What's On Your Workdesk, Wednesday ?? my opinion!Week 303 at What's On Your Workdesk, Wednesday..... want to know more pop over to Julias blog, find out the details and yes join in the world-wide desk snooping.
Here is my desk, first thing this morning.....
trusty laptop on the left and then a couple piles of "cards in progress" maybe I should give them an acronym CIP - I'm always making them - ideas I see and try out, bits I've collected for a card challenge - there's at least four in the wind there. Hanging from my colourful drawers...a birthday calendar from Daphnes's Diary mag, then at the back two cards on my birds recently received in the post.  Now on the right is my container I took to a card class yesterday - that just got dumped on the desk as I pulled out all the bits to the card we were making - that colourful Easter easel card on my work pad with left over papers and tiny punched flowers and eggs - it's not finished as I'm going to put my twist to it!!!
 Now I just had to add this later photo....can you see the addition.....a set of Gelatos - I spied them at BIG W while I was out shopping this morning and I'm eager to try them out.....sadly they are still there as I type this post - I've been busy with housework and preparations as we are off again tomorrow to visit the family in Townsville as it is our daughters 30th this weekend.
That's all from me this week, the sun in a golden orb just above the horizon and shining brightly into my craft as we Aussies say..."see ya later"
Cheers Robyn

  6. Oooh, you have been busy, all those 'unfinished symphonies' are going to be brilliant when completed, I love the easel card, so summery, makes the sun appear to shine even when it is dull and threatening to rain here.
    Thanks for sharing, and visiting my page.

  7. I love all the colourful pieces on your desk, the Easter card is great. I keep getting tempted by Gelatos but then always find something else I'd rather buy instead, have a great week

  8. I Love the cards on your desk they are so bright and festive. I think I have that die too and it has not been used either. Oh and the Gelatos I got a box the other week and have not started using them yet it is on the agenda but will be watching you closely to see what you create with them. I have not seen them in Big W must look out for them there.

    Hugs Eliza & Yoda
    Happy WOYWW

  9. I love the layers and colors of the cards you are building Robin :) ~Stacy #63

  10. Love your colorful, busy, happy desk! You are going to have fun with those gelatos--I really need to add more colors to what I have. I just love their creamy goodness, and that they can turn into watercolors. Happy WOYWW! Sandy Leigh #46

  11. Your desk looks like a happy place to be! That brightly colored Easter easel card is wonderful. You have some great bits near it to finish of that card and it will be fabulous! I recently noticed Gelatos in a desk drawer. I think I used one of them once. Oh my! So much stash! So little time! Judy #66

  12. A riot of color, great way to start the day. Have fun with the gelatos, I love them.

    Happy WOYWW
