Whats On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 398

I've made a fine mess and a reasonably productive mess too - cards for workshops are on my agenda. The angle of the smaller guillotine suggests a landslide. It's a correct suggestion but luckily I was sitting at the desk and so was able to put my hand out to stop everything - and by some force of inertia, everything did stop and so I left it like that!
Even though I've used it and finished with it, the Visible Image stamp that's lying face up there in the centre is clean. I cleaned it. Now of course I need to put it away, but goodness, if I do all that in the same sitting, even I'll start worrying about me!
The box of coffee pods at right is a box of coffee pods, waiting to be wrapped, with the other box as a gift. Nothing on this desk is waiting to be altered into a coloured version of itself!

The plastic boxes under the coffee pods  are filled with clear and cling stamps. I don't use these often, but am dissatisfied with the storage, so of course, I haven't put them away..the idea being that them being in my way will prompt me to do something....ha!
Forgive me for not visiting at all last week, I was full of snot and sore and now I have a wonky half head of tubes, it knocked me sideways by overwhelming all my working tubes! And also this week, you'll miss LLJ...the next two or three weeks are too full and haphazard in the internet stakes for her whilst she shifts West, so only expect her when you see her, wont you.
So if you got through all of that, take this as an invitation please, to show us your desk. Put WOYWW in your post title and ink it here. Thank you. Oh and put the kettle on... this is meant to be fun..!

Signing in from another fog filled Lancashire day. That's two in a row where you can't see your hand in front of your face but how it stills the air. Peace !
Anyway I've been bringing the house back to life after packing away the Christmas malarkey, which gets on my nerves and I could live without. So no crafting other than throwing a few flower arrangements together.
Hope you are on the mend Julia

Hope you are feeling better now, been a long time since I joined in and it's nice to be in good company again.

Hey, Julia - love your new blog template. I wonder if people have problems posting a comment though? The comment link is missing from the main page. It must be a Blogger glitch - I had the same happen once with the G+ comments. Nice landslide - or rather paperslide, LOL! zsuzsa #14

Annie said...

Hi Julia. I've managed to find a comment box by coming to you via your Facebook link....how strange is that? Love the new look blog...looks like you've Spring cleaned it 😀
Hope you are now feeling much better and able to enjoy life.
Hugs,

Sue said...

Hi Julia, I had a job to find the comment box, but somehow (I've forgotten how) I got it.

Love the fresh new look of your blog.

A busy desk as usual;)

Happy WOYWW

Sat here for a full minute looking for the comment box - I'm soo out of practice LOL! Glad to hear you are feeling a bit better - I, as I'm sure you are dying to know - am feeling ridiculously well (oh I just ignore all the aches). I put this down to limiting my contact withe outside germy world as much as possible and I haven't had a sniffle since November. And NO COUGH. I had forgotten what it was like to breathe without a cough and be able to end a sentence without a cough. So I'm dug in for the duration!! Love your desk, including landslide. That's usually when I decide SOMETHING HAS TO BE DONE. Have a great Wednesday, Cindy xx

JB said...

hi, i'm not sure I like my new guillotine, yours looks much nicer! JB #27

Sarah Brennan said...

Glad you're feeling a bit better. I'm a bit the opposite; I tend to put things away as soon as I have used them, even though I sometimes end up having to get them out again 5 minutes later. At least it gives me some exercise lol! Happy WOYWW Sarah #29

Elizabeth said...

Good to know you are feeling a bit better, Julia, but I hope you are much better very soon. These winter colds are just a pain! Nothing wrong with a productive mess, better than the alternative. I see you have a new look - very fresh and spring like. Wishing you a better week. Hugs, Elizabeth x #21

Helen said...

Glad you got the comments box back! xx great save there!

Arnoldo L. Romero, MLA said...

Sorry to hear you haven't been feeling well, and pray you are soon back to normal. I smiled with your logic of keeping an item out, in hope that it will prompt you to do something with it, since that doesn't work well for me - LOL! Have a blessed week, my friend and give my regards to Miss LLJ.

Sharon Koole said...

Sorry you haven't been feeling well! Please let Jan know that hope her move goes well. It's a lot of work to move everything. Love the new look of your blog - very fresh and colourful.

Happy WOYWW

Your desk looks very busy but somehow I see an order in it. I tend to be a tidier in my scrapping; do a layout, tidy; do another layout, tidy etc. I am glad to hear that you are doing somewhat better. ... Mary-Lou #26

Kelly said...

Happy New Year, Miss Julia.
I hope this week finds you feeling better. Go you on stopping the landslide, though that does still look like an accident waiting to happen hehehe.. Don't cut yourself trying to stop it. In the words of Frozen - Let it Go! LOL
Creative Blessings! ~Kelly #41

Shaz Brooks said...

