WOYWW 104 - Happy Birthday - Sunday Stamper

Big Congratulations to Julia today for hosting the 102th week of WOYWW!!  Hurrah!!!!  Do you know that it is partly Julia’s fault I even started blogging?  No?  I came across WOYWW and thought it was soooo much fun I wanted to join in with the fun, as well as some of the Challenges that are around.  Hence – Julia’s fault I am here and it is sooo lovely to be here!!!

Since I have joined WOYWW I am able to travel all round the world via desks not only on a Wednesday but throughout the week, though this has been hampered by Blogger the last few weeks as I am finding that I am not always able to leave comments.  I am sorry if I have not left a message, though I may have been noseying on your desk!!

I still cannot get used to the fact that it is now June!!  Where is the year going?  And why is it still cold?  Well, it is in my office anyway!! 

Very very very important date coming up in this month!!!  Though that does mean another year older!!  I managed to persuade Hubby to buy me a set of Tim Holtz stamps the other night too for my birthday while I was on a certain website ordering bits!!!  Hee Hee Hee!!!

My desk is a little untidy (nowt new there then I hear you say!) but I stayed up a little late last night in order that I could finish my Sunday Stamper Challenge with the lovely Hels Sheridan!!  At least I won’t be finishing it on Saturday evening!!! Hurrah!!!  I had hoped to show you all a tidy desk!!!  No chance I fear!!!

If you have read an earlier posting you will remember that I was having a crop in my room last Saturday, it being a wet Bank Holiday weekend, with two of my buddies Mandy and Rachel. 

Rachel popped in for a few hours and completed a layout (very good for a newbie!!) but Mandy and I managed to do the full 24hrs!!! 

Still not sure how we made it but we did!! In that time I managed to alter a tin for last week’s Sunday Stampers, make a tag for the Grungy Monday (I told you I wanted to join in on some of the challenges!), finish two WIPs (a layout and a mini album), make two layouts from scratch and start my Sunday Challenge for this week!!!!  As well as that I managed to give Rachel a hand with her layout, eat pizza at 3am, and drink Baileys at 5am! It was “5 o’clock somewhere”!!! (I still cannot believe that Mandy had never heard of that song or the saying!!)

I am looking forward to the PIF thing too this week! 

My pressie is all ready for posting tomorrow to the person who is destined to have mine.  I hope you like it whoever you are.   

If you are not sure what I am on about WOYWW then click HERE and you will be whisked over via fairy dust to the (empty) desk of Julia, the Desk Jockey of this phenomononononon!! 
Well Congratulations to Julia once again, and here's is to the next 52 WOYWWs!!

No fun in a tidy desk, Sam, we like messy creativeness.
It's amazing what new friends you make through WOYWW isn't it and all over the world too which is fantastic. I love it.
June is a busy month for birthdays, I hope you have a great one, which I'm sure you will by the sound of those stamps!! Age is only a number, well that's what I keep telling myself.
Happy WOYWW 2nd Bithday.
hugs Lisax

You missed a bit - there is a definately a space that needs filling to the right of the cutting board!
Thanks for the e-mail, your messages always make me laugh! Frances

I’m making a really big effort to get around everyone seeing as it’s a special week. Mind you it’s taking forever and I have a bit of a numb bum now so It’ll be back to my random visits next week I think. I just don’t know how some people manage it every week.

What a fab desk, there’s so much going on.
I can’t believe that you were crafting for a full 24 hours… on earth did you manage that? I’d have been dropping off and would have needed to sleep for the next 48. Glad you had a good time though and managed to get so much done.

Happy WOYWW 2nd Anniversary and …………….
Happy Crafting!

Wishing you a happy 2nd WOYWW birthday!

Hi there, sorry am so late in popping over, thanks for leaving your lovely comments. I love seeing your crafty desk and fancy crafting for 24 hours know I could not do that! Happy 104 WOYWW and 2nd anniversary! Shaz in Oz.x

Carola Bartz said...

I love what's on your desk. It's very different from mine, and I feel my fingers itching. There is so much inspiration out there - thank you for yours.

Hands to Work, Hearts to God said...

Hi Hettie, what a fabulous project! So many lovely bits and pieces on it! Happy WOYWW Anniversary! You are so right! It's all julia's fault that we travel all over the world to peek into one another's desks! Patsy from

Hi, sorry I am late visiting but I was on holiday last week and only got back late yesterday - love your messy desk and your album cover is fab and I like the tag on the next post too. The pattern for my bag was got from the first stall that was on the left hand side as soon as you got into Malvern quilt show - it only cost me £2 but I was more attracted to the fact that you can use four fat quarters or two and some lining to make up the bags and I knew it would prompt me to use up some old material I have bought and just keep looking at but not using! The children love them too! Its also my birthday today (6th) whoo hoo am hoping for some crafty goodies and a trip to Stratford to mooch around the shops. Thanks for visiting my blog.

Your SS piece is just fab Hettie. I can shoulder the blame for your blogging but the credit is really yours...think what we'd be missing if you didn't WOYWW.
