Dithering... WOYWW

Hello fellow desk snoopers. I really dithered about joining in today because I always seem to show you a boring clean desk. And guess what? I just tidied! Makes me look such an organised person when really I am possibly one of the most dis-organised people you could ever meet ;) Ah well, I missed last week so am going to bore you anyway...

Inside - squeaky clean. Sorry. I promise I was being creative last night and working in my sketchbook journal. Pictures to follow in another post. What you can see is a book that just arrived. One that I pre-ordered. It's by an artist that I've just discovered and am quite excited by. She paints very loosely and with lots of drips. (Sound familiar to those who know my stuff?) So where I have been calling myself a grungy painter - it might actually be 'expressive and loose.' Nah. Think I'll always be grunge.

That gorgeous painting on top of my desk is not one of my creations - it's by the so, so talented Cameron. You can see it closer up on her blog here.
Outside at my messy desk - the declutter continues. There's a pile of books where I'm pruning my shelves. A pile of magazines that have been sorted - these ones are keepers to be put away...
My zombie doll has also made her way outside. I'll finish her one of these days. Then she can eat Barbie's head as a treat.
Well, believe it or not this is me trying to keep my post as short and sweet as possible.  I'm going to link up with Julia. If you'd like a rummage through some creative desks, studio's, floor spaces... head on over with me. I can promise a veritable snoop fest.

Thanks for stopping by :)

  1. Blimey, where is the real Carmen and what have you done with her???? LOL. That's one tidy desk and decluttering session going on there. Mind you, I love doing the same, seeing the end result is just the best bit! Loved seeing the pic of you by the Tardis - you're looking gorgeous :)
    Hope you're keeping well!
    Hugs, LLJ ~70 xx

  3. OK, so maybe i need some coffee this morning, but, when I saw the thumbnail image in my google reader for your post, I thought, at first, that the painting in your top pic was of Jesus. I was kind of, 'huh, that's not what I expected.' :-) now that I've payed closer attention, it's not Jesus and it's beautiful. (Not that Jesus couldn't have been awesome too....I mean...umm.....I'll stop tying now........)

  7. I was so happy to hear that I am not alone in the mat cutting! I was so sure I was the only person to do it!!
    I can't wait to see this "zombie doll". I'm even more excite to see her eat Barbie's brains! Oh wait, Barbie doesn't have a brain. I guess I will have to settle on her face getting eaten off!! LOL!!!
    Happy WOYWW!

  8. It can be very satisfying to change things up and declutter. It's funny how just organizing something differently or having something more visible can spark your creativity. That watercolor book looks very interesting. Happy WOYWW from Laura #101 -- thanks for already popping over to my blog for a visit. :)

  9. "....then she can eat Barbie's head as a treat" Hahahahahaha!!!!

    I'm always blown away by Cameron's artwork - I adore the one she made for you. I'm always blown away by your artwork too, so it'll be good to see your sketchbook pages SOON!

  11. I find it helps my creativity to do a good cleaning and decluttering of my space every few weeks!
    Love the zombie doll in the making. I am thinking we
    need one of those here to play with my daughter's Barbies :)

  14. Thanks for dropping by earlier and my eye does seem a bit better, with a bit of luck I will be able to get totally messy tomorrow.
    I tried tidying my mags the other week - ended up reading them all then putting them back - such is life.

  28. I've been part of WOYWW long enough to remember what the messy Carmen looked like, so no worries, I know it's all smoke and mirrors!! I hope to put up that cake recipe tomorrow and I'll try and remember to link it to WOYWW next Wednesday too. Hope Zombie Doll behaves herself!

  32. Lets trade places. You straighten my space and I'll play in yours! Ha! All my paints and supplies are still packed away since the move. Missing the smell of oils and acrylics!
    That book looks wonderful! I'll have to check into it!
    Love your journal pages too!
    Stay well and have a great week!
