What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 149

Considering I've been working at my desk, it's pretty tidy!  You can see any number of different glues and mediums for paper crafting - the small bottle with the pink tip is a notepad cement that I er, liberated from stores when I worked in print.  That of course, was back in the day, before Post Its were invented and people used nicely glued together notepads! I've been working on my altered book (courtesy of Elizabeth and Bleubeard's free course). Which is why the bookchair/deckchair thing is empty..I didn't want Elizabeth to be caused concern about me sloshing glue and gesso about in the proximity of the old computer thingy.  The book is away drying in the conservatory which was the warmest place today.  And the noisiest; hail storms of the variety that makes a polycarbonate roof sound like the ride of the Valkyries! Not a great view really - the white paper pad is actually an Insurance policy that's expired.  It's only printed one side of each sheet - shocking huh.  The lid is not yet on the gesso on purpose, Elizabeth gave me such a good tip for thin gesso that I'm trying it out.  At back of the shot you can see my Stampa Rosa (remember them!) stamp repositioner, a pile of mounted clear stamps on the bottom shelf of my stamp unit that Mr Dunnit made for me, when he built the room. Yep, really.  Can you see my new packaging tape behind the glues?  What is it with all the moustaches!
So, there's no shame, bare all for us and share your desk..no doubt the fascination is seeing what everyone's making, and where you do the making. Join us do - photo your desk, upload to your blog and link here. We'll visit. Slowly probably, but hey, it's what the days between Wednesdays are for! Oh and just to shake things up a bit, this will be the last 1230am BST  post..., I'll make 'em later, gives the overseas cohort an advantage- but just for a while!

Morti said...

Aha! And I got here sharpish...... Amazing what not having to get up at 6.00am will do for ya....

Lynn Holland said...

that Perfect Paper Adhesive looks interesting. I think I will have to investigate that more.
Have a lovely creative week Julia.

Hels Sheridan said...

Moustaches... am clueless, I think I must have missed that one cos everyone seems to want them... mind you, I am sporting a rather special freckles moustache at the moment, I spend half the year wearing Factor 30 on my top lip to stop the freckles merging together, and then get caught out in March lol Looks like a nice busy desk there hun... please do check out my blog cos I has candy for my Sunday Stamper :)

Create With Joy said...

Hmmm... I'm not sure whether I like the luxury of a later post (more time to get things done) - or the luxury of an early post (I can link and get it out of the way and enjoy the evening with my hubby!)

No matter how you slice it - Tues (which is really when your Wed is for me - is one heck of a crazy day!

Enjoy your rounds and thanks for the peek at your desk!

Ramona :-)

MaggieC said...

That is a seriously tidy desk, Julia, considering the project you are workin on. I salute you with serious admiration for that. One little card and my desk looks like the Battle of the Somme has taken place there. Hope your hormonity is not getting you down. We are all (well, lots of us, anyway) are with you on that slide. Have a good Wednesday and the rest of the week. xx Maggie #Not sure yet what number I am, but it is still very early. Night night, sleep tight.

scrappystickyinkymess said...

I'm a night owl, but later?? Oh dear. :) How about a trade? Send mr Dunnit my way and he can build me shelves and the next time you iPad acts up you can borrow dh. Seems fair, no?

:)

Dragon said...

I am liking that very tidy tidyness this week... that pad is really imposing. I want to know how all those peeps were already on the link when I was popping in all the time to get higher up the list!!! Beats me... oh well... off to bed now
Love and light
Frankie

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

I have the slowest internet connection around. So now I will have to wait even longer to visit on Wednesday. Could we get a hint as to the time you will be posting?

Glad to read you are working on your AB. I can't wait to see which glues you feel work the best (and not AGT tape, either). Must also see how you like gesso. I learned that this new gesso I got is a lot thicker than my last thin stuff. Not sure I like it as well, since it seems to crack when dry if I put it on too thick.

Have a super WOYWW from # 9 this week!

JoZart said...

Sounds like so much is going on there or has already gone on, yet it all looks so tidy and neat. At first I thought that was a mousetrap at the front until a second look makes me think it is a large peg clip thingy!!
Love JoZarty x

Shoshi said...

