WOYWW 89

Happy Wednesday fellow desk travellers! It's that day of the week when 100's of us gather at Julia's to check out each others desks (or other workspaces).

This week there isn't anything much on my desk (floorspace)  apart from this abandoned canvas that was totally frustrating my Sunday.
Everything I tried with it didn't turn out how I wanted - so abandoned! 

I will probably paint over it and start again one day!!

In the background is a lot of the other clutter that lives around me in my messy living roomcraft space! Looks bad here, but I'm used to it ...
 A few weeks ago I bought a corkboard to hang on the wall to display some of my favourite tags and things I've done - and at the weekend I finally got round to pinning some of them up. I didn't dig very far down the box they sit in once I've blogged them, so will probably change them every now and again!
It's in the hallway (and obliterating the Liverpool poster that probably should come down now as it's from 2001.... and I am a 50-something woman!  But they make me happy too (most of the time...)
That's all from me today - have a good blog hop - and I will try to visit more of you than I think I managed last week - I did ok on Wednesday but didn't get time after that to go back and see who joined in later!

Gah isn't frustrating when it won't come out of your head and onto the desk!! Canvas looks great from here, but if it wasn't doing what you wanted....file.! Love the corkboard idea, I particularly like the houses images. Remember to show us each time you change the exhibits! As for the posters - hey, if it works for you, I like it.

Love the canvas, great colour, would be a shame to paint over it IMO! Great rotating piece of art too (the cork board), like the thought of changing it around here and there.

Cork board is fab - all those great little works of art on display - lovely!

karen said...

Your corkboard looks fab! So many beautiful projects on display! And how fun that you can easily change them when you want!
Your canvas looks nice from the picture but if it is not what you wanted then maybe after you have some time away from it you will come back, paint over and start again.
Thanks for visiting me!

Lovely idea to use the cork board space for your own fav projects, it looks so cheery and colourful up there. Put the canvas in the UFO box and go back to it later... sometimes they grow on you!! LOL UFO = Un Finished Objects hugs Annette

Loving the cork board it's a great idea, I've been randomly blue tacking them around my room but the wall paper doesn't like it!!!! Your desk is full of Yummeeee craft products in the background and the cork board is full of gorgeous finished products.
