WOYWW 257 a little bit of beading

Hi Peeps,
 I nearly forgot it was Wednesday ( although I am writing this Tuesday evening) so I will make it quick, but that's just how Julia likes it....see what it's all about here what's on your work desk Wednesday

So.......Here's my desk, a bit different to the usual. It is my lap tray with some beading on it. I decided to make something to go on a handbag I am making ( yes!. ... for the wedding).
I'm not using all the beads just the ones at the front.

I have also been working on my Documented Life Project journal and have caught up 2 weeks, the first one is to use some cardboard food packaging. Chocolate! What else.
The next page is mono tone .... It had to be red.
The rest of my room looks like this. Much the same as last week.
So join in if you dare, there are lovely crafters and artists out there waiting to share their creative space with you.
Sorry if I didn't get back to you last week I will try harder this week.... promise
Ps please leave your number it really is quicker to find you TA ;-)


  1. First, your link goes to Julia's blog, not YOURS. Second, I see how much you had to sacrifice for the sake of art and your journal. Good thing the prompt happened after or around Easter. Now please go change your link so everyone can visit you. Happy WOYWW from # 5.

  2. I was going to tell you the link is wrong too... love the beads - far too fiddly for me!! Wedding? have you mentioned a wedding, ROFL!! Love the DLP pages. Helen 13

  3. Love your journal pages Janet. Look forward to seeing the bag.

    Hugs, LLJ 2 xx

  5. Morning, you've been busy, I haven't done any beading for ages but it looks as if you are having fun with it. Please show the finishing bag when it is done.

  7. I can't imagine what a labour of love to create a bead bag. Can't wait to see the finished project.

  8. Love the DML pages, especially the chocolate page. Looking forward to seeing the purse with the beading once it is completed. Diane #52

  9. I really like your DLP pages, and your studio looks so efficiently organized. Blessings and happy WOYWW! #52

  10. Your journal looks fun - chocolate works for everything. I just inherited a bunch of seed beads that I must figure out how to incorporate in my scrapbooking. Thanks for the peek at your space. Susanne #62

  11. Wonderful space and projects - just adore that flowery hanging on the wall! I've added you to my ATC list and will try to swap something out at the crop or after if that doesn't work out. Thank you for your earlier visit! Cindy #36

  12. ooh it looks lovely n your room, I like the view from here. of course it was red. It looks great too. I love the way you set yourself small and complicated jobs with a really tight deadline. Must a stress mechanism!!

  13. Janet, your pages look great, and your room makes me want to have a peek in all the drawers!

    Happy woyww to you!

  14. Impressive that you are making a handbag...don't forget to show us all when it is finished. The pages look fantastic. Thanks for sharing. Happy WOYWW. Caro x (#43)

  15. Love the pages - I managed to do the first (January week 1) one but am totally playing catch up :) Is it a HANDBAG you are beading? No, something to go ON it, so a charm dangle perhaps or a flower? Hummm. Will check back to see....

    Happy WOYWW! Getting back to it now my connection has come back :)

  16. What a lovely idea, to make a bag for the wedding - really unusual, and a great keepsake. Do show us when it's finished, won't you? Have a great week, Chris # 47 xx

  17. Just love your creative space!I'd love to dive in there and play all day!!
    I am a lucky Thrift Shop shopper, and I found some fab laces at a country market I visit once a month.There is also a Vintage lace stall at a weekly market 20 minutes from home.
    Thanks Judy #36

  23. Hi Janet. I'm not sure I played this week but still had your email in my box so thought I'd pop over. Your DL pages are coming along! I finished putting mine together last weekend. Now just have to go back and catch up on the challenges. Only going back as far as April (begins the 2nd quarter). But this week I am #70 and Monday I'll have updates of the DLP on my blog.
