WOYWW #244 – What’s On Your Workdesk? Wednesday

Oh yeah, it’s Wednesday again…….

again? Ooer, haven’t really achieved a lot since last week but I have plans and here is my desk.IMG_1023[1]

Centre stage a sample of a little book I am making with the kids on Saturday 8th for National Library Day. Yes, I know I said I wouldn’t be doing all these kids activities anymore, but I am. Well just this one. Well, just at half term. Actually Just this month…. ……… Anyhoo we have three storytelling sessions, two craft activities and an author planned and that’s just for the children. If you still have a library don’t forget to drop in and tell them you love them this week. Yes, awful as things are since we were outsourced, I’m still a believer. (I didn’t however say anything was prepped yet so I expect a few more grey hairs by the weekend. GRIN.)

Also lots of lovely paper pads and two boxes to alter, I can feel a February giveaway coming on (YES, I know I’m behind AGAIN).

Here’s a piccie of my new storage system for my spectrum noir pens (they were a real bargain….. and I have no willpower) and my not-so-new promarker storage. I was going to splash out on a flashy plastic one but think this works quite well and cost nowt. There are also a few copics which actually are my favourite alcohol markers but these are quite old now and I probably won’t replace them as they give up. (Leaving more room for additional SN colours……. nature abhors a vacuum).



Right too many words. If you want to know more, go to the home of WOYWW here and Mrs Dunnit will explain. Join in why don’t ya?

Working today so expect me on the eventide………..(Addendum: never even got a chance to post this until late evening. Expect me tomorrow?)

Nature abhors a vacuum....and so does Cindy!! Ah you make me larf. Especially about the kids projects - really you're just too nice...I love the idea of a book of flowers, and pretty sure you'll enjoy it. Am mid-"altering" a small box for my washi collection and hating it. Guess that says a lot about me!!

I love the way you write your posts - they make me laugh! Of course you can't have a pen vacuum, the world would tilt on its axis!!
Good luck with all the library stuff, I did know about National Library Day actually. Hope it all goes well!
You coming to Crop this May?? Be good to see you again if you are!
Hugs, LLJ 33 xx

Are Spectrum Noir markers alcohol markers like Copics? I have about (counting on fingers) 5 or 6 Copics -- can't believe how pricey they are and half the time Hobby Lobby won't even let you use coupons to buy them. Happy WOYWW on Thursday! I am late visiting, too. ~ Laura #95

Hi Cindy,
Great new storage for your SN pens. I have a few, but haven't really got the hang of using them yet. I can't afford Copic, so thought I'd start with SN. I really need to push myself and learn to use them.

What can you NOT make froma toilet paper roll or the middle of the paper towels??? LOL

Thanks for the earlier visit.

Good luck with your book project - I knew you wouldn't hold out! Great marker storage. The bespoke ones are sooo expensive! Thanks for your visit, have a creative week. MMx #40

I had a bin similar to your clear one for my markers. It had a handle and I loved it. BUT... I outgrew it. Now I have a little suitcase style case kind of like yours and... I've filled that one. What to do? I do have a few duplicates that can be weeded out but there ain't much room there. I'd love to paw through your paper pads on your desk. I'm a terrible paper addict if you must know. Good luck and have fun with the flower book project with the kiddos.

I love your storage and the way you write. I seem to remember doing a flower book when I was a child. Have fun, Thanks for sharing. Happy Belated WOYWW. Caro x (#57)

I'm not a big pen user but love your storage.. Hope your kids activities go well once you've planned them...! Happy (late) WOYWW Helen 7

Love your new pen storage Cindy. The old one works so why replace it? You can always stick a bit of fancy paper on the sides to tart it up if you feel so inclined.
Good for you doing the library days - enjoy!
Hugs, Neet xx
