Something a little different today: I've often seen posts on some of my favourite blogs labelled "WOYWW" and they always intrigue me. "What does "WOYWW" stand for?" I imagine you asking (or, at least, that's what I wondered the first time I saw it). Well, it stands for "What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday" - and it's given me a fascinating insight into what many other crafters get up to, so I thought I'd try joining in. Here's what's on my workdesk today:
The picture frame and buttons are for a project I'm working on at the moment, inspired by a lovely lady I met at a craft fair at the weekend; if you pop back in a day or two you'll see the end result, hopefully. I'd just finished painting the frame when I took this, and you can see my foam "paintbrush" sitting just behind the frame, wrapped in a plastic bag to keep it damp so I can do the next coat without having to wash out the brush. The papers are, of course, from the beautiful Everyday Enchantment pack. I've been making some quick and pretty cards with them, and really ought to have put them away before getting the paint out but, well, you know what it's like... The inkpads and stamps are left out from those cards, too, and I went straight back to using them once I'd moved the frame out of the way. In the top right-hand corner you can just see a couple of craft magazines - I'm addicted to these and had actually just subscribed to this particular one when I decided to take the picture. Underneath it all is the ubiquitous (well, when I'm crafting anyway) Stampin' Up! grid paper. I can't work without it; I plan layouts on it, draw templates on it, test ideas on it and you can see I've used this particular piece to wipe my paintbrush on, as well as having at some point punched out a circle from it for something or other.
So there you go. Something a little different for you. I've enjoyed giving you this little peek into my craftroom, and I might even try to join in for another WOYWW next week.
Thanks for visiting, I'll be back soon!
