Just a short post to join in with the "What's on your workdesk wednesday" over on the Stamping ground blog. No 206 this time. I'm afraid I skipped No 205, while my mother was here. Which is a pity, because the exploded dining room table was a real sight for sore eyes =).

This time I managed to clear my table before making a picture.

It's a lovely spot to sit, work, stare out the window and listen to the birds whistle, while the garden comes back to life. From this spot I can overview the entire livingroom and the garden, nicely tucked into my little corner.

And yes, should you wonder, that is a pirates flag there in the border among the plants.

As you can see I did clean up a little. There are two projects on my table. Some tags I wanted to do for the Tim Holtz tags of may challenge and a sneak preview of a new journal page I'm working on. But since these are not ready yet I cannot show them to you in this post... maybe later today.

I did however destroy another background, as I told you I challenged myself to do in my previous post.
I wasn't feeling all too happy when I made this one... so it isn't really a pretty pretty page.

This is the original background, as you can see, I didn't really do a lot to it, but it did make me feel better and  after this I was able to move on to other things.

I am content to leave it as is though, because I do like the writing. The follow your heart writing was done with the refill bottle for the archival pitch black ink pad. I loved doing that! I completely wrecked the plasic tape on the page while trying to dry the ink. I don't mind though, I was in the mood for some wrecking. Blowing the tape to smithereens with my heat gun made me feel a lot better.

The rest of the writing was done with a permanent marker and a white gel pen.

I guess that's it from me, I wish you all a happy WOYWW and after I come back from the dokter's office I will try and stop by your workdesks.

  12. Thank you all for your lovely comments.
    About the pirates flag, I wish I had a great story to tell you about what it is doing there, but I don't. It's just one of those things you collect during the years when you have kids. My kids are now to big to want a pirates flag, but I guess I'm not, so I can't part with it =).

  13. Just love your view! Had a giggle over your flag and your post about it. Happy belated WOYWW and thanks for visiting!
