What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 454

Blimey. I left for a weekend Crop (it was lovely, thank you) and appear to have been totally in mid flow. And so, when I got home, I just dumped everything on top of and around the desk. You aren't surprised!

I HAD been making some cards to send with the new badges. That accounts for the small white pieces of card. Each has two images on which I painted briefly with the radiant pearls, in the basket at left. There's a snowflake hanging on the door handle. It was on my desk for mending purposes after Christmas. It's just about ready to be put away! My usual ATG and other tapes are missing because they're in the bag on my stool, waiting to be unpacked and put away. It's definitely a job for this morning. Note the complete lack of anything vaguely valentine related...it's too late now. Ho Hum.
Show me up then - let's see your desks, mid flow or not, it's all good!

I received my badge in time to wear on Sunday at Stamperama, but it was so cold in the sports hall (unusually) that my scar stayed on all day so probably wasn't visible... but I didn't come across any other deskers. Thank you, and for the card that came with it - that will be some task you have set yourself! Helen xx

Morning Julia. So reassuring to see that someone so young and energetic doesn't immediately put everything back in its rightful places!! :-)
Take care. God bless.

Morning all,
Thank you for the badge and card Julia, it’s even nicer in the flesh. I’m going to show it off next week, it’ll look grand against the piece I’m working on. For the minute it is pinned next to my other one on a bobbin of wool on a shelf in my workroom
The welder has gone off to Essex complete with a bag full of valentines goodies, while I remain here a proper Billy no mates and not a valentines card or chocolate in sight

Hi Julia, I don't fuss about Valentine's Day myself although my son did ask me to make him a card. I will definitely wear my badge with pride when I go to Port Sunlight in May! Have a good week. Sarah #14

Ah so agree re Valentines, Julia.. too much else to do for me as well... waited online till 6:30am your time then hopped off computer and typically forgot to check for another three hours or so..
... and boy did I have fun with my HTML on my post, it fir some reason made it teeny weeny took me ages to get it legible even then all over shop. Prob quite normal that bit ;-) all over the shop.
Happy WOYWW, Julia... glad you had great crop too with your buddy.
Hugs Shaz in Oz.x #16 I think..

I'm glad to hear you had a good Crop, you gadder-abouterer you! Great to catch up on MOnday too. And I'm very pleased that the little Union Jack bag id still going strong, hope the handles are intact after coping with carrying all those contents :-D

Annie said...

Glad you had a good weekend at the crop....just a shame the stash doesn’t put itself away when you get home eh? Hope you have a great week.
Hugs,

Angela Radford said...

Hi Julia, got the badge and card, love them. You certainly know how to make work for yourself but we much appreciate it. However I hope it's not our fault that Mr Dunnit doesn't get a V card! Have a lovely woyww V day and happy crafting when you manage to get the desk clear x20x

Mrs.D said...

Morning Julia, I am so glad I am not the only one who doesn't put stuff away immediately, especially after a nice event like a crop. You need time to unpack slowly and remember the fun and laughter, and the nice comments over the project you created during the day, what suggestions friends made about it, it al need processing slowly.
Enjoy doing it

Anne said...

Hi Julia. Glad you enjoyed the crop. I would have done exactly the same on return if it had been me. I did surprisingly manage some cards and treats for Valentine's Day - enjoyed making them. Have a great week. Anne x #21

My name is Cindy said...

Hello there Julia, I know that desk look, although mine usually looks much worse after class on Tuesdays!! Managed to upload my post this week in record time - must be getting the hang of it!! Happy WOYWW Cindy xx

Shaz Brooks said...

Hi Julia,puzzled by the yellow thing at the front of your desk, lol. Smiled at the snowflake, till I realised it had been mended. We always find one rogue ornament every year that got missed while packing it all away. Love & hugs, Shaz XxX#15 xxXX

Neet said...

Love the bag on your chair - is that a Union Jack I can see?
Wow, so you are sending badges out with cards - what a task you have set yourself - you are so thoughtful.
Glad someone else did not make a Valentine card - I had one from last year - commercial - that I forgot about.
Hugs, Neet 2 xx

Cheetarah said...

It usually takes me a good long while to unpack after a retreat as well but that is how the flow of a busy life goes :) I did a fair good few of Valentine's inspired crafts this year, more so than the other years, but no cards have been sent. Hope you'll have a great day! xox Cheetarah #24

BJ said...

Still crippled with bad back but managed Valentines and birthday card (today also) Nice to see you have mended a snowflake decoration too. Not sure mine will ever make it back to the loft this year!! Well not with my current back situation! Glad you enjoyed the crop - that's all that matters isn't it? BJ#28

AliWade said...

