WOYWW it's Nearly Christmas! Plus 400 Followers Freebie

Okay, I'm not ready for Christmas and no amount of stalling, walking backwards, going to bed late or getting up very early seems to make the day go any slower or make it any longer. I remember when I was little, being told that it was the longest day (or the shortest day) sent me into a kind of panic! The thought of spending even longer time at school or shorter time doing something I liked would totally freak me out! I even think I once told the teacher that I couldn't possibly stay any longer as I'd miss my bus home and my mum didn't know that the day was longer...! Of course everybody laughed. Now I know the day isn't actually longer or shorter...well, I don't think it is... but weeks do seem to fly by, as it's Wednesday already! and time for What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday, bringing a bit of sanity (or insanity) to the middle of the week!
This is What's On my Workdesk this Wednesday... It's not too bad, is it!?! Still colouring a few last minute cards and making tags as I've misplaced the ones I bought... Want to join in? (that's with WOYWW, not making tags...although you're quite welcome!) Then hop over to Julia's Stamping Ground, but be warned...the week will go even faster! Meanwhile, Mrs Dunnit, how did you get that bit of holly artwork on your Titles??? Very Cool....

  1. I'm sure every day gets a little shorter as we get older so maybe I should start walking backwards from now on? :-)
    Hope you and yours have a really wonderful Christmas and 2011 brings you all you wish yourselves.

  2. I find that a messy desk is a productive desk, well most of the time anyways lol.. Happy woyww and Happy Christmas too, congrats on all your followers

  3. I know all about misplacing things... I've had to buy more tools and open more reels of tape and forget about trying to find things in the hope that they'll turn up in their own good time.
    However, hand made tags will be better than bought ones any day!
    Wishing you and yours a blessed Christmas!

  4. hi Lyn

  6. Just spent too long trying to find some TH paper (stack) and given up. Bah humbug!
    Maybe walking backwards will help me - need something to put more hours in the day. Bog-eyed with getting up early to try to extend the day.

    Merry Crimbo!

    Happy WOYWW and Merry Christmas!

  14. I love your long/short story, so amusing. Just how children think although I must admit I still think like a child. Does that mean I haven't grown up or am soooo old that I've gone backwards?????
    Hugs Joanne xx

  15. Congrats on all your followers and thank you for the freebie its lovely. Have a great Christmas & New Year - big hugs xx

  16. Walking backwards to make the time go slower sounds a great trick to me, if you master it, let us know!
    Happy Christmas to you and your family.

  17. Thank you for the image! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

  19. Happy Christmas!!!! Funny, isn't it, how our craft making skills come into their own when we need a few tags for gifts!!!

  20. Wishing you luck on feeling more caught up (whether you or not) - thanks so much for the snoop. S #31

  21. I really hate to point out to you that yesterday actually WAS the shortest day as it was the Winter Solstice!!! Lol!

  28. Hi, having gone through more Christmasses than I choose to remember I can only say that from experience everything that has to be done gets done, and what doesn't you didn't need to do anyway - and nobody will notice or care because they will be having too much of a good time. Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a enjoyable day. Elizabeth #51

  29. Love the coloring going on at your desk. Aren't childhood memories never have to make the same mistakes over again, and they become more precious as years go by. Thanks for sharing and Merry Christmas to #2!

  30. Aha, we are alike, the shortest and longest day thing - I was the same. Still don't much trust the shortest day!! The holly and candy canes and blah are all part of a free blog layout design from LeeLou blogs there's a link right at the very centre top on my was FABULOUSLY easy to install, and I lost no gadgets or pics!
    Love that you're making tags too, I guess I will be till we leave the house on Christmas Morning!!

  31. Loved reading your post and know exactly what you mean! Have a great Christmas,
    love JoZarty x

  32. Never tried walking backwards... but with my lack of grace and coordination I'd probably fall over, so it's maybe better that I don't. The desk looks very productive!

  33. Your desk looks vert busy Lyn, thanks for the fab freebie too

    Happy Christmas to you and yours
    Hugs Jackie x

  34. Lovely freebie. Thanks and Merry Christmas.

  35. I know how you feel Lyn, I nowhere near ready for the Big Day yet lol. Thanks for the freebie :)

  36. Does't look so bad for someone who is still working away. I can never figure out how to downsize the freebies. Have a great Christmas.

  37. Another lovely freebie, always appreciated. Lots happening on your desk. The shortest day has been and gone a big sigh of relief.

  38. Love your tags on the desk and the colouring - thanks for the freebie and have a great Christmas however organised your are! Nicky ~ 52

  39. /love the Forever friends drawing and your digi is really great too.

    Thank you for the image.

  41. Thanks for the infor on the digi sizing!! I will give it a go later and let you know if I figured it out. #70
