Whats on Your Workdesk Wednesday 129

I am glad to see that I am not the only one who is beginning to feel like there is a black hole sucking our weeks away out there somewhere.  Reading a few of the other WOYWW posts over at Julia's desk last week, there were quite a few bleats about missing weeks and "how did we get to WEDNESDAY again" kind of comments...

Here is my desk, close up and an over view.


The close up is about sticking the packaging of the Tim Holtz tag die onto the die itself.  I am a teacher and use these dies during class, so it is much easier for my students to see the image on the die and not to have to make the shape out on the rubber side.  Yes, before you ask, that is a HUGE roll of double sided tape!  It is the most useful stuff I have ever purchased!  I have a post further down my blog here with photos as to how I do the whole process so I wont repeat it again.  The pile of white card stock is pre-counted and cut pieces waiting to be made into tags for the class I am running on 17 December of Tim's 12 tags of Christmas...96 tags to go...


Then there is the overview of my desk and I hope those of you who were here last week will notice that a few of the bags of stuff under my desk have gone, namely the white one full of stash that I got from a friend.  I have integrated it into my system and now it will all be used.  A few of the piles on top have also gone as these have been filed and sorted into their appropriate boxes.

Happy WOYWW to you and now I am off to see what you have to show!

  4. Wow Bella, your space is a chockablock full of goodies! I tried answerng your question to me but you are a "no-reply blogger". No I din't use a letraset. I made the words on the computer, made an inverted copy and used gel medium to transfer it. s the words she gave me was quite long, I thought that would be the easiest and fastest way of doing it.

  7. Nowt hat's what I call a crafting space. Wonder how many years it would take for you to use everything you have there. I guess it would take me around 40 years just to use the paper I have stashed away.

  14. That's the largest double sided tape I've ever seen! I can't help but comment on how fun it would be to just sit at your desk and get all crafty! I know I've said it before but there is just something about playing at your desk that would put me in crafty la la land! I'm not wierd, I promise! Thanks for the peek Bella and have a wonderful week!

  18. Hi Bella, funny you mentioned those bags that were under your table, I did notice they were gone. He he
    I don't know where the days and weeks are going. As you know my next show is Saturday and just taking a break, I have been painting gourds all day and still more to go. I will survive.....LOL
    Take care and can't wait to see those 12 tags, you will show us pics I hope.

  21. I think I can see that you have two light sources, otherwise your growing shelving would be plunging you into shadow! I love that you've 'integrated' new stuff into your system - wow, you really know what you're doing! The die packaging on the die backs is a great idea.

  22. Now a few of the bags have gone I can see a few of the boxes! LOL! Love your spave - looks so creative and inviting and that's a great die idea for the kids as it is a bit hard to suss out at times if you're a die newbie.
    Thanks for sharing a little of your life and desk! Sarah at 14

  23. I love your work space, Bella - looks very organised and full of goodies too! What a good idea with the dies, I've often thought it was a bit strange how difficult it is to see what they are! They should sell them like that. Happy WOYWW, Shoshi #70
