WOYWW for 2012

Good morning all and a very Happy New Year to you!
So that was Christmas then - didn't it just fly by.

We had a quiet time - unlike Wipso, who didn't know where she would be from one day to the next - bless her. Of course Santa came and left me lots of lovely parcels. He seems to know me well and always leaves really useful crafty items!

On my desk are the fab boxes he left - just perfect to fill with beads and buttons, so I have done just that.
He also left a beautiful crafty book with some great ideas for things to make.
Thanks to all who organised Santa so brilliantly - you know who you are!!!

The bright pink knitting will be a little hoodie for twinnie L - its so warm and cosy - I think she will love it.

Here's hoping you all have a wonderful, crafty and creative 2012 - looking forward to seeing what you all get up to.

Now over to Julia's Stamping Ground to join in the blog hop.

Thanks for calling. x Jo

How fab that Santa knew exactly what you needed Jo, that storage box is perfect for all your buttons and beads.

Love the shade of Pink you’ve used for little Lexi’s hoody, she’s going to be so snug all wrapped up in that one.

Happy Crafting!
And a Happy New Year.

Lucky girl getting all those lovely boxes. What is it about storage that makes us smile? When I was I wanted to work in either a post office or a stationers - my idea of heaven.

Hi Jo,

Glad you had a good christmas & santa was kind. He was very 'kindle' to me ha ha!!!

Happy New Year :) I like the look of your new book. Do give us a run down on how you find it...... I inherited an old Riccar sewing machine it has much better foot control than my bargin Argos buy and it will allow me to try free sewing :)

Hi Jo,

I couldnt agree more - there is nothing better than to receive crafty gifts, they're just the best kind I reckon!

Love your gorgeous hoodie for baby L, what a lovely soft rich pink it is!

Have a super weekend,

Love that little hoodie pattern Jo, it's really sweet. I must say, Santa is bang on trend with that book, and how marvellous those organisers. Obviously, you were on the 'good' list!

Carmen said...

Santa sent me a big pile of books, some crafty, some zombie fiction and one even a crafty zombie book! Huzzah! He is a clever chappie isn't he? :D

Those boxes look fab! A really nice size!

Thanks for stopping by mine :)

Great boxes the Big Guy in Red left you. They are awesome for organizing and because of those nice latches on them, if you knock one asunder, then everything will stay put. I'm learning these things! It has only take years, but eventually you can teach a clumbsy person new tricks.

Ours went by in a blue blur too...we both had bad colds...hung out on the couch, watched too much tv and blew and hacked and sniffled and tossed kleenex on the coffee table....( I've since disinfected it) what a week. Don't want to repeat that any time soon.

I hardly got a chance to admire my beautiful tree.... well, I did...but, you know what I mean. Not nearly enough time... so it is still up...til tomorrow.... I hate to take it down. So pretty and sparkly...

Katie said...

Hooray for Santa's leaving craft supplies! Enjoy them!

Hi Jo!

Didn't manage to get round to you last week so I was determined to make it this week!

Fabby items on your desk - storage is also so useful, but also really personal, as everybody finds a different use for something or have a preference. Love the colour of the hoodie you're knitting, and that book looks really interesting.

Hope you've had a good week!
