Yay - it's "What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday" (hosted by lovely Julia Dunnit) again and I managed to not miss it this time (honestly I can hardly believe it myself). lol

To answer the WOYWW question in two short words - "pure chaos". lol

There's the content of my new DT goodie bag from my wonderful Calico Craft Parts boss, Helen, that arrived about an hour ago.
The Fixit Sculpt jars have arrived just in time before the start of Michael DeMeng's new online class "Skullduggery".
The paint bottles, sealants, inks, jars, rag and slowly dying brushes in the water jar (accidentally but well hidden behind the glue) are remnants of my latest project I just finished yesterday evening (which made me forget to put the spare ribs in the well heated oven...but I guess you know this certain urge to finish a piece off instead of putting it to the side ;).

To be honest - this is how my desk looks half of the time. I found that I have periods where I can be very tidy-ish and when my desk is rather empty...and then there are times when I only tidy up before I start a new project...sometimes I need empty space to not get distracted when figuring out how to start a new project and at other times the stuff lying around inspires a new project. Seems my mind isn't made for routine.

I hope you are all having a wonderful workdesk wednesday and are enjoying yourselves! I will try to visit some of your desks later. Thank you very much for all the lovely comments of those who visited my desk from the last workdesk wednesday event. :)

Hugs and happy crafting!

  1. Hi Claudia, my I love those skulls! I may have to go shopping! Have a great week, hugs, Shaz #6xxx

  2. I would define your work desk as pretty tidy to my way of thinking. It does help to clear the desk at times so you can clear your mind. Thank you for this glimpse at your design process. The goodie bag looks incredible.

  3. Loving all those calico parts - they are fab! haven't stopped by the shop for a while (spend too much!) Have a great day. Helen #1

  4. Happy WOYWW. Lots of fab goodies on your desk. Enjoy playing with them. Ali x #25

  5. Look at those skulls they are amazing looking forward to seeing what you create with those goodies hugs Nikki 2

  6. I so love all the Calico stuff they have such a variety available. Your desk makes me feel quite at home Claudia so no problems there. Have a great woyww, Angela x 11

  7. Loving the skulls! Can't wait to see what you do with them. Enjoy your goodies.

  8. Your desk looks very, very interesting! Not chaotic at all! I understand the need to sometimes have a tidy space, but other times you need some supplies around to start a creative spark :)

    I wish you a nice week and happy WOYWW!

  10. What a great creative space - a bit of mess is conductive to creating (IMHO)

  11. I do recognise that 'ignore the oven and finish this' feeling. Very familiar! I love the sight of your desk, my word that is looking creative!

  12. Love your creative mess! It's the only way. Fun new things arrived...can't wait to see them used in your creative way. Have a great weekend.

  13. Smashing desk, looks as though you have been having a really creative time.

  14. OMG! awesome desk. I am all about halloween and fall crafts today so those skulls fit right in. Getting ready for Dia de los Muertes here in the south west! Sugar Skulls are all the rage right now. Have a great week. Vickie #45
