What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday #582

on my desk…

Hello, my crafty friends! It’s Wednesday and 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.

Well, the heat has been brutal for the last few days. We had a nice day last week but it’s been really hot and humid since. This morning it starting off nice but I think the heat will build so I will soon be under AC. My desk has the remains of my Saturday Zoom craft session. I did a lot of distress oxide coloring and a whole bunch of die-cutting.

First I swatched all of the Distress Oxide colors I own. I own a gazillion of the Distress inks but I haven’t jumped in fully yet to the oxides. But I have to say I really had fun playing with them on Saturday.

Then I cut up some panels out of watercolor paper and began mixing colors.

Next, I grabbed a bunch of word dies, bookmarker and abstract background die. I decided rather than work on a project to completion I wanted to work on some mass production for a bunch of cards.

I die-cut a bunch of words in gold and rose gold paper. I also cut up a few abstract backgrounds in white cardstock as well as some bookmarks.

Once the panels dried I spent a great deal of time stamping and embossing these cool origami stamps in gold. I have dies for each so I plan to use one per card with one word. This will make enough for a lot of cards.

A peek into my flower garden shows my phlox and echinacea that have just to starting to bloom.

Look at these plump zuchinni! I ended up using the cucumer and tomatoes in a salad.

Remember I said there was a nice day last week. Well my husband and I took advantage and went to a nearby lake to people watch and read. I hope we have another day that nice so we can do it again. Next time I will have my beach chairs that I now packed in my car. On this day all we had was tarp to sit on!!

Lastly, I thought I would share a picture of the donuts my husband and son made last week. They were quite yummy.

I hope you all are well and I will make my rounds today and tomorrow!

Stay well, my friends!
