WOYWW 550 – festive crafting & fairy lights

It is probably the latest I have ever been joining in with What is On Your Workdesk Wednesday (hosted by Julia @ Stamping Ground). I took photos this morning and had every intention to get this typed well before lunch, but other stuff took priority and then we had a meeting with our accountant this afternoon. Finally, we have eaten a meal, cleaned up the kitchen etc and now I am grabbing some time at my pc table before collapsing on the sofa with a mince pie!

My photos show the results of 2 different craft workshops. If you are ever in Pembrokeshire, then I would definitely recommend coming along to a workshop at SET Craft in Haverfordwest (see their Facebook page for details of workshops). The fabulous lantern was a lot simpler to make than may first appear, as the tutor had already diecut all the necessary pieces for us. We had some folding/cutting/sticking to do make it all up. The slate heart was decorated with a napkin and some cold foiling.

I also show my craft room decorated with a spare set of fairy lights. If you want to see our Christmas tree and other decorations downstairs, then take a look at one of my Instagram accounts (I have three!), @iamaliwade.

I am hoping that I will be able to get this published (having issues with one of our wifi routers, which typically is what I use in my craft room). I am ok if I go downstairs to the living room and use my iPad, but it is just easier to type on a proper keyboard (ooh, thought of something else to go on my Christmas list – a keyboard for my iPad!). Had a look at MacBooks in Currys this afternoon and definitely something I would like one day (I miss my laptop).

As this is the last WOYWW before Christmas (I definitely won’t be anywhere near my pc next week! We have family staying with us – including two of the grandkids), I wish everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Keep safe and well.

  3. Hi Ali Sorry I am late visiting. I’m doing flying visits round desks, as I’ve been AWOL for so long and wanted to catch up and wish everyone a Merry Christmas! The lantern and slate heart both look lovely, I’m sure you had great fun with them. Have a lovely week Heather xx #31

  4. Very belatedly doing the rounds – what a beautiful lantern! So effective – especially the subtle sparkles here and there. Have a lovely Christmas!

  5. I like the lantern and slate heart very much! Keep me posted about the workshops, I’d like to come over and attend one some time – having run the WI Craft club for two years now, I really appreciate just being able to sit down and have stuff put in front of me!!
    I can recommend a Bluetooth keyboard for the iPad, in fact that’s what I’m using to type now. It’s so much easier!
    Have a wonderful Christmas with the family – Nadolig Llawen a Blwyddyn Newydd Dda.
