What's on your workdesk Wednesday is here again. It was here yesterday, wasn't it?? Seems like that to me because this week has been a blur. Hey there Julia, is it really Wednesday then?? Yes, crumbs.
Oh well! better get cracking then.
Actually, I have been so busy for the last couple of days - bathroom walls, hubby's Ebay - that I thought you would be bored if I showed a picture of my little craft space with not much on again!. So without further ado, here is my hubby's 'shed' now that he has transformed it from a metal working shed, lathes, milling machine etc. etc. to a super dooper music room - da da
Note the replacement 1959 re-issue Fender Stratocaster. The one I bought him from Lincoln in September had to go back because the paint started to crack. After much hassle, the shop finally contacted Fender who sent another from across 'the pond' after giving it extra special treatment. After all, Fender has a MASSIVE reputation to uphold.
I made this little ATC some time ago which represents my hubby when he was lead guitarist  in a band called The Silhouettes (a Shadows tribute band) in the 60's.
It's overlaid with acetate. Here is the front and the back separately,

Neither man looks the same now.....

All I want to know is, how he's going to make my new ink applicator tools, my type charms, etc. with a guitar????????

Great music room - this is one photo I will not be showing my DH ... too painful to witness the envy! And, yes, where is he going to make your tools and charms now? Love the ATC too. Have a great week, Elizabeth x #81

Love that music room! Brilliantly put together, but you should have got more ink applicators made first!!

had to laugh - married to a musician so have been schooled in Fender mania. I'm also wondering how, seven guitars and four saxophones are going to paint my kitchen... love the atc!
Thanks for taking some time to share your desk...Sarah at 14.

Hey Jopanne, I think the conversion is amazing, but I fully understand your question,and without wishing to offend, I think it's the red chair that's really so cool in there!!

Lovely music room. I do like that ATC! I love the use of the acetate, and the way it provides a "shadow" layer - nice one! Happy WOYWW, Shoshi #70
