It's been so long since I've had the time to participate in WOYWW – so I'm glad to find a couple of minutes to spy on other people's desks and work spaces today :)
For anyone who wants to join in the nosey fun, just pop over to Julia's at The Stamping Ground and follow her directions (though I cannot believe that there is anyone at all left in the blogosphere who hasn't heard of Julia and her Mister Linky's Magical Widget *lol*)
I'm at a bit of a standstill for creating right now... in between projects, and unable to decide what to do with either of them.
The clock is still there.. not yet stuck together, and the album (or whatever I do finally choose to place in the clock box) not even started yet. Finding myself at this impasse, I decided to tidy up (I must have been desperate!) and I found a KaiserCraft chest of drawers to make up and decorate. Only, I can't make up my mind on how I want to decorate it. Should I paint first then glue... or glue together and then paint? Do I want to decorate the drawers with wrapped patterned paper... or paint them first and have blocks of paper? Oh dear! I really don't know!
So... that's what's on my work-desk today (or rather 'tonight')... and even if I did want to craft a great deal, I think I might find it quite difficult. Baby wants to play on the desk so much (after being out in the melting snow and getting her paws all dirty!), and if she's not on the desk then she'll be playing around in boxes or hiding behind tools and glues on my shelves - as the following medley of piccies will show...


See what I mean?! She's even claimed my Blackberry Playbook and Kindle as her new toys!  And they're my toys! *lol*
Still... it's hard to get annoyed at such a cutsie-pie :)

Love the clock you have there and I am sure you will come up with just the right idea for your little chest of drawers.

So many things waiting to be decorated, but I am sure they will all be fabulous eventually! The clock looks pretty, so far - hope it's stuck together soon. Helen 9

great looking desk and clock! The kitty looks like she is queen of all she surveys and intends to keep it that way. I tell my girls they are spoiled rotten and they go out of their way to show me how much! Have a great week. Thanks for sharing. Vickie #35

Good morning.
Just popping over to say Hi. I hope you have a good and creative week to follow. Sometimes I just dive in to a project without overthinking it. Both things look fab from here though and I'm sure you'll have a good time with them.

Julia Dunnit said...

She's jealous of your toys and wants all your attention for herself! I don't think it's a bad thing to be at an impasse - do something completely different for a while and I'm pretty sure that the urge to get paper and paint creative will soon come back..and then you'll be a one woman production line!

No matter what you're doing, kitties always like to join in - if they're not sleeping or eating that is LOL!!! Love your workdesk, Happy WOYWW! Karen 94 x

You sound like you need your mojo to come home. I think painting the unit before you glue would be the best way to go. I will keep checking back to see the finished results.

Nice to see you back Bubbles! I'm sure the mojo will flow and the projects will be finished, but not if that cute little kitty has anything to do with it, lol!

Your clock is fabulous and the little Kaisercraft piece will look beautiful once you have decorated it. Small tip, Kaisercraft items are quite a tight fit so if you paint first, don't paint the bits that hold it together if you can avoid it. How do I know? Enough said...... have fun, however you choose to decorate it. Thanks for visiting. Happy WOYWW, Anne x #57

Aaah but I recognise that moment when you know you want to do 'something' but can't settle to how to do it... and with such a cute distraction too! Annette #18

Cute kitty. I understand the in between projects and being indecisive - that's how I spend most of my time. :-)
