULL room transformation.......and takes care of that urge....LOL

I get so envious of your classes and crops, there just isn't much in this area anymore. So have an extra dose of fun for me Saturday!

Kelly said...

I wish I could join you all for crop. What a lovely way to spend time. Hoping those attending share lots of pictures on their sites.

You are always busy, Ms Julia. The creative way, I guess. Creative Blessings! Kelly #70

Stacy Sheldon said...

The view out your window is so fabulous in this shot. its really stealing the show away from your desk :)

JoZart said...

I do wish I could be there for the crop but life gets in the way of fun now and then... and it has NOW. Hope it all goes well and I look forward to seeing all about it.
I'll be out of action due to house renovations so, sorry, I cannot participate in the swap. WOYWW has brought so much fun and friendship into my life and long may it continue and hopefully I'll get back to full connection.
Lots of love Jo x

sandysewin said...

I'm so jealous of you all getting to get together. I'm sure it will be a wonderfully fun time and I'm looking forward to lots of pics. :-)

Happy Woyww,

Roll on Saturday !! Looking forward to meeting you at long last ! Ali x #6

Shoshi said...

Thanks for your lovely enthusiastic comment on my blog, Julia, and I'm glad you like what's going on in my creative world at the moment. I am pleased with how the pages of the book are coming together, with the multiple borders - it's working better than I'd hoped! The knitting is slowly progressing. It's 4-ply, so pretty fine, with 10 rows per inch, but I might get it finished by next winter! Following the 2 graphs isn't too much of a problem really, as long as I remember to cross off each row twice, as I do it.

Shoshi #37

Sharon Madson said...

Oh, Julia, I still love your view out your windows from your space! I wonder would I ever get anything done. I have thought about moving my space upstairs to have a window, but it is too much trouble and not as much space! And I am jealous too, that you all can get together over there! :) Happy WOYWW!

irene said...

I love seeing a bit of the green of your backyard along with your desk. Sounds like are one busy person. Thank you for hosting this welcoming blog. Folks here have been great!

Robyn Oliver said...

Hi Julia, just a quick hello and happy WOYWW. Also thanks for visiting my desk, do know how very busy you are and hope that you have a fantastic Crop this weekend..relax and enjoy. Great desk view Cheers RobynO#19

Sandy Trefger said...

Lots of stuff there on your desk this week! Happy WOYWW! ~Sandy in Texas

Neet said...

Hope you are bang on target with your prep for the crop, am sure you are, sending my love to all who attend. Just wish I could be there with you but it is a bit far for a one day trip.
Have a brill time all of you and remember - lots of piccies please.
Hugs, Neet xx

Amy E said...

Wow Julia, your desk looks sufficiently used this week!! I can't wait to see everyone's posts with their ATCs soon!! And I SO WISH I could be at the crop...if I didn't live half a world away!

Glad you liked the idea of the food cards for parties! I've been doing that for years. Personally, I can't stand seafood, so if I don't know what is in something that looks like a mish-mash of food, I won't take the chance!! We're alreadt starting to work on food card ideas for the buffet at my daughter's wedding...something elegant and white I think!

Happy WOYWW (a day late!)
