What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 168

Oh my life, the gloom of Tuesday's dusk photo may mean that you can't really see what I've been doing...and that's no bad thing.  Remind yourself, gentle WOYWWer, that however fast the days turn, we are still in August. And if you can, if your brain will let you - sum up the ingredients before me.  Kraft, white, red and gracious Mrs Dunnit, is that a SNOWFLAKE die cut?  Why yes it is, and thanks for not panicking.  I've succumbed...there's too much to do so when the idea hits, you've gotta do it, right?  Empty ipad chair - Miss Dunnit is looking up a recipe for supper time and the rest, I think is repetitive and obvious.  Although if you're a bit squeamish about such things, you won't like the fact that the inked and abandoned stamp will still be like that until I get back to the old desk sometime later today.  I have window shopping to do today, (and so does Lunch Lady Jan!) followed by a delivery in the newly signwritten white van...no, not 'altered', but certainly very public!  See you later!

Please join us - show us what and where you're being creative - you're a great inspiration - ideas, supplies, lifestyle, recipes, photography - this WOYWW has it all!  
Upload a pic to your blog, put WOYWW in the title and link here.  Turning off Word verification is massively helpful if you can bring yourself to.

scrappystickyinkymess said...

Ack! Well Ivan hardly adult you for Christmas stuff. Oddly my previous Xmas posts have been getting heavy traffic so I know that there are people out there who will be thrilled a snowflake lurks! Happy WOYWW, as ever.

Busy desk there Julia.. Christmas makes me thinks!! enjoy your window shopping... Happy WOYWW.. Hugs May x x x#4

Hazel said...

I'm impressed, Julia, to see snowflakes. Glad I've just caught this before going to bed as I won't have much time in the morning - although I might try to get better photos in daylight x

scrappystickyinkymess said...

Omg! Predictive ext and tired eyes :). Clearly that SHOULD have been "I can hardly fault you". Who the heck is Ivan?

I love that ipad chair, will have to hunt one down for myself now that I have acquired a kindle that almost looks like an ipad lol

BJ said...

Try as I might I can't spot the stamp in question. I even clicked on the photo hoping it would get bigger but it didn't. It did go via the "old way" of things and let me just click on the "X" to return to your page. My Blogger seems to have changed to opening a new page when I click on a photo and therefore you are forced to click the back arrow to return. All rather bothersome any idea why??? Happy WOYWW Julia - BJ#6

Neesie said...

I've got the same trouble this morning with no sunlight for my photos...and then I see snowflakes!!!
Oh come on Julia I need spring before Christmas ~ pleeeeeeeeeeeeeease! ;D
Have a great week and thanks for hosting what will be another great gadabout! :D

Di said...

Crying here about 'Who the heck is Ivan' - what a crazy bunch! Snort.

And I can't see that stamp either - did you move it after taking the photo? Err, or is that a bit dumb of me

Happy WOYWW, still spitting feathers at not thinking to turn off at Amesbury :(

butlersabroad said...

Lol, I'm so glad Mary Anne explained who Ivan was, well, kinds sorta! I'm so happy and excited you've climbed on the Christmas bandwagon, doing the happy dance here! I know it's taken 2 1/2 years but I feel proud to have finally rubbed off on you, even if it's just a smidgen!

Hugs

Helen said...

Hi Julia - I say if you are going to have snow in August make it great big flakes! I have that lovely snowflake die too. Have fun shopping - why stop at the window. This is a true test for my doppleganger LLJ if she shops it is another twin moment :-D

JoZart said...

Well I really am squirming that the first 3 I've left comment on have shown things like reindeers, snowflakes red stuff and white stuff .... eeeeek! Not yet, not yet!!!

Helen said...

This being middle aged and waking in the night for a trip to the loo has it's benefits, you can link up nice and early... Your desk looks impressively tidy, today.... is it careful angle choosing or just tidy? I'd love to see the newly signed white van...????
Helen, 19 that's n.n.n.n.nineteen...it's ok, I'm going back to bed!! )

Spyder said...

Love the little deck-chair, I have a smaller one for my old phone...but my new phone hasn't got a chair, it has a claw..but I don't think it minds...I could ask it. Snowflakes...not yet for me...closest I've come to them is cornflakes
Lyn...#18 again...how clever!

Hands to Work, Hearts to God said...

A snowflake die cut!!!! That sends me in panic mode because of course having a gift shop means we have to prepare for the Christmas season already!!!! Patsy from
HeARTworks and

Charlene said...

Just got a little stand for my ipad as well, but not nearly as classy as yours, m'lady!!

Sandy Leigh said...

I'm not only distracted by the idea of the die-cut snowflake in August, but what fun I would have going along shopping with you and Jan!! Hugs! --Sandy Leigh

Lavinia said...

