 Ah, it's the 'desk of shame' this week...  I seem to have adopted the shove-it-to-the-right method this week.  It's piled quite high and well, you can see.

And even the work in progress on the cutting matt has had stuff piled on top...

Bad Laura!  Why not pop over to Julia's for a huge linky of other deskers, most of whom will be much less naughty than me :)

See you at your desk!


  1. Oh girl, you got me laughing. I am using the shove it to the left, shove it to the right, turn it upside down and just shove method at the moment. And there I thought you were just being coy and hiding the current project before the big reveal!! Hugs

  2. What a fab workspace! And look at all those washi tapes - awesome! Happy WOYWW, Evelyn # 54

  3. I have been working on about 6 projects this week and my table looks a lot like that just now - I sweep stuff off so I can take a WOYWW pic that people might like to look at! lol x Jo

  4. Hello. I'm just doing a quick run round a few blogs before I dash out to solicitors...manic day here today fitting in all I need to :-)
    I love to see a busy desk in full flow...and yours doesn't disappoint :-)

  5. You have a really fab workspace! I really like the blue bucket/bin with the flower on the side :-)
    Hugs, LLJ 15 xx

    1. The best thing about the bucket is that it came stuffed full of crafting goodies!! :)

  6. Ah yes, the good old 'shove it to one side and carry on' method of crafting. A tried and true way by most of us, lol.Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #64 xx

  7. Laura, I hope that condition 'Shove it to the right' isn't catching:)

    Looking forward to seeing the project that's under the pink tray.

  8. A busy desk there - and as I frequently use the left shove method myself, I totally love it!!! But do tell - whatever do you use the Johnson baby powder for?
    Take care. God bless.

    1. Baby powder is great for making things un-sticky. I also use it on my hands so I don't leave fingerprints on vellum.

  9. You just have to use that method sometimes or you'ld never have any space to work LOL!
    Happy crafting and have a great week, Angela x #42

  10. Now that is an excellent method, shove it to the right, like Laura I hope it isn't contagious. LOL I like what I can see of that layout you are working on, do share.

    Happy WOYWW
    Hugs Eliza & Yoda 68

  11. Shove it to the right, push back, work on top...all valid techniques if you ask me! I thought the talc was to de static your tidy tray, but i see from the comments that it's for an even more clever use! You have a small number of photos there!!

DMIO: Teach Me Something

A few weeks back I made a dream catcher.  A few readers asked if I could show them how I made it, so, here is my attempt at a tutorial! First up weaving the web. 1. You'll need a hoop and some ribbon/thread/yarn on a bobbin. 2. Attach the ribbon securely to your hoop. 3. Take your ribbon over the top of the hoop... 4. and up through the loop you've just made with the ribbon... 5. so you have a cross over. 6. Continue steps 3-5 until you reach the knot. 7. Now instead of going over the hoop you will crossover the ribbon 8. and through the loop you've just made to give a crossover. Continue on in this fashion until you get to the middle. You need to leave a hole in the middle as this is where the good dreams get through!  They then run down the tassels/feathers/any other hanging decoration and on to the owner.  It should look something like this.  You'll need to play around with your tension until you get a firm web. Now for the tassels - I like to

A Poe Quote

So I've been trying out art journalling for a while but had nothing that I wanted to share, until now. I was inspired by The Bears Challenge and picked this quote to base my page on. "If you wish to forget anything on the spot, make a note that this thing is to be remembered" I got some paints out, some spray mists too.  I used my fan brush, my fingers and a cotton rag.  I got messy, satisfyingly messy :) The letters are some old letraset vinyls that were my Aunt's.  When we cleared my Grandparents house I couldn't stand the art goodies to go to waste.  I saved them because I knew one day I would find a use for them.  They must be 40 years old but are still perfect.  (I sometimes look at things I get today and think they won't still be good in 5 years let alone 40!) I don't have the complete alphabet so there are some adaptations... c's became o's, E's became t's, w's became m's.  I magicked a k from a P!  Some
