What's on My Workdesk Wednesday 273? Kitting

Hello fellow desker.  Well it would seem that Wednesday is the day for it to bucket with rain!  We did have a beautiful weekend like an Indian Summer...long forgotten though it was only 2 days ago! Proof that the sun was shining is the photo below from a shoot I did of my son in the spring flowers on a field near my house on Saturday afternoon.
The top photo is my desk in all it's kitting glory!  I am busy cutting up the paper for each die and then I will sit and run them all through my Vagabond for a few hours...
 This is what my studio and desk looked like after I came back from teaching a class last Saturday!  Lunch Lady Jan...don't faint!  I know there is a machine on my desk, but all I used it for was to sew a line of stitching in the top of some lace for class to be able to gather it as the pre-gathered lace which I used on my sample is out of stock!  I use clear plastic containers to put all my kit stuff in as I plan the page and you can see todays desk kit on the pink e-craft (like a Silhouette) cutter all piled up and ready for prepping and another container with a kit in it waiting to be prepped on the machine cover below it on the floor!  A never ending set of containers in a not so orderly Q to be dealt with!
Here is a close up of my desk with the container that went to the store and still needs to be unpacked....

Designing, kitting, packing and unpacking is the name of the game around here.


  1. Ah, now he's been freed from captivity, you have to do some more sewing! Go on. You know you want to...grin. I always think sewing machines have personalities....some of these new dangled computerised jobs are like yuppies, always wanting bigger and better. Whereas mine is a plain, dependable sort...but like me!! Nowt fancy, but gets the job done!
    Gorgeous pic of your boy btw, that made me smile!
    Hugs, LLJ 20 xx

  2. Dangled?? Blooming auto FANGLED machines was what I meant to say!

  3. Hi Belinda, Happy WOYWW and it certainly look like you are very busy...I have enough fun making one card for myself without making kits but can imagine the fun time at the workshops. Cheers and have a great week, RobynO#24

  4. ah love the desky fun, Bella.. but trying to imagine me being organised enough to cut all card for dies then doing die cutting like that.. cant seem to think that far ahead..
    I do love the daisy shot with son.. that is a keeper, for sure.
    happy WOYWW Shaz in Oz.x #10 I think

  5. My goodness, your room looks very busy. I just finished making my kits. I love the design part, but oh boy is cutting kits my not favorite thing. Thank goodness for electric die cut machines. Have a most wonderful week. Oh, forgot, the photo of your little one is precious.

  6. Wonderful photo of your son Belinda. I'm glad spring has arrived for you. Your desk always looks so interesting. Yep I have a sewing machine too but rarely use it. I can't even make a straight line. Happy WOYWW

  7. Oh I wouldn't mind being at your desk. wow. I love all the papers and what you can do with it. Also put a splendid photo of your son in a special paper. Thank you so much for sharing.
