Whats On Your Workdesk Wednesday 350

Yikes, deskers! Here it is untouched after a workshop and then a crop.  We've been out fitting windows, so my desk has been rather neglected!
It's a bit over exposed as well, but you have to understand about me and photography and me and cant-be-bothered. You can tell it was crop, my weapons of choice are loaded into the craft tote that LJJ made for me, complete with my 'away' glasses perched in the end pocket. Not usual, that. I'm so paranoid about not having glasses where I need them that they're usually far better tucked in - for safety's sake!
The basket at right of the tote contains makings for one of the workshop cards, there was embossing and a Pearl Ex palette, not sure which card; if I haven't already, I'll share it at some point. I think that's it in terms of interest...blimey, must do better! Still - it is consistent in the untidiness! So do share your desk and what you're doing at it, that will be great for a languid visit with cuppa in hand! All of my visits tomorrow will be by iPad...that spells trouble with comments, so bear with me! Don't advertise, put WOYWW in your title and link your post here, that's all. The rest is about visiting each other and being inspired!

as ever it's a pleasure to peruse your desk..good luck with the ipad commenting.. it's a bit like commenting from the phone I think . those glasses do look a bit precarious there, hope you've rescued them now! xx

Nikki C said...

One day you'll have everything where you like it then you will look at it smile and start crafting and it will be back to its usually state of Crafty goodness. I would love some more storage so I can rearrange what I have into something with drawers but the DH thinks it's because I'd love more lol little bit of column a and little bit colum b=buy new stash
Hugs Nikki 3

I'm also typing on my note pad sometimes you get some really messed up words

Your desk always looks well used and busy! I gave up trying to blog and comment from our iPad. Much too stressful!
Love your LLJ tote.
Hugs Lynda B 8


Robyn said...

How could I tell. I don't think I've ever actually cropped, much less been to one. Guess I need to get out more and/or make new friends! i do know my way around a pet palette !

I have trouble doing things on my tablet too. It's a nightmare. I can't even do basic things like copy and paste! So I'm lugging this old desktop-replacing laptop everywhere I go. I'm due a new one as Windows Vista is no longer supported, and I'm looking around. My DH says I should get a proper desk-top, and he has a point, but that spells trouble with my blogging. As every Tuesday morning (apart from today) we are at our weekend home for a rest.... will let you know what the outcome is.
Have a good week,
Lisca

It's good to see you've been busy [and still are by the sounds of it]. Good luck with the ipad....they really are brilliant [for some things]. I've been falling out with mine cos messages don't always come up in my message box on my ipad even when they have flashed up accross the screen and then the only way I can see them is to fire up the trusty lap top!!
Have a great week. Stay warm fitting those windows.
Hugs,

Clair said...

Have been really ill the last couple of weeks so my desk had been completely bare !very dull.) At least consistently messy is consistently interesting! ;)

butterfliecrafter said...

maybe not a lot going on on the desk, but you did have your crop this weekend.

misteejay said...

I do love your tote from LLJ.
At least you have signs of activity even if it was the fact that you had been to a crop/workshop LOL.

Lynn Holland said...

Are those my glasses Mrs D, I've lost mine. I wouldn't mind but they are the real ones and not the poundshop pair
Have a good week

Virginia said...

Loving the tote bags you have - so pretty - I can't go anywhere without my glasses but they are always firmly on my face!

Anne said...

The tote is fab - of course. I have two from LLJ :-) keep knitting in ready for journeys up and down country! Desk looks interesting I think. Anne x @17

Neet said...

That's a pretty tote you have, how wonderful to have a friend like LLJ who can sew. Maybe I should get my (still new) sewing machine out and come to terms with it - but there is so much else to do first!
Love that deckchair, there is something about it that appeals.
Thanks for introducing us all to one another.
Hugs & Love
Neet 13 again!!! xxxxx

Sue said...

Looks like your desk is waiting for more projects.

Hope you are having a good week. Sue #20

Angela Radford said...

Crops sound great but I don't have friends locally that are interested maybe I need to advertise for some Lol! Happy woyww and big hugs, Angela x 26

Your desk is always just full of good things! I always love coming to visit. For some reason I keep putting "Glenda-Correct Link" on the list, but this morning I think I finally got it figured out and it should not happen again. Sorry about that!

Christine said...

I wish you had been with us yesterday - I was trying to explain about a crop ..... we decided that one has to be there to understand!!! lol

Hope you manage to return to your proper job of crafting at your desk soon.
Have a good week

sue jones said...

If my desk is ever tidy - i just HAVE to sit at it and mess it up! Hope you get chance to play soon.Soojay xx

Clemencia R said...

I'm with you, leaving comments from my tablet is a pain lol but your desk shows how nicely busy you have been, love it :)

Twiglet said...

Oh that little tote is so cute - the perfect one for all your bits and bobs! x Jo

Dawn Catmull said...

Great post Julia...made me laugh! Happy Wednesday :-)

Sharon said...

Nice LLJ tote. It looks quite dark outside. Yikes.

