WOYWW#151

Morning peeps,
Been a couple of weeks so thought I'd better carve out a moment to share my desk! Welcome to the world of What's on your Workdesk Wednesday courtesy of Julia at Stamping ground. Here is my corner of the world this morning. I took the photo yesterday afternoon all that's changed  are the tags I was working on  are now complete!
Some background finished tags. Done with cosmic shimmer inks
 Some more in progress. (Yes, I mopped up the rest of the ink onto a journal page!)
 The tags are for this tiny journal which is going to be my daily Ranger Uni diary for me to write in on the plane and while I'm there etc. I've been inking the pages and making pockets etc so I can write and doodle away to my heart's content. (only 8 more days till I fly!)
 I've made place for my new storage unit which I shared about yesterday HERE if you want a closer look) I love it, and think I'll be doing more in a similar style to co-ordinate my storage..........
 Lastly; hanging around the back you can see my blending foam storage, a piece for every colour. Now I just need to make covers! In front is a little album I'm thinking of working on, not sure yet.
So, there's my world this week, perhaps I'll see you over at stamping ground where there are plenty more desks to see.

I love the storage idea for your foam pads, at least you know which colour is which, better than what I have at the moment.

Love that cupboard in the corner, I think I might have to pop around and aquire it when you are not looking LOL


Oh those tags are awesome too, please send them my way.

Brilliant! I love the idea of the tags being your travel diary for Ranger U. It must feel like it did when we were younger and Christmas was only a few days away. Haha. Looking forward to reading all about your adventure there. Px

Sandy said...

Wow all looks like lots of inky fun :)

Sarah said...

good to see you, your creations and fab space again...lovely pools of ink there. Has been a while for me too so I need to say HUGE congratulations on Ranger U - so very deserved and what an adventure...

Many, many moons ago I saw a fabulous altered bird on your blog and emailed Tim to say he was missing out on some serious male crafty talent in the UK.... glad to see you are in the spotlight now. Have a creative week and happy WOYWWing... Sarah at 12!

I hope you get to blog each day from Ranger U. I'm getting as excited about it as you and I'm not going. Fab tags BTW.
Hugs Joanne xx

Neet said...

Now that's a good idea with the foam pieces - do they have velcro on the back to stick them down?
Enjoy RU.
Hugs, Neet #3 xx

A wonderfully creative desk as usual Neil! I have had the blending foam storage idea lurking in my head for weeks but I like the way you have done it. Really need to get it sorted as I end up with them all over the place and can never remember what is what! Happy WOYWW Cindy #43

Belinda said...

I am sure you already heard this from previous posts but I am so happy you shared your secret to storing your foams. I always try to guess which I used for what but this is a great idea. Might I ask what you use to stick them to the paper?

Princess Judy Palmer said...

Oh my gosh! Ranger University! How exciting. Well, I'm definitely going to have to check back after you've gone there to see what wondrous wonders you've created. I absolutely adore what you've done to your storage unit. Thanks for sharing the before and after photos of that. Great little journal, I love the tape measure bits sticking out from it. Every page is a work of art.

Jacqueline said...

Oh good lord! Yet ANOTHER fantastic project from you! I do love your work! Heaven knows what goodies you are going to come up with once you come back from Ranger Uni !! I am REALLY looking forward to see what insipration you come up with!
