What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday?!

It feels like the week is flying by.

My desk is pretty clean, I have a lot of small things and if I don't keep a bit of order I just can't find anything.  My desk is pretty busy though, with a lot of stuff.  I am one of those visual people who likes to see everything.  I also get a real boost seeing my work so keep hanging things up.  I have several metal pieces on the wall and use different types of magnets to hang things.  

At first I wasn't sure about it, but now I love my glass desk.  I have a glass shelf unit that mostly matches the desk, right next to it so I have extra space.  Not sure if you can see her, but on the far right is my glass head.  She is a prized possession my husband gave me.  

 I have been working on Halloween wire projects and some Christmas ornament prototypes.  I have a lot of fun bending wire.
Here is a look at some of our finished Halloween necklaces.  My daughter Isabel made her first necklace, the little glass vial one at the top of the photo.  She got a yellow rose for her birthday, she was born in Texas.  She saved the rose and dried it out; then she broke up one of the dried petals into little pieces and put it in a vial and included a little tag with a star.  The perfect necklace for my little Texas rose.

I love joining the famous What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday!  Julia Dunnit is the gracious host and inventor of WOYWW.  You can see the list of other participants on her blog Stamping Ground or by clicking on the WOYWW button below.  The best part is that you are able to go around the world and see what other desks look like on this beautiful Wednesday.

I hope you are having a great week!  


  1. Your wirework is just amazing. I've really never seen anything like it. How lovely that your daughter saved her rose and made it into a necklace.
