Good morning WOYWWers and a very happy Wednesday to everyone for week 366 .I didn't quite make it last week but I think that will be the way. I wrote this last night in two stages(was falling asleep so only did half before accidentally posting after first paragraph  not ideal !  ...had to retrieve now finishing off as I woke up at 2;30 am  arghhhh insomniac land once again .I will hopefully link up before I go to work in this morning. Work has been a bit hectic to say the least and I am having to work  more shifts again, so time and energy have been lacking, not helped by early morning waking, but I am not going to grumble as otherwise I would be finishing this after work tomorrow ...and that would be a  wee bit too late.

Thank you to Shazsilverwolf for her fabulous ATC which I received so promptly(unlike mine!) and I hope you have now received the one |I sent. So I'm not sure wether to post the ATC's today or not...mmmmm.

Thank you LLJ for keeping us posted on Julia and it's great news that the operation went well and she is now safely at home recuperating...  my thought and prayer are with her.  Thanks for also holding the WOYWW fort, its in very good hands. 

I wanted to say a big thank you  to Pauline and Darnell for always being there and their kind words and interesting entertaining and thoughtful posts

Pauline isn't a WOYWW participator but she is a kind and genuine person,  I made a connection with right at the beginning of my blogging, we started at a very similar time. Pauline has continued to be a fabulous card maker and crafter and is now featured in several magazines and design teams.She produces stunning work, always with great attention to detail. Despite her obviously busy schedule Pauline still takes the time to pop in and say hi and leave a comment whenever I write a post. 

Darnell  I think I met  through WOYWW .What can I  say she is one in a million. I do love her wonderful and witty posts and her thoughtfulness for others is outstanding,she always wants to involve everyone for no other reason other than wanting you to feel good. She is honest,genuine and to the point and has a very interesting use of word ..unique some would say, which you will understand should you know her already ...a very special person indeed. I  have linked them both up should you want to go visit and  say hi. 

ATCS wallets

So for today's photo I've decided on the ATC wallets I made for now with cards in... so you can can get a sneaky peak of what style of card making inside some folks should already have received theirs  by now..but who knows which one is theirs!

I am planning  to make a lot more for next year as I really enjoyed them.You can be as creative as you feel and its only a small piece of work, Dependant on your mood at the time you can create so many different styles,which I really like,Hopefully there will be more than four next year(there was actually 5 but the last one is a surprise for someone so can't say more than that!)  Have a great day and weekend  and if you do have the time pop in too say hello it is very much appreciated. Big crafty hugs Andrea XX

p.s sorry for rambling....  its just like old times tee heee

    Hugs, LLJ xxx

  5. Hi Andrea, yes your ATC arrived, and as you will see from my post, I was so enthralled by the fabulous pocket, I forgot to take the ATC out, lol. This WOYWW thing has enabled us all to make some wonderful friendships, both near and far.Have a great week, hugs, Shaz #9 xxx

  6. Wonderful ATCs. It's amazing the people you meet online. You sound like work is really busy. I remember those days. It's lovely not to have to worry about it for a while. I keep getting asked when I'm going back to work - I always tell them I don't have time.

    Have a great week

  9. Great ACTs. It's wonderful the amazing people you meet while visiting blogs!

  10. Thank you for you lovely words Andrea, you are very kind - I always enjoy my visits to your blog, it's a shame that you are so busy with work and don't manage to create and blog more often - one day perhaps!
    Your ATC wallets are pretty, I can't wait to see the ATCs when you can post them.

  11. Work has a habit of taking up so much of our time. I don't know how you manage to blog at all so well done. Have a great woyww and happy crafting, Angela x 26

  12. I was so delighted to see you posting again so quickly, Andrea, and then, what? There's my name! That was such a surprise and I so appreciate your kind words. I also appreciate that you, too, have been very supportive of me ever since we met in WOYWW years ago! Your ATCs are so very pretty - wait? Those are just the envies? Listen, ATCs may be small, but I think they are as much work as a card (remember I make VERY simple cards, lol) or more and to think you put just as much work into these pretty holders is very impressive! I hope you start sleeping better soon, my friend! Thanks again! Love and hugs, Darnell


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