WOYWW 142 - this is not the desk you are looking for.....

Hello there!

Sorry, couldn't resist the urge to warp one of the most famous movie quotes of all time... You see, this week, my desk isn't quite how I thought it would be.

Aliens have moved in.

Namely of variety.

I give you exhibit A:

Now, I hasten to add that I am not anti-pink, it's just not me.  I'm more of a purple girl, myself.  But Lil' Miss B is a hot pink girlie, especially when teamed with black and white (and especially with skull and crossbones with hot pink bows...think Pink Cookie) and thus this week's desk is courtesy of Lil' Miss B's Jewellery Design Studio.  With supplies by Morti.  To be fair, she's just after some earrings to match her Avril Lavigne bracelet....

.... which I am VERY sorry to say I wasn't responsible for (not enough Christmas hours in a day, y'know?) but which I have referred to recently as having been broken.  Well, I didn't end up contacting the lady who made it - instead I attached a lobster claw clasp, figuring that for her tender years, it would probably be up to little more punishment.  Thinking about it, you can't tell from the photo above why it's an Avril Lavigne bracelet - it has lots of tiny pictures of her dotted around it.  And Lil Miss B being an AL junkie..... suffice to say she loves it.

No siree, this week I had hoped that my desk would be tidy, and it would have some arty farty interesting work on it.  But no.

So instead, witness Exhibit B.  For some reason I feel moved to show you the states of under and beside my desk.  Yup.  The previously tidy surface is belying What Lies Beneath (ooh, another film reference, go me!) and as you can see, I'm also a push it back, push it to the side, push it under girl.  Ho hum.

I don't think I've shown this side of the room before... I can honestly say I am not responsible for all the stuff on the shelves!  At least, oooh, one or two boxes belong to the family, like the big RUB on top, which is filled with envelopes of varying sizes for the domestic use of.

I have done a little crafting this week.  It was my Goddaughter's 15th birthday on Monday, so I made and sent this card to her.  I think she liked it - I did one similar last year with purples, and the figure was sitting down.  I love Kenny K's digi stamps.

Bless me, nearly forgetting myself.  In case you've arrived here from some distant planet, or indeed QVC (nudge nudge, wink wink), you're probably wondering why I'm flashing my stash.  And my desk.  Etc.  Well, head over to Dunnit Dimensions and all will be revealed.

Meanwhile, from me and Wiggy here - catch you on the bloghop!

I will forgive you the pinkies :D
Also I am a "Push it under... and push it there and here" -girl. That´s why you see only close-ups from my craft room :*)
Have a nice day!

'Ere, that under desk shot has just shattered me. I thought you two had OCD about tidiness and now I see signs of normal-ness. Althoughm you could be accused of having a 'thing' for boxes!! Didn't know A Lavigne was still in the consciousness, but I guess mine has grown out of the full on teen thing..I like the pink on your desk, however alien!!

HeARTworks said...

Hi Morti, I must say the aliens look very promising, but I happen to like pink myself! I also like a busy crafty desk! Show us the bracelet when it's fixed, do! Patsy from

I was SO glad DD moved on from Barbie pink :) but even in pink it's all still quite pretty. And tee hee - I was up watching QVC last night when I posted. On 16 x speed, but still....

Nice rework on the bracelet. It is darling. Like you, pink is not my color. Are you a box freak? Love the bookcase shot. Happy WOYWW from #9.

Neet said...

Love that card you did for your God daughter. Those are brill images - must investigate.
I am reminded now that I too broke a bracelet whilst on holiday and need to fix it myself rather than send it away, pay the earth and have to wait weeks for its return.
I'm not pink but I quite like what you have on your desk - must be changing.
Hugs and thanks for sharing - Neet 33 xx

Love that pink beady stuff. Your room looks pretty full - a bit like mine!!!

Princess Judy Palmer said...

I'm not too much on pink myself, but if you must play with it, then hot pink is the way to go! How nice of you to fix up the bracelet and make earrings to match! Thanks for sharing all the different parts of your workdesk. I don't really have any under and to the side or over there to push things to anymore....

Spyder said...

Lisa-Jane said...

I'm a recent convert to pink having been anti-pink all my life because of my red hair! I love the shot of the beads on your desk - its so pretty. And yay us getting a mention on QVC huh?!

when i was beading i loved those little flower beads - in all colors. hmmm, i may still have a small stash of them somewhere.

what a sweetie to fix the bracelet and to make earrings to go along with it.

your card is great - whoever the birthday girl is i'm sure she'll love it.,


JoZart Designs said...

Great to confess the true state of affairs. I love the state you are in as it's more interesting then tidy neat and boring. I too am a purple person!! Well done kindred spirit.
Thanks for the snoop,
JoZarty x

karen said...

Great card you have made! And it was very brave of you to show us around and under your desk! Your space looks so inviting and I would love to have a few hours of play there!
Thanks for visiting me earlier!

Lovely work, interesting desk. Very well organised Morti. I'm interested in the fellow hanging around with the tweezers but I do like Garou the best. Very sexy.
