WOYWW- Cards and such like!

Well hullo there dear friends, here we are again with another Wednesday dawned, I won't risk your wrath by mentioning that it's now only 17 weeks until Christmas day, oops, sorry, I have word vomit!!

Moving swiftly on, we all know what Wednesday means don't we? Yes, another chance to peek at the desks of other crafters worldwide courtesy of Julia at Stamping Ground. If you have no idea what I'm on about then click on the link, take a picture of your workspace and join in, it's not only fun, it's also addictive, and as a very nice added bonus, you can make some great friends along the way.

So, I guess it's time to stop blethering on about it and actually show you the desk this week?

I'm having a card making stint, the images are courtesy of the very talented Mary Anne, a fellow WOYWer, she often has printables on her blog, and I just loved these.

I have a further stashy mess on the bed, ready to make general greetings cards once I've created a few Christmas cards. The bears often make cards for various charities and we felt it was about time we made another batch.

Other bits on the desk include various ATCs, art and friendship cards sent by friends, we had a little change around in the bears bedroom and now have nowhere for the notice board, so the art work that was decorating it is now waiting to be adhered to the wall above the desk.

Remember we had the large overbed unit? Well we Free cycled it to open up the room more and give the appearance of more space. It was fun finding a home for all the accumulated stash we had kept, just in case - so much packaging that we could have opened our own packaging company! We think it looks much more light and airy in the room now.

With love from the bears


  1. Love the new look of the room and some lovely goodies there. The Chrimbo cards are going to look FAB :-)
    Hope you have a great day my lil' Bears.

  11. Well, Bears, those card images look great; but I am finding it hard to get into the Christmas spirit, I must say!!! Your room looks great! I am feeling so tired today, that - like Goldilocks - I feel very tempted to slip between those all too inviting covers and have a little snooze! Thanks for stopping by earlier and leaving a nice comment! I can imagine that Bears would like Clarice Cliff pottery! Julie Ann xx #42

  12. It does seem like there's more space, but where on earth have you stashed the stash?! Great card images, they're so much fun. Sorry to have been Missing In Action for so long... just getting round to catching up a bit.

    1. We just shoved THUTB out of the way and squeezed the stash under the bed! ;)

  13. I see him busy there making Christmas cards! Oh my how cute! I can't wrap my head aroudn 17 weeks until Christmas day, as I can't even focus on Hallween yet with this heat! Your room looks so cozy and inviting, just great! Enjoy the week guys! Winnie#84

  14. It's always fun to change things around in your room and give it a new look. Plus you find things in your stash you forgot you had! You have lots and lots of card making goodies sprawled about. You'll have a large stash of cards in no time.

  15. That C word is appearing rather too often for my liking at this stage of the year, but I like the look of those images. Moving that unit has really opened up the space. Thank you for your visit this week. xx Maggie #12

  20. Hello, I am sending this to everyone. Im sorry I am not going to be able to get to all the desk and I have now lost my sheet of paper that I was writing them down on. I don't think my cat is going to make it through the night to even see the vet. She is old just like my dog so I guess they are going to get sick at the same time or so. I just going to copy and paste and sorry to every one that I didn't get to read.. I just cant do it right now. Thank you Roberta 40 and bright blessings to all.

  21. Love your bedroom- very cool. Will look ace when you get your artwork up. Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #56 xx
