What's on Your Workdesk? Wednesday #136

An explosion of red paint that's what!! Needed a messy crafty fix so I've got two altered slide mailers on the go and a couple of canvases that might become a shadow box, or might not, haven't decided yet. Why red? Well, firstly the cap on the paint has snapped off and the tube itself has cracked (yes, at one stage there was red  paint everywhere until I realised what had happenned) so it's a case of use it or lose it. Secondly I've gone a bit oriental for Chinese New Year which is fast approaching. Good to dust off some of those stamps and images. One at least of these projects will be in my art draw this month so I need to get a wriggle on. Don't know quite where they are going yet but expect more red paint, gold paint and gilding flakes, dragons and geishas!! Lush!

Not much will get done today as I have to go in to work 9 - 8. I have been told to go into 'head office' first thing for a briefing. Not sure why, probably about restructuring/redundancy/outsourcing. Again. Note to self: Look for new job! Am finding these constant re-organisations very stressful. Aw heck it might be good news for a change.
Anyhow enough about me, get yourself over to the droll musings of Julia Dunnit at Stamping Ground (Julia's posts always make me smile!!) who hosts this weekly bloghop/brag and see who's who and what's what this week. Join in yourself or just be a looky lou - you never know who you might meet!

PS: Late NY resolution - STOP using exclamation marks!!

Ah, the exclamation habit is a hard one to break. The sentence looks so dull without one. I'm having a hard time typing this without putting any in, in fact, it makes me miserable, so I'm just gonna do it!! Oh, that's so much better!
Good luck with the briefing - hope it's not bad news.
Hugs, LLJ #26 xx

Aw! I love my exclimation marks! :) Good luck at the head office. (almost used an exclimation mark there) Thank you for reminding me of Chinese New Year. I probably would have missed it, and we always have a chinese takeout feast to celebrate! (oops one slipped in) Have a great WOYWW- Amanda 34

Love that red color! Seems that fate decided just right on that one, lol! Happy WOYWW! --Meechelle #114

Seems I might need to think about that same resolution!!

NO!!!! Use MORE exclamation marks!!!!! Okay, we might mistake you for someone easily excitable, but what's there not to get excited about? There are canvasses, boxes, frames, and lots of red paint. That sounds like a lot of fun.

Hello Cindy,

At least you were able to salvage some of the red paint. It'll be interesting to see what you decide to do -- keep us posted!!!

Happy WOYWW!

I do hope your work briefing wasn't too traumatic. I struggle with not using exclamations!! oops. Thanks for the comments on my blog. I also have a teenage daughter similar to yours can take up to 300 photos of herself and that is before she goes to the party. (struggling not to use!)

Maria Simms said...

So, did you have red paint all over you when you went to work i wonder! Your desk looks great and be nice to the exclamation marks!!!

Happy crafting!

Hi Cindy,
Thanks for stopping by my blog. As for my crock pots, trust me every one will be used. Now on to your questions as to what's on my work station right now...NOTHING!... I spent 3 days cleaning it up so I can start to make way for another artsy explosion :) Hope everything works out for you at the briefing. They are very stressful. Take care, Lori

Anonymous said...

I never thought about using canvases as shadow boxes. Interesting idea! I've made mess with paint before too :)
