The Bank Holiday this week has made the days seem to come way too soon.  Can’t believe it’s Wednesday already!!  It’s time to SNOOP - WOOHOO!!!    If you don’t know yet what What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday is all about (and you really, really SHOULD DO) then pop over to Julia’s blog to spy on what everyone’s revealed this week.  It really is a lot of fun!!   (Oops, I've put the wrong number up there, so my link is taking people to the wrong entry - duh!  My apologies - this is WOYWW 65, lol!

Anyway, here’s a snippet of my desk this week, which actually contains a WIP (Work in Progress), lol.  NOT showing my whole desk this week cos very little has changed, apart from the fact that it’s probably worse than it was!!!!! 


woyww 1 sep
Stazon inks and Paperartsy stamps are out – I don’t use them too often but this time I wanted lots of greens for grasses and was stamping on glossy paper, so I needed the Stazon.  Trouble is, I think I’ve changed my mind about what I’m doing, so this may have been in vain – or probably not.  I’ll make a card from it ;)

You can just see my WOYWW easel peeping from the right hand side and here it is in all its glory, containing my most recent Alphabet 4x4 for KCUK’s Chunky Alphabet swap.  I’ll be blogging it after I’ve posted this.

woyww easel

That stamp of grasses you can see to the left hand side is one of my favourites, although I don’t use it too often because it’s pretty limiting.  Mum sent it from New Zealand, so I treasure it and I may now have the perfect excuse to use it again. 

This may well be my last WOYWW for a while now – not sure yet of the date but I’ll be starting a Full time Course this month and I suspect it will be next week or the week after but I have LOADS of stuff to sort out and to deal with before then, especially after 4 weeks of my OH being home, therefore doing absolutely NAFF all in the house!!!  I’ll miss you all. 

Thanks to everyone who’s left comments in the last few weeks – I really appreciate your kind words and your sense of fun.  I’ll try to get round to you all this week!

32 very much appreciated comments:

You really blew me away with all those Staz-0n colors. I had no idea there were that many greens. Guess my little town doesn't carry anything but basic colors because I've only seen one green in all the time I've been shopping.

NO, you can't leave us. Your art is too precious and artsy. OK, I understand, but it won't be the same. You can bet I'll be back, even if you don't have time to play WOYWW.

Good luck with the full time course. Love your artwork.

I'm interested in the green goings on there and look forward to the results. What a palaver getting here and I thought it was only me who can't get my act together... at least it kept us on our toes and made us think a bit.
You can tell me all about the new course on Sat at the workshop!

Looks like you could make a St Patricks Day card if it doesn't work out for the intended application! Love those PaperArtsy stamps, and the other ones I can see on your desk, especially the grass/wheat one. Good luck with the class you're getting ready to take, we'll see you on here whenever you have the time to pop in.

Hugs
Brenda

Loving your 4x4. I reckon you might just find yourself back on here sooner than you thought...I find study makes us do ALL sorts of things to avoid assignments!

Ciara said...

I think you need some more green inkpads ;-)

I'm glad to see you have a busy desk too, makes me feel a whole lot better!

Thanks for stopping by my first WOYWW too - and I can tell you that LOTS of things fall off my desk onto the floor! Every so often my boyfriend picks them all up for me and dumps them back on the desk. One day i'll stick a strip of wood on the end. One day. Maybe!

Catch you next week
Ciara
