What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday - Week 343

Hello Everyone,

It's the last Wednesday of the year and so the last opportunity to join in with Julia and friends for WOYWW 2015.
And, unlike last week, I can show my desk today because it isn't half the mess it was last week! Though I have to admit that all I've done in the last seven days is clear the stuff that was there and set out the materials for my 2015 Christmas Journal ... a pile of photos from previous Christmases - some of which will be included in the album - a tray of embellishments, bowls holding inks and punches and various other bits and bobs that may or may not come in useful. As you can see, I've made a start but time is running out and I'd like to complete it before we are too far into the new year. I'd better get a wriggle on then! I have the prompts, the notes, the photographs - I just need the time!!!

However, there is just one problem ...
... a new toy that is proving to be quite a distraction!

Before I go I'd just like to thank you for the fun and friendship experienced each Wednesday throughout 2015 and wish you a Healthy, Happy and Prosperous New Year. I hope that 2016 brings you all you wish for yourself and yours.


  1. What a fab distraction Ellie....Just my sort of new toy. Here's to you enjoying your new year celebrations and lots of fun and crafty times in 2016.....alas I had the night from hell last night, ending up sat up on the settee at 4 this morning to ease the coughing so I'm not feeling like celebrations or crafting at the mo.
    Lets hope the New Year comes with better health for everyone and lots of shared crafty times.
