WOYWW # 204

What's on Your My Work Desk Wednesday
I cannot believe its May already!
The photographic woodpile shrunk, it got so cold here last week we had to use half the pile, but I rescued these as the ones we ordered aren't as pretty for photographic purposes, the black stand in front of it will be my photographic prop, covered up of course.
I decided to showcase my computer desk which is upstairs. I didnt want it down in my craft room, otherwise I would hear the pinging and get distracted from my crafting concerntration.
The laptop is eye level and so is the second screen, I love using two screens. Post it notes to remind me of things, jar of tooth pick and lip balm under the second screen. Clock so I can remember life goes on  outside of the computer LOL. I also use the computer to do my work course so its good to have it upstairs. White pillow at my feet to keep my feet warm. One cup of tea and one cup of honey and lemon-my favourite drink in winter to keep the cold away. The drawer under is full of stuff as it is too low for the keyboard.
Reminder: More so for myself that May 29th is the anniversary of WOYWW #208, we are making an ATC to celebrate. Check out Julia's blog here to read all about it if you want to participate and get creating-myself included.

Surprise!!! Last night I had friends around to craft and this is the result, tables ready for the visitors




















I had to make a new photographic station to the left as the light is just above it. There are the two desks laid out ready to play with 3 other friends, we had lots of laughs and they made 2 cards each.
Of course I can't always show you what I am creating as it is a secret until published by Spellbinders or the local Craft store I design for Craftyas but the projects I can show will be published on my Craft Blog

Waltz over to Julia's Stamping Ground to see more desks.

Great workspace you have. And completely agree about the Honey & lemon. My Mother used to make jugfuls with real lemons copped up, boiling water & a few spoons of honey. I still make it myself too in winter. Beats the heck out of bought honey & lemon drinks. My Dad liked to add ground ginger to his- really nice, but I add a few shavings off a ginger root to mine, then strain it out. Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #81

Karen Ives said...

Fantastic workspace, so much to look at.

SNAP. I have a two monitor set up but both on the same computer. Does yours work like mine? The two monitors act like just one, so I can drag stuff from one to the other. Love that :) Also the pinging! I will be mid-craft, and then BLOOP, and I am mid-whirl to face the Mac before I even realize it. DOH!


Happy WOYWW! Getting an early start, for me :)

Eliza said...

Hi, I think your wood pile is perfect for photographs, so much colour in the wood and so appealing to the eye. Like usual an excellent setup for people to come and play, looks like I might have to make a trip that way soon to do just that. LOL

Happy WOYWW

Krisha said...

Great spaces. Two monitors would be a dream come true, but then again I would like to just have space to put my lap top on my work station...LOL

Aww Bridget, thank you for your lovely comment! thanks for your good wishes for our move - I remember what short notice you had for yours, and I couldn't imagine at the time how you managed it! Your new room is amazing and looks well lived in now. I love the beautiful red logs - what sort of wood is that? Very photographic!!

I'm sorry not to be able to take part in the anniversary ATC swap this time - is it really a year since the last one? All my stuff is packed away and also I'm too busy with packing etc.

Glad you like the design for our new kitchen! I'll be doing before, during and after photos of all the work being done and it will go on my blog. I'm super excited. I just wish the solicitor for the other side would speed things along a bit and stop causing delays.

Shoshi said...

Thanks for your second comment, Bridget, and for your reply to my first. Great logs, fabulous colour!

Thanks for your lovely comment about my latest Zentangle effort. Funnily enough, this evening I decided to email the company and send them some photos of what I'd done! There was an email address on the side of the box. I wonder what they will think? (I complimented them on the design of their packaging, and also, of course, on the delicious food!)
