woyww and what you see.


Hope everyone has had a wonderful new year and looking forward to another year of desk hopping curtesy of the lovely Julia. 

So what is on my desk?   A whole lot of nothing?  Or a whole lot of projects?   Depends which side of  the desk you sit on.  Let me walk you through it all.... anticlockwise.

Starting with the teenager's formal photos ready to be scrapped. An envelope still waiting to be mailed for an ATC swap.  A completed canvas of flower doodles that I started on the weekend. The book I am going to read ..."Atonement".  Loved the dvd so now going backwards and reading the book. A list of other books I might like to read.   Just above the list a beautiful card from the lovely Roslyn which came with gifts of embellishments, fibres and notebook.  There is a project in that little bag of goodies just waiting to happen. Right next to my glasses a pile of ATC's that for once in my life I have completed way before they are due.  I now realise they probably shouldn't be in the photo.  Oh well we move on to,  a little bottle of glimmermist which I looooove and considering buying it in bulk because I use it on everything.  

 The final thing on my desk is a piece of plastic left over from some packaging.  I will be turning that little piece of plastic into an "altered acetate ATC".  Wow try typing that quickly!!  All these bits and pieces are lying on an old envelope that I use to protect the mat while I mess with paint, wax, glue etc. etc.

Now if you are a woyww you can see my desk is full of potential.  If you have stumbled onto my blog via some cyber error you would probably agree with my family....... "it still looks like a whole lot of nothing!!"

  2. Love your canvas - it caught my eye as soon as I landed. You have lots on there to keep you quiet for ages and I must say I love the photograph, what a brilliant idea to take one like that.

  14. Whole lot of something to us crafters though! Let me first say - Atonement...much better book, quite different from the film, I think, let me know what you think! The canvas is lovely, so fresh and smiley cheerful. I love that top photo from the formal...please show us what you do with those too!

  15. The book includes much more of the beginning of the story which was more or less completely absent from the film. Just thought I'd mention that, lol. I like the sound of your acetate ATC, would love to see it when it's finished

  17. Definitely full of potential- I think the crafter in us finds potential in everything, which is probably why we have rooms full of empty boxes, bits of string/fruit string bags/sweet wrappers- it releases our inner squirrel, lol. Shaz x

  21. Definitely potential and nothing short of. Here's to all the things to be made in 2012. Happy New Year.

  22. For sure crafters see the value in "a whole lot of nothing" more so than those normal people do. You've accomplished a lot and have the potential to do a bunch more! Whoo hoo!

  23. buy mica powders and make your own glimmer mists,

    it's great fun and far more economical, you can get he ingredients from pharmacy and the pump bottles are really easy to pick up in 'pound/thrift' shops

    I think I lost my glasses on your desk...

  24. Your desk certainly is full of potential - love the idea of the acetate ATC - you might just have given me an idea because I rescued a nice piece of acetate from some packaging the other day (Hazel, WOYWW 108) x

  35. I love your flower doodle, Sandra! It's really beautiful. Thank you for your nice comment on my blog. So far I haven't had the energy to be in my ARTHaven much since Christmas so poor Sheba is gathering dust!! Hopefully soon I shall get to grips with her! I wasn't idle yesterday though - I made a video, and I'll be uploading the post about it to my blog today.

    Happy New Year and happy WOYWW, Shoshi #60
