What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday – #161


Setting up mask with some stickers.

Hello Everyone,  I am posting away from home this week. We are staying over my in-laws for the July 4th holiday.  Looking forward to some grilling. This year, we brought a lot of healthy alternatives to keep us feeling good throughtout the day. (More like, I need to feel less guilty for the overindulging I do) Lots of seafood and veggies. Yum!

I chose to try the bird sticker.

Well I have to confess I am sick. It started last week with a soar throat now I have a full blown cough and congestion to boot.  It’s very hot here and this isn’t making me the most pleasant at times (imagine that!)  So as for crafting and capturing stuff on film, well that simply didn’t happen.  Well I did find a couple of photos I took before I had to take a break and rest. In these photos I was playing around with the new Tim Holtz distress inks Summer collection. I have to admit, I normally by these one at a time (with coupons) but I loved the colors in the Spring Collection which was only sold in a set of three and bought those a few weeks back and now the Summer collection is out and I couldn’t resist. The colors are just gorgeous.  I started playing around with a tag, some stamps and the inks but then my cold got the best of me so I had to go lay down for a bit.

Starting to add some of that beautiful blue color.

For those of you who don’t follow my blog regularly, I decided to also include this cute photo of my youngest, Apollo who graduated from Preschool this week.  I was a big old puddle of tears when he came out in his cap and gown.

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!
