Morning all..............Its freezing down here in Gosport today I'm sure its the same all over the UK, my desk was ice cold when I came down this morning and I have had to put a throw over me leather mastermind chair that I sit in to craft as it was so cold it sent a shiver up my spine, unfortunately we don't have the luxury of central heating here, we were going to put it in when we bought the place 5 years ago but didn't get round to it and as we are moving next year (coz they are knocking our place down to redevelop that's another story !!) it seemed silly to do any extra work to it, so hopefully this time next year we will be tucked up in our new house with (I hope) heating.
Still there is an upside to not having central heating Garry pops the hot water bottles our bed half hour before we go up and then we get to snuggle to keep warm ...what could be more romantic !!! lol
Anyway I better stop there and move to whats on my desk today.............well first things first a nice cup of strong black "hot" coffee and quite a bit of mess , but among all the crafty clutter there is the beginnings of my last family Christmas card, its gonna be for Woody who requested a card with Joseph and Mary and as I don't have a stamp with them I decided to use the Sizzix people so that's my next card to finish and I have coloured mistletoe Tilda ready for my just Magnolia challenge card, if I get it finished on time you will see it on the blog later today.
Also on my desk you can see a new MS cupcake stamp and punch set that just came from Simon Say Stamps in the USA which I bought with a voucher that I won on the The Creative card crew challenge so thanks guys for the great prize, I chose a set of Prima corner stamps too which are also on my desk.
There is another new MS boarder punch its the snowflake one I got that a couple of days ago for the bargain price of about £10 from Bunny Zoe crafts she has a sale on.
So do you fancy sharing whats on your desk with Julia and all the girls?? Well then just post your photo on your blog and pop over to Julia's blog Stamping Ground blog and join in all the fun of Whats on your desk Wednesday by leaving a comment on the WOYDW post there so all the girls can come and have a rummage round your desk........... you will soon become hooked and find you can't wait to get over to Julia's place every Wednesday (to meet up with all the crafty girls that take part every week !!)
Thanks for dropping by to check out my little space, have fun................

Your desk is looking interesting with lots of bits tucked away for me to nose at.

Make sure you have a really really big room for crafting in your new house xx

Kaz said...

I bought the chipboard letters from Bubblyfunk, but I think they were probably a Sissix die xx

SueH said...

You’ve made me feel so guilty Susie.
I’m forever winging about how cold I get sitting by the window in my centrally heated craft room and there you are with no heating at all.

Loving all the works in progress and the welcoming cup of coffee……..Black no sugar for me please!

I like that Nativity you've got going on on your desk - you even have an angel hovering over them!! (ok, so it's a fairy!!) And that mug - perfect for cat lovers like me!

Nikki said...

Well Susie if Santa is willing to fly his big Red Butt over to Canada I wouldn't argue at all...
