ON ME DESK THIS AFTERNOON ...

Well better late than never (it's 3pm) here's my desk - and I've taken the picture from a distance so that you can appreciate how spread out I am. That's my paper scraps box in the foreground, which is getting a lot more use made of it since I took up journal making. Under the desk you can just see my two bins - recycling and rubbish.
Here's a close up of the actual work in progress - a nearly finished page for my new (bigger) journal. If you've seen the other pages you'll know they are pretty small, so I've been busily making myself a set of covers for A4 watercolour papers. Having said that, when I actually sat down with a sheet of paper that size I was pretty intimidated, and felt at first like I was just making everything bigger to fill up the page. It turned out OK in the end I think.
And here's a quick swing to the left to show the little journal, my binder of collage sheets, the book on fancy lettering I've just bought, and under the binder a quick glimpse of the new journal covers. That's my Wednesday contribution - now off to visit some other desks for a good ole nosey about. If you'd like to do the same, get on over to Julia's where a feast of nosiness awaits!!

I'm loving the look of the journal page you are working on there. Do I spot some Crowabout Studio B images?! I felt intimidated by my A4 journal when I first got it but now I am in love with it and everything else feels small! You have a talent for journaling - this is fab :-)

I know I am really late this week, but I was glad I made it by to see your journal and a few of your journal pages from other posts. I love how much light you have at your desk, too. Even while working, I can tell you are a tidy crafter. Happy belated WOYWW.
