WOYWW?? Do you know what that means? I do.

WOYWW #188
Hello all~
To my regular followers - do you know what WOYWW stands for?
I will be nice. I won't leave you in suspense until the end of this post.
WOYWW stands for "What's on your workdesk Wednesday?"

A dear friend Sandee, from "In The Hills of North Carolina", told me about this fabulous group that she is involved with. Each week, on Wednesday's, they take a picture of their current desk and share what they are working on. So fun!!! A great way to share more of the process instead of just the final pictures and projects. So here is my very first WOYWW post.

To all the new ladies and gentlemen who are visiting from WOYWW - Welcome!!
My name is Lori - And this is my workdesk.

It took all I had not to clean it up some and at least toss the used baby wipes and paper plate with dried paint on it. Luckily, my hubby was standing behind me and stopped me. This is going to be good for me, but hard, I am not used to sharing my MESSY process. (UGH. I just noticed there is still dirty paint water on the desk too. I really need to learn to dump that and rinse the paint brushes immediately after using them)

The current work is smack dab in the middle. It is an unfinished canvas. It is in need of a saying, quote or word, but I haven't figured out what yet. Any ideas? All I know is I want it to be stamped, written or painted in white. Come on!! We can make this a group project. Tell me how to finish it.

Well, I hope you enjoyed this stroll past my messy desk. Thanks for stopping in. Hopefully, by next week, I will have finished this project and started a new one. The next project will involve my 2013 word - TRUST.

You can also check out Sandee's WOYWW post at:

Sandee and I met painting online on Monday nights with Tracy Weinzapfel.
If you ever looking for something super fun to do on Monday's, come play with us.
Here is what we did Monday, January 7, 2013:

Be inspired, create everyday, and enjoy all of our messy workdesks!
See ya next week!!

Hi Lori and welcome to WOYWW. I've been doing this for a couple of years now and this week am visiting all the desks where the number on Julia's list ends with the same as mine (I'm 51) that way I get to see some new (to me) blogs. Thank goodness I did and found yours - beautiful canvas. Haven't visited Sandee's yet this week, just starting my tour now.
Have a good week.

Messy is good, the messier the better. we want to see real crafting going on, so no need t clean - unless you need the space to make even more mess!

Enjoy WOYWW - it's the most fun, every week!

Love your work, and have a great day

Hi Lori! Just love your painting! I just researched the words sunflower and quote and came up with this. https://www.google.com/search?q=quote+sunflower&hl=en&client=safari&tbo=u&tbm=isch&source=univ&sa=X&ei=aZTtULXvFLDXigKrjIHwCQ&ved=0CEAQsAQ&biw=1024&bih=644#biv=i|5;d|6RBU36SRlSKNfM:

Lunch Lady Jan said...

Hi there!! (Waves madly at you!!)

Thank you for dropping by, any friend of Sandee is welcome here. Be warned though, WOYWW is addictive! But I have been privileged to meet such generous, awesome and downright talented folks. You see such wonderful creations, it fair takes your breath away sometimes...as do some of the desks!!! LOL Yours is tidy by comparison, but we need to see it, warts and all. Mine always seems quite bare, but that's because I need to keep the desk clear for cutting out fabric, so I've learned to be tidy!

I adore your canvas. I think it need just one word.....HAPPY because that's how it made me feel :)

See you soon!

Redanne said...

Hi Lori, you workspace doesn't even look messy to me! I love that beautiful canvas you are working on - the only flower quote that springs to mind is 'If friends were flowers, I'd pick you' - probably too long but I like it. Welcome to the WOYWW group! Hugs, Anne x #47

PS - thanks for your visit

CraftygasheadZo said...

Hello Lori, thanks for popping by mine, Welcome to our weekly nosing session, and yes you'll soon forget about ditching the dirty wipes etc. I confess I'm not a messy crafter as such and do tidy up as I go, but when I get inky I get messy, it just doesn't always happen on a Wednesday!! Take care Zo xx 43

butlersabroad said...

I love your use of plumbing pipe over your desk for overhead lights! That's the kind of solution my husband would come up with! That's a great "warts and all" desk, nothing to be ashamed of, more for us to look at frankly! Love the canvas it's so happy looking, I would put "SMILE" on it cause that's what I did when I saw it.

Hugs

Welcome too btw.

Shoshi said...

Hi Lori, and a warm welcome to WOYWW (how's that for alliteration lol!!) - warning (another W!) it's highly addictive... Your desk is wonderful, dirty paint water and all. Dirty paint water is definitely in the spirit of WOYWW! Your canvas looks beautiful and the only word I can think of is "Welcome"!

Thank you for visiting my blog. Zentangles are such fun, aren't they. My album is coming along nicely, and soon I shall decorate the cover.

Happy WOYWW and have a great week,

Jaki Morris said...

How about 'If friends were flowers, I'd pick you' ?

You will get used to taking photos of a mess or nothing at all! Sometimes I take a picture of an empty table, sometimes with a note on it but I like to take part.

Enjoy your trip around the world

Jaki, thanks for stopping by my blog

Laura said...

Hiya Lori,

Hi Lori - welcome to WOYWW and thank you for stopping by my blog. I can understand what you mean about it being hard to "bare all" - showing off your messy desk is a little bit like being caught with your pants down!

Laurart said...

