What’s On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 646

Well now, gentle desker. You join me in a week of doing. Oh my word, you do. For a start, look at my desk….
Horrible afternoon light yesterday. I was in my workroom looking at stuff. Stuff I need to pack. Hang out the trumpets, ring out the flags…I am going away with The Coven for a weekend of scrapbooking. Any pages that I make this weekend will be the first pages of the year, I think. So anywayyyyy…I’m meant to be using free time to pack stuff and try to pack economically by really thinking it through. Yeah well, that doesn’t seem to be as much fun as stamping and colouring in! Back to Janet Klein images. I got a new border stamp set and I felt the need to use it, and one thing always leads to another, doesn’t it. I may not have done any sorting or packing for the weekend, but I had a nice half hour! 
Thank you Helen…liquid appliqué is absolutely what I was trying to remember for the previous post…it just wouldn’t squeeze out of my memory! Brilliant you. Have a great day full of lovely half hours won’t you; start by blogging and showing us what you’re currently will be a marvellous interlude.


  1. Yay! to your weekend away with the coven - I shouldn't worry about packing, we all know you'll just chatter and natter!! Great images you've been distracted by. Glad my memory aided you - I noticed Neet was able to recall it too. Us oldies are useful for something!! Have a good week and a better weekend! Helen xx

  2. Your desk is looking fabulous, I must say. As to the gnome beard, I can on,u recall in the USA puffy paint, but not sure it was as fluffy as that stuff. Enjoy your colouring as I’m off for a job. I usually would say I’d prefer the colouring but…
    Happy Woyww!

  3. Good luck with the packing and enjoy your weekend away with the coven Julia. I am sure you will have a great time but not sure how many pages will be made lol. Stay safe and Happy WOYWW. Sarah #3

  4. Packing etc is always best done at the eleventh hour, that’s the rule isn’t it?! Have a wonderful weekend away and hope the scrapbooking is fun!

  5. Wishing you a wonderful weekend!
    Love the framed notice board on your desk and very envious of the pens...
    Happy WOYWW!

  6. Hope you have a wonderful weekend and that last minute packing all gets done.
    I’m here in name this morning...I needed some normality amongst friends.

  7. Sounds like you're going to have a fun weekend. Hope you're not like me because I usually forget the important stuff, think it's the excitement that goes to my head Lol! Wishing you a very happy woyww too. Hugs, Angela x12x

  8. A coven weekend sounds ideal to me, nothing like away time with the girls. How much sleep do you get on average?
    Loving the pens you use to colour in your JK images, I am always on the lookout for the perfect colouring tools so would love to know what you use.
    I actually painted a card the other day - rediscovered my Caran d'Ache.
    Have a great weekend.
    Hugs, Neet 6

  9. Oooh coven time, fabulous, enjoy.

  10. Hi Julia, are they the watercolour pens or the markers. I keep looking at the watercolour ones - the set of 98! I find packing stuff for a weekend of craft almost impossible- how do you know what you will feel like doing? Next year I have to seriously cut down on the craft stuff I take in the caravan. I did try this year :). Thank you again for sending the Christmas pad. Angela #10

  11. LLJ’s right. Pack at the last minute! Hope you have a great weekend away with your Coven.
    Take care and happy WOYWW

  12. I think its been so long since people have been together that I'd bet there may be more conversations and hugs going on then page finishing. ( maybe just do one or two page kits? and not a whole I am going to work with my nose down and finish half an album packing job?) just a thought, I'd rather be coloring too. :) ~Stacy #21

  13. Enjoy your weekend if crafting and look firward to seeing the results.💕

  14. Yay for a weekend of crafting with like minded people! Have a wonderful time. Your distractions are such fun, love the colouring. Happy WOYWW. Take care and stay safe. With love & God Bless, Caro xxx (#14)

  15. Hi Julia!
    Packing anything for any purpose is work. Coloring is much more fun! Hope you have a productive weekend! Creative Blessings & Hugs! Kelly #22

  16. Hi Julia! Very crafty desk today! I'm glad you managed to get some fun into your busy day! Have a great week, Lindart #23

  17. You sound busy as always, Julia. Thanks for your visit (and last week's too) - I had to look up MCM because I didn't know what it was, and there were loads of choices till I found what I assumed it to be! I know what you mean - the sort of shapes you'd see painted on the sides of VW camper vans in the 1960s.

    Happy WOYWW,

  18. Just came back re your comment on my post - having looked at the photo again, I am not surprised you can't see a cityscape - the piece of paper I added to the photo to show the design better.... was upside down! it's meant to be a silhouette of the skyscrapers and a watery reflection... please look again whilst standing on your head!!

  19. Desk is looking very organised, and those markers look great sitting there with all those colours. Hope your SB weekend went well. So sorry, RL got in the way, and I am terribly late. Happy belated WOYWW! Elle #11, EOTC


Your contribution is a valuable thing - thanks for taking the time!
