WOYWW 207: The one where there's nothing to show

It's the last week before the gigantic Fourth WOYWW Anniversary (see link for details) at Julia's Stamping Ground

and I have nothing to show on my craft room desk, except WOYWWendy and a damaged craft mat.

There's nothing on my sewing machine or guillotine cutter, either.

Conversely, nothing on my basement studio desk (except greedy photo-hog Miss Wendy of course).

No matter where I looked, she was posing, bangs hanging in her eyes (like I wear mine), hoping to be included in the shot.

When I decided to take a photo of my roll-around craft table that sports my new ironing board I've turned into a fabric stamping station, she jumped at the chance to be in the shot.

So where, you ask, is the rocking horse this week?  Well, if you've been a WOYWW participant as long as I have, you've seen these before.  But it never hurts to show them again, especially since I count six between the two craft spaces.

If you visit from Julia's, please leave your number.  Last week I was unable to visit two people who didn't leave a number and I couldn't find their names on the list.  I apologize and am hoping for a better track record this week.

I'm sure this means that next week you have something very special in store for us all!

voodoo vixen said...

I think everywhere looks very neat and tidy seeing as how you have had such bad weather!! Miss Wendy looks like she enjoyed the photo session too!

peggy apl said...

hi Elizabeth! it's always nice to be encouraged to tidy up when i visit work areas like yours! yes, Patsy was with me in Singapore. We were a group of 19, including my parents, my in-laws, all the children in the family (although the youngest is already 16 years old).

Neet said...

Now that is what I call a big room and also Tidy! Lovely to see all your space and what is that Wendy doing? She must have had 'ants in her pants' when you were busy doing the photography bit.
Didn't find the rocking horses despite looking.
Hugs to you and Bleubeard - Neet 2 xx

Miss Wendy just is an exhibitionist and loves to photo bomb lol! I loved seeing her in the photos, and what a tidy room you have at the moment! Yes I have seen several rocking horses as my eye roamed around the room hehe. Happy WOYWW.

Judy McCarthy said...

Some weeks are a bit like that.When you're in the mood again your space will be lovely and tidy and welcoming.
Love that little photo- hogging character.

okienurse said...

Wow awesome straighten up in the craft and art rooms. Can't wait to see what happens when you get busy and get to messing the space up again. Today the news is better about the storm damage and death toll. I am glad that the toll is less but it feels sad to be saying that! Have a great week. Vickie #26

Roudi said...

What a photo bomber Ms Windy is! lol
Love how tidy everything is. Wish I could be that tidy. *sigh*

Thanks for the peek! Happy WOYWW. xx

Well, there's always someone who hogs the limelight, isn't there...it must be tricky to live with such a diva! I'm amazed that the paparazzi aren't stalking your house with Miss Wendy in residence.... ;-)
Nice to see all your craft room...and weren't you lucky to pick up those sewing machine parts too??
Hugs, LLJ 40 xxxx

Helen said...

Get Miss Wendy.. where will she be next I wonder... Have a good week, Helen, 5

Redanne said...

Miss Wendy certainly is an attention seeker! Maybe if your desk spaces were a little more untidy she would not be so visible......only spied one rocking horse. Happy WOYWW, Anne x #53

Spyder said...

Nothing to show? I would say beats my picture any day! Your crafty space is looking well organised and if I was closer I'd love to come and play! Thank you for my snoop!
Have a HaPpY WoYwW!

Wendy sure gets around doesn't she. Thanks for visiting me today and entering the spoon draw BJ#51

Julie Ann Lee said...

I forgot to put my number on the first six people's desks I visited and went back like an idiot to leave it! One day I'll get bloggy things right! Wendy may be attention seeking but she is very cute!x #58

Ria Gall said...

wow you are one very neat and tidy lady just look at that crafting space just begging to be used.
Sending hugs on this WOYWW have a great day
Ria #24

Karen said...

OK so is the microwave for craft or making hot drinks whilst crafting? All the empty areas, just waiting for them to be used again. Shopping is called for with the craft mat, well who needs to be told to craft shop?!?!?! Happy WOYWW! Karen 85 x

Diane said...

I am sure you are in the planning stages of something special....

Minxy said...

Damaged craft mat.. did you forget it was there and use a cutting knife.. thats my usual trick which is why I set up my cutting mat right next to it to stop it happening in the future.. so far so good!
Minxy #22

Diana Taylor said...

Ooh, what fabulous work spaces you have - and I love your ironing board fabric stamping station on wheels - such a great idea!
With all that space to fill up with different projects I hope you have a happy and creative week!
Diana #59

Julia Dunnit said...

