WOYWW - 15 December

Ack! How did it get to be Wednesday again?!!

I really must blog something other than WOYWW at some point! :lol: I've just had so much going on with illness and pregnancy and people visiting etc and crafting has just not been happening very much!

However... it's Wednesday again and it's time to share what's on my workdesk:


The chaos here is actually the in-progress production line for my christmas cards (with my prototype sitting there for reference! :lol:). I had intended to get them all finished and posted by yesterday but I've had unexpected houseguests for the past couple of days... a really good friend who moved to Scotland a few months ago texted me on Monday feeling a bit fed up as she was home alone with her little boy as her hubby was working away all week... my hubby works away during the week too so I said she'd be welcome to come stay with me if she wanted... so on the spur of the moment we decided "Why not?" and she packed up the car and drove down to Yorkshire! :) It's been absolutely lovely to see her again and so nice having company... and great for the little ones to play together again.

So naturally I've been spending my evenings chatting and catching up instead of crafting! However, I only have a few cards left to make so I will crack on with them this evening and hopefully get them posted out tomorrow.

Another photo I have to share with you is some goodies that haven't made it as far as my desk yet - they only arrived yesterday:


Finally, it's my freebie ProMarkers! I took out a magazine subscription 2-3 months ago and the subscription gift was this set of ProMarkers... and it's taken them all this time (and several chasing emails/phone calls!) for them to get them to me. But I finally have them! Yaaaaay! Can't wait to play. Once the Christmas cards are done! :lol:

Sorry I didn't make it around many of the WOYWW entries last week... I had every intention to but, as described above, I've been somewhat preoccupied! I hope to get around a lot more desks this week. If you're new to WOYWW, you can find the full list of desks to visit here at Julia's Stamping Ground blog.

Hope you all have a great week and I look forward to checking out everyone's desks!

Yes, Ali, how did it get to Wednesday again, so quick! I think after all that's been going on in your life it must have been good for you to relax with your friend. And, isn't it good to have something to look forward to playing with after the Christmas cards are done :) Elizabeth #71 this week!

It is good to catch up with friends...maybe you could draw inspiration from your lovely chats. Won't you be glad when it is all over and we can make Spring projects again.

How wonderful you and your friend had some me time together. I hope someone gives me some money I can invest in getting a few Promarkers, since I can't seem to win any. LOL #79

Spontaneous week long sleepovers - love it, so worth not crafting for! And talk about while the cats' away the mouse will buy a shed load of PMs!! Enjoy!
