What's on my Workdesk Wednesday

Morning folks and hey it's Wednesday already and time to play along at the most fun blog in town....a brilliant idea from the lovely Julia.....yes of course it's WOYWW...a chance for all us nosey parker crafters to pay a visit to everybody else's crafty space.....humble apologies to everyone for not having time last week to visit or leave you a comment and believe me I am having serious withdrawals so if it means burning the old midnight oil I promise I will try and pop by this week.
So what's on my workdesk today.....would you believe the sparkly Christmas Fairy has crash landed in the cubbyhole and with only more 45 days to the big day.....I think she may be waving her glittery wand and adding a little Christmas Magic to all the cubbyhole creations from now on...yes folks fasten your seatbelts.....Christmas Crafting has arrived here.
I had great fun yesterday making this cute Stocking Box Candy Holder...don't ask where the template came from because Miss Memory is having a senior moment.   Will be entering this in this month's Hero Arts Contest.....Gift Tags and Handmade Gifts....why don't you pop over and play along and if you are chosen as one of the can choose $50 of Hero Arts goodies and be waiting for your yummy goodies to arrive....just like me....where are you Mr Fed-ex.

Background stamped with Hero Arts S5433 Large Canvas Stripes Design Block inked with Versamark and embossed with White Detail Embossing Powder
Tim Holtz Distress Ink Barn Door
White Felt stitched on for cuff...toe and heel and also for lining the box
Snowflakes.....Sizzix Die 656731
Red Dewdrops
Sentiment: Hero Arts CL343....Holiday Sayings
Big Button from Simply Create
Ribbon: American Crafts
all finished off with a liberal sparkly dusting of Glamour Dust

and what better to fill it with but these gorgeous Lindor chocs....a yummy gift from my lovely crafty buddy Gayle at the SECC.....started off filled to the brim but no prizes for guessing who was having a little tasty treat or two....OK....maybe it was three.

And the next project on my crafty desk today using some of the new cubbyhole stash

Time for our wrap up cosy morning's real brass monkey weather but as soon as I get back I will be looking out the  Distress Inks and Paint Dabbers...all the messy finger stuff and having a's such a hard life being a crafter but hey someone's got to do it.   Catch up with you all tomorrow.

The Christmas stocking is fab and I do especially love the contents of it, yummy!

I guess Buddy is going to have to get used to his glitter adorned coat for the next 45 days ;-)

It's bad enough that I am running nearly a week late, then I have been plagued with that pesky 503 error all night. Just wanted to drop in and let you know I was here this week. Love the felty goodness of the candy box stocking.
