Good Morning Everyone,
Wow, it three years of WOYWWing for Julia at the Stamping Ground - can you believe it? Now, that's something worth celebrating.
I remember Ilurking for a considerable time before deciding to join in the fun which is this weekly snoopathon :) However, I finally plucked up the courage to join in on Week 71, 13 October 2010, and according to my calculations I've participated in 81 WOYWWs!
Over those many weeks I've 'met'a fantastic number of wonderful and inspirational crafters, made a lot of cyber friends, learned an incredible amount, not only about crafting in the UK but also, because of the International nature of the participation, what it is like for crafters around the world.
And the variety of crafting folk's are involved in ... not just the scrapping and cardmaking that was my thing, but mixed media art, recycling and upcycling, knitting, needlework, painting, book altering, etc., etc. It's been a revelation!
And all because of Julia's decision three years ago to host a weekly reveal of workdesks - thank you Julia and happy third anniversary :)
So what's on my workdesk this morning is mostly ATC related ... well, there are some blanks, my ATC stamps, an ink pad, all of which came out while I was working on the ATC to pass on as part of the celebration. The shabby chic flag cards are just there because I like them, but the heart is a template from an earlier project that hasn't found a home yet, and, of course, there's my much treasured WOYWW badge. That's all there is to show today. I debated with myself as to whether to show the completed ATC and decided that it would spoil the surprise for the recipient, which is why it is out of shot.
Right, I'm off to add my name to Julia's list and join in this week's celebrations by visiting as many of you as I can today ... I'm aiming for 100% this week, do you think I'll succeed?
Enjoy your day everyone, especially Julia, who is probably sitting on a poolside lounger sipping something cool, basking in the knowledge that WOYWW goes on, even when she's got her feet up and enjoying a well earned rest :))
Edited Note: Just to clear something up ... the shabby chic cards are Cardmaker's Delight toppers and not ATCs - sorry for the confusion :)
