What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 450

Straight into it today dear deskers; no amount of explanation will make it tidy! I took the photo on Tuesday late afternoon, as I was meant to be tidying up but I was shocked into inaction by the snowing weather. Argh. You see the Dreamcatcher on the desk, there's a stamped image and a die from Sheena's latest collection. It's nice. They may look like Wink of Stella, but the pens are actually called Moon Sparkles by Dawn Bibby. The labels peel off and the pen is printed with the Wink of Stella brand name. Make of that what you will! I've been trying to come up with some male style cards. I may not have succeeded, but I must say that I've had a fun couple of hours at my desk trying! Nothing particularly new to report on..I'm going back to the desk now to see what exactly is sticking out from under the cutter at far right. Something with a pair of boots on it....no idea what! Share your space please..we (I) need to see!

the dreamcatcher looks fab! I am hoping the snow doesn't reach here (although it might be better than the rain they are just telling me we are due today...) and that it doesn't cause you too much disruption to your tidying...

Morning Julia. It's high winds here - no snow at the moment though. Possibly 'cos we are so near the sea... Hope you discover what is underneath the cutter:-)
Take care. God bless

I like Sheena's dream catcher. I've been playing with making my own washi tape this week. I know what you mean about men's cards; it's my number 1 request for cards. Have a good week. Sarah #?

wow, nice looking stash on your desk Julia.. mine is rather tip like.. was tidy while visitors here but shambles has returned! Smiled at you wondering what was under your cutter, funny the things we see in photo we dont see in a desk.
I'm off for my late-ish walk then back for tea and commenting hopefully some folks will be up!

Shaz Brooks said...

Hi Julia, can you please remove 6 &7? something wrong with my tablet this morning and I didn't notice in time Sorry. Hugs xxx

Annie said...

We had a sprinkling of snow over night but thankfully not the 15” we had last time.....yet. It appears there’s more on its way but I’m keeping everything crossed.....I’m not really a snow lover.
Having read the other comments it seems like it’s a snow report this morning 😀😀😀😀
Have a great week my friend and stay warm.
Hugs,
Annie x

BJ said...

Well I took the time and them my connection went and I lost it!!!
Synopsis:-
Dawn Bibby's activity is a bit questionable!
Male cards difficult and I struggle with the numerous male scrappages I need to do.
Boots - who knows

Neet said...

Ooh, that's a bit naughty isn't it? Pens I mean.
Love your dreamcatcher which would do for either male or female. Love dreamcatchers. My friend here in America had a huge one bought from an American Indian somewhere Grand Canyon way I think.
Hugs, Neet 12 xx

Angela Radford said...

Hi Julia, Dawn's not the only one that does that but if they work out cheaper who cares and I'm sure the company probably supply the label to go over their own. Men's cards always seem a difficult one and since finding those old tax discs every man I know has had something with those on. I noticed lots of our group are suffering snow, I am not saying too much but we are stuck in a hotel room with gusting winds and there are snow ploughs everywhere so you can work that one out for yourselves though the desk might be a giveaway today. Sending big happy woyww hugs, Angela x14x

Anne said...

Morning Julia. A sprinkling of snow here, hope that's it! Men's cards - a headache always though am planning on them for my next class. I'm not a fan of Dawn Bibby but the pens ? look good. Take care Anne x

FLR said...

Heather Marshall said...

Good morning Julia. Our snow is not really worthy of a mention ... just a slight sprinkling! I do like the dream catcher, and I am always on the look out for inspiration for male cards. Have a lovely week, Heather #17

Zsuzsa Karoly-Smith said...

That is a beautiful dreamcatcher die, Julia! Mine is a lot smaller - been playing with it too. I can see some snow there - it's sunny here but very windy! xx zsuzsa #19

Diana Taylor said...

The dreamcatcher stamp looks fab - particularly gorgeous on a black background and nice to have the matching die.
Keep warm and crafty,
Hugs, Diana x #20

Christine said...

Don't you just love our little 12ins square work mats?? lol I have promised myself that I will clear my cutting mat of detritus but heigh ho ....
Love that Dreamcatcher stamp, lovely colouring.
Take care, stay warm and have a good week

Marit said...

Goodmorning Julia, Hello from stormy Holland (no snow) and a big 'New Year's hug' (although the year is 17 days old already...) I'm back after all those weeks of being MIA and it's comforting to see your desk is still here and it still looks like a "Julia desk"! Hope you have a great day! Marit #22

AliWade said...

