Whats on Your Workdesk Wednesday, 215

To read more about this feature, and maybe have a nosey at other workdesks around the world, see here

Real treat for you this week, I had a tidy up!  It does not happen often, so dont get used to it...
..and I stepped back a bit so you could see the rest of it, satisfied that it did not look tidy even after I had made such a valiant effort, I stepped back a bit further so you can see the rest of the mess, this is me being organised.
Its a bit hot for us here in the UK just now, and had been far too hot to work in here so I thought I would go mad and tidy, I even tried to get the paint off my lovely desk, really must get another craft mat for this side, I do have one on the other side (but lets not go there, thats not tidy).  It was so hot last week I visited most of your desks, not enough  hours to comment on them all but did visit - not sure I will manage them all this week but will do my best.  Thank you to everyone who stops by here and comments, much appreciated and always nice to see you.
As my desk was so tidy it was quite inviting, so I got the gelato's out and had a go at a face, usually mixed media but I just used gelato's on this occasion for a change, getting better and was fun to do.
Oooh, for anyone who visited last week - I won the Heartsong Challenge with my canvas, and am awaiting a lovely prize of Deco Art paints soon, hurray!!!!


  1. My eyes are drawn to the dog!! What is he wearing? He's on a bike!! Happy WOYWW!!


  2. Well done on your win! I must back track and see what you used.
    Do I spy Gelatos? Love them.
    Have a great day despite the heat which I gather you do not like. Not to worry, soon be time for that coat.
    Thanks for visiting me - Hugs, Neet 14 xx

  3. She is beautiful! I love that you draw with the gelatos. I have only used them for stamping, and fun backgrounds as I am not able to draw. Congrats on your win, that is awesome. We are having a heatwave here in NYC, and I am miserable. Had to buy a portable a/c for my stamp room as I did nothing in there for over a week due to the heat. 5 more days they are saying! Thanks for the visit today! Winnie#85

  4. Your drawing is great, we are just learning to draw faces and are most impressed.

    Thanks for visiting the bears already today.

  5. Congrats on you win, Linda,

    and enjoy your DecoArts paints!!!! I love to work with them too ;)
    Love your tidied up workdesk too ;)

  9. Congratulations on winning!!!! YAY!!!! I love your new face and that beautiful hair. The more I look at tidy spaces with awesome creations, the more I realize I am just a mess :) I am so happy for you Lynda! Hope we get to see the goodies when they arrive. Rasz #112

  11. Greetings from Alaska-
    Great face...I think they are so hard to draw. And I think you did a commendable job of tidying up. Beacause we all know it lasts about 5 mintues once we get going! Hope the weather breaks soon for you. Thanks for stopping by the Fun Room.

  12. Forgot to say I just love the pix of your dog...!!!

  13. Hi Lynda
    Ok, the big question is why do you have a picture of a dog on a motor bike on your desk. Your desk looks very tidy to me ... this hot weather makes us do crazy things doesn't it
    have a good week and enjoy the hot weather

  14. Well congrats for winning,I think use crafters have to stop apologizing for our desk, I don't know how we can create with all our stuff and have it tidy, I know some ladies do I don't know how though LOL. Anywho I do admire anyone who can draw and yours is lovely, she has the prettiest blue eyes. I think you need a lovely piece of glass to go on your desk, it's the answer, clean up is a breeze. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful week. Dianne #94

  15. I love my Gelatos and your drawing with them is just fabulous. You look like you have a wonderful work space. Congrats on your Win and I can't wait to see something created with your prize. Happy WOYWW! Danie #34

  16. I love your drawing, the colours are perfect. Congrats on your win. If you're like me the clean up only lasts for five minutes and then it's back to normal, but I think messy is better, more creative.
    Have a great week.

  17. Your desk does look tidy! And you did a wonderful job on the face!! Using Gelatos is so fun isn't it?

  18. Love your work! And isn't having a "more" tidy desk fun? I confess, I have 3 work surfaces, so I can move my creative messes around. I have MY table, my stamping table, and my guest table. When there aren't any guests, I use it all up! Have a great week!

  19. love your desk lots of craftyness going on, thanks for the snoop

    Happy WOYWW

  21. Late appearing, but congrats on the win for your lovely canvas! Annette #8

  22. Good work on the tidying - I think its even too hot to do that! Love the photo of the dog on a motorbike!

  23. I too was drawn to the dog cool! Love the motorcycling pooch! Leather jacket, dew rag and all! Have to show this to my fella, as you may or may not know, we ride on his Harley. Nice job tidying, wanna come over and help me? :) Happy WOYWW! Nan G #104

  24. Wow! You are a very talented artist..I couldn't draw to save myself!! lol!! I too love the dog pic, he looks very cool in his jacket. Thanks for popping over to Australia (where it's winter here if you can call it that) to check my desk out. Vikki #95

  25. Thank you for a peek at your desk - it's far too hot to tidy, so I think my desk will definitely get messier. Congratulations on your win. #74

  26. Thanks All, Dawn - you neeeeeeeeeeeed gelatos.

    The dog in the picture was identical to my soul dog Vicky, she was quite a character so the picture was ideal as a memory of her.

    Thank you so much for your visits to my messy area:)

  27. Happy Belated WOYWW, Lynda! I love that you took advantage of the heat to have a tidy up and I love the face you made from just gelatos! Congratulations on your HSC win, too!!

    Thank you for visiting me earlier! Have a wonderful week! Darnell #20

  28. Love the drawing of the girl and her gorgeous blue hair
