WOYWW 193

Ms. Julia Dunnit, as every Wednesday, is hostessing Whats On Your Workdesk Wednesday.  It is THE great "SNOOPING" day of the week, where we hop from blog desk to blog desk around the world, being the curious people that crafters of all kinds are.  So Here is my "Betsy" fully loaded this week.  I am working on a canvas for DIL's birthday, which is tomorrow!  I saw this on Pinterest, it is just dates of importance on a canvas, and I thought it was such a cool idea. So far there is their wedding date, in red and both daughter's birth dates in a light tan.These are the colors in their house  Above the red will be my DS and DIL birth dates.  Since the red is not standing out( the way I visioned it) I am thinking of adding a top layer of numbers, maybe in a gold, then I'll Decoupage the whole thing a couple of times.  Will be a busy day.
So what else is there? maybe I should list what is NOT on there....LOL   Far lower left corner is just a peek of a rolling storage with my Big Shot on top, then peeking out is the Sizzex Embossing purse (granddaughter's favorite toy), plates for Big Shot and mini storage drawers.  Top left are divided storage boxes with all kinds of little add-on type things, then a shelf with NEW  rolls of ribbon ( they need to be put away with the rest of my ribbon so I can remember I have them),above that shelf are pictures I drew of what I thought the customers looked like that called the West Elm/Pottery Barn catalog call center, below that is a shelf with acrylic mounts, a container of needed tools, to the right is my stamp pad storage, and to the far right are a couple of shelves that hold tubes and bottles of stuff.  The desk top : my CriCut cutting mat with dates still attached, black Ott light, containers of tools, flower pot with glue resting in it,  a new owl stamp in front, Q-tips and craft sticks, water pot with brushes still in it (NOT something I usually do w/ paint brushes) white Ott light, bottle of white paint, turning storage for pens, pencils, special brushes and scissors.  The rest is pretty much identifiable clutter.
Had a lot of comments on having 2 lights on my desk,  well that is because Betsy is an altered closet!   And we will leave THAT as is.......LOL  Do join the fun by jumping to Julia's blog, where everything is explained, oh! you need the addy!

  7. Oh now that you have said "altered closet" we cannot leave that as is. I think next Wed. you can give us a wider shot so we can take Betsy all in! Thanks so much for taking the time to visit my blog and leaving me a comment, it's much appreciated! waving hi from the hills of North Carolina ♥

  8. What a lovely well-stocked work space. The significant dates is an interesting idea. I think the red 'pops' out quite well.
    Thanks for calling by my blog. Arwen looked interested when the babies started to squeak for their tea, but as long as she got hers first she wasn't too bothered. Our two big dogs had one sniff of them and walked away in disgust. That might change when they get their tails chewed! The other cats haven't been introduced yet.
    have a great week.

  10. oooh neat canvas and neat work area even if it is in a closet (possibly the largest altered art item I've come across so far?) Your cartoonish faces are really cool - did you do them yourself? Thanks for stopping by, Cindy #75

  11. Hi Krisha,

    What a cool closet! I noticed the drawings of the faces and wondered if you had drawn them - very cool!

    I'm sure your DIL will love her canvas!

    Thanks for stopping by!

  13. I love your canvas idea! I am STILL (i wanted them to be done for Christmas) making canvases for my boys. I am using their favorite sports teams players numbers and colors. They also told me what their number they would be if they went to the NBA (not going to happen unfortunately) so I am adding them. So it is a similar project and I think it is a great idea!!
    I love your ink storage too!!

  16. Hi Krisha, Happy WOYWW. I'm a bit late getting round, but I felt right at home on your desk (and since you saw MY desk, I bet you know why!). You've got some lovely things going on here...your DIL is going to fall in love with this so personal project. I think the gold embellie will be perfect to set off your red. Please show when you finish. Thanks for visiting, and come again soon. Hugs Mary H #136

  20. I am sure your DIL will love her present, created with so much love and thought. Thank you for your visit this week. The stamp sets are from Sheena Douglas, but may not all be available now as she has gone on from there and may have "retired" some of these sets. Hope you have a good week. xx Maggie #8
