It's a lovely autumnal What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday here in Norfolk UK - not much happening on my workdesk this week, although it is very crowded and full of potential as usual! In case you're wondering why I'm rambling on about workdesks, check out Julia's Stamping Ground where it all happens every Wednesday and you can have a snout at creative spaces all over the world.
Here's a picture of my chaotic shambles of a workdesk ...
Now let's have a closer peek at some of my unfinished projects and half-baked ideas ...
So, from left to right we have ...
- a partially-filled art journal
- a plain gift box waiting to be upcycled
- some pony beads ready for an experiment in DIY enamel dots
- one of my nearly-finished tag books
- a half-eaten pack of tic-tacs
- three bottles of PVA because it was on offer at Hobbycraft
- a little collection of second-hand finger puppets waiting for a revamp
- a handful of Hungarian Forints
- vintage children's books for repurposing as art journals
- old money and playing cards from the fleamarket in Budapest
- pre-cut pieces of scrap patterned paper ready for my tag books
- on top of that some Budapest ephemera to go in some pocket page spreads
- on top of that again some salvaged tags waiting to be recycled into something gorgeous
- some lovely wood veneers and a stencil from Jennifer's Happy Scatter Etsy shop
- empty jelly bean box for a Christmas workshop idea
- magazines I haven't had time to open
- a sketchbook
- a notebook full of big ideas
- my under-used Cricut machine
- a bag of empty toilet rolls which will be turned into mini books and stuff
- a bag of cute alphabet beads which will be perfect for some future project
- my son's keys and deodorant ...
My little workroom doubles up as a spare room, so this is where my son has been camping out, on a little fold-out bed squeezed in between my workdesk and the storage units (he has so far resisted the temptation to rearrange my carefully organised supplies just to wind me up!)
There seem to be two recurring themes in this post -
- Too many ideas, not enough time!
Now I'm off to Julia's Stamping Ground to see what everyone else has been up to this week and check out some workdesks where there has been some real action! See you there :o)
