Happy new years to everyone and a very Happy WOYWW to anyone who has managed to make it today... I unfortunately didn't make it last Wednesday but I have hopefully this is a good omen of things to come... As you can see from today's photo taken this morning my desk has been a little neglected there is some stamped images I've started to colour last week and a pile of new stamps most of which came yesterday that I could not resist in the sales and magazine freebies to put away. Hopefully I will get some crafty time later today. You might also spot some new christmas pressies   a cute ceramic button box, bunny rabbit scissor holder...nothing is in the box as yet!

slow work in progress

Go check out the Stamping Ground for more great desks and to say to Julia a very big thank you for being a wonderful host and best wishes, good health and happiness for 2014. I also would like to take the opportunity to thank everyone who has taken the time to visit me over the last year and the kind comments I've received; I have made some wonderful friendships and hope that they flourish in 2014 .Crafty hugs and hope to visit you soon....

  12. Happy New Year, Andrea.
    Great colouring going on there - enjoy! It's quite a relaxing thing to do, isn't it?
    Thanks for visiting - don't know where everyone lives but an awful lot of folk seem to think fish and chips in a cone sounds great - the evening is open to all!!
    Have a great week.

  13. Isn't that button box cute! My desk was very neglected over the hols,and remained a bit of a wrapping station to be honest, so yours is looking lovely and prepared for the 2014 off!

  14. Just loving the Bunny scissor holder Andrea, how cute is that!
    Very pretty colouring too!

    Thanks for stopping by this week.
    Wishing a Happy New Year to you and yours and a Crafty New Year to boot!


  15. Love the little button box and the bunny scissors holder!! Looks like you got some bargains in the sales too. Now where to put it all, that's the big question! I will try and remember to post a pic of my knitting when it's done too.

  16. Don't know about "slow work" it is "lovely work" far better colouring than I can do.
    I am only a week behind, but Happy new Year to you and yours.
