WOYWW # 279

I'm here this morning with head bowed, asking for forgiveness.  I have very little to show for myself for the week so far and my desk is very boring I'm afraid.  I've had a painter in the house doing my ceilings and I had to put so much away so he could do the craft room and I've just been sitting here this morning admiring his handiwork.  Now I would not even begin to show you a photo of clean, stark white ceilings but I have say I am really enjoying looking at this one for sure.  So please forgive me for my clean desk and I promise to share a mess next week!

This is just showing some leftover supplies that I didn't get put away but there is nothing in process to show you at all. Also my little white shelf holds lots of inks and glues that I use most often.   I suppose I should consider this a mini vacation, but somehow I don't feel rested so we won't go there.

Now if you are wondering why I'm showing you this photo this morning, It's because of the worldwide blog hop sponsored by Julia.  Just click on her name and you can be taken away to her blog and you can see what all the commotion is about!  I love visiting all the desks each week and seeing what everyone has going on in their world.  We are a generation of talented people loving showing off our messes.  But sometimes there has to be a mess in order to accomplish something wonderful.  There is nothing like inky fingers and bits of paper and card stock and metal and paint, etc. to get your heart to pumping.

OK, that's it for me this morning.  I'm off to visit as many desks as I can before it is time to move along.

I completely understand your pleasure about the newly painted ceiling! It must look so clean and fresh :-)
It's fun to see all those glues and inks on your desk anyway! Do you use them all or do you have favourites?
Hugs, LLJ 20 xx

I wish mine was clean. You can come over and clean mine if you like. I'll let you play with my supplies. #2

I am open to anyone cleaning my ceilings and painting, gosh i would even feed them too and give them a bed until it is all done. I am getting the roof on the house fixed at the moment, long story. I wish my desk was messy maybe tomorrow with Judy this can happen.

Hopefully you can have a productive creative week.

Hugs Eliza, Yoda & Flat Susan #12

I bet you are really pleased with the fresh new cellings!!!! Just think of all the New light it will give your Craft Room. There's no telling what kind of things you might find to work on next once you get started!!!!

well rats! I am well and truly envious now of the clean fresh painted ceilings. I was changing linen in the guest bed and looked up to see a water spot on the ceiling near the window...guess roof and painting are in my future too now! Thanks for sharing and have a great week. Vickie #25

Sylvia said...

I am sure you will have projects to show next week. Everyone needs a clean desk sometimes, Glenda. Happy Wednesday and have fun making it messy again! enjoy the smell of fresh paint on the ceilings.

You probably feel really good in your newly painted ceiling room. And most everything put away. Probably hate to mess it up! ;) I am like you, in that I like to keep my most used supplies handy. Makes things go smoother if you don't have to look for those things you will use the most. Happy WOYWW! Thank you for stopping by earlier. #28

It may be quiet on your desk this week but there's lots of potential with all that product! Enjoy your new ceilings! Happy WOYWW, Cindy #41

Lisca Meijer said...

Reading about your ceiling I feel ashamed about mine. But still you visited my desk, saw my craftroom and posted a nice comment. So thank you very much. I'm glad to have a craft room so I'm not moaning about the ceiling.
Enjoy your little break from crafting and I hope your creative juices will flow again and the mojo is back in full swing next week!
Happy WOYWW!

Neesie said...

Everything's there ready and waiting for you ;D
I've just had our house painted throughout so I can relate to you admiring the ceiling!
I love that fresh smell of paint too Enjoy WOYWW Neesie #31

I get the newly painted ceiling thing. I still walk into my cleaned room and just stare. You might not have a project to share but you sure have a lot of goodies to look at. Enjoy your break and clean paint.
Have a great week.

I NEVER seem to look up, hence all the cobwebs I now notice, thanks to you :) I often have a desk full of needing to be filed supplies and sometimes it's fun to challenge myself to create from JUST what is left on my desk. One of my favourite layouts is one I made from stuff I found n the bottom of my crop bag and one sheet of cardstock to build it on, :)

Happy WOYWW!

I would be ecstatic to stare at clean white painted ceilings! I could even be persuaded to tidy up if someone would volunteer to do the painting (not me though) :)
Have a good week,

Hi Glenda,

I would love the get my ceilings painted. But oh the mess and putting things away keeps it off my radar. I'd also like to put hard wood flooring on my stairs and bedroom but the thought of emptying my room sends shivers down my spine!

Luckily I do HAVE insurance on my phone and will be getting a new one today! Yay.

Thank you for visiting me already!
Happy belated WOYWW
Peace, Kay (66)

We all have weeks like this! Now that you have perfectly painted ceilings you can get crafty again.

Shoshi said...

I bet you are looking foward to getting back to all that lovely stash, Glenda - and meanwhile, it's all worth it, to have nice clean and newly painted ceilings!

Happy belated WOYWW,
Shoshi #32

Finally got the chance to catch up with your desk - thanks for the comment you left for me. I'm always fascinated to see what products and tools everyone has so I enjoyed having a nosey at your desk!
