WOYWW - 11th May

For anyone new to this WOYWW stands for 'What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday' hosted by that wonderful woman Julia.  Wednesday is the day that intrepid bloggers round the globe show what's on their workdesks.
I've got a new cover for my desk ('cos it's soft wood I decided to have a cover) as I was fed up with the other one, this one is a lovely lilac :) As a result my desk is quite tidy this week.  I did take the pic last night just to save a bit of time this morning.  4 pairs of scissors out this week!    I'm working on something for the Sunday Stampers challenge hosted by another wonderful woman, namely Hels.  The messy thing covered in ink and paint is a piece of  plastic which I sometimes use for messy stuff.  At the moment there's a bird on top with a layer of 3D gloss on.  My MS punches now reside in the plastic tub on the right of the desk.  I'm also showing what I'm working on for WOYWWAC (if you're new and haven't read about this yet WOYWW will soon be celebrating it's first anniversary.  Check out Julia's post dated 27th April for more info  I think it's ok to tell you this is fabric paper, made by glueing tissue paper onto muslin,it's been coloured with paint and mica powders.  I'd knocked my tub of ribbons on the floor and as the lid is very loose they all fell out, but as they are just dumped into the tub it's super quick to tidy them up LOL  For those who want to see the AG box lid I madeover last week see the previous post :)

I'm not playing this week because I didn't make it around to everyone last week. It got too busy and I felt guilty about missing nearly forty people. Got to around 80 and never caught up.

Love your new desk cover. Very snazzy. So what is that remote control doing there? Are you going to alter it (GRIN)? I must ask you about the MS punches one of these days.

Bettythebaglady said...

What gorgeous colours Lou in that fabric/paper thingy and I checked out your box lid which I think is wonderful. If you hadn't said about the wonky I would've thought it was meant to be but then I saw the top ones were straight. I prefer the wonky as they seem to fit in better somehow.Hugs BettyXXX
