WOYWW #363

Welcome to What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday! Thanks to our hostess Julia at The Stamping Ground, we have an opportunity to peek into creative spaces all over the world.

This is my desk as of 2 hours ago...

I've started a card for my Executive Director's retirement; she has a thing for dragonflies; and while I have a million images of birds and butterflies; shockingly only a few of dragonflies; and this one seems the most interesting; But it needs a cool background; enter all the alcohol inks on the right, which made the background on the left; my first time playing with Yupo Alcohol Ink Paper by Ranger. Stuff is weird and pretty cool at the same time; but it does play well with the inks.  So now it sits until I can fully formulate an idea; plus I had to stop to make dinner.

The stack upper left is a pile of misc. cast-offs, pieces parts, etc. just from the last month.  I need to get control of these, as I have 2 drawers, a plastic case, a stack on the other desk and a bin of almost 20 years of these pieces.  At what point does one decide that they are just mistakes, or non-salvageable scraps of paper, and weed them out?  because I am really needing the space...just sayin/ 

Oh, and just so you can see my real intent for the day (off of work for vet appointment and vacuum service call) I finished up the ATC's, got everything sorted, then had a good clean, with only the intention of looking for the dragonfly stamp; this was how I intended to end the day; which was only a half hour before the above.  Doesn't take much to make a mess!

So that is mine; now go visit Julia to hop over to more creative spaces.  Have a great week everyone.


  1. I like the dragonflies. Your desk looks very organised.

    Happy WOYWW

  2. The dragonflies are lovely. That will be a beautiful card when you have finished everything. I quite agree - it certainly doesn't take long to make a mess - a couple of things laid down on the desk.... and they breed like rabbits ... until you can no longer see the desk and you are left wondering how on earth that happened!!! You are not alone.
    Take care. God bless.

  3. Isn't it funny when you don't realise about the gaps in your stash? You'd have thought that dragonflies would be included with butterflies in a set but obviously not! Hope you had a good day yesterday and managed to get some crafting done as well as housework.

  4. Hi Kim,
    I love the dragonfly stamp! I have a huge problem with work getting in the way of my crafting. I try not to think of housework in the same terms I did fifteen years ago! tee hee.

    Happy belated WOYWW,
    Hugs, Kay (4)

  5. Great stamp and great stencil.
    I also like the colured butterflies and the girl in the background...

    Have a great week!
