About Me

My photo
WELCOME to my little arty world! Trying to make art is a huge part of my life ... love nothing more than messing around with inks and sprays and generally making a mess!

Simply can't be Wednesday again!  
Wasn't last Wednesday only yesterday?

Anyway, short and sweet just as our much loved Head Desker likes - easy when there is nothing on your desk to actually share

Just a huge gaping space where activity should be taking place ... but,  nope, nuffin'
Doubt there will be much of anything going on here today so won't wait and will just leave you with my sad looking space

This is how I left my desk yesterday afternoon after finishing the orange and green panel - didn't even clean my mat which is very unusual - nor my jam jar by the looks of it
You can just spot my Olay - in easy reach to constantly apply as I am really dehydrated at the moment and flaking away ... do I apply it constantly?  Of course not ... even though it is right under my nose!

The black case is something that appeared from the garage
Had asked Phil a few days ago if he had any small hinged tins knocking about
He hadn't but came across that case yesterday amongst stuff from daddy's that he is still sorting his way through ... it might just do the job once my mood is right

The plastic take-away box holds some resin pieces I made a while ago 
Thought I might use them on one of the panels I discarded from the swift/swallow piece I did yesterday but changed my mind

Just noticed my pencil case looks staged - proudly showing off its WOYWW badges
But I promise that is where it always is
No matter if I am here out in the conservatory or in the dining room in the colder months my pencil case HAS to be in that position - feel quite out of sorts if it migrates elsewhere!!!

A few people were asking about my walls after last weeks post so am sharing a few general photo's

I only ever intended hanging stuff on this one wall as the door you can just see is always open so hides most of it ... but I ran out of room and was told not to shove my stuff in a box but to hang it up ... so I did

Sorry for sharing the writing on the wall again but someone did ask specifically about it

I have been everso lucky to have some 10th Anniversary ATC's arrive already but they are well hidden and won't be shared until after the crop on Saturday
Just have a simply wonderful time to all those that are going ... my spirit will very much be there with you but I have to keep the body well hidden away these days for fear of scaring little children and the vulnerable (a hernia the size of a small mountain is not a pretty sight!)  Oh, the vanity!

Happy WOYWW'ing today and if you want to find out more about our desk-sharing Wednesdays then The Stamping Ground is the place to be



  1. What amazing art work you have on your walls Debbie. Most inspiring. If I have enough tags at the crop (i think I will), I will send you one via Shaz and Doug. Happy WOYWW. Sarah #12

  2. There's nothing "sad" looking about your desk, Debbie - I've just been admiring all those projects in the background - wow - and the walls too! So full of pure awesomeness! I happen to come right after you this week as well - we seem to be posting around the same time! I can't wait to put your ATC on my blog and brag LOL! Have fun this week and I look forward to seeing all those projects in your pipeline! zsuzsa #23

  3. Hi Debbie, oh my what a fabulous sight your artwork on your walls is. Amazing creations, my lovely friend. If I had half your ideas & talent for it I'd be a very happy bunny! Much love to you both, Shaz XxXxXx

  4. Wow, that's a proper art gallery, your work is gorgeous, I'm proud to have some on display around my home xx. We shall definitely be thinking about you at the Crop Debbie!
    Hugs LLJ 8 xxx

  5. Your artwork is stunning! I will miss meeting you at the crop and we will be thinking about you. Happy WOYWW! Love & God Bless, Caro x (#15)

  6. I love your desk. Not boring at all. I also think your walls are incredible. You make incredibly beautiful art. I would hang it, too. It's truly impressive. Happy WOYWW from #1.

  7. I am THRILLED to see your art being displayed, Debbie because it is always stunning. Thanks for letting me know the atc arrived safely. We will miss you and will be thinking of you.. maybe you will be able to craft in unison with us if not in person! Helen #3 xx

  8. WOW Debbie your work is amazing such talent. Hope your ATC turned up - it was posted last Thursday. Anne x #9

  9. Hi Debbie. I didn't get your address to send an ATC. I can give it to Shaz on Saturday if you prefer. Your artwork really is amazing. So pleased it's on the walls and not packed away in boxes. Sorry we won't be meeting up on Saturday - Maybe next year! Have a lovely week Heather x #11

  10. Hi Debbie, it's good to see your work on view. I am the guilty one of having most of my stuff in boxes. I need to find somewhere to display it. Have a lovely crafty week and a happy woyww, Angela x17x

  11. Hi Debbie, Of course it is fine to use the logo! I will send you a badge and the promised ATC via Shaz at the crop if that is OK. Let me know if there is a better way to get it to you. xx

  12. Thank you so much for the absolutely beautiful atc which is more a piece of artwork than an atc. And the little box you made for packaging! The whole concept must have taken you ages - the box Shaz brought was full!!! Oh, and the paper you wrapped them in too. What a wonderful array of gifts all in one package. Thank you so much, so very much. It was beautiful and will have to be displayed, not hidden away.
    hugs, Neet xx
