WOYWW, a Century

I reckon a hundred episodes of What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday is cause for celebration as a warm-up for the two year anniversary and Pay It Forward party coming up soon.  Details of this desk display is all about is over at Julia Dunnit's blog. She's the Desk Jockey par excellence.

New Stash

This morning I came home from the water aerobics class to find my order of bits & pieces in the front porch. Good-o!! What's on my desk today then, is some recording of what I bought and putting where I can find it, or more importantly, see it.

You can see Grunge paper (just), the Tim Holtz post card anthology and the strange mixture of skull & crossbones, birds in flight, and flourish. I bought it for the birds. There's a Whimsy post card, an Alterations Edge, and the whirlygig which started it all. Everything is listed and dated, and by the time you read this, it will all be put away.

Happy days,
Ros.

Morning Ros, a red letter day for you today - I just love it when the postie brings me new goodies too. You're so organised, recording everything in your notebook on the day it's received - I should do the same but fail to record, though I do put away right away :) Not too keen on skull and crossbones, etc., but do love the birds in flight. Have a great week. Elizabeth x #38

That's some yummy stuff you got there, Ros. And how neat that you put it all away - my new stuff usually is "hanging around" until I finally find a home for it.

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

What great new treats you now have to play with. I love those birds, too. I think that's why I would buy it. Thanks so much for stopping by today. Happy WOYWW (#6).

Lots of nice stash there. Love the Tim Holtz stamps. I just can't help myself buying them. Have fun stamping! Sorry I am late getting around this week but I haven't been feeling well this week! Thanks for sharing. Vickie #36

MaggieC said...

Lots of lovely new stuff to play with and such a tidy place to do it. I think the promarkers and copics probably do a similar job, but I am sure that others are far more knowledgeable and experienced on that subject. Thank you for your visit and your very kind comments. I will have a look at the trip page this weekend.

I kind of blow hot and cold with grunge paper, it's the grey, it puts me off, they should do it in cool blue and soft pink, then my eye would encourage me to use it more, yes I know I can colour it any way I like but I have to want to pick it up in the first place and the darned stuff is just ugly, ugly,

hope you have been cutting things out magnificently now I showed you how to do it sloppily.

Your desk looks lovely with all your new bits sitting there to inspire... I hate to put stuff away too quickly because then I forget to use it!! Sorry I am so late this week, Annette #25

Susan Allan said...

Hi Ros.
Your workbench is very organised and so much nice 'kit' to play with. Aerobics....my word; how energetic. Takes me back!
Don't forget to show us what you make.
Have fun and keep busy, no slacking now.

Sue xxxx

Hi Ros
It's me again, now it's a few days later.
Thanks for your lovely comment. The jewellery is experimental as most of my stuff is. I call it experimental as it covers up a complete lack of talent. The necklace is so fragile, but it can be a window decoration; it's made with dandelion seeds.
I'm going to buy one of those mattreses for camping. I'm off to Cornwall in July for a weekend of painting the sea and I'm camping as well. I hope my art teacher can really get me going. I love the sea, I think you do too!
I shall be back to see wht you make!
Take care, Ros.
Sue xx
