What's On Your Wordkdesk? Wednesday 430

This is late afternoon sunshine, taken yesterday whilst I had the thought in my head. I'm still doing multiples and still reasonably enjoying it. At front left are my Moon Sparkle paint brush pens. (The ones that have Wink of Stella printed on them under the labels). They are very much my go to for colouring at the moment. Very much. The landline phone is sitting on top of the Bluetooth speaker, and the heat gun is actually in the way - when I get to it this morning, there will be some reorganising to do. I don't think there's room for 'push back or side'! The basket at right on top of the trimmer and stamp positioner and cleaner pad and probably something else, contains the finished multiples. It's nice to bunch them together, I like to see my achievement! The rest of the stuff is just that - stuff...fall out from doing stuff. No point saying it's because of the five minute here and there thing - you know it's not; it's just the way I am!
We are about to enter the month of the WOYWW Crop, anything you'd like to know, please refer to the page linked above or ask by comment, email etc. It's all a bit exciting really!
Now then, please share the way you are. Your desk is brilliant, your works are inspirational. Put WOYWW in your blog post title and link it here! Thank you!

What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 429

Sorry about the number typo last week. It's evidence of fat fingers and of course, doesn't come up in a spell check, so it took me a while to spot it! Ah well, as long as we're here, no matter the number, particularly!
I'm doing that five minutes here and there thing - spot breakfast! And in those five minutes here and there, I'm trying to batch make cards, 13 each of five designs. I could easily have said 'No' when asked, but it's for the charity that I drew a lot of support from during the brain surgery months, so I'm delighted to. It's forcing time management out of me and that's a jolly good thing. Ho Ho Ho. Under the plate with the toast is my folder of dies and some blank cards. Centre is the unglued prototype of the next design..I'm about to scuff a bit of ink down the sides of the mount, hence the egg sponge. At right there's a tangle of ribbon - chosen and then discarded as a possible embellishment for this card. There's my coffee (it's that early, I haven't finished it yet!) and a mess of bubble wrap. I'm starting to collect it to use in a workshop next week. So that's me! Share with me and some others, will ya? Put WOYWW in your blog post title and link it here. Visiting today will be interrupted by a trip to see my lovely Mama and Sissy. Another nice afternoon, I hope! See you at your place.

What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 429

Well, I'm back from a fab fun and lovely stay in Welsh Wales with Jan. I went last Wednesday morning, so I haven't done much at my desk at all. I don't care!
The penguins that look like badgers are to be cut out and mounted onto silver cards, just like the finished one you can see. That's about my limit for making multiples. I like the image though, so there will be variations, I don't doubt! There's a couple of cut out sausage dog images just visible above the orange highlighter pen. There's nothing wrong with them, so they will be made into cards. I stamped and coloured them as potential images for a workshop card, but coloured a few images in different ways before I settled for another. Do you like the snowflake border die? I do, very much. Bizarre isn't it, in August. And talking of bizarre....

Here's my lovely Jan, wandering lonely as a cloud....the tide was out and the brooding clouds made us feel very small on this magnificent beach. And then the clouds blew away, the sun came out and we forgot about being poetic and insignificant in the face of nature and had another great chatty, walky, fun afternoon. Proof if you need it, that we did at least walk off the cocktails!

I'm sorry for the longer post, I had to brag about seeing Jan. Now, please show us your desks and tell us what you're up to - we're waiting to see. Link here please, with WOYWW in your blog title. Don't forget there's a new logo in the margin or a couple of posts back if you'd like it.

What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 427

Yes! It's got cards and stamps and sticky and work-in-progress type stuff on it! Hurrah!
The light isn't terrific this morning, but at least there's visible proof that I haven't been in procrastination mode all week! You can just see a few strips of shiny bobbly background on the white cards. I made them with the bubble wrap and Pixie Powders and a water spritzer. One of you lovely Deskers had been doing it, and I needed to copy. If only to prove that the Pixie Powders aren't the messiest, most uncontrollable and therefore most hateful product I've tried this year. This technique does offer redemption, I must say! There's penguins, waiting for their glitter pom-poms to dry. And no, that's not a euphemism. There's the ATG gun thingy with the tape broken, about 100 feet from the end of the reel. Really annoying. Mr Dunnit's patience will be required for that. It saves broken tape gun, broken window, hysteria, tears and snot, see.
So there y'are, y'all. I will be visiting from foreign shores. Well, shore. I'm going to stay with LLJ for a few days and so we might well be commenting in tandem!
Have a great Wednesday. After you've recovered from the shock of my productivity, share yours too - link your blog post here, and PLEASE put WOYWW in the title!

What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 426

The staged one....where I actually clear up and show the packets of stamps that you've seen in a clump resting on my iPad deckchair thingy! Staged also because I took the photo yesterday afternoon - I'm up and at it and away early today so don't want to have to encounter publishing problems (which always occur when I'm in a hurry...!)
I don't actually know that the stamps are very much easier to see than last week, but I've tried! Amazing to think that minutes before, and again not long after this shot, it was dark and raining - 'sunny with showers' the forecasters cheerily describe it. Urgh.
So, you can see the stamps are all from Woodware....(I think I'm fangirling Francoise!). One of the reasons they are like that is because I was doing the thinkventory thing. Arrange them in front of me and let them talk to me. Inspiring me for Christmas stuff in the summer requires a lot of rubbery wordsmithing from them I can tell you!
The little striped bag is the only new thing this week, it contain 3 buttons in a turquoise, shell like material. For my scrapbook. Of the American holiday. Sometime.
Show and share then, gentle desker! Oh and...there's a new logo (see previous post) if you're interested.
Cool. See you online!
