What's On My Workdesk This Week--Which Workdesk?

Yesterday we watched my little nephews all day, and pictured here is the remains of what was a very busy, very fun card-making session. I had the leaf up on the table, and let them have a go at fun scrapbook papers and cardstock, glue, stickers, stamps and wavy scissors (they are 7 and 9 years old) and they had a blast making birthday cards for grandma and my daughter. The cards were creative and beautiful--so proud of their work!

This is exactly what my creative corner looks like today
 In the meantime, I had to enjoy a sunny nook on the deck this morning (I'm going back after I post this) and I'm working on my "June To Do List" project, and knitting some little dresses that will be embellished and will hang on a little clothesline. It's yet another great way to use scrap yarn!

What's on your workdesk today? Blog about it and join in on the WOYWW blogparty here.

My new laptop station is looking nice--it's where I can now stand to work on my computer, instead of sitting so much. I've also made my ribbon board above it more accessible so that I can use it more, and change it up more often.

I have so many workspaces going on this morning--so I have to stay focused on what I'm doing next! I have some birthday cards to make, myself, and then it's back to the paperdoll project to get that finished up because my mom wants one!

  3. You certainly have been busy, it is so much fun to craft with little ones, they have no inhibitions - great. Love all your pics, especially Minnie, our Wotchit looked identical, but sadly she is no longer with us. Happy WOYWW, Anne x #24

  4. Can't wait till my little one is old enough to enjoy crafting with mama. Happy WOYWW!

  5. Hello Sandy....what a busy home you have. How wonderful. My daughter always tells me that our home always feels so full of energy....I can imagine your home does also. Very sweet little Minnie. How nice to have animals who enjoy just being with us. I'm off to check out more of your blog! Happy WOYWW!

  6. That sunny spot looks like a good place to hang out and waste the day, or be curled up with a good book (and chill with Minnie). The little knit dresses are so sweet! Looks like you had a great creative time with your nephews!

  7. Now if I had a beautiful pink garden chair like that, I'd never move!! I love it :) Glad you had a good time crafting with your nephews - what fun!
    Hugs, LLJ #70 xx

  8. Looks like you got it all sorted! Great fun crafting with children. Take care my WOYWW friend, am still snooping, all but a little late! Zo xx

  9. Hi! First time I've been to your space, very cute. I like the ribbon board,a dn the idea of standing at the computer, good for your back I bet!

  10. What a kind Aunty you are. Making mess is what boys love. When my nephews were little, I used to mind them in the long Summer holidays.They LOVED making things.They even remember those days, and recently told me how much they loved staying with me. These are men in their 30's and 40's!!
    I'd love to sit at your making table!