Like the idea of Kraft & red together, good Christmas combo colours....And love that deck chair i-pad holder too! I have yet to try blogging from mine, I will try soon! us yer new Van Julia ;-)

Goodness gracious does this mean you are starting on the big C for
Christmas? lovely messy desk.

My desk this week is really different. LOL

Joynana said...

Hi Julia, I love to get in early. I get to visit more blogs when I do. Yes, it is time to get started making the Christmas cards I said. I don't want to be the last minute getting mind done. Plus, I make cards for a few others, so I have to start early.

Unknown said...

I think it is a good time to start on the Christmas cards as I hate trying to make them when it is crazy busy with all the rest of Christmas preparations and fun.
Love the sound of Kraft and red!

Michelle Webb said...

Hey Julia it's been a few weeks for me since I was here, but I like popping back to see what you're up to. I need to start doing my Christmas cards but I'm waiting for new stuff I've ordered to get cracking. I have a new kitten on my workdesk this week. Michelle xx

famfa said...

Your desk is colour coordinated again. Reddy orangey. Lovely. I may have to succumb to Christmas soon too and start making presents. Arrrrrrrggghhh. Happy window shopping x

Daniella said...

Best to start early for Christmas. That time of year is hectic enough!! I don't know what the van is, but you seem happy about it! Enjoy your window shopping and lunch!

A signwritten white van?? Oooh I want to know more about that one. Hope you and LLJ have a lovely day window shopping, but I bet you both buy something.........Crafty hugs, Anne x #32

fairyrocks said...

Oops, remove my post that went to the wrong post...The green cross hatch drew me in...or maybe I should be wearing my glasses more.
I am in at 33, that has never happened.
Thanks for hosting. I can't seriously think of Christmas yet, Although I did mention it in passing in my post:)

Shoshi said...

The dreaded "C" word keeps appearing! We always complain about the decorations etc. appearing in the shops in October, but WOYWW beats the lot, with "C" stuff in August lol!!

Thanks for hosting us yet again, Julia - your hard work on our behalf is much appreciated!

Happy WOYWW,
Shoshi #35

I'm a little early this week . . .

i should have put the crocheted elephant in the photo too.

dangit!

Katie said...

I love your ipad chair! So cute :)

Katie (39)

VonnyK said...

When I think of the big 'C' word, it's not snow flakes but swimming pools and glorious heat. At the moment it feels like snow flakes are falling outside. Hurry up spring, but Christmas can wait!! Very pretty snowflake though.
Have a great week and enjoy the shopping (even if it's only window).

Lindsay Weirich said...

Diana Evans said...

Julia!!!! thank you so much for hosting such a fun blog hop!!!! always love to see your workspace!!!

Tertia said...

I am so frustrated right now. Blogger will not let me upload pictures!!! GRRRR!!! I will be back later to post, but thought I would get a headstart on commenting this week anyway.I can not believe that even you have started on the dreaded C word crafting! You guys are putting me in panic mode way too early!
Happy WOYWW
If I had a post with a number I would have put it here,

MvM-design said...

Hi Julia,

less time at the moment but I had to make my WOYWWpost this week! :)

Have a great day!!

Happy WOYWW. Xmas/Christmas/Festive Season .... Sorry to admit that I have been unusually organised and started making cards in June!! Ali x #55

The C word....noooooo.....! Is that a card sketch I see on the paper pad? Now that looks like planning and designing....I am impressed ;)

Queenie Jeannie said...

Nothing fabulous ON my desk this week.....BUT.....the fact that I even have a desk and that it's all set up is a miracle in itself, lol!!! All moved in and ready to play!!!!!! Missed you all!

Twiglet said...

Be careful Julia and Jan - I went window shopping with M. in Birmingham last week and by the time we came home we had ordered a wedding dress!!! x Jo

fairy thoughts said...

No, sorry can't even think about Christmas yet... I refuse, until after the wedding, far more pressing matters to attent to, like the whole scary .... buying a hat thing!!!!!!!!might even make one LOL
janet

KatzElbows said...

I almost never clean my stamps. Unless you count wiping them on my jeans! (Please note that I am ignoring the snowflake, even though I'm about to start making Christmas cards myself!)

okienurse said...

OMG! What can I say...I don't clean stamps right away either and I used to be one of those ultrasqueamish types myself. Hope you found something good for supper. Have fun window shopping! Vickie #68

AJ Scrapbooking and Cards said...

Hi Julia, I'm made over this week. That is posting a comment. Sorry I haven't been posting comments. Got do do some back dating. Any whoo I l cant wait to see what all the kraft, red and white is about. Oh that's right Christmas. I love anything Christmas. :-) Happy WOYWW #66 AJ-

Hmmm window shopping? You going to buy new windows then? :-)

Have a great day x

Samantha Elliott said...

