What's On Your Workdesk? 351

This post is scheduled, and as my desk will be unchanged, I wont feel too bad. We were working elsewhere last week and this week, the only non-free day is Wednesday. I'm beginning to suspect Mr Dunnit's motives!

There's loads on my desk but not much to see. I deliberately haven't changed it because that would be more staging than is worth it! Under the '&' paper is five LOS that I managed to do at the crop at the beginning of the month. Each needs journaling before filing and I simply haven't got further than unpacking yet. I'll show you when they're done. You know I'm good for it, because once done, I'll be smug. The cards in cellopane are spread out on a basket of supplies waiting to be put away. The new cards are part of a selection that I'm choosing from for a workshop. Fascinating. You can just see one of my new stamps 'wood' mounted teacup by Finnabair. I may not drink much tea, but I love to get together for it! And at this angle, it looks strange, but on top of the sellotape is just a reel of tape awaiting my having the strength to load it into the ATG gun. It takes about thirty seconds, so you understand my delaying.
Share then will you, your work surface this week - let us see what you're doing (or not doing, as in my case). No overt advertising please. Put WOYWW in your post title and link here. Cool. As the kids apparently don't say any more. Well, Who knew!

Love the '&' paper. Really love the Kraft 'love' card too - always love circles. Hope the day is a good one and you can sort your layouts - I know they'll be shared with us as soon as you can!

Kyla said...

Five layouts already started, that's a really good start....I have not started my Malta layouts from two years ago!!!
I can totally understand why you are procrastinating on the ATG my spool tangled part way through and couldn't get it back on and neither could hubby even with watching a ton of YouTube videos. I ended up putting a new reel on (where do you buy yours from, craft obsessions is the only place I can find?) and what a faff but worth it as its a great tape.

Love the card on the top - really beautiful and gorgeous papers and a stack of glue - all ready to get going by the looks of it, hopefully I'll get chance to photograph my desk in a bit!

Happy WOYWW!

Angela Radford said...

Hi Julia, another desk in waiting I think! Gorgeous papers. I have to say I have used a similar design for a card with the circles, I think they may get lots more use yet. Have a great day and happy woyww, Angela x 28

Shoshi said...

That's a lot of paper, Julia! You will have fun with that. Like you, I am also psyching myself up to put a new refill in my ATG gun! I always have to look up how to do it...

Happ WOYWW,

Neet said...

Here you are with lovely papers on your desk and I have just got rid of a "shed load" of them. Yes took a big bag full to a friend at weekend as I so need to clear some stuff out and make room for stuff bought. Must remember I need space for new stuff when I am tempted to buy.
Now what is your DH playing at? Wednesdays!!!
Hugs, Neet 4 xx

pearshapedcrafting said...

Great papers but what I especially like is that fabulous flower spray at the bottom of the photo! Finally feel I can join in and send comments around to other folk!! Hugs, Chrisx

glitterandglue said...

Good morning Julia. Don't pass out - but, yes, I have finally managed to post this morning! Great looking papers - and I thinkI would need to really prych myself up to fill a glue gun. Not got one - so I'm with Shoshi - I would need to look it up each time!
Take care. God bless.

Cara said...

Pah, kids these days they wouldn't know cool if it hit them on the nose! Loving the & paper, definitely cool! Cara x

My desk was 'scheduled' too... and it hasn't changed at all - well, maybe a bit more messy lol

Diane Futrell said...

Happy Wednesday! I'm excited to be here again this week! Like my desk I'm still a mess...but a work in progress! :)

Shel C said...

I try to say 'cool' to my kids as often as possible. It is fun to see them roll their eyes. Have a great WOYWW ;)

Sylvia/LittleTreasures said...

Pretty papers. You are sooooooooooooooo busy with a big variety of things to keep your time occupied. Enjoy a fun week. Happy WOYWW

SusanLotus said...

Hi!
My desk is messy and it looks like I do alot. But I am sooo slow. And I jump from one thing to another. Wish I was superdisciplined but I am not...

Have a fun WOYWW and happy week.
Thanks for doing this each week! :D

Aimeslee W. said...

Hello Julia! I just successfully linked up for first time #44 and am very excited to join the fray here! Your desk looks pretty interesting - I would definitely want to play with those papers. I relate to the ATG reload. I have to get out the instructions every time! Also, journaling on layouts was always something I needed "the right time" to do, then never did. Love the sunlight on your desk. I've been lurking for about a month, readying to enter lol, and have seen mostly pre-dawn desks from you. You get such great sunlight! Have a good one! xoxo

Angie said...

