WOYWW 76

It's wednesday and that means Julia has a lovely list of ladies all linking to her blog and showing their desks. Wanna join in? Click on the link and it will take you there.

My desk still has christmas stuff on it, although i really should be doing some birthday cards as i have a few in December.
Isn't it funny, once people know you make cards they get quite insulted if you send them a shop bought one. That is all well and good, but i just dont seem to have enough hours in the day to make all the cards i need.



This post was prepared Sunday, and the photos were taken on Monday night actually because it is Bayram here on Tuesday so that means Tuesday and Wednesday we will be round at my mother-in-laws. Death by over feeding, but it all tastes so good. My diet is so not happening this week.

Incase you are wondering about the tealights, we had a power cut at the weekend, and i decided to leave them handy incase the power went again. Might investigate OTT lights when i am in UK.

The shoebox is telling me that it needs to be filled with more christmas cards.

Thanks for all the lovely comments last week. Sorry i never managed to get to everyone on Julia's list, it was such a hectic week. I promise to try harder this week.

Have a great wednesday, and happy hopping.

Yes - some people are most disappointed with shop-bought once they know - the pressure!

Sherry said...

It is truly difficult to visit everyone's desk, so if I didn't get to you last week, here I am now! :-) Your desk looks very tidy, yet messy. A sign of great creativity. Thanks for sharing your desk. Happy WOYWW!

Kym's Crafty Cards said...

Certainly a busy desk here but lots of nice things have been brought out to play with. Thanks for sharing your workspace with us. Best wishes, Kym xxx (WOYWW No 34)

Ciara said...

Totally know what you mean about people being uphappy if they get a shop bought card. It's like they're offended because you've not made the effort! It's also a reason I keep a box of cards in my cupboard at work!

Hope you've enjoyed all that yummy food :-)

Scrapcollectr said...

I know just what you mean about people expecting hand made cards! I once saw a really cute one for my dh and he was insulted that I bought it in lieu of making one. Yeesh! I've painted myself into a corner. Lol Your desk looks like its waiting for you to come back.... *smile*
Thx for visiting!

Great looking desk and I do agree with what you say about people expecting a handmade card now! S #16

Nicky said...

love your desk - hope you have been well fed at you in-laws - thanks for sharing

Elizabeth said...

I know what you mean about the expectation rising in family and friends when they know you make cards. The fairy stamps are lovely. Your desk is a really interesting snoop. Elizabeth x

hope your shoe box gets filled up soon, I've made a few over the year otherwise my box wouldn't have very many in it.

peggy aplSEEDS said...

i looked up Bayram and learned something again from joining WOYWW! i have visited Turkey and enjoyed the veggies and cheese. reading your post reminded me of those good meals!
happy WOYWW from #20!

Kalyber said...

I'm lucky if I get cards our, store bought or otherwise. I wonder if those with their noses out of joint save your cards. I quit sending cards to my sister - she would chuck them or send them back so I could reuse the brads - grr

karen said...

Creative and crafty workdesk you have there!
Good luck with the cards! I am new to cardmaking so I don't have the pressure from family and friends yet. But I better start making lots of back-up cards now, lol!

Mrs A. said...

Such a neat tidy desk. I had to clear everything off mine today as my 2yr old grandson is coming to stay overnight and needs to use the same room. Must remember not to open cupboard door otherwise it will all spill out on floor! I'm sure all your cards will get done in time.

Chrissie said...

Sorry I'm so late visiting, I've been a bit busy!
Death by overfeeding?
What a way to go!
Chrissie

Daniele said...

Christams comes and I never make enough so have to resort to shop brought, looks like your desk is very busy at the moment
hugs

Candace said...

Saw your carrots on the next post, strange how the colour disappeared when you cooked them. Hope they taste great

Thanks for sharing your crafting space

Enjoy your weekend, Hugs Candace #36

voodoo vixen said...

Obviously my cards are not of your standard... i think people prefer me to go and buy them!! LOL
Your desk looks pretty tidy and I am sure you could just give all the Christmasy stuff a shove and have room for your birthday stash!! Sorry I am so late in visiting.... Annette #9

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

I hope you had a wonderful holiday. I loved the "death" statement. I may have to use that on Thursday when we celebrate Thanksgiving. Sorry I'm so late getting here. You would think since I had most of my obligations out of the way, I would have freed up a bit more computer time. Unfortunately, what happened was, I was so far behind, I became overwhelmed. Will try to do better this week.
