On my desk today...

A tripod and light, a deck of mixed media cards with a nature and found poetry theme, my beloved colour swatch moleskine.  I have swatched out all my colours in all mediums - best thing ever!

You can find details of the deck swap here if you are interested - 10 places left...

Thanks for stopping by, see you at your desk!

  1. They're looking good. What a lovely busy desk and I like the look of all that yummy washi tape. Barbxx

  2. Your desk is awesome and I agree re the colour swatches...I have done that for all mine too and I use them all the time to decide on colour. I used to have a tripod too for my camera but now have a cheap table light that you can remove the light and then add a camera attachment, so no legs in the way...hubby saw it on youtube lol. Thanks for popping to my blog :-) Dawn #19

  3. I'm late, I'm late for a very important date :-) I've been chasing my tail all day but have now managed to get to check out a few of my fav blogs :-)
    I'm wondering what you've been using the tripod to snap today and whether you will be sharing it as a smile on Friday :-)

  12. great looking busy! Have a great week and thanks for sharing. Vickie #61

  13. What a great desk!! Love your colour swatch book too; great idea. Helen #1

  14. That is a desk that invites you to sit down and start playing!

  15. What an interesting and busy desk! I love your colour swatch book - I've done the same but it's on scraps of paper in A4 wallets - I also name and number swatches of wool, yarn, ribbons etc etc - it's a really useful resource, but having seen yours I now feel the need to tidy mine up and get a proper notebook!! Oh dear, I'm also too lazy to get my tripod out and I end up using anything on hand to rest on - you are making me feel shameful!!! Hope you have a good week, and thanks so much for stopping by mine earlier,

  17. Your colour swatch sounds amazing. Thanks for visiting. Anne x #64

  18. A nice busy desk, Laura, and what pretty cards! I am very interested in your swatch moleskine and would love some more info on that. Thank you for your lovely comment, and I'm certainly enjoying all these meals out, although it is making my diet suffer! We've never been out so much on the trot and my hubby says it's nice to see me enjoying a social life again after last year when pretty well all my outings ended up at the hospital.

    Happy belated WOYWW,

  19. I like the idea of lots of swatches for different media, because watercolors are often different than acrylics. And heavy body acrylics are often different from fluid acrylics with the same name.

    Somehow I don't understand the excessive cost for playing in this swap. Whenever I hosted a swap, I asked for two extra postage stamps more than what their package cost to get it to me. I know I also asked those who lived in other countries to wait till I weighed the swap before paypalling me. And I always used first class, not priority rate. I'm sure this is going to be a fun swap for you, but there's no way I'm padding some host's pocket, because I've hosted too many swaps. Thanks for stopping by earlier this week, because I've finally had time to visit you again.

    1. For me it works out as £14, and costs me £10.30p or £14.55 to post. She won't be lining her pockets with my money, especially once you have taken in to account tape and padded envelope. I believe the price is $20 so everyone all around the world pays equally - it may seem high to USA participants but less so to the rest of the world. I've never had any complaints with this swap (I've played 3 times before) and the art I receive is amazing, definitely worth it in my view!

  20. I'm not at all late getting here, me. No. Absolutely on time. Today is still Wednesday if I say it is, right? Hehehe

    Love what's on your desk this week. I keep meaning to do colour swatches of all my inks and carry it around with me but somehow I fail/suck at this...

    Thanks for stopping by!

  21. Ooh, I am so pleased to have found your beautiful blog by way of WOYWW (even if I am running a little late this week!) Your desk looks wonderful - full of colour and creativity. Though I must admit that my mind is screaming 'stack those cards neatly'. < I wish I wasn't such a neat freak sometimes!
