Here's a new one for me WOYWW (what's on your worktable wednesday) - and maybe not the best time to start since everything is SUCH a mess.  But I guess that's the point - what's the reality of your work space?  Right now, all of mine are a disaster.  In my 'office' I do all the computer stuff, digital art, etc. so have my reference books nearby.  I also have a watercolor painting table set up next to a window though I haven't used it in a while and it's gathering stacks of other projects.

Then, upstairs I have a spare bedroom that has become my workroom.  OMG, looking at it through the camera's eye really shows the mess it's in.  I've not been in there creating, just dumping stuff from other parts of the house as I decorate for the holidays.  This will take some serious time to restore to order.....  So without further ado, here's my spaces on this cloudy Seattle morning.

Yikes - how do I find anything in here???

What's your your work table/bench/desk/surface today?  I just finished my Zentangle entry for the week (see it in front of my keyboard) and got it posted. That's the only active project at this moment - tomorrow, who knows?

Linking to WOYWW and you can take a little vicarious trip inside other work rooms - it's a little voyeuristic, but all in good fun!  {ED: to show you how popular this prompt is, I'm in at #100!)


  1. Welcome to WOYWW Terrie, good to have your desk to nosey around on. Do not be alarmed...your desk/rom is as nothing when I'm in full flow and worse when I'm just dumping stuff in there...I don't do digi so will never have a tidy computer to brag of. Happy to see you look after your hands - am a huge user of hand cream, and proud of it!! Willbe back on a less manic day to brwose your blog, how interesting you are.

  2. Your working space doesn't look that bad, I couldn't show a picture of mine! Valerie

  3. I am delighted to see a real "as is" work space :) well real being one that looks like mine! I haven't been quite brave enough to be real...

  4. It's wonderful to see your space Terrie! It looks great, I love the hanging wire you have on the wall. Fantastic. Lucky you to be in Seattle.

    Happy WOYWW.

    Also thanks for the visit earlier in the week, your comment is much appreciated. xx

    "it's a little voyeuristic"...yeah i guess it is, never really thought about it that way but I do enjoy peeking into other people's rooms....oh geez...I'm a voyeur now?

  6. Welcome Terrie. Isn't it freeing to share our messes? And yes. We are all voyeurs, so here's to peeking in on you often...I hope you will like Wednesdays as much as I do! I don't always comment, but I do always enjoy what everyone is doing....

  7. Hi there and thanks for the peek into your creative zone. It looks like there is loads going on so thanks for sharing. Hope you have a brilliant week and have plenty of creative time! Welcome to the addictive world of WOYWW

  8. Welcome to WOYWW - be warned, it's addictive...but fun!! I love the fact that we can have a nosey at folks' stuff all over the world. And boy, are there some talented people out there! Your 'mess' isn't that bad, shows you enjoy your crafting!!
    Hugs, LLJ #39 xx

  9. This makes me feel right at home :-)
    BTW, are those cinnamon sticks on your desk?
    The mind boggles.

  10. Messy desks are creative desks!!!!

  11. Terrie, I had to laugh at your voyeur remark. Welcome to WOYWW. I am sure you will love it here. Sorry I'm late, but I was busy crafting outside yesterday, as today it turned colder than cold. It's in the 20s F as I type. Like me, you have a lot of spaces. Aren't we just the luckiest? Happy belated WOYWW from #6 now.

  12. What a fun party! Your work space is neat next to mine!
    I HOPE to be able to start back on my tangles this week, now that all of the madness is stopped. Of course, there will be more madness coming with the holidays right around the corner!!! ugh. I miss tangling!!! And I miss chatting with you and seeing your amazing tangles!! You are awesome!

  13. Hi Terrie, and a warm welcome to WOYWW, which I warn you is highly addictive. It attracts all the nosiest people on the Internet, but none of us are ashamed to show our own messes as long as we can see everybody else's!!! You've got a great working space there, with lots of light by the looks of it, even if you do live in one of the wettest parts of the USA!! (I live in one of the wettest parts of the UK so I know how you feel!) Happy belated WOYWW, Shoshi #61

  14. Hi and welcome to WOYWW! (a bit late!) You will find it VERY addict!! Love all your doodlings
    Have a creative week
