What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday – #546

on my desk…

Hello crafty ladies! I’m so late and for a very good reason. My glasses broke and the lense popped out. I glued it with trusty craft glue… who says my craft supplies are useful? So I had to rush down the highway to pick out some new frames. And of course it happens on an early release day! I took forever because I have had these frames for about 2-3 years and really love how unique they are but time was not on my side so I picked the best option with the time constraints. Hopefully they will arrive before our Thanksgiving break. Or I will have to arrive with my glued masterpiece!

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.

Anyhow enough about why I’m late. Let’s look at my desk and the happenings in my craft room. I scored on some lovely craft paper packs at Michaels for a riduculously low price so I thought I would make some holiday cards with the paper.

Left side of my desk.

On the left is my work bullet journal. In the middle is the beginnings of the cards I am making. More photos to come.

Right side of my desk.

On the right is some lovely diecut trees I cut on my Silhouette and will be using them on a card. Also my cards from last week. I still haven’t tested the black watercolor paper. The book is a pre-order that arrived a few days ago. It’s a fantasy novel. The cover is absolutely gorgeous.

I have a really understanding family because I tend to spread out my stuff all over my desk and the floors when I get inspired. (There is truly enough space for us crafters right?) And these paper pads were just what I needed last night to get my craft mojo going. So I selected a few pages from each pad that really jumped out at me and then searched my stash for coordinating cardstock.

Spread out all over the floor.

Then I raided my Silhouette cut files for just the right sentiment. This ‘Joy to the World’ was really pretty. I like that this paper pack is non-traditional colors. I cut some A6 cards go with the envelopes I already own.

Prepping for my assembly process.

I cut out the card front from the pretty papers in preparation for my assembly line.

Finished card.

The color isn’t truly captured by my camera. But it’s very pretty in person and the gold stripes in the plaid are so lovely.

I’m finally on my way to getting my holiday cards made. I will share more as I complete them. I have to catch up with work but will spend the next few days snooping around your desks.f

Happy crafting!



  1. I love those diecut trees! Your desk is very busy but everything looks amazing.
    I do hope your glasses are ready in time, such a shame you broke your current pair. Helen #2

    Looking fab my friend!!

  3. I love seeing what you are working on!

  4. I love this modern take on Christmas, i’m seeing it everywhere this year.
    I hope your glasses arrive in time for Thanksgiving if not add a few extra bits from the craft room to spruce up your broken ones we all have glittery stars and baubles lying around during the season. Tracey #5

    • Spoken like a true crafte Tracey! I am sure I would make a splash if I added some bling to my glasses. But the good news is that the new ones arrived today!

  5. Hi Belinda. Gorgeous diecut trees – love them! Great work with the silhouette. Your cards are coming along just fine. Hope your new glasses arrive in time for thanksgiving – otherwise you will be the talk of the family with your glamour and glue!!
    Take care. God bless.

    Ha! I feel your pain! My glasses broke on the first day of my holiday in Spain (nothing of course to do with the fact the stewardess had dropped a book on my nose during the flight). We were a bit remote and I couldn’t find tape of any kind anywhere so had to spend the whole week with them bound up with pink sticking plasters. I would have been very glad of a few craft supplies!! At least they didn’t have dinosaurs on. Love the card, for some reason I’m very partial to a tartan with a touch of pink in it!! Happy (late) WOYWW Cindy #18x

    • Cindy I laughed so hard reading your comment. I kept imagining pink plasters with dinosaurs on your glasses on holiday. Makes for memorable photos!

  7. Busy desk, loving the die cut trees. Wishing you a lovely belated woyww, Angela x15x

  8. Loving the papers and die cut trees. Isn’t it great when you get a bargain on craft stuff! Wouldn’t it be nice if the matching card stock just popped into your hand without having to get everything out to find the best match. Christmas cards looking good, Angela #25

    • Now you’re talking my language, having coodinating cardstock appear in my hand whenI want to create something. Definitely would make me more productive!

  9. Oh I’m sorry to be late! Hope the new frames are timely too – and I wanna see them! I love your Christmas cards, I know what you mean about the injection of something new to kick start the mojo, and it sure worked for you.

    • Hey Julia, you are never late and always welcome! I picked up my new glasses yesterday and will have to take a picture in them.

    I hope your new frames turn up really soon. Loving the variety of papers on show and those die cut trees are so pretty. Happy belated WOYWW. With love & God Bless, Caro x (#10)
