What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday – #489

Good morning my crafty WOYWW friends! For those of you that aren’t familiar with WOYWW (What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday), 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 where we get to snoop on other crafter’s desks.

Hello, hello, hello! Today both my boys have half days so I can’t babble on as usual.  On my desk, you see my newest bullet journal. I am using this one as my new book journal. I really like this brand for a journal and thought it would be nice to have all of my journals from the same brand. That way they will look nice and uniform on my shelf. I chose a pretty pink one for this one.

I have my color pencils out because I am doing a two-page spread for Non-fiction November which is a Booktube challenge to promote more non-fiction reading. I found great inspiration for a visual display in book journals on Pinterest. So I created a bookshelf and placed books on the shelves I then added titles to the books that I can use as options to read during the month of November for the challenge.  I realize after I started writing in titles that I included some fiction books from my TBR. So I think I will go back and leave only non-fiction titles.  I am a slow reader and November is a holiday month so I will not get to all of these books so, after November, I  will just use it as a Non-fiction TBR list. I used some cute plant stickers I had bought a while back from Target to add interest to the shelves. I also think I will add the year to the page. As I read the books, I think I will color them in for more visual motivation.

On the top right, you can also see some blue acrylic paint I have from another coloring page. It’s laying out to dry but hopefully, I can share it with you when I am complete. On the left, under my pencil case you can see a card I made a while back and some new phrase die-cuts I bought. I decided to cut out a bunch so that they are ready for use on projects instead of having to pull out my Cuttlebug to cut them each time.

Well, I need to run but I hope you all are having a wonderful day with at least a dash of crafty time!



  1. Hi Belinda, bullet journals are becoming very popular – they seem like fun and I might start one next year when I’ve finished with my current planner. As someone who really enjoys reading a non-fiction it’s good to know that there’s a challenge to promote it in November. Thanks for your earlier comment. About knitting – I think it’s like learning to swim, you never forget how to do it, you might need to check out a few YouTube videos to refresh your memory. However, socks are my biggest challenge to date. Have a great week ahead. Elizabeth x #22

  2. Nice new notebook there! I am not a journal or diary keeper at all and so admire those who can! The idea of a non-fiction read really appeals as I don’t read enough to be truthful. Hope you enjoy the titles that you’ve picked!

  3. I’ve never done bullet journals although I do like to “journal” well, I make art in a journal, I don’t write in it. Have a great week Helen #4

  4. Busy desk! I need to sit and color some images for a tag swap. Did get my video done and a few other projects. Anyway, thanks for popping by and hope you get all your reading and coloring done!

  5. I am more of an Art journalist myself but I love to see what other people get up to. Nice collection of pencils too. Have a great woyww and a happy crafty week, Angela x16x

  6. Very nice. I like the idea of keeping track of the books. I do that during my summer reading marathon, but that’s it. Have a great week. Dorlene #28

  7. Hi Belinda and what a great way to keep track of the books you have read and intend to read. Hope you manage to find time for them all. Have a good week. Sarah #3

  8. I’ve read about those journals but I just can’t commit to something else until I get caught up on my other projects lol! If I spent more time working on stuff I might make some forward progress! Thanks for the visit,

A list for a month of reading, well, I’d dotn seem to read at moment, might start up again sooon as I’ve a long list waiting for me!!
    Happy belated WOYWW!

  11. I’m not a bullet journal person but I always enjoy seeing your spreads… especially the book shelf drawings! I love that you want all of your journals to be uniform on the shelf. That is soooo me. hehe Creative Blessings! Kelly #26
