What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday #587

on my desk…

Hello, my crafty friends! It’s Wednesday and you know what time it is. Time to snoop. 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.

I am running late. This morning we went to the track and then I did some strength training so I am late to write my post. It’s a dreary day and rain is on the horizon which is fine for me because I won’t have to water the garden.


Above is my left cabinet above my desk. I have two above my desk and they are quite messy (I know, an understatement!). Since I plan to reopen my Etsy shop, I want to make the process as seamless a possible so I cleared out all the mess.


Now you I can access my inventory quickly. I used to put these in my craft closet. But that never seems to stay clean for long. You know how doors lead to messes. So now I can keep all my inventory in a clean and easy to access location. I am so thrilled. I will work on the other cabinet as soon as I figure out what I want to put in it.

Birthday celebrations

Last Friday, was my youngest son’s birthday. I am now officially a parent of two teenagers. 😀 He is very knowledgeable in the area of computers and wants to build his own gaming PC. So he saved money and took his birthday money to go to a computer supply store to buy some of the components. He also ordered some online so when he completes it, I will be sure to share his final build.

Peeks in my garden.

I am just crazy about these tall Asters. So one more picture and also a peek at my knockout roses. Things are blooming quite lovely this late in the season.

My newest teapot.

My husband bought me this new teapot to add to my collection so I immediately put it to use. The teacup is old and although pretty, not practical because it doesn’t hold the heat and you burn your fingers.

Butterfly in flight.

I captured this butterfly in flight after they visited my Zinnias. They look like I photoshopped it into the photo.

My new craft toy.

After I complained about my hands after using my Cuttlebug, I finally caved and bought myself this new electronic Sizzix Pro. No more handle for me. I emboss and diecut for my business a lot so this tool makes sense. I can’t wait to give it a try.

This week’s harvest.

Thought I would leave you with this weeks harvest. And my melon is growning quite lovely.

I hope you all are well and I can’t wait to snoop.



  1. I think buying that Siddix machine is a great idea because it’ll save a lot of wear and tear on your hands – I do like your reorganisation of the shelves, so neat and tidy and now you know where everything is! I hate wasting time searching for stuff. Good on your boy for saving up and buying his own computer bits and for building it himself too. My oldest boy was like that and he now works in cyber security!
    Lovely garden pics, your veggies are great and yes, the butterflies do look photoshopped, lol!

  2. I love the teapot and the mug! Happy birthday Apollo!

  3. Hi Belinda. What a fantastic week you have had. Celebrations, new toy, a great harvest! I have an electronic cutting machine – it’s great – no other word for it! Go for it, Apollo! My grandson has just built his own computer – it’s a good skill to have.
    Take care. God bless.

  4. Enjoy your new machine- sounds like it will be money well spent. Your son is very clever building his own computer. clever boy! love the photos from your garden. Helen #1

    I just love re-organising my craft room – sometimes I think I spend more time doing that than crafting! I didn’t know there was an electronic sizzix – I have a gemini, and while I don’t use it all the time there are days when my wrists are very grateful I have it!! Great photos, those zinnias are a gorgeous shade of pink – yum!! Happy Wednesday, stay safe, stay well, Cindy #15

  6. Wow ~ You did a great job organizing! What are those containers called? can you post a link? they look like the perfect size to hold cards. Let us know how you like the electronic big shot too ~ Your garden is lovely, and capturing the butterfly in flight was very cool indeed. Enjoy your harvest and your week

  7. I absolutely love the teapot. Although I don’t drink much tea I do collect the pots, maybe I will show you some of them sometime. Well done for getting yourself organised, I’m working on it because I know you can work better if things are easy to find. Beautiful garden picks too. Take care and have a happy creative week, Angela x10x

  8. Sounds like another thing we have in common Belinda. My youngest son has just built his own gaming computer and is in fact starting his induction today for his new college course in computer gaming design. Its seems to run in the family as my middle son works for a large computer gaming server company ‘Nitrado’ – the two of them are hoping to develop a game together at some point. The new purchase seems a sensible choice. I have the manual version of the large Sizzix and it is great. Great organisation for your Etsy shop inventory. Stay safe and Happy WOYWW. Sarah #6

    I thought I had commented here – but I ,must have been mistaken!
    Brilliant butterfly photo!!
    Love all the Asters too – and I am very impressed with the tidying!
    Take care and stay safe! Susan #13

  10. I didn’t even know there was an electronic Big Shot! Perfectly sensible purchase considering your business, you might actually be able to shave a little time off the making and claim a teeny bit of profit! hope so! happy returns to Apollo, coolest name ever! Seems you all have creativity in your family, just manifesting itself in different ways, how cool is that. I think despite the human story, it’s been a great year for roses hasn’t it, mine are a continuing joy too, and those zinnias are just lovely. Gotta make the most of every day now, it’s distinctly cooler in the mornings now and a frost will finish most things in my little patch!
