WOYWW - A Proper MESS

Hello!

It's Wednesday - so time to fly around the globe peaking at craft desks!  If you want to join in the fun head over to Julia's blog and check it out!

I spent the whole weekend taking classes with Wendy Vecchi (I may have mentioned this once or twice.... haha)  so haven't had a spare minute to tidy up!  My actual workspace is pretty tidy, but the surrounding areas are piled high and a proper MESS!

Yes - that is a pile of Wendy's new ART PARTS!  They arrived at the store the day the classes started - perfect timing!  So of course I had to grab some up before they disappeared!  We got to play with them and they are just AWESOME.... can't wait to do some creating of my own, now that I've done some project's "Wendy style".

Here's the other end of the counter/desk....

Supplies packed up getting ready to go to a Donna Downey workshop this weekend!  Saturday, it's all about the "Inspiration Journal"... I'm really excited to meet Donna and learn more about "drippage" in person!  Should be a great class.

And.... one last picture.... this one's for you Hels.... I've been teasing her... OK.... maybe torturing is a better word.... I've got this bag started, and it's getting pretty full.... full of stuff I'll be bringing to her when I arrive in the UK in.... 38 days!!!  She's been dying to see INSIDE the bag... no dice.... here it is!  Any guesses???


Have fun snooping!  Thanks for stopping by to visit!  Have a great day!!!

OMG, Ellen. You get to meet Hels? In England? What an awesome trip you will have. Looks like papers are in the bag, but I promise not to say anything so Hels won't snoop too much!

I'm a neat freak, and I don't think your desk looks bad at all. I also like how you store your scissors. You have some pretty clever and stylish storage solutions. Happy WOYWW (no. 12).

Didn't join in WOYWW this week, feeling a bit rough...runny nose and all that goes with it.... Doing a bit of hopping from my sick bed and I thought I'd stop by. Love all the new goodies and can't wait to see what's in the bag. Think you should show sneaky peaks, just to tease Hels a bit more!!

akilli melek said...

ooh a real desk and so tidy even with all those supplies. I am wishing DH would build me a real desk like that. I am stuck with a white patio table. Can you imagine...white...with ink... I use a lot of wet wipes ;-) Well I can dream (and drool at your desk). Enjoy your UK visit, I'm on countdown as well. ta for sharing. caroline #36
