What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 152

I am attempting to schedule this post....if it doesn't appear much before 8am...the scheduling thingy hasn't been fixed yet.  Sorry. Or YAY, depending on your time zone!


First of all, understand gentle WOYWWer, that the grass is too long and so green and all looks sun drenched and lovely because it hasn't stopped raining for the last oh, sixteen weeks or something.  Serioulsy....I have, for reasons I cannot share, an 8" deep plastic tub on my patio and it is overflowing.  Because I work *cough* at home, I simply snap a pic of the old desk top as soon as there's any decent light...and this afternoon was dry for over 3 hours - so unusual that it caused my neighbour to speak to me.  And look - the rain has shrunk my ipad! You can see a couple of cards in preparation for a 'Cards for Men' workshop.  Argh.  You can see an A4 sheet which is actually the workshop schedule with my name on it more than once.  Argh.  Glasses..of course.  Lidded gesso..(under the ATG tape runner thingy baby, tool of my trade, apple of my eye). Now the temperature is a bit better, the gesso will be unlidded: to answer a few Q's...yeah, it does get a skin if you dont stir it now and then...it's acrylic based gesso see....but it is evaporating some water, but taking an age.  But be careful, if your gesso is genuine plaster based, it won't need to be lid-less for long (maybe a couple of hours) before you get a result. 
So there's a basket at the right edge which once was full of dirty stamps.  Well I had a fit of OCD and cleaned and put away and now the basket is full of acrylic blocks and tidy tray.  And workshop notebook.  Deeply interesting, huh.  
So, the WOYWW third anniversary is week 156.  If you want to join the ACT-it-forward thingy, details can be found at this post.  If you missed out on a WOYWW badge and are feeling deprived, email me: juliadunnit@me.com and I'll send you one.  But I will need your postal address.   If you don't wanna do any of that nonsense, just show us what you're working on and where you're doing it.  Upload a pic of your desk to your blog.  Put WOYWW in the title.  Link here.  When you visit others and comment, tell them what number you are on the link list.  Easy. Unless you don't know how.  Help is at hand. If I don't know, there's a kerjillion who do and will share the knowledge, that I do know.

  3. Oh those cards look awesome Julia - can't wait to see them close-up!

    I must have MAJOR OCD cause I cannot STAND dirty stamps - lol! Seriously - I have to stop and clean them after each use (even while stamping) - which is probably one of the reaons stamping is such a major production for me!

    Next week can you PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE post the DATE for those of us who are lazy and challenged and cannot otherwise figure out which week our cards are due... ahem... lol... thanks so much! I know - pretty soon we'll want you to lick those postage stamps too! But seriously, dates and numbers - NOT my friend!

    Happy WOYWW to you!

  6. I must say, your desk is very neat today. I can sympathise with the rain, it pelted down saturday and didn't stop until today. Lovely to see the sun back isn't it.
    Have a great week, I have to bake some biscuits for little misses afternoon tea.

  7. I have NO idea how you got your post to schedule properly. I haven't had a single post schedule right for over a week. Glad you got yours straightened out.

    BTW, those of us with killer math skills know the ATCs are due by Wednesday, May 29, so I'll pass it on to Ramona (Create with Joy). And as if you didn't know, I'm # 4 this week.

  8. Well it took me 20 min or so to find where to edit my post so I could add and publish it. I need to "READ" some instructions on the blogger changes.
    Frustration set in .
    Your view is so bright and green, we are in a severe storm path thru Wed. PM..Hail, High Winds, Rain.. and your glasses look so big for some reason and so does that tape dispenser. Love your card. Happy WOYWW

  9. What a ridiculous time for me to be up! (don't worry, going back to bed). What a good example you are today, Julia, with all your stamps cleaned and put away and such a tidy desk. The cards are looking good. x

    ReplyDelete
  10. Hi Julia, Glad you cleaned those stamps! I'm a bit OCD like that too. And thinking about time zones hurts my head. I would like one of your cute WOYWW badges but I will send you an ATC first, no matter where my name is on the list. So maybe you could send me your snail mail address sometime? Happy WOYWW ... it's the best Wednesday there is!

