What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday: A blessed Christmas!

 

It's the last Wednesday before Christmas day  (can you believe how time flies!?) and so I'd like to greet all of you a blessed and joyful Christmas!  For What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday, my desk is relatively clean but of course I didn't show you the floor!

On my desk today, some goodies I received in the mail!  I joined Kimberly's Merry Christmas ATC Swap over at ArtJoyStuff  and here is the absolutely beautiful fabric ATC she sent me.  Even the envelope it came in with the vintage Santa embellishment is gorgeous!


I also received two lovely pendants from Kimberlie when she had a giveaway in her B.B. Bellezza blog.  I won a gift certificate and got to choose from Kimberlie's Etsy shop.  I chose upcycled domino and scrabble tile pendants.


Here's a better view of my pendants.  Aren't they lovely?

 

Some beaded charms from a craft fair called 10a Alabama...


A bag charm made out of leather that I bought from our shop, Papemelroti...


A bottle of newly bought Transfer Medium and a Christmas Thank You card from World Vision, a Christian relief, development and advocacy organisation dedicated to working with children, families and communities to overcome poverty and injustice.   Sponsoring a child helps fulfill the verse written on the card, "...and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed." Genesis 12:3.  World Vision also provides emergency aid, like for the recent big typhoon in southern Philippines.  If you want to donate, you can go here.


And, a painting I made some time go, inspired by early icons, a reminder during this oh so busy time, that Christmas is all about Jesus being born into the world because of God's great love for us (and on my computer screen is my post about my Advent Calendar made up of 25 ATCs.)


And, you still have time to leave a comment on my giveaway post  for a chance to win my original art!  

Merry Christmas, everyone!

Wow, that ATC is simple beautiful Peggy.
I’m nowhere near really for the big day . It’s turned 8pm on Christmas Eve and I still have pressie to wrap. Turkey’s in the oven though and smelling lovely so I think a nice glass of wine and I might be more in the mood, Lol!

Thanks for all friendship and comments throughout the year.
I hope you have a wonderful Christmas.
