stuff AND a sneak peek--I really like this project! What's on Your Workdesk? Wednesday, #228

Hello, fellow WOYWWers!  I have returned from a couple of little journies--
one to Washington DC with the daughter, and a shorter weekend getaway with the
dear husband.

Here is what's on my workdesk:

Bits and pieces, a little bit of mess, working on several things . . . but here is a
sneak peek of a piece that is probably one of my favorite makes this year:
You can probably tell what it is--this will be in the very next issue of
Altered Arts Magazine, and I'm a little impatient to see how it looks
"in print!"  Okay, yes, you're right, a little more than a little impatient!! ;)

Will be around to visit you all soon--it's been a while since I've had a good
WOYWW snoop;  I've missed you all!

Good job you got your trip to the capitol in before all the shutdowns and problems Trisha. Love the desk, your blue box looks like a giant piece of lego! Look like maybe a journal or a small book of some kind, well done on being published.

Hugs

Sandy Leigh said...

Trisha, I hope you had fun in Branson! I would much rather have been in Branson than sitting with my mom in the hospital (me and her both) but she is getting better! So you are published? Wow! I am so excited for you. It looks like a very cute journal too, can't wait to see. Thank you for your sweet visit. Happy WOYWW! Sandy Leigh #9

Princess Judy Palmer said...

Whatever your sneak peek is, it looks interesting. I guess we'll all have to wait patiently..... *sigh* Lots of great things to play with on your desk this week. I wonder if they are part of what we can't see or if they are for something new. Back to that waiting patiently thing...... *sigh*

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

I'm glad you're back from your trip because I've also been gone. That sneak peek looks like a handmade journal you've turned into a purse of sorts. I like the looks, though, and hope to see it in Altered Arts. I know you make a lot of stuff for them, so look forward to your latest creation.

BTW, the card I sent to Spyder was sent out earlier. The ones on my desk are for my American friends and will be mailed today. Happy WOYWW from #7 and thanks for the earlier visit.

Caro said...

That looks like one amazing sneak peek and congratulations on getting it published. Cant wait until we are allowed to see it in full. Thanks for sharing. Happy WOYWW. Caro x (#12)

Lots of lovely goodies to play with on your desk. Love the sneak peek...could it be a journal?? Hugs. Pam#68

Sharon Madson said...

I don't know what it is, but look forward to finding out. Also, I am wondering what you are doing with the burlap on your desk. I almost bought some today.
Thanks for the peek and for the earlier visit!

Hi Trish
Thanks for visiting me, yes it is time to think about Christmas, trouble is I have lots of ideas, but not necessarily all the makings so I get so far and stop.
Your desk looks so well organised with all the stamp pads or whatever arranged tidily at the back. For someone who's going to be 'in print' you need to look professional.
Happy WOYWW

Oh rats, Neet--I seriously thought I had my number in there!!! Sorry about that, it IS difficult to wade through to find people. I usually try to make my name a link, too, to make it even easier, but sometimes that doesn't happen.
