What's on your Workdesk Wednesday? #91

OMGosh, I can't believe that it has been two weeks since I was able to join in with WOYWW at Julia's Stamping Ground!  Ugg....needless to say I have had major withdrawals...lol  It's hard to believe how much I really missed visiting everyone. 

 I sorta missed my goal of visiting everyone with #88.  What can I say, I have been a little overwhelmed with other blogging obligations and life has been a little crazy too...lmao.   I will do my best to visit as many as I can because I really enjoy it.  It's so much fun to visit, everyone always has so many wonderful creations, news and just goodies to share...I love it. 

Who knows maybe things will settle in soon and I will be able to visit everyone again.   One can only hope.  Can't remember whose  blog I saw these awesome Copic storage.  She had a wonderful link to them.  Of course I can't find the link at this moment.    Not sure if you can see them in my pic.  They are fantastic....Thanks!!!

As you can see from my pic I have been busy creating.  The card I just finished will get a redo...Yippee for undo, I don't like the color of the cardstock I used.  I have another project on the right that's almost done.  My area seems a little less cluttered and cleaner than usual.  I know it's not really my style.  I really thrive in a messy space.  The little horde (my grand kids) where over and we all crafted soI had to clean up a little...rofl   Yes that's baby oil on my desk, using it with colored pencils.  Works pretty good too.


A big thank you to all of you that came by to visit and leave a sweet comment last time. Can't wait to see What's on your Workdesk! Oops almost forgot, my blog candy is still on if anyone is interested. The link is on my sidebar.

Hugs, Marjo

I tend to think that's a pretty neat and tidy work space, with so much storage and organisation going on, yet still nice and active. Have a great week :-)

Do you really sit on a stool to work? Amazing if so. Me? Mm wheelchair, so not everyone's cup of tea either. Good to hear of another colouring technique - so clever.

Great desk today - not thought of baby oil with pencils... may try that one!

Neet said...

Got me intrigued with the baby oil and pencils - something else for me to try - any specific brand of pencil? Just thinking that some are softer than others etc.
Love how creative your desk is and do I spy something PINK?

okienurse said...

Busy desk! I have been using baby glycerin enemas diluted with water in a water brush for my pencils. I sounds gross but it works well and I like the effect! I also use it in a refillable paint pen as a blender pen. Thanks for sharing. Vickie #49

karen said...

Your space always looks so cozy and inviting! And lots of fabulous stash about too!
Baby oil? I am guessing it is to blend the colours? Have you tried watercolor colored pencils? They are fun too!

Baby oil with pencils? Now that does sound intriguing. Please show us the results next week!

Anniebee said...

Hahaha! I am a messy crafter too! I don't dare take pics of my desk because other than having my computer on it, you can't even tell that it's a desk. I'd love to know more about your baby oil and colored pencil technique.

I just never manage to visit everyone anytime but always visit every 5th and everyone who visits me. Thanks for a look at your desk. Never tried baby oil with pencils - might just give that a go one day. ~Thanks for the look and for visiting me.

Baby oil for blending colored pencils, I will have to remember that. I have a friend who likes to use lavender oil, needless to say, she sends the best smelling cards - I bet you do too.

peggy aplSEEDS said...

i guess you need to give a tutorial after telling us about the baby oil. i'm interested to give it a try!

Fiona Whitehead said...

Glad you popped by my OWOH - I adore the look of your desk - I could be happy there for hours - love the tip about the oil too x

Minxy said...

Great workspace, it looks like you have all your must needs within reach :) I like your Copic storage, I just wish they came in black. I heard that Goo Gone works great also with Prismacolor... baby oil smells so much nicer.

Lisa aka Myran said...

I really like your craft space! Looks like there's much going on there :)

sandra de said...

I think we are all begging for a tutorial or at least a pic of the finished project. great space.

Morti said...

Thanks for swinging by my blog! Baby oil and coloured pencils? You'll have to let us all in on your technique....

Nicky said...

Never heard of baby oil with pencils sounds interesting though - great desk - Nicky running late this week - no 16

Mrs A. said...

Appologies for late link up. Have been a way for 3 days. Baby oil! Sounds intriquing. Do you have a technique for using?
Hugs Mrs A. #76

Kezzy said...

Baby oil! That's a new idea might have to give that a try. Loving your desk it always gives me such inspiration.

Kerry said...

You have a fab space and I see lots of lovely things to play with.

Sue from Oregon said...

Oh your desk looks very similar to mine...I love everything at my fingertips too!

Pam said...

Great space the kids must have had great fun playing hugs Pam x

Susan said...

Hi Marjo,
Looks too tidy on your desk... hope you have had some time to mess it up! In response to your question, my book of card sketches shows photos/ scanned pictures of cards I have created using the sketch.