It's a conspiracy!!! Us Yanks you know are great believers in those, well at least I am when it comes to my husband trying to stop me from doing something he isn't a part of lol! I'm just kidding, feeling feisty now that I'm able to move up the stairs without being so sore and out of breath as to need to go back and collapse on the lounge chair. Happy Wednesday!

Shaz Brooks said...

Hi Julia, yeah, I hate fussy cutting too, with a passion, so minimise it as much as possible. Do like the ampersand paper- very nice background. Love the black card I can see poking out too.Have a great week, Huge hugs, Shaz xxx

Dawn Catmull said...

Your '&' paper is fab, I managed to get a '&' stamp the other day...another thing unused yet but I just love the fact that I have one lol.
Have a great day.

Stacy Sheldon said...

the ampersand paper is very cool. love the card peeking out too. :) ~Stacy # 56

Sandy Leigh said...

Did you make the "Love a lot" card? What a cute sentiment!! I want to make that card. Well you deserve away time for sure, and you are so kind to keep us all going whilst your away! So no worries about Mr. Dunnit. Happy Wednesday! Sandy Leigh #51

Laura (Bookworm) said...

Good morning (afternoon, or evening), Julia! That ampersand paper is super cool -- I've always had a soft spot for that whimsical punctuation mark. The card that appears to be the second one down in the stack looks intriguing -- a line art floral stamp on a cream background, black text, on a black card. Makes me want to drive home and see if I've got anything similar -- it looks really elegant. Happiest of WOYWWs to you! ~ Laura the Bookworm #60

Kelly said...

Five LOs! I am so proud of you. You will have earned your smugness badge :-)
that & paper looks interishesting. Wonder what you'll do with it. A little progress on my side of the world. Just running behind. Creative Blessings! Kelly #62

Tilly Tea Dance said...

No, cool is apparently not cool anymore. 'Sick' is cool...or it was the last time I was within earshot of teenagers. Love the & paper. Hope you get some rest and creative time after all this work! Happy crafting, Max #61

Princess Judy Palmer said...

Fun bunch of designer paper you have there. I like that card with the scribbly circles on it. Happy day to you! PJ #63

Christine said...

Creeping in at better late than never time .....
I don't have one of those large tape holder thingies although I would love one - I'm not very strong either so maybe I'll stick (ha!) with my small tape pens.
Have a good week

Sharon said...

The stamp looks like fun. I like the paper and the Love a lot card in the basket.

As always, thanks for hosting WOYWW

Nikki C said...

Thanks for the advice on the ribbon I don't think it likes any sewing in it at all but it will do for now. I see your a busy girl as always happy late WOYWW hugs Nikki

RosA said...

Love that "&" paper! But I am wondering what you are going to do with it? Just curious :)
Have a good week,
RosA # 35

Sharon Madson said...

That is some pretty paper for scrapping on your desk. Journaling is very important in scrapbooking, so don't put them away without it! LOL #70

jan spencer said...

Julia I like the look of your papers, don't you just hate when work interferes with crafting time, ha,ha
Have a great weekend
Jan no 49

I would love to know why I always start off with one number and end up with a different one,

jan spencer said...

Hi Julia, sorry if I've duplicated this but tried to do it on my ipad this morning and it didn't look like it worked.
anyway love the papers on your desk, don't you just hate it when work gets in the way of crafting!!

Annie Claxton said...

Hi Julia, sorry I'm so late to the party this week! LOVE those cards, I would be chuffed to bits to make those at a workshop. Please come and do one near Norwich! :o) Annie C #73

Shoshi said...

Thank you for your two lovely comments, Julia. The recipe for the samosas said to brush with oil, which I did - they still didn't brown. I'm going to try filo pastry next time. Everybody laughs at our choccies in the oven! So glad you like my kitty page. It's finished now, and up on my blog. As for the stress of the dentist, you are quite right - that sort of upset really does contribute to my fatigue. I'm feeling a lot better now, though, and with this week being less busy, I'm able to pace myself. Yum Sing is now happily settled into the family and very happy to have a name at last!

Cards and paper look fun! And 30 seconds!!! Awesome! I still have to drag out the directions when I change mine! Have a great week.
