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.

Good afternoon or evening for some of you 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 for What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday where we get to snoop on other crafter’s desks.

I am soooo late today. I am trying to push through my deadlines as well as keep up with all my errands today so this is the best I can do. I hope some of you haven’t gone to bed yet!

Yes. I am still working on my custom project. Hoping to complete this week and mail out on Monday. I can’t show you the project until it is delivered to my client. So she can be the first. But you can see the card bases cut up, the embossing folder I used, a few sample images I colored up trying to find just the right color combinations.

Thought I would share some other photos today. My dear friend and garden guru gave me these gorgeous garlic bulbs so I can try plant them in my garden. I have never grown garlic before and whenever someone tells me something is easy to grow, I secretly think I am doomed to fail!!

My son helped me clean out one of my beds. Don’t mind all the leaves in my yard. As I type, the landscaper is here to take them all away. Well worth it and my back is forever grateful!Then I had him loosen up the soil for me.

I created my rows and holes and placed them in.

Then we layed our mulch of hay on top. Fingers crossed I get some garlic next summer.

Well I need to go finish some laundry. But yay for leftovers tonight. I just want to crawl under a blanket with a book. But I will save that for tomorrow night when we may get our first bit of snow of the season!

Have a blessed night and I will pop around throughout the rest of the week.

What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday – #491

Good morning 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 for What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday where we get to snoop on other crafter’s desks.

It’s Halloween here and I didn’t let it slip by without a little decorating in my craft room. I put up my little signs and cut out bats on my Silhouette to hang in my book nook.

That’s as scary as I get. I don’t care much for the creepy stuff but I didn’t want to pass up the opportunity to spice up my craft room a bit.

Now on to my desk. I was working on a little coloring yesterday while my boys worked on their homework. This coloring book is the beautiful ‘Ivy and the Inky Butterfly by Johanna Basford. I love how this is both a storybook and coloring book.

You can see my color combinations I wrote them out as I used them. I discovered a few that will definitely be added to my favorites list. You can also see some of my Nuvo drops. I went crazy and snagged a bunch a few months ago and although they are similar to Ranger’s Distress Stickles, oh they are so much more. So I am having a blast playing with them. You can also see my Prisma color swatches that I always have on hand when I color.

I am still working on my commissioned project and yesterday I made some good progress. I will continue once I finish this post so once again I will take a few days to get around to desk visits.

I hope you all have a wonderful day and Happy Halloween!

Good morning 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 for What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday where we get to snoop on other crafter’s desks.

Hello! I am not scheduled to post today since I have been trying to post at least every other week but I looked at my hot mess express desk today and said to myself, “Why not?”.

So let’s dig into this clutter. On the left you see my pitcher filled or should I say stuffed with Stampin up markers and some paint brushes. My goal is to move the markers and only have brushes in there since I have been using them a lot more to paint.  Below that, you see my latest purchase – floral wire and tape for an upcoming craft project. Right beside that are some flowers I colored up and need to be placed on a card.  You can also see a completed card peeking out from under the paper cut files from my Silhouette. I am working on a Japanese maple so I need to color them up before assembling them into a home decor item. You can also see some printouts on Copic x-press paper to be colored for a custom order I am working on. I grabbed my container with some of my 6×6 Christmas paper for color combination inspirations. I didn’t clean up my paint from two weeks ago (yes, I said 2) so you can see that and the dirty paint brushes. You can also see a really cool book pin my husband bought me. I am a bit of book nerd and love all things book related.

As I mentioned, I am working on a custom order so I will take a few days to get around to visit your desks.

Have a blessed day and keep crafting!
