What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday # 776

 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.

Well here we are again. This is my desk late Tuesday evening, slightly staged as I had started putting things away before I realised I needed to do my WOYWW post. 

I did warn you I was starting Christmas again! I still have a big project to finish from my craft retreat last October (!) but after wondering how I can possibly store it I decided to pack it up as is (in pieces) and finish putting it together for Christmas 2024. That project is made partly using die cuts from a lovely Stamperia paper pad called Christmas Patchwork. The artwork is so yummy I had to stop myself from buying a whole pad once I saw the few random sheets and embellies we were given. I had lots left over from my craft pack and I used it to put together these  cards. Really loving how  these turned out. And I still have a few more pieces to use up. Nothing has been wasted - the postage stamp punch came out again!! 


Here's my desk even later in the evening. I have been adding the finishing touches to some cards I put together at Craft Club this afternoon - once again mainly scraps and ends of paper kits I've had for ever so a using up stuff win for me once again. 



My main job on Wednesday will be WOYWW and packing before I go off once again for an InkC Craft Retreat with Countryview Crafts on Friday. The supplies list is  rather huge but I do have nearly all of it (won't stress about the rest) and I won't make the mistake of taking anything else to do in case I  have any spare time. Learnt my lesson there. 

Finally here's my little splodge looking tall and grown up with his cute crinkly nose when he smiles.  I can't tell you how much he makes me laugh. 

Have a good week, hopefully I will have lots to show you next time!!

Love n hugs, Cindyxx

My goodness, what a lot of cards you got from left overs from a project. I am thinking you bought a project you saw that had this Stamperia paper in it and once you had selected what you needed you had enough for these lovely cards left over. I am envious of your progress for Christmas. Well, a little.
As always seeing a photo of Lionel warms my heart and puts a smile on my face. He is always so happy in his photos. It must be a joy to be his grandma.
Hugs, Neet 3 xx
