Thank you for all the lovely comments left after last week's posting.  This is my picture for WOYWW? at Julia's this week and one word would describe it...   chaos.  Up until last night I had the Christmas card production line jogging along in a controlled orderly fashion but then decided to make a card for this week's Penny Black Saturday Challenge and ended up doing a TYTT again (Trash Your Table Tuesday).  However, after thinking I'd have to give the challenge a miss this week, through lack of any tree stamps, I decided to create one for Snowy instead and there the cogs started to turn and bits and pieces crept on to the table to create this scene.   I'm happy with the results though.

I'm trying to limit time in blogland at the moment as Christmas card production is in full swing.  My poor finger joints are complaining about all the repetitive actions they're having to do to make batches of cards and my poor brain won't switch off at night as it keeps wondering what design to make for the next batch and then there's the Penny Black Saturday Challenge card to make and.......  and......... .  I'm sure this is a common complaint at this time of year for most crafters and then there's the mental lists of Christmas shopping which whirl around in there too.  That must be why, comes Christmas afternoon and after Christmas dinner, I finally relax and fall asleep with cracker hat still perched on head.  There are several photos to prove this and it's become an expected part of the Christmas day proceedings in this house.

Right, on with the good work and thanks for popping past this week.

  7. Oooh the things we do for crafting. I was thinking it looks quite tidy - I see a table surface! It's easy to get side tracked and just one card challenge can grab a whole day from you! keep up the good card production and be nice t your fingers! Thanks for taking some time to share your desk...Sarah at 14.

  8. it IS a common prob at this time of year, but most of us (OK, me) get on theblog and whinge about it instead of setting a good example like you, and buckling down!!

  9. You sound ultra busy in the run up to the dreaded C. Hope you get it all done in time without too many RSIs!!! Happy belated WOYWW, Shoshi #70
