Hi Peeps
Time again to visit the world of workdesks via  JULIA   at the stamping ground.
Join in if you dare.
Here is my desk this week ... not much going on I have a stinky cold so I will be brief...

Main desk
A little body (GD Erin) was here earlier playing with the ink pads.
On  the left are some old stamp handles that handyman brought home from his office. 
Various paintbrushes left from the weekend. Sadly the tube of milkybar buttons is empty.

Messy desk
My documented life journal and some gathering of 'stuff'  for a play date  on Friday.
 I hope I am well enough to go to.

My DLP page for last week... repeat a shape and colour.... life's a circle

This weeks page .... it is a flap over another page. I used some happy mail I received from another member, I did this page in a frenzied 10 minutes when I realised that that's what the happy mail was for.  its all splodged together with gesso.....Quite different for me
Any questions ... just ask
I will try and visit back if you leave a comment....when sneezing allows

  23. Great journal pages. Yep, I gotta get going on all the things I want to do........ Too bad I can't call in sick. Oh well.
    I hope you feel better soon. Allergy season is starting here so people are sneezing and coughing.

    Happy belated WOYWW

  24. I wish you felt better. I've been lucky this year, even though this has been the worst winter I've seen in about three years. So, please feel better soon, and make that "date" today.

    Those are beautiful pages in your journal. I especially love the circles, but I'm also a big fan of collage, too. Happy belated WOYWW from #3.

  25. Oh my what Lovely pages you created even with a poppy Cold.... Hope your feeling better soon.

  26. So many things to play with and so little time.... I must admit I've never done a journal, but I'm starting to think I am missing out on lots of fun. Thanks for visiting...I wasn't sure about the ScanNCut at first, but after researching, I decided to jump in the deep end....Regrets, no.. bit of a learning curve, but I did buy it for my own artwork, fussy cutting and general shapes.... I can actually see myself using this every day... Hope you have a great week and happy crafting.
