WOYWW 7 Anniversary Post

Well I made it this year just,... I wasn't posting much last year and didn't take part WOYWW 6, but it's a delight to take part this year. I'm not giving anything away just yet as  I don't want to spoil the surprise for the recipient. I do want to send a very.very big thank you to LLJ for being the kind host this year's Anniversary and her huge support of Julia Julia I hope you are enjoying the sunshine and that you get an internet connection!

craft room 9:30 last night

So what do we have today ....not much actually I've been busy at work last week,I spent the weekend at my daughters( had a wonderful time )and late shift Monday,so really only had last night to do anything and as you can see it wasn't much !.but I did manage to finish the little holder for my ATC's,well two of them two to finish tonight after work. If you look very closely at the second photo below you will get a tiny peek of it on my desk, any other clues have been re moved ;-).

I did enjoy making my ATC's, I am planning to make some more as I enjoyed it so much, so will be ultra organised for next year!....I will post all four next week and their little covers before sending them.Well, time to get organised for work. Have a great day and even if you don't take part have fun visiting everyone and seeing over the next few weeks what others have been up to for the anniversary swap. That is the best bit for me. A very happy WOYWW 7 Anniversary to everyone and here is to yet another wonderful crafty year of sharing inspiration friendship and fun.

Whats on your Workdesk Wednesday 363

I know its been a while since I posted. Having visited Julias site again late last week it made me appreciate what I've got, there are so many people worse off  than ourselves and in difficulty wetehr thats health or other ,also thanks to Darnell  for yet again a  fabulous and thoughtful post to give me a kick start  .So here I am back for WOYWW 363 being hosted by Lunch LadyJan this week a great blog hop of happy like minded and crafty sorts sharing there desks around the world. I hope Julia that the surgery and recovery are a success and like so many others you are in our thoughts and prayers and wish you well.Enjoy your break away  in the sun and I hope you have a really lovely time away. I wasn't going to take part in the WOYWW anniversray 7 on the 25th May..., then I thought why not .make the effort and do something enjoyable, so here I am with my desk hiding my efforts for the big day...I really enjoyed my crafty time making them and not quite finished yet and so as not to give it away my efforts they are covered with the peice of blue card on my desk below.
Sneaky peak at work in progress for anniversarry WOYWW and small corner of hubbys desk in view

The  card I made was just for fun having done some colouring and wanting a bright cheerful card to match and encourage the sunshine our way.the cute little ladybird was part of a great christmas pressie of a crafty "gooody bag" from a relative last christmas.

I love the ladybird embellishment 

Its been so long since my last post that Ive moved rooms since then and now "share" with hubby who does his model making (currently a fighter plane  )you can just see a corner of his space and his desk light behind mine. I have 90%  to his 10% of the room but needs must!...  I had to fill the space and it wasn't an effort !...although hisdesk is much messier than mine and is not much in view as you can see from the first's directly facing mine.I'm lucky enough to have two deks that form an L shape and also I did not want to shock you by posting a full on photo of his space ....I will save that for another day..LOL. I'm scheduling this as early start at work in the morning,but I will link up if I can in time, if not it will be after I finish work , Photo's where taken early yetserday evening .

second view with even less of hubbys desk !

I will visit after work or later in the week so apoligies if I don't get to you quickly and don't get to everyone .Its good to be posting again and sometimes you just need a bit of motivating to get started agin so thanks Julia for giving me that push I  needed .happy WOYWW and thanks for taking the time to visit, it is very much appreciated.
