A canvas, a doll, a book, and a mess - WOYWW # 340

Hello Fellow Deskers and Friends :)

Let us get the question over with..what is a desker? Find why and how HERE.
So here is another edition of what I have been up to lately. With the holiday present making and trying to video everything I make for Youtube people who keep subscribing and commenting (I love you people!) I have been busy. Of course I should be done with presents that need to go in the mail by now..but I am not. I hear that December 14th is the last day to mail for Christmas...guess I am shooting for that date!!! So, for inquiring minds..here is my mess of a desk...


You can see the remains of the last few days projects and the planning for the next. On the left is the tray of beads and tools I used in my Angel art doll ornament project...still not put away! She has to go in the mail TODAY...and well there is grocery shopping and my car needs gas too..so I guess there will be a trip.

On the right side of the photo is a stack of my color boxes. These are too lovely to throw away scraps of papers that I sort into color coordinated boxes for my collage. I used those yesterday in my very first Creative Arts Collaboration event on Youtube. I made a skater girl canvas which goes live today at 8:00 AM my time. If you don't know about these events...it is like a art show with how to videos on Youtube. Some of the people who create artistic content thought they should get more notice..so they banded together and have a monthly art event. I joined up last month and so here I am in the event this month :) How does it work? You just go over to Youtube and type in the hashtag #LoveWinterArt in the search bar and you get tons of creative people making creative things on video..very cool!

In the center of the desk is a unassuming looking cocoa packet box. Well that is the future art journal I am making today (hopefully I have time after shopping and gas and the post office!) I will be covering it with Gelli prints and sewing in signatures made of watercolor paper. It is to be one of those gifts I have been talking about making :)

I hope everyone is having a merry season with their creating! Off to visit some desks now..
<3 Shel

  1. You've been very busy again, Shel. Love the angel doll and the skater girl. Happy grocery shopping! I order mine online these days - it frees up a couple of hours each week and it's cheaper to pay for delivery than it is to drive there. Plus, I hate driving. Have a great week! zsuzsa #30
