WOYWW 259 - 5 minus 1

Hi, so here we are ... a week to go to the big 5 year anniversary hop, and 3 days before the crop - it's going to be such fun, hope to see you there... I have a surprise for you... have made some atc's.. finished. done. ready... hopefully enough for everyone at the crop and then 1 for my swap partner next week...
What? oh, it's What's on Your Workdesk? Wednesday... don't you know?

 It wouldn't be stampingbyh without happy mail to share... new stamps and another stencil... love this one, used it tonight ( because I cheat and write this on a Tuesday) in my journal - the one in the background here, but I hadn't done it when I took this photo!!
then I thought I'd take a wider angle view...my knee seems to be in the way in the left corner... bare knee cos it was warm when I took this!
then I thought I'd share a close up... ooh look is that a sneak of the atc's?!! You'll have to wait till after next week to see them (Must remember to take some pictures of them before I swap them...)
You can see I'm also making a list of things to take to the crop too.

Ok, I'll let you get on to more desks, there'll be a few... have a good week.

I'm getting excited, too, and I'm not even going to the crop. But I promise to be there in spirit. BTW, your sneak peek isn't really informative! But your risque knee was (grin).

Have a great WOYWW, a fun time at the crop, and I'll wait for the photos you bring back from the crop. No number yet, but I'm sure you know where to find me.

Where?! I don't see it! Must be blind or getting old! I do love the JOFFY stamps sitting out. And that new flower stencil looks pretty cool. I may have an extra ATC ..need to tally up my emails for a final count. I'll email you if I do so we can maybe swap. Thanks for the earlier visit! Hugs and Happy WOYWW! Nan G #10

Oh, I've got a job for you on Friday! I've left a whole pile of bits at Julia's that need turning into a craft hamper for the main raffle prize. Perhaps you can weave your magic touch on it!! I just don't have time, the next couple of days are bonkers!
You'll be at the hall early on Sat morning with Julia, so have a peek at the bags then before the hordes arrive!
See you soon :-)
Hugs, LLJ 21 xx

You have JOFY stamps I am so envious right now and you are going to the crop. I wonder if they tape off a bit of floor for you again, gosh that did make me giggle. Have a wonderful time, save an ATC for me I will swap with you if you can.

Looking forward to Saturday - it'll be great to see you and all your stash in action. I loved watching you make those Xmas cards 2 years ago, such a smooth process, doing a load of them "at once" and something I could use some tips on. Enjoy your sleepover at Julia's :) See you soon.


Happy near 5 year WOYWW!

BJ said...

Have a great time at the crop, maybe I'll come one year too. Shame no ATC's left for various others. It would seem that the neighbour was OK with my harp playing, although not sure they'd complain anyways LOL Thanks for the visit. BJ#77
