What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday – 209

Hello Everyone! I have finally surfaced after two months away from our weekly fun.  Life seemed to get busy and I had to step away from my craft table for a bit. But I am back and ideas and projects are starting to come to the surface again.  My creative mojo is returning.

My current projects

On the left you can see two birthday cards I just made for some upcoming birthdays.  My sweet husband bought me a Silhouette for my birthday and up on the top left you will see the glitter that came with it. You will also see my first cuts up there. One is of the words “Hello Summer” and then I learned how to use the print to cut feature to cut out some of my digis. More on my adventures with my new Silhouette. I have only had it a few days but I am having a blast.

In the center of my desk you can see my teacher gift I am working on. It is a file folder converted to a stationary holder. I stamped and colored up the flower and I made the banner with my dies.  Inside I am going to make monogrammed stationary for her.

Under the folder are some images I am coloring up for an upcoming contest entry.  On the top right I printed out a photo using one of my recent favorite iphone app called Beautiful Mess where I can put cute doodles on my photos and when I print them you can see them.  So cute especially for Project Life.

Well I have been away too long so I am off to go soak up your creativeness.

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. Hi Belinda. Thank you for stopping by today. It is great to meet you. As a retired teacher, I know your son’s teacher will love the gift you are making. It is beautiful.

    I too read the Artist’s Way. It took me awhile to work my way through it (starting and stopping several times) but I finally finished it when I joined an online group and we worked our way through together.

    Thank you for letting me take a peek at your desk. It looks like a great place to play. Ginny #109

    • Hi Ginny!

      Thank you for the visit and the kind words.

      I might have to try an online group because I need a little more support to see it through.

      Thanks for visiting.

  2. Hi Belinda! Thanks so much for visiting me. I’m excited for you, getting your envelope maker today. I now have no idea how I lived without this thing! I made a gorgeous card and matching envelope for my mom’s birthday, and I just now went to the post office, and the postman at the counter actually commented on how pretty my envelope was. Score! I proudly, of course, told him I made it. So welcome back to your creative mojo and WOYWW. Have fun dear! Happy WOYWW! Sandy Leigh #100

    • Sandy that is so funny! They look so much prettier than the old white ones we typically use. I can’t wait to play. I will post some seeing that I at least you understand my excitement!

  3. I’m ordering a Silhouette tomorrow!
    We’ll have to start a support group.
    thanks for visiting my place and welcoming me to yours.

  6. Glad to hear you are back into things again. I don’t need things for teachers now I’d be able to make them as my son is in Secondary – typical! BJ#22

  7. Happy Returns! The silhouette is all about jumping in and getting going, I think those who hesitate and worry about the ‘tech’ thing (like I would) tend to find it harder. So glad you’ve found some times to enjoy some crafting again, good for the old brain box huh!!

  8. Love your desk, well organized and full of goodies!!!

  9. Cool gift! Have fun with it. Love the cards. Nice coloring! Thanks for the earlier visit. a late Happy WOYWW! Nan G #103

  12. Belinda, glad you are back to the WOYWW craziness! It looks like you’ve got lots of projects going on. Congrats on the Silhouette. Hope you are having a happy week. ~ Laura #106 (Thanks for your visit!)

  13. Glad your mojo is revving up, and ooooooooo a Silhouette! So many possibilities with that : D. Kits are awesome for when I want to learn something or I want to make something but I don’t want to have to figure out what I’ll need lol. Break out that origami kit and show us what you made! Thanks for visiting my blog. #108

  14. What a lovely gift for the teacher! Thanks for visiting me on WOYWW #209 – I’m terribly late once again! Best, Deb’s Pen Pot WOYWW 216 #115
