What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 374

*passes the smelling salts*....apologies if you're feeling faint at the sight of this tidied slightly more organised and actually productive desk. I think I'm finally getting a grip gentle reader, and forcing the cogs to turn will, I hope, get the ideas and inclination flowing!
I think the picture is self explanatory, and considering our gloomy weather, the light in here looked pretty good at six o,clock last evening!
Come on then, show and tell y'all.

Good to see you with a messy area - means that you are doing something (even just thinking about it is 'something'). I love my tidy area but it is not as heartwarming as seeing some bits and pieces out there.
Think I need to enter one or two challenges to get my juices flowing, is there something you could enter - lots of "tag" challenges out there.
Have a good week so good to have you back here.
Hugs, Neet 1 (I think) xxx

It's heart-warming to see you at your desk again.It's been a tough haul, but the way ahead must look rosier with each passing day.Sure puts life into perspective doesn't it?
Happy playing!

It was really good to see you in one of the photos last week....you are looking great my friend.....keep up the good work. And now you are making me smile by getting back into your crafting and creating. Little steps but you will be up and in full flow soon.
Sending you lots of love and hugs.

Wild applause from this neatnik! If the ideas still don't come flooding in, than go on reorganizing drawers and such. Excellent for the soul and the brain (and the craft room) and that has to be good, right? Keep on keepin on, my friend! Remember when you get frustrated, the tortoise won in the end! Love and hugs, Darnell

The light was much better where you are yesterday evening. So dark and murky here but at least I managed to get home before the rain hit again.
Lovely to see some activity on your desk. Very pretty cards.

Oh those little thank you cards are lovely - you have the knack for that paper crafting lark don't you!! So glad you are back at it and we all know crafty activity is the best therapy. x Jo

Mi Schra said...

What a wonderful creative mess on that desk of yours Julia! Unfortunately I don't have much time to create this week. Nonetheless I wanted to hop on over to your workdesk this Wednesday. So glad I did!!

Good morning, Julia. This looks like you are doing a simply fantastic job of recovering! Well done. Your workdesk looks hugely industrious, and like you are having a load of fun. Brilliant. It was so good to see you out and about with Jan and Darnell last week.
Take care. God bless.

So pleased you are getting back into the swing of things. Love those turquoise thank you cards especially the die cut swirl (not seen that before).

Shaz Brooks said...

Hi Julia,, great to see you doing. I admit I actually did a lot of tidying and reorganising- sometimes picking up something would make me think of a way to use it, or something I could try. Love the Thank You cards- great how you've used that circles die. I've seen it a lot and could never think of a way to use it. You may have just sold it to me! Love & hugs, see you soon.Shaz XXXXX

Anne said...

Desk looks great Julia, glad that you are crafting again. The thank you cards are lovely. Can't beat a bit of bling for lifting the spirits :-) Anne x #20

AliWade said...

Happy WOYWW. Yay to crafting - lots of lovely Thank You cards - and a big 'embellie' box. I only just remembered that I didn't get a Xmas card made last month (I promised myself that I would start in July this year!). Oh well, a reminder not to set myself too many targets. Enjoy your week. Ali x #22

Great to see you crafting! Your desk isn't suppose to be neat when you are busy. Cute little die cut thank yous. And your cards look pretty to, what I can see of them. Have a great week, Julia! #31

It's so wonderful to see you getting back out there Julia. Lovely to read about your meet up with Diana & Jan. How I wish I lived nearer

Felicia Aaron said...

Julia, I always love your work desk! I especially love your box "full of goodies"! I'm a sucker for sheets of bling like you have all stashed in that box! I'm sure I will never use all that I have acquired in a lifetime, but never the less, I continue to keep bringing that stuff home, in the name of a good deal! LOLOL Blessings for some good mojo this week! Felicia, #34

Stacy Sheldon said...

the layers of texture on the thank you cards look so cool Julia. :)

Kelly said...

Makes my heart happy to see you being able to play. Saw a picture of you last week and you are looking great. We are so blessed to have you. Looking forward to seeing what you do with the cut-outs. Creative Blessings! Kelly #38

Kelly said...

Oh.. they go on the cards! duh! I've only had 1/2 cup of coffee so far this morning. I really like the scribbly circle die. Have added that to my purchase list. Hugs!

BJ said...

Oh well as I wasn't feeling up to much I have just sat in the garden and commented on today's desks. Hoping I can manage all today, although found one G+ already I can't reply to - shame, I even searched for an email address but G+ wasn't having any of it for the likes of me.
Hope you are feeling OK today Julia.
BJ

Princess Judy Palmer said...

Yipee! You are hanging out at your desk and playing! How fun. I wanna come over and dig through that box of goodies that is front and center. I'll bet there are lots of fun embellishments in there to coo over!

Shoshi said...

Thank you for your visit and your lovely comment, Julia - you are very kind about my handwriting which I don't like very much - if I make an effort it's better but that was a bit of a scrawl because they were just notes to remind myself what I did! I had such fun experimenting with the mother of pearl effect. The project I have been working on is indeed very small!

So glad to know that you are making good progress and able to be creative again. Wishing you all the best for your continued recovery - it's early days yet and one does have to be patient as these things take time, don't they.

Shoshi

Kim said...

So glad your getting back into the groove! I love that tin of bling! Have a great week!

It was so lovely to catch up with you on Sunday, and I'm glad you see you are getting creative again - love the thank you cards, and I'm impressed with the size of your bling box!
Hope you have a lovely week,

Beverley Baird said...

It's wonderful to see you back - and a "messy" desk is a sure sign of creativity!

Love seeing the creativity taking place on your desk! And gloomy weather is the perfect time to play! As to the selfie on my pictures, that's part of my Samsung Galaxy S4 smart phone camera. Came with it and was fun to discover it last year! Hope you have a great week!

Fiona@Staring at the Sea said...

Very happy to see those swirly scribbly dies being to put to good use already. I do love a simply styled card, especially when mass producing. I could see that 'Thanks' being swapped for 'Merry' to make seasonal cards. Not gonna say the 'C' word just yet!

Lea.H said...

Good to see some form of crafting taking place on the desk! I always find that having a good look through my supplies gets my ideas flowing. Good luck :) Lea #43

dmgarafalo said...

Annie Claxton said...

HI Julia, so good to see you back and crafting again, those little thank you cards look really sweet too. I'm bracing myself for a craft room clearout this weekend ... makes me shudder to think of it but something has to be done! Take good care of yourself :o)xxx Annie C #47

Small, colorful, bright 'dots' (stickers?)... I bought me some last week and how lovely to see something simular on your desk! Enjoy the good times Julia! Thanks for your visit earlier this week, love from the Netherlands, Marit #26

Sue said...

Hi Julia, Meant to thank you for my lovely Thank You card. You really didn't need to send me one. Friends try and cheer friends up and I am glad my card helped. Sue
