What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 276

I have been playing chase the day, hour, minute and so did not achieve much desking over the last week.  I have a delivery scheduled for today that requires me to be at home for three hours - three hours!  Guess what I'll probably do!  And if the delivery comes in the first few minutes of this given window...I won't tell.  I know you won't either, so I'm good for the afternoon off, huh!  And that's just as well, because really, I have a problem with my desk....
There's practically nothing on it!  I tidied up whilst Mr D was in here using the PC on Sunday evening and haven't quite made it back there...that will change today.  Because I have at least to kit tomorrow's workshop!  Ignore the garden waste bin...I used it a lot at the weekend and now need it to be in my line of vision to remind me to put it out for the Garden Waste Operatives to empty it. My iPad is lying down because the deckchair is currently taken by Quietfire stamps, waiting for my attention.  Oh the anticipation!  So that's it from me - over to you for much more interesting news on the Desk Front.  
Please put WOYWW in your post title and make the post WOYWW relevant...not least because if your post is hard to find or isn't relevant, no-one will bother to comment.  Or I might remove the link...depends on the frustration level......

Ah, the anticipation of good things to come and Quiet fire stamps are very good things indeed.

Bridget Larsen said...

Dont you hate having to wait for a delivery? Cant they pin themselves down to a smaller window? I guess thats business-you think they are going to have a lunch break inbetween huh!
Wow that is a tidy desk indeed but how can you prep a workshop kit in that small space?

Morning, Julia - don't worry - your secret is safe with me! I promise I won't tell. Trust you had a great time away - and that you enjoy the Quiet fire stamps when you get to them.
Take care. God bless.

Robyn said...

All great minds....
It does my heart good to see a pile of Quietfire Design stamps, even if it involves anticipation!

I hate having to wait in for deliveries... hope you enjoy your afternoon. Your desk looks a little lonely so I hope you get some time there too!

Jackie said...

Lovely desk today Julia. I really enjoy the natural light that seeps through. I find it very calming.

I like your red tape dispenser.

Have a wonderful week. I think I'm #9.

Create With Joy :-)

RosA said...

Oh yes, please show those stamps :) After all, we've come for a good nosey around your desk :)
Compared to my workspace mess yours looks positively spacious!

Shaz in Oz.CalligraphyCards said...

ah Quietfire stamps been promising myself some for ages... maybe one day:D although the dollar is dropping so maybe better wait...love the thought of crafting for three hours... enjoy yours, Julia!
I seem to snack on my crafting ie in bite size pieces... every now and again might actually string a few hours together.
I must get off here soon though as have other commitments happy WOYWW, Shaz in Oz.x #15

artatag said...

Waiting for deliveries is one of the most frustrating things I could think of. Sometimes they only give you the day and you wait around the clock and then, when you go get some needed groceries they come just during the 20 minutes you are gone. And you have to wait again.....
I hope this morning you didn´t give the coffee out of your hands :-)
Cheers and happy WOYWW

Wow dear friend, this looks more like MY desk than yours. And I'm not even showing mine until later today. I hate to admit this, but I've never noticed the grain in the wood of your desk before. And I'm a wood lover, too. Have a great week, dear. I'm hoping to be back next week.

Amy E said...

Wow Julia, I don't think I've ever seen your poor little desk so empty! I hope you take at least all three hours to get it good and messy and creative! Have fun with your allotted time!

Happy Woyww!

Mrs.D said...

Poor Julia, having to twiddle your thumbs while waiting for a delivery! And you have an almost clear desk to do the thumb twiddling on, what sacrifices we wives make for our DBs.
Have a super afternoon and please share what you do with those stamps,
Chris #4

VonnyK said...

Oooh, I hope the delivery guy is really late so you get extra time on top. I nearly had heart failure when I saw nothing on your desk, all sorts of terrible things went through my mind but it's good to know you will be messing it up quite soon. Have a wonderful time "waiting for the delivery guy".

fairy thoughts said...

Oh dear your poor tidy desk. I'm sure you'll do your best to get it messy again..... Deliveries are very frustrating aren't they.... But at least it gives you time to play :-)

Shaz Brooks said...

