which is, as Mrs Dunnit tells us, actually LWOTYWOYWW.  Without further ado, here it is

My stash haul from Santa sitting there waiting to be organised (it'll have a flipping long wait then!)- who said that?!! Those of you who have been paying attention may notice a distinct lack of BIA. That's because the BIA has been put on the fantabulous contraption shelf alongside the cuttlebug, melt pot, encaustic tool doohickey wotsit and heat gun.
The three tags sticking out above the cuttlebug harlequin die are part of a pressie I made for youngest DD.  She had a christmas list as long as the arm of a very big orangutan (both arms, even) and included on said list were "clothes".  Older DD and I weren't sure what to buy so, inspired by a past issue of Craft Stamper (which reminds me, where is the lazy postie with this months issue?!!) I made a holder out of bits of kitchen roll inner tube (lots of uses for those this Christmas) and then decorated three tags as "vouchers" for a shopping trip for clothes, the company of myself and older DD on said trip, and a lunch while on the trip.  She used the vouchers yesterday and we had lunch at Zizzi's (I love their calamari and their risotto is to die for).  She actually only picked out one item of clothing (a jacket) and ended up with two pairs of boots, two handbags and some perfume instead!
Anyway, here is a pic of the holder for the vouchers for those of you who need to know about such things!

Can't promise I will be posting much of interest next WOYWW, if anything at all, as will be back at work :( but I will do my best though the post might be late evening.
