Happy WOYWW. Is summer over? I may very well be with my knitting mates, depending on the weather, but as is my way when knitting and WOYWW collide, I will try to get to as many desks as I can before the day spirals out of control. My tiny little LifeBook one-sheet booklet caused quite stir, desk-wise, as I dragged moe and more stuff out while I worked on it:
It isn’t the worst you will have seen here, but it was pretty untidy for sure. I thankfully begin the day with a tidy desk, after a proper sort out so I could take some photos of the project. Phew. Let’s call last week an anomaly and say no more about it.
Now, I suspect many of you might think I have been unable to mend my wicked ways, and have simply shoved all the chaos off on to one of the other desks. I have not! the “messy desk” is also pretty clean. I have my large tub of extra-heavy gel medium and the nearly empty tub there, ready to mix up another pot of more fluid gel medium for art journal use. That massive pot is still more than 3/4 full. It’ll last me a loooonnnnggg time.
The only other thing of note is my solution for my little glue bottles. The word “hack” used to mean using something or doing something to solve a problem that is unusual is very overused, but I’ve come over all click-bait-y and popped it in the title. Dear me. I claimed a little trio of those very small jars you often see at garden centre buffets, all washed out and saved to take dressing or sauces with lunch to hospital appointments. With a simple wrap of some pretty washi tape around the middle, they hold my Tombow glue bottle, one precision tip bottle full of Art Glitter glue, and one precision tip filled with matte medium, slight watered down to a more liquid consistency.
Note the broken tipped needle held, ready to de-clog as needed. I am all set up for an art journal page. I have an idea that needs to be realized. MBD, a little sad this week, if you imagine the hyphen. They came out like this, so I left them, although Beauty Weds Tot – Drops Dead might have been slightly less awful.
Maybe next week, something uplifting? Probably not – good news rarely sells papers like bad.
Hope you all have a lovely WOYWW day. See you round at yours very soon!
