What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday, 190--snow dancers

Sure, yes, it's Thursday, but fortunately, dear Ms. Dunnit is very gracious.
(In case you aren't familiar with WOYWW, check out this link.)

So here's my workdesk today:
It's my lap.  Had to go with the guys to our shop, but brought my
go-box of stuff.  See the feathers?  They were for these fine ladies--
images from Altered Pages
They're actually stick puppets, I dunno, it seemed right for the Snow Dancer
challenge at the Altered Pages blog.  And the "sticks," they're leftover
background pieces (collage on chipboard), you can see more of the shimmery
blueness of it if you scroll down a post.

Happy WOYWW, albeit a day late--there are 164 people this week! What do
you think?  Can I make it through the list? 

:)

How clever to use feathers for snow! Your ladies look lovely -- glad you found a way to have some fun on-the-go. (Thanks for visiting me!) ~ Laura #119

Cameron said...

Fun! I love that you have a "go box"! Great idea :)

RosC said...

The stick puppets are so clever, Trisha. In the first photo I was taken with the feathers, and your use of them is perfect.

Thanks for leaving a comment for me.

I am always amazed that people manage to make art on the go, but you have and your little dancers are lovely!! Annette ~18

Nicky said...

Love your dancing ladies and your art to go box - thanks for visiting me already have a great week - nicky

House of Bears said...

Ah a lap desk, what a fantastic idea, the bears may do this next week, just think, we can craft from bed then! Love your ladies. Thanks for visiting the bears this week,

MaggieC said...

If you can make it through the whole list, you are doing brilliantly. I have done it once in around two years and that was because for various reasons I was unable to craft properly that week. I usually visit anyone who visits me, and then certain regular friends, then anyone whose number ends in the same as mine. I love your box to go, and your stick puppets. Thank you for visiting me today, and I hope your weather is better than ours (thick snow with more forecast) xx Maggie #20

That bit of feather and shimmer is gorgeous!

Hi there I love your snow dancers. I am very late visiting people I'm afraid. Yesterday was one of those days. Thank you for popping to see me. I actually think I have been following you around the desks :-) Anne x #145

Daniella said...

LOVE the whole concept!! You REALLY think out of the box girl!!!
Your to go desk is perfect, and quite neat. I am sure, if I had to have a "to go" desk it would be messy too!!

Bubbles said...

You go through all the WOYWW entries??!! Wow... you should get a special award from Julia for dedication :)
I love your puppets too -so graceful, and a wonderful way to use the feathers.
Hope your Wednesday was a good one - and the rest of the week a brilliant one too.

Robin Spitzer said...

love your puppets...I am sick this week so my goal is to at least get to the ones that visit me. Usually, I try to get to 50 or so. Once or twice I have done all of them, but it took the whole week to do that. Oh then comes the question of tart at the end, middle or beginning? One thing for sure, the more I do, the more blessed I become!

Julia Dunnit said...

Oh so impressed that your 'to go' box is so small and portable. I know that's the idea, but mine ends up amounting to a wheeled tote!! I love the snow dancers, what a brilliant idea, I do not have that sort of foresight.
I don't quite get your comment about the two blog thing...I haven't had coffee yet, maybe I need to do that and figure it out properly!
If you get to Antalya, you'll love it. The beach side hotels are quite away out of the town of Antalya which as you see in the layout is an old and beautiful place..no beach in town, a wonderful harbour and pleasure boats and an 'old town' that is just a deligth...you'll love it.

Gibby Frogett said...

Belated WOYWW greetings..love your dancers, the feathers make them look very elegant. Thanks for stopping by yesterday - and yes, agree, thank good ness for gesso - may well need that to cover up my messed up cnavas if theres no way out..Happy Crafting...Gill x (#97)

BJ said...

Thanks for stopping by, your snow dancers are fun. BJ#27

Sarah Evans said...

Angela Secrest said...

It's so fluffy! Couldn't resist, I need a to go box, though I'd want to take far too many things..hmm, how do you ever pair down your passion to a box?
Thanks for the visit!

Lunch Lady Jan said...

Good luck if you intend to visit all 164 desks, you'll still be doing it next Wednesday at that rate!!
The feathers are very frou frou and frivolous, just right for the dancin girlies ;)
Hugs, LLJ 37 xx

Sandy Leigh said...

Trisha I love those ladies with the feathers! I definitely travel around with my lapdesk of crafty work sometimes too. And I'm with you--I am astounded we have 164 Woywwers! What a great blog party! I only wish I really could make it around to all of them--I've only done that one time. It took me all day! And thank you for your sweet comments about my new header! The blogger layout was fighting with me and wouldn't let me post a photo on my layout for a long time, and then finally it worked. Have a good weekend dearest! Sandy Leigh #112

Eliza said...

Love those dancers. Thanks for visiting this week. Better late than never! At least thats how is I see it. I am still going round the desks of the world. ;-)

Darnell J Knauss said...

You made it to me and I appreciate it, Trisha! It's a mahoosive list this week. We all keep hooking a few new peeps!

I also admire that you have a "go-box" (love that name) and that you actually create beautiful things away from your desk!! Enjoy the weekend! Darnell #131

Your dancers are amazing. Fun and very clever. Now we'll all be using feathers as snow.

Thank you for visiting; I really appreciate it.
Cheers, Rachel

BetteK said...

Late WOYWW'ing but what the heck ... at least you made it! Thanks for your very kind comments about The Cake! We still have some *S*N*O*W* left on the ground despite fairly heavy rain last night ... it can stay as long as it likes as far as I am concerned ... just love the stuff. Best wishes to you, love Debbie xXx

Shoshi said...

You are so clever with your alterations! I've just been on your other blog, and commented on that simply amazing perfume bottle... Love your dancing ladies with the feathers!

Thanks for your nice comment on my blog, and so glad you liked my spoke guard in progress. They are now completed, and as soon as I've finished editing the video there will be a blog post about the project.

Happy belated WOYWW,
Shoshi #147

Nicie Ibarra said...

Beautiful!!! What a great [and unique] idea about the stick puppets!!!!

SueH said...

That’s a neat little box for when you’re on the go Tricia. I have a similar bag with a little cross stitch project in that I pick up and take with me if I know I’m going to have a bit of wait if I go somewhere.

Loving your snow dancers and those fluffy white feathers.

Thanks for stopping by this week.

Happy Crafting!

The puff looks perfect for snow! Almost like they are kicking up a flurry of snow, in fact. Beautiful! And that is very clever to keep a box ready so you can craft on the go. Very clever! Thanks for visiting me already and leaving a comment. Deeyll #161(I almost didn't make it this week! lol)

Cardarian said...

I have so much stuff on my desk I will soon have to resort to my lap too! Love your stick puppets - I think I might try making some!
Hugs,

Queenie Jeannie said...

How fun!!! I love that you can craft on-the-go! I'm so spoiled and need all my stuff around me, lol!
