WOYWW 330

WOYWW 330 and this week I remembered as I was piddling around on the PC that there was a real task to do.  Grabbing iPad for a photo of a workspace that is a little less cluttered than normal, it was time to get on with writing. Just returned from an morning with my friend Deanie, who is now 80 and continues to create adorable fabric goodies.  Currently she is making fishes for an installation next july.  Rushing into the studio and plonking down the goodies I had taken to show her on my desk covered up the cleared space , thus preserving my reputation as a messy person.


 The intuitive painting made at the retreat this summer, (making this masterpiece of modern art was a blast) is laid out along with the finally finished travel journal (Gathering of Goddesses)and my Journal 52.    My journals are up to date and my current task is trying to decide my direction for next year.  

For those new to my blog you may be wondering what is madness is or just wondering why a messy person shows her messy mess. Well head over to headquarters and find out why people from around the world show this stuff and discover the world of crafting.  See everyone tomorrow.

WOYWW 328

Just remembered as i was wasting time organizing my photos in Windows 10.  I am slowly discovering how Picasa works, though several hours were spent on Sunday trying to find the edit button.  It failed to appear then it was discovered blanked out.  Mr Google to the rescue.  The plan was to organize the photos in my desktop and then compare to Picasa.  Today a sad attempt was made to tidy up my desk.  My muse rose from the depths of her underground storage and refused to help. instead I will post a photo of  what was on my desk a couple of days ago.  It was meant to be for this weeks journal 52, alas Dropbox is in revolt, that no amount of coaxing has produced an upload. 



After weeks of trying to make the David Brill mini origami book it was discovered, on Sunday in the late afternoon, that I had actually made not 1 but 2!  Discarding them as they were not quite perfect and after many frustrating hours  a little manipulation of fold lines and there it was, the blue thingy to the left. The yellow one resisted assistance and at this time seems headed to garbage rather than restoration.  This view is my desk with the pile of would bes that did not make it, well half the pile.  They keep appearing it all kinds of folders, boxes and places that my desperate self slung them. 

This has been a great week as the internet works(although they have yet to bury the cable) and for the first time it is possible to watch a full video.  

That seems to be it for today.  have a wonderful wednesday checking out workspace thanks to our hostess  braving out the storms and cold of an English fall.

WOYWW WEEK 326

Last week I was able to visit many sites but not comment because my internet has a major problem and switches off for seconds at a time.  The provider cannot fix it and there are complaints.....  We went and found a new provider.  They rely on contractors who for the past 10 days have been coming. Moving on to the finer things in life!

While I can, here is today's workspace


And what happens when I move back to my desk.

The girls were very naughty last night and stayed out all night. Even when daddy showed up at 2.00am, on the deck they ran away!

Today finished my travel journal for the FroupFest art retreat in NC and my entry for the week in No Excuses. (froup is really group but someone made a spelling error so we called ourselves the froup). Now to catch up and relax.

have a great time visiting everyone.  If you are not sure what WWW stands for visit Julie.  Have a creative fun week.
