A site for my handmade cards, accompanied by my photos and written meanderings which are occasionally witty, often tongue-in-cheek, and rarely profound. Beginning in June 2013, you'll also see lots of NBUS, which is an acronym I coined for Never-Before-Used-Schtuff. Feel free to join in, use the acronym, and use up your NBUS too! Thanks for coming by! Have a beverage and enjoy!

WOYWW 185 ~ A Merry Happy Christmas!

Greetings to all my weekly What's on Your Workdesk? Wednesday (WOYWW) wisitors and to our hostess, Julia!

I send my workdesk wishes:
 

Have a piece of delectious homemade toffee!  It was a gift to me, but I am happy to share.  My Christmas cards are done and dusted just when I was getting in the swing of things and still have ideas swirling in my head like sugar plums.  Next year I am definitely joining one of the Christmasy challenges that start appearing around July, because my decision to wait to get started until after Thanksgiving this year was Stew Pid.

OTOH, I could be way ahead for 2013 if I just keep going!
 
~~~
 
Just in time to join the holiday party, please welcome our newest friend, Deanna Jean of Kloset Kreations.  Now you might think Deanna Jean of Kloset Kreations is a cousin of Darnell Jean of djkardkreations, but we're not, fars I know.  What I do know is that she is a very talented card maker and she has an awesome kloset where she kreates!  Please pay her a visit and say hello!  Thank you, Deanna Jean!
 
~~~
 
Enjoy your holiday!   No, seriously, enjoy your holiday
 
In case I don't cyber you until January, allow me to add with a glass of cheer:
 
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!


You guys are WOYWW!  Mwah!!

Happy WOYWW. Perhaps a bit early for a toffee - oh well, it is Xmas! I know how you feel about Xmas cards. I was tidying up my Xmas stash box and kept finding wonderful papers/stamps/ribbons etc, etc. Had loads of new stash that I didn't even use. I started making cards in June this year - perhaps earlier next year?? Merry Xmas. Ali x #31

Ha, ha, ha! Back to bed indeed, I'm at work cause I got no paid time off as a contractor. Himself went back to bed this morning as I seem to have given it to him too, actually it's hit him harder as he spent more time being sick in the bathroom than he spent in bed last night! At least I didn't get that bit! I talked to him earlier and he sounds remarkably cheerful, better out than in I suppose!! I'm just hoping I get rid of this before my wisdom tooth removal, otherwise they might not want to do it. Sounds like a joyful Christmas break either way, lol! Lovely toffee's your friend made you, save me one for when I'm feeling better.

Have a wonderful Christmas with your family,
Hugs
Brenda

Hi Darnell,

I hope you and yours have a wonderful Christmas!

And I think I'm with you. I might make some Christmas cards during this break for next year. I was so bad that I didn't get any made for this year.....

Happy WOYWW
