What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 300

WOYWW - What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday
Desker - someone who joins in by posting a photo of their workspace on their blog and linking it here.
WOYWWer - someone who visits, comments and enjoys.
The number - the weekly count. This week is the 300th time we've come together to show and tell. 
Believe me when I say the pleasure is all mine; friendships, opportunities, ideas and inspiration that I get from looking at your desks.....worth the cost of broadband. At least. And probably it's best to skate past the amount of shopping I've done as a direct result of the influence of many a Desker. Oh my. 
I hope your interpretation of WOYWW matches mine. I hope your experience of the friendliness matches mine. Please continue as before. Because if you don't, there's no WOYWW! In the spirit of continuance then:
Relative tidiness. After the Altered Mushrooms, I realised I had other deadlines. Here you see me between other stuff (like breakfast and dressing) to create a birthday card. No panic, I've got till tea time to sort it out!  There is an Appleganza for goodness sake..my phone and my iPad. Both of which, this very week, have been declared out of date and probably too slow for effective use. Charming. My ipad is silent...it's too early. And I've noticed that I need to turn my box calendar too...funny what you see through a lens.
There's also another teaspoon/teabag holder in a tea pot shape. Watch this teapot  space!

Please join in - doesnt matter if this is your 1st, 51st, 201st or 300th join...we wanna know what you're doing and see where your doing it..most important! Put WOYWW in your post title and link here....thank you. Three hundred times, I thank you.

Julia
HAPPY WOYWW # 300 wow so many posts and it just doesn't ever get boring I love looking in everyone's spaces and seeing how/and what they are creating :) Your happy birthday looks good did you hand write it ?
Hugs Nikki # 1 <-- WOW !!!

Helen said...

What's an Appleganza?? maybe it's too early, I can't see what you are referring too... May have done some enabling today (though I think you saw Sunday's haul already, so there isn't much else that's new.. phew!) thanks for keeping this going all this time and for all the fun that comes with it! xxx

glitterandglue said...

Morning, Julia. Well done - 300 times!!! You say the pleasure is all yours - golly - it's ours too. We have to admit to the almost only legal addiction.
Take care. God bless.

Where is my friend Julia, and what have you done with her desk? Just joking, because I like that you cleaned up after the hearts and rocking horse. It feels a bit like a party with a milestone, even though it's not exactly. So happy three oh oh dear friend!

scrappystickyinkymess said...

Happy to be back. Having a little trouble with a newer iPad but happy to be here. Can't believe it has been 300 weeks of desks. And no, the pleasure is all ours.

Darnell J Knauss said...

Congratulations, Julia! I come by to see you w/o playing since I don't feel right if I don't have time to visit deskers, but I always enjoy seeing your desk where we all feel so at home and welcome! You're the best!! Cheers to 300 more!! Hugs, Darnell #14

300 happy returns! Many thanks for being our generous hostess every week! I have really enjoyed the camaraderie and having a motivation to blog regularly too.
Love Ali

Happy 300th WOYWW, that's rather a lot! Well done to you! I have been doing woyww for over four years and only missed half a dozen or so! Hope you get the birthday card done . Jackie 17

Create With Joy said...

Woo hoo Julia - I think I have those same stickers on the left side of your desk!

Happy WOYWW to you!

Neet said...

Thanks Julia for providing somewhere for so many crafters to reach out and hold hands in the name of friendship and unashamedly show their desks - be they neat or not.
When you look at it, people like Shaz and Shoshi, have so many people routing for them as they go through anxieties and, no doubt, tears that they would not have had had it not been for you. They are two current people I can name but there are and have been many more. Julia, you are an angel in disguise.
Thank you for my introduction to your club.
Hugs, Neet 10 xx

Shel C said...

Oh Julia, I am with you on the shopping thing! Everyone shows such cool stuff from cool places and then I have to HAVE it! A symptom of the WOYWW fever I guess :) Shel from PaperOcotillo #25

fairy thoughts said...

Morning missus
That's a very tidy desk ... Well I guess it has to be sometime doesn't it. I spy an appropriate card at the back .... Nothing is impossible.... Especially when you are a desker.... here's to the next 300 ..... Such a fun place to visit every week and I don't even have to go out in the cold
Have a good week
Janet

SARN said...

Morning Julia et al . . . dropping by to wish you a HAPPY 300th post kind of day.

No desk from me . . . mine is far,far too boring and tidy today, but just wanted to say HI and Happy 300th. You are a total star.

Hugs, Sarn xxx

Lunch Lady Jan said...

It's a blast! Congrats on an amazing 300 posts....you're the best :-)
Hugs, LLJ 7 xx

Queenie Jeannie said...

HUGE congratulations, Julia!!! You should be so proud of yourself for hosting such an amazing gathering, for now 300 weeks....and counting! Wooo Hooo!!! Bravo and thank you so much!

Lisca Meijer said...

Happy 300th WOYWW Julia!
I like your dry comments on your desk seen through the lens.... I am intrigued by 'appleganza'... I have no idea what that is! A glut of apples would be my guess but there are no apples on your desk. Oh well..
I do like your 'happy birthday' stamp or die. Now that is a useful thing for last minute birthday cards!
Have a good week (It will be difficult for me to join in next week as I'll be in Italy, but I'll try. I'm sure there will be someone with a computer)
Lisca

Lynn Holland said...

