What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday #293

Hello, Crafters!! :D Welcome to another bare it all Wednesday! Julia from The Stamping Ground is hosting yet another Looky-Loo into the lives and desks of crafters around the world. So.Much.Fun!!! Lots to see and tons of inspiration to be had!!!

My desk this week:
I got in some new goodies!! Because, yeah...I didn't have enough before, right?? But, is there ever enough??? NO! Some of the newest Lawn Fawn stamps (and yes, I got the dies too!) and some dies from My Favorite Things. I really, really am trying to be "good", but these were just irresistible!! You'll see some older stamps on the left side of my desk, still waiting to be used, and some dies I found when I was looking for something else, lol! I cleaned up some paper and scraps off my desk, so it's a bit neater this week. I also got in some new glue, and a new glue dispenser. It's AWESOME!!! So great for very fine lines and intricate die cuts. I got it from My Favorite Things HERE. As soon as I'm finished with the cards I started last week, I plan to continue my coloring theme, but with my Prismacolor pencils instead of Copics.

These are the dies I "found" when I was looking for others. Definitely perfect for spring cards!

And last week's images became these cards:


I just have to finish coloring these, and whip them into the last of my "winter" cards. I wasn't able to get as many Christmas cards out as I wanted to, so I'm making up these instead. That way they aren't late! ;)

And since this is already too long, I'll just brag a bit about last night's dinner! It was DELISH!
Rosemary Balsamic Pork Loin
Recipe can be found HERE.

I'm so glad you were able to pop in for a visit! I hope you'll leave a comment before you head off to the next desk. Happy Crafting!!!

glendabrooks.blogspot.com said...

I'm seriously trying to limit my spending this year to just new dies and card stock. I have so much here to play with and will never use it all before I die! It is time to use my hoard! I love your new stamps and dies...have fun with them!

Zsuzsa Karoly-Smith said...

That's just below the belt with the yummy roast, LOL! I've just had my tasteless porridge for lunch! Very cute cards Jeannie and I love your new stash! I'm trying very hard to resist the temptation to buy anything this year! But it's soooo haaaard! Happy WOYWW! zsuzsa @ InkyDinkyDoodle #47

Fiona@Staring at the Sea said...

Some lovely crafting goodies there. I like the set of dies with the speech bubble and moustache. It looks very useful. Great idea to send winter themed cards. I've sent New Year ones in the past for the very same reason.

Fiona #18

Linda said...

A very tidy looking space - I agree you can never have enough stamps and dies LOL.

Pork looks delicious.

MaggieC (Silvercrafter) said...

I am now very hungry. That pork looks delicious and so tempting. Great cards, all of them, and I hope you get them all finished as you wish. Have a good week and enjoy that pork. xx Maggie #27

Diana Taylor said...

Ooh, I love new goodies too - you can never have enough! The oval ornate die is absolutely gorgeous and I now feel tempted to go on a spending spree for spring themed crafty bits (but not until I've sat down to a lovely roast dinner! Your blog post is full of temptation this week!!! Hope you have a great week,
Diana #41

Angela Radford said...

Hi Jeannie, had to grin when you said you found the dies when looking for others, we need blinkers when shopping Lol!

Happy crafty week, Angela x 33

Ah, now I know what the glue applicators are called I can start looking for them in the UK. I've seen people using them and they look great.
Happy Wednesday,

p.s. umm, I'll be round for dinner in a couple of hours :D

Nannie4 said...

Woo-hoo! Thanks for the recipe. I've bookmarked that one. Sorry, I LOVE food, so I had to get that out of the way first!
The butterfly arch die is a beauty. On a hunt for that one. Your cards are adorable. Your desk is entirely too tidy! I could mess that for you very quickly.....
{LOL} Thanks for your visit. Happy WOYWW

Krisha said...

Well, I see that I am NOT the only one that has new toys to play with.....LOL

Adore your Magnolia cards!!

I'll check out that recipe too, thanks for sharing and for the earlier visit.

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

Oh goodness. All those new stamps and dies look fabulous. I'm really impressed. I like how you staged these, too.

Thanks for visiting me while I slept. Happy WOYWW from # 2.

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

Forgot to mention, even though I'm a vegetarian, the herbs and such in that crusty piece sound wonderful.

lisa said...

I see what you mean...new stash is lovely, I'm finding it so hard to sit on my hands especially after seeing all the gorgeous new stash at the CHA this week.
Love the cards you've finished and wow, Xmas cards for next year, now that's what I call organised.
Your pork loin looks delish!!
Thanks for popping by earlier.
Hugs Lisax #38

Princess Judy Palmer said...

Mmmmm...! Bacon. Your pork loin looks so yummy. Of course I've been on the BRAT diet (bland food because of intestinal issues), I think catfood would look good right now--not saying your loin is on par with that AT ALL! Lots of fun new Lawn Fawn stash. They have so many wonderful things that I can't ever decide what to get. It is a wonder I have any Lawn Fawn stuff. The images from last week made up into wonderful cards! Happy playing! Judy #74

Deanna said...

Every time I see your new goodies, you send me shopping! So far I have only added things to a growing wish list. Your cards are beautiful as always and that pork loin definitely looks yummy!

Emma Made said...

I really popped by to have a sneak peek of your desk, but yum! Your dinner looks delicious! x

Sue said...

Loads of fab stash there.

Loving the cards.

That roast looks almost too good to eat:)

Thanks for stopping by my blog.

Happy WOYWW

Hey Jeannie thanks for swinging by, the Israel trip is so amazing, as Tel Aviv has long been on my bucket list. You are enabling me..I am now going on a hunt for that floral half circle die of yours and I will be 'instructing' Hubby that I need the Pork dish in my life. Cx #70

Rhonda H said...

Hi Jeannie! Thanks for stopping by my blog for WOYWW this week!

I was going to say something about your nice neat desk and cute cards and then I saw the pork loin and I was a gonner!! THAT looks soooooo delish! I need to get one and make it! And now I can say, cute cards and nice to have new stuff even though we all have a lot isn't it? LOL

Rita said...

I had just put some fineline tip bottles in my Amazon wish list a few days ago. I'm really curious as to how well those work. They look awesome!

You have even more wonderful playthings!! Guess who got my package from Dick Blick today!! Thanks so much!!

You really have the patience for coloring. They look great, too. :)
