What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday? The Second Anniversary Edition

So what's on YOUR work desk or table today? Hopefully you remembered the second anniversary of WOYWW or #104 for those who have been playing along with Julia at Stamping Ground since the beginning.

I created WOYW Wendy for the first anniversary and she's still around, although she's been quiet for quite awhile lately. Of course, I had to bring out a rocking horse for your enjoyment and approval. On the table is my monthly or 365 day journal, completed for May. Hiding underneath it is my PIF, ready to go to the next person on the list.

I have now moved my PIF to the sewing machine, where it is right at home.


Now I'm not sure if we're supposed to show our PIFs until they are received, so here is mine after I ran it through several Photoshop filters. If we are allowed to show our PIFs, I will show mine tomorrow and show a few photos I took along the way. Guess I won't be showing my PIF until my recipient receives it.

Thanks for stopping by today. I am still unable (after about a week) to leave a comment on any blog that doesn't have a pop-up window because there is no comment box for me to write in. It is frustrating, because I've tried many things, and have now left a message for Blogger to see if they can help.

Nicky said...

Wow its me that will receive your pif - very excitied as never playing in one before, I have sent my address.

I to had problems with blogger and found that when it asks me to sign on if I untick the keep me signed in box, it now lets me leave comments on everyones blog, blogger has been very frustrating these past few weeks,

Have a great week

NatashaMay said...

Lovely to see a rocking horse again, I have missed them! I am sure your PIF will be gorgeous. The big reveal when we all get them should be fun.... have a great day.

JoZart said...

Hello Elizabeth... Happy WOYWW 2nd Birthday. Love the arty conversion of your PiF... it's worth framing and I'm sure your original is too! Have a great day and thanks for popping in on me,
Love JoZarty x

Ciara said...

Cool pif photo ;-) I wasn't sure about showing mine either, so figured it was best not to just in case!

Your 365 page looks great, especially with the addition of a rocking horse ;-) I went to one of Kate Crane's workshops for the first time at the weekend and she was brilliant, such a talented lady. When I see these journal pages around blogland I feel very lucky to have met the lady behind the challenge.

Anyway, I'd like to wish you a happy 2nd WOYWW anniversary and thank you for always leaving such positive and encouraging comments. You gave me a great welcome when I first started last September, which I really appreciated. You're a very lovely lady, xxx

Nicky said...

Emailed again hopefully it's worked now - I live technology at the moment lol

angelfish said...

I kept mine a secret, but not in such a creative way as you:)
Blogger was very troublesome for me last week unless I could choose name/url! Fingers crossed it behaves itself this week.

Spyder said...

no. see I'm not here, I did type a comment about an hour ago and then whizzzzzed off to take my PIF pictures off, I didn't realise you weren't meant to show it yet...so my post is a bit, actually completely wrong now, and I'm late for work! anyway...your fizzy picture is brilliant!!

Hands to Work, Hearts to God said...

I'm sorry you couldn't post a comment on my blog, Elizabeth! Peggy and I agree you post quite interesting comments!! Happy WOYWW! I'm glad you're back, missed you for a while. That is a rocking horse full of character. I think it's one of my favorites from your collection. Patsy from

Thanks for stopping by. I sneaked my PiF into the bottom corner of my photo but it gives nothing away! Blogger has been very odd lately and because I am a computer ignoramus I am totally confused. HOH stands for Houses of History. It is a swap I am in on a yahoo group. There are 11 participants and each month we all do a page with a theme chosen by the recipient and then send it to them. My month will be July and my theme is "Art Deco" to be interpreted any way they think appropriate. The laser cut pages have been especially designed and made for us by an Australian company called Scrapmatts. HAPPY WOYWW!

you temptress!!!
Wishing you a very happy 104th week!

Electra said...

Hi stranger! It's been a long time since I'e come to visit! Hey, I discovered I can leave comments when I uncheck the bog on my login page that says "stay signed in".
Give that a try. Having said that, Happy PIF Day!

SueH said...

I’m making a special effort to get around everyone as it’s a special week this week.

Your altered PIT photo is a work of art all on its own Elizabeth and I’ve no idea what it might really look like. Love this week rocking horse too, where on earth do you store them all?

Happy WOYWW 2nd Anniversary and …………….
Happy Crafting!

Doone said...

No great surprise to you my Love -
as Amy would Say 'Donna Fucked Up',

my pif is on show,

never mind...

I never did get time to read my instructions, I am not sure how I have survived...

I missed seeing you this week - will try to catchup next, or call it quits and accept that I lost a week of blog time...

And here I thought you had posted a really cool piece of marbelized paper! LoL (at myself).

I feel your computer frustration. My computer has slowed to dial-up speed (it needs a boost of memory expansion to salvage it) and my kids computer won't let me stay signed in to Google. So here I am signing myself-

Happy Tea Day REALLY late!

Jingle said...

Well, that is one interesting looking PIF! LOL!

Artyjen said...

Happy WOYWW! I have a sneaking desire to try to unravel your photoshopped image...I also have a sneaking desire for that gorgeous horse of yours ;)

Sam said...

Now I know who Julia was referring to who collects rocking horses.
I too was having problems with not being able to leave comments on blogs until I read a comment by Frankie - when you are asked to log into Blogger, untick the remember me box! I feel soooo liberated now!! LOL!!

Happy WOYWW!

Julia Dunnit said...

Show it, don't show it..it's all fine and rather exciting huh - for sure your recipient will be a happy person, I know.The pop up comment box is not a user option - blogger installed it, so I guess those of us who started at blogs at whatever stage that was, are stuck with it, - it's very frustrating. I don't think I realised before that your journal is large - I like that very much...room per day. As my writing changes by mood that would be consideration for me!

Lizzybobs said...

Happy 2nd WOYWW Birthday have a lovely day ((HUGS)) ;o) Liz oooooo wonder what it is !!!!!!

Amy said...

Hi Elizabeth,

i just thought i'd let you know i stopped by. i'm not terribly commenty today :)
Xx,
amy

Charlene said...

I can't comment either if there's no window or name/url link...that's how I had to do this one. It's frustrating and time consuming to be sure.

You've sure created alot of suspense! Fun, fun!

jude said...

Happy Woyww birthday have good one!

Been trying to comment for days, but Mr. Blogger is being rude, he won't let me - I am thinking he's jealous he can't be part of PiF, Idiot! All he has to do is show us his desk and we will gladly recieve a PiF of hassle free commenting, won't we?
Happy WOYWW Anniversary
