This is my desk this week. Thought I would share a wider view and then an up close for you to get a peak of what I am working on. I had a couple people ask me if I ever used any of my ribbon cause they can see the shine from the outer wrap on the spools hanging on the wall. Those are the new/extra spools I bought when they were on sale.(I am a huge bargain hunter and why buy one when two will be a better deal! Anyone relate?) When I had the idea to use curtain rods to organize the ribbon I had so many ribbons spools and there wasn't enough space for all of them so I decided to hang the full ones and keep the partially used ones in a box under the desk. As you can see I am starting to break into some of them now.
My desk is really trashed out towards the end of a project because I never seem to be able to stop long enough to get things put up. I like having everything close at hand and being able to just reach out and grab when I needed something. I had also hoped that it would help me to put things back but...no dice.
I have been working on a 12"x12" canvas using mostly Tim Holtz products for a class I was asked to do at WLS. I am not a floral type person and it has been a real struggle for me to step out of my comfort zone and try to do what I call 'girly' stuff. I can kind of, sort of, maybe combine a little grunge in with it and get it done but...not my forte! I am currently working on a bead fob to hang on the fob chain on the right.
This week has flown and it seems like I didn't get everything done that I wanted to do but I did get around to all the desks this week!! I really enjoy WOYWW and I am willing to give up a little housework to see what everyone else in cyber world is doing in the arts/crafts world. If you would like to see what I am talking about visit Julia's blog, Stamping Ground, she is the Queen Bee and leads this group in all sorts of fun things!
Okay, I am off to check out the other blogs. I am so addicted and need my fix of WOYWW! Check back tomorrow and I will have a couple finished projects up for you to view.
