mish mash--What's on Your Workdesk? Wednesday 278

So last week I was out of town for a conference--one of the evenings we had off, and took a river boat cruise.  This is Cincinnati, Ohio--after the baseball game, there were fireworks, and we were there at the right time to see them:

I wasn't around much this last week to make anything.  Here is a link to my last finished thing, a CAT BOOK--I tried to paint the chipboard kitties to look like cats we've had or have.  This one looks like one of our current feline friends, Daisy: 

Here is my desk, just how I left it last week:
The blue plastic thing is a junction box for a light fixture, the tiny book next to it is the Flower Fairy Alphabetica I'm still filling, with the little collage pics that are in the black bowl.  The blue book is one I'm altering, it's going to be Alice themed.

Happy WOYWW to you, and thank you to Julia!  (Sorry if I sound stupid this week, I've got a cold.  At least you won't be able to catch it when I come by for a visit, right?)

Well it's sad we can't visit in person...but yes, we won't catch your cold either! I hope it goes away soon. I can't believe you guys went to the same booth at SDC! After I realized how much I like the square loom, I saw some videos for all the things you can make with the triangle loom--so I hope I can get back to SDC this month and get one! Can't wait to see how your altered book turns out. Thanks for visiting! Sandy Leigh #56

I left you some vitamin C there on your desk......grin Hope you get to feeling better real quick!

After making out my Oct. calendar I was surprised to see how much we are going to be gone here and there. And I thought we were going to start slowing down....LOL

Thanks for the earlier visit

Yes, that's right, Trisha, we can come and visit you, even if you have a cold. That's the awesome thing about WOYWW. Here look I'm even going to touch your fun things on your desk so I can get a closer look at them and I'm not the least worried about catching your germs!! Great fireworks, BTW! Thank you for sharing considering you don't feel well and thank you for coming to visit me! Happy WOYWW and feel better soon! Hugs, Darnell

What a fantastic fireworks photo they can be difficult to capture sometimes but you seem to have pulled it off like a master. Alice book sounds wonderful I started one that was round years ago and then gave up, it's in the ufo bin.

I'm late in commenting (it takes me all week to look at everybody's desk) so I hope you are feeling much better by now.
Your altered book sounds interesting and it certainly looks beautiful on the outside.
Thank you for letting me look over your shoulder.
Have a good week,
