What’s on your workdesk? Wednesday

Julia wants to know what’s on our workdesk today. Well, I’m usually not keen on sharing my workdesk, since it’s not a workdesk but a dining table and it usually is very messy (can’t remember the last time we actually were able to eat our dinner at that dinner table…), but today I really feel like sharing something I worked at for eight hours. Unfortunately, it’s not a piece of art, but it will turn out to be very useful, I’m sure. Actually, today I had taken the day off, because I desperately wanted to create a number of ATCs to be able to swap at the Art Journey Event in Zeist this weekend, but it’s now 7 pm and I still have to start working at my first one! Instead, I ranged almost my entire stash of unmounted stamps. I stamped all of them, organised by brand, on sheets of A4 paper. I laminated the sheets so they can hold the unmounted stamps.  It’s dazzling to see how many stamps I’ve collected over the past year and I haven’t even used 10 % of them… which reminds me, I’m off.  Gone stamping!

The green fluid you see on the picture is no tasteful drink. It isn’t a witches’ brew either, it’s just water I used to clean my brushes when I was experimenting with acrylic paint yesterday evening. 😉

    wow that is organised, I want to do that but didn’t think of laminating the sheets, good thinking. Like your comment about the witches brew – hee hee. You have some lovely work on your blog, especially like the butterflies.

    how organised are you… i put my stamps in polypockets, but laminating the card makes more sense… well done.

    Funny you should be organising your stamps like that as I spent yesterday doing that to mine. It takes forever doesn’t it? I’ve not got them in a folder though xx

    Oh great job! I do this – occasionally – sit down to a specific job and many hours later emerge having done a shed load of worthwhile stuff but not the original job! Those ATCs will be so much the better for being done from organised stamps!! Thanks for showing us your WOYWW – no matter desk, table, whatever, we just like the sharing.

    I was thinking just last night of making a catalogue with imprints of my stamps too, but I hadn’t considered putting the stamps in the same binder too, that’s a good idea. I prefer the idea of the Witches Brew I have to admit!!

    LOL about the pain water. I’d need to put a label on it “Don’t Drink Me” to keep from trying it. LOL
    Your stamps are so organized and neat and it looks like you have a good space there.
