What's on Your Workdesk? Come on...share....

Ok, here it is....WOYWW 177:
My desk doesn't look overly exciting, but it's the week of learning.  I bought a complete set of Spectrum Noir pens, and now it's time to learn how to use them.  Today I spent coloring and coloring, and coloring.  I downloaded some sample tests for certification.  I'm not sure I will attempt certification, I am finding the test graphics very helpful, so I shall at least do some coloring and learning while I do so.  Sooooo.....Join Julia, me and many, many more of us and share your workspace. 

Earlier in the month I bought a storage device.  When I find something I really like, and I find it very inventive, I tell my DH that it must have been invented by a woman...He grumbles as he walks away!  You'll see it on my desk, it looks like a DVD holder (I honestly think that was it's beginning), anyway, it has two levels and it holds over 30 Stickle type bottles.  I don't know who manufactures it, but if you are interested, leave a comment for Karen at Paradise Scrapbook Boutique , she'll let you know how to get one. She sold out the day she introduced them, but maybe she can find more. Someone needs to invent a way to store the Tim Holtz re-inkers....anybody? 

Well, this is short, coloring has tired me out!  I'm going to watch some TV and head for bed.  My prayers go out for the speedy recovery to all those in the path of Sandy.  I hope all of us who are climbing into a warm a dry bed, will remember those who are suffering and donate to the recovery charity of their choice.  Every penny counts.....

Hugs to all,
Mary

  2. Happy WOYWW. Spectrum Noirs (or Speccies to their friends!). I bought the complete set as well. Started watching the DVD that came with it, and the practising, but been so busy since and only used the pens for actual projects! Certification - not heard about that in the UK. Will investigate and see if it is available here. I have just signed up to do a Certificate in Papercraft online. I like to have a reason for everything I do. Ali x #55

  4. It seems the Spectrums are getting better, I remember reading quite a lot of fairly negative reviews when they first came out, about not blending very well.May have to give them a try, I like that they have a lot of really pale, pastel shades, which is where i think the Promarkers are lacking.Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #90

  5. Colourful desk this week, Mary, Spectrum Noirs are featuring on a number of WOYWW posts today. That is a neat storage idea too - we crafters are always on the lookout for storage that works for us. Happy WOYWW, Elizabeth x #76

  9. Oh Mary SNAP! I have had my stickles storage thingy for about a week and it's ridiculously good! A bit wobbly if you don''t load it evenly, but that's hardly a complaint, huh! Am dead impressed that you're taking the time and trouble to learn about the Spectrum Noirs...no doubt you'll be fir for certification in no time. (I mean...oh, I hope you know what I mean!!)
