Well, better late than never, I suppose. This heat is doing my head in, and it was 7 p.m. before I remembered it was Wednesday and What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday day! For full details of this most nosy blog hop where we all spy on each other’s work spaces, please click the link in my sidebar.
I still haven’t got anything on my workdesk – but I have got a workdesk at least! Work is progressing in my new ARTHaven. This is how it looked on Monday.
Andy was busy putting in the top shelves connecting the wall units, and painting them white to match.
Also this week I’ve finished painting the shabby chic shelf unit I got from Ebay, which is going above the fireplace, as the focal point for my display area. Here it is being painted – I wasn’t happy with the way it had been artificially distressed in places where distressing wouldn’t naturally happen – a mistake, I think.
It has now had several coats of white paint, and once it’s had a final coat of matt acrylic varnish, I shall ask Andy to put it up for me.
Today my new video camera arrived. For a long time I’ve been far from satisfied with the old one which was second hand, and used tapes. It worked OK but it made my computer crash, and when the interface was achieved, it kept cutting out. It also saved video in a format that my video editor didn’t recognise so every video had to be converted. The whole process was a nightmare, and adding to the equation the pathetic “broadband” speeds we suffer here, uploading to Youtube took hours. When we move, we will have decent speeds, and I shall be well away! The camera is very compact, smaller than the old one, uses SD cards, and is very easy to use, and the quality of both picture and sound seems excellent. None of my loyal Youtube subscribers will know what’s hit them once I get going with it!! Thank you Lindsay the Frugal Crafter for recommending this camera to me – she recently got one and has been singing its praises. She’s doing videos practically every day now!
I am going over to the new house again tomorrow and I expect great progress will have been made since Monday! Watch this space for more photos.
