A Busy but Not Busy Desk

 Now how can that be?  A desk that is busy but not? Well, I have a project on it that in a couple hours will be part of a video starting live of FB then saved and uploaded to YouTube.  All you see here is bits and pieces of it before I cover my glass mat and get set up. So this view today is being linked and shared with other crafters on Julia's blog, the Stamping Ground. This is week 608.


So what you see is a small 3x3 piece of black paper with hearts, a folded piece of the same, a heart die set, a heart, and a bunch of folded pieces of that same pattern paper assembled into something. But if you look just past the mat you will see a white bottle next to 2 rolls of tape.  I just got in a bottle of Bearly Art Glue from Spellbinders. I LOVE the fine tips! So far what little I've used of it I'm impressed! 
 
Anyway, my desk is pretty clean.  It has been very busy making cards and stuff for my posts next week as I'll be in the Phoenix area for a retreat and I've been scheduling posts for while I'm gone. I will be on FB sharing stuff from the retreat and some of that will probably get shared here after I get home.  So I won't be joining up with Julia and the gang next week. 

And, on a side note, we (hubby and I) were exposed directly with the virus on the 12th but we didn't get it! Praise the Lord! Quarantine is over. Meanwhile I've started on a diet regime and have lost 1 lb. in 1 week. Not much but it's a start. But my clothing is looser! Yay!

So, to my desker friends, I hope to be back Feb. 10. I hope you all stay healthy!

Busy/not busy! That fits me to a T this week. Lucky you that you got exposed but escaped!

Happy WOYWW - NOT at the hospital today but with a thumping headache yet determined to WOYWW nonetheless! Best day of my week…

I think busy but not busy describes my desk most of the time. Glad you escaped the dreaded bug, we've been in quarantine twice so far and escaped. I love my glass mat but it's mostly been used for putting things underneath to dry flat!! Happy WOYWW, stay well, stay safe, Cindy xx #8

One of my goals is to start recording what I'm making, it's why my desk looks so clear! Going to retreats seems like another world at the moment - I'm looking forward to seeing what you come back with! Stay safe and keep smiling, Lisa-Jane #10

Pleased you survived the contact. I'm presuming if you're going to a retreat it must be very organised so that you don't come into contact with others. Hope it goes well. Your desk always looks very organised, busy or not. Wishing you a very happy and creative woyww, Angela x18x
