What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday – #235

Hi Everyone! I have been away a few weeks and have missed you.  I miss all that crafty goodness you all display on your desks that make me want to play in my craft room even more.

I have an annual book club holiday party to attend tonight.  We all bring a book or two that are wrapped and meet at a local restaurant. We have a book swap and play trivia for prizes. Last year, I won a Christmas Cactus and  I was so thrilled I think I told everyone the next day (obviously I am still bragging!).  So I decided to put my Silhouette to work and created some bookmarks  for each member.

Book quotes

Book quotes

I used the’ print and cut’ feature to create the quote I placed on each book mark. The funny part is that my toner on my printer needs replacing so when I printed the quotes they started out green and then faded to aqua towards the end of each quote. The aqua matches perfectly and it looks I was trying for some gradient effect.  So I didn’t have to toss them.  I love that.

I was also pleased I didn’t have to by anything to make these little gifts for my friends.  I even shopped my ribbon stash and found the ribbons to attach to each.  Love when that happens.

Another thing on my desk or should I say my little side table is my Project Life catch up process. I am almost finished with the printing of the photos and will go in to add embellishments.

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.

I hope you all have a blessed day.

  2. Belinda,

    What a great gift to give everyone at the club. I am an avid reader but mine now are all electronic, so love downloading the books. Only keepers are given to me in paperback and there are not many of those these days.

    Thanks for the glimpse of your desk, wonderful.

    Happy WOYWW & Happy Crafting

  7. Your bookmarks look great. Congrats on winning the Christmas cactus last year. #4

  8. So glad to see you this week. I love the quote on your bookmark. How did you get the gradient effect to print – that is soo cool. I saw the Christmas Cactus in your previous post – it is beautiful. Red is my favorite color. April #88

  9. I love it when you can shop your stash and be happy with the results…almost as nice as a fun night out with your group. Hope you had a fun night. I see your PL table still brags sunshine and good light..how lovely!

  10. I hope your son feels better. My Project life is one of the reasons I rearranged. I felt like I was too crowded. We’ll see how long this arrangement lasts. Those root canals are tough and cost just makes it more painful. LOL
