WOYWW #130

Good morning everyone and welcome to Julia's magic carpet ride that is What's on you Workdesk Wednesday.
Follow the link HERE to climb aboard.
So; my desk this week looks like this
I am sure that across the time zones of planet earth a large percentage of crafters are doing the same as me; prepping for Tim's 12 Tags of Christmas!
However, before I go into that I have this lovely stuff to show you.
I was lucky to be pulled out Jean of Crafty Individuals blog's  hat for follower candy and it arrived yesterday; my choice of stamp and then  along with that a packet of their lovely tags and a compact mirror. I can't wait to use the stamp!
Back to the desk; I decided to cut out all my tags in preparation for the start, so Bradley has been doing that for me, along with a few extras......
Peeping out at the back is some Christmas sparkle in the form of some tinselly stuff from the 99p store
They are Christmas tags after all! I also have my charms at the ready as I'm sure that they will be used by himself as they were new this year! They are resting on my new reindeer flight day, sent to me by the lovely Rachel; thanks for that, I've wanted them for a while now!
I think that I'll do a pre Christmas tag to get the  creative juices going and pop some Christmas music on the Ipod to get the festive season going! If you are doing the Tags this year, have fun, if they are not your thing, have fun in whatever you create!

Lunch Lady Jan said...

Is there such a thing as too much tinsel?? I DON'T THINK SO! Nice stash and a bargain to boot. Great stuff. Like that musical paper from your winnings too, very vintage. Good luck with the tags :D

okienurse said...

very creative desk! I got all my tags cut yesterday and found the Christmas paper stack and the emboss resist Christmas paper, all the Christmas embellies etc. Look forward to this. Been following Mario's posts on Twitter. First tag will probably have pinecones and swirls on it. I am anxious to see the first one! Thanks for sharing and have a great week. Vickie #67

You are really ready for TH and I can't wait to see what you create. Your desk is looking very impressive with that wonderful stamp and other goodies.

Shoshi said...

I love your creative space, Neil - always so busy and upbeat! Great tags there too. Thank you for your comment on my blog - yes, I was away from my ARTHaven but still able to do some crochet/knit creating even if only altering! I was back in my ARTHaven again yesterday so I'm definitely on the mend! Happy WOYWW, Shoshi #62

Morti said...

Love your desk this week - enjoy the TH Tags - would love to join in but I refuse to pay to play.... and to do what he does, I'd need to spend a lot on stash! I might do my own thing based on his schemes of work though!

Terrie said...

Thanks so much for the visit & welcome to WOYWW. As I browsed thru your site I can see you're very creative and really know how to work those tag embellishments! Beautiful work!

voodoo vixen said...

Hello!

I love your work area! Looking forward to seeing your tags! Congratulations on winning the blog candy - I have some offered on my blog now if you would like to visit! I would like your input on my questionaire. Wishing you a happy day!

Hugs,

Barbara Diane

Elizabeth said...

Hi Neil, once again a very entertaining post - love all the stuff you have out in preparation for the TH tags - and the tinsel ribbon is gorgeous. Good luck with the 12 days, Elizabeth x #111

Michelle B said...

This is my first time stopping by. Love your workdesk! Can't wait to see the tags you make. #107

Lisa-Jane said...

I love those dies too and now I have Vagabond envy....

MaggieC said...

Thank you for your visit earlier and your kind comments. I quite like the idea of the Vagabond, but it worries me that you might put something too thick through and break it. Having used the Cuttlebug and knowing how careful you need to be with that, I would be scared of breaking the Vagabond when it is powered and you cannot feel what is happening. Those tags and your preps look amazing.

Tertia said...

Thanks for your visit, I have finally finished those horrible exam papers, so now I can visit without feeling guilty.
Can't wait to see all the tags that you are going to make.
Happy WOYWW
