WOYWW #395--

Welcome to the last Wednesday of 2016….which makes it the last “What’s on your Workdesk” of 2016.  And with such a seemingly bizarre, stressful, annoying year  that it has been for so many…it’s been great  that we can count on visiting Julia at The Stamping Ground for some crafting comradery and grounding. 

So jumping in to the whole reason why we are here, and as part of that grounding, centering, and soul-fulfilling act that is art, I took the day off yesterday and spent half of it in my craft room.  First cleaning my second and third desks.  And for those who remember my last post a few weeks ago, this mostly in an attempt to find missing stash I know I brought in.  Found the WoW Embossing powder, found but didn’t know was lost the Tim Holtz snowflake charms (x2) but still missing...the Dina Wakely Mica Sprays.  And that is really annoying!

And then I got out my poor neglected art journals; they have not been touched since I took a workshop with Dyan herself in October!  So on my clean journaling desk, with the stencils somewhat sorted, I jumped in getting all paintey and making a mess.  What you see is the 2nd page I played with.  Not sure what I’m going to do with it yet, but it was fun getting there.  The tray upper left has water, in my attempt to keep my stencils somewhat clean.  There is a mug of egg nog…nicely nogged—it is my day off! LOL!  the whole back are piles of my stencils; not as neat as they were when I started (and no; can't blame that on the Nog).  Oh, and my new grey craft mat comes from Ken Oliver Crafts…billed as the Best Ever Craft Mat. I like the heavy feel, the fact it won’t crease or curl; but I have to say, the non-slip, or to me, stickiness is sorta driving me nuts.  Also it doesn’t seem to clean nearly as nice as the Ranger craft mat. 

So that’s me; now go back to Julia’s to portal off to other creative desks.  I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and got lots of crafty stash (I got the Everything Art year-long Wanderlust online course! Yipiee!) And I wish everyone a very Happy, Healthy and Prosperous 2017! Stay Crafty, my friends!

WOYWW #393

These Wednesday's are just flying by!!  So I almost missed another "What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday" blog hop hosted by the lovely Julia at The Stamping Ground.

Now, brace yourselves; this does not reflect the rest of my craft room;

But yes; this is a shocking view of my main desk.  It is in this current state because I finished my Christmas cards last week. And near the end of my creative chaos, I noticed that things that should only be at this desk...weren't.  So I figured it was a good time to get a good clean-up in.  So the box of white brads was found, as was the bone folder, the little pack of new X-acto blades, and my blue distress blending foam.  Still missing: my white embossing powder, and my brand new, never opened package of Dina Wakley Mica Sprays.

And here is a birthday card I made for my Mother..who we think will be 93; maybe 94.  See what happens when you keep lying about your age! LOL!  

So there is my least the main one; stay tuned as I progress around the other desks in my attempt to find those sprays!

Have a great week everyone.
