What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday?

Morning!! It's Wednesday! (I think!) or very nearly. As I type this it's quarter to twelve. Midnight! The witching hour! (wooo wooo!) And once more we join the World Wide Web of WOYWW !
I was having kittens, (pancaking) as my computer just would not go on line, and when it did, it kept losing everything I typed... so... less talk and more speed!!
Hopefully, if I put this on timer, everything should be okay. Touch Wood. (Or, in my case, MDF)
On my bench this week, the same as last week...but different. The start of this weeks freebie, which was going to be a girl with a flower but it changed into a moon monster with a cake. Also, after years and years and years, I've finally started painting my little chest of draws, gold, after spying something in a Crafty mag I quite liked and thought, if I can get some similar papers, it will look really nice, (sez me crossing my fingers and touching wood once again) I'm probably not going to paint all of the draws gold, only the bits you can see, it all depends on how much gold paint I have, and most of it will be covered in paper anyway.
One of my ceiling lights has just popped (bother!) and it's a bit dark in one corner, so I've used the flash (That's the flash on the camera not the stuff you clean the floor with) On the other side of my crafty space, which I don't show very often, is just a pile of magazines I've been sorting through... (to find the chest of draws I wanted to copy...) If it all works out as I want it to, I'll let you see it next week, if not...we'll quietly forget all about it!
So that's what's on my workdesk this Wednesday.. what's on yours? Nip over to Julia's Stamping Ground and join in...
Right, I'm taking my mum off for a hospital appointment first thing this morning and then she wants to go to a flower show...see you later!! I've off to's One thirty in the morning... ohoo early for me!! Zzzzzz! Scroll down for this weeks freebie!
New Followers! Hi and a big {{{wave}}} to Sadie. leake and someone else, but blogger must've added you to the middle and I can't find you! Thank you for dropping by!!


  1. It's bothersome having to change ceiling lights. But since I missed last week, I thought your work bench looked the same (grin). Happy WOYWW.

  2. It is always great to see what is going on in your spaces in WOYWW! I love the idea of gold on the drawers, I hope that it turns out fine. Good luck with mom and the doctors and the flower show! Have a great Wednesday! -Amanda

  3. A hive of creativity - looks like a fab project to do. Hope you slept well - it gets later each week for me!
    Thanks for sharing today. Sarah (at 1)

  4. Hi, Lyn - what a space on show this week..... lots and lots and lots!
    Hope you got to bed after that marathon post - it did take you a while!

  5. WOW not just your desk but your whole craft room looks crazy busy this week. Hope you show us the chest of drawers when you get it done. I love the digi freebie this week. I think I will make my granddaughters Halloween card with it. We'll see. I get to go see her next week so I will see what she is in to now! Have a great week. Vickie

  9. Little chests of drawers rock - they are my favourite thing!! I'm looking forward to seeing the end result!! xx

  10. Sounds similar to my day - light popping, things not loading up properly on computer - in fact something popped but by the time we found out what it was my chocolate brownies in the oven had kind of collapsed.
    Good luck with the drawers - sounds good to me.
    Thanks for sharing - Hugs, Neet #2

  11. Your craftroom is a maze of loveliness!!! Enjoy WOYWW!

Hi Lyn you are a busy lady Im not surprised it was gone one before you finally got to bed, and yes the desk is normal for you, hope you managed to find that book and your drawers get finished looking forward to seeing the results. And thank you for the fabulous freebie by the way. hug sShirleyxxxxx

  15. It's truly a nightmare day online. I can only post a comment on blogs that have a pop up window! Otherwise, nada!

    But at least your desk looks great. It's very tidy. You may not think so, but to me it's practically empty!

  16. I love that monster Lyn thanks for sharing it with us

    Hugs Jackie x

  17. Hi Lyn

    have I told you recently how I get great joy from reading your blogs, and then double joy from being surprised that i absolutely relate to and understand them, and all i can think this week is that the woyww double yews must be something to do with the woo woo witch ,

    witch on your woo woo

    ah ahha mwahh ahaha


  18. Have also had trouble on t'internet today. As always there are lots of interesting stuff on your desk. I have some wooden drawers that have been awaiting decoration for ages- maybe -one day. Happy WOYWW thanks for sharing . Anne x

  19. Hi Lyn, you're desk looks so busy and I'm looking forward to seeing those drawers when they are finished. I've just checked my blog and I can see the photo alright so I've no idea why you are unable to see it - the machinations of blogger are a complete mystery to me :) Hope you have a good week. Elizabeth x #60

  20. great worktable. Looks like lots of stuff stored underneath. Love your wall with all the cards and stuff. good inspiration and probably happy feelings. I'm going to be cheeky and say you can't do that... Want to see the drawers god bad or indifferent results. BIG GRIN

    Thanks for commenting on my blog post. Have a great and creative day.

  21. Hi Lyn - gold drawers? Sound fabulous - you gotta show when they're finished! I did chuckle at your posting - talk about burning the midnight oil! Di xx

  22. Drawers dammit another thing I need to do. How long did you say you haven't done yours for?......Inspiration must still be waiting for it oh yes and some materials for painting them with etc.

  23. I have a huge pile of drawers to decorate but only sorta done one! I keep finding other things that need doing! Maybe one day!!

  24. The light in my computer room just blew last night while I was trying to hop around the WOYWW desks (yes, I know I am VERY late this week, LOL), so I gave up and went to bed.
    Hope you had a great day out with mom.
    Happy very belated WOYWW

  25. Love your craft room pics- the pictures I never show of my room look much the same, lol.Sorry I am soo Late visiting this week, Happy (late) WOYWW, Shaz
