WOYWW - It's beginning to look a lot like ....

.... Christmas on the desk !

This weekend was very Christmas orientated !

So here you can see the evidence - Snowflake punches, Stickles & sparkly embossing powders - a small mound of home-made Christmas cards - and a half painted Christmas tree !

Saturday was freezing cold - but sunny with blue skies!

I was up & out early for a hair cut & caught this stunning heavy frost on the grasses & the winter sun through the vivid Autumnal leaves !

Much beloved & I had great day out over in Cardiff - Christmas shopping - we even sat outside the coffee shop in the sun to drink our coffee !!
Then headed down for a Latino Tapas lunch on Mermaid Quay in Cardiff.

So still on the Christmas theme, here  you can see my Christmas Project Box - all my paraphernalia for card making and ready to go for Journal Your Christmas starting on Sunday !

And here is my other project box - packed all ready as I am heading off for the Finnabair class at The Artist's Trading Post in Derbyshire - really looking forward to it !

So hope you have a great week ! Ali xx


  1. Happy WOYWW. Another busy and creative deskshot. My tables are looking very business-like at the moment, but at least the old crafting stuff is still there (scissors, glues etc). My Xmas Stash Box is safely in one of the old wardrobes I use for storage. It is crying to come out, but I really need to concentrate on my new business. Day out in Cardiff sounds wonderful. The recent weather has been such a help on the farm - makes outside work so much easier. Have a fab time in Derbyshire - wish I could travel as much as you do. Ali x #49

  2. OOh! A Finnabair workshop! How lovely. It is my dream to attend one of those! Have fun and do share what you create on your blog! Julie Ann xx #55

  3. Fabulous frosty photos :-)
    I hope you have fun at your Finnabair workshop (not sure what they are) but I bet you will have a super crafty time and Derbyshire is lovely scenery :-D

  4. Gorgeous icy photos of Wales there!! Love 'em :-) Glad you had a good time in Cardiff, I've got to now it a lot better since my son has been at Uni there. The arcades are wonderful and there are some good fabric shops there...ooh, temptation lurks!
    Have a great time at your workshop :-)
    Hugs, LLJ 25 xx

  5. Such a good idea to ring-fence the Xmas goodies! a dedicated project box is great - and that way you can always find the after-sales goodies you grabbed the year before instead of playing hunt and find (or not!) with them like I do :)

    Happy WOYWW!

  6. Hi Ali, I made it! Lucky you going to a workshop, I wish. Looks like you have a fair few Christmasy bits there.
    Love the photos but glad I´m not there although its a cloudy day today.
    Take care, Jan x

  7. Wow love the frost pics. Looks like you have Christmas well in hand. I am taking Anna's class in January. I know I am jumping out of my skin in anticipation. I hope you enjoy your class. Peg R #83
