What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday: Happy New Year!


Hello, my dear blog friends!  I hope you enjoyed your holidays and are all set for a wonderful 2012!   My desk today is deceptively spic-and-span.  I not only used the push back method, but the more drastic push out (to the floor)...


I have started a new prayer journal.  My sister Patsy says making art in her prayer journal has helped her to remember the verses she has meditated on so I decided to follow in her footsteps...


I am using a journal I received from Sarah for the WOYWW Pay It Forward last year.  Thanks, Sarah!  Have you visited Sarah?  She has a Mojo Monthly feature in her blog that has wonderful projects and artist interviews.


That's it for now and you might want to take a peek at more desks joining What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday!  Happy New Year, everyone!

Now that is a clever idea and it would definitely help you to remember the verses. Your desk is looking very tidy and nice to see the floor is put to good use.

So so pretty. I love your drawing style. Love the journal but try tho I might I never seem to be able to keep one up. I use the floor too, but better a little tv table as satellite add on to my desk. Saves my poor back :)

I love your prayer journal, you are very talented! I always have a pile on the floor - sometimes the desk just isn't big enough, and if I push back anymore, its all going out the window!

I completely love that you have a selection of mediums to work with. And lots of whatever material you choose and it looks much easier to do mixed media. Computer screen close at hand too. Nice work space you have!!! *smiles* Norma
