WOYWW 682 – tiny journal….on my desk…


Happy WOYWW, as I sing along to the tune of Tiny Bubbles! We will be looking all around my room and MOST of the surfaces are clean or have real work in progress. My main desk has bits for the Journal Petite class, including cut-up paper towel roll tubes (lesson 8 Cardboard Roll Stamps), rolls of washi tape (lesson 5 Bindings, Flaps and Tabs), a handmade circle stencil (lessons 12 & 13 Play with Circles and Embellished Circles) a hand carved stamp from a eraser (lesson 15 Stamped Surfaces)and some clear plastic, transparency sheets and a plastic bag (lesson 16 Plastic Bag Printing)!

Blimey! And for all that, it looks pretty neat LOL!

As does my side table – let’s see if I can find a comparison shot from last week…Well I did but it’s a pretty neat shot. Believe me it looked a LOT worse then you see here for most of the week, I promise!

Even my desk-by-the-window is mighty tidy.

Making room for more paint-y mess soon, as I scored a handful paints I have wanted for a while, Quinacridone Violet, Gold, Magenta and Red and Nickle Azo Yellow. Yum. Best of all they are profession quality AND both reduced in price with an additional 25% off. I may mix up a few small bottles of a more fluid mix, as they are quite thick straight from the tube.

Doing a happy dance. I have plans for them for sure. And because I finished my blanket, I also have a kinda pattern that I MAY begin at some point, lounging around on my printer:

Phew. That’s plenty. Hopefully I’ll be off for my hop early this week – we MIGHT be seeing a plumber at some point so really need to make sure I’m ahead of the game. They are like an elusive and rare, shy bird. If he says he’ll come, I drop everything. Good thing (knock wood) nothing is actually leaking at this point LOL!

Happiest of WOYWW days to all.

  6. Omg the Plumber, I remember seeing one once! I’ve tried to encourage all my Bruce’s to take up plumbing as they cast around for careers, I mean, they’d never be out of work!! Hope he turns up and can sort out.
    I read the list of stuff and the lessons from whence the need arose behind I looked at the picture…gosh, I wasn’t expecting that, It looks like the desk of a blue Peter make where it’s all ready and waiting but not yet in use. A bit envious of the clear space I can tell you!

  7. Sounds like you’re bursting with energy Mary Anne! Whatever you’re on, I want some too! Love the circles on your window – I must have missed that post as I don’t remember them being there before! Enjoy your new paints and have a happy week! xx zsuzsa #20

  8. Love the colours of the windows and bet thats great with the sun on them,

    Take are and stay safe ,

  9. For one moment there I thought you were organised but I see that you are merely clearing ready to make a mess!! lol
    That’s fine with me. Just enjoy! now you’re showing the whole of the window, I must admit I really like the idea even more.

  10. I’m quite liking your window dressing, all those coloured rings, still letting in the light but also masking the inside and outside a little bit. The paints look like they are normally a bit expensive, so great bargain there! Have great week. Happy WOYWW!? ((Lyn)) #16…same as last week!

  11. Sorry Mary Anne – I wrote you a wrong comment as first, you are welcome to deleted it 😀 I Love all your circles. Must be a wonderful sight when the sun is shining in. Getting new materials are so great, that is really making one happy. 😉 – Super to see your desk today.

  12. I love the way you have your Desk sorted and all the great art you have done. Thank you again Julie for being here

  13. I just love those widows. they are so colourful and bet they are pretty with the sun on them, great bargain on the paints

    Take care and stay safe,

  14. Looks like you’re ready for more crafting fun here. Loving the window dressing it’s looking great. Wishing you a very happy and creative woyww, Angela x12x

  15. I love all the circles in front of your window, did you make that? And doesn’t it intervere with the light? I never dare to hang things like that in my atelier, afraid I can’t see the real colours of my paint anymore then, but I do like these ‘blinds’ you have there very much! Have a great week, love from Holland! Marit #4

    • I did make them and these windows get a LOT of sun but the way it comes in and the times of day it comes in means I need a light anyway. Adding them to the top part of the window means the light can come in below and the open circles let MORE in so I have not had much trouble. But then this IS England and it has been dull and dreary more than sunny 😀 Thanks!

  16. the paints sound a real bargain, and if you can make more fluid versions too, then it’s two for the price of one! Such lovely tidy desks! Happy WOYWW Helen #1

  17. Some fab projects on the go Mary Anne. Loving how the window dressings are coming on too. Stay safe and Happy WOYWW. Sarah #?
