WOYWW 260 - Celebrating 5 years of WOYWWing!

Hi Everyone,

Week 260 and time to celebrate! WOYWW is 5 years old!! Congratulations to Julia for hosting what has to be the biggest and best blog hop in cyberland. Thank you Julia for all those years of fun and frolics among the desks of so many lovely bloggers. It grieves me that I wasn't in from the start, I hovered and lurked for some time and then plucked up the courage to join in about 3 years ago ... and I'm so glad I did. I've made a whole heap of fabulous cyber friends and I've even met a few in the flesh. So a BIG THANKS to Julia for dreaming up the idea, keeping it going each week and making Wednesday a day to really look forward to.

Because of family commitments I didn't think I'd be able to either participate today or create an ATC, but I'm here and I have. I've created the one above digitally which means I can print it as out many times as needed so if you would like one please let me know :)

Now on to my desk this week.
It's a mess. I've not put stuff away since I got back from babysitting. I haven't even unpacked the tote ...
I took all this stuff and didn't find the time, or the energy, to do any crafting at all!
This shot of the right side of my desk is especially for Annie, that's Wipso at A Stitch In Time, ... can you see what The Boss has adopted as her snooze station :) I was tidying up, emptied and put everything that was in there away, and this is what happened when my back was turned. I haven't the heart to move her, she's had a traumatic morning. She has an ear infection so we've had a trip to the vet's and she's had two injections ... result: one very unhappy pussy :(

I've gone on long enough so I better skedaddle before I get into bother with Julia ... she likes it brief :) My plan now is to get around as many desks as I can before Pointless ... I'm addicted!

In the meantime, I wish you all a fabulous WOYWW and a wonderful week.

Happy Crafting

I like it! That digi ATC is really bright and bold...perfect for Julia, dare I say??!
Poor old puss cat, she is definitely giving us the cold shoulder there, eh? But then again, so would i if I'd had those procedures!
Happy 5th WOYWW,
Hugs, LLJ 1 xxxx

Hope The Boss is soon feeling better, nasty ear infection - bad enough when you are a human being. Poor little puss. Bet she comes in for lots of love over the next few days.
Know what you mean about not having the energy to craft - my resolution today went out of the window.
Happy 5th WOYWW Anniversary.Hugs, Neet 11 xx

ROFL Elizabeth - I was so late remembering the anniversary especially due to the weekend's poorlyness and it being halfterm and all that I didn't notice the previous asterix until I'd posted then I ROFL as it seems to be you LOL. BJ#102

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

Poor, poor Bonnie. Bleubeard is rubbing his ear in sympathy. And I feel for you and your baby-sitting duties that zapped all your energy. A day in your craft room, or in the garden with the Boss when she's feeling better, will make all that go away. Happy, cat love filled 5th Anniversary from #22.

Sandra H said...

Oh shame about the Boss' ear infection, hope it sorts itself out quickly. Love your bright digi ATC (now why ahve I never thought of doing that)??? Happy 5th WOYWW Anniversary to you, hugs from Annette #3

Eliza said...

Oh Bonnie the poor puddy tat, give her a cuddle and a pat from us here in Australia, Yoda wishes her well and says "hey girl you say put on that comfortable spot and don't give it up even for treats" I do hope she improves soon. Don't worry about the stash that needs to be put away just cuddle the Boss.

Thanks for visiting already and leaving a comment.

Happy 5th WOYWW Anniversary
Hugs Eliza & Yoda #8

I'm laughing at our furry friends commandeering our houses. I had just finished constructing the patio set and kikki jumped on the sofa and went to sleep. I hadn't even put it outside at that point haha

Chrysalis said...

Hi Elizabeth - sorry to hear about the poorly pussy. It's funny how they always manage to muscle in when you're busy. Our Rosie is miaow-ing at me now, to stop typing and just sit and cuddle her - sigh! Have a lovely week, as you settle back at home. Chris # 15 x

Kelly said...

Love the wildlife images in the far left corner. Cute kitty. Must have been the week to have them visiting.
Creative Blessings!

Happy crafting, Angela x 40

Karen said...

Thanks for your lovely words on my blog. Dialysis is being taken one day at a time. It helps to craft, when I have the energy that is! Love your Christmas cards too, reminds me I must start making some, have a load to make again this year! Happy WOYWW! Karen 84 x

sandra de said...

Poor Kitty, hopefully pondering on the grid and resting in her new "bed" will help in recovery. Lovely stamps on your desk and I love how tidy your tote looked all packed up. Have a lovely week as you can see I am soooo late this week.
