WOYWW #200 New desk!!!

Its the 200th WOYWW this week!! Julia from Stamping ground gets us all together every Wednesday to have a look at desks from all over the world.. Grab a cuppa and take a browse..
I have a new big wooden desk Woohoo!! Well its a dining table all to myself. No more shakes with things falling off.. With the dabbing of the painting my other one really got the shakes and was starting to bow in the middle.  It also had a big split in the middle because it was a folding table. I rearranged everything and had a big clean up..  My trolley did not fit under my new desk so was just going to put it at the end of the desk. Then thought hmm have got this other table that is not that big that it fits under so moved that to the end and made a spot for my bigshot.. So have really extended my work area now and it still fits in the same area, just a little bit longer and wider shhh:)  I opened up the blinds for you to see better.  This window looks into the backyard.  I love the natural light and find I need it with painting.. That is why everything blocking the light has been moved to the side so I have all that lovely light now coming onto my table.. I painted yesterday and so enjoyed my new spot. 
Here is my painting so you don't have to squint.  I joined along with Tracy at Mixed Media Monday. More info Here  

Well what a surprise to see that I made it to 100 followers.. I would like to say a huge welcome to Denise and my 100th follower Eddyth..  I hope you all like the mix of things that goes on.. I have thought about splitting my painting and mixed media to another blog but thought hey this is what goes on with my crafting.  I so love to mix it all up, so hope you all like the mix of crafts I have to show.. 

Have a great day 
Sandy :)

  17. No, definitely keep it all together. It gives the rest of us more inspiration and we are all nosy anyway. I have a large worktop to work on, but still end up working in a section about 2 foot square if I am lucky. Thank you for your visit today and your kind comments. I think that what you call the ring around my card is just a peeloff chain stretched round. so easy to do. Have a good week. xx Maggie #16

  18. I agree, keep it all together! and your fabulous desk looks ready for every one in WOYWW to come for a visit! (wouldn't that be fun!!)Have a great crafty week!

  23. Hi Sandy
    Its only my second week doing WOYWW. I'm late as I have had two huge busy days and just had no time to get to the computer. As well as when Julia posts the WOYWW post I am at work and its already in the evening here on Wednesday by then LOL. So today I am having a peak at some desks and love your painting...its so nice and bright. Wahoo to the new desk too....that is what my desk is as well...the old kitchen table!!
