WOYWW - 99

 Its time for the madness of Whats on Your Workdesk Wednesday - WOYWW
To join in the fun click HERE to see lots of desks
On my desk this week is that starting of 7 cards
I coloured the images Monday night - and cut them out this evening
A few people asked what I brought at ikea last week I am re organising some of storage

 These spice jars were £2 for four - I will need to go back sometime for some more now I now they fit
I also brought these boxes two in a packet.
 The little one is a CD box and hold my A6 Christmas cards I am making for this year
You can see the House Mouse card I was making last week
 The larger box hold A5 cards
I just need to make some dividers to show which sort of cards are where
 This picture shows all my images I cut out tonight
and yes I am doing more Christmas Cards
I will put them together when I next get chance to sit at my desk
Might not be until Thursday evening - life does get in the way sometimes
Have a great weekend
and hope you all enjoy the long weekend
My DH had to work through it but that means I get chance to craft
