Today I decided to play in this week's WOYWW link-up, where we shamelessly share the current condition of our work desks and show our fellow crafters our work-in-progress.
Here's my desk as of a few moments ago:
I won't do the numbers today, just words. Front and center is my current project: my attempt to use a floral builder set. I've stamped, I've layered colors, and I eventually die-cut all of it. I'm not feeling the love. It may never happen.
Other items of interest ... Top left corner of the desk is my pile of challenges I'm currently hoping to do. The center blockage is the top of my desk lamp, with pieces of clothing tags washi-taped to it. I use those to keep my Glossy Accents from clogging, and it mostly works. I so rarely shop for clothing, I need to save the tags I do have so I can find them when I need them.
Top right of the desk is my usual collection of must-have tools. This stuff goes with me when I take my desk on the road.
Bottom right is a growing pile of OH, RATS things that didn't work, but that don't actually qualify as UFOs (Un-Finished Objects). I need to work on that pile.
Also today, I'm sharing my current ghetto photo studio set-up. I have a photo tent, but I can't seem to get the light right, so I use this instead:
This is a small drop-leaf table in my kitchen that I put into the corner. I have two floor lamps* I aim at the back, where I have a few different papers I use as back-drops. At the front edge of the table are three background stamps I use to support my camera. My hands are too shaky to do this any other way. (Thanks to Laura Bassen for showing us her photo set-up!)
Just to the right of this table is a french door with lots of light on a sunny day. And that stool in front? I sit on it to take the photos. I'm too old to just bend over and expect to stand up ever again.
That's it for the sharing. Thanks for stopping by!
* Why yes, there is still plastic on those floor lamps. I've had them for years, and just couldn't be bothered to take it off. It's nowhere near the bulb, so there's no risk of fire. I'm good.
