What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday – #169

Hello Everyone,

I took a week off due to inactivity and or pure laziness to photograph anything of interest.

Cutting cake with dad.

Well I took a picture of my desk today (a day early because I don’t think I will have time to do it on Wednesday).  First of all today is my youngest’s birthday. He turned 5 today. How the time seems to fly by so fast.  I remember his birth and all the in-betweens like they were yesterday and yet I can’t imagine him being 5 years old.  So first I must start off with one of him. As often happens, I take all the photos and I am not in one. I think the only one I found, was extremely blurry.  So this is him and his dad.


Some things a brewin’ on my desk.

On to my desk, well my mother-in-law’s birthday is this Saturday so I put together a card for her. So that is what you see in the middle of the desk.  I colored her with my Copic and used a border punch, pop dots and there you have it.

Birthday card for my mother-in-law.

On the left of my desk, you will see my ATG gun, some Spellbinders tucked under there and some new stamps  (a close up to follow), old photo of my mom and two of her brothers.  In the top middle, is some work in progress tags I am creating with stamps and distress inks. I cut up a bunch so I can crank them out to sell in my shop.  An old Halloween stamp is hiding underneath the ink blender. There is also some new Halloween embellishments from K and Company.  I plan on using them on some Halloween cards.

I have been more productive this week working on personal and work projects which is refreshing despite the fact that it is Back to School rush.

I also wanted to share some great finds I recently acquired at my LSS.  These stamps are so gorgeous and I had looked at them in the past and whined about the high price and then what do you know but they are on the clearance table for %40 off. A girl has to do what a girl has to do and I snatched them at the great new low price. I haven’t gotten to use them since I only had them a week but have big plans for them and look forward to coloring them.

My lastest goodies!

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. Oh look at his lovely smiley face, what a happy 5 year old he is! How cute. Love the card you made for your M in Law, such great colouring. I can’t remember the last time I used my Copics. Bad, huh!

    Great pics and fab goodies. Take care Zo xx 118

  4. What a cutie patootie! Five years old is an important birthday!

    Your card for your MIL is just beautiful. I don’t have any Copics yet but might have to break down and buy just one or two. They are certainly popular among the WOYWWers.

    Your new stamps look fun – I noticed them on your desk photo.

    Happy WOYWW
    Hugs, Kay #17

  5. Hi Belinda,

    Thank you for visiting me just now. I totally understand the distractions of children, but they do provide enriching experiences in other ways. You seem very busy as well! I love that card for your mother-in-law!

    Happy WOYWW!

  8. Ummm, cake! Now I have to go get the Birthday Cake Ice Cream out of the freezer…and I can blame it on you! lol 🙂
    Your card is lovely and your desk is properly bearing all kinds of creativeness! Hope you have a great weekend and thank you so much for stopping by my blog already and leaving me such an encouraging and thoughtful comment. I really appreciated it! 🙂

  9. Hi Belinda, thanks for stopping by yesterday, I am so far behind in leaving comments. But, you know that sometimes life just gets in the way. I am so glad that we have a long weekend coming up and I can get to work on some of the orders that I have received and I have got to start planning what I am going to work on when we go to the beach in October. I don’t want to drag my whole craft romm with me. Have a great weekend. I have been thinking about doing some type of swap. Maybe we can talk about it at a later date and set something up. #27

  10. Happy Birthday to your youngest!
    I know you mentioned he is going off to KDG like my daughter 🙂
    What a cute card!! 🙂
