Thanks in large part to Julia, I was able to say, good enough albeit ten minutes before we were due at my sister's Christmas eve lol. And here is the one project (a scarf)I thought I had finished in October, except when I went to wrap it I saw I forgot to sew in the ends. I couldn't bear to go out in holiday traffic on Christmas eve to the store to buy needles large enough, so it came home with me to be actually finished. In person, one can see the lacy pattern. It's also handspun yarn. I should mention that I am one of the world's slowest knitters so the fact it became actually long enough to be a scarf is something which tickles me pink!

So now it's the daunting task of putting my craft room back in order. It was a good Christmas, with quality time spent with family and my daughter made me some lovely presents.

If you are wondering what this WOYWW is all about, head over to Julia's Stamping Ground and have a gander. Better yet, take a picture of your workdesk and join in :D.

To quote a line from one of my all time favorite movies, Babe, "Christmas is carnage!" Bits and pieces from all sorts of projects. Hopefully I'll get a nice picture of each project before it's bundled out of here.

This is my little side work area. The sawdust is leftover from my little mitrebox. The silver thing is the most awesome tool, it pokes a hole at the center of any dowel easy peasy as long as it fits into one of the circles.

So if you are asking yourself, What's all this What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday, head over to Julia's Stamping Ground and have a gander. Better yet, snap a picture of your workspace and join in the fun :D.

All That Glitters Card

Hello everyone, today is my turn to be the guest designer at The Bugbytes. Today's project is a card. I cut the embellishment from two squares of a sheet of Paper Layerz - All Stressed Out, Love Struck 2010 cartridge cut at 3.07 (just remove it very carefully from the mat). Glue the embellishment to the shadow and then cover the heart with Milled Lavender Stickles.

Attach that to a mat embossed with Plum Blossoms accented with some Dusty Concord Distress Stickles, over a pre-glittered mat.
