What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday – #159

Hello Everyone!  I am feeling pretty good today.  Despite the fact that yesterday I received the dreaded news I need to add reading glasses to my vision aides.    I switch back and forth wearing glasses and contacts but over the last few months I have noticed the sudden difficulties with reading on my phone and e-reader.  I have also had more headaches than usual. So now I am bypassing the traditional bifocals to transition lenses. They say it takes time to adjust but won’t have to pull glasses off. I also have to pick up some reading glasses for the days I wear contacts and want to read my book. Which is often.  So I must wait a week for their arrival.



My monthly scrapbooking kit

I have received monthly scrapbooking kits for years. And being the paper hoarder I am, I take a long time to use them (if ever). So my new plan is that when a new kit arrives, to spread it on my desk to force me to use it. So here it is and I plan on making some cards and layouts with it. This kit is really great. It has Lily Bee Design, Jillbean and a lot of other really pretty papers and embellies.  I also have a few straggling Copic markers on my desk and some images I am practicing coloring.  You can see some of my Spellbinders that are out because I am making a case to store them.  The photo is of my mum, sister and none other than the amazing classical/opera singer, actress, Audra McDonald. The photo was taken after her performance.

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. I too use to collect kits… I stopped all of them because I never used them and I was still buying random stuff. I finally made myself a promise to use what you got.. so far so good.. oh I still buy stuff but not like I use to. have a great day!

  2. Hello there my dear name sake. Sorry to hear of the eyesight problem, that would be my worst nightmare, thankfully I have been spared that for a while I think…fingers crossed.

    I have not got any further with your album to hold the ATCs as I had a class to kit for and Father’s day etc… Oh and now my latest inspiration as you will see on my WOYWW post.

    There are just not enough productive hours in a day…I wish I did not need to sleep. I could play at my desk all night too.
