WOYWW #591

I'm sad to say that I haven't joined in with the workdesk fun for a long, long time, but today I thought I'd try to remedy that as my desk is really tidy (for me)!
It contains the detritus from a few days' play.
I see I left the top off my take away box which contains my Lawn Fawn shammy, it has obviously dried out, so a trip along to the bathroom to refresh that is called for. Speaking of bathroom, I see a toilet roll too... that's not there for emergencies, but I was trying my hand at papercasting... there is a little square there which was my first attempt, but I have just received a package with some plasticine so I'll be trying a slightly different technique incorporating that... if I can get it right.
The upright  magnetic sheet at the back is where I throw dies that have recently been in use or ones which I use quite frequently. Sad to say some unintentionally stay there for quite a while.
If anyone wonders what anything is or is for... just ask.
Have a great day and stay safe everyone!
Oops!  I forgot to link back to the lovely Julia.... how remiss of me here it is!
Sorry Julia!



  1. I like the idea of the magnetic sheet Chrissie. Have fun with the paper casting. Stay safe and happy WOYWW. Sarah #5

  2. Hiya Chrissie, lovely to see you back on the desks! Didn't we meet up at a craft show a few years back, I seem to recall that Julia had dragged me along, lol!! Only kidding, I quite enjoy papercrafting shows despite not doing much myself. My absolute favourite bit of your desk is the magnetic sheet! Are you an overarm or underarm chucker? I seem to remember doing the same thing with spaghetti and the wall!!

    1. Hi Jan ... we met for lunch in Winchester with Julia... many moons ago now, but it was fun... didn’t you also pop to see Darnell in her hotel on Salisbury when I popped over to take some stuff of hers which we’d left in the wrong car when I took her over!
      Happy days!

  3. So this is where the magic happens! I always enjoy seeing where other crafters work, Jo x

  4. Hi Chrissie, first off I spot one of my beloved Adirondack pads! I love them so much, when I heard they were being discontinued I bought a reinker for every one! Great idea with the magnetic sheet, laughing at Jans comment. Stay safe, Have a lovely week, Hugs, Shaz X #6.

  5. Hi Chrissie. Good to see you today. I like the idea of the magnetic sheet - brilliant. I confess that, like Jan, my first thought was how do you throw the dies? Do you stand back from the table and take aim, or simply sit there and fling?
    I seem, according to all the comments left on my post today, to have caused a bit of a stir regarding brushos... everyone is now, seemingly, dashing to unearth their box in the cupboard!
    Take care. God bless.

  6. I love that magnetic sheet, what a good idea . Helen #3

  7. This looks tidy to me......! I love your magnetic board idea - I may have to copy that - I have a few laying around I have no clue where from! I see you've been playing with alcohol inks - would love to see what you create..... xx

  8. Chrissie, welcome back! You and I have something in common! It's been almost 2 years since I have participated! WOW, right!? Last week was my springboard, so I hope I can manage to stay up to date!! LOL I love your magnetic board idea! How cool! That is a must try for sure!! Have a great week and blessings to you! :) Felicia, #26

  9. Happy WOYWW and welcome back. I only have a very small collection of dies, so do put them away after use (got a folder with magnetic sheets in). However, I love your 'chucking board'! Ali x #8

  10. Hi Chrissie, lovely to meet you here I don't think our paths have crossed @ WoywW before. Loving the idea of the magnetic sheet, when i'm in die cutting mode I could do with a room wallpapered in magnetic sheeting hee hee! I'm trying to peep closer to see what you are making today, hope you will share very soon.
    Stay safe & Happy WoywW Tracey #7

  11. That's a great way to store the dies that you are using. Wishing you a happy week and a very creative woyww, Angela x12x

  12. Great magnetic sheet to keep those wee dies from getting lost before putting away ~ I see bits of started projects about which is wonderful ~ Blessings on your week! Karen#32

  13. That magnetic sheet looks amazing! Never heard of papercasting before so I will be interested to see what it is all about. Happy belated WOYWW. Take care and stay safe. With love & God Bless, Caro xxx (#14)

  14. Wow those coloured leaf sprigs look amazing! Please share the final card with us. Dying to see! Sorry about getting round so late x

  15. Your magnetic board looks amazing with all the dies on it. You could say, "the die is cast" lol! I've never tried paper casting but that looks really fun.

    Happy belated WOYWW,
