WOYWW.....133...Wishing You All a Very Happy Christmas

Well can't believe it is Wednesday already let alone the last one before Christmas .Where has the time gone?So time to get on the sleigh and travel around the world to see what all these lovely crafters have been upto since last week.So first hop on the sleigh and off you fly to Julia's Blog the Boss of this wonderful Trip

This is my desk this week exactly the same as last week hu!I have cleaned away after i finished my first ever ...wait for it Configuration box yes i actually did one last weekend .You can see it Here .Love to know what you think?

I have now all my prezzies wrapped, still gotta get couple on friday.But all done packed away ready to go to dad's on thursday!Aint i a good crafting for next couple days prob till after christmas is over. But today is baking day .I have this beautiful receipe for scrummy Snickerdoodles ...cookies,and then some melting moments ,and my daughter will be baking as she promised her grandad a choco cake!So today the kitchen will be busy hopefully but one thing not good my oven making funny noise .Which aint so fingers crossed nothing serious gonna happen in that dept.Thats all i need before crimbo.I do have a friend with me today well every time i craft he's by my side under the table and today is no exception...."Bobbie"He lays on floor at my feet!My faith ful friend!

Oh one last thing i have some birthday ~Candy ~ on the go .As it's my birthday soon on 6th Jan when i will be another year younger.....ah well one can dream can't
Tim Holtz fans you will love this or should i say one of them as i have 2 candy's/2 prizes to givea way.You can check it out HERE . Please your all welcome to join in never know could be YOU....that wins ,don't know till you
Follow the instructions you wont be disappointed and all new goodies.
Plus after christmas just think you may be in for a belated christmas present.....As after all the hype it does seem to be quiet afterwards.Although seemed quiet yesterday we Went to tesco just to pick some bits up to take with us and for when we get back.I couldnt believe how quiet the shop was ,i tell you there was more food reduced due to not selling by due date than customers in shop.Well wasn't surprised think theyd all gone to Aldi! Mind i do love to shop there .The only thing i hate is you get to tills long que and only if your lucky i mean lucky 2 tills open!I do honestly think alot of people are cutting back this year and watching the pennies.....
Well i want to wish you all a very Happy Christmas may you have awonderful time .
Just think this time next week all over yep!and nearly into 2012 scary how the years seem to be flying bye
Love N Hugs

Woo hoo! Happy Birthday for 6th!
Here in the shops it looks like people are boing to be besieged as the trollies are piled so high. For goodness sake, the supermarkets and shops are only closed for one day!! No cut backs to be seen here in Liverpool, I can tell you.
Thanks for your comment.... will check out your candy too!
Happy Christmas!

The elf likes to throw things in the bowl as far as helping with washing up goes! We do have a if it is breakable, NO! rule. Love that in half our posts we are all baking (which in its own way is a form of crafting:) Hope you have a lovely Christmas I am off to look at your links :)

Ann B said...

Just had a second look at your configuration box as I saw it and commented when you posted it - still gorgeous.
Can't believe you are leaving present buying until Friday, I would have the screaming abdabs if I did that - good luck.
Love your little canine friend, the best kind. always there to support, unconditional love and no criticism.
Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy New Year.

You’re so good to have everything finished and ready to go Jude…..and I can smell the baking from here, Lol!
Due to circumstances I’ve not done any of my usual baking this year but I have managed to finish my Christmas shopping this morning. I just need to get it all sorted and wrapped now and then I’ll feel like I’m back in control again.

Love you Christmassy configuration box, you’ve done a fab job there.
Hope you have a very Happy Christmas
Thanks for the chance to join in with your birthday candy.

Angie said...

Sorry I am posting by pasting the same to everyone …I hate to do this but it saves on energy that I lack and time, as I am a slow typer.
THANK YOU so much for your good wishes …they cheered me up so much. I will up date you all on my health issues after the festive break but at least my balance problems have sorted them selves out and I think I shall be well enough to enjoy the Festive Holiday break. I enjoyed reading your post as I always do.
All my good wishes to you and your family. xx

Now see mine are just too big, but all 3 think they are lap dogs, Rottie, Border Collie, and the biggest Lapdog, the Great Dane, and I CANNOT cook with them under my feet in the kitchen, the strides become too big and I end up doing the splits!
Hope you have a wonderful time at the Families, and hope all the Baking has been done,
Happy belated WOYWW and if I dont pop back before, Merry Christmas,
