WOYWW 146 -A Snakeless Post

My hubby took out the trash last night and came rushing back to grab the camera and rush back out.  It turns out he had seen a snake on the sidewalk and thought a photo of it would be great for Workdesk Wednesday.  I did point out that said snake was not on my desk but he was wise enough to know that I put photos of other things on the WW blog post too.  Further pondering made me wonder if a photo of a snake would have had y'all up on your computer chairs shrieking.  The hubby is no fan of snakes but said this one was skinny and cute so it probably wasn't very intimidating. And given our cold weather it was a surprise he got away before his photo session.  He had to be slow moving.  Anyway.... THE DESK:
Here are the piles on the right and left sides:

Here's a blurry picture of the project I worked on--postage themed ATCs for a swap on Saturday and a bottlecap I planned to stick under my truck tire to flatten.  The old man intervened on that one and used pliers and a rolling pin to flatten it.
Here's a project I need to get back to work on at some point. And I took this picture with the camera pointing the regular way and yet it rotates when I upload so I had to use the photo editing software to put it on its side so it uploads okay.  Gotta love it.
This last photo is a pile of brads and twine that were scattered about on my desk.  The twine is twine by the yard I bought awhile ago. I took it with me on my travels recently and it got wadded all up.  The brads are gifts from a friend.

If you want to know why I'm showing off photos of my desk mess, check out The Stamping Ground where tons of folks share their crafting space every Wednesday.  It is strangely addicting.  Check it out!

My dear Princess Judy,

Ha. I would have loved to see a photo of a snake! I've had gardner snakes in my backyard before and I don't mind them. We also have rattlesnakes here but haven't seen one of them close to my house! Amen to that.

Your desk looks quite fetching today. I love the card with the girl wearing her beret - very frenchie.

Happy WOYWW
Hugs,
Kay

beautiful work and I love that desk, it looks yummy , full of fun stuff.

ScrappnBee said...

Thanks for visiting! Ha, never thought to run over the bottle caps...hmmm...my luck, I'd pop a tire! Ha! FYI- My copic storage is empty Crystal Light containers that are rubber banded together. It is just the right size, because the lids still fit, making them portable. Have a great WOYWW! -Amanda 57

Jingle said...

All kinds of fun stuff!

Kate said...

Lots of fab looking stuff on your desk , shame about the snake would like to have seen it lol.

Lunch Lady Jan said...

Aw shucks, I'd have to liked to see the picture of the snake - also the cloud of dust raised by your husband as he legged it down the path!!LOL. I love seeing pics of where folk live - It's almost certain that I'll never venture to your neck of the woods, so it pleases me to know what it looks like. I KNOW I'm nosey - it's a skill :)
Have a fab time this week,
Hugs, LLJ #68 xxxx

Oh please, no snakes, I came to the UK to get away from all the snakes in Canada!!! Your desk looks amazing and lots going on there. Thanks for your comment on my blog, I tried to respond but it got sent to spam (sorry). I think you will love the Lili of the Valley Stamps. Kind regards, Anne #66

I think our DHs get as involved with WOYWW as we do!!! Not so sure I'd like to share my desk with a snake though!!!
Great desk as always, you have such interesting stuff, like those brads. I really need some more brads!!
Happy WOYWW

Squirrel x said...

Now that is the kind of desk I'd love to rummage through - so many play things all waiting to be discovered - just call me Indiana Squirrel! I'd be brave enough. Sxxx

Princess Judy Palmer said...

I was thinking about putting the bottle cap open side down so it wouldn't dig into my tires before running it over. I think I might still try one just to see what happens because now I'm dying to know! Crystal light containers huh? Hmmm.... I like that you can lid them up and take them to go!

Sam said...

Aw! You gotta love your Hubby for thinking of you and your WOYWW buddies!
I love your desk, it is beautiful! And your goodies on it are nice too! You need a pink chair to work at such a lovely chair! LOL! Thanks for your visit Hugs xxx

Princess Judy Palmer said...

OH MY GOODNESS!!! I'm definitely going to have to stock this blog! LOTV goodness all over. I think it might be hard on the wallet though. EEK! Thanks for pointing me in the right direction for this.

Sallyh said...

Morti said...

LOL - you have the same X cube for your pens as I do! Great minds....

Thanks for stopping by my blog (and being a snake owner, I wouldn't have minded seeing a snake on your blog today!).

fairy thoughts said...

I would have loved to have seen the snake... never mind they do move quickly. But your desk is a treasure as usual, as for the piles. . . I think you can get cream (or maybe medium) for them. Hee Hee!

Barb King said...

I so enjoy your sense of humor! The snake pic would have been unusual, different than the usual cat pictures (my cat included)! What a great husband to think of ways to entertain us. Have fun with all your cool stuff. Barb #106

KAT said...

nice deck my friend ! looks like you are very busy and creative !

