What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 342

Well Deskers, time is marching on and you know how hard it is to find desk time in the Holiday Season. Not so Chez Dunnit!
I must have forgotten or neglected something, but until I remember what, I'm OK about being at my desk. And I'm working on next year's workshops already. To say I'm a bit smug would be to really understate it. Sorry! It is a bit of a mess, but I'm happy with it! Not all evidence of Christmas has gone  - there's the red ribbon and bakers twine that I used to tart up a candle/jar thing yesterday....and the solitary card on the iPad stand. No evidence of music or spoken word accompanying me. No. Miss Dunnit and her Musician are home and they're watching naff movies on tv, and I love to listen to them groaning and laughing over them!  So if you can steal five minutes from your preparations, please share your desk with us. If you can't, we more than understand! If you don't visit this blog on any day other than a Wednesday, I wish you a happy Christmas. Whatever you're doing, do it with love!

A very Happy Christmas to you and the family, too Julia! I am liking the look of the workshop prep on your desk - well done for planning ahead! Helen xx

Consider five minutes stolen, Julia. Love the card on your desk this morning.
Have a fantastic Christmas - whether things are forgotten or not isn't important - just enjoy being together round a celebratory table.
Take care. God bless.
Margaret #1 How did I ever get to that place?!

Merry Christmas Julia!!! The baker's twine on your desk reminds me that I have not found the 3 spools of baker's twine I bought. This is not readily available in the Philippines and when it is, it is very expensive! So I really have to find it! As you know I am always happy to see a mess!!! Happy WOYWW!! patsy

Wishing you and yours a very Wonderful Christmas. I see you have no snow either. Very strange weather here. But on the nicer side. I'll keep a little of the Christmas music playing, time went too fast, I don't think I even played all my CD's. The NEW YEAR is not that far away. Maybe I should get started on my ATC's and get them to you before you have your gathering.
ENJOY the Festivities.

Lovely to have Miss D home - is the romance serious then?
There is a change in my desk, well there will be shortly as I remembered I need another card and pronto. Set the alarm early and now am going to disappear into the realm of peace (my craft room) and create chaos again with the die cutter. That is if I can find the die that is going around in my head. Did I get that one?
Have a wonderful Christmas and all the best for 2016.
Hugs, Neet xx 10ish xx

Your desk looks well loved today, dear Julia. And I can't begin to believe GREEN grass outside your door. Are you sure you live in England, not the Mediterranean?

I hope you, Mr. D, Miss D., Music Man, and anyone else who shows up, have a wonderful Christmas. I also hope you get to see your folks during that time, too. Having everyone together must make you very happy. It feels festive to me!

Lunch Lady Jan said...

Steady on...that's a bit organised! You haven't even got a deadline..... :-D
Happy Christmas, dear old Mucker...hope it's a good 'un!
Hugs, LLJ 11 xx

Lynn Holland said...

Number 15 is right. So sorry.
Have a lovely Christmas the Dunnit family. May it be filled with goodness all day xx

Mrs.D said...

Morning Julia.
I know what you mean about having time to spare, I think Christmas being on a Friday means that I was more or less ready last weekend and then have spare time to do whatever I want. Enjoy the time, you probably haven't forgotten anything so just relax and let the mojo go to town.
Have a great Christmas.

Good morning Julia....I did try to show you my desk but couldnt find it sorry.....I do have some rather nice floors in the new part of the bungalow though so my desk can wait :-) I really do hope you and your lovely family have a great Christmas and 2016 brings you all you wish for yourself. Biggest hugs.

Sending wonderful Christmas wishes to you and yours during this joyous holiday season! I notice you don't have snow either; here in the Southern US we are expecting 70 degrees and rain. Very unusual!

Lisca Meijer said...

You can be proud of yourself! Thinking ahead, and preparing stuff while you have 5 minutes and while you are in the mood for it.

It must be great to have daughter + musician home. That'sone of the nice things about Christmas.

Wishing you and yours a verylovely and peaceful Christmas,
Blesins,
Lisca

Diana Taylor said...

I love the card - such a refreshing change to see something other than green and red at the moment, and I love the grasses/seedhead stamps - absolutely beautiful. I feel a mauve moment coming on! I hope you have a wonderful Christmas,

Shaz Brooks said...

Hi Julia, Here's hoping you have a lovely Christmas, with warm wishes from both of us to all of you, Shaz xxx

Elizabeth said...

Hi Juli, love your card - reminds me of Spring which I'm hoping is just around the corner :) You wouldn't want to see my desk, really you wouldn't, it's currently strewn with the fallout from last minute cardmaking but I hope you'll enjoy my post this week all the same. Wishing you a wonderful holiday. Hugs, Elizabeth x #40

Have a very merry Christmas! Now, I know you guys have interesting words to describe things -- but what are naff movies? Tee hee

I'm late in joining in because I was having all kinds of trouble. Better late than never!

Hugs,
Kay

Your desk is still busy, just like the majority of us trying to finish up projects. I hope you have a wonderful Christmas!

sandra de said...

Now that looks like a lovely card that is coming to life on your desk. I think we all have found a way of keeping those much needed craft tools on our desk no matter what we are working on. Thanks Julia for another year of woyww and I wish you and your family a wonderful christmas and new year..

I somehow find it disheartening that more people who linked up didn't stop by to visit you.

I hope you and your entire family have the most wonderful Christmas. Your kindness has shown from Day 1 that I "met" you. You deserve the honor of being Queen, if only for one day a week!
