Happy WOYWW (What is On Your Workdesk Wednesday) to you all. This will be my last before Christmas, so Merry Christmas to you all too.
Go to Julia's Stamping Ground to join in with this weekly global tour.
I have posted my pile of cards (all either from charities or an independent artist - the first year that I have not made any cards). Just got the ones to hand out locally - and I have promised myself that I will make one for hubby. Presents are either waiting to be wrapped or I am still waiting for delivery. Most of the pile in our spare room need to be sent with a courier, so that job awaits before the weekend. Also got to get the tree/decorations up before we depart for Spain early next week, as we return just before Christmas, and I know that I will not have the strength to start battling with lights/tinsel etc then!
My crafty table shows an assortment of things - some of which is crafty.
The lovely fabric case is for my new Kindle (so I can read in the Spanish sunshine). Bought it from an Etsy shop, who made it up really quickly for me (as I had left it late to order, as usual) - and it turns out she is from Carmarthen, so not far from me in terms of the Etsy World.
There are two snowman ATCs - created for the Facebook swap group I am in.
A piece of card that I tried putting through my little embossing machine with a very thin embossing die - just about worked, and was clearer once I tried rubbing my new Gelatos over it, but then I decided to try the DecoArt Glamour Dust paint over it, and that just merged with the Gelato. A lovely sparkly piece of card, but you can't see the embossing very well.
A wooden butterfly that I bought from our local 'Catalogue Shop' for a bargain price (love that place). It is going to be thoroughly decorated on both sides, but so far I have used some chalk paint.
Behind are the remaining figures from the M&S Advent Calendar I bought for myself. I had to colour in and construct it myself - and these are spare figures to add detail to it. I will be cutting out/colouring some more, hopefully before the 24th.
The green card is another piece of embossing practice. It has a Christmas Tree design on it, and I will try to incorporate it into a card for hubby.
I hope that everyone is well and not buried under festive crafting.
I might blog whilst in Spain, so keep an eye out for photos of blue skies and glorious scenery!