  13. Julia,

    Happy wednesday to you,I am in the system again, actually that keen I took the photo at 1.40am after I finished work so I wouldn't have to fiddle half asleep later in the day.

    Oh I do believe if you stamp the image enough the ink come off then you dont have to worry so much about cleaning them LOL

  15. Lovely to see a sunshine desk Julia...there's something about the light that just shouts "Get busy creating" and obviously you're doing just that.
    I have no idea how to schedule a post ~ clever you...it's a skill I should look into but so far haven't felt the need.
    I love to learn new things all the time... my next challenge (huh...adventure) will be to create an etsy shop :$
    Have lots of fun with WOYWW :D

  16. Good morning Julia, you snuck up on me there, just got up for a cuppa and there you are. Looks like you had more sunshine yesterday then we did - very dull day here. I usually clean my stamps as I go - rest of my desk may be a tip though.

  18. Woo Hoo! Look at me all the way over here on the west coast of USA, getting in so early!!!! HA! Not planned, just up late and thought I'd take a shot. I'm usually very, very late to the party and never too worried about it.
    Happy for your little patch of sunshine! Hope it will get longer each day! At least you don't have to worry about mosquitoes hatching in your standing water bucket!

  33. Hi Julia, nice bit of sunlight on your desk and the union jack cards are brill. I like the idea of cards for men workshop, we could do that at Sunnybank.
    What does your yellow tapey thing do, is it for double sided tape, that would be useful.
    Have a lovely week and thanks for WOYWW youve got a great thing going here.

  50. Very tidy desk Julia and lovely to see a bit of sunshine.

    The ground here is so soggy that the nettles are having a field-day and the lawn is lush and green but squelchy under foot. I want some proper sun not just a few moments between downpours - and we still have drought warnings in place...roll on Summer.

  51. Still drizzly and grey here. Was quite nice yesterday - we seem to get a day reprieve and then a week of downpour.

    Your picture looks so warm and welcoming, makes me want to climb right in the screen.

    Except my bum would probably get stuck!

  52. Morning Julia - sunshine! Ooh I wish, it's grey and murky here, but dry, for now! Your desk always looks so creative, love your union jack projects. Your grass is so lush and green! Take care & enjoy this week's WOYWW offerings! Zo xx 68

About the water...if we don't dump ours we end up with a fresh batch of vampire like mosquitoes every 10 to 14 days. They are the bain of my summer days. Their larvae can also live in the soil for at least 2 years, Who Knew?

  95. Haha! I went on that same OCD trip 3 days ago myself! Cleaning the stamps that is. I am so bad about that!!! I do as you do, I get them all messy, and leave them that way until either
    A- I need to use it again.
    B- There are so many dirty ones it makes me mental!!!

    I would love to join the ATC it forward. I will email you in a bit.
    Have a wonderful WOYWW!!

  98. Good morning Julia, this is my second week and I think I forgot to comment on your site last week. Pathetic!! Anyhow, I sure could use your rain. We just had our first rainfall yesterday in oh so long. My shrubs were so thirsty. Seems all the rain has been in your area. I like that you have a window right in front of your desk. Mine are around the room. Come check out my desk if you get time. I know I didn't finish last weeks. :(

  103. I like how you always tell folks what we are seeing on your desk. Me, I just make them guess. And then they guess wrong and I have to puzzle over what they did see (the container of M&Ms someone swore they saw on my desk). I would say send some that rain over our way but that's a long trip and it would get lost on its way. Grass huh? That's what that stuff looks like?

  104. your masculine cards looks fabulous, that is going to be a great workshop. Your grass looks lovely, can't see how long it is from here or do I just need my glasses on! I sometimes pretend I don't need them!

