Today marks the eight anniversary of “What’s On Your Workdesk, Wednesday?” (or in short “WOYWW.”) Congratulations go to Julia Dunnit, our lovely hostess who started this weekly event, not knowing that it would attrack so many ‘deskers’ every week and would grow out to be so huge… Thank you sweetie, for bringing us together every week and for faithfully and trustworthy keeping the fun going without ever skipping a blogpost or backing out!
What is this weekly event is all about?
Plain and simple: post a photo of your workdesk on your blog and put your link in the linkie-list on Julia’s blog! Then visit (some, all) the other participants to see what they are up to. That’s it.
So here’s what my desk looks like this morning.
I’m not working on something specific today, but there’s two presents on my desk! I found a surprise package in my mailbox last Saturday… I recognized the handwriting from my friend Lenny but didn’t know what was in the package. When I opened it there was this beautiful box with Japanese brushes and a little card (the one with the bird in my window sill, in front of the pen-holder) saying “I am decluttering my house and changes are that this box might open more in your atelier…” (You can count on that Lenny!)
Mandy van Goeije brought the stack of beautiful papers, dictionary and book pages with her as a present yesterday. Mandy is an art journaler who lives nearby but whom I never met… we found it time to meet and she came visit me yesterday… time flies when you put two creative souls together in an atelier… we even forgot to have lunch! She brought some of her journals with her and how beautiful it is to see her art in real life! If you have some spare time, you should check out her blog and art!
And today, at the WOYWW anniversary, presents are involved also… well, sort of. For the ‘deskers’ who are in for it, there’s an ATC swap going on to celebrate the 8 year milestone. I participate in that swap and created five ATCs. One is for the next person who puts her name/link in the link-list (that is according to the ‘rules’) and I also like to send one ATC to the person who sends me an ATC (the one above me in the list, which is Sandra de), so I have three spare ATC’s to trade with who-ever wants to swap with me. If you would like to receive one of these, just say so in your comment (when there are more ‘candidates’ for a swap I will randomly draw names tomorrow – Thursday – and contact you.)
So… celebrate today and see you for another year-round of WOYWW!
