Happy Wednesday, everyone!  If you’re wondering why I’m sharing a photo of my busy/messy workdesk, well, it’s What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday, the day many of us share a peek into our creative worlds and what we’re up to.  Join us over at Julia’s if you want, it’s always interesting and frequently inspirational.

2014 04 30 woyww claying & beading

On my workdesk today is quite  a jumble because, as the post title indicates, I’m working on many different things.

The sewing bit isn’t pictured, but my order of 11 yards of fabric arrived from Fabric.com today so I need to get started on those six pairs of pants.  And I’m nearly done with the memory quilt, photos to come soon on that.

Towards the right side is my set up to begin working on the Evangelina Ring, a class from CraftArtEdu.

It’s a rather fascinating, funky thing, made of polymer clay and woven wire, two of my favorite media combined, so I’m looking forward to trying it.

In the upper left is a pile of ingredients for a sample for a class I’ll be teaching at Joann’s this summer. I’ll NOT be using neon pink beads, though, but a tropical feeling combo of blue & green.  I thought it was a rather interesting concept to use links of chain as spacers, though.

The rest of the stuff is from my local A.C. Moore which is going out of business. While I’m sad about that, I was happy to get the drill punch for $6 instead of its usual $18.  🙂

Oh, and a few weeks ago one of you gals recommended Diana Galbaldon’s Outlander. Wow, what a great story. That’s what’s on the mp3 player in the lower right, and I’m dying to get back to it. So I’ll leave you to your own projects and desk hopping.

Happy creating!

    1. Yes, it is meant to be worn on the hand, though I’m guessing it will catch on anything and everything one passes by: clothing, small children, car doors…

    1. Hi Donna,

      The ring pictured with the purple flowers isn’t mine, it’s the class sample.

      Yes, neons are back big time. I’m not sure that I love ’em, didn’t care much for them first time around in the ’80s, lol.

    1. Hi Chris,

      I think getting bored is the reason I have such a variety of projects. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Such a variety of projects going on, you are one really busy lady, like Regina said. Happy crafting and have a great week, thanks for sharing.

    Happy WOYWW

    1. You know, I thought I was busy when my kids where here and I was homeschooling them. I’ve got MUCH, MUCH more to fit into every day now than I ever did then.

  2. What an interesting desk, Sandy, and what amazing things you are creating. I love the polymer clay beads and things you’ve made. So unusual and different!

    Happy WOYWW,

    1. Thanks for coming by, Shoshi, glad you find it interesting. I don’t think your desk is boring at all, btw. I love how full yet organized & tidy it is.

      1. Aww thanks, Sandy! Thanks for your visit, and I’m glad you like my mini-album so far. The faux leather is amazing to do, and so realistic!


  3. Hi Sandy, thanks for stopping by at mine. Your table is very interesting, I especially love the stand with all your tools on. Happy crafting, Angela x 49

  4. Hi Sandy. Yes it was your blog that made me buy that pattern. Thank you so much. I now realise why it was so expensive when I had it, it had only just released. It is now in the UK! Ho Hum! I just know I will love it. I recognise your blog.
    Lovely makes on your desk today. I have some clay but like alot of other things, I don’t get much chance to play. Work gets in the way!

  5. Hello Sandy. What a great collection of things over your desk. Like you, I love having more than one thing on the go at the time – like having one book to read upstairs and one down, as well!!!
    Thanks for the visit. Ok, so Ysbyty Glan Clwyd is the name of the hospital – it’s pronounced usbutty glan clueid. In Welsh, the letter y is a vowel. Ysbyty means hospital, Clwyd is the county name, and glan – erm… should know and have forgotten… oops!! There you are – your first bit of Welsh!!
    Take care.
