.. except, not round here it's not.. Christmas that is. Not at all prepared, apart from the cards that are still not written. No presents bought, no decorations up (well there isn't room for much, certainly not a tree, but I will put out some bits .. soon!
Welcome to another Wednesday hop round the desks of the globe, thanks to Julia's Stamping Ground.
Not a huge amount to share yet, the new computer is still were it was last week, in the space where my craft mat should be, on the floor... was struck by a sudden but shortlived tummy bug on Thursday last week (hence the lack of visits to most of you) -although it was over quickly I was left drained by it.
This meant that it hasn't been possible for the friend from work who was going to come and help me set it up (I can't do techy stuff!) to come and do it yet... maybe sometime this week!
I did do a bit of crafty shopping - the accessory pack for Tim's Crazy Bird stamps.. wasn't going to but saw them on a reasonable Black Friday offer.. they arrived the day I was poorly, I found them on the doormat when I went back to work on Friday.
I will NOT be buying the dies to go with these, can you imagine lining up such fiddly little images? I'd rather curse with a pair of scissors..
I spent Sunday at a Paperartsy Christmas Party/Workshop in Brentwood, Essex and we all (about 37 of us) had an amazing time.. (I was just about eating again by then but would have enjoyed it even more if I could have had pudding!!) the full post about it is here
If I'd been organised I'd have written some of the cards and taken them with me, but ......
these are the two projects we made during the day. Two fabulous canvasses, very different styles, but I love them!
They both need a bit of "faffing" to finish, but they're gorgeous. I'll try and get some pics in daylight so you can see them better sometime!
