What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday – #505

Good morning to my crafty WOYWW friends! 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 Happy New Year to all my WOYWW peeps! I have been MIA for way too long so it’s time to begin my snooping for the new year. I had a wonderful holiday break and then seemed to take a crafting break upon my return. So I had nothing much to share.

This is the first year, I decided to have some coloring resolutions for 2019. One of them is to color at least one page from the many coloring books I own. As with all of my crafting I have a habit of attaching myself to a craft and buying way more than necessary. So this year, I will attempt to color in all of my coloring books.  It should be challenging but fun.

This first coloring is in the Creative Haven Winter Wonderland coloring book. I just started coloring it this morning. So I will share the completed page when I finish it.

On my desk, you can see my bullet journal on the left with some washi tape on it. My cute calendar I received free from Minted printing when I ordered my Christmas cards from them. You can see some new Copic refills for three of my most commonly used colors. The refills arrived last week and I still haven’t gotten around to refilling the markers. Some stamping blocks, some really cute blank cards with envelopes that I bought for $3 at Target. Plan to use them for bases for some Valentine’s cards. my colored pencil tray and the bag below holds so new stamps and dies that arrived for me to play with later this week.

I hope you all are well and I can’t wait to snoop around on your desks. I have an appointment this morning so I will begin my visits when I return home.

Have a crafty day!

Good morning to my crafty WOYWW friends! 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.

Hello my crafty friends! Wow, I can’t believe it’s almost time for the holidays. I wish it would slow down just a little. Today I will warn you is a heavy photo post. I thought I would share some of my Christmas decorations and of course my desk which is quite messy.

My desk has a lot of unfinished paper crafts and two new mini paper pads. I will finish assembling the lanterns tomorrow.

Above is one of the lanterns fully assembled with a light inside. It is so pretty. I decided to make a few of them.

I also added a 3D wall paper wall art to the display with my houses. I love cardinals and love how it pops against the white tree trunks.

We put up our Christmas tree late this year but I will keep it up through the New Year.

I love my black angel. I have had her for years and she makes me smile every time I see her.

Our Elf on the Shelf’s name is Jingle and he makes his way around the house up to Christmas.

Ok I must run. I have a nail appointment to see if someone can make my dried cracked hands and nails look pretty for the holidays.

I will visit desks later today and the rest of the week. Have a Happy Holiday!!

Good morning to my crafty WOYWW friends! 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.

Hello friends! It’s a sunny morning here but bitterly cold. Great day to be inside reading or crafting — my two favorite things to do. I thought I would start off with a photo of one of my display shelves. I brought out my little village from last year for some holiday decor in my craft room. I love the simple white with a tiny touch of red and green. It makes me happy every time I pass by them.

The sunlight is making my photo have a funny glow to it. So my apologies up first. On my desk, you will see a pile of cardstock I bought on sale for a few silhouette projects. You can also see some little trees I found on sale at our local craft store that I intend on using with more little villages I will create on my Silhouette. I couldn’t decide which colors of the little trees I wanted but the sale price made it easy for me to buy them all.

On the right of the cardstock you can see a cute 3D art cut file I just cut on my silhouette. I want to put it on the shelf next to the little village. When I finish assembling it, I will share a photo. To the right of the cut files, you can see my last years score from Target — Christmas paper pads. They are so cute and they were only $3. I took them out to inspire me and use them to make something. You can also see some new Distress Oxide ink pads. I have yet to try them.

I am going to try to keep this brief so I can visit you ladies. I was terrible last week making my rounds because I was trying to finish my commission project(Which is complete and I will share some photos next week). So I shall make up for it now.

Thanks for visiting and have a wonderful day!

What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday – #495

Good morning to my crafty WOYWW friends! 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 hello there! It’s so sunny here right now that it is making me happy. It made taking a photo this morning of my somewhat clean desk a joy.  On the right you can see the box ready to go with the custom card order I had been working on for the last few weeks. I am going to mail them off to my client today. Above that box is a container with all my bits I use in my dot journals. You can see some cute Starry lights I found in the dollar spot at target. Not sure what I will do with them yet. Of course, there is a teacup on my desk. Tea is my beverage of choice pretty much all year but especially in the winter. I am trying out a car diffuser for the first time. This year my husband bought me a diffusor and some lovely essential oils and I use it in my craft room. So I can use the same oils in the car. I am thinking of getting a pine scent to keep me in the holiday spirit. Oh, and yes, it’s on right now — Christmas music. I waited until our Thanksgiving holiday ended and then I rushed to put on Holiday music. Right now ‘Santa Baby’ is playing while I type.

The green cardstock is two segments for a 3D Christmas tree advent calendar I am cutting out on my Silhouette.  As I begin to prepare holiday decor for my home, I also supplement it with themed paper crafts.

On the left are Copics, paint brushes, embossing powders and a pile of books and odds and ends. But let’s just rejoice in being able to see some of my actual desktop. haha!! We had a lovely Thanksgiving with my in-laws and on Saturday, my husband took me to see the incredible Former First Lady Michelle speak. I had pre-ordered her memoir and found out she was coming here to speak so he bought tickets. It was such an inspirational talk that I will never forget. I miss our former president and first lady so much. Well, I have to hustle. I am dismissing the boys early for flu shots and I need to wrap up a few things. Have a blessed day my friends.
