What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 150


This photo was taken on Tuesday at about 5pm.  It looks much, much worse now. I've finished the card I was working on and without even attempting to tidy up, I started another, completely different, not even for the same workshop! You can see a little easel with WOYWW calligraphed on the canvas...a gift all the way from Shaz in Oz.  The Union flag scrapbook papers are for...something. I know not what.  Yet.  One sheet is in pieces after I made one card.  But I know myself well enough to buy two pieces at a time, so it's OK!  The pile of red boxes right in the centre front are refill tapes for my ATG gun.  I like the 6mm width and they are currently 3 for 2 at 3mselect.co.uk, which is a bargain.  Meanwhile you can see I was listening to BBC iPlayer - Henning, a German comedian who has a show on Radio 2 on Saturday evenings...love it.  
And if you're still awake...here are my stamp shelves...built into the corner for reasons of space and badly in need of sorting.  The sheets of clear stamps on the bottom shelf are looking precarious because I was leafing through them when I suddenly had the thought to take the photo and there was nowhere and nothing to do but dump them! 


We're six weeks away from the third anniversary of WOYWW. (It will be week 156).  Can you believe that?  Well, I wanna know if you'd like to mark the occasion; we did last year and overall it was a great success and some fun.  How about this year we trade WOYWW ATC's? On the day, send an ATC to the name below you on the list.  The last on the list sends to the first on the list so there's a good old loop, and if you don't wanna participate, but still wanna show off your desk, that will be easy too....if you like the idea, mention it in your comment and I'll do a proper 'how to do it' post nearer the time.  Meantime...


Show us this week's desk, work surface...upload a photo to your blog and link here. Please put WOYWW in your title and when you visit anyone, leave a quick comment that includes your link list number....makes it easier for your visitee to erm, visit thee.  I thank you.

Sylvia/LittleTreasures said...

WOW that is a big bookcase and some of the stamps look huge!!The girl in the upper right hand corner?? Maybe my eyes are playing games on me as it is well past my bedtime here. But had catching up to do from traveling. I would love to do the ATC for the up coming Celebrating WOYWW Date.
Have a Happy WOYWW and have fun sorting!!

Neet said...

I am (yawn) now going back to bed for an hour. I got up at before 4 with a bad back, eased off with tablets and sitting straight by about 6 but dare not go to bed then for fear I would miss you.
Love that corner set of shelves.
yes, I would do an ATC - look forward to it.
Hugs, Neet xxx :)

Tertia said...

I have serious envy of the stamp ahelves!
I would love to make a WOYWW ATC. Last year was so much fun.

CraftygasheadZo said...

Wow that's a super stamping corner! Love your union jacks, been digging mine out too, but there not on my desk yet! I love idea of sending an ATC to the person below, definitely have to tell us how it all works as I wasn't part of it all last year, can't believe it took me until the start of this year to find you all! Anyway take care & enjoy this weeks snoop! Zo xx 15

Marie said...

I would love to do the ATC thing to mark the anniversary too! Sounds like fun. I am glad to know that I am not the only one who creates in such a small clear space!! Like you my art table and walls are stacked and cluttered, especially when I am in the middle of creating. I need to clear up! xxoo

Lisa said...

Love the ATC trade idea! Great desk as ever, the new time threw me a bit though!

Joanne said...

Whoever designed the Union Jack card did a fab job eh? An ATC trade would work well especially with the postage costs by that time.
Hugs Joanne xx

kath said...

another creative snoop at your fabby desk julia and oh boy you had me guessing with the change of post time...mind you it's focused the mind for the day ahead...sending hugs kath xxx

BJ said...

Morning Julia, Not knowing what time you'd post the link I slept like a log - thanks you for changing it. I was debating getting up and then remembered and jumped out of bed to post my link. I was #8 when I sent the link then refreshed and became #12. Hey but still way further up the list :)) I'd love to do the ATC thing (wondering what the PIF thing was from last year though??). I just bought little easels for my craft group UKPC as they are so cute and great for displaying stuff, we're going to do a SWAP with the canvases which came with them. Really must get sorted for DS and school.........Later BJ #12

Kate said...

Like the paper too, where did you get it? Would love a big stamp displat/storage unit like that! And yes I'm up for ATC swapping.

** Kate **

Astrid Maclean said...

