Wednesday is here again and once more we are meeting under the auspices of head mistress Julia.
My desk today is slightly tidier than its was last week, I had to make room for making a card for DB whose birthday is Friday.
There on the left is the Mr Fixit card for my human doing of a hubby. On Sunday my daughter said her son wanted a dolls house for Christmas so by Tuesday morning he was buying paint for a fully handmade 1/6th size teddy house. Also the is a half made Christmas card and some bits of paper I found in my stash while I was looking for something else.
At the other of my worktop are some things that I am preparing for our interactive Advent Calendar at the Cathedral on Friday evening. 24 activities, with a Christian theme, for the children to do. Here you see baubles and camels and angels for them to colour and assemble.
And in advance at least 100 of each needs to be cut out, and the baubles taking 3 pieces each. Very sore hands.
Well that's all for now.

The card with the beige lace is just stunning.

Thank you, it is actually gold and yellow but it looks really nice on the black card, doesn't it. I have pushed it around for weeks trying to decide what to do with it.

The cards are gorgeous but I bet your hands are as sore as my bottom :) The kids will love colouring so it will be worthwhile.
Have a great week,

You offering a massage? Think it might have to wait until the new year.

Wow what beautiful ribbon...I would leave it laying around just to admire it. Do take care of your hands, fussy cutting is tedious. A wonderful masculine human-doing card for hubby. Be well Carole #67

Hmm - that reminds me - must make a card for the human doing for Friday - sorry we can't lunch together, just have a coffee - but it does look like you are going to have GREAT fun at the cathedral!!! Love the gold ribbon - stroke it, purr over it, and generally enjoy it!
Thanks for the visit - yes, couldn't sleep, so got up and posted and linked - went back to bed, then of course, was late for getting the shopping to make the soup for Step Inside! Oh boy!!!
See you Friday around 11.

I love the interactive calendar must be a lot of hardwork to do though. Thanks for sharing. Happy WOYWW. Caro x (#60)
