WOYWW - March 9


It's time again for one of my favorite weekly events. Yes, it's an event. You get to snoop into other peoples workdesks. You get to see how normal you really are. You get to get inspiration from other peoples projects. It's fun. You should try it. And post a picture of your workdesk for us to snoop around your place too. Go HERE to the lovely Julia's for more info and to post your workdesk this fine Wednesday.

This is what is on my workdesk this morning. I can't show the ATC's just yet. (I've already said too much. LOL) But, I can tell you that they are for the next OPUS GLUEI challenge. You can check back here, or on OPUS GLUEI Sunday afternoon, to see what they look like, and what the challenge is.

I haven't been at my workdesk much this week. All of these were gotten to this point on Sunday. My oldest and youngest daughters have started playing soccer, so our days are QUITE full with work full-time and carting the kids everywhere. We aren't getting home until after 7pm each night. (We leave the house at 7am.)

At the top, center of the picture is my newest set of toys. Paint pens. I have just discovered them. And wonder how it took me this long. I LOVE them. This last set was gotten with a 40% off coupon, making it even sweeter.

If asked what tools are my favorite, you can see them here. My ATG gun, my Honey Bee scissors and my paper piercer. I think I use these on EVERY single project. Love 'em.

Do you have any favorite tools?

Looks like you are being very busy and creative :) I too have lots of favourite tools which I use lots, the most used I think is probably my precision file set!
Have a great WOYWW,

Looks like you’ve had a ‘very’ busy week Jana!
The ATC’s look very interesting and I can’t wait to see them when they are unveiled.

You ask what my favourite tool is……
Well mine would have to be my ruler that measures from the centre out………..a must have for someone like me who can’t align anything with equal gaps at either side.

Happy Crafting!

I'm impressed that so much creating is still happening with your busy schedule!

Cynthia Eloise said...

your desk looks pretty organized for as many projects at once. i just bought some water soluble crayons i'm having fun with.

Charli said...

Oooh, what a tease you are by blanking out those ATCs lol!

What a lovely size desk you have to work on. And think I may need to look out for paint pens, can't say I've come across them before.

Oh and my fave tool.... my new Cuttlebug lol! Thanks for your comments on my WOYWW post by the way. (Will make sure my finished tag is hanging around on my desk this Weds)

Take care,
Charli x

I hope you are going to show us the finished ATC's. I am intrigued. thank you for popping over to view my blog too. I don't have paint pends, but I do have a 72 set of Derwent Watercolour pencils, and a 72 size of Derwent Inktense pencils, which are fabulous. I drool over the beautiful wooden boxes, even before opening them up to use them. I think they are my favourite tools at the moment, together with the Whispers blenders (cannot get on with the refillable water brushes at the moment) and the Krylon gold leaf pen which I use to highlight the edges of cards - gorgeous.

love your desk even in the grey mist - my thing I use all the time is my small fiskers scissors ~ sorry I'm running late this week on noseing round the desks lol - Nicky no.2

Hi Jana, fascinated by your desk last week, still trying to work out how you grey misted out the ATCs! My favourite items are my Cuttlebug, my guillotine and my scissors - these have gone missing this last week and I'm lost without them :( Thanks for dropping by my desk and leaving a kind comment.
