WOYWW 208...A very happy 4th Anniversary

Good morning and a very happy anniversary WOYWW to everyone and especially to Julia a big  congratulations  to you on your  4th anniversary.

If you dont know what this is go to the Stamping Ground to check it out. It's where like minded folk get to share what's on their desks,workspaces or crafty areas. Its very addicted and I've met some of the most fabulous caring funny and inspirational people since I came across the site last year. I'm definitely still a relative newbie but have always been made to feel most welcome... the best bit is I get to check out some awesome bloggers and there amazing creations. 

Not a lot of activity since last week I'm afraid with work and a busy weekend away I haven't had much time.There's an unfinished card and some new stamps and die set that I couldn't resist buying.
Most of my weekend was spent attending my daughters graduation art exhibition in Canterbury and bringing her and her belongings back from University...I cant believe 3 years has passed and she has now completed her course and ready to take on the world ...doesn't time fly. Off to work soon so will hopefully get around to visiting everyone later today and over the next few days. I hope you all have a wonderful week and thank you for popping in, I really appreciate you taking the time. I've also made my very first ATC for the event and look forward to passing it on, I had hoped to make a few but only managed one !
Finally Julia I hope we have many more WOYWW to come...and a big thank you for introducing me to such a fabulous crafty family...hugs and best wishes Andrea x 


  1. What a pretty desk though! Happy WOYWWversary, have a great day... Helen, 39

  2. What pretty colours you are working with today!! No wonder your daughter got an Art degree, she obviously inherited her talent from you :-)
    Happy 4th WOYWW!
    Hugs, LLJ 9 xx

  4. I do love your desk every always looks so neat and organised. I leave here with very good intentions and then it all goes horribly wrong!! Happy 4th WOYWW. Pam#33

  5. Such a pretty and neat and tidy workspace! Aaah, I recall fetching my son and his 3 years worth of stuff and transplanting him... amazing what they can accumulate in that span isn't it? LOL Happy 4th WOYWW Anniversary! Annette #2

  6. It’s amazing that the internet can bring together so many likeminded people and I’m grateful that WOYWW has also brought along so many new friends, thanks to Julia.

    Your space is looking good this week Andrea, I’m loving the colours you’re working with.

    Enjoy your Wednesday snooping on this very special Day
    Happy Crafting!

    Have a Happy WOYWW 4th Anniversary

  8. Your desk looks just lovely. Those colours are so beautiful - really restful. Dies etc look exciting though!!
    Have a great week - and well done for making your first ATC - good feeling, isn't it, when we learn something new and different?!

  9. great looking desk. Love the colors and papers for the project in the works. Happy WOYWW 4th Anniversary. Have a great week. Vickie #14

  10. Gosh Andrea, you make me blush..this WOYWW thing is pretty much self perpetuating, so it's all about everyone, which is why it's so friendly I guess. Cant for the life of me see the dies, am I meant to be able to? Panic at my poor eyesight!! You're making a realy sweet card. I love your pin holder for special pins!

  11. What a great space and I love those little drawers ... so handy! Happy 4th Woyww Birthday and thanks for sharing. I'm very late to the party today!!!! Liz@ 161

  12. Hi Andrea....I'm next in line for the ATC swap and will be honored to receive your ATC! My name and address are: Sara Jansen, PO Box 341 Palmer AK 99645 USA
    Our youngest has one more year to go at school; hard to believe isn't it? Time goes so fast. When she came home from school this year we wondered where to put all her "stuff". Best wishes to you and your daughter in this transition period!!

  13. Tidy as always Andrea, congratulations to your daughter - it sounds like you had a great weekend.

  14. Congrats go to your daughter. A great achievement. I love tidy desks, and yours made me smile.

    Happy WOYWW4 from # 17.

  15. Hi Andrea - always enjoy your desk.. and wonder if you really make your cards in such a neat tidy space.. mine is always total chaos as pull things out and reject them and then look for something else yours never shows such indecision.. aren't we funny perhaps you do quick tidy up set just for the camera.. I could but also not my thing :D
    Isn't it fab we ar all different..

    Well done on doing an atc! I had not made any either till last year when made my very first
    .. and even then think only managed three last year..
    This year have made seven there that is better!! all are different can't seem to bear doing things the same... again weird!

  17. Such pretty colours on your desk today. Time certainly flies! I feel like the time from toddler to teen has gone by in the blink of eye. Mine aren't quite ready for college/uni yet, but the day will soon come around. I hope your daughter has every success in the world now that she has graduated x

  20. Always love to see your desk with your projects laid out so tidily!

    Well done to your daughter for finishing up with Uni...a whole new world of opportunity will await her. My niece graduated from an Art University in Savannah. Ga. She was just accepted into a local university here with a fast track program to become a high school art teacher!

    Happy belated WOYWW4

  21. You have another sweet card showing on your equally schweeet craft desk space, Andrea! I'm excited that you made your first ATC and that your daughter has finished her education! I wish her all the best in her future endeavors!! They grow up way too fast (frowny face)!

    Thanks for visiting me at the Playhouse earlier! Have a wonderful - not too busy - week ahead. xxoo Darnell #34

  22. Lovely calm colours around you desk - Happy 4th WOYWW Birthday... Mxx #137

  23. Congratulations to your daughter! Another exciting chapter is waiting to be started!

    Your desk looks as if it's patiently waiting for you.

    Thanks for visiting me already! I came back from Phoenix and had some appointments to am just now getting around. Better late than never!

    Happy WOYWW

  24. I love your desk! Its so bright and has such pretty colors all around, much like the card you're working on there. So pretty, can't wait to see it come together so I'll have to come back, huh? :) Thanks for stopping by my desk and leaving me a comment already. I know just what you mean about pinning...but there are just some amazing things out there that some seriously talented people have done, huh? I want to copy it all! lol But I'm happier when I come up with my own ideas, still the pins are great for when inspiration seems to be flat out M.I.A.! Enjoy WOYWW dear! ~ Deeyll #29


Thank you for commenting on my blog, I read and appreciate every one of them!
