Is it really Wednesday again, where did the week go? It really seems to be true that as you get older time goes by faster than it used to. I'm sure the EU have altered our time, they have altered everything else, so now we only have 50 seconds in a minute, and 50 minutes in an hour, although there do seem to be still 24 hours in a day, the days are just so much shorter, and as I mature (like good wine) everything takes longer to get done. Ho hum!

For those kind people who regularly visit my space, you might recollect last week, that my worktop was almost sterile as I took the picture just before bedtime on Tuesday evening. Well it didn't take long for the situation to change, by 4 pm this was this was my desk! What a mess.
And this from the other end. Actually I was trying to sort stuff out and combine two boxes of Christmas stuff. and I did throw away pass on a lot of paper and embellishments that I knew I wold never use.
However I can assure that some good work did come out of it, these are just a few of the cards I finished.
 Sorry for the crummy picture, too dark for no flash, but mirror card reflects is so much.

Right, what I'm supposed to be showing you is my desk today. Err.... it  doesn't look very different, still covered in rubbish detritus, but different detritus, but at least there are a couple of almost finished cards and the makings of another.
Why is it that I can never work tidily.

Anyway, I'm off to gate crash other people's parties, oh no, I've been invited, and so have you. So come on, join the deskosphere at Julia's. and see what great offering are on display there.
Have fun

Lovely cards, Chris! Those peel-offs look very delicate and intricate. I tidy up my desk at least once a week, but seems to get messy again in no time. It always get to the point where I can't find anything underneath the rubble - that's when I know it's time for another clear up operation. Have lovely week! zsuzsa @ InkyDinkyDoodle #42

A messy desk is a creative desk and you've certainly been that, what lovely Christmas cards. I need to get a move on and start mine.

Hi Chris, great views of your very productive desk...whether it's sorting or've done well with all these cards and they look terrific. Cheers and enjoy your weekend - wish at least the weekends would slow down, I used to think life would slow down not speed up as you 'matured', oh well. RobynO#39

Hi Chris - couldn't agree more with your first para! The finished cards look great, and I defy anyone to keep their desk tidy when they're cooking up a storm like that (it's not natural!) I love your 'keep calm ...' sign on the window ledge! Have a lovely week, Chris # 7

Hi Chris, fabulous cards, very productive desk time! The hanging bag was made by our lovely LLJ, for sewers its handy for dropping ends of threads etc in. Mine normally hangs on my pc desk, and gets all the odd post it notes and such like dropped in it!Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #14 xxx

Hi there. I am SO late visiting this week.
Hey, just remember that God took chaos and made something of it - something pretty special.
Wasn't that funeral fantastic - what a tribute to such a special man. It was a privilege to have known him for all these years.
I love those cards you have made - they are just great - well done. See you soon.
Take care. God bless.
