WOYWW 29th Dec and JYC

All that preparation and hard work and there it is gone.... Christmas is over for another year and here we are doing another What's on Your Work Desk Wednesday... the last one for 2010!!
I am still plugging away at my journal pages... still way behind but if I could get a couple of hours of good scrapping time in, I am sure I could catch up!! LOL
I finally finished the weather page... it took me two days to find those little thermometers... you know when you have something but not a cookin clue where you have put them?  I looked in every jar and box in the scraproom and finally found them in a tub on the shelf but I think they are perfect for this page!
and my gift wrap page is completed - I love my gift wrap from this year... it is double sided!!  yep, double sided Christmas paper, I found a huge roll of it in Costco this year but as its 45 metres long I may have it for a couple more Christmas' yet!! ;)
Here is Pandora on the high ledge with one of my Christmas presents next to her... a wire dress form to go with the bird cages that live up there.
Tom-Tom also had to inspect the new item on the ledge.... 
Don't forget to check out Julia, AKA Chief Inspector Dunnit, for the complete list of desks to snoop at!


  1. I stopped by a few minutes ago and your post wasn't up yet. But it was well worth staying up for.

    I am going to have to declare you the Queen of Embellishments. You put more things on a page than anyone I know. AND, you do it with class because it's never overdone. I think those thermometers were well worth the hunt. They are the perfect embellishments for that page. And of course, I like the wrap page, too.

    I'm a bit envious of your wire dress form. Now I see why you liked the torsos from the scrapbook store. Yours is much nicer, I must add!

    Have a great Wednesday. I'm off to find something to eat, since I just realized I hadn't eaten today.

  2. I think your weather page is really cool! LOL no pun intended. Have a Happy New Year!! #4

  3. What alovely set of jouranl pages and wow love those wee embellishments especially the thermos well worth the hunt.Have fab new year wishing you health,happiness and Creative Craftyness in 2011

  4. The thermometers are perfect and the idea of documenting your gift wrap is perfect too! Look at that Pandora, keeping that shelf nice and dust free for you - makes me a little giddy but there is some nice new company for him up there! Have a Happy New Year! See you in 2011!

  5. I enjoyed my peek at your desk and into your neat house! Love the dress form and your pretty projects! Patsy from

  6. Theres always to much to craft and never enough time! I think we are always playing Your journal is looking great!

    Thanks for the peek and sharing, hugs Marjo #10

  7. The thermometres are perfect! A great Christmas wrapping page. Costco does sell big rolls of wrapping paper. I think my mom has one she purchased over 3 years ago...

  8. Well, here's a WOW from me for WOYWW. Although, lovely as your desk is, my wow is for the two fabulous pages you showed. They're gorgeous. It was definitely worth the hunt to find the thermometers. They add a wonderfully quirky touch to the vintage look. Just perfect.

    Happy New Year.
    cheers, rachel #15

  9. The thermometers WERE perfect for your page! - Thanks for sharing your space.

    I'm #20 on the WOYWW list this week. Stop by for a visit when you get a chance.

    Happy *almost* New Year!

  10. Very tidy, and lovely craft projects too !!

  11. I agree that those thermometers were well worth the hunt. And the dress form is beautiful. I love your pictures of the cats playing with their presents; I am sure that the little cage will be batted all around the house (when Pandora isn't doing her "I'm too cool to play" look!).

  12. Those little thermometers are so cute! Great pages. We have some double sided Costco wrapping paper too!

    The kitties look as inquisitive as ever :-)


  13. Your JYC is coming along - the pages are beautiful.

    The dress form is perfect to go with the bird cages - will you be building an extension at home for all these goodies? You have your wonderful mask wall so you will have to have somewhere to display the cages.

    Hope you get some scrapping time.

  14. The wire dress form is perfectly adorned with Pandora at her side. Love those kittys. Well done for hunting out just what you needed for the journal page. I have a horrible habit of cleaning up and then I can never find it. Thanks for the last peek in 2010.
    Have a lovely new year.