Happy WOYWW. Just had a search for Dawn Bibby's pens - and her website was down. It came up as £34.99 for a set of 12 on the Google search, but when I did a search for actual Wink of Stella pens, I found a set of 12 for £19.99. So - she was making a great deal of profit on her sets! Double naughty. Ali x #22

Twiglet said...

Just enough space for a bit of crafty activity there! Cold, wet and windy here today. x Jo

Lynn Holland said...

Happy new year Julia. There's not been a lot to report in the Holland household due to a troublesome few months, so I'm moving slowly and gently into 2018.
Roll on spring
Lynn xx

Shaz Brooks said...

Hi Julia, back again and actually awake now, lol. Love the dreamcatcher, and the card with the trainers on. Awesome. I'd heard that about the 'Dawn Bibby' pens from somewhere else, can't remember where though. Hope your snow has cleared, we didn't get any although they were forecasting the possibility for last night. Love & Hugs, Shaz XxX

Make a snowman, laugh and get wet. Be a kid again. Weather is totally crazy all over the world. USA south was hit hard and they are places who are NOT prepared for driving, or removal a real mess. Happy WOYWW, just had issues posting my URL from my kindle, the main computer is total blackness after the attack of the blue screen. So it is learn 10 and grow up.
My sweet mom loves Dream Catchers..yours is beautiful colors I'll have to try to make one for Mother's Day I have feather dies. And I like the BIG shoe card. Trying to stay strong today, little cat is now a lap cat I guess, but we have each other.

Lindart said...

I love to see a messy busy desk! Yours is great! The dream-catcher is beautiful - would be great for a masculine card!Lots going on here! Hope you have a wonderful week! Lindart #30

Stacy Sheldon said...

I laughed and laughed over a pair of boots under the cutter, I am reading a murder mystery at the moment and I thought well as long as its not attached to a body. snicker.
blame it on the cold meds haha. oh, your desk is such a fun pile of busy today Julia, thanks for sharing. ~Stacy #31

Dorlene Durham said...

I love the dreamcatcher! And I know what you mean about male/masculine cards. They are always so hard. Have a great week! Dorlene #33

Sue from Oregon said...

Hello Julia! April stopped by my blog today and led me back to you! I sure have missed the crew over here at WOYWW! It has been over 3 years since I have shared-oh my! I hope to find time to pop in and visit some of the girls from 'the old days' LOL!

Elizabeth said...

Hello Julia, the dream catcher is beautiful. I brought one back from America but that was more than twenty years ago and I have no idea where it's gone to now. I've spotted three rather nice cards scattered around your desk. I've heard that about Dawn Bibby's pens before - a rose by any other name ... Have a great week. Hugs, Elizabeth x #36

Monica said...

I am just defrosting and so posted at 3.25 pm.Perhaps it speaks for my state of mind but I have hip hop playing. It is about time I switched to some jazz before my mind turns into a glacier. If you are using the sneaker for a male birthday card you will have to use another color 'Pink" and men rarely go together.
Well need to do something positive before I freeze up. Hubby is having hot flashes, my cat keeps going out as soon as it is below freezing . Have a good week. hope it drys up and warms up in UK.
Hug monica

Love the Dreamcatcher! Interesting about the Sparkle pens. Your desk is definitely in the throes of busyness! Or maybe beyond.. Have a great week and hope the snow doesn't cause any difficulties!

Kim said...

Love the busy desk, and the dreamcatcher! I just got some Sheena glitter pens, but haven't opened the boxes yet. We had 7 inches of snow today, so now that we've had dinner, we have to go out to plow out. I'll have to check the labels tomorrow! Have a great week.

Claire said...

It's been a while... AND I'm a day late... But hello again!!

Annie Claxton said...

ooooooh yes that weather was a bit fierce, thought our roof was going to blow off at one point (hehehehe I can hear my boys years ago "blow off teehee")
Anyway, back to the point :o) sorry to be so late to the party, but catching up now. Have a lovely weekend and y=hope you get to play with that gorgeous stamp some more. Also, I need to know what the thing with th boots is as well ... Annie C #17

Very busy desk Julia.
We seem to have been very lucky and missed the snow. Just a few flakes but mostly rain.

craftyani said...

Looks a busy desk. Think most of us have trouble with man cards - well possibly men in general. Sorry for the late visit don't know where this week went. See you tomorrow at WOYWW451. Anickoana#3
