WOYWW - Christmas comes to Craft Club

Hi, everyone. Welcome to another day of desk hopping round the world, thanks to Julia at the Stamping Ground for WOYWW. 

Tuesday saw me at my sister-in-law's Craft Club for the first time in months - the first time since I started my new job in fact. I don't normally get home from work in time to eat and get back out again for Craft Club, but this month I happened to have the afternoon off work so along I went.

It was Christmas-themed so I took along supplies to make some more Christmas cards. I also forgot to take many pictures whilst I was there, so took these of my output, when I got home.
 in the foreground is some of my stamping stuff, I was spreading out as usual! Lots of sewing going on, and some other ladies were also making cards.

Thanks for the lift home, BJ - hope you made it home before you fell asleep!!


 I got 7 done....
and I now have quite a pile ready - all the insides stamped too! I will probably need to write out the list soon, so I know how many more to go - I usually get somewhere towards 70 made!

Hope you all enjoy your Wednesday, and I'll catch your desk soon.

Hello Helen! Nice to see you got to Craft club and that BJ was able to give you a lift! Your card output is impressive! I still haven't made a single festive card - hangs head in shame - but over on my desk this week I do have the raw materials, well some of them, for Christmas cards so maybe soon! Have a great WOYWW! Try not to work too hard! Julie Ann xx

How fun that you have a Craft club where you can go to play... when you have the time. It is hard when you work all day to get home, get fed, and get back out. You got quite a bit done! Happy WOYWW! Helen #16

Well done you on achieving the seven cards..you have a fine pile accruing there! The craft club looks fun, there are a few around here but I never seem to have the time..which is mad really.

Isn't it nice to get out and have a craft play with like minded people? Your cards look lovely. We really must write a list too. And make some more cards.

We crafters have so much in common down to the products that we use. Glossy accents is my glue of choice. You had quite a productive evening with lovely results. Carole # 72

Laura said...

It looks like you had a good time at your craft group -- your cards are pretty -- it's fun to make multiple designs. 70??? Good for you! I'm so glad people still send cards . . . and some people make them by hand. The digital world is great, but handmade is special. Happy WOYWW (and thanks for visiting.) ~ Laura

Julia Dunnit said...

Blimey, that is a good pile...and super impressed that the insides are done too...am going to really have to make a proper effort. Soon! Happy to read that you got out to craft group..it takes mega effort after a work day, even a half day, to haul stuff out and be productive,

scrappystickyinkymess said...

Now, see, that is where working on Christmas cards at a summer crop gets you - well ahead of the game :)

Happy WOYWW!

Monica said...

That is quite an accomplishment and I am impressed as I am so easily distracted from tasks by new ways to make things. What a ovely way to spend an afternoon off work with a crafters club.

How fun! I think it's always more fun with other creatives when creating. Your cards are awesome. I can't believe you make/send 70! Those are some lucky recipients to get one. Have a wonderful WOYWW!! Rasz #102

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

Looks like you had a lot of fun at Craft Club. Seems you got a lot done, too, even with what I suspect was a lot of laughing and carrying on. And nice to read you know BJ. This has become a small world.

Obviously, I skipped WOYWW this week, but stopped by to say HI.

Morti said...

Hello! I'm back! Just a bit.... LOL

Life is busy but rewarding at the moment and hopefully I'll have a grand announcement in a few weeks....LOL again...

Keep well!

BJ said...

Well done on getting your post done more timely than mine, I was so zonked on Tuesday I didn't remember until Wednesday bedtime! Your cards are super and I got to see them up close too with all the work you put into them. BJ#108

Nan G said...

I'm glad you enjoyed your craft club evening, you should be very proud of your collection of Christmas cards. I am VERY glad that I don't have to make anything close to that amount.
