Good morning to everybody!HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!!!!!🎉 Are you celebrating? Is the champagne out? 😃 Are your desks ready for show? And have you done the special forsaken/challenging project our lovely task master Julia gave us for the anniversary? 😊
Well I am very happy to have come back just in time to celebrate! And it was just health reasons and caring (for Alan) that kept me away!
My first post on WOYWW was actually in 2010 on the 17th february. It was from my "home" desk and I must say that my desk since then is a lot more messy! I have bought hundreds of crafty things since and many of them because I saw them on WOYWW. I have also learned a lot more since then and even now I learn something every time I snoop around the desks.
But lets talk about the community of WOYWW. Yes lets talk about all you lovely ladies that come along every week and not just to show off your desk but also to support when one needs it. Julia our Queen is such an amazing lady! To start this community and keep it going for all these years - that is an amazing achievement and I salute you my dear friend! Lets not forget all the wonderful crops that we have all been to at one time or another! Lots of chat, crafting and cake!!And all the amazing friendships, that stretch beyond the WOYWW. So dear Julia and all you lovely WOYWW ladies a big THANK YOU to all of you from me the CARDARIAN.
I could carry on talking about things for ages but I have to get on with the usual business of showing what is on my desk.
Not much crafting going on this morning - a few new bits - 2 die sets from Pink fresh studio and 2 new embossing folders! At the far end of the desk you can see my anniversary challenge project, which brings me to the the other desk , ha, ha the third one I have taken over in the house and this will probably give you a clue of what I have been doing....
So let me tell you about this project! A few years at the crop Annie or WIPSO brought her felting machine to the crop! She showed me how felting was done and I really liked it! So I went home and started thinking about buying myself this machine. It was quite expensive and well as you know if you can't start on something straight away the enthusiasm fizzles out...BUT every now and then I saw some needle felting project on the internet so I kept on thinking about it UNTIL 2 weeks ago I saw Annies - I think it is her niece Maxine at TILLY TEA DANCE do a video on how to do it! My enthusiasm was back so I went on the internet bought the foam, brush, needles, and tool and started on my first ever needle felting....and this is the result....
I am not an artist so don't judge it too harsh...I loved doing it and have already started on a new project. I am looking to find prefelt as I can't find it anywhere at the moment! So there that is my forsaken idea and challenge.
In other news I have made a card this week which took me a few hours to make as all the flowers were colored with coloring pencils! If you want a good blend it takes a long time!Huh!
And made a few more masks....
And thats all folks!
Have a lovely anniversary, I will try to come round to as much of you as possible!
Lots of love and hugs to all,
