WOYWW #173 - even more of a mess

Firstly a warm welcome to my new followers. Thank you for joining me on this creative journey that keeps wending itself through fogs and forests and then wonderful mojo filled landscapes that capture my total attention and imagination.
I hope you find some inspiration on your journey with me.



Well this was how I left my desk Monday night and I haven't had a chance to get back to it.

The canvas you saw last week is still peeking out at the end there. It is my workshop piece for this Saturday and just about completed, just got a bit more prepping to do for the class members. I'll show it properly later when I've done the class.

A Christmas tag in the foreground, well on it's way to completion. Got a couple of challenges I want to enter with this, so must find a bit of time today to finish it if I can.


Otherwise there's all the materials and tools I have been searching through or using.

So why the interest in my workspace? Well that's because I have caught up with "Whats on Your Workdesk Wednesday" hosted by Julia over at The Stamping Ground, and if you would like to see what creative workspaces look like all over the world, then pop off and take a peek for yourself. You'll have great fun.

Right I am off to visit some of your lovely people that take part, I try to comment on the numbers that end with the same as mine, my friends and those that visit me (letting me know what number so as I can find you).

I have a Governor's meeting later this afternoon. Since I have 'retired' I became a governor of one of our local primary schools so that I can put something back into the education system and our local community. Takes quite a bit of time though.

Take care and Happy WOYWW.

The tag looks like a Tim Holtz creation, coming along nicely it is. You have a very interesting retirement job

Morning Brenda. Loving the tag - that snowflake rosette is fab. I made big ones of these a couple of years ago in gorgeous Basic Grey papers and they look fab in my window. Imagine strings of little tiny ones. WOYWW Hugs to you from Helen 83

That tag is beautiful! Mum has been given a further term of office as Governor and is heavily involved in the paperwork about becoming an academy,

I can see that set of memory box alphas, there, Brenda. What are they like? I've been wondering whether to get one for my scrapping.
I can also see one of timmies new snowflake rosettes on your tag, another thing on my wish list. It's looking as though it's coming along nicely.
Hope your meeting goes well.
