For information as to how to join in our wonderful weekly hop around to see how messy our desks are, click on the WOYWW logo in my sidebar, which will take you to our hostess Julia’s blog where all will be explained.
I haven’t had much time this week to do anything much creative, because I’ve spent about four days on the recliner resting and feeling exhausted. I think our recent busy-ness has been catching up with me. Also, being the first week of the month, I have been busy doing the accounts, which I have now finished. In addition to this, two or three weeks ago I had to apply for a new blue badge (disabled parking badge) and sent off the application to Devon County Council, only to have it returned and to be informed that I now had to apply to our local town council since we’d moved. The form duly arrived, and of course it was different, and required different documentation, so apart from the (quite embarrassingly awful) photo I had done in a photo booth recently, I’ve had to more or less reapply from scratch. What a pain it all is! It seems these days that you can’t move without having to provide at least 3 documents proving your identity, and I have nothing with a recent photo on it.
Anyway, to my desk. This is what that end of my ARTHaven looks like today:
On the left, on the curve, is my iMac. Balanced on top of my little rack of tapes is the gorgeous pincushion made for me by Lunch Lady Jan a few years ago when we did an ATC swap with WOYWW. My distress inks are all out because I’ve got fed up with them in a box, and have yet to decide how on earth I’m going to store them… On the main desk is my latest masterboard which I completed last night (see previous post). This is what it looks like now.
You can see the brown one I made, on the pulled-out unit to the right of the picture, beside my new envelope punch board.
The other night I spent quite a long time cutting up a new set of alphabet stamps that came with my recent new parcel of stash, and sticking them down onto EZ Mount Foam. Even with my Tim Holtz scissors that have non-stick blades, it was an extremely sticky and unpleasant job! Not my favourite occupation but it had to be done.
I am hoping to have more time and energy for art during the coming week. I have been finding it very frustrating that what small supplies of energy I have, tend to get used up doing things I have to do, and then there’s none left for any fun! I’ve had the result of my blood test and I am still anaemic, so back on the iron again. Shoshi pumping iron lol!
Happy WOYWW, everyone.
