What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 468

Nine years ago Julia started a little blog party called What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday. I was there in the beginning years and then life intervened and I've wobbled in and out. But I've known I'm always welcome to pop back to the friendly community that she has created. Some of the original faces are still there, some new (to me) faces - all creating, all different medium's and styles, all across the globe. Showing where they work, offering support, friendship and love every single week. 

My life has changed beyond all recognition from then - even now, some of the people I have met through Blogland have been with me along the way and I couldn't have done half of what I'm doing now without those voices pushing me on when I've felt I couldn't do all that I was hoping to. I wonder if you knew just what you were starting nine years ago Julia? 

Congratulations on the first nine years WOYWW - and here's to the next nine. 

Now to this week - a lot has happened since I last posted. My first year of uni is over. It's flown past and I'm just waiting to see if I got the marks I needed to move on to year two.

I've spent the past week napping (so tired, I've turned into a sleep machine!) and putting plans in place to carry on the momentum over the Summer - not turn into the procrastination monster that I usually am. I want to kill that beast!

My Desk Today...

Close up of the canvas board I am working on. Still grungy but much more pastels than I have ever used - I'm liking it so far though.

This is what I've been up to this week. Squeezing another table into the workshop - my friend Andi is going to be using this as her workspace too. Exciting times! It's starting to feel like, dare I say it? A working studio!

The other side, I've set up the XCut Xpress and my sewing machine. Going to have that as my printing, etching and sewing table. Didn't really think that through did I? Messy inking and clean sewing - mind you none of my stuff is ever without fingerprints or stray paint is it?
