WOYWW88

What's on Your Workspace Weds... if you'd like to join in or even just tour desks of the world, head over to Julia's place. Lots of inspiration to be found...

I immediately thought about Bleubeard and Elizabeth when I heard that Wichita was due for another foot of snow yesterday. I'm hoping she has a fallout shelter full of canned goods. In my little pocket of NJ, we've been spared the worst of all this weather but it just started snowing again as I write so maybe I just jinxed myself. I don't have a dog or cat to include in my blog post but I am sort of getting friendly with the squirrel that lives on the other side of the wall despite all the contraptions my pest company has come up with to trap him. Maybe I'll work out some kind of tapping code to communicate with him...



My space after I finished the card on yesterday's blog post....

1. Lots of things upside down, I see... hmmm...

2. Until I break down and buy a Bow Easy, the forks are tools I use for making bows (via a tutorial on Paper Craft Planet).

3. The container on the top left section of the desk holds my various bling. It will be a sad day when I run out of my favorite tiny crystal rhinestones (front and center). I found them on sale once and picked up as many as my greedy little hands could carry to the register.... does that count as my frugal tip for the day? Lol.

4. The tea cup holds a trickle of Mandarin Orange herbal tea... so good with honey.

5. I've come to the conclusion that in the same way that Elizabeth Taylor said if she was caught on a deserted island the one thing she'd want with her is her mascara...... I'd want my Fiskars trimmer. (That doesn't make sense, but it's my fantasy and once I've turned all those tree barks into paper, I'd need a trimmer to craft with, wouldn't I? Wouldn't I?) I mention this because since my trimmer is my favorite crafting tool, I took Understand Blue's lead and joined Fiskar's Fiskateers. You can, too.

6. Peeking out on the right side of the desk are some My Favorite Things clear stamps. I'm going thru a "line images" phase. I like coloring in. I must be channeling my inner child...

7. Unlike a previous WOYWW, when my desk calendar was 1 year behind (I explained that), my little perennial calendar cube at the top center spot on my desk is only two days behind. I'm getting better....

Hope you had fun... I promise to comment on your blog if you comment on mine..... *smile*

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

Hey Cindy, thanks for thinking of me. I noticed you are starting to get a bit of snow, so yes, you may have jinxed yourself. A squirrel? Poor baby. All it wants is a place to get warm, and it looks like you are providing it.

I was wondering what the "chocolate" was. I couldn't figure it out. And is that a rolodex? I altered a bunch of the cards for a swap one time. OH, and what is the thing with numbers and a blue turtle on top? Snoopy minds and all.

Gotta admit, I have NO idea how to make a bow with forks. I'm not a bow maker, but I thought they were made with ribbons (grin)! Happy WOYWW, anyway!

Julia Dunnit said...

Love the card for your sissy. Your box of bling is bigger than mine, no fair!! The calendar on my desk which you can never see because I use it for propping stuff against is 4 years old..Scrapbook LO inspirations, so I can't throw it out. But I've never actually used it either. Another great buY!

Marjo said...

Thanks for the peek and sharing, hugs lucky #2, Marjo

Looks like such a fun and creative desk :)

Spyder said...

I was going to ask about the forks, I had a baby fork one week, but it was there for no reason other than I forgot to move it! Your desk does look very busy, have a happy WOYWW

Lovely busy desk there and I love the card you have made for your sister - such a sweet idea. Thanks for sharing (46).

Looks like a lot of fun things on your desk. You need to show us how to use the forks to make a bow. I make crappy bows. I am so glad we didn't get the 6 inches of snow last night. Hope it misses you too!

Carola Bartz said...

How do you make bows with forks? Sounds intriguing! Perhaps I should look at that tutorial - although, I don't make bows anyway. Hm. Perhaps the Fiskars site then.

Starla said...

Since I seem to be incredibly ribbon/bow challenged, I will have to check out the "fork" tutorial!

Emily Leiphart said...

LOL, I was wondering what those forks were doing there! I have that exact same paper trimmer!

Nicky said...

Lots been happening on your desk - glad you explained about your forks I was wondering ~ Nicky no.9

lisa said...

It certainly sounds like you're having a good Winter in the US. Luckily we have been getting a bit of Spring weather this week in the UK which has been lovely.
What a busy desk you have, so much happening. I used to love my Fiskars trimmer until I discovered my guillotine and now I couldn't be without that.
Thanks for sharing your space.

Would never in a million years have considered forks over a bow easy!! And I just can't believe the ending to the ring story either!!! I think I would have slapped her!!

What a lot of creative things on your desk, so much pretty stuff. How do you join the Fiskarteers and what does it do for you? I love my Fiskars scissors and sharpeners, and my lovely finger blade. Would not be without them.

I love reading your WOYWW posts. They are always amusing, and I love playing "I-Spy" with your desk to see what products I recognize.
