What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday 399- Theatre Edition

Hi lovelies! I can't believe this is WOYWW 399! What? I have been out of the crafty loop for weeks, in rehearsals for "9 to 5 the Musical" and finally we had our opening weekend. And I want you to know, I've really missed Julia's weekly desk party, that's for sure, but oh my goodness, I am having so much fun. At home, the crafty corner is kinda a mess and not being productive right now. I did have a little splurge at Hobby Lobby, and maybe I can share that next week. In the meantime, I never thought my craftiness would get so derailed by being in a show! So here's the proof. This is a desk I've spent way more time at in the theatre in the past few weeks. My dressing room! All the dressing rooms in our ornate, gorgeous Little Theatre (where Fanny Brice herself once performed) are in the basement!

Making up my face for this show is quite like painting--so maybe we can consider that as crafty. You know, I finished the big dollhouse cross-stitch, and I need to take some good photos of that for you. But, I found a UFO! (unfinished object) that I had started a couple of years ago, and now I'm dragging it around with me to get the job done. 
 It's very fitting, because in "9to5" I play Roz Keith, who is madly in love with her boss, Mr. Hart. My number in the show is called "Heart to Hart" so truly, it is perfect! And I will leave you with a little photo of me on stage too. Missed you all and I'm visiting some desks right now!

Happy Wednesday.
Eat, Write, Dream, Stitch

  1. How wonderful to see you in action as it were! I'm so glad the show is going well and doing your stage makeup definitely counts as art 😃 Mind you, the cross stitch is fab too💖 I'm still surrounded by boxes but am going to try and join in next week as it's the 400th edition.

  3. Your post brings back so many memories for me. My daughter has been doing theatre for about 10 years and I actually assistant directed and helped cost.ume "9 to 5" several years back. I so remember all the makeup and costumes in our little dressing rooms when I went in to encourage our cast before the shows. And ironically I also cross stitched back in my 20's, long time ago. Thanks for the memories this morning.

  7. Oh what fun it must be. It sounds like you are having a great time. Nice to fins the cross stitch to fill in at the theatre. I have read of many actresses who embroider and knit between performing, very calming

  12. Being on the stage sounds like a lot of fun for you. So instead of a desk for your crafting you have a stage for your craft. ... Mary-Lou #33
