Meanwhile, my desk. Two photos of the same sight. Not so much for perspective as to fill the space! Everything on my desk this week is destined to be somewhere else, it is all merely resting.
There at the end is the basket of MDF blanks that will become baubles - soon. The basket will be unpacked and put away *pouf* in a fit of smugness. At the near end, you see my lovely little clipboard. Not altered, because it's still a clipboard people, but fairly pinkly decorated. Its position there is as a result of the Calendar workshop. It held the notes and such that I needed to refer to. Now it's waiting. As I run out of stuff, I add to a shopping list that gets clipped to it. Along with wisps of ribbon or shards of paper that I want more of. Seems very effective huh. Only if I remember to take it with me on a craft shop expedition!
And here's a close up of the other transients. Business accounts. Filed the VAT return and sorted out stuff to date, so that book is to go back in the filing cabinet. Two jewellery gifts from Stella & Dot. Our American deskers will recognise the name. They are new to me and wow, some pretty stuff. These are awaiting wrapping and consigning. No - of course it's not inconvenient to have family birthdays in the run up to Christmas! A packet of teapot shaped cards - destined to be part of a small gift to express gratitude. A couple of cards for workshops this week, awaiting allocation to the baskets that hold all the doings for making them. My ipad stand is again occupied by Eliza's card...I swap it about with others for my non-ipad viewing pleasure.
You can just see the glasses and one pair of scissors, so the world isn't completely out of kilter with all my talk of transience, which really means tidying!
Share will ya? Show us the state of play at your work desk/station/lap tray/floor..it's inspiring. I will get to visit waaay more this week. More a threat than promise, probably!
