WOYWW #230 My birthday continues...

Hey there!

Happy WOYWW to you - can't believe it's that time already..Time for what I hear you wonder? Well pop over to Julia's blog Stamping Ground for the weekly global desk nosy

My desk is a busy place this week :) You can see a stack of new Stamping Bella stamps (naughty, naughty), a cog paper I made - JT's suggestion, some hexagons, a die-cut thank you, an anniversary card that needs a greeting, parts of another card - both of these cards use the illustration that my work colleague Leia did and gave to me, my pencil, my mouse, a stack of die-cuts (in black), a pack of fabric mistables and a bottle of spray in - both are new and were on sale, so I am giving it a go.

The reason all this stuff is on my desk because I have a million things going on - making for a craft fair, making 40 for 40 and making for November birthday. anniversaries, etc.

Now back to the title of my post - yesterday I received 2 lovely things in the post for my birthday - one of them is from Marit - a WOYWW friend. Thank you so much Marit for the lovely piece of Altered Art, that has pride of place on my bookshelf. Here are a couple of photos (I had to doctor the front, so my address isn't on display)

I also got a lovely notebook from Paperchase, from a friend in the UK..I am loving this turning 40 thing, it just keeps on giving.
