These days I am a rare sight at the WOYWW but it is not forgotten for me! Health issues both for me and my partner have taken me away from blogging but I will be back! I am of course back today because it is a very special day! 10 years of WOYWW. It is 10 years of messy desks, tidy desks, snooping on other peoples desks, learning new crafty tricks and making really, really special friendships with crafters from all over the world, UK, EU, USA, Australia and well everywhere! Julia our Queen of deskers - founder of STAMPING GROUND where we all meet - I am sure you never thought this would go so far and beyond! Well done my dear friend! And of course a big THANK YOU!!! This WOYWW has made me the crafty person I am today! And friends that I met through this lovely gathering have taught me a lot! I am forever grateful for this wonderful, wonderful thing called WOYWW.
I will participate in the ATC swap of course and maybe just maybe if health of my partner improves I might be able to join the celebratory party (crop) in Shrewsbury! But if it doesn't , my dear friends my thoughts will be there with you!
Of course there is this usual business of showing our desks - and here is mine in all its messy glory!
I have been frantically making cards - birthday cards, get well cards all sorts and to be honest I just don't have time to tidy up so enjoy the snooping - there is a few new products you can see! More washi tapes from Altenew - why am I still buying washi tapes if I have 2 boxes full of them??!? Can't give you an answer to that...here are a few examples of my latest cards....
That is all from me! HAPPY 10th BIRTHDAY WOYWW!! And love and hugs to all my lovely friends some I have met in person, some I just know from their blog ! You are all my people!
Ah now! Washi tapes. I hope you give me some idea as I have loads of them too and still haven't used them but they look useful Lol! I'm really late as I was forced to go out with friends today to drink coffee and eat scones.... I could hardly say no! but it has made me late getting round. Wishing you a lovely woyww and a happy creative week with hugs, Angela x19XReplyDelete

That is one very busy desk, dear. I thought the washi tape was beautiful and so different from what I've seen in the past.ReplyDelete
LOVE your cards, and love that you joined in the celebration, too. Happy 10th from # 4.

Happy 10th WOYWW birthday. I do hope things improve and you can make it to the crop, it would be lovely to see you again. Love the cards and you can never have too much washi tape lol. Sarah #3ReplyDelete
All your cards are beautiful and the dandelion die is fabulous - I love the way some of the 'stems' can be pulled forward to give it a 3D look.ReplyDelete
Happy 10th anniversary,

Hi Dolores, and I will be keeping my fingers crossed you are both well enough to get to the crop. If not, I would love to swap with you by post. Love all the cards you've made, they are beautiful. Fab desk pic! Have a lovely week, Hugs, Shaz #7 XReplyDelete

Hi Cardarian, I'd love to swap. If you don't mind you could send me your address using the Contact Form on my blog and then I will be able to get back to you with mine. Sending hugs, Angela xXxReplyDelete
I'm so sorry to hear that Alan and yourself have been poorly, hope things have improved for you both. It would be wonderful to see you in Shrewsbury but don't make yourself worse trying to get there, I'm sure there'll be another! I'm so glad we met through WOYWW 💖ReplyDelete

Lovely cards and a happy 10th WOYWW anniversary to you! Would be lovely to meet up at the crop but health comes first. Hope all is soon well. xx JoReplyDelete
Sorry for the late visit, we are having internet problems, keeps going off and on! Happy 10th WOYWW anniversary! Love all your cards, especially the second one. Nice sentiment. It would be great to meet you at the Crop. Hope your health and your partner's health permits. Have a lovely week Heather x #30ReplyDelete
The Woyww-list is quite long in this anniversary-week and I want to visit everyone on it, so I am still making my round... sorry I am late. I can totally understand the 'washi addiction'.. I stopped buying them but that wasn't easy to do (it's like trying to quit smoking, ha!) I love the cards! I hope your partner's health will improve and that you have more time to create and go to the crop(I won't be there, unfortunately.. it's too far and expensive to come over...) Have a nice day. Happy late-woyww-anniversary, hug from Holland. Marit #16ReplyDelete
Hi Dolores - Sorry to be so late commenting, blogger wasn't playing for me!! Happy 10th anniversary! Do so hope you will make it to the crop. It was such fun meeting you in my home two years ago! It would be lovely to meet up again. The cards you have made are lovely - well done.ReplyDelete
Take care of yourselves. God bless.
Oh my lovely friend, you credit me with far too much. It’s lovely to see you here, but I hate to read that you’re both struggling with poor health. Oh gosh it would be wonderful to see you next weekend but do not put any stress or ridiculous effort into it, it it’s too much, it’s not meant to be and we’ll work something else out. Love to you both. XxxxReplyDelete
