What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday #9

My worktable is all clean this afternoon as I tidied up late yesterday when I finished the January layouts that you see waiting to be put in an album.


This evening I'll be back to working on my current scrapbook-for-hire project. Last week I had a comment asking about the difficulty of scrapbooking for other people. It definitely depends on the project whether it’s easy or difficult when scrapbooking for someone else. This is the third client (and eighth album) I’ve worked with and each has been different, but so far I’ve developed a good report with the client right away and we’ve spent time discussing the project so that I know what they want. I complete a few pages then have the client take a look to be sure I’m creating something that reflects them and the look they have in mind for the project. Once I know I'm on the right track, it's a lot of FUN to create pages to preserve memories and photos for someone else.

Joining in today with Julia at Stamping Ground for What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday. What's on your workdesk this week?

The anticipation of a clear working space gets me creative

Hi Melissa. Oh - all that empty space... My desk hardly ever looks like that - even after I have tidied up!!
Enjoy your next project.
Take care. God bless.

Impressive, as always! I try to be sure that my desk looks like that before I go to bed, but it doesn't last long the next morning!

With all the painting I do my desk never looks as tidy as yours. I'm glad you explained how you scrapbook for others. Something I never thought of and certainly interesting.

Wonderful pages you've made for January. Have to say my desk has never looked that tidy - except for maybe the day I brought it home.

Happy WOYWW

Now that is a tidy desk. Mine never seems to look like that. Scrapbooking for others is new to me, but what a great idea. Sarah #24

That's my "dream" tidy desk. Mmm...maybe I should spend some time this morning tidying :)

Good morning, Melissa. Looks as if you're ready to start the next project. I commend you on your bravery of doing albums for other people. Have you thought about writing a book on the subject? Something to think about. Maybe include sections from people who do Project Life/ Pocket Pages as opposed to traditional. You are very talented. Creative Blessings! Kelly #42
