What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 62

Happy Wednesday! Time to snoop around work desks again :) And there are lots of them at Julias blog! I tried to visit everyone last week, but phew, I did get so many interesting ideas whilst snooping around so I got caught up crafting instead. And I did get some fab ideas for storing, but crafting comes first!

So today I'm standing by my kitchen table coating a piece of paper and a linen fabric with Gesso. The roller I used turned out as a disappointment for Gesso, it works better with varnish. I used the plastic knife to create lines on the paper, maybe you can see it if you click on the pic.

Urm, yes, and I'm very organised! I believe it was Keryn who wrote that I could work as a teacher with my skills of organisation, and yup, I've been there! I used to work as a science teacher and could bring order to any chaos! But not any more, it's a fab profession where you get a lot back, but I developed asthma and couldn't work with the chemicals any more. I can still organise though :)

Hope you all get a fab day with lots of snooping,

hugs
Maarit

  18. Violet, sorry to hear about your occupational asthma problems. I bet the kids loved you. Science teachers are so hard to find and good ones are even harder to keep. I enlarged the picture and saw the lines on the fabric. It looks interesting and would love to see what you do with it. Happy WOYWW.

  32. ooh Maarit, what are your plans, fabric and gessso - way out of my comfort zone! Not just teaching that would benefit from having you back, but a host of stores and demonstrators would kill for an organised and well planned person..! Please keep showing the work in progress!
