What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday #566

on my desk…

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 friends! My desk is at the beginning stages of a project. I found a wonderful file on Silhouette to make paper daffodils. I am inspired by my blooms in my front yard. So I picked some paper this morning and began cutting them out.

There is something special to me about looking at the cut files, on the cutting mate. Even the negative space they leave behind makes me pause. I bought those three white vases you see on my desk from IKEA many years ago. They have been hanging around in my craft room ever since. So I decided I will put the daffodils in them once I assemble them.

As we are a few weeks out from my real escape into my outdoor gardening, I decided to look through my coloring book collection to find some spring images to color. These three coloring books made the cut.

Last Saturday, I joined some of my crafty friends on Zoom for a craft session. I thought I would be on for an hour and before I knew it 4 hours later we all signed off. It was really nice to craft and engage with friends. We plan on doing another session this Saturday. Perhaps it will be a regular occurrence. Below is the picture I colored with my Prismacolor pencils and of course I had to use a little bit of Nuvo drops as accents.

I would not call myself a stress eater before now. Let’s say I have indulged a little in the past but nothing like now. I find I am constantly in search of something. So naturally, the clothes are starting to stretch when I wear them. I decided to combat the bad habit by starting back up with regular strength training. I have always done it at home but lately, I had put it aside. I started on Monday and I have to say I am sore but feeling really good after I complete each workout.

This is the time of year I start to walk around my garden and look to see who will be joining me again of my plant family. Some casualties occur but most of the time I see them peeking out of the soil. My peonies are starting to peek out. That is them in the picture below.

My spring flowers in the front are in full bloom. They look amazing on cloudy days.

I love all the different varieties. They are the source of my paper flower inspiration. So I am going to try to use papers with similar colors.

I am not sure which one I like better the lighter colored ones or the ones below.

There are also a few hyacinths peeking out. I wish I had planted more because the contrast is fantastic.

Overall, we are all doing well. Some days run smoothly in our home and other days not as much but we are all adjusting. I finally took a ride in my car through the neighborhood with my husband. It was weird seeing people out walking with face masks. I found some in my laundry room that should last us for a while. After that, we will have to make some. I hadn’t left my house since March 16 so I have to say, the ride was great. We didn’t stop anywhere we just drove around. How are you holding up my friends?
