What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 273

WOYWW? What?  Check out this page and this page and they will, I hope, reveal almost as much as this picture:-
Coo - shaky arm photography, sorry!  I'm not you note, apologetic about the mess, although I do acknowledge that it did get very messy.  This is what happens when I sit down to make Christmas cards without the least idea of what I want to make and what supplies to use.  It's OK, I've cleared it up this morning. So I can start again.  My scissors pot was empty, which means I've buried about 5 pairs.  And I was wearing a pair of glasses when I took this photo and oh look - there's two pairs on the desk already. Wow!
I hope you like my new pen with the bobbles on top...I do.  It wobbles and clicks as I write,  and I feel, rather reflects the way my mind is working! Trusty iPad abandoned on top of notepad because the iPad stand had a card on it - which had wet glitter on it and - you get it...
So, now you've stared in horror, show us yours.  Perleeeeeeeeease.
Put WOYWW in your post title, make the post relevant to the photo of your workdesk/space and let us in to visit.  Marvellous!

ok that would drive me crazy having so much stuff and no space to work in. Love the new bobbly pen, now I've got an insight to how your head bobbles and works lol

Helen said...

Wow, that's quite a busy desk... I hope you are doing Christmas cards for workshops not for general consumption, or that would be far too forward thinking!

Jackie said...

Good morning Julia, hope your all well now! Well that's a bit of a mess for you! However shows you have been busy crafting and that's GOOD.....This is what happens when we don't plan and just go with the flow.... Love that you have lots of rubber stamps all over your desk :)

Hi Julia feel quite a t home at your desk..
yes, chaos rules here too when comes to crafty space!!
... or almost anywhere else come to think of it :D and am back after two weeks away no late note either.. ... now you have me wondering what happened to that card with wet glitter on it.. I trust it is was on top of iPad since dried, rather than under iPad. :D
happy WOYWW Shaz in Oz.x #10 I think

LOL! You always make me smile with your WOYWW posts. Getting the scoop on what is one your desk, WHY it's there, and what it all means in terms of thought process is interesting. I DO like your bobble-headed pen but I fear the clicking of the bobble would make me crazy. Reminds me of those things called Clackers - where they the rage here? God the clacking during school breaks drove me mental!

:)

Happy WOYWW

See, that's what you get for starting on Christmas already. You would be nice and tidy if you were like me and leave Christmas to the last minute. Then you have the panic mess to end all messes.
That pen caught my eye straight away. It's brilliant, cool, funky and anything else I can think of, just luv it.
Have a great wobbly, clicky week.

Krisha said...

Well, I see you made your desk right comfy for me, even two pairs of glasses, thank you for that.

Why do scissors always burry themselves so deep? And is one the leader and the rest just follow????

Have a great week
Krisha........can't believe I mad it under 50 this week.....woot! woot!

Mrs.D said...

That's not a mess, that's quite tidy.

Hi julia
Happy Wednesday .... Looks like you have been having a lovely play. Interesting that you say you have your glasses on as I can see at least 2 pairs on your desk... I hate the whole swapping to see thing and am currently on the train with my sunglasses on my head and my reading glasses on the end of my nose .... So I can look over the top and still see the rest of the world lol

misteejay said...

Lots going on there Julia. Seems like you really went to town with the crafting.
Have a good week.

Mary said...

Ok, I'm almost feeling guilty. Part of my desk top is visible. Trust me, by the time my cards are made, my desk will look like your twin. Well, I don't have a cute little bobble pen and if I misplace my glasses I need help finding them. Other than that...could be twins. Have a most crafty week. Off I go to finish and then clean up so I can make another mess! Hugs!

Diana Taylor said...

Well, that's certainly the desk of a productive worker - I hope you managed to make loads of Christmas cards. I love the pen although don't the clicks and wobbles get to you after a while and put you off what you want to write?!
Hope you have a great week,
Diana #27

Sue said...

I love the bobble thingy on your pencil:)

Looks like you may just have to find your scissors and get them back in the pot:)

Happy WOYWW

Robyn Oliver said...

Love your crazy busy messy desk Julia...seems like a few people are making Christmas cards this week...have fun and Happy WOYWW, Cheers RobynO#24

Anne said...

Morning Julia. Nothing wrong with a bit of mess!!! Mine looked similar if not worse at weekend. My granddaughters arrived when I was in full flow with guinea pigs ( see post) and chaos ensued! Little fingers here there and everywhere!!! :-) By way hope you heaps better now!!! Anne x #28

Twiglet said...

My desk is nice and tidy today - just full of dumfing lovliness! Glad to see you are busy and getting down and dirty. I am posting an Annie update today as she is still broadbandless and missing you all! x Jo

Diane Baker-Williams said...

This is how I work! Get lots of stuff out, creative as I grab from the pile, using only a small portion of what I pulled. I laughed about the glasses as i am blind as a bat without mine, they don't leave my face unless it it to sleep or bathe. Hoping to see some of those Christmas cards next week!

Francesca said...

Your desk is normal for me, then I get to the point that I need to cklear up. Not there yet, ha ha. Fracnesca #32

Angela Radford said...

WoW! Julia, what have you been up to, mind I don't blame you for leaving it and coming back later you must be exhausted, going on all the stuff on your desk.
Have a great week and happy crafting, Angela x 34

Winnie said...

Your desk is a busy one! I had to laugh at all the scissors becoming buried, I have done that often as well. I lose tape runners often in the "fun"! Have a fabulous week! I am excited as it is a three day weekend coming up here, I cannot wait!! Winnie#35

pearshapedcrafting said...

Now that's what I call busy - lots of evidence of the fun you are having - love the wobbly pen too! Chrisx 36

CraftygasheadZo said...

