WOYWW 49: Cards Galore

Welcome to the 49th edition of What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday (my goodness, have I actually been writing about my desk for the past year?) Julia at Stamping Ground really must have some strange hold over us all!

Prince Charming and I have been under the weather all week, so we are moving at a snail’s pace towards Christmas preparations. Today, I began to sort through cards, looking for the ones I need to mail. Christmas cards in one pile. Trade and swap cards in another. Everything else – back in the box!

Legend was napping peacefully by the cards until he saw the camera, then he got up and moved out of range and refused to let me take his picture. I guess I still need to kiss up to him after dragging him to the vet yesterday (nothing is wrong – it was just time for his annual check-up!)

How are you coming along with your Christmas preparations? Please leave a comment (they bring me such joy!), and when you’re done exploring my blog, hop over to Julia’s to see what everyone else is up to this week!

Have a WOW of a Wednesday, and a fabulous week!

    HaHA! There is a strange hold over us all isn't there? Sorry that you've been under the weather. Legend sounds like a lot of humans I know! Hope you feel better soon. Nothin' wrong w/a snails pace.

    As to Christmas preparations… for me I think the phrase 'Could do better' comes to mind. But it will all happen anyway somehow or other.
    Wonderful array of cards!

    Fab cards on show. Poor Legend….nothing wrong but I bet the vet still invaded his privacy with the thermometer 🙂 Do give him a cuddle from me.

  12. Julia Dunnit says:

    Wow, a cornucopia of cards – really like them all, but for seasonality will single out the dark green card at back – lovely. Sorry you've been under the weather, what with that and the disdain of Legend, you've got some over-coming to do! Truly take heart, my preparations are not underway. Yet.

    Visiting from iFellowship… I'm almost all done with my shopping! I have a church ladies event tomorrow night – our annual Ornament Exchange – which I already have my gift for that… things are going smoothly so far!

    Probably because we are on a tight budget this year – so I had to start early!

    I enjoy your blog – it's adorable! Enjoy your Wednesday!

  19. Emily says:

    Love the desk today, seems to be a lot going on! I am done with preps, except for a party Thrusday & Saturday, then nothing till Christmas Eve. Makes a difference when all the wee ones are gone and you no longer go to work everyday, plus it is getting too hard to keep up what I used to do. #92
