1st WOYWW of 2011

Happy 2011 to all you WOYWWers!! Welcome to all you newbies who have decided to join in with Julia's Gigantic blog hop!! If you're still indecisive (undecisve??) pop over to the Stamping Ground anyway!! Just take a picture of where you craft and come and join in. It's very addictive!
Okay, so I've already broken all my New Years Resolutions. I'm still eating chocolate and taking sugar in my tea and coffee and my crafty desk is still a giant crafty mess! But, I have started putting things away from the dining table and stacking everything up on top of everything else! (and there are rumours that I might be moving out of my tiny crafty room (and dining table) into the larger spare room!!! (MORE SPACE!! and John mutters more mess!)

As you can see, my work bench is in a bit of a state! Promise it will be tidier next week! (ohooo my wooden nose has suddenly grown longer...) Off to work this morning, early again so this is on timer and the crafty pictures were taken last night.

Taking down all the decorations when I get home. That shouldn't take too long, as I didn't put so much up this time.
Any guesses on how many 'things' are on my Christmas Tree this year??? And what the newest ornament was??? Oh, by the way artificial trees won my voting thing-a-me-jig with 68%.
Not a good pic of the tree, I think I'd been on the Sherry!...or maybe the Baileys by then!

New Followers! Hi and welcome to ((wave))) Work'n'Play (with links to freebies so go and have a look!) and Lisa's Stuff-n-Such Thanks for stopping by!!
Sorry You missed this freebie.
I just had to show you these two lovely New Baby cards by Deborah of Deb's Gems using Elle the Elephant. Deb you really have made Elle come to life! Thank you so much!

  18. Now that's what I call a tree! Don't make too many resolutions myself can't stick to them! Although I have resolved to make more mess this year!! See how long that lasts. Busy desk as usual and really cute digi, but why the yellow plastic fork this week???

  22. Happy New Year if I haven't already said it! Thank youfor the lovely image! She's uber cute!!!
    Your desk always makes me feel better as I'm a messy crafter too!! What's the point in having all that stash if you don't have it out to play with!! lol
    Looking at your tree I'd guess there's in excess of 200 bits on it & I rekon the spiders web is the newest of them!!!
    Hugs

  23. Yes Lyn what a mess, and I suspect it wont be any better next week knowing you, but maybe you will prove me wrong.
    Hope the day at work doesnt wear you out to much as I can see youve got quite a job to put that tree away. With love and hugs Shirleyxxx

  24. Don't bother tidying up, just shove it all into boxes and get into the new craft room PDQ before anyone changes their mind and you can tidy everything away in there.

  30. That is truly an amazing desk!! Can you find stuff?? I believe that an untidy desk is the sign of a creative mind!! It's my excuse :)

  35. Thank you for this adorable freebie! It's perfect for Valentine's Day cards :). Would it be OK if I printed a few extras to share with the ladies at our senior home Scrapbooking Together charity card-making events? We will be making Valentines Day cards soon and I know your elephant would be a big hit!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Thank you for the adorable Elephant image! Perfect for Valentine's Day, or a Baby Girl card!

  37. I'm not sure how many ornaments on the tree, but I'll say 100. It looks pretty loaded to me, but I might be a bit that myself for saying that number (grin). I look forward to your move into a bigger space. We'll all be there to share the move with you, even if we can't really help pack or organize. Happy WOYWW from #16 this week.

  38. Stopped by to say Hi. No WOYWW for me these last few weeks, but hope to get back in to the swing of things soon! Darling Digi

  42. Your tree is a stunner, but am at a total loss as to guess numbers, hopeless at that. As for changing into a new room - do it. BUT, don't use the new room till the old one is properly empty...otherwise you'll just be spread across two rooms. ASk me how I know!

    ReplyDelete
  43. A very happy new year ,thank you so much for this cute image.You are very kind.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Thanks for the great freebie, and Happy New Year to you. You beat me to it this week, I did not even manage to get the right day. I lost Wednesday completely. I am glad I looked at yours cause it reminded me that I have not seen my set of petal point inks for ages. I still need to gather stuff out of my temporary space and get it all together in the new one. Grab that new room fast and enjoy yourself spreading out. Look forward to seeing how you go wih that. Good luck.

  49. Thank you for this adorable elephant. Will make a great new baby card. My desk (whole craft room) is needing a little (maybe a lot) TLC by atleast next Wednesday when my cleaning lady comes. It is a good reason to put everything in it's place once a month.

  50. What a gorgeous Ellie, thanks so much.
    Is it only a few days since the Christmas decorations came down, it seems like weeks ago!!!! Your tree looked beautiful. I hate putting all the twinkly lights away at this gloomy time of your but can't risk the wrath of 12th night!!!!Yes, I've been at the sherry too!!
