WOYWW # 181

pal·in·drome  ˈpalinˌdrōm/  noun:

A word, phrase, or sequence that reads the same backward as forward, e.g., madam or nurses run or a man, a plan, Panama!.


Good morning and welcome to a palindromic Wednesday (21.11.12!) I’m fond of palindromes – my niece Anna could say, ‘I’m a palindrome’ when she was very tiny. :o)

Anyway, I’m wittering – you’re here to see my desk which is ‘beginning to look a lot like Christmas’.

21.11.12On the left are the cards I did with my mum and sister yesterday (see previous post)  and on the right are some gift boxes I’ve been making for our ‘table presents’ on Christmas Day. Oh and my Washi tape collection (centre) has grown to needing a second jailer’s ring!

Right I’m off to hop round some more workdesks on What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday. Thanks for visiting mine.

great looking desk! I have given up on rings for the washi tape and went over to a box of their own. I love the stuff but rarely use it cause I don't want to use it up! Love all the cards in the previous post. Thanks for sharing and have a great week. Vickie #2

Lovely rolls of washi - clever storage, making it easy to get access to them. Love the little gift boxes, and the cards are great. Happy WOYWW!

Lovely Christmassy workdesk! I am enjoying seeing Christmas arrive early this year by visiting people's work desks. I love the cards and boxes - I really should get on with some Christmas stuff too. Happy WOYWW! xxx Laura #51

I missed retuning your visit last week so you are on my list for this week!

Not seen the rings for washi tape idea. I like it a lot :) I don't have a ton of it so might work for me. Happy to read back that your sister has caught the bug :) Mine too, a bit, but she is more digi scrapping and some cardmaking at the moment. But it's nice when it's a "family affair" isn't it?

Happy WOYWW!

Loving the craftiness on your desk. And loving the abundance of washi tape - one can never have too much washi tape...can they? :D x

Gift boxes are a great idea. We're hoping to do some from our friend's silhouette machine. I hope Smiley pot is getting his own Christmas decoration?

Love from The Bears @#78 this week.

Jailer's rings, ha! great collection I must say. I like the yellow stars, my fave shape for a star. Really pretty white on white card.

Lunch Lady Jan said...

I like palindromes too!! We've been finding lots of them in school recently :)
Your rosette Christmas cards in the previous post are really gorgeous, very stylish!
Hugs, LLJ #36 xx

The washi tape holder is a good idea, must buy a few more so I can use it

I knew a girl called Hannah who told a date she was a [alindrome. He didn't have a sense of humour and left. Oh well. I love your Wash tape collection, the yellow stars and the snowman box - all brilliant! x
