What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 274

Oh, look..not very much!  I took this photo in a panic at about 7pm on Tuesday evening, and took another one about half an hour ago.  The light is the only change.  Even my glasses are still there...I'm typing this in something of a stupor of tiredness and short sightedness! I don't think much of this needs explaining, suffice to say that I've been playing around with some Christmas ideas, and am now planning to move on to some autumnal stuff.  Nothing like getting the seasons out of sync! My lovely bobbly pen is to hand, I'm still enjoying that. That roll of tape in front of the deckchair stand was free - someone had tried to force into a bowl shape - and the stall holder gave it to me because it wasn't going to sell.  Nice!  You can tell that I corralled the scissors and have managed with only two pairs so far...but don't hold your breath - it's only Wednesday!
Share your desk or workspace will ya?  How to and other explanations can be found via links at the top of this page.  It's easy, and it's fun, it's free and really, it's very friendly. So why wouldn't you....?

I am falling in love with that wobbly pen. I have many bowl shaped tape rolls like yours, its the humidity that does that to mine, the layers slide and slide and now I have cones of tapes, drives me up the wall

Busy! busy! You have that rare talent of making mess of a desk so interesting! Thanks for the party, Julia! :^) patsy

I have a stack of super thin red line tape s that are all stuck together. Way worse than a bowl! Crop may be in danger for me due to a birthday party I forgot about but trying to work it out. Frankly I am so sick of cleaning and decluttering at the moment I could use the break :)

I was about to show you a similar photo to last week, when , suddenly all these cards appeared ! WOYWW magic!

I hope you can overcome the stupor of tiredness soon :) Very tedious, being so tired, isn't it? But that's lovely light for 7pm. I love daylight saving here in summer (I would be in a minority, though), when we can have lovely light at 7pm and later :)
Have a good week.

The only thing I don't like about autumn is the early dark evenings - oh and the rain. let's hope we have a dry autumn.... love that bobbly pen - and I admit, I reject bowl shaped tape, but why? it works. so well done on grabbing a freebie.

Mrs.D said...

Morning Julia, thanks for forcing yourself to post and host when you are so tired, hope you feel brighter as the day progresses.
Tidy looking desk there with gold ribbon front left and the 'knife block' back right. Wouldn't want to get on the wrong side of you.
Have a good day

Morning julia
It looks very calm on your desk. ...maybe just the calm before the storm..... Have fun

Elizabeth said...

Morning Julia, your desk looks as inviting as ever. The view of your garden could be a tad distracting but, there again, it could also be a source of inspiration if you are planning autumn themed cards. I like the star bunting on the card that it propped up behind the misshapen roll of tape. Hope you get over your tiredness, take some rest, and have a great day. Hugs, Elizabeth x #26

Belinda Basson said...

Not participating this week, but come to snoop anyway! Its not Wednesday in my part of the world if I don't do this!

misteejay said...

Hope you get to put your feet up for a while.
I love the view of your garden - I think I need to move my craft table so that I can see out of the window.

Fiona@Staring at the Sea said...

Oh I do like that banner of primitive stars on the card. Lovely. I will soon have to turn my thoughts to seasonal crafting ready for next month's classes.

Hazel said...

Oh, it's really good to 'see' you again, Julia and all your familiar stuff! Glad to see that you've made a start on Christmas - Christmas first and autumn second is the right way in my book! I've come back to the fold after weeks away. Hazel, WOYWW, #34 x

Debs Willis said...

Only 2 pairs of scissors??? Slow week!
Love the fact that you can see the garden out of your window, must be easy to get distracted

Shaz in Oz.CalligraphyCards said...

Hullo there Julia ah scissors they are a puzzle aren't they?? where do they migrate to.. and smiled at your photo taking it sounded so like mine.
No desk change either.. but at least am doing something but it is tad frustrating when 24 hours pass and no work done there! jobs needed doing elsewhere!
happy WOYWW and thanks so very much for doing this each week, you are a blessing, Shaz in Oz.x #33

Sue said...

Just can't afford the postage for all the Christmas cards I'd like to send, so I am only sending to family and very close friends this year.

Always good to get a freebie:)

Well you have a lovely WOYWW.

Sharon Madson said...

Good morning! Did you miss me while I was gone? :) Such a pretty view you have, now wonder your desk looks like this! BTW, I wish you would come iron my ribbons! :) Happy WOYWW!

Angela Radford said...

Happy crafting, Angela x

Lunch Lady Jan said...

You'll be doing 'summer' next! Trust you to do things backward...once a rebel..... ;-)
See ya Friday.
Hugs, LLJ 24 xx

Cazzy said...

Those tape rolls just won't behave! As for scissors - all of mine are now corralled in the carousel, it is amazing, I even put them back when I am finished! I am pretty sure there is at least one more pair I haven't yet found on the desk though, or maybe they are on the floor on in the bits box!

Happy WOYWW, I did post after midnight but didn't get up early enough to be first!

Lynsey McGreavey said...

Hi Julia,

Busy desk - I am trying to think about Christmas, got cracking on some cards, but erm... still LOADS TO DO! Not enough hours in the day... Lyns x

Chrysalis said...

At least you can find your glasses, Julia! I've been going round in my prescription sunglasses cos I'd taken the others off in the garden (they slip off my head when bending), rested them on a plant and then couldn't remember where! Two days later, I've finally found them - the joys of getting old(er)! Have a great week xx

Arnoldo L. Romero, MLA said...

Your post sounds like a description of my blogging these days. LOL!

betsy (pharmgirl) said...

Love your card with the string of hearts! Wonderful desk Julia! That pink thing with the bumpy head looks fun too.

famfa said...

I have been away for so long I forgot what to do. Glad to see things haven't changed on your desk though, still the glasses there. Don't talk to me about scissors, they get taken by the borrowers all the time - what do they do with them all?

Sandy Leigh said...

I'm so curious about the card on your iPad stand and the banner on it, which looks like the Peruvian worry people. So cute! Have a good week! Sandy Leigh

Eliza said...

I doesn't matter if you get the creative seasons out of whack at least you are getting crafting done. Still love that deck chair for the display. Hope you have a productive week crafting.

Hugs Eliza & Yoda

Mariane said...

It is so great what you are showing, Julia - I been through similar things as well.. but - Tomorrow is another day, I use to tell myself. There will be happening new things.
I think Life is a wonderful adventure

Kind regards

Hi Julia, love the randomness on your desk. The tape fashioned into a bowl. Cracked me up. Cx #59

Laura said...

Happy WOYWW, lovely hostess! :-) Glad you've been having fun at your desk. I tiptoed into the Christmas season long enough to make a tag the other day, but I'm not quite in that mode yet. :-) Hope you're having a good day! ~ Laura #53

Sheri Whitfield said...

I always enjoy your lovely view out your windows. I have windows at my desk, but they're really too high to see much but sky and tree tops! :)

Kim said...

Great score on the tape!!! Always love "free". I hope you get rested...seems from now on the rest of the year is a blur!

Emma Made said...

Haha! Love the authenticity of this picture! x

sandysewin said...

Bowl shaped tape works just as well as flat roll, doesn't it? How nice to get a freebie.

Happy creating and happy woyww,

Sandy #21

Andrea said...

Hello Julia,

No matter the condition of your desk, it always looks inviting. I think it's the nice big window letting the sun in. Perfect, really.

I didn't participate this week because there wasn't much new to share. Drats.

Happy WOYWW,
Hugs,
Kay
