What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday – #200

The happenings on my desk.

The happenings on my desk.

Hello Everyone!  Happy Wednesday!  Today I cracked open a new Cricuit cartridge I bought recently and boy am I a happy girl.  I got lost cutting up some cards.  This one is called Creative Cards and to be honest, I wasn’t so impressed with the cover cards but a good crafter always knows you can make things your own. So I can see endless possibilities using this cartridge. I haven’t assembled them yet because I had to get Apollo out of school early today to go to the dentist and then he was home and required some supervision.  But I will share some cards as I complete them.

On the left of my desk you can see a new Basic Grey paper pad called “Bowties”. I am always on the hunt for nice masculine papers. The colors in this one is are very vibrant and there is one with vintage cars that I simply have to use.  Underneath it is the such a cute frame I bought on clearance at Home Goods.  I need to print our family Easter picture and will put it in it for my craft room. Oh and you can see a new water bottle. It is suppose to filter regular tap water but I still run the water through my Brita filter before putting it in this bottle. Kinda defeating the purpose you say? Yes indeed.

New Basic Grey paper and cool new frame.

Near the back are some really $1 cute wooden pieces I bought at Michaels. I plan on using the bird and flower on some garden albums. You can also see my Easter basket I made for myself (yup, I said me.) I put my jelly beans in it.

Wooden goodies I got for a dollar each at Michael's.

Near my lamp, you will see a stinkin’ (yes, I said stinkin’) Jury Summons.  I am being called for Jury duty in June. I think I am the most unlucky when it comes to this. I have gone more than my fair share. I am however, very blessed that I did not have to actually serve on a jury. I just typically get stuck in a room with a “interesting” mix of people.

Anyway that is me for today. Provided, no medical emergencies, I will have time to snoop on some 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!

    • Another enabler in my life. You must be a true girlfriend because all of my friends despite their best efforts are enablers. I just might have to go check it out though!

      • Even though I don’t have many enablers in my life I sort of try to find some through Youtube or Scrapbook message boards hehe..I haven’t been participating in WOYWW lately either by the time I realize it’s wed i’ve got nothing done so I don’t post..but I’m gonna try to make it next week…looking forward to those PL pages of yours..hope you are having a lovely week..xoxo hugs

  5. I love the wooden pieces and that pad us cool too! Thank you for visiting me and have a fab week! xx #99

  6. Looks like a fab cartridge.
    Interesting you say you can’t wait to use your car paper. I have two sheets of vintage car paper and I cannot bear to cut them up!!
    Thanks for stopping by

  7. Looks like a gorgeous cricut cartridge. The wooden shapes from Michaels are great. Love the big flower. SueC#94

  8. You have been busy–I would love one of those machines! So sorry you got called for jury duty….why do they pick on the same people all the time? I actually got chosen to serve one time for a trial where they already convicted the murderer, but had to decide if he should go to prison or mental hospital. That was horrible! I was there for a week. But they keep picking on me. Thanks so much for your sweet visit today. Happy WOYWW! Sandy Leigh #98

  9. Hi Belinda, super post with lots to see on your desk this week. The Cricuit is a bit of a mystery to me – I have a Cuttlebug. Love the wooden shapes. I found today I wasn’t required for jury duty after all , but I fully expect to be called again sometime in the future. My sister has served on a jury twice … I think it’s the luck of the draw! Have a wonderful weekend, Elizabeth x #95

  10. Hiii sorry I didn’t reply in such a long time. I finally got home from a long vacation/trip. I actually haven’t played much with my sil portrait yet. But it’s def worth it if you think u will do a lot of cutting. The big one will prob take up a lot more space. Ill let u know next time I cut something out..ill post for you to see..well hope you are doing well
