WOYWW: Almost No Desk in Sight!

Happy Wednesday, dear blog friends!  It's time once again for the State of the Desk address (otherwise known as "What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday").


After getting back from Boracay beach, I had to catch up on my projects and so my desk is quite busy today.  Here is my altered book with the niche I cut out (Elizabeth's instructions for how to cut the niche here)...


Here's a book I bought with cute little fabric projects and the giveaway I won from Corey Moortgat, The Art of Personal Imagery.


with Corey's note to me.


And here is a necklace I won from Renee.  Yes, I am happy (no wonder I love joining giveaways!)


Here is one of the sketches I drew while listening to some talks during the conference I attended in Boracay (multi-tasking!)


And the painting I am making to celebrate reaching an amazing 400 (well 408, now) followers!  Not finished yet but as soon as it is, I will make my giveaway post.  I am so grateful for each of my followers!


That's it for the State of the Desk.  There's not much of the actual desk to see because it is so full.  Although I hardly had time to visit desks last week, this week, I hope to visit more of the desks on this list.


And, if you missed my post about Boracay, where I was last week, you might want to take a peek at my pictures of this wonderful beach paradise.

At first I was having a terrible time leaving comments on blogs tonight. They didn't want to post. NOW I get "service unavailable for at least two times I try to visit. I'm geting really frustrated.

On a brighter note, I love the way your niche is coming along. It is SO well done. I also am in awe of that painting. Happy WOYWW from # 7.

What lovely things on your desk! I just love books signed by the author; how special is that. And such a nice inscription.

The necklace is too dang cute. No wonder your happy!

Your finished painting is amazing! I'm more of a doodler. I would love to draw but just seem to tense up when I try. I will keep giving it a go.

Happy WOYWW

I do believe your desk is busier looking than mine:-) Mine stays clean for a day or two and then it's right back to ten projects in motion. I love your sketch and your painting.

Tarnished Rose said...

Your desk resembles mine at times!

I have to ask. How did you get the book pages glued together so you could cut out the niche?

When aren't you busy really Peggy? And there was I thinking you'd gone to the beach for a break! I love the art youve done for the giveaway - you do have a very gentle brush. I thinkyou were very brave to cut such a large niche...I wonder what you're going to put in it.

Oh Peggy, what a wonderful post. Your altered book is coming along nicely - your niche looks perfect, I'm wondering what you're going to put into it.

Congratulations on winning the giveaways - I have Corey's book too, how special to have a personal inscription in there.

Your 400 followers painting looks amazing - I love the colours, beautiful.
