What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday? #170

It’s the last WOYWW? of the school holidays and in the interests of full disclosure this photo was actually taken yesterday afternoon.

I was busy coming up with ways to use seasonal stamps in a non seasonal way. The gingerbread man and the mug were easy, but no bright ideas for the candy cane yet. If you’re not horrified by the idea of Christmas cards in September then my previous efforts can be seen here.

A rare thing happened yesterday. I got the whole kitchen table to myself. This is what the other half looks like when that small miracle occurs. So much easier than running back and forth to the lounge to use the big tools.

So that’s it from me for today. Short and sweet as Julia, our lovely host, likes it.

I like the snowflake mug very much - that could work well as a C card for your friends!
Don't you take good photos? They're never run of the mill - the 2nd one, for example, love the quadrant of the fruit bowl in the top RH of the pic! Daft, I know, but I like it!

How about using a candy cane as an umbrella handle and you could use twine or paper or anything to make the fabric part of the brolly?

I love that photo with the bowl of fruit artistically peeping in at the corner :)

Great work table with plenty to keep you busy. My idea for the cane canes is having a bauble hanging from the end of it.

I like the use of the snowflake mug and candy canes make great hearts stamped connected together. dani 137

Hhhmmm... candy canes, tricky. I bet someone from SU has come up with a fab idea by now, which reminds me I need to find the reindeer projects that use the owl punch.

The dreaded C word again! Its only September people!
Love that mug and the gingerbread men I can deal with.
Enjoy the last little bit of school holidays, mine come to an abrupt halt on Tuesday next week. Where did that months holiday go? I am sure somebody came in the night and stole two weeks.
Happy belated WOYWW!
