What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday #577

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.

This is my desk before I started working this morning. On the left is my journal. I have fallen off a little. I probably journal about 4 days a week but I would like to get back to daily writing. In the middle is some stickers and alphabet stamps and on the right are coloring books and nope, I have not finished the butterfly picture I shared two weeks ago!

I made these bee cards during my last zoom craft session with my girlfriends last Saturday. I love the little bees. Especially the one with the glasses.

I also began there prep work for another card design. I colored and fussy cut these beautiful Bird of Paradise but decided after cut number 3 that I will order the die. It’s just way too much to cut them all by hand. So hopefully it will arrive in a few days so I can continue working on those cards.

So very happy. Last weekend our landscaper came and pruned my shrubs and installed my mulch. It always looks so much more serene when they put it in. Those pesky weeds don’t get to steal the show.

A late birthday gift arrived later in the week. It’s a solar powered garden decor of a flower with dragonflies. It’s so pretty and so bright at night. I love it. I placed it near my deck so I can look at it when we are out in the evening.

Confession: I did buy myself some craft gifts for my birthday! Hee hee. A beautiful color by number coloring book. I will swatch it with my prismacolors this week so I can start coloring in it. I also bought a coloring book with black women in it. It’s so gorgeous and wonderful to see black women in a coloring book. Sooooo naturally I had to buy a set of dark tones colored pencils so that I could better color the images. 😉

Yesterday, I spent over an hour in the morning giving my houseplants some TLC. I bought new pots and mixed up potting soil and repotted plants. I even repotted some of my orchids. They require a different medium. I didn’t want to get bit by mosquitos so I did it right on my deck and swept up the mess (you can see it in the smaller photo on the bottom row) when I finished. Now I have fallen in love all over again with my plants after their transformation into their new homes. I love how the cactus plant matches the pot and the prayer plant pops in the porcelain white pot.

Ok enough of my babbling. It’s time to snoop. Stay well, my friends!