Pretty tidy desk, Julia! That huge pot of glue is awesome... What is the tip about thin gesso?? I'm up to my elbows in the stuff at the moment.

I really appreciate the 12.30 a.m. start because it means I get in near the top of the list! I get up so late that I miss the boat sometimes!

Hop over and see my new blog background - work in progress but what d'ya think?

Happy WOYWW and thanks for all you do for us.
Shoshi #18

Sarah said...

I'm concerned - that desk is verging on OCD for a WOYWW flaunt. Crikey, that was some policy, did you once own Buckingham Palace... Quite like this view - get to see some stamp laden shelves...!

Neesie said...

Busy, busy Julia...there's something about a blank white crisp sheet of paper that makes me hyperventilate!
Maybe that's a little too much information.
Happy WOYWW Neesie #9 (whoohoo):D

Di said...

Bit too tidy for my liking Julia - them hormone-ities affecting you today?

Glad you're going to change the time of WOYWW - I'd cottoned on to the 12:30 thing and was becoming a bit of a saddo sitting here with fingers poised! Now I can toddle off to bed at a decent hour and stop trying to beat my own record!

Have a great WOYWW!

Di

Lisa Richards said...

Glad you are working on your AB. Maybe I'll be inspired to do something in that department. I'm going to do mine on my own so I can follow my own pace, but it's fun to see what others have achieved.

Have a great week!
Lisa #21

Angie said...

Oh so nice and tidy! I think I actually see wood lol! Thanks for the peek!

Joynana said...

Hi Julia, I am back for another fun filled week. Such a very large container of adhesive and so many varieties. I wish that I had time for any class. It sounds like fun. #26

peggy aplSEEDS said...

hello, Julia, you've had me scrambling to get my post up and thinking of taking my picture on Tuesdays! i love that blank paper pad. so many possibilities! and that big jar of perfect paper adhesive. is it really perfect? wow! happy WOYWW!

Lavinia said...

OOOOoo what a great big jar of glue you have! Your desk looks positively tidy this week! I have not & will not tidy mine till all six cards have been created this week!(Honest)

Amy E said...

Your desk always looks like there's so much fun happening on it!!! Thanks for the peek!

I got the lovely WOYWW badge you sent!! It's on my desk in the pic of my mess. I think I'm going to use it for a Where's Waldo sort of game each week!! Fun!

Elizabeth said...

Like the camera angle today - and your desk is looking oh so tidy too. Love your cherry desk tidy thing - very cheery. That is some insurance policy ... did you read all the fine print :) I'm impressed with your progress on your AB ... I'm trailing behind by a long way :( A later start is going to suit me fine ... I'll get to bed at a decent time instead of burning the midnight oil. Happy WOYWW to you. Elizabeth x #27

Astrid Maclean said...

My first time here, all looks very exciting and great!
Something went wrong with my first linky (24) it takes you to a really old post who knows why.... Can you remove it? Sorry for the mess up but have now linked to the right post 33

laurie said...

I have no experience with stamping or scrapbooking or tag making but I love to see it and how its done, I find it suchj a beautiful and limitless art form, you have the besty stuff, (I sound like such a ggeeek) I just love it.What i do seems so boring I think to others compared to stuff like this, I don't care because I do what i do because its what i love and its me but I loveto see what you all do, just love it!!

VonnyK said...

So many glues and things, I could really make a mess of myself with all that. Just a quick visit. off to lunch with hubby :)
Back next week.
Von #42

famfa said...

Wow what a tidy desk. Great descriptions on stuff. Moustaches? What are they for?

BJ said...

Morning Julia, Sad though it is, I made myself go to bed BEFORE midnight but awoke at 2am and just HAD to turn on the laptop to post my link. Made it to #43 this week :) Nice to see you are going to change the posting time though. I have only just noticed where the time we post is shown - doh!

Let us know if your experiment with the Gesso worked, I have the same one, and it could do with being a tad thicker, not sure I could stand the smell though as I craft in my bedroom!

Thanks - BJ

Spyder said...

I had a huge pot of glue I used at play school...then ordered some for when I left...it went mouldy! (it took about 12 years!) Great hive of doing-ness this week.
((Lyn)) #38 I think

Gabrielle said...

