A big mess - that's what I have to show for What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday as I join in with Julia and the gang over at Stamping Ground.
Christmas is rearing it's head on my desk this week. It has suddenly come upon me that Christmas will soon be here so I pulled out all the stamps and papers and have been working on cards and gift boxes. I am purposefully not showing you the floor where most of the said stamps and papers are. I groan just seeing it. I couldn't bring myself to take a picture!
These are the two mini boxes I've made up. They will be filled with sweets (good ol' Cadbury for my American friends - they cost a fortune over here but yum!) and tied with curly ribbon and gift tags with names on. I have a few more to make.
These are my first two attempts at shaker cards. There is another on my desk - a window view. It's not quite finished and I'm trying to decide between two sentiments.
Another Christmas card. This one has an embossed image. I'm not sure whether to do something to the image to make it stand out more. Picture was taken last night so forgive the shadow.
Well, that's it for now. I feel a little more in control of cards as I have a few made now and some more in the works. I'm going to start gathering 'kid' pictures so I can start on Mum's calendar. The pages are completely blank - I have to fill in dates and months and decorate each page by hand. I've been doing it for years. It's not as easy now the 'kids' are all in their twenties, but Mum really enjoys it so I've got to dig up photos I've taken all year.
I'm off to look around other desks. Thanks for all the visits and comments!