Great creative desk again!!

Like the ATC idea but can't guarantee I can commit at this point..

Redanne said...

Good morning Julia, I love that Union Jack paper on your desk and would love some of those stamps on your shelves - brilliant. I would be up for an ATC swap although I have never done one before, it would be good to mark the day.

Dragon said...

VonnyK said...

I would love to do an ATC, but you will have to explain exactly what it is. Sounds like fun. Three years is a long time, so a celebration is definitely called for.
You have so many stamps on those shelves, must have taken you a while to collect all of them.
Have a great week.
Von #27

Sam said...

We are like minded you know, about the paper. I always buy two sheets, especially if they are double sided! Do you want some help tidying your shelves missey? You might be missing a few after I finish though! LOL!
Yes Yes Yes to the ATC idea. I keep last years from Kim on my computer desk and we are now good buddies thanks to you!
Hugs

okienurse said...

OMG! I can't believe I made it below 50 for the first time in a long time. Love the looks of your crafty area this week. I am also glad to see you have stacks of stuff! My whole craft room is like that. I think I am a lazy crafter as Kate Palmer says. I would love to swap ATC for the 3rd Anniversary. Let me know what to do! Vickie #32

Tuire said...

You seem to have the same sized working area as I do. So you can see, I have moved to our bedroom floor :D
I was away last week and had no idea about the changed timing, but have to say, this one is much better for me in Finland and in time zone +2!
Happy Wednesday!

Elizabeth said...

Hi Julia, waited for you to be up with great anticipation this morning, popped off for a cup of tea and here you are :) Love the shot of your stamp shelves - how do you remember what you have in such a huge collection? There's a lot of red, white and blue about at the moment - so your desk is very on trend :) I'll join in with the ATC PIF in 6 weeks. Elizabeth x #27

Morti said...

LOL - so LLJ rang you early this morning eh? I wondered just how late you intended to post this week after your comment last week!

Yes please to the ATC thing - fab idea cos then no-one has too astronomical a postal bill.... yay! Six weeks! Oh Em Gee....

jude said...

Sandy said...

Suzanne said...

Love the stamp shelves - lucky you. Mine are just thrown into a hamper unter the table, not very easy to get to!
ATC thing sounds good
Have a great week and thanks for WOYWW. X

Ann B said...

Love the paper and the in-depth snoop round your workspace this morning. You sneaked up on me today, was up at 6:15 making a drink and thought I was in with a chance of being i nthe first 20. Checked again just before 8:00 am and you weren't there then 15 minutes later I'm down to 39. That's what you get for sitting in bed with a cuppa and the paper.
Love to join in with the ATCs - great idea.

Sorry, forgot... I am number 40!

scrappystickyinkymess said...

I missed out last ear but this year I will hope to join in! What a fun community we have built here - and I am SOOOOOOOOO happy to have a much improved computer and a solid connection for the first time in MONTHS, it seems. But grrrr to Blogger. It's doing yet another annoying thing (showing the blog briefly then going to a white screen with the loading bar just waiting waiting waiting, this IN ADDITION to the comment window disappearing on some) and there have been at least 3 blogs in the first 10 that had stuff I wanted to comment on or ask about. It's driving me MAD. Ah well. If it all worked properly it would be boring, no?

:)

Mary Anne (lucky 13)
and PS - how funny we are on the same rosette wavelength :)

Helen said...

Morning Julia! I bet you find hidden treasure in them there stamp shelves :-). Love the ATC idea. Count me in. Happy WOYWW, Helen 35

Me again Julia - seem to have aged a bit and now I am 42!

Fab desk and I am green with envy about your stamp storage shelves...I would love to have a poke around those shelves and a play. It would be great to do an ATC swap to mark the anniversary...count me in! Caro #49

Di said...

So glad you changed the time for a while, gives others a fighting chance :)

Love your stamp area - anyone meeting you would have no idea you're an untidy little pup but I can also come and help to sort out whenever you wish ;)

Shame on me, never made an ATC, but count me in. PIF was such fun last year and, hopefully, an ATC will cause less angst in the making!

Di xx

ScrappnBee said...

Oohh! It sounds like fun! I'd love to do it (even though I am an ATC Virgin *blush*)! Love the whole shelf section for the stamps! It definately makes good use of the corner! -Amanda x50

Red Kitty said...

