WOYWW 224

Good morning.
I've a twofer today. I had made such a mess in my studio that I couldn't find enough place to do what I needed to do so I decamped to the dining room (Instead of making the effort to clear it up a bit! My justification for this laziness? I still need the stuff scattered on my desk so what's the point of clearing it away?)
So here is my studio desk...

 I'm sure you can see what I mean, especially as I needed to spread out a bit and do some fiddly bits.
The only thing that you may find remotely interesting is this piece of decorated  acetate and my box of flowers, the rest is just mess!
Let's head of back to the house then shall we?
 Little letter stamps, my journal, ink, scissors and a pen, all sorted. Can't show you exactly what I was doing so here is another page I was working on.
Right, that's my desk(S) this week, for more desks hop on over to Stamping Ground where Julia is waiting with open arms......
Hope you have a great week

I think our desks have a lot of similar inks and things on them today! Love your box and your journal page! So pretty and love the peacock feather. Thanks for visit this morning! Winnie#83

Candace said...

Wish I could just spread and spread out as I often need more things than will sit on my desk for one project and have pack away a number of times for just one project.

Journal looks great

Thanks for sharing your crafting space and have a great week

I have to laugh, Neil, because I am in the same boat with a piled up desk and a cluttered dining room table!!

Loving that box of beautiful paper flowers and that gorgeous journal page! Somewhere I have a stash of peacock feathers that I need to pull out and use for crafting.

Wishing you an inspired WOYWW!

Hi Neil - thanks for popping by - loving your pages - peacock feathers seem to be turning up in all sorts of places lately - some think they are bad luck - but as far as I am concerned they are just beautiful natural gems of colour... have a great week Mxx #82

Decamping to a different desk sounds like the ideal solution to us. We love the peekinto your journal, you make such stunning pages. Thanks for visiting the bears already today.

Helen said...

Thanks for visiting already. I love both of your desks, looks like you can spread out well! Love your journal page.

Princess Judy Palmer said...

I can relate to the I have to change locations because the desk is a mess bit. I also know that the stuff on the desk needs to be left for an upcoming project. However, that isn't usually the case for me. Usually it is that I'm too lazy to pick up. Messy or not, your desk is quite fascinating... in fact the messier the more interesting they are. Love the journal page and the saying on it is so wonderful!!!

Hi Neil,

Ha. When I get my supplies out onto my kitchen table it stays there for a long time! I don't have a designated crafting space.

I think you are right -- I may regret saying I'd share "After" photos next week!!! You'll have to come back to see how much progress I make!!

Happy WOYWW

Sharon Madson said...

Love your artwork, especially your Boog header! You have a wonderful creative space: I think all the interesting things on it could be inspirational by itself! Thanks for sharing it today, and for visiting my space already!

Paul Browning said...

With two busy looking desks, I can see you've been ultra creative recently, even if you can't share yet. Not sure I'd be able to create in the same way as you though lol. I'd have to put stuff away and start with a clear desk. But that's what makes us all different and interesting and able to produce beautiful unique art :) That's the joy of sneaking a look at everyone else's workspace. :) Have a great weekend Pxx

VonnyK said...

Your journal is so beautiful, you are such a wonderfully creative person. Your mess is something to be proud of. It takes a lot of effort to produce that.
Have a great week,

A busy workdesk - I know what you mean about having to just move somewhere else when the workdesk gets too full of stuff!
