What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday – #185

Hello Everyone!

Holiday cards for the teachers.

Today’s post is going to be brief as I am preparing for my vacation with my family. We are going to Florida to be with family and cousins. So I am finalizing my suitcase which I am so desperately trying not to go over the 50 pound weight limit.

Apollo even wrote his teacher’s name on the card.

On my desk, I whipped up a few cards for my boys’ teachers.  Apollo even wrote his teacher’s name on the front of the card.  And yes, that is washi tape I used on some of the cards.   I think my hoarding days of washi tape just might be over.


His handwriting is so cute.

On Friday of last week an is an unspeakable tragedy left a deep whole in our hearts. An elementary school in  Newton, Connecticut a gunman took the lives of  20 children and 6 adults. We received notice in our boys’ backpacks that our school will be asking for donation of teddy bears to meet a goal of 700 that will be shipped on Saturday to the children from Newton.  So these two cute little teddy bears will be for each of my boys to donate to the children. My prayers go out to the families.

Teddy bears the boys are donating.

If you haven’t learned about this amazing creative journey you can take every Wednesday, then head on over to Julia’s Stamping Ground and you will find desks from all around the world for What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday.

Have a safe holiday and I will be back in the new year!

Have a blessed day!



The package

Ok I have to share something that happened that I think is very funny over winter break.  I shall set the scene:  I was on the was on the telephone with my sister-in-law talking and I heard the mailman going down our stairs. So I rushed to the door because I had several orders I somewhat patiently was waiting for arrival.  I see this huge box and start thinking of what I ordered this large.

I was so excited to receive a package but not sure what it was.

So I rush to the kitchen and open the box.

I ordered some stamps from Amazon and it was coming from a third party vendor.

I am not sure what happened but these three stamps could have been mailed to me in a mailer. Instead it arrived at my doorstep in this huge box.

Some perspective of how small these stamps are.

Such a waste of a very large box! I laughed so hard and then I had to take a picture of this madness.

Fun Photos Friday – #10

Wow it’s been a while since I have shared a fun photo for Friday. It certainly not for lack of great photos. My boys definately keep things interesting.

My little decorator!

Apollo really got into helping me decorate around the house this year. This little tree I bought a year ago and I like that it was small and safe for him to decorate. He jumped at the chance to decorate it.

Bring on the holidays!  Bring on the holidays!

What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday – #184

Hello Everyone!!

Only a corner of my desk.

I am in the thick of things so the clutter has returned hence the corner of the desk is revealed. My cup of tea and oh so yummy dark chocolate covered shortbread cookies that I have been drooling over at Trader Joe’s are visible. Not for long, I tend to eat them so fast. (Nope, I refuse to look at the serving size for it will ruin the fun!)


In the middle on the stand is my first of many Valentines cards I have made.  She’s so cute I smile every time I pass by my desk and see it.  I used to display more of my work in my craft room but since opening my shop, I tend to securely store them so that they don’t collect dust or get damaged. Guess that means I need to make more stuff for me in here.  Where ever will I find the time!  Laying on the desk is a Christmas card from one of my crafty friends. Her cards are always amazing. You can’t  see it in the picture but in person the trees sparkle.

You can also see some new Valentines greeting farm stamps. I still need to cut them.  That is the only drag about them is that I have to cut them before I can use them.   The stamps next to the mug are two new ones’ I received in the mail recently.  One is an Indian princess and one is  a Chinese Princess. I have so much planned for them. It’s  a new company that I never used before so I hope the impressions are good.


Gift for my new neighbor!

I have  a new neighbor and I like to welcome people they move onto our street. Growing up on Cape Cod, I was used to the  joys of knowing our neighbors. The kids on my street played together and the parents looked out for you (of course then I would call it ratting you out when they saw you on a street you weren’t suppose to be on. Who me? No, I am not  bitter!!)  I loved visiting neighbors with my mum.  So I whipped up a quick card and bought them a little gift.  Once again, a simple card. I usually color the images now that I have my Copics but for time crunch, I didn’t and you know what? I actually really like it like this.
