What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday – #227

Preparing for a new blog series.

Preparing for a new blog series.

Hello Everyone! How are my crafty friends doing today?  I hope well. I have to say thank you so much to all of you who left comments last week. I promise to visit any of you that I missed this week.

I am feeling happy today. I just started working on a new blog series for this site. the name of it is, “Confessions of a Scrapbook Kit Hoarder“.  It will be so helpful for me to move me through my creative hoarding habits into a  more productive crafter while at the same time sharing my creative process with my readers.

So what you see on my desk is the beginnings of the planning process. So if you are interested in seeing if I can kick the hoarding habit, do check back on the site regularly to see the cool projects I can come up with using my kits. (Yes, that would be a shameless plug and I apologize.  However the more people that read, the more likely I will honor my commitment and create more with my kits.).

Oh and do you see my new toy in the middle of the table? I bought the WeRMemoryKeepers 3×4 punch. It cuts photos and papers to 3×4 and rounds the corners too. Perfect for the Page Protectors in my Project Life.

I am off to come visit your 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. Have fun playing with your goodies and new toy. Happy crafting #4

  2. Hi Belilnda,

  4. Love the name of your new blog series and look forward to following along from time to time and seeing what you create with your hoarded stash. Have a great week! Danie #16

  5. Great name for your new adventure! I’ll pop by to see how you’re doing and offer encouragement. Tho’ I’m not a scrapbook er. Nifty new tool you’ve got there. Happy WOYWW! Nan G #14

  6. I think any means of encouraging people to sue up what they have is very welcome… I am not sure it will stop me hoarding but it might give me breathing space!! LOL Annette #7

  7. I haven’t been crafting long enough to hoard yet, I think. I’m still at the stage where I don’t seem to have all the things I need, but maybe that’s just the beginning of hoarding?! I will definitely check back in the future to see how you get on with using your stuff! Happy WOYWW! Julie Ann xx #38

  8. Good luck with your new venture, and new toys – the punch sounds ideal! Helen, #20

  9. I have the same issue with hoarding kits…only they are digital so don’t take up any room lol. Love your blog.

  11. Hi Belinda
    well done you for tackling all that hoarding but you shouldn’t feel too bad about having all that stuff, we are all in the same boat but some of us don’t admit it.
    I look forward to seeing what you do and I love the sound of that punch you have
    Happy WOYWW and wishing you a great week

  12. Haha as Ria Gall said: We are all in the same boat. There’s huge wishlist of things I want, full shopping carts left behind in online stores, and lots of scraps and papers and other tidbits I just can’t throw away because “it might have a use”. I rarely use kits though, but still, lots of stuff…
    Good luck on the planning and excecution of the plan!

  13. I think we’re all hoarders at heart, look at my caddy!! But it’s good to use up things we have before buying more… or things we have at the same time as buying more, lol! I’ve been buying pre loved stamps on Ebay and putting them by for Christmas, and it’s only October! I love to emboss and use it a lot, 10 of the 11 cards I made for WCMD have embossing on them, I posted them earlier this week if you’d like to take a look. Hope you get your Fall cards finished soon.

  14. Good on you for trying to kick the hording habit. Good luck with it. Thanks for sharing. Happy WOYWW. Caro x #80

  15. Lots of goodies on your desk! I wish you all the best with your series and challenge for yourself. I am not a scrapbooker, but have been known to horde my favorite card making and stamping supplies. I have been better this year about using them lately.

  16. Good for you! I know how hard hoarding can be when it comes to creating. I can see a project in the making in a napkin! Once I had to cut back and really got organized, creating is so much more easy since I know where everything is and I no longer have piles to sift through. I will be coming back to visit and watch your progress 🙂 Have a great WOYWW week! Rasz #108

  17. Hi Belinda,

    Your area looks nice and neat! Honestly, I don’t know a crafter that isn’t some sort of hoarder…. I thought it was a qualification?

    Happy belated WOYWW
    Peace, Kay (19)

    • Kay,
      I agree totally that it is a qualification. I mean really I can’t help it that I need to have all the awesome products out there despite the lack of time to even use them!!
