What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 489

Well mine's still a mess of stuff, but at least it looks a little more of a productive mess!

The little house/shelf kit thing has been pushed back and will probably end up being re-filed for another time; I consulted my diary and realised that I need to be doing stuff other than faffing for a while! There's a pile of cards in cello bags that form part of my kits for this year's Marython. I need them to be finished this week so I can concentrate on getting other stuff sorted. It's all a matter of prioritising the deadlines! 
The box of Sharpies was there because I needed to address a parcel earlier. There's bag of Dolly Mixtures.I bought them to take to share with my Mama when I visit, but they were on my desk and so I opened them yesterday. Fortunately, I have a conscience and did manage to save her some! 
Hanging from the arm of the light is the result of my first Christmas workshop..look, I made a bauble. Horrid photo, but I deserve it because I'm showing off! It was all done under the direction of the amazing Sandra, in just under 3 hours and 2 cups of coffee.
Come on then Deskers, show and tell. Bet some of you are doing much better than a 20 card kit and a bauble over a week! Please put WOYWW in your blog post title and link here. Lovely.

Good luck getting all the rest of those kits prepared Julia. I do hope that the Marython is a big success. Love the bauble! Happy WOYWW. Sarah #3

Morning Julia. I love that bauble - it's gorgeous - a great workshop make. 20 kits made ready - well done. Hope you manage to prioritize all your deadlines - I'm onto that this week as well.
Take care. God bless.

the bauble looks fab! hope you have more luck with your kits than I am with my Christmas cards... they've stalled, much like I thought! Helen #4

Claire said...

Although I don't like to discuss the C word till after Bonfire Night, I do so love your bauble!
Happy WOYWW :)
Claire, no. 1 (this is becoming a bit of a habit :D heehee)

Good Morning Julia, I am loving that Bauble, there's nothing like a handmade to adorn the tree and I get so carried away with them each year making them with the intention of giving as gifts but more than half of them end up on my over decorated tree..!
I'm sure that house frame is just waiting for a monumental idea and not being pushed aside as you say hee hee!
Thanks for hosting Julia, take good care & Happy WOYWW.

P.S Enjoy the rest of those dolly mixtures with your Mum x

I didn't even look in your workroom in our visits, too busy making the most of our time together catching up on all the news! Thanks for letting us drop in yesterday, by the time we went the traffic had cleared a bit and it was good to share Rhys' special day with you.
Hugs LLJ 8 xx

Sue said...

Good morning Julia.

Productive mess, yes that sums up your desk:) LOL

Hope your mum appreciates your sacrifice in not scoffing all the Dolly Mixtures:)

Love the bauble.

Hope you can get everything done.

I think you’ve done really well to do a 20-card kit and a bauble, Julia! Love the bauble - really pretty. Hope the workshop goes well, and I’m sure they will enjoy the cards. You’ve been a lot more productive than me this week, anyway.

Happy WOYWW,
Shoshi #10

Annie said...

Sounds like you’ve had a pretty busy week to me. Really love the bauble. Sounds like you’ve had special visitors lovely to share their special time.

Hi Julia, I would like to tell you I've done more but still visiting mum and dad and if that's not enough I've started with Sciatica down my leg so feeling a bit rubbish at the moment but I did manage to go to Doncaster Dome for the Craft show. I do find walking gently actually eases it slightly but standing still for long is not good. Personally it sounds to me as though you've been really busy so well done you. Have a lovely woyww and big hugs, Angela xXx

Hi Julia, well, 20 card kits is definitely a huge achievement! Go you. lol. Loving the bauble, seen lots of them lately, but resisting for now, as I know they'd just not get made before Christmas! How about we start a thing for Easter Baubles? Love and Hugs, Shaz #6 XxX

ShazInOzCardsCalligraphy said...

Mm don’t think I’d ever do 20 card kits Julia or abauble either. I’m really good at making messes but not good at cleaning them up though I’ve decided.
I also glad you saved some sweeties for mumma. My visiting will be delayed. Two friends needing time, one with her darling mumma fading so they come first. .. but planned to do really well .. glad had post done.. have great week prayer hugs, Shaz.x PS thanks for email. Plan to reply .. soon. Xxxxx

Angie said...

Happy Wednesday Julia! I do so love your bauble! It is adorable. There is something so special about handmade ornaments, they make a tree more personal I think!

Elizabeth said...

Well, Julia, I can safely say I am not doing anything like as well as your 20 card kits and a fabulous bauble! Nice save for your mum but you could always pick up another bag before visiting her - just encouraging. There's not much to show on my desk this week but I've shown and told - and that's half the battle. :) Have a great week. Hugs, Elizabeth x #22

Kelly said...

Your desk looks very productive. Love the Bauble. Gave me an idea. Mine is worse than yours and the result of book promotion stuff. Creative, yes? cardmaking/ stamping? Not a bit. Dose plenty of gluing count? LOL Missed you, Miss Julia. I think I'm back for awhile. Hugs & Creative Blessings! Kelly #26

Belinda said...

From one productive clutter to another, I like what I see. Especially your bauble. Every year, I buy the supplies to make one and then forget about them and then the season passes and I say, "Maybe next year!" Don't ask how many years I say this or how many of those clear balls I have accumulated.
Have a blessed day my friend!

Christine said...

Just love that bauble - I love all things Christmassy and home made!
Well done for completing the kits - you've been more productive than me.
Have a good rest of the week

Oh my goodness, I love the bauble. Christmas is just around the corner and I have not done one thing! Have a great week. Dorlene #28

StampinCarol said...

Hope you get done what needs to be done when. Love the bauble! That is just too cool! By the way, I probably would have purchased 2 bags of goodies.. LOL! Have a great week!

Stacy Sheldon said...

Hi Julia, the ornament looks fabulous I am totally impressed. ( it probably would have taken me a gallon of coffee and a lot of handholding lol) :) ~Stacy #32

Belinda Basson said...

Well hello there... Yes I am still alive! Yes I am still crafting... but real life and blogging isnt too complimentary at the moment... I just saw that I last posted on my blog on 17 of September 2017! Good grief! Were did a year go? Glad to see lots of the usual suspects still Desking. I miss it. I intend getting back to it. Just thought I would drop by and say hi!

Heather M said...

Hi Julia, so sorry I'm late! I love the bauble - very impressive! Well done on the self restraint for not scoffing all the dolly mixtures. They wouldn't have stood a chance on my desk! 20 card kits is good going - hope the Marython goes well. Have a lovely week Heather x #33

Marit said...

Oh yes, deadlines have priority over doing fun things... I have some of my own right now that I should work on, instead I'm viting you! Oh well, there's some time left and a girl needs some destraction sometimes *ha*! Have a great weekend lovely one, love from Hollan! Marit #18
