Okay, who stole an entire week from me?! Last week I thought we were on 231 now it's 233?! As you can see I'm a bit discombobulated, while I get myself together why not have a snoop around my work desk. After all that's why you're here, right. :)

Alright, here we go....there's three projects fighting for attention on my desk. On the far left are some mini canvases, texture paste and gear stamps waiting to be started. In the middle we have patterns and a house template. The beginnings of a Christmas village (a small village). Then on the right I'm playing with bead weaving. sssshhh it's a gift. ;)

Enjoy your look around.

I will try to visit as many of you as I can...I will be off visiting my sick friend.

Hugs to all!

Celebrate . . .

  10. I had to go back and check my numbering skills! It is 233! Sorry about your time warp - been there myself this week! Bead end to your talents and hey - nothing like picking a quick and easy make as a gift!!

  11. All the projects sound great. Good thing we have back up crafts while we wait for glue to dry. Peg # 46

  12. Love your space this week. Nice and neat and ready for action. I'm afraid as I look around this morning...there is nothing but one huge mess for me. I'm going to have to straighten a bit before I can play today.

  23. Oh, you do have the ability to multi-task, Nan! I could NEVER have three different projects going on on my desk at the same time!! I'm sorry you have a sick friend. Blessings to you for visiting her. Hugs, Darnell

  27. What are you using for templates for the Christmas village? Looking forward to seeing it done. :-)

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and for the nice comments.

    Happy Woyww,

  28. The (small) village looks like it will be neat. Hopefully you'll share once it's done. Do you work on each project a little bit every day or are you ignoring two and favoring one?

  29. Me again with the answers to your questions!
    The packet is Flavahans Irish Rolled Oats which I used to make the flapjacks....
    Yes, it is an open Salt Pig, that's what we call it in the Uk. It's made ofStoneware and keeps the salt incredibly dry....
    The big silver bowl is from my Kitchenaid mixer which I love with a makes wonderful cakes and bread.
    My iPad was there to check out a recipe....I usually throw stuff in and never weigh or measure but baking's different, I am more careful then!
    Hope I've satisfied your curiosity, lol!!

  30. Well whoever took your week swiped a few days of mine, too--if you catch the rascal, let me know, Nan!

  32. Look forward to seeing your Christmas village. Have done the Advent one, and now might try some like yours.
    Happy WOYWW

  33. How crazy is this - someone stole my whole week from me, too! Must have been the same thief. LOL I hope your sick friend is feeling much better soon. April #17

  34. Hi there Nan!

    Hmmm, dreamcycle orange sounds very interesting! I had the stairwell wall painted "Carrot" at one time. When I was trying to sell my condo I toned it down to a shade of yellow! haaaaa

    Have fun making your village!

    Thank you for visiting me already. I'm slowly making it around.

    Happy belated WOYWW
    Peace, Kay (6)

  35. Hi Nan,
    I thought everybody knew about crackers! They are a traditional part of the Christmas table here in the UK (And most commonwealth countries) Basically a tube tied at both ends as you can see in the photo, before closing the one end it gets filled with a little treat, party hat, joke etc and it has a snap that causes a bang when pulled apart. You can buy them ready made but this year I decided to make my own and add my own gifts.

  36. Nan, I feel right at home here....more than one project on your desk is my way to go!!! Can't wait to see your canvas and your village. Cool projects in the making for sure.
    Bear Hugs,

  37. Ooh, bead-weaving sounds interesting - but I'll be patient until after the gift-giving!
