It's WOYWW time again everybody.. Get ready... and open your door to let visitors in from all over the world to see what you've been up to....creatively that is and what's happening on your workdesk!
If you're new to the term WOYWW (What's on your Workdesk Wednesday) or just here for the first time then you'll wonder what on earth I'm referring to...but this is the brainchild of Julia's blog at Stamping Ground.
So if you want to see lots of creative artists and crafters work just nip over to take a look at desks from all over the globe. There's so much talent and inspiration waiting plus they're a friendly bunch and would love to see you.
So what's on my desk this week....Well I'm in the process of moving back into the studio...I know...YAY!
At last I can have the dining room table back. The weather has been so springlike this week with beautiful blue skies and warmer temperatures that I thought I'd take a risk and move back.
The trouble is that everything has just landed on the desk as you can see and I've yet to sort!
I'm also trying to be more organised this week because basically over the last few weeks I think I'd lost the plot...so with that idea in mind I'm always impressed when anyone can assimilate two challenges into one post and would like to show you another silk painting from my previous life...this one will fit perfectly into the Artists Play Room theme for this week. Jenn at Just Add Water Silly sets a challenge each week and this week's theme is 'Juicy'.
Immediately I thought of lucious juicy fruit but then at the bewitching hour of 4.30am I remembered that I had a silk painting of cocktails. Darrrrdaaahhhhh!
I smile to myself when remembering this painting because we happened to live in a dry country at the time...but as most expats living there we had our own fully stocked bar and this painting was displayed on the wall behind it.
Before I go I must tell you that I've had a close encounter with a fellow WOYWWer!
It's incredible to think that WOYWW has introduced us to each other from the other side of the world.
We had such a lovely time and she even brought me a gift.
I'm now the proud owner of an adopted daughter of Gloria. Gloria by the way is a sourdough starter that Ros has been caring for for about a year now...eek...no pressure on me then?
I've yet to name my girl...any suggestions?
Both Ros and I realised just as we were saying goodbye that we should have taken photographic evidence of the event but we'd been too busy chatting...well I probably nattered far more than Ros truth be told!
I just can't help myself...but we do plan to meet again so we'll hopefully organise photos then.
My apologies for such a long post today...I know Julia likes to keep our posts short to help with the desk hopping...so I'll shoot off now to start visiting all the peeps out there and see what they've been up to.
If you like peeking into peoples lives then this is the place for you....
Have a wonderful week with lots of creating ~ enjoy!