Morning! It is never too early to start on Christmas stuff. In fact Sandra and I have been doing Rudolph Day all year! Next one is Saturday!
I don't always clean my stamps straight away and in fact, it doesn't really matter!!
Have a great day!

Lunch Lady Jan said...

Everything is connected, isn't it? I picture Ivan as this great big grizzly Russian guy striding manfully through the snow...and there you are doing snowflakes...spooky... *grin*

Perhaps Ivan can spark a 50 Shades type novel, eh???

Lynn Holland said...

Good morning Julia, just wanted to say I loved the card you did on Monday. Enjoy your week. Off for a browse and a cuppa.

Ha, thought I'd get in early this week! Am #75! Are you people up all night? LOL

Keren Howell said...

Sounds like a hecic day ahead! Have fun with it!

misteejay said...

Enjoy the window shopping.

Desk looks lovely and busy.

What's wrong with making Chrimbo cards - a recent week-long challenge was probably the most card making I've done in ages and they were all for Christmas - Red/white/kraft seems to be a popular theme for the coming festive seasonut so far I haven't played with those colours yet.

Hope you have a fab day with LLJ.

Toni xx

Minxy said...

Oh the c word.. can't quite believe it's august and those type of cards need to start being made.. what happened to summer!!
Have fun "window" shopping lol

Ha! In the time it takes to write a comment more join and now I'm #81! There's a lot to get the hang of. Didn't mention Julia, I'm in denial about Christmas but here's hoping your itch gets well and truly scratched so you can enjoy the remnants of summer. Hugs, Buttons x

Go on, alter the van, you know you want to.

scrappyjen said...

I was determined to be in the first twenty... got up too late again - holidays, lol! Have a fabulous day and thanks for visiting me last week! jenx

Victoria said...

Have a lovely day shopping with LLJ. I always wonder about 'window shopping' - you don't need to shop for windows, you just have to wait for the dozens of salespeople who knock on your door asking if you are interested in double glazing!
Starting Christmas things early doesn't bother me in the slightest - made my first 2012 Christmas card on 26th December 2011 and have been slowly getting a few done through the year. I'm still behind though. Ah well. Happy WOYWW! Victoria no.87

Erika said...

Hi Julia...it's ramping up for Christmas here too, boo! Have fun with your red, white and kraft, mmmm I think it's going to be the in colour combo this season, don't you think?
Have fun, hugs Erika.

Trish Latimer said...

Morning Julia!!! I'm better late than never this week! Red white and kraft is a fab colour combo, loving it!! Trish #90

CRAFTY WOMBLE said...

Oooooooh an iPad chair............... I love my iPad very much haven't got it a chair yet, have a case thing but I like that idea very much. I have to confess to starting to think about the end of the year, making needs forethought.......... I do love September to 24th December though :)

Laura said...

Haha! I think crafters find 'the C word' a lot less scary than most folk!

Oh my lordy Christmas stuff... I so need to get myself focussed I havent even thought that far ahead yet.. seeing how we only had our summer holiday last week I want to enjoy this tan a little longer before the hustle and bustle of festive seasonals!! All looks very productive I must say though . xxx

i wish my desk was as tidy as yours today, Julia. Have fun with your window (or other) shopping. xx

Becky said...

I use to be freaked out by inked up stamps, years ago, but now, sometimes I don't even clean them off before I put them away!!!

Karen McAlpine said...

An altered van??!! Fits right in with my "altering" mood.

Tracy said...

Ooo sounds like a lot of deliciousness happening over your side of the "pond". It's never too early to think of that certain holiday coming upon us so fast! Happy WOYWW and gosh how I've missed being away from all this creative awesomeness! Warmly, Tracy (#110)

Sylvia/LittleTreasures said...

Joining in is always fun, and I am glad to be back. Evenings come to quickly and light is fading faster everyday. Oh the dreaded word this early, but we are all doing some of it little by little.
Have fun today with your friends and Happy WOYWW

CraftygasheadZo said...

Oh my I'm late, well for me anyway. Been out this morning in the wheelchair, giggles galore I can tell you! Great desk, think I'm with you on the need to start 'C' stuff when the ideas hit, as you'll see on my desk today! Take care, Zo xx 122

Kim said...

Yup...during my cleaning frenzy, I too sorted out my Holiday papers, and left them on top, easily accessable. And when putting away my dies, my Christmas ones also found themselves on top of the shelf next to the Vagabond...ready to go. There are only 2 months before the holiday craft fair...

Lisa said...

I also see some EP. And I am a firm believer in crafting your desires as the mood strikes. Can't wait to see what your making!

RosC said...

