What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday – #429

Hello, I’m back WOYWW friends! It has been a very long time since I joined in the fun of snooping on craft desks around the world. My last WOYWW post was over 3 years ago. Can you believe it? Where does the time go?  I think moving forward I will manage my expectations and aim to create my WOYWW post a minimum of twice a month.  That way I won’t find myself overwhelmed.  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.

Today I have a semi-tidy desk because I have actually been putting in some creative hours.  I spent much the first half of my summer vacationing with my family and neglecting my wonderful garden and now as school time has arrived for at least of one of my children, I am finding the pull to come back to my craft room and play.

So in the picture on the left are two books that I recently read that need to write reviews for to post in my Book Nook section. You can also see some cute stamps from the Target’s dollar section. I used the dumbell stamp in my planner for workout days.

One thing I also have been doing is revisiting online classes that I purchased and never completed. So in the center of the desk, you see the result of a bit of color theory with my Copics.  My goal is to complete all the courses I own this year over the next few months.

On the right of my planner is the most beautiful kit I purchased from Papertrey Ink in May. I received it right before I started my vacations in June and have yet to crack the seal and use them. So another item I have placed in my line of sight to promote action.

Well enough about my desk, I am off to come see your desks.

I hope you all have a blessed day.

Happy New Year Everyone! I can’t believe it has been a month since I have checked in with my WOYWW peeps.  I can’t wait so see what you all are up to.

Well I will tell you what I am up to. I have stuff all over my desk. One big creative heap of goodness. [Read more…]

What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday – #236

Hello my oh so talented crafty friends!  Wow weeks fly by but this time of year it feels even faster.  I feel like scrooge because normally my decorations go up right after Thanksgiving and I mail off all my holiday cards on December 1st. It is not for the lack of cards. We took our family photo before Thanksgiving and printed up photo cards (Last year I started using photo cards and made cards for a select group of people to reduce the stress.)  I just seem to be busy or flat out procrastinating.  Not sure why.

Anyway, enough of the ‘Mysteries of Belinda’ and let me talk desk talk. Since that is our Wednesday ritual.

Last week, Silhouette had and amazing sale – all cut files were 1/2 off and all materials were %50 off. So I loaded up on both because that doesn’t happen very often.  I bought a lot of home decor type files. This one is a little 3D Ledge village. I love it because it can fit on windowsills or shelves really easy.  I created a little winter village with them.

I cut up three and added a little detail and put them on one of the shelves I have to display art in my craft room. You can see the final project here.

On the left of my desk you can see some bookmarks that I cut out on my Silhouette for my son for an upcoming Marketplace Swap.  He filled out cute facts on each about the characters which are from a game he plays called Club Penguin. I realize that the house was assembled incorrectly (the door is opening the wrong way.)while typing this so I had to cut up another for the final winter scene.

I am going to get those cards out by this weeks end. That is my goal. Maybe by telling you all, it will keep me honest and move me out of this procrastinating funk!

If you haven’t learned about this amazing creative journey you can take every Wednesday, then 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.

I hope you all have a blessed day.

Hi Everyone! I have been away a few weeks and have missed you.  I miss all that crafty goodness you all display on your desks that make me want to play in my craft room even more.

I have an annual book club holiday party to attend tonight.  We all bring a book or two that are wrapped and meet at a local restaurant. We have a book swap and play trivia for prizes. Last year, I won a Christmas Cactus and  I was so thrilled I think I told everyone the next day (obviously I am still bragging!).  So I decided to put my Silhouette to work and created some bookmarks  for each member.

Book quotes

Book quotes

I used the’ print and cut’ feature to create the quote I placed on each book mark. The funny part is that my toner on my printer needs replacing so when I printed the quotes they started out green and then faded to aqua towards the end of each quote. The aqua matches perfectly and it looks I was trying for some gradient effect.  So I didn’t have to toss them.  I love that.

I was also pleased I didn’t have to by anything to make these little gifts for my friends.  I even shopped my ribbon stash and found the ribbons to attach to each.  Love when that happens.

Another thing on my desk or should I say my little side table is my Project Life catch up process. I am almost finished with the printing of the photos and will go in to add embellishments.
