What's on your Workdesk ?

Sorry about last week's inaction, thank you to those of you who left further comforting messages!  No updates yet, other than I have ordered my glasses - still waiting to hear from the hospital for the neuro referral.  So, as they say, life must go on.

And true to form, I've been shopping!!  Just decided I had to have the Tim Holtz seasonal paper stack and it arrived at work on Tuesday - just in time for it's starring role here, lol!  I had to open it there and then to check out the fab papers!

 I can't wait to start using them!
And at the weekend I finally got some more cards made - there are a few more than this, but there are multiples of some ( now that I am so far behind schedule, LOL!) The Santa one was blogged the other day for my Sunday Stamper entry.

And these singing hedgies are waiting to be cut out and put onto finished  cards.  I have a old PSX stamp of a lamp-post that I am thinking they will look good singing under (it's not really the right scale, but I figure I can claim artistic licence!)
The Tim Holtz lamp-post would be better size-wise but I am trying to be good with the credit card (sort of!)


Anyhow, if you have called here wondering why I am showing you my very messy craft sheet (much loved) check out all the other fellow work-deskers here - Julia does a sterling job marshalling us all each week, thanks Julia!
