WOYWW# 164

I thought I would give you a look at the right side of my work desk. The top picture is what's right at arm's length from my work surface I like having stuff close. You might also see on the side some tie-dye spray cans. I picked those up at Joannes with my 50% coupon. I want to see if I can use them with stencils in my art journal and get a good effect. The bottom picture shows my cart on wheels that hold little metal baskets of my sprays and paints. The second shelf holds my stickler, Inktense pencils, pearl-x and lumaire paints. Clear on the bottom are my canvases waiting to be worked on. You can see I use loaf pans, baby wipe boxes and tin cans for containers too. Love to Up-cycle. Had to post a little early, have a really busy morning. Make sure to visit and see what others have on their desks. By the way don't know what in the heck happened to my template for the blog. Woke up this morning and all of it was changed. I don't have time to mess with it right now so I guess it'll stay that way for a time. I like the colors just not the arrangement. Oh well it's just a blog right?!?!?


  1. Peggy I love your set up - everything within reach - you are my kinda gal,

    I have to say I could not live with a 'not right' backdrop - hence I quit blogger and do my own website, and hence the white space -

    ha ha


    dxxx thanks for coming my way earlier

  2. A creative space and love the look of your journal page trace x. 56

  3. Thanks for sharing your space with us. It is just like mine, wanting to have everything right in arms reach. I am slowing getting better with that.

    Love how busy it all looks and how creative it looks like you stay. The colors of your blog are bright and cheery.

  4. Yeah...just a blog Peggy...but I would flip if that happened to me. It's a little worrying how attached I've become to everything just looking so, but I know that Blogger can play with your mind!!! ;D
    It looks like a great amount of creativity happens in your space....enjoy!

  6. Whoops! forgot to put that I am Mary Jo #119

  7. Hi Peggy, great photos of another side to your desk. By coincidence I just ordered a trolley cart an hour or so ago ... to store under my desk and fill with the stamps and ink pads currently in use. Happy WOYWW, Elizabeth x #75

  8. Hi Peggy thanks for popping by to see me. If you ever do get around to making that light box then scroll down my blog a couple of posts and there is a link to the great tutorial I followed. You desk looks full of inky painty goodness. I love Dr Seuss. I miss reading his books to my sons. WOYWW Hugs from Helen 18

  9. I wish I could play with my lumiere paints. They're so fabulous but, alas, in a box. I love all your fabulous supplies, and I bet the tie-dye sprays will be awesome.

    Thanks for stopping by, cheers rachel

  10. I really like your cart of tins and bins. It is so nice to have things within grasp. I am a big out of sight, out of mind person, so if things are nearby they are much more likely to be used. You have so many lovely things to play with!

  11. Like the panel peeking out of the bottom left hand side jenx 149

  12. wow this is truly an artist creative space, TFS

  14. I love your upcycling, I do it too, makes so much sense!

  15. Super the way everything is so much in reach.And you sure have a load of lovely goodies to play with! Di #10 xx

  16. Lots of lovely stuff to play with. Don't know what Mr Blogger gets up to at night - the title at the top of my page disappeared once and didn't come back for a couple of weeks!

  17. Wow, that's a fab creative area! Must pop back when I have more time and look at your other projects, they look fabby.


  18. You have so many goodies to play with, you lucky thing. I am having trouble with Blogger too, must be the weather :)

  20. That’s an impressive work space Peggy.
    I to line the have a few essentials close at hand but as the weeks go on I end up having more and more on the back of my desk and very little in its allocated spot.
    It’s reassuring to know I’m not the only one, Lol!

    Thanks for visiting this week and………

    Happy Crafting!

  21. Oh it looks like you have SO MUCH fun stuff to play with!!!!

    Thanks for stopping by to take a peek at my desk! I like the idea of your New Year's Resolution...using up before you buy more. I would break that resolution in a week...but it sure would be fun to try!!