I love the hooge pot of glue! Looks like you can use it forever! I also saw those wooden stamps on your shelf and love the (upside down) pocket watch! Thanks for hosting! You are a star!

Darnell J Knauss said...

Pretty tidy, Mrs. D! It's so nice we have the know-how to make two-sided papers now. I've reams of the old one-sided from the office that I use for cleaning the stamps. I'll be a goner before I ever use it all! Have a terrific week!

Charlene said...

Well I do believe the world has come to an end...I got in on double digits AND your desk is clean...but mine's not.

That is one heck of an insurance policy, lady friend. All legalese I'm sure telling you what they WON'T cover.

Happy Wednesday, Julia!

SuziesImaginarium said...

Tidy indeed! I love glue...all kinds of glue. I was one of those kids who ate the paste at school, I can still remember what it smelled like! Thanks for another fabulous WOYWW!!

trisha too said...

I can't believe it's Wednesday again already.

Julia, your desk IS pretty tidy!!

:)

Sylvia/LittleTreasures said...

Trying to stay awake and read all the comments!! There's more to this than just seeing the workspace for me, I enjoy the humor too.
I'm not that witty in the PM..great projects. thinning GESSO..have some new will have to see how it works. Have a great WOYWW

NEEDLEWINGS said...

Wow, I am staring at that big bottle of perfect paper adhesive! Looks like an I wish I had stuff! lol

Hands to Work, Hearts to God said...

Hi Julia, sometimes I wonder what all the fascination is with these less than tidy desks, but then you go into detail aboutthe things on it and I'm hooked! Patsy #32

Joanne said...

Just look at the size of those tubs. I've been awake since 1.55am, it's now 5.44am - I need some sleep.

Sue from Oregon said...

Two things that I am dangerous with...glitter and glue. I can make the biggest mess with either...imagine with I use them both??? LOL What's the cherry thingie on your desk?

BumbleVee said...

Look at that....60 people already ...and it is still Tuesday night here in Canada...hahah.a...I'm off to bed...you'll have to check back with me tomorrow.... I suppose I'll be about the 150 mark again....

Sandy said...

woot I made it in under the 100.

Jeremy and Samantha said...

Only you can make an expired insurance policy into a piece of art and now I need to know the gesso lid off trick?? Happy Woyww #59

sandra de said...

Now that is a big bottle of adhesive and I can see the moustache tape but I did spend 5 minutes staring hard at the screen. I have come to a little pause with my altered book so it is good to see where other woyww's are up to. I appreciate the 12.30 start but have never been able to get anywhere near the top 20 so I don't stress just post when it suits. Have a lovely woyww.

kath said...

wow julia...I'm a little bit shocked it's looking fairly tidy and am intriqued by that huge bottle of perfect paper adhesive...a sweeping statement indeed...happy WOYWW hugs kath xxx

Helen said...

Such pots of glue... that is some PPA... I have that brand of gesso too, it is soooo thin!! However I don't think I could stand the smell if I left the lid off, I haven't even torn the foil all the way off.... am falling behind on my AB homework! I woke in the night later than normal so I am only 39 this week (if only, ha ha!) Have a good one.

Jo Capper-Sandon said...

Two weeks into this Julia and I'm hooked!
I'm hoping to be entered in for the 'BIGGEST MESS AWARD'
lol

My name is Cindy said...

That's a big tub of glue!! Great view of your desk, don't think I've noticed the stamp shelves before. I think I see a peek of our national flag as well! Have a great WOYWW.

Annie said...

That's one busy desk this week Julia. It sounds like you have been very creative. I'm pleased the early risers in UK will get a chance at getting there first for change...it def makes a big difference with foot fall on the blogs.
Hugs,

Kate said...

mamapez5 said...

That's the tidiest I've seen your desk Julia! The pot of paper adhesive is huge! I don't think I use any glue in that quantity.Thanks for giving us a peep. Kate x

CraftygasheadZo said...

Wow you're super busy, all that glue, thinning Gesso? Hmm haven't a clue about that! I saw moustaches, though thankfully am not sporting one of my own....yet! Take care Zo xx 74

Sherry Edwards said...

Your desk looks intriguing Julia - looking forward to seeing your altered book. Must get back to mine once everything's back to normal!

Sherry, number 73 (or thereabouts!) x

Marie said...

