What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 291

Well, for heaven's sake, here we are at New Year's Eve.  I know time isn't really going any faster; it's very likely to be me moving more slowly.  I know that the days aren't actually any shorter by any number of minutes or hours, but man, it feels like it.
I had, in the back of my mind, a semi-plan to have a really good clear out in my work room and streamline my operation; hit the ground running and be altogether way ahead of my game. Hasn't happened yet. But it's OK, I've done other things instead. I don't know why the Christmas holiday stifles my creativity, but I think it does. I think it's the lure of food. So, my desk is cleared of the company book-keeping stuff, and waiting for something.  It may well just be the turn of a page, entry into a New Year. Or it may be that overdue clear out. I don't know, but I'm looking forward. I won't be making any retrospective posts. I'm not good at looking back, it makes me too sentimental - and also, proves that my memory is questionable!  So, given my 'It is what it is' sort of attitude, the big pink eraser leaning on my iPad is very suitable.  Part of a Christmas gift from Miss Dunnit's current Squeeze. He's got to know me quite well!  
 
Lunch Lady Jan on the other hand, has me all wrong. I can tell you already that she'll be laughing her head off as she reads this...Seriously, all wrong.

Join in then, this New Year's Eve...show us how your holiday work surface is looking in the face of a New Year. Put WOYWW in your post title and link here. We'll do the rest.

This message comes to you without fuss or drama to wish you and yours a Happy and successful New Year; may 2015 be everything you intend it to be.

Well LLJ chose a lovely gift and it would have suited me to the ground so I guess you are chuffed really.

As for the 'squeeze' - he knows how to treat his girl friends mother,
Happy New Year to you and yours. I have a full day to go before New Years Eve when I waken up and I have to go to bed yet. I am still confused - it's still Tuesday.
Hugs, Neet xx

Kyla said...

I can hear LLJ laughing from here 👑
what a perfect gift ☺

Helen said...

I love both your gifts, still laughing at your 'drama queen' title! Your desk looks very clear - I certainly recognise the 'can't craft after Christmas' scenario, I had to force myself to paint my chest (you know what I mean, titter ye not!)
Happy New Year to you and the family. Hope 2015 is a great one in every way xxx

Happy New Year to you to Julia and thanks for the old one. What a tidy desk you have today, I'm afraid you wont find that round at mine Lol!
Happy crafting, Angela x 23

glendabrooks.blogspot.com said...

What a clean and ready to go desk you are showing this morning. I can't help but notice the wonderful light coming through those windows! Here's wishing you the very best in the upcoming new year! I thank my stars everyday for you as I don't know how I'd manage without getting to be a part of this wonderful hop!

Shaz Brooks said...

Hi Julia, and Happy New Year to you and yours. My post says much the same- where on earth did that year go? Can't imagine for a moment that the desk will stay looking like that for long! Huge Hugs, Shaz xxx

Sandy Leigh said...

Everything you said is so true! I thought I would be way into my creative to do list by now. Not happening! Just a beautifully clean desk, like yours. Hugs and happy new year! Sandy Leigh

Christine said...

A big thank you for all the hosting, laughing and inspiration for 2014.
I am looking forward to 2015 with much excitement and expectation - did I tell you that I am going to drop my negative self criticism? Well, the thought is there!
Wishing you all that you wish for yourself in 2015.

Love the pink rubber and the 'Drama Queen'. LOL they are funny (even if course, the latter isn't true!!). It's good to clear the decks for the new year,

Karen said...

I'm back again! I'll be checking out your sites whilst I'm on dialysis!! Have A very Happy New Year everyone!!! As long as it's better than last year il be a happy bunny!!! 🐰! Love Karen xx 😃

Zsuzsa Karoly-Smith said...

I'm the opposite! I've signed up to so many classes/challenges starting in January that I'm actually over stimulated! I used to feel lethargic about January, but now I'm looking forward to it and can't wait to get started! LOVE the pink rubber!

Artatag said...

Funny thing that the last day of the year is a Wednesday!! So I will spent quite some time with world wide travel on the sofa I suppose :-)

Drama Queen..Too Funny. Have a Happy New Year. #37

Monica said...

