What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday – #542

on my desk…

Hello crafty ladies! It’s that time again! 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 where we get to snoop on other crafter’s desks.

Today I am in a rush. My boys have half day and get released at 12 so I am squeezing a post in before I head out to pick them up. My desk is exactly as I left it on Friday when I did my virtual craft hour with Ashley. You can see my smoothie, a cardfront I stamped up and began coloring with my copics. You can see the book sleeve of a new book I bought. I always take the covers off when I read them.

Copic coloring the cardfront.

I plan on coloring them and then adding a blue backgound then adding Nuvo drops to the centers. Will share when I complete it.

I have been wanting to attend this book festival for years and this year I finally made it happen. I had so much fun listening to the various authors speak and then chatting up close for pictures and book signings. It is so nice to be in rooms full of book nerds!

Meeting some amazing authors.

I’m not going to lie, I was fan girling hard. I couldn’t believe I was actually talking with the authors that wrote books I’ve read. It was a very special moment indeed.

My Mom’s 70th birthday celebration.

Today is my late mother’s birthday. She passed away in 2007 but I still think of her daily and hold her close in my heart. I thought I would share this photo from her 70th. I rented out a pottery place and we all made plates for her then headed home to celebrate with the fellas. It was a great time.

Have a blessed day my friends and I will make visits over the next few days.

  6. Hi Belinda, love the stamped image and the colouring of the flowers. Gorgeous photo of your Mom, and what a wonderful birthday that must have been. Have a lovely week, Hugs, Shaz #5 X

  7. Well you actually did something whist you and Ashley were online which is marvellous enough, the colouring on the image is gorgeous! I do that with hardback books too, cant bear lugging the sleeve about. Will be interested to know what you think of the book! I suspect an awful lot if us would happily have traded places with you at the Book FAir, I would love to hear from some of the authors I’ve read! Fan girl away, you wouldn’t be alone!!
