What's On Your Workbench Wednesday (WOYWW)

It's Wednesday again and here I am playing in What's On Your Workbench Wednesday or WOYWW. That means it's time to blog surf around the World and have a peak at what art others are doing on their desks, benches, laps and even floors LOL. If you want to find out about this or join in go to Julia's blog here

On my own desk as usual there is a mix of paper crafts and hand made jewellery. On Tuesdays I share an old paper crafts tip or technique so often that project is still on my desk Wednesday as is the case this week. I did complete my etched copper puffy steampunk heart which I'll put an image of in this post too. Now I am slowly creating a few other necklaces...my right shoulder, hip and knee are still causing pain so that is why I said "slowly". So here are some shots of the desk....



"The Aviators Assistant" etched, puffy, steampunk heart necklace.


At rear left on my desk are some cards. I was looking for something yesterday to make a star card and decided to try a Christmas themed one. Instructions for the star card are below this post here. While looking I came across some other past Christmas cards and pulled them out. I'm hoping they inspire me to get making some early for this year before I need to pack up my art supplies for our ? move in coming months to north Queensland. I think the fairy one in the middle is what I shall settle with as I can stamp and colour her in while watching Tv in short spurts so as not to hurt my right shoulder.


This is what is on the middle of my desk


At the right on my desk is an etched house shaped necklace almost finished and my steampunk flying bicycle that now just needs a chain attached.


My 2 fur babies have snuck into the art room again. Scoot is sound asleep on my chair and naughty Minty has scampered up onto the spare bed aaarrrggg!



Big news for me in that my eldest daughter and her fiance are to become parents in January! We are all excited and this will be our first grandchild. Finally a baby to cuddle and give back LOL. Off to suss out some desks :o). Then I want to see if I can find out how to make a shop button for my blog...html is weird looking and I am not sure I'll work that one out but I'll try!!
hugs

So where do I begin??? Congrats on the Gramma title. Being a Gramma is the best job in the world. Both of my girls have January B'days. I love all of your art work you have going on. I love the whole steampunk vibe. Though I have never tried my hand at it. The fairy is gorgeous. I'm also really loving the star next to the fairy as well. The heart necklace is awesome, I can gush on about all your trinkets for a bit. FUN…FUN…FUN!!!! Your furry friends are precious too. If Minty weren't being naughty, would he/she?? be as cute? That face is precious. OK, I've rambled long enough. Have a great week. Congrats again on the new baby!!! (((HUGS)))

This is such a great post! Thanks for stopping by last time and sharing my enthusiasm for Cafe Retro Art stuff! I love the finished heart and I see a wonderful little creation on your desk with a tiny frozen Charlotte in it. I love these and would like to do something with one in soon! Congrats on the new addition to the family! I can't imagine being a grandma, as my two have no desire to settle down yet. You must be so excited. Have a lovely week. I am at http://magpieheaven.blogspot.com/2013/07/woyww-top-secret.html if Julia's link does not appear, but I'm sure it will later. Julie Ann xx

I am in love with your desk. I mean *really*! Stunning Steampunk jewellery!

Anne said...

Lovely necklace and really like the star card. Tempted to have a go at the card.
Congratulations on being a Grandma in waiting. I have 4 four grandchildren and love being a Grandma. Had my two grandsons for a few days last week. Great fun and you get to give hem back!!!! Happy WOYWW Anne x #24

Bernice said...

The star card looks complicated, but very effective. Why is it that cats seem to prefer to sit on the beds and chairs, instead of their own perfectly comfortable and cosy beds?!

Such wonderful goodies on your desk and those little furballs look quite at home. Congrats on the exciting news and I hope all goes well with the planned move. I do forget how back this country really is but at least you will be on the East coast. Must come back and check out your tutorials, the cards both look great.

Celeste said...

Scoot is so cute and mischievous. Typical JR.
Congrats on the grandparent news. So exciting for you.

voodoo vixen said...

Hi Annette, love how that heart has turned out and my weakness for old fashioned bicycles says that is a winner too! Congrats on the forthcoming Granny title too! Hope the shoulder holds out for you, the moving of heavy boxes will take its toll, let me tell you! LOL Annette #1 for the first time in 4 years!

artatag said...

I love, love, love the things you make! Awesome! And so are your furry friends!

Hi Annette-
I always love visiting your desk because it's always a mixture of goodies. The steampunk puffy heart necklace is amazing....omg. And the bicycle? Too, too cool. Sorry to hear about the soreness...it sure does make those days we feel good- GREAT!! Exciting news about the grand baby...we have a few years to go before we get to that, but I just know it's going to be fun. Thanks for stopping by the Fun Room. Good luck with figuring out the new computer stuff. (yuck). Sara

Hi Annette! First off, congrats on the upcoming arrival! What great news!!! I love the fur babies all near you, mine are too and if you hop over to my blog you can see where my dog has cushioned herself up at :) I LOVE your jewelry! And the fairy card is so cute. I hope you are feeling better very soon. Pain really causes a delay in creating. My mind goes so much faster than my body can go...so frustrating! Happy WOYWW and enjoy the rest of the week!