Wow cant believe it wednesday again. Love doing WOYWW.
Thank you. x

Lynn Holland said...

Morning Julia, I've got a little easel and canvas on my desk this week and on my posting for Tuesday you can see what I did with it.
That's a good idea propping your IPad up, think I will give it a whirl and your shelves make me want to have a rummage through them.
Congratulations on another anniversary and yes I will join in the ATC swap. It's been great joining in with you, it's a good incentive to be more creative.
Have a good week and thanks for all you do on WOYWW

Rita said...

Good Morning Julia, your desk always looks so interesting. I love that industrious side to crafting, like everyday can be different. Got my lights on that gigantic pot of pva, never seen one that big. Hope you have a lovely creative day. Happy WOYWW150. Hugs Rita xx

Spyder said...

I'm late but who cares! Not even had breakfast yet... but not as late as I thought I was and YES please add me to the making of the WOYWW ATC's I'm sure I could manage that in the time, after all, I managed a craft room last year! Great desk... if I had room I'd love your corner cupboard...but it would be messier than yours, have a great crafting week...somewhere near the #43 mark)

Sandra (Stamping For Pleasure) said...

Great post and good idea to mark the third anniversary.

I'm coming over to sort your stamp shelves out later xxx

MaggieC said...

Oh yes, you caught me out with the time this week. I had completely forgotten about the change of time for posting and just assumed it was Mr Linky playing up again. My fault! I have never done ATCs so that will be something new for me to try. You do have a lot of lovely stamps to play with, it makes my collection look a bit thin, but then I tend to the see through variety these days to make things easier when you want to create a scene with them. Thanks for sharing this week and for being such a good hostess. xx Maggie #59

loving the union jack papers! i like the idea of swapping ATC's although I've never done one, i'm sure I'd manage :o) I've not posted my desk this week, nothing to see as I've been made up with flu! boring! :o( x

Queen Of Toys said...

Julia,

Thank you so much you made my day and really cheered me up. I was so flat after such a hard week of work. It has arrived and proudly sitting where it should right in the middle front row.

As for the anniversary swap, I have given up making ATC's but will join right in just for this occasion, because it is special.

Happy creating

Danielle said...

I've been gone too long. But I'm flitting by again. Love the desk that shows lots of crafty goings-on. And, sigh, especially, the outdoor view. Love that.
Yes, I'd like to participate in the ATC anniversary event (hopefully the person above me doesn't mind sending hers to the US. At least the size should make that easier.. smile)

I'm so impressed that WOYWW has been going strong for almost 3 years! It's a testament to your leadership and our desire to peek over everyone else's shoulder.

I love the built-ins and could really use them myself, although Husband isn't the handiest hammer. *sigh*

I'm all for an anniversary ATC swap!

Cheers,

Hi! My name is Daniella and this is my first party with you!! I was totally excited to join! I have seen a bunch of people I know at your party every week. How fun is it to get to peek at other people's desks!

Thanks so much and have an awesome day!!

Yup, I was checking until 11:00pm last night, then went to bed. I wonder what time it is here in the U.S. when you post? I can never figure that stuff out. I'll just have to get used to being way down the list, eh? Anyway, happy WOYWW and let's all enjoy our particular desks! :D

That is one serious stamp cupboard, and I'm glad other people get taken with an idea and just do it! My studio looks just like that at the moment.
Three years coming up - proof of the pudding, and the ATC idea sounds great to me.

Hi Julia, thanks for your comment, I seem to be doing "catch-up" with replying to posts as I have been at badminton this morning, first time in 3 weeks! Do you actually know what geocaching is then? Not many do. My Leap page was geocaching too, I seem to be the only one left doing it in this family - BJ#12

Creative looking work space this morning. Love that corner shelving. Haven't made an ATC in a few years, but count me in and I will see what I can come up with. No post from me today, still very busy with babysitting new ggrandhild and runing errands as they do not have a car right now. I know - excuses, excuses, LOL.

I love the idea of WOYWW ATCs and hope that many can play and show them off in future WOYWW posts.

Great messy desk today! Clean desks are the sign of a serious psychosis. Thanks for the peek at your shelves too. You've got lots of great stamps there! I love the pile method for the clear stamps. I have a similar method.

