What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday, #177

Notta lot.

The living room work table has been cleaned off and sent to the barn,
in preparation for painting (the walls) and new carpet, so I'm back in
the actual art room.

Things have kind of landed here and there . . .
The "cheese" box is a leftover from the Halloween and trinket box
projects, the paper pads and stamps from a piece for an article for
next month's Unruly Paper Arts, and the painty brayers are for
monoprinting.

Here's a little peek at the UPA project:
 but I can't show the rest for a few more weeks . . .

Will be coming around for a visit to all who stop by this week, and
last week's WOYWWers who left comments, too. 

What's on YOUR workdesk?

Tease! Sneaky peeks indeed! I have all sorts of debris including toilet paper/paper towel rolls, cheese containers, salt boxes, empty cereal boxes in my crafty space. My husband says it is becoming a local dump! Guess I need to recycle some of it and if I need something just go buy another box/bottle etc. and get this place cleaned up! Hope you have a great week.

Nice to see such a busy-looking desk! As much as I admire people who can keep everything really neat, mess makes more sense to me!! Have a lovely week, Chloe 85

Nan G said...

I spy some interesting looking stamps! Good thing I'm on email notification so I won't miss the full reveal! Eggs? Nan 27

Princess Judy Palmer said...

Oh my! I'm wondering if it is going to be the day of sneak previews again. The art room desk is looking quite full of stuff!

The first thing we spied was the cheese box, but that's because we are eternally hungry bears.

trisha too said...

Debi, you always come look, but you should join in the woywwing!

:)

trisha too said...

Well I'm sure you recognized all those stamps, karen!!!

Daniella said...

Can't wait to see the finished piece!!
Thanks for answering my question!! I've "heard" you say some things that made me wonder! Is there a fb page or anything? If so, I would like it!!
I am so excited to mono print! I was so excited to see your article. Another friend from the Netherlands was doing it, but she didn't give as precise directions. Thanks for the idea! I've mono printed in the past, but not in the "at home" style. This is one of my weekend plans this week!!!!
I've just been so busy working and making art for everyone in the universe but me lately! I have to start doing art I love!!
And, isn't altered pages the person/people who bought the Mailbox Muse? Were you as surprised as I was? I think it will make the kits even more awesome!! Part of my new "do stuff for me" thing I plan on visiting some of these sites I've been dying to visit, including that one!!
xxD

trisha too said...

Yep, there's a facebook page--it's very "guyish," and doesn't exactly have a big fb presence, but our boys post updates for the customers who get updates on their phones.

I have to admit, Jean gave a vague clue, and I totally guessed it . . . but she told me to keep it under my hat, so I did. She's awesome at putting things together in kits, so oh yes, I think the Mailbox Muse will continue to be fantastic!

(Monoprinting is SO much fun!)

Eliza said...

You have peeked my curiosity at what you are upto, so far that sneek peek is looking really good. YOu must show the finished piece soon, I can't wait too long ok.

Happy crafting this week.

lisa said...

You have some lovely things on your desk this week. Those stamps look gorgeous and I had to laugh at the cheese box!!
Thanks for your lovely comments, no WOYWW from me this week, life has taken over but I'll be back!! I agree, the Little House books are much much better than the TV show.
Happy WOYWW
Hugs Lisax

glad to see I'm not the only one with empty cheese boxes on their desk. Haven't got a plan for mine yet but will get there eventually.
Love the butterfly.

Sue said...

I just love your delicate butterfly

I was not around to do WOYWW this week, but I hope to next Wednesday.
Love the story about your cat. See you next week as I am off out and about!

Brenda Brown said...

A very sneaky peek Trisha. Your desk is always so vibrant.
Hugs Brenda xxx

scrappymo! said...

Thanks for the sneak peeks. I am so very impressed that you have a barn! You lucky girl.

MaggieC said...

I have to ask "what is monoprint"? Your desk is fascinating this week, with everything that has landed. Thank you for your visit this week and your sympathy. I had to get rid of the glue there and then otherwise it would have been there forever, annoying me. Have a good week. xx Maggie #33

Angie said...

Loving the butterfly! I think sometimes moving things around and just letting them land randomly helps with the creative process!

trisha too said...

Hi, Maggie! A monoprint or monotype is different from other types of printing in that you only make one of each print. I generally use mine for backgrounds.

Li'l Pidge said...

ooh some lovely creativity going on there.....looks like ping pong balls too on the desk! Loving the brayers for printing.
thanks for visiting my desk already

Hope I get to see the mystery project!

Spyder said...

ohooo a memory thingy came into my head when I saw the cheese box... me...five years old... (long time ago!)...
cover said box and make a face on the front and pipe cleaners sticking out of the sides for hair, so it's a hanging scary face...well... at five I thought it was the bees knees!! Thanks for my snoop! Have a great crafty week! HaPpY Late WOYwW!

RosC said...

Nice collection of stamps, and well-used brayers on your desk. Like Lyn, I recall La Vache Qui Rit from my early days too. Thanks for the look-see.

Julia Dunnit said...

Nice view, hope the decorating goes smoothly and fast, nothing like a refreshed living space. The things that landed include eggs? or are they polystyrene balls? I don't know, but I totally love that for a minute, your desk is piles!

Daniella said...

Hi Trisha, I just made a blog post about your monoprinting article and I showed the pages I made.
Thanks for the awesome article!
xxDaniella

trisha too said...

Thank you, Daniella!! I will have to stop by and see what you've created!!!
