Here is a picture of my desk actually taken this morning and not the day before!  Bit easier when you get up a bit later isn't it!

Card there is a new home one for my Nan who moved into a nursing home last Thursday - haven't had chance to go and visit her yet with the children been off but she is settling in ok.

That roll up piece of kitchen roll at the back there is full of new coins! whoo hoo and the twine you see at the right hand side of the table is the expensive one from Hobbycraft (just thought I would share that!) and the little mushrooms beside it were also a Christmas present - they are little pots of rubbers and I got three of them as the children couldn't decide on which colour to get!  they will make little pots to keep "things" in and feed my mushroom addiction nicely!

If you are wondering why I am sharing a picture of my desk with the world then please pop over to Julia's where all be revealed!

Hope you all had a great Christmas.

Thanks for looking - a mushroom fan from Solihull

Found your mushrooms after enlarging the picture and I'd love a picture of your Santa in the chimney - enquiring minds want to know what it is now. Sorry.
What a lovely card you are making for your nan, I always struggle with new Home cards so now you have given me an idea - might get some done so I have a stock for next time.
May I take this opportunity of wishing you and your family a Lovely 2012. Hugs, Neet #4 xx
