What's On My Work Desk Wednesday

Hi Everyone, well my desk is full of upcycled tin cans that are destined to be beautified and made into storage/organization for my art desk.  You know all those supplies you are always reaching for so why bother putting them away?  I just saw a video on Youtube, which I am linking to so you can go see if this project might be something you are interested in doing 
to prettify your art desk a little bit.  The YouTube video just shows you all the prettiness of the finished product... I am going to be working up a step-by-step photo version
and will post it on my website in the next couple of weeks in case some of you are interested in making one of these yourselves.

Great desk, love the upcycling! Welcome to this somewhat (ahem!) addictive way to spend a Wednesday. Thanks for the visit. Helen 3

Thanks for your thoughtful comments on my blog. I feel your pain. I will never give up speaking up for those who have no voice, praying to awaken folks to the consequences of their actions,
Praying that we can feel one with all beings and love one another,
I would LOVE if you could make a button for my Poetry Journal Monthly. I've been meaning too and haven't had the time. Originally, it was a separate blog, and the response was so low I just incorporated into Rainbow weaves for simplicities sake.
I appreciate you!
Blessings, Robyn 6

Hi Beth,
Thanks for your visit and for your lovely comment. I could see where you were going with the upcycled cans straight away :) Very cool! Love that gorgeous lace on your desk and I see a big script stamp - one of my favourite types of stamps :)
Welcome to WOYWW, and beware, it IS slightly addictive :)
Have a good week,

Hi Beth welcome to WOYWW! I think that's a great idea to up cycle the cans and keep all those little craft things close at hand. Have a happy week

Great idea! All our cans get recycled and I put them in a large plastic box container. All I need to do is dive into that big box and retrieve a few cans, pretty them up, and 'Bob's your uncle'.
Have a good week,
Sorry I’m late but I take my time going through them all. (I enjoy reading all the blogs and look at the photos)

Thank you, and thank you for being interested! Amy xx
Hello Beth
Just popping to see what you are up to and saw your next new project ready to begin. I couldn't view the video sadly but I love the idea and have made a couple myself.
Love the beautiful dress form!
All the best,

Oh I love that tidy - very handy. I have a desktop spinner and I couldn't live without it.

Number only verification has returned so I'm jumping on it!

Happy (late but determined to finish) WOYWW!
