WOYWW 130

Here we are again with yet another week gone!  That means it's only one more week to DS1's birthday and 3 weeks (just over) to Christmas!

Here is my desk as of yesterday afternoon:

I had a little flurry of activity on Sunday and have finally started some Christmas cards!  All very simple at the moment and everything I used was done last year and are leftovers in my Christmas box - very useful when you are busy!  There are some new distress stains by my inks and some new stamps there on the left which I treated myself to from AFTH on black Friday (facing the wrong way sorry!) and the inka gold paint is there for me to make a decision about whether to email a complaint to them as its gone mouldy (went mouldy about 4 months ago but I keep forgetting about it) - other than that its all much of a muchness this week as I haven't had much time for crafting.

If you want to know why I am sharing my desk with the world then pop over to Julia's and join in the fun - be warned though it's very addictive and you will lose a few hours visiting other desks!

Thanks for looking - Worn out from Solihull

I have not started making my Crimbo cards, so you are way ahead of me. I like how you have your ink pads stored. Guess I've not noticed them before.

As someone who doesn't stamp, I was amazed to discover that ink can go mouldy?? How does that happen then? I'd complain definitely, cos they're not cheap, are they? Hope it gets sorted out..

Hello :) I cheated (a little) this year with my cards. I took my 12 days of Christmas entry scanned it, printed it off, matted it stuck it on to cards and stamped seasons greeting. Never done only one card before but at least it only took me 2 evenings, now just need to write em, sigh! Naughty bad ink.....

Neil said...

Hi there and thanks for the peek into your creative zone. It looks like there is loads going on so thanks for sharing. Hope you have a brilliant week and have plenty of creative time! I've not had that problem with my Inka but I know others who have; It's always worth writing in though, if no-one tells them how would they know?

Susan Flynn said...

Lots of creativity going on here. Love the look of your Christmas cards. Those street lamps look stunning - are they made from a die or a stamp, cause I've seen a die streetlamp which is really nice??

Busy and creative with everything in hand seems good to me! I've never heard of ink pads going mouldy so now you'll have to complain so we can all hear the result!

Great desk and I love Inka Gold so am taking your warning to heart and storing my 4 pots in the fridge. Just hope Mr B doesn't try to spread it on his toast.

Always complain if you have a problem - the company need to know. I love the card on your post below. x Jo #42

Michelle said...

Looks like you have lots of fun stuff going on there! Christmas cards will definitely keep you busy. Stinks about the ink going off like that. Definitely send your complaint along to the company. Hopefully they will replace it for you.

Simple is good for Christmas cards to avoid paying a fortune in postage. Simple is often more effective too. I like what I can see on your desk. You are not far from me. Thank you for your visit earlier and your kind comments. Don't forget the Craft Robo can work on the same software as the Silhouette, and that is constantly being updated.

Ali H said...

\hi thanks for stopping by earlier ! I've had mould on several of my inca gold paints but I have just wiped it off with a baby wipe & it seems fine to use !! At the price they are I'm not prepared to throw them in the bin!!

butlersabroad said...

Wow, mouldy Inka Gold, that'll add some texture! I got the inserts put in my cards at the weekend, just got to write them out now, another chore I hate, lol! Love making them, hate sending them!!

You are looking very busy there. I like the idea of using leftovers from last year for this years cards. I must remember that, I'm always dashing to make cards last minute.

Oooh lovely treats from AFTH, LOVE her stamps.

Neet said...

(Last week you said I confused you - Lounge Advent Calendar - Lego figures - that made me wonder if you had some chidren or some coming over).
Sorry to hear about the Inka product, would definitely email them with the query, too expensive for that to happen. You look kind of busy on your desk. Thanks for sharing - Hugs, neet 26
