WOYWW 151

Gosh it's time for What's on your Workdesk Wednesday already! Where has the week gone?! I knew that I would be pretty absent this week as I have so much to do - but we heard on Monday that the school I am governor at is being OFSTED inspected and their visit starts today - eek! So I will keep this brief as I have heaps and heaps of papers to read in case I'm called upon! 
My desk resembles a half forgotten area with half finished projects lying around and lots of tidying to be done!There is evidence of PaperArtsy Fresco Finish Paints (I spy some Baltic Blue!) and Vintage Photo Distress Ink on my craft mat! 
If you would like to see more creative spaces then please pop on over to the lovely Julia's blog where lots and lots of talented folk share their desks! I will end on a gentle reminder that I have a little birthday blog candy for you - if you are interested then click here! Have a great rest of the week x

Do you use the stamps unmounted then, and just cut them off the plate as you need them? I was a P Governor at Miss D's primary school and was interviewed by OFSTED. I thought I'd done the school no good at all and was really scared to admit it..but the feedback on interviews was all positive! Don't be scared!

france charles said...

so wishing you to find some creative time this week , because your desk looks a bit lonely and you will need some stress relief after the interview ;)
have a happy week

Nice to see evidence of getting painty. As an ex teacher and chair of Governors I know how stressful inspections can be - hope all goes well - (Hazel, #173) x

There is a lot of stuff on your desk-all fun stuff, but boy it sure is shoved to the back as if in a hurry. Good luck with the inspection. I'm sure you'll do the school proud.
