WOYWW 179 not much to see really

Hi wednesday peepers
Oh my, wednesday again sooooo soon! Queen of the blog hops Julia says keep it short so here it is. Dont know what I am on about, check it out here stamping-ground.

Not much going on here I'm afraid..... no mojo,  still recovering from my cold a few weeks ago.
Most of  the 'stuff' has just been dumped here today.
The big box of pencils is there because I wanted some wax crayons for GD Erin to draw with today, she prefered the red one . . .Mmmm, very tasty . . ..  so we stopped that game he he!
The green ribbon I had just cut out of the  jumper I am wearing today, I always do this . . .  very useful for cards, dont you know!
 Finally the pretty wrapping paper roll is from work  . . . .to make some display cards with.

This is my desk later in the afternoon while Erin was asleep, I did managed to make  some  cards, I don't really use peel offs but these black trees  are quite interesting, they are layered over some holographic paper.
Well thats about it.
You may have heard this before . . .  but please leave your name and no. and I will get back to you after work.
Have a great week and happy crafting

  4. Lovely cards! Thanks for the peek! Nan 19

  5. I like the black trees - they're really effective! And you're not alone, I keep bits of ribbon from everything!!
    Hugs, LLJ ~58 xx

  6. I cut the ribbon off from the inside of the clothes to reuse in my crafts.
    Your mojo must just be starting to return because you've made a few lovely cards. Jill #61

  7. I always take the ribbon from the inside of clothes too!! Hope your mojo comes back soon, it's been a while since that cold of yours! Helen 4

  8. Nice busy desk there - I reuse clothes ribbons too (well I take them off and put them in my ribbon box at least!), like those Christmas trees they look very effective dont they. Thanks for sharing - Sunshine Girl No. 54

  9. Hello!
    How is our beading teacher - looks like you are still recovering from that cold - GD liking the red crayon - ha, ha I would think it was VERY tasty! Who wouldn't pick red????
    Lots of hugs,
    Cardarian no.75

  10. I like your cards - clever to use that very pretty paper, and so much cheaper than 'craft' paper.
    Thought I was the only one who cut the ribbon 'hangers' from jumpers, only trouble is I keep finding my jumpers on the floor of the wardrobe.

  11. Hee hee I cut ribbon out of clothes too! I'd say mojo isn't far off you seem to be busy and crafting well! Take care. Zo xx 82

  12. Hi Janet sorry I didn't get back to visit you last week - I don't know where my time disappeared to - something to do with Halloween I expect. I love those papers you have been using on your cards - they have a fresh Scandinavian feel. Make the most of crafting in the nap times they don't last long :-) Happy WOYWW to you from Helen 56

  13. What great Christmas card makes! I too am also looking for items that can be used in my crafting, my have to start snipping ribbon from my tops / jumpers :)

    Please hop by my desk #87 Lauren x

  14. Hi Janet - sorry to hear you are still not completely recovered from that darned cold. LOL at Erin and the red crayon. Your card making is looking good. Happy Wednesday. :o)

  15. I just have a vision of you sat with a holey jumper where you´ve cut out bits for crafting, may have to buy some jumpers with ribbons in the future.

  16. I'm glad you managed to sneek some crafty time while you GD took her nap. I love those cards.
    I'm glad I'm not the only one who keeps those jumper ribbons. I even have my friends saving them for me too!!
    Happy WOYWW
    Hugs Lisax #71

  17. Glad you got some Christmas cards made it can be quite daunting can't it? BJ#30

  18. Hello there, thanks for visiting the bears earlier, we started on the Christmas cards a while back, and are still trying to finish them!

  19. Great looking cards! I save all my ribbon also...never can tell when it will come in handy for something! Thanks for visiting my desk this week and thanks for sharing. Vickie #77

  20. Love the card you are working on - I too save all my ribbon from clothing and my friends do for me as well - sorry I didnt come an visit last week - was 'ONE' of those weeks when I just seemed to run out of time - have a great Wednesday Nicky - 129

  21. It is looking good on your desk. I bought the neatest matte silver embossed wrapping paper once and hid it. I ended up getting a gift wrapped in it since hubby doesn't understand what wrapping paper hidden in a corner is all about. The cards you made with your wrapping paper are really nice. I'm gunshy on wrapping paper now though, besides I have enough of the real stuff.

  22. Thanks for stopping by and here's hoping MOJO comes around. I hate it when it leaves...nice to take advantage of some quiet time. Cards are great. Have a fun week.

  23. Hi Janet,

    Oh that darn Mojo -- he sure works on his own schedule! I hope you are fully recovered from your cold. It's a bummer that it's been lingering on.

    I just wonder, were you wearing the jumper while you ripped out the ribbon?!? Tee hee

    Thanks for visiting me already! Hugs, Kay #5

  24. Being sick is one of the quickest ways to lose your mojo, no doubt about it--glad to hear you're feeling better, though!

    #129ish this week

  25. I think most of us keep our ribbons out of cardigans and jumpers! I even have most of the girls in work giving me theirs!
    Nice cards...I am not a fan of peeloffs either but these are good!
    BTW I have finished my keyring!! yeay! Coming soon to a blog near you! LOL!

  26. Hi Jan.....I have just posted it if you have time to peep!

    thanks again.
