What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday #468

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.

My desk is looking a bit similar to last week. I couldn’t shake the allergy symptoms which made for poor sleep and lousy congestion that made my ears feel like I just got off a long flight and they haven’t decompressed.  Unfortunately, I was quite cranky and unproductive for much of the remainder of the week.

However, Saturday morning I rose from my fitful slumber to watch the Royal Wedding and I decided to bring along the coloring book and my pencils. I made some tea and some breakfast and sat and watched all the guests arrive and managed to finish coloring this page from last week before the start of the actual wedding.  Once the ceremony started my eyes were glued to the screen. It is hard to convey the awe and pride I had watching this ceremony. As an African American, I felt so proud. Living in a country that is currently undergoing some major turmoil and division in our governmental infrastructure as well as race relations, I find I am desperately seeking to find the light again. This wedding gave me a moment to rest my head from the daily stress of our current chaos and enjoy a beautiful and symbolic union of Prince Harry and Meghan Markel.II have a dear friend that is blessed with the opportunities to go to Disney World.  She knows my favorite princess is Tiana, which is the only African American princess created by Disney. I have collected a few of her dolls and other items. But my point that I am going for is that now I have a real African American princess to adore.But I digress. Let’s stop the gushing and talk about my desk. Check it out! I have the completed page I started last week. Ha…I actually finished it to share! I think WOYWW helps on the accountability pressure!!  Other items are this beautiful tea themed dies set I bought from my girlfriend over a year ago. Actually maybe longer. I hardly used it to so I was thinking I need to play with it. I am still loving my little tray to hold the colored pencils I use for a page. Lately, I leave my big case on the shelf once I have selected my colors and it makes for less clutter on my desk while I color.On the left is the edge of my bullet journal (it’s turquoise). I just started using it this year instead of a planner. I am really loving the full flexibility and I am not at all upset that I fit half a year in this one so I ordered another, same color to finish off the second half of the year. I also journal in it which I believe led to more space needed but I like having everything in one place and I keep it simple so it’s fun to return to rather than a chore.

Ok, I am going to stop babbling and end this post. I will stop by to visit you all tomorrow because today I am loaded down with appointments and work.

Have a crafty day!
