What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday #589

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.

I am running late! I have so many things going on simultaneously that my head is going to just pop off. I started a 10-day detox yesterday with my friend and I’ll share some photos later in this post. I am still working out the morning kinks of our school routine with the boys in the morning, I am working to fill the holes (and I have many) in my inventory for my shop. More about that later. I am also buddy reading a rather large book with a friend and have fallen off schedule. So getting to my desk this morning any earlier was not happening.

On my desk you can see a little of one of the cards I worked on at last weeks’ Zoom Craft session. You can see my swatches for some of my Nuvos. It’s really a good idea to create one so that when you have a project, you can hold it over the paper and see if the color will work or not. I need to do another one because my collection has grown. You can also see two of my Copics that need refills. Nail polish, yup that’s two bottles of nail polish (A girls got to have some luxuries at her desk!).

Pens are an obsession.

Above is the latest to add to my collection. These pens are made by U Brands and I get them at Target. I wait for new collections to come out and run out and buy them. The write like butter in my journals and the retractable ones have excellent weight to them like higher quality pens. I love using the felt tip one’s in my journals too. So naturally I had to run out and get the latest colors yesterday!!

Craft haul

Last week, I did some social distance craft shopping with my friend, Joan. We went to Michael’s and I found these amazing journals, notebook, and watercolor markers on deep sales. So they instantly went into my basket.

I have never used Tombow’s watercolor markers and they came with a bonus color marker. It was a deal I could not pass on. I will try to test them out later this week.

Detox day 1

So my friend, Ashley and I have been doing a 21-day cleanse every year for several years now. I decided to shake things up when I came across this 10-day cleanse that you do 4 times a year at the beginning of each season. Above is a glimpse of yesterdays foods.

Lunch on day 1

Lunch was pretty yummy. I will do a little tweaks for the next time I have to eat it. So far not bad. Well, actually this mornings breakfast was quite bland and I sat there eating it like a kid eating mashed potatoes (one that doesn’t like them of course). What we do for good health!! haha.


Football season began in the US on Sunday and I was so excited. I am convinced that they will not make it through a complete season due to the pandemic so I am savouring every game. On Sunday, while I watched, I made card bases and stamped them with my branding. It’s wonderful when things like that happen. Now I have more card bases ready to go.

Envelopes’ Rainbow

I had to stock up on more envelopes for my cards. I can’t tell you how much joy it gives me everytime I go shopping for more envelopes.

Envelopes pile.

They just make me happy. I used to use only white envelopes but now I love colored envelopes. They look so great with the cards and they are fun to receive in the mail.

yummy yarn

I saw this yarn when I was shopping with Joan and they really make me want to pick up knitting again. I love these colors and they are so soft. I had to use a lot of control not to buy any.

Roses again

I can’t get enough of my roses this year. This photo does not capture the beauty completely but I thought I would share anyway. I paired them with some pink guara. Next year, I will add a complimentary colored flower to really wow. Ok I am off. I hope you all are well and look forward to some snooping.
