Workdesk Wednesday

Actually it is Eat Like a Gluttonous Pig Wednesday (cookie reception, holiday work party, and holiday dinner with friends), but there isn't a blog challenge for that.  WOYWW 132 brings you my desk that looks suspiciously like last week's desk.  Ummm... I mean the clutter looks just like last week's.  In fact, most of it has not moved, or if it did move it was just a bit back and forth or up and down. Other than that, there has not been a lot going on at my desk due to being busy and having company.

Some items to note: the prescription bottle is still there, now on the top of the desk.  The prescription has not been transferred over yet and I'm down to just 4 pills.  The bag of stickers is still there with the stickers strewn about.  In that same pile are envelopes to address still.  On top of that pile is one of the snowflake cards I shared with you yesterday.  There are ribbons, twine, and yarn on my desk from making cards with tags.  My reading glasses (that I left at home yesterday!) are on my desk next to a new box of glue dots. I'm not sure what the box of glue dots is on.  My bottle of water is up there too.  It is too cold to keep it on the floor this time of year because ick, who likes cold water?  I mean, besides normal people?!  There is still no room under my desk (don't expect that to change any time soon), but I did rummage through the pile of papers lined up against the right side of the desk and tossed a bunch of it.  One last thing to giggle at, near the ball of red yard and to the left of my water bottle are several pairs of scissors, two with black handles.  After I took the picture and looked at it, I thought, "There's a gun on my desk?" and went to look.  Nope, it is those scissors.

Same old stuff from last time.

That darn prescription bottle.

Here's the pile of stuff next to my desk that I shared last week. This rather depresses me as I had hoped to have this picked up by now.  There is another box of glue dots down here on top of  pile of random papers and a container of jewels.  That's new from last week

This is sad.
I cleaned out this pile of papers.  I swear I did!


The project I'm still working on is address holiday cards to get them in the mail.  Why is that so difficult? I do not know!  All I know is it is not getting done.  I also made some cards with tags on them last night and I'll share a couple with you now to prove that I have done some crafting.

And thus ends WOYWW 132.  So far, this challenge has not inspired me to keep a clean desk.

Oh I can dither or England rather than get cards written and addressed, you aren't alone! Worried about your prescription now, will it be sorted? Made me laugh about the scissors...photos do that, you KNOW what's on your desk, then the photo fools you.....I'm so glad you don't keep a gun on your desk!!

That desk looks pretty productive and it is really hard to get to things at this time of the year when it is soooo busy... impressed you are getting anything done... the cards and tags look amazing...xx

Lots of business on your desk... and I think that writing the cards and addressing the envelopes is even worse than actually making them!!

VonnyK said...

Your cards are really nice and I do love a creative desk.
Have a great christmas.

I'm doing a quick drop in on the WOYWW desks to see what you've all been up to this week. Looks like we are all busy busy this week getting ready for the big day.

Oh your desk made me laugh so much - you could do a Where's Wally theme of the Not-a-Gun every week and we could try to spot it!! Much more fun than clearing up....
Hope you enjoy all the festivity today and over the next week :)
Hugs, LLJ #34 xx

I find there is no point tidying, the stuff on my desk multiplies when I turn my back, especially at this time of year. Hope you have got your prescription sorted now.
Thanks for visiting me and for your kind comments on my beach hut.

Happy WOYWW! (bit late, but I'm a slow typest and an even slower reader! Are have a real desk filled with fab stuff! My desk was looking a bit the same old same...sorry can't email the jam, if I could i would!! Box like a cake, well, I bought that for my mum as she used to do sugar craft and used it to out all her little iced flowers in for her cakes, then, she stopped doing that, and...(cleaned it first) gave it back to me!! So now it hold crafty paper, felt and silk flowers, and is very useful! (It was very cheap too!) Thanks for my snoop and for stopping by!

I got a kick out of your last sentence. I'm not sure that's what the challenge is all about, especially if you are not a neatnik like me (grin). But I appreciate that you look at WOYWW as a challenge. I'm sure Julia will laugh at that, too. Happy belated WOYWW from #5.

Love your gift tag cards - simple yet very elegant! I've got a few more cards to do and might need to steal the idea if that is ok with you?

Hi there Judy, thanks for popping over and yes we can all relate to getting cards made and not posting thankfully all but three of mine are now dispatched, phew - now can focus on those other lists.. yay! what fun! Happy WOYWW Shaz in oz.x

Princess Judy Palmer said...

@ Sue--oh yes, do steal the quick tag card ideal! I made 10 different tag cards in one night so they are definitely speedy.

TangolikeRaindrop said...

Lovely cards and that looks like a fun desk to rummage through. :) I avoid the whole card writing thing by not writing out cards! Terrible, I know. :/

Shirley Pumpkin said...

You should have seen MY work area before I sent out all my cards! Looked like a craft store had exploded in my room!
