WOYWW 344 Happy New Year

I’m back. After a very long absence from WOYWW (What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday) I am thrilled to begin the new year with the wonderful and creative desks from around the world. Thank you so much Julia from Stamping Ground for keeping this going for so long.

So here was my desk on January 1st.

OMG where to start

OMG where to start

And here is my desk this morning.

Ready to roll

My word for the year is ENJOY and I am planning on participating in a number of year long projects. Starting in the front row…

  • My keep my self organized lovely purple journal: I know I can keep things on my computer but my lifestyle and my memory really need a hard copy version of everything I am working on. Oh so organized for 2016 will definitely let me enjoy my life.
  • Carolyn Dube A Colorful Journey and Permission to Play: I am part way through permission to play, which is the colorful cardboard pieces. And for the monthly challenge we are supposed to create art from something we were going to throw away.
  • Jane Davenport classes: Draw Happy, Supplies Me and Miss Quoted. Just started on these and will devote a lovely Strathmore Mixed Media 500 series small hardbound journal for playing here.
  • Wanderlust: The Strathmore Mixed Media 300 series small wire bound journal is at the ready for the adventure that awaits here.
  • Journal 52: The amazing Effy Wild and cohort in crime  Sarah Trumpp will be conducting us through 2 prompts each week. This is totally free and absolutely amazing. You see my work ENJOY as my first spread.
  • Artfully Inspired Life : the ever awesome and absolutely fabulous Joanne Sharpe classes are the pile of composition books and Strathmore 500 hard cover Mixed Media journals.
  • Lifebook: The crowning glory of my Lifebook 2015 experience. I have about 9 more projects  to complete. I have them all downloaded and now I can pick and choose to add to my beautiful book. See other page for a flip thru if you are interested. And of course I’m enrolled again this year.

So that’s my plan for the year. Ambitious, perhaps, but I feel so much less stress going into 2016. Last year was definitely moving up my learning curve and this year I am ready. So ready. To really ENJOY my artistic life to the fullest. And WOYWW is going to be a part of this. Oh yes and I think Newton may have something to say along the way.

My trusty supervisor in his favorite spot.
