What Ain't on my Workdesk Wednesday?

A bit of the aftermath...not showing the other end or other side...show a girl some grace...
Seeing as it's Wednesday, I can let my desk run around in its undies and not be ashamed. This has to be the busiest month of projects I've ever known. Everything I had taken on had an October deadline. Most of which I can't even show yet. Booo. I am utterly zonked... still in love with all things inky, but actually looking forward to the weekend off! Phew...I'm almost there...


Here is one sneaky peek from one of my new projects for October's My Mojo Monthly feature and challenge which goes out this Saturday!!! Really hope to see you there. Tomorrow I'll be doing a last bit of tweaking, taking all the shots and probably quite a lot of faffing around...but I'm very excited about the new "stuff"

Seems Tuesday night is becoming a Wendy Vecchi night for me as I tinker away with the challenges from Lori at the EWV group. Here is a little hanging last night. Taken on the only free corner left in my room!!! I kept saying, "I haven't got time this week". Famous last words...



A side shot, The little frame, flower and hand are Art Parts which add just the right amount of dimension. Yet another flower has crept in. I was planning a riot of colour but I think Autumn deserves a lot of love and attention, before we all go into a Festive Frenzy!
Ok, this is the PR bit... It's the last week to enter September's My Mojo Monthly where I want to see you working those stamp sets...! I'll be back this Saturday (October 1st) with lots of new ideas and ta-dah! an interview with Tammy Tutterow - DON'T MISS IT!
UPDATE - IT'S HERE!
I'm all done for now, even the matchsticks holding my eyes open are starting to bend... Am I getting up, or am I off to bed? Not sure anymore. Thanks for calling by, it really does mean a lot to me. Really. For more fabulous desk love, head over to Julia's and join in the fun. I am officially signing off...so it's over and out here.
Sarah.

Yikes... ok, that's a very busy desk!! Sometimes you just have to make a mess to create something beautiful!!

scrappystickyinkymess said...

Why is it that everyone seems to be so busy lately? Too much inspiration maybe! I need to make a note and check back for mojo monthly - although that will just add to the busy, won't it? :)

Happy WOYWW

Sunshine Girl said...

Love your busy desk and I think your frame is great too. Isnt it funny how we get busy this time of year - I think the changing seasons gives us inspiration and also the cooler weather makes it easier to stay in and craft too doesnt it! Good luck with all your deadlines.

Craft Addicts - Tracy Evans said...

Helen said...

What a desk.... but I want to see the rest too.... Love your EWV piece. I am going to have to miss this week's one, unfortunately.

Lunch Lady Jan said...

Wow - what a desk!! But when you produce such pretty pieces, does it matter? Hope you had a good kip :) xx

Julia Dunnit said...

The thing is, if you;ve got the seed of an idea in your head, you MAKE time do something you like,, huh! I used to say that to the women that would come into my shop, look around and then tell me that they didn't have time for a hobby. Worked out why your desk holds so much more than mine (no, really) - you have a corner....
Lovved your circles post. Have corrected the link on WOYWW, it was going to a post on 23rd, some of your comments may be over there!

Franka Benjaminsen said...

Looks you're really busy! Keep your head cool and enjoy your weekend off. Like the stamps and colours of your wall hanging. If you don't have enough place for it... I have :-D.

That is such a busy desk, but you seem to be enjoying it all so much.

Ann B said...

Wow Sarah, you must be a winner in the 'how much stuff can you cram on your desk at one time' competition. Love the hanging you have done.

karen said...

That is a lot of stash out on your workspace! But it's good because it means you are busy crafting! And the pieces you make are always so fabulous so who cares if there are a few bits and pieces lying about, right?!
Sorry I haven't joined in your MoJo Monthly yet but I do have the link up on my blog and I do check in. But, really I will do it!!!
And I wanted to invite you to my giveaway on my blog if you'd like to come enter!

Shoshi said...

A nice, busy, productive workdesk, and certainly nothing to be ashamed of, Sarah!! I love the piece you've made, with its rich autumnal colours. Very seasonal!

Marjie Kemper said...

Another beautiful piece! Love your way with DIs.... the colors are just gorgeous. Am hoping to squeak in on Sept MM today and I'm really psyched to hear Tammy is the October artist.

Cardarian said...

Uhhh love the messy desk - really I can have a good snoop and spot things I don't have and need! :-)
Always an enjoyable read this blog of yours!
Hugs,
Cardarian

famfa said...

Nothing better than a messy desk. Love your little hanging.

Dorcas said...

Gorgeous project! And I would guess by the view of your desk that you had A LOT of fun making it! :-)

Joni Nickrent said...

So many fun and creative things on your desk...love your work! Pop Art Minis

fairyrocks said...

Well it does look like its been though a bit of a 'panty' raid, but that is all part of the fun. Keep smiling and creating

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

What a crowded desk! I know how things can pile up, though, if you don't pick up and put away as you go. I got a late start because I fell asleep before I could link up with Julia. Your desk is always fun to see, though, as is your EWV.

I'm 42 this week, not even in the top 10!

Elizabeth said...

Hi Sarah, I'm totally mortified this month as my Mojo has been noted for it's absence and I've been struggling to even decide which stamp set I should be working ... however, I may come up with something yet, there's still a couple of days to go. In the meantime, if anyone's blog is inspirational it's yours - love you Autumn themed hanging and, as usual, I enjoyed reading your post. Happy WOYWW and hope you have a great week ahead. Elizabeth x #73
