WOYWW 192 - What's On Your Desk Wednesday

Hello Everyone,

It's Wednesday once again - time to show the world, and the head desk keeper, Julia Dunnit, over at the Stamping Ground, what's on my desk today.

Apart from the usual tools of the trade at the back, there's just a few bits and pieces I've been working with. From the left: a couple of ink pads, VersaMark and white embossing powder, a tiny gift card featuring one of the twinchie stamps that come free with the magazine, Craft Stamper, the two little boxes where I store all the CS freebies, gem pinwheels (2 different sizes) and a glue tape. At the front is a selection of cardstock in various shades of cream - looks a bit white in the photo but the pieces are definitely cream - and Kraft. No prizes for guessing that I am going to be attempting to make a card for the latest LIM challenge :) I have a plan :))

For those reading this who have never heard of WOYWW, but would like to know more, click this link for the Stamping Ground and you will find a comprehensive explanation. Hopefully, if you don't already, you will join in - it's not only a fun thing to do but it can be very instructive, informative and inspirational ... that's as well as being a real eye-opener :))

And that is basically it. Service was briefly interrupted this last week when a blood vessel in my right thumb burst - as described in my last post. Happily, normal service is now resumed.

As usual, I will endeavour to get around as many desks as possible - dodgy blood vessels notwithstanding. Thank you to the many of you that visit and comment - I read them all and really appreciate the time and effort taken too.

Wherever you are, I wish you all a very happy WOYWW.

Happy crafting,


  1. Glad to hear your hand has recovered from it's burst blood vessel Elizabeth. Sounded painful :-(
    Hope you can enjoy happy crafting now.

  4. Can't wait to see your LIM entry.
    Good to see you back after your thumb damage.
    Happy WOYWW

  5. I did same to my finger about a month ago - it's a bit weird when it happens isn't it. I think I lifted a heavy chair awkwardly and maybe trapped or crushed my finger but it didn't hurt at the time. Hope you are back to normal now. x Jo

  6. Good luck on your challenge! And watch those blood vessels, lol!!!

    Happy Crafting!

  10. Oh that sounds painful, Elizabeth. I'm glad you are all recovered now.
    You have a very tidy desk this week but I spy those little round gem containers at the back there. They are brilliant aren't they and such good value. I've had mine years and they are still going strong.

  25. Hope Alan feels better soon :) Len had his stitches out today - less than a week of 'mush' to go!!!

    Happy WOYWW. Hugs, Di xx #51

  26. I am glad your thumb is on the mend now. I keep all my CS freebies too, I love them! Have a fab week xx #125

  27. Hope your finger is now recovered enough to allow you to get on with your crafting without too much trouble. Thanks for your visit. I have taken a long time to get back as I am very busy trying to get all my Clarity stamps catalogued and cross referenced on the computer - a major job, but at least I can say that all of them have had ink on them. Once they are done, then I can work through all my other stamps, and cross reference them with the Clarity ones. I was able to sit on my hands while I was watching Barbara Gray this week as I already had several of them. Hope the EM has now recovered too, and have a good week. xx Maggie #20

  28. I'll stop in here, but in truth, Elizabeth, I've been up and down scrolling around. I'm sorry about your thumb! I've had that happen in other fingers and, man, does that ever hurt. I'm glad you quickly recovered.

    Your LIM card and your Snippets card are both fantastic! Hope you have a great weekend!! Darnell #47

  29. Apologies for my late visit, and my haven't you been busy since Wednesday!! Lovely cards and glad the thumb problem is resolved and you can play again. Annette