Hi Lori! Welcome to WOYWW. Never clean your desk before Wednesday...we want to see the mess!!! ;o) I cringe sometimes at the state of my desk and then the picture goes up and I am full of apologies for how messy it is and most of the people just say "Call THAT a mess? - That is sooo not a mess"! I love the canvas btw! Really beautiful. It is great to meet another painter. I look forward to seeing more paintings. Love from Laura #55 xxx

Buttons said...

Hi Lori and a hearty warm welcome to WOYWW!! Your desk is perfect, as is your canvas. It got me singing a line from Eidelwiess (Sound of Music) - 'Bloom and grow forever' - I won't sing it and spoil the song. Plenty of suggestions in previous comments too I see. Here's hoping they help. See you again soon, hugs Jenny #35

lisa said...

Welcome to the wonderful world of WOYWW, Lori, you'll be addicted now.
Well done for sharing your desk and resisting the temptation to tidy it. We love mess here. It shows creativity is happening and it certainly is judging by that lovely looking canvas.

Hi Lori, thanks for the visit and it was MY first WOYWW...I had to clean up a good bit to just be able to not embarrass myself with all the mess I had. (and it was still pretty messy!) I follow Sandee (think it's the same one!) too. I'll join your blog, and be happy to have you as a follower too, if you should be so inclined. Today is a quick visit to your blog, but I'll be bacckkkk! Your space looked pretty tidy to me.... I know the urge to clean before you let somebody else visit! Hugs

Sandy Leigh said...

Hi Lori! So glad you've joined WOYWW! And, so glad you didn't clean your desk--it's more fun to see the process. Your flower canvas is absolutely lovely. Maybe you can do a saying with the word "bloom" or "grow" or something on being natural. I'm sure whatever you do will be wonderful! Welcome! Happy WOYWW! Sandy Leigh #104

Great canvas (loved the With My Whole Heart post as well). I leave dirty water on my desk all the time. I consider it a success if I remember to put the brush in the water....It looks good to me. Welcome to WOYWW...it's tons of fun and actually pretty grounding. Appreciate your parting words in your posts!! Have a great week.

Happy Belated WOYWW and welcome to this very friendly community. Wow, you have loads of comments! Took me ages to scroll down to the bottom. The only words that come to mind for your canvas are "Every Flower is a Soul Blossoming in Nature" Gerard De Nerval. Go to a site called 'BrainyQuote' - it is so useful. Ali x #40 ps Thank you for following my blog, I will do the same.

It looks like you have a nice sturdy table to work on. While I do love my rolltop desk, sometimes I long for a big flat surface. Wow! You have lots of fun paints and good stuff on desk. I love how the canvas is coming along. It does need a quote down the right side. I think every word in its own block if that makes sense. I'm not sure what quote though. Welcome to WOYWW and thanks for the visit!

Dainty Diva said...

I'm late with WOYWW but none the less here I am. Love to zoom up close and see what goodies you have and I need more of those paints you have super to work with. See you next wk. Thanks for the info on my post. #147

Julia Dunnit said...

Ooh Lori your desk is delicious! Welcome to WOYWW, our Sandee -she's pretty irresistible, huh! Im pleased that your husband prevented too much tidying..and believe me, being a WOYWWer doesnt make you tidier, no sir! The dirty paint water is good.....its when it's evaporated that you know you've left it too long really...or worse, when you pick it up to drink from it by mistake! LOVE the canvas, its so fresh...will look forward to seeing what you did with some text...

Carole Z said...

HI Lori, your desk looks fab...such a gorgeous canvas and it's not messy compared to mine! Thanks for visiting and following my blog too, Carole Z #121

Oh love the canvas! The Earth laughs in flowers came to my mind when I saw it! Your desk isn't messy by any means, I've seen messy, I've been messy that isn't it lol!

MaggieC said...

Great to see another new member in the happy Wednesday band. If you thing your desk is messy, you clearly have not looked at mine this week. anyway, we like messy, there is more to see and drool over as Shaz Silverwolf said (she is my daughter's mother in law, by the way). I did enjoy looking round your desk, and will be back again in the near future. xx Maggie #32

RosA said...

Hi Lori,
Thanks for dropping by and welcome to WOYWW! It can be quite addictive but Sandee has probably already told you that. Nothing wrong with your desk, looks perfectly ok to me! Did you like my washi tape? I haven't got enough :) yet. Love that stuff!

Angela Coles said...

welcome to WOYWW Lori. Lovely to meet you.
Thank you for your lovely comment on my blog. Your desk looks nice and you have quiet a few things I don't have.

your painting is incredible. You've probably got a quote for it by now, but if you haven't let me know and I'll point you to some great ones.

Welcome to WOYWW! And thanks for stopping by my desk already and leaving me a sweet comment...I'm glad to hear you are already friends with Sandee, she is such a sweetie! I know how tempting it is to clean your desk, sometimes I clean mine but it does end up rather boring then. Mostly I just throw away the used tissues and then snap away! lol Hope you enjoy being a WOYWW participant. :) Deeyll #142

Welcome to WOYWW! It is so addictive! Sorry I am so late getting around but life definitely reared its head and got in my way! Hope your week has gone well and you have been able to do some crafting. Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment. Vickie #31

Your desk hardly looks messy at all. You have such a nice array of toys (art related) to play with. Lots of fun here...*smiles* Norma

ha, ha do you really think we worry about messy or tidy we are a group of "extreme snoopers" so welcome to WOYWW and enjoy the fun! I was told to behave ( Sandee) so I will try to be good!
Lots of hugs,
