WOYWW 208 4th Anniversary Special - And a Reveal!

Hello Hello Hello

Welcome to my Lickle Blog
Come in Sit Down Converse
It doesn't always look like this
Sometimes it's even worse!

Yeay today is the day of the Fourth Anniversary of WOYWW!  You know WOYWW where a bunch of 150 or so peeps from around the world take a picture of their desk and pop it on their blog so that other WOYWW members can have a legal snoop peek into their craft spaces.

So without further ado, here is my desk as it stood last night.....

This is the aftermath of my Anniversary ATCs for the swap (nowt for you to see as I cleared them all out of the way!) and the start of another project which I will reveal soon hopefully.  Not finished yet so you have to be patient.

The Wedding photo is there as I am planning a layout for it.  The card to the right is one from my friend Mo - isn't it gorgeous!  The cream things to the left of the calender are cup cake holders from the Wedding.  Want to try to use them as masks! At the front of the desk to the right are the covers for my latest project.  White pot to the left is a pot of gold embossing powder waiting to go home after embossing the dividers for the project.

Now then.  Some of you will remember that on previous WOYWW posts recently I have been working on a Wedding Garter for my Nephew's Bride to wear at their forthcoming Wedding. As the Wedding took place a few weeks ago I am now allowed to share it with you.....

Right.  You know what to do now.  Click HERE to be whisked away to the Hostess Julia's blog where you will be able to catch up with all the other Blog Hoppers.  

Happy Anniversary Julia and thank you so much for creating this Wednesday phenomomonon!  If it wasn't for you I would not have dipped my toe into this blogging malarky!!  

Hugs and thanks for visiting.

It’s amazing that the internet can bring together so many likeminded people and I’m grateful that WOYWW has also brought along so many new friends, thanks to Julia.

A nice busy desk this week Hettie but it’s still nice a tidy too… do you manage it? The garter is really pretty, it turned out well.

Enjoy your Wednesday snooping on this very special Day
Happy Crafting!

Lots of interesting things on your desk.
The card is fab. The photo is waiting to be scrapped.

What a great space and a lovely garter! Happy 4th Woyww Birthday and thanks for sharing. I'm very late to the party today!! Liz@161

scrappymo! said...

Oh my goodness...that garter turned out fabulous! Bet she was really honoured that you made her something so special.

Thanks for dropping by the plant sale update...we were really pleased. But I learned that next time I will stick to selling the half gallons or gallon pots. We basically sold all the half and full gallons and yet only just over half of the 6 inchers.

The number cruncher/tally guy quickly figured that out and wants to dig a trench at the top of the garden and tuck the babies in a row so they grow bigger and sell them on the following year when they are half gallon sized! Yep, I'd say he liked the dosh from the day to plow back into the garden! If we do it again we will use it for a water feature!

Queen Lightwell said...

Ooh, I love your craft mat! All those measurements look super handy. And your desk looks like it gets plenty of your creative attention, too! Always good to see a desk so well loved and well used. :) Thanks for leaving me a comment and your email and I hope you enjoy the rest of this special WOYWW! :) Deeyll #29

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

That garter is incredible. Very lovely. Your nephew's new bride is quite lucky.

Like your tidy work area, too.

Happy WOYWW4 from # 17.

Happy WOYWW 4 your desk looks kewl with those burlap and your garter is adorable hugs Nikki #145

scrappymo! said...

Just saw your comment on my blog...Yes would love a trade...
I was surprising you with an ATC anyway and mailed it this morning!

DH had to go into Langley for a mooch around Chapters...he was cleaning out his wallet and found a gift card the kids gave him at Christmas! Got him to take me to the worlds crabbiest post office where the lady nearly had a fit that i was mailing such small items!! teeheeehee

She is always cranky so I just smiled and said but that's the size they are supposed to be! teeheee
Hopefully you have them in a few days.

My door is always open if you are serious about planning a trip. DH is very reserved (not like me) but is the most wonderful tour guide. He knows all the local places as he grew up in the city itself...I was a farm girl who lived in the countryside!

So keep right on planning! We can even take you up to the lake!

Kyla said...

Nice garter (I think that's the first time I have written that on a blog!).

Looking forward to catching up on Saturday
