A desk of unfinished!!!


So my desk is full
 and I mean full
 of half finished things at the moment...


I am adding my work to the front of all of these journals
so they can go Into The Collective Store
and of course some will be used as Christmas presents...


I have three line drawings
from yesterday
a clivia..
a ginger... and some Frangipani..
which are all in bloom around the neighbourhood
making everything smell summery...
I am hoping to get to add some colour to them later today... 
or at least make a start


I have done a border on a journal page...
which I have idea how I am going to fill...
just wanted to do some painting
in summery colours


Maybe I will fill it with one of these cute little girls from over at
Manon has generously posted an outline on her blog for 
everyone to play with...
head on over and have a look

and if you have some time...  head over to 

for a little desk stalking... 
my favourite Wednesday activity!!!

awesome border for the journals! I would imagine all the gift recipients will be so very happy to get them! It is horribly cold here today and to think 3 months ago I was whining about the 40c days! Hope you have a great week. Merry Christmas! Vickie aka Okienurse

Tracey, your workspace looks fabulous. i love those holders you have for your pens, brushes, etc. Just where they should be - at arms length. Love it. Your journal page "border" looks great!! your colours are always so vibrant & alive. (I'm guessing your personality is similar). :-)
Thanks for the link to all those great desk spaces! So much fun... xoxo