Not to worry about the inky stamp. It will wait, and some folks including dear Tim Holst tend not to clean them anyway. Not that I go with that, but mine do have to wait a bit. Orange hits my eye this week...you have lots of orange containers and other thingies. Maybe you usually do but tonight they got me.
I'm late this week. Ho hum! At least I've made it, and happy to do so although my post is a bit odd this week.
Warm wishes to you,
Ros. #125

dix said...

Hope you had a good window shopping expedition today with LLJ ... how much of it will be window and how much actual, I wonder ... but why no pic of the newly signwritten white van ... just got to see that :) I'm sure that you already know I do Christmas all the year round so all I can say is, your late with the snowflake :)) Happy WOYWW, Elizabeth x #105

Princess Judy Palmer said...

An abandoned stamp.... the shame of it all. It looks like a happy mess that's for sure. I have a pile of Christmas stamps on my (very tidy) desk too. They are for a class I'm doing on Saturday. So far I have made the samples, put the stamps on the blocks and cut the baker's twine. The really important part of cutting papers and gathering it together nicely has not yet been done. I'm not quite sure when I can fit it in either.

Yep strike while the iron is hot I say, or while the snowflake is cold maybe? I've always been a last minute girl when it comes to Christmas, but will have to change my ways this year! I was in Japonicas yesterday afternoon and chatted to the very nice lady behind the counter :o)

Kathryn said...

Hi Julia!
Long time - no post! Glad to be back. But, you and the others are scaring me with all the Christmas crafting! I was just beginning to think about Halloween and now I'm already behind! Oh well, I always manage to make it somehow.
Have a great week!

Kezzy said...

Eeeekkkk Christmas lol, I actually do work for a magazine where we test what the author has done, basically saying normal crafters can do it and Yes I came back off my hols to an email with my next mission a crimbo theme. I always put all my christmas bits away but think I need to get them down soon (after trying to find somewhere to put them seems I have bought more stash through the year!!) as I am actually being tempted to start early this year, hope so last year left it too late and managed only a few cards for challenges. Will you be using the poly wreath this year I sent? I was going to use mine through the year but looks like christmas will get her first lol. Hope you and lunch lady Jan have a great day out. Happy Woyww :-) Kerry xxx

Danielle said...

I think it is smart for people to start on their holiday projects early, although I am not smart enough to do it myself. And I don't clean my stamps right way, either. Sometimes, gasp, not at all. dani#137

Hi Julia

Bit early?

Your desk seems to be all colour co-ordinated with oranges and red - or at least some of your tools of the trade do! lol.

Wow - lots of numbers this week joining in. I almost did last week, but yet again, started Wed, did a bit more on Thurs - next minute its Saturday... distractions! It's sat in my drafts with all the others. This week? Not feeling to great i'm afraid.

Ahhh, you mentioned the 'c' word! Right i'm off then...

Big hugs

Ahhhh. yes I do see the snowflake! Welcome to Christmas in August! Sadly, even though I've been making Christmas cards for months, I'll still be behind come Christmas....A non crafting friend just asked if I'd make her a box full of cards....of course she picked one that took forever to make. I invited her to come make them herself.... Happy almost Wednesday to you!

Thanks for stopping by and leaving such a nice commnet. I don't know how you get around to everyone... read there posts and comment too.. you are a true Wonder Woman!!!

I.m back and I did finally manage to post my pictures. It took till about a minute ago, but I think I left a comment for everybody. Two weeks in a row, that must be some kind of a revord.

Shoshi said...

Oh Julia, thank you so much for your visit and your very kind comments - I am being so uplifted by everyone's support and kindness. My hubby saw him today and it's not good. We are still hoping he'll pull through this but he's very poorly, and confused. I'll be posting updates on my blog and via replies to people's comments.

Just heard Neil Armstrong has died...

Hugs,

Amy E said...

Hi Julia!
I got up early on the list, but it's taken me all week to make the rounds...sorry I'm so late.

I'm so impressed you're starting Christmas cards. I'll probably start mine the middle of December, give up the day after Christmas, and then we'll just go around again next year. I'm SUCH a procrastinator!!

I hope you and LLJ had a fun window shopping trip!

Neet said...

Now I am not a diecutter but I demonstrate die cutting! Work that one out! But this weekend I was using a "C" tree die and thought that I might just buy one and use it myself this year - save a lot of work stamping and colouring etc. So go ahead with the snowflake and I'll make a start on the trees.
Hugs, neet #58 xx

Hi Julia,

Looks like a great work desk, messy enough to inspire :D Love the happy-happy sign in the corner.

Just posted my contribution! Thanks for hosting! I always want to plop myself down in your chair and start helping myself - virtually, of course! (I would never have the guts to do that in real life! :-)
