What is on your workdesk Wednesday? #91

unfinished projects galore

I popped over to  dragon-dragonsweb.blogspot.com to see what wonderful things Frankie is up to & spotted the W.O.Y.W.D.W. meme - cute idea I though. Soooo - here is a corner of my messy set up. I am ashamed to admit that these projects have been sitting here 1/2 done forever. This is a flip down table that is attached to the door of my armoire style desk. The main desk looks like a hurricane blew through. If I get the camera going maybe I'll shoot it next week (think I can clean it by then? haha).

If you have some time, pop over & visit Frankie - she just blogged about a workshop with Tim Holtz that looks fun.

box lid in progress
This box lid is one of the items collecting dust on my desk. Sorry about the poor quality web-cam photo. I was working on this box months ago when I made a stupid mistake & have yet to decide if it is worth salvaging or time to pitch & start again.

Italian Bicycle Polaroid Transfer Tile- $10
My desk is also covered in a bunch of these Polaroid transfer tiles that I recently took down from a local gallery. I am listing them in my ArtSnark Etsy shop. 

These marble tiles are 4" sq & have hanging hardware on back. This bike was resting outside of  my MIL's childhood home near Venice, Italy. (I have so many photos from that trip & really need to do something with them...) The image was made into an emulsion transfer that I put on marble tile & then colored with markers, watercolors and colored pencils.

So, that is what is on my messy desk today? What are you up to?


  1. love the bike! I too have lots of unfinished items, but I also have a UFO (Un-Finished Objects) cupboard to hide them in... LOL happy WOYWW!

  2. ooh, lovely desk with lots of UFO's...thanks for sharing

  3. Woo lovely and messy!!!! Thanks so much for the mention too!!!

  4. half finished projects are the story of a crafter's life, don't you think? I have half finished cards, clothing, quilts, needlepoint, cross stitch, knitting and crocheting (and I'm sure I'm forgeting some too! Have a great day!

  5. That tile is neat, but not nearly as cool as that stamp attachment on your sewing machine. I guess I need a sewing machine even though I can't sew!

  6. I love the bike tile!! And yes my work table looks like that too. I have so many projects that I started last year that still await me and this is March!!! Sigh!! and Yikes!!
    I have been busy with house decorating and taxes. Quite the combination don't you think? Ha!!
    Be well sweetie!!

  7. that mask is so cool! Your projects look great!

  8. Love your desk- lots of UFO's- always come in useful when you need something quick! Shaz #125

  9. Lovely desk! Love the bicycle transfer tile. Sometimes projects just need to age a little so they can decide what they want to be. That's my story anyway, and I'm sticking to it :D. TFS! #157

  10. I have a million projects that need attention, but unfortunately, they are not art-related. I would love to be able to create more! Maybe someday...

  11. Welcome to WOYWW! Late, as usual I'm afraid, but still happy to visit you! Your desk is interesting. I can see no stupid mistake on that box lid - so when you do correct it, you will show, huh? Love the polaroid tile idea, oh my, way above my understanding!
