What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday – #156 – Happy Anniversary

I am a fairly new WOYWW participant and really enjoy it and very excited about our ATC swap. I have only made a few in the past but look forward to the challenge.

I haven’t been working on much of anything. Our washer broke this week and I have been one crabby momma! Today they arrive with the new washer and I can’t express what 7 days of no laundry being washed in this house means.  Pure chaos that’s what it is.

Fun finds

Fun Finds

So I took a picture of some new purchases since nothing has occured at my desk in a bit.  I recently went to Michael’s and bought the cuteies embellishments by Jolee’s Boutique called  French General that are inspired from old world France.  They are so pretty I know I am going to have a hard time parting with them.  I also bought some more PB&J paper brom Basic Grey and two little stamps to use on small projects (oh, maybe I will use them on some ATCs)  You can also see a tag I created with the Goosebumps Shimmer Texture Spray by Tsukineko.  I am still learning how to use it.  I used it as a resist on the tag.  Very cool stuff.  Of course my desk isn’t complete without my Soy Chai from Starbucks. It’s just heaven in a cup!

Well sorry for the short post. Think I said this last week.

Well I better get going so that I can start spanning the globe looking at other desks. 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.

Have a blessed day!





  1. Hi Belinda!
    I love all the stash you have on your desk! Looks like some really fun stuff to play with! And I am a fellow soy Chai latte addict! With all the WOYWWers each week, I don’t think I have visited you before so I had a quick peek around your blog and I will bookmark it so I can have a better look tomorrow! I noticed you are doing Project Life and I am just about to start that too! I think I am going to be the lucky one that gets your ATC so I will send you my details through your “contact” button I see above as I will be at work all day so this may be easier than waiting for you to email me and then me emailing back 🙂

    • Karen,

      We have quite a bit in common. Yes, I have to pace myself with the Chai. Just love it. I drink it cold on hot days and hot on cold days..
      Maybe we can be Project Life support gals because I am perpetually behind!!

      The beauty of WOYWW is that there is always someone amazing to meet.
      My email address is belinda@belindascrafts.com
      I will try to email you from your site to exchange addresses.

  2. Me again! My email is acting up and will not let me send you my details so I will try later on 🙂
    xoxo Karen

  3. Hi Belinda – I have Micheal envy right now. Fab purchases. I have been lucky enough to visit Florida 3 times and NY once and each time family has sat patiently whilst I browsed and bought gorgeous goodies! Happy WOYWW Birthday to you from Helen 83

  4. Hi Belinda, love all the goodies on your desk – although mine would be a skinny cappuccino rather than a chai latte! – I think you are to be the lucky(?) recipient of my ATC, so if you let me have your snail mail address I will send it to you ASAP. Mind I’ve never made one before so…. hope you’re not disappointed! Have a lovely day, Annie x

  5. WEll, I got a new machine after 7 WEEKS of waiting, not 7 days…I can so relate! Been dragging 3 loads a day to my moms place every morning which I tried to to between teaching my classes. Not fun I can tell you. Finally threw all my toys out the cot at the store where I bought it as it was still under warranty and Whirlpool head office here was messing me around and sending wrong parts etc, I won’t bore you with the nitty gritty, but the store came to the rescue and got my money back for me and I now have an LG, all in the same day I threw my toys…sometimes it pays to make demands esp as I had not been unreasonable.

    As for you purchases, they look great. Green that you guys have Michaels…would love a store like that here.

    I am just back from work, will email you when I finish desk hopping.

    Your Name Sake

  6. Glad to have you in the WOYWW tribe here! Thanks for the peek at your desk today! Happy WOYWW birthday! -Amanda x98!

  7. Happy WOYWW. Hope your washer is set up and running… great desk you shared though! Helen, 8

  8. Thanks for the lovely comments on my blog.

    I haven’t completed my ATC’s yet but plan on doing a wee run on them tomorrow when I get back home. Not had as much time as I would have liked to myself this week! I will e-mail you when I’ve finished them and they are ready to post ok?

    I will invest in some wax paper as well, that way my journal pages won’t stick together… *sighs*

    Take care and Happy WOYWW

  10. Hi Belinda, thanks for stopping by my blog. I sent you my address, I made extras for just such an occassion. Would love to swap. I think you put the wrong number in your comment.

  11. What great new stash you have bought, lucky you. Hope your new washer works well for you, unfortunately once all the washing is done the ironing starts. I have no idea what a Soy Chai is as I have never been to Starbucks. Have a great day. Laura

    • Laura,

      The washer is great. I am enjoying it. Starbucks is a chain of coffeeshops in the US and I believe it is located in some other countries too. They are overpriced but I enjoy their Soy Chai teas. Soy is a milk substitute and Chai is a tea very popular in India and various cultures. I fell for it years ago and can’t get enough of it. it’s a little spicy but if you add milk or soy it is a dream.

  12. It took me a few days to get to the Post Office, but I finally got there this morning to post yours off. I will let you know when yours arrives, usually about a week from the USA to South Africa.

  13. What I would give to go shopping at Michaels, you are so lucky. I am travelling to the States next year hopefully and will do the Michaels shop as one of my priorities. Sorry about your washer, glad you have another now.

    Happy 3rd Anniversary WOYWW

    • Oh I hope you can visit Michael’s another good store is AC Moore. It’s another craft store chain here as well.

      Oh what I would give to go to Australia. It’s on my list. I hope you enjoy your time when you come to the States.

  14. Oooh loveloy new goodies!

    Thanks for sharing and happy WOYWW anniversary. 🙂
