Last Work Desk Wednesday for 2010

So I thought I would join in and it also might encourage me to tidy it and actually do something crafty.

As you can see the last time I sat at the table to do anything was to wrap Christmas presents, hence the gift wrapping and packaging.

Do visit Julia's blog and have a look at her wonderful work and musings - so funny and maybe join in yourself and show your workdesk/space.

Oh what a night!!

As a christmas present treat for my husband and me, my daughter booked us a nights' stay in a local hotel with champagne and a jacuzzi bath ;)

Very lovely and very, very enjoyable.

Twis the night before Christmas ......

I do love that story :)

Today I would like to wish you all a Happy Christmas and hope that everything is coming together nicely *fingers crossed* and that you all get some crafty goodies in your stockings that you have been eyeing up all year.

Thought I would show you a photo of the "state" of our snowy visitor, hahaha

He does look a bit worse for wear doesn't he? If fact you could say he is "off his face" get it? hahaha Well actually I caught the culprit who swiped his face. Yes it is this little red chested fellow ....I saw him one morning wiping the smile off the snowman's face hahaha well I suppose when you are hungry raisins are a tasty treat.

Well I guess that it just means that it is time for me to wish everyone "a Happy Christmas to all and to all a good night."

Tis the season to be jolly .....

Happy Christmas Eve eve to all you out there is Blogland.

Thought I would share a heart I knitted as part of my parcel of gifts to my partner in the Quirky Boots Heart Swap. I now know my partner Andria has received it so I can post a photo of it here.

I got the free pattern from Jujube & Lolo they have some wonderful knitted things go take a look. Thanks for stopping by.

It's beginning to look alot like Christmas ....

Hi there blogland some snowy photos to share with you today. This was my garden before a visitor arrived and made himself at home ......

and then a photo of our visitor

not sure how long he is staying but he is wrapped up warm and looks like he has had a skin full!!! tee hee.

Next I want to show my Christmas bunting from a Bunting Swap I participated in over on Bubbly Funk Forum. I haven't strung mine together this year but might next year. Lots of other things to spot on my mantle piece too so you can play I Spy if you like! "I spy with my little eye something beginning with p". You can also see a pom pom garland that I didn't finish in time last year but now has pride of place over the mirror. Thanks to Anjie for the inspiration.

And then a close up of the letter I did. I also did one in a blue, silver and white colourway but I haven't got a photo of that one.

Thanks for stopping by and hope you are enjoying the snow and that it isn't a hassle for you wherever you are.

Birthday Cards

Thank you to all the lovely crafters over on the Bubbly Funk Forum I received these brilliant cards for my birthday last week.

So many different ideas that no two are the same. Thanks girls.

I roared with laughter when I opened my card from Janice! I had to double take after my eyes met Mr Tennant and then looked at his "assistant" and saw it was me hahaha. Dr Who's Teaching Assistant!!!!! hahahaha Thanks Janice that has made my year :)

Just to round off this blog post nicely I thought you might like to see a Belguim chocolate Pharaoh. He was delicious and one my daughter brought home from Bruges last Saturday.

Thanks for stopping by. x