  105. It's actually not rained here today for once so I managed 3 hours in the garden. Mind you I have neglected it that much that only about 2 foot square got weeded in that time. But still, progress! Will reward my hardwork by doing some crafting tonight. Love your desk as always. Amy #141

  106. Hi Julia Busy, Busy, The rain has held off today and the sun has just come out hurray! It's funny but I like crafting on really rainy days as I know I couldn't possibly be doing anything else. When the weather's good I feel a bit guilty staying in doors. I'm thing of getting an ATG would you recommend it?I'm not sure if I can handle one as it looks a bit big Happy crafting x toni #142

  109. Sunshine, yay! We've been quite grey and gloomy this week, but that's ok. We need the rain after such a dry winter.

    Love the slice of life that is your desk. :-)

  114. Julia I don't know if anyone else is having a problem but I can't leave comments on a few folks blogs because general access is denied. It might be worth mentioning that the blogs have to allow access for comments to be left?

  118. You wouldn't know it's been so wet for you! Look at how beautiful, lush and green your grass looks though! Cards for Men - sounds like a great topic....I always struggle with making items for the "men folk"! Have a great Wednesday *smiles* ~Jen

  119. Your work space is lovely and sunny today even if you have had to put up with lots of rain. Your card is very patriotic in its colours and seriously where does one get a 'tape runner thingy baby' like that lol

  124. I am green with envy over your sunshine. I don't think I've seen any real sun since we spent Christmas in Mexico. UGH!!!

    I LOVE your cards! How fantastic!!!

    Thank you again for another wonderful week!

  125. Ah, sunshine!! But how long will it last?! Those cards for men look great, I need to pay close attention to them because I always run out of ideas when I need to make a 'male' card. Have a lovely week,

  129. Busy, busy desk! Did I read that right? Sixteen weeks of rain??? Oh my! We certainly could use half of that here in Texas right now. Our spring is feeling a bit like early summer!

  132. Lovely sunny desk. Lots of things to see.
    I do enjoy it when Wednesdays swing around because it's a great little motivator for me. Sad to say that this month is very busy with work so I might be a bit recalcitrant.
    Yours as ever,
    Ros.

  133. I've decided not to call a sudden fit of putting stamps away an episode of OCD; instead it has become my monthly MENSA training in conceptual inter-spatial engineering. Or of futility...either way...

  134. Hello!

    My poor old brain really got the days mixed up this week - I am posting WOYW on Thursday! So sorry - but better late than never! We have had so much rain here in WI also and although we have much warmer temps today we are to have severe storms now - bringing of course, more rain! The green is lovely but I am weary of it all! Wishing you sunshine today!

    Hugs,

    Barbara Diane

  139. Well hello my special blogging friend, this is the second week in a row that i've taken all of my pictures, written a couple of para's of my post and then completely been distracted by something or somebody and not been able to come back to my post in a decent amount of time in order to make it worth posting. In the meantime, i've picked stuff up that i've had to do. I really don't know how you do it Ms. Dunnit - once upon a time, my Dad would call me supermum and megastar because I had so much on a the same time but can't seem to cope with more than a couple of things at one time, so unfortunately, I didn't make WOYWW again this week - will try harder for next week and defo want to be part of the 3rd anniversary. I'll go and read the post that tells me all about it. Also i'll drop you a line about a badge :O)

    big hugs

  140. Loving the male cards. The DT I'm on, the fortnightly challenge is one for the boys, I HATE IT, my mojo has disappeared, I keep starting bits but chuck them away, I managed the challenge, but we also pop cards on the shop blog for inspiration which was my idea, and everyone else has posted but me lol. Think I need to pop along to one of your workshops. Loved all the dollies, bet it was a great surprise and the layout of the accident was a eye catcher, there I was, reading double time making sure you weren't under the ladders, then no mention, mega inlarged layout and relief finding it was staged lol. Happy woyww, late again :-) Kezzy xxx
