What's on YOUR Workdesk? Wednesday 132

Welcome to my second Wednesday post for the coolest blog hop around.
Click the icon above and you'll be whisked away to Julia's Stamping Ground where you will see all the wonderful links to other crafter's pages.
It's a sneak peek into people's creative spaces and what they are working on today and it's very nearly my most favorite thing to spend my extra time on on Wednesdays and often into Thursday.

So, here's mine!
I am getting some quality art journaling in today amidst taking care of the little ones, cleaning the kitchen and, well, being sick.

Got Pandora going, coffee, working on a Zentangle I started last night.
Still have TWO more Zentangles swirling in my head.
Also working on two other journal pages as I go, layering backgrounds.

So, here I have a girl whose hair is a Zentangle.
Originally she was meant to have flames on the top of her head to represent my awful headaches, but I couldn't work it out, she just looked like a character from Dragonball Z. Hence, the black page on the left. It was where I started and I covered it with black acrylic paint. I am going to do a white on black Zentangle on that page now.

At some point in the near future I NEED to start gift wrapping and baking. OMG, baking. I am going to have to spend like, two days baking. Snickerdoodles, No Bake Cookies, Pumpkin Bread, and I am even going to try my hand at pumpkin pies.
I can't wait... to bake.
It's the cleaning up of the messes that I really despise.

Happy hump day everyone!


  1. I have that lamp!!! It puts out good light, doesn't it.

    So is zentangle like doodling?

    I'm not doing any baking this year, at all. Maybe make a batch of homemade granola.......

  2. It does! (The lamp)

    Thanks for visiting!
    And yes, Zentangling is like doodling. Though, I think there are people who would debate the doodle fact. To me, it is organized doodling, maybe that defines it, sorta of. It's repititious patterns.

    Yum, homemade granola, that sounds YUMMY! I may have to try that.

  3. Ah Michelle, sorry you aren't well, it's a bummer. Hasn't squashed your creativity though, the zen tangle hair gal is amazing...but the idea of the fiery headaches is a worry..poor you. Don't worry about the baking, before or after Christmas, baking is goooooood!

  4. I must have a go at this again, I used to do it, before I knew what it was called.Thank you for my snoop! Have a crafty week, HaPpY WoYwW

  5. the journal looks great and I am on the same sort of baking schedule... I have a list a mile long and am going to be spending all day in the kitchen tomorrow... it is fun though, so happy baking to you!!!

  6. Sorry to hear you are sick! Seems to be a lot of that going around right now! I like the zentangle! The white n black will really pop! I broke down and bought premade sugar cookie and peppermint sugar cookie dough at WalMart yesterday so thats in the bag! Pumpkin pies are easy peasy just leave them in the oven about 10 minutes longer then the recipe says. Mine always came out gooey seeming to me so that worked for me! Have a great week and Happy Holidays! Thanks for sharing. Vickie #35

  8. I love these zentangles - are there any good online tutorials you know about? I've always loved maps, diagrams, you know, stuff with patterns in so these really appeal.
    Hope you beat those headaches, not fun :( And only bake if you really want to - it's not against the law to buy some stuff. I do :)
    Hugs, LLJ #34 xx

  9. Hey if Pandora, coffee and zentangle can't fix those headaches, I don't know what will. Awesome desk.

    and with extreme humility,(NOT!!!) we claim #1 :D!

  10. I'm doing a quick drop in on the WOYWW desks to see what you've all been up to this week. Looks like we are all busy busy this week getting ready for the big day.
    Have a great week.
