Hi there, everyone. It's time to snoop around looking at everyone else's desks again. Join in the fun over at Julia's blog

I thought I should share the full glory of my art room as I have stuff I'm working on all over the room, not just on my desk(s). 

Here you can see my filing cabinet that was a great rescue item found by my marvellous hubby. The drawers are just the right depth to store bottles of ink and suchlike in single layers. There are bits of leather, papers, inks, ink pads, punches, and tools in there. Then there's a bookcase with art and craft and inspirational books. The ironing board is still out because I've been doing a whole bunch of sewing in the last couple of weeks - shirts, jeans, and a dress. 

You can see the pile of fabric I'm still working my way through in the centre. The black shape on the desk is a jumper I've just finished sewing together in readiness for the approaching colder weather. 

This is the other side of my glass desk. The knitting is my daughter's. On the raised shelf are papers arranged by colour so I can find just what I want when I want it. 

This is my other workstation. I stand at this one and do my journalling. 

This is the corner where things get dumped - a bag full of wool that I'm working my way through, and a bunch of wrapping papers. The other bit of knitting behind the iron is also my daughter's - a cat that she is now sewing together. 

So there you go. My desks and the work in progress. I'm off to see what everyone else has been up to this week now. Thanks for visiting!


  1. Gosh lots going on there and loads of places to "put" things! Thanks for visiting me. BJ#67

  2. Lovely to have a whole room to spread out into... As you've seen, we have that for the dollshouses, but I'd love to be able to with my own crafting!! Thanks for your visit and happy WOYWW!

  3. Look at all that gorgeous stash!! I love your daughter's knitting too. My teenage daughter has been knitting for many years, and now she's art journaling too--it's awesome! I'm with you, in that I actually stand to do a lot of things. I stand to sew, art journal--when I'm cutting and gluing--and I like to stand to type for long periods of time. Helps my back much more than sitting! Happy WOYWW! Sandy Leigh #28
