Christmas is Coming To An Untidy Workplace Near You .....

Oh yes it is - well in my head anyway - and my purse - lol.  Today was a day off and my daughter drove me over to The Craft Barn for a spot of shopping.  This as a thank you for whole day baby sitting yesterday with The Gorgeous One, aka Finley William.  Have a look here for for some utter gorgeousness ......
Anyways, I have it in my head that Christmas 2010 is going to be handmade - loads of ideas buzzing around in there lol - and these are my purchases - for the time being ......
 
I'm going to have a lot of fun with this lot ....
Also today, I got a parcel from Once Upon a Stamp.  I am so into the Nesties and the JustRite stamps and they had a couple of the Christmas Stamp Ensemble sets left in stock, which have now been discontinued. - so I'm a happy bunny....
These are part of my Christmas plans as well  ....
  
It's such a shame that Robert and Gordon won't be at Ally Pally this year - but they will be at Stevenage  this month and the NEC at the end of March.  They have some new and exciting things coming soon - you can read all about it here ....
I thought I would leave you with this piccie of my craft room/office workspace (No. 1 son's former bedroom).  I have been reading about Wednesday being a sort of 'show and tell' day about where you craft .  I don't participate in this but my space has been appallingly bad since the weekend - even by my standards - lol .....
Linda E put the idea in my head- she usually shows a very neat and tidy work space.  There isn't a photo of her space today but her Blog is great - have a browse- and note, she will be a cover girl this Friday .....
Anyways off to do a bit of accounting - how much have I spent ????

well Sue what can I say ...... a little bird we both know has hinted to me that you may be taking a video camera to the NEC. Well that's fine if its a silent type, there's no way that it will catch me either in person or in voice. Hand modelling may be but definately a no no to face and voice. I will be a nervous wreck all day if you do.....

Oh yes - and forgot to tell you - the music score has been arranged by one who knows about these things. Your part is to the theme music from Chariots of Fire - bling bling bling bling bling bling .....
Eat your heart out Julia Roberts ....