I am ALWAYS losing my glasses on my desk! That looks like a great pocket to keep them in - if you remember where you put them lol.

Is that a mini-deckchair I see on your desk?

Happy WOYWW

Diane Futrell said...

This is my first time for sharing my mess. I can't wait to hop around and see everyone's room and get some great ideas. So happy to be here! thanks!

Marit said...

I noticed the glasses 'hanging out'... eeeckk... I bought me a new (third) pair of reading glasses last week 'cause one can never have enough of those. (I really missed having glasses in the kitchen, the text on packages is tinyyy!!!)
I hope you have a lovely day and as sunny as we have in the Netherlands! Happy woyww, Marit #45

Cara said...

You made me smile as usual! Good luck with the iPad tomorrow. I wouldn't be without mine, goodness knows when the laptop last got dragged out of its case. Have a wonderful Wednesday. Cara x

Angie said...

Julia I envy the crops and workshops and creative fun you get to have. I've got two stamping partners in crime, my mom and my gal pal Kathy that I actually got hooked on stamping. It's so nice to have friends to share it with, you are blessed!

trisha too said...

Oh gosh, the pads are fine for some things, but they are a challenge for the comment-leaving type activities! The crop sounds like a lot of fun, I miss doing that.

Claire Grantham said...

Sometimes your desk just has to be a messy place. I actually have a 'oasis' on my desk..a nice gap in amongst the mess! Cx #47

Zsuzsa Karoly-Smith said...

A cute little tote! I find it increasingly difficult to see details without my reading glasses too! So far I have resisted the idea of carrying a pair with me, but perhaps I should! I'm dreading the day when I have to ask someone in the shop to read a label for me! zsuzsa #40

Sandy Leigh said...

You are a busy girl! And I'm so glad that I'm not the only one terrified of not my having my glasses. My problem is that since the surgery on the left eye, my prescription for both up close and far away is much stronger than the right eye, so I can't even get away with buying a bunch of readers anymore. And my glasses insurance program won't let me have more than one pair at a time, but I really want a second pair for insurance sake, so I might have to do that anyway! *sigh* Oh and I loved you post about glue the other day too!

Cathy L. Calamas said...

I have the same issue with my ipad, too. It's a pain because I like to browse blogs on my ipad while the hubby watches tv. I also have crafting/computer eyeglasses that I can't do without.

Kelly said...

Lots of goodies. LLJ is the sweetest and what a handy tote. Hubby is forever without his cheaters when we go somewhere. I bought a zip case to keep a pair attached to my purse for when we are out and about. thanks for creating this road map to creativity for us. Creative Blessings! Kelly #54 ish

Lindart said...

My post this week is rather shocking, even worse news than last week. I'm hoping 2016 will shape up and get better, but so far it's been a disappointment to say the least. It is nice to see some "normalcy" in the blogs I am visiting.

Hi Julia,
A messy desk is a happy crafter! I keep telling myself I'm going to clear the clutter from the dining room table and get a project going (other than knitting) to share with my fellow deskers.

Have a wonderful WOYWW!

Hugs,
Kay

Princess Judy Palmer said...

She's all packed up and ready to go! Those glasses hanging out make me nervous as heck. Then again all mine are prescription and cost double the car payment. PJ #55

Stacy Sheldon said...

the very first thing that caught my attention was the glasses hanging outside the pocket your shot makes me want to go tuck them in for you. lol :)

Tilly Tea Dance said...

OOh I have tote envy - that's lovely. That LLJ is so good with colour combination. I know what you mean about iPad commenting. I usually do my blog from my smart phone but always have to go on the laptop to finish off the links as my phone just can't cope with that! Happy crafting, Max #60

Shoshi said...

Nice busy desk, Julia, and lovely to see one of LLJ's bags there too! I did my WOYWW post last night and have been really busy baking all day, and just sat down and nobody had visited me which I thought a bit odd, till I suddenly remembered I hadn't actually signed on!!! Duh. Still, better late than never!

Shoshi - a late #61!

I hope you have better luck commenting on your iPad Julia than I'm having, driving me mad, may have to leave comments until tomorrow

Never tried an ipad. I'm quite fond of my old laptop, it does the job. Just read your glue post below. I was a die hard tape user, until I discovered Tombow, now it's wet glue (almost) all the way. Love the "wiggle room" it gives me and dries very quickly.

Linda Harris said...

Pretty tote. Hope you had fun with your crop and workshop. Linda #64

Peg Robinson said...

Ya iPad is not the best for comments. I usually go for the laptop. Looks lick another happy, busy week. The workshop sounds fun. Peg 66

SusanLotus said...

Hi Julia!

I was so buzy commenting on others desks that I did forget to comment on yours too.
This is so fun and I´m happy you organize it each week.

When is the next meet up I have a serious amount of stuff to off load on unsuspecting crafty friends!!!

Elizabeth said...

I've long since given up trying to comment using my iPhone, Julia. I absolutely hate it so good luck with the commenting on your iPad! Love the tote LLJ made for you. Have a great week. Hugs, Elizabeth x #41

I hope you will share all the work you get done at the crop.
