What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday....a great big pile...

Hello, and welcome to the wonderful world of What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday, hosted by the Chatty Mrs Dunnit. Now, I almost always take part, but sadly, I don't always participate in getting around to other desks, mainly due to the fact that I don't ever seem to have enough time. But I am always grateful to those who do visit. Thank you! This week, my sad neglected desk is full!! there is a box of charms, yet to be unpacked and restocked, some gorgeous new Fabric Sheets from Jolees boutique along with charms and other artifacts just thrown carelessly on the desk, and my pan pastels which I acquired more than a year ago, which haven't even been used! :(( I am determined to use them this side of Christmas!! The Quality Street tin is full of beads, obviously all the chocolates got eaten :(( and given to me by a friend, who didn't want or need them anymore...people seem to give me stuff...I cannot for the life of me think why!!!?


I will be round to yours, but may not make it to all...
Have a great woyww day!
Hugs

You've just reminded me of when I was little and thought that Preparation H was for piles of paper and magazines and stuff! Feel free to send those pan pastels to me. I'll create something for you! And thank you for putting it so well, how we love to play but can't always visit as much as we'd like.

Have a great day,
cheers, rachel #19

Hazel said...

Los of interest there, Jennie - and, yes, you need to use those pastels! Thanks for the opportunity of having a peep at your workspace - trying to make a few visits early this week! Hazel, WOYWW #87 x

Neet said...

How can you have OPP's unused when they are the latest craze? Get using them and then selling them.
Great busy (?) desk you have - and a tin full of goodies.
Thanks for sharing - Hugs, Neet #21 xx

Pan Pastels. Love the IDEA of them and the intense colour, but because they need fixative (will hairspray do?) I keep putting them in baskets and removing them again. One day I might actually pull the trigger and buy a few :)

I think I need a class to MAKE me try them LOL!

Happy WOYWW

Love your very creative (messy) desk this week! Great idea to keep beads in the tin, you must have 1000s of them. I love my few PP's but not great at using them yet.......Happy WOYWW, Anne x #43

Bella said...

Great desk, I too am a receiver of other peeps unwanted stash...a very grateful one I might add. It takes me a while sometimes to use it, but it always gets used!

Lurking under the bit of patriotism still hanging in there is a wealth of lovely stash and interesting stuff. Get cracking on those Pan Pastels as I'm waiting for a report to tell me if I really cannot live without them!!!

Happy WOYWW. Fantastic busy desk. I bought my first Pan Pastels today. Gave in after seeing them demonstrated on tv and in magazines, and thinking I need to have the latest 'thing'! Looking forward to trying them out. Ali x #61

Hi Jenny,
I seem to have 'run into' pan pastels about four times in the last week. Have never seen them before but the colours seem clear and beautiful. Will look forward to seeing your work this side of Christmas.
Funny how one collects stuff!
Cheers,
Ros #51
