What's on Your Work Desk Wednesday: Too Much!

Happy WOYWW, blog friends!  Yes, there is just too much on my workdesk this Wednesday.  After last Wednesday, I had a tidy up but right after, it started to fill up again and so, today is no different! The drawer is open again to make more workspace.


Among the hodgepodge of things, aside from the art materials, I dumped my mail on my desk and you can see copies of The Word Among Us, a daily devotional my whole family reads (or at least I hope my kids read their copies), an ATC that I got from a trade I made over at ATCs for ALL, and...

a lovely surprise from fellow WOYWWer, carola bARTz. Carola takes amazing pictures so I assume the awesome picture on the card she sent is one of hers.  She also sent me a really cute glitter snowman ATC for my collection and...


a lovely bird tag.  Thank you so much, Carola!  It is so wonderful to get surprises in the mail, isn't it?





 
On the shelf is a portrait that my daughter drew when she was young.  I found it in the attic and decided to enjoy it for a while.  One of these days, I will write a post about her entitled "So you think you can't draw?" and tell you how, when she went to college, she found out she could draw after all.  Perhaps those of you who think they can't draw will learn something from her!






Laying on the open drawer is a background I started, using paper scraps and gesso.  Some of the papers were extras from the ones I used for my latest painting...

the giveaway for One World, One Heart.  I will tell you more about it when I make my OWOH post on January 30.  On the shelf above my painting you can see the ATC I'm giving away in my previous post.

I got so engrossed in making this painting (and our internet connection was so slow over the weekend) and so I didn't get to visit many of your desks for our WOYWW link party.  Now that it's finished, I hope to visit more of you.

Have a good day

I missed visiting you last week, and I apologize. My time was not my own. I see you are going to be in the OWOH blog hop, too. I'm working on mine, but nothing as lovely as your painting. And that background is the beginning of something wonderful, I can tell. Happy WOYWW from #10.

Yep, I know that feeling - sometimes we need to take time away from the WWW and pause, the painting you have taken time out for is lovely, and I am sure, has far more to it than can be seen in a photograph, see you at one world,

Oh my gosh where do you actually work on? Must admit I do that trick of pulling out the drawer for more space.I cleared my desk this week and you can see the area I normally work in 8" x 20". Love your daughters picture. Mine wouldn't look any different now. Can't draw for toffees.

It is amazing how crafters can create such works of art in such tiny spaces. I am another who cannot draw, but I do appreciate those who can, like you.

Andria said...

That painting is fantastic :) .

Thanks for stopping to look at my blog this week and for your lovely comments. Thank you also for your suggestion as to how to get that last blog. Sadly, i had already tried through Internet Explorer and Firefox and neither system worked on that pariticular missing blog. There was one this week too that was a problem, but I used Google and managed to get in that way.

Kenneth Copeland said...

What a very busy desk! Your work is just gorgeous.
