WOYWW 179

Wednesdays come around so quickly! So what have I been up to? On my desk is the latest minibook I’ve been making with my friend, Jackie. She’s so very patient! I don’t know how many times I messed up the cover but I got there in the end!

7.11.12

At the back you can see the ‘left over’ chocolates from my reindeer noses (click the page tab at the top of my blog – there’s a competition!) and on the right is a gorgeous pile of hand made buttons that just arrived from Susibee Buttons.

I hope you’ve enjoyed your visit and if you’d like to see some more craft desks go to What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday and click on a few.

Lovely mini book. I wish I could send you the monkeys but they are destined for places elsewhere, if I ever have any spare I know where to send them.

What a lovely mini book. Our real purpose for visiting you every week is to see the smiley tin though. ;)

Fab mini- love the look of it so far, but can't wait to see it done! Love The Snowman, but my kids seem to outgrown it - sad but I expect they will come back to it one day....

Love the soft colors on your book. I checked out the reindeer post, those are so cute, but I'm afraid there wouldn't be many noses left on my desk. LOL Thanks for stopping by my blog.

I love that story "The Snowman", it's one of my favorites, and the video that was made is so calming and beautiful. That's a great cover, thanks for stopping by my blog. Barb

Did you know there is a new version of The Snowman coming out for Christmas this year? From what I have seen, I think I prefer the gentleness of the original. I love the look of your book too. Have you decided what you will do with it when you have finished? Thank you for your visit this week, and I hope you have a good time sorting out your stash as well. xx Maggie #40

Shoshi said...

Your book is lovely. You are certainly getting very busy for Christmas with lots of creating going on! Thanks for your visit, and thanks for missing me! For some reason people are being linked to WOYWW 176 instead of 179 this week - this isn't the first time it's happened, and I'm not sure why, or what to do - must contact Julia and find out!!

Happy belated WOYWW,
