WHAT'S ON YOUR WORKDESK WEDNESDAY??? WOYWW?? - The Book.... Finally!

Hi all! The last WOYWW before Christmas :o) Hope everyone is getting organised and ready for the day! that's right THE day!!! It's amazing how much preparation is needed for just ONE DAY!! I love it though, and am feeling much happier about it's rapid approach now I have finished the gift for my Mum, "the book" which has been ongoing for many months now!! as my regular visitors will know I have been breaking off from it to make Christmas cards, Birthday cards etc etc so never really had a good run at it so it ended up taking months!

I'm afraid it's only the front cover on show today, as I only had time for a quick photo before work, but I will definitely take photo's of it all and post in the next WOYWW for anyone who wants a peek inside, it's filled with old photo's, some nice verses and sentiments. All I need to do now is make a box for it and add the little tag I have made which I will do over the next couple of days. I will also be tidying up the huge mess that has been created throughout the completion of the book! My desk is an absolute tip and I cannot wait to tidy it up, I know getting crafty creates a mess but I'm at that stage where I can't find anything!!!!

Anyway, thanks for stopping by! Have a great Christmas! I will be popping over to Julia's a little later to visit some desks. x

That book is beautiful - if it was me on the receiving end, I'd be a sobbing, emotional wreck!! I'm sure she'll adore it.
So glad the bunting is ok!!
Wishing you joy and happiness this Christmas,

What a pretty book cover, am sure the inside will be just as beautiful. This is something special and I am sure your mum will be quite overcome when she sees it. Funnily enough I am making one myself but it won't be in time for Christmas.
Hope you and yours have a Merry Christmas - Hugs Neet #4 xx

Aw April, for some reason, blogger won't download your words, just the pictures..weird huh! Am gonna guess that album is a gift for your Mum, rath er than a commission, it's just lovely, a real malnourished of love. Liking the sight of your desk with ribbons and tape all still a work in progress, makes me feel much better.

It's been fun getting to know you, virtually that is :) The book cover is beautiful - your mum is going to love it. I wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Elizabeth x #46
