  Six years 
                               SIX Years.                                                                 
My room was so untidy last night with so many projects out I had to take time to put things away and get my thoughts in order. But my head is full of ideas at the mo and all my surfaces are still pretty much covered!!

So here’s one desk. I’m not quite sure where I am going with that flower thing.
But at least I can see it.

Inspiration stuck as I was putting away my scan n cut.
Hoping if I leave this die and card blank together it will get done eventually.
(The die just fits those panels!)

Only four projects on the go on this desk – A silver wedding card, some weird sunflowers I found when tidying up and just had to colour in, a ‘nail varnish’ card for the lady who does my nails and some bottle labels top left. Glary photo, the sun is bright this morning!

But I know what you’ve really come to see! Yes I am joining in with the great ATC swap and I have a few spares if anyone would care to trade. Or even if you just want one. 
Leave me a message.

Thank you all for being so wonderful and supportive the last few years, of all the online groups I have joined this is proving to be the most enduring, largely due to the wonderful Julia and her delightfully thoughtful and funny posts which were the reason I ‘joined up’ in the first place. 
A kindred spirit, who introduced me to many more.
Happy WOYWW everyone!!

Hi Cindy,
I see your name next on the list, so I will be sending you an ATC. Don't worry, I saw your post with all the ATCs that you collected at the crop, so I won't send you another koala one :) Let me know your mailing address and I will get it in the mail. Happy 6th Anniversary woyww :)

Goodmorning Cindy... and how awesome that I will get one of your ATCs... I love them! And yep, I'm next on the list! I would like to send you one of mine back so please leave me a comment (so I have your email address) and I get back to you via email to exchange addresses. Happy woyww and happy anniversary!

Four projects on the go! Wow you are a busy lady.
Love the ATCs. I love the idea of exchanging them. Might join in next year if Julia does it again...
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

It was a lovely morning, wasn't it? That Julia came over and made me sit in the sun and drink coffee, lol!! I like the silvery bits for the card, you know and bling, can never have too much of it, lol!
Are those the flowers you made at the crop? They were so pretty and you whizzed them out, lol :-)
And you're right, there are kindred spirits on here and I'm thankful I've had the chance to meet you....
Hugs, LLJ 13 xxxx

Your ATCs are so cute. Good idea leaving out the makings of the card--it will get done that way! Happy WOYWW 6th Anniversary! Sandy Leigh #52

Your ATCs look even better in the flesh. I have one of those Messy Mats. 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

I have to agree with you about Julia being so kind and nurturing. Before I decided to join WOYWW (that first year), I explained to Julia I wasn't a stamper, I didn't make cards, and I didn't scrap. That was mostly who were around the first year. But over the years, more and more people have joined who are into mixed media, sewing, and altered crafts, so I now feel right at home. And of course, although we've never met in person, I LOVE her. She's definitely the glue that holds us together.

So glad to see your ATCs. I'm glad you got one of mine, and I look forward to getting one from you, too. Nope they haven't arrived yet.

And thanks for your support of me, too. It means the world to me. Happy, happy 6th WOYWW anniversary from #1.

Julia Dunnit said...

Oh Cindy, what a lovely thing to say! Thank YOU. Now what's this about that flower 'thing''s looking lovely. I like the card for your nail lady too..crikey I can't cope with more than one thing on the go at a time, I feel puny!

Jac Desordre said...

I want to come over and rummage around in that bucket of leafy die cuts. That looks like a fun container! And you've given me an idea to separate my die cuts. I have them in several containers but no broken out by theme like foliage and... not foliage. Actually I have no idea what is in all of them except a lot of die cuts!

Love the flowers, so whatever that project turns out to be it will be lovely. Interesting tri-fold card with the dies. Great silvery interesting wedding card too. But the star of the show are your happy ATCs! How much fun are they?! Happy playing today! Judy #73
