Working on 3 desks lately, this is my writing desk, letters on their way out the door, cook books on the left because I was in a recipe Round Robin where we all own a recipe book and send it to participants and they write or stick recipes in it and we get our books back full of recipes from around the world. The yellow book is one I just finished putting recipes in and will be posted.
 Playing with my Dylusions spray and die templates to make awesome designs on envelopes

This envelope above to the left was decorated by mopping up the excess ink on the laminated sheet I have to protect my table. It made a pretty one of a kind envelope that you can't repeat again LOL
 This desk had pocket letters on the go. I was testing out the Chameleon pens and colouring that candy cane in the book, it turned out well but the water colour paper bled too much. So going to try it on an envelope. The quotes to the right were ready to go in envelopes for my monthly envelope exchange that Jean Wilson runs. You can just see my Christmas CD I decorated with Lumieres, I was showing my friend how it is done, we can start to decorate them now as the weather is getting warmer. I have found you cannot do these CDs in winter, so its a seasonal design for sure LOL
My third desk downstairs that is, I fished out some lumiere and folk art paints as I was searching for my H2os, still cant find them LOL

  5. Aren't your postal exchanges interesting? It must be great fun participating in all these swaps! Am loving your envelopes too...why should they always be white and boring? Yours are much nicer :-)
    Hugs, LLJ 12 xxx

  6. Wow! You are busy! The recipe book sounds interesting. But I'll see what the travelling notebook is like first. I have put my name down for a couple but no-one has asked me for my address yet so it will be a while before its my turn I guess.
    The envelopes are awesome! And I love the idea of putting ATCs with quotes inside the envelope. I received a card yesterday in an envelope made of a calendar page. Very effective.
    Have a good week,

  7. And have you tried any recipes yet? Love the frame on the third know there aren't many people who have the space to enjoy a table for each project - how lucky you have a shop sized craft room, it must be lovely to just switch desks. Those envelopes are dazzling - ill make the mail day so much happier for someone!

  8. Busy busy busy girl you are Bridget - just wish you would show some of your own work - I am missing it.

  9. Oh girl, you are making my head spin...working on 3 desks at once! My oh My! How do you find time for your daily chores? I must be really slowing down in my old age. I really love the pocket page and may have to try one of those!

    Have a great wyww and happy crafting, Angela x

  11. Your envelopes look great! Love those two colours together. Lovely goodies on your desk(s)! happy woyww! zsuzsa @ InkyDinkyDoodle

  12. Congrats on being your Blog Bridge header it is really pretty. Great idea for envelopes...too bad the laminate sheet isn't a plain piece of card stock would make a great background. I'd love to start the pocket page exchange, just need to get past this season. A fun post and fun projects thanks for sharing Happy WOYWW

  13. I love the mop up sessions I have - a favourite technique of Dyans too. Don't you just love those sprays? I think they are the most amazing colours - have you tried her paints yet - marvellous.
    Great envelopes and a good idea.
    Hugs, Neet 15 xx

  14. I love the fact that you have three desks on the go. . Love your stenciling, great envelopes . Have a great week. Soojay 16

  15. Wow - lots of creativity on the go and lots of places to work. The recipe book exchange sounds like fun. Happy WOYWW - thanks for stopping by.

  16. Hi Briget! You really have a neat looking desk, even with all your crafting. Love the envelopes. I don't waste any paint either. I mop it up with other papers and usually use them for backgrounds too. Thanks for the peek. #50

  17. What an interesting post, with so much going on! Those envelopes looks gorgeous, I should try something like that for my pocket letters. Have a great week, happy WOYWW :o) Annie C #43

  20. Those Dylusions sprays look great! I think I might "need" some :)
    Thanks for dropping by earlier,

  21. Hi Bridget, and thanks for popping over to my desk. Have to agree the stenciled envelopes look fabulous. You certainly are a busy lady - 3 desks hey, I make enough mess with one. Have a great week Cheers RobynO#29

  22. I've enjoyed looking at all your desks, I was just thinking how a technique can translate into different forms of art as I stamp through mesh, only on glass.
    Enjoy your week

  23. Three desks, so jealous Bridget:) Loads of lovely projects on the go.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog.

    Happy WOYWW

  24. So many desks! So many projects! Everything looks wonderful though. Good luck with them all. Speaking of H2Os, I should go find mine too. Now where did I put them? :) Happy WOYWW!

  25. Wow Bridget, what a lot of wonderful creative activity on your various desks! The recipe round robin sounds fun, and I love the look of the lumieres - I presume these are twinkling H2Os? I have just got a few but haven't tried them yet. Thank you for your lovely comment - I adore purple too - it's so very purpley isn't it lol!! I am looking forward to experimenting with my new Brushos and have various ideas lined up.

    Happy belated WOYWW,
    Shoshi #32

  28. Busy desks once again! I'd love to have separate places for clean and messy projects, but having just one means it gets cleaned up in between... Love your envelopes :)
    Happy crafting!

  30. Fascinated by all your desks and the fact that each one is for specific tasks! Beautiful mail art envie. Like the idea of a recipe book round robin. What a great thing to have once completed!
