What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday #576

on my desk…

Hello, my crafty friends! It’s Wednesday and I am am a bit late but you know what time it is. Time to snoop. 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.

My desk is messy because I left it after my last session and I have decided to work out on my deck today so it’s rather cluttered. I don’t remember if I talked to you about my renewed interest in scrapbooking. I decided to work on 2 big 12 x 12 albums, one on our trips to Hawaii and the other our trips to Martha’s Vineyard. I was surprised how hard page protectors are to come by now. I think the pandemic has restarted a lot of people’s interest to scrapbook. So I bought an aqua album since it makes me think of the sea. I loaded all of the page protectors I bought into the album. It will be easier to store them in there for easy access to use them.

Let’s face it, I have a lot of patterned paper but I thought a new paper collection would keep me interested so I found that Simple Stories has a new line that works perfectly for both albums. The colors are so gorgeous. I am fighting that hoarder voice that is trying to resurface to compel me to “save” them. Nope, I am going to use as much of this paper and embellishments as possible.

I had to buy the 6×6 paper pack because the 12×12 was out of stock. But I think it will be fine since I am working in page protectors with pockets. The washi tape was so pretty too. I also snagged another line that matched the theme and color quite lovely.

I searched the Silhouette design store for cutfiles that might go with the them and found several. I cut out two of them to see how they look. I am going to store the print out of all of these cutfiles with the paper packs so I have everything in one container for easy access.

I thought I would share a collage of photos taken in my garden this week. Flowers are blooming rather nicely. Lots of colors this year. The gazing ball has a lot of sentimental value since my mother bought it for me many years ago. I am so happy we have been able to keep it without it breaking. It contrasts nicely in the garden.

A peek into my veggie garden reveals some cool stuff. The broccoli is growing. I have not had success in the past so fingers crossed. I never grow strawberries for fear the squirrel may eat them. But this year, I decided to try. I also added canteloup to my garden this year. Let’s see what happens.

Yesterday was my birthday and I decided to take a picture of me on my birthday with my gray hairs exposed during a pandemic. I have to learn to be more comfortable with them at least while I can’t go to the salon.

I spent my morning binge watching a TV show called, “Community” on Netflix with my youngest son, my husband bought yummy sushi for lunch on the deck and then I spent much of the day reading my books on my deck. I didn’t wash a dish, fold clothes or tidy anything for the whole day. I milked it for all it was worth. I had a lovely conversation with two of my sisters and my dear friend that lives in California. It was a really lovely day and our new stove was delivered on my birthday. Not planned, and nope, it is not a birthday gift. I continue to remind my husband that appliances are not birthday or anniversary gifts. So the coincidence of the date of it’s arrival does not change that fact. Hee hee.. I am so excited to use it. We owned our last stove for 15 years. I hope this one will last that long.

I hope you all have a blessed day and stay well. Now it is time for me to grab a cup of tea and begin my snooping!
