WOYWW 184 back again

hi world
well last week I had a brief affair with wordpress. It didn't work out..... all those emails Aggggghhhhh!
So I'm back to blogger however annoying it is sometimes, it's like home .... Ahhh!
Thanks for all the advise about the photo space. I now know how to make my pictures smaller(digitally not size wise) so they don't take up as much space in picasa. I may have to tweek the size .. are these too small to view properly? looks a bit fuzzy to me.
 I will have to pay the money though, fairly soon.... Ah well 'the man' usually wins in the end!

I can  finally show you my desk this week...... but rather gingerly.... Doh!

Aren't they cute?

These fab little men arrived in the post today. They have been die cut for me by the lovely Jo at
thanks Jo, Erin loved them.
I am going to string them onto ribbon as bunting for her new bedroom when  they move house.

I have finally made some Christmas cards... quite a few (36) on Sunday, ok, they won't win any prizes but they do the job.

And finally some of the mess left behind after making, said cards.

Hey you all know why I am telling you this and if you don't, have a little look-see here,   stamping-ground.  carefull it's addictive.... but great fun.... we all love being nosey don't we? Our busy busy hostess Julia is no exception.
Usual rules apply.... please leave your number and I will get back to you (after work)
janet....aka fairy thoughts back on blogger:)

  23. Lovely gingerbread men. Super cards and you made them, that's the main thing.

  24. Hi Janet,

    Wow! You've made a lot of Christmas cards. They look great, by the way. You made me laugh too, which is a double bonus! I'm glad I'm not the only one that makes a mess when making cards. That's one reason why I'm behind on the Christmas cards...... and may not get them out in time!

    Finally, the realtor came and took photos of my place. The flyers are done and now the waiting begins.....


  25. Lovely looking cards on your desk Janet. I have that Gingerbread die and it did not see the light of day this year!
    Merry Christmas to you and your family Janet.


I'd love to know you have popped by so please leave a comment, they are much appreciated.