How depraved can you get?! My excuse is that the CH boiler is on the blink. Anyway, warmer and awake now, so will start my blogland tour - hope you are all perky. xx

How depraved can you get?! My excuse was that the CH boiler is on the blink. Anyway, warmer and awake now, so will start my blogland tour - hope you are all perky. xx

BumbleVee said...

hey....look at that willya?....I made it under the 140 mark...just!

Either less are playing this week or....I must have got on top of things much earlier in my day...wheeeeeee.... not that I have much to show this week....I'm being thwarted by a miniature Viking....

Est xxx said...

I've just added my tidy work desk...shocking I know!!!

Liz Black said...

Love the desk, loads of cool things to play with! Funny how our own desks are a mess but other people's are so fascinating! Loving Wednesdays too! Thanks for sharing Lizx 142

Jacqueline said...

LOL ! Yeah desk is a lot messy this week :o I am actually quite embarrassed by the state of it.

The 'castle' is actually a wee wooden bird house and its adorable! I'm going to alter it for the print tray along with the wooden birds. Just need the time to make a start on it.

Kathryn said...

Good to see your desk covered up again! That's more like it!
And, yes to the ATC swap! Sounds like fun!
Have a great week.

Queen Lightwell said...

Your desk looks all disheveled like it enjoyed a lovely roll in the...tape gun. ;-)
Your wood stamp corner, on the other hand, looks like it received some sort of wham-bam-thank-you-ma'am treatment! lol
I wonder how you will sort that out?! I'm always interested in how other people get organized...I left a few more details on how I do on my WOYWW post for this week.
And I forgot to comment last week! Where was my head? Thanks for hostessing us and I think some celebration is absolutely in order. I would love to do an atc swap...I have never participated in one! So I hope you post some detailed directions, I mean if everyone decides its a good idea and you go ahead with it, of course. #146~Deeyll

Scrappekatten said...

My daughter is always talking about her best buy, her ATC gun. May be it is time for me to get one of those - hmmmmm

Michelle Webb said...

I love it when your desk is messy! Mine usually is, but far too tidy at the moment. Michelle x

Claire said...

thanks for the lovely comment, julia! and no, even i wouldn't suck day-old coffee off a brush lol!! xx

Deb said...

love your little easel how sweet! Liking the Union Jack paper! Another anniversary already? I would love to play but depends if we have moved by then, I am going to be super busy for the next month and a bit!
Happy WOYWW, Debxx

Sherry Edwards said...

Ooops nearly forgot to leave you a comment! I love your corner shelving storage area - great way to display your stamps. When I'm crafting I usually listen to Radio 4 dramas or my favourite is Frank Skinner's podcast on Absolute Radio although that's only twice a week.

The ATC anniversary idea is fab - count me in!

ooh, lovely creative desk. I can't believe its another year!! ATC's sound like a great idea, easy to post to anywhere in the world.

Toni said...

Don't know what happened but I think my comment just disappeared into the ether! I like the sound of the ATC swap, great way to celebrate by sharing some art , have a lovely week x

Darnell J Knauss said...

Hi Julia! Are your eyeballs blurry by now? Do you say to Mr. Dunnit, "What the ... was I thinking?" Three years and you have an empire! We should definitely celebrate! I've never made an ATC before, so your suggestion makes my tic act up, but I'm game! Have a great week! #148

Monica said...

I'm not sure i did this correctly. I like the swap idea. Just he thing when i clear up and finish my final Ella project for the now.

Cynthia Eloise said...

wow and look how woyww has grown.

TheFairyyellowbugQueen said...

Julia! I listen to BBC iPlayer too. Mostly while I work doing some sort of art thing...but also while doing dishes and basically everything. I cannot believe we have this resource at our fingertips; it's divine. I love the flags on your desk. I love the corner storage of your stamps. I prefer day shots of your desk. I miss the ladder outside. Have fun art friends. *smiles* Norma

My first time here:) Hope I have done it right.

Bridget Larsen said...

Would love to play in the anniversary ATC. Unfortunately I dont have a WOYWW this week to show, spent 2 days in hospital, one for hubby and one for me and too many followup MRI, etc etc to make anything on my desk look any different from last weeks. Didnt even take a photo.
Happy Week to you
Bridget missing WOYWW for the first time since I started playing sniff

BJ said...