Love that you have multiples of things so that they can be buried and you don't worry. I'd worry if I lost my glasses as only pair I own!! I haven't started my Christmas cards yet. Keep meaning to but just not found inspiration. Take care lovely. Zo xx

Ohhh Snap said...

I love that your camera has a built-in glasses finding feature lol. Looks like you've been busy and having lots of fun : D. #38

Mariane said...

I have notice the older I get the more the photos show up shaken, I don't understand though ;) - Wow .. great desk for sure, I was wondering how the two glasses could be on same place? .. Lovely things are going on, I can tell.
Happy WOYWW

Kind regards
Mariane

OK, I have to have a clear space to work in or it drives my crazy. My desk this morning is struggling to have a clear spot and I'm going to clear it away before I start something else! Have a great rest of the week!

jan spencer said...

Hi Julia, happy WOYWW, I love the bobble pen and it sounds a good idea having multiple pairs of glasses, I've just started wearing them for reading and keep losing them among the papers

Elizabeth said...

Love your busy desk, Julia, especially all those little wood-mounted stamps you've got out. It looks like you've more pairs of glasses than Elton John and Tim Wonnacott combined :) Like the mauve frames. And the wobble pen is fabulous! Hope you have a great week. Hugs, Elizabeth x #46

Helen Allen said...

I have ended up on my age this week - spooky! My desk looks like yours Julia and I am starting to think about Christmas too……more spookiness ;-) Haven't played in a while so looking forward to catching up with everyone Happy WOYWW from Helen 52

Neesie said...

What a giggle Julia,
I got swept along with all of your enthusiasm... busy busy little elf!
We're having Christmas designs over here, but thankfully not resorted to playing the music just yet.
Now here's a frightening piece of info... there's only 119days, 10 hours, 26 mins and 30 secs... sorry 29, 28, 27 26... oh bother!
Humbug!
xoxo

Nan G said...

I know this feeling well. And somewhere in the midst of cleaning a spark of an idea comes and you're off running. Atleast for me it happens that way. It's good to be back. I've missed visiting you. Hugs and Happy WOYWW! Nan G #53

Shaz Brooks said...

Hi Julia, wow, that picture made me laugh!. Messiest desk i've seen from you yet. Mind you, Christmas does cause chaos everywhere, lol. Lovely to see you Saturday, stay well, Huge Hugs, Shaz XXX

Sandy Leigh said...

I love this, I feel like I'm witnessing mad creative genius at work here! Just remember, if you have glitter on your hands, don't comb the cat. Trust me on that one. Are all your stamps wood mounted? Do you use clear? I don't think I've ever seen your whole stamp extravaganza! Hugs dear Julia. --Sandy Leigh

Hammers said...

Love that bobbly pen..I am envious of the chaos on your desk, as it means you have been playing with stuff..I am itching for the weekend :)Cx #55

505whimsygirl said...

Good morning Julia. There is quite a lot on your desk this morning. When I'm done making my photo cards then I'll be getting out my stamps to make some homemade cards. I think an iPad is my next big purchase so I'm excited to see that it can be used as a stand for cards also.

Happy WOYWW
Hugs. Kay

sandysewin said...

That pen is CUTE, but it would definitely drive me crazy to write with it. Plus, my writing is bad enough already.

I had to laugh at your spotting the scissors in the photo but not on the desk. That happens to all of us, I wonder why?

Happy creating and happy woyww!

Sandy Trefger said...

Oh I love that pen! I want/need one! Must go shopping! LOL. Messy means you've been busy. :) Happy WOYWW

Carole said...

Annie Claxton said...

Shoshi said...

Been out all day and now we're home, suddenly realised I'd never signed up for WOYWW despite having done a blog post! Duh. What a glorious mess on your desk this week Julia, lol! As you will see, I can't get anywhere near my desk this week but hopefully will be able to over the next day or two.

Happy WOYWW,
Shoshi #66

Helen Campbell said...

I love your "cluttered" desk. It means you have been productive! Cheers! Helen #11

Robin Spitzer said...

It's amazing how that happens.....it's the creative process I think...by the time you come up for air, and actually see whats around you....it's always shocking, but ALWAYS PRODUCTIVE!

Have a wonderful week!

Hugs - Robin - State of Serenity - #73

Laura (Bookworm) said...

Ha! I linked up this morning and then spent the day reading a book. Just realizing I never commented here (or did any visiting, which I will do tomorrow.) Hope your WOYWW was a happy one. I only see one pair of scissors (but one is all you need at any given time.) :-)

glitterandglue said...

Hi Julia. Couldn't comment yesterday - despite NanG linking up for me, as I was "out of the country" - visiting England!!!
Long but good day - and I return to find this amazing hub of activity called your desk...Just LOVE that pen - might even need it today so the bobbing and clicking can keep me awake!!
Take care. God bless.
Margaret #19 I think, but haven't properly looked yet!

Kim said...

Not staring in horror: that was pretty much me as well; I have that snowman stamp, and can't wait to see what you do with it: the store sample was great (why I bought it), and I can't remember what it was, and my ideas have fallen flat...

Cazzy said...

Whoops, sneaking in late this week! I have an ultra messy desk too.

okienurse said...

great looking desk and workspace! I always am looking for a pair of glasses and they have either congregated on my desk or on the bedside table...never enough reader I tell you. Have fun making those Christmas Cards. Vickie #75

Neet said...

Could have sworn I had been on here this week. I remember thinking the wobbly pen was similar to mine but mine has a dolls head as the wobbly bit.
Cannot believe you utter that "C" word already.
Hugs, Neet xx
