It's so HARD to get organized to get anything done! So many of us have piles of things we have ordered, or have begun to move around in our work space.
And alas, nothing is happening yet. That includes MY work space!
Work Table Wednesday is part true confessions, a bit of hey look what I got here!, and of course, new ideas/possibilities.
I think that just photographing the mess on your bench and sharing it, is a bit cathartic. It's also motivating! Once you have shown the world all the cool stuff you have to work with, you probably will organize the space into projects and start on something.
That often happens for our pals at the B'sue Boutiques Creative Group
And that is why, for the last couple of years now---at least!---every Wednesday is WORK TABLE WEDNESDAY at our group.
Here are some pix of some recent tables. Some are already organized into projects and some are just components everywhere with a loose idea or theme going on. Here is Shari Gardner's table. Shari always has bunches of new ideas!
And a table like Shari's is very typical for many of us, by the way.
Here is one of Allison Murray's. Another typical table, but I can promise you something wonderful came off that pile by the weekend. It almost always does.
Allison and Shari have both commented from time to time how WTW, as we call it, is a real help for organizing thoughts and plans.
Here's a table from Leila Belcher:
Wonderful things DID come from that table, and in short order, too. You can see the beginnings of this necklace on her WTW photo, off to the far right.
On the other hand.....
Some tables are spare and organized and you can get an idea of what is going to happen. This is very true of Joan Williams' table, below.
Also true of Chris Kemp's:
Everyone enjoys posting their WTW pictures on Wednesdays at the Creative Group As a rule we have 20-35 people play along on any given week. Any one who is a member of the Group, which is at Facebook, is welcome to post a photo of their table.
They may also be granted PINNING rights for their tables, as we have a special PINTEREST board, just for them:
There are a few requirements to be allowed to pin at the group board. As mentioned, you need to be a Group member. Then, you must have focal-type components from B'sue Boutiques featured somewhere on your table. You can also have your own things you have collected, on your board. Does NOT have to be all B'sue. Just SOME.
To have pinning rights at our Group Board at Pinterest for WTW, you need to be following me:
And then, I have to be following you! So please send me by private message at Facebook, your URL (internet address that appears in your browser bar when you go to your own Pinterest boards). That way I will go right ahead, follow you and then put you right on. Please remember to be following me first before you send me your info, as it makes it really fast to get you on that way.
After that, every Wednesday YOU may pin to the board. Please date your photos, as we get a count by the dates. It's also not a bad idea to watermark them if possible. If not, be SURE you put your name in the description so that I will know the photo is yours.
THEN: EVERY THURSDAY MORNING at the Creative Group, you will see a notice announced with this image:
When you see this image at the Group, 99.9% of the time it means one of our members has WON SOMETHING. Yes, every Thursday I count all the entries and use the random number generator at
https://www.random.org/ Someone's number comes up!
And then.....I pack up a very nice GIFTIE made from the goodies at http://www.bsueboutiques.com
B'sue Boutiques! No two gifties are ever the same and they are usually a good 50.00 worth of THE GOOD STUFF.... which is what we sell at our website.
So there you have it....THAT is what WTW is all about! Come and join us!
Thanks to Jann Tague, who made our WTW badge for us.
She is part of the B'sue Boutiques Project Development Team, whose members design our events and our bi-monthly challenges. Marcia Tuzzolino and Irene Hoffman along with Jann all work very hard to make our Group an encouraging, creative place!
