a BIG mess. What's on Your Workdesk? Wednesday, 243

My art room is FREEZING, so I bring things into the living room to work.
Tonight we had a family dinner, so I moved everything back to the art room:

You can see the stamps and the book of sheet music I used for my first official
post for Something Tattered, it's a collage (if you have a minute in your WOYWW
visiting, I would be grateful if you'd take a look at it HERE).

The box in front is full of beads, and the fabric is all yummy silks--I can only give
you  a little look at that piece-in-progress:

That's it for me right now--I'm off to visit some desks!

(PS--here is a peek at an atc that is bound for Peggy's--Peggy, I'm so sorry
it's taken me so long!)
For where your heart is, there your heart will be also.
 Happy WOYWW to you, and thank you Julia for the party.  :)

I love a messy desk. Are you like me - you work yourself into a teeny tiny space of actually clean space to work? LOL April #22

Peg Robinson said...

I understand about having all that stuff out on your desk. I just keep pushing back to find workspace. Peg R #13

OK, I guess we are on an equal footing this week, as far as messy desks go :) I do see some interesting things on yours though :)
Have a good week.

What's going on here? Do we all turn the heat off/close the registers in our studios? Well now, you got my attention with 'beads'! And I see a birds nest on fabric?! Oh can't wait to see the whole piece. Happy WOYWW! Nan G #23

Ohhh that peek of your project looks gorgeous. I think crafters all spread out no mater how much space we set aside for craft. I am so grateful for my little room, create a mess and close the door.

My craft room gets really cold too. I have a lot of windows. I can't wait to see your completed projects. #3

Donna Wheat said...

what a busy desk, no room to craft though, thanks for sharing Donna #41

Just had a peek at your collage, beautiful. Stamping on fabric is obviously something I should try more often, so much yo do, so little time. I'm a 'push it to the left, push it to the right' kind of crafter, I can craft in a 6x6 inch space - and usually do just that.

Happy WOYWW

I believe to create a masterpiece one must create a mess....that's my story anyway...You have some interesting things happening, can't wait to see how it turns out.. Have a great week and happy crafting DeDe #47

My work room is freezing too and it isn't conducive to drifting in to craft... I have to think ahead and put heating on in there. Even my table is stainless steel so really cold to touch. I love your mess and all that's in there and it reassures me that most of us are like that. I always feel un-nerved to see a clear tidy space.
Have fun

Hammers said...

I am jealous of busy desks this week, as mine is tidy with the stench of inactivity!! Thanks for swinging by my blog earlier. I liked your wording under the Heartfelt picture..very true. Cx #27

Sandy Leigh said...

Oh my, that's a beautiful mess. I took a peek over at Tattered, and your work is gorgeous!! I love the colors--so soothing. Thanks for the visit today. Happy WOYWW! Sandy Leigh #20

Lindart said...

Lovely collage! And a lovely messy desk! My room is cold too, but not freezing, I have a friend who won't work in her room in the winter because it is so cold. I used to have a stamp room in the basement, and I would use gloves with the fingers cut off to do my work!

Hmmmm... that bird's nest looks like the beginning of an intriguing project. :-)

Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier and for the nice comments.

Happy Woyww,

Krisha said...

When it gets good and cold here (which hasn't happened this winter) I keep a small space heater under my desk.
Now I did take a good and proper look at all the bits and bobs and containers on your desk. Now if I could just pull out some of those drawers and take a peek at what's in them too. LOL
Have a great week!

Princess Judy Palmer said...

You have a delightfully messy desk. I don't think we need t condemn it yet though. Interesting works in process!

Cathy L. Calamas said...

Hi! I'm WOYWW'ing for the first time today(#103).Having fun popping around. Love to see that ATC you made. Looks like yummy fabric. And yes we finally got our southern snow. :))

Hope your weather moderates. Winter can be a bugger. Your desk is definitely full! Happy WOYWW!

Deb said...

loving your sneak peeks Trisha, your stamping on fabric is fabulous!
I apologize for not giving a peek but if you have time pop back on Friday and you will see the whole thing!
Have a great week, Debxx #17

Lots going on in your space there - and considering you have to keep moving everything, you are doing just great. Well done.
Have a lovely, creative week.

Sarah Trumpp said...

Nice work, all of it!!! I'm hopping on WOYWW for the first time, and I love the color combinations you use - especially in that final ATC peek!! Awesome stuff!

xo!

Gotta love a messy desk. It lets us know we're busy and creative. And messy. :D But your works are wonderful, even the little peeks, and the collage on the other blog is precious.

Lunch Lady Jan said...

I really liked your mixed media collage...it was colourful but not in your face. Well done, I think you should definitely do more!!
Hugs, LLJ 51 xx

Sharon Madson said...

A great wonderful mess! Don't you love it? :) thanks for stopping by earlier. I appreciate it. #26

Vicki said...

My desk looks the same...I am anxious to see what your sneak peek leads to!

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

It's far too cold in my craft room, too. What little time I spent there taking photos was enough for me. I can understand the state of your desk. Mine would look like that if I didn't put everything away after I use it, lately in my office, since it's warmer there.

Bleubeard and I thank you for the previous visit. Happy WOYWW from #1.

okienurse said...

awesome busy looking desk and that titillating tease of a look at your project. Can't wait to see how it turns out cause it looks so awesome right now! Have a great week. Vickie aka Okienurse #111

Neet said...

Oh heck, all that moving of my desk contents would drive me crazy. Good to see you get on with it and dont seem to mind.

Hugs & Thanks for visiting me earlier, sorry I am so late - Neet 50

Just came back to brag on the gelli plate I made. It has been 6 weeks without mold. If I were to make a bigger one...cookie sheet I would just double the recipe. I would also use an all aluminum cookie sheet and just leave it in the tray. My two cents but for less then $10 you can have a huge gelli plate! Vickie

You will be glad to hear that the police helicopter has gone somewhere else for the moment. I live quite close to a prison, to the Crown Court, and to the hub of the motorway network, so we do see a lot of the helicopter. It is just at night when it becomes annoying, but comforting too in a way. Thank you for your visit, and my desk is now back in something of a mess. I did not have time to tidy up after playing yesterday because the dogs wanted OUT NOW, so before I start my next project, I must put away the things I was using and clean the brayer and Splodge mat. Have a good week. xx Maggie #2

Yep, huge shame about Archivers, they had really good products. It warmed up here at the weekend finally but all that meant for us was another six inches of snow! Think I prefer the cold weather, at least it's dry, lol! My own room is cold during the week and I don't care to heat it just for an hour of crafting after work, so I seem to be knitting more than anything at the moment. Happy late woyww!

Hugs
