WOYWW #134

Hi there everyone.
I hope you have all had an amazing Christmas and are enjoying the holiday period. Though I have not had time to do anything in my room I have added to the general mess on my desk so thought I'd pop on and share it with you while the family are in slumberland still!
So; what's that I spy in the middle of the desk; something from Tim?!
Yes' just before Christmas; this package arrived from Tim and Mario with my gift from the 12 tags comment.
Ok ok, I know, you want to see what they sent.
Aren't I blessed; stamps and an embossing folder; neither of which I have so I am thrilled! Then also on my desk is this book which was from my wife, it's amazing and very inspirational!
I'm missing my space but am squeezing as much time with my family before elder daughter returns to Liverpool on Thursday and so hope to actually get some crafting done by next week's desk!
Be blessed everyone and don't forget there are more desks to be seen via Julia over at Stamping Ground.

Books and craft - my two favourite things, add in steampunk and it is definitely a winner. Congrats on the TH win, nice that someone I 'know' won something from the great man himself.

That is certainly a lovely big mess to snoop on! The best one yet from you as you are normally busy but organised.
I'm just back home from the South Coast of England, visiting my family, so quick catch up to thank you for all your lovely comments and fun and inspiration on your blog!
Here's to a great New Year 2012!! Health, Happiness, Peace & Joy, and let's hope we DO meet up in the Pool of Life in 2012!
Love JoZarty x
