WOYWW Wk 94

Wednesday again! The weeks are just flying by!
On my desk this week is my journal and some more of the little birds that seem to have taken over my life at the moment! (I wish I could remember where I got the inspiration for these little chaps from but I really can't, I looked at so many books, blogs, websites, magazines over the last few weeks when I was feeling really poorly and couldn't drag myself to my studio to actually make anything!)
My journal is not something I share readily with anyone but yesterday I did blog the entry I did (it has one of my little birdies on it).
In this photo my desk looks quite calm.

This one shows a different story! I am back to just a small space to 'work' in again, looks like I will be tidying up before I start another project!

A closer look at the little birdies!


A journal covered in K&Co paper over stamped with a Paper Artsy swirl in black Archival ink. A little birdie coloured in reds and oranges, a ribbon attached on the back cover to close the journal and a shrink birdie and some beads at the bottom of the ribbon.
If you would like to see more desks pop over to Julia's at the Stamping Ground. Happy WOYWW!
I would like to say a big THANK YOU to everyone who has visited my blog this week!

Looks just lovely here. Great space - can understand you don't want everyone looking in the journal - it is a private thing - but the pages are very beautiful...

Thanks for sharing today, enjoy yourself...

Sorry to learn you have been poorly - I'm sure the birdies have helped. Enjoy your journal - soak yourself in its therapy.

Hands to Work, Hearts to God said...

Very nice journals! I've been practicing drawing hands for about a year or two, now I'm going to practice birds. I always watch them and I love their form- perfect! Somehow when i see birds, I think of how God must have been so pleased when He made them! They are all beautiful! Patsy from

I read somewhere once that birds are the link between the earth and the sky.... Maybe you make them because you'd like their freedom to fly? But you can fly! Through your art! Happy WOYWW,

Love the cover of your journal - I've had one sitting waiting for me to do something with the cover for ages but I didn't have any ideas - your cover is inspirational :) Your birds are fab and I like the way you have flowers scattered around your shelving. Have a great week. Elizabeth x #27
