WOYWW - Week 117 - Still Planning

Hello Everyone

Well, would you believe it, another What's on Your Workdesk is upon us? It's been noted by others but I'm going to reiterate ... these Wednesdays seem to come round quicker every week! Of course, it's all Julia, Queen of Desks, fault. The success of WOYWW is down to her ... it was all her idea ... and most weeks well over a hundred crafters participate. Because ... because it's addictive :) If you haven't a clue what I'm wittering on about click the WOYWW logo on the left to be transported to Stamping Ground, Julia's place, where you'll find a bunch of links, join in the fun and start blog hopping round the workdesks of the world.


On my desk this morning there's not much is going on. I tidied up last night after finishing the canvas you can see resting against my chook cupboard ... can't help my self, it's an automatic response to mess ... and spread out some materials I might use today, cardstock, canvases, gesso, photographs, paintbrush in jar, when I've made up my mind what I'm going to do exactly.  The peachy dabber shouldn't be there - it was used on the canvas and should be put away by now. I plan to post more about the canvas later today.

In the background you can see my new pride and joy - the mini shelf unit I painted up at the weekend ... in situ and serving the very useful purpose keeping all sorts of necessary bits and pieces tidy. If you are at all interested you can see on the previous post - link here - how I transformed it from ugly to acceptable.

A short post today ... not like me, I know, but there's not a lot going on really. By the way, by my reckoning we are on week 117 but I see Julia reckons it is week 116!

Finally, I hope those of you who live in or around the path of Hurricane Irene have survived the chaos and destruction she left in her wake (Irene is my middle name so, by association, I've been thoroughly ashamed of myself this week!!!).  And best wishes to everyone else - hope you have a great WOYWW day.

Happy Crafting,

if it's clean and tidy - there's been work going on. I always tidy up but boy do I need to dust... the unit is just fab and looks right at home!

I like what you did to rescue those little shelves, you'd have to pay £20 for something like that in a shabby chic shop - well done!! But...a chook cupboard?? You have to explain...please! Hugs, LLJ x

I love rescued pieces for my craftroom, actually I think those are the only ones I have, curtesy of my DH who has a keen eye and a kind heart!
The canvas looks great.
Happy WOYWW

Thanks for your visit earlier this week, Elizabeth, and sorry it has take so long to get back to you. I have just been tied up finishing off the prettying up of the BluRay and DVD discs with my crafting printer (it prints the discs - just a little extra refinement it has on it). Now I just need to deliver the sets to those that requested them. I love your tidy workspace. Mine looks as though several bombs have gone off in there.

Crafting Time said...

Oh wow what a tidy desk, looking at my table in front of me now makes me hold my head in shame!
This is my first visit to your delightful blog, I found you via WOYWW. I look forward to seeing what you create next week.

Hello Elizabeth,
This is the fourth time I've written to you but Google has foiled my attempts to post the comment. Grrrrr!
I'm glad to be back to our 'circle' and do like to look for the little chook cupboard. Your lovely pink card with the hatted girls is very pretty.
Yours as ever,
Ros.
