WOYWW - Christmas is coming - help !!


OMG ! This time next month it will be Christmas Eve ! And I have barely anything Christmas related done !
We are not entertaining at home this year - so thankfully at least I have that pressure off - but I have to get my act together on the present buying front !
On the work desk this week is a little Christmas shadow box in the making ... I had this idea way back at the Artsy Crafty weekend in October & I have been messing about with the pieces but have decided it's tipped the balance from being "colour co-ordinated & tasteful" into "all a bit dull & muted" !! So I need to have a re-think as to how I get a bit of - still tasteful ! - Christmas pizazz into it ! I think some metal work might be called for - or making some mosaic tiles from polymer clay ??

Anyway something to play around with ... and a week today Journal Your Christmas starts again - so I need to get my Album cover underway & I am determined to get all my date labels done up in advance - that prep paid off big style when I did Learn Something New in September - so if I really DID learn that particular new thing I'd be silly not to act on it !!
Oh - and place cards for the Christmas table are on my TO DO list too !

Anyway Happy Wednesday & looking forward to a snoop around your desks this week !

  2. Looking at all these Christmassy desks is giving me a stress headache. I haven't even started my Christmas cards or shopping!
    Love your work in progress and can't wait to see the finished product. Need to keep hopping to find my mojo...

  11. That box is at the lovely stage of being so full of possibilities. I am sure that metallics will look fabulous. Do let us see what you do with it. Bernie #11

  13. Hi Alison,
    I know how you feel about not being organised for christmas. I am nowhere near the stage I am normally at for this time of year.

    Have a great day

  14. Hi Ali - is it really so close to Christmas? Guess so! Now am wondering if we have met at an Artsy Crafty weekend? That shadow box looks very promising so hopefully before long you will share a picture of the completed one.

  15. No good asking me about it - the proposed contents look great to me! Your comments about Christmas could have come from me - apart from the added panicky part of my voice about entertaining on Christmas Eve and Boxing night!! Must learn to wait for an invite!

  16. Doesn't look dull to me, loving the look of your creation. Am in denial about how close it all is. Tralalalalala *fingers in ears, eyes firmly closed*