Hi Julia, I'm back! lol. Blimey, that is an extremely emptied desk- we all know it won't last though. 10 minutes crafting and you'll be working in a 5"x7" space, the same as the rest of us. Impressed by you having a Garden waste collection- we don't get that up here. Have a great week, Huge Hugs, Shaz xxxxx

Twiglet said...

Enjoy your crafting opportunity! x Jo

misteejay said...

That is a very empty desk for you Julia. I'm sure you will fill it up nicely whilst 'kitting'.

Anne said...

Hi Julia and ditto! My desk is empty and I also have to wait in for two deliveries! Lots to do though so it's OK this time! Anne # 32

Diana Taylor said...

What a wonderfully tidy desk - bet it doesn't last long though! Hope you delivery gives you plenty of play time before it arrives! Have a great week,
Diana #32

Robyn Oliver said...

Hi Julia and happy WOYWW. Once in a while it is nice to have an empty desk but I'm sure you'll have been busy today putting kits together but hope you also got some time to play. Bin day over here tomorrow too I've just been loading it up with garden waste. Cheers and have a wonderful week RobynO#27

scrappystickyinkymess said...

Ha! No time to proper WOYWW this week, but I had to say I only WISH I could get away with that. DH watched the feed of the cameras from the office and seems to feel compelled to mention "Oh - I see the delivery arrived" in the continuously active IM window. Now he's added two MORE cameras, one watching the garage doors and one watching the oil tank (both previously blind spots) NOW he says things like "Why were you in the garage?" and "Oh go get your camera - an owl landed on the oil tank...."

Big brother is watching ME LOL! Anyway, back to my cleaning.......

MA -no-number

Angela Radford said...

Hi Julia, I knew when I looked at your desk something was different Lol! now I know.... it's tidy!
With a bit of luck there will be time for some crafting today.
Have a great day and happy crafting, Angela x 35

Sue said...

That was a real shock, seeing your desk...the actual wood of your desk:)

Hope you have a lovely day and get done what you need and then get some 'me' time.

Winnie said...

Very tidy! I always love your desk with the window in front of it, who knew it could work as a reminder! My Mr. D is in charge of remembering to bring out our bins. A good thing as I never get the right recycling out! Have a fun kit making day! Winnie #36

Tertia said...

Hope you got some crafting time in by now!

Ooh! Enjoy doing what you can get up to - won't say a word! Stamps to play with sounds good! Chris 43

Lisca Meijer said...

I hope your frustration levels are not sky high! Waiting for delivery is so annoying, especially when they're not on time. When I worked I sometimes had to take a morning off work and then they didn't turn up!
I recognise what you do with the green bin. I do that too with things I need to remember...Put it in sight, preferably 'in the way' so that you can't possibly forget it.

Good idea to have the garden waste bin in your line of vision, Julia. Hope your delivery has been or comes soon. And hope you'll be able to get at that desk, craft and make more mess - lol!! Hope you have a good day and a good week to come. Hazel, WOYWW #47 x

itsamistry said...

Hello hope you don't mind my joining in - I've not done this in such a long time I used to be a regular until life decided to step in the way. I've not heard of these stamps before so would love to see what they look like.

glendabrooks.blogspot.com said...

I know you are looking forward to having some quiet time with your craft desk! If I have to be away from creating for a day or two I go into withdrawals! I'm an old lady now and want what I want, when I want it! Enjoy! Glenda #44

Nannie4 said...

Apparently I messed up with the linking process. Sorry. Just click "view blog" in the top left corner when you get there and you'll see the correct post.
You are so lucky to have that large window in your workspace. I love your tablet holder. :)

Joynana said...

Hi Julia, I have been gone for a long time and have missed this wonderful blog and all of the fabulous ladies that I met here. So I had to come back. I have been busy creating and you can see from my desk that it is not as neat as yours. Joynana #53

Compared to my desk yours is full of creativity. Have a lovely week.

I see we're at opposite ends of the spectrum this week, seems like your untidiness fairy fluttered over the pond to me. I really do like Quietfire, also had a soft spot for calligraphy, never bought any mind you, but will see what you make with interest.

Hugs

Carole said...

I'm sure you'll have productive results waiting for that delivery because of your positive attitude. I snooped a bit beyond your desk and giggled over the coffee mug and keys in the fridge. The hello dolly tags are adorable. Thanks for sharing. Carole #59

Mariane said...

