What's on your workdesk Wednesday - WOYWW #189

WOYWW #189


Not much going on today WOYWW friends. My desk is pretty uneventful. My 11 yr old woke me up a few days ago with a raging fever. We have been dealing with the flu every since. He has missed school so far all week and I am now getting sick. Ugh.

As my post says below, I was able to get some coasters gessoed, and that is all I have done since last Wednesday. The coasters were fanned across my desk after they dried and they are still in the same spot. My canvas from last week is still without a title. I did take a few upclose pictures of the canvas to share. Enjoy!!
Daisy Canvas



Thanks so much for stopping in for my WOYWW #189. If you have no idea what I am talking about, then check out the link below. I am part of a group of people who share their desks and current projects each week. It is a lot of fun to go around visiting work spaces all around the world and see what others are doing.


Well, better go back to bed. Hopefully this flu is over soon. I hate being sick, and this Momma Bear hates having a sick baby bear.

Hi, Lori, sorry to hear that you and your son are ill. Hope it doesn't last long. I don't think I noticed the cool texture of your canvas last week (the grid at the bottom of the stem, etc.) Happy WOYWW from Laura #118

Aren't children so generous, always giving us their nasty bugs. Hope you soon feel much better and have the time to get back to that very tidy desk waiting for you. xx Maggie #37

Ann B said...

Thanks for visiting my blog yesterday, always appreciated but even more so as you have the flu. Hope you are feeling a bit better today. Love the canvas, and, coincidentally I was only thinking today that I may add daisies to my green journal page - one of my favourite flowers because of its simplicity.
Snowing here this morning so I may just stay in and craft.

RosA said...

Hi Lori, Thanks for stopping by. I'm late because the internet keeps falling over! I like your canvas, so bright and cheerful! Hope you feel real better soon.

Buttons said...

Oh Lori, hope this finds you and baby bear starting to get better. Thanks for the close up of the canvas - looks great and I love that you've made such an effort with the edges too. Hugs, Jenny #29

Shoshi said...

Beautiful work, Lori! Can you please tell me how you make your coasters? I had some done by a commercial photo lab (very expensive!) using some of my zentangle designs but it would be nice to know how to make my own. Are yours heatproof and waterproof?

I'm sorry to hear you are poorly, and hope you are over it soon. So miserable for you...

Thanks for your visit - as for being a day late, no worries! As far as I'm concerned, any post up to 23:59 on the Tuesday is not too late for WOYWW!! I love having the comments staggered through the week.

You take care, and get well soon!

Happy belated WOYWW,
Shoshi #83

Charlene said...

Hope you're feeling better...love your neat desk. That canvas is gorgeous.

Erika said...

Lori thanks for the visit. Love your beautiful canvas. Hope your home is germ free soon, this house has been hit this week too....oh the joys!
Happy crafting, hugs Erika.

Neet said...

Do hope you are coping with your little one being poorly and you too. Makes it so hard when you have the flu and when you have someone else with it. Hot drinks and rest are the only cures.
Love your canvas - don't worry if the desk is the same next week even.
Hugs, Neet xx 7

okienurse said...

Bit late getting back to my WOYWW visitors ... just too busy with all those icing flowers (now done and wired ready to go on the cake!!) SO sorry to hear you have had the dreaded 'flu and do hope you are soon on the mend. I just LOVE your daisy canvas ... I'd love to try something like that but just don't have the courage to even try! Get well soon. Love Debbie xXx (have forgotten my number but don't think it matters as you've visited already!)

Rebekah said...

I'm loving your daisy canvas, WOW! And scrolling through, you've got some awesome mixed media art going on. I'd love to be able to do that. Today I sat down with some digi mixed media elements and put together a poster of sorts for my OLW. Thankful for the work of others that I can apply to my own work with all due credit!

MaryH said...

Lori, the canvas is already so lovely. Hard to believe it's not yet finished. That side detail is so intriguing and love the bottom texture with the mesh. Your daisy is so cheery. Hope you feel much better real soon, and thanks for leaving a comment even when I'm sure you didn't feel like blog surfing and commenting. Hope your little one is on the mend and you can just look after you! Hugs. TFS

Arnoldo L. Romero, MLA said...

I LOVE your daisy, Lori! That cerulean blue just makes it pop, and all the textural effects give it some nice depth. Hope you and your family are feeling better. My youngest daughter had the flu last week, and still has a little cough from the leftover junk. Blessings!

Great close ups of your daisy.. Hope you are feeling better soon.. I found my owl on a weekend trip I did with hubby, he is quite heavy and comes in quite handy when I want something to stay in place when glue is drying..
Love his big eyes.

Thanks so much for stopping by the Playhouse and leaving your anniversary wishes, Lori, especially when you were suffering with the flu! I'm sorry I'm just now getting around to my WOYWW friends to return the flavor of their visit. I took some time off to celebrate with Mister. The outpouring of love has been quite overwhelming and wonderful!

I hope you and your son are both feeling better by now! Darnell #64

Beautiful work and fun looking happy place! :) I don't even have the excuse of being ill for not getting around to my return visits very quickly this week, but I did appreciate your visit and comment and I do hope you are feeling 100% better by now. :) Hope to see you again in the quickly upcoming next WOYWW. ~Deeyll #163

I hope you are feeling a little better by the time you read this, It's almost a week since you posted. (better late than never)
I just can't help myself. I set out just to look at all the wonderful desks, then end up distracted by works of art.
This week it will be desks and comments only,

I love your daisy canvas,as i do your heart. You put so much into them.. I love the colours too.
Kindest Regards,
