What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday # 160

Every Wednesday blogland goes a little crazy and we all start nosing around each other's desks to see what's what. Well what's what is Wednesday comes round very quickly!! If you want to join in with this weeks WOYWW then hop on over to see its creator Julia Dunnit at her blog Stamping Ground - she's always good for a giggle!!

So here's mine, relatively tidy (!) with a couple of WIPs - and I really haven't staged this. No stamps or inkpads - I think that when I'm in the mood for stamping my tidy gene runs out the window!! I love this little canvas which I started a while ago, I think it's finished apart from some words and I'm dithering between 'Everyone has their own journey to make' and 'Everybody has their own road to travel'. Big difference huh? But I've already been dithering for over 24 hours. (Must learn to commit....).

This is a bit of a sneaky preview as I think this will be  next month's art draw/giveaway, we haven't had a canvas for a while. And while I'm on the subject the current draw has very few entries (see top right if you want to remedy that) and closes on Saturday.

I must also give a bit of an apology to those who left comments last week - I have to confess I didn't get to visit you all. I was working Wednesday till 8 and had a little family emergency when I got in which continued on to the next day, had to go out straight after work Friday, caught up a bit Saturday but did my handbag tutorial instead of visiting, burst pipe Saturday night, had to put up a fence panel Sunday and then the sun came out so we sat in the garden with a bottle of wine (well it might have been two) until it was time for the footie. Hopefully this week will be less traumatic and it is my last late night working on a Wednesday (yay!!) tomorrow so hopefully I won't have to make excuses in the future!! Happy WOYWW!!

Beautiful canvas, Cindy, and a very tidy desk! I've got nothing at all to show on my desk today but am directing everyone to my workdesk at the craft show last Saturday instead!

Happy WOYWW,

Ditto, beautiful canvas Cindy, I love the way you have everything set out so neat. You certainly had a lot going on didn't you but I'm sure all will fall into place.

Hi Cindy your canvas is gorgeous. I absolutely love it. What a cute little critter with his crumply shell. Hope you find the right words. WOYWW Hugs from Helen 89

Peggy Cain said...

your canvas is out of this world. enjoyed my visit have a great day

SandeeNC said...

A tidy gene, see I knew I was missing something, cause I hate cleanning up after myself!! lol Now let's discuss the "footie" thing...what is that?..cause drinking wine and then footie just doesn't make sense to me unless you were getting a foot massage and heck, I think I'd fall asleep if I drank wine and then got a foot massage, sounds wonderful to me! lol waving the #49 from the hills of North Carolina :)

I like the "everyone has their own road to travel" version better. My hubby once pointed out that all those gorky romantic "reality" shows like Bachelor and Temptation Island have the participants talking about their personal journey, so now journey has become a joke word with us. Also, we don't watch those shows, so how do we know this?! But we do.... Anyway, I totally digress... love the works in progress on your desk. The canvas and the card above them are looking very cool.

Monica said...

Well i thought i had a busy week. Yours was none stop. the canvas is beautiful.