Happy WOYWW. Me and hubby don't really do Valentines, what with it being the day after my birthday (so we normally go out then) and the busiest time of year on the farm. I wasn't going to make him a card, but then wanted to use a cute design that I got from DesignBundles, so I made him an ATC. Just a quick digital design. He can prop it up against his office computer - and eventually it will be lost under mounds of papers! I think I might have started an annual trend - saves on card and energy. Ali x #30 ps I must finally meet you this year - the leather shop in Bath Market might be a good place!

Elizabeth said...

Oh, a weekend crop! How lovely for you, Julia. I won't forget the crop in Wales and would so love to do it all again. I see teetering piles on the left of your desk, not to mention the one on your stool but it's Valentine's Day - not a day to be unpacking and tidying stuff away. Happy WOYWW and have a great week. Hugs, Elizabeth x #31

PS: How can I be earlier posting this week and still be way down in the thirties - it's a mystery!!!

Sue said...

Hi Julia, Glad you enjoyed the crop.

Desk looks as busy as ever.

Happy WOYWW

Kim said...

I'm glad you had a great time. Just like any trip, it takes me at least a week to put stuff away; as if that can make the trip last longer! Have a great week.

Stacy Sheldon said...

Hi Julia, that sounds just about right to me. the unpacking can wait. :) ~Stacy #36

Belinda Fernandes said...

Hey girlfriend! I love that you are keeping it real with the wide shot of your desk. I cropped the shot of my desk for clutter was all around the coloring book. I peeked back at your last post and it looks like you have been traveling - Bath! Lovely photos. I could stare at the architecture and cobblestone roads forever. They are simply a treat for the eyes! Thanks for the visit. I am excited to peek at our fellow crafters' desk. Have a lovely day!

Lindart said...

Sounds like you had a fab time at the crop! And I don't think any less of you for dumping all your stuff - it usually takes me weeks to unpack from things like that! Have a great week, Lindart #36

StampinCarol said...

I think it's more fun to pack for a crop than to unpack. And don't worry about the hearts... my hubby forgot. After being sick for 5 days and finally returning to work yesterday his rememberer is a bit foggy. Hope you have a great day and thanks for popping by!

Shoshi said...

Glad you had a good crop, Julia, and I'm sure we all dump stuff on the desk on our return from such things! Thank you for your visit and your lovely comment - so glad you liked my Distress Oxide background on my hubby's card (he loves it, by the way) - on the Youtube tutorial she just left it white but I thought that was a bit boring. I love my Distress Oxides and I love a bit of randomness too! I'm really looking forward to the show tomorrow.

Happy WOYWW,
Shoshi #29

Vicky Fisher said...

Hello Julia, tidy and creative usually do not mix very well :-) My heartguirlande was still hanging from last year, so I have valentines decorations yeah!Have a lovemy week, see you, Vicky

Heather Marshall said...

Hi Julia, I didn't get time this morning, so visiting before we sit down to eat! You are certainly a busy lady, with the crop and making cards go go with the badges! I confess I made Mr M's Valentine card last year but misplaced it! Thanks for visiting earlier. I will be trying out the 3D folder soon. I only bought one for now, but i was tempted to buy a couple more. Have a lovely week Heather #13

April Story said...

What a mess! No judgement here though. I have a stack of partially finished Happy New Year cards. When is it too late to say Happy New Year? LOL

Dorlene Durham said...

Unpacking after an event is the worse. But you need your tools. Have a great week! Dorlene #37

okienurse said...

Great looking desk! Glad to hear you had a great time at the crop. I have been thinking about organizing another one but trying to wait till it is a little warmer and I have less going on in my life...don't think that will happen too soon though! Have a great week. Hope I can keep up now that the back is healing! BTW...did you see the new spring Origami? too cute! Vickie #39

Annie Claxton said...

Aaaah yes the homecoming dump (??!?!) - we all do it ... don't we??? Saves time between crops if you don't bother unpacking at all :o) Annie C #10

craftyani said...

Glad it isn't only me that just dumps things when they come in. Great you had a good weekend and I hope you treated Mr D for Valentines day if he didn't get a card. Ani #17

Marit said...

Due to an unexpected assignment coming in I'm way late with my visit, ohmy, it's almost Wednesday again! But now I'm here, admiring your desk and the bag that contains the stuff... did you unpack it yet ;) And yes, put away that snowflake... let's not give Spring the idea she's too early ;) Have a great week! Love from Holland, Marit #19

Christine said...

I'm almost better now though so I thought I had better report in to the Desker-in-Chief before I start preparing for my next desk expose!

See you properly on Wednesday, till then please wait patiently ......
