Another Wednesday, another opportunity for a worldwide mega-snoop at everybody’s work desk to see what we are all up to, and how tidy or otherwise we are! Click on the WOYWW link in my sidebar to go to Julia’s blog and find out how to join in the fun.
Not a lot has gone on on my desk this week. As it stands now, on the right at the front are a few more zentangles on ATC-sized cards ready for filing in my new album – I’ll do another post about this when I’ve drawn a few more.
Centre stage is the Reverend Ernest Bear. I made him for my hubby for our first Christmas, when we were engaged, in 1985. I was horrified to notice the other day that the felt on his paws has completely worn through, so he’s going to the Bear Hospital for some plastic surgery – you can see the material for the skin grafts on the right. He’s having beige paws with little red patches sewn on with a bit of embroidery, which will go nicely with his braces. I notice that his clothes are also quite grubby and due for a wash, so it’s Makeover Time for One Small Bear.
On the left is my Tattered Time album, with absolutely no progress having been made all week. I have got my final small circle punch, though – it arrived from Amazon yesterday morning, so I’ll be able to get on again soon.
Actually this is the reason for such a lack of progress on the art front this week:
I had another marathon clearing session and have almost completely cleared the second of the 3 sections of my huge shelving unit – the first section I cleared a while back, and it’s been demolished. Once section 2 is empty, it will also be taken apart, and these 2 sections I am giving to Wonderwoman, my home help, for storage in her chalet. I am afraid I was a bit stupid doing as much as I did in one session but I got a bit carried away, and it’s taken me most of the week to get over it! I’ve spent most of the time since on the recliner, and have only managed to do a few zentangles, and type up a letter or two to send to friends for Christmas. Duh. I don’t think I will ever learn… Still, I do feel very satisfied with the results of my labours, but now it’s even more of a sweat getting at things as they are all crammed tightly into section 3 of the unit! The floor of my ARTHaven is still quite a mess, and it’s got to be cleared before Wonderwoman arrives this afternoon…
Have a happy WOYWW, everyone, and a great week ahead, full of inspiration and creativity!
