Happy Wednesday :)

What a week!  All sorts of stuff going on ... some good, some not so good, but trying to focus on the good and keeping positive :D

The BEST news is from my earlier post ... Tim Holtz is coming to the UK and I'm gonna be there .... woohoooo!  I'm not sure I can keep my excitement under control until then ;) but I will try ... *sigh*

So back to the matter in hand ...

... here is my desk today!  It looks reasonably tidy, but don't be fooled, it's just lots of stuff in tidy piles! I'm very good at that ;)  So, working left to right ...

  • pile of half-finished canvases and calendar pages (and book box and door hanger too!)
  • pile of paper mache houses ... waiting for inspiration
  • Percy Pigs ... say no more!  Helps with the inspiration don't you know ;)
  • June Craft Stamper magazine which I found and realised I hadn't got around to reading
  • pile of sample boards for a workshop I'm running on Saturday on faux finishes
  • mini journal book ... open and waiting ...
Ho hum, there's lots of stuff half-done and waiting .... better get eating those Percy Pigs.... lol!

Pop over to the marvellous Julia for info on what this is all about and have a fabulous time desk-hopping all around the world ... awesome people and awesome fun!

Until next time ...



  1. Ooooh loving the look of your 'alterables' ! Especially thos cute wee birdhouses! Christmas comes to mind for those! :D

    Happy WOYWW

  2. I expect it's the Pigs that keep your motivation up huh...I love the piles of stuff waiting for you - you'll whirlwind through them, I've no doubt.

  3. Happy WOYWW. Lots of lovely stuff waiting for you in piles. Percy Pigs are a bit addictive and I tend to eat the whole bag, so avoid that part of M&S now! Ali x #33 ps Congrats on getting to see TH

  4. Would you think me incredibly odd if I said I have never had Percy Pigs?
    They seem to go hand in hand with crafters - maybe I should try some...

  5. Hi Liz, I'm a big fan of the tidy pile myself, the problem is that some of my piles are looking a bit Pisa-esque. You've got some fab looking projects and those little mache houses look like a lot of fun. Have a great week. MMx #47

  6. Yes, making piles, I do that and I make the piles grow ... until I disassemble them again, sometimes just to make other piles =).
    Happy WOYWW and I wish you a lovely week.

  11. Hi Liz! Thanks for visiting earlier. For so many projects, you sure do make nice tidy piles. Its fun to see so many different things going on. AND you are seeing Tim Holtz AND you are running a workshop Saturday! You are one busy girl. Happy WOYWW, Rasz #125

  12. Oh I forgot to ask what a Percy Pig is???

  13. Hi, Liz, your desk is definitely full of interesting tidy piles. :-) The little houses could be cute for something Christmassy -- decorated and adhered to a piece of wood to make a mantel decoration? Have a blast at Tim's workshop and tell us all about it!!! ~ Laura #105

  14. ohoo what fun piles of craty stuff you have today! Love little houses, bought some from Michaels when we were over in ther states wish I got more now! Have a great week Happy WOYwW!?

  15. I am so jealous about Tim Holtz, but I think even if I wanted to go, and it is too far really, I can't on the dates that it is happening can't remember why right now.

  16. Your ring of finishes looks sooo interesting! I just took a class from tim - he's a great teacher!

  17. Wow, so many great things on your desk. I'd love to stop by and play! The TH workshop will be amazing, I went to one last time he was here and had a ball. Hugs. Pam#27

  18. Tim Holtz!! Lucky you!! Your desk is crammed full of creativity - wonderful! thank you for visiting me and have a fab week xx #67

  19. If Percy Pig helps with the inspiration Liz then keep eating and enjoy!
    I love that you have so much going on this week and still manage to keep your table in some sort of order.

    Happy Crafting!

  20. hehehe I have those piles too - I call them "piles of potential"!
    Love the sample boards and the cute little houses - they make me think of those little blue and white ceramic ones - are they called Delftware?

    Very VERY jealous that you will get to see Tim Holtz - I read about that but we'll be away and I think my DH might not understand if I suggested cancelling our holiday! Enjoy!

  21. Now that's a busy desk, can't wait to see what you do with the houses, I have a weakness for them.
    Thank you for visiting.

  22. Oh lots of lovely projects on the go.
    Congrats on getting a place of the Tim Holtz course. I was lucky enough to go on one a couple of years ago and met some fabulous likeminded people. I look forward to seeing what you make.

    Happy belated WOYWW
