What's on your workdesk this 215th Wednesday? (the one where she is actually making something)

This table is a real mess, but Jan of LLJ fame said it looked like (and I quote) "wrinkles on a woman's face...it shows all the history and experiences!! Much better than a neat, clean, Botoxed product...if you know what I mean!!"  I guess I can live with that analogy, since Botox is not something I would ever consider.

Let's get to the table.  I'm working on my Summer of Color book I've created for the final week we meet.  I have just finished putting the finishing touches on the book, which includes various paint chip samples and stickers.  I used my Crop-a-dile to punch the holes the mismatched ribbon went through.


I know!  Less talk, more showing the rocking horse of the week.  Here's a wooden cutie.  I love wood and have lots of wooden horses.

Have a super WOYWW and I'll be by to see you sometime during the week.  I'm going shopping tomorrow (Wednesday in my world), then to lunch with my friend Sally.

LOL! I love your botox desk analogy. I try to clean my desk between projects, but when I'm working it looks like a bomb exploded over it too. By the way, that's a really cute rocking horse. Blessings!

Kimberly Hogan said...

Thank you for the lovely comments. I look forward to seeing what kind of rocking horse you are going to have on your desk. I think your desk looks well loved. I bet you can look at different spots and remember the projects that created them. I'd never do botox either. I hope you have a wonderful week. (((HUGS)))

If your desk is wrinkles on a woman's face, my desk must be a 102 year old hag (he he).
Love your rocking horse.
Have a great week.

Julie Ann Lee said...

Ah yes, I remember thinking Jan's comment was a great one, especially as I work on a sheet encrusted with layers of what can only be described as painty guck! This week's rocking horse is the cutest, a lovely wooden creation! Have a good time with your friend! Julie Ann x #45

I love the wrinkles in your table's face =). It has a story to tell. Your book is looking interesting and I love the little rocking horse.

Elizabeth said...

Hi Elizabeth, and Bleubeard of course, that's a really cute rocking horse on show this week. The wrinkles on your tables face are lovely and Botox wouldn't be my choice either. I don't have a Crop-a-dile, they look like an instrument of torture to me, but despite that I'm sure it's a very useful tool and one I should invest in - one day. Hope you have an enjoyable day. Elizabeth x #47

We love the desk analogy, love the rocking horse too. I wonder if we have a bear small enough to ride it?

Great quote....still laughing...you DO NOT ever strike me as the botox type. Can't imagine it myself. Love the idea of the messy wrinkles of experience........Rock away. xox

artatag said...

I can´t wait to see your Summer of Color book! Meanwhile I admire the cutie of a rocking horse. It is adorable.
Thank you for your visit and leaving a kind comment

see you there! said...

You desk just looks like a busy artist uses it. I'm suspicious of a too clean work space. Really like this particular rocking horse, he looks so sturdy.

Craftymoose Crafts said...

My desk is empty today since I am going shopping today, too. You know the kind...thrift stores, paint chip aisles, etc! Have fun with Sally!

sandysewin said...

Thank you for stopping by my blog and for the kind comments.

Yay for cropodiles and letter stickers. Boo for Botox. :-) Your rocking horse is adorable.

Happy creating and happy woyww,

Sandy #28

Darnell J Knauss said...

It's so true about the wrinkles! I love that saying now, of course, since I'm riddled with them!! Super adorable rocking horse, Elizabeth!!

Thanks for coming by to visit me already! Happy WOYWW and have a wonderful week! Darnell #20

Laura said...

Busy, messy desks are definitely a WOYWW badge of honor and usually a sign that things are actually taking place in the space. Your little rocking horse is adorable. Happy week! ~ Laura #101

Deb said...

Your desk certainly shows its history but I think it is very attractive! Love your rocking horse, there is something about that lovely chunky mane and tail! Think it may be my wool addiction!

That horse is particularly gorgeous, and I love those letters! Thanks for sharing. Happy WOYWW. Caro x (#78)

fairy thoughts said...

Hi Elizabeth
love the analogy of the wrinkled face mine is like that messy .... not wrinkled.
I have trouble getting through to your blog I am being redirected to an adult verifying site bcause you have adult content! they want to charge me £1 to check I am over 18...... not sure what is happening there
have a good week

Lunch Lady Jan said...

Lol...I didn't realise that you'd throw my 'words of wisdom' back into the melting pot!!! :-) glad it made people laugh though!
What have you been doing with that cropadile? It looks quite vicious -) I can't be bothered to do anything much at the moment..it's too hot for me! I must have been a Viking in a previous life or something!!
Hugs, LLJ 46 xx

Charlotte Musha said...

That rocking horse is adorable! Happy WW xx

Daniella said...

I love that analogy too!! And I'd love to see your color book. I started making a color art journal. I gave it a fancy name too! "an expedition into color". I did 4 or 5 colors. Never finished :( But, I have paint chips and stuff left, just waiting for me to finish!!
I have a big wood rocking horse in my foyer!!

Thanks for the visit. Love your little guy on your desk today. Your book sounds great and well done on finishing it! #58

Julia Dunnit said...

I'm late - started at the back of the list this time! Love the horse, he's all roundy and chubby!
great idea to make the SOC book, I thought, just for a split second that you'd taken up the scrapbook thing from the sight of the stickers! should have known it was scrapbooking a la style Altered Book!

scrappystickyinkymess said...

Another adorable horse. And gosh, I'm sure I recognize those stickers - I think I have them too, so will look forward to seeing the finished item :)

Happy (late) WOYWW!

scrappymo! said...

I love the wrinkles analogy...I am not the botox type either...Love that wrinkled and paint messy table cover...It speaks of weeks or months of creativity! Will watch for the post that shows your finished project!

Shoshi said...

Thank you for your lovely comment, Elizabeth - I keep having to pinch myself to make sure I'm not dreaming about my beautiful new ARTHAven!! As for being too late for WOYWW, I don't consider anything before 11.59 p.m on Tuesday too late - and even then, all comments, regardless of date, are always greatly appreciated and enjoyed!
