advent calendar #3 pieces--What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday, #234

First, as it is almost Thanksgiving here, please allow me to say a big THANK YOU
to all my bloggy friends.  I am very grateful for all of you, some I've "known"
for years and "visited" with many times, and those of you I'm just getting to know.

Thank you, too, to Julia, for hosting What's On Your Workdesk?  Wednesday.
You're an inspiration to us all.

So this is what's been on my workdesk:
Stamps from Something Tattered, butterfly image from Altered Pages
These are pieces of yet another advent calendar (yes, I've made three so far this
year, and have a date with an arty friend for Saturday to make another!).  If you'd
like to see the rest of this one, please consider yourself invited to come back Saturday, Nov. 30 for a blog hop, okay?

(The wedding bunting is almost finished, by the way--yay!)

I get to stay home ALL DAY tomorrow, which makes me downright giddy
(seriously, it really does), so I'll be making a WOYWW round then.  :)

UPDATE:  Bunting = finished, whew!  AND if you came via woyww direct link,
don't miss the annual free Christmas issue of Altered Arts Magazine (see HERE).
