Where has the week gone?

I really do not know where all my time has gone this week - I've had meetings (boring), I went to a Stampin' Up party (fab) and I helped out at the local Mother and Toddler group (exhausting) and last night I had my monthly craft workshop. I set my ladies a challenge to make Christmas cards and matching gift tags and the results are astounding. The time and effort that they have put into their projects is amazing - I'm so proud of them. Trouble is I now have to choose a winner - that is going to be sooooooo difficult!
Anyway this is what we made last night

These little 4" x 4" boxes boxes open up easel - card style to reveal little calendars on top of a small drawer suitable for storing post - it notes, stamps paper clips etc.

These projects use my new favourite stamp set - Just Believe, Greenhouse Garden and my new favourite colour Baja Breeze - doesn't it look absolutely gorgeous with the dusky brown?
Well my time is going to even busier this weekend as I have a table at a local art exhibition so I am now frantically making last minute cards - I'm setting up at 9.30am tomorrow morning! And no it's not bad organisation on my part - I was only asked to do it yesterday! There is light at the end of this tunnel however - next weekend I get to be with my Mum and have a really girly, self indulgent time!!! Roll on next Friday.
Bye for now - Jacqueline xx.
