What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday #583

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.

Good morning!! Yesterday we had high winds and rain and then the humidity dropped and the wind continued into the night so winds open for a lovely sleep. I am typing fast because today my crafty girlfriends are having an extra Zoom session today in addition to our weekly Saturday sessions. I have some work to complete before then. I think we are going to begin after 1 which will work out perfectly if I can hunker down after writing this post. Of course, my desk photo above is the hot mess I left it in since yesterday.

I have decided to create a spreadsheet to help me manage and plan my inventory for the re-opening of my Etsy shop. I sometimes tend to make more cards in one category so this will help make sure I have them all filled. I am a mood reader with books as well as crafting so sometimes I go on a binge in one direction. So I am creating a spreadsheet on Excel and my husband is going to help me make into a lovely form that will really help me keep on track.

Above is some happy mail that arrived yesterday. I wanted some nice stickers to use in my personal journal and I ordered these lovelies off of Amazon. They are vellum stickers and they blend in so nicely inside my journal.

I didn’t stick these down yet but I wanted you to see how lovely they are and how they blend so nicely and they are thin so I don’t have to worry about them bulking up the pages or messing with my handwriting. They have beautiful plants, flowers and butterflies!

Speaking of butterflies. Below you can see one of the things I was playing around with last Saturday. I used my Distress oxides, a stencil and a bookmark to play around. They ended up pretty cute.

Yesterday I began replenishing my cardbases. I cut and scored cards in two different orientations. I need to make more today. I like to have them ready to go.

Below you can see the results of last weeks’ zoom session. I diecut the origami images I colored the week prior and die cut some more sentiments in gold paper. They are ready for assembly. I like having components ready to go so I can squeeze in some cardmaking in between other projects.

Another garden picture. Who did not prune her fruit trees? Yup.. me. They are the wild children in the background. They look like my hair in this humidity!!! I need a cool day and I will grab my husband and ladder and give them a trim. At the bottom of photo you can see some transplanted hydrangeas that are not blooming!! I am not sure if the transplant damaged them.

Last photo, from last night. It was wild winds yesterday and we opened all of the windows to let the cool air circulate. After dinner I had the urge to fill the house with heavenly scents so I made a Jamaican Toetoe Bread. It’s so simple and hit the spot!! I will eat a slice today with some tea for sure!

I hope you all are well. I will make my rounds tomorrow since I will be crafting with my friends later today.

Keep crafting!!
