WOYWW 183 and a Toot!

Hi everyone,
I wasnt going to join in today even though I am planning a crafty day in my dining room but I have just seen that I have had a mention on T!ms blog and its put me in an incredibly happy mood that I feel that I can conquer the world! (that and I am addicted to peeking at others mess - sorry creativeness!)  plus I need some inspiration..... mojo has seriously left me these past few days although I have been doing an online Christy Tomlinson course and my normal painting class on Fridays so its not all bad!

Anyway here is my desk/dining room table:


as you can see not much craftiness going on!  I have printed out T!ms december tags there to get on with today and the pagemaps sketches were used to make a card yesterday but I have had to move that in case the recipient reads this!  The snowflake has been sitting there for almost two weeks - its part of a Christmas Tree decoration I am making similar to T!ms rosettes one last year - the tin is full of my handmade Christmas cards and a couple we have already received - including a birthday card for DS1 who will be 12 on Friday.  At the back are two presents waiting to be wrapped and a new phone and ear phones that are all mine - whoo hoo!

Thats my desk - hopefully it will be messier in a bit - if you want to join in the fun pop over to Julias and join in the fun!

Thanks for looking - a Happy Blogger from Solihull!

ps If you want instructions of how to make the sleigh using T!ms sign die on this post here http://www.sunshinegirlnicola.blogspot.co.uk/2012/10/a-sign-that-christmas-is-on-its-way.html please email me and I will send you a pdf.  Thanks and Happy Christmas!

Oh you will get there the mojo will fly away soon. Wait for the hot days and then hit the mags and go for it. Maybe you are trying to hard.

Happy crafting if you can.

Will look forward to more feedback on your course. I always start online courses with the best of intentions but never seem to follow thru as well as I should - I find my own ideas take over and once you let the momentum slip all is lost! Have a good one!

BJ said...

Which Tim's blog - Where? I can't find you nor your real name - HELP! Having a bad day, just managing to keep my head above water. Thanks for visiting me BJ#47

Stop Press spotted your name in a webaddress then found your mention a #13 - Phew. Super sleigh, I love using dies creatively and this is wonderful.

Did you get your tags done today? I have done another journal page (Advent 2) but not much else as feel wretched.

Thanks again for visiting me. BJ#47

Eliza said...

KatzElbows said...

Your wrapped parcels look pretty creative to me. Gift wrapping should never be underestimated!

Thank you for visiting and not joining in the chorus agreeing that I'm crazy. I know I am, I don't need people to confirm it!

cheers, rachel #50

MaggieC said...

I wasn't going to join in this week either, but in the end, withdrawal symptom go the better of me. Your desk looks lot of fun, much mor interesting than mine. Mind you, I did manage to complete a card this afternoon, so there is some progress, and I ordered a couple of pressies. I haven't found the foiling kit, but I did find the missing roll of bin bags. Hope you get everything done in time. xx Maggie

Claire said...

thanks for stopping by and leaving a lovely comment :)
Have a great WOYWW!

Lovely busy, productive desk there. Hope you have fun with Tim's stuff. thanks for your visit - my desk was only tidy because I was more or less between things and had had a tidy up, but the table beside it is a different story - we won't go there!!

Happy belated WOYWW,

Wow, congrats on getting a mention by the big man himself, how wonderful. No wonder you are chuffed!!
I hope your mojo has come home with his tail between his legs by now, it's not funny when he disappears when you want to be creative.
Thanks for visiting me already and Happy WOYWW
