What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday??!!!

Hello All! This week finds me doing a bit more on the "ongoing" Advent Calendar project.

On my desk you will see I'm making some little parcels to go in the display part of the calendar and you may also just be able to see some attempts at making some miniature Xmas tree baubles from Fimo (I've never used Fimo before), there will be an Xmas tree in the display part too and my plan was to make 24 little baubles so there could be one in each drawer (along with a treat) to put on the tree as you count down to Xmas, however I'm not sure if I like my baubles.... I may buy some beads and use them instead.... my other half says they're fine and it's nicer if I make them, but I'm unsure at the moment!

To the side of my desk is a "temporary" table which is actually always there as I never have enough room on my desk, you will see the advent calendar sat on there being pondered over on what to do next :o) oh and you will also see part of my pocket dragon collection keeping their beady eyes on what I'm up to!

Right, better hop over to Julia's and take a peak at some more desks, thanks for stopping by, have a nice day x

Great advent calendar. Bound to become a family heirloom. Very cool. Maybe it doesn't need much more doing to it? it does look amazing just as it is.

cheers, rachel #19

I do love your Advent Calender too, it's amazing and I bet you want to keep it forever, and put all those little things into those draws every year, I know I would...and now we have a Christmas baby on the way, I'm thinking I'll start decorating the house like I used to, before my op that went wrong years back...(I'd never have got into crafting and blogging if that didn't happen!) Have a fabulous crafty week! HaPpY WoYwW

You are very organized to be getting Xmas things polished off your list. I should follow that rule and prevent those last minute rushes in the busy season...
Good on you!

Hello April your Advent Calendar is just beautiful. I never mind Christmas being mentioned as I just love it. I suppose I'm lucky that I have 4 grandchildren who still 'believe'. Although think I always will like everything Christmassy. Anne x
