WOYWW - While Horace is Away...

....Pooh gets to play! Yet another Wednesday comes around and we have yet another chance to see what's on the workspaces of crafters worldwide courtesy of Julia at Stamping Ground.

So what's on the bears' desk this week? Well, as you may have read, Horace has taken himself off on a little jaunt around Derbyshire, so it's Pooh here at the desk (I was next in line!)

I thought I'd surprise Horace when he gets back by getting on with the Christmas cards. I know how stressed he gets thinking of all the arty projects he has on the go, so I thought it would be nice for him to come back to one less job to do.

Here's the desk just as I started, with lots of die cuts and plenty of patterned papers to chose from.

Here's a card I made earlier.

Horace, if you read this, we miss you, and hope your holiday is helping you to relax and recharge your arty batteries. Oh, and we hope you manage to find some yummy edible souvenirs to bring home to us.

We're off to enjoy some desks. TTFN.

With love from the bears.


  1. Well done to Pooh for breaching the crafting gap with the Christmas cards. It's good to get your time in the spotlight. Horace will no doubt be having a high old time in Derbyshire, a county with SO much to see. Would highly recommend a trip to Hardwick Hall and the nearby Stainsby Mill. Hugs, Buttons #79

  15. It’s nice you you’re managing to get in some crafting time even though Horace is on his holidays. I’m sure he’ll be thrilled when he sees you’d made a start on the Christmas card list.
