What's On Your Workdesk, Wednesday?

 Good afternoon fellow WOYWW-ers from stinking hot Gladstone in Australia....had lots of menacing clouds this week and an almighty storm last night so now with the sun out and temps of 39C or 95F it isn't half humid. Worse storms though in Brisbane with golf  ball size hailstone causing millions of dollars damage. my opinion!So here is my desk today with little piles of tools and debris about. I have been making a gift box for a special person...that yellow box with the white lid is my prototype and to the right my mostly finished box.  Just trying to decide on a decoration for the top, that's why there is a pile of punches on the left and dies and scissors on my workpad. Also in the middle resting against my caddy is my final tag for Tim H's 12 tags of 2014 - I'm quite pleased that I actually played along each month.
If you'd like to visit other WOYWW 288 desks, please pop over to Julias blog here and read all about it and join in the fun.  A big thank you to everyone who visited my desk last week and left encouraging comments.
 Have a fabulous week Cheers Robyn


  1. Oh that box is gorgeous Robyn, lovely lovely choice of papers. Am so glad you weren't in the line of the hail storm, it was reported on our national news, so must have been extra ordinary.

  2. I'm supervising the munchkins playing happily with their Lego so grabbing a few minutes to do a dash round some of my favourite blogs.
    I really love your box...clever you. So glad to hear you're safe from the weather.

  3. The storms have been crazy. such a shame we live in a country where some people aren't convinced about climate change :(

  4. The box looks really pretty. Horace at no. 46

  5. Gosh, I don't think I could take that heat! The "miserable" British weather suits me fine - as long as I can stay indoors when it rains, LOL! Love your crafty little corner there! Happy WOYWW! zsuzsa @ InkDinkyDoodle #40

  6. Your project looks amazing!!
    It's cold and stormy here in the UK ... Bet you're missing the cold Lol!!

  7. Loving the look of your box, the papers really make it very elegant and boo to the hail and humidity... it amazes me that this time last year I was in Brisbane! Happy WOYWW to you, Annette #22

  8. Robyn, the boxes are amazing! Beautiful papers. Saw comments on FB about the terrible damage from the storms- glad you were all ok. Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #11 xxx

  9. Beautiful box! Whoever gets that will love it, gorgeous choice of papers!
    I don't want to know about your heat, lol, it's very cold over here at the moment. We heard from our friends in Brisbane about the storm, they didn't have too much damage....
    Hugs, LLJ 21 xx

  10. I love that pretty box and your desk is so inviting. Happy WOYWW! Sandy Leigh #56

  11. So glad you were out of the worst of the storms - very scary! The box is looking good do show when it's finished. Take care of yourself, and have a great week. Chris # 13

  12. Gorgeous box, and well done for doing all the tags. I failed 12 times this year, lol! Glad you're safe from the storms. Helen 8

  13. Hi Robyn
    It must be really hard to get into the Christmas spirit in those temperatures. Your box is gorgeous.

  14. Your box looks awesome, lovely patterns!
    It seems strange that you have summer right now and we are freezing :-) The idea of sitting at the beach on Christmas is somehow nice but strange for us that are used to snow in december.

  15. Your box looks absolutely beautiful Robyn. The recipient will treasure it I'm sure. Thanks for visiting me. Happy WOYWW Anne x #29

  16. Gosh, that's pretty hot! Temperatures are below zero here!
    That gift box is gorgeous. I'm sure she/he will like it a lot.
    I wish you would have done a close up of your TH tag as it was difficult to see, but the colors look great.
    Thanks for stopping by at my page earlier.
    Have a great week

  17. Hi Robyn,
    That box is lovely! Great papers!
    Weather pretty much the same down here, overcast and muggy, expecting more storms, sigh.

  18. Robyn,

    That box is so pretty are those dye cuts going on the box? it is going to be a special surprize for someone, lucky them. thanks for the post comment the other week. Oh the extreme weather here in australia is a doozy for you at the moment, take care and have creative fun.

    Hugs Eliza & Yoda 70
    Happy WOYWW

  19. I love the box Robyn :) I wish it was coming over to my place. 95F is a lovely temperature to me but I am a crazy desert rat from Arizona lol. Thanks for visiting my blog earlier <3 Shel #60

  20. a lovely box, Robyn,
    hot temperature, here it's also stormy but cold and rainy :-((
    yes, the force of nature is unpredictable!

  21. Your little box is so beautiful. That pattern is gorgeous. The weather has been awful and so humid. We've had big storms each day here in Bris so I've not been able to comment, I'm still on a plug in computer. Thankfully the storm last night has killed off the humidity here, hope it's better for you up there. Have a wonderful Christmas.
