WOYWW 355--Desker Love

I love being a desker. That's all. As I've said in the past, I've had a desk since I was four years old and demanded that mommy give me one of her old nightstands to convert into my color-all-day-and-play-with-Mrs.-Beasley headquarters. Actually, I don't think I got Mrs. Beasley until I was six, but I remember storing dollies in that desk, stickers, paper doll sets, art supplies and of course my play phone. It was home headquarters for years.

Anyhoo, I read Julia's post yesterday because I missed last week, and now all I want is for our Julia to have that surgery and find some relief, and I know we are all thinking of her and praying for comfort and recovery! Now, onto the business of a desker--I am making pompoms with my new clover pompom maker. I think I'm the last yarn lover on the planet to get one. My listbook and Midori (my Dolldori) are laying there, not very pretty, piled up with some stickers. (see, much hasn't changed since I was little) There's some stencils I was using, my heart coffee mug full of creamy morning coffee, and look at that. My compact is laying there! I got some L'Oreal Infallible powder at Ulta, and I love that compact because it keeps the powderpuff in a separate compartment with the mirror. And, the powder is just the best. And let's not even talk about how much I love Ulta...I'm going to marry it later.

In the meantime, I refreshed my desktop silk flowers thanks to a huge haul from JoAnns, complete with sales and four coupons they let me use all at once. I love that place too. But this floral photo is for Julia! Don't they look kinda real? I love having pretty flowers on my desk at all times, real or silk, my desk looks good that way, messy or not. And next to the flowers is my clear acrylic caboodles cosmetic tray--it holds everything for my face! And since I got that great mirror on Amazon, I do my face at the craft desk!

So I'm off for some visits, and Julia I know you are getting showers of blessings, prayers, good thoughts, and so good things are on the way queen of deskers!

Eat, Write, Dream, Stitch


  1. Yes I think we are all thinking and wishing the same for Julia - bless her. Your silk flowers are pretty. Now I am wondering if I too need a Clover pompom maker! lol x Jo

  2. PomPom maker ...nice idea, I learn so much on Wed. Good items on that desk. Liking the stencils too. Wishing you and yours a wonderful Easter.

  3. Such lovely flowers, I'm sure they will put a smile on Julia's face. I was just like you when I was a child - my desk was the centre of my life, where everything happened and precious things were kept. It was a board along an entire length of a wall with a cupboard underneath and shelves above, and I had one end and my sister had the other - needless to say we argued over the dividing line!
    Hope you have a great week and thank you so much for your visit,

  4. I was wondering what those things were on your desk...pom pom makers - how cool!!!
    And yes, blessings and prayer for sweet Julia!
    Have a great day!

  5. I love being a desker too πŸ’•πŸ˜ŠπŸ’– So many wonderful friendships, sharing and caring. It's brilliant! I know Julia is heartened by all the messages of support at the moment and will smile at those fun flowers.
    Those Pom Pom makers are fab, I've got four of various much easier than two circles of cardboard.
    Hugs, LLJ 1 πŸ’•πŸ’πŸ’–

  6. I love Joann's. I love that they let you use more than one coupon. They had a great 60% off last week and I treated myself to an ATG gun. Great buy!
    I love WOYWW. It's always fun to visit with virtual friends and peek at their desks.

    I remember making pom poms when I was little - something to do with a piece of cardboard lol.

    Have fun!

  7. The flowers for Julia were a very thoughtful gesture. I had never heard of makeup on a work desk, but it can be a creative endeavor, so it makes sense. Happy WOYWW!

  8. I am just grinning, I love that you decorate your space with the flowers :) Thanks for the earlier visit, ~Stacy #59

  9. Gorgeous flowers! Great peek at your desk.

  13. Thank you Sandie, it means an awful lot to me to have your support and those lovely flowers...your desk always looks so gorgeous! Take heart - you aren't quite the last to own the pom-pom makers..they've been easy to resist for me because I don't have enough imagination to know what I'd do with them once made!!
