WOYWW: Always a mess!

It's the story of my life.  I live in an environment of barely-controlled chaos, probably just like you.  I have this constant need to be organized which is constantly warring with my desire to not waste time putting stuff away.  It's a conundrum.

Here's what's on my workdesk this week!  For more info about WOYWW, click here!


Wednesday is my design team day on the Artistcellar blog, so this is the remnant of that.  You can go there for a walkthrough if you're interested.  That paper hiding under the skull pouch is my to-do list, which has grown exponentially just in the last 10 minutes, I swear.  The nasty-looking orange mug is actually my brush-cleaning dish, which means I have to keep my coffee/tea FAR AWAY FROM THERE.

Now I have go clean that mess so that I can record a video.  No rest for the wicked.  

Happy Wednesday! xo!

    1. Welcome back to the fray, Annette! I have only done about three of them, but I love the snoop :D

      Thank you so much! I am a creature of habit, so, as long as I keep my cup over on one side and the water on the other, I'm usually okay. Unless I decide to move my cup, which I have done repeatedly.. haha

  12. Every time I see that skull pouch, I die a tiny bit on the inside because I want to pet it and love it and call it George.

    That spread for ArtistCellar. Fuggedaboutdit. SO GOOD!

    Also, I love how last week's 50 Canvases project is peeking out from behind that stencil. Hee!
