What’s On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 648

Well it’s been a blink week. Good grief, these days are absolutely running away! 
I offer you late afternoon yesterday, lights on, colour a bit weird!  Actually on my not too untidy desk are the baskets that contain the stamps inks and blahdy-blah for each of the six cards that were my share of the day long card marathon. It’s actually over, took place on Monday! a so  Delighted that it was well received and Shopkeeper Gal is responding to demand by offering a Saturday version (limited numbers and lateral flow tests) and we’re also kitting each card for people to buy individually as a response to demand. Amazing, huh. So….the baskets need refreshing and the kits need making up. There’s evidence of my inability to sit near a pen and paper without doodling when I’m on the phone. And evidence at left of not knowing what I’m doing. I coloured a bunch of those figures in rather randomly because I thought I’d just run through my scraps and match them up, but I actually need to select the scraps first, the colours I’ve used are just too random; they look ridiculous close up. So to sum all that up…I’m waiting for the strength to throw those away! Now I’m not sure if I’ve talked about that drawer unit before. It came from RUBox company’s website. On castors, it rolls under my desk with room to spare and houses all my clear stamps,(3 drawers) all my made-and-waiting-to-be-used cards (1 drawer) and drawers to spare! Lordy. That’s a nice brag isn’t it. To make you feel better, I am NOT going to show you the stamps in situ. It works for me but will cause a collective shriek, I fear!
Come on then, if you think you’re hard enough…let’s see the work, the surface and the explanations!

Of course it went well! Lovely to hear tho. Good all the safety protocols were there and people could attend knowing they weren’t putting themselves at risk. So important nowadays. I am loving your desk set up. I have a few rolling drawers under my desks but the old style ones. That RUB one is fab. Enjoy the new area. And have a happy Woyww!

Glad the day was a success and you are offering a Saturday too. I'm glad you have room in your drawers - I am impressed that you have a whole drawer of ready made and waiting to be used cards!! The clocks going back does play havoc with crafting time though, by the time I was ready at the weekend the light was required and bleurgh! (excuse) Happy WOYWW

I'm so glad the workshop went well, although not surprised at all, and it's great that your kits are in demand and another session is being planned. Glad you've got your drawers sorted, and with space left over - that's something that's never happened to me!!
Hope you have a lovely week

Ooh pleased it went well and more kits are needed, brilliant news. Desk is looking good and love the idea of a wheeling storage box much easier than dragging it round!

Neet said...

How lovely that your day went well and there is a request for more - and kits!
I smiled about the colouring in, I deliberately mix the colours up on my figures for my Thursday Journal because it is Dylusion figures and I feel they need to look ridiculous. Well that's my excuse because really I have no idea about colours that go.
Hugs, Neet 12 (these dark mornings!) xx

Congratulations! So glad to hear it went so well that more kits are needed. What a triumph. Love the evidence of doodling on the phone - I'm the same, and I do it in meetings as well, my meeting notes are covered in doodles, it helps me concentrate although doesn't look very professional! Happy WOYWW. Take care and stay safe. With love & God Bless, Caro xxxx (#16)

BJ said...

Ah, I've been away too long, did we ever get to see the cards you prepped or is that going to have to wait till after the extra session? Saw tantalizing glimpses on Facebook though. I doodle on the phone if I'm at my desk too. Nice to have spare drawers. BJ#15

Felix the Crafty Cat said...

Naturally it went as expected but you never know to begin with how things will turn out. Bet you're feeling good about that. My phone doesn't know what doodling is, I must look into it. Have a lovely creative woyww, Angela x17x

Glad your workshop went well. It’s always a bit of a worry beforehand isn’t it. Your desk get’s moved around a lot (that’s why it has wheels!). If I had the forethought to find pen and paper, I would doodle too! Happy WOYWW Angela #14

Christine said...

Always knew you had nice drawers! So pleased your workshop was a success and, in my opinion, kits are wonderful.
Have a good week

As if the card marathon would do anything other than really well, that draw unit is ace, i have one similar, well two actually and because the one i have is kind off modular two became one and the wheels broke so i ended up taking them off.

Good day to you..I posted at 12 midnight and it's 11 am here now only been up a short time. Dark mornings ! I use those baskets for unfinished projects and gatherings of to do projects, so I never have empty ones ! I have several of the under drawer containers on wheels and really love them 15 in my crafty space and 5 in our office. Some of mine have 5 smaller drawers, Now the price has doubled I need to sort out the office ones...never ending Have a great week and enjoy some outside time.

Catriona said...

I’d love to come to one of your challenges Julia-I always seem to be the one doing the prep for other people! Happy crafting.

Shoshi said...

You sound very busy, Julia, and I'm glad your day was a success. Thanks for your visit, and for the tip about the gilding flakes - definitely something to think about! I keep mine in old Chinese takeaway boxes which is a lot better than the little pots they come in, crammed to the gunnels, and as soon as you open them the flakes erupt everywhere! They definitely need to be kept in close confinement or they'd take over the world (like cats with opposable thumbs). Glad you liked my cards, anyway.

Happy WOYWW,
Shoshi #18

I've just got in! One more try! A day of jabs and vet visits and arguing with my laptop for saying 'you're dangerous, run! Wraning Warning!!' Madness. Great desk and wow to the success of your venture! Keep up the doodling!
((Lyn)) Happy WOYWW!? ((Lyn)) last...#24!
