What’s On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 673

Now then, (as the Yorkshire branch of my lovely family often say, to start a conversation) there’s a lorra business to be done this morning, please bear with.
My desk has seen no tidying, but some action. I had a lovely video chat with Lunch Lady Jan and whilst she made woolly balls, so I started on my cards for May. Safe to show this, the recipient probably doesn’t even know I have a blog, also safe to say that this is how I left it after Jan and I finished chatting, and I haven’t been back to it yet. That’s part of today’s plan. Darnell will be pleased with me though, this stamp is an age old NBUS! 
In other news, it’s the 13th anniversary of WOYWW on May 18th. I know that’s only 3 weeks away and I’ve dropped the ball in terms of giving notice, sorry. But, if you’re up to it, I’d like to do the ATC swap. Usual details, which I’ll describe in a separate post to save repetitive reading for many of you! I’d like to propose a theme, just to throw a loop in the ribbon. CONNECTION. Connect, connecting. Apart from the crafting, it’s something we do rather well, huh! 
Now, whilst you absorb all the horror of a themed ATC swap, please show and tell about your desk. It’ll help. I’m almost positive! 


  1. Only 3 weeks to the 13th anniversary Julia - how fabulous and thanks for all your hard work over the years. Not sure I will manage ATCs but will still be celebrating on the day. Stay safe and Happy WOYWW. Sarah #2

  2. Well I'm definitely up for a swap, will get my thinking cap on - fast! Have a very boring workspace to share this week I am afraid. Happy WOYWW

  3. Dear Julia Queen of Desks, yes am back in quick few weeks..
    And not a month or two. Trying my best to join more often because it dies my heart much good, do read your posts in interim and some others too, as time permits. Your very been much in my thoughts and prayers these last few months.

    Mmm a themed ATC now that’s really stretching it.. it may shock you but the only time I make ATCs is for WOYWW anniversary. I’d like to try .. and keep all the balls of life in motion as well, but we’ll see if that ball stays in the air to be done or vanishes out on sight and good intentions. Will know in a week as they take ages to do for this duffer.

    Thanks for Sharing so faithfully each week, God bless and keep you safe, and all those you love,
    Giant prayer hugs, Shaz in Oz.x

  4. I like a challenge so when it is a better hour for me to think I will do so. Three weeks to think about an ATC will do me good. Maybe I can find an NBUS on the way and use it, you just never know.
    Hope the number 13 is good for everyone - now maybe a black cat could connect somewhere.
    Hugs, Neet 6 xx

  5. Well! You know I like a challenge don’t you? I’m chuckling cos it’s ‘one of those days’ for me when I really don’t know where to start πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ I won’t be making ATCs today lol I will put my thinking cap on though and hopefully I will come up with something.

  9. Good morning Julia, its a quick drop in for me today before I carry on with the business of Mum’s impending move to her retirement flat on Saturday. I’m hoping normal service will be resumed by next week but who knows with all that moving and selling houses entails.
    Take care

  10. Morning Julia, lovely crafting going on, and made all the lovelier chatting to Jan I'm sure. The ATC theme is a great idea and I'm already exercising my brain in trying to come up with an idea - this will keep me occupied for quite a while I'm sure!
    Hope you have a great week,

  18. Thanks Julia for a fun post, like the car commercial says "It's so You" I'd say we all just appreciate what you do to make these 13 years rock. You're in charge and we will be excited about the fun things you inspire us with. I thing "Connecting, Connection, is a great idea. I'm in, it's one thing I enjoy in my crafting "ATC's" or "TinY" projects. Have a great week.

  19. Wow! 13 years, quite an accomplishment! Kudos to you, Julia for keeping this going for so long! It is something I look forward to every week, and I feel I have friends all over the world now!
    Your desk looks nice and busy, glad you had a chance to gab with LLJ!
    Have a great week, Lindart #19
