WOYWW # 141

Good morning peeps
I've not been around for a couple of days so I apologise, life has just been a bit manic but I'll try to get better, I have a list of things I want to do step by steps for but ....... well, let's leave it at that shall we as you've come to see my desk!
 Surprised? Yes, I'm working indoors on the dining room table; not really because it's too cold outside but because I've been too lazy to unpack my bags from Sunday's class so I kinda just started working from them.
 I picked this dress form up from a charity shop yesterday for the princely sum of £1.00 so am looking forward to transforming it.
 This os one of the pages from Sunday's class which I am going to get finished, hopefully  today.
Then I have an idea that I want to try with this embossing folder, isn't it lovely? it involves the little tree die so we'll see how it goes........
So there's my temporary workdesk; pop over to Julia's place at Stamping ground to see more and I'll try to pop in for a peek later.
Have a blessed and hopefully creative day!

So now you're spreading out inside too!! I am sure you will enjoy altering the dress form. I still haven't done mine...she needs a stand (such a lame excuse!) helen 17

okienurse said...

looks like a great place to work! I picked up a dress form the other day also but it doesn't have a base to stand on. Any ideas what I could use? Hope you have a great week and thanks for sharing. Don't forget my blog candy is still up for grabs so drop by and leave a comment and make sure you are a follower. Vickie #64

Great workdesk... I find it's hard to leave when I decamp to the main part of the house and the amount of stuff to clear increases rapidly! Great dressform find and love your pages.
thanks for your comment and you are in for the scarf draw!

Good find with the dress form and any surface that is free of clutter is definitely a work desk.

VonnyK said...

I thought your desk was loaded with goodies, but now I see you have a portable lot of goodies.
Great bargain with the little dress dummy.
Have a great week.

Hazel said...

Love the way you've started that page. That dress form was a good find. Lots of interest on your dining table (Hazel, WOYW #138) x

Susan ~ Killam Creative said...

Great space, even if it's temporary. :) I love the dress form *of course*.

I just picked up a couple of multi-media books to try my hand at them. I love your page!

Cheers,
Susan

Shoshi said...

Thanks for popping your head round the door, Neil! Once I get some more silver mirror card I can finish the butterflies project. I'm still getting to grips with Sheba, my cutting machine - steep learning curve but I'm getting there! Your work table looks very organised - as always lovely colours and plenty of interest. Gorgeous little dress form, a great find. Looking forward to seeing what you do with it.

You remember last time I was on WOYWW and I asked you what projects you'd used the face moulds for? I'd love to see your work using these - could you please give me some links? I've now made a few with air dry clay but haven't used them yet - I have a mixed media canvas in mind for the large one, with lots of texture.

Happy WOYWW, Shoshi #35

Kim Dellow said...

It is always fun to see what you are up to! Great peek! Kim

Princess Judy Palmer said...

Right away I said to myself that wasn't your desk. I've done the temporary desk thing myself when it is more convenient to be elsewhere. Sometimes a change of location can be fun. Great find for a $1! That will be fun to play with for sure. Great embossing folder and journal page. Lots of great things to see on your post today.

Hands to Work, Hearts to God said...

Wonderful background for your journal page! And I can't wait to see what treasure you come up with for the dress form! Patsy from

Danielle said...

Very spacious temporary desk. I love seeing what you have going on. Really want to see that dress form all dolled up in grunge! Dani28

Mrs A. said...

For a minute there I thought you had done a revamp in the shed. Very up market I thought!!!!!!!! Dress form was a good buy. No doubt it won't look like that for long though. Mrs A #165.

Angie said...

What a bargain that form was ...I imagine you will create something spectacular. I love what you have started on your journal page.

Ohhh Snap said...

Lovely crafty space you have there :D. Thanks for dropping by! #27

Hi Neil, it probably is a lot warmer at the table anyway and you certainly seem to be busy there. Love that embossing folder ... look forward to seeing what you do with it. Wishing you a wonderful weekend. Elizabeth #114

Morti said...

I didn't realise your normal desk was "outside" - I'll have to look closer next time!

What make is the embossing folder?

Thanks for stopping by!

Lisa said...

Great find on the body form. I have been looking for one for the past two years and no luck. Beautiful page would love to see more when its finished.
