What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday #593

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.

After heavy rain all of yesterday and late into the night, the clouds have lifted and the sun is shining bright making me very happy.

On my desk you can see my laptop, some new goodies that arrived for playtime, my coloring book, planner, and other odds and ends.

Thea my desk plant was getting lonely when I am away from my desk so I bought Drew the Dracaena to keep her company. He may require more light so I will see if he can thrive on my desk or else he will be moved closer to the window. Thea is a bit of a diva but I think she will warm up to Drew.

Above is my latest bargain. I was in Michael’s last week and decided to go into the clearance section. I am so glad I did. I found the stunning paper pack for $1.77!! I couldn’t believe it. I wish they had two because I would have bought more.

I used some of my new dies to make cardfronts at Saturday’s Zoom Craft session. I cut up the paper from that paper pack and love how it looks behind the silhouette deer and trees. I had intended on making some distress backgrounds but this was even easier without the mess. I also tested out some single deer dies. I just love animals in silhouette.

On Sunday, we made the trek to Ikea to go buy a new desk for my youngest son. This was a picture of the line. It’s long but it constantly moved so I didn’t mind much. They only allow a limited amount in the store so they set this up outside. Like Disney World, without the fun rides at the end. But I have to say once we got inside it was really nice. It felt like we had the store to ourselves. Definitely worth the wait. We found a great desk and a few other items.

I will leave you with the start of a new coloring page. I have been missing my coloring books so I made a point to take one out and listened to an audiobook while I colored. I found this great color pallette on Youtube so I have limited colors to choose from but it’s making for a fun time.

I hope you all well. I will visit desks over the next few days like I usually do.

Happy crafting!

  3. Hi Belinda. Those papers look fantastic behind the silhouettes – well found! I can see why you really would have liked two packs!! Trust your new plant settles in well – and gets on with his neighbour… It sounds like Ikea was almost bearable – and you managed o get what you needed – great.
    Take care. God bless.

    That paper looks stunning behind those silhouettes, what a great find! (Like you I would have bought two if they had them). Hope your desk plants learn to get along!! Happy WOYWW, stay well, stay safe, Cindy #21

  6. Great find with that bargain paper pad Belinda, it looks brilliant with the silhouette dies. We have only been to IKEA once since lockdown and found it similar to your experience. Gorgous colouring page. Stay safe Sarah #3

  7. Wow, love that you scored such a good price pack of paper..and that you immediately saw such a great use for it..the silhouette cards are just lovely. I went to our nearest Ikea last Friday, cant say it was very different in terms of access or moving around inside. I met my daughter and her current squeeze and so we had to go into the restaurant for meatballs – had to rebook that and we were served at the table, which made it a delight instead of the usual scrum – i preferred it! I hope the plants make friends and behave well in the light available! Beautiful colour palette for the page in the colouring book, I think limiting it will make you very creative with shading!

  8. Great find on the paper ~ I’ve never gotten that great of a deal at Michael’s, I think we have too many people buying up the bargains where I live. Great idea to use it behind the silhouettes. Have fun coloring ~ Love, Karen#26

  9. Gorgeous papers, Belinda, and what a great bargain! Your silhouette cards are beautiful, and I love your colouring too. Altogether a delightful post!

    Happy belated WOYWW,

  10. Great bargain! I love to get a bargain! Your silhouette cards are beautiful and the paper is ideal. My daughter in law loves Ikea, but there is so much walking ! Belated Happy WOYWW Angela #29

  11. I’m late this week as I was out in the garden all day yesterday and so on catch up today. New goodies always make me happy, have fun. Wishing you a very happy belated woyww, Angela x19x
