WOYWW 183

Here I am, three weeks before Christmas and still making cards!

We have an idea at CCW to make 5 cards on the 25th of each month through 2013 so that, when November hits us in the face, as it generally does, we’ll have 50 cards, all done and dusted. Hmmm will I keep it up? Well, I fully intend to … at the moment.

Anyway it’s Wednesday and you are probably here snooping at my desk, so here it is …

05.12.12

… centre stage is the card I have just finished for baby Beth and on the work mat is a pile of penguins waiting to be put on the last of my cards … then I’m done … yay!
To visit some more workdesks, hop over to What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday and click on a few of the linkies.

Jennie Hart said...

Aww, that card is so cute. You have done well with the cards this year. I like the idea of making them throughout the year. I tried that last year and I didn't succeed, but I am always willing to give it a go! xxx

Helen said...

Trouble with trying to make cards during the year is I never feel in the spirit till October... or November... good luck and I love the baby card. Helen, 5

Love the card - I wonder what the collective noun for a group of penguins is?? A slide, a slither...hmmm, I'm going to have to look that up. Anyhow, there's one on your desk!!!
Hugs, LLJ #30 xx

MiniOwner said...

A colony of penguins, I think. :o)

Eliza said...

Congrats on being no 1 today, good job. Love the card and those penguins are really cute, are you sure they are not breeding there?

Congrats on the number one spot!! The CCW plan sounds good... but I find it really hard to Christmas craft even in November (feels too early for me!), so I think I'd probably be useless!!

Love the Beth card, and the penguins look so cute all lined up ready for action... Happy WOYWW!

Julia Dunnit said...

So it seems the competition for No 1 slot is ON! Makes me laugh! I love a desk that has a pile of penguins on it. Honestly, I wouldnt cope in the real world!

House of Bears said...

Love those penguins, and the card, even if it is covering half of poor smiley pot. At least he still got to wink at usnthough!

Thanks for visiting the bears this week. :)

butlersabroad said...

Good to finally get the Christmas cards done, I've been trying to write mine, that's the worst job ever!! Congrats on the number 1 spot.

PS. Can't find a mini anywhere!!

ellie said...

great idea about doing 5 cards a month-may have to try that one! love your wee penguins-sooo cute x

Sunshine Girl said...

Well done on top spot! your cards look nice and well done on nearly having them done - mine this year consisted of putting last years tags and left overs onto cards so it does help to be ahead if you can! Sunshine Girl - no 21.

Monica said...

love the penguins and quite an efficient system.

scrappystickyinkymess said...

If I actually made loads of cards I would totally do your idea. Fab planning and not leaving it till the last minute :) but I make and send so few it only takes me a day. Your penguins look very sweet!

Happy WOYWW

Love those adorable little oenguins...they look like they are marching across your desk!

Sue said...

I am still making cards too! - Your work desk looks a lot tidier than mine!!

Dainty Diva said...

I have a few cards made but need to make more. Great idea to make them all doing the year. But then in Dec you see new stuff. It's really a never ending situation. Love the penguins. #105

Bernice said...

Cute penguins - I haven't actually started on my Christmas cards yet!!

Deb's Pen Pot said...

Good 25th plan...I like it! Being that I work in retail and we have Christmas for 3 months not just 3 days, I get a bit grumpy come December - so I might adapt your idea and try to buy a small pressie on the 25th of each month next year, to see if I can stave off some Xmas stress! Have a good WOYWW, Deb # 106 x

Twiglet said...

Well done No 1! I have been making cards today too - at last I have got round to it!! x Jo

susibee said...

Well done on making all your cards. Mine are still at the planning stage and probably won't get any further than that this year lol!
Your desk is very tidy.

fairy thoughts said...

well done for getting the no 1 spot. Cute penguins on your cards . . . I still have not made any yet, I made a few in January while I was still 'in the zone'. good luck with the plan

MaggieC said...

WOW NO 1 this week. I joined Rudolph Day at the start of this year, the idea being to make at least one card on the 25th of the month. I had actually got enough cards done by August, but I still have not done the inserts or written them, so time is still very short. Good luck with your resolution. xx Maggie #62

Renee said...

I adore penguins...these are so cute! I love the 5 cards a month idea...will have to try it out because I am usually panicing about now! Thanks for sharing your desk with us.
Hugs, Renee (#103)

Katherine (sutty) said...

Super cards - love the penguins and are those some of the prima light bulbs on your desk too ?

slowlaneblog.com said...

As is my normal way I am late visiting!!! Those penguins are to cute. I love the Idea of making one Christmas Card each month to have ready for Christmas....but I doubt it would become a reality...lol

Love your little penguin cards, totally cute, but I'm totally distracted by Hamish - hope he don't get fat with all my feeding ;)
Thank you so much for your nice comment on my blog.
