WOYWW, Happy New Year!

My lovely WOYWW friends and all you other lovely followers!

My blog has been neglected this year quite a bit but it was mostly due to my problems trying to sort out my pension. It has finally happened now and from the 1st of January I am off work! I think almost 37 years of service has been enough! God when I started I never thought I would get here! I hope that in 2015 I will be able to do more crafty stuff and other things! So looking forward to my new life! 
For all you lovely people I wish in 2015 that you have a lot of health, love, happiness and peace. Who would think that in 2015 we would need to wish for peace! You would think the politicians and people would come to their sences after all these wars! 
So all that is left for me to do this year is show you my desk, pick my DBF from the airport and cook a meal! Ha! Not too bad after all the work I have done over the rest of the year! ;-)

My desk might look very untidy to you but believe me this is the tidiest it has been in months! And here is the card on my desk and I send it out to all of you lovely people....

Thank you to all my followers, all you people who comment on my blog even though I don't get back to you, thank you for not giving up on me, thank you to Julia from Stamping Ground who hosts our lovely gathering every week and gives us the opertunity to see what is new in the crafty world and organizes with Lunch Lady Jan the lovely WOYWW yearly meeting, I would also like to thank all the crafty ladies who make video tutorials on Youtube - I have learned so much from them! Having all this I think we are very lucky people and should know that we are very blessed!
Thank you for 2014 and I hope 2015 will be great for us all!
Love and lots of hugs to all of you,

My dear friends!

As I have been ill for the last two weeks I didn't go out and post my cards or do anything much for Christmas, but the last few days I have been feeling better so all the usual Christmas stuff has been done.
I wish you all a lovely and blessed Christmas and wonderful holidays! 
Here is a photo of me in front of a lovely nativity in Trieste

Here is my humble Christmas tree...

and my small nativity

And as last a few more little Christmas treats.....

Enjoy the holidays with family and friends!
Hugs and love to all!

WOYWW, cards, cards and more cards

Hello my dear friends!

I cannot believe that my last post was on the  13th October but there was a reason for that and I finally have good news! On the 31st of December after almost 37 years I will do my last day of work and start a new period of my life! I am sooooo happy! I have been trying to sort it out all this year and now it finally happened! So there that is why I have been away from my blog but now I am back in business so prepare to yawn looking at cards and more cards because to stay "normal" that was what I have been doing! I think I haven't done so many cards in all the years I have been making cards.Thank you so much for all your patience my dear friends.
So to start the normal WOYWW I will show you my really messy desk, sometimes I have as much space as an A2 card to do my stuff.....

It is really weird because I tidy up every day and then suddenly this happens.....
I have loads of Christmas cards to show you I won't show all of them on this post - I will save some for the next days - I hope it gives you some ideas if you need some inspiration....

 Deers seem to be in fashion this year so I have made a few cards with deers - above you can see one....
Here is another one...

Also houses seem to be quite trendy....

Then I have made a few cards with washi tape....

I saw something similar on the internet and I wouldn't really think of using washi tape for a candle ( I don't know why but candles always remind me of the 2 Ronnies sketch about "four candles - fork handles :-))
And here is another idea...A tag on a card - love that little penguin...

I know you have started yawning now so I will stop with this and carry on tomorrow - actually it will be Friday because tomorrow  I will be going to Trieste -  Italy for a bit of Christmas shopping! YIPEEE!!!
More news on Friday but until then lots of hugs to everybody and don't forget to surf over to the Stamping Ground where you can see more desks and nose for ideas and also meet up with our Queen Julia!
