WOYWW - Merry Christmas!


Hello all, a quick post to say Merry Christmas and to share a picture of my Christmas Tree and my strings of cards(a few handmade ones courtesy of my Craftrak friends, thank you guys!)

Absolutely nothing going on with my desk this week so I haven't even taken a photo sorry (you get the tree instead!) It's way too cold to even go in the conservatory really, although I am going to have to brave it soon as

a) Need to tidy it up and sweep all the paper and glitter off the floor in time for Christmas day as it is visible from the dining room!

b) Need to make a 30th Birthday card

Maybe if it warms up a bit in the next couple of days!

Just remains for me to say I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and New Year. Thank you for your visits to my blog this year and for the friendships I have made along the way :-)

WOYWW


I'm typing this on Tuesday night and the photos are actually from last Friday and Saturday, so hope you don't mind?! I won't have much time in the morning but have plenty of time tonight as am home alone as hubby currently stranded at work due to the snow :-( He thinks he may have to stay there all night as all the roads are closed but I am hoping not!

Anyway, as you can see from the photo of my crafty corner in the conservatory, it's not really possible to stay in there for long at the moment. It hadn't been too bad with the heater on up until Friday morning and then this was the scene which greeted me - ice on the INSIDE of the windows, eek!

Anyhow, I have moved back inside onto the dining room table and did manage to make a couple of cards last night (one of them in the previous post). This shot is of all my Christmas cards, just need to get on with writing them all now!

Hurrah, an end to the Christmas cards!


I've been putting the glitter away this week and getting back to stocking up on cards for other occasions, hurrah! Here is a quick one I made last night for a colleague at work, last minute card for her mother in law. I'm rather pleased with the flowers which I got from Create and Craft (don't usually do telly shopping, but couldn't resist these). They are plastic and you heat them with a heat gun and they go all curly. The only thing I'm struggling with a bit is moulding them before they go hard again, but not bad for a first attempt?!

I'm going to enter this card into the following challenges:

Totally Gorjuss - sketch
Patties - Ribbon plus 3 embellishments (paper ribbon plus glitter, gem and ribbon bow)

Off to brave the snow and ice on the way to work again now!
