What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday #584

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.

Sorry I am late! But it was hot this morning and we took our boys to walk on the track. I recently decided that my boys were not getting enough movement in their daily lives since lockdown. I am very cautious on them going out, limiting them to mostly our yard, an occassional Target run and a weekly chai run to Starbucks. So I decided to take the 3 times a week to a local track to walk laps. Kids are definitely meant to be sedentary so I am hopeful this will help them. We are still experiencing a high heat and humidity and this morning they were slow getting up so it was a hard walk indeed.

Below you will find my lastest happy mail that arrived on Sunday and I immediately flagged the pages I want to color first. The dreamy water on the cover is so inviting. I miss the beach so much.

Below you can see the pages I flagged to color first. Aren’t they incredible! I don’t know how these artists come up with such cool ideas.

Some of the pages I want to color first.

Yesterday I went to Michaels to pick up the latest planner stuff. I am so thrilled that they are promoting black-owned businesses. This sticker pack and sticky notes are from IndynIvyInk.com. I love that there are black women on stickers. It’s lovely to see myself reflected in the products I use.

I thought I was going to only pick up the planner stuff but bam..A sale on patterned paper pads caught my eye. It was buy one and get two free. I walked past it trying to remind myself how much paper I have at home but then the pull dragged me back.

I selected these three pads. The first thing I did yesterday was to go through them and pull out pages I wanted to work with for some cardmaking.

Then I cut them down to 4 x 5 1/4″ and now they are ready for me to make some cards. I think I will make card sets with them. I will share photos once I begin working on them. The colors are so vibrant and the tiger patterned paper is so unexpected. I can’t wait to work with them this week.

Happy new! My oldest son, received some happy mail last week – his certificate and membership to the National Honor Society. He works so hard and I am so thrilled for him to reach such an acheivement.

My husband is going to make me fat! Here I am trying to exercise to lose my weight gain, and he has taken to baking while we are on lockdown. This time he made chocolate chip bundt cake. I can’t take it!!

Tall Zinnias.

A quick picture of me last week in my garden with my tall Zinnias which are finally blooming. They are so tall and the color is so vibrant. They are one of my favorite flowers so I am happy to see them blooming.

Many of you asked about the Totoe Bread from last week so I have included the recipe. I taste sugar more so I tend to reduce the sugars and it still tastes so yummy. Try it a couple times and I am sure you will find the balance that works for you. It is from a cookbook I bought in Jamaica many years ago. It is called, “Food of Jamaica“. Let me know if you try it.

Stay well ladies! I am going to make my rounds today since I was naughty last week and missed my snooping time!