OOh Elizabeth, I could walk in and get going straight away - hope you have that feeling too! My DD and her friends call Wendy's behaviour 'lens tarting'..I say if you're photogenic, what's the prob?!!

KatzElbows said...

I think you need to do a Where's Wendy book. Maybe then she'll get enough attention to satisfy her! I hope have been on a tidying frenzy rather than having lost your mojo.

Happy WOYWW,
Rachel, #65

scrappystickyinkymess said...

Very neat and tidy! Wendy reminds me of Flat Stanley (did say that before?) more than Wally/Waldo. Maybe she can travel... on a rocking horse, peeking from behind a mask, buried in a pile o'paper...

Like a treasure hunt every week, to see where she might be.

:)

Happy WOYWW!

Hi Elizabeth, you have such a great space. and it is so neat and tidy this week. Love the doll who can't stay out of the shots. Very cute. Next week is the big one. If you would like to swap, please let me know.

Halle said...

I envy the nice clean spaces. We're having company this weekend so I have a big job ahead of me. :)

sandra de said...

You have such an amazing craft room, I love how you have a space for every imaginable craft need. Looking forward to the 4th anniversary as it is always fun to chat with like minded people.

RosC said...

Lovely to see your work room and spaces - empty or not, they are all bursting with creativity. That Miss Wendy, she's a little show pony, my word!!!

Thanks for leaving a comment - glad you're not seriously damaged by these twisters in your part of the world. Keep well and content.

Patsy Paterno said...

Hi Elizabeth! You have soooo much space and lots of clear floor. I usually trip over the mounds on my floor :^((( Not safety conscious, that's me. You're right about the bottle of course. I'll have to find something plastic to bring around but by that time, summer will be over and I have no place to bring it to!!! You've visited me so I do not need to put a number, thank goodness! I always forget my number!

butlersabroad said...

Gosh, all your work areas are all clean and tidy this week Elizabeth, what's going on? Stay safe in all this bad weather rumbling around.

Monica said...

I see someone else tried cutting on their mat. So easy to be carried away and forget mat is not for cutting.
Hugs Monica 103

Marilyn Rock said...

Your work room space is amazing!

I'm glad you and Bluebeard are safe. This weather has been violent and my heart goes out to everyone in Oklahoma. We had tornado warnings last night and violent storms - really frightening and I cannot imagine going through what people did in OK. Prayers continue. xxoo

Krisha said...

Wonderful space you have, and so much of it, and so nice and clean. Not sure which part I am more envious of!

Sandy Leigh said...

Love your craft room! Is that a doll in your sewing machine? Recently, I found some old chipboard file dividers, look ancient! But instead of throwing them out, I'm upcycling them into some art journals, and I've got some great inspiration from some of your posts, so thank you! Happy WOYWW! Sandy Leigh #106

Regina Hamilton said...

Miss Wendy is quiet the photo bomber..LOL. Everything is just so neat and clean. Thanks for stopping by. Happy crafting #3

Twiglet said...

Well you won't lose Wendy easily will you - such a tidy room and then of course she does like to hog the limelight a bit!! x Jo

Corrine at sparkledaysstudio.com said...

I can see Wendy rules the roost down there, no wonder Bleubeard doesn't hover there!! xox

Caro said...

I am impressed with how neat your desk is and I love the way that Wendy has managed to sneak into every photo! I have some cute octopi sneaking into mine... Thanks for sharing. Happy WOYWW. Caro x (#75)

voodoo vixen said...

LOL.. well, you have to have one... I haven't had many takers and I don't want them hanging around reminding me that nobody wants my 'art'!! ;)

~Rasz~ said...

Hi Elizabeth and Bleubeard and Wendy! I sure hope you were spared any damage from the aweful weather out there and hopefully tornado season has ended early. What a great work area and so neat and tidy too! Did Wendy help you clean up? Today is my first day of WOYWW and I am trying to get to as many blogs as I can. Your blog is great and I look forward to being a follower and visiting on Wednesday. Have a wonderful week and can you teach me how to be so clean in my work area? Robin #139

see you there! said...

Miss Wendy gets around, LOL! Looks like you are clear to start another oroject.

Bobby said...

Oh my, you actually get around to everyone? I'm a newbie at this and have been doing some random visiting. I thought today I'd try starting from the beginning but it's slow going to get through 160+ Bobby #162 (not 157- that one takes you to a previous week's post)

Alexa said...

Such a great workspace and SO tidy!! Love Bluebeard (what a cool name) - he's a lot like one of my boys - so adorable. Wendy is one diva that's for sure - you'll need to keep an eye on her or she may launch her own WOYWW slot!

Claire said...

uuummm... are you keeping things hidden for next week???
sorry it's taken so long to reply - the days have just evaporated!
happy belated WOYWW x
