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: firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
