WOYWW #301..Its been too long..


So here I am joining in with WOYWW after an extended absence.

I got too busy to really comment on wonderful WOYWW'ers blogs and that made me feel guilty and WOYWW is not about I removed myself for a while.

WOYWW is the most special time of the week, when we join Julia at her blog Stamping Ground and nose at desks :) It's a lot of fun and some very special blogland people have been befriended, thanks to WOYWW.

So what's going on, on my desk..there is a new family member - Winston the Aardvark - crocheted by my friend Hannah - amazing!! I love Aardvarks and bombarded her with requests for him. You can see some scraps of paper, my pencil, a glue roller and to the left, some new items - stamps and inkjet acetate..can you see the teeny bit of zebra print under the acetate? Those are my fave craft scissors.

Pretty quiet for my desk, but I crafted up a storm at the weekend and felt he needed a bit of a tidy!

Here's a fun card for you -

I made this for a work colleague that was leaving, she's a good friend and I wanted to make something fun for her.

She is such a superstar that the stamp totally summed her up, so I added stars all over the place to match the sentiment!

The felt stars - I die cut using the Big Shot..sadly I have only just learnt that I can cut felt using the Big Shot..I know, I know.

Best bit for me is the fact that my staples are blue (from Tiger in London) - its the small things..

Happy WOYWW everyone.

  6. It is the small things that make us the most happy, well it does for me. I love that car it is perfect. There are so many things you can cut with the big shot the sky is the limit, let your imagination wander. Welcome back you have been missed and I do understand I feel the same about participating.

  8. Ohhh, that aardvark (is that really the English name? It looks/sounds Dutch... 'aarde' = earth and 'varken' = pig...) is so cute!!! I love your star-card too, and yes - it's the small things like blue staples that makes you happy isn't it?! I know the feeling! Thanks for the visit earlier this week, it's good to see you back at woyww! Hug from HOlland, Marit #50

  9. Inspirational, thanks for sharing with us again. I try to visit a lot of other desks and eventually run out of time each week. Such a fun activity though. Looks like it's time for lunch here as Newton is pacing back and forthelk over the keyboard.

    Hope you get a chance to visit, Happy WOYWW