Wow, like everyone else I am impressed with the tidyness! When I am working on something my table always looks like a tornado's been through!

Craftychris said...

Your desk is so tidy today! What is the tip with the Gesso please? How long should the lid be off? Mine is thin too. Would love to see the book when it is finished xx

Queen Of Toys said...

Julia,

That is one really big pot of glue and your desk is so tidy, I applaude you for the mammouth effort considering the job you are doing. Anyways I have just uploaded my desk really early this week as I am about to get some sleep as I am working a week of horrible night shifts, but hopefully i will find time to surf some desks. LOL

Doone said...

I also tried to read the fine print on the perfect paper adhesive,
now my eyes are watering,

must find my glasses before I blog hop,

Twiglet said...

Looks like you are going to be busy Julia. Thanks lots for my fab badge - a lovely idea. x Jo

Candace said...

Pretty tidy desk if you ask me!

Ann B said...

Now that's what I call a glue pot - how big is it? Are you going to share the work on your AB Julia - pretty please.
Pleased you are going for a later start as I was slowly but surely slipping down the list (and up the numbers) as I go to bed at 10:00 these days. Mind you I did wake up around 4:00am so got up and linked in - how sad does that make me - then back to bed until 7:00.

Bridget Larsen said...

Love that white sheet of paper, cant believe its got printing on the other side and its huge. or is that an optical illusion, and that jar of adhesive is humongous, its a big as our ipad lol. I cant believe I am 102 lol never been that low, or high in number

I did Elizabeths course a while ago - it was fab and taught me so much, the book I did is still my most favourite ever project I treasure it x

Liz Black said...

Oooooh look at the lovely big pad of white nothing-ness ready and waiting ... makes you want to dive straight in. Week 2 of WOYWW for me and lovin' it, lovin' it, lovin' it!!! I've found amazing talent, great ideas and the realisation that I'm not alone in this crazy world of arty-crafty-messiness. Thank you all for sharing ... Liz Black (it's saying 102 but that can't be right cos Bridget is 102 .... well thereabouts anyway)

okienurse said...

Busy looking desk with all the glues and paper there. Care to share the secret for the thin gessos. I bought some black and put it on a white canvas and after two coats it is starting to look black! Hope you have a great week. Vickie @106

Annie said...

Hi Julia I am a new blogger and new to WOYWW. Your workspace looks great and I can see that you are still crafting. I tidied up yesterday because I had to or I would not be able to move around today. Getting ready for Hels Sunday Stampers and Simon Says Stamp challenges. I must think about some shelves, its great that your OH is good at DIY. PLease share the Gesso tip ?

Happy Crafting..........Annie x

Carolyn Phillips said...

That is the same gesso that I buy - would love to know the tip about leaving the lid off? The Perfect paper adhesive looks interesting, is it a wet glue like PVA? Love the size of the bottle.

TeddyBobCrafts said...

Lots of sticky stuff on your desk. I am surrounded by pieces of ATCs at the moment. I actually attempted to link this at 6 am (would have been # 67), but for some reason it failed. Only just noticed, so hope it has worked now. Ali x # 117

Hi Julia thanks for popping by mine today - the printer is running hot right now - hope I don't run out of ink!! It is one of those Ive started so Ill finish moments!! Loving being in the WOYWW gang. Helen 35

Scrappydiva said...

Hi Julia!

I'm so excited to be joining in today! I've got a nice, shiny, new space to show you. Let the crafting commence!!

I wonder if you could tell me... how do I get a WOYWW badge? I've seen a one or two mentioned on various blogs and I'm wondering how to get my hands on one!

Speak soon

Laura said...

I've heard good things about PPA -- will have to pick some up sometime, especially if I get more into mixed media projects. Good for you, using up the back of the insurance policy. Despite my reminders of "reduce, reuse, recycle" my little girl is never crazy about using the back of things. She prefers to snag fresh printer paper of the tray. Happy Wednesday. ~ Laura #124

Becky said...

I love the different view of your desk this week!! I must say, I'm feeling rather sticky after reading your post though :) #123

Whimcees said...

Hello!