Hi Julia, Just wondering how the ATC thing would work - how would we sort addresses (I don't have my e-mail on my blog so could be tricky) Also how would YOU get one too and when would be the deadline for the LAST person to submit be iyswim. I guess you did this all last year and these are simple queries to you but hope you'll explain all next week. Thanks BJ #12

fairy thoughts said...

great looking desk as usual. love the stamp shelves, well done to Mr D for making them. JUst missed you by about 10 minutes this morning.... serves me right for going to work, better late than never. The ATC swop sound like a good idea. Maybe we could make giant ones ... like A4 size, just to be different.

Becky said...

Three years, and here I thought 150 WOYWWs was a big deal! :) Love all your boxes of ATG tape, I'm always afraid of running out. Your shelves are fantastic. Good thinking, putting them in the corner like that! #161

Anne said...

Hi Julia I too likey your stamp storage shelves - I would like some like that!!! I must have been coming to play on Wednesdays for a year then. I was a newbie when you were marking the occasion a year ago so didn't join in. Love to join in this time. Only ever made two ATC's but willinging to have another go. Anne x

Sarah Cooper said...

Late to the party today... with a good excuse. :O)

Dragonlady said...

Had to rewrite my comment as I am now #133 - never mind it is my first time here!!

Hugs Ali x

Polly Polkadot said...

I like the ATC idea, but I intend to do a fabric one, so can you tell me what an ATC is?!! #99

Sheena said...

Great messy desk this week Julia!
Loving all the interesting stuff - the WOYWW ATC looks fab!
I also like that comedian Henning Wehn. Who knew Germans could be funny?! I didn't know he had a radio show - I'll have to listen out for it - thanks for that!
I think you need to get a hard hat for that corner! Ooo, now there's a thought - altered hard hat!

Happy WOYWW!

mommyle said...

I LOVE that you buy two sheets of everything! I do the same thing!!!

I would love to trade some ATC's! I am totally up for that!

scrappymo! said...

Great desk this week Julia...Love the Union Jack papers! Not posting this week as still struggling along with DH's health. Just wanted to check in and leave you a comment though.

Great idea for the ATC's...have to get my thinking cap on. I have never made one B4 but that is what google and Utube are for!

Hope to have hubby and life back on track for next week...hopefully will have a post by then!!!

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

My sincere apologies for missing WOYWW this week. I had to stop by to see if there were plans for Anniversary # 3, and I like the idea of an ATC. That way, each person knows what will be offered, rather than some outlandishly large and well crafted PIFs and some that were small but well crafted. Wise plan to limit the size.

A tornado hit my town, very close in fact. I know Vickie (Okienurse) said it hit a few streets from where she lived. I hope her clean-up was not as extensive as mine. I've spent the past two days cleaning and have a few more things to clean up before I can call this task complete.

Jennifer Nowell said...

I finally made it back! Can someone let me know if I got the verification thingy off? Have a great day!

Nadia (WithGlitteringEyes.com) said...

So excited to post my first WOYWW on my blog. How fun!

Sue from Oregon said...

Yessireeee to the ATC swap for the anniversary celebration! It is amazing how quick a stamp room can explode isn't it!!!???

karen said...

Love your corner stamp shelves! And all the stamps on them!
I would love to do an ATC swap for the anniversary! And I think it is a fabulous idea!

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

I want a selection of scissors like yours! I think it's a great idea to do an atc swap - count me in for sure!! *smiles* ~Jen

Fiona@staring at the sea said...

Ooh I'm very envious of your stamp filled corner shelves. Would love to take part in an ATC swap:)

Sue said...

OMG Julia what a total vegetable I am, am I suffering from senior moments already??? I don't know whether to laugh or cry?? have just realised I posted on an earlier WOYWW had my husband trying to figure out how someone could have put an earlier post on? Not only that but actually commented on lots on that post too!! Anyway, those stamps are a total disgrace but just how I like to see them used and loved is that a Dolly Mumma I see in the far top right? Is there one for my condition? anyway sorry about the war and peace post, great desk and yes lets celebrate, I really do need a stiff one!! oh er missus! Happy Crafting, Sue xx

Sherry Edwards said...

