Happy crazy busy What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday that’s real close to Christmas!

2014 12 17 woyww christmas cards (1)

As you can see from my desk, today finds me listening to Christmas music on Pandora and filling out Christmas cards.

Now, I know that many of you are card makers and you work very hard to hand create all of your Christmas cards, so please don’t shoot me… but mine are store bought.

I did, however, add some stamping as I thought the printed sentiment was rather lacking.

I love this sentiment! It’s the Stampendous Precious Gift Stamp, btw.

polymer cafe contents

In case you are wondering why there are THREE copies of the same issue of Polymer Cafe on my desk, well, one of them is my subscription issue and the other two are comp issues cuz I’ve got an article in there! 

Whoop, whooop!

Of course, one of the comp issues is going to my mom, who else? 😀

Anyhow, I’m nearly done with the hand-cramp-inducing part of signing the cards and now just need to seal & address them. So I’ll leave you all to your own preparations.

If you have a few minutes to take a break, be sure to check out the busyness on the desks of other creative folks from all around the world. We link up over at Julia’s every Wednesday to do just that.

Happy creating and Merry Christmas!

  1. Congratulations! why didn’t you show it to us? I did not make a single Christmas card, so we are in the same boat! Have a blessed season! patsy

  2. I’m so impressed that you still send genuine Christmas cards through the USPS! And congratulations on your article in Polymer Cafe!

    1. Ha! I hand deliver as many as I can, saves on stamps and all that.

      Thanks for the congrats, I’m tickled about it. 🙂

  3. I don’t make amazing things from polymer clay either, so how about we don’t shoot each other, lol! Congrats on being printed, can you show us the piece properly when the magazine comes out? Have a wonderful Christmas.

  4. Great idea to stamp in shop-bought cards! It makes them a little bit your own. I don’t make traditional cards either, so I’m glad to meet someone else who doesn’t! Congrats on being published! You must be so excited! Happy WOYWW! zsuzsa @ InkyDinkyDoodle #24

    1. I’d love to make them all. I did one year, but just don’t have the time now.

      Thanks for the visit and the congrats. I am excited! 🙂

  5. What a lovely sentiment, and good for you, buying rather than the pressures of making them all. Happy WOYWW, Chris # 8

  6. Congratulations on being published. You must be very pleased. Very deservedly as the fairy house is sooo cute!
    Btw, there’s nothing wrong with buying cards, and It’s a lovely personal touch to stamp the sentiment.
    Have a lovely week,

    1. Oh, I know there’s nothing wrong. I was just thinking of all the woywwers who were bemoaning not starting earlier on their cards and here I am smugly buying mine. 😉

  7. No need to apologize for buying cards. I do love the sentiment you added though. Congratulations on being published! I’ll have to look for the magazine – can I say I know the artist? tee hee. I just bought some sculpey clay but haven’t played around with it yet. Is that the same as polymer clay? (See how much of a learning curve I have!!)

    Happy WOYWW

    1. Hi Kay,

      Sculpey is one brand of polymer clay. It’s a lot of fun to play with and you can find LOADS of information out there.

      Happy creating!

  8. Wow, congrats on being a published author! As the other girls have said, please can you show us a close up of the article?
    As a non card maker, I don’t feel any guilt whatsoever in buying cards, though I did do mine through Vistaprint this year! Anything for an easy guilt free life in the run up to Christmas!!
    Sending Festive hugs,
    LLJ 20 xx