-KAT-

Susan ~ Killam Creative said...

The snake would have been funny, but even better is that hubby is trying to get in on the action.:) The little girl stamp is adorable!

Thanks for visiting me. The brass knobs and such will be used in various projects as handles or bases. Fun stuff!

Cheers,
Susan #128

fairyrocks said...

Love that your DH thinks to take photos for you, how sweet is he?
I use to just smash my bottle caps with a hammer, then a lady said she puts them through her cuttlebug. Now I am a convert LOL. Your desk area looks very full of wonderful things to work with.
Keep smiling and creating and thanks so much for stopping by.

Sylvia/LittleTreasures said...

OH..I kinda like snakes...but NOT rodents. Won't even look at them in pictures!!! Great things with your desk. Thanks for stopping by, hurrying as I have lots of visits couldn't make many last week, "LIFE" just gets busy. ATC's huh? I love to make them, will have a post next week just had a swap for spring also..Happy WOYWW

MaggieC said...

Can I come over to play with all your brads and other sparkly things, please? I will be very good and tidy up after myself (even though I don't tidy up after myself at home). Snakes don't worry me, my mother would leave the room if one was shown on TV. Thank you for your visit yesterday and your lovely comments on our new stamp. If you want to see some of what Clarity Stamps produce, go back to my post and I have added the link to their web site within that post. They are a small family company in Kent, and have won numerous awards for their stamps and demonstrating by Barbara Gray. Her TV demonstrations are brilliant if you can pick them up via the internet over there on Create and Craft TV on the first Sunday in each month. Have a god week. xx Maggie #5

BJ said...

Thanks for your comment. Love your roll top desk and ALL the drawers you have around, could do with some more myself. Oh and all the BRADS, not an easy one to get hold of these days. BJ

Neet said...

There was I waiting for the snake. Not to worry there's such a lot of goodieness (is that a word?) on your blog today. Love the little girl you have coloured in.
Sorry I am so late in posting but I had one or two computer bloopers to sort out yesterday.
Hugs, and thanks for commenting on my blog.

Lots of fun things happening on your desk! Thanks for the peek. Linda #121

Princess Judy Palmer said...

You must tell me how to run bottle caps through the cuttlebug!!!! I've heard you can put them through the wizard but didn't know you could with a cuttlebug. I still want to run one over and see what happens. I promise not to run myself over!

CraftygasheadZo said...

Oh yes I would have been lifting my legs up, shrieking if you had that snake on your desk! I do love the style of your desk. Thanks for sharing this WOYWW, it's Thursday afternoon now, but I'm still snooping through the list! Take care Zo xx 22

butlersabroad said...

Sounds like hubby has got some snake stalking work to do before next Wednesday!! Lovely busy desk, like the flowers off to the left and cute little Mimi stamp too (PB - which I now know you like!). Love the little mail truck on the atc, and you're going to have to drive over a bottle cap just to see, you won't sleep until you do!!

Hugs
Brenda

Princess Judy Palmer said...

That would be "stalk" not stock! And it will be after I visit some more WOYWW desks.

Princess Judy Palmer said...

We always need more brads! I like that many of these are the super mini ones so they smaller. They are fun!

Emily said...

Glad you liked my colour for Wednesday:) I love your desk! All those drawers, large and small, and all your crafty stuff on there, looks like loads of fun!!
Happy WOYWW, #155

Sherry Edwards said...

I would have loved to have seen a photo of the snake - get your hubby to take the camera with him next time he puts the rubbish out - lol.

You do have an impressive amount of stash there - love all the pens and your desk itself is lovely.

Thanks for your visit to my desk too x

Beachstudio said...

Love that cute little French Beret Girl!
Thanks for the kind words...Hubby is resting and watching the game...sent me downstairs as I think I talk to much and distract him from the game! Yay! Hopefully he doesn't have another heart attack from the excitement!

Sheilagh said...

Now that is a heavenly desk!! Glad the snake didn't make an appearance..x

Julia Dunnit said...

Now see, I flatten the odd bottle cap in my big shot...I think the truck may just be slightly over doing it...imagine going about town with loads of clicking caps embedded in your tyres. LOL.

Lori said...

Great idea with the bottle cap! Thanks for hopping over to my blog this week. Lori #115

Lisa Richards said...

Love your precious little girl with beret! Your workspace looks like a fantastic place to spend some time! #175

Marion said...

Thank you for your nice comment on my blog. Can I just say: I loooooove your desk? :) #117

Lorinda @ Everyday Endeavours said...

As Marion said above "I looooooooove your desk". So many fun cubbies and nooks, similar to mine only larger. I love your collection of brads as well. I recently bought a package and feel a new addiction coming on. And, finally, your projects--love them all, esp the ATC. Happy belated WOYWW!
