What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday – #514

Hello my creative friends! It’s been a little while since I posted my desk and snooped around yours. Hopefully I can get two in this month. Every other week seems to work better for me. Before I babble, let me explain for the newbies. 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.

What a clean desk you might ask. Well that is only because I went to my annual girlfriend creative weekend and took a whole bunch of stuff with me to play. It is usually between 10 – 15 of us that attend a weekend in a beautiful Inn up north. I stayed and played for 4 days! If you want to see some sights from my craft escape check it our here. So that is why my desk is exceptionally tidy.

The floral binder is my new garden journal. I couldn’t resist the beautiful color and the flowers oo la la!!  It’s smaller than I usually use but I will give it a try and see how it works. It being smaller might help me update it more regularly since it would be bulky and heavy to lug around. Front and center is my case with my Prismacolor colored pencils. To the right of it is my brand spankin’ new colored pencil sharpener. I saw a colorist on YouTube talk about it this past weekend and had to have it. I have two small sharpeners that I use but this one gets the sharpest point and it’s said prevents some of the breaking that occurs on occasion while sharpening the pencils. My hands also get tired using my other manual sharpeners. This one you only need to turn the handle 3-4 turns to get an amazing point. It has a self grip for the pencil so it’s easy to use on my desktop or I can also attach it to my desk with the supplies included. So I am going through my case and sharpening all of my pencils in preparation for my next coloring session. This could not happen with my old sharpeners because my hands would be killing me. So I am happy with this purchase.

Look how sharp the pencil is after I sharpen it. So excited. Well that is all I have today. But I will spend the next few days checking out what you ladies have been up to since I last visited!

Make it a crafty day!!

What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday – #508

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! I first must apologize because a few weeks back when I last posted, I was unable to visit all of the desks of all of you that popped by. I plan on rectifying that this week.

Today’s desk not so bad because I cleaned it up a few days ago. Otherwise it would be pure chaos right now. I’m sorry the photo is a little blurry. Today I am sharing another coloring page and this time from the coloring book, “Die Welt unter der Lupe zu Lande by Rita Berman. I love her coloring books so much that I plan on collecting them all. First off, the size of the book is perfect (roughly 8 x 8 inches). It’s not to small and not too big. The images are so pretty that they make you want to color them. I am almost through with this page. Once color the remaining flowers, then I think I will color a table to ground the items. This page will help me get closer to my goal of coloring at least one page in all of my coloring books in 2019. I will share with you the finished page that I shared last time later this week. I meant to post it Monday but that didn’t happen.

Also on my desk is my new collapsible water cup (It’s the green thing) for water coloring. I am loving it and it has a curvy top to rest my brush on.  You can see I still haven’t had time to play with the new distress oxide inks because they are still un-opened. I also still need to test out those new embossing folders from Park Lane and an old die I bought ages ago from WPlus9.

You can also see I took out my Brushos so I can play with them. The ephemera in the package is new and for use in my bullet journals. (I am a sucker for flowers.)

I hope you all are well and can’t wait to see what you are working on.

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!!

Belinda
