WOYWW... Tidy?

...well it is a bit tidy - being as I am positively glowing in the light from my halo, I thought that I would show you that my desk is uber tidy and has a WIP on it... the Bubbly Funk Circle Journal I am working on at the moment... anyways... yesterday it was a completely different story... bits of paper, old snarly babywipes that were soaked with mopped up paint and sprays... general detritus that I hadn't bothered to clear away... but the New Year Resolution is still intact (after a fashion)... just don't ask to look on the floor or the other desk lol I have to add that the bright light in the top left corner of the pic is actually my desk lamp - for some reason today it looks like a burning bush lol




Anyways... all this waffle about my desk... is because today is Wednesday which means that it is time for the desks of the Blogasphere to be shown to anyone who is nosey... I mean inquisitive *ahem* because it is What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday again... hosted and devised by Chief Desk Inspector Extraordinaire - Julia... if you click on her name you will be whizzed off on the back of a large parasol (well, it is going to be sunny again today and I do need to protect my fair English Rose skin lol)




Now, I hope you are sitting down for this next bit!! On Saturday morning I actually suggested that I have my photo taken!!! I know - I was stone cold sober too!!! Actually, I am rather pleased with the nice pic - me wearing my altered tophat headband - which I had planned to wear all day Saturday and Sunday but in reality it had to stay under the desk because whilst wearing it I looked like I was taking deportment lessons - either that or I had an invisible neck brace on! Memo to self... when altering something to wear, ensure it isn't too heavy to be comfortable. Basically, everytime I moved the blasted thing fell down over my eyes... Right, time to go and do something inky... I am up with the lark today because Grim is on earlies... part of me wants to sneak off back to bed but the other part of my is loving sitting here listening to the dawn chorus... cor those birdies are noisy! Thanks for looking... have a fab Wednesday! TTFN

PS... it would be just plain rude of me to mention again that in FIFTEEN days I am jetting off to America to do...Ranger U... and to visit Ellen... so I shalln't mention it ..... rofl

Cute hat, gorgeous model....for some reason things just don't want to stay on our heads unless we sit perfectly still....need a large flat spot on top, I guess!

voodoo vixen said...

Loving that hat!! Are you sure that is not just an old photo of your desk that you have brought out again? Sure? Lovely and neat and tidy Hels!!

Serendipity Stamping said...

Well you certainly look pretty in your little top hat Hels. Such a neat desk. Well back to bed for me, it is going on 2:00 a.m. for me. I am an insomniac so this is not unusual for me. But, it really gets old. #17

Elaine Harding said...

Great piccy of you! Doing the countdown with you!

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

I love the hat, even if it was so heavy it could only be worn for a few minutes. You look darling in it. And it sounds like going to Ranger U is going to be one HUGE highlight for you. Also, one neat desk is better than none, I say.

Fabulous hat sweetie. Nailgun it to your head next time! LOL. Great photo too - thanks for sharing it with us poor folks who couldn't be there.

Julia Dunnit said...

I thought after the weekend you'd be untidy from unpacking - or is that all on the floor? How about that neat hat...'twas a great idea...when you've sussed out a lighter version, could you please make one for Lunch Lady Jan...she would adore it and it would save me messing up my desk. *g*

karen said...

You are just too adorable!!
Your hat is amazing and so is the fact that your desk is still tidy! You really stick to your resolutions!
The journal is intriguing, will we get a peek?
Happy WOYWW!

Luuurve the hat Hels! Unfortunately I didn't get to see you in it on Saturday as I would have liked a closer look. I can well imagine it doesn't go well with crafting though, lol!

The desk's looking good and I like the glimpse of the journal.

Love the top hat! You really should take it with you to Ranger U and show it off on fancy dress night. Awesome desk today. Very neat and tidy. Thanks for sharing. Vickie #78

Kate said...

Everybody together now ......
"Where did you get that hat
Where did you get that tile
Isn't it a nobby one
And just the proper style
I should like to have one
Just the same as that
Wherever I go they'd shout "Hello"
Where did you get that hat?"

Enjoy your halo for as long as possible. In fact, grab a glass of champagne, because a desk that clear and beautiful deserves it.

Marijane said...

What an adorable top hat! Reminds me of the top hat men that Tim and Wendy are showing in some of their stamps of late. I also couldn't help but notice all the cool Studio 490 (Wendy Vecchi) merchandise hanging behind you in the picture. Makes me want to go shopping!

Sam said...

Would you be going away by any chance Hels?
Thanks for putting your piccie on wearing your hat, I know you are like me and don't like your piccie being taken!
Do we get a chance to see the journal?
Happy Wednesday!!

Kirsten Alicia said...

You look wonderful. I only wish I'd seen you wearing your hat at AP. I missed Minxy too.

Chrissy said...

Super cute hat! Have a wonderful trip!

funkycrafter said...

Yeah! finally a picture of you wearing the hat. fantastic, even if it did keep falling off. too bad they don't make removable, double-sided tape for hair. just boggles my mind how you can create so many projects and have such a neat desk.

RosC said...

Hi Hels,
Numero uno this week. Great photo of you and natty hat, pity it falls about a bit! Like the desk too, however it comes.
Take care, Ros. #138

Tertia said...

I don't think mentioning Ranger is rude at all, its just as polite as me reminding everybody I am going to CHA in July. I got my passport yesterday, so now its all systems go!!! YAY!!!
I must say, I am prepared to show everybody my desk, but the floor? NOOOOO! NEVER! Its boring and anyway, nobody will be able to see the beautiful carpet! LOL
Happy WOYWW

ShazInOzCardsCalligraphy said...

I did notice that you did not mention your forthcoming trip, very good, I thought, to avoid making the rest of us so jealous. I hope your tidiness does not last too long, and the creativeness gets going again.
