What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 261

 Edited....prolly way too late. I'm in Southern Spain and I can see the Linky from here!  re-posting it now.  Sorry, and thank you!

Now then gentle Deskers, this photo is to be made the most of.  It is unusual, from any angle.  That is - if you are a new Desker, you should not be fooled by it, if you are a pop in and out Desker, you will have a pleasant surprise and if you are a regular Desker, you'll know something is up.  Yep, this is a staged and scheduled post from me. For today, I am traversing the continent, seeking sun and sangria.

A clear and tidy desk.  You can see the Giraffe Ribbon Storage that I've been road testing - more on that to come.  Can you just see the iPad at rest, keeping me company in my tidying tasks, and a set of Hero Arts stamps that I thought I might use...and then changed my mind because my desk was already tidy! Amuse me do, whilst I work hard in a bar trying to piggy back other people's WiFi.  Show us your workdesk will ya, and marvel that we're entering a sixth year of this blog hop!

Robyn Oliver said...

Hi Julia,well the clean and tidy desk is a sigh of relief after your busy weeks getting ready for the Crop and organizing everyone else's ATCs (mine included). It's a real pleasure when you return home from your holiday and you'll be itching to start creating again...all freshly revived and full of ideas. Have a wonderful break, cheers Robyn

I'm about #61 and thinking how comforting it is to know that while our honourable leader goes off on a well deserved holiday, the party continues in her absence!
I hope that Mr Dunnit doesn't mind having Mr Linky sunbathing next to him!?!?!

You'll be motivated to craft once you've been away, and should be lovely to be greeted with the space to start a new.I had a great time receiving mail. It's only the second time I attempted atc's...I'll definitely do them different next time. Enjoy your journey to
Sangriaville... it sounds tropical.

Hi Julia, I know you are on holiday but thought I'd remind you that WOYWW #262 is due and that nothing has happened to you for it to not be up by 9.02pm UK time on a Wednesday. Hopefully its the sangria that has gotten to your day. Last week it was Mr Linky that got to #261.
