What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 472

It's a bit dull this early. My desk isn't exactly over exciting either! 
I've finished this LO but can't quite decide on it being finished. So I'm walking around it for a little while. More old pictures being scrapped here - 1996 I think! I'll need the desk for workshop preps later, so it hasn't got long!  At far right you can see the little tool bag that houses my Scan&Cut tools. Yesterday I went to another training session and decided in my wisdom not to take the bag (or indeed, it's contents. Or indeed, the electrical cable. Huh?). Weird really, what you decide when you're in a bit of a hurry! Of course I needed them all! Anyway, all's well that ends well and I think I've learned a couple more valuable methods. We'll see how long they last in my memory!
Meanwhile, in the real world, my lovely friend Kathy took part in WOYWW via Instagram last week. This is thrilling. So, I decided to join Instagram. I waited till we visited the-child-who-knows-everything and I asked about it. I was a bit amazed to discover that #WOYWW is already a thing and quite a few non-bloggers do it! More amazing, it sounded pretty easy. Well it's not, because my iPad/Facebook/PC and me don't understand each other. But I am going to sort it out. Just as soon as I get more than one hour at home. Which won't be today. Or tomorrow. 
So please, be patient. Whichever way you join WOYWW, please join in today, it's very important that I'm not alone and uninspired!

I have the week as 471 but no matter I am here! I have resisted joining Instagram for the same time constraints as Pinterest... but your desk shows more signs of activity than mine!

Morning Julia. Good looking page - I'm sure you will succeed in deciding on its completeness... All the best with sorting out Instagram - I'm impressed - I confess I don't do anything like that - don't even understand the # symbol they use. I mean, WHY? No-one seems able to tell me...
Take care. God bless.
Margaret #1 - good grief, how did I manage that???

Hey Julia. I'm sure you will figure out your layout and the joys of all these programs to view and fill up our time sometimes to much lol happy Woyww hugs Nikki

I kept refreshing the previous post. Then realized how wrong I was to do that. Silly me.

Wow, I didn't realize you needed tools for the ScanNCut. More to think about when I decide which system is best for my hard earned dollars.

Don't you need a phone for Instagram? I'm so 20th century in that I still don't own a cell phone. I see no need for one, either.

Hope you have a great day with your mother.

Howdy! It sounds like you're as busy as ever, and now on Instagram too. Blessings!

Lunch Lady Jan said...

Caro rejoined as well and was on Instagram too, so I joined to comment on her blog! Hope you don't meet yourself coming the other way, you're so busy...

Happy WOYWW. You need to use Instagram on a smart phone, but can access it on a pc/Ipad etc just to view and 'heart' photos. I am a big fan of it - and pretty much on there daily. When I went to the Scan n Cut workshop I had a lot of anxiety about forgetting something - and when I got there remembered I hadn't put my USB stick-thingy in the bag. Thankfully they were able to lend me one. Ali x #11

Good Morning Julia, it's a little on the dark side here this morning. Not as bright and beautiful as the skies last week.
Looks like you are well on the way of completing another lovely memory page.
I'm not sure I would be able to get my head around the scan and i'd almost certainly forget about the tools too so you are not on your own there!!
I use Instagram when I get a free moment, like most things it can be time consuming but I made an agreement with myself to use it when I had the time to rather than it becoming a chore. It's the better half of FB for me which I hardly use anymore.
Enjoy your day and Happy Crafting and Thank you for hosting WOYWW#471

Good luck with Instagram - no idea how that works - what a dinosaur I am! You sound busy - love the LO. xx Jo

Angela Radford said...

Hi Julia, I must have got it wrong as I thought we were on 471 but you're the boss lady so if you say 472 who am I to argue Lol! I think that's a very sensible thing to do going to classes to learn how to use the new machine. The Instagram thingy sounds interesting but I don't have any teenagers 'Who know everything' so maybe you can give us a clue when you've leant how to use it, surely it can't be too difficult. Loving the journal pages and I'm with you, just have a walk round, leave it a couple of days and then go back to it or maybe next year Lol! Have a great woyww and every other day too actually, Angela xXx

Zsuzsa Karoly-Smith said...

I've got an Instagram account but rarely use it - I have an app installed on my PC but I can't see the point in staring at the tiny screen on my phone - you can't see any of the details! I can see why people like it though - swipe and move on, whereas visiting and commenting on blogs requires a bit more time and effort. Somehow I don't think you can build friendships and nurture relationships on Instagram, which is actually at the root of the long-term success of WOYWW! I might be wrong of course. Will check out #WOYWW just to see! Happy Wednesday, Julia!

