A few years ago (actually QUITE a few now..) I joined in with a lovely weekly blog hop event called WOYWW and I met some of the lovely deskers in real life too. Julia (Queen Bee) recently celebrated 11 years of this regular event bringing crafters from all sorts of mediums together from far and wide. It reminded me how much I had missed the interaction, and yes, the act of snooping around other crafters desks.
This was my desk at 7.30 this morning. It is fairly bare of actual craft because in the week I need a lot of space to process the cut files. But I did have a sneaky layout on the desk which I was adding a little something to. It was one of the ones I photographed the other day when the tripod fell over and smacked me in the face. When I looked at the photo on the screen, I realised it lacked a shot of dark pink in the photo quadrants so I just plopped on some resin flowers, put it into the “needs to be photographed pile” and then it’s back to work.
You can also see my new planner and highlighter pen that Miss B (now 11!) gave me after a clear out in her room. She also gave me lots and lots of peel offs… The pen was genius though as I could colour code my diary which was hiding under the box of delicious enamel dots and resin bits. The other bits are all tools of my daily trade, including the snot rubber sent to me by the lovely Laura Rumble (I’m sure it has a proper name but it is THE BOMB at getting rid of glue).
This is my desk of a weekend. Much more interesting but also darker because it was taken in the afternoon and the sun blasts in through the window that I face and I can’t see a darn thing! Punches and scissors and glue, oh my! And a layout I had almost finished.
So from now on, the WOYWW will actually be a WWOYWW (What WAS on your workdesk Wednesday), if that’s okay. I shall now grab a cuppa and enjoy a peruse around the desks to see who is still around (I know there are some serious stalwarts and I’ve really missed many of the talents and the people themselves) and also to see who has joined that I haven’t come across before. It’s a great way to meet other crafters, and yes, to find yourself wanting new goodies and taking up new hobbies… You can find out more here.