I'm back again Julia! Thanks for your visit to my desk - you asked about the hand held Xyron runner. I've not had it very long and only bought it because it was being sold off really cheaply on Create and Craft TV. I only have the basic cartridge - with happy birthday etc, but so far so good. I really like how it works and prints - just need to perfect my lining up so I get the wording in the right place. I'd ideally like to get the customised cartridge, where I could write my own words, but don't know if that's still available.

Must just say - wow - to the number of participants - over 170 WOYWWers - what are you doing to us all - LOL :)

Shoshi said...

Thanks for the lovely comment, Julia! It's funny about my little stones - my hubby said they looked like Mint Imperials and I said he'd better not eat any or they'd do him a whole lot of no good! His mind tends to run on food... Hopefully they will no longer look like mints once they are on the project and painted lol!! Otherwise it'll be a case of eat your art out.

Glad you like the zentangle. It did turn out very well, and i'm afraid my next efforts may not be so good... Plenty of ideas though!

Shoshi

MaggieC said...

Thanks for your visit this week, Julia. I have to say I have not yet been tempted to try one of the dogs' fishy treats, they do smell quite strong. As far as the rain is concerned, the idea that is is not good for the gardens because the ground is too dry for it to sink in, is a load of rubbish. Our ground is so wet that we cannot do any work on it again, and the dogs are coming back in covered with mud. Have a good week. xx Maggie #59

Julia, thanks for visiting my blog! And blurfing means blog surfing! Love to do that!

Thank you so much for hosting this awesome party! And I love your blog too!

Hi Julia! Missed WOYWW for the first time since I joined! :^( My family went on a vacation to a remote spot in the Philippines! Great idea about the ATC to commemorate the anniversary! Patsy from

Paula Gale said...

OMG - how rude of me - in my haste I never left a message - I knew there was something weird - you know when something isn't quite right but you don't know why... well, now I do and its rectified! Hello - what would we do without you Julia? Your desk is now so familiar to me - and so is that baskey of dirty stamps. It's just not the same without it being the focus of your wednesday post. You see, I wouldn't say that I was too fussy about things but I do clean my stamps after use. Maybe thats why I do a lot of digital designing...

Oh, and I'd love to do what ever you choose to mark the 3rd anniversary. We need to consider postage costs - so whatever we can achieve without any or too many layers/height.

Love and hugs
Paula x x xx

Sara Jansen said...

The Union Jack paper is fabulous; can't wait to see what crafty road it takes you on. I love peaking through the windows at your work desk...so nice and green this week. Still waiting for all the snow to melt in my backyard.

peggy aplSEEDS said...

wow, that is a lot of stamps and at least you have a shelf to keep all of them in one area.

oh yes, i'm game for the WOYWW ATC swap. after all, ATCs started me on this whole blogging thing! happy WOYWW, Julia!

Deb's Pen Pot said...

Hi Julia, hope you're well. After grabbing a few minutes on Wednesday to post, this is the first chance I've had to browse the desks...eek! Methinks I have much catching up to do...! And there's a couple of (small) pesky poems I need to wrangle before work on Monday too - however do we fit it all in, eh?! Thanks for popping by my Pen Pot - see you soon! Deb x

Marnie said...

Julia, Thanks so much for the Welcome,visit and comment on my blog! I love your box of what looks like gems on your desk. To answer your question. The bubble on my desk is actually a glitter bouncy ball but in our scrap group we call them Bubbles. We have all different sizes and colors mine is Turquoisey my fav color. CARS is actually a club it the Chicago Area Rubber Stampers they meet at our local store.

Marnie

Sara Jansen said...

Julia, your visit as well as some others gave me something to focus on which I am thankful to have. Since I am so late in the game, I thought I would post another link to see the finished product that was started back in LA. Can't wait to see what you have planned for us on the THREE year anniversary!!

Kezzy said...

Wow loving your stamp corner and even better it's a mess like mine lol, and liking your desk, lots too see, mind you not sure where you can work if it's worse after the project. Mind you I take that back, I can end up with such a small tiny place that even an ATC won't fit, but somehow while crafting we manage to do it lol. I'm chuffed that your doing something special again and an ATC sounds fab, I'm definitely in. I'm super late this week, happy woyww :-) Kezzy x

Belinda said...

I have been wanting to join in on the fun for weeks. I look forward to getting to know everyone and having some fun.
