WOYWW 542: Less than a Week to Go

Sorry I didn't make a visit last week folks, I was wiped out by the extra long day last Wednesday (14 hours door to door) and never quite managed to catch up.  I also had samples that needed urgent posting (shows on Sunday 2-4pm).
My desk shows some items that I have just got out in order  to try out ideas for Christmas cards (there I said it).  I haven't really made any for myself yet to send this year and thought I might try out the new stamps that I got in the recent Clarity Christmas sale.  I am not sure which stencil I will use in the background yet.
Hubby had a last minute hospital appointment yesterday and the other side of the desk shows the empty cups from crafty visitors, who popped over after the appointment was done and dusted.  It made up a little for missing the JJAMMMA meet up in Stockport which I would otherwise have been to.
Why am I sharing my desk?  To join in with the weekly blog hop hosted by Julia over at The Stamping Ground, where desks from all over the world can be visited.
To finish, here are sneak peeks of the samples which kept me so occupied last week.  See you soon at a desk near you and happy WOYWW.  Only two more working days until half term!

I love the sneak peaks you share. Hope you find the right stencil for your Christmas card - I like what I see so far. Have a great week. (It's half term here this week so the bus has been blissfully empty on the way to work!) Helen # 1

Love your choice of what you are doing for your cards this year. Also the samples, especially the centre one which is a rich purple and blue in colour.
Hope hubby is ok from his hospital visit.
Take care
hugs, Neet 7 xx

The sneaks are looking good Sarah. Lincoln are having half term this week and Sheffield and Rotherham next week so we're trying to find somewhere to take mum out where children don't go as she can't stand the noise! but I know you will be looking forward to it because I know I always did, so you have a good time when it's your turn. Wishing you a very happy woyww, Angela x13x

Love the sneak peaks, but where can we see the whole samples? Watching Hochanda we only get to see a few of them, and it would be great to see the finished articles after the shows are over. In the past I have bought dies/masks etc, because I like the samples, and then when the goods are delivered, I can't remember what it was that appealed to me.
Hope you can get lots of time to yourself over half term

I didn’t make it last week, either, Sarah. It sounds as if you’ve had an extremely busy week. I hope your hubby is OK. I love the design for your Christmas cards - very stylish! Also the sneak peek of your samples. Hope this week is a little calmer for you!

Happy WOYWW

You certainly are kept under pressure from this DT work aren’t you! The upcoming samples look splendid again. I prescribe a half term break and maybe some complete down time with a book and a large cushion!

Hi Sarah, love the colors of the peeks and since I also like both stencils maybe do some with one and some more with the other? just a thought, I hardly ever get more than a few of any one design anyways. ~Stacy #23

Thank you for your return visit, Sarah. So glad you like the completed slippers! It was a fun project to do. Dark red is my favourite colour, so it's going to take a while to get used to the pale blue of Katie 2! So far I've only sat in her but haven't been driven in her yet - my hubby gets to have all the fun!