Ohhh I wish my desk looks like yours because then it means that I have all my project done ;) I know how it is to wait for the delivery - oh my goodness. I do hope you get all good again. Hugs from

Elizabeth said...

Hi Julia, I hope that by the time I'm typing this the delivery has arrived and you are now sitting at your desk crafting away and trying out those stamps as anticipated :) Have a great week. Hugs, Elizabeth x #62

Kim said...

Yes, your desk is a bit scary right now; so as only a crafter can appreciate...I hope your delivery is a bit delayed! Good luck with the kiting, err, kit making...you now what I mean...

Zsuzsa Karoly-Smith said...

I was wondering about the bin, LOL!

Cazzy said...

Hi Julia, your poor desk looks abandoned!
The first thing I noticed was the green bin. Ours was cardboard and plastics today and they have been!

Happy WOYWW.

Monica said...

Have not go round to writing posts as so much happening and I seem to be forever busy on Tuesday evening and Wednesday morning. After today hope to get life on track for the things i enjoy.

April Story said...

I like a good clean up every now and again - so I can start the craft cycle over. :-) Glad to know i'm not the only one who is forgetful.

Hammers said...

Hi Julia! I love how tidy your desk is!!! Also is that pink bobbly thing a pen? I don't mind seeing your bin - a) it reminds me of home b) I don't have a desk with a view anymore. Cx #68

I'm a Little Teapot said...

I hope the delivery came right away and you could play the afternoon!

Hehehe! Oh look, could it be the same garbage bin you lost your mug on yesterday for Tea day? *smiles* Happy WOYWW to you, Julia!

Our garden waste bin is brown. The green one is for recyclables...

Sandy Leigh said...

I'm #54 to comment, and I'm #54 on the list! (I don't know where the other comments are, but should have been here...hmmm...people, you need to comment after you link!) Although I'm commenting HOURS after I linked because I linked while I was on the treadmill at 6 a.m. and then had a crazy morning in my office. So Miss Julia...a MAN at your desk! I guess I would also tidy up if my husband had to sit at my worktable, and it has happened. I think I love the anticipation of playing with new stamps almost as much as actually playing with them! Hugs! Sandy Leigh

Debs Willis said...

I think if you've been a good girl and filled that garden bin, then you deserve to do whatever you like this afternoon - hope you had fun! Happy WOYWW Annie C #75

Good evening, Julia! Don't you love a clean desk with projects waiting for you? Can't wait to see what you're up to next! Take care! #78

I haven't been by in a bit! So happy to see your work space again.

Marit said...

Hope the delivery made it early, and you had a nice afternoon playing at your desk. Empty/tidy desk are much needed sometime to get een 'clean head' and start fresh, but I do hope your desk (and mood!) looks colourful at the moment! Enjoy the nice, sunny weather also (or is it colder across the Northsea? We have 25 degrees celcius overhere!) Enjoy your weekend. Love, Marit #46

Annie said...

Hi. Thanks for visiting me yesterday. It's a better late than never for me this week. My day yesterday started badly when I broke my glasses [and I see nothing without them...not even which box my spare glasses were in!!] I'm afraid to say that up til Christmas my WOYWW visiting has to be done on the Thursday because I have taken on an extra day with my twinnies but I promise I will still be visiting :-)
Hope your crafty time yesterday wen really well.
Hugs,
Annie x

Neet said...

Nice to see someone else having time off from crafting because other things got in the way. Hope the garden bin was remembered, ours resides in the garage (I am a homewatch coordinator) so we have got into the habit now of putting the bins out in rotation.
Hope you find time to craft soon (if not yesterday afternoon (wink wink)
Hugs, Neet xx 24

Dawn's Stamping Garden said...

Julia - I messed up my link on #78, and was advised, so I fixed it, but I also (my bad) added a second link - #80. I apologize for messing up the links...Thank you! Dawn

Eliza said...

Hi Julia,

Sorry got linked yesterday and only now getting to leave a comment for you. I did a double take as I thought I was in the wrong place then i noticed the deck chair and thought no way, the desks is clean, get out of here. Seriously now are you feeling alright or are you trying to put the rest of us to shame LOL sorry still in shock, oh don't forget to put the bin out.....

Hugs Eliza Yoda & Flat Susan
Belated WOYWW greetings.
