What's On My Workdesk Wednesday

Morning folks...it's Wednesday the 21st of December...only 4 days left before the big day and surprise surprise the christmas timetable seems to be on schedule which means I'm here to join in the fun with Julia and her buddies over at WOYWW.  So what's on my workdesk today...well I'm flitting between the kitchen and the cubbyhole...the Christmas Cake is iced and once it's set will be getting a festive look with some yummy Christmas Ribbon and if I remember the safe place I put them in after demolishing last year's cake...some ever so cute snowmen.
Lots on today's agenda....starting off with our morning trot around the block followed by a visit to the dentist before I dash home to entertain my lovely buddies Debbi and Charlotte - soup/sandwich and a good old blether is on the lunch menu today.
Then I'll be cranking up the oven to cook the ham and roast beef ready for the Christmas Feast and while it works it's magic I might just skive off to the cubbyhole to play with the new arrivals...my Kraft With Colour DT Project Kit from Craftwork Cards which is absolutely gorgeous...

choc-a-bloc as always with lots of delicious goodies...love the printed Kraft and Fusion Papers...those fabulous die cut flowers...yummy candy...messages in colours to match along with 25 cards and envelopes and an ideas sheet from the lovely and mega talented Julie Hickey...
and a special surprise...each Project Kit comes with a free copy of the Christmas Edition of Cards Magazine..so be quick if you want to get your crafty mitts on this great kit while stocks last.
Or maybe I will have a little play along with the wonderful Mr Holtz...have you seen his gorgeous version of rosette trees...click on the picture to pop over and join Tim for a free tutorial on how to make these little cuties...
  I'm off to get die-cutting and make some for my Christmas table...
Merry Christmas to all my fellow WOYWWer's...it's been great fun popping in for a sneaky peek of your crafty spaces in 2011...some neat...some messy and some downright...well unfit for publication...you know who you are.
Hugs Kath xxx

Yummy looking cake there Kath - I do admire multi-talented people. I'm more likely to spend my time eating cakes rather than making them.
Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy New Year.

Tims trees are great!!! Happy woyww and happy Christmas, enjoy the cake! Trace x

Paula (PEP) said...

Now the question is did Buddy get a lick in or not before that icing went on? Won't answer that one will we Buddy? Those trees look brilliant & I was sorely tempted but no...... the tree still needs to come out of hibernation from the attic where it's been scaring off the mice. All the best in finding the snowmen.

butlersabroad said...

Ohh look at that yummy cake! I still haven't marzipaned mine yet! Hope Buddy got to lick out the icing bowl, that boy needs a bit of sugar to wake him up, lol!! Lovely goodies on the desk too and I hope you're having fun with Mr Holtz!! Just don't make Mr Buble jealous ok!! Have a brilliant Christmas kath, and thanks from the bottom of my heart for another fab year of fun and inspiration.

Mmmmm just give me your address and I'm a coming over (I could bring a Christmas Spice cake?)! Those little trees would make great place name settings. I've been busy making 2 kg of pastry for the freezer - I love my Kenwood thingy :) Merry Christmas to you and all yours, furry and non-furry :)

Julia Dunnit said...

Ooh Kath you really are nearly ready...bet Buddy loves it when you cook meat all day!! Love the look of that kit, what a great way to shake off the Christmas colours!
Wish you a really happy Christmas!

craftyfoxglove said...

Hi Kath, the cake looks good,even though I don't like fruit cake but I love the icing and marzipan.Can't wait to see the finished cake.
I love Tim's trees, but I have a heck of a job getting these rosettes to sit still whenever I make one!
Have fun playing with your new kit.
Val

Kat said...

Hope you had a lovely day Kath. Think I'll ice my cake tomorrow and make meringue nests to take to Catriona's on Boxing Day. I've got my mince pies, shortbread and 2 kinds of tablet all ready. I've even made gluten free tablet for Mhairi. Just realised I need to make gluten free sponge cos she wants Tiramisu for pudding on Sunday. Thought I had everything I needed till she came up with some ideas for me, trust her!!

Might get time to try Tim's rosette tree after Christmas lol.

Everything is all so yummy from begin to end here! Mum makes me a cake and we make it last until April. People who eat don't eat fruit cakes are from a different planet. Yours looks divine. Thanks for sharing in such a busy week! Hope you have a very festive and wonderfully merry time - see you in 2012! Sarah at 11.