Diana Taylor said...

I've been toying with the idea of joining Instagram but will have to get my nephew's help I think - it's about finding the right time to get my head around it and patiently learn all about it. Love the layout, those colours are fab - I'm so into yellow and green at the moment.
Hope you have a great week,
Hugs,

Hazel said...

Btw, what happened to WOYWW 471 - lol? xx

Hazel said...

Oh dear, it looks as if 471 went into the big black hole where my previous comment went - lol! I thought I'd sent you a comment, but it's not here. Ah well, I said that you desk looks organised and productive. Shame about not taking the Scan n Cut essentials with you .. lesson learned. As for instagram, you'll get there ... just a bit more time and perhaps a little help from someone who knows it all - lol! I'm here isfyou want to take a peep. Have a good day. xx

Sue said...

Happy WOYWW

Christine said...

My Goodness! Instagram! My DDs keep on at me to join but I have enough to do without more looking at my phone ..... don't know where it is half the time anyways!!!
Hope you can finish your layout before you have to clear it away ....
Enjoy your week

You'll never be alone on WOYWW Julia! Leaving home without something vital? Yep, check that one. More times than I can count. Managed to leave the house for Download without my walking stick last weekend- beat that! Cue stop at a chemist to get a replacement. Which will now stay in the car, 'cos I'm bound to do it again.I've also gone shopping, for tampons- then got home from Tesco and I have a load of stuff I didn't go out for, but no tampons. I mean, just how can you do that? Love and hugs, Shaz XxXx

Sylvia/LittleTreasures said...

Oh the young can do it all on any type of electronic device or app. Only wish mine lived close by. I'm sure this photo issue could be solved. I don't do twitter/instagram/facetime as I can't keep up with instant messaging/FB and totally don't get messenger requesting to be on all my devices. I am beginning to believe I belong on an island. Just thankful I could partake today. Have a fun week.

Stacy Sheldon said...

Hi Julia, I am on instagram I will have to look for that. ( usually there is a hashtag for things so people can find other projects there) so it would look like a pound symbol with either a word or maybe a #WOYWWnumber? (something like that) I just piled up a bunch of guy cards mostly on my "desk" this week, I have not really been taking the time to make blog posts lately and tend to do dump and run ones.

Monica said...

SO far a bad day no internet tv or phone this morning now back on. I use Instagram for the icad challenge,(index card a day)i look at it on PC and have to post on mobile. Like most people here, I did not spend my youth with a tiny 3x6 screen and have to use a stylus. You also have to remember hashtags. I have mine and icad pinned to the wall behind my desk.
Have a great week

Lindart said...

Hi Julia! Glad to see you are still keeping up with your scrapbooking! I'm sure you will find just the right finish for the page. I will have to check out the Instagram page! Have a gerat week, Lindart #26

Lindart said...

Ooops! Lindart #29 (not 26)

Angie said...

So I'm not the only one doing a little historical scrapping? Granted mine is just from last year, but I do have plenty to get to that is older than that! I guess my wedding from 1995 would be the oldest I've got. Good luck!

Heather Marshall said...

Hi Julia, i have to confess my Scan & Cut has been gathering dust since I printed off my labels for my kitchen storage jars! I never seem to find a nice few hours to sit in my Craft room and play. It's 10 minutes here and half an hour there - not long enough to switch on the Scan & Cut and learn sonething new! Maybe next week .... lol. Have a lovely week Heather x #15

Caro said...

Lovely to see your desk and hear your busy sounding plans. I'm loving the fact you are scrapping old photos. I look forward to seeing the layout when you have decided on it being finished. Yay! I made it for two weeks in a row...still on instagram I'm afraid but I hope to ressurect my blog at some point when I have the time!!. Caro X #37

Neet said...

Maybe next time my friend P comes around he can instruct me on this Instagram thing. I am on it but not a clue what it is or why I am there - or indeed how I got there. I just am sorry to see how much blogging has disappeared - some folks seem content to put work on Facebook or something (and now Instagram?) but I am too old to be bothered and love my blogging. It's my diary.
Hugs, - take care - enjoy your S&C lessons and putting them into action.

Great LO Julia.
There are so many "social media" systems these days - I'd never remember how to use them all LOL.
