Wednesday Workdesk

Today I thought I would switch it up a bit. I’m still trying to catch up from being in Florida last week. I got to spend a week at my Mom and Dad’s house with my nephews for their Spring Break. We went to Islands of Adventure one day, soaked up some sun (in morning hours only, with 80 SPF sun block of course, as I am a melanoma survivor…), ate some good food and played lots of card games.

There was no time for scrapbooking the entire trip so I’ve been busy in my craft room the last few days. Today, I thought I’d give you a peek:

I’m working on updating my Everyday Life Project. I don’t have many prints to put in the album yet (I just need to upload to Shutterfly and get them printed). I have an HP PhotoSmart printer that I really like, but I prefer to use it for enlargements or smaller photos and things I need right away. I am trying to keep up-to-date on the journaling and ephemera and that’s what I’m working on today!

In a few weeks, I’ll do an in-depth post on my progress (as soon as I get the photos printed!).

Today I’m linking up at the Stamping Ground. If you want to take a peek at other’s work desks, check it out here.

Thanks for stopping by today!

  1. ooh your desk looks much tidier than mine! I was down to about a 4″ square of space to create in after scrapping the past few days away – funny really – cos normally I am a super neat scrapper. It was driving me nuts! LOL

    • How do you work in a 4″ square? I’m not sure I could do it! LOL.

  2. That looks like a fun project Tammy! Oh we will be visiting Islands of Adventure soon, can’t wait; did you go to Harry Potter (I am looking forward to this way more than my kids), that’s if we survive the 17 hours+ total flying time! Good luck catching up with your project!

    • Harry Potter – YES! It’s inside Islands of Adventure. It was soooooo cool. My Mom and I were the same way, we were dying to get there and my nephews just shrugged it off. We drank butterbeer and ate at the 3 broomsticks. Great experience! 🙂

  3. I have keep up with recording things on the cards and taking photos but I have not put it together for 2 months. So someday I will be able to sort it out 🙂

    • At least you’re keeping up with the hardest parts. I’m looking forward to getting a couple months of photos printed so I can really see how it’s turning out. I’m enjoying it so much better this time around. 😀

  4. How fun! Loved looking at your workdesk! Since I did some pages inspired by project life over the weekend, I have a whole new outlook on them!

    • I really like doing it now that I’m not in a mindset of “must take a photo every day”. It’s so much better to just be easy with it. No photo? No problem. Add a postcard or something else. Or skip that day. And I also have started embellishing mine more because that’s what I like. Love the look of minimal, but it’s not me. So as long as you tailor the project to suit you, it’s so much fun! 🙂

  5. Ohhh Florida! As I am stuck in rainy WA, I am totally envious! Looks like a fun mess! Can’t wait to see what you create! Thanks for sharing what’s on your desk!

    • I feel your pain. It’s rainy, cold and grey in Nashville today. Sigh. It was in the 80’s with bright sunny skies most of the time in Florida. I’m seriously missing it already….

  12. Looks like your everyday life project is coming along nicely. I’m looking forward to seeing some completed pages once you get your phots printed.

    • As soon as I get the photos printed! I always wait a few months until I have enough to make it worth the order and free shipping! 🙂 I’m planning several “update” posts at the end of April. Stay tuned………

  13. How fun! I wish I had the time to do this but certainly not this year. Maybe someday. I bet it is fun.
    Looks great! I know what ya mean about pics. I have a ton to load and get printed.
    Blessings,Pea

    • It does add a layout of “extra” stuff to do, but every day memories are pretty important and this is such an easy way to get it done. If you can find the time, start it! You’ll never regret it. Even if you only do it for a month and then stop, you’ll be happy for what you did have time for. Or do a week here and a week there, when you do have time. It’s so flexible! 😀

  14. Very nice. I took a 9 week trip to the UK and Europe (stayed in 14 countries) in 2004 and took loads of digital pictures but I think the most fun I had was compiling my ‘trash’ books. I kept bits and pieces of trash in notebooks that we don’t normally see in the states ie sugar swills, tea bag tags, etc. People had more fun looking at my ephemera than the did the pictures I took! A funny thing was about half way through the trip I had completed 2 -3ring binders and wanted to ship them back to the states but it was going to cost $200 I bought a rolling book bag and I carried through the trip! Thanks for sharing. Vickie #83

    • Your “trash” books sound fantastic! I love to save bits and pieces like that. When I traveled in Europe last year I saved a few things here and there but now I wish I had done more. Hopefully there will be a next time! 🙂 Thanks for the cool idea!

  15. I love the look of your desk, so full of lovely bright colours and your book looks wonderful.
    I’ve just had a browse through the rest of your blog, being a Scrapbooker too, although gettting very little time to do any lately, and you have some gorgeous pages and very interesting posts.

  16. Looks like we run in a lot of the same circles and you are as much of an online class junkie as I am! How do you keep up with it all?

    • Well…right now I’m unemployed. That probably accounts for most of it. 😆 I work part time just to get out of the house a bit. I was laid off from my corporate job awhile back and I decided to take some time off and enjoy life for a bit before I go back to work. Things will change when I go back to work full time. Which will be soon because the savings only lasts so long….
