Hello there Peeps
I cannot believe that it is Wednesday already. This time last week I, as well as alot of you no doubt, were running around trying to get everything ready in time for Christmas and now it is all over and all the Christmas decorations are at half price at the Garden Centre!!
What does Wednesday mean? Well it means that a bunch of crazy crafters all show pictures of their craft desks on their blogs and link up with the wonderful Desk Jockey - Julia. And this Wednesday is the last one of 2011!! Yikes!
I am not showing you my desk this week! My head is hanging in shame because of the state of it, but all for a good cause. 1 , I was working until late Christmas Eve finishing pressies off and, 2, it is in bits as Hubby is working on installing a new set of drawers for me.
However, you may recall last week when I showed you my lovely Shrek hands which I had whilst attempting to decorate our Christmas Cake. Well, here is the finished cake which alot of you lovely peeps asked me to show you......
I am pretty chuffed with the results and there was not too much swearing heard whilst putting it together except when I got a bit of wire down inside my thumb nail. It still smarts a little today and I had to leave the cake for an hour as it bled like mad and I didn't want red icing!
My normal style of cake decorating is to roll out icing (ready made) and either put a large bow on the cake (think Christmas present) or I "plonk" Christmas Trees on it artistically. I have never tried to cut out shapes and then wire and shape a design. To say I was smug when I finished it is an understatement. I think I will try and look for a sugarcraft class in my area in the New Year!
Some Christmas pics of my home for you to see, as some people did ask.......
(That cheeky Santa left his washing behind too! That was because he went for a round on the Golf course with the Easter Bunny!!)
(Please excuse the firelighters stacked on the left hand side!)
I just want to wish you All a Happy, Healthy and Crafty New Year! Thanks for reading this and a huge Thank You to all my Followers - you make blogging all the more worth it. Bless you all!
Don't forget to drop by our lovely leader Julia's desk so you may see some of the other crafters' desks.
