The big day has arrived. Sending a very big happy 8th WOYWW anniversary greeting to Julia at The Stamping Ground. I've been an on and off visitor over 5 years and have had long periods of time when I haven't blogged. WOYWW has always been my first post when I get back in touch and gives me a goal to aim for each week, it's where I have met new friends, and many many inspirational and talented crafters. A massive thank you to Julia for making it all happen each week over the last  8 years..impressive. ..Congratulations

Unfortunately, I won't be able to visit today as I'm on holiday this week in a forest with no internet /phone connection ..arghhhhh....I still had to take part.... So my plan is to schedule the post and asking my daughter to do mister linky for me on the big day,...I couldn't miss it.It does mean I won't get to visit anyone until I'm back at the weekend unfortunately and will post ATCS after the bank holiday.I've attached some little peeks at what's on offer

back of ATC wallets -tease I know!

So this was my desk last weekend a hive of activity in preparation fo the big day. I've made 6 ATCs, a couple similar but all different .I've made little wallets for the ATC's and cards...I hadn't planned to make the cards, this was a last minute would have felt wrong not to ... so a very busy desk.

wallets side view- tee hee
 I have 4 left to swap if you're interested, let me know in the comments below and I will get in touch when I get back and get them posted.Have a great day and will get around as many as I can when I'm back ...I can't wait. A massive anniversary WOYWW hug to everyone. Andrea xxx 

sneaky peek card in the making 


  1. Your desk always looks so tidy Andrea, even when you are in the middle of creating - mine looks like a bomb has hit it, I always tidy up when I finish a card but when I am creating a have 'stuff' everywhere.
    I hope you are having a lovely holiday.

  10. Sounds like you are having a great time away.

    I love a neat desk, and yours is neat even when you are making art. I appreciate that. You really ARE teasing us, aren't you? I sure like what I see, though.

    Sorry I'm late in visiting, although you won't realize it till you get home. I had a commitment today, so had to be away from the computer. Happy 8th Anniversary from # 1.

  11. Hi Andrea. Lots of sneak peeps there on your desk - which is OH, SO tidy! Mine looks like the aftermath of some manic search! Trust you are having a great time away.
    Take care. God bless.

  14. I'm so glad you were able to schedule a post for the anniversary, Andrea! I wish I had been that prepared and joined in as Julia / WOYWW means so much to me, too, but I was away on holiday just like you! We had a great time and I hope you did, as well!! Hugs, Darnell

  15. You are a tease Andrea. Those side glimpses look great. You are so organised with your posts. Happy belated WOYWW Sarah #27

  18. I didn't have acces to a computer last couple of days either so I'm very, VERY late visiting desks and celebrating the 8th anniversary - even later than you were, ha!... anyway, here I am to say hello and to admire the little peek you give us of the side of your wallets... you tease ;) Thanks for visiting my blog earlier, it's so nice to be part of this lovely group of crafters. Hooray, hooray and on to another year of 'desking' and crafting! Hug from Holland, Marit #29
