Morning WOYWWers!
Pop over here to Julia's to see loads more desks...

Yes, I know the panoramic photo doesn't line up properly but this was the fourth one and I kind of just thought it'll have to do!  I need a wide shot this week because I, and my mess, are very spread out!  I'm making up a mini album kit from Ronda.  Lots of fun so far, just being inky and creative, but following her instructions.  Creating without thinking!
The album is called 'i am' and there are ten pages so I thought I'd come up with a list of ten meaningful things that I am - easier said than done... give it a go..?  See?!  Tricky!!

You might be interested to see this painted paint brush now it is finished...

And I've also been painting this...
Hopefully a full post on this later today or tomorrow.
Thanks for popping by and sorry if I didn't return your visits last week.  I'm coming through a bit of depression at the moment and I haven't got the oomph I need to communicate properly.  I will try harder this week!  I promise!


  1. Great desk, looks like you used a fish eye lens. Love you tape holder . Francesca #99

  2. Hi Laura, curvaceous desk with loads to snoop amongst. Love the painted paint brush - too beautiful to use. Hope you emerge from the depression soon and get your oomph back :) Happy WOYWW, Elizabeth x #105

  3. Ok that photo makes me think I had too much to drink. I have to try to use the panaramic photo feature on my camera too. I get the idea. You have an amazing desk.

    I love the paint brush. I like when people personalize tools. Very cool.

    I am a very bad girl today, I didn't post a link to my site because I didn't have much to show so no worries if you visit my site. But it isn't stopping me from snooping.


  4. Bless you, take care of yourself. I think the panoramic desk view is a marvelous idea, perhaps we should all try one.

  5. Hi Laura - thanks for popping by and for offering to sing along!! Sorry to read you are feeling down - It is an awful thing. Keep busy doing things you love and I am sure it will help. The last picture looks very intriguing. I look forward to the reveal! WOYWW Hugs to you from Helen 15

  6. The picture is so charming, I love seeing all of the cool details, like washi tape on a stick! The paintbrush is beautiful but that painting is breathtaking, I feel pulled in. Things can be tough, I hope you feel better. I am glad I got to visit on this WOYWW. Frances #127

  7. great 'fish eye' look to your desk. good luck with the mini album. hope you are feeling more positive soon, there is a lot of people/crafters out there thinking of you

  8. Hi Laura, love the shape of your desk. I hope that you feel better really soon. Try to stay busy it helps me. #25

  9. Happy WOYWW. I agree coming up with "the 10 things your are" list is tricky. I also have to say your nails and that Shades of PInk card in your previous post is fabulous. I now wish I had longer nails to try that marbling technique. I hope you have a very blessed week. LisaDV #124

  10. How clever to do a shot like that...even if it took 4 attempts. I'd still be there if it was me ;D
    Have to agree the list of 10 things is a little tricky...I'll have to give it some more thought.
    Sorry to hear you're not feeling 100% and hopefully you will very soon. Art and creating will certainly help and I'm so happy that you're sharing your work with us. We're all here for you :D
    Thanks for popping over to my place earlier and my apologies for taking so long to reply.
    Have a wonderful weekend
    Happy WOYWW

  11. Great looking desk and I love the paint brushes color. Are you sending it to Donna Downey? I know she is collecting them to use as wall decorations. Thanks for sharing and have a great week. Vickie #68

    1. I don't think I'll send the paintbrush off... I think I like it too much! I might see if she still has any blanks to have a go 'properly'
      Thanks for stopping by!

  12. Love the painted brush! The other painting looks very interesting too and your desk looks very tidy to me.
    Happy belated WOYWW!

  13. Love the "fish-eye" shot of your desk, Laura. Very arty. Your work is outstanding - I've commented on both the paintbrush and your amazing poppy. What talent.

    Thanks for your lovely comment on my blog, and for your prayers and good wishes for our family. Dad is now in hospital, and although it's the best place for hm to be at the moment, it was very sad yesterday, seeing him looking so small and frail in his bed, attached to a drip, and with slurred speech. Although he's small in stature, to me he's always been a giant of a man, and it's so awful seeing him diminished in this way, and so out of it. Mum is vulnerable and needing lots of care at the moment too, and what we would have done without my wonderful hubby I have no idea. He's off visiting her again this a.m. and I'm languishing in bed answering my backlog of blog posts lol!!

    Happy belated WOYWW,

  14. The panoramic shot is great Laura, have I admired your tape collection before? I bet I have! love the paintbrush, what a fab idea, hope it makes you smile every time you look at it. sorry to read that you're suffering a bit, it's like wading through treacle some days isn't it. Don't go beating yourself up about visiting blogs or not, no-single WOYWWer would mind in the least.
