What? 7 years? Huh! We have done well! Congrats to everybody on WOYWW!!!!!

My dear WOYWW friends! 

What a lovely anniversary! Thank you a million times to Julia who started this lovely thing - it initially started as just a desk surfing nosing around thing but turned into this amazing friendship and supportive gathering! Yes we still show our desks, yes we still nose around, look and admire each others work but we also listen to each others problems and support each other! Lets send a lot of positive energy to Julia our Queen who needs our support now! And lets say a big thank you to our stand in lovely host Jan! 
It seems appropriate  that my new craft room was finished just around the 7 year WOYWW festival! I have added new things since my last post - I keep on improving and tweeking trying to make the room as practical as possible...
So here is my desk......

I have been making ATCs to mark this occasion but I am not showing them as I did on the last post but it seems lots of other ladies kept them secret so I am doing that this time too! I will show you a card I made for my 82 year old auntie!

My new IKEA cupboard - it doesn't look big but it certainly takes a lot of stuff - all my cling and clear stamps have a new home in there.....

Buttons and washi tape in my jars.....

Here are my sprays, and all sorts of coloring mediums....

I will show more of the organisation of my stash in my next post - I don't want to keep you busy nosing too long as it is a special day and we need to visit each other on a massive scale!
My last photo is my little mate - it is a stray cat - she comes and goes but seems to have taken to our garden and as she had her meal I left out for her, I took a picture - she happily posed! Unfortunately you can't get close to her as she runs away......

Have a happy WOYWW 7 anniversary, keep on crafting, keep on posting when you can and thank you to everyone who visits my blog and comments - I try to get back to you but many times fail to do so...sorry I will try to get better! Many thanks again to our lovely Julia who started this madness - oh what fun it is!
Lots of love and hugs to all of you
P.S. If you want an ATC leave a comment on my blog and I will contact you to ask you where you want it sent! I have made many extra ones so there is a lot to go around!

  7. Your new craft room storage is fabulous! don't forget you have allthat lovely stash put away though (I fear i would; that's why I like mine all around me; although shelves would be good!! ) Happy WOYWW Helen #11

  8. Oh Dolores I LOVE your craft room! No matter how hard I try I can't get my storage quite right ... can still craft away though so all is not lost! Would LOVE to swap ATC's with you ... if you want to email me your address I will get one in the post to you - philarock@aol.com. Happy WOYWW'ing! Love to you, Debbie #18 xXx

  9. Now those plain empty shelves, I saw a few weeks ago, are buzzing with craftiness and look like they are your very own. Perfect!

  14. Hello Dolores, I'm sorry I haven’t managed to comment earlier, once again life got in the way! However, I have promised myself to get round all the desks this week to celebrate our 7 years of WOYWW friendship - so here I am. I so know what you mean by the eternal round of housework and gardening ... it is neverending and leaves so little time for crafting and blogging! I'm delighted to learn that you will be sending me an ATC. I will email you shortly with my postal address. Have a great weekend, Elizabeth x #66

  15. Hey, thanks for coming over to mine. Your new craft room looks incredible! I like your storage solutions. That kitty doesn't look stray - well fed and nice and clean. He probably gets two dinners, LOL! We used to feed out neighbour's cat and it was like she was ours, until they moved and took her with them. But now we have our own! I've emailed you my address! Have a good weekend! zsuzsa #42
