woyww wishes to everyone and apologies as I haven't been around for a few weeks; work has gone from bad to worse with staffing and unfortunately I haven't had the time to craft or post or visit anyone in days... actually its been weeks! I'm off work today which is my last day off until Christmas day (fingers crossed as still to confirm staff cover) I've never had to work Christmas day and hopefully that wont change this year! I have lots to do including catching up with housework and ironing and wrapping pressies, but couldn't not post as having severe withdrawals... what from you ask WOYWW of course...go to Julia's at the Stamping Ground and check it wont be dissapointed.

The craft room is an exceptionally Christmas free zone..Christmas crafting has been all put away and other than some boxes for cards that I MUST make going tomorrow to the recipients.My craft room is very neat and tidy...the card in progress is for a friend who's birthday is on New Years day.I found some paper packs and chipboard's that came free with a magazine. which should make for an easy and quick card to make. Hubby's birthday is on the 28th... eek!...I haven't a clue what to do or when I will have the time to make his but I'm sure I will manage it somehow. 

I have been naughty and sneaked in a photo of my christmas tree(sorry Julia)...I had to as hubby excelled himself this year... he always does the tree and I came home last week very stressed from work to this years masterpiece... how could I not be happy...  I do love Christmas... I also sneaked in a photo of one of my many christmas tags... like my cards this year I haven't photographed most of them,haven't had the time.I have so many and probably enough for next year too!.. I think I got carried away and enjoyed making the tags as they where simple and quick to do. I hope you have great week and are all ready and organised for the festivities. I will visit later today once I've finished some of my many chores...lots of crafty hugs and if I dont post next week have a very Happy Christmas and lovely time whatever you do and whoever you are with. Crafty hugs... Andrea X


  1. Good morning
    Just popping my head around the door to say hi and wish you a very happy Christmas. Beautiful tree. I do ours too, we have three and all get done before the family comes home, though this year my younger daughter helped with the first one.
    Thanks for sharing your workplace.

  2. I love the tree, I usually do ours but this year hubby and daughter did it, I think they can do it from now on lol. Use your extra lovely tags on the front of your card for next year. Thanks for sharing, Merry Christmas and a Happy New year Tracy #41

  3. They are so cute!!

    Happy Christmas!

  5. You know I always love visiting your neat desk, Andrea! The card is so pretty, as is your Christmas tag, but that tree? Now that is indeed a masterpiece! What a blessing to have that guy, huh? Wish him a happy birthday from me on the 28th and, yes, we do always manage to get done what we have to, don't we?!

    Happy WOYWW and thank you for coming to visit me and leave some love! I wish you the happiest of holidays and I pray that your work situation improves next year. You so deserve to be less stressed and overworked!! Hugs, Darnell #10

  6. Lovely photos Andrea, Hubby does most of our tree too. I am allowed to add stuff under strict supervision, as he says I aim for a tinsel & bauble mountain look,if left to my own devices, lol! Lovely tag, I did a few this year, and quite enjoyed them too, I think I've added something else to my todo list for next year now.Wishing you a Happy and Peaceful Christmas and New Year, from me & my Beloved Hubby. Huge Christmas Hugs, Shaz #44 xx