Yes you must be thanked for your persistence, what a star for not getting tired or bored of us all.
Ipad slowing up after 3 fab years and iphone with to many pics on and needs sorting.......technology is wonderful when it's working
Have a great week Julia x

Robyn Oliver said...

Thank you, thank you Julia and congrats on 300 posts - I'm so pleased I came across your WOYWW blog, I look forward to Wednesdays, sharing my desk and visiting the spaces of so many crafty, inspiring people, friendly people - I agree with Neet - just knowing you're not alone with your crazy crafting addictions or as with Shosi and Shaz and others and their daily battles. WOYWW an incredible adventure.

RosA said...

Your 300th desk is looking quite neat and tidy :) Thanks for bringing all these far flung desk people together. Certainly brightens up Wednesdays!

Shoshi said...

Happy WOYWW, Julia, and thank you for being Desk Manager in Chief for 300 whole episodes of this epic drama!! (Not that I joined at the start.) What fun it's been, and will continue to be!

Nothing on my desk again this week. I have a new date for my surgery - Wed. 18th March in the afternoon. I have a clear fortnight and suddenly life feels a bit more normal! I'd be grateful if you could update your "Shoshi update" in case people don't visit my blog - that is, if you've got a moment! Many thanks.

Big Thank you for all you do, and I love that Happy Birthday stamp.
Are you saying that someone else has told you that your iphone and ipad are too old and need updating, and is he offering to supply latest version? Jump at it girl, enjoy

Wish I could be there for tea time to clink cuppas with you!! Hugs! Sandy Leigh

505whimsygirl said...

Hi Julia, I totally agree! It's the friendliness of those that participate that I really love about WOYWW. Your desk looks nice and neat! I just got a notebook (or whatever they are called) and love it. Will you get another?

Happy WOYWW

300, wow. I was just going to stop by and say hi, wasn't even going to post today, but couldn't miss the 300!

Your tidy desk is an inspiration to me--I'm actually avoiding cleaning up my art room by woywwing . . .

Laura (Bookworm) said...

Hurray! Happy 300! I feel your pain regarding Apple products and their lifespans. We love them but are wishing we hadn't bought the 16 GB capacity for our iPhones because it's just not enough space. Ah, well. First world problems I believe these are called! ~ Laura #69

Lindart said...

Congratulations on #300! I just wish i had posted all 300 Wednesdays! After all the Wednesdays I have been posting, however, #300 is the cleanest and tidiest! And not even on purpose!

Helen Campbell said...

Happy 300! That's a lot of workdesk showings! Your desk looks quite tidy this week, even though you're still back in February. :) Have a wonderful week! Helen #63

Cara said...

Okay, feeling a little better about the state of my desk now!

CraftyHope said...

Happy 300th!! I kinda hate that I just discovered you in the last several weeks, but am so glad that I have. I'm such a voyeur in respects to others' spaces. You're helping me fulfill that need. Ha!
As for what you're seeing through the lens. .I never see any of the imperfections until I start to edit and then it's just too late. If your iPad is anywhere near as old as mine, I feel ya in its outdatedness. I've pretty much given up using mine since it just crashes for everything.
Again, Congrats!!

Kelly said...

HAPPY WOYWW #300, Julia. Thank you so much for bringing us together from all corners of the globe every week. We love you! No go mess up that desk. LOL

Congrats with the 300, lets take 300 more :D Even when I have only known your blog and the WOYWW for two weeks I have completely fallen in love with you and the concept. It is just so wonderful that so many people stop up and take a picture of the daily life at the workdesk every week :) Se you in the future ;)

Cardarian said...

300????? Really???? My dear Julia you deserve one of those OBE or whatever HM the Queen gives away as you are really the Dame of WOYWW!
Thank you so much for every WOYWW!
Lots of love and hugs,
Cardarian

VonnyK said...

I'm back! I had a look at your Altered Mushrooms and it turned out beautiful. I love the little rocking horse on the top. I know what you mean about the Apple products, we have to buy a new ipad for little miss, for school, every two years. It's compulsory and costs a fortune. I'm interested to see what you do with the teapot thingy, my friend loves anything to do with tea and could give me some ideas.
Have a great week,
Von #32

StampinCarol said...

I have to admit also that I'm really enjoying being a part of WOYWW! I did look back at your altered "mushrooms" and love how they turned out! I have yet to get an IPad as I have a PC which sees use daily, especially on Pinterest. I'll be watching your "space" and do check back regularly besides WOYWW! Happy day!

Claire Grantham said...

Julia, I haven't joined in the fun for a while, too busy at work to return the comment fun and its rude to not comment when people make the effort. I have to thank you for all the blogland friends I have, all made via WOYWW and I am super grateful for that. Congrats on keeping WOYWW alive and for fostering such a fabulous community. Cx

Beverley Baird said...

Happy 300th! Wow! I haven't been here long but so enjoying this community you have gathered.
