I'm travelling into a new way of working, a new country, a new language, and a new hobby which I'm passionate about. Come with me for some of the journey...

WOYWW 171

Hello Wednesday... hello workdesk... hello What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday!  Once you've seen WO my W this W, why not pop over to the Stamping Ground where Julia Dunnit is hosting her weekly list of crafty workspaces around the world so you can see what everyone's up to.

I'm posting rapidly (two posts again, if you've time for a browse), and off to catch a train again.  For now, here's my mess - no time for tidying up after myself at the moment, though generally I like to get things a little bit clear after each project, just so I can find what I want when I start up the next thing!  But not just now...

 













Inks and papers and stamps left over from the last couple of projects... New re-inkers so that I can make myself some homemade inkpads with those colours... A tiny chest of drawers awaiting some altering... 



And the leftover inchy masks from this card which I took a photo of in close-up as I thought they were very cute - next thing I knew, it was out with the UTEE and they're on the way to being some sort of necklace!  









Have to work out how to make them hang properly... but that's for after work - off to the train now.  Will be doing the rounds then too, and for the rest of the week - happy hopping!




That's another fine mess you've gotten me into!

I loved the card you made using the inchie masks but well done for using up the bits to make a necklace! Very retro looking and I am sure you will work out how to make them hang right. Happy WOYWW, Anne x #82

Everything looks so fun! The new reinkers look like great bright colors. Can't wait to see how you work your magic on the chest of drawers. The jewelry piece looks really interesting. Gift idea??!!
Have a great day!!

You've some lovely things on your desk, inchies can be good fun to play with but boy they sure can be fiddly at times.

Ooh ! lots of fun action on your desk this week ! Too much tidying can be bad for you - just go with the creative energy that a pile of stash can bring !!! Hope the necklace behaves & lies down for you ! Ali #59

I am so loving your messy desk as they are lots and lots to look at and lots of inspiration thrown in for good measure :-). Got to ask is that a huge gold inky spray or something else lol. Loving those inchies. Happy Woyww :-) Kerry xxx

Love the inches, really must get myself some UTEE, never tried it. Oh and thanks for reminding me about making my own Autumn Distress colour pads. Still hoping they will release them again though. Thanks for stopping by BJ#100

H Alison

Neet calling - now have I seen that inchie work before? Somewhere else me thinks. That's because I am late posting on here! Am sure I saw it yesterday.

Love the idea of the necklace - if you have finished it now why not pop it on the challenge blog too.

Thanks for sharing
Hugs, Neet 17 xx

Hi Alison thanks for popping by. I love how your desk colours perfectly match your blog - great coordination! You look like you are very busy at the moment. I wanted to follow that piece of string to find out what was at the end of it!! Happy WOYWW to you from Helen 5
