What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday #586

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.

My desk today has some remnants from my Saturday Zoom Craft session. I worked on two things – cardmaking and scrapbooking. On my desk you will see my Copics I used to color some of the mermaid for my card. Do you remember that card background I made a few weeks ago with the circular tool to make bubbles. Well this is the card that I made using it. I made a variety of sentiments bubbles to add to the cards. You can also see my laptop has a new keyboard cover. I bought it thinking it would be fun to spruce up things while also making it easier during these Covid-19 times, to take off and clean regularly. I bought the turquoise ombre to go with the cool cover I showed you a few weeks ago.

Above, I was working on my OLW scrapbook. I am a little behind so I was working on the July prompt. I made my own cards instead of purchasing the available stamps. (See, I can exercise some restraint!) I printed some photos to go and just need to finish the journaling and then on to August quickly before September arrives.

I liked the cards I made so much that I decided to place it prominently on my desk to keep my mojo on high. I am one of those people that perfection can be paralyzing so I love seeing this visual reminder.

Our deal is that on Saturday’s I take a break from mom duties to spend the day and into the evening zoom crafting with my friends. So it was a pleasant surprise last Saturday when my husband went out and bought sushi for dinner. We ate it on the deck with a glass of wine.

Last week I had this lovely visitor. I always like to think that loved ones who has passed greet us through nature. So I think my mum was checking up on my garden when I saw this beautiful dragonfly.

Could someone tell me to stop shopping? I saw these amazing stencils and just had to have them. I want to use them with my distress oxide and then I would like to use them with my new Gel printing plate. I can see great opportunities to use both. If that isn’t enough, you can see the new stamps that arrived yesterday here.

I leave you with nature. I came home from shopping the other day to find several butterflies enjoying those tall Zinnias I showed you a week ago. They must really like them because they didn’t fly away while I snapped photo after photo. I am so happy because I did not see as many Monarch butterflies, as usual, this year. I can’t wait to catch up with you ladies. I hope your week was a good one.
