What’s on Your Workdesk? #257

Here’s a late Tuesday evening pic as I am just about to tidy up before bed and if I take the photo Wednesday morning there will be, well, nothing on it.IMG_1201[1]

I wanted to make a card using a Lyn Perella image for a friend (nah, not showing you that yet!!) so I have my LP stamps out, my inks and some gelli prints. While the stuff was out I did a couple of mixed media tags. You can also see my two new fave stencils and over in the left hand corner a 3d mannequin I made using die cuts. Not quite sure where I am going with that yet, might be finished by next week.

So there you have it. HERE is a 'how to' join in WOYWW,everyone is welcome.  Here is an explanation of the WOYWW madness.  And HERE is how we're going to mark the fifth anniversary of ourselves, the week after some of us get together for the WOYWW Crop. I will have lots of ATCs for the crop and also for the actual anniversary – hopefully about 10 in total that can be posted so let me know if you would like to swap.

I hope you enjoyed your visit, would love to know you have been. I have to work today (sob) so will  probably be a late visitor. Happy WOYWW!!

Morning Cindy, you've been having fun. Like those tags. And I also like the stamping you have on the left of the picture.
I'll swap ATC s with you, your cards are beautiful so I look forward to receiving an ATC from you.
Bless you
Chris. #33

Looks great! :-) I love the TAGs so much (I'd never know what to do with those LP stamps, but I admire most of the artwork others are doing with them) and I just ordered the stencil with the circles and the diamonds on the left. Thanks for sharing and happy WOYWW, Suzanne

Hi Cindy firstly I would love to swap I am hoping to give julia some ATCs for the crop ( cannot go ... Blah)
You desk is looking very playful and inviting
Second I had to have a closer look at the manequin...... What a clever idea that is now stored away for later use ..... Post wedding, I think I might have mentioned it ha ha

Hi Cindy - your WIP looks fab! I'd love to swap atcs with you, if you have any spare, so just email your details and I'll reply with mine. Have a great week, Chris # 47

Angela Radford said...

Hi Cindy, the tags are gorgeous. Your desk looks really busy today but very organised.

I love your tags Cindy. They are gorgeous. Have a great week, Ela #90 x

Shoshi said...

What a great looking desk, Cindy - so much interest, and it all looks very organised with your blender tools on top of the ink pads. I love the tags, and everything is so colourful!

Thanks for your visit and your nice comment. We are hoping the pressie and card will be well received. I'm not doing too badly health wise as long as I have frequent rests and often crash out on the recliner and have a sleep, and then I can get going again!

Happy WOYWW,
Shoshi #24

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

That dressmaker's mannequin is fantastic. True mixed media! Thanks for your visit yesterday and happy WOYWW from #5.

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

I forgot to tell you the reason you probably got 9 ATCs on a page is because Mary Anne explained your (UK) paper size is a bit longer than ours in the states. And I just e-mailed Julia.

Twiglet said...

Great desk for a good snoop round - love the tags. Thanks for the comment on my blog - keep dumfing - it's good for you!! lol x Jo

Lunch Lady Jan said...

I was thinking of you last night at band practise....was sorely tempted to try blowing a bubble out of my bass and then say 'But Cindy thought I should'!!!
Gorgeous tags, Mrs and those flowers to the left as well. But the thing that I love is that dressmaker's mannequin, fabulous :-)
Hugs, LLJ 2 xx

Hi Cindy,

My eye landed on your tags - they are great! Then they strolled over to the mannequin - VERY cool! I've seen that die before; what a great way to use it.

Your desk looks great and creative this week.

Thank you for visiting me already!

Happy belated WOYWW
Peace, Kay (17)
