After what seems like forever, I’m back and jumping right in to WOYWW (what’s on your workdesk Wednesday) blog hop. (WOYWW you ask? Check out the gang at Stamping Ground for a worldwide tour of creative desks today.)

January was an extremely busy month at Casa Tavi, what with celebrating my 60th birthday in Maui (absolutely fabulous), having the entire interior of our home in AZ painted (while living in residence and corralling cats on a daily basis), getting all the carpets cleaned (they will be back to do the tile) and working on remaining calm while everything around us was in a turmoil. AHHHH to have our house back to “normal”, well almost. Still have to hang pictures, but at least we can walk through the house without doing a serpentine maneuver.

So today I can actually share what is on my desk (stuff and supplies still being reassembled).

My desk ready for a day of EXPLORING. Still need to do something about the lighting, and I was so glad that I had grabbed my “essential” supplies so that I could continue to be creative during the disruption.

A closeup of what is planned for today. From the left:

  1. Artfully Inspired Life: finish off January with SPARKS flying. I am waiting on a delivery for my new Parallel Pilot Pens to begin February with PASSION.
  2. Mixing It Up FB group January swap: Tag and ATC received from a new FB friend. I sent off my first Tag and ATC and our lovely coordinator for the month mixed us up. Wow, such love. Getting ready for the February Monthly Challenge, what do you love?
  3. Documented Life Project: Black Gesso. I had started this at the beginning of January and then decided to put it aside. Some of the weeks are already done, and I decided that I don’t have to do everything. More to show next week.
  4. LifeBook: Getting ready to do another amazing lesson with Tam. I think I am ready for the Affirmation Feather. yeah.

It is so great to get back to being able to make something beautiful every day. Cats are adjusting pretty well. Socrates has his “spot” and Newton has less access to plastic chewing attractions. He still lets me know when it is time for dinner starting at 4:25 pm.  Looking forward to hopping around the blogs today and tomorrow. Have a fabulous day!
