What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday – #546

on my desk…

Hello crafty ladies! I’m so late and for a very good reason. My glasses broke and the lense popped out. I glued it with trusty craft glue… who says my craft supplies are useful? So I had to rush down the highway to pick out some new frames. And of course it happens on an early release day! I took forever because I have had these frames for about 2-3 years and really love how unique they are but time was not on my side so I picked the best option with the time constraints. Hopefully they will arrive before our Thanksgiving break. Or I will have to arrive with my glued masterpiece!

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.

Anyhow enough about why I’m late. Let’s look at my desk and the happenings in my craft room. I scored on some lovely craft paper packs at Michaels for a riduculously low price so I thought I would make some holiday cards with the paper.

Left side of my desk.

On the left is my work bullet journal. In the middle is the beginnings of the cards I am making. More photos to come.

Right side of my desk.

On the right is some lovely diecut trees I cut on my Silhouette and will be using them on a card. Also my cards from last week. I still haven’t tested the black watercolor paper. The book is a pre-order that arrived a few days ago. It’s a fantasy novel. The cover is absolutely gorgeous.

I have a really understanding family because I tend to spread out my stuff all over my desk and the floors when I get inspired. (There is truly enough space for us crafters right?) And these paper pads were just what I needed last night to get my craft mojo going. So I selected a few pages from each pad that really jumped out at me and then searched my stash for coordinating cardstock.

Spread out all over the floor.

Then I raided my Silhouette cut files for just the right sentiment. This ‘Joy to the World’ was really pretty. I like that this paper pack is non-traditional colors. I cut some A6 cards go with the envelopes I already own.

Prepping for my assembly process.

I cut out the card front from the pretty papers in preparation for my assembly line.

Finished card.

The color isn’t truly captured by my camera. But it’s very pretty in person and the gold stripes in the plaid are so lovely.

I’m finally on my way to getting my holiday cards made. I will share more as I complete them. I have to catch up with work but will spend the next few days snooping around your desks.f

Happy crafting!
