WOYWW 233 finally started

Hi lovely peeps
Happy Wednesday one and all. Grab a coffee and a comfy chair and take a whirlwind tour around the globe, hopping from desk to desk. Julia is your personal pilot see her references here. stamping-ground.
My desk this week is a tale of 3 halves...... yes 3!

the right hand side
a button cuff for my Etsy shop, (see the button on the left side bar), ribbon, glue, some stamps and a random yellow ink pad (from my little Tuesday helper)
At the back you can just see the little box I made from an idea by jozart a ....mine is only a gift box hers is fabric and much better

 the left hand side
more ribbon, stamps, a paper pad and lots of snippets of Christmas paper . . . yes I have finally started, but they may not be for me.
 The far left 
Lots of finished Christmas cards, along with the envelopes from last week. . . .sorry Debs they are not home made.
some random sequins . . .  not sure how they got there.
At the back the new easel I brought to photograph cards for the blog.
My box of snippets is still getting smaller, the aim is to empty it by the end of the year. Fat chance!
Well that's me done, so come, on join in do, its great fun and very inspirational. You never know where it will lead you.
I will try to visit everyone who comments and some others too.
Please leave your Mr Linky no 


  1. 3 halves?? Can I have the biggest piece please :-)
    Love that little pyramid box, I saw the deign on Jo's site. It looks great in both fabric and paper. Good luck with the snippet finishing, I don't think I'll ever get through my fabric stash...sigh.... No matter how much I use, it keeps on filling up with new fabric. Mysterious eh??? ;-)
    Hugs, LLJ 41 xx

  2. A lovely bust desk, lots going on. Still haven't done my Christmas cards, have made a start though, thanks for sharing, Donna #40

  3. Good luck with emptying the box of snippets !!!!
    Sounds like you need a couple of days to clear them all

  4. Gorgeous little gift box you've made.

  5. I try so hard to reduce my snippets but they seem to grow all by themselves!!! Good Luck with yours.
    Some gorgeous things on your desk.
    Hugs Lisa x#56

  6. Great pics, I too planned to use up my scraps, even put them in a drawer right behind me to encourage that. Trouble is, for every one I use, I create 3 more- getting nowhere fast. Have a great week, Hugs Shaz #36xx

  7. You have a little bit of this and a little bit of that on your desk. I'm impressed that you got around to using any of your snippets and scraps let alone made a difference in the size of the pile. I have good intentions but they never work out. Now I donate my scraps to a lady who does punch art flowers. It takes the pressure off. I'm impressed with the size of the finished Christmas card pile. Judy #81

  8. Well done for using up snippets.. I try, I really do! Love your desk in 3 halves... maths was never my strong point either! Have a great week Helen 3

  9. I want a bar of chocolate with three halves...would be as delicious as your desk. cuffs and cards missus, you're as busy as ever. I sort of don't blame you for not making envelopes..gah, it's too much for me after the effort of the cards!!

  10. Well done for making an impression on the snippets box. Every time I use a piece from mine, I seem to make two more to go back in! I was inspired by JoZart this week too. I love the way folk generously share their ideas and allow, even encourage us, to have a go for ourselves. Kate x #84

  11. Cute box! Now, I am not sure what a snippet is...I am thinking little pieces of this or that....I have filled up yet another box of pieces of paper, I did not use, I try, so hard to use from that pile, and I do, but like the lady above, I add at least two more back..I guess it's almost time for another "shut my eyes and throw away" time....maybe for January 1, 2014...maybe that's when I will do it....I had a friend who called me a piffer because I saved all my scraps and used scraps am I a piffer or a sniffer? LOL...time to end this reply, don't you think?

    Hugs, Robin #76

  12. OH kay, I'm going to admit--all you woywwers with the finished piles of Christmas cards are starting to make me a little sad. Janet, you may have pushed me over the edge to just buy cards this year, lol!!!!

    Enjoyed your three halves this week, you busy lady!

    Thank you for stopping by,

  13. I love the little box - I am going to try a fabric one. x jo

  14. Hi Jan, the scissor storage block was bought from a company called OPITEC- you can find them on line. Link to the item here:
    They would be easy enough for any handy person with the right sort of tools to make though. Hugs Shaz xx

  15. Hi there Janet,

    Your gift box looks really cool. Well done for using up your bits and pieces!! I definitely need to do that, just as soon as I get organized!

    Thank you for visiting me already. I'm slowly making it around.

    Happy belated WOYWW
    Peace, Kay (6)
