What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday....137

Now I could be a great big liar, and tell you that my desk is overflowing with works in progress, and that I cannot show you anything...or I could say that I am having the winter blues, or that I have been too busy doing the dreaded paperwork this week, and post a picture of my desk from last week. In fact, my desk hasn't been used at all since last week, as all the above are true in some form or another! VAT, tax forms, wip, orders and workshop prep means that I really haven't got an inkpad out since last week... feeling very uninked! LOL. I have, however, got a desk or two to show you from my workshop on Saturday at Pickleberry, which is closely followed this Saturday by one at Jendenink near Fareham (there a couple of spaces left if you fancy a day of getting inky). So this is my play space this week,
with the wonderful girls who spent time creating something similar to this,

and then there was this and THIS is a work in progress! A Tattered Floral die Rose that has the faux porcelain technique applied to it on top of a tag I managed to throw together on Saturday while teaching a technique!

If you think that I have waffled long enough about desks, then head yourselves over to Mrs Dunnit's to see lots and lots more desks, and apologies to all who popped in last week, I never got a moment to pop by yours. Hope to do better this week!
Have a very happy woyww day!

Wonderful tags! Yep, maybe that's what I have, the winter blues...maybe that is why I can't seem to finish anything today! I need to clear my head!!!

Helen said...

Great tags, Jennie! Still haven't tried the porcelain effect, but one day, one day!

sandra de said...

Ohhhh the tags are gorgeous and the "porcelain effect" on the rose may need some explanation as it looks so delicate. Such a pity you don't do classes in OZ.

Lots of lovely goings on and tag treasures on your surrogate desk. I always say that I'll willingly clear desks if I can bring a large suitcase to fill with all that's on them! Especially all your lovely stash!

It can be a bummer when we realize a week has gone by and we haven't had time to play at our desks. It happens though! (Please, don't say taxes, I don't want to think about it! LOL!) -dianneo #123
