Good Morning Bloggy Friends and Fellow Deskers,
It's time for What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday - when we show the world what's going on in our crafty spaces this week and link up over at Julia's Stamping Ground.
I've missed three now, so I'm determined to join in this week, but will have to come back later to do my snouting - Wednesdays are not behaving for me lately. Today we have a long-awaited appointment for my son with the CMHT (Community Mental Health Team). It's face-to-face and we are both now shielding, but we've been his support bubble throughout and we will of course take extra care while we're out and about. Neither of us has slept well and we're very nervous, but I'm feeling cautiously optimistic.
So, here's my desk as it is this morning. It looks like a total mess. That's because it is indeed a total mess. I left it this way after doing a live stream on Twitch TV with my son Tom on Sunday (hence the camera and light set-up).
This was the second time we've done a live stream - last time we were playing with alcohol inks on Yupo paper and this time we were making unisex bracelets with faux leather and beads and trying out some UV resin. Here's a closer look ...
I really enjoy doing the streaming with Tom - it's a brilliant way to connect with him, and chat with his friends on Twitch. They're all lovely, and they say they enjoy watching (though I think maybe they're being kind - normally they're playing games and stuff, so I can't imagine why they would want to watch an old biddy playing in her craft room). It's as much about the chat and banter as it is about what we're supposed to be doing I think.
It's different, but also similar to our little WOYWW community in lots of ways - another example of how valuable and "real" online friendships can be, especially whilst we're living in isolation during these weird times.
Well, I'm off to gird my loins as we need to get going soon - wish us luck and I'll see you at Julia's for a good old snoopy catch-up later :o)
