WOYWW 80 - the oh cr*p one

Here we are again, WOYWWing with the world.  For more info, for those completely clueless as to what I've just said, go to Julia's place to find out exactly what I'm on about.

Me - here's my desk.  A hive of industry.  Quite literally, seeing as there's a load of scrap lead frame (that's lead sounding leed not lead sounding led) which I was originally going to use to make a Christmas decoration for the competition at work.  Except that I'm not now, as the deadline is today and we had panto last night and and and.... well, time just ran out on me. 



Hence the oh cr*p in the title.  I've not written a single Christmas card and posted it yet.  Actually, that's a lie, cos I did the one I needed to send to Oz.  But otherwise? Nada.

The other major item on my desk is the bunting from the bunting swap.  Yay and thrice yay!  I will put up a photo once I've strung it all and found a good home for it.

Never let it be said, though, that I don't do any crafting.  This week I've just finished and posted my decorations for the Christmas Decoration swap on UK Stampers.  I did five in total, one in modern colours like immediately below, and four in the red and gold (further down).  I used Lord TH's alcohol inks to colour (can't remember which ones for the mo, but can find them if anyone is really that interested!), Inkadinkado and Habico stamps, Gold Krylon and clear UTEE.  Simples!




Yipes!  Gotta run - late for work..... Catch you on the hop!

Oh you are in a pickle, still who cares about the mess, glad you got your bunting and i love the decorations you made, especially the extra one for me xx

Your hangings are fabulous and I got very excited when I thought you meant lead as prounounced, 'led' as that would have been something new and exciting. I thought you may have been into lead-light windows. That would be good for Christmas.
Anyway, I love what you have made and I am not disappointed.

Can you buy lead for paper crafts, I wonder?

You sound like me. I'm still making cards, haven't really started my gifts, and . . . well, you get the picture. I love the start of the bunting. And your decorations are very festive (#4).
