Sorry Guys.  I am not showing you my desk this week.  No sirree - I am showing you the wonderful PiF which was sent to me by Kim.

If you are wondering what on earth I am on about click HERE and you will be transported by demolecularisation over to the wonderful DeskJockey Julia's desk two weeks ago where you will find out what this PiF thing is all about.

Well, I had been in touch with Kim on the day of the Anniversary and gave her my address, and I was also in touch with Sandy who was the receiver of my PiF so that I could have her address.  Every evening I would drive home wondering if my gift had arrived.  Until, last Wednesday I arrived home and there was a yellow squishy envelope with stamping all over it.  It had arrived!
I made a coffee, sat down (coffee cup well out of the way) and then very carefully opened the envelope.
I had absolutely no idea what to expect but I certainly did  not expect this wonderful little book full of ATCs.  These pictures do not do the book justice!!! This is the first ATC which is printed on glossy cardstock.  Stunning!
This is the inside of the book...... Two more ATCs hiding in there.....

Another beautiful ATC of Ophelia.  Beautiful!!!!

And then another ATC with Yellow Pear.  A Miniature Yellow Pear printed and then adhered to a gaceted charm.  Fabulous!!!

And now the reverse of the book.

Another beautiful ATC with Waves and Water.  Wonderful!!

I have now cleared my computer desk so that this little book and the card that came with it can stand in pride of place clear of any litter!!  Now I have set myself a hard task to keep the desk clear!!

Words cannot describe how chuffed I am at not only receiving this little book but about the fact that I now have two new friends - Kim and Sandy.  I have to say a hugh Thank You to Julia for organising this strange phenonomonon of WOYWW!!  I am soooo looking forward to the third anniversary now!!

Off to have a look around some more desks via Julia's blog.  Why not join me in having an official nosey at other crafters' desks?

I'm not surprised you were so delighted to receive this Sam it's absolutely stunning. What a lot of work. Haven't people been so generous with their pifs, it's been a great time making and receiving them.

Fickle! Never! I don't dodge about between different things - not much I don't. I always want to try something different. Thanks for the visit and the tip about the barrier handcream. Good idea, that.
