Happy Anniversary WOYWW 312

So, we have arrived at the 6th anniversary of this, the best blog hop in the world... and all dreamt up by Julia... You know what you have to do.. link up here and have fun!  Thanks Julia, for providing the wherewithall for this wonderful way to spend Wednesdays... and thanks to all of YOU for making it such fun and providing such friendship.
First, the "desk"...
 A pile of journals, (I've been working in the A5 one, and the A4 one is the one I worked on at crop, and I had to add a coat of varnish to the page, as something was making the pages stick together) and err.. oops a new Moleskine one I "just happened to see" at the weekend.. well it doesn't hurt to have spare(s) does it... underneath all of those are a couple of music books that Julia/Jan donated to a worthy cause and I'll do something "useful" with soon...
This was my pile of atcs I took to crop to swap (having kept one for my official swappee today, and one for myself)

As promised last week, I'll share a closer look at the ones I received at crop.
 Janet, Chris





Hettie (Sam) Eliza
Zoe, Julia






Elizabeth, Cardarian (Dolores)
 Jo (Twiglet), Annie (Wipso)





Kyla, Jan (LLJ)
Shaz, Nikki




Margaret, Mary Anne












Debbie (Tattered Rocks), Morti


Mine! (I forgot I'd got the "pre" shot, or I wouldn't have included it again here..



I think you'll agree they are all absolutely fabulous

So, this is a lot longer than it should have been, but I guess I'll be forgiven today Julia... Happy WOYWW everyone, here's to the next 6 years!

These are simply WONDERFUL, Helen. Very impressive. Yours are simply gorgeous. I adore those flowers. I bet they are a die cut. They make the ATC so special, too.

You know where I live, since I don't have a number yet. And happy, happy 6th Anniversary.

Bridget Larsen said...

Wow they are gorgeous atcs you have there. Well you are the one I am sending my ATC to so please email me your address:

Happy 6th WOYWW to you all. Those ATCs are fantastic.

Lunch Lady Jan said...

Thanks for being a supporter of my blog, pretty much from day one. I'm very grateful to Julia, because without WOYWW, it's doubtful that we would have met....and that would have been a real shame.
Thanks for your beautiful ATC, I chose a pink one :-)
Hugs, LLJ 16 xxxx

Nikki C said...

Hey Helen if you send to Maggie who is below me on the forgotten asterisk then I'll send mine to Debbie who is below the one I did it proper lol

Neet said...

A visit to the crop, a new Moleskin AND a gorgeous array of atc's. Helen, you are one lucky lady.
Have a wonderful Anniversary Day.

Hi Helen, great ATC's and good to see all the others! More stuff! You will have to move out soon! By the way......still fairly new to all this! What's a crop?

scrappystickyinkymess said...

Ah phew. I can see you managed t repair the cube. One day someone will create the perfect adhesive... I can't believe EVERYONE didn't title their post And Now We Are SIX! There was just no alternative.

Love the ATC overview - I'll probably do one next week but I have a few more on the way...

Happy 6th-anniversary WOYWW!

I loved the swapping - it's ridiculously cool and therefore perfect for WOYWW! I'm so glad you picked up another journal..I was worried tha tone day you might run out.

Annie said...

Oh what a wonderful six years it's been Helen. We really are part of such a lovely bunch aren't we? What a wonderful bunch of ATCs you've got there already.
Have a great day.
Hugs,

Lisca Meijer said...

I totally agree! They are awesome! What a great collection. Each very different. I hope to participate next year. I just have to get organized in advance as may is our travelling month.
I’m still travelling but managed to have internet today so I’m visiting as many of you as I can. Happy anniversary all! Six years is quite a long time.
Have a good week and CU Wednesday

MaggieC (Silvercrafter) said...

Thank you for your birthday visit today. You are right, Helen, we did swap at the Crop and I have yours safe and sound. I intended to show more of mine today but ran out of time so I will put them all in next week. Have a lovely crafty week. xx Maggie #8

Elizabeth said...

Definitely agree, Helen, all the ATCs are fabulous! I've been thinking about all the notebooks I have accumulated over the years, thinking I should do something with them instead of just hoarding :) Happy WOYWW 6! Have a great week. Elizabeth x #54

Fiona@Staring at the Sea said...

What a lovely selection of ATCs.....and journals! I'm not joining in today as Blogger is refusing to place nice. I wanted to stop by though and wish you a Happy 6th Anniversary x

Ayala Art said...

awesome group of ATCs!

Belinda Basson said...

Thanks for the visit already. Wow that is quite a haul you got there at the crop. I know I have said it before, but one day I really want to make it to a crop...perhaps I will start saving for the 10th one...What do you think? As for the new moleskin that you just had to have...other girls have handbag or shoe fetishes...so what is another journal or two? Love and hugs from sunny SA. #26

Twiglet said...

It never ceases to amaze me how everyone tackles our little crafty celebration so differently. Thanks lots for yours Helen is beautiful. Happy 6th WOYWWaversary! x Jo

pearshapedcrafting said...

They are such a lovely bunch to ATCs aren't they! I may have to redirect folk here when i get back from France as you have photographed them so well!
I can at least match you on the new Moleskine (2 actually, waiting to be used) as I have two nearly completed - different sizes of course!! Hugs, Chrisx 65

Cardarian said...

Hi Helen!

So glad to have seen you at the crop! Happy WOYWW Anniversary! It is wonderful isn't it? I see you have stocked up on Journals - love the moleskin but I haven't seen them anywhere here - I bought mine at home! Enjoy the day and I hope to see you soon again!
Lots of hugs,
Cardarian

Hettie said...

Happy Anniversary Helen. I did fear I might not get here!!
Great crop of ATCs there. I will share mine next week.
I am guessing that is a tongue-in-cheek comment about being tidy!!! I am never tidy!!
Hugs

Happy WOYWW 6!

Thank you for your kind comments on my blog. I'm a bit slow getting round this week!

Seeing all the ATCs you picked up makes me realise how few I actually collected...
