How quickly this year has gone. I can hardly believe that today is the last Wednesday of the year making this post the last WOYWW. If you pop over to Julia's you can peep at the world's craft desks for the last time this year too.
But hey! don't be sad because next week will see us starting all over again and maybe there will be some new desks to have a look at. Yippee!
Mine isn't very exciting today.
I've just taken this photo so it really does look like this. I was hoping to make a few ATCs from the mountain of bits I have, instead of cutting into more paper and card, but I managed 3 then gave up. The booklet in the foreground is about my new phone, which incidentally, is a nightmare to use. It will take me ages to get used to it with all the technology on it.
I wanted to share another Christmas card with you.

This was sent to me by Gez. It's an acetate card with a concertina base with different stamped images on each fold making a wonderful 3D effect. I absolutely adore this card and given that Gez is suffering badly with vertigo, she has done an amazing job of cutting out the images.
Well, that's all from me today except to wish you all


See you in 2011.

Your desk doesn't look boring. OK it doesn't have a ton of stuff on it, but I think that's probably a good thing as it means you have room to create. And I think you're going to make something amazing with the bits you have. I know I want to play with them.

Thanks for sharing.
cheers, rachel #15

But a nice clear desk can be good for the mind - rest before getting busy again!

Happy New Year to you.

Oh gosh. I feel for your friend. I've had viral vertigo and its awful. Her card is gorgeous, I hope she feels better soon.
Here's hoping you get a good understanding of the phone soon. I bought a Droid in September; still trying to figure the thing out. No one told me I needed a PhD to work it. LOL
Happy New Year!!

Ha ha, I've had my new mobile phone for quite a few months now, it's got all the bells and whistles but I have just about mastered texting, making calls, receiving calls and adding to my directory! Just hate some technology but love, love, love my computer. Your desk looks great to me and I think that it is a good idea to use up scraps. Sorry to hear that Gez is still suffering - her card is gorgeous, a real labour of love. I wish you and yours a healthy and happy New Year. Elizabeth #57

It looks as though something exciting is going to emerge from that desk soon. Love the acetate card - thanks for sharing & compliments to Gez. Hope your battle with technology is soon resolved...

Happy New Year to you and yours.

How nice of you to share Gez's card - it is beautiful and if you hadn't have mentioned the vertigo I never would have remembered! Your desk looks all ready for 2011 and for the phone - just youtube it. I hate manuals! Have a healthy and prosperous New Year. Hauoli makahiki hou!

Susan said...

I nurture a huge pile of scraps but always seem to end up cutting into new paper too!! Oh well, desk isn't boring, just ready for the next crafting session. I have to admit to hating all these fancy phones and I refuse to own one!! People are so amazed that I don't text and managed to get through life without a camera on my phone!!

Have a great New Year

Beautiful card from Gez too.

I'm racing against the clock to wish you a safe, fun filled, joyous New Year with lots of new art and friendships. Gez is a wonderful artist and her card is stunning. Happy New Year (number 2).
