WOYWW

...Whaaat? I hear you ask. What on earth is WOYWW? It's 'What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday', an idea originated by Stamping Ground. I've seen a couple of my other blogging friends do posts on their own blogs about this, so I thought that this week I would give it a try! If you would like to take a look at their work desks, click here for Jana's desk, and here for Gabriele's desk. So, this one below, is my work desk.


My work desk is generally very messy, so today I tidied up (as like my housework, I generally only tidy up when I'm having guests over, so the same applies to my work desk)! Many of my regular readers know that I am very much into book binding at the moment, so I have my current projects out for you today. A book I am in the process of binding, some floral mandala covers that I've designed and this morning, I bought a beautiful piece of Japanese Washi paper that I will using for one of my Japanese Stab bound books. I shall, of course, post pictures of all these books when they are finished.

Well, I hope you've enjoyed taking a peek at my work bench today and I hope to join in with more WOYWW in the future! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today! And click HERE if you would like to find out more about WOYWW and participate too.

    1. Thanks Helen! My housework often gets neglected... I too don't have many guests, which is either a good thing (so I don't have to clear up), or it's a bad thing... ;)

  7. Welcome to WOYWW! But tsk---- you tidied your desk up for us???? Hehehehehehe. The whole idea is to be caught with your trousers down, so to speak. We're all very good at showing off the wonderful work we create but we needed to share the creative process and just what mucky puppies we all really are....

    Love the Japanese Washi papers!

    Thanks for stopping by....

  12. I'm working on the theory that people will have to accept me faults and all...when I say faults, I mean a very untidy desk when they visit! Love the papers especially the Washi...such fab, rich colours. Haappy WOYWW. Pam#14
