What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday – #170

Hello Everyone!  Can you hear the rain? It is pouring outside and dark like night. I have to drop off my oldest first then return a few hours later for kindergarten orientation for my youngest.  There is no amount of wet gear that will spare us from getting soaked in the process.  Is this really necessary for the first day of school?  Oh and is that lightning I just saw? You have to be kidding me.

But for the boys there is a little buzz in the air that’s filled with excitement and anxiety.  The boys are having a bit of time getting back to school time bedtime which is 7 in the room and they can read for 30 minutes and then 7:30 lights out. This summer I let them stay up until 8:30. But this will change once they are in school all day. They are going to be wiped out when they come home. I am looking forward to the 5 and a half hours each day with the boys in school that I can actually work on my projects and take care of my health without the guilt of not playing with the boys.  Now I can have time to dedicate to work and then when they come home I am all theirs.

My latest sale!

So what is on my desk you ask?  Well I am happy to say a package ready to go to the post office for my latest sale on Etsy.  I am so thrilled. If there was a camera on me when I realize I have a sale, I surely would embarrass myself when it is played back.  The thrill will never get old for me. I am currently working on fall products and will be putting sneak peeks up here soon.

New goodies on my desk.

I also have a few new things I bought recently. One is a cute little Halloween stamp with the girl on it. I bought it at Michael’s (all Halloween stamps stuff  %40).  There are also some old stamps I have from last year waiting for my attention.  But the blue masks are brand spankin new. I am hoping to use to create some cool canvas pieces.  I also found a few others I had and never used from old kits of the month.  I won’t bother telling you how old they are but I intend on trying them too.

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!

  2. Hi Belinda thanks for popping to see me and for your well wishes for Callum. I am planning to try selling on line soon so your description of the thrill a sale bring made me smile. I am almost there. I notice you use etsy and was wondering if you can sell downloads (patterns and things like that) via etsy. I am looking for a simple to use solution to test the water! I love all things Halloween! It is gradually getting more popular here. I always decorate my garden and my spook collection of stuff gets bigger every year – It will rival my Christmas stuff soon!! Have fun with your new masks. Happy WOYWW to you from Helen 22

  3. Hi Belinda, congratulaitons on the sale. I have been thinking about setting up an etsy shop. I will have to check it out. Your desk looks like you are ready to do some serious creating. I have been shopping the clearance and sale s and still have a lot of my stuff in bags. I will have to show some of it soon.

  4. Firtly, Congratulations on your sale. What an interesting desk with all those lovely stamps. Hugs from Scotland. Rita xx 123

  12. Poor things in the rain. We had that on Friday, quite torrential and I know what you mean about nothing being able to save you from a soaking! Hope school was good though. Enjoy your 5 hours of creative time to yourself with out the guilt trip!

  13. Hi Belinda,
    thanks for your comment yesterday, I’m only just getting around to other desks as I have a bad sore throat and haven’t felt well.
    Anyway, congrats on your etsy sale, well done.
    Also, glad to hear you have a definite bedtime for your boys when at school, seems parents in Australia (generally) let their children stay up till all hours.
    Cheers, Elaine #24

  14. Congrats on your etsy sale. How fun!! Looks like you have some projects ahead of you, have fun!!! Brigita #53

  15. Every time I come here I just smile. Congrats on your etsy sale! Way to go!!!!

    I’m sure the kids will get back in the swing of things soon enough. I like the winter because it gets dark here by 8:00 p.m. and I feel as though I can go to bed around 9:00 p.m. and not feel lazy!

    Thanks for visiting me already. I’ll be checking out desks for most of the week.

    Happy WOYWW
    Hugs, Kay #15
