What's on your Work desk this Wednesday 168

Another Wednesday has arrived and this week the kids are back at school and it's time to get down to the serious business of Christmas crafting!  Oh no!  I hear you cry.  I am too LOL.
Soon the yummy parcels will be arriving from PI and I'll be ooooing and arhing over what is inside but before I do, I thought today I'd have a wee play with some new stamps and embellishments that as yet I haven't had chance to open....

Now then what shall I do with these beauties...mmmmm?

Short and sweet from me today I've got a trip planned into my local craft shop for local people and maybe a bit of housework later...then time to play. 
I'll be back later to see what other like minded crafters are up to, you can find out from the lovely Julia's blog here. 
It only remains for me to say have a great Wednesday and thanks for popping by my place.  I tend to visit blogs at random each week but if you leave a comment I will be whizzing by your place first.

What fab stamps - I really like the bare winter tree one. I can just see that in icy blue with silver sparkles! Talking of which, nice bling here, Mrs - you are obviously a magpie like me *grin*

Oh they look like playtime is calling tonight! teehee

It is a busy time of year getting the kids back to school but soon your new routines will be created!
Those trees and backgrounds are just lovely.

I am finally finished the mountain of laundry from the lake. Whew!
We love having company when we are up there but my married daughter says we should make them bring their own bedding and towels and then they would be taking them back home with them! Probably a good idea but the bunkhouse has a double and a twin bed...not everyone has bedding for those sizes so I soldier on with the washing...ugggh.
It is time for me to drag out some stamps and get them inked! See ya next weeks

Your new goodies look so fab! How fun that you get time to play, even if it is to make the dreaded Holiday-that-shall-not-be-named stuff!

I like the goodies I see. Every year I say I'm starting Christmas crafts early, but seem to fail. Maybe this year!!!

Hi Erika,

Looks like you have some nice things to play with there. I hope your outing was fun. Craft shops are always fun....

Next week I'll show a photo of my desk, promise!

Well your Christmas creativity hasn't sent me into a shock because the weather here today has been really wintery...Hail, Thunderstorms and a Hoolie Howling! ;D
And yes I do live in Australia!

Oh boy your desk looks busy...there's obviously a lot of creativity and fun going to be going on!
Thanks for sharing and visiting my desk earlier ~ Happy WOYWW to you too ;D

looks as though you are going to have real fun with all your new goodies. The children over here do not go back to school until the first week in September, so they are all still around. We are waiting till then to go away again on holiday, when things are quieter. Thanks for your visit, and I am sorry but I had to have a tidy up as there was no room to use the brayer and my stamp had vanished too. It is gradually improving, although unexpected (but very welcome) visitors put an end to it all this afternoon. Still friends are more important. have fun. xx #102

Lovely new stash on your desk, Erika - don't we all love to receive it! So exciting!

Thanks for your lovely comment - I'm gradually getting there with my organisation but I don't feel very organised yet - loads to do to get it right! As for booking me to do your room... well... I'd definitely have to think about that... Give me 5 years or so, lol lol!!!

Happy belated WOYWW,