Aha! Found your comments. I have a guillotine like that, love it. Two bottles of Distress stain, that could have been a very messy landslide!
Hope you are feeling better this week, Hugs and lots of love, Shaz xxx#5

Sylvia/LittleTreasures said...

WOW..I found it. I am amazed at your photo, to see green grass. I hear you on the storage of clear stamp storage, I've now got them by category in the plastic drawer chests under my desk. Drawers remove easily and it seems to work. Old school, but I love my wood. Already warming up and I may get to get out of this house after a 3 day confinement. Enjoy a lovely week.

Sylvia/LittleTreasures said...

I forgot, I really love your new blog design...so clean and fresh, I was changing mine and lost the little box you change the side border, waiting for a reply form the help icon.

Marit said...

I do hope you feel better now... it's that time of year that snot's all around. Good heavens for stopping the landslide... what's in those bottles? Ink? Ohmy... Happy woyww and a big (virtual, I don't have a cold yet ;) ) from Holland. Marit #32

chris boldovici said...

Hello, I lve checking out everyone's soaces on Wednesdays. This is my 1st time sharing, LOL......

Melissa said...

Oh, I do hope you are feeling much better! So glad you were able to prevent the landslide! :)

Yes, it does seem logical that if it's out, we'll be prompted to do something with it . . . eventually.

Melissa said...

I also meant to say that the blog looks so wonderfully fresh and creative!

Lindart said...

I love how you have such a nice view from your desk, and that you have nice light from your window! Your desk looks nice and fruitful this week! Hope you feel better soon! And I like the new look of your blog!

Love your desk, good idea about the stamps .... hope you sort yours before I sort mine!!!
Take care

Kim said...

I Hope you're feeling better! Our weather has been so all over the place that just about everyone is sick. I think the desk is looking pretty tidy for all the creating going on.

Oooh! I know all about landslides on and under desks! Hope you feel better soon! Hugs, Chrisx

Laura (Bookworm) said...

Happy WOYWW, Julia. Hope you're feeling better; it sounds as if you're on the upswing. Good for you having cleaned the stamp -- I have a cluster that need attention at the moment and only laziness has prevented me from doing anything about it. Take care! ~ Laura #56

BJ said...

just to confirm, I had to click on the time when using the main PC to get to the comments section. BJ#34

Bernice said...

Glad to hear you're starting to feel a bit better. When you come up with a good idea for storing those cling stamps please share it - mine are in a filing box but despite trying to label the sections I can never find what I'm looking for.

Princess Judy Palmer said...

Your desk looks just messy enough to happy, avalanche included. I too put things in my way to force myself to do something with them. What I usually end up doing is piling them up and moving them back and forth. Not terribly useful....

Stacy Sheldon said...

I hope you are feeling better Julia, I started organizing my cling/clear stamps maybe a year or two ago... which prompted me to start buying more of them... and so far after getting a Misti made me actually LIKE using them *gasp* I know I have been a very vocal anti-clear stamp person for too many years to count after tossing the first ones I bought at some scrapbooking conventions when they first came out... I think if you do organize yours and get one of those tools that will allow you to re-stamp ( there are more than just a "misti" out there now that are more affordable versions.. that you may just like yours a little more too. ~Stacy #58

Mi Schra said...

Just hopped on over to see what's going on at your space... LOVE your new blog design.
Hope your feeling better ♥

Michelle Reed said...

Hope you are feeling better Julia.
Your desk looks like a productive place this week, even if some of it is just waiting to be put away.
Have a super week!
Hugs,
Michelle

Beverley Baird said...

Hope you are feeling a lot better now. Nothing worse than feeling so lousy you don't even want to create!
What a creative looking desk - a lot going on. Have a wonderful week!

Dorlene Durham said...

Love the new look to your blog. And of course your desk! Dorlene #48

sandra de said...

Loving the new look to your blog. I do like lots of white space. But best of all I am so happy your comment thingy is back. Another thing are you meant to be sharing "About me" with Brooke Banta. Unless of course it's your pseudonym?

Diana Taylor said...

I couldn't find the comments button yesterday so I'm glad I popped back and had another go - never sure if it's the computer or me being a bit dense! I hope you are feeling a lot better now - there's been some horrid stubborn bugs about. Hope you have a creative week,
Hugs,
Diana #20 xx

okienurse said...

I commiserate with you over the snot and head fog! I can't remember a head cold ever being this horrible. We have had it almost a month, a round of steroids and antibiotics don't seem to be helping over much! I have been doing a little stamping and card making too mostly because i am so tired of doing nothing but don't have the energy to do much else. How you are feeling better soon! Vickie #54

Annie Claxton said...

Hi Julia, glad you're starting to feel a bit better now - we've had snot goblins here too, yuk! Love the new-look blog by the way,it's really fresh and bright and inviting. Watch out for landslides :o) Annie C #53
