WOYWWAC

It's Wednesday so that can only mean one thing around these parts in Blogland!

It's time for What's On Your Workdesk....

Lovely crafters from all over Blogland far & wide show what's happening in their little world on their workdesks...

Today is no ordinary WOYWW

It's week 52 & Julia
has thrown out a little challenge.... to create something
especially for the Anniversary week
incorporating the now well known letters WOYWW

Here is what I've made to celebrate!...

WOYWWAC - What's On Your Workdesk Anniversary Challenge banner!

I've made some tags & stamped them with a fab friends stamp from Crafty Individals.
I chose this stamp to remind me of all the lovely new Blog friends
I've made since I started playing along in January.

I have used Distress Inks for stamping & flowers & butterflies from my craft box.


a close up - complete with wonky doodling! - click to enlarge!

Now to show you where I have hung my banner..............


Many of my regular WOYWW callers will know where I normally craft!!
still ~blushes~


Well, last week I took over proud ownership of a pine Welsh dresser that's stood in my parents kitchen for the last 18 years.

This is how it looked last week!



and now!!

I hasten to add I have filled it Julia!!
but do feel rather guilty
that it's not with the decorative plates
that have stood on it for over a decade.. (sorry, Dad!)



Not sure it'll be stopping like this.....
you know what it's like when you're still settling everything in!


I could play spot the difference with you all next week!!

so here it is for now...
complete with my new WOYWW banner!

Thanks for calling. Wishing everyone a happy WOYWWAC

  29. Gorgeous yes yes yes -banner and dresser. In our dining room stands a dark oak coloured one full of plates and such rubbish-who needs 'em-we could eat off the table if it wasn't full of sewing stuff.Now would that dresser fit in my craft room? Weeeell---no. Lovely stuff thanks Gez. By the way my heart is still in Pendle too where we used to have our static van until last October. Very handy for Skipton and the Stamp Man Hugs BettyXXX
