What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday #558

on my desk…

Hello! I think for now I will go back to snooping every other week. It is a little less stressful for me that way. So here I am. I hope you all were well last week and sharing your crafty habits today!

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.

Fun coloring book.

Today’s desk has a lot of things in the works. I am still playing around with the Polychromos. But today I have a new coloring book I picked up (just ignore the fact that I said that). It is woodcut style images. The coloring is so simple and it makes me look like a professional colorist!! I think this is a good one to grab after the more detailed ones that I am working on just for a break. I copied the color combinations for this beautiful tiger from the back cover! So it was fast and rewarding.

My first colored page of the book.

On my laptop, I have a genealogy show on Youtube playing so I can learn while I color.

Watching Youtube while coloring.

Then there are some projects I started on my Silhouette. One is the black heart in the back. It will be a heart marquee. I first have to assemble it and figure out how to light it. The instructions are non-existent with the cut file so I will have to figure it out. The other heart you see is to be attached to the green wire and then placed in a pot to look like a heart topiary decor.

The wooden hearts you see on the right are from the Target dollar section and I haven’t figured out what I want to do with them. They are intended to be place cardholders. But I want to do something different.

My new storage for my Nuvo drops.

I have been really trying to keep my craft room tidy since the new year and I bought a few additional storage pieces for my craft room. This new storage for my Nuvo drops is really fun and they stack for even more convenience. I have it on my desk for now so that I will be reminded to use them.

Well, I have taken too much time. I will come snook over the next few days.

Happy crafting!


  1. Always good to see you if it is weekly or fortnightly. Love the look of the colouring book. Your storage is fab too. Have a great week Helen #2

  2. That tiger is fantastic! WOW! I am always impressed by your creations (thinking top hats and the recent eggs) but this is different and quite ind blowing.
    Great to see you have found some good storage solutions whilst in America.
    Looking forward to seeing ore of the hearts.
    Hugs, Neet 9 xx

  3. Beautiful colouring it’s a magnificent image, I can’t remember the last time I coloured in a whole page well done. I love your Nuvo storage, great that it’s clear giving you a wider view of what colours are behind.
    I sometimes can not make it every Wednesday but it’s great to see you today.

  7. You be as flexible as you need to be Miss Belinda, far rather that this madness didn’t cause you any stress! I’m loving the Nuvo storage. I like acrylic for storage anyway, but with all those colours in – it’s just pretty to look at as well as effective! I’m quite fond of topiary decor too, so your plans are right up my street today. I like that you educate yourself whilst you work. I listen to books but I don’t know if you could call them educational!!

  8. Your desk looks very pretty and inviting today. I’m not sure what Nuvo Drops even are, but they look great in that perspex storage/display stand. To be honest I really think you ought to get a few more, just to fill those empty slots…!

  9. Hi Belinda. I’m always pleased to see any kind of storage idea as I’m working on my new studio cabin and at the moment it’s more or less empty so it feels like a massive job but I’ll get there sooner or later. The little hearts are so sweet but I’m sure you’ll find some way to grunge them up Lol! Wishing you a happy and creative woyww, Angela x16x
