What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 284 & VSBN

    Good morning!  Here it is barely still morning as I begin this post.  I love being retired!  It is 11:58 AM and I am still in my jammies and robe!  It is not even up to freezing today and I don't think it will reach that high today.  Monday it was a record breaking 77 degrees here, and Tuesday 37, and now 25!  So, retired is really a nice thing to be today!
     Here is a photo of my messy desk.  I think it is messier than our hostess, Julia's.  I have been scrapping pages for Virtual Scrapbook Night on Splitcoast Stampers this week.  I have done 11 pages for 8 challenges out of 15 challenges.  Though, I am not finished with the challenges, I think I need to take time out to clean off my space before going any further!  There is supposed to be 13 feet of work space, but as you can see there is none.  In fact, I had to get down on the floor with my cuttlebug to cut out some dies for layers on my pages.  Hopefully, by next week, I can have the space cleared off so I can show you some of my pages.  Thanks for stopping by and stay warm!  Check over on Stamping Ground to see more deskers!


  1. Fabulous room and why is it we can always find space to work, even if it is the floor LOL! Have a great week.

  2. You have a great crafting room. I love being retired as well :-) Anne x #38

  3. Hi Sharon, Happy WOYWW, and thanks for visiting me. I have a workbench somewhere too! Brusho's are some sort of (I think - and my memory is hazy) paint crystals, you can put them on dry and then add water for some pretty backgrounds, or mix them up into paint. Now I could be wrong and as I have been out the Slimming World I haven't actually opened the box yet - but if you google brusho, or burshos you will find out lots. They were on someone's blog probably on WOYWW, anyway I kept seeing the results, you know how tantalizing that is!

  4. Fabulous work area. I used to have a studio and still didn't have enough space to work on. Thank you for popping over to visit Anita #55

  5. I had to smile when you mentioned getting on the floor to die cut stuff, because I've done that in the past. I have a little table specifically of die cutting now, so it really helps. However, my desk is cluttered with art stuff, bills to pay on the 15th, and graduate courses books - LOL! Yes, it's been crazy around here. Can't wait to see the pages you've been working on… Blessings!

  6. Gah! Sharon, SO jealous of you being retired. I am craving some QT at my desk. Cx #19

  7. What a gorgeous room you have to work in!

  8. What a fab crafting room you have. I've not visited you before, so I've had a good look around your lovely blog. So many beautiful projects.

  10. I'm tired, just reading about your busy-ness! Glad you're on a roll with it all, and look forward to seeing the finished projects. From one happy retiree to another, have a great week! Chris # 7

  11. It is strange how so many deskers this week are either cleaning and re-organising or avoiding it like me! Your room looks ready to play in! :o) Happy WOYWW Annie C #82

    I can relate to being retired! My time is my own.

  14. Glad that you're having fun with VSBN. Wow! Look at that wall of punches! What a great stamping room.

  15. I love you craft space! All those storage solutions.
    Have a good week,
    Sorry I’m late but I take my time going through them all. (I enjoy reading all the blogs and look at the photos)
