What's On Your Workdesk this one hundred and eighty third Wednesday then? Mine is bathed in terrible yellow early light. It's black as pitch out there. Still, I need an early start today anyway, so I guess so far, so good!
Actually, my desk shows signs of a couple of things being nearly finished, which is all to the good. The heart shape cookie cutters have been backed with scrapbook papers and the inside edges have a line of glitter glue around them, now drying. Extra stick and bling in one job. It's gotta help. I used my trusty cropadile to punch a pair of holes in the top of each cutter so that when finished, they'll hang as an ornament. Not in this house of course, these are destined to be a gift. Unplanned. Just had one of those flashes of 'oh, she'd probably really like that' when I was talking to someone who has become a bit of an influence in my life. I'll show you in daylight when they're properly finished. Meanwhile the inkpad and assorted triangle shapes are involved in making a handful of quick cards featuring bunting. Thank you type cards. Again, not for me, but jolly useful nonetheless. At extreme right you can see a tester paint pot. It's plain old emulsion called 'Putty'. I bought it because Peggy and Patsy seem to start all of their great works with something this colour. Yep. Watch and learn! No really, at this stage I haven't even taken the lid off!
Oh, and if you're looking for a charity to support because you're sending hand made cards this year, here's one you might consider...it supports Ayla and her WOYWWer Mum, and I just know that she's too nice to ask! Challenge Santa at CHAS.
So show us do, how your desk is coping with the lead up to the big Ho Ho Ho. Is it overwhelmed, panicking and covered in wrapping stuff? That could so easily be mine by the weekend! Post to your blog, and link your WOYWW titled post here. Give us a chance to visit - unlike Santa, we don't need Milk and Cookies. But we wouldn't turn 'em down, you understand.
