It’s time again for yet another workdesk hop all around the world. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, go and check out Julia’s blog, Stamping Ground and she’ll explain it all to you. From there you can also visit all other participating workdesks.
My workdesk this week is a rather funny one, as I’m getting to grips with making youtube video’s .
On the desk you can see the journal page I was filming. Which I finished right in time to post the video and the page here.
First things first. Last week I posted a birthday giveaway and I promised to let my daughter draw a winner from among the comments, both here and on Youtube.
I wanted to thank you all for your lovely comments and your birthday wishes. They really made my day(s).
I printed all the names from the Blogger comments and the YouTube comments and put them in a bowl.
I then let my daughter draw a name and the winner is…..drum roll….
Congratulations Sarah. I hope you like your booklet. I have sent you a message via YouTube asking you to send me your snail mail address.
Now back to what’s on my workdesk and how my nails look nothing like my daughters after my last journal page. My stripey page, though you wouldn’t know it, looking at it now. To see the stripes you wil have to check out the progress (speed) video on YouTube.
I’m still trying things out, different angles and stuff…and whether my bookcase is strong enough…with all this hovering over my head…
So yeah, no progress pics, but a video instead. I do however have some close up shots.
I won’t go through all the steps I went through to get to this point, as you can see those in the video.
Instead I would like to say something about the quote I used on this page.
“Intelligence without ambition is a bird without wings” by Salvador Dali.
I’ve been thinking a lot about ambition these last months, ever since I was diagnosed with a burn out.
Mostly about how to prevent it from happening again and about what has to change to make that so.
About how I am to remain myself within all this change.
About how my competencies can be both my strenght and my weakness
and how my drive and ambition can be my downfall, but how they also make me who I am.
So I’m trying to find my balance through art journalling, journalling and humor.
And that’s what the stripes are for, because, as you can see here, these lines are made for writing…=)
Now I know not everybody will see the humor in this line (think boots), but that’s ok. I had fun making this page and I like how it turned out. The video is not perfect, but I’m learning and getting better all the time (oops, I did it again…)
I also got a wonderful surprise last monday, when I found out that the ATC’s I made for the WOYWW4 anniversary swap were amongst the top 3 at Fun with ATC’s challenge #88 – Recycling. Great start of the week.
So that’s it from me for now, if you want to see some more busy workdesks, go check out Julia’s blog for links to the other workdesks. I’m signing off to do my rounds.
Happy WOYWW to you all and I wish you all a wonderfull week.
