been Christmasing like crazy--What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday, #235

Christmas, that's what's on my workdesk!  I need to snap a few of the
advent calendar (yes, another one!) made at my friend's arty party Saturday;
still adding trims and embellishments, but it's hanging on the mantel, and getting
extra attention a bit at a time, as she stitched us all 25 tiny muslin bags to stamp--
don't you wish she was YOUR friend, too???

Anyway, here is some of what's been on my desk lately--kind of a recap of
the last week, sorry if you've already seen these, been Christmas-ing like
crazy lately:
Shabby Christmas themed tag book for Unruly Paper Arts--
easy tutorial on the Unruly blogozine
 Altered baby shoe and altered canning jar band ornaments for the annual
FREE Christmas issue of Altered Arts Magazine:
Yes, it really is a free issue--enjoy!

There are directions for these in the free digi mag
Have a great What's On Your Workdesk, Wednesday, everyone!!!  I apologize
if I missed you last week, and will be sure to check the comments and visit all my
bloggy buddies from last week first this week, yes?  :)

PS--Google+ users, sometimes I can't find blog links, but will try and hunt you down!
Also, the envelope advent calendar (not the fabric pocket one) is posted HERE.

I'm trying to Christmas like Crazy but it just ain't happening. We are heading away for a week prior to the big Day so hopefully that may recharge the batteries and I will bring it all home with a mad dash to Christmas Day. Loving all your projects. Danie xx

You have certainly been having a lot of fun "Christmassing". Lots to look at today - and I have peeped back at your advent calendar envelopes - they are great all hung up. Well done.
Have a good week, and thanks for visiting already.

Wow, you are being very creative and productive this week, Trisha! Lovely work and the digi stuff is great. I haven't done any of that for ages.

Thanks so much for your lovely comment, and so glad you like my new ARTHaven. Still a way to go before it's organised to my satisfaction but we're getting there, and at least I can work in there now, which is just great! Once I'm a bit more organised I'll do the video tour.

Happy WOYWW,

Wish I'd starting making tag books, instead of using file folders. Yours is lovely. And I'm not just impressed, I'm going to imitate those jar lid rings. I have SO many of them, it isn't funny.

Thanks for stopping by earlier. Happy WOYWW from #6.

Hi Trisha too!

Wow - lots of fun things to see here. Please tell your friend how wonderful she is to have stitched her friends all those muslin bags! It's so nice to have crafty friends nearby!

I love the vintage look of the can ornaments. The baby shoe altered art is very cool too.

Thank you so much for visiting me already. I knew it would be late in the week before I could do most of my visiting.

Happy belated WOYWW
Peace, Kay (12)
