What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 279

You know I'm away right?  Yep, getting some late sun. So this is a recorded message - but, I have to say, it's actually pretty accurate.

I have some sensibility about me though, so although the old workdesk will still look very similar to this, before I left, I did pick out the ink pads and glues and remove them to their rightful places.  And this effort was made to prevent them from sitting on the desk in afternoon sun, gently baking dry.  Otherwise, they'd have stayed there - everything else has.  What?  I've been busy!
Christmas is still on my table, I keep telling myself to get used to the idea, but I still can't quite. Odd, because by the time Christmas is over, I'll really be in the mood to use glitter and tinsel!
Share then - what are you up to this Wednesday? Show us your work space, wherever and whatever...we consider it an invitation.

I hope you are having a lovely, relaxing time, without the hospital trip from your last attempt at a holiday!! Your desk looks great - I think Christmas finally needs to come to mine, really had better get started! Enjoy yourselves.. xx

Hi Julia,
Well your workdesk looks rather full and I'm sure it's going to be waiting for you to create something when you get back from your holidays...
Hope the sun is shining and the wine glasses are flowing lol, have a fab holiday....

Sharon Madson said...

Enjoy your time away. Your desk will be there when you get back! I did get an easel for my mini pad, but am sending the link you gave me to my kids. Maybe they will get me a cute deck chair for me for Christmas! Thank you Julia.

That's an order.

Hope you are enjoying the sun - it seems to have 'done a runner' from here...chilly & wet at the moment.

Sunshine Girl said...

I have to admit that I get quite a lot of Christmas stuff done in January - especially if it snows - think its because I am still in a glittery mood then too! Enjoy your hols.

Neesie said...

Recharging the batteries in the sun sounds sheer bliss Julie,
Have a wonderful time ;D

Shoshi said...

Hope you are enjoying your holiday, Julia. Thank you for leaving your messy desk for us to enjoy while you are away lol! Perhaps we should all gang up and come and tidy it for you before you get back. Rudolf is looking particularly proud of himself - great card!

Happy WOYWW wherever you are,
Shoshi #32

Shaz Brooks said...

HI Julia, hope you are having a smashing holiday- it has to go better than the last! I can't 'feel' like Christmas too early in the year either, and can't make C cards unless I'm in the right mood. Have a lovely break Julia, Hugs, Shaz xxx

Neet said...

Why were the inkpads put away? They should have gone with you and then you could have continued with "C" whilst sitting in the sun. Or do you just want to chill? Or am I just feeling jealous?
Hugs
Neet 29 xx

Marit said...

Hope you're having a great time in the sun Julia!! Good thing you thought about removing the ink pads from the table... I think we all had 'accidents' with that, at least I learned from experience to never forget to close lids, store pencils horizontal and put ink pads in the drawer... happy woyww and hugs from (grey and rainy) Holland, Marit #38

Robyn Oliver said...

Hi Julia, hope you're enjoying your well earned break, happy WOYWW wherever you are. Cheers RobynO#37

Angela Radford said...

I think you are very sensible leaving the desk like that Lol! that way you don't have to try and remeber what you were doing before you went away and can just continue with where you left off when you get back right!
Happy holiday, Angela x

Judys Fabrications said...

Gosh, your desk full of goodies makes me want to dive right in and have a play.
Have a lovely hol. A short, fun hol is a marvellous thing! Enjoy.

My name is Cindy said...

Morning Julia or are you still abed? You chose a good week to visit sunnier climes! Freezing here altho the big yellow things looks set to make an appearance. You need to do what I did this year - spent January making Christmas cards before I put it all away again and whilst I was in the mood - you are right - AFTER the festivities is mor conducive to christmassy stuff! Have a good break, Cindy x

Helen said...

Hope you have a great break. I've just spotted that great reindeer stamp (with the big antlers) which I bought at the weekend!

Hope you're both having a super time in the sun - well done for thinking of moving the ink pads - although it wouldn't be a problem here today .. rain, rain ... Hazel, WOYWW #47 x

Chrysalis said...

Hope you're having a great time. Come back relaxed and refreshed. Hugs xx

Laura said...

I read the word 'sun' and then saw the word 'wishes'. Pretty much sums it up here! Still, at least we have desks to pore over

Angie said...

Ha! I know just what you mean. I am that way about EVERY season....Seems like I get into the mood to create for a season..AFTER the season!
Hoping you are having a fab time in the sun!!!!

Have fun in the sun!

butlersabroad said...

Hope the sun is shining and that you can still dip your toes in The Med. LOVE the Rudolph with Robins stamps and card on the desk, brilliant! Glad to hear you take care of your inkpads at least! But "baking on the desk" implies that you expect the sun to shine whilst you're away, which if it turns out to be the case, why did you go away, lol!!!!

Hugs

Ohhh Snap said...

Ditto on all the comments about you and your's staying healthy on this trip : ). Love that Christmas card, that is an adorable Reindeer.

Enquiring minds want to know what is that cellophaned bit on the ipad deck chair that looks like perforated paper? #62

Happy holibobs Julia..I am counting the days until we head to Mexico. Love the chaos on your desk. How sensible to remove all the inks and glues! Cx #65

Krisha said...

Hope your enjoying your trip!

Angie said...

Just looking at your desk leads me to believe that you needed a break! I love Christmas but I suppose I'm predisposed since I was born the day before!
Angie #67

sandysewin said...

Yeah, October is fine for having Christmas on a crafter's desk. It's when they try to get us back in June that I get annoyed. :-)

Enjoy your time, I'm sure it's well earned!

Happy Woyww,

Sandy #27

Kate said...

I said I would get all my Christmas cards made early this year and bought some new bits to use on them! Thanks for the reminder.

Mary said...

Wow, lots to look at on your desk, and lots to come home too....Wow, how can you relax knowing all that creativity is waiting for you. If you get home and anything is missing....I wasn't there :-) Have fun in the sun!

Cazzy said...

Hi Julia,

I am just the same about Christmas, reluctant to get going on it before, then afterwards I can do Christmas like crazy! Maybe I should just plan to do it in January and get it over with!

Have a lovely break.

Kim said...

Great reindeer stamp! did you stamp on music tissue paper? Hard to tell on my screen. Have a great trip.

Hope you're having a fabulous time away. I like those tall skinny cards and yet it's a format I've never made myself.

Hi Julia,

I hope you are having a wonderful, relaxing time in the sun! The temperature is dipping here and fall has arrived. The colors are beautiful.

Your desk looks very impressive, I must say. I love what you did with the reindeer stamp - is that a bookmark?

Happy belated WOYWW,
Peace, Kay

I left a comment the other day (via my phone) but it appears to have vanished into the black hole of cyberspace :)
Hope you are having a lovely, but uneventful holiday :)
