What's on your Workdesk Wednesday again (amazing #6 again on the list)
Love how all the comments past say how not messy my desk is, believe me it is but I have promised myself to tidy up after a certain round so I dont have stuff piled up on top of everything else like I used to and that drove me absolutely crazy.
My desk has had many transformations since last Wednesday, too many to take photos of, each hour I was crafting it was changing. You can see the stash of stamps to the left ready to put to ink pad. Can of air near the punch ready for another background technique. Cards you saw in a pile the previous weeks is now in the wooden holder in front of the tv. Looks like a footy of some sort was on tv. Have been staying awake to watch the Tour de France. Sustenance of chocolate and mandarin and nuts close at hand lol
Here are more cards done for Stockings for Soldiers Project 600+ plus done over the weekend with the help of many generous card makers

Michael Jackson from the lovely Carol Clements
ATCs still arriving in the mail, sorry i cant remember who they came from, I took the photo and stored them safely and now I will have to hunt them down to give them credit, if its yours let me know in the comments and I'll put  your name to it
Food glorious food, I had very boring meals this week, mushy soups. But I was busy making homemade wontons. I will post the recipe and how to fold those wontons this week. As you can see the desk doubles for anything, I just throw a teatowel over the craft stuff hahaha
And I wanted to show you that Chinese cooking is one pot as well, this was fried rice made in my electric frying pan. Again recipe coming this week

That is definitely an all-purpose work space, Bridget! And you have so much going....amazing! I like the idea of such a large space, though. I wish I had room to create something similar---although some major cleaning out and rearranging might make it possible! I bought two new wooden storage units with drawers to replace the drawer carts that are falling apart with some of my wood mounted stamps. The units are still in a different room because I have to make room for them!

I guess I never realized how large your desk was until I saw it from that angle. And the other desk looks full of ideas, too. You are an ATC making demon this week. How thoughtful of you. Happy WOYWW from #1

Eliza said...

Your space is so you and what I remember of you all good of course. I love how you have so many projects on the go at the same time and don't get flustered, if you do you hide it well. LOL You really do amaze me with what you achieve, you rock.

Happy crafting

I can't believe how much you have on the go Bridget! 600+ cards, all that stamping and then all that yummy cooking too! Sounds like you don't even sleep, lol!

Great table, Bridget - I could repeat back to you what you said about mine lol! Such a wonderful production line for the soldiers. That's really great work that you do for them. The food looks mouthwateringly delicious as usual! I've got an electric skillet a bit like that, and I use it for melting Friendly Plastic pellets in lol! (Not so good to eat as Chinese food, believe me.)

Can you please tell me how you get a post to be a "sticky" at the top of your blog, like your Stockings for Soldiers post? I've been looking through Blogger help, and can't find out how to do it! Someone suggested I put Shoshi's Blog Shop at the top, at least for a while.

Thanks for your great comment, O My Greatest Fan lol!! You do this ol' Zentangle Queen's morale no end of good hun!!

Happy WOYWW,
Shoshi #4 (can't believe I'm #4 lol!)

Great space you have there. Well done on the stockings for soldiers cards they look fabulous. Sandy :) #39

sandee said...

Such defined and well organized stations for your desk, it always amazes me! Lovely wontons! waving hi from the hills of North Carolina :)

sandra de said...

You are amazing ... your desk would be the most multipurpose of any on woyww. Sydney is beautiful at the moment but Canberra gets all the great art exhibits. So I think it evens out.

You work-table isn't messy, just well used and so much going on. Glad someone else is 'into' the Tour de France, I love watching it. Don't fully understand what is going on half the time but all those lean legs and beautiful countryside as well - can't be bad.

Love the desk - looks like a city planners dream model outlay.
Enjoyed the shot of Christmas cards partly because I have the gumnut stamp so it's familiar.
Nice bit of international cookery going on here too.

fairy thoughts said...

I have no idea why the footstool is on the desk, I probably dumped it there to move stuff under the desk... I will have to show that mess another time, hee hee

Ali H said...

Loads going on & very jealous of all that desk space ! Food look delicious ! Have a great week Ali #60

Queen Lightwell said...

Not too shabby! You have plenty of space left over to work in so it can't actually be too messy, huh? :)
And I see you have wet wipes handy...I keep forgetting to buy those! :)

Neesie said...

What an amazing creative space and desk! I'm going to have to start collecting more stuff!
I'm also watching the 'Tour de France' but are you like me and hypnotised by the bums?...oh no it's just me then (:$)but I think it's the camera angle that's at fault!

Anyway, moving on swiftly your wantons look great and I cook fried rice quite a lot, but will be interested in seeing your recipe.
Tag's and stamps look brilliant too.
There's always so much to see on your desk! Have fun ~ Neesie #14

What a delightfully busy space!

Carol Hornby-Clements said...

The Michael Jackson ATC is from moi. You have so much to scope today with all the art you are making. I think I need to follow your example and get Stamping up a storm


Morti said...

You're right, it really is a multi-purpose desk, and we have been blessed with both stamping and cooking this week. I';m off to seek out the wonton recipe....

Thanks for stopping by!
