Well it's Wednesday and this week - a special 2-for-1 offer as this is not the post I planned for today.
Got a bit mixed up on Monday, thought it was Tuesday and took a photo of my desk in the afternoon ready to post - this is what happens when you finish work, lose all sense of time/days etc.
Anyway, took another yesterday (Tuesday) before the light went and here it is, and still is this morning.
Penguin is from a pattern by the lovely Jozart and contains a chocolate bar, as do the bases of the half finished sleighs. These will be my place setting for Christmas lunch - only three of us this year but we will see StepD and family at the New Year.
New Memory Box dies for the rest of my Christmas cards (got a bit carried away with the plastic - oops!) and a gorgeous angel by ShazSilverwolf that popped through my letterbox at the weekend, isn't she glam, thanks Shaz.
Middle are two pretty little dollies I bought from Jo and Annie's shop, Molly and Polly arrived this morning and one is parcelled up ready to make her way to my Gdaughter Kitty, the other will be on my tree when I get it out at the weekend.
Nearly forgot - also there is my new Christmas present (from me, to me) a new iPad, yippee!!!
This is the photo you nearly got a day early - lots of brayered Christmas cards on this one, including some charity ones with 'Holly and Ivy' (you may have to zoom in for a better look) - reminds me of my Auntie Hilda who always, always wore a hat..
All the hand-made ones are brayered and most have die-cut poinsettias on the front.
I received a beautiful Christmas easel card from Neet (Hickydorums) at our last stamp club meet, all white with a silver-edged poinsettia and I knew I wanted to use this idea in mine, with the addition of some brayering and stamping thanks Neet.
That's(almost) it for this week but lots more desk to peruse over at Julia's Stamping Ground.
....and finally, just wanted to share a photo of Sorrel I took Tuesday morning on our walk, lovely frost day with clear blue skies, if only all winter could be like this.
Hope the rest of your week is a good one.
