What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday? #152

I'm writing this late Tuesday, just before the clock ticks over to Wednesday - with working most Wednesdays I have to try and be ahead of the game. I have just had a tidy up as it has become impossible to work without doing so (the pushing back technique won't work any more) and anyway I do prefer to come home to a tidy workspace (!?!) Mr.Mojo has been visiting so this week I am going to show you some of the works in progress on my desk rather than one big mess which is what I usually end up doing. And to try and tempt you back one of the WIPs in the photos will be the giveaway for May, I just don't know which one yet!

First my little makeshift desk space next to the pc. Two arty birthday cards completed, one with it's own box. (I realise YOU can't actually see them but you never know who else is looking!!) A flowery canvas I just started (I'm very proud of those crinkly flowers made from scraps) and I have a load of buttons out. No longer really sure why. You can also see my little word stamps, I think they were from 7 Gypsies. It is a set of eight stamps, they sit in their plastic box and they always stamp just fine without using an ink pad. They were one of the first stampy things I ever bought, they must be AT LEAST five years old and I wish had more!!

Here we have some of the results of the stamping marathon I spoke about last week - enough to make two 4x4 mini books. No prizes for guessing what the theme is!!

Been playing with my Clearly for Art film. Will post about these bits and bobs when finished, probably Thursday, hopefully with better photos.

Some ATCs, for a 1:1 swap, they're not quite finished. I was aiming for a Tim Holtz style, not sure I've got it.

So you may be asking why I think you are interested in all this. Well every Wednesday loads of arty bloggers get together for a ginormous blog hop to see what's on each other's desk. It is the brainchild of Julia Dunnit of Stamping Ground. So take yourself on over and join in. I will be late, as usual, prowling into the early hours. But for now I must get to bed, I'm bushed. Happy WOYWW all, thanks for popping by, I'll catch up with you later.

Love that paper and how your flowers have turned out. It's tempting to give it a go in my house but I am done with flowers for now. I love how you keep your cutters just under your desk, I do that too.

I think your ATCs rocked the Tim Holtz style. I can't wait to read more about the clearly for art film, it looks really interesting. I like the little makeshift work space. We crafters, we'll use any space you give us.
