What's on your workdesk? - Wednesday 132

What's on my workdesk this wednesday - well a lot of mess!

The good news is that the light bulbs got fixed in my room that I craft in - I can't call it my crafting room. I do have a crafting room but it's rather small and so I seem to have spread onto the dining room table so, anyway, I have light!

This is my workspace today - I've been having a mega Christmas Card session. Why oh why do I leave it to the last minute every year! Yet again, I've had to discard any ideas of making some wonderfully creative cards and make do with some quick and simple batch cards. I've used the cuttlebug to give some dimension and used a mixture of printing and cutting on my Silhouette for speed.

Can you see the messy pile of stuff with red circles? That's my nearly finished garland. I've been following a free class at Jessica Sprague with classes uploaded every day for a week and I managed to keep up with the class until Thursday. I've still got to embellish the garland a little more and make the box that it goes into for storage. It was a great class and I learnt how to use clipping masks in Photoshop so it was well worth the time I spent on it.

In the foreground is my Mac and my Iphone - I couldn't craft without either of these two. My phone is new and the camera on it is fantastic and even better, it has this cloud that hovers over the phone and when I take my photos it magically floats off and puts them on my laptop without me having to upload them - how brill is that?!

If you want to see what others have on their workdesks follow this link, it's great fun.

I'm doing a quick drop in on the WOYWW desks to see what you've all been up to this week. Looks like we are all busy busy this week getting ready for the big day.
Have a great week.

Those are some of the nicest last minute makes I've seen, mine used to be all last minute and they didn't look as good as yours! These days I follow weekly or fortnightly prompts on challenge blogs when I can throughout the year and I ended up with 55 individual cards and a few more quick makes too.
