WOYWW 521 The week after!

Hello WOYWW friends!

I am here again and very happy! Happy because I will be coming to the crop! YIPEEEEE! Alan is feeling better and I am feeling well - the same - but I don't want to miss this lovely opportunity to meet so many of you lovely ladies! We will be traveling to the area on Friday so there will be no pressure on the day to get to the crop! I just can't wait - and I hear there will be a lot of us coming to this crop! Better hurry with my ATCs....here is my desk of today!

 As you can see ATCs are in the making....
 To the right of my desk there is a lot new stamps and dies...
 And to the left  of my desk is my die cutting machine which I am thinking of replacing with a new electronic one but I haven't made my mind up yet....I had a Tim Holtz one a few years ago and that went terribly wrong so I am having a think...
Here are a few things I made since last Wednesday...
 A card for my 85 year old auntie...
 A card for my PIF Helen.....

and here is card with some edelweiss flowers - I love them and a company from Slovenia ( Najlepši par) has just brought them out!

Today's blog is done....have a lovely rest of the week and I hope to see a lot of you at the crop in Shrewsbury!
Love and hugs to all

WOYWW big 10 years!!!!

My dear WOYWW friends!

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!
