A Sight I never Thought I Would See…………….. WOYWW (#128)

And that’s the state that my work desk is in this morning, but before I go into details about what’s on my desk I would just like to apologize for the fact that I didn’t round to very many people last week, including one or two who left me messages. Time just slipped away from me, as it tends to do at this time of year but I hope to make a more concerted effort this week and visit as many of you as I can. But having said that it will be later in the week because I’m away at the weekend.

So then, back the main reason we are all here and that’s to see what’s on my desk this morning.

Julia, has her “Queen of Hop” crown on over at The Stamping Ground from where she hosts What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday, so it’s full steam ahead.

As you will know from my previous posts, I’ve been up to my neck in Christmas card orders and I’m pleased to say that I am beginning to see the wood for the trees now, having really cracked on with them last week.

On my desk you can see lots of little piles of cards, all ready to be sent out to the people who have ordered them from me and I also managed to finish off the other 30 cards for the lady I was meeting last Thursday and delivered them to her by hand.

Here's a closer look at a few of the cards.

This is the one I was working on last week.

It’s somehow satisfying to see them all sitting there finished but I still have my own cards to complete, so I’m not quite at the finishing line just yet.

As I’m writing this, I’m just waiting for my friend Sue to arrive and then we are going Christmas shopping but when I get back this evening I have to finish off two birthday and one Christmas card that I need to leave at my brothers before I go away on Friday.
I’m off down to Bournemouth to see my Aunty for a few days with my cousin and while we are there we’ve got tickets to see John Barrowman at the BIC…..thought we would treat my auntie!

By the way, Pricilla was great last week.
What a fab show…… flamboyant and over the top….great music and stunning costumes….what more could we ask for.

We had a lovely meal too, so fingers cross that when I go for my SW weigh-in tomorrow I’ve still managed to loose.
Last week I broke through the ½ stone and have lost a total of 8 ½ lb. in four weeks.

Right then I must get on and Sue will be here shortly.

Hope you all have a good week.  See you soon.

Happy Crafting!

They are so fabbie - I confess I am way to lazy to make Xmas cards - we just do a donation to charity.

OMG ...those cards are sooo good I wish I could create cards anything close to those.
Congrats on the weight loss ...I really need to loose some ...well loads really ...head is not in the right pkace.
I assume you are talking about the stage show of 'Pracilla Queen of the Dessert' ...I envey you as the film is my all time fav ...I have watched it so many times ...I rarely watch a film more than once ...twice at a push ...and then there are a few that are special.xx

Those cards are just gorgeous Sue, I can't believe how prolific you are! I can only imagine what your desk must have looked like mid flow! All the cards I've been posting since Saturday were all made on either Saturday or Sunday, I needed a bit of me time for sure. In general I'll be very busy at work until the end of April!! Although not every week will be as bad as the last one, but it does always seem like it doesn't rain but it pours.


Di said...

Oh WOW Sue, what stunning cards! I love them all and would be delighted to produce as many as you have. Well done. Di xx

Sue you're amazing..I'd be so sick of Christmas cards if I were you!! Hope you're having a lovely break with your fun.

lisa said...

Wow, how lovely are these cards. You have been soooo busy by the looks of all of those on your desk.
I know what you mean about having little time to blog hop. See I'm just getting around everyone's desks and it's Saturday night!!!
A belated Happy WOYWW

For being # 1 this week, I'm awfully late visiting. I'm so sorry but, after a computer crash, I had to stop by and get a bit of inspiration and sure got it with those wonderful cards. I don't make many cards because my friends don't appreciate them. They sure would YOURS, though.

Morti said...

Wow! You put the rest of us to shame. My christmas card count so far this year is a big fat zero! LOL.

Just popped over and saw your stitching blog and I see you've not updated it since '08 - papercrafting has taken over? I know the feeling.... LOL...

Thanks for stopping by!
