WOYWW 133 - Merry Christmas to All!

So here it is.  The Christmas edition of WOYWW.  In honour of the occasion, here is a slightly blurred, but very sparkly looking photo of my Christmas tree.  I would have shown you a picture taken with flash, but that just ruined the festive look.  So you'll have to go with the mellow yellow version.  LOL.

So what is on my workdesk this Wednesday?  For those who are new to the phenomenon created by the ebullient Ms Budd, go to The Stamping Ground for all the deets and the funky roadmap that is the great and wonderful Mr Linky.  And I can honestly say, having sampled the delights last evening, that the sheet cake was truly yummy.  Thanks Julia!

My desk. Oh ROFL.  What do we have here?  Well, yes, this isn't Wednesday's photo, but Tuesday night's, and it appears I have another squatter.  This time Mr B is at it, making a pop out Christmas card for his parents, to deliver tomorrow. 

My desk this week has been a  lap tray in the lounge because that has been the most comfy place to work.  I've still not finished my charmed stocking but I have, er herm, managed to bead two other baubles for ladies who I am honoured to call my friends.  Said baubles have been safely delivered, but I didn't managed to finish them in time for a photo opportunity.  You'll just have to take my word for it that they sparkled elegantly, and hanging on the recipients' trees look baubles.  Fab!

Thank you all for your warm wishes regarding my op.  I've been poked, prodded, stitched and bruised, and am due to make my second attempt to return to work tomorrow (the first being a bit of a fail because I wasn't really well enough, naivety and optimism leading me to think I was...LOL).  The surgeon has found and dealt with one issue on my insides, we just have to wait three months to see if it's worked, and if not, try a different tack.  Joy joy.

Here's to wishing you all a very merry Christmas and see you at Betwixtmas if not before - I will endeavour to do a WUYCT (What's Under Your Christmas Tree) for Christmas Day!

See you on the hop!

Lovely tree and hope the squatter moves out of your way soon! although crafting on a tray in the lounge does sound a very nice alternative! Have a wonderful Christmas. Sunshine Girl – No 38

Beautiful tree and lovely to see Mr B in action. Hope all goes well with you health. We so often forget that we need time to recover. Have a lovely christmas.

Your mellow yellow tree is just wonderful!
My desk can´t be hijacked ´cause all the stuff lying on the floor - nobody but me can´t get there... :D
Have a Merry Christmas!

Beautiful Christmas tree Morti! I see your squater actually sits at the desk and does some work. I thought for awhile mine was just wandering around checking out what I bought till he started borrowing! Hope you and your family enjoy a Merry Christmas holiday. Thanks for sharing. Vickie #44

Neet said...

Hope you made it to work (if that's the place you really wanted to be) and that you soon begin to feel much better and that the results are good. Thanks for the Christmas tree picture, always difficult to photograph (well, my point and shoot photography says so)and so a Wish for a Very Happy Christmas to you and yours. Hugs, Neet #4 xx

Hi there Morti oh Mr B. is a classic - yep definitely needed a pickie to show us! so very sorry to hear all still not A1 let pray that second time in has now fixed it all nicely and in three months it will be all thumbs up on the issues you have had.
Happy WOYWW! and thanks for being a blessing to me through 2012.
All the blessings of the season as we celebrate the birth of the dear Lord Jesus and the greatest gift of all, love Shaz in oz. x #20

Like the idea of a What's Under Your Tree show and tell. I get to open my 'lucky dip' parcel from LB Crafts close-down sale so hoping that will make a good one.
Obviously very crafty in your family if you can get Mr B to make his own cards. My Mr B would think I'd gone a bit odd if I suggested he do the same.
Have a brilliant Christmas and a scintillating New Year.

Your lovely Christmas tree is all the more migical for being slightly blurry, the flash just ruins it. My desk is hijacked often, but I've yet to catch him in the act, but I know he goes in there, especially when the punches are in the wrong drawer or the line of Stickles is knocked over! He always blames my House Mouse stamps getting up to no good!! Have a wonderful Christmas, hope you get lots of rest and recuperation and that you don't need any more hospital visits.

My OH wouldn't know where to start to make a simple flat card!!! Love your Christmas tree in it's golden glow.
Here's hoping next year will bring better health for you but in the meantime enjoy Christmas.
Lots of love JoZarty x
ps Don't miss my blog candy!

next year you must give me clear instructions as to how to make things that turn out like the things I intended them to be, ( a la MortiBaubles)

Have a fab Christmas My Mad Mate,

I love the tree. Just watching Nigel Slater as I catch up with my WOYWW hop. Glass of wine on my table. Parcels wrapped and tree trimmed. Happy Christmas and a Healthy New Year. x Jo

Your tree is gorgeous!!!

Watch out for those squatters - they may try to take over! ;-)

Merry Christmas to you and yours.



I was thinking warm rather than mellow yellow! Good luck with the last minute bits and pieces (well done Mr B!) Merry Christmas to you and all yours x

Julia Dunnit said...

Aw Morti, so lovely to see you both yesterday, and I am thrilled with my beady bauble, really adds another layer to my story tree! Your tree looks gorgeous m'dear...huge enough?!! Wishing you a much much better year..full of recovered health, but before that, take it easy and enjoy the Christmas break.

Elizabeth said...

Hi Morti, I'm impressed to see Mr B takin over your desk and making a card - the EM treats my room as my sanctum sanctorum and would not be seen near it - and as for making a card ... well ... no, it's not going to happen :)) I hope you and your have a very merry Christmas and a happy holiday. Elizabeth x #46

Tracey FK said...
