WOYWW 227--Can I Just Sit Around and Eat Chocolate All Day?

 Happy What's-On-Your-Workdesk-Wednesday! Be you a desker or just a snooper...it's okay! You can see stuff on creative worktables all over the planet by visiting the lovely Mrs. Julia Dunnit at her blog, Stamping Ground. She hosts this fabulous, fun blog party every Wednesday (as long as we're lucky). You have a desk, right?


work basket, punches, a bottle-turning-vase for the dollouse
Really--it just makes my Wednesday to see a desk just a few hundred miles away from me one moment, and then a desk across the ocean the next moment! I know we take this stuff for granted now...but it's pretty magical.

Speaking of magic, I'm still working magic on my dollhouse--going into week three, I am painting, constructing some furniture, painting sticks for curtain rods, playing with new chandeliers which are actually 2-dollar-on-sale Christmas ornaments, and getting ready to move this heavy thing to its new locale on my big long sunporch for its final interior decorating spree. Such fun! But no spectacular pics this week--you can kind of see it outside the door in my desker photo above. I like doing the painting out there so I can open windows and ventilate. I just paint with abandon however I want, try out different scrapbook papers on the interior, and now I'm experimenting with some stamped words on and in the house.
 
Haven't forgotten my knitted tank top--still going on it!

I've also been working on some art journaling, taking care of my family, working, going to my new tap dancing class on Wednesday nights, dealing with perimenopause and therefore seriously needing some chocolate AND about five uninterrupted days in a row in my crafty corner! That's not happening any time soon--I'll balance the load and steal away my creative moments fueled by dark chocolate whenever I can. At least the weather is perfect!!

And--sure wish I could see Downton Abbey!! (that's for my UK lovelies) Spoiler alert--yes, I saw what happens to dear Mrs. Bates, and I am already heart-broken! I love that character. But we have to wait three more long months. *sigh*

Anyhoo--join the blog party today and have a wonderful week!

Eat, Write, Dream, Stitch, Chocolate

  5. I think we all need chocolate it is good for depression as well as staying awake at night, if you eat chocolate and drink water it give you heaps of energy. Anyway, good to see you have a creative load achieved this week, I can see the doll house just peeping through the window. Thanks for sharing and have a happy creative week.

That's such a good idea, as exercise is just the greatest for making you feel better next to choc of course!!! Glad to hear the D.house is still being worked on; it's just gorgeous and will be an heirloom when you've finished it! Have a great WOYWW! Julie Ann xx #38

  16. The doll house just makes me think like a kid and look at things with imagination. Like you...painting sticks for curtain rods, spools for vases...so fun to get caught up in. Happy day... Carole #93

  17. I don't even understand why this is a question - surely nobody would answer 'no'? I am amazed these days to see how many people are knitting there seems to be a real re-surgence. I've never been able to do it so am always in awe of what people get up to with yarn and a couple of sticks. Happy WOYWW! Cindy #106

  18. Sounds like you're having a fun crafty time - but sorry to hear your lady situation is giving you grief - get that chocolate medication going but tap extra fast at dancing class to make up :0) Have a happy week MMx #51

  19. Chocolate is a must isn't it? Hope you manage to treat yourself along with some crafty time. What a shame you've had the Downton Spoiler, it's a great series so far and you'll have it before you know.
    Happy WOYWW

  23. Tap dancing?? I'm impressed, you must have bags of energy. I'm worn out just thinking about it, lol! Actually, I adore tap dancing in films...Gene Kelly...sigh. The Clark brothers. Gregory Hines...all wonderful dancers. Good Luck, I hope it's going well
    I saw the most amazing wooden tree dolls house in Bath today. Hard to describe but I shall show it next week. I want it!
    And we have a lot to deal with putting up with our body changes...chocolate is good for the soul!

  27. My, my, you are really busy! My mom has a huge dollhouse but most of what's in it are store bought. Yours sounds like such fun! And with chocolate? Perfect!

  28. While I was over in London, one evening in the hotel room I had the TV on and Downton Abbey was on -- I had to quickly turn the channel so I wouldn't see anything. LOL. Dark chocolate is good for you right?! :-) Brigita #103

  29. Hi Sandy,

    I'd say you have lots going on! You have lots of projects going at the same time. I hope you'll show us your finished doll house. I think I'm done with the "M" word and it feels oh, so good. You'll make it, promise!

    Now, I've almost watched all of Season 3 of Downton Abbey (someone else keeps requesting it from the Library so I can't get through the entire season before having to return it). Are you watching Season Three or Four? I don't think Season Four starts here until 2014....

    Happy belated WOYWW
    Peace, Kay (19)
