What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday: Mother and Child


Happy What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday (or whatever day you are visiting)!  As you can see, there is not much difference in the neatness of my desk from last week but at least I was able to unearth my sewing machine to do some altering (like I shared about in this post).  I have also made some progress in my Mother and Child painting...

  

Here are some other closeups of my desk.  Right under the painting is a brown envelope my daughter doodled on while waiting in line...

Pretty doodle, isn't it?  I can use it in a collage or something.

Then there is a wonderful ATC that I traded for in ATCs for All, and a tag I got from a pair of sandals I bought.  The butterfly illustration is something I can use in a collage (by now, are you wondering if I throw anything away?)

 

Here is the badge souvenir from my elementary class reunion last Saturday (gosh, I am that old?)...


and the World Vision progress report from a child whose education I am sponsoring...


World Vision is a "Christian relief, development and advocacy organization dedicated to working with children, families and communities to overcome poverty and injustice."  Sponsoring a child and making a difference in his/her life only costs $13.90 (£8.70) a month.  Anyone interested?

In my previous post, I shared about Artsee Bloggers, a new blog/directory.  If you are a blogging artist/crafter, you might want to have your blog listed.  It is a great place to find new blogs and be inspired! But for now, be inspired by what's on the other desks in the What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday list!

Gotta love your desk, the painting, the sewing machine, and all the fodder you have that you can't quite throw away. It's always fun to watch you create art.

Thanks for the Artsee blog site. I'm off to check it out after reading your post about it.

Great stuff on your desk this week - I wouldn't throw that tag away either, and in fact I'd probably use it in its entirety.

Hi Peggy, I love your painting - the mother has the most beautiful eyes. The doodle is brilliant and just has to be used. Why would you throw anything away that could be used in a collage - I collect all sorts of ephemera too. Hope your week is a good one. Elizabeth x #99

Hello Peggy,
I visited your blog today. I saw you on Hope-Filled Living. Your paintings are so pretty and unique. What a special talent you have. Me and my daughters just started a new blog, and we would love it if you could visit us and follow. I would really enjoy coming back to visit with you and seeing all your wonderful, creative artwork. Hope to hear from you, and have a sweet day. My Mother's name was Peggy who I loved so very much.
