What's On Your Workdesk, Wednesday?

WOYWW #279.....back again for some desk hopping - where do the weeks go!!! If you'd like to know more please visit Julia's blog for all the details.
Today my desk is showing three cards - a Christmas one I've completed, a pink one on my work pad and one with a black cat, in progress....still thinking on this one.  Top left is my new bear Louie from the family for my birthday he's there to keep an eye on the eraser I'm always losing.  You can see my set of Derwent watercolour pencils resting on the open drawer, a bag of pink ribbons on top of a soon to be used stamp set. I've had a productive day and am off now to check out some desks. Cheers and enjoy your week Robyn my opinion!


  1. Glad your week has been productive. Mine needs to be so I will make a start today.
    Love your new bear - my friend's little girl always buys me bears for Christmas so my collection is growing.
    Hugs, Neet 29 xx

  2. Funny, I had a great set of coloured pencils and never used them much at all, but I go to my copics over and over. Cute bear - we seem to have amassed a collection of ducks, even though I can't say either of us have any great fondness for them. Maybe I need to put one on my desk to guard MY eraser! I'm always losing track of the couple of good ones I do have....

    Happy WOYWW!

  3. Aww, Louie's great and he's doing a great job guarding your eraser!! It's my seam ripper that always seems to disappear on my desk..
    Hugs, LLJ 20 xx

  4. Sweet cards and bear. I hope he can keep track of things for you. Peg R #44

  5. Hi Robyn, I'm also always stamping stuff, then having to think what exactly I'm going to do with it. I have a whole tubful of UFO's to work my way through! Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #36 xx

  6. Oh, I am also loosing erasers - found it when the dog was chewing on it! I think that might be dangerous, so I really kept an eye on them since :-)
    Thanks for visiting!

  7. I need a few productive weeks as I'm a bit behind on the old Christmas card production! I pulled some Christmas stamps out at the weekend and then made a Halloween card with some of them! Stupid or what, lol! Love the new bear, hope he takes his minding duties seriously! Have a good week.

  8. Aww love the new bear, Robyn! We are great teddy fans, and my hubby always puts them in the window during the day so that people walking down the street can look at them. Some people walk by, head down, and never see them! Other people smile as if the teddies have made their day. He wants to start a campaign - "" to cheer people up lol!!

    Your desk looks busy and productive.

    Thanks for your visit and your nice comment - I'm not feeling too bad today but trying to catch up with everything. I've got to be on top form for tonight for the next felt making class.

    Glad you like my masterboard - got to think how to use it now! I'll let you know if I come up with a DI storage solution.

    Happy WOYWW,

  9. What a good feeling! To have had a productive week!
    I like the look of that card on your desk with the round opening. I'm going to do some cardmaking too this week (I hope).
    Thank you for visiting my desk earlier. You will have seen that I too have my colouring pencil box opened. (That's as far as I got...)
    Thank you for letting me peep over your shoulder onto your desk.
    have a good week

  19. Hi Robyn,
    Love how you are able to make things and still have a tidy work area :) Are they regular Derwent watercolours or those Inktense ones?

  29. I do love a non-traditional colour card or decoration. Christmas red and evergreen are not my fave shades, bt I do love pink and lime as substitutes :)
