What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday – #540

on my desk…

Hello crafty ladies! It’s that time again! For those of you that aren’t familiar with WOYWW (What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday), head on over to Julia’s Stamping Ground and you will find desks from all around the world where we get to snoop on other crafter’s desks.

Planning out new projects.

Today I pushed aside crafting so that I can plan out my projects so that I won’t get that overwhelming feeling that tends to settle in around this time of year. I usually start stressing about making products for my shop, making christmas cards for friends and family etc. So I use an online app that syncs with my phone so I can see what needs to be done and when. First, I wrote out a list on paper of new projects, then broke them down into smaller tasks. Now that that is completed I am transcribing them into my app.

The very first thing I did was revisit some of my newer products some that have never been used before plus some old faithfuls and did some prep work of pairing items to use on projects. That way when it comes time to work on each, it will make it that much easier to begin. On the top you see the latest catalog from Paper Source. I rarely buy their pre-made craft items but I draw inspiration from them to create my own on my silhouette or with my stamping products. There is also an old Cocoa Daisy honeycomb stamp that will go well with some of my new project ideas so I added it to the pile.

I couldn’t help but share a picture of my little glass hummingbird that I purchased this summer while on family vacation. I love hummingbirds so much. They amaze me with their speed and exquisite colors. I didn’t know where I was going to put it and finally I thought I could hang it off my lamp on my desk so I can see it everyday. The cool part is that when the light is on, you can really appreciate the multicolored glass.

Lastly, I wanted to share my newest color of Nuvo Drops. I have quite a collection now and these are some colors I felt were missing. I got them in the glossy version which dries with a brilliant shine. The red and green will come in handy for Christmas cards. I can’t wait to use them. Oh and the three books you saw on my desk are books I am trying to finish within the next two weeks because I am going to a bookfair and will have the opportunities to meet these authors and possibly get autographs!!

Well I am off but will pop around over the next few days to see what you ladies are up to.

Have a crafty day!