So many interesting things again on your workdesk! I look forward to seeing your finished altered book - I have never made one. I am always in awe of how many have left their blogs to view already in the morning! It is only 8:30 am here in WI and mine is #131 and no doubt many more have been added while I am typing!

Wishing you a happy day!

Hugs,

Barbara Diane

Susan ~ Killam Creative said...

Ooh, a different view - me likey. Now that is a big, beautiful vat of PPA!

As to posting time... Really, it's your game and I'm just here to play, so it doesn't matter that I'm always around #130. :) It's good company, no matter where I find myself!

Cheers,
Susan #130-ish

Danielle said...

I am not sure I get the moustache trend, but I am sure I will try it at some point. All I think about when I see one is Tom Selleck back in the day. lol... I am not playing this week, as I am on the couch due to my back, but hopefully I will be back next week no matter what time you post.

TeddyBobCrafts said...

OMG - I cannot get the linky thing to work. Have tried 4 times. It takes my details, puts my name on the list - and I can even click on that and go to my blog. BUT when I refresh the site, my name has disappeared again. Given up, as I am sitting in a carpark in town (where I can get 3G signal) and need to get home. This is the link to my blog post, if anyone wants to visit or if Julia can add me to the list.

Hi Julia, I can see rubber stamps on a shelf in your picture. I love seeing people's display of stamps. Maybe I will 'share a shelf' next week? Jane #138.

Est xxx said...

It's my first time be gentle with me lol ;-) great idea x

pat said...

I am never early; not sure why, except that I have a morning routine. ie.
yoga, meditation, exercise, that I do before I hit the air waves.
I guess that is the reason!!
I can't wait to go see what everyone is doing. Your desk is relatively neat!

Princess Judy Palmer said...

Lots of open space on your desk today. I love the multitude of adhesives. You need a variety, for sure! I'm proud of myself for remembering to change it to pop up comments today.

Scrappekatten said...

I like your bad weather, its make me feel better because it was snowing here until last sunday...

KAT said...

very intersting ! I love using those various mediums like gesso and pastes and gels.

Bugged Designs said...

A tidy desk from you this week, but glad to see you are still keeping busy. Shall we be expecting to see some moustache creations soon? :) (Not playing woyww this week - been too busy with the easter hols to get myself organised enough to blog!)

Sarah Anderson said...

that's one fabulous pot of PPA!

Anne said...

Quite a tidy desk you have there Julia but certainly more of interest then on mine. I have never heard of gesso before never mind the 'tip' everyone is asking for. Thanks for sharing. Anne x

Cynthia Eloise said...

A tidy desk! amazing especially with all the gluing.
Where did you get the big pot of perfect paper adhesive and is it?.... perfect

Raven's Rest Studio, Jennifer Conway said...

haha - I don't quite understand the moustache craze either, but I sure love your packing tape! Your outgoing mail/packages must look super fun! I like your cherry "paper scrap catcher?" too!

Sheena said...

Loving your busy looking desk - all that glue looks like you're having/gonna have fun!
We've had the hail over here in N. Ireland too - I had to almost stop the car yesterday when I was out driving for fear that they would damage my beloved mini!

Happy WOYWW!

that is the biggest tub of PPA I have ever seen! Look at that fresh canvas all ready to go and a clean desk, inspiring!

Mary said...

Your desk looks soooooo creative. I've never seen a bottle of Perfect Paper Adhesive that large. I'm going to have to take a photo of my stamp positioner... Not a Stampa Rosa, but it looks like they could be related. It's one of my favorite tools. That makes it favorite tool number 1000, I guess I just love them all! Have a wonderful week...

Your desk is quite tidy considering the projects you are working on! Like the view of the shelves! Hmmm, would Mr Dunnit like to have a trip to Canada and help build some shelves here, lol!

Sorry for the two comments. I got distracted by a phone call and didn't see that it would be moderated. Please delete the first one. Thanks!

Not sure I had an advantage I forgot it was Wednesday as OH went to work, I had it in my brain it was Tuesday and posted woyww on Thursday, I'm really messed up this week lol. Love the deck chair thingy weird I never noticed it before, and a fab idea using the insurance booklet, might check out mine. As I work from home I tend to have A4 mistakes so I put them on the side of the craft desk and use them as well as my mats for catching glue paint etc. Happy woyww Kerry x
