What's on your workdesk Wednesday 499

Hello Creative friends.

I hope you all had a super Christmas?
Our's was filled with food, family and laughter.

I appear to have overslept today, anything past 7am is a lie in for me.
I will blame it on the sherry in my Mother in Laws Trifle..

As it's Wednesday it's time to share what's on our workdesks over at the 
Stamping Ground as it's woyww 499 and the last Wednesday of 2018.

Here's the left overs from the Christmas Crackers, everyone saves scraps they think 
will come in useful. I appear to have gained some of the contents of the crackers too.

There's a button making pressie from my Hubby hoping i'm better at it 
than that pub quiz ha ha!! Maybe show you my attempts next week.

The beautiful Angel is a present from my Dear friend Dorthe. 
She had to join in with the Christmas festivities and watch over us all.

I've got so many Thank you messages and emails to write.
I'll be round to visit asap.

Happy New Year to all those that WoYwW.
There will be one more post from me before the year is out.

Creative Wishes
Tracey xx

I'm behind wishing holiday cheer, too, so you are not alone. Your angel is beautiful and adorable. Even the little pumpkin had to turn away she was so beautiful (grin). Happy holidays, Tracey. I hope your Christmas was fabulous.

Hi Tracey, that's the one thing I forgot to buy this Christmas- crackers! Fortunately one of my daughters had a box, so brought them with her, otherwise there might have been mutiny on Christmas Day. I hope you and your family had a great day. Have a lovely week Heather x #14

Your mother-in-law's trifle sounds just like my mums, so delicious but you wouldn't want to drive afterwards 😉. It sounds like you've been having fun at your craft desk and the angel that was gifted to you is so beautiful! I was very pleased to read that you had a super Christmas too, enjoy the rest of your week and sending you happy and creative wishes for the New Year! J 😊 x

Reading between the lines I guess hubby was fine over the Christmas period? Hope so, and that you had a lovely lovely time - sounds as if you did. Here's hoping 2019 is a better year for you and hubby.
Isn't it funny how we save all those little bits from things like crackers? I do it and sadly they hardly ever get used and then I grumble my craft room is full of junk. Still, you might use yours and not be like me.
Never done a Pub Quiz but willing to give it a try, I tended to watch quiz programmes over Christmas (back was really bad so spent the time in bed with a hottie and my lazy reader glasses so I could see tv from the horizontal position. Sh though not mentioned it to anyone else.
Wishing you and yours a very Happy New Year and a better year healthwise all round.
Hugs, Neet xx
