WOYWW #203

What's on Your My Work Desk Wednesday.
I found a new photography area, the woodpile out the backyard. 
I promised Kay (505WhimsyGirl) that I would show her the mini tripod I carry around with me in my handbag to hold my point and shoot Nikon camera, it stops the shakes.
 This photo shows the tripod with an led light for photographing while videoing, mounted on its shortest length.

normal length tripod

 This one shows its extended length, its almost as big as my 
Canon EOS 600D

extended length tripod

 Some ribbon I bought to do a class on photo boxes, foam core board to make card stands, glue gun seems to be my go to adhesive tool these days
Trying to make a birthday card that is way late. and another project with photos and concertina on the go.
My debut project went up on the Spellbinders Explore Beyond International Flair section. Check it out on my blog 

Hop over to Julia's Stamping Ground to see what others all
over the world are creating on their desks

Weekly Top Shot #79

I captured this storm approaching through our dining room window. 
(that image above the storm cloud is not a sign from above or a UFO, its a reflection of the lights lol).

WOYWW #202 Video setup

Whats on Your My Work Desk Wednesday
I was testing my camera tripod to see how it went with taking photos on its own or even a video. Opps can still see the Ichiban noodle box (still full of noodles) being used as a photographic prop lol
The drape of blue was used to photograph the wedding shoe I made. You can see the shoe on my craft blog. The drape to the right was just hanging there as I had the material ironed and didn't want it to crease when I needed it. I still love this U-shaped set up....
....this desk seems to be used as a 'spare' desk now as I cast a shadow over my work when I sit at it, I don't like working in my shadow....
 I went to a fundraising for breast cancer craft day on the weekend run by Capa and Cate Revill, the bag is still unpacked as I was sick on the weekend as well and have not ventured downstairs to unpack.
This is the desk that was meant to be a spare but it is my favourite one to work on because of the lighting. Beautiful flowers that I purchased from Ann-Maree at Craftyas.

Hop on over to Julia Dunnit's Stamping Ground to visit vicariously more desks around the world to see what everyone is up to.

WOYWW #201

What's on your Work Desk Wednesday
 I can't seem to get a happy position in my craft dundgeon to photograph. I have lights in two spots and my desk seems to be the best place for light etc. You can see the white sheet is being held up by Ichiban Noodles hubby got from Costco. A few stamp goodies purchased from my favourite store Craftyas. You can follow Craftyas on Facebook if you live in Canberra and she also does mail order. No I am not trying to hot glue my iphone lol
Some ribbon on a spindle that my friend Sandra had made for me. flowers from Craftyas, mango in a container from Costcao (gotta have my sustenance or midnight snack)
To view some of my projects that I make on this messy table, visit my craft blog.

WOYWW #200

What's on your Work Desk Wednesday
Change of layout, I found I needed more room to my left and right to hold stuff, the chairs just didnt give me enough room. Easter eggs in the jar are for photographic purposes lol, but I might cave and eat them as they are the nice ones with filling inside. Love my Spellbinders dies

I also had to have a newer larger photography section for the larger objects I needed to photograph.
