WOYWW 163 My desk in France

Hello everyone and happy Wednesday. I thought it would be fun to show my little holiday desk in France and join in the WOYWW fun while I am at it. I have not been part of that for quite a few weeks, just too busy and I don't like to show my little space when I don't have the time to visit yours, but now I do and so here it is, my little space in the spare room in our holiday Gite:
Quite a bit of clutter for just a two week holiday, but if I can't play with my inks and paints I go all fidgetty so along came three boxes full of stuff. Oh and here is what I am working on:

A small journal and some pages in a nature inspired mini book.
After my last post several of you were wondering where in France I am, well it's in Burgundy on the edge of a nature reserve, it's totally gorgeous and beautiful!!
Oh and if you are wondering what all this desk stuff is about, just go here and all will be explained.

Sitting here chuckling, cannot believe you took that much stuff with you to France... just goes to show you are certainly addicted (which I might add is a good thing). Lovely work Astrid... don't forget to enjoy your holiday! :-)

Astrid, your journal is just gorgeous - can't believe that you took so much stuff away with you, but I guess you might be lost without it Hope you enjoy your holiday too in that most beautiful part of France. Happy WOYWW, Anne x #54

I wish my travel kit was as large as yours! But it's totally worth it when you create something so beautiful. I love the detail and all the different bits, and the way it all works as one piece. Absolutely stunning.

Thanks for stopping by, cheers, rachel #11

Loving your travel crafting! Looks fab. Ooh forgot to say I think your Twitter account may be hacked cos I keep getting random DM's from you and some of your tweets are a bit strange unless it is you of course then that's ok! Lol Take care, enjoy desk hopping! Zo xx 62

Jan said...

I always takes loads away in our caravan... cannot do without it! Your journal is amazing :-))

RosA said...

I always take stuff to do on holidays, but maybe not quite that much! Anyway, it is worth it because your nature page is absolutely beautiful! So far I have resisted the temptation to buy Inktense pencils, but it's always a possibility. Thanks for visiting and for your kind words.
Enjoy your holiday in France!

JoZart Designs said...

I too always take crafting materials on holiday and it is good to be challenged with fewer items than usual. Your book pages are stunning! Enjoy what's left of your time there,
Love JoZarty x

Wow those pieces you're working on are so beautiful, love the softness and the nature theme. The Gite looks lovely too, hope the weather is better than in the UK! The little drawers are made by Sterlite, but I'm in the US, however I'm sure you could find something similar.

The first thing I spied on your holiday desk was the box of inktense pencils, I so want to get some of those, you lucky thing. Can't believe you took all of that on hols. That journal page is stunning, just love the colours. Enjoy the rest of your holiday.

Liebe Grüße und weiterhin gute Erholung.

Paula J Atkinson said...

Stunning pages, Astrid.
Love the colours & the imagery.
How lovely that you are on the edge of a Nature Reserve.
The Gite my sister & I rent is in the Perigord National Park, nothing but forests for miles with Deer just across the field.

Joynana said...

Wow, you went to France and took your art supplies. You are a dedicated artist. Love the page, it is really beautiful. #29 Thanks for stopping by my blog.

How wonderful to be in France and c rafting whilst the minutes slip by. Reminds me of films I have seen and artists I have read about.
You too are a truly wonderful artist, I admire your work so much.
Sorry I am late this week and thanks for the good wishes. Hugs, Neet #47 xx

Hope you're having/had a fab time in France - I used to live there and I do miss it!

I had to LOL at the amount of stuff you've taken with you - are you going to have any time for doing the tourist thing?

Thanks for stopping by!

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
