... not much has changed since last week! So this is my messy painty desk - the one I usually post photos of:
Sketchbook on my still-very-clean craft sheet, ink pads, the glass balls on the right of the photo are a lamp I've brought in from the lounge to use with a daylight bulb (the light in my workroom is an old round(!!) flourescent) but this week no Lola on the desk...
and thats because she's here at the other desk! lol
This desk faces the other one (I stand/sit inbetween), and its quite tidy!

Festive accident update - the eye is not 95% back to normal, cheekbone swelling gone done but still painful and bruise on leg still going through some interesting colour changes... so its all good! lol   Not to be repeated I can assure you - I've had my share of accidents and incidents this year! Here's to an uneventful 2012! lol

Thats all folks - go and snoop elsewhere - :o)  go to Julia's (queen of WOYWW) blog to see what this is all about.

Just in case I don't see you again before 2012: thanks for stopping by in 2011 - it wouldn't be the same without you and I wish you all a

    Wow, Jo -- your desk is MUCH tidier than mine, and I've barely even started on Christmas cards yet!!!
    Hope your aches & pains clear up very soon. Roll on 2012, eh?
    Holiday greetings from me to you -- Sally x

  2. The one thing that really stood out to me is that tiny chair that Lola is sitting on, barely big enough for her! You must be tiny, I cannot imagine my over size tush on that chair for a long length of time!

  3. Such a tidy desk! I was thinking it was a small seat you have too (titters) Have a fabulous Christmas.

  4. Always love looking at your desk Jo - great stash. happy Christmas

  5. Your desk makes me jealous..... that's almost as much stuff as I have in my craft closet! Oh the downside of living in a small space.

    Merry Christmas to you and yours!

  10. I need to buy craft mat number 3 - the good one has lost it's sparkle already! Always loving your space and look forward to what you'll come up with next year! 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.

  12. Ah Jo, it's a hard lesson learned huh, all the bruising, and for what, a mili second of a completed job..ouch!! Your desk suggests the beginnings of something, whereas mine is defo showing and end game; as in....it's covered in crap and needs tidying!!
    Hope you have a lovely Christmas!

  13. glad to hear you are healing and I empathize cause I am so accident prone myself. I am happy to see the kitty is enjoying herself too. Mine is sitting beside the keyboard as I type and is a twin in coloring to yours. I always wanted a stripy kitty! Thanks for sharing. I am really late getting around to all the blogs this week but hey it happened before and it will probably happen again. Hope you and your family have a Happy Holiday and Merry Christmas this year!

  14. Hello Jo, just popping in late to say I've really enjoyed visiting your blog, and admiring your handiwork throughout the year. It's been fun getting to know you, virtually that is :) Here's hoping you continue to heal and are well enough to enjoy the festivities and I wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
