WOYWW 311 - crop plus one or 6 minus one..

Welcome back to Wednesday (again!)  Seems so much has happened since we last met here... Julia would like us once again to link a short (yeah, right!) post sharing our workspaces this week...
But Saturday we met and we crafted and chatted and chomped on cake (amongst other things) - I've already shared ALL the photos here so will just put one or two here again in case you just want a taster or missed them...
 LtoR Dolores, Julia, me, Fiona, Kyla, Diane (Morti), Mary Anne, Hettie (standing in front), Fiona, (Lisa in front) Cindy, Debbie,Chris, Jan, Maggie. Sitting, Lisa Jane and Zoe.

(I really must learn how to crop my photos...)
I love this photo of Jan, and so nice to see her sitting for a few minutes!
I know I should really keep this photo of the atc's I received until the big day next Wednesday, and will share some close ups then, (the light is atrocious here this evening - taking these Tuesday evening - after a day of downpours, hail storms, wind, sun, you name it) -  but aren't they fabulous!







quickly to finish, some more new stuff -though,  as those of you who were there on Saturday know, these arrived last week as the Crazy Birds came with me...
(Julia, you were the only one I stamped them for, I made the others do their own!!)

AHHH! The crazy birds others are talking about. How awesome that you shared. You are such a good stamper.

I want to thank you for being the inspiration of my ATCs this year. I once again made a masterboard. Well, several, in fact. And you were the inspiration behind it. Glad you got one of mine because I'm not really a stamper!

Glad to see what ATCs others made, too. Yes, I enlarged the photo to see what everyone had made.

No number yet, but you will surely know where to find me (grin).

Thanks Helen

It's good to see the day from another's viewpoint! It's a bit like being at a wedding, you try and chat to everyone and then the day's gone and you've only seen a part of it!! I liked your journal page where we all signed our names...great idea!
Hugs, LLJ 15 xxxx

My name is Cindy said...

So glad I'm not the only one who showed and told!! But no links so still a surprise I think. Those bird stamps are now officially on my must have list - thanks Helen, I hadn't seen them before!! Can't believe we have to wait a whole year to do it again. Happy WOYWW, Cindy #25 (I'm guessing Julia was asleep on the job this morning as I didn't link that early to get such a low number!!)

Christine said...

So sorry I could not make it - would like to exchange ATCs if you have any left though. I was hoping to start my journal while at the Crop but ....
Have a good week

Julia Dunnit said...

I'm honoured and thank you -Ijust the sort of thing that I wouldnt have got to do at the crop, and I intend to use them too..they are unearthed and staring at me from the desk! The ATCs were amazing werent they..every year I think we cant keep coming up with ideas...and am proved wrong. Love that!

Shaz Brooks said...

Hi Helen, fab pics. Love the Crazy Birds, waiting for mine to arrive. Not been mad keen on many of his stamps of late, the blueprints just didn't grab me. But these birds? Had to have them! Love the crop so much,it's lovely to meet & chat with all the friends we've made on here. Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #20 xxx

You see why I often moan about adhesive! That poor cube is looking a bit lopsided. Grrr. I think it is actually a combo of the adhesive (I tried three different ones, none I was totally happy with) and the fact the cube is in the ATC pocket so squashed for a while. It needs a bit of encouragement to POP :)

Love the birds, as you know....

Happy pre-anniversary WOYWW!

Thanks for visiting - the ATC's look brilliant - sounds like you had a great day ! Sorry not to make it but we have been away so much that the garden HAD to be done as we have more time weekends away coming up - we have had the same bonkers weather out here in the wild west of Wales too - will summer even come !

Lizzie said...

Hi Helen, looks as if you had a great time at the crop too. I'm sorry I missed it - I'd have loved to go too!

You have a wonderful collection of ATC's there - I'm sure you'll have a lovely time looking at them and taking in all the beautiful details. A ready-made art collection!

And stamps! I'm playing with stamps again this week - after a long break from that branch of papercrafting. It's been lovely and I've made some cards for the first time in months.

Have a happy week!

What fun you all had at the crop, Helen! I love all your ATCs too. Thank you for your lovely comment. Not sure how much creating I'll be able to do from here on in but wanted to do something before I started my chemo tomorrow! Thank you for your kind words.
