What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday #759

 Morning deskers, welcome to our weekly Wednesday Blog Hop - WOYWW. Here's the link to the one responsible, the lovely Julia at Stamping Ground - pop on over and join in, see what it's all about and join in yourself.

Oh boy, just 5 more sleeps to the big day! I hope that everyone has done everything they need to do and are just finding some time to enjoy the season and relax with family and friends.

I admit I have never been this organised. I was a bit late out of the gate with a couple of things but I am all done now, and I actually have time to do a bit of housework and sorting. The reason for this is that as a family we are not doing presents AT ALL this year and I am not hosting on Christmas Day. It takes the stress out of the whole thing. I can really recommend it, and tbh although our Christmas will be quiet I am quite looking forward to that as this year seems to have passed at breakneck speed. But, to business....

The desk is pretty empty but in order to have a photo of something I have taken out the projects from the workshop I attended at the end of October that still need to be completed. There is a Christmas House,  a little snowman, a church 'window' and a rather funky hanging decoration that needs to be finished. They won't be done before Christmas but will be something to play with over the holidays when I have a minute and the inclination.




One of the reasons for the busy year has of course been this little chap. So I'll finish with Christmas greetings from my own little festive character.



Merry Christmas!! Love n hugs Cindy xx

What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday # 757

Here's my desk this week.

I am prepping for a class on Friday, a really simple card idea pinched from Lou Collin's 5 minute makes series and using up scraps, my favourite kind of project. I  enjoyed cutting up all this colourful card on a grey afternoon (yesterday).

Sorry I missed last week, emergency babysitting and still prepping for my craft fair and then my birthday weekend meant it seemed sensible to skip a week rather than not get round. I did very well at the fair but only sold a few 50p cards from my box of ones I don't like and those I realise I have had for over 3 years........ People still love a bargain it would seem!! (My cards are NOT expensive!!) Still, gotta know your market and  overall this was the best I have ever done at this venue.




The craft fair was in a church hall and was so so so very very cold. I got home around 4 and don't think I stopped shivering till after 6. I should have taken my heated gilet but tbh I forgot all about it until after lunch!! 

Feeling pretty tired and meh this week after all the frivolities. Still haven't got a tree up (not until after my birthday - them's the rules!!) but I do have lots of lunches, coffees and catch ups planned the next couple of weeks so I'm just taking each day as it comes. Have a great week, 

love n hugs Cindy xx

Here's my happy little Splodge, 9 months old this week. How?
