What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday (week 73)

This is what my craft desk looks like today - if you don't know why I'm asking 'what's on your workdesk', hop over to Julia's blog 'Stamping Ground', where you'll be able to find links to over 100 other desk to have a nose around should you feel inclined to do so.

Back to my desk - the figures are my attempts at whimsical characters and the book at the back of them is the first two pages of an altered board book - both projects are for the second week of an online course called 'Art, Heart and Healing' being offered free of charge on the 'Willowing & Friends' site.

Oh you can also see my shiny new crayons I've got especially for the course from the online site Artifolk who were recommended to me by two lovely blogger friends.  I found an old glass jar to keep them in - the crayons that is!

I thought you might like to see what's above my desk - I have two large shelves the first of which is full of little plastic containers

They contain all sorts of crafty goodies and maybe I'll show what's inside one every week (just in case there's nothing else of interest on my desk!)

As they are made from clear plastic it's easy to see what's inside them.  I bought them from Aldi last year, I kept going back to buy more as they are so useful and look good too.

You can also see some wire mesh drawer units in amongst the plastic ones, these were a Christmas present from my sister last year.

Maybe I'll show you what's under my desk next week - although that would involve me having to get the vacuum cleaner out so I won't make any promises - lol !

Thanks for looking - I'm off to have a look at some of the other desks now.

What an amazing craft room - I love it.

I too am on Tam's amazing work shop- not as quick of the mark as you - not enough hours in the day

I just adore what you have done so far.


Susan Allan said...

Are you going to put the whimsical characters into the altered book?
It's lovely to have new crayons but even more lovely to find a glass jar to display them in....I love glass of the beautiful, simple things in life.

Nicks said...

thats a definitive creative desk, and makes me feel very unorganised thanks for sharing!
Sorry I am late passing by, my internet went down wednesday evening, how inconvenient

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

Thanks so much for the sweet comment you left on my blog. I'm still moving slowly, but trying to start visiting people who visited me. Had to laugh at your comment about the assembly line. It does look like it, after I reviewed the shot.

Those are some serious storage containers. I love see through, too. Makes it handy to see what is inside. I signed up for the class, but I can't seem to get the videos to load. I love your little whimsy gal, though. I have a lot (and I mean a LOT) of oil pastels, but no watercolor crayons. I wonder if they would work. Happy very belated WOYWW (# 15).
