What's on my Workdesk Wednesday 233? Christmas stuff

Hello Fellow Desker!

Welcome to the beginnings of a Christmas village!  This is the prototype in cardstock and then I am going to build the rest in pretty paper.
I also have the die cuts from samples for my store lying in wait of inspiration as to what to do with them now that I have got them this far.  I did do a card with the wreath as seen below which is already in store...but the rest have to wait for me to find the time and the inclination...
So there we have my desk in all its chaotic glory!

See you at your desk if you have linked up with Julia on her new fancy pro designed blog!

Thanks for the visit



  1. Your card is so pretty with the wood grain bg and your wreathe looks fabby + great sentiment :)

  6. I LOVE the little houses...any model making is good in my opinion! My sons and I made a whole town from a pop out book a few Christmasses back. We had the best time doing it...happy memories :-)

  13. Building a village...How fun! I can't wait to see it finished. I love your wreath photo got lost with my post last week. I had it on the TH woodgrain texture. I love the way you did the bow. How did you highlight the leaves? I tried the gold rub stuff, but made a mess! So I ened up just using some red rhinestones to give a bit of brighness.

  14. Oh my goodness that purple building is fabulous...I can't wait to see the village and hear about making what kind of glue do you use...and what's a good paper that won't crack and break or have a white core. Great wood texture and lovely shine on the holly wreath. Your desk looks ready to play. Be well Carole #67

  15. I dunno about chaos, but I do agree about the glory! who wonderful wreath card! and I'm loving the little stocking swag too. Thing is, when you're in the mood to do Christmas, the other stuff really does have to wait...

  16. love the creativity on your desk this week. I wish I could get the feeling .... its just not happening at the moment.
    Your wreath is a good place to start though.
    Have a great week

  17. Hi Bella! I am seeing wood grain all over the place, and wood grain embossing folders, even wood grain seems to be really hot right now. I love your wreath on the wood grain paper...I am assuming it's the paper, not embossed and inked? I can hardly tell anymore, can you tell I am liking the woodgrain stuff?

    Hugs, Robin #76

  18. Looking forward to seeing your village! Those die cuts look great.

  19. A whole village ! Wow ! Can't wait to see !! Love the wreath card too ! We are thinking of booking our flights this weekend ! Then really will have to get the trip planned out !! So looking forward to seeing you again ! Hugs Ali x

  20. A world wide Christmas village! Sounds cool. Love the card. What a fantastic wood grain, a stamp? Love those die cuts on your desk. They'd make a pretty bouquet. Thanks for the earlier visit! WOYWW hugs! Nan G #22
