Wednesday again!!!Arrggggggg the weeks are flying by with ever increasing momentum now!

This week finds me doing my last couple of Xmas cards, haven't made as many as I'd hoped but I've done enough for family and close friends so any others that I send will have to be from my bought stash! Regular visitors will notice the memories book that I am hoping to have done for an xmas pressie is still sat to the left of shot having not moved since last week!!! I decided I should concentrate on getting cards finished as they need to be sent quite soon then I'm going to finish the book, so hopefully come next week you will see me in full book production... time will tell on that one, I'm putting the xmas decs up at the weekend so how much crafting time I will get is hanging in the balance!

Last week Julia asked if there was a box of pineapple chunks on my desk??!! healthy food in my little crafty heaven?? I think not! :o) it's actually a tub of my sponges that I used for inking edges etc, this week it is open as I've just been using them!

Oooh I almost forgot, I have a new lamp too :o) top right of shot, well I shouldn't have it yet really, it's my xmas pressie off my lovely Mum, she ordered me a daylight lamp online but when it arrived the box was badly damaged so she was worried the lamp may be damaged so she gave me it early to test it works ok, and yes it does :o) it's great!!! it gives much better light than my old lamp!

Hope you are all well this week, thanks for stopping by, I'll be heading over to Julia's later for a peek at some desks, bye for now x

What a fab present! I love my daylight lamp, in fact, I couldn't work without it now! I like that stripy and checked papers on your cards, very different for Christmas, but really nice!
You've won one of my buntings! Can you please email me your address and I'll send it pronto!
Hugs, LLJ #3 xx

You are ahead of me if you are just finishing your cards, I have yet to start and I think like you I will have to resort to bought ones for other than close family and friends otherwise I'll still be doing them on Boxing Day!!
Your daylight lamp looks great, what a brilliant Mum buying you such a great pressie. I may have to invest in one, these dark days are hard for crafting aren't they?
