Wow, two weeks since my last WOYWW

Hello and Happy New Year to all on this eleventh day of Christmas! What with Christmas travel out of town for a week and all, I didn't have anything to report. The only crafting that I've done is online shopping for stash stuff. When that arrives I expect to hit the atelier with a full head of steam.

Briefly, the tags and origami gifts for the teens were a huge hit. How can I top that for next year? The nephew liked his tag so much that he put it in the family xmas tree. That made me feel special.

The husband, St. Donald, surprised me with a second xmas gift yesterday that I suspect will be on my work desk in the next few days.  Meet Ophelia! 
 Since he brought this one-year old female home from the shelter yesterday, she hasn't left our sides. She is super curious and extra affectionate. Can't wait to introduce her to the room of stash.

Well, it's time for you to hop over to Julia's Stamping Ground and see the desks of our dear blog friends. 

Hope you can make something fun even if it's only just a smile!  Hugs to all.

Ophelia is so lovely. She has a very huggable cousin in the Antipodes called Pumpkin. If you go to my blog and scroll down to the Gardener's Assistant, she's there.

She is soo, so beautiful. If anyhing like my male cat, she will jump on everything and knock things onto the floor...he does it just because he knows he is not allowed.

Glad your tags were a big hit. And talk about a hit. Ophelia is gorgeous. And I'm delighted your hubby rescued her from a certain death. You and Ophelia are both quite lucky to have found each other. Happy New Year and happy WOYWW on Friday from a rather late #16.
