WOYWW? Christmas has landed!

Yes, Christmas card preparation has landed! Only because of the gorgeous new range of stamps designed by woyww'er JoFY for Paperartsy - have you seen them?  OMG they are so beautiful... and so I had to get a couple... which meant I had to ink them...

After last week's craft club, I am back where I belong - crafting on the floor! Don't you just love that headless snowman of Jo's?!!

Arial view  (i.e standing up!) of the craft space
and a close up of some of the finished cards - a long way to go.

Hope to get round lots of your desks today (I am off work, waiting for the British Gas engineer to come and fix my boiler - I currently have no hot water as the pilot light won't light - not ideal, and I really really hope they can fix it as I can't afford a new boiler....)

I also need to decide what supplies to take to the WOYWW meet on Saturday - so if I decide, I hope to see you there!

Realise I have got right through this post without explaining why you are seeing shots of my very untidy floor - it's show all time, What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday - desk not essential!!

WOW looks like card crafting is in overdrive here! I am going to have to find out where to get those stamps they are awesome. I haven't seen them here in the states at all. Have a great week. Vickie #41

Julia Dunnit said...

They are fab images, that JoFY is so clever. I like how you've combined the borders too..see, they look great together and I wouldn't have thought of that...Love the aerial view...made me LOL!

Annie said...

I hope the gas man can sort out the problems with the boiler without too much expense....you need all your space cash for crafting after all :-)

Redanne said...

Love the aerial shot today and those stamps are fabulous, JoFY is so clever, I love quirky! So hope you get the boiler fixed, not a great time of year to be without hot water.....Happy WOYWW, Anne x #60

Neet said...

Oops! Leandra was at the show in Harrogate at weekend but despite chatting to her a couple of times (I so miss her) I never looked at the stand. Dem'ing at shows gets me like that!! No interest in buying.
Are those "C" cards on fabric? They are gorgeous - love the colour of blue.
Thanks for sharing -
Hugz, Neet 29 xx

Love that those stamps are already inky! The ones so far look amazing! I've used mine a little but need to crack on if I intend to make them for Christmas...!!! Hope the Gas man has been - I'll check Twitter in a bit! Happy Wednesday!

CraftygasheadZo said...

Hope you have hot water soon lovely, and I hope to meet you on Saturday! You'll be the 1st CB DT I've ever met, unless someone else from our team comes on Sat as well. Take care Zo xx 84

OOoo! I hope you get your boiler fixed or there may be a liberal spray of air freshener on Saturday in the room!
Love your completed C cards. I did not expect to see those on your desk/floor so soon!!

Carmen said...

They are indeed gorgeous stamps. I do love that star.

Hope the boiler man doesn't keep you waiting all day and that he manages to get your hot water going again.

Cardarian said...

Oh those Christmas stamps are lovely I will have to order them too! Thank you for sharing! Looking forward to Saturday! See you soon!
Lots of hugs

Ann B said...

Would you believe it, was looking at the PaerArtsy blog before I came on here and admiring the stamps. My favourites are the stars - sucker for a star stamp.
Lovely cards Helen.
Late this week so number 118 - how did that happen?

Sandi McLean said...

Desktop, floor, shelves and even walls - nothing gets in the way of a crafting production line! I have been so tickled to find that mostly we are all in the same productive mess! Do decide and have a wonderful weekend crop! Hugs, Sandi #37

Hi Helen,

I honestly don't know how you manage to craft on the floor! Once I'm on the floor I'd be there for a while......

The cards look great! Oh, I wish I could come over and be at the WOYWW gathering this weekend.

Happy WOYWW
Hugs, Kay #126

fairy thoughts said...

Aghhh Christmas cards, I still have my head firmly in the sand on that one!! still maybe Saturday if I get my act together. Love your cards but the star of the desk is definately the headless snowman.... inspired :)

I'll be the one with the hankies!

Nicky said...

Hope your boiler has been fixed, love your christmas cards, thanks for visiting me x

scrappymo! said...

You are so busy, girl!!!
The blueish ones are so "arty" pretty...the new stamps look great!

I hope your boiler gets fixed...I have been there...and they can be so pricey to replace. Fingers crossed that it is some little inexpensive problem.

You lucky girl to be able to go to the crop...take lots of pictures for the rest of us!!!

TeddyBobCrafts said...

Happy WOYWW. I am still touring around workspaces being nosey! Fab Xmas cards. I haven't made a single one this week - yet! Have a brilliant time on Saturday. Hope the boiler is now working. Ali x #67

Princess Judy Palmer said...

Indeed, workdesks not essential to workdesk Wednesday. So many of us mess ours up to the point that the floor is the only option. The floor is so conveniently located! Those are fun stamps for the holidays. Happy playing and hope you get hot water real soon (and inexpensively).

~stephanie~ said...

Lots of fun stuff going on there! Wish I could work on the floor but our dogs won't allow it. lol I hope they get the boiler light fixed quick! Happy Holidays! ~Stephanie~ #141

Bridget Larsen said...

Arrrggggh Christmas again. Floor crafting-never heard of that hahaha, I use my floor to store stuff most of the time and my desk is either full or empty depending on whether I have visitors

Fab cards Helen! x

Paula Gale said...

Ahh.. the familiar sight of your floor - back where you belong!

Those stamps do look great H... love the star one with the text too - love how you've matted it.

Hope you had a fab day yesterday - I was thinking about you all a few times while I spent the day crafting myself - so with you in spirit! I best you all were talking so much your hardly got anything done! I'm so envious, hope you had a blast.

Big hugs

Paula (#148) x x x

p.s. hope you didn't need a new boiler!!
