Wednesday Workdesk

It is time to partake in Julia's What's on Your Workdesk blog hop where I'll show you mine even if you don't show me yours.  Here is my workdesk as of this morning:
Picked up like it usually is on Wednesday, but with a few more things piled on it than usual. There is some fishy paper for a swap card, some candle dies to experiment with, sample cards to show off, clothespins to make a thank you gift with, and a zippered pouch of fun new embellishments to play with.
Above is the Saturday desk, which is more exciting. I had just finished making two of those boat cards you see there.  I have daubers, designer paper, the donuts from last week, paper straws, the catalog I copied from, toffee twine, dies, my glasses, and just a random sampling of things.
I thought I'd share my Sunday desk with you as well to show you that creativity happens all weekend (if I'm lucky).  You see a birthday card front and center, many of the same things piled up along the right side of the desk, ribbons, papers, dies, and more random stuff.
New toys from the local scrapbook store. It is Blue Moon Scrapbooking which is an on-line place but their warehouse is in town and you can visit and shop it when they are open.
I broke down and bought three of the new A Muse inks even though I said I wouldn't. I'm not really an ink person, but I did want my A Muse customers to see the new inks combined with the new papers. 
Last, but not least is a card since I'm all about card making.  My friend set me this to show me what she made with her new stamp set. I love it! I love that the ladies have their toes in the waves. I think the water might be a bit nippy though, what do you think?!

The Fine Print: There is a lot of miscellaneous on my desk so if you want to know about something, just ask.  The inks are (clockwise) azul, marigold, and hibiscus. The ladies are from the Bathing Beauties set by A Muse and the waves folder is by Darice (you know I had to get one too!).

Lots going on on your desk, too, Judy, and lots of fun stash to play with! Thanks for your visit, and I'm glad you enjoyed seeing a bit more of my new ARTHaven. I keep promising I'll do a video tour of it one day, and I keep waiting till it's tidy, which is silly because I might as well wait forever lol!!

Happy WOYWW,

Your photos illustrate a point I often make: It doesn't matter if the desk is messy as long as the mess is always changing. :-)

Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier and for the nice comments.

Happy Woyww,

Love the junkyard findings, although I had to double check it says 'bliss'....I wasn't sure how you'd use a 'faucet' embellies with 'piss' written on it!! Love this ink you cave and buy more.

I like that your desk gets messier as times goes along, but what I like best is those little water taps.... how cute are they and funny that Julia had to read closer .... so did I ha ha
have fun with your lovely ladies too

I think the Sunday desk looks the most exciting - and is that a prima doll 'witch' that I see? Mmm, haven't noticed that one before. The card of those bathing beauties is great and yeah, I also love the way their tootsies are in the water!! Thanks for your earlier visit, Cindy x

Love those bathing beauties with their toes in the waves! I can't believe how neat your desk looks in the midst of creating! Within 5 minutes I have 4" to work in!

Bernice said...

My drawer may be tidy but I would love to be able to see the surface of my desk!! Lovely tidy desk there, even on the busy days!

Ohhh Snap said...

Very tidy with lots of fabulous goodies! Your swimming card is so cute and I can't wait to see what you do with the faucets lol.

I can't stop thinking of iron filings as Eileen Fahleens now. I've put away my watercolors to start the experimental process : D. #64

Love your desk! I've always had a soft spot for roll tops or the old fashioned kind that closed with lock and key. Just something nice about it! Love the bathing beautys card! Thanks for visiting!

Well, Judy. Just about made it to your desk before the week ran out!! Some great things going on there - lovely made cards; and some great new stash. That circular die is gorgeous.
Thanks for visiting already. we are indeed truly blessed living here. Although we have actually only lived in this bungalow for 2 1/2 years, some of our friends around here go back over 20 years! Soooo precious. We had some great celebrations this week with them all.
Take care. God bless.

Love the colours of those new stamp pads I bet you are off to get some more soon if you haven't already. So sorry I have not been by earlier live has been unbearably busy for me and I am doing a mad dash at the end to say sorry to all that have visited me. I do hope you forgive. Love your beach lady's card too.
