I am late again but decided that I was going to make it to the party this week regardless of how late I was.  What party you say?  What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday of course!  Check it out at Stamping Ground where Julia has it all written out so you can participate too!

As you can see not much work is going on on my desk today.  It seems to have become the depository for all things you can't think of where else to put them.  When the urge hits I will sweep them into a box and shove it off to the side till they come back to the desk again!

A couple Easter tags I made....


Which came first the egg or the chocolate rabbit? 

I know they look alike and there is a reason for that!  I was teaching a class last week and someone saw the egg stamp and 'wondered' what a tag made like that would look like soooooo....I made one so she could see it!    I end up doing a lot of that here lately...what if's is what I call them...What if I change this up or that up...I wonder what would happen if... get the idea? 

I think spring is trying to sneak its way in to Oklahoma but old man winter keeps getting in and pushing back.  Last weekend I made this planter for my herb garden and two nights later had to cover it over to keep it from freezing...Won't be long and winter will truly be gone!!
If you are wondering what happened to the canvas that was on my desk last WOYWW I participated in check it out here!

Before I go I thought I would share a picture of me, my daughter and Brigita another WOYWW desker!  Brigita was in Oklahoma City taking a class and we got together for supper and had a great time visiting and sharing the evening. 
Have a great week!


  1. I'm a little later visiting today cos I've been cleaning, sorting and tidying [again] ready to put our house on with another estate to get this house sold!!

  6. Hi Vickie - I just love the rolls of ribbon above your desk, so much so I didn't notice what you've shoved there :) The two tags are super - great colours. And how nice to meet up with another desker ... you all look as though you were having a great time. Wishing you a wonderful Easter weekend. Elizabeth x #50

  13. Hi Vickie, love the tags! Its nice to meet another desker, I agree. The planter is a great idea, I saw that done on Pinterest somewhere, and thought it was worth trying too. Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz # 34 xx

  14. Great pics, we have finally had some lovely warm Spring weather here, I sat up the garden and even put my Fitflops on. But then today, the cloud has covered over and there's a nip in the air. Guess the old saying 'Don't cast it out, till May's out' is right, or so my nan used to say! Fab WOYWW, yes I'm a tad late but hey ho & hope you have a great weekend. Take care Zo xx 53

I also spy some great butterflies on your desk this week ..they are huge ...thanks for sharing and hope your herbs dont get damaged by the frost( I like your tiered planter arrangement as it is here still a bit unpredictable have a very happy Easter hugs Andrea #24

  17. Hi Vickie,

    How nice to get together with another WOYWWer! It looks like you had a nice dinner and visit.

    The tags are great. I like the "what if" projects! Very cool.

    Ugh, we've had a hard freeze twice here this week. My lilac has started blooming so I'm hoping that everything continues on its way to green and not shrivel up.

    Happy belated WOYWW
    peace, Kay (13)

  18. Hi Vickie that's a novel idea with the planter. It will definately be chocolate first in my house on Sunday .... After over 6 weeks without. Love the tags

  19. Hi Vicki! Great tags! And we are sisters at heart! I do the same when I need to use my desk!! ha ha! Patsy from

  20. Thanks for sharing the photo of the three girls. Your weather and ours is all mixed up I guess. We have had sunshine again today but then it dulls over another day and I don't think it knows yet what to stay as.

    Not to worry, it is Easter and so Happy Easter to you and yours.
    Hugs, Neet 28 xx

  21. Beautiful tags!! Spring is the same here. We had 30 degrees a few mornings ago and a couple days before that it was 80. Today 50 and chilly. What is going on?! Brigita #58
