What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday???

Hello all! Well to say it's May, things are looking pretty Christmassy on my desk??!! The reason for this is I'm working on a Kaisercraft advent calendar, it is going to be a pressie for my Mum's birthday, which isn't until September, but it's quite a big job (as I'm usually a card maker) so I'm doing it in stages. I was inspired to do one after seeing Susan's wonderful creation at the end of November last year. I assembled and painted it in January and it's been packed away again since then! I'm on with covering all the little drawers now. The bronze charms at the left have just arrived, I need to put them away really as my desk is getting pretty full!

Thanks for stopping by, I'm heading over to Julia's now to take a peek at some more desks! Have a good day x

Well good for you, your Mum will love it. Even if the making of it has scared most WOYWWers to death!! What is that red handled tool - looks like something my GP would use!!

Now that is one really busy desk, I have been looking at doing one of those advent calendar things myself but always seem to run out of time. It's looking good, you must upload finished photos.
