Whats on Your Workdesk Wednesday #93

Today I was allowed to borrow Kai's "Learning Journey" book to look through, its like a scrapbook to show what they can do and have learnt. Its filled with artwork he's done that show certain skills, photos taken on days out, special occassions etc. With so many prescious memories in it I took this opportunity to scan some of the pages ... we may be given the book when he leaves pre-school but some have to be sent to off as proof of what the children do, so I am being prepared! You can therefore see on the table (notice I have a much nicer black tablecloth on, woohoo!! wipe clean as well ;-) my laptop and scanner. While they were out I also fished out any photos I had that needed scanning as I hate using the original photos with scrapbooking incase I make a mistake.It also means I can play with the contrast, colours, share & print out as many as I want. These are the first pile you can see. The next pile is a scrapbooking page I am preparing, then behind that is some cardboard recycling I have sorted out ready to pop outside for collection ..... please ignore that pile :)

The blue tub at the back is my beads & jewellery making items that I want to play with this week as well as my craft robo. I've barely played with it since getting it & I am really going to make the effort to learn the tricks of the trade to get some amazing effects. Anyone know of any sites to get ideas & tips from?

Hows about going over to Julias site to have a look around some more Workdesks, mine is #142


  1. Your desk is very techy today, it's quite intimidating! lol What's a Craft Robo?

    Have a great WOYWW,

  3. I mean't to add the Craft Robo website have some fab tips & tutorials, plus lots of ideas & projects :)

  4. Scanning photos always worthwhile but always a little tedious! Good to know that you've managed to scan the school book - precious memories - I've turned some of my son's into scrapbook pages. I love the two bags of apples and the box of bud in the background made me giggle

  5. I'm having a really busy week but am quickly dropping by to make sure all our WOYWW friends get the chance to win the last of our weekly draws before the BIG one over in our blog shop. Pop over and join in the fun. Good luck.

  6. They do something like that in Ruby's nursery - there's pictures of them busy during their working day too. I would much rather they took more photos like that and my pay for them than those official posed ones that I really don't like that much. I love seeing little glimpses into their live's when I'm not there.

  7. Busy desk! Lots of electronic stuff to deal with. Sorry I am so late getting around this week. Thanks for sharing. Vickie #52

  8. Great stuff on that desk! I especially like the apples and the Box of Bud. TFS
