The Next to the Last Wednesday of the Year

Can you believe it???  This is the last Wednesday before Christmas and the next to the last of the year!!!  Holy Cow!!  I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around that! So, this is the next to the last time this year (providing I can get my desk pic taken next week) you get to see my desk in whatever shape it's in Tuesday afternoon (I take my pic the day before so I can be better prepared).  And then I link up with Julia at the Stamping Ground for the weekly deskers look/see. This is week 498 so when we start 2019 we start with week 500.   WOW!!


Yep, my desk is clean!!  Took me 1/2 hour to get scraps of paper put in their proper color folder and the white is still on the desk under the red tag to the right.  I wiped the desk and the blue mat. I will be starting on my card samples for my Jan. Valentine Card class today (I hope). I need to head over to Pinterest and check out some ideas and a YouTube video that I saved, too. I think I made enough Christmas cards but today I will be sending out a bunch. Yesterday I got my last box in the mail and got 3 picked up!  I also ordered my hubby's gift on Amazon and it will be delivered either tomorrow or Friday.  Love that Prime postage! Anyway, though my desk is tidy the floor is a whole different story as I have a couple boxes of unloved stamps (about 200 or so) to photo and try to sell and a box of shipping packaging that wasn't needed.

I hope you head over to the Stamping Ground and check out the other links to desks!  And Merry Christmas!!!

Hi Carol, my desk also had a good clean this week. Yep, love Prime, Doug got it as part of a package given to students for a course he's taking at work, so it's double great as it was free! Have a lovely Christmas, with love from us both. Hugs, Shaz #5 X

Hiya! I think lots of crafters have had the idea of a Christmas desk tidy up - I know I have! But I'm looking forward to what I'm going to make in the New Year....isn't it fantastic that we'll start the year with WOYWW 500?? Pure chance but very satisfying nevertheless.
Have a wonderful Christmas!
Hugs LLJ 11 xxx

Wow, Carol, your desk is lovely and calm and ready for action! Great good luck with photo work and selling the stamps, it’s a big job. I’m hoping to start on class samples soon too...but I don’t know if this holiday will be quiet enough..lucky me!
Wish you a really happy Christmas!

What a fabulous clean desk, ready and waiting to start a new project. Yes it's a great thing that we can order online and get it delivered pronto, although I much prefer going and getting myself it really has helped me get organised for Christmas with a year of stops and starts.
Wishing you a very Happy Christmas & Happy WOYWW Tracey #6

Hi there, Carol, well done, you on tidying your desk, mine kinda gets done but then create again. Think it’s needs anew years clean down before this year is over!
Well done one being so organised. I’m starting on next year’s cards and some present cos I have some free time which is nice! It’s areoaxed Christmas this year here.
Happy belated WOYWW and happy Christmas when we remember the birth of our Lord Jesus.

Now that is a lovely tidy desk to start the New Year with, Carol! I wish I could say the same about mine... It’s not exactly messy but there is no activity on it at the moment and when that happens, it rapidly becomes a dumping ground again. I don’t know how - for some reason that happens with absolutely no effort on my part, compared with the hard work it takes to tidy it up! One of the great mysteries of the universe, I think.

I shan’t be joining in WOYWW next week as we are busy on Boxing Day but hope to see everyone again in the New Year!

Happy belated WOYWW,
