Morning - here it is hump day Wednesday . . . again!

Morning all,

It's beginning to feel like Christmas is over now, with the snow all melted and so much warmer - we woke up to FOG this morning and the weather forecasters tell us it's the warmest day since November 20th - feels like it too!

Sales are in full flow, not that I've physically visited the sales - I've been doing mine "virtually" and bought some nice leather goods at 50% off from John Lewis and even tried the Sizzix sale this morning - up to 75% off their dies and embossing folders, including Tim Holtz - check it out here. I bought a couple of dies and some embossing folders and even with the incredible £6.94 P&P still managed to save £21 on my £36 purchase! (I know, I'm such a sale lightweight!!!). I shall be happy if its all in stock to send to me.

It's WOYWDW again over on Craft Mad & Loving It and I appear to have been first on-line to post my piccie. My work desk looks like a war zone and is in need of a serious TIDY before crafting can commence BUT (in my defence) most of the goodies strewn on my desk are actually lovely Christmas gifties I have yet to find a home for - so no complaints from me on that front.

How lucky was I with my crafting Christmas presents?

Have a great Wednesday whatever you plan to do - catch you later, once everything's put away and I've managed some crafting! (wish me luck on that score!)

Hi Kathy...
I have only bought 2 sale items and they were both 'pineapple' dancewear items in the sale at Debenhams...a long grey hoody jacket and plumish sweat top. Must get on line and do a bit more..but just don't feel inclined this year..maybe cos I am earning my own money!!!!
I love the look of your craft pressies...
I persuaded hubby that I really needed the Woodland Folk collection of cute and cuddly! Off to check out sizzix now via your link..Thanks for that!

Well done on the pressies, lots of goodies there. I have got the decs down now, starting to get on my nerves forever hovering pine needles up. Good luck with your sale goodies, hope they are all in stock for you chic.

Does your desk still look like this now Kathy? Or have you cleared a space and been crafting away this afternoon? Dad has been doing a little online retail therapy, he was so envious of my Kindle that he decided to treat himself to one! He's a tinker isn't he LOL

Evening Kathy. I, too, hit the Sizzix Sale today. Just a few bits but its always satisfying to see the amount you saved racking up alongside the total. Apart from that, I've not bothered at all with the sales.

Forgot to say your desk looks great to me. How I would like to wade through that little lot. Lx