Just accept you will never be tidy and organized in your art life. In my experience tidy people spend as mush time tidying up as we do looking for stuff. The true TIDY also known today as OCD is usually unable to do anything unless everything is in the right place then they can start. Perfectionism is a cousin to tidy and the carriers of these genes have a lot of angst. We untidys just tear up what we created and do not like and leave the bits on our desks and later on finding the bits declare it a treasure and reuse it!
Oh I see uyou too have the ROBOT. Google playing cop and protecting us!!!

Kim said...

I wish you and your family a Very Happy New Year! Your comment about time not speeding up but us slowing down; it feels right. I'm going with that..perhaps it will reduce the stress of lost time...

Shel C said...

Oh Julia, I know exactly how you feel with the food drawing you in! I made myself hide in my studio from it lol. I did get alot done though...but cleaning isn't any of it. There is so much paper on my floor I think mice or birds would love a shot at nest making! Happy WOYWW!

Happy New Year Julia wishing you and your family all the very best for 2015 Anita #42

Ohhh Snap said...

Here's wishing you a fabulous 2015 : D. I'm not much of a retrospective sort either.

We are prepared for New Year's Eve with our Penny Jar noise makers and sparkling grape juice lol. OK we celebrate the countdown with Animal Crossing lol. Tomorrow we'll eat ham and black eyed peas (a lucky day for every bean eaten on New Year's Day).

I've heard the time thing is because we have more time in our memory as we age. A year to a 5 yo is 1/5... to a 50 yo 1/50 lol. Right side of the dirt and all that : D. #41

Sharon Madson said...

I am in the dark about the Drama Queen stuff. But, hey, I got my deck chair for Christmas! :) We will all get to being more creative after the holidays, I hope. Hayppy New Year, Julia!

Happy New Year to you Julia!

MaggieC said...

How very strange! When I logged in, I was No45 and I was just thinking I would rather be No 50. I did a refresh and, guess what, I am now No 50. What an incredibly tidy desk, Julia. I also had the intention of getting my desk straight to start the New Year ready to really get things done. However my Mojo had other ideas, finding my missing paints for me. It would have been rude not to play, wouldn't it? I hope you have a very good 2015 with lots of fun and crafting to come. Happy New Year. xxx Maggie #50

happy New Year to you Julia, I'll try not to be such a stranger next year.

Angie said...

Happy Everything!!!! Christmas does seem to obscure the creativity but after... Well that's a horse of a different color! I'm ready and more than willing to get back to being inky. At least till the warm spring air stirs and invites me to the gardens!

Shoshi said...

Better late than never, I suppose - it is still just about Wednesday. My goodness, Julia, what a tidy desk. Are you sure it's yours? Lol!

Happy WOYWW,

hee hee you are so far from being a drama Queen Julia, thanks for the smiles and the fun views this last year. Happy New Years :) ~Stacy #60

Krisha said...

Just no time to join WOYWW this week, and I know it is already the new year for you. I'm watching the last few hours of the year tick away. You know we are one of the last time zones and as we say, here on the west coast of the USA........"They save the best for last!"" LOL

Happy New Year Julia and all the rest of the "Dunnits" grin!

Lisca Meijer said...

Happy New Year mrs Dunnit! We've 'dunnit' and got through another year. Here's to 2015!
And I too 'non regrette rien' (rolling my rrrrs like Edith Piaf!)

Happy New Year to all! Looking forward to more WOYWW in 2015. Thanks for all of your visits and comments. Much appreciated!
(so late Nann#62)

Annie said...

I'm chuckling at your comment Julia and have had to go check the pic concerned cos I never drink coffee made with hot milk so it couldn't possibly be milk skin.....if you enlarge the pic you will maybe see that it is the reflection of the sun coming through the window with the shadow thrown from the plant in the window :-) but thanks so much for the giggle.
Hugs,
Annie x

Mariane said...

Oh what a sign to receive? - Drama Queen - Well I really don't think you are that ... hehe... Happy New Year to you dear Julia and a lots og warm thoughts I send you. Hopefully there is superb happiness to you and more great things.
Kind regards
Mariane

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

I've finally started feeling like I am going to live, so I'm taking time to find out what you are up to. LLJan hasn't got it right at all. You are just a Queen. The WOYWW Queen.

Of course, that desk and the way it looks when this photo was taken, makes me think I'm at the wrong house (grin).

Happy belated New Year, dear friend. I'll see you Wednesday, at least that's the plan.

Sue from Oregon said...

Howdy Drama Queen! Just popped in to see what you have been up to lately...I must say that Lunch Lady knows you pretty well!
