What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 281 & Thank You Enablers!

Happy WOYWW everyone! I recently  watched a hilarious You tube of a crafter who blamed all the You tube tutorials for her craft spending. She used to be happy with one kind of adhesive, some paper and photos.  But now, she says she has purchased all different kinds of adhesives: glue, red line, ATV, dots, dementionals, etc!  She now has all kinds of pearls, embellies, etc, and an abundance of paper!        
Well as I watched that I realized that before I started looking at all your desks, I thought I had everything!  LOL  I have been participating in WOYWW since September 2013.  Since I started you have enabled (to just name two) me to want  a Gelli Print Plate, and Zentangle pen and paper,  I even went to classes for both of those mentioned!  So many other things too!  I just want to thank you, really thank you for introducing me to new crafts.  I really enjoy it all!
     Also, what I enjoy is when you make helpful comments!  As you can see, I still have my unique marker holder, (was a spice rack I bought at a garage sale for $2.00 about a year ago.)  I asked you what I should do with it, and several said use it to hold my markers!  I liked that and the look of it too!  But, alas, the markers kept falling out the back and under the cabinets, where it was difficult for me to find them.  After that several suggested putting a back on it.  This is the deal, they would then fall out the front because it isn't deep enough.  Now, I am thinking as I collect my SU! blendabilities, I will leave them in the boxes, and maybe they won't fall out as easily.  Maybe?  For now, anyway. :)
     Then last week, I ask about putting a thank you for your comments into the comment box.  Thank you Krafty Karen, and Rasz for helping me with that.  I think I was successful, even if it is so small and low.  Don't know if anyone will notice it.  I will tweak it sometime.
     All of this to say thank you to all of you deskers for your comments, and for all your enabling!

And now for why we are here!  To show our desks! And if you want to see more desks check out Stamping Ground, where our hostess Julia has everything all layed out for us.  I made that card in a Blendability workshop, and have been practicing on some oother flowers.  Also, some quilling I have been playing with, and a reject card, mabe I will use it for something.  Then some buys at 60% off from Michaels!  Yes, I guess Michaels was the enabler this time! :)

Have a great Wednesday!


  1. Sounds like you gotten lots of help from fellow desk hoppers. Thanks for sharing. :-)

  2. Happy WOYWW. Quilling is one craft I have not tried. Looks lovely, so perhaps one day? I also laughed when watching those videos on YouTube. I used to spend a lot of money on crafting, but after a few years I have worked out what I enjoy the most (mostly digital crafting and now my new love, sewing). I have sold a lot of stash and still more to go. My credit card bill is also getting smaller! Ali x #78

  3. Deer Sharon, My mom see'd that video before too! She waff and waff. She sed werkdesk Wednesday is no gud for your budgit! As wong as I git my gourmay cat foods I don't care what she buys! We have new threads on da desk today but they iz yellows so no gud until spring prolly. I wik your pretty flowers and your fancy circles. I wik Michaels too. They sell gud stuff. I tell my mom go bisit Michael and bring me stuff. Love, Dio #79

  4. Sharon, thanks for the visit - glad I am not alone on the pile. I love the videos by Linda, she is a total hoot and RIGHT!! Does your marker storage have to be on it's side? Put a 'bottom' on it and then you can stand the pens up. Cx #65

  5. I purchased those same items at Michael's! When we see 60% off we simply can not help ourselves! Love this community of crafters and glad you are part of it! Diane #80

  6. Your flowers look lovely. I'm not really a colourer so I've yet to try the Blendabilities.

  7. Lots of cool goodies on your desk today! I haven't tried quilling.

  8. Beautiful stamped flowers , I love the garland circles those are perfect for scrapbook and card making becase they already have the thread on them so they appear to be sewn . I like them alot! TFS :)

  9. I love the fact that everyone on WOYWW shares their help, advice and patterns so freely - it's just wonderful. If only the friendship and goodwill could be bottled, Julia would make a fortune!!
    Hugs, LLJ 21 xx

  10. I feel the same as you. I have been introduced to lots of new things and crafts (and products). Yes, It's costing me money but it's really exciting to broad the horizons.
    Those cards are beautiful! The stamp is gorgeous! (see what i mean? I've not done any stamping until I got in with WOYWW)
    Sorry for being late commenting. I got as far as 68 yesterday. Today I hope to visit everybody.
    Thank you for letting me have a peep of your workspace.
    Have a good week

  11. I've seen that gal's video. She really lays the blame to Tim Holtz a LOT LOL. Enabling is what friends are for. hehe. My eye caught that Halloween-ish circle garland. Hmmm I'm revamping my storage for pens/ markers in the new place. Don't be surprised if you get something in the mail :-) Creative Blessings! Kelly #61

  12. I always enjoy seeing the fun things you have in your workspace :-)

  13. Glad to have helped with the 'comments thingy', it was the first thing I noticed when I came to the comments page. I have never tried quilling, not sure I have the patience for it but your card looks lovely and so do your blendability flowers - I have held off getting any as I do have all the Promarkers, but I might just succumb and get the Cherry Cobbler ones as that is my all time favourite SU colour. Thanks for visiting my desk.

  14. Your desk is so neat and clean. Wish mine could look like that, but even when I clean up, it's still a mess! Hugs, Maggie
