WOYWW #237

Woo!  Hoo!  It's Wednesday!  The last gathering before Christmas!  Gathering?!?! if you don't know by now all the details are on the tab at the top of the page - WOYWW - if you want to join in contact our gracious hostess Julia.

Here is my desk today - actually today, not yesterday some time, but this morning .... early ... after it was light....

There are no Christmas things, a few birthday cards (cut up or whole), left over nets and half made snowmen ATCs among the 'stuff'.  
I am entering a swap for Hysterical Historical Snowmen, so Caesar is about to get a robe, Louis XIV has an embroidered waistcoat and wig and so far Rasputin has an egg!
More importantly for our UK desk viewers there is a jar of this - Moulding Paste .... didn't know what it was, there were three types on the shelf at Lidl so I bought the course hoping it was similar to Gesso, of which there is a big white tub of already.
It is like Gesso .... spread some over a bright green card and left to dry, I smacked it with a rainbow inkpad next day and .... different!  
Love it!  wish I had some before to use as snow!!!  
But I can wait till next year .... 
as if!  
Perfect excuse to make some more Christmas card backgrounds for next year's post!!!
