My desk today is a bit of a mess & now that Christmas is well & truly over i'm trying to get back into my crafting again.
So let me tell you what's in the box with the blue lid . It a box of Christmas crafting item & on top is box of Christmas stamps.
Below the a bag of old crafting mags I've go ready to take to my crafting club on Thursday to see if any of the other ladies there want them.
On the right side of the box are some more stamps & just below them are the Christmas photo already printed out ready for scrapbooking.
Now you've seen what's on my desk today join me over at Julia's to see why we show our desk every Wednesday .  http://stamping-ground.blogspot.co.uk/


  1. You have a very neat pile of Christmas to put away, lol!! You are lucky to have a craft club to recycle your magazines through, I have loads that I should go through and turn out!! Something for another day maybe... Helen 9

  2. Great idea passing on your crafting mags at your craft club

  3. It's another day of juggling for me today....I have Lexi one side of me building with the Knex and Sam is the other side doing jigsaws so I'm popping round some of my favourite blogs while they play happily 😃
    How lovely to share your magazines with others.

  4. I wonder how many hands a crafting mag goes through before it finally hits the recycling?! Loads I hope, let's get as much use out of them as possible. Mine always go on to others to read, especially Simply Crochet which I'm bored with now!
    Have a great time at your craft club,
    Hugs, LLJ 18 xx

  5. You're lucky to have a local crafting club! I'm sure the ladies there will appreciate the magazines! Happy WOYWW ! zsuzsa @ InkyDinkyDoodle #27

  6. Looks like so many woyww's are having a bit of a clean up for 2015. Great idea taking them to your crafting club.

  7. Hi Jill and thanks for visiting my desk. I too have my Christmas stashes separate, but then last year I started making Christmas cards all year, so it just all stayed out to be used. Might have to recycle my mags too Cheers RobynO#31

  8. It looks like everyone is having a good clear out!! Good job! I have to do that with my entire house as we are moving in six months - eeks!!! Thanks for visiting me earlier!

    Happy Crafting!

  10. It is funny: everybody seems to clear off one way or the other. I am sure the ladies will be glad about your magazines.

  11. How fascinating Jill...my Christmas clear up will be entirely the other way round - a large (silly ) box of stamps and a teeny box of paper and some glitter!

  12. I never actually thought of stowing my Christmas stuff separately, but now I realize that might make life easier...even though I too plan to work on some Christmas cards all year, I would have less rummaging to do in my stamp drawers...

  13. I tried to designate one drawer for my Christmas stamps, dies, etc. and it has worked well for me so far. Some people put everything in bins but if I do that I forget about where I put it. Old age creeping up on me!

  14. I too have my Christmas craft stuff separate. It goes in several big boxes and my lovely hubby carts it to the garage until next year. I also keep my received cards, and buy stuff so the boxes never get any emptier.
    I'm sure some ladies would like your magazines. However old they may be there is always some inspiration to be had. I wish I had a craft club near me. It's so nice to craft with other ladies.
    Thank you for visiting and commenting on my page earlier,
    Have a good week,

  15. It's definitely time to put away the Christmas stash isn't it. Mine went away over Xmas and I've started on something new and fresh, lovely to have a change.
    Have a good week

  21. Hi Jill,

    I have most of my Christmas items sorted out and put away together. That will make it easier for next year. I might even stamp cards next year instead of using one of my photos - we'll see.

    I love to recycle my magazines too. I be the other crafty ladies enjoy getting a chance to look through yours.

    I'm having a giveaway so stop by if you are interested.
    Happy belated WOYWW
