Ha! Remember last week when I said I was going to be tidy by next Wednesday?  Didn't happen!!

Some of it is a little tidier but the time I planned to use tidying the desk was spent sitting on the floor in the kitchen helping mum to get rid of flour weevils.  Quite a scary thought that they were brought in to the house from flour bought at the supermarket.   Anyhow, no weevils on the desk...

A half started journal page.  Some wrapping paper torn up and gel mediumed down.  I'm thinking some gesso, circle mask, silver acrylic paint, teal ink.  We'll see how it goes.

Also a pile of pencils waiting to draw an owl. Just cos.

Thanks for stopping by, see you at your desk!


  1. Great start on your page and can't wait to see it when done. (#62 WOYWW)

  2. Is it me or are there weevils these days? Always a good excuse for a spring clean! I love the colours you are using on the page. x Jo

  3. It's good you have things there you know need finishing. Hope you don't get side tracked by any more weevils.

  4. Beautiful page in the making! Thanks for sharing!

  5. Sadly, some certain types of housework do take priority over crafting. Hope your are weevil free and back to being creative soon!

    Happy Woyww,

  6. Looks like a promising start :)

  7. Your desk looks tidy enough to me! Love the beginning of your page and your plans for it! Chris 79

  8. Yuk - weevils! My only experience of them was when I was 5, finding them in my Weetabix! I hasten to say that was 57 years ago!! Mind you, it put me off them (Weetabix, not weevils - I was never into them!!) until recently, when I've started eating them again. Mum eats one, once a week which, at that rate, the smallest box of 12 would last 3 months! Crumbs, how could I waffle on so long about cereal?! Anyway, your desk looks full of potential, and I look forward to seeing the finished page. Have a great week, Chris # 23 xx

  9. I love all the "in progress" just waiting for you to have a moment to pop back to your desk and start right in! At least you won't have to decide what to start working on. It's all waiting for you :) marissa #99

  10. I stopped by for Friday Smiles and decided to comment here, first. I have had those same weevils in my house, too. I cleaned and removed anything with flour in it. Now I put any and everything that contains flour in the fridge. I even put my pasta in the freezer. Those little buggers will never invade my home again. I hope you have gotten rid of yours.

    Of course, the desk looks far more inspiring. Do you have enough pencils (grin)? Happy WOYWW from #1.

  11. Eeek - yes ... I had those in Weetabix many years ago... little buggers !!! I hope you exterminated them all :-)
    Great selection of goodies on your desk... and I like the look of that fabbo sewing machine :-D
    Happy WOYWW
