A great big warm friendly hug from me today to celebrate
along with Julia our hostess and around 100 others the
5th Anniversary of the WOYWW desk sharing phenomenaThis is my first year to celebrate and exactly 11 months since I joined this wonderful group of talented, crafty, artistic, thoughtful, encouraging and inspirational people....thank you all who have visited my desk over the months and left wonderful comments...and Happy 5th Anniversary. And quoting Julia...
That's the spirit of WOYWW
- a presumption of Friendship.
My desk today is pretty much the norm....on the left the pile of 'in progress' cards and the green one in front is one I made for my friend Janice and who sent it back and so now is my turn to return it to her...she's living in the UK for two years. Next to them is my small pile of WOYWW ATCs for the swap today. Along the back are two of those Card in a Box creations...the experimental ones for me - quite easy and effective and love that they fold flat to post. Then in the middle back is my first WOYWW ATC swap (not saying who it's from so it's a surprise for others) but it is absolutely wonderful, matching envelope and all. Then there's my bird tree holding my new cards I received in the mail this week - left from Loly in USA (Card Chain challenge) and right from my dear Vikki (we send each other a card each month). My grandma pen and empty coffee mug and on my laptop the screen for making this months Tim Holtz May tag for 12 tags of 2014.....which is what the collection of bits is on my work pad...me trying to figure out a theme as I don't have most of the things Tim uses on his creations....I like to play along because it's way out of my comfort zone.
If you're still interested in what I've been doing today - pics follow... I've been making tomato sauce and bottled it this morning and then finished off sewing a sleeping bag for gorgeous Sophie - which I made from a baby wrap I picked up cheap and used her other one as a guide.
If you are a little bit intrigued by all of this desk and life sharing please pop over to Julias blog for more information and we would all love you to join in.
A fresh cuppa for me and then some desk hopping Cheers and have an absolutely fab week Hugs Robyn
