What’s On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 510

Oh what a week. Please forgive my epic fail on the visiting; it was on my list but I was asleep in my chair before I could start browsing. Busy days. But its calm now. She says, knowing that saying it in writing will probably nobble the calm! So today...look, a bit tidy, 

I’m taking part in a scrapbook LO challenge and had picked some papers to muck about with while I was on the phone. On hold. The Colour Wheel ink pads are from my scrapbook ‘to go’ bag, easy to pack and space efficient. See the big old chisel tip glue pen lying there by the deckchair? Treasure that is...I use them to re-tack my scan’n’cut mats. It’s a Zig, and they are not as easy to come by as they once were. Although clearly if there’s a shortage of double sided tape, I will be able to help you out, judging from my collection at right! So that’s me this morning, I’m hoping it will be a terrible mess by this evening; time will tell! Join in please, show us what you’re doing at your crafty space by linking here after you’ve blogged a pic of your desk. Thank you, I really do look forward to seeing you!

Hope you're not feeling as tired this week Julia. Those ink pads look good, I remember them but don't have any of my own. Happy WOYWW. Sarah #3

Morning Julia. Phew - that was a bit scary - all that open space on your desk - then I read your post and realised it was just sitting patiently awaiting your ministrations. Enjoy!!!
Take care. God bless.

I do hope that you get time to muss up that desk a little, it b'aint be natural! I never thought I'd see a chisel as part of a paoercrafter's kit but hey, there's a first time for everything 😉
Hugs, LLJ 2 xx

I have quite a supply of d/s tape too.. but strangely not much of the width I tend to use... go figure. am enabling again this week (you missed out last week, but not sure my goodies were your style so that's ok!) Have fun making your oh so tidy desk, messy! Helen #4 (went to get ready for work!)

Your desk looks peaceful and calm. Wouldn't it be nice if "Life" was that way more? With the icy weather I've had time to catch up, can't travel so working on paper work for mom...I'd like to know how I got this job. Have a good week, may life be good to you.

It's nice and tidy to start the day Julia, I seem to be crammed in the middle of mine again surrounded by Wip's. I know what you mean about falling asleep, i've only got to park my bum on a chair and my body say's sleep! It's like hypnosis, it's probably why I craft mostly standing up, i'd never get anything done if I sat hee hee!! Hope you get some creative time today & treasure that Zig pen, although i'm sure Tonic do some that size too.
Thank you for hosting & Happy WoywW Tracey #7 (?)

Can't believe I slept in till 7am - guess I needed it! Don't know what it is about double-sided tape... it must breed in the drawer, I have loads too!
Happy WOYWW :)

Happy WOYWW. I hope that you do get to sit down and do some scrapbooking. It is annoying when other things get in the way. I love those inkpads - so useful. Ali x #9

Annie said...

Sleeping In the chair?....now that’s something I keep doing and it’s so out of character for me really. I guess these bugs affect us more as we get older.....roll on Spring eh? I hope you get really messy later.
Hugs,

Lynn Holland said...

I had an enormous urge to sit at your desk just then and play with all your stuff haha.
I’m packing my basket today ready for my PHD (projects half done) day and a day with the lovely Viv Sliwka Of Hens Teeth, so I’ll have plenty to show you next week Julia. Enjoy your scrapbook challenge

Hi Julia, the rest was a necessity I think and will have done you good. I'm sure the desk wont stay as tidy as that for long so wishing you a lovely creative WOYWW, Angela x15x

Diana Taylor said...

Hi Julia,
Loving your clean and tidy desk. I'm glad someone else has a double-sided tape collection - my problem is they either stick too well, especially if I have misaligned something and want to move it or they don't stick at all, such as when I'm attaching a heavy, decorated card topper to a base and it starts lifting off. Perhaps one day I'll find the perfect tape but in the meantime I'll just keep adding to my collection!
Hope you have a great week,
Diana xx 16

Twiglet said...

I too have plenty of double sided tape - I heard Craft Creations was closing down so ordered extra - now I have to find somewhere to hide it er I mean store it! xx Jo

shazsilverwolf said...

Hi Julia, love the shade of blue in that top sheet. I have some Zig pens too, they do a really fine rollerball type one too. And don't talk about DST! I have a mountain, literally. Desperately trying to get to the end of it,preferably before it loses it's sticky, lol. Have a lovely day, love & hugs, Shaz #4 XxXx

Debbie Rock said...

Way too tidy dearest Julia ... as is mine but I also hope to be in a mess by this evening! Phil is currently cutting me some planks of wood & all I need to do is tart them up ... how hard can it be? Love to you, as always. xXx

Marit said...

Dear, that's some tidy desk... make a mess today please and have fun! Those ink pads make me smile, so colorful. Happy woyww Julia, and a big hug from windy Holland. Marit #19

Neet said...

Hope you soon get in a right old mess because that means that you are using that gorgeous paper that is on your desk. What glorious shades of blue.
Good luck with the LO challenge although I don't think you need it, you are a great scrapper.
Hugs, Neet 10 xx

Annie Claxton said...

Hi Julia, I love a scrapbook challenge, I find it really gets me digging through the stash and thinking creatively. Hah! your pile of DST pales into insignificance next to my DST Mountain - somehow, I have accumulated so much that I have three drawers full, one for normal, one for extra strong red tape and yet another for foam tape, oh and one for the refills for assorted tape guns, so that's four really .... don't know how that happened ... a fear of running out, an irresistible bargain, that thing where your desk is such a mess that you can't find your DST so you buy some more .... all of the above :o) Have a great week! Annie C #21

Hi Julia. Nice, neat desk! I hope you are able to get to play today and make a mess out of that neatness! I can't believe that it's Week 510! Congratulations for keeping this going!!

Happy WOYWW,
Kay

Lindart said...

Hi Julia! your desk looks ready to rock 'n' roll! I have a few of those wheels myself, but I don't use them since I started using Distress Inks. I do have some interesting wheels, such as Tuscan colours! I should get them out, the colours all go together! Have fun with your layouts! Lindart #26

Dorlene Durham said...

Your desk looks so clean and ready to get busy again. Have a fabulous week! Dorlene #27

Christine said...

I hope your desk has changed by now ..... lots of glue used!
I am now working with shades of blue .... little circles of it though!!
Have a fun week, sleeping as necessary.

Heather Marshall said...

Hi Julia, what a lovely tidy desk .... thought I had got the wrong site at first! The blue paper is lovely, looking forward to seeing your layout. I have a basket full of DST, it's what I use more than anything. Have a lovely week Heather x #24

Stacy Sheldon said...

HI Julia, since its evening at my house now, hopefully there is a creative whirlwind on your desk now. :)
Ooh I have some similar pads, I have little finger daubers for them as my petal ones died years ago, but I remember being able to lift them out and use those kinds.
