What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 437

Well I'm on it. My real desk is covered in something involving my little sister's birthday, so I can't show ya that. Instead, behold the dining table - tis a workroom extension.....
Me and the Coven are off for a weekend of scrapbooking, deep in the Dorset countryside. So here is the beginnings of getting ready. The photos arrived in double quick time and I laid them out like this last Friday so that I could see clearly and formulate a plan. They are all still there. Not only that, they are a bit more curved now, thanks to a couple of warm days! They are today's priority. Well, till lunchtime, then I'm off to visit my Mama. So whilst I'm doing that, please blog your work desks, link here and let us visit. And don't forget to tell me if you'd like a new WOYWW badge!

I was so busy reading Shaz's post from my reader list, I didn't see the post go live...(mind you, as I had to re-set my whole tv/internet service this morning to get it working I am just glad to be here; you can imagine the disruption to my craft area to get to the socket in the wall!!)
Love your alternative desk and the photos - can't help wondering if you'll get any (never mind all) of them scrapped at the weekend... hope you have a fabulous time. Helen #3

Loving the fabric pattern you have on your table. Photos, seem to be hard to come by. Here in the states to get them printed you use the computer to transfer to shutterfly, then they mail them to you quick service but a process
I've my younger sisters birthday the 20th and got the card started, will be next weeks post. Enjoy a fab time with your weekend of scrapbooking.

Isn't it good to handle real photos rather than flick through them on a machine? Enjoy your coven meet and show us what you did there. Love how we seem to spread to other areas even if we have a dedicated craft room.
BTW rain is forecast for the next two days, what happened to my sunny holiday?

A new badge? What have I been missing these past few weeks, if I qualify, I'd love one please. Nice to see photos at the ready especially as scrapping is my forte and I have actually done a double LO this week - Horrah! Happy WOYWW, BJ#6

Heather Marshall said...

Twiglet said...

I forgot to thank you for the badges you sent with Annie for Max and me - we will wear with pride!! Looks like you have a great photo project to tackle there - have fun! xx Jo #12

Anne said...

Hello Julia. I really should try and sort photos - sigh all I seem to do these days is take them on my phone and do nothing with them :-( Have fun in Dorset . Anne x #13

lisa said...

What a lovely sight, a table full of real photos. They look so much better than all on a screen don't they? You're going to have a lovely time scrapping, but blimey, you're going to be super busy if your are going to scrap all of them.
Have a lovely day
Hugs Lisax #16

Christine said...

You're going to be busy then aren't you?! Hope you reduce the number to take with you so that there will be time to talk etc.
Enjoy your visit to Mama.

Diana Taylor said...

Looks like you'll be busy with all those - I love the process of putting photos in albums rather than keeping them stored on phones and computers. Mind you I've now got about 3 years worth waiting to print out and put into albums - it's definitely a winter job!
Have a great crop,
Diana x #19

Zsuzsa Karoly-Smith said...

The first and most difficult step in the making of a scrapbook album is always the selection of the photos! So congratulations for accomplishing that task! I usually flake out before that LOL. It's because I take too many photos and get overwhelmed by the sheer volume of them, so they safely stay on my hard drive out of sight out of mind. Can't wait to see the finished album! Hope you have a good week, Julia! xx

Tracey said...

Lots of lovely photos :o) Enjoy your crop Julia.

Marit said...

Lovely, all those photos to choose from! I'm looking forward to doing something similar soon... I am visiting a craft-fair this weekend and plan on buying a new scrapbook-album and create a layout every now and then... it's been too long and I have such lovely photos of my grown-up son (you saw that in my blogpost) - it's a pity I stopped scrapbooking a few year ago so I want to pick that up again for memory-keeping. Have fun at the crop Julia, and thanx for stopping by my blog. Hug from Holland, Marit #18

Think you get more satisfaction from looking at proper photos than those on computer. Love the way our work commands the available space. Enjoy your week. Anickoana #14

Shaz Brooks said...

Hi Julia, like a few others, I'm wondering just how many will get scrapped- with or without cake crumbs as embellishments may be the main decision! Seriously, have an amazing time, Love and huge Hugs, Shaz #1- not sure how I managed that! XxXx

Sarah Brennan said...

Hi Julia, I don't envy you choosing from that selection of photos. Hope you are enjoying your visit with your mum. Sarah #24 PS I won't be desk visiting until the weekend as I have so much work to do for school.

Shoshi said...

What a lovely collection of photos, Julia. Hope you have fun over the weekend. Thank you for your lovely comment - I have met Margaret several times and also her lovely hubby John, and she tries to visit if she's down in our neck of the woods. It's funny, there's time consuming and time consuming! Some things I have endless patience for, but other things I think are too much of a hassle for me! For most of those things, I am more than content to admire the work of others! Thank you for your kind words about my cards - I do find them a bit of a chore but once I get going I usually enjoy it better, but my last effort was fraught with problems, mostly brought on by my generally brainfogged state at the time!

Happy WOYWW,
Shoshi #8

Stacy Sheldon said...

Hi Julia, looks like a lot of memories to organize the perspective of having that much room on your dining room table is super though. :) sure, I can change my badge on the blog. Hope you have a nice visit with your mama. ~Stacy #26

Elizabeth said...

Oh, a whole weekend of scrapbooking! How fabulous, Julia. I consider sorting out the photos the best part of scrapping - all those lovely memories to look at. Hope you've made some headway. Hugs, Elizabeth x #27

Kim said...

Have a great weekend!! You remind me I really need to order some prints from some of my journeys as well; if only to have some images saved in case of computer failure. And maybe they'll make it in a scrapbook! LOL!

Lots of photos! I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with them all. Dorlene #29

Lynn Holland said...

You know how it is sometimes and we can’t put our minds to crafting so I’ve shown you a brooch I made some time ago and somethings friends have made
Hoping to get back in there soon xx

Fiona@Staring at the Sea said...

Enjoy your weekend away. Looks like you have plenty of scrapping fodder there to choose from.
