What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 142

As my son or daughter would say.. this week's post for What's on Your Workdesk, now famous by way of the tv,(  allegedly mentioned by Dyan on QVC!!) probably is an epic fail! I am supposed to show you my desk , and all its glory or in my case, all its downfall, but I haven't used it, and the mess piling up on it is far too much for me to show you!! So in order for me to join in here is a picture of my desk at the Stitches trade show where I was lucky enough to join in a retailers workshop with the Duke of Distress, and his assistant the Queen of journaling... Tim Holtz and Dyan Reaveley. It was very busy and fun filled afternoon, and for the first time ever I had my photo taken with him!

Here is what we made.. lots of techniques and ooh the new distress pens :))



For those of you who kindly asked last week, here is the link on how to make my little porcelain rose.
Now I am off to check out some of the desks in this week's woyww hosted by the delectable Julia.
Have a very happy what's on your Workdesk Wednesday

Lucky you! I watched a bit of Craft day on QVC but gave in and ordered Sir Tim's book in the end. But I do ate the "sold out, move on" mentality.

Have a great one.

You lucky girl having a pic taken with Sir Timmie, it looks great I bet you had lots of laughs, have a great week, Hugs May x x x x

Ohhh Snap said...

How great is that picture! And you got to play with those lovely distress pens!! The rumor is true, I was watching QVC UK online and Dyan was asked if Tim was popular in the UK and she said half the desks on WOYWW have his picture somewhere. #15

Number one, get you!
I saw Dyan on QVC and she certainly broadcast WOYWW to the crafting world!

Lucky you being at stitches. I must say I'm not hugely into TH but I would like to learn more, maybe I need to come and see you one day.
Hope you enjoyed meeting up with Judi the other weeked? I met her in London at the end of January with Kirsty.

Joynana said...

You are one lucky lady. I would love to meet Mr Tim. I love everything Tim and just received my first 2 sets of the distress markers. So it doesn't matter where your desk is. You got to work with a genius.

Mynnette said...

Beautiful, beautiful!!! Those distress pens look like such fun! :) And what a picture to treasure!!!!

MaggieC said...

I am still working my way round the blogs this week, doing better than last week, I must say. You are so lucky meeting all those people and seeing all those lovely new things for us to play with. I do have to agree with scrappystickyinkymess about the "Oh it's sold out, move on" mentality. I know they are in the business of selling, but if we could see the demos to the natural end, we might be more willing to buy it when it appears next time. I hate the way they cut us off instantly. Have a good week. xx Maggie #11
