Here is a non traditional Christmas card - it is, really - see it has a snowman's face and 'Cool' and 'Yule' written on it as proof...it's for Susie and Vikki's challenge again, another one for my box - oh my, I'm so organised I might start writing in them as well!
I had done some catching up and was sort of patting myself on the back about the state of my desk, but then it was WOYWW and good grief, so much to look at! Two things come to mind about 'the swing'; lots of us are making cards and a lot of us have a box to put them in, unused. We need an outlet!
Secondly, it strikes me that (with the odd exception) our stash is stored in a fairly ordered and tidy manner. I get the impression that you could 'go to' any particular item on demand. And that's a good thing! The desk/surface then, is the epicentre of creativity, where you can sort of 'let it all hang'. Ruthie said that she felt 'cleansed' after posting her WOYWW with swing.....I kinda get that - if affirmation is the subliminal reason for blogging, then WOYWW exposure is perhaps a bit of the old shared guilt thing! Works for me.
And talking of guilt - these inchies..A to D in alphabetical order (OK, ignore the 'let's) are for the weekly challenge over at Fiona's - I had and have every intention of playing but somehow the first 4 (weeks) got away from me! Huh? One inch square and you can't do 'em? I know! Problem here is that I need to have a use for them, I can't have them just sitting about - they'll end up in the bin out of frustration. So now I have (another) manilla notebook begging for decoration, ergo, suddenly I need to catch up with the challenge!
