I'm joining in with this week's What's On Your Workdesk (WOYWW)where crafters from all over the world post photos of their desks and talk about what's goin' on in their little corner of the world. If you would like more information, the link will take you to the headquarters, operated superbly by the lovely Julia. Julia has tabs on her site with all the details for you.
Here is my happy desk, where I've just finished off the last of the Thanksgiving cards for this year:
Of special note is the display sill. Today's remarkable creations were made and sent to me by desker Claire of Ham 'n' Mule Designs. Claire recently turned 40 and in celebration she made 40 cards for 40 WOYWWers and I was fortunate enough to receive TWO of them!! Plus another card with a note! How glorious is that?! Thank you again, Claire!
In preparing for Thanksgiving, I even made a card for all of you! I'm so lucky to have made many wonderful friends via this crazy WOYWW and via my other wanderings around the webbing.
As it happens, my Thanksgiving thank you card is perfect for the brand new "Holidays" challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More, although it might stand out like a sore thumb amidst all the stunning Christmas cards!
I love how the piece of burlap goes so well with the NBUS patterned paper. I actually forgot I bought that pad of Fall paper from PTI during the summer and since I was lucky enough to stumble across it yesterday, I HAD to make a card with it before we rush headlong into Christmas!
I hope I'll be forgiven for posting this on Tuesday night. Julia reminded us recently that we are not supposed to link before Wednesday, which makes sense because, after all, it's called What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday. Unfortunately, with the time differences, I'm asleep while most of you are desk hopping and vice versa, so by the time I can physically add my link when I get up on Wednesday morning, a lot of you are done hopping for the week. It's just the way of the world, something to do with moons and revolutions, and possibly even someone named Greenwich. Well, this week I'm going rogue so all my awesome WOYWW friends can join my non-WOYWW friends and see my card and read my message of gratitude:
Thanksgiving is overshadowed by Halloween on one side and Christmas on the other, but on this one day we pause to reflect and be grateful for the people and things that we often take for granite throughout the year. It's an opportunity for me to thank you again for following my little blog and leaving your wonderful comments, both of which bring me great joy and encourage me to keep it up! You are really fantastic, my friends, and I'm very grateful for each of you!
Enjoy the next few days! We've got visiting family and friends and dogs all gathering together for a huge feast and festivities and then, yippie, we have the grandtwins staying over for the weekend! So, unless there is an unexpected lull in the action, I won't see you until next month!! I promise I'll be way fatter.
Happy Thanksgiving! Mwah!!
