WOYWW 182

Good Golly Miss Molly, it's Wednesday again?
You're kidding, right? Julia, the host of this weekly gathering must have pressed the speed dial.......... But, as it is share your desk day as decreed, we must obey so here is mine (marginally neater than last week)
 First off, the overview. Yes, that is daylight as I left the door open and took the pictures Tuesday afternoon before going to work as I knew I would not be going back there till today. The printers tray at the back is taking shape, but more on that tomorrow (Perhaps....) Hhhhhhmmmmmmm, just noticed how precariously pile up things are on the right, must sort out! So what's going on on my desk?
 There's the tree I made yesterday out of the snowflake rosette die.
 Love these blue green stains and walnut is one of my go to colours.
 The tins from yesterday's post are still hanging around on the desk, along with a new Vintaj embossing folder, which is great to use
Not sure what I'm going to do with this but I'm loving working with them. I've made somethinmg I REALLY like with Vintaj, I just can't share it yet!
So that's my desk this week, last week I managed to visit virtually everyone, don't think I'll manage to repeat it this week but I'll try to see as many as I can.
Hope you all have a blessed and creative week.

Great looking desk this morning...or night it is here! That printers tray is shaping up nicely and I love that Christmas tree...going to have to try that! Looking forward to seeing the Vintaj project. WOYWW isn't up yet but thought I would post anyway. Have a great week. Vickie

Hullo there Neil lots and loadsof inky fun going on here on your desk! and we dont get super hot weather here as a rule being where we are near the coast, it sometimes gets up to 28 or 30c but that is hot as mostly about 25c for a good summer -we are humid thoguh but been in England enough to know which climate I like better - I think that South Africa must be lot hotter cos of what Tertia says on her blog and on comments on mine sometimes!,
Thanks so much for popping over and thanks for sharing ~ happy WOYWW! Shaz in Oz. x #1

oh your desk looks so warm and inviting! LOVE your snowflake tree and those tins right below are so awesome. I have already loved that man with the umbrella-reminds me of Charlie Chaplin! No WOYWW for me this week, but wanted to stop and say Hello!

Lovely creative desk as always - love the look of the printers tray and I like your finished tree - I started to make one exactly the same yesterday but with broken china and frayed burlap (my go to colour) - going to use them as table decorations for the big day. Have a fabulous creative week and thanks for sharing - Sunshine Girl #25

I love the tree! I have several snowflakes I made up for my Christmas cards but haven't used due to the depth, it would make them too much to post!! so need a project... thanks for stopping by already. Helen, 8

What a sweet little tree! Your studio always looks like you could just jump in the photo and have a play. Wish it could be so, it would be too much fun :)

Great pictures Neil. Love your trees, I always enjoy seeing how crafter's take dies and stamps and turn them into something else. Trying a bit of that myself at the mo! I have coffee & I'm off to snoop! Take care Zo xx 45

Kate said...

Bloggers not playing fair today so this may be a duplicate post. What I said was........
"Great looking tree Neil, fab idea. I've bought some Vintaj bits but not had time for a ply yet. Hurry up and blog your project, I need some inspiration!"
..........or words to that effect.

Love the printer's tray - always wanted a full size one! - and the Christmas tree looks fantastic, as do those tins (will go and have a closer look at the other post)... Your other pics have really made me want to get home to play with my alcohol inks and BigShot embossing again... only a few more days! Happy WOYWW!

Hi Neil. I love your version of the Rossette Christmas tree. I have seen different takes on this. I particularly like the crystal addition to the top of the tree. I think I might have to try this. Beautiful job Neil. Happy WOYWWW to you from Helen 37

Your desk looks so busy and creative Neil. It's amazing what you notice when you take a snapshot of your own desk isn't it?
That tree is gorgeous.
I'm also impressed with your desk hopping skills ;D

Elizabeth said...

As usual, Neil, your desk is a pleasure to snoop around. The tree is terrific and those stains are fab ... I think walnut must be the most popular of TH's colours, ever! I'm still making my late way round WOYWW land but enjoying the trip. Hope you are having a lovely weekend. Elizabeth #67
