It's Wednesday again! & so it's time I hang my head & blush! as I show you whats on my Wednesday washer....... one day it will be my desk!

Nothing much really! I'm waiting for some backgrounds to dry.............

.......... and while they are drying! Time for a little doodling......

It's not quite finished..... still a big gap in the middle to fill in! It's going to be so handy taking this pad with me to the hospital as it will easily fit into my bag so I won't mind if my appointment isn't on time for once!!

In true Blue Peter fashion!
Here's one I finished earlier. I didn't realise how addictive these could be!

Ooops! I had no idea my black fine liner pen wasn't waterproof. :(

I can't do a full swing as I craft in the kitchen. Here is a box that currently lives on top of the fridge freezer away from eager little eyes & hands!!!

Boy! is this box heavy to keep lifting down!
I'm hoping to rehouse everything shortly & can't wait!!

Oooh I nearly forgot to show you inside my butty box this week! After hopping over to Linda at A Crafting Journey & having a lovely nosy around! I spotted an idea that would solve my problem of never being able to find the ink pad I'm looking for without having to get all the ink pads out!

Da daa!

I printed out some labels & inked them so I can see which is which at a glance. Thank You Linda.xx

If you would like to find out more about What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday! pop over to Julia's fabby blog to find out more.

Thanks for calling by & double Thanks.xx if you get chance to leave me a comment. I am hoping to visit lots of lovely workdesks tonight when I get the boys to bed. I feel very bad for not getting round to everyone last week. Sorry.xx

Enjoy the rest of the day. Love Gez.xx


  1. Hi Gez,
    I'm very impressed by your doodling.

  2. Love your ink storage and your doodling is really impressive.
    A x

  3. I agree, the doodling is great.

  4. OOOOOOH! I was really worried about blogging my doodling & thought everyone would think it was silly! Thank You.XXX

  5. I used to have my crafting bit all around the house, and crafted on the dinning table.
    Then daughter moved out, and i have a craft room, yippee.
    Told her she cant come back not giving it up no way

  6. Gez - the doodling is a great idea and the results are really good - you should be proud to display, we're in it with you. I wish I could magic you a craftroom so you could unleash your talent to the fullest potential - not that you don't do bad from the top of your washer!!! But I think you have so much more to give :O)

    Love looking in your lunchbox and you've done a great job with the inks. My mum hand wrote mine so saved me a job, she also inked the colours on too - what great tips we pick up from each other and WOYWW!!!! I LOVE IT.

    Big hugs

    I'll be doing that next time with himself!
