Morning, still a Winter Wonderland here in N. E. Scotland and I still haven't moved very far from my desk. Saying that, off shortly to deliver an order down in the village and since I'm venturing that far I might as well go on into town.

I pass this Awesome icles on the way. A spring in the rocks frozen on and off throughout the Winter. Magical I say!

Whats on my desk? Making this drawer set for my Granddaughter Naomi. She just loves rakin through my Jewelery box so I decided to make her one for Christmas. The top is an Easel drawer card, thanks to Brenda at Floral Fantasies for the tutorial, made my drawer ever so slightly smaller, thought it was a bit stiff for little hands to pull out, used eight match boxes, glued in twos. Cut  three scalloped squares on Cricut with Storybook cartridge and one grundgeboard base to make it extra sturdy.

 Once glued will decorate with these papers and add LOTV images, might change my mind on this though, not sure if they are going to fit neatly on the panels

Haven't yet decided how I will decorate the card on top.  Hopefully get it finished in the next few days and post on my blog. Then it's off into Aberdeen to do a bit of Christmas shopping and find some little bits and pieces to put in the drawers and if I have time will maybe pop into Hobbycraft. Not that I need anything but I'm sure there will be something catches my eye!
Thanks for popping in by and if not through Julia's Stampin Ground, pop on over and join in the fun. Hopefully see you all next week.

Those are very famous last words: "I'll just pop into Hobbycraft..." Those are some lovely projects underway, and the icicles are just beautiful.
