Every now and then one of my nieces sends me images of old blog posts and she has been asking me to add something new for awhile. So, at her request here is a what’s on my desk post.
Couple of peg boards cut into mountain shape. We used these for one of my nieces birthdays as a donut wall.
Gnome candle from one of my nieces. It smells so good — I never burn so it will last longer.
Little cut out of my niece who wanted a new blog post. We made this years ago as a school project for her. Sometimes it’s at my desk, sometimes is somewhere in the work room. Since she can’t be here in person it’s fun to have around.
Planners for the year. For the past few years I have been using a weekly planner, but I realize that isn’t what I need right now. This year I am using a monthly planner to mark anything tied to a specific date. I couldn’t decide which planner I wanted to use, so I am starting with two and at some point soon one will become the front runner. Along with the planners I am using a notebook to write down anything that needs to get done.
Wacom tablet and Rollo label printer. I’ve been using a tablet for so long I am not sure I would even be able to use a mouse if I had to.
Assortment of pens and markers currently being used.
Simple sign I painted years ago on a random piece of wood I had handing around. The other side says “work work work”. It’s partly there to cover up cords.
Happy 2020! Here’s a desktop download for your January. The pattern is from the 2020 pattern calendar. This year’s calendar is based on the theme of road trips and exploring. One of my favorite parts about camping is the stars in the sky you get to see when you get away from city lights.
Happy April! Here’s a desktop with little seedlings to remind you it’s spring. The weather is getting warmer, the days are longer and soon there will be flowers in bloom.
This seedling pattern is the one that reminds me most of my grandma. Her and my grandpa were farmers and grew tons of vegetables. Some of my favorite childhood memories are of my grandma in the greenhouse tending to her thousands of little seedlings.
Happy March. Here’s a little something to update your screens with.
Like most of the patterns for the 2019 calendar, the pattern for this month was inspired by my grandma. She would make granny square blankets with yarn leftover from other projects. Most of them were black with colorful flowers inside the squares. I don’t know where any of those blankets are now, but whenever I see one I remember her crocheting away and making those little squares.
Behind my computer you can see my small seedling set up – I’m trying to channel my grandma’s natural ability to grow anything.🌱
