Welcome lovelies, to another Wednesday and another sharing of creative workspaces at Julia's Stamping Ground.
Now Julia, are you sitting down, because my work top is once again cleared and sterile looking, but that is because I have some special visitors staying with me, and I decided it was simply not nice
to expect them to wade through this mess to get thorugh their bedroom, not a very welcoming site for our visitors as they got to the top of the stairs.
I felt that if I was vacuuming the floor, it made sense to clear the worktop too.
And of course my visitors are with us until Thursday and then we are away until Monday, so will not have time to do any creating until then.
So Monday I can start with a nice blank canvas and get on with the Birthday cards I have to make before Christmas.

So my worktop looks like this today. Nothing very exciting to see, a new die this end, came in the post yesterday, and at the far end the basket containing the Christmas cards I have made so far. A pile of toppers and other bits on the window sill and in the middle my homemade gelli plate I made and have so far never used.
But just to prove I have done something since last week, these are  a few of the cards I have made

over the past week, only need another 25 or so.
Well now I must return to my visitors who are waiting for breakfast and then we  are all going out for the day on the boat.

Thank you for visiting my desk, I will get round to visiting a few desks  tomorrow evening but mostly not until Monday when we get home, so I will look forward to that.
Bless you all

Some lovely Christmas cards there! Maybe I will start some soon :)
Have fun on your boat? (Canal boat?) We have a boat too, but nothing like a canal boat.)

You are looking very clean and tidy there, like you say, visitors might think it strange to live amongst out creative goings on, even though we love being amongst it. Enjoy your time together.
That looks like a lovely tonic die there.

I always find clear worktops very inviting! I know it's time for a clear up when I can't see any more desk space! Lovely Xmas cards! Happy WOYWW from zsuzsa @ InkyDinkyDoodle #33 said...

Great Christmas cards! Love your space and it's always wonderful when we can see the tops of the counters!

Oh I love it when my workspace is all neat and tidy like that... it makes me want to sit and play... of course, that is not wise if you have visitors so enjoy the visit while you have them! Annette #31

Angela Radford said...

Sometimes it's a good idea to have visitors it always forces me to tidy up.
So many christmas cards, you have been busy! Have a great week and happy crafting, Angela x 39

Hi Mrs.D, I just popped over from WOYWW to see what you were up to. I love the unused gelli plate... I have one also that has yet to be used. I am going to use it... one of these days. Ahh, so many toys and only two hands! LOL! I am loving your cards! I haven't made a single card for days... eeek! Anyway, this is my very first WYOWW post so I hope you get the chance to pop over for a visit. My blog is I am writing it here only because I am not sure since I linked up to Google + whether or not my comments lead one back to my blog.
I look forward to more visits... off now for a few more WYOWW visits!
Hugs from a new sister in art,

Lol at your bitty floor! My craft room gets covered in threads which are a complete pain to Hoover up off the carpet.
Hope you have a good day out with your visitors!

WOW clean desk indeed - now can you come and do mine? :D You're doing well with the card making. Enjoy your visitors and your trip away. Anita #55

Lisca Meijer said...

I always say to my visitors, 'Please come more often as I keep the house clean and tidy that way'. I had to smile at your floor. Yes, mine looks like that too, if not worse! Anyway it's nice to clear the deck every now and then, isn't it.
Thanks for letting me look over your shoulder,
Have a good week,
Sorry I'm late but I take my time going through them all. (I enjoy reading all the blogs and look at the photos)
